A Gentleman direct from Wheeling, who arrived here yesterday, reports that ‘"Governor"’ Peirpoint is constantly arresting suspected Secessionists, and sending them to Camp Carlile, near that city; that some personal property belonging to John Knote, Esq., who is now in this section of the State, which had been sent out to West Alexander, was there stopped by a mob and returned to Wheeling; that the trunks of Jefferson T. Martin, Esq., C. S. Marshal, also here, had been seized and their contents confiscated; and in short, that a general reign of terror prevails there, the Southern men being afraid of imprisonment, and the bogus Governor and his minions and supporters ridiculously fearful of the advance of Lee and other rebels.
