movements of Gen. Floyd--withdrawal of Federal troops from Western Virginia--Yankee reports about the condition of Affairs in Richmond, &c.

Nashville, Dec. 3.
--A gentleman who has just arrived here from the army in Western Virginia says that the campaign in that region is virtually ended for the winter. The nature of the country, the want of forage and subsistence, and the condition of the roads, make any aggressive movement for the present, in his opinion, by either party, impracticable.

Gen. Floyd has fallen back to a point within thirty miles of the Va. and East Tennessee Railroad.

Gen. Loring still holds his position near Cheat Mountain.

It has already been announced that the enemy has withdrawal six regiments from Western Virginia, and sent them to Kentucky.

A special dispatch to the Chicago Tribune, dated at Washington on the 25th of November, says, that according to trustworthy private letters from Europe, the Red Republicans of Austria, Poland, Italy, and France have made most ample preparations to rise in case the interference of England or France in American affairs affords them an opportunity.

The same correspondent says:‘ "Richmond families are packing up for fear of an attack in the rear. The rebel Government, it is also believed, is removing its archives. The best rebel paper money is at a discount of 30 per per cent. Secession has reduced the post-office estimates, for the ensuing year, three millions of dollars below the cost of the year. ’

The prisoners who arrived here last evening on the Platte Valley, were to-day sent to Norfolk, Mo., to be exchanged for Federal prisoners.

The schooner Alick Scott brought down from Goose Island, a man named Jaxon, charged with aiding men to cross from Illinois to Missouri to benefit Secession.

The Florida and Pamlico engaged a Federal vessel off the east end of Horn Island at 9 o'clock this morning. The Federals retired.
