The military aspect of things ycHterday, and eg|>o<:ially the sharp fight at Lewirisvillc, in which our troops showed their Buporiority, Impressed every ono here with the belief tliat a general engagement bettfeon tfie contending forces would commcnco to day. But the events of to. day havo dispelled this idoa.4 Military affairs were nover more quiet over the river tpan during the day. The usua1 amount of skirmishing continues between the pickets o^ buth sides. Mutters all along tbo I'nion line remain in ltatu quoThe firing in the direction of the Chain Bridge this morning was from artillery (tractice. Everything has been remarkably quiet in the neigh' borhood of Bailey's and Ball's Cross Roads to day. The residence of Mr. Ball, to the right of Ball's Cross Roads, is alternately occupied by our ,pickets and those of the rebels, ours during the day, and theirs at night. General McClellan went over the Long Bridge this afternoon, on a tour of inspection Into Virginia. He vteit^ Fort Albany first, and then dlrectod his oourse north to' wards the Chain Bridge. ADDITIONAL PARTICULARS OF THE FIOI1T AT LEWIX8VILLE. General McClellan's despatch to the ijserretary of War Is very brief. IIo merely gays that Gcii. Smith made a reconnoissance with 2,000 men to I/iwjuBvillo, remained thoro several hours aDd completed their examination of the ground. When the work was completed and the command bad started back, the enemy opened fire with she]), by which two men were killed and threo wonnded. Griffin's battery, ho says, silenced that of tho enemy, and our men came back in perfect order and excellent spirits. The men behaved most admirably under the Ore. He concludes by remarking, "We shall have no more Bull run utfaira." The following is the official report of the Important reconnolKanco which took placo from the Union encamp* ment noar the Chain Bridge:? Cutp Advakcb. V*., Sept. 11,1881. The Sevonty-ninth regiment of Highlanders, New York State Militia, ordered on the special reconnoisance in tho direction of Kail's (Jiurch, left camp at one o'clock A. M. Sept. 10. and procoodod to the placo designated, through tho various bypathn, without disturbing the enemy's pickets, and arrived there at daybreak. The command wa? dirlded Into twe wings to guard the approach of the enemy. Sc on at tor the men had boen posted firing was hoard in the dlr.ctwo of Lewlnsville, and a lx>dy of cavalry came from the direction of Fall's Charch, and when endeavoring to pa>? where we were posted our men were ordered to fire, which thoy did, aauuing tho enemy to retreat. Previous to Oietr retreating, which was caused by a well directed fire from tho left wing, under command of Captain John Falconer, the enemy tired on us, killing one, private John Itownie, of the HtgliUi company. At the samo time tho right wtngcaptured a prisoner, who was wounded, and who had on when taptared a Major's slioulder straps. His name is But>fc?, of Colonel btuwart'a cavalry regiment. Having sucoeRsfally accomplished the mission we were ordered on?<he prevent ion of the pickets at Lewlnsville being reinforced?nod tho enemy having retroated, and the alarm being aennded in all the enemy's camps in the .i.QOfw. fMJtHH'MI, HUH ?U"M Vl'U IU C? III [ > by way of lAi\gley at half-past ten o'clock A. II. The lowest estimate of the enemy'6 loss Is four kilted, two wounded and oo* prisoner. Much of the success of the expedition is owing to tho ex'rUous of our guide, Mr. biige. Lieutenant Alexandnr Gruliam.of Uie Kighth company, * was conspicuous far his ixwlncsp and bravery during tho engagement.

It will bo remembered that a Mr. W. T. Woods, who figured as tho avant courier of President 1 .Incoin in his progress to1 Wellington last February, was lately rejected by the Senntn of tho United States for tlio responsible office of Commissioner of Public Buildings. It appears dial tue unicceucnts 01 noons were not niiogemer satisfactory, nn-1 his rejection was concurred in fully by tho President. Woods wa8,T^owe9er, <1e?;iT? dejected by his mortifying repulse. Ho Implored tho President for the sake of bis family to reappoint him for a month only, that he might have tho credit of resigning. Tho President, good naturodly, consented to this strange rf<yicst, and at tho end of the month Woods was, accordingly, desired to send in his resignation. Since then, we are sorry to learn that Wo.ids' conduct in Washington has been so strange that the notion begins to be entertained that his common sens# has been nearly exhausted. * *?,REDUCTION OF POBTAOF.

Jufoutm to Htke the field?Affairs on the Lower Potomac? What . will b* the Results nf the Friendly Attitude qf Russia, <fc. Several statements have been published purporting to givo an account of tho number of rebel troops now in the flcld. They range in the aggregate from 100,000 to 200,000 men, but ore all based upon guess work, and u[>on the fatal habit of underrating the enemy's strength. On the 21st of June, just a month before the battle of Bull run, the Hkrald contained a statement fhowing that the rebel forces in that vicinity amounted to W),0S0 well armed and well disciplined men. Tho statement wa< everyj wbero derided and pronounced exaggerated. The " Oa, ward to P.ichmond" papers, up to the middle or July, asserted that tho rebel forces did not amount to over 20,000 men. and that they were ilJ-armed, iil-fed and illclothod. The battle was fought, aud it was then seen that the Hfjui d'b statement was correct. 1 have prepared tlie fel wing statement of the prcsent strength and position of tho rebel forces from purely original sources, and from data that I hayo been collecting for the last live weeks.

