The Daily Dispatch: November 12, 1862., [Electronic resource], From
From Northern Virginia. We mentioned in our issue of yesterday that passengers by the Central read reported that heavy firing was heard in the direction of Culpeper from Gordonsville on Monday, and that the opinion obtained that a severe fight was in progress. It has since transpired that this firing was near Rixeyville, in Culpeper county, between the forces of Gen. Stuart and the advance of the enemy. The affair resulted in a very sharp skirmish, in which the enemy were driven back over the Hazel and Rappahannock rivers. What the loss was on either side we were not able to learn, but officers who came down on the train last evening attach little importance to the engagement, and regard it as a mere skirmish, and not by any means indicating a prospect of an early general battle. The firing is said to have continued at intervals from 7 o'clock in the morning until 2 o'clock in the afternoon.
