Important from Washington — an early advance Contemplated.
Important information direct from Washington
reached the Government
in this city Saturday night, which will not be permitted to transpire.
It was confidently asserted when the informant left Washington
, last Wednesday, that an attack from the Potomac
would be made within ten days; and appearances seemed to indicate that such was the intention.
All the troops destined for the enterprise were said to be already on this side of the river.
