good turnpike from Winchester to Alexandria passes through it, and intersects at the former place with one from Washington to Winchester, which passes through Leesburg. It was by one of these roads, doubtless, that the enemy expected to advance and strike our forces in the rear, but the movement was happily anticipated. Hunter has again come to grief, and would save his future reputation by resigning his commission. A letter from one of Mosby's gallant troopers says that "raid" into Maryland was one of great profit; that seven thousand horses were safely brought off by the cavalry, while three or four thousand more were appropriated for artillery and transportation purposes; besides a large number of fat cattle and an immense amount of spoils of every description. From another source we learn that at last accounts the captured stock was being driven down the Valley. From Georgia. There was no official intelligence from Georgia at headquarters last night.

news from the Valley of Virginia. An official dispatch, received yesterday afternoon at the War Department, states that a large force of Yankees crossed the Shenandoah river at Snicker's, on the 18th. At 3 o'clock P. M. they were attacked and driven across the river in confusion. Our loss is stated to be between two and three hundred; that of the enemy much greater. Snicker's Ferry, where the Yankee forces crossed the Shenandoah, is in Frederick county, 156 miles from Richmond. Snickersville, which, from a similarity of name, may be supposed to have been the scene of the fight, is in the western part of Loudoun county, and advantageously situated at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountain.

From another source we learn that at last accounts the captured stock was being driven down the Valley. From Georgia. There was no official intelligence from Georgia at headquarters last night. The telegraph reports a pleasant little affair on the evening of the 19th, in which a line of breastworks and a number of prisoners were captured. It is to be hoped that this is the precursor of more important successes. Judging from the tone of the newspapers of that city, Atlanta is to be defended with heroism, and the belief is general that the great battle for its possession will come off in a few days. The army and the people are in fine spirits, and confident of driving back the invader of their soil.

the famous gunpowder plot of Guy Fawkes bears no sort of comparison.--The Express briefly alludes to these reports, and says they occasion no sort of uneasiness. Grant's position is not a favorable one for successful operations of this kind, and the effort would be but a waste of time and labor. He cannot go many feet below the ater to impede his progress. We consider the idea altogether too absurd for serious consideration. Prisoners taken on Tuesday deny the report of the death of Grant. The story, however, was reiterated by a Confederate officer who came over last evening, and we hear that it was asserted at Gen. Pickett's headquarters on the authority of the Washington Chronicle;; but still we do not believe it. We learn that the New York Herald, of the 18th, makes no allusion to the death of Gen. Grant.

comment in Petersburg. The few shells that have been thrown at the city for two or three days past have produced no damage to property, and inflicted no injury upon persons. Some erratic individual accounts for the apparent inactivity of the enemy by saying that he is industriously pushing forward a grand plot for undermining the Cockade City, which is to be blown up as "by a tremendous blast from the infernal regions"--a scheme, it will be admitted, to which the famous gunpowder plot of Guy Fawkes bears no sort of comparison.--The Express briefly alludes to these reports, and says they occasion no sort of uneasiness.
