"Reliable." --The reliable man who usually furnishes the texts for all the war talk indulged in, in this locality arrived on Saturday last and gave an animated account of a skirmish said to have occurred on the day in question between the Abolition and Confederate forces at the head of Mechanicsville turnpike, on the other side of Chickahominy river, part of the proceeds of which were an indefinite number of wounded and dead Confederates, half a dozen cart loads of dead Yankees and thirty live ones. On inquiring at the C. S. Military Prison yesterday morning, we learned that four prisoners of war had been received there on Saturday from Giles county, but none from the head of the turnpike. There was some cannonading there at an early hour on Saturday morning, but we believe the result has not yet transpired.
