[correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.] another Yankee story Proved false. Middlssex County, Va., February 6, 1862. Having seen in your paper of Saturday last an article taken from the Philadelphia Inquirer, headed "Fight at the mouth of the Rappahannock river--Confederate schooner burned," written by an officer on board of one of the steamers blockading the Rappahannock river, and knowing that no such schooner has either been burned or captured, I deem it proper to make known through your paper to the public the facts of the case. The circumstances connected with the fight are simply theses: During the week preceding the engagement the Yankees had landed in Middlesex, and wantonly burned a private dwelling; and as it was supposed that similar depredations would be attempted, Captain Fleet. of the Middlesex artillery, with three guns and a portion of his company, proceeded to a point opposite to which the blockading steamers were lying, and there planted his cannon.
