General Items. - ...A number of our wounded men brought down last evening were carried to the houses of private citizens for nursing. Two trains arrived, the second bringing the wounded. A third was expected last night with Yankee prisoners to the number of five or six hundred. The prison depot is already full. Among the lot of rubbish brought here Tuesday night, were 65 Yankee officers, including one Corcoran, who commanded the 69th N. Y. Regiment, which was somewhat demoralized Sunday by the "rebels."
