From General Lee's army.[correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.] Outpost Army Northern Va., November 2d, 1863. Meade still lingers in Fauquier, while Gen. Lee halts on the Rappahannock, and, Macawher like, is "waiting for something to turn up." Meade has disclosed to the world the startling fact that he can conduct a retreat better than he can an advance. The little fame he won at Gettysburg is like foliage of the forest in autumn, descending rapidly to rise no more. He soon n repairing it for ten days or more, and make but little progress in its reconstruction.
