General HcClcIIan received intelligence this morning tliat a sharp skirmish took place this morning 011 tin ether side of the river, near Bailey's Cross Roads, betwoin a body of about two hundred rebels and the picket guaro of General Richardson's brigade. The evident intention of tho rebel skirmishers was to surprise the I'n.on pick" s, and cither tako them ju-isoners, kill them,o, flrlve them in; but our boys, although less in number Charged haudsomoly upon tho rebels, and killed some, jook S 'mo prisoners, and stampeded the rest. This daring move ou mo pari 01 uio rebels is tRkon as evidence el' a detc: minatlon by them to bring on a general engagement Denoial Mi Cielian is ready for tin m. THE POSITION OF TIIR HOSTILE AUMIES. The rclativo positions of tlio two armies remained up k -light the Siimo as yesterday. The rebels are throwing pp immense earthworks on both sides of Munson's Hill, un the Uosburg turnpike, one tnilo from Bailey's Cross Hoods, l'ho hill referred to Is of cleared land, and thcene my m ike uo secret ot their movemonts. Their cavalry ,<>. which'hay have several hundred near that locality,ma Bmivroov^r the hills,and sometimes venture in small.it tachnents to wiihiu half amileorsooftheUuionpickets. For ttts nrosnmption several of them wore shot to-day. Tie temjsr.try rebel rifle cannon battery alluded to in my drs patch if yesterday?located at the smith side of Munson'r Hill, aid used to cover their working parlfos?was kept in play ai intervals to-day. Atone time, when one of the Union pickos killed ono of the robcls who had the temerity to oxpso himself on the turnpiko, the rebels got terribly Vrotlt and ojiencd their battery with great vigor uixm tli empt) buildings at Bailey's Cross Roads, in which they Buppeccd our troops wore sheltered. Thorebels aro throwing up works at a place about three miles'rom Bull's Crossing. The extent of these works 1 am not able to slate, but it Is said the rebel soldiery are hi considerable foree ut that point. During the entire day brisk skirmishing lias boenk pi op belveen the pickets of tho two armies, but with u.. deflnitt result. Tlic Tuion officer captured by the rebels on Sunday last, noir Bailey's Cross Roads, was Captain Fish, of tie Few Y?rk Thirty second regiment, and not the Thirtyfirst rejiment, as previously reported. Private I/ireUzo Cronk, of Company D, of tho Sew York Thirty sighth regiment, who was reported as among t!i#lis of tlic captured near Bailey's Cross Roads on Tuesday last. returned to camp the following day, having esopod from his captors and concealed himself in a tree until an op portuuity offered for him to return to bis own camp.

OF THE POTOMAC AND REVOLUTION IN MARYLAND? ACTION OF TEE MARYLAND REBELS. Under the whip and spur of necessity to do something Ihe rebels arc pushing forward, erecting defensivu work' Immediately in our front, banging away wflli their artil lery at all the houses within our lines that are in reach ol Iheir missiles, merely for tho purpose of distracting at tontion from tho movement of a heavy column towards the Upper Potomac, with a view of crossing over iut Maryland at some point just below the Point of Hoiks. Ihey expect to find fewer of our troops tn tlmtdirectioi than at any ether location, and to be enabled to throw Into Maryland a sufficient force to form a nucleus for its secessionists, ami Inaugurate a civil war there. It is estimated, by men entitled to know, tlint tliersra seventy five thousand of tho rebel army bctweoi Bari'ei'V Ferry and Edwards' Ferry, awaiting an oppor lunity to fwcg a crossing Into Maryland, and willing t tat ihe ch. nr it thereof an insurrection of the muldontentt, that will enable tjr.m to transfer tho conflict to that Slate, and to place Washington bctwocn two rebel irm;os. 1 In tho raoant'me hundreds of Mnrylan 1 secessionists are gathering upon the eastern shore, for the purpose of carrying out the programme Indicated several daj s ago,Of cutting off direct communication between Philadelphia and Baltimore, simultaneously with the passage of the rebels across tho Potomac. Under various excuses, numbers ol men have procured transportation across the bay tn small boats, for the purjioso of joining this expedition. At the little town of FASt"D, In ;Talbot county, these arrivals have amounted to as many as fifty per day. Tho rebels aro in such a condition that they are from the Potomac. Tho resources of this region are exhausted, nnd they cannot much longer subsist their immense force on the Virginia side of the Potomac. They must either avail themselves of the riches of the splendid ngrio.ultural district of Western Maryland, or full back at least upon the Rappahannock. Their desperation will make lively times nkng the Potomac in a few days, and perhaps in a few hours. THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT ANP THE REBELLION, The sensation despatch of tho TrilAtHc, that informa tion had been received from Mr. Adams, our Minister at tho Court of St. James, that England intends forthwith to recognise tho Confederate states, so called, as a separat" jnd independent Power, and which announcement was iuth'.,"ilalive!5 l,enl0(1 in tIli? correspondence in to day's Int/uv ?8 nevertheless believed by some to have cm ilated from a Jirlvato letter of Mr. Adams.

