THE LIBBY PRISON HOSPITAL. - This institution, formerly the receptacle of all the Yankee prisoners, has been emptied of them, and is now converted into a hospital, where are cared for about one thousand of the Yankee wounded. The well prisoners have all, with the exception of a thousand or so, been removed to Belle Isle. Lieutenant Turner is in charge of the prison with a corps of very attentive and polite assistants.
