Southwestern Virginia. It seems that the enemy are again threatening our lines of railroad in the Southwestern part of the State. We copy from the Lynchburg Republican of yesterday morning the annexed paragraph: We have some very discouraging rumors again from Southwestern Virginia. The enemy is said to be advancing rapidly and enforce on Dublin and Wytheville. We think these rumors exaggerated, and we advise the people not to be alarmed. It is the evident purpose, however, of the enemy to out to pieces our railroad, and destroy our resources of army supplies if he can. Our Government must prevent it at all hazards, and it ought at once to re-instate General Floyd to the command in that quarter. The postmaster of Wytheville endorsee on his post bill to this city that the enemy is 1,200 strong at Gilles Court-House. This we suppose is his strength in that quarter. We cannot believe the rumors that there are from ten to fifteen thousand Yankees in Western Virginia.
