U00NN01SSAN0E OP THE REBEL ADVANCED POSTS?THJi NEW POSITIONS TAKEN DP BV THE KNEW. Matters near the Union lines en the Virginia side of the Potomac remain pretty much as they were yesterday. The enemy still continue to show themselves near out pickets, and occasionally fire at tbem. No movement o) importance, however, has yet been made by our troops, The enomy have not only re-established their old line 0| pickets as before the battle of Bull run, but have actuallj encroached upon the territory formerly held by us,nearl> one-half mile nearer our line of fortifications They now occupy several Important strategical points upon which they are throwing up f >rtilicat long. The line of the encmy'a pickets covering our front on tin Virginia side of the Potomac commences on the Oratig and Alexandria Railroad, running thenco In an irreguhu course, taking advantage of all the natural lines of de fence, across the Little River turnpike, between Clouds Mills and Benton's tavern, to Bancroft's Mills, at the Junction of Hunting creek and the Columbia turnpike At this place the enemy have constructed a breastwork commanding the turnpiko in the direction of Bailey 'i Cross Roads. Proceeding from this point, over tilled fields and through heavy woods, the line of rebo; pickets continues to Munson'B Hill, one and a quartet milos from Bailey 's Cross Roads, on tho Leesburg turn pike. On this hill the enemy are constructing works They have now a temporary battery of rifled cannon al the southerly face of the hill, from which for the past few days they have kept up a desultory flre on our troops at Bailey's Cross Roads. Proceeding In a northwesterly di recti'>n from Munson'B Hill,about one and a half miles we reach a small mountain, the summit of which com mands the country for four miles around, over, looking the famous Union works at Arlington This mountain three days ago was within tin easy grasp of our troops, but since thai timo has been seized by the rebels, and upon it they art constructing large fortifications. This point is of im mcQRo strategical value to tne rebels, in obstructing the , marcli of our troops into the interior of tbo State, shoulc uch a measure be adopted. Frem (his mountain th< enemy's line of pickets stretch along, in a northwester]] direction, to the farm of Basil Hall, and from there, in t westerly direction, to a point opposite the Chain Bridge Along the route reforred to the uncmy have several depoti Of supplies and reinforcements, at least three new fortifl cations, and probably double that number concealed ane under construction. From a personal reconnoissance, made by our specia correspondent, of the enemy's force at Mun ecu's HiU, he discovered thut it consisted of sever hundred cavalry, one thousand infantry, and three piect-i of Hold cannon. Of all those rebel movements Genera McClellan is fully apprised, and he will, no doubt, whet . the proper time arrives, pay his respects to the enemy. A BALLOON RECONNOISSANCE. A balloon reconnoissance was made by Professor Inwc to-day at Arlington Heights. The balloon was in the aii at a considerable height for Beveral horns. THE REBBL PICKETS DRIVEN FROM BAILEY'S CR08f ROADS. A messenger from the Virginia side this morning stab'! that our pickot forces advanced to Bailey's Cross Roads yesterday, and drove those of the rebels a mile and a hall beyond, where It Is said the latter have taken poss 'ssior ?if n mmmanilinir orninancA And nrn ihrntarincr tin in trenchmonts. There was much firing during the day, but without fatal results. The inhabitants gcuorally of that section hare removed elsewhere, some of them to this city. A dash of rebel cavalry, it is reported by tho messenger was made at what they supposed to bo a deserted camion about twelve rounds had been fired at it from their howitzers. On a nearer approach, howover, they discovered H to fie a sham, some of the Michtganders having do ccived the onemy for sport by mountiug an old stovepipe on wheels. Throe of the rcbol cavalry wero tukon prisoners to-da> by our picket at Bailey's Cross Reads. the encounters with the enemy's pickets. It is extremely difficult to obtain reliable intelligent* respecting the result of the picket encounter on the othei ide of fhe river, but there seems to be truth in the re ports that several of our troops wero killed and otheri wounded along our lines yesterday and last night. interesting intelligence from richmond. A gentleman arrived here to-day fr< m Richmond, via Louisville, Ky. He has spent several weeks in Virginia and visited the lines of the rebel army of the Potomac. Ho cs imates the number now in arms in Virginia at nearly lliree hundred thousand, and tho force on tin Potomac alone at ono hundred and eighty thousand. Since the 1st of Juno immense quantities of nrsis, purchased in the East, have been curried int< the Slate thr ugh Baltimore, and their whole army is now well armed. Manasses Junction has been virtually abandoned. there being only a guard left there to look after the guns in battery. Tho principal body of their forces has been pur bed forward to the Upper Potomac, to be thrown across into Maryland, for which movement ?column of forty thousand is prepared, witli pontoon bridges, upon which they can cross at any point they Had She least defended. nicy are determined to make an fli'Tt to get Maryland In their possession, aud they Itoliove that will insqre their ultimate possession ol this city and all the immense accumulation of sup plies ere, and enable them to transfer the war from the Potor. ac to the Susquehanna, and secure totliein lav recognition by Europe of the Southern confederacy. This progrr has been decided upon. The eports if the battle of Bull run spread throughout the whole South havt kin lied an almost inconceivable en Ihusinsin.uud induced '.he belief that not only Washing. [E NE t< n may bo captured, but lite whole North conquered Jefferson Davis made President of the wbolo United Stales. and slavery extended throughout the Union. Even those who were backward in aiding the effort to es tablish a Southern confederacy are now euthu >iastio in their desire to re establish tho Union tinder a Southern Presidency. Tb y think the tables are turned, and instead of lighting to prevent aggression they are fighting now to compter ft country A force of about four loon thousand men . has gone to Win. Chester, to be ready to co-operate with the column now menacing tho position of General Banks and Genera! Stone. The approaches upon our lines immediately in front of this city are merely feints; but the forco there is deemed sufficient to carry our works at Alexandria and the Chain Bridge, if the principal I?rt of our forces should bo callod away to repel the at tempt to cross the Upper Totomac. TUB POSTAL SYSTEM SUSPENDED IN PORTIONS OK KENTUCKY. The Post office Department having autlwntlc information that the mails have been repeatly violated and cannot be carried safely in that part of Kentucky namod herein, it is ordered that the l'ost Offices at llickman, Co iumbus, and l'aducali, Kentucky, und all other Tost t tlVcs and )K)Ft routes in Kentucky west of the Tennessee rlvor. he discontinued, excepting as follows:?Route No. 9,062, from KussellvUta via Cadiz uuil Mayfleld, is con liuuod as far us Mllburn, und all Post Offices on that route, excepting Aurora, are continued.

