The campaign in Western Virginia.

--The Gallipolis (Ohio) Dispatch, a paper published on the border of Western Virginia, does not approve of the suggestion, which has been made in several quarters, to withdraw the Yankee army from there into Kentucky. It says:

‘ "If the forces in Western Virginia are drawn off at this time and directed elsewhere, it will be the worst step that can be taken by the Government, unless it is the intention to give up Virginia. We regard Western Virginia as being in a more dangerous condition than for some months past. Armed bands of Secessionists are springing up in all directions, and are only waiting for the Federal troops to slacken their vigilance, when their works of havoc will again commence. They are becoming more desperate and daring in their movements than ever.--In fact, instead of withdrawing troops, there is greater need of sending more into Virginia."
