It MMru;, however, that the rebels hesitate to make tbe ur ?auH they evidently contcmplato. TUny llnd oar liues bo admirably prepared fur any attack, at every point, that it would be fch'XT miulnesg to make tbe attempt, which -would Inevitably be repulsed, and prove to thou irretrievably disastrous. Hio retreat of our army from Bull run only incited greater activity in every department of tbe government, and a stronger dctermiuati' n on , \ the part of tho i>eople of tho loyal States to xupport evory ?i?irt of the administration to m?t -**? ? - .uucu!?u. General McClellan is fully prepared to follow It up. General Beauregard's army defeated and - cattercd, tho rebel leaders would find uo ?th?r to tako its place, and thn'.r traitorous enterprise 'would be speodily crushcd out. relay is almost ns ruin- | ous to them an would bo a defeat. With five thousand of their array of the Potomac iu fioffitaia, infectious ns-ases raging in all their camps, their troops filled with approbMistoiroi'attacks by tho Union lorccs upon their hemes, they will not tony he able to maintain the position they ha\e assumed immediately in front of our lines, ami will toon 1) come as 111 prepared to resist an attack a.s they are now to make one. For several days they have tieen fooling along our line tora w'alc place, where they may cross the Potonwc into Maryland; but nouo has been found. In the mean lime, they watch closely every mov?ment on our side. A roccncoipsance in force was made last nlglit of 11 tho country in the vicinity of the Chain Bridge. Evory movement of tho reconnoitorinfi party was signalized by rockets in tho direction of tho rebel timet, but it was ascertained that they had not chungod the positions heretofore reported. They are erecting new earthworks on the Leesburg road, about sevon miles from tho Chain Bridge. The energy and ability of Ceo. HcClellau are plainly Manifested in the superior ollkbac.y And discipline of his whole army. Between eight and nine o'clock uu* morning the rebels within the fortifications at Munscn's Heights threw seven or eight.shi'ils towards the Union pickets near Bailey's Qrow Roads, a di.-tanco ef about one mile, without 4olng any damage, or causing injury to life or limb. The shells were of a new pattern and did not explode, owing to tho Imperfect manner in which they were loaded. lieutenant Hahlpren, of tba navy, w!x> was in the vicinity of .where one of tho rebel sheila. ? truck, secured It Jor .presentation to his tether, Captain Dahlgrcn, Chief ef the Naval Ordnance Department. Another one was sent to Brigadier General Richardson. "Tue firing was heard distinctly in Washinglon, and the .rapidity with which the discharge'were made Impressed every one with tho Idea that tho long . npocted attack on Washington bad. commenced. The shells wore thrown from a masked battery ut the base of Hanson's Hill,.near Munson's house. One of tho Union pickets was conecaiod in tho bushes afow sods from tho rebel battery wher. the firing took place.

OPERATIONS OP TtlK NAVY DEPARTMENT?FAVORABLE OPINIONS OK Til* BEIU'.O's WffOMS? 8BCKETARY WELLES' CA1IK OV THE GOVERNMENT VB8SKLB, KTC., ETO. Tho story mentioned in tn-day's IIkkald alKiut Secretary Welles having written to his brothw-lB-law, George f>. Morgan, for ten thousand horses to su)>ply the twenty new gmiboata of nve hundred horse power each, ordered by government, is, we are told, pronounced by Acting Secretary Fox inaccurate an retried. It does not appear Utat tliere wad any contract actually entered into for the horses; while tho anxiety as to whero so many could be got on short notice, to say nothing of the difUotilly of g'-llluj; hay and oats to feed them, wus very natural. Thoro is now a spectacle witnessed every time you cross one of the creeks between Baltimore and Philadelphia, of a ferry boat lying idlo for tho wuut of only one or two horses to operate the i>addlc wheels. The savage articles in the Tribune and Evening J'ost, denouncing Commodore .St ring ham and lioneral Butler for visiting their families, aro understood here for just what they aro?indirect and insidious attacks upon Secretary Welles for going home to Hartford to pass a week or two. Everybody knows here that this Is what they uieun, and nothing else. But the tcpublic sufl'crsno detriment from the absence of Mr. Wollos. The business of his department