A skirmish at Manassas.

Passengers who came down by the Central train last evening report that a sharp skirmish occurred in the vicinity of Manassas on Monday last, between our own and a body of Yankee cavalry, in which the enemy lost six killed and fourteen prisoners. Our loss in the affair was one killed, five wounded, and two missing. It seems that the Yankees, on a reconnoitering expedition, had advanced from Centreville, and were met near Bull Run, when a fight, lasting some twenty minutes, immediately ensued. Our cavalry then charged, when the enemy fled, closely pursued until within sight of Centreville.
