From Northern Virginia.

We have no further news from the forces under Gen. Lee. There seems now to be a general concurrence in the opinion that the Yankees have crossed the Potomac on both sides of the Blue Ridge in considerable force. A gentleman who left Charlestown on Saturday says a heavy force of the enemy was near that point, having crossed at Harper's Ferry and Shepherdstown. The main body of Meade's army, however, are understood to have crossed at Berlin and Louisburg, and are operating on the eastern side of the mountain, with a view, doubtless, of throwing their columns between our army and Richmond.

The Central train continues to bring down the wounded in the several fights at Gettysburg. Yesterday the remains of the lamented Gen. Pettigrew were brought down, and were conveyed to the Capitol, where they are now being in state. The hearse was followed from the train by the State Guard, the city militia, and a large concourse of citizens.
