Affairs on the Rapidan. We understand that twice during the past week the cavalry of the enemy have dashed across Robinson's river, the north fork of the Rapidan, and driven in our pickets. On the first occasion no loss resulted, but the last dash they made they captured some eight or ten members of the 6th Virginia cavalry, which was on picket at the time.--They are also said to have killed a man belonging to the regiment named Price, from Pittsylvania county. During this last raid they paid a visit to Madison C, H., but did little or no damage, except to carry off the mail matter they found in the Post Office. The enemy is represented to have been quite active during the past week in scouting and changing camps, principally with a view, it would seem, to get supplies of wood.

We have received from the signal corps officer, a copy of the New York Herald, of Monday last, the 1st inst. The following is a summary of the news: Lincoln's draft Consolidated --500,000 men called for — the Real Call being for 200,000.

Ordered, that a draft for 500,000 men to serve for three years or during the war be made on the 10th day of March next, for the military service of the United States, crediting and deducting therefrom so many as may have been enlisted or drafted into the service prior to the 1st day of March and not heretofore credited.

harges were repulsed. At last, as night closed, the superior numbers of the rebels, and not their good fighting qualities, gained them a success. At one time the train was in a fair way of being entirely saved; but owing to the excitable skedaddling propensities of some few of the teamsters, and the effect of their conduct on others, a kind of panic was the result. A portion of the train was saved notwithstanding the above mentioned misfortunes. On hearing of the engagement, Colonel Mulligan at once sent reinforcements to Colonel Snyder. A later dispatch than the above says that the command of Col. Thoburn, which comprised the garrison at Petersburg, had succeeded in making their escape by a mountain road, passing between two of our columns, with all their trains, guns, &c. The dispatch says that the next morning Gen. Early shelled the evacuated fortifications. A dispatch from Washington states that dispatches had been received at the Yankee War Department, from G
