While Thomas was marching against Zollicoffer, Colonel Garfield was driving Humphrey Marshall from the mountainous region along the Virginia border. With Marshall's retreat the last Confederate force was driven from the State, and Garfield with his brigade joined the army in Tennessee.
The Rappahannock lines. The Central cars came through without interruption yesterday, and we could hear nothing to confirm the report, so industriously circulated on Sunday, that the Yankees were threatening another demonstration upon the road. Passengers bring a report that a skirmish took place on Saturday not far from Gordonsville, and that the enemy hastily retired after a brief show of resistance. The indications are that a general battle will take place in that direction before many days, as it is now well ascertained that reinforcements are being sent to Pope, the Federal commander, and it is believed that the abolition Government is withdrawing troops from McClellan's army for that purpose. We learn from Staunton that twenty-four prisoners were sent to that place on Sunday by General Robertson, and that forty-six more were expected yesterday.

Taking a fresh held. Simultaneously with the return of Lincoln from his late visit to McClellan's camp, appears an order making Gen. Halleck Chief in Command of the Armies of the United States. This is the third change which the Yankees have made in their Commander in Chief since the beginning of the war. First, it was Old Scott, "the first Captain of the age;" then came George R. McClellan, the "Young Napoleon;" and now it is Halleck, who has hitherto received no special designation, exGeorge R. McClellan, the "Young Napoleon;" and now it is Halleck, who has hitherto received no special designation, except that conferred upon him by a New York correspondent of the London Times, "Major General of the Liars," and which he soon after illustrated by asserting that Beauregard, who outgeneraled him in such an astonishing way at Corinth, had lost fifteen thousand stand of arms and twenty thousand in killed, wounded, and prisoners !

McClellan had ordered. The Captain then consented to submit, and, manifesting no disposition to resist, was allowed to get intthe Southern shore the captain of the schooner had his suspicious aroused as to the arrest having been made by order of McClellan, and remarked to his captors that the General's headquarters were not on that side of the river.

Federal Accounts from the West. Mobile July 27. --A special dispatch to the Tribune, dated Grenada, July 26, says: The Louisville Journal asserts that if the Federal Government does not take speedy action, 30,000 men cannot hold Kentucky. Brownlow writes to Washington that he fears Kentucky will soon be occupied by the rebels. A Washington dispatch, dated July 20th, to the Chicago Tribune, says that McClellan is greatly dissatisfied at Halleck being put over him. No good feeling exists between him and Pope.
