Wounded Raiders. Ė Yesterday afternoon eight of Morganís men, wounded in the late fight near Salineville, were brought down to the city and confined in the Atheneum. Their names and residences are: Wm. H. Young, Harrison county, Ky., S. R. Shaw, Richmond, Ky.; Wm. Meyers, Jassamine county, Ky.; James Cardwell, Shelby county, Ky.; J. C. Slaughter, Nelson county, Ky.; Chas. C. Johnson, Wm. Burot, Martin Dethridge, Warren county, and J. L. Walton, Obine county, Tenn.

Some of the men are very badly wounded. Besides these, there are some fifteen more of Morganís men in the prison. They complain that the room in which their wounded friends are confined is hot and filthy.

We learn that the wounded will be removed to Hospital as soon as possible.