goes on just as well when ho Is away as when he is here. Oqo would think his age, at least, might shield him from riennuciation. Very few men llvo to be us old as he is, and those that do ought to be respected. There has beon nothing more ungenerous than the censure of Secretary Welles for not sending reinforce, moots sooner to our garrison left at Kurt Uatteras. Mr. Welles is too experienced a man to be caught in such a trap. He has been a close observer of public affairs ever since the beginning of the present century, and be believes that men's lives should not be risked in warthat is, not many of thorn, nis Idea is, if 1 understand It, that tlio men left at Uatteras Inlet were sufficient, tf they should succeed in continuing to h?ld It, for the present; while, If they are to be massacred or taken prisoners, the lees there are of them the belter. ]f it shouid turn out that they are perfectly safe, Just as soon as that la known to be the case, others will be sent down tliero with them, and additional i*< 1' ?ns. The same course of reasoniug applies with equal ?%otscy to the iucrenso of tho navy, about which the i'otl and tho Tribune exhibit such indecont haste. What prudent merchant feels like sending Ills ships to sea when the water* swarm ho thick I with i>rlvatecrs that t.hn insurance companies charge four per cent extra, war rhk? It must be steadily borno in mind that tho ships belonging to the United States government arc put into tho hands of Secretary Welles us a sacred public trust, and that ho is responsible for their safo keeping, as well as having them properly Sumt't-T alfi?aV-w'otfiSrlTof"lie worpYof tGc privateers run aground, like the Jed. Davis, or get wrecked, ?s they are very liable to when the equinoctial storms come on. and you will sec that Secretary Wclh s will not bo lwblndhand In getting ships enough under weigh. Do not forget (hat uot one of tlio seventy odd ships recently captured by Ihe pirates belonged to the government, a fact which will be a standing monument to the prudonco of Socretarj' Welles for some timo to come. Your defence of Mr. Oeorge D. Morgan is another handsome thing, for which Mr. Assistant (noil Acting) Secretary Vox, will accord you great credit. Iam told that it is spoken of in sporting circles as a line exhibition of the manly art. Yon, however, fail to do Mr. Morgan full justice. 1 am informed that ho hegau by charging Ovo per cent commirsian. Some captious New York merchants, who were rich enough to have stood such a charge without grumbling, remonstrated against Uiia. Mr. Morgan Is a patriot, and also a brother-in-law of Mr. Welles. Tho one fact forbnde his abandoning 1ho service of Us country, as the other did his deserting tho Navy Department. So he generously reduced his corn missions to per cent. If, at that rate, he has ntaJe $150,000,1 ir lias given to the government (130,000, which he niifeht have made by charging five per cent. What, ever Mr. Morgan has done has been performed purely from public consideration, and without any scltish motives w hatever. Ho is far hotter qualified to buy ships than any other merchant In New York, besides doing it cheaper; moreover, ho Is ttie only man who has the nuthority from the Navy Deportment. Mr. Morgan lias been something of a sufferer on aocount of this bu sinet's. At 118 commencement he was in company with your excellent governor, E. D. Morgan, who, fearing it would bring Rome odium on the house, dlssolvod the firm. lie is ttot an ambitious man; and, I believe, b Tore this chnuce offered, was disposed to serve the government in some bumble capacity, connected, tf I mistake not, with tho customs. In addition to this it may not be im" proper to remark that ho recently risked the lives of bis two sons ana a descendant of old Mr. WelW, by exposure to the pirates, having sent tliem on en excursion, in a government vessel, down to Fortress Monroe, with no compensation but their expenses.

To facilitate the prompt payment of tWtroops, a preference has been given at tho Treasury to requisitions of Paymasters; but it has been discovered tfint tho delay in these payments is almost invariably attributable exclusively to tho negligence or ignorance of company or rcgi. mental officers in preparing pay rolls, and hereafter all requisitions wiM l>e attended lo in regular order as llicy re received.

