Federal movements.

New York, July 28.
--The Washington correspondent of the Herald says Mr. Secretary Welles, of the Navy Department, has ordered a powerful naval force to guard the crossing of the Potomac below Washington.

The story that Gen. Lee intends to cross the Potomac South of Harper's Ferry, is improbable.

An entire change in the army organization is probable.

About midnight the pickets collided near the Chain Bridge.

Mr. Burch, of the party who went in search of Mr. Cameron's body, has returned; his companions were held as prisoners, and he was sworn to silence.

The Washington correspondent of the New York Tribune says that Col. Langler had been authorized to summons and organize the men of the mountains and the plains, with whom he was very popular while opening the over land mail route.
