Hardy,"’ is the latest report we receive from this mountain county of Virginia, and no Lincoln troops nearer than Romney, where there is but one company of cavalry, and a small force at New Creek Station, for the protection of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. There still exists considerable Union sentiment in the western part of the county, around Moorefield, and between that place and Franklin, Pendleton county; but it is stated that some misguided men have expressed a desire to get back to the Confederate side, and that the loyal Southern element is on the increase. A splendid harvest has been saved, and the growing corn looks well. Since Robertson's cavalry visited Hardy and broke up a band of Lincoln soldiers, the people have been in better spirits, and now look for an early deliverance from the dangers and difficulties that have surrounded them. A mail route is to be established between Moorefield and New Market.
