More Prisoners – Another lot of thirteen prisoners, of the 8th Virginia (rebel) cavalry, recently captured in the Kanawha Valley, arrived yesterday by steamer were committed to the Atheneum. Among the number is a Lieutenant Holderby, formerly of Cabell county, who was confused here about a year and a half ago, and was either released upon taking the oath or exchanged, we do not remember which. Holderby’s mother and sister are now in prison in Point Pleasant upon the charge of harboring and hiding the son.
