Federal cavalry raid. During the strategic movements and fighting on the Rappahannock, which have resulted so gloriously for our arms, a large Federal cavalry force, under General Stoneman, made a raid across the Rapidan to the line of the Central Railroad, striking it first at Trevillian's Depot, where, on Saturday, the track was destroyed. We have already published some rather vague accounts of his subsequent movements upon other points of that road, and also upon the Fredericksburg roaficer's plan. The raid was bold and has caused, perhaps, more than its due share of alarm in this community. The Yankees will crow over it as much as they can in order to diminish the force of the terrible blow General Lee has given them.

It was fired on and stopped, but no one hurt. The sick and wounded and officers were paroled to the number of about 300. They arrested no citizen save Mr. J. D Alexander, of Fredericksburg, who was twice in custody and twice released by Col. Davis, who seemed to direct matters, though a superior officer, supposed to be Stoneman, was with the command. Some Government officials adroitly escaped under the garb of citizens' apparel. One of them had most important papers on his person. The Yankees burnt at Ashland two locomotives and tenders and some cars. They tore up a mile or two of road, destroyed all the bridges from Ashland to within five miles of Richmond, and cut the telegraph. They injured no private property. They got a mail, and among other matter got a letter from a correspondent of the Dispatch
