The lines below Richmond.

Lieutenant-Colonel L. S. McGruder, commanding the 10th regiment of Virginia Cavalry, now on picket near White Oak Swamp, having learned on Sunday that the enemy was occupying Forge's Bridge, sent towards that point a small scouting party, under command of Lieut. Tichenor, of Richmond. The Lieutenant scouted as far as the bridge, bringing back with him two prisoners. The Yankees had left the bridge on Friday last. The pickets also captured one prisoner the same day. They were all brought to Richmond on yesterday, and handed over to Gen. Winder.
