Gen. Dix's Strategy.

The movement of Gen. Dix by way of Bottom's Bridge was, it is now generally perceived, a feint. The appearance of his advance yesterday near the Hanover Junction developed his plan. We do not know whether or no our leaders foresaw it; but unlearned men predicted it. We shall soon know, however, whether the movement was anticipated and provided for. That we have the troops near this city to defeat the Yankees whenever they meet them we have no manner of doubt. It they are but brought front to front with them that is all they want. It is true that the Yankees never show an over-eagerness to meet our men, but we trust that they may be brought up to the fight. It would be a matter of deep regret if they are allowed to linger about this city destroying property and interrupting communication.