If tho statements In my letter of September 7 In rej;ar,i to tho position of thu rebel forces between Loeaburg and the Chain ltrtd.;G noecli>d any cunftruuution, it is fur' uished in tho fuot that rockets are now sent up every nl;;ht alouj tho whole rebel lino, beginning above I'rospect 11111, at a polut about right miles above lhe Chain Bridge, Ihonce to thol.- batteries u?-tir the f'hain Bridge, tlioneo f> their encampments near Mount Olivo Church, thence to Pull's Cross Roads, Mumoq'b 1 Bailey's Crows Rami, and to their lntrenchments near Alexandria. What thu object of these signal rockets is, is yet Invoivod In mystery. It may !m> merely export, mental, in order to prepare tho commanders of tho various corps fo a simultaneous night movement. But, what-. ever in u b the object of tbe llMk. J? scientific mm* nor In which Uioy arc in ide Indicates that the prepara. tiooa of the relsils aro nea.'ly completed, and that they tiro about ready for whatever demonstration they have iu view.

Tiny consist of tho regiments at mora ted lu niy letter of the * ttli, and Dumber 25,000 men. It is reported to day that Gen. Albert S. Johnston was at Manassas ou Sunday, and that ho will have com man! of the troops above referred to. It Is well knowa that this Gen. Johnston has been expert el at Richmoud for & torn; time, and it may bo that the great movement bt'focp Washington bus been delayed for Ida arrival. But tho probability Is ho will bo ordered to the chief ootn. i maud )f tho rebels in*(ho Miss.M>lppl Valley. Froui an o'.Ucer of ono of tho strainers that ply cm. stantly b'jtwoon the Navy Yard and tho moathof tho Potomac 1 learn some interesting faets iu rogaril to tho present condition of affiilrs down tho river. Tho rebel battese on tho Virginia aht?, that aro known to e\ist, ' stretct, in almost an unbroken line, from the mouth of the OOCoip:an river to Mathias 1'otat. ltayiitnj this point no batten a aro certainly known to cxi.-t, though, in all prob ikilily, they ojtvrid niueh further down. The most formidable batteries, so far as experience has mailo theia kn.nvs, aro those at the mouth of Aqilia creek (which woro lit d dowu ou the Hkii.u.d map of May 21), at Marl bon U(;h l'ohit, at Cockpit I'oint, at Quuuticocreek, at Potomac crock, at a clump of trees between Fouek'rt landing and Uoyd'e Hole, and at Mathias Polut.

It is not (oo much to say that it Is worth a battle gained to us. The mc.nbers of the Cabinet and all the 1 ireigu ministers undorstand this completely; and it would do you good to see tlie sparkle in Mr. Seward's eye, and tho annoyed expression that frequently crossed 1/ird Lyons' face, in spite of his diplomatic caution. The frank and hearty sympathy thus expressed by one of th* moi t powerful nionarolts of Kurn[>o for the stability and p'-rmiuienceof otir natlona I government is Justly regarded j by the administration ;<s an indicatlou of what the courso j of Riffcsla will bo If Kngland and France eurry out the | Intentions that they have already too plainly expressed. ! There Is little doubt In the minds of the member# of the | administration th it Kngland ami Franco will both ro' "g- j nlzo the Southern confederacy < u the lirst pUuslblo pretext. Hut If this course on tliair part should involve us ! in a war with thi-m, then we can count upon the aid of I Russia. Tho Czar has a loug account to settle with "tho | Allies," aud ho would want no better opportunity than that. Russia has always beou friendly to t io united \ states,but Kngland has always really bated tis, aud would ] rejoico in our overthrow. Tho Idea that Kngland will fol- | low the lead of Russia in expressing sympathy with our government is preposterous. It Is much more likely to Niupposo that she will take the opposite course. Hut with Russia at our back we can defy both France and Kngl.uid. THE REBEL AUMY ON THE POTOMAC. [Itjohmotid corresp mdence Savannah Mews, Aug. U'.l The chief topic of conversation hero Is the it activity of tho army. Much criticism h is been passed op n Hen.. lieaiiregard and those who aro believed to duect tho ' movements of the army, mure particularly rei'jiocting 1 his failure to occupy or destroy Alexandria and Washington City.

