about four miles, to Falling Waters. The Church at Falling Waters has been occupied as a hospital. On Monday about two hundred Virginia troops reached Little Georgetown, seven miles above Williamsport, and have encamped there, using the church as a barrack. Chambersburg, May 30.--The Virginia troops opposite Williamsport have retired in the direction of Martinsburg. Four Pennsylvania Regiments arrived this morning, also Major Kelm. Four other Regiments are expected to-day. Wheeling, May 30.--The Ohio and Virginia Federal troops have occupied Grafton. The Secession troops retreated without firing a shot.

Ships are continually presenting themselves at Acquia Creek. The whole line of the Potomac is held under strict and jealous espionage.

Surely is Virginia very highly distinguished by the enemy's attentions. But this fact is to be recollected, that nowhere, unless it may be in the disaffected Northwest, has the enemy dared to penetrate any distance into the interi

By well-confirmed reports from Pennsylvania, we learn that in addition to Frederick, Williamsport and Hagerstown, Hancock and Cumberland, Md., were both about to be occupied by Federal troops. It would appear evident that the Federal Government is determined, as part of its military plans, to take entire possession of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, as Wheeling, Parkersburg, Grafton, and their intermediate points are already possessed by troops. This movement, with the occupation of the points just cited, will leave only the small territory between Martinsburg and the Point of Rocks (between 30 or 40 miles,) in possession of the Confederate troops. It is supposed that the Federal armies are accompanied by corps of sappers and miners, with bodies of laborers to repair destroyed bridges, railroad tracks and telegraph lines, to be used by the G
