From the Seat of War.

We have no additional news from our army on the Potomac. The accounts which we receive of the battle of Saturday last tend to confirm the opinion that it resulted in one of the most decisive and glorious triumphs of the present war. The loss on both sides must have been great, but we understand that it is asserted by officers who rode ever the field after the battle was ended, that the enemy's loss was at least five to our one.

The reports with reference to the present position of our army are conflicting: one representing it to be at Munson's Hill, in sight of Washington city, and another at Leesburg, in London county. This mach we are guaranteed in saying:

‘ that it is not idle, and that at no distant day we may hear of another and more effective blow than even this last, powerful as it has been.

’ A dispatch received late last evening at the War Department confirms the evacuation of Winchester by the enemy's forces.
