From Gordonsville.

We were unable to learn anything of special interest from our lines about Gordonsville yesterday.--Our latest reports, up to half-past 12 o'clock yesterday, represent everything quiet, with no fighting of consequence since the battle of Saturday. It is said, with some grounds of probability that the forces under Pope are concentrating in Madison county, and will perhaps attempt a flank movement on Gen. Jackson, while Burnside, who is being heavily reinforced by McClellan, advances through Culpeper and Orange.

Most of our wounded in the fight of Saturday are now at Charlottesville and Lovingston, Nelson county. Some are also in the hospitals in Lynchburg.

The following are the casualties in the Courtney Artillery (Capt. J. W. Latimer) in the battle of Cedar Run: Wounded--Lieut R. H. Vaughan, slightly in neck; Corporal A. J. Snead, in leg (since amputated); Corporal James Hamilton, in head; Corporal James Brooks, in foot; Private George Powell, in leg. These wounds, which were caused by artillery fire, are generally severe, but not considered dangerous. There were none killed in the company.

An accident happened on the Central Railroad yesterday afternoon, about nine miles from Richmond. A box car, containing some soldiers on their way to Gordonsville, was turned over and dragged some distance along the track. Three or four persons were injured, but fortunately none were killed.
