Winchester captured. The following dispatch was received yesterday by the President: "June 15th, 1863. "To has Excellency, President Davis:" "God has again crowned the valor of our troops with success. Early's division yesterday stormed the enemy's entrenchments at Winchester, capturing their artillery, &c. "R. E. Lee, General."" In addition to this dispatch from Gen. Lee we have a number of reports, brought down by passengers on the Central train last night. These reports state that our forces captured from five to seven thousand prisoners, fifty pieces of artillery, and a large amount of commissary stores. It is also reported that Gen. Wm.
