The last Yankee Feray. The recent foray of the Yankees into Huntersville, the county seat of Pocahontan county, has given rise to innumerable rumors, and it is impossible to ascertain with satisfaction the truth with regard to it. Four facts, however, are pretty clearly established by a general concurrence of all the rumors on the subject: 1st. The Yankees came. 2d. Our small force ran away. 3d The commissary stores of the Confederate Government were burned, and possibly a private house or two. 4th. The Yankees want off along the same road by which they came. Where they came from and to what point they retreated are things unknown, because it appears there is nobody out there to watch and find out their movements. Of a considerable army of Confederate troops there some weeks since, there were only a few, some two or three hundred, present when the Yankees did come, and they got out of the way with facility. The first rumor was that the Yankees burnt the stores, but it is
spondent at Camp Alleghany, dated on the 6th inst., in which it is stated that no attack has yet been made on that Camp or on Monterey, although it has been confidently expected for several days. The enemy, after destroying what they could in Huntersville, put off in double-quick, not taking time to release a Yankee prisoner, who was confined in jail. Our force recently at Huntersville was about 00, but the Commandant at that post had unluckily given furloughs to about 400, thus leaving aHuntersville was about 00, but the Commandant at that post had unluckily given furloughs to about 400, thus leaving a very small force at that point. But for this deficiency in our force we could have whipped the Yankees off, as they did not number over 500 men. Snow has been falling at Camp-Alleghany for the past 35 hours, and is still falling. Notwithstanding, however, the severities of the weather, the soldiers are all contented, and prepared to drive the mercenaries from our soil.
