Western Virginia represents that many of the best citizens of Raleigh and Fayette counties have had to abandon their homes and seek refuge in Monroe, in consequence of the outrages perpetrated by invading parties of Yankees. Some, having been captured by the foe, refused to take the degrading oath of allegiance, and were rent to Columbus, Ohio. The people of our Western counties are in a high state of excitement, and are urging the Government to rend more troops for their protection.