England wants cotton, but she wauls peace more, and does not intend to lend her mighty luflucnco to oxb n 1 r,ud perpetuate human slavery ut tho risk of losing tho Canadas. The letters referred to speak positively on this i>oint, and do not hesitate to gay that tho Canailas will never be a party to any all nipt 11 the ]>art of tho mother country to establish a slave oligarchy on this continent, but will rid themselves of British rule, and strtko hands with the froe nnl loyal*" States in tho Union, In not only putting down the rebellion, hut lit opposing any Interference of the British government.

'GENERAL ROSENCRANS' PI VISION-THE REPORT OE HIS DEFEAT, ETC. PniLAtlEI IllIA, August 30, lKfll. The Baltimore American bus tho following r liable Intelligence regarding the <livieioti of General Rosencrans, obtained from n w< 11 known citizen of Baltimore, who returned yesterday fr>m Northwestern Virginia. The name of this gentleman has boon freely used in Baltimore for tho last few days as having written a letter declaring that there had been a great battle, in which General He S"iirrn"8 was defeated. Tito gentleman snvs Ihnt ?p to tho afternoon of the 27th inst. General Rosencrans was not only alive and well, but was quietly transacting his im|>ortant functions at his headquarters. No information whatever was understood to have been received at headquarters. News of the affair of Colonel Tyler near Summorsvihc had been received, but of no other action beyond an occasional contact of pickets or scouts. Although it was not known exactly where tho forces of General Rosencrans were posted, or their numbers, it was evident that the Genera! was under ro special alarm in regard to them. It is said that his scouts had report od that the main body of the rebel forces, believed to be commanded by General I,eo, and from seven to eight thousand strung, was encamped 011 a larjr<"> plain, within four or six mile# only of tin' encampment of Colonel Roy nobis, who is supposed to have with him the largest portion-of General Rosencrans' troopg. It wa? he Moved that no att.uk would bo made by either of the rebel force# commanded by General I/'C or General Wl.-o, !tnloF? they could find a a trolling detachment to encounter, rh in the case of Colonel Tyler, of the Seventh Ohio regiment, near St mnierrvllle. Various acoounts arc given of the forces of Genera's Lee Wise and Floyd, but no aecurato information seems to bo possessed outside of General Rosencrutis' own stair. Opinions differ very much among military men and others in West, rn Virginia as to tho probability of anything lilco a general engagement hot we' n the respective armies In that guar ter. Every confldeiice seems to he ret* scd in the alntity of General Rosencrang to maintain himself against any forces likely to be spared to attack him. He has excellent aidg and officers to support him. who leave doubtless helped him iu providing an oifecUvo army. THE FIGHT AT SUMMERS VILLE, VA. CrE'TUffP, August .10,1861.