On the contrary, the indications are that ail the European governments intend to continue to re> spect the blockade and to await the result uf the contest. REBEL OFFICERS IN BALTIMORE* Thore is no doubt oilicersof the rebel army have recent y visited Baltimore, und passed openly through the streets there without interruption, in uniform of | officers of the United Stales Army.

There is considerable discontent in the Thirty sevonth New York Volunteers in consequence of the conduct of Colonel McCunn. It appears, as I am Informed, that the colonel attempted to force some of his political friends Into tho poats of Ueuteuanta, to which tho captains of companies object, as the regtmcut holds tho advanced post and may be put Into action at any momont, and they ito not wiah to serve with incompetent subordinates.

The telegruph is in good workiug order hence to Washington. Accounts from Sandy Hook yesterday report that squads of rebels have crossed from the Virginia side, and, with the aid of local rebels, are beginning to pluy their pranks upon the unolTcnding Unionists in the vicinity, in the absence of the Union forces. One of the messougors of Gcnernl Banks, named MoCabo, obtained permission on Friday to visit his family, who woro residing at Bandy ICiHik. He started, mounted on a Hno horse, with new saddle and other tranninvs. Nothing has been heard from him since, unit as there was no question about hm loyally, there i? no doubt about his having heeu captured hy the rebels. I(o was, fortunately. without army despatches of any description. Tho business of army couriers or messengers is a res|KKisihle and dangerous one,'and"none but mou of tried integrity uud loyally should bo employod m the service; and, so far as General Banks' command is concerned, none others are. They are entitled to compensation according ly. It is staled the rebels pay high sums to persons engaged In this service in their ar mii'S;1>ui the tho money docs not aecompnny thn statement that furnishes tho amount of)>ay. The rebels pay tlioir spies from $100 to $1,000, according to the value of the information they procure and transmit; and there is a "right smart chance" of people In tho South, rowing tltwbt in ihc NOrTTi, who would risk their necks for a prize of a thousand dollars. A brace of foul birds of this sort were caught on Sugar I/'af Mountain today, taking observations of movements below. Tiiey were eagt d.

