ish in Loudoun county, opposite here, yesterday, Col. Geary had received information of the intention of the rebels to erect fortifications in that neighborhood.
He crossed the river with Capt. Chapman, and 25 picked men of the Pennsylvania regiment, reconnoitered the vicinity, and found a force of rebels, upon whom he quickly closed, and surprised with volley shots.
After firing two or three volleys the rebels were routed, leaving three men and one horse dead on the field.
The Jeff. Davis Captain.
From a New York paper of the 16th, we take the following:
The Manzoni that brought the intelligence of the seizure of the British steamer, also reports that Capt. Coxeter, of the Jeff.
Davis notoriety, was also at Cardenas, in charge of another privateer — a steamer.
He (Captain Coxeter) fell in with Captain Hevener, formerly of the Mary E. Thompson, at Cardenas.
They recognized each other, and Captain C. told Captain H. to look out or he would be overhauled again.
