A Confederate victory in Western Virginia--a severe fight — the enemy Rented. The monotony that had prevailed for some says past was broken on Saturday by the receipt of official intelligence that the enemy, stationed on Cheat Mountain, had sallied out and attacked a small force of our troops, and were repulsed with heavy loss. The fight took place on Friday last, the 13th instant, on the Alleghany Mountain, fifteen miles west of Monterey, to which point the force remaining in that vicin assigned to the command of the 12th Georgia regiment, in Loring's division, a portion of which had been lately transferred to another point leaving Col. Johnston the senior officer of the post. This force, at Camp Alleghany, expected orders to move eastward, when the enemy came out from the stronghold on Cheat Mountain and made the attack, anticipating an easy victory, but returned discompared and beaten. We are indebted to gentlemen from Western Virginia for the foregoing particulars.
