ence about two miles from Lewinsville, in the direction of Falls Church. Our pickets had been driven in from that point on the night before, and such demonstrations had been discovered (in the way of increased picket guards, &c.,) in that vicinity, in the course of the forenoon, as caused dispatches to be sent here that induced Gen. McClellan to hasten over there some what earlier in the day than usual. These demonstrations were the discovery by scouts from the respective commands of Gen. Smith and Gen. Fitz. John Porter, of signs of three or four strong bodies of the enemy, stretching along a line mostly concealed by woods, only four miles distant from our advanced entrenchments, from Lewinsville on the right, to nearly opposite Munson's hill on the left. The body seen about Minor's and Prospect hills, were a portion of this force thrown further forward than the rest. A portion of this force was cavalry, and another portion artillery, consisting of a battery of six heavy p
Police Transactions. --Saturday night and yesterday proved a busy time for the officers, and developed a somewhat unhealthy condition of the moral atmosphere of Richmond. The watch house register shows the following arrests: Julia Crugan, for stealing articles of wearing apparel, valued at $25, from Joanna Sexton Richard R. Wren for drunkenness and disorderly conduct. Henry, slave of Warner Taliaferro, for fighting a rock battle. Francis M. Smith, a deserter and suspicious character. Robert Hughes, for disorderly conduct, and Solomon B. Terrell, for a similar offence. Richard, slave of Lieut. Peal, for having a pistol in his possession. --Daniel Keys, for theatening to whip Mary Sullivan. Patrick Mullin, for getting drunk, throwing rocks at a house, and engaging in a general fight. William, a runaway slave of Wm. C. Winston, closes the list. These parties will be called before the Mayor this morning.

When we remember that our army is commanded by Johnston, the greatest General of the age, and by Beauregard, the most skillful engineer, and by Smith, a man of great ability and thorough training, we can well afford to accept expediency as a reason for any movement that may seem singular and uncalled for, by those who know nothing of the designs of the enemy. In saying this, I do not wish to ommanding Generals. If the people have confidence in their Generals, they will be perfectly willing to submit to anything that the good of the country requires — and who is there that does not have confidence in such men as Johnston, Beauregard, Smith, Longstreet, Van Dorn, Stuart, and their confreres? Some time ago, while speaking of the occupation of Munson's hill, I remarked that it, together with the neighboring eminences, could be made, by the erection of field fortifications, a good

There has nothing been heard of Gen. Roussean this side of Nolin, where an advance arrived a week ago. The Federals are making no advance movements. The Louisville Journal, of yesterday, says four car-loads of arms, destined for the Kentucky armies, arrived at Jeffersonville on the 18th inst. Gen. Smith, who is commanding at Pajucah, issued a proclamation on the 10th inst., forbidding the outposts to pass out persons without written permission from headquarters, and those permissions are only given to persons of approved loyalty; nor will goods or stores of any description be permitted to pass without the same permission.
