The following telegram from Gen Ptooe'a command to the Headquartera here, tella how the new progressing fght near Lecaburg commenced,thia morning: "Edw*id's Feext , Oct. 21,1861 ?This morning, at one o'clock, flee com pan lee of the Fifteenth Massachusetts croaaed the river at Harrison's island, at daybreak They bad proceeded to within a mile and a half of Leeahurg without meeting the enemy They still hold on, supported by the remainder of the regiment and part of the Twentieth "A gallant reconnoiaaaaee waa made early thia morning,by MaJ Mix, Van Allen?Cavalry, Cap*. Stewart. A. A. G , from Edward'a Ferry towards Leeaburg, with 30 cavalry. They came on the itth Mlssissslppi regiment, received their Are at 35 yards, and returned It with their pistole, and fell back In order, bringing In one prisoner. " We have.poeseaalon of the Virginia aide of Edwards' Ferry " We learn Incidentally that the poeltloa of oor t'oops subsequently attacked?by the enemy?waa Hamilton laland, about three mi lea Tom Leeeburg Up to 3 p. m to-day Gen Stone bad held hie own sat1*factorlly there, though his comparatively small force upon the island are engaged with some 4,000 of the enemy. We predict that by sundown to-day either Gen. Stone's or Gen. McCall'a advance will oocupy Leesburg. * Knowing the position of Geo McCall'a division, we take it for granted that he haatened to get between the force attacking Stone and reinforcementa to that force from the direction of Leeeburg. the alleged ?rrxBsxprax or ex* fbimoitt In a few minutes after publishing our flrat edition to-day we became aatlafled of the Incorrectness of the Impression intimated ta it, that ere leaving St Louia Secretary Cameron trunomltted to Major General Fremont ordera assigning Major General Hunter to the command of the depart* mentof Missouri, in his stead On the contrary, we feel that we may atate poa itlvely that he (Secretary Cameron) declined to act In the premises until sfter his return here. Of course, those are almply our Individual impressions, baaed upon such floating data as wn have been able to gather to-day. THOUGHT BETTER OH'T. It turns out that Beauregard had determined to give Gen McClellsn a fight on Friday last, at or about the crnaalng of Goose Creek by the Alexandria and Georgetown turnpikes to Leesbnrg. He 4>ad, on that day, four reglmenta of infantry, (the 13th Mississippi being one of them,) and aome cavalry, with much baggage. The approach of Gen. McCall'a division In larger force than he anticipated, however, evidently caused him to change his mind; and he accordingly retired bia troops referred to above in the direction of Mana*sa?. FAIRFAX COCKT HOC*X. It is alleged this afternoon that the enemy withdrew entirely out of Fairfax Court Houae laat night We have n? time, however, la which to verify the fact ere jjolng to preaa. navy taed. There la no newa of lntereet from down the river The Reliance went down to join the flotilla lust night. The Robert L?elle started down at noon to-day. As the particulars of the capture of the achooner Fairfax Lave been erroneoualy atated, we have been a! some pains to get a correct account of the affair. On Saturday morning, during the prevalence of a heavy fog down the river, the steamer Resolute made fast to two schoonera-^-taklng the Lydla Ann on the atarboard side, and the Fairfax, Capt Mott, on the larboard. Just as the boats got fairly within range of tft Confederate bafteriea, about 9 o'clock, am, rain commenced falling, and the fog lifted The Confederate* commenced firing rapidly, and In one hoar discharged 154 rounds at these vessels The Fairfax received 25 shots In her hull, and about 29 In her deck load of hay, and aloft. One shot passed through the awning of the Reeoluta, aft, splintering the sustaining bar, and paaaed Into the cabin of the l.ydla Ann,where the captain was at dinner?no doubt spoiling his appetite. The Resolute must have been sunk If it had not been for the protection the Fairfax and her deckload of bay afforded. When the vrasels were nearly out of range tbe hawaer of the Fairfax parted, and left tbe Reeolute rxposed If this accident bad occurred ten minutes sooner, tbe Resolute must have been aunk. It would havecertalnly led to tbe loaa of the Roaolute, if an attempt bad b?en made to again take tbe Fairfax in tow. The Fairfax fell Into the hands of the Confederates She wai loaded with bay and cement, and had on board a ptano and some furniture belonging to Mr. John^vans. of tbe Williamsburg (N. Y ) Time*. That gentleman's pecuniary ioas Is about tl 0U0 , but he lost some afticles which, on account of family association, cannot be valued Some of the men on tbe vessels sasert that they heard the grating of a chain along tbe keels ef the vessels, but tbe oflcers of the flotilla treat the chain atorv a? a good joke. Tbere was a rumor afloat that 50U Confederates hsd croaaed and recroaaed tbe Potomac laat night between Shipping Foint and Evaaaport, bat the report la not credited, because tbe nnly place where they have boats to ensble tbem to croes te at Aquia Creek, and at that point a crossing woold be thwarted, not only by tbe flotilla at that point, but by a portion of Sicklea' brigade stationed en the Maryland aide oppoalte the month ef tbe creek.
