From Banks’ Column

STRASBURG, March 31. – About 2,000 rebel soldiers made their appearance two miles beyond our pickets to-day.  Our nearest regiment drew up in line of battle awaiting their attack upon us yesterday.  They threw several shell into the camp of the Massachusetts 22d regiment. – The rebels were subsequently driven away by the appearance of our advance.
