Movements of General Lee.

--The reader will find a telegraphic message about the movements of the forces under Gen. Lee, which, although not explicit, is very interesting. We gather from it certainly that our men have surrounded the Federal force on Cheat Mountain, on the Parkersburg turnpike, and that another part of our force is advancing towards Elk River. If this is so, it is no doubt the object of Gen. Lee to make his way to the rear of Rosencranz; and if he succeeds in this, he will not only relieve Gen. Floyd, but likely hem in Rosencranz. There must be sharp fighting, we imagine, in this movement. The news from the West and Northwest, therefore, is just now of the deepest interest.
