RUMORS A FLO ST AT SHE CAPITAL. To-day has been a day of rumors. All day long the populace have been standing upon the side Walks and groupod upon the house tops, with hand to ear, listening for the sounds of the conflict that was expected to take place In the vicinity of Bally's ?roes Roads. Every horse kick in tho stable was construed into the report of a cannon, and every carpenter's hammer upon a board was supposed to 1>e tbe booming of k big gun. But al) bad confidence In General MoClelian and the whole cily rested easy under the impression that under his command a.l is right. And there Is no reason for apprehension. There is no doubt that tho robel forces are in close and threatening proximity to our Noes. In addition to the entrenchments they have orectod on Mason's Hill, and the battery Shey have erected at Barcroft's Mill, on tbe Columbia turnpike, between Bailoy's Cross Roads and Denton's tavorn. They set up a battery on Mason's Hill, en tho Leesburg pike, and one also on tho high ground between the Leesburg pike and Hunting crock, both of which command Bailoy's Cross Roods. Our pickets have had several engagements with the enemy during lairt night and to-day, between Ball's Cross Boi ls and Bailey's Cross Roads. The robol advance is gaid to be within an eighth of a milo of Bail's Cress Ron dp?a mile and three-quarters from our works en Arlington Heights, and two miles and a hall from tho Virginia cud of the Georgetown Aqueduct. They held these positions during the night only, and to day retired behind their batteries. It is said that two of our picket guard, some distance from tbe Chain Bridge, were killed last night, nod that m ? of rw lain Waflarav a comnanv nf I-.- iJ ? , r?, ?-..J k lib rc h is been no further ci.gngrm nt to-day. Yesterday afternoon Colonel HiUinan, with Chptain Dlrtg.oy's company ot the Twenty.third New York regiment went to Bail's Cross Road* to support our picket guards at that i>oiut. They ware met by a regiment the rebels. Borne thirty rounds wore exchanged before our nuslt retired. Cart oil, of Klni'ra, of the Tw uty-third X. w York egiment, was killed, end one other of the sanv company wss slightly wound or). That the rebels mean mischief is unmistakable. Tb".v ca, net help it. They have nothing la Virginia to support thera. Tliey have eaten everything out. They have levied contributions on farmers, and are now in such a desperate strait that they must tnnke u fight or retreat. Tl\is is the whole secrot of tiro rebel movements. They ?re obliged to atlaek Washington or disband their foriou. The people of Washington do not fear their attack, and the Union foroi s across the river are eager for an oppor tunity to t rove that General McClellan is a general who understands what he is doing. The skirmishing uiion our line, in the estimation of army officers, amounted to nothing. It wi.s only tin faint irmtte lug of tlio storm that is to come. The rebels approached within two and a half, ihi Virginia end of the Goorgeti wn acqueduct to day, aim wan ton t> fired Into tho house of Captain Geary, w It" r commanding a Union cavalry compauy, about two and .a tab miles from the acq cdurt, od the Virgiam side. :e ne TUB OBJECT OF THE NAVAL EXPEDITION FKOM F0KTHE88 UONHOE. the m*io ohji'ct of tho fleet which has lately loft Kortresa Monroe is to blockade Ihe Southern coast and to obrflruct cerutiu inlets. No invasion is couteutiiiated. TUB AHMY. The President to-day appointed as Atrfi-de-Gimp to GenWool Alexander Hamilton, Jr., and Legrand II. < annon, of Now York, each with the rank of Major, and William Jay, of Bedford, N. Y., with thu rank of Captain. These npiMiiiitments were made at Gen. Wool's request, and Uie otlicial notification from thu War Department instructs the aids to immediately report to him m person. Their commissions will bear date August 28. The order detailing Captain J. B. Fry, Assistant Genor. al, from the duty tu which he is now engaged, to the Staff of General Hunter in the West, as announced in to-day's Haaaui, is this day re\ > kud. Colonel Fletcher Webster, who commands the Webster regiment of Massachusetts, in General Hanks' column at Mount Ayer, near Point or Rooks, arrived here yesterday, on business for his command. The opinion of all military men who liaNO Been Colonel Webster's regiment is, that it m one of the tail appointed and best drilled in the volunteer service. Major Generals MeClellan, Fremont and IToliock, who have been appointed to that rauk iu the regular aimy, were all formerly olllcsrs of Die army?two of them gene rals, Motfellan and Hal tuck, and West I'ulnt graduates, and were foremost In their class. General Fremont achieved a reputation for himself as a cavalry oiilcerupou the Plains and in frequent engagements with Indians. The four Major Generals for voluntoers are Hunter, Fix, Banks and Butler. General H.mtor 1s a graduate of West Point, and was appointed from tho regular army. Gemuai Rix hue served ih our army under General Scott, while Generals Banks and Butler were appointed from civil lifo aud have boon uuiverBally approved. These Generals liave already made evident not only administrative hut military talent Unit has attracted to them the attention of tho nation. The brilliant administrative ability manifested by G"nura| Banks, as Speaker of tho House of Representatives aud Governor of the State of Massachusetts, wag but an earnest of what is promised in his military career. Brigadier Generals MansfieM, McDowell, Meigs, Anderson, Ripley, Koscncrauz and Thomas,are all graduates ol West Point, and were all distinguished in their classes. Thirty-six of the flfty-fuur Brigadier Generals appointed are West l'oint graduates, two others were ofllaers of the regular army, and still four othurs served with distinction as volunteers m tho Mexican war. There are only twelve of tho Brigudlors who have not had the advantage of eithor military education or actual experience in the art of war. Brigadier General Burnsides is detailed to tho department of Major General Anderson j- who is ordered to Kentucky. THE NAVY.

REPORT OF GENERAL DIX IN THE CASE OF QUARTERMASTER BULGER. Serious charges having having been presented to the War Dejiartment alledgfcig tlwt Major James Bulger, Assis tant Quartermaster at the Important (lejK.t st lialtimoro, was his charge by making his purchases from, aud employing hs subordinate agent?, persons inimical to the government, the matter was in iinnnml Hi* for invrsiitrnt inn Th.ifc fficer, wb>*e high-toned character and rigid loyalty madeltlmuf all others the proper ono to investigate ao serious a charge, has submitted his report. Calling before blmsomoof the most prominent citizens of Baltimore, who were in froqucnt intercourse with Major Be Igor, and obtaining from them statements in writing of what they know as to his general course in malting his purchases and giving empldyKSnt, the General comes to the exclusion that the charges against Major Belger "are so far as thoy allege an intentional bostowment of the public patronago on disloyal men, utterly groundless." It couid scarcely have been avoided, a stranger in Baltimore, that some of his purchases should have been frem disloyal men; but It is shown most conclusively that his eifbrtM have been to throw the public money intrusted to him in the right channel; and that whoncvor he has found himself deceived as to the Union proclivities of his agents, even down to carters and draymen, he has applied the correction immediately by dismissing themfromservlce. General Dix,in.eonctudlng his report says:?"I think lnm (Major Belger) an clllcieiit, faithful and conscientious public servant, and believe tlin pecuniary interests of tho Department will not suffer in his hands."

Much valuable information has resulted from this inquiry. THE POTTER INVESTIGATING OOMMITTEE.
