Affairs on the Rapidan.
We understand that twice during the past week the cavalry of the enemy have dashed across Robinson
's river, the north fork of the Rapidan
, and driven in our pickets.
On the first occasion no loss resulted, but the last dash they made they captured some eight or ten members of the 6th Virginia cavalry, which was on picket at the time.--They are also said to have killed a man belonging to the regiment named Price
, from Pittsylvania county
During this last raid they paid a visit to Madison
C, H., but did little or no damage, except to carry off the mail matter they found in the Post Office.
The enemy is represented to have been quite active during the past week in scouting and changing camps, principally with a view, it would seem, to get supplies of wood.
