From Weldon.

The report obtained currency during the day yesterday that the President had received a dispatch from the commandant of our forces in the vicinity of Weldon, conveying the news that a severe fight had taken place, and that the enemy had been completely routed. Upon inquiry we learned that the report was without foundation, and the passengers by the Petersburg train, who passed Weldon yesterday morning, state that nothing with reference to an engagement had been received there at that time.
