From Northern Virginia.

In consequence of the non-arrival of the Central train up to a late hour last night, we are without even the usual reports derived from passengers by that train. It is a fact no longer necessary to be disguised, that our army has changed its position, and that it has taken up a new line of defence.

A rumor prevailed late last evening that the Adjutant General's office was in receipt of intelligence that a battle had been commenced between the armies of Jackson and Burnside. Whether the report is reliable we are unable to state, but think it not altogether improbable, from movements which were previously reported to be in progress. If any such fight has taken place, it must have occurred near Snicker's Gap, about two miles South of the Shenandoah river, and near the dividing line of Clarke and Loudoun counties. Up to our latest advices from the corps of Gen. Jackson, it had not crossed the Shenandoah.
