Capture of Yankees in Hardy county.

Captain McNeill, commanding Company E, Col. Imboden's cavalry regiment, recently made a successful dash upon Edroy's ordnance and baggage train, five miles below Moorefield, and captured 5 courses and 5 Yankees. He succeeded in getting into camp wish 17 of the Yankees and 48 horses.--This feat was accomplished in full sight of the whole marching column of the enemy, and was done in about ten minutes. Capt. McN. had only 37 men with him at the time. The enemy shelled them furiously as they fled up the mountain side with their prisoners and booty, but without inflicting any damage.
