The Daily Dispatch: November 20, 1862., [Electronic resource], The recent skirmishing in Hardy county--Yankee Lies. (search)
The recent skirmishing in Hardy county--Yankee Lies. In our Northern news published this morning there is an "official" dispatch announcing the capture of a part of Imboden's force, which is, perhaps on a par with the greater part of their official dispatches. It appears from the accounts of the Confederates engaged in the fight, on the 9th inst., that Lieut.-Col. Doyle, of Imboden's command with 300 infantry, fought the Yankee force comprised of 400 cavalry, an infantry regiment, and three pieces of artillery, for three days, skirmishing at different points, until he got off safely with his entire wagon train, and only having one man wounded. In Tucker county, a few days before this affair, Col. imboden captured 47 Yankees.

Alleged attack on Imboden. A dispatch of Gen. Wright, dated at Cincinnati on the 13th, says that Gen. Kelly; on the 10th inst., attacked Imboden's rebel camp, eighteen miles South of Moorefield, Hardy county, Va., routed him completely, killing and wounding many, and captured his camp with fifty prisoners and a quantity of arms, besides a large number of horses, cattle, hogs, wagons, &c. The enemy were entirely dispersed and fled to the mountains. A brother of Gen. Pillow captured. A few days since a Federal scouting party, engaged on the Mississippi side of the Mississippi river, opposite Helena, captured a prisoner who proved to be Jerome Pillow, brother of Gen. Pillow, to whom the

On Monday, the 22d ult., Capt. Imboden, with forty men, had a skirmish with the enemy at Wardensville, Hardy county, in which they killed four Yankees, wounded four others, and took two prisoners. The Abolitionists under Milroy, are now stationed in and around Moorefield, and are ruling in Hardy with an iron rod. The loyal citizens of the county are leaving in large numbers. A short time since, a respectable citizen named Welty died, and had to be buried in his own yard, the fiends refusing his afflicted family permission to carry his remains to the burial-ground, which was only some three hundred yards distant. A Yankee Lieutenant Colonel, belonging to the 12th Virginia regiment, was recently captured by a private Confederate soldier named Seaman, who was wounded at Sharpsbur
d the place, were all taken prisoners. They were subsequently paroled by Harness, and sent to Cumberland with accoutrements, but without guns. The Marylanders were deceived about the number of rebels. They were reported four thousand strong. Harness has got himself in a bad box, as he cannot escape capture. Captain Carter, of the Jessie Scouts, was shot in the leg by a rebel female, at Cumberland, last night. The wound is not dangerous.

It contains several stores and mills, and about fifty dwellings.] From Washington.[special Dispatches to the New York Herald.]reported intervention of Foreign powers in American affairs.

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.
From the Border. There was an nows of speculation, received from the army near Fredericksburg yesterday. It was rumored in camp that the Federal army had returned to Alexandria, with a view to take up winter quarters at that point. The Central train brought down from Staunton, last evening twenty four Yankee prisoners, whose capture by Capt. McNeill, is Hardy county, we have here Store noticed. Among the party was the Pierpont sheriff of Barbour county, who we liars, has been very active in carrying out the honest of his Yankee masters in that county, and in collecting revenue from the people to support the hireling of Lincoln in their crusade upon the loyal citizens of the Northwest.
From the border. There was no news by the Fredericksburg train last night. No change has been made in the position of affairs in that vicinity. The Central train of yesterday evening brought to this city another invoice of thirty-two Yankee prisoners, captured last week by the Black Horse cavalry in Hardy county. Passengers by the same train bring a report that our forces at Woodstock. Va. under the command of Gen. Jones, had been attacked by the enemy and routed. The reason was a vagus one, however, and we think needs confirmation.
