Libby Items.

--The clerks at the Libby prison yesterday were very busy receiving and disposing of prisoners. One hundred and eighty of the raiders captured about the city were brought in, among them three commissioned officers. Since the beginning of this raid ten Yankee officers have been captured and deposited in this prison, among a list of whom we noticed the name of Surgeon M. D. Fergusson, of the 8th Pennsylvania.

The prisoners are being fed on corn instead of flour bread, and are said to prefer it. We saw and tasted some of the bread last evening, and found it of most excellent quality.
