the rebel lines, McCook's brigade, of which the One Hundred and Twenty-fifth Illinois, Lieutenant-Colonel Langley commanding, formed the front, determined to advance their line of works in order to mid feet, it was an extremely hazardous enterprise; but as Yankee ingenuity cannot be balked, Colonel Langley devised a plan, the like of which has not been seen since the commencement of the war. The ver, except the rear guard. On Wednesday morning last, a truce was arranged upon between Colonel Langley of the One Hundred and Twenty-fifth Illinois, of McCook's brigade, and the rebel Colonel Risoldiers who fell at the rebel breastworks should be given over to the rebels. But to this Colonel Langley objected, and proposed that they should be regarded as neutral property, and not touched byhat the rebels were not going to hold their position. The upshot of the matter was just as Colonel Langley expected; the rebels evacuated, and we got all the arms, some two hundred and fifty Enfield

ement. Credence was given to the most improbable rumors, and accurate information was at a decided discount. A report, which upon the face of it seemed to bear some degree of probability, reached the ears of General McCall at Camp Pierpoint (Langley, the right of the Federal line) that a considerable body of Confederate cavalry was between Dranesville and the Potomac, menacing the Federal picket line and greatly harassing Union citizens residing in that locality. In fact, it was known thatauders between Dranesville and the river was not to be neglected. Movements of the troops. The First Brigade, commanded by General Reynolds, was ordered to move to Difficult Run, a small stream that crossed the road between Dranesville and Langley, so as to be in supporting distance should Ord need assistance. A touch of humor attaches to McCall's serious caution to Ord that he should bring his troops back to camp before nightfall without fail. It was evidently considered dangerous at t

The Washington Star publishes a letter dated Lewinsville, Fairfax county, Aug. 23, from which we make an extract: To-day a detachment of U. S. troops (cavalry and infantry) passed up through this section, going upon the Leesburg turnpike as far as Joshua Gibson's, about ten miles from Georgetown, where they came in sight of the Confederate camp. They also arrested and took to the city a man named McNerhany, of Langley, and Basil Gantt, who lived about a mile and a half above the Chain Bridge. Seizures are being almost dally made by the Confederates, who pick up young and old and send them off to Manassas. Last Friday night Mr. William Woodworth, of this place, who had been staying at Washington, came up to see if his family were well, and was taken the next morning and carried off. The crops are entirely destroyed, and their horses fed upon the grain and corn without any regard for economy, mo

The troops of neither army are in possession of Lewinsville. Our pickets extend only to Langley from the Chain Bridge. Langley and Lewinsville are three miles apart. A reconnaissance was made to-day by the Mozart regiment to Pohick Church and the vicinity, about 12 miles from Alexandria, to the left of Springfield station. They founLangley and Lewinsville are three miles apart. A reconnaissance was made to-day by the Mozart regiment to Pohick Church and the vicinity, about 12 miles from Alexandria, to the left of Springfield station. They found the rebel encampments entirely deserted, and nothing indicating their presence in that neighborhood. A contraband came into our lines this morning, near Falls Church, and was taken to the headquarters of Gen. McDowell, at Upton's hill. He stated that he was the servant of the Surgeon of the 15th Georgia regiment, which was encamped, together with two other regiments, four miles from Falls Church, on the road leading to Fairfax Court-House. He also said there are no rebel troops there e
