THE CASTLE. Fifty-eight convicts were sent from Castle Thunder yesterday to the Penitentiary at Saulsbury.

Jim Lane, a free negro, caught trying to cross to the Yankee lines, was received; also, Israel Lapraed, of company F, 53d Virginia, was received. He has just been sentenced by court martial to six months hard labor for desertion.
