The enemy at Occoquan.

The War Department received a dispatch yesterday, stating that the enemy had crossed the Potomac at Occoquan in strong force, for the purpose of capturing one of our batteries — perhaps the one located near Evansport. As they have no acquaintance with the country, it is believed that they will be cut off and forced to surrender.
