From the Rappahannock lines.--the pursuit of the enemy--Pope Abandoning his wounded. An officer from the Rappahannock river gives us some highly important intelligence from our operations in that vicinity. The positions and movements of our army need not be mentioned; but we can state that the enemy is in full retreat and closely pursued by our troops. On Saturday morning heavy and continued cannonading was heard at Orange Court House up to the time that the train left. At Stevensburg ae detect the improbability of this statement. To sum up the information as received by us, we accept the conclusion that the Federal forces have retreated in the direction of Washington and Fredericksburg; that the fight of Saturday at Rappahannock river was an effort to cover that retreat; that they were defeated with the loss of prisoners stated, and that our army, having crossed the river, is pursuing them northward.

Yankees in Gloucester. From gentlemen who arrived in this city yesterday from the lower end of King and Queen county, we learn that a Yankee force of some three or four thou and landed at Gloucester Point on Saturday morning, and took up the line of march in the direction of Fredericksburg. This force consisted of infantry, cavalry, and a battery of artillery. The sudden and unexpected appearance of a Yankee force in that locality, suggests an inquiry as to the whereabouts of McClellan and the remnant of his army who left Westover in the early part of last week. It is pretty certain that his army has never reached Fredericksburg. A gentlemen, who lives on the Rappahannock river, and who left his home on Friday afternoon, assures us that so troops had passed up the river since Burn-side's corps. It is, therefore, not at all improbable that the force landed at Gloucester Point on Saturday is but the advance guard of the army that recently evacuated the banks of James river.
