Many circumstances have very recently conspired to mite their works In oar front too hot to bold the rebels The victories In Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, tnd the demonstrations of tbe expedition of Major General Batler, were tbe preliminary constrictions of tbe anaconda that first convinced them of the wisdom of escaping Its folds la this region, if possible. They soon comprehended that their flick* had been turned at tMae distant points , that It was Imply a question of very short time when those operation* elsewhere would nrely cat the rebel army In Virginia off from any possible succor from other State* In Insurrection. A striking effect of the *ucce*ses of the Union arms of late, 1s the feet that on Friday last "Con J ' '1*1* In V?nr f)rl#ana (a jruciate uiuuey uau ??u?u ?? ??v?? v.,? ? fifty cents on tbe dollar, and by to-day probably to twenty-lVe centa on tbe dollar; or, In other words, that tbelr cause Is financially ruined They thua find themaelyrs without tbe means of buying supplies. Ac., and kjiowthat campaigns ran no more be fougbt without money than without arms They were well aware that, especially under such circumstances as we detail above, they were at the mercy of tbe Government's military preparations here, the moment It might be determined U set the colls of this portion of the anaconda ia motion. The advance of the division of tbe army under General Banks, Ac , was therefore more than they dared risk standing up against. We believe that they only came to the conclusion to abandon their elaborate defenses In this quarter on Tharaday laat, when they probably commenced felling back from Winchester and Leesburg; the latter having long been really untenable by them, unless they were willing to risk a decisive battle there. They made no contest at Leesburg with the two or three companies of our troop* that came down from Lovett's Gap (of the Blue Ridge) on the day before yesterday, to feel them, a* It were In retiring from there, they doubtless struck direct for thetr Manassas works. We find many Incredulous relative to the fact (oai mey ar? abandoning t&em alto. That, however, is a military necessity, since they have abandoned their defences on both their right and left flanks. The fact that they are dcing so is confirmed by ten or fifteen refugees and contrabands who, availing themselves of the withdrawal of their (the rebel) picket guards, have come within our lines In the last twenty-four hours. Thty cannot have spiked their enns and fled from their Potomac batteries and*their camps and batterlef from the mouth of the Occoqu^n up to Wolf-run shoal*?burning and destroying everything they could not carry off in a hurry, as they certainly have done?without thus leaving, their right flank wholly at our mercy, a? well a* their Winchentcr defence*? their left flink?with any intention of continuing to remain a moment longer at Manaasaa tban may be necewary to enable them to run tbelr main force away from that position. A portion of the refugee* and contrabands, from whom the information received comc*, believe uu v Intend to make attand at the Rappahannock river, twenty-four mile* in the rear ol T*a; Is simply impossible. because tbe line ol that river for ten miles north and aouth of the Orange and Alexandria Railroad la utterly un tenable, even with properly constructed earthworks?which they are without there. The first range of country which they mlghi make temporarily defensible, la at and around Culpeper Courthouse, thoughit* frequent eml nencss afford quite as good attacking as defend lng poaitiOQ^and there are plenty of them too 80, we do noLbolleve they will atop running until within aight of the smoke of the chlmnies ol Richmond.

The Praaldent and Secretary of War and the General-In-Chief of courae are buay aa beea, with the matter in hand, aa well aa every officer and man in the Army of the Potomac. .We have further te add, that we do uot believe the rebela will attempt to bold Richmond for a week longer, judging their furpoae to be to get back Into the cotton Stateaaaaoon aa poaalble; Richmond being lea* defenalble than Manaaaas waa three daya ago. At Richmond, if they dare fight there, they mail figh^ under the Influence of Intense panic occasioned by their pell-mell retreat from their lino of the Potomac, and without such stardy works in their front aa thoae they are now so precipitately abandoning.

