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 leftmore of the enemy's scouts will venture upon it. Its occupation by Gen. McClellan, as explained above, is equivalent to a forward movement of his advance of perhaps two miles. At one time yesterday forenoon Gens. McClellan, Barry, Stoneman, Fitz.

These new ones vary from thirty-one to thirty-five feet in diameter at the widest part, and, including the cords and basket, are about one hundred feet from top to bottom.

Professor Lowe is now forming a balloon corps for the working and transportation of his various balloons, who will probably rank as lieutenants, and will receive $3 a day till their rank and pay shall be definitely established.

morning, and arrested Mrs. Jackson, mother of Elisworth's murderer, and her half-brother, named Moore. Her house was situated within the rebel lines, and was used as a headquarters for their scouts. It is believed that much information has been furnished them from this source. She said there had been some thirty there, and she gave them a cup of tea. She or Moore would not give any satisfaction to the men sent by Gen. McCall, and were accordingly handed over to the provost guard here.--Wash. Cor. Phil. Inq. Affairs in New York.

M. on Saturday, a portion of Beauregard's force, consisting of at least, three regiments in sight, made their appearance near Minor's hill, a considerable emins, however, plain, from the efforts of the enemy to hide themselves as much as possible, that no attack was designed by Beauregard that afternoon, while the signs indicated that he might venture one by daybreak yesterday (Sunday) morning.

It seems that the corporation attorney, Mr. Bradley, in his opinion declaring it unnecessary to go into a new election now, in view of Mr. Wallach having been heretofore chosen Mayor pro tem. during Mr. Berret's " disabilty," admits that had the pro tempore selection taken place in consequence of "disability" arising from sickness of the actual Mayor, and the latter had subsequently died, a new election then would be necessary.
