An engagement in the Valley"capture of Yankees.

Information has reached us, by way of Staunton, that our forces in the Valley had a severe engagement with the Yankees on Thursday last, near Newtown, in Frederick county. We have not learned any of the particulars of the fight, but it is stated upon good authority that we captured some 250 prisoners, a number of horses and arms, besides killing and wounding a considerable number of the enemy. Our loss, as reported to us, was one killed, two mortally wounded, and some six or eight slightly wounded.
