Reported Death of Gens. McClellan and Sickles--capture of Winchester.

Information was received here last night that Winchester had been taken, and a large quantity of stores burned, by our cavalry. The Yankee magazine there was blown up by our troops.

From the same intelligence we learn that the Baltimore Sun, received in Staunton, has a long article on the death of Gen. Geo. B. McClellan, who died from wounds received in the battle of Manassas, and the death of Gen. Daniel E. Sickles, who was killed in the same battle.

These reports are given as reports only though they are slightly more authentic than the street rumors we hear.
