A raid--"a Handsome Affair."
Brigadier-General Fitzhugh Lee
has just achieved a "raid" into the Yankee
lines beyond the Rappehannock, which resulted handsomely.
He killed and captured 200. With the 1st, 2d and 3d Virginia regiments of cavalry, on the 23rd instant, he made his way to within five or six miles of Falmouth
, which stands immediately opposite Fredericksburg
Near Hartwood Church he fell upon the enemy's pickets, drove, them wildly before him, killing and wounding many and bringing off 150 prisoners. These arrived here Saturday morning and were assigned to quarters, where they will remain-until paroled.
The prisoners taken include one captain and four Lieutenants
They represent seven
different regiments, viz: 3d, 4th, 12th and 16th Penn. Cavalry, 1st Rhode Island Cavalry, and 4th New York and 23d Mess.
