c Mirror, published at Leesburg, Loudoun county, Va., says, in its issue of Wednesday Inst: Federal troops have been hovering on the Maryland side of the Potomac opposite the Loudoun line for several days, though no attempt has as yet been made by them to come over. On Monday, a body of them opposite White's Ferry, about three miles from Leesburg, commenced a fire across the river at a party of Confederate troops on this side. A detachment of Capt. Rogers' Artillery, commanded by Lieut. Heaton, answered their call, exchanging with them some thirty or forty shots. The Yankees have no cannon, but seem to be armed with the Minnie muskets, which they use with some dexterity, but altogether without effect, as nobody on this side the river has been "hurt." Gentlemen with spy-glasses assert that they saw several on the other side fall, and that they were picked up and carried off. The firing from the Maryland shore is still progressing at the time of this writing. --Tuesday eve
