--Capt. Thos. P. Turner, who has had charge of the Libby prison and its dependencies for many months past. was yesterday promoted to the rank of Major.--This increase of rank was caused by a steady and undeviating adherence to duty at once onerous and full of responsibility. It is not known yet whether the promotion carries with it a removal from the scenes of Major Turner's present labors.
