Rebel Deserters. Lieut. Knapp, of the 6th West Virginia Infantry, arrived from Clarksburg yesterday, bringing two rebel deserters from the 20th Virginia regiment. The men are brothers. They came within our lines a few days ago and gave themselves up. They represent that more than two thirds of the regiment (the 20th) have recently deserted.
