Reported fight in Kentucky. Lynchburg, Jan. 15, --Intelligence has been received here, by the Tennessee train, that a fight had occurred a few miles beyond Prestenburg, between Gen. Humphrey Marshall, with 2,500 men, and the Federals, numbering 3,000. Marshall was retreating when he was attacked, and the enemy came upon him in a narrow gorge. The engagement which resulted is represented to have been one of the most gallant and desperate of the war. Col. Moore's regiment charged upon the enemy, and a hand-to-hand conflict ensued, which lasted half an hour. The Federal fought gallantly, but finally broke and scattered, and ran off in "Bull Run" style. Gen. Marshall's force being exhausted, and so much smaller in numbers than the Federals, he fell back to Prestonburg. The Confederate loss was 25 killed and 15 wounded. The enemy's loss was over 200. The information about this engagement was brought to Abingdon by partisans in the battle.
