Philadelphia Nov. 19.
--The Washington correspondent of the asserts that assurance from the most show that Lincoln has informed several gentleman high in authority that the army will not to into win quarters, but than a forward movement has been determined on and will take place at the proper time.

The New York World, in speaking of the naval expedition, says it is mani not the intention of the Lincoln Government to attempt the capture yet of the large Southern sea ports, but thinks that New Orleans, Mobile, and Savannah could be taken without a great expenditure of blood, but the retention of those cities, or any one of them, would be a much more serious matter. A lodgment on an island or series of islands would command important harbors, with a view to future operations. The latter is manifestly the object of the expedition.

One of Cheatham's staff reports an engagement on Monday last beyond Mayfield, between Bowen's, Benham's, and Martin's regiments and 2,000 Federals. The latter were routed and pursued to Paducah. No particulars given.

The Confederates are in position beyond Paducah.
