Army of the Potomac. [our own correspondent.] Fairean C. H., Oct, 3, 1861. On account of the storm yesterday the general review that was ordered did not come off. The day was very wet and disagreeable, and nothing of importance transpired. This morning the sun rose clear, and the sky remained unclouded until night. About ten o'clock it was noised about that there would be a review of a portion of the troops, and the streets of Fairfax began to fill with people, horses, and wagons, and soldiers dressed in uniforms of every conceivable style and variety. A long time before any of the brigades came out a crowd had collected to see them, and so thick was it that one had to elbow sharply to get across the road. The first of the military that came in sight was Major Walton's battalion of Washington Artillery, consisting of three companies. They were waited near the Court-House, and while there the fourth company, under the gallant Capt. Rosser, came in from the outposts and j

n had been drawn up, and all awaited the arrival of the President. Gen. Davis, accompanied by the other Generals, and their staffs, and escorted by the Adams troop, rode first to General Walker's camp, and after having the brigade pass in review, went on to where the others had been stationed. After passing along the line, saluting the colors of each regiment, President Davis took a position by the roadside, and remained until the three brigades had passed him. He then returned to Gen. Beauregard's headquarters, and at five this evening was escorted to Fairfax station, en route to Richmond. The review was a grand sight, and was, on the whole, very satisfactory. The men were dressed neatly, and looked much more cleanly than one would imagine after having been so long in the field. The 1st Virginia looked exceedingly well, and, preceded by their fine brass band, marched with great regularity.--The 17th Virginia also looked well, and as it passed the solidity and compactness

The 17th Virginia, Colonel Corse, passed up the road, looking exceedingly well, and, followed by the Artillery, marched to the spot selected for the inspection. General Longstreet's brigade, General Cocke's, and Gen. Jones's ranged themselves by the roadside, the whole forming a line nearly a mile in length, commencing a short distance beyond the village, and extending to the forks of the road, near Germantown.--Meanwhile, Gen. Wm. Henry Walker's brigade at Germantown had been drawn up, and all awaited the arrival of the President. Gen.

Fires are seen in every direction, and it is believed that the Yankees are making a clean sweep in their course. Yesterday two videttes were captured by Stuart's cavalry and brought into camp. They had lost their way and run into our lines. A few changes have taken place within a day or two. Gen. Johnston has moved his headquarters into the village, and now occupies a cottage at the extreme end of the street leading towards Centreville. Gen. Smith is also here. Gen. Longstreet has returned from Coyle's Tavern, near Annandale, and has given the command of the outposts to Brigadier-General J. E. B. Stuart.
