Dead. --Colonel Raulston, the leader of the plot among the Yankee officers to break out of prison at Danville, some ten days ago, and who was shot through the body in the melee, died of his wound on Thursday night. He was colonel of the Twenty-fourth New York cavalry. --Raulston was represented by his associate prisoners, the Register says, to be a fearless, reckless character, insensible to consequences. He maintained, to his last breath, that his scheme for overpowering the guard, sacking the town, and making his escape, would have succeeded had not his colleagues flinched from the desperate nature of the work before them. He received a decent interment in the prisoners' burying ground.
