From the Rappahannock. --There is nothing of interest from General Lee's army. Opposite Fredericksburg, Wednesday, a skirmish occurred in Stafford between our pickets and two companies of Yankee cavalry. There was very little loss on either side, and the enemy soon retired.

h, enlisted 270 men in the 3d Maryland cavalry, 160 men in a battalion of heavy artillery, and 150 in an infantry regiment. To effect these enlistments they circulate all sorts of lies among the prisoners. The chief lies are to the effect that Gen. Lee has resigned — that North Carolina has withdrawn from the Confederacy and sent commissioners from the State on to Washington to make terms for re-entering the Union, and that Virginia is only waiting for Lee's army to be driven from her borders,Lee's army to be driven from her borders, to resume her connection with the Yankee nation. They tell the men if they will enlist they will be sent out West to fight the Indians, and will never be sent South where there would be any danger of their capture. When a prisoner agrees to enlist his name is put down in a book, and he is marched from the main body of the prisoners to another part of the island to join his companions in shame, who live in tents there.

Pillow is doing the State most efficient service, and the time will come when his services therein will be deemed by the whole country the salvation of the Confederate cause. Major General Lee, recently elevated to the dignity of the yellow sash, will soon enter upon his duties as chief cavalry commander of this whole department. He is the same Lee whose name frequently and honorably appears in the accounts of the siege of Vicksburg. I saw some gentlemen from the Northern counties of this State to day. They report confidence and cheerfulness returning to their old channels among the people; and that the granaries are teeming with the garnered harvest, the most abundant
ance, rapidity, determination to secure success, he has had few equals either in America or Europe. His was the "Action, action, action," of Demosthenes, which is not less the source of success in war than in oratory. These observations are by no means designed to underrate the value of scientific military educations. Jackson was a West Pointer, and one of the most industrious students of that celebrated institution. Now and then a great natural military man may be found, born a soldier, as some men are born mechanics, but such cases are exceptional. We should in general as soon think of calling upon a carpenter to make us a pair of boots as a man of any other training than that of arms to head an army.--Perhaps one of the most splendid illustrations on record of the combination of great genius and energy was the famous movement of Gen. Lee, by which he compelled McClellan to raise the siege of Richmond. Certainly the wars of this continent have never produced its parallel.
