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.
