From Northern Virginia. Orange C. H, April 27. --Mosby surprised a picket post of forty men at Hunter's Mill, in Fairfax county, on Friday last, capturing six men and eighteen horses. The rest escaped. During the day the enemy pursued Mosby, recapturing four horses, and taking prisoner Lieut. Hunter, commanding company A, and wounding Lieut Nelson, of the same company. A fight between Mosby and the Yankees occurred at Leesburg Monday week, in which the Yankees lost three killed and seven wounded. All the Yankees have left the Valley, the most of them coming to reinforce Meade. Averill has gone to Southwest Virginia on a raid. Meade is receiving reinforcements over the Alexandria railroad.
