From Washington.
mysterious Movements of troops — probable
invasion of Virginia.

Alexandria, May 15.--A mysterious movement took place among the troops in Washington this morning. The Rhode Island regiment was early ordered to be in readiness to march at a moment's notice. The caissons of their batteries were quietly gathered. Wheeling and Northwestern Virginia will probably be the next point of Federal occupation.

Washington and Alexandria are quiet.
