Northwestern Virginia.

Advices received in this city yesterday give strong hope that the Pierpoint dynasty in Northwestern Virginia will very soon terminate its existence. Our forces are making inroads in that section which it is confidently believed will speedily end in ridding that portion of the State of the disloyalty with which it has heretofore been cursed. A few days since Buckhannon, in Upshur county, was occupied by our forces under Gen. A. G. Jenkins, late member of Congress from the Kanawha district, and it is thought that ere this he has possession of Grafton, the junction of the Baltimore and Ohio and Northwestern Virginia railroads.

As Gen. J. advanced the loyal people of the country were flocking to his standard by hundreds, and it was expected that in a brief period of time he would have a force sufficient to wipe out the remains of Federalism in the West.
