ined General Cox, and the thus increased Union force is probably up with the enemy, if the latter has not executed another of Wise's favorite and famous "thorough-bred" movements (to the rear.) Yesterday afternoon, between 6 and 7 o'clock, Beauregard threw a considerable force within three-fourths of a mile of General McClellan's pickets in front of the Chain Bridge. The long roll was beaten, and every preparation was made to meet the enemy, not only by our troops in the immediate vicinity, but by all on both sides of the river. Up to noon to-day we have not heard whether the force thus advanced in that particular quarter remained there or retired.--The movement was evidently, however, a part of Beauregard's plan for a general advance to immediate proximity to our lines. The city has been full this forenoon of a story to the effect that this morning, between 1 and 2 A. M., Munson's Hill was taken possession of by a body of our troops, after a severe fight with artillery
nna; a picket guard only being kept there. Immediately around Flint Hill — half way between Falls Church and Fairfax Court-House — there are the remains of four South Carolina regiments--Kershaw's, Cash's, Bacon's and Williams'--reduced to about half their original number by the contingencies of their service, principally through sickness. Each of these regiments was originally 900 strong. The camp measles has raged long and terrifically in these regiments, as throughout the rest of Beauregard's army. As soon as a man is taken down with it now, he is sent off to some hospital in the interior. Recently the South Carolina regiments received from their State a supply of new clothing and shoes, of which they were in great need. At present they have a sufficiency of provisions — fresh beef, bacon and flour. Much uncertainty exists among them with reference to their military movements, it being whispered around that the idea of really striking at Washington has been abandoned by t<
Large business. --General Dix has ordered the vice police of Baltimore to stop the sale of Confederate flags, badges and envelopes, and also the likenesses of President Davis, Generals Beauregard, Lee, Johnston, and all persons citizens of the Confederate States. Persons wearing red and white neck-ties have been compelled to take them off, under the threat that if they refused they would be taken to the station-house. One gentleman had exposed in the show-case of his store a pair of infant's socks, knit of red and white yarn. He was compelled to remove them, the vice policemen asserting that the colors were those of the Confederates. The Exchange says: All day Thursday the police were busily doing this dirty work. Some of them felt that they were engaged in a low business, and in some few instances apologized for their conduct, remarking that want of bread alone compelled them to be the tools of their superiors. The little boys on the street, who have been earning a
A Splendid Locomotive brought from the Alexandria, Loudoun and Hampshire Railroad, and put into fine working order at the Central Railroad shop in this city, made a trial trip to Staunton a few days ago. It performed the trip in fine style. Some wag telegraphed from Gordonsville that "Gen. Beauregard" would reach Staunton with the approaching train. When it reached that beautiful town, an immense crowd was assembled at the depot, prepared to give the hero a hearty welcome. They were surprised when they learned that the new locomotive which had been named in honor of that distinguished soldier, was the subject of the telegraphic dispatch; but received the information in good humor, like sensible men.