Since tho 21st July many circumstances have combined to keep our troops in a stationary position. Rain has fallen in great quantities nnd almost incessantly, rendering the roads Impassable for heavy wagon transportation, and the marching of large bodies of troops, and there lias been a groat deal of sickness among our soldiers'?probably twenty per cent are at this time unfit for duty. Our generals, however, have been strengthened by new accessions almost every day, and the railroads continuo totransjiort regiment after regiment. [Manassas correspondence of Charleston Mercury.] Uanahkas, August 29,1861. In oompany with General Walker, of Georgia, who hag been ordered on here from Ponsacola, and Captain Hartstein, now one of his volunteer aids,) mode a pleasant visit to some of the neighboring camps, nnd to Generals Johnston and Beauregard this morning. General Johnston has headquarters near the Junction, about a riiile boyond Beauregard, In a comfortablo and prettily situated j farmhouse. Ho is about fifty years of age. His hair, originally very dark, is becoming streaked with silver, and the lines of his face are deeply markod. Of tall and commanding ap\>earanci', with a tinely cut and exproaslvo face, a llrm month and chin, adorned with a stiff, closely cut mustache and imperial, easy and oordial in his manners, he is one of the-most attractive leaders I havo mot, and is calculated, I should think, to make an acceptable and popular as well as ublocemmanderforour volunteers. Major Kh( tt, of our city, is Mding on his staff. General Beauregard brought out li'.s maps for us, nnd went over the general plan and details of the battle of tho 2lst. If 1ms original intent ion had been carried out of advancing his right wing on Centrevillo from Union Mills, I them can be no doubt that tbo enemy would eith"r have i been annihilated or compelled to hurrendur. When tho oftlcia! report is publ:tdied much tluit is at present idunderstood or misinterpreted will be cleared up, and I do not think the record will prove any more flattering to Uio Yankoes than Russell's letter. It is almost Inconceivable how they could have blundered ntt tliey did, and tiiu cowardice of their troops was fairly matched by the incom|>etoi)ce of their officers. J am afraid, though, that the lebbou has boon -thrown away, and thai under the skilful l?.adervhip of MoClellan, it will require larger forces and harder fighting to whip them next time. Tho reports brought to tho Mar turu out to be correct. 1'ur several days pant there has been active akirraishmg up by Fall's Church, where our advanced picket i;uard is stntijned; and to day tbo enemy made a rcconnoifsaneo la force. Thoy were repelled, however, by Colonel Stewart, af the Virginia Cava! r y,sopportsd V.y a ragiui'jnt arid some guns from (ieueial Longntroct's brigade. The ennoij'H loss is said to bo severe; ours consisted of only one lieutenant and four privates wounded. K is alsocxpected that General Jones will makea divertissement to-day, by way of keeping Uncle Sam's army stirred up: and if 'tilings titfu ofct as rh"V ought to, It is i lately to givotha federal H$ow) on entertainment that v they little expect, and will xidl c?e U) partake Of again jt> a hurry. .The YaVkc^ army ke*ps moving about from point ta : i poih I like a herd of frightened dw. There can bo no' j douty that they are ver? much exercised by our move- ' mentifc they cannot find out exactly what we mean. and ; arc afraW in make any extended ret, Whcue EIIA ] verthey attempt tills they aro checked, and the annoyance to which their picket lx continually nut jccUM mikes them careful not to th"U?t It out too fur. You may expact to hour daily ll^'htinc up here now, anil It would lint surprise mo it an altacK of aone strength wan mado by them t>n tho A<(ula Orock and Mathinx Point batteries. Our men, In turn, are ho-oming Impatient; tho winter Is approaching and we might at well take up our wlute.r quarters iu Washington uh any wliere elite.

Wo found him occupying a strongly entrenched position, covered by a forest too dense to admit lis being seen at a distance of throe hnn drcd yards. His force woe Ave regiments, besides tte . one driven in. lie had probably sixteen pieced of artillery. At throe o'clock we began a strong reonnnowanee, which proceeded to such length we were about to assault the position on the (lank and front, when night coming on, and our troops being completely exhausted, I drew them out of the woods and (tested them in the order of buttle behind ridges immediately In front of the enemy's position, where they rested on their arms till morning.

Floyd's army?6,000 strong, with sixteen field pieces, intrenched in a powerful position, on the top of a mountain at Cannix Ferry, on tl? west side of Oanley river. The rear and extremo of Loth flanks were inaccos We. The front was masked with heavy forests and * close Jungle. Colonel I.ytie's Ohio Tooth regiment of General Benham ;h brigade was in advance, and drove a strong detachment of tbo enemy oat of camp this side of tbe position,, the *110 of which was unknown. Shortly afterwards bit scouts, consisting of four companies, suddonly discovered themselvos in the face of a parapet battery, sndalong lino of palisades for riflemen, when the battlo opened flcrcply. Tbo remainder of tbo Tentb and Thirteenth Ohio wore brought into action successively by Genoral Ik'iiham, and the Twelfth afterwards by Captain IlarteolT, whose object was an arm0<1 rcconnoissanco.
