The eastward-bound freight train of the Virginia and Tennessee Railroad made a narrow escape from capture, passing Salem only about half an hour before the Yankees reached it. A train sent from Lynchburg with the Provost Guard, Capt. Otey, also narrowly escaped being taken. It was fired into when within a short distance of the town; but the engineer promptly reversed his engine and escaped safely. No person on the train was hurt. It is reported that there was fighting near Salem Wednesday evening. It is thought that this is the Yankee raid which has been so long threatened in the Yankee papers, which they promised should come in at the Valley of Virginia and go out at Weldon, N. C. We learn that the authorities have made arrangements to prevent the consummation of this scheme.--Very little damage can be done to the railroad at Salem, as there are no important bridges near there.