THE STEVENS BATTERY. >Ir Steveis' Memorial to Cacgress Merit unanimously admitted by the Board of Examiners?Results of Experiments and Opinio** of Experts, disproving the objections of the Majority. The following is an abstrv.t of an elaborate paper thus entitled, and presented to Congress: The Board lately appointed to examine the Stevens Bittery, unanimously admit that the parts of the vesst-1 above water, and intended to be shot-proof, are inruln'rable; that the speed will be seventeen kno's. or nearly twenty miles an hour, even at the reduced s earn pressure of twenty five pounds; that the weight and efficiency of broadside, and also the capability of rapid maneuvering, are unprecedented: that all the guns can fire In any dlfection; that all the eight engines can be managed by two men; that the engine and other framing gives tbe central portion of the vessel great strength, and that the general objects aimed at are htghlv Important; besides which, various matter* of detail are approved. After which the majority of the Board base an opinion, upon rertain objections which they enumerate, that it is not expedient to finish the vessel '-on tbe p-ans proposed;" and aincethey have described and criticised the vessel in detail, it is fairly assumed that there are no other objections. The minority report of 1'rofessor Henry is entirely favorable Since tbe objections of tbe majority were wholly of an engineering character, and the only engineeriua experts on the board?Professor Henry and Mr Stiinors?were equally, divided in opinion upon them, and since the three sea officers of the Board acknowledged that they were not experts on these subjects, by asking that a Naval Constructor might be put on the Board, it follows that I hr re ia mn mn > f*ri t tJ , "r?" of experts against any feature of this vessel The only objection of the majority deemed material by Professor Henry is, that the ship la not strong enough to go to sea. This objection is answered by the certificate of Messrs. Harlan A Hollingsworth, of Wilmington. Delaware, and Messrs. Neafie, Levy ft Co., Philadelphia, teho hart built about trro-thirrfs of the iron ships tehirh this country has procured, that they have carefully examined the Battery, and find it strong enough to safely stand any weather at sea. This opinion is Indorsed by the certificate* of Mr. Lra*tusW. Smith, of New York, constructing ?n<T<nA?r - mm. mm, Hi- VI ?'I ??- ?*- ?*? nvCDIIiaUl |> XI lit B, UI itl I . i*l ICI> Coryell, Chief Engineer <>f tbe Morgan Iron Works, New York, and of other eminent engineers, shipbuilders and shipowners. Again, ait approved mathematical comparison, proves tbe Battery as strong as the Iron steamers Australasian and Grfat Eastern. Tbe elements of strength of the Battery are (hen fully and clcarly set forth The objection that the light upper deck would be'demolished" by firing over It, Is refuted by the fact that a far-slmlle of th* deck of tbe Battery. similarly sltaated and lired over, In a public experiment, tras not eren ttratntd or started perceptibly. ax witnessed and acknowledged by two members of the Board Five days before tbe date of their report Mr. Stevens urued the Board to witness this and other experiment*, but they deehntd to ?rait and s?e the fact, and declared that tvery artlllerest knew [ that tbe deck would be demolished. TUe objectior that the sides of tbe vessel cannot carrj the armor and other u-eight, is refuted by me tnumi uy mr. a. ? . EHDlttl l)ttorf mentioned, that a section of the side of the Teasel itself, cat loose from the adjacent parts, unsupported by the extra bracing designed to be put in, and loaded with above lictct the weight it would have to carry, <ftd not perceptibly yield, as tested bv gauges. . The objection that the boilers can nfely carry but twenty-live pounds of steam pressure, la re! futed by the certificate of the United States Supervising Inspector of boiler*, who states that he proved them with sixty-six and two-third pounds, which would entitle than hy law to carry Ji/ty poundt. The objection that the pumrs for removing the [ water used to settle the vessel from the coal-bunkers, bilge, Xc , would choke with fine coal and debris. Is disuroved bw tu? ?r titers who have employed the centrifugal pump* referred to. above six years, for ratling sunken f coal vessels; and by the sworn certificates of other r engineers, that these pumps, as used for wrecking purpose*, discharge shells, gravel, Ac., and often sev.nty-flve per cent, of sand. The objection that the vessel would sink if the shot-proof deck fore and aft th? casemate was 1 fl-H)d?>d. is answered by the fact that the buoyancy , of the shot-proof parts above water more than balances the loss of buoyancy bv flooding the 1 deck, and that the vessel would settle bat M# Inches Or, by pumping an equivalent amount of water out of the tanks, or by settling the vessel a little less In tbe first place, all which is optional, i tbe condition of things as specified in the report could not occnr all. The objection that the engine couplings being rigid, the shafts would cramp and heat, Is answered by the statement ?