IJNCOLN. wmm MAIN BODY or TUB REBKI. ARMY AT MANAHPA.1? A BATTLE NOT ANTICIPATED BEPOUK MONDAY MORNING. balloon reoonnoissance to-day dovelopos the fact that the body of the enemy that advanced last night fell back behind Munion's bill; that there aro also largo camps of rebels at Contrevillo and Fairfax Court House, and that Che main body of the rebel army has fallon back to Manassas and Is now encamped there. the enemy cannot move forward in sufficient foroe to five battle earlier than Hen day morning, judging from Che developemcnts made to-day. there la no doubt that the enemy Is making an effort to persuade our forces out of tboir Intrencbmeuts, fearing CO attack ue, but preferring to be allocked, so that they aan fall back behind their masked batteries again, a la bub run. the enemy withdrew this morning from before our IkM rather more hastily than they came upon them last ?*bt. The opinion of our experienced officers is that the enemy did not like the appearance of our works. They re not masked, but present a bold front. Of course the precipitate return of the enemy is a subject of spoculalatkm. Some of our military chieftains assort that be only dashed down upon our tines for a feint, to attract the attention of Usn. McClellan away from a more formidable demonstration In the direction of Great Falls or Edwards' Jerry. Others tblnlc that the rebels are breaking up their entire camp between here and Manassas, and mado a movement forward to engage our attention while I hoy remove their cannon towards Richmond and destroy their earthworks at Manassas. This latter opinion Is entertained by very few. The general belief is that the enemy inteuda to give battle somewhere upon our line withiu garty-eight hours. THB IlKBRh ADVAXCR YESTERDAY. The sudden approach of a large body of the rebels on -aw lines yesterday was not tlie harbinger of an immediate battle to-day, as was generally anticipated. There is no doubt that the enemy uro in sotno force mlnnff mts 1 in no ami tho n?rtnm < t r'? ? ?eo our pickets may at an early day be followed ,%f a general attack on the dofcncts of Washington. The attack on our plekcts yesterday was by a Jfcody of twelve hundred rebels, divided Into proper diKrleionsof cavalry, artillery?four pieces?and infantry, (fbls robei force started from FaU'?

They proceeded in quick time along the of our line of pickets, driving them into camp, and keeping UP * desultory Are with their artillery. The enemy 's Vtillery were seen to cross a Held In full view of tbo Union t.'Au'P8 CMr Iho Chain Bridge, proceeding in the direction of (.'rent Falls. An the enemy proceeded they committed vari0"8 acts of vandalism, burning the houses, barus and corn .cribs of nil those people suspected of being devoted to tbi* Union.

BALLOON UCONNOISSANCB 0? BRIOADKR QBNCBAL SMITH AND PROrKSSOR LOWS. Professor I owe end Brigadier General Smith made an aerial reconnotesance to-duy, on the Virginia ride of the Chain Bridge. The General made close observation of the surrounding country, and obtained the exact position of the enemy near our linos. Professor Lowe corroborates all that portion of this despatch relative to the rebel fore* that at Sacked our lines yesterday. Hosays he saw twelve hundred men and four pieces of cannon moving out of Fell's Church, and reported the Botne to headquarters. PMftUCCTlON or PROPERTY BY THR RKCONNOITXRINO pones OP THtt KEBEI.B.

They drove in our pickets to wltbin half a mile of tbe Roada, so as to get p ssesslon of a bouse occupied by a colored man named Lem Bennett, which tbey burnt to tbe ground. Ben" nett and bis wife were captured two weeks ago and taken South. Tbe names of those who bad suf. fered by the torch of the enemy are Basil nail, whose bouse Is located a mile and a quarter to the rlgbt of the Croca Roads. Every thing peilfcbablc belonging to bim wsa destroyed, excepting six cows which our troops snc oeded In bringing away this morning.

