Republican falsehoods.

One of the most estimable and prominent among the gentlemen from the Northwest now exiled from their homes and sojourning in this city, calls our attention to the tissue of lies which occur in an article copied into this paper yesterday morning from a Baltimore paper, and by that paper taken from that infamous sheet, the Wheeling Intelligencer. The article relates to the fight at Rich Mountain and succeeding events. We notices some of its falsehoods.

It states that ‘"Ex-Lieut. Gov. Wm. L. Jackson"’ ‘"was killed at Cheat Mountain Pass."’--Col. Jackson is safe with his regiment at Monterey. It states that Col. Lowry Wilson, of Morgantown, was killed at Rich Mountain Col. Wilson is now in this city.

A statement made by the Black Republican editor, which our informant considers especially unjust and outrageous, is that Col. Heck had declared after his arrest that ‘"six weeks ago he felt that he was on the wrong side."’ Our informant knows Col. II. well, and utterly discredits the statement. He believes him to be true and loyal to Virginia, and is confident that he never could have been induced to make such a confession as that attributed to him.
