The situation in the Valley.

--We get the following information from the Rockingham Register, of the 27th:

‘ Our pickets now go below Strasburg; and they were at Front Royal on Monday last, from which place they brought up a Yankee prisoner. We cannot tell certainly where Frement's and Shield's forces have gone; but the most prevalent supposition is that they have gone to Eastern Virginia. At all events, they have either gone east or fallen back to Winchester. Where Jackson is we need not state; suffice it to say, that he is in the right place, and will see Messrs. Fremont, Shields & Co. whenever these redoubtable champions desire it. It is thought that neither Fremont nor Shields is specially desirous to see Jackson, as no advantage arises to them from meeting him. They came rushing up the Valley, flushed with the most extravagant expectations of catching and crushing him; but they met him at Port Republic, and after an interesting interview with him they both slunk back like whipped spaniels, and haven't desired to see him since.
