From Gen. Lee's army.

The latest information we have from the army of Gen. Lee will be found under our telegraphic head. The Central train which arrived at a late hour last night brought down a large number of the wounded in the late battles in Pennsylvania, but they had been so long on the way that they knew nothing of the present operations of the army, and very little of its whereabouts a week ago. The passengers by the train were without even a rumor.
