The army. The intelligence we have from the army indicates a continuance of that quiet which has prevailed since the return of Gen. Lee to Virginia. From all we can gather, the headquarters of Gen. Meade are at Warrenton, where he will perhaps remain till he deems himself sufficiently strengthened by reinforcements to attempt a move on Richmond. We had a report on Saturday that the enemy had evacuated Stafford county, and fallen back on their main body. The report stated that the evacuation was precipitate, and that they burned their tents, and a lot of commissary stores. On the other hand, passengers who came down yesterday evening state that there was brisk skirmishing in Stafford, a few miles beyond Falmouth, on Saturday afternoon and again yesterday morning.
