LOUP CREEK, December 22, 1864.

Colonel J. H. OLEY, Commanding, &c., Charleston:
Two of my scouts returned from Raleigh Court-House last evening. They report that Witcher has gone to Saltville with all of his command. Sweeney's company [battalion] has been broken up. Part of his men went off with Witcher; the rest is scattered.
Thurmond, who is now at Crump's Bottom, beyond New River, says that he shall disband his company or march it into the Federal lines before he will go to Richmond. There has been quite a stir among the bushwhackers by reason of some of them being ordered to Richmond-this is what broke up Sweeney's company [battalion].
J. WHITLEY, Captain, Commanding Post.

Colonel J. H. OLEY, Commanding, &c. Charleston:
I have just learned that a party of rebels under Captain Amick has been committing some depredations in Nicholas County, in the vicinity of Captains Mann's and
Ramsay's camps, their men being absent in Greenbrier at the time. There were about forty of the rebels. The most damage done by them was stealing a few horses. They did not stay long.
