From Northern Virginia. --We received yesterday no late or important news from the line of the Rapidan. Passengers by the Central train were unable to furnish even a rumor from the army of Gen. Lee, from which it is reasonable to infer that no military movements looking to active operations are in progress. From the Valley we learn that Major Gilmore's battalion made a raid in Jefferson and Clarke counties in the early part of last week. The Yankees at Charlestown, becoming alarmed, left the place during Tuesday night, and our men entered the same night, and at last accounts were still there. Charlestown is eight miles from Harper's Ferry. The last accounts we had from the latter point represented the Federal force there to be about 6,000. They have been sent off, however, to strengthen Rosecrans or Meade. When at Charlestown Major Gilmore is but five miles from the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. We hope to hear that he has tapped that road.
From the Southwest. Atlanta, Oct. 3--10-12 A. M. --The trains report all quiet before Chattanooga. A species to the Intelligencer, dated the 30th, says: "In the exchange of wounded prisoners to-day we had twenty-five hundred Yankees, and they had forty-one Confederates." Gen. Dan. Adams has determined to remain in the Yankee lines until his condition is so improved as to justify his safe removal. Gov. Brown reached camp to-day, and was enthusiastically cheered by the troops. The enemy still held Knoxville.
200 dollars reward. --Ran away on Wednesday, Sept. 30th, my negro woman Charlotte. She is about 18 years old, 5 feet 2 or 3 inches high. The most notable mark remembered is that both of her middle fingers are enlarged by having a whitloe of each. Geo. E. Smith. Of the firm of Smith, Lipscomb & Co., Franklin street. oc 2--6t*
Major-Gen. Earnes, the new Military Governor of Norfolk, arrived in that city on Thursday, and entered upon the duties of his office. The Mobile Tribune announces the death of Col. W. L. Powell, the commander of Fort Morgan.
Omens in the sky. --A friend suggests that the late phenomenon witnessed in the atmosphere in Western Virginia of armies marching in the sky may be of happy augury. The armies are described as marching on the double quick to the North, and as being without arms. Let us hope that it prognosticates the speedy return of the vandals, deprived of their means of destruction, to their own homes.
