Retreat of the Yankees from Green Brier.

The latest report from Averill in Greenbrier states that he was retreating and our forces were slowly following. The loss of Gen. Echols in his engagement on Thursday is put down by one writer at 150 and by another at 300, most of them missing, and many having come in since the fight. The engagement was mainly an artillery duel, and there were not many killed or wounded on either side.
