Advance of Confederate troops in Western Virginia. Clarksburg, Va., Sept. 14. --The Confederates commenced advancing yesterday morning on both turnpikes towards Elk River and Cheat Mountain. They surrounded the fort on the summit, cut the telegraph wires, and continued to advance on Elk River until within two miles, when shells from the Loomis Battery stopped them. Skirmishing was kept up all night. Two of the Confederate officers, spying around the Federal camp, were surprised by the Federal pickets, who shot one, said to be John A. Washington, of Mount Vernon.
