--Reported by Gen. Lee.--Reliable intelligence was received on yesterday from General Lee's command, which indicates the prosecution of a brilliant campaign in that quarter on the part of our forces. The news is that General Lee, having cut out a new road for a part of the distance, had marched nine thousand men to the left of Stiper's, which is at the western base of Chest Mountain, and into the Staunton and Parkersburg turnpike road between Stiper's and Huttonsville, and then on ward to the latter place, of which he took possession. He succeeded in cutting off, by this movement, the Federal forces, under Gen. Reynolds, from the co-operation of his assistant command, stationed on Cheat Mountain.

A skirmish had occurred between portions of the Federal and Confederate commands, and General Reynolds himself had been captured Passengers by the Central Railroad, on yesterday, corroborate this intelligence, and say that in the skirmish alluded to, the Federal loss was one hundred, and the Confederate loss twenty. It was conjectured that the entire force of the enemy on Cheat Mountain, owing to their hopeless situation, would be compelled soon to surrender.
