As stated in this paper Saturday, the Yankees
made a raid into Woodstock, Shenandoah county
, on Sunday afternoon last.
The first of the party that came in were dressed in the Confederate
They rode in very leisurely, whistling unconcernedly, so as to excite no alarm.
They drew up in front of Nebb's hotel, and fired several pistol shots into a party of gentlemen sitting at the door, wounding in the jaw Mr. John Morris
, of Winchester
, a negro trader.
They carried off Dr. Krebs
, John Morris
, (whom they had slightly wounded,) one of Dr. Magruder
's sons, and a son of Mr. Harrison Ott Messrs. Krebs
, and Ott
, were the only citizens of Woodstock
taken off. They stole about 40 boxes of tobacco, a box of adamantine candles
, (which they strewed in the streets of Woodstock
,) silver spoons, knives and forks, and some clothing from Col. Albert
; took ten horses from Mr. Nebb
's stable; broke into Mr. B. Smith
's drug store, took what they wanted, and stole all his bacon; broke into Travel & Coffman
's store, carried off some cotton cloth, destroyed nearly everything in the store and strewed a sack of salt in the street, and wound up their magnificent effort to make the people of Woodstock
deeply regret their retirement from the late "glorious Union" with them by taking a number of overcoats from Nebb's hotel.
They returned down the Valley
on the same night.
On Friday night week the Yankees
came to Jonesville, Lee county, Va.
, from the Gap
