Yankee Prisoner Shot. – Monday last, a Yankee
prisoner confined in the building opposite Castle Thunder, was fired at by the
guard, and struck in the arm, rendering amputation necessary. The prisoner was
guilty of a violation of the rules, for which he had been repeatedly warned, and
also for spitting on persons passing along the pavement.
