The Federal and rebel forces at Cheat Mountain.

--Owing to the recent skirmishing at Cheat Mountain, it will not be uninteresting for our readers to know the number of our forces and their locality on that mountain. At Beverly are the First Virginia Regiment and Sixth Ohio; at Huttonsville, the next station south of east from Beverly, are the 13th and 17th Indiana Regiments; at Elkwater, on the road leading toward Huntersville, are fortified the 3d Ohio and 15th Indiana; and eighteen miles from Elkwater are 6,000 rebel troops, under Col. Loring. On the other road from Huttonsville, leading toward Monterey and Staunton over Cheat Mountain, and on its top are fortified the 14th Indiana, 24th and 25th Ohio, and Loomis's Battery of Flying Artillery. Fifteen miles from this fortification, is General Lee with 9,000 men. Two regiments from this State and three from Indiana are to be moved to-day and to-morrow to General Reynolds's assistance. One of the Indiana regiments passes through here this morning.--Cincinnati Enquirer.
