erday of a heavy skirmish near Orange Court-House, on Saturday evening commencing at 4 o'clock, and lasting some two or three hours, between a portion of our forces and a body of the enemy, who had crossed the Rapidan from Culpeper county. The firing is said to have been very rapid, and was heard for a long distance on the line of the Central Railroad. No details of casualties on either side have yet reached as, beyond the fact that three hundred of the enemy were captured, including one of Pope's Brigadier Generals, by the name of Prince. There is a report that other commissioned officers were taken, but of this we have heard nothing definite. The enemy were driven back across the river — or, in other words, "changed their base of operations" from Orange to Culpeper county. Direct communication between Richmond and Gordonsville has been suspended for some days past, and it was impossible to learn anything of operations on the Rappahannock lines until yesterday.

One says, on account of a pestilence, which has broken out, and the otherrested in Alexandria last night, and have been brought hither. Several citizens of Fairfax county, arrested under Gen. Pope's orders, and taken to Springfield station, have been released. Considerable excitement exists in Alexandria and vicinnd military circles in Washington, as well as by the hesitation of the rebels, their fear of attacking either McClellan or Pope, and in their hurrying troops from the Gulf States to Richmond. The quiet but effective system inaugurated by Halleck, and carried into operation by McClellan and Pope, with the assistance of the fames river fleet, may well allay all fears of any disasters in Virginia, and will soon put an end to the work of the panic makers here and elsewhere. We are assured that the
