The paroled story. --Mr. James Harrison, who was charged upon the authority of Lieut. Lee in the New York Tribune with asserting to him (Lee) in the Libby prison, that three hundred of Stoneman's Yankees could have entered this city and destroyed a great deal of property, and gotten off safely, utterly denies the story. He asserts, on the contrary, that he assumed that the city was so well guarded that Stoneman could not have reached it at all — making his remark to this effect in reply to Lee, who contended that the city could have been surprised by a small force.
was estimated at not less than 400,000, which you will perceive is an immense loss to the enemy. The return march was now commenced, and the counties of Calhoun, Gilmer, Braxton, &c., passed through, but nothing worthy of note occurred. In these counties the people are almost a unit in the cause of the South, and long for the day of deliverance to arrive.--Large numbers of horses and cattle were brought out from the disloyal counties. I was particular to note the condition and sentiment in some of the counties through which we passed, and my conclusion is this: A large majority of the people of Marion county are strongly Southern in their feeling; Harrison is loyal to a great degree; Barbour, some good feeling; Upshur, very unsound; Lewis, a majority sound, but a large minority very rampant in their disloyalty; Doddridge, a hot bed of fanaticism and disloyalty; Ritchie, not much, if any, better. In Monongalia and Preston there is very little Southern feeling. H. D. B.
