The War News.

Yesterday opened with a shower of rumors of important Confederate successes in various quarters. It was said by those who professed to have it from unquestionable authority that several towns in different quarters had succumbed to our forces, and that, as a consequence, large quantities of stores and many prisoners had fallen into our hands.

It was also stated that a portion of our forces had engaged the enemy on the Rapidan, but this, like the rumors mentioned above, proved to be without foundation. At a late hour last night the War Department was without important news.