Surveyor Cotton publishes a card threatening to seize all wagons, vehicles, stenmboats and transporting articles for aiding the rebellion after September 1. A special despatch from Richmond, dated 27tli Inst., to the N'ashvillo I'nion an l jtrm 'ican, says a large numb r of prominent Kontuckians state that the fooling of resistance to Lincoln's government in Kentucky is unmis'akeably on tho increase. Vumerous letters from Kentucky indicate the same feeling. Tho Richmond Examiner of the 26th says the Confederate Congress has decided to repeal the law establishing port of entry, and throw all tho Southern on-t open to foreign commerce, providing that vessels which run tho blockade into shore Inlets shall pay tho Confederate Unties nt the port tVWBt tjjeir landing. There is a dissension In thd Congress id reference to confiscation. Some advocate the confiscation of all Yttukeo property in the South, and othors favor a sequestration ict, j Congress has appropriated $600,000 for a floating flotilla for the defence of New Orleans, and $160,000 for two iron clad boats for tho defence of tho Mississippi river and tho city of Memphis. Tho Charleston Courier says that Jame3 L. Orr has raised au Independent regiment for the war. He is eagerly awaiting marching orders. The Memphis Ajyval says that Lincoln refuses to disband his cain|)s in Kentucky, an 1 ins.sta that tho Confodo rate forces shall advance to meet the foe, instead of wait big his intrusion on Tennessee soil. The Memphis Avalanche says tho schooner Adelino, with th eo former I'uion army and navy officers on board, was brought to by a United States man-of-war, but, taking ad vantage of a squall, got iuto Savannah, with a cargo of Culfeo, fruit and lead. The correspondent of tho Huntsville (Ala.) Advocate. tolls the planters to give tho negroes more molasses and rice, *ohd leas bacon. This plan would diminish the consumption of bacon two and a quarter million pounds weekly in the Southern confederacy. i'lie Memphis Avalanche congratulates its readers that no more l. 'tvrs are to go North, ami hopes interdiction of ill intercourse1 between the two sections will ho complete aid everlasting. FROM FO?TKI*S MONROE. iUt-rikiOKE, August 30, 1881.

Without discussing tho merits or demerits of the First regiment l'iro //waves, will you allow me to exnross through tho columns of the Hwiaui an opinion which I have arrived at alter a thorough investigation of tho matter? First, tho regiment was very badly ollicored,ns far as military Knowledge was concernOd, which was the main cause of their action on the battle held. Knowing the temper and dispos'tion of the members of the New York Fire Department well, as i do, f spe&K knowingly when I say roost unlr sttirtingly they must not t"' tampered With or abused. Th"y are sensitive to thd degree, and canno*, nor will they, brock anything that seems like tyranny. There are men in this city now, who, j if their military knowledge whs sufllcicnt, could take tiiat body of men, and they would follow through fire and I hired, death and carnage. They do not know <? Il?? 1 l.rt ....... T U......O nC .......i.i ... i let tlrose Zouaves go hungry nor ill clad, an I If, through P>rco of circumstances, provisions were short, lhey would not grumble, so long as all, both officers and men, fared alike. I have had many an illustration of that at l 'ng and tedious workli g at (Ires In this city. Who ever heard of the officer of a fir * company in "New York leaving his men at work at a lire and sneaking off" to a restaurant to get something to rat or drink? As near as 1 can find out?and 1 have It from some of the roost intelligent of the men?the officers ware well fed and the men were left to shift for th uischvs, with ot.0 or two exceptions. It will be perfectly useless to reorganize the regiment unless officers arc uUv'^A III command who know their wants, feelings and <'esii'"8, and will listen and attend to Hu m. As I remarked before, there are men in tills city, f their know id go of nv'ilnry manoeuvring would allow it, who could take hold of th?' regiment, and the world has n> vcr -eon such heroism as they would display. Their coin age is bcyomi the shadow of a do id. Their endurance has b. u 11 ven on raoro tfi m one occasion In this city.
