Prison record.

--Business at Castle Thunder yesterday was quite brisk, and the number of arrivals large. In addition to the Confederates who were committed during the day, there were ten or twelve Yankee women, captured at Winchester, given over to the keeper of the Castle. The following is a list of their names: Mary Aun Wheeler. Coshocton county, Ohio; Mary Sweat and Lucy J. Cobb, Meigs county, Ohio; Mrs. Mary E. Res. Margaret A. Ducker, and Miss Virginia Mask, Guernsey county. Ohio; Mrs. A. G. Hatfield, Lancaster, Pa; Mrs. Marsh, Winchester. Va; Miss Lettle Rowan, Pittsburg, Pa; Mary Granigan, Berkeley county, Va; Eden Johns, Harper's Ferry. Some of the above are perhaps wives of Federal officers captured at Winchester, whilst others are believed to be "women of the town, plying their avocations" with the army. Eleven negroes, also captured & Winchester, were consigned to the Castle. They were negroes employed in different capacities in the Federal army.
