A brilliant small fight.

Manassa Sept. 16.
--On Friday last an engagement took place upon the occasion of an attack upon and the burning of Hall's house, near Arlington. A detachment of the New Orleans Washington Artillery and a portion of Col. Winder's Regiment, made the attack, which was vigorously opposed for a while by the Federals. The impetuosity and daring of the attack, however, on the part of the Confederates, who went into the lines of the Federals to effect their purpose, struck terror to the enemy. After fighting their way to their object and the burning of the house, the Confederates returned to their camps without the loss of a man. The Federals in the engagement lost four killed and a number wounded, and some eight or ten were made prisoners.

The above intelligence comes from quite a reliable source, and may be considered as authentic.
