From Suffolk.

On Monday lest a heavy skirmish, initiated by the enemy occurred near Suffolk. It seems that the enemy attempted to drive in the pickets on the right of our lines, when a sharp engagement ensued, which soon extended along the entire line.--The enemy were finally driven back, leaving on the field a portion of their dead, some seven or eight of whom were found in one locality. In this skirmish Thomas Danncy, of the Fayette Artillery, from Richmond, was wounded. The same company had three horses killed.
