From the army of the Kanawha

our troops in possession of Charleston, Kanawha county--Rosencranz's supplies cut off, &c.


Lynchburg, Nov. 4.
--The Lynchburg Republican has been favored with a private letter, written by the wife of one of our officers, stating that our troops occupy Charleston, Kanawha county, to the number of thirteen hundred. The force is composed of Colonel Jenkins's cavalry and Col. Philips's Georgia Legion. General Floyd was in supporting distance, and was expected in Charleston in a few days. The effect of this occupation is to cut off supplies from Rosencranz and Cox, thus causing them to surrender or retreat precipitately from the Kanawha Valley via Summerville.
