From the Wise Legion. Reliable accounts have reached us of the advance of the Federal forces, in strong numbers, upon Charleston, Kanawha county--Gen. Wise, having only a small force at his command, has fallen back to Gauley Bridge, in Fayette county. It is to be hoped that reinforcements will be sent to him without unnecessary delay.
Western Virginia. We learn from Dr. Clarke, who has just reached the city from our forces now in Raleigh county, that Gen. Floyd, with a strong force, had crossed New River at Miller's Ferry, had passed down beyond the mouth of the Gauley, and was directing his march towards Charleston, in Kanawha county. His command will probably cross Kanawha river at Malden, twelve miles above Charleston.--Generals Lee and Loring were still on Sewell mountain, doubtless awaiting to hear of the success of Gen. Floyd's expedition before advancing upon the enemy on the Gauley. We learn that the militia of the country had, by cutting down trees, blocked up the roads leading from the enemy's position in direction of Summersville for a considerable distance. If this is true, and the work has been done effectually, the enemy will be between Gen. Lee on the east and Gen. Floyd on the west, the latter of whom will be able with his artillery to cut off his supplies by stopping the running of ste
From the army of the Kanawha our troops in possession of Charleston, Kanawha county--Rosencranz's supplies cut off, &c. Lynchburg, Nov. 4. --The Lynchburg Republican has been favored with a private letter, written by the wife of one of our officers, stating that our troops occupy Charleston, Kanawha county, to the number of thirteen hundred. The force is composed of Colonel Jenkins's cavalry and Col. Philips's Georgia Legion. General Floyd was in supporting distance, and wase letter, written by the wife of one of our officers, stating that our troops occupy Charleston, Kanawha county, to the number of thirteen hundred. The force is composed of Colonel Jenkins's cavalry and Col. Philips's Georgia Legion. General Floyd was in supporting distance, and was expected in Charleston in a few days. The effect of this occupation is to cut off supplies from Rosencranz and Cox, thus causing them to surrender or retreat precipitately from the Kanawha Valley via Summerville.

the Kanawha is devolved upon General Floyd. If General Jackson could succeed with a strong column in making his way westward from Winchester to Grafton and Wheeling so as to occupy some of the force of Rosencranz in that direction, and divert the reinforcements sent to him from Ohio from the Kanawha Valley, so as to relieve General Floyd of the great preponderance of force he is now facing, we should not yet despair of recovering Western Virginia before the winter. We learn by a gentleman directly from Charleston, Kanawha county, that the enemy becoming alarmed for the safety of the valley by the appearance of Gen. Floyd upon the Southern bank of the river, below Rosencranz, are pouring in large reinforcements for the latter General, five steamboats loaded down with troops having passed up the Kanawha river to Charleston in one day. This will give Rosencranz a great preponderance of numbers over Floyd, and again revert us to defensive operations in that difficult field of service.
Kanawha county. A letter from Charleston, Kanawha county, states that James H. Brown was elected Judge of the Kanawha Circuit, on the 38th December, under the Wheeling Government. And the writer adds: "Can you imagine a greater fall from our late worthy incumbent, Judge McComas! Who could have supposed that his mantle would have thus fallen? O! Tempora. O! Mores." Mr. Brown was elected to the House of Delegates, last May, from Kanawha county, but has since turned traitor, and been a prominent member of the Wheeling Convention.
From Gen. Loring's command — capture of Charleston. A dispatch received at the War Department yesterday afternoon, from Gen. Loring in person, states that at 3 o'clock on Saturday last his forces, after having routed the enemy, entered the town or Charleston, Kanawha county. The enemy evaluated the town during the morning, burning all then stores and a large portion of the town. They retreated hastily in the direction of the Ohio river, but hopes were entertained that their retreat would be intercepted, as Gen. Jenkins was either between them and the Ohio, or, with a considerable force, threatening their flank. The capture of Charleston places the salt works of Kanawha in our possession. The following is an exact copy of the dispatch. above alluded to: Charleston, Kanawha Co., Va., September 13th, 1862. Hon. G. W. Randolph: After incessant skirmishing from Ganley down, we took this place at 3 o'clock P. M. The enemy six regiments strong, made stout resis
Army news. From the army of Northern Virginia we have but little news. The enemy's cavalry, about 1,000 strong were yesterday in the neighborhood of Manassas, scouring the country around. No movement of import was on the capts in Gen. Lee's command on Monday last. The army of Western Virginia, now under the command of Brigadier-General Buhels, again holds possession of Charleston, Kanawha county. On the 10th our were far advanced in Lawis and the surrounding counties. The Yankees are in force at Bull Town.

General Kelley telegraphs this afternoon to Governor Boreman that the rebels have been driven back from the line of the railroad at all points, and are now in full retreat, vigorously pursued by our troops. The damage to the North Branch and Patterson Creek bridges is but trifling, and the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad will be in working order in two days. Governor Boreman has also received a dispatch from Gallipolis, stating that the steamer Levi, which left that place for Charleston, West Virginia, last night, was captured and burned at Red House, on the Kanawha river. Brigadier General Scammon and one of his staff were taken prisoners. The rest of the passengers and the crew were released. The rebels also burned the telegraph office at Red House. The telegraph is now working over the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. Capture of the Yankee force and destructionof their gunboat — their story.
