From Alexandria.

--A telegraphic dispatch to the Northern press, dated Alexandria, June 28, says:

‘ Information was received from the Zonave camp this morning, announcing the safe arrival of Lieut. Harrigan and the Captain of the Zonaves, whose absence last night gave rise to fears for their safety. Lieut. Hewitt's company returned at midnight, without meeting the Confederate cavairy, Private Murphy, of company E, U. S. cavalry, is still missing. The affair at Claud's Mills seems to have been only another attempt to harass our pickets, who are at present the only victims of their warfare, and to notify us of their presence. They made only two captures, neither of whom were prepared for resistance when pounced upon by about fifteen cavalry from a side road. Private Murphy, of the U. S. cavalry, was for the moment off his horse. The other, a Zonave, was engaged in picking cherries, and without his arms. Another portion of the Confederate cavalry, about forty strong, drove is the United States pickets to within a mile of Claud's Mills, and then retired, without succeeding in making any other captures.
