Reported fighting at Brock's Gap.

Yesterday evening a report was brought down by passengers from Staunton that the enemy have made two attempts to pass through Brock's Gap, which is a passage in the North Mountain, in Rockingham county, about twelve miles north of Harrisonburg. On Monday they made their appearance at the gap, but were easily and soon driven off by a portion of Gen. Imboden's forces. On Tuesday they renewed their attempt to force their way through the mountain pass, and this time in greater force; but they were a second time repulsed, with considerable loss.

This force of Yankees is believed to be under command of Gen. Kelly, and that they have marched down through Hardy county from the neighborhood of New Creek and Cumberland. They are doubtless summing to reach Staunton.
