mmenced marching, the Stafford hills were bristling with Yankee bayonets, and cannon within a mile were polluting into the streets of the town. All the troops acted nobly, four companies of the 40th Virginia regiment having, the night previous, mat and repulsed the enemy three times, and when the order came to fall back it was done, though done with many a regret. Our pickets shoot some of the enemy every day. Fourteen were killed by one company of the 40th two days since, and yesterday six more were killed while hauling a seine on the river. A sad accident occurred on the last occasion, in the shooting of Edmond Taylor, of Caroline, by one of the companies while out on picket. He had acted as guide to our pickets, was highly thought of, and was of the most influential parentage and connexion. We can often see the enemy's camp.

Dashing affair in Rockingham. From unquestionable sources and positive information, we have received particulars of a brilliant brush which took place in Rockingham between some companies of the 7th Louisiana, under Col. Harry Hays, and a large force of Indianian, resulting in the total rout of the latter, with many killed and wounded. The 7th and 8th Louisiana (Gen. Taylor, Ewell's division,) being camped some eight or ten miles from Swift Ron Gap, two companies of the 7th and one of the 8th, under Maj. D. B. Penn, with one field piece were ordered out on a scout to look after the enemy, reported to be prowling in the rear near the Shenandoah, and in force. Taking the mountain road, and proceeding some distance without meeting with an enemy, heavy firing was heard in the direction of the river. The fusillade was perfectly audible in camp, and supposing Major Penn to be engaging the enemy, Colonel Hays sallied forth with the rest of the 7th and an additional piece of Bowyor's
