The raiders that came to Richmond. Glen Allen. Henrico co, May 14, 1864. To the Editor of the Dispatch: Owing to travel having been temporarily suspended on the railroad by a portion of the track having been burned by the vandal raiders on Wednesday morning last, it has been somewhat difficult to apprize your readeroad, adjoining Mrs Hopkins's; Mrs Allen's house occupying an intermediate position between the two fires.

The raiders that came to Richmond. Glen Allen. Henrico co, May 14, 1864. To the Editor of the Dispatch: Owing to travel having been temporarily suspended on the railroad by a portion of the track having been burned by the vandal raiders on Wednesday morning last, it has been somewhat difficult to apprize your readers of said raiders' depredations in these parts, and although in this brief account I must necessarily omit many interesting details, yet enough may be written to prove that the Yankees have lost none of their thieving propensities, or that any one portion of the grand army are more moral or honorable, or braver than their brethren in arms in other sections of the grand campaign. On Wednesday morning, about 5 o'clock, a servant man from Dr John M Sheppard's, residing about a mile from this place, came down breathless with the intelligence that an immense cavalry force (say 15,000 men) were at his master's, and would soon be here, making, by the way, the t

The veracious officers announced the defeat of Lee by Grant, the taking of Petersburg by Butler, the death of Longstreet, and similar lies. Providentially, Dr McCabe was in the city attending to his duties, or he too would have had to share the fate of the Rev Mr Winston. God grant that the news we hear from Gen Lee's army may be, without abatement, a fact. If so we may thank Him, and take fresh heart for the conflict. Resident. P.

At Mr James Winston's, Sr, at Dr John M Sheppard's, at Mrs Hopkins's, on the Mountain Roan, at Mr Rowe's; indeed all along in their route, the devils appropriated everything they could lay their thievish hands upon, including all the horses and mules.

Mrs Hopkins's loss is heavy in crops destroyed, fences burnt, and bacon and other stores stolen. Mr Rowe's, Dr Sheppard's, and Mr James Winston's losses are heavy. They captured Capt Geo Hopkins, who was on a Court-Martial, and in fetal violation of every honorable or decent instinct, took prisoner the Rev.

They soon broke open the ice house, containing a quantity of bacon that Mrs Allen had stored there, taking the whole, including some few pieces belonging to the Rev Dr McCabe, and helped themselves incord at her breast, and witness with an anguished heart the repeated defilement of her child, a girl of about seventeen, Mrs Allen estimates her loan in stores, horses, mules, grain, fowls, wood burned, and garden injured, at about $25,000.

They captured the overseer, Mr Walker Luck; stole two watches from the servants and sundry articles of clothing, and among the latter class were guilty of a brutality so gross, so revolting, so horrible, that the open of the chaste writer must be withheld. Suffice it to say that an aged servant woman had to stand, with a drawn sword at her breast, and witness with an anguished heart the repeated defilement of her child, a girl of about seventeen, Mrs Allen estimates her loan in stores, horses, mules, grain, fowls, wood burned, a
