Pan3smag, May 81
The progressof the Federal troops in western
Virginia, as reported by the Wheeling papers,
has been marked by no' hostile 'demonstra
tions of a serious nature. Most of the violent
Secessionists left before the troops arrived.
Stephen Roberts, a leader of the Secessionists
at Glover's Gap, seven miles west of Man
nington, was shot, and instantly killed, by a
squad of Capt. Rage's men, who have posses
sion of that post. It appears that the squad
were scouting, on Tuesday mornirig, and came
across Roberts and two ether men; all armed.
The Lieutenant in command of the: squad call
ed upon the Secessionists to halt, but instead
of doing so, they wheeled about and'fired upon
the soldiers. The fire was returned, and Rob
erts was killed, though the otheritook to their
heels and made their escape. ,
• A number of violent Secessionists have been
made prisoners at various points. The people
'of Western Virginia welcomed' the Federal
troops with great enthusiasm.
The volunteers were hard at work rebuilding
the b grat bridges.
Louisville papers state that the exodus from
the South at present is immense.
An attempt was made by the Secessionists, a
few days ago, at Sedalia, Mo., to assassinate E.
M. Joel, the United States Mail Agent, and one
or two others who endeavored to rescue him.
The trial of Ogilvie Byron 'Voting, for trea
son, is in progress at Cincinnati., The evidence
is strong of his complicity with the rebels.
It is reported that Gen. Pillow has ten thou
sand troops between Memphis and Randolph,
with plenty of steamers for their transporta

daylight, though one was hourly expected.
