From Northern Virginia.

From those who arrived in this city last evening by the Fredericksburg train, we are assured that all is quiet along our linen.

From the Valley we have the information that the Federal force in Winchester numbers about 2,500. They are exercising every and of tyranny that lies in their power, and are making the loyal people of that section feel some of the bleating of &the best Government under the son.& On Monday morning last the Federal commandant at Winchester made a demand upon the Mayor of the town for 2,000 pounds of bacon, and every-day bodies of armed men are sent out into the adjacent country for provisions with which to feed that the Yankee hirelings.

About a week ago Capt. Baylor's company of cavalry which had been cut off by the enemy in the Lower Valley, made its way out, but lost seven of its members who were captured near Rippon, in Jefferson county.
