The Feeling in the Lower Valley.
We have had an interview with a gentleman who left Shepherdstown, in Jefferson county
, in the early part of last week, and who succeeded in making his escape safely through the Lincoln lines
The thieves have plundered the counties of Jefferson
, and Clarke
, pretty effectually, and to such an extent that there are very few negroes or horses left in that rich section.
Fears were entertained that no corn crop can be planted for want of hands and horses.
The enemy have succeeded in reconstructing the Baltimore and Ohio railroad, and are now running trains through daily.
These trains were found to be of great service in removing the remains of those of their hirelings who fell at Kernstown
We are gratified to learn, as we do from our informant, that the people in that section are more determined than over in their opposition to the abolition tyranny, and that although now under the iron heel of the despot they are hopeful and confident of a final rescue from their thraldrom.
