By the arrival yesterday of two ladies from Wheeling
, we have obtained some information of the condition of affairs in Pierpont
's dominions.--That demagogue, who by accident presides over the people of Northwestern Virginia
, is exercising a tyranny more odious and oppressive, if possible, than that of his master, Lincoln
A short time since, Judge George W. Thompson
, of the Wheeling Judicial Circuit
, was released from a long and tedious imprisonment at Camp Chase, and returned to his home in Wheeling
The day after his arrival, Pierpont
had him re-arrested, and at last accounts he was still in prison.
Hon. Lewis Steenrod
, another prominent citizen of Ohio county
, was arrested by order of Pierpont
on the same day.--Mr.
S. has been in exceedingly delicate health for some time, and his recovery is not regarded possisible, yet Pierpont
was unfeeling enough to send him word that he intended to make him take the oath of allegiance before he died.
Other acts of oppression are related, which have caused the loyal people of that section to long more earnestly than ever for the day of deliverance.
