From Gen. Lee's army.

There is nothing of importance from the Army of Northern Virginia. A cavalry fight is said to have occurred near Charlestown on Thursday last, in which our troops are reported to have captured two hundred prisoners. Our loss is reported at 16 killed, about 40 wounded, and 20 missing. This news reached Lynchburg on Sunday night. Everything was quiet along the lines on Friday last--Colonel Edenborough, who was present at the shelling of Charlestown on Wednesday, who arrived here last evening, states that the enemy only captured one captain and eight of our men wounded. The Northern papers report this officer as Captain Smith, of the ‘"Richmond Artillery."’ It is probably Captain Benj. H. Smith, Jr., of the 3d Company Richmond Howitzers, a section of that company being on picket duty at the time of the Yankee advance.
