The enemy in Greenbrier county.

The enemy have recently made another raid into Greenbrier county, where they committed a number of depredations. Their number amounted to about one hundred and fifty. They ventured within one mile of Lewisburg, where they burned the barn of Joseph Feamster, jr., containing six horses, provender, &c. They also fired his dwelling, but the timely arrival of a company of Edgar's battalion saved it from destruction. They, also, burned the dwelling, barn, granary, and stable of Austin Hundley, Sheriff of the county, together with his furniture and grain. The snow was several inches deep, and his family were turned out in their night clothes — his wife barefooted.--Mr. H. was kept under guard until his house was so far consumed that he was unable to save anything.
