A Yankee expedition into Greenbrier.

--On the 11th instant. Captain Ramsey, a tory marauder, with forty-two men, made a raid into Greenbrier county, Virginia, and captured about sixty horses, belonging to the Confederacy, and ten men, guarding them. They were pursued by Lieutenant Aulsted, with fifteen men, who rescued our prisoners, recaptured all the horses but eighteen, (fifty or sixty having been captured,) took seven of Ramsey's men prisoners, got nineteen fine guns, and drove the rest of them out of the county. It is said four of them were killed near Meadow Bluff by Captain Snyder's men.
