A dispatch from Pomeroy, Ohio, dated the 6th, says that Gen. Jenkins had taken the town of Spencer, Va., and captured the command of the Federal Colonel, Rathbone.
The dispatch adds:
On Wednesday morning Jenkins's forces entered Revenswood, Va., and on the same evening crossed the Ohio river at Buffington's Island, and came down to Racine, Ohio, where they killed one man and wounded two others, and stole twelve horses.
They then recrossed the river at Wolf's Bar, and encamped for the night.
