A fight in the Rappahannock.
The United States revenue steamer Tiger, Lieutenant David Evans commanding, arrived yesterday from Hampton Roads, towing the Wolf Trap, light ship, which had parted her moorings in the late heavy gales.
While on the passage up, on the 27th, in the afternoon of that day, the Tiger was towed into toat Banshee, Captain --, in order to clear a rope which had fouled the propeller, and anchored under Windmill Point near the Commodore Reed, Lieutenant Commander Hooker, say within five hundred yards of the shore.
Lieutenant Hooker informed Lieutenant Evans that he had intelligence that was reliable that about one thousand of Mosby's men were in the immediate neighborhood, and that they had been under arms all the previous night, and expected some trouble from them that night.
