The enemy in the Valley.

From a gentleman who recently arrived here from Winchester we learn that the enemy are again occupying Charlestown in considerable force, and are more villainous in their treatment of the people than they have ever been at any former time. The whipping they received at the hands of Imboden on Sunday week seems greatly to have exasperated them, and they are seeking revenge upon the inoffensive inhabitants.--Some days ago they arrested the Rev. N. G. North and other citizens, whom they treated with shameful indignity. A lady member of Mr. North's family, who remonstrated against his arrest, received a sabre cut across the head.
