A Victory in Tennessee--capture of several hundred prisoners.[special dispatch to the Richmond Dispatch.] Lynchburg, Sept. 10. --On Tuesday morning a fight occurred at Telford's, a station on the East Tennessee and Virginia Railroad, 33 miles from Bristol and 93 from Knoxville. The enemy was driven back six miles to Limestone.--There our forces came up with them, and after a short engagement captured several hundred Yankees and about 100 East Tennessee tories, who had gotten into a block house, from which they were delivering a pretty heavy fire on our troops. Our casualties were slight. The loss of the enemy is not known, as their dead and wounded were carried off to the rear in a train on the railroad. Two hundred and fifty-five of the prisoners arrived here this evening. The rumored capture of Crowley, Montgomery, and Nelson proves unfounded. They all escaped, and have come through into our lines.
