The Rappahannock lines. The Central cars came through without interruption yesterday, and we could hear nothing to confirm the report, so industriously circulated on Sunday, that the Yankees were threatening another demonstration upon the road. Passengers bring a report that a skirmish took place on Saturday not far from Gordonsville, and that the enemy hastily retired after a brief show of resistance. The indications are that a general battle will take place in that direction before many days, as it is now well ascertained that reinforcements are being sent to Pope, the Federal commander, and it is believed that the abolition Government is withdrawing troops from McClellan's army for that purpose. We learn from Staunton that twenty-four prisoners were sent to that place on Sunday by General Robertson, and that forty-six more were expected yesterday. These men will probably be transferred to Lynchburg, to remain until the general exchange of prisoners is effected.

McClellan, the "Young Napoleon;" and now it is Halleck, who has hitherto received no special designation, except that conferred upon him by a New York correspondent of the London Times, "Major General of the Liars," and which he soon after illustrated by asserting that Beauregard, who outgeneraled him in such an astonishing way at Corinth, had lost fifteen thousand stand of arms and twenty thousand in killed, wounded, and prisoners ! Coincident with the appointment of a new General-in-Chief is the inauguration of a reign of crucify and barbarism, compared with which all that is gone is mere chil

Federal Accounts from the West. Mobile July 27. --A special dispatch to the Tribune, dated Grenada, July 26, says: The Louisville Journal asserts that if the Federal Government does not take speedy action, 30,000 men cannot hold Kentucky. Brownlow writes to Washington that he fears Kentucky will soon be occupied by the rebels. A Washington dispatch, dated July 20th, to the Chicago Tribune, says that McClellan is greatly dissatisfied at Halleck being put over him. No good feeling exists between him and Pope.
