The Affair in Hardy county.

From a gentleman who recently left the Valley we have some further particulars of the fight at Williamsport. Hardy county, on Saturday last, of which we gave a pretty all account from the New York Herald, intent paper of yesterday. The fight on our side was chiefly with cavalry, and the artillery attached to Gen. Rosser's brigade. Our lines in killed and wielded it is thought will not exceed forty, which, by their own confession, the enemy lost in this way not less than eighty.

The captures amount to 197 prisoners, and wagons, nearly all of them heavily loaded with commissary supplies. With eighty of these wagons the teams were captured, and have been brought safely through to Harrisonburg.
