There are Federal officers who do not hesitate to say that the General is making his combinations accordingly, and that he is preparing several masked batteries for the benefit of the Confederates. It will at least strike you that there is nothing in the suggestion inconsistent with the movements of General Banks, who is now east of Point of Rocks, or in a position from ten to twelve miles retrograde from that which he lately occupied.--This brings him within a day's march of McCall, who is in command of McClellan's advance in that direction. No one here believes for a moment that it is any part of the Confederate plan to attack the entrenchments and defences opposite Washington — least of all to attack the Capital directly. They appreciate too intelligently the force of Northern sentiment on this point.--Such a demonstration, if ever contemplated, has doubtless been long since abandoned.

s staff, hastened in the direction of the affair. He was enthusiastically cheered by the troops wherever he was seen by them, both going and returning.--When he reached the command of Col. Stevens, that had been engaged, the men, one and all, raised a tremendous shout of welcome. One poor fellow, in the very agonies of death from his wounds, as the General took his hand, suddenly sprang up and thanked him for his kind attention. He probably did not survive for half an hour afterwards.--Gen. McCall's brigade gave him a most remarkable welcome, cheering him as he passed as commander was hardly ever before cheered. We learn from headquarters that our loss was one actually killed on the field, one died in a short time, five desperately and five slightly wounded. All our wounded and killed were brought away with the single exception of one man, too badly wounded to be moved, who was left at a farm-house to be cared for.

The President has appointed Col. E. D. Baker, of Oregon, now Colonel of the New York First California Regiment, and acting Brig. General, to be Major General of Volunteers. This forenoon, Major Gen. McClellan and staff, escorted by a squadron of cavalry, proceeded to the position of Major General McCall's division, where a grand review of ten or twelve thousand troops took place.

Much to the regret of the officers of the 1st Brigade, reports are current that Col. Biddle, Brigade Commander, with his Buckeye Regiment, are to be transferred to Gen. McCall's division, near Washington. In view of the probable scarcity and high prices of fuel the coming winter, it is suggested that the Maryland farmers along the line of the Potomac would advance their own interests by felling the useless trees of their forests on the first fall of the leaves, instead of delaying that work until winter. Winter blankets and tents are being issued to several of the regiments, in view of the approaching cold weather. Saturday night was very cold, and t

McCall sent out a party Sunday morning, and arrested Mrs. Jackson, mother of Elisworth's murderer, and her half-brother, named Moore. Her house was situated within the rebel lines, and was used as a headquarters for their scouts. It is believed that much information has been furnished them from this source. She said there had been some thirty there, and she gave them a cup of tea. She or Moore would not give any satisfaction to the men sent by Gen. McCall, and were accordingly handed over to the provost guard here.--Wash. Cor. Phil. Inq. Affairs in New York.

Information received to- night states that they had reached Drainsville, about ten miles from Prosexpedition was accompanied by Gen'ls McClellan, Porter, Smith and Hancock.

Smith's Division, with a small escort, advanced on the road leading from Lewinsville, to within a short distance of Vienna, on a foraging expedition. The result was the bringing off of about 60 loads of hay and 250 bushels of oats. Everything in that direction was reported quiet. The party on the reconnoissance of General McCall, which advanced to Drainesville on Saturday, returned this morning, the object of the expedition having been accomplished, and valuable information obtained. The main body remained at Drainesville on Tuesday. The engineers, under an escort, proceeded to the right as far as the Potomac, three miles distant; and on the left as far as the Loudoun and Hampshire Railroad. Rebel pickets were encountered by the escort of the engineers, and sharp firing ensued. The result was, five r

The outer pickets of Gen. McCall's division were driven in last night, indicating an advance of the rebel army. A large party was sent out to meet them, when they retreated. Their object evidently was to capture the men on the outposts. Signal lights were plainly visible last night in the direction of Leesburg, and also towards Centreville. News of the day. An important proclamation, relating to the coming election in Maryland, has been issued by Gen. Dix. It having been understood that persons formerly

McCall's movement to Drainsville to reconnoiter and draw out the intentions of the enemy at Leesburg, I went to Edwards's Ferry at one o'clock P. M., with Gen. Gorman' sent to Conrad's Ferry. A section of Bunting's New York battery and Rickett's battery were already on duty respectively at Edward's and Conrad's Ferries. Gen. McCall's movement had evidently attracted the attention of the enemy, a regiment of infantry having appeared from the direction of Leesburg, and taken shelter behind a to march. I directed him to Harrison's Island to assume command, and in a full conversation explained to him the position as it then stood. I told him that General McCall had advanced his troops to Drainsville, and had advanced his troops to Drainsville, and that I was extremely desirous of ascertaining the exact position and f
