From Northern Virginia.

The intelligence which we receive from our forces now operating on the Northern border of the State is exceedingly meagre. We have nothing really definite or satisfactory as to the present location of our army, and only rumors with reference to the movements of the enemy. Some of the passengers who came down on the Central train yesterday evening assert positively that the main body of Meade's forces has crossed the Potomac at different fords east of the mountains, whilst others maintain that there is no considerable force of the enemy on the South side of the river, and that they have only their cavalry on the Virginia side. Between these conflicting statements it is difficult to arrive at the truth.
