From Gen Lee's army.

Information was received in this city through passengers who came down by the Central train to the effect that there was heavy skirmishing going on Sunday evening between a portion of our forces and those of the enemy on the lines of the Rapidan.

We further learn from a gentleman who left Gordonsville yesterday that it was currently reported at that place that the enemy crossed the river at Ely's ford on Saturday night in considerable force, and also that another column were crossing Sunday night at Germanna. The rumor of the crossing on Saturday night had reached the neighborhood of Fredericksburg, as we learn from a gentleman who came from that vicinity yesterday.

These reports, coming from different quarters, seem confirmatory, though no news of the kind had been officially received at the War Department last night.
