--The editor of the Lewisburg Chronicle publishes some facts from a letter dated Charleston, Kanawha county
, June 30:
was then in Charleston
, and Capt. O. J. Wise
's company, the Richmond Blues, left Charleston
about 10 o'clock at night, June 29th, for Gilmer county
, in consequence of having learned that about 100 of the enemy had crossed over and were committing depredations.
's Rockingham Cavalry and Capt. Beirne
's Monroe Rifles had also left, but were expected to return in a few days.
One of the Monroe Company
died on the 29th from measles; he exposed himself imprudently during his sickness.
A company of Riflemen arrived on the 30th from Roane county
, with three prisoners; one of them a delegate to the Wheeling Convention, and the others had violated the persons of two ladies.
The people were talking of lynching them, but the writer thought they would be left in the hands of the legal tribunals.
So far as the writer can judge from what he has seen, the citizens of Kanawha
are loyal, and no indications, at present, of an approaching fight.
