--There has been no change in the position of the Federal troops on the Virginia side since yesterday. The rebel pickets still occupy the lower end of Falls Church, on the line of the railroad. The troops of neither army are in possession of Lewinsville. Our pickets extend only to Langley from the Chain Bridge. d 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.

Tyler's encampment before the battle of Manassa, has been re-occupied, and a regiment or more have pitched their tents there within a few days. It is about twelve hundred yards beyond the village of Falls Church, and is reached by a gradual ascent. Upon the summit is Taylor's tavern, a quaint-looking, old fashioned house, and in front an oak grove with little undergrowth of bushes, forming an admirable place for a camping ground.--Here and at Langley
