From Western Virginia

Special to N. Y. Times.

WHEELING, April 7.

A telegram just received here informs us that the rebels are retreating before our forces under Gen. Milroy, who has advanced from Cheat mountain and now holds camp Alleghany, lately evacuated by the Confederates.  The rebels have also fallen back from Monterey and Huntsville, and seem to be aiming for Staunton, where they will have railroad escape.
