Night before last Moseby, with a gang of ninety guerrillas, made a descent upon our picket lines outside oi the defenses south or the Potomac, but without effecting any serious damage. Our cavalry was sent in pursuit. An absurd rumor is circulating to-day throughout the city that Moseby was in town yesterday morning. The military authorities have been on a sharp lookout for guerrillas, but without success. It was reported at tho Navy-yard that the rebels a few days since opened with field pieces on gunboats in the mouth of the Rappahannock, and the steamers, after a few shots in return, hauled off into the Potomac. A Republican paper says Mr. Lincoln inherited from James Buchanan "an ex- j haustcd bankrupt treasury." We should like to know what the successor of Mr, j Lincoln will inherit.

People should everywhere save all their old papers and sell them; they arc now worth five or six cents per pound, while old account books or old writing paper of any kind is worth from ten to twelve cents. Bags are also in de mand, and should be carefully preserved fur salo. Bs?L.

Harris, ex-sheriff of Culpepper, and the finer res idence of Mrs. Taylor, near Stevensburg. DEATHS. DIED Near Baresville in this Coun ty of diphtheria on Friday evening.