Scenes at the Assistant Treasury?The Rush of Women?Increase of Applicant* Ac., Ac., Ao Tho Ass ist.uit Treasurer anil all the dorks In bl sdspartmenl wore leapt busy yesterday attending to the applications for subscription to tho national loan. As early as nine o'clock one patriotic lady was In wailing at the office, with frfiOO in gold, carefully tied up. She hod hurried dowu from Connecticut, und was in fidgets lest she might bo too late. Ilor anxiety in that respect was s-t at rest, the forms wero duly tilled up, tho cert 1(1 cato of depoeil bunded tu her, and she went off rejoicing. One by one ludostrlous mechanics or their wives came In yrlth tlieir flrty, hundred or two hundred dollars, as the case mi .lit be, and Invested It tn tho government loan. Servant cirts. too. luailo their uoi earaacn nt the counter with thmr savings, probably drawn from the hunk*. As 'an Mustration of tho general feeling among that worthy class of our population, it has been stated by a president of one of our savings banks that wkou he went homo the other evening lis found no loss than fix servant girls waiting to see him for I ho purpose of drawing their de|K>siU next day, that ttiey might invest them In Treasury notes. They suid that such tho ad vino of their pri sts; and a very sen* sible and proper advice it was. There appears to be soma apprehension among the directors of thoso institutions iluti the drain uikib them witli this object may bo very* prejudicial to their interests. It is a curious fact, how* ever, that the deposits m our city savings hanks for the last three months have Mien about equal to tho with" drawols. Let the croikers derive sumo consolation from that. Tho number of applicants yesterday at Mr. Cisco's office was one hundred uud thirty Ave?most of them women?and the aggregate amount of sub-crlptions received was $270,000. Tins was a considerable increase over Wednesday's operations, as that day's whs over previous onus. Much of tha business is done by tetter? mail applications coming prlnctiiully from Massachusetts and Connecticut. The individual subscriptions yesterday were for larger suras than thu average uf previous days; still there were a large number of til'ty and ono hundred dollar subscriptions. One rough looking specimen cam* In, stopped up to the counter, and untying a soiled handkerchief. Isid down the contents with a most consequential air, saying he had come to lend the government live hundred dollars. Of course the proper degree of gratitude was expressed, the money taken, and thu necessary certillcnto issued. it is amusing to notice how almost all subscribers ascribe their action in the matter to pure patriotism, and ignore altogether any idea of |>ersrnal advantage, gome look upon, it ns ihe performance of a high duty to their country, and so it is. One old gentlemun from New Jcrsoy came in with a check fir $0,000 on one of our city banks. The rule la not to tuKchecks from subscribers who come ta person, bocauso the clerical forco of the oflice is not large enough to allow of sending out clerks for collection. The .b-rsoyman was informed of that rule. "Well," said ho, "the only thing I caro about is to lie able to show my own . heelr .'rnwn in favor of the l^sisf nnt Treasurer of tho United Stat??, anil endnrHed b> him.'1 Tt wan something he would prize iu the present, and would leave an an heirloom for the future. Resides, ho wanted toexhibit it among his neighbors, and so Are them to emulate him. Finally Inn wishes wore gratified In thle way; he wvnt tip to hi-; bank, drew tlio money or bis chock, and had that check exchanged for the one he had originally drawn in favor of tlot Assistant Treasurer, and endori-cd l>y him. Ho went home huppt. A lady, animated by a somewhat limilar feeling, wan noxious to know wiietbcr tlio nolo to be forwarded to her from Wnahington would bo encioaod In a regular official eiiveU p . Sliu was Hatinfled on that point, and wont off in. good humor. _ .<* *, The pressure of business wag ho groat y outer day thai additional c e/ical help was necessary.

The French nu* tlonnl loan to tbcamouut of $100,000,000 was raised among tie people in three days, an I so eagor woro the p -ople to s'lli- lihu that on tho last day of taking tho loon hutt<l:e's of persons, unable to register their names at tho oillces it) I'aris, took tin railroads to the neighboring town where tho pressure was nut so grcut at the government bureaus. TVe have uo doubt but that a similar expo: intent of our government would show a like resultlfut w" have not come to that yet. The necessity for some more simple arrangement In tho taking of ih"sc subscriptions is manifest. It cannot bo atinnot, however, until tho notes aro n-ady for i-sue. The work of getting them engraved, printed, signed and filled up is great t than any one can conceive. There aro no 1,-ss ttinri one hundred and eleven distinct pat"B, or parts of pint *s, to bo engraved and printed. All of these have one or more tints which must bo printed separately, and 'he engravings on the backs also require separate printing. Hi< largo number of plates Ir rendered n cessarjr by tlio various denominations of the notes, by the different places at which they are to bo made payable, and by tbe necessity of doplicat ing thorn so as to accolcrato the printing. The demand notes?of small denominations and not. bearing Interest?are lieing forwarded now to Washington at the rate of $400,000 a day. The issue of tbe 7 3 10 per cent notes was delayed by the change of annexing coupons to Uiem. But in a week or two at farthest all will tie ready, and then there wilt not be, or ought not to bo, any delay or circumlocution in their btung supplied to subscribers. It will not do, how ver, to adhere to the present plan of sending applleatioi s to Washington. The Assistant Treasurers at New Yo^k, Boston. Philadelphia,St. Louis and Cincinnati ought to havo, under proper guards and restrictions, the Treasury notos ready signed, witli a blank for tho name of tho subscriber, and theso should be band< d over the counter on the payment of tho m >ney The same arrangement should be made with the associated bank*, perhaps that is one of the measures which the Rank Committee at Washington are striving to bring about. If it can bo done without any risk to tho Treasury?and we cannot see why it should not be?the subscriber.? to tlie loan would increase a hundredfold. THE NEW JERSEY" FIFTH REGIMENT EN ROUTE.
