Skirmish at Rich Spring.

A passenger who left Monterey Thursday morning, and who arrived yesterday afternoon per Central cars, reports that General Rosencranz, in command of the Northern forces in Western Virginia, and General Lee, in command of our army operating in that part of the State, met at Rich Spring, an important point, and said to be the key to the Valley.--Beth Generals were pushing with all speed, each endeavoring to occupy it in advance of the other.

General Lee, however, was more active than the General with the Dutch name, and arrived with two regiments several hours in advance of his competitor, who had four regiments.

Our informant states a skirmish took place, resulting in a repulse of the Northern troops, with a loss of about forty men killed and wounded.
