Affairs in the Valley — the capture of Yankees in Hardy County.

We mentioned several days ago the fast that a portion of our cavalry had made some important captures in Hardy county. Our forces who made these captures were under the command of Gens. Fitzhugh Lee and Rosser. The capture was effected some ten miles from Moorefield, on the road leading to Patterson's creek. On Sunday last they came up with a train of some forty wagons, which they succeeded in taking, with their teams, guards, &c. On the same night our forces surprised and captured some fifty Yankees who were quartered in a church in Hardy county.

It is said that about 2,000 Yankees were at Front Royal, Warren county, in the early part of last week, moving in the direction of Berryville, Clarke county. This is a movement of the enemy more probably with the design of meeting movements upon the part of our own forces. A portion of our troops in the Valley were recently as low down as Bunker Hill, Berkeley county, where they captured and brought off a few prisoners.
