Affairs on the Rapidan. We understand that twice during the past week the cavalry of the enemy have dashed across Robinson's river, the north fork of the Rapidan, and driven in our pickets. On the first occasion no loss resulted, but the last dash they made they captured some eight or ten members of the 6th Virginia cavalry, which was on picket at the time.--They are also said to have killed a man belonging to the regiment named Price, from Pittsylvania county. During this last raid they paid a visit to Madison C, H., but did little or no damage, except to carry off the mail matter they found in the Post Office.

Re-enlistment of Virginia troops. It is highly gratifying to us to publish the fact that among the first troops in General Lee's army to re-enlist for the war is a Virginia regiment — the 1st Virginia artillery, Col, Brown. On the 1st instant the men assembled at their camp, near Frederick's Hall, formed in hollow square, and were eloquently addressed by Capt.

It is particularly gratifying to the people of Richmond, in which city they were organized, to find these two companies of Howitzers, whose blood has marked every battlefield from Bethel to Gettysburg, among the first to take thei

The following is a summary of the news: Lincoln's draft Consolidated --500,000 men called for — the Real Call being for 200,000. Lincoln has issued the following call for troops: Executive Mansion, Washington, Feb. 1st, 1864. Ordered, that a draft for 500,000 men to serve for three years or during the war be made on the 10th day of March next, for the military service of the United States, crediting and deducting therefrom so many as may have been enlisted or drafted into the service prior to the 1st day of March and not heretofore credited. Abraham Lincoln. The Herald says: "The new order is but a consolidation of the two calls previously issued for 300,000 men, nearly half of whom were obtained by volunteering and re-enlistments, and which number, as well as those enlisted up to the 1st of March next, will be credited.
