FACTS CONCERNING THE REBELS BROUGHT IN ON THURSDAY:They numbered 30 and were citizens of Monongalia, Marion and Wetzel counties, and probably one or two from Pennsylvania. We know of 5 or 6 horses stolen by them. If they had arms they threw them away before surrendering. Their horses numbering 30, were captured by the cavalry men while fleeing to the mountains. The U. S. soldiers then left and Company A, of the 148th V. M., Col. Brown, took up the search for the men. They surrounded them, and the rebs. finding out their fix concluded to surrender which they did on Wednesday morning to Preston Trowbridge and Richard Neugen, belonging to Company A. They claim to have enlisted in Company A, 19th Virginia cavalry (rebel) Capt. John Righter, about the 10th of May last. They were found 6 miles Southwest of Kingwood, in Cheat River hills.
