The little village of Ashland has been favored with frequent calls from the enemy during the war. Not less than eight times has it enjoyed the exhilarating excitement of a raid, varied occasionally by skirmishes and battles.--Ashland was, of course, not forgotten during the recent visitation of General Custar. Some of its citizens had to pay a higher price than usual for a fine equestrian spectacle, which hitherto they have enjoyed free of expense. Corn and fodder, knives and forks, and coffee-pots, were laid involuntarily upon the altar of the glorious Union. It is due to the officers to say that they endeavored to prevent these robberies, and gave orders that no private house should be entered. It is believed that they desired to enforce those orders, but found it impossible in every case to lay hold of the offenders.
