From Northern Virginia. From the two opposing armies of Gens Lee and Meade we have very little to report this morning. Beyond some slight skirmishing there has been no important demonstrations since the fight of Saturday last near Kelly's Ford. That a general engagement will take place in a few days there is but little doubt; but at what point it is impossible to state. Reports from passengers who arrived in this city yesterday and last night by the Fredericksburg and Central trains, state that the larger portion of the Yankee army had arrived at a place called Jomini, about eighteen miles from Fredericksburg, and that Meade is rapidly advancing up the Rappahannock towards Fredericksburg, where the decisive contest will probably take place. On Sunday last the Crenshaw battery from this city, were brought into a short engagement with a portion of the Yankee artillery, during which William R. Allegre, son of one of the proprietors of the Enquirer, was severely wounded in the
Later from Europe. The steamship Adriatic, with dates from Liverpool to the 27th ult.--three days later — has arrived at St. John's: Great-Britain. Gen. Lee's advance on Gen. Meade attracted much attention. The Daily News says that, while the Confederates are unable to dislodge Rosecrans, Lee's movements are so inconsistent with ordinary principles as to baffle all attempts at explanation. Gen Meade had nothing to gain by delivering battle in the centre of Virginia, and wiselLee's movements are so inconsistent with ordinary principles as to baffle all attempts at explanation. Gen Meade had nothing to gain by delivering battle in the centre of Virginia, and wisely declined to challenge his opponent until he reached his selected field, when, no doubt, he will be ready to receive him. The Times says the last blow has yet to be struck, and the Federals will have extraordinary good for tune if a third battle on the scene of two defeats reverses the associations connected with the ill ened field of Bull Run. The Times thinks Rosecrans will have to capitulate or retreat, and the former appears the most probable. Henry Ward Beecher was entertai
and our lines of communication are perfect. Memphis, Tenn., Nov. 7, 1863. --Gen. Hatch has driven Gen. Chalmers across the Tallahatchie river, punishing the latter's forces severely. Gen Richardson, with a force of rebels reported at from 1,500 to 2,000, this morning struck the Memphis and Charleston Railroad, six miles east of Salisbury, burning the trestlework, tearing up the track, and destroying the telegraph. No further particulars have been received of his movements. Gen. Lee's rebel force has gone towards Decatur. The rebels under Gens. Roddy and Forrest are reported to be near luke.

The former borough' in a prize — the blockade runner Margaret and Jessie — which she captured off Wilmington, with a valuable cargo as wines, silks and dry goods, and one hundred men, composing crew and passengers.
ylvania — what the Yankees gained and what they have lost. A correspondent of the New York News, writing from Fredericksburg after the heavy fighting between Gens Lee and Grant, and after the latter had given up dashing his men against the Confederate lines, dissipates all the pretty stories of victory which were in circulatioeview our failures and our successes I will explain an error in my letter of the 13th. It was therein stated that after the terrible conflict of Thursday last, General Lee evacuated his position in front of Spotsylvania and retired to another line beyond that place, and near the Tu River. The statement was based on the reports ofing here from the front, and was generally credited in official circles; but it now turns out that the story was nothing but a fabrication from beginning to end General Lee still holds his lines between Spotsylvania and General Grant's front. He still holds the rifle pits and breastworks that were charged by every corps in Grant's
