Washington letters in a Northern paper says : ‘ Fayette McMullen has just got in from Richmond. He says there were 10,000 troops there, 10,000 at Norfolk, 7,000 at Harper's Ferry, and others were preparing to leave Richmond for the latter place. Nothing is talked of or thought of but military forces and military operations. Every other man is a soldier, and business is done gone forever. Mr. McMullen's business here is not made public, but he goes back and forth unmolested. This information is corroborated by Wilson Jones, Government scout, who returned this afternoon. He says, that having traversed the entire route from Richmond to Harper's Ferry, he should estimate the number of troops at and between those two places at 25,000. ’
