Prison Record.

--Among the prisoners received at the Libby prison yesterday were Capt G C Rose, 4th Missouri cavalry, and Lieuts J F Ausbrandi, of the same regiment, and J L Lesley, 18th Penn cavalry, captured at Stafford Court-House on Wednesday evening. There were ten Yankees received from Staunton, captured at Bertyville, Clarke county, a short time ago, and one hundred and ten others, picked up in different quarters. Major Robert Morris, of the 6th Penn cavalry, died quite suddenly at the Libby prison hospital. His remains were buried yesterday afternoon at Oakwood. The officers of his regiment were allowed by Gen. Winder to attend his funeral.

At Castle Thunder W L Soley and -- Razer, 2d Florida regiment, were committed. It seems that Razer had been consigned to the Castle for some offence, and to obtain his release Soley went to Gen. Winder and represented himself as a Lieutenant of Razer's company. Under this representation R. was liberated; but the bogus character of Soley's pretensions having been discovered, they were both subsequently arrested and lodged in the Castle.
