Wise arrived from the army of the Kanawha on Saturday evening, and brought highly interesting intelSewell to 4,000 men. Our loss in the three day's skirmishing was two killed and three wounded, Gen. Wise states that the shot, shell and rifle balls which his troops poured in upon the position occup that Rosencranz had gone back to Cheat Mountain; but whether Rosencranz or Cox be in command, Gen. Wise is sanguine that Gen. Lee will whip the enemy and drive him back. The position at Big Sewell is a very strong one, and seems to have been well chosen by Gen. Wise as a stand point. The most intense anxiety prevails to hear additional news from the West, but the bridges on the two railroads.st be occasioned in the transmission of dispatches.--Gen.

We copy the following from the Lynchburg Republican of yesterday: From a passenger from Charlottesville, on Saturday, we learn that reports had reached that place, that the enemy had been repulsed in their attack upon Gen. Wise's column, of which Gen. Lee had taken command in person, on the Big Sewell on Tuesday, and had renewed the attack on Wednesday with the same result. Again on Thursday morning early the fight recommenced, and was raging with fierceness when the person who brought the report left the neighborhood of the battle ground. It was confidently believed that General Lee would succeed in eventually defeating the enemy, as reinforcements had reached him, and others were on their way to join him, who would probably get up in time to take part in the battle.

The shipping, which covered the attack of the boats, consisted of fifteen or twenty vessels, among which were seventy-fours, frigates, and transports. The action was first opened by the enemy's land force, who were protected by a dense growth of trees and underwood. They commenced throwing Congreve rockets from behind a house belonging to Capt. G. Wise. Capt. Rourke, of the Virginia forces, who was nearest to that point, at once opened upon them a brisk fire of grape and canister, and although the dense growth prevented a good view of the enemy, they were completely routed with the loss of many killed and wounded. At the same time with the attack from the mainland, the barges, filled with soldiers and marines, supposed to be from twelve to fifteen hundred, approached the island in column order, led on by Admiral Wanan's boat, with twenty f
