From Gen. Lee's command.

--A private letter from a member of Gen. Lee's command dated September 1st,says:

‘ "We had a skirmish with the Yankees on the 29th ultimo Forty of our men pursued 200 Yankees, killing two and wounding four. The enemy ran so fast that our men could not keep up with them. They left guns, knapsacks and everything they had; one was even seen sons culottes. We took one prisoner, a good looking fellow and rather smart. He says the Yankees will not attack us unless they have five to one."
