The Washington Star, of Monday afternoon, has the following about the movements of Grant's army, including the destruction of Madison Court- House: The cavalry expedition sent out from Vienna last Thursday, under command of Col Lowell, returned to that place yesterday after having visited Leesburg, Rectortown, and Upperville. Near Upperville a portion of Mosby's guerrilla band was encountered, when a sharp fight ensued, which resulted in the loss to the rebels of two kil
