From Washington.

Gen. McClellan's preparations for a Vigorous campaign — a forward movement determined on, &c.

Nashville, Nov. 6.
--A dispatch published in the New York Times, dated at Washington, Oct. 31st., states that the Federal army on the Potomac will not go into winter quarters within their present lines of entrenchments. No such purpose has been entertained by the Government, and no such suggestion been made by Gen McClellan, who continues actively employed, and his preparations are on a large scale.

The World's dispatch states that President Lincoln had assured parties that a forward movement of the army had been determined on.

The Tribune's dispatch states that the Navy Department has recently ordered 500 more reified cannon.
