Western Spies. --In the C. S. Circuit Court yesterday, John Yates, Samuel Wheelberger, George Cooper, Daniel Cooper, G. W. Ram say, John Thume, Samuel Bowman, Wm. Coffman, John D. Kester, and Wm. Dunisp, of Rockingham county, were before Judge Halyburton for harboring deserters and aiding and piloting them to the Yankee lines. The Judge, after hearing the evidence, decided that the offence was committed in another district, and discharged them. Commissioner Watson, as soon as this decision was made, issued a warrant for their arrest, and they were taken into custody by Deputy Marshal Henry Myers, to be sent to Staunton for trial before Judge Brockenbrough, of the Western District. Of course the Secretary of War has concluded that these men are subject to civil and not military trial, they being unconnected with the army in any way. Most of them are old men, and have the appearance of trappers and woods prowlers.
