Affairs in Northern Virginia--repulse of the enemy at Castleman's Ferry. We have received intelligence of an engagement at Castleman's Ferry, on the Shenandoah river, in Clarke county. It seems that the enemy, whose main force is believed to have crossed the Potomac into Loudoun county, attempted to throw a large body of troops across the Shenandoah at the point designated, with the supposed intention of moving upon Winchester. Castleman's Ferry is on the direct read from Leesburg to Winchester, and about seventeen miles from the latter point, and about three miles distant from Salekersville, Loudoun county, which is just at the foot of the Blue Ridge.

An officer of the Lee battery, writing from Winchester under date of November 3, says: "We moved up here yesterday for forage, from Clarke county, where we spent one week. The Yankees are close upon us, having crossed from Loudoun through Snicker's Gap. We have skirmishing daily by A. P. Hill's forces and the enemy. We learn a small force of Yankees have moved up to Martinsburg, and

On the Upper Potomac all was quiet, the only Yankee force known to be on the south side of the river is the garrison at Harper's Ferry. Our cavalry continue to picket at Charlestown and the neighborhood of Shepherdstown. There is a report that a portion of the cavalry of General Stuart attacked a body of the enemy's cavalry in the neighborhood of Warrenton on Wednesday, killing three, wounding some fifteen or sixteen, and taking seven or eight prisoners, several horses, and a considerable number of swords, carbines, and pistols, which the enemy disserted themselves of in their flight. They were retreating when the assault upon them was made, and such was the spirit with which it was made that utter rout was the consequence.
