NeRber Beauregard* promise to his array, to take tho ?tr of Washington, aor that given aboat crossing ovor telo Maryland bavQ yet been fulfilled. The form I luMe appearance of the Union forces at every assailable [>oint precludes the one, and the dissolution of the saoeeskm Legislature Of Maryland renders the other profit Iwe as well as hamrdous.

There is no immediate probability that this will be dose, In view of the fact that the rebels in Virginia wlU be quite as badly and as surely defeated by Inactien as by a general engagement, in which the lives of tundredrcf our soldiers might be lost: to attain a result that can 1>e reached withoct such u Haertflce.

A fow days ago lieutenant JlcGaw, commanding the Pocihontaa, landed near tha White House, and made a thorough cooenoolssance of tits neighborhood. He found Ihero neither batteries nor rebels. The place was deserted. It 4a also reported by negroes taken in the vicinity of ifafthta* Point, that tha rebels have now no gjina in battery there, and only a small force of tftree er four hundred man engaged in watching the sscvvemecta of oar Potomac teat.

He left there on yesterday, and j I wiy* no is totally disgusted with tne conieoeraw went, and that the umo feeling prevail# througho'itmore than half of the rebel army, that It is domoraiftod; that Urge numbers of the Gulf Slate troops are leavynrg, and others belonging to the other Southern coMit States havo left Manassas for home. Be elate* that there Is no Intention on the part of tho rebel generals of attacking our lines, and that their guns are left ia position and the places ?rt garrisoned for appearance only; that the fear on the part of the rebels Is that eur troops will attack them. He asserts most positively that they have not the power either to attack the Dslon army, or even to defend themselves against any considerable force. They view their Bull run success as a sort of luck and chance atfhir, which oost them too dearly to boast much over. They were so totally cut to pieces and disorganized that It took them quite as long to rally from It as It did the Union forces from their pan is and stampede. This robel officer, who escaped across the Potomac, and reached this city through Charles county, Maryland, says he was pressed Into the rebel service, is thankful he has escaped, and desires to take the oath of allegiance, which he will do to-morrow. Ho has keen a citizen of Baltimore, and has had a wifo living In this city for several months. That he has not come here as a spy Is evident from the manner of his conduct since his arrival to-night. RKVIKW OF GENERAL M'CALL'B DIVISION, THR PRINCE DK JOINV1LLE AND 8UITK ASSISTING IN TI!E CEllKMONY?CREDITABLE APPEARANCE 09 THE PENNSYLVANIA TROOPS, ETC. At ten o'clock this forenoon General McdeTUn despatched one of his aids and ;i detachment of cavalry to Wltlard's Hotel, to esoort the Prince de Jolnvllle and sons and suite to the commanding Goneral's headquarters, whoro the Gcnoral revived the Prince with all the honors, and then proceeded immediately to review Major General MeCaH's division of Peunsylvania troops. The party arrived on the flold, amidst tho firing of cannon, at halfpast eleven, where the troops were drawn np in columns of two regiments each. General McC!c!ti?n, uncovered, advanced to tho centre, where ho met Gt norol McCall. The Prince and suite took a position a f w yards In the rear. General McClellan soon approach id I ??I?J rriaem, wim ueuorai MCVBII, >na introduce!! me I Prince to the commander of tho division. Prince de Joln? ?illa removed his black Kofwu'h hat and bowed graoefully. The review commenced, and was proceeded with in regular order, General McClcllan riding a few feet in ...Vance of his staff, who had the Prince and sons In charge. Tho troops made a flno apjwjaraiice, inarching and wheeling like experienced regulais. They aro well nnlformod, very neat and healthy In their appearance, and look lite men of great tnduranco. General McCall receivod many compliment*; from General MoClclian, the Prince, and other distinguished military men on the Hold, for the flto appearance of his troops. Pennsylvania is making up '.or Uie past, and if what I witnoasod today la any criterion by which to judge, tho old Keystone State will come gloriously rmt of the conflict. Aftor the rovicw G?n. MoCJellan and staff, the rrlnce and suite, accompanied Gen. McCall to his headquarters, i where refreshments were nerved. Gen. McClellan, having an eye to businoss, gave his guests but a short time to rest, having business rise where. He subsequently inspected Gen. John Fii7. Porter's brigade. These frequent Inspections and reviews are mainly for tho purpose of Laving the ofilcers and meu see and know their commanding General and stall, to avoid mistakes by a want of such knowledge iu the event cf a battle.

TLere is work for the United Statec District Attorneys aa well as for the 'Generals. Thouaacda of men in the border States are induced to favor the causc of tha.rebels only by the belief thai they will profit by it pecuniarily. The souls, tbo principles, tie honor and the honesty of these men aro In their pocket*. Tlicy can be reached through no other channel. In the rebel States the confiscation of the property of Union men is psesecuted with a vonfeanco, and If the meat act of Congress authorising the confiscation of the property at rebels la arms agaicat the government were at once executed In Lbs border States, It would strike more terror Into the sordid hearts of tbeao purse proud aiders and abettors oftraaaca than a buodrod battles.

The night I wrote to you last, our regiment receive ! orders to be In readiness to march at half-past ten o'clock P. M. Similar orders were iasued to fee rest of the brlgale. At about nln# o'clock the cavalry and two battel s of artillery w it!) tha Thirty-third New York roglment paused over the bridge,so were aware o ir destination <was into Virginia again.

All Ifce camp equipage tenia and baggage, are left tble aide, and will not be taken over until It If certain we can bold Ibe p< Bltlona we havo occupied. Two forte are being built that will oommand all approaches to the bridge, and 0 ..? wciu^ ortuiou iu wTeru uiucr tween fbree and four bundrad acres of woodland has already been cleared. On Wodnesday and Thursday over two thousand men wero engaged In chopping. The Flxth Maine regiment beat all the rest at that business. U was astonishing to see with what rapidity they mado their way through those dense woods They walkod through them as last as a man would cutting corn. Two companies of our regim nt, Bennington and Montpclier, under Lieutenant Colonel Stuenarl, are stationed near the r< a I about a mi'e and a half from the ] bridge,near General Smith's headquarters, with a bat | tory of arrillery. The remainder of the regiment is on a bill to <ho left of the road, engaged ru building a fort With them are Colonel Baker's California remmenl, the Seventy ninth New York (Highlander*), Captaiu Simpmmi's battery of flying artillory from Pennsylvania, and a company of cavalry. General Smith, of our brigade, Is 1 in command of the whole foroe on the other aide (about Chain Bridge). which amounts to about twelve thousand men. General King, of Wl-consdn, occupies General Smith's former quarter* on this side, and has oommond of the reserve. The Quartermaster and Commissary departments remain on Ibis side the river, and send over supplies as they aro needed. 1 go over the river every day?sometimes two or three . time* a day, returning to camp at night. It Is not likely 4. any advance will be male until wo aro well establishes here. Our pickets extend out four miles from the brid s often in sight of the rebel pl< kets. As near as mod learned they have a forco of from ten to fiftoen thoi *vnd pome flvo or six miles from General Smith's headqur .ncrs, but they have shown no disposition yet to advar ^ thoy do not soon it will be iu vain for them to try for Uiey will pel a worse taste of "masked batteries' we did at Bull run.
