No enemy in Highland.

--The Lynchburg Republican learns that a party of scouts was sent into Highland county last week and returned to Staunton on Saturday, and reported that no force of the enemy was then in that section, they having all retreated towards Cumberland, in Maryland. At a little place called Harmersburg our scouts came across about two hundred sick and wounded Yankees, whom they made prisoners, together with twenty-three well ones, who had been left to take care of the sick. It is stated further that Milroy, and the great Pathfinder, have left Pendiston county and taken the back track towards Cumberland, not liking the movements of Jackson in the direction of Martinsburg. Old ‘"Stonewall."’ seems to have seriously interfered with the ‘"family arrangements"’ of Lincoln.
