Oley Battery.

--In the battle between our forces under Gen. Loring and the enemy, near Fayette Court- House, on the 11th instant, the Oley Battery, of this city, was engaged, and had a number of men killed and wounded. Of the killed we have been furnished the names of Henry Smith, George Leftwich, and Curtis Chamberlayne, of this city. Richard Smart was shot through the breast, and badly wounded, though it is not supposed his wound was mortal. There were three fights between the Yankees and Gen. Loring's men, and the above casualties occurred in the first one. After the battle the enemy retreated precipitately in the direction of Gauley river. In the same engagement private E. C. Finney, from the Eastern Shore of Virginia, was badly wounded.
