From the Northwest.

Advices from Staunton furnish us the intelligence that some five hundred refugees from Northwestern Virginia have arrived in that town within the past week. They are principally from Barbour and Randolph counties, and representatives of the loyal portion of the population of that region. They state that those who have heretofore been loud in their professions of devotion to the old Union are now availing themselves of every opportunity to dodge the draft which has been ordered in the Pierpoint realms Many of them would gladly become converts to Southernism but that they fear their guilt is too well known to admit of an easy pardon.
