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
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
They are doubtless summing to reach Staunton