KKOIMKMTB UNDER ARMS. Nearly all tiie regiments in the neighborhood of Arlington Heights and tho Chain Bridge woro out wider arms during all lafll night. THE ARMY. Captain Thaddeus P. Mott, of New York, has or will receive, in a few days, authority to enlist a full regl ment of artillory for garrison and field purposes. Captain Moil is a young Now Yorker, son of Dr. Valentine Mott, and as an artillerist has no superior cither for coursgo or skill. His battery has boeu variously engaged with the enemy several times within tho past week, and on every occasion ho has received the commendation of his commanding G neral. Captain James McMahtn's and Cuptain Dielii's batteries, of tho Fourth New York State Artillery, will be invited to Join Captain Mott's new rig ment. To-day the Massachusetts Fourteenth infantry rdglment of volunteers, Colonel Green, commanding, was deta iled from Richardson's brigade and assigned to special duty, and will bo hereafter known as a regiment of artillery. ' TTre men have devoted themselves to the exerciso of the guns since they have been stationed at Fort Albany, and have attracted the attention of General UcClcllanto a degree warranting the promotion mentioned. This is consi iered a high compliment to tho officers and men of the regiment. At evening parndo this afternoon the men were greatly dellgntca upon learning me news. The IJncoIn Cavalry, cnmi>?sed of two companies from Pennsylvania, one from U.chlgon, and uioe from New York, Is now thoroughly organized, the field and staff officers having been sworn In, as follows:?Colonel McKeynolds, Lieutenant Colonel Yon Schlkfues, formerly of tho Prussian army ; Majors?C. 11.

Leave of &bs <noc has been granted Second lieutenant Wears, Ninth Infantry, to enable him to accept tho position of lieutenant Colonel of the First regiment of Volunteers, known as Sharpshooters. It is the design of the General in command to establish in this city a camp of instruction, in which to perfect the recruits in skirmish and infantry drill. Major Bayard, late of Van Alen's cavalry, has boen appointed to command ono of the .Pennsylvania reserve regiments. The artillery practice is dally continued at the forts. ADJOURNMENT OF THE COURT OK INQUIRY IN TOE CASK OF COL. MILES. Tlie Court of Inquiry in the case of Col. P. S. Miles, Second Infautry, has boen adjourned by Major General Mi Clellan uutil further orders?i. e., indefinitely. This Is a peculiar hardship to Oil. Miles, if not a manifest injustice. The prosecution had closed. Of course all its evl dcnco ii on record. But flvo witnesses for the defence had heen examined when the court wna adjourned until the 16th inst. Witnesses from every sertieu of the country?clviliaus, Scnatora and members of Congress, beside army and volunteer officers?were present to give evidence In favor of Col. Miles, when again the exigencies ef tho servlco require a further postponement. MOKE TROOPS FROM PENNSYLVANIA. Gov. Curt in, since his return from hero to Ilarrlsburg,has entered upon his duties with renewed spirit. He expects to be able to send forward six thousand additional troops next week. One of tho regiments is undor command of Col. Kni|>e, tho celebrated rifle shot. K. C.

The "Confederate State" thieves are now engaged In the laudable enterprise of using our old l*ost Office stamp, which encloses the name of the place where and date when the letter is deposited.

BULLING UA.KLR, Auditor. To TBB PREPARATION OF TREASURY NOTR8. The Treasury presented an anltuatea sceno on Tuesday night. Over two hundred clerks wore en engaged In cutting and trimming demand uotcs> of tho denominations of five, ten and twenty dollars. Those were all engaged in one king room of tho new Treasury extension, In which are placed twenty tables, su|>plicd with ton pair of shears each. Every man They must bo cut, returned, and Ida account cancelled, beforo ho leave* tbo room. In another room aro aomc twenty clerk* detailed for signing the demand notes, who are obliged to work almost Incaesantly to supply the pressing calls for this uational loun at Boston, New Y nk and Philadelphia. The culls became ro urgent yesterday that Secretary Chase found It necessary to largely increase the force engaged In their preparation, llo, onco notified the heads of bureaus to detail such clerks as could be spared on this wmk. The reply was thai all handa were busy on regular duly. The law requiring the work to he performed by the regular ein ployes, Secretary Cliaso immediately directed an order to be issued for al! tbo clerks in the four bureaus to re|xirt for extra duty uf or dinner and onlof olilce hours. Hence the great force at work on the notes Tuesday night. The clerks were given to understand that such of them as could not devote a few extra houraof labor to their country In its present exigency could bo dispensed with entirely. The result was that all were on hand. U must be remembered that each note must have two signatures?those of the Regis tor and Treasurer?that three thousand signatures is a large day's work for one man, and that Ave mitliou dollars of five dollar notes requires two million signatures; then one can begin to sen what Is required of the Treasury Department In this branch. Besides overseeing all this, and attending to the ordinary routine business, the tor >'pondcnco of the Assistant Secretary ooveis over threo reams of letter paper daily. These Jotters must all be writlon, copied, signed and franked. To accomplish all this Secretary ( hat e and his assistant.- are obliged to work slxinen hours out of twenty four. It is the determination of the department to to organize the force that one and a half to two and a half million* of notes per day can be placed regularly In the bunds of the banks, until the whole one hundred and fifty million of seven and three t uitlis coupon and fifty million demand notes are in circulation.

