From Northern Virginia.

There has been no news of any importance received from the army of Gen. Lee since our last issue. The passengers by the Central train last night state that firing was heard in the direction of Raccoon Ford yesterday morning, but the cause of it was not known.

From Staunton we have a report that some apprehensions are entertained that a portion of Averill's forces were coming into the Valley from Pendleton county, through Dry River Gap, to Harrisonburg. Preparations have been made to give them a warm reception in the event they should venture across the mountains.
