The fight at Kelley's Ford.

As a result of the fight at Kelley's Ford on Tuesday last twenty Yankee prisoners were brought to this city by the Central train yesterday evening and lodged in the Liby prison. It seems that the enemy were repulsed, five successive times in their efforts to cross the river, and gave up the undertaking. Their loss is estimated from twenty-five to thirty in killed and wounded, besides those captured and brought down last night. Our loss was one horse killed and one soldier slightly wounded. Everything was quiet at the ford yesterday morning.