A detachment or tho Harris Liuht Cavalry, CdWel Man^fleld, arrived-hero at Dvo o'clock this afternoon, after sad experience* aiul narrow escapes from tho diabolical trcochery of fiendish railroud engineers by tho way. Tb? detachment consisted of three hundred men and fifty-one horses, under command of Lieut<.>nuiit Colonel Kiltiatrlck. The rest of tho regiment was already here. Colonel Kilpatrick left New York at foor P. M. on Saturday, proceed lug by way of tho New Jersey Central Kal!road to Easton, nod the Reading and Lebanon Valley Rail ioad.4 to Hurrisburg, where he arrived at six o'clock on I tlio car.* upou ihe trai k nt ttW 'ho train, until eleven o'clock, Col. kilpatrick was searching lor some officer of the road to furni.sh nn en^lro lo toko the train across tho rlror to tho depot of tlic Northern Central rood, leading to Baltimore. At hist lie cent m parly of his men to the engine house, with < rders to (Ire up ono of the locomotives of the I'orninylvania Railroad, and place it in charge of an < n/rlnccr, who bi longed to ono of bis companies. His v ai rc.-istod by the railroad employes,and ho accosted by the Assistant Superintendent, Samuel J). Young> I who demanded lo know if Col. Kilpatrick intended to fake the engine by force. He replied that ho was under orders to tako hid men to Washington, and intended to do en, for which purpose he must have a locomotive, und ho intended to take one Uy force if necessary, and that ho should tnko Iho Assistant Superintendent along w.th it, tl<*d and gigged, if sueh treatment was requisite. I'pon this exhibition of determination to go ahead the superintendent promised to^provlde an engine and engineer. This was dually dine. Upon arriving at the depot of the Northern Central Road no train-was ready, and to avoid a repetition of the experiences at the other depot, and further detHy,aa his men were without food, Colonel' Kilpatrick concluded to como on to Bultlmore with the (rain ho bad, and directed the engineer accordingly. Tliey proceeded rarely, at arete of i bout eight mile* an hour, until within four miles of Cockeysvillc, when the engineer put on the steam, and began to run the train at a fearful speed. Co). Filrpatrick and his wife, and ?niofit of the officers were In the lOBt car. The brakesman left his rest and camo into the car declaring that be could ?* ?tkn ftralfA wtiMil Iho train wa? rfaaVtlno such a speed. In going around a s Harp curve,as noon aa the engine reached the straight road, the steam wax suddenly let on, fearfully increasing the rate of Bpecd. Lieut. Lyon, nephew of the late Geo. Lyon, volunteered to man the brake of th e last car. Aided by Sergeants McDonald and Kuller, and one of the privates, he had managed to put down the brake, when the four cars Immediately in front of It were violently thrown from ?ho track, and the breaking of the coupling or the last car let it escape tlio khuio fate. Lieutenant Lyon and feergoants McDonald and Fuller and the private, who wure manning til's brakes, were Instai t!y killed. They had gallantly ex|>osed themselves to danger, and lost their lives, but sovi'd those of tho occupants of the hut car. As toon as the cars were thrown off1, tho engineer detavhed tlio locomotive and tender frc.n the train, and started ahead, exclaiming " Thore, your i>?d d?d train In a wreck, nnrt 1 hope the whole party Is killed." Col Kllpatrick promptly gave ordeas tor his arrest, an<l some of tho men started after him, and endeavored by hurling stones to knock him off the engine. Tho fireman hesldo him it was tliuH knocked insensible, and fell frim the oar, but the engineer at that time male his escape. Finding in the command an exdort telegraph operator. Colonel Kilpatrick had the wires cut, and tho ends burnished, and a message sent to Central Hx, at Baltimore. informing him of tho occurrcnrc, and requesting aid and tho arrest of the fugitive engln er. This message of course went m both directions. It was promptly responded to by General Dix. An extra train was sent out from Baltimore, wjtb orders to awest the engineer. 'When he was met he ilenl 'd that any accident hud occurred, and profesned to be only In charge of a detached engln". He was, however, arrested. He had already cut the wires, but not until after the message had beerr sent. Upon his arrival at Ox koysville he had a whispered conversation with tho t.digraph sperator, from whom ho learned thut the message had gono before the wire wan out. It Is reported that when the Intelligence reached liarrHeirg, Assistant Superintendent Young expressed gratlfloat ion at the result, and hoped that Colonel K:'put rick was ainoug the killed. He was promptly arrested. In addition to the four killed instantly, three were ro | badly wounded that they have since died.
