Fight in Greenbrier county.

We understand that a dispatch was yesterday received in official quarters that an engagement had taken place on Sunday last at Greenbrier Bridge, a few miles from Lewisburg, between the forces under Gen. Echols and a largely superior force of the enemy, who advanced on the turnpike road imaging from Lewisburg to Charleston, in Kanawha country. Of the particulars of the fight we could learn nothing, except that Gen. Echols was compelled to fall back through Lewisburg, which was afterwards occupied by the enemy. Their force numbered about 4,500.
