From Northwestern Virginia. By the arrival yesterday of two ladies from Wheeling, we have obtained some information of the condition of affairs in Pierpont's dominions.--That demagogue, who by accident presides over the people of Northwestern Virginia, is exercising a tyranny more odious and oppressive, if possible, than that of his master, Lincoln. A short time since, Judge George W. Thompson, of the Wheeling Judicial Circuit, was released from a long and tedious imprisonment at Camp Chase, and returned to his home in Wheeling. The day after his arrival, Pierpont had him re-arrested, and at last accounts he was still in prison. Hon. Lewis Steenrod, another prominent citizen of Ohio county, was arrested by order of Pierpont on the same day.--Mr. S. has been in exceedingly delicate health for some time, and his recovery is not regarded possisible, yet Pierpont was unfeeling enough to send him word that he intended to make him take the oath of allegiance before he died.

It is a matter of surprise that the conservative element of Northern society, which have permitted themselves to be made the tools and instruments of Black Republicanism, do not see that they are themselves to be victims in their turn of the fanatical and agrarian party which they are helping to subjugate the South. But for Virginia, foreigners in the United States would have long ago been deprived of all rights of citizenship, and the Roman Catholics become a proscribed people. The turn of the Episcopal Church would have come next, and it would have fared no better than it did under the old Blue Laws of New England. Not only religion, but Northern property will yet be made to suffer by this war, for if Lincoln's proclamation is carried out Northern commerce will tumble into the same abyss with Southern agriculture.
