Facts and rumors from Washington. The New York Express has the following by telegraph from Washington: Washington city is a key position, with Baltimore for one base of operations in this direction, and Carlisle or Harper's Ferry for mother. Military reconnaissances have been made by officers of the seceded States of the heights across the Potomac, which command this city. Those heights will be at once occupied and entrenched by Government troops, if Virginia enters upon hostilities. Another key point is Cairo, in Illinois, where an immense force will be massed to go down the Mississippi. The mouths of that river will be blockaded, and all seceded ports at the South. Across the Potomac into Virginia, the war and secession spirit is by no means uppermost as yet, but Virginians think that she will go out, though the Western part of the State may secede from the slaveholding portion. Col. Huger, stationed at Baltimore, (Fort McHenry,) for the defence of the Harbor

The quota of Massachusetts volunteers has been doubled in view of the probable delays in some of the Border States. Three regiments from that State will come to Washington, and one will be sent to increase the garrison of Fort Monroe, at Norfolk, Va.--Gen. B. F.

It was desirable that the action of our community should be as quietly taken as possible, and therefore no reference was made to the matter in yesterday's or Monday's issue of the town papers, nor did any dispatches go off on the subject — none, at least, to the North.

Gardner, former commander at Charleston, but who has been staying here during the winter on furlough, posted from here to Washington City on yesterday's afternoon train, having indicated a determination to report to the Lincoln Administration all that had been done, and no doubt all that it is proposed to do, so far as he could ascertain it, we feel that there is no longer any reason for further reticence on our part.

Gen. Scott, it is said, and re-said, will resign, if Virginia leaves the Union; but the report is without the least foundation. He is daily at his post, and hard at work.
