Another Foray upon the Central railroad.

On Wednesday, after the train for Richmond had passed Frederick's Hall, a station on the Central railroad fifty miles from Richmond, a force of the enemy made a descent upon the place, and settle to the out-buildings and water tanks. The depot building, which contained no stores of value, and was partly occupied by the agent and his family, was not injured. It is presumed that some damage was done to the track; but as no direct communication was had with the place yesterday, the extent cannot be stated. The Yankees seem determined to break up this important avenue of communication with the West, and their audacity in their several attempts has been a matter of some astonishment, though, up to this time, they have signally failed to accomplish their purpose.
