Some prisoners who were taken in the fight between Morgan's cavalry and Averill say that the latter was defeated with severe loss.--Averill himself received a slight wound in the head. The fight took place about six miles from Wytheville, on the road from Tazewell, on Monday week. The enemy's force was composed of a portion of the main body of the raiders, which was sent off as a diversion, while the larger force went towards the New River bridge.

Cook, and numbered about five thousand men, with twelve pieces of artillery. Incidents of last week's fighting.
