From Western Virginia, A gentleman who left General Floyd's camp on the 16th inst., gives us some interesting information in regard to the movements of our army in the West, some portion of which we are permitted to make public General Floyd, with his command, left Big Sewell Mountain on Sunday last, and was at New river, in Raleigh county, (twenty-two miles distant,) on Wednesday. His intent on is to get a fight if possible, and will attack the enemy wherever he encounters him. Rosencranz has scattered his forces, and is foraging about the country, committing all kinds of depredations and outrages, in which the Union men are not spared. A portion of his army is in Nicholas county, and the remainder at Dogwood Gap and on the Gauley. It is conjectured that General Lee may start in pursuit, but of this nothing is positively known. We learn with regret that one of the most valuable men in Western Virginia lost his life on Wednesday morning last. His name was John Amick, and

Western Virginia. We learn from Dr. Clarke, who has just reached the city from our forces now in Raleigh county, that Gen. Floyd, with a strong force, had crossed New River at Miller's Ferry, had passed down beyond the mouth of the Gauley, and was directing his march towards Charleston, in Kanawha county. His command will probably cross Kanawha river at Malden, twelve miles above Charleston.--Generals Lee and Loring were still on Sewell mountain, doubtless awaiting to hear of the success of Gen. Floyd's expedition before advancing upon the enemy on the Gauley. We learn that the militia of the country had, by cutting down trees, blocked up the roads leading from the enemy's position in direction of Summersville for a considerable distance. If this is true, and the work has been done effectually, the enemy will be between Gen. Lee on the east and Gen. Floyd on the west, the latter of whom will be able with his artillery to cut off his supplies by stopping the running of stea
Arrival of prisoners. --The Danville train yesterday brought in 45 prisoners, in custody of Captain Phelps, of Floyd's cavalry, and a guard of eleven men. These prisoners are all Virginia Unionists, except two Ohio soldiers. They were captured by our cavalry in Wayne, Kanawha, Boone, and Raleigh counties, on the 24th of October, while they were holding an election under the bogus Government of Wheeling. The poll-books, lists of voters, &c., were also secured. The whole number of prisoners taken was 58, of whom 8 were shot as deserters from our camps, and five others, who had taken the oath of allegiance to the Confederacy, and were found with poll-books in their hands, were left behind to be tried for treason. As a general thing, this party have a more respectable appearance than the majority of their stripe now in our prisons, but there are some hard looking customers amongst them.

Union traitors. --The Central cars brought to this city on Saturday last, eighteen domestie traitors of the Union strice captured in Monroe, Greenbrier, and Raleigh counties Owing to the presence of the eney on several recent occasions on the borders of the counties above named, these concealed force of the South were emboldened to show their colors, and it is to be hoped put in a way to meet the punishment they so richly deserve. The prisoners, on their arrival here, were sent to the Confederate States military prison, where they will be enabled to enjoy the congental companionship of their brother Yankees.