It is greatly desired that the Governor should take measures to promptly nil up its ranks to the moilmum n imber, and aflord it a fair opportunity to retrieve its reputation.

The Richmond Examiner at the 11th ssys ono hundred and llfly-six Yunkee pnsoucrs, selected chlotly from among those members of the New York, Massachusetts and Michigan regiments who had evinced the tuctl insolent and Insubordinate disposition, were yesterday afternoon despatched by railroad to Castle Pinckney, a small fortiQuiliou in Charleston harbor, for safe keeping. Included In the number staled above are a number of officers, several of whom are recovering from the effects of the wounds reoolved-at the battle of Stone Bridge.

The party etnbaikod in three car* aiecially provided for their accommodation, each car being guarded by fifteen Southern fldiers, very fully armed. The Yankoea generally seemed quite de.s)>nndcnt at their change of location, but few of their number venturing to cheut their depression with a smile. They wore followed to the depot by a very large crowd, who, nevertheless, entirely refrained from the utterance of any remark which should wound the foellugs of tho prisoners. Eight of tho cloven Yankea mercenaries who escaped from the tobacco factories In this city on Friday night have been arrested uud brought back. The three remaining fugitives,Captaiu Hurd and Lieutenants Murphy and Itaiuor, can scarcely escape the vlgl aul pursuit which has been put upon their track.

detained as prisoners of war biuco the battle or Hull run. Al ter detailing the manner of their escape from Richmond, and the Incidents or their toilsome Journey till the bank or tbo I'otomuc was reachel, where they represented that they were rebel olllcors, with despatches, Lieutenant Murplij 'h narrative continues :? Tlcy were directed up to a creek, on nearlng which they discovered a negro rowing in a boat. They watched him until be landed, when they quietly stole his boat ami rowed down the creek to the Potomac. They round tho boat too small to carry them across the river, and mooting another negro, they traded Tor a bettor though a small boat, giving him tbreo dollars in addition. Thoy accidentally started 011 their Journey across tho Potomac Trum the mouth or Pope's creek, where they saw the pla.n slab announcing the spot where Washington was born. At tliut point the Potomac is wide, and they ha I hardly started before a heavy storm arise, and the v remained in th 1 greatest peril ror somo hours. One was constantly kept baling, but by good fortune thoy reached a Mtryland fishing smack. Even then thoy bad great difficulty In reaching our vessels. They landed near the residence or Mr. Burroughs, at Collar Point, a dutcrminod Union man, who received aud kindly treated them. The next day thoy proceeded to a point three miles distant, and hailed tho revenue editor Howell Cobb, asking that a boat be sent for them, they staling that they wero prls'iuers escaped rrom Richmond. The request was regarded as a snare or tho rebels, and it was reread, and, much disappointed, weary and travel worn, they mule their wiy again to Mr. Burroughs' bouse. Captain Hurd, in tho meantime, having left the party, was near being captured by the Maryland secessionists. This morning, however, they succeeded in reselling the Howell Cold., where they, were kindly received by her officers, Mid were tin u transferred to the Resolute, which ' cotivcyi U tin m to tho city. Of the condition and strength of the robe! army none of the three gentlemen were able to come to any sall.ifactory conclusion, although they are all intelligent, educate 1 and observing men. Their communications wore principally with privates of the rebel army or citizens, who, of course, wero only apprised of the movements by popular ri.tnor. They conclude, however, that they have a very powerful fou e, with an abundance of provisions. The rebels themselves appeared to be In excellent spires, and anxious for another battle with the Yankees. Mr. Murphy was surprised at tho large number of Irishmen in tho robel ranks. They were itidiireroutly cloiiiod, the materia] used being almost entiroly of a gray homespun cloth. They wero well armed with Springfield and o.h r Improved muskets, and Colt's revolvers seemed to be us numerous umong privates as they wore In our own ranks. A favorite arm w hich tliey wore was a hugo bowle knife. No Hpccic was in circulation of any moment, sliinp'asiots being tho only circulating medium in extensive use. Merchants would not receive bills in juymciit, except a certain quantity of goods were purchased. The fiitiUcallous ubout Richmond, nn they learned by the Richmond |ia|iers,bad been completed a few days bofore their escape, and the negroes who had worked ujion them were discharged. They wero done mostly by free negroes pressed into the service, who hod been paid (11 per month in Virginiu currency.
