The fight in the Valley.
From private sources we have obtained some additional particulars of the resent affair in the Valley
, which has already been noticed.
It seems that on Wednesday last a portion of the Maryland
battalion, attached to the command in the Valley
, went down as far as Kernstown
, near Winchester
, and captured eight Yankee pickets, two of whom subsequently escaped.
On the following day a large force of Yankee cavalry came up within a few miles of Woodstock
, where they captured some half dozen of our pickets.
A portion of the command of Gen. Jones
attacked and completely routed them, following them to Newtown
, some fifteen miles down the Valley
The number of Yankees killed is not known, but was certainly much greater than the number lost by us.