>f Mr. E. W. Smith and of Mr. .Miles Coryell (who has built 125 marine engines) that the couplings are not rigid, bat sufficiently flexible The two or three other objection* to matter* of detail are comparatively unimportant, and are completely disproved. ? Mr. Steven* attribute* the objection* to misconceptions on the part of the Board, which he could have removed if the Board had expressed any doubts while he teas btfort iktm. Instead of which, they omitted to witness the costly experiments he had prepared to prove the correctness of his view*. Mr Stevens then anawers an expreralon of the Board, which might be understood to Intimate tbat hi* plan of inclined armor ii a European Invention, and covered by English patents of 1858 and 1859, by stating that he experimented on Inclined armor during the war of 1612; and he republishes a letter from himself and brothers to a board of Army and Navy officers, dated August 13th, 1&41, In which they advocate this and moist of tbe other Improvements in modern war vessels. He then states that keeping theae plans and results secret for th? K?n??? n. '? - ?? ? ? His uuuuw y, wu done at great sacrifice of personal considerations., Then follows tbe statement of Col. Delafleld, (now la charge of the defences of New York,) presumed to represent the views of military engineers generally, that the objects aimed aft In this vessel are highly Important and can be successfully accomplished The memorial concludes with the statements, that the Oortrnment already hat interest 0/ half a million dollars tn the Battery; that its wkou east will t? less than kalf that of the European iron-clad vessels, which, according to the report of the Board, ars far inferior, as to protection, speed and tJfieUnry of broads idt; that tbe time required to build a v?Mel of equal dimensions ana oower wonlil K? ?inK> ? -tw- - *? , - ? w V.6u?vt.n uiuuiua 10 two veara, while tbe Battery can be flnUhrd la about lour month*; that tbe smaller iron-clad vesaeia now ordered, however valuable for special purpoaea, cannot compete with auch fast and heavy veaae a aa the Warrtor. nor keep them out of out harbora; that mil tk* great /talnr** of tke Battery are gerurally approved , and that no objetttont kare been ratted that earn be maintained. In an appendix there are presented illustrations and a description of tbe vessel, a full statement of her fighting qualities. and the reaulta of elaborate experiment, aa noted by Mr. Btevaoa, and by Mr. W . Craven, Chief Engineer, Croton Aqueduct Department, on tiring the heavleat ordnance at a target reprexentlng the armor of the Battery; en the rapid loading of heavy guaa by ateaa, and atepping their recoil by India rubber; aad on settling a fraael Into tbe water for baiter pretee! tloo, ar <i rap'dly turning her on her cenlar by two B-.iew propellera.

The Baltimore Sun of this morning ?aya The steamer Adelaide, Capt. Cannon, arrived athalf-paat nine o'clock yesterday morning, from Old Point; having left the latter place at eight o'clock on Saturday night. She brought the important intelligence of an engagement between leveral United States and Confederate vesael* In Hampton Roada, between the mouth of James river and Sewall's Point. The newa, aoon after the arrival of the Adelaide yesterday morning, created quite a aenaation, and an endleaa variety of exaggerated reporta were put In circulation. It appeared, after careful inquiry, that passengers who came up in the Adelaide, and aeemed to be intelligent, stated that the Confederate steamer Merrimac came out at one o'clock on Saturday afternoon, while the Federal frigates Congress and Cumberland were lying off Newport Newspolnt. She headed for these vessels, and was soon within range of the Congress, which opened a broadalde on her without any perceptible effect She passed the Congress, when the Cumberland opened a broadside on her, but that likewise had no Injurious effect, and In a few minutes more the Merrimac struck the Cumberland am1dsh<p, and so crushed in her aide that she sunk in a few minute*. It was reported that one hundred and fifty of those on board were known to have been saved. but bow many were lost was not known. Tbe Merrlmar next turned her attention to tbe Congress, wblcb bsd not ceased to fire on ber, and after a abort engagement captured ber and all on board. Tbe officer* and crew of tbe Congress were sent to Pig's Point, and the Congress was Immediately manned by Confederates. Tbe frigate St. Lawrence was engaged by tbe Confederate steamers Jamestown and Patrick Henry, and la said to bave b-en disabled and rua ashore in a sinking condition. Tbe steam frigate Minnesota left Old Point to Join In the engagement, when the Confederates turned tbe guns of the Congress against her, but she grounded, and was still aground when the Adelaide left Old Point.

