Capture of Confederates.

--On Tuesday night last a party of sailors from the Yankee steamers Minnesota and from Barney, numbering about 150, landed in the darkness at Cherry Creek, in co. Va. and captured a party of 2 Confederates, who have been stationed about there for some time as scouts. Lt. Rov and seven men were absent, and thus escaped capture. The Yankees, says the Petersburg Express, were piloted by Bill Cross, a Baltimore blockade runner. The night was dark and stormy, and the surprise complete.
