Another raid by Capt. Mosby.

Capt. Mosby, of Gen. Stuart's cavalry, made another successful dash into the enemy's lines, on Tuesday last, at Bristol Station, on the Orange and Alexandra railroad. The Yankees had a picket force at that point, consisting of a major, a captain two lieutenants, and twenty one privates, all of whom together with their horses and other equipments, full into the hands of the gallant Mosby without a struggle. The main body of the enemy was some five miles distant. The privates captured were paroled, the horses sent to camp, and the officers to the "Libby" prison in this city, where they arrived on Saturday evening.
