Prison Items. – There was but one tenant in the cage last night – a man named B. F. Miller, put in for threatening personal violence to Elizabeth Weilster. At the Libby Prison there were no arrivals during the day. Some departures are expected on Thursday. At Castle Thunder 17 deserters and stragglers were brought in. The tenants of the city jail, numbering 100 or more, are under military guard, owing to the arrival of sundry men charged with offences against the Government, and who are soon to be tried.
