e spectacle? What will be the history of the next six months?--We will commence with the glorious victory of Bethel, from there we will go to Vienna, and from there to Bull Run, thence to Chickamacomac, and from there to the last place, the name or which I don't remember, and there you will find all these splendid victories that not only will make us renowned at home, but renowned abroad. What did I hear to-day as coming from the Commander-in Chief of the United States forces--from Gen. McClellan? That he dare not fight on the Potomac. So that we shall have no more battles, I trust, this fall. We have now got in the field some five hundred thousand men, who have congregated about Washington and vicinity, and this array has to be supported at an expense of two millions and a half a day, and yet we are to have no battles this fall. Why? Because the Commander-in-Chief said he dare not fight. Now, gentlemen, what is the English of all this? Why, that this country will, in the f
of the delay and mismanagement that boded so much ill, I have heard no two persons agree. How much longer the delay would have been, had not General Wool, in the most energetic manner, fairly kicked it in end, and fairly out of the harbor, it is difficult to say, if with the final sailing, we have seen the last of the blunders and dissensions, all may yet be well with this nevertheless grand pedition. Within the last few weeks, Gen. Wool's forces, though he has twice reinforced Gen.. McClellan, on the Potomac, have been increased, so that we now have a force quite as great as at any period since the war commenced; and yet, to enable him to undertake aggressive operations, he must have more men, and especially more artillery. The drill and discipline of the troops are thorough and rigid, and if it is possible to make good soldiers of the men, the fact is in process of ascertainment. A correspondent of the New York Times writing under date of "Fortress Monroe, Oct. 31, s
k Herald, of the 3d, furnishes us with some additional items of news: Presentation of a sword to Gen. M' Clellan — fears in regard to the Federal fleet, &c. The Washington correspondent of the 2d, to the New York Herald, says: General McClellan received yesterday a splendid sword, presented to him by a committee of the City Council at Philadelphia. Upon accepting the weapon General McClellan said that he received it, not for what he had done, but for what he hoped to do. He addedGeneral McClellan said that he received it, not for what he had done, but for what he hoped to do. He added that all that was necessary was patience and confidence, and that the victory would eventually be ours. The Powhatan arrived at Washington yesterday from Annapolis, passing the rebel batteries on the Potomac without being attacked. Several vessels passed down through the Swash channel yesterday, however, and were fired upon, though without receiving any damage. Several shells were thrown from the rebel batteries to our entrenchments on the Maryland shore, but they did not impede the pro
into his entrenchments or taken a new shute towards our position. The latter seems hardly probable. A strange rumor is in circulation, one of those tales traceable to no particular origin, and yet believed on account of its probability, that McClellan has attempted an advance upon three different occasions, but retired each time because his men did not come up to the mark. Now, the rumor goes, he has given up entirely until the success of the armada shall inspire his men with confidence. Possibly this may be true; out, if so, only by accident. One thing now seems evident — McClellan does not intend to advance until the fleet is heard from, or until the Southern troops, hearing of the invasion of the Cotton States, shall have gone home and left Bull Run at his disposal. Yesterday a scouting party of about sixty Federal cavalry came up near Fairfax, and, Her making a reconnaissance, retired Our lines run about a mile this side the town, and upon a hill commanding a view of a

From Washington. Gen. McClellan's preparations for a Vigorous campaign — a forward movement determined on, &c. Nashville, Nov. 6. --A dispatch published in the New York Times, dated at Washington, Oct. 31st., states that the Federal army on the Potomac will not go into winter quarters within their present lines of entrenchments. No such purpose has been entertained by the Government, and no such suggestion been made by Gen McClellan, who continues actively employed, and his preparations are on a large scale. The World's dispatch states that President Lincoln had assured parties that a forward movement of the army had been determined on. The Tribune's dispatch states that the Navy Department has recently ordered 500 more reified cannon.
General Wool appears to be exceedingly chafed and mortified at the idea of being over by a subordinate, in the appointment of McClellan to the command of the Federal army.