The correspondent of the Philadelphia Inquirer says : Fortius Moshok. March 8.?The d nines* of Old Point was startled at 10 o'clock to-day by the announcement that a mysterious vessel, supposed to be the rebel steamer Merrimac, and looking like a submerged house, with the roof only above water, was moving down from Norfolk by the channel In front of Sewall's Point. Signal guns were also fired by the U S sloop uf-war Cumberland and the frigate Congress, to notify the Minnesota. St. Lawrence and Koanoke of the approaching danger, and ail was excitement in and about Fortress Monroe. There was nothing protruding above the water but the flag-staff, flying the rebel flag, and a short smoke-stack. She moved along slowly, and turning into the channel leading to Neport News, steamed direct for the Cumberland and Congress, Whirb \VPri? 1 vlnu at thn month nf I ..?> -l v? kt?v ??IUC? I I ?H . Aa soon hk the Merrlmac rami' within range of tb? Cumberland, the lattrr opened on her with her heavy guns, but tbe balls struck and glanced off, having uo more (fleet on her than peas from a pop-gun. Her porta were all closed, and she moved on in silence, but with a full head of steam. In the meantime as the Merrlmac was approaching the two frigates on the one Hide, the iron-clad iteamers Yorktown and Jamestown came down the J amen river and engaged our frigates on the other side. The batteries at Newr jrt News also opened on the Jamestown and Yorktown and did all In their power to assist the Cumberland and Congress, wnich being sailing vessels, were at the mercy of the approaching steamers. The Merrlmac in the meantime kept steadily on her course, and slowly approached the Cum i?. nana, wben tbe latter, u well u the Congress, at tbe distance cf one hundred yards, rained full broadsides f n the Iron clad monster. The shots took no effect, glancing upwards and flying off, having only the effect of checking her progress for a moment. After receiving tbe first broadildes of the two frigate* ah* ran Into tbe Cumberland, striking her about the midships and literally laying open her tide, fc'he then drew off, Urea a broadside Into tbe disabled ship, and again dashed against her with her iron-clad prow, and knocking In ber side left ber to sink, while she engaged the Congress, which laid about a quarter or a mile distant. Tbe Congress bad, In tbe meantime, kept up a sharp engagement with the Yorktown acd Jamestown, and navlng no reeular crew on board of b< rand seeing tbe helplessness of resisting the iron-clod steamers, at once struck her colors. Her crew bad been discharged several days since, and three companies of the Naval Brigade had been put on board temporarily until she could be relieved by the 8t. Lawrence, which was to have gone up on Monday to take her position aa one of the blockading vessels at tbe James River. On the Congress striking her colors tbe Jamestown approached and took from on board all tbe r>fflr*r? ?? ??rl?' w.tvviKia, uui aiiuwfU IDC OffW 10 escape in the boat*. Tbe veaie 1 being thus cleared It waa fired by the Rebels, when the Merrlmac and her two Iron-clad companions opened with shot and shell on the Newport News batteries. The firing was briskly returned. Various reports have been received, principally from frightened sutlers' clerks. Some of them represented that the garrison had been compelled to retreat from tbe batteries to tbe woods.
