From Lynchburg.

Lynchburg, June 13.
--Rumors of the movements of the enemy are plentiful, but nothing definite is known outside of official circles. It is reported that the force that occupied Lexington is moving in the direction of Buford's, on the Virginia and Tennessee railroad, thirty nine miles west of this city. The force in Amherst is reported to be moving towards Buffalo Springs, twenty-six miles from here.

This force is about two thousand strong, under the command of Gen Stahl, and is all cavalry. They subsist off the country, having no supplies with them. They have two pieces of artillery. Only eight of them visited the Orange railroad, burnt the depot at Arrington, tore up two hundred yards of the track, removed several cattle guards, and destroyed the telegraph. The damage can be repaired in three or four hours. The people here are calm and resolute, and will defend the city at all hazards.
