There is no doubt thai the coming seven days will de velojie some im|<ortant moveimoiils ai d results in the ii story ot this great roheilioa. From < very column, from ftortroc-s Monroe and Auuope'is. all along tho great line of the American army, to the plains of Mis?ouri, wo hear tho notes of preparation for immediate action. THE POSITION OK UKMiKAl. mYai.I.'B DIVISION* It is very evident that the movement of Gem ralMoCall, at the head of his division, towards I,e'"-biirg is Intended to cut off tlie rebels if tiny have gone in tbo direction of HATper's lorry, ns some supiioge, instead of falling bock on Mantissas. They have most liUoly done the latter, and General McCall will pro. baMy fail to Ikid an enemy in the direction lie is now marching. TI1K NAVIGATION OK THK POTOMAC. Affairs down the Potomac still engross attention in and about Washington. Tho steamer Murray, a trun-;port vessel eairte up this evening from Indian I leail , some dis tance this sido of Uio rebel batteries, with despatohr-s from Commodore Craven to Captain Dahlgren. A nura ber of sailing vest els passed the batteries at Shipping Point to-day . going down. They were tired al from the rebel batteries, but little damage wen sustained. 'the Commander of tlie Murray says there are a large number of vessels, kouio nnty or seventy, bolow the bolter ieu, loaded with all kind?, of stores, but they arc afraid to ai tempt to puts. Captain isahlgren sijs there is no truth hi the report that the rebels have a chain acioes tbe channel of the Potomac. Ho baa ascertained positively tliat nothing o iho kind exists. Since last Tuesday, when the rebel batteries Hist re^u larly opened, about llfty vessels have reached Washing ton and Georgetown. The schooflfcr loaded with hay* cement aad furniture, which yesterday fell into the hands of the rebels, is tho lirBt casualty of tiiat kind, and is aiono o* iii/' to tlie bre iking ot the hawser . by \> lii.-h it was fastened to the Kemlute, and drifting toward the Virginia shore. The otlior veescl in tow arrived here aai'ely with the Kesolute, notwithstanding the attack from tlie batteries npon them. SThe brig Murray enmeupdur l ing last night, with two schooner? in tow. They om h|>c(' unhurt 'though fired upon. The Murray returned the compliment. MiaPliOT FOK THK -GHiVK OF WASHIKOTON. It Is a remai kable fact that, tin s far, the troops of neither army havo occupied the soil of Mount Ye-non, unless tt bus taken place within a few days. A general watchfulness bus been kept niton tho place by our troops to see that the traitors did not pollute the sacred ground by invading it to erect one of their masked batteries on th-'hanks of the river. Should tln v attempt s.a h a tiling the) will be repuhted by Met lcllon without ilelny, and tho pltu e will afterwards be protected by a guard of honor ,?to- ho composed of troops that have dist inguished themselves in tho war for tho support of the government which Washington labored so hard to establish. Tllk ANTICIPATED REMOVAL OF OBKERAL FREMONT ? No doubt is now -entertained of the s|Kedy rein('\al ot General Fremont from the command in Missouri. There is sum* hefsltat inn ob tlic part of a portion of the admlnis (ration in refereuoe to ilna movement jimt it ia attributa ble altogether to a feeling of delicacy, or political consul oration*, all of which must eventually yield to the re quip in 'tils of tho public service, wluut after investiga tion,a?MD imperatively to demand the removal of Iro mot it.

TUB ESTAFK OF FOUR UNITED STATICS SF.Tl GEANT8 FROM TEXAS. TO 1 If IC EH1TOH OP THK HKKALI). Ntw Yohk, Out. 10. 1801 There arrived in this city y ester day , from the \v\st Indies. tour ' scj|?id Lulled Hluies noncomm issloued offiocrs of the regular army. These bravo feilows be longed to the right h (inltcd Mutes infantry, and were in the command ot Colonel liee\es, which wad aur rendered near Hau Antonio, 'leias, on the Pih of May last . through the treachery aud instrumentality of the traitor Twiggs. The name* or the men are sergoards Parker . Cook, Killn wood aud Hospital Steward t arl E. Bourquist, and nil of tliem havo bt en honorably serving the government for several yours past on the frontiers of Texas and Mexico. They slate that ; the rebel officers broke tbo twins of tho paroles granted to the prisoners, by phning them under guard anil con tiuouient. Also, they failed in furnishing them proper I allowances of ololhiug aud rations. I'uder these circum stances the four men mentioned above determined ii|x>n aud suceoetlod in making good their escape on the ICid <>f last August. Tney evaded the vigilance of the guards placed ovr them, and, by the aid of a compass, made tbeir way on foot lo tho Kio Oraude river, and thenco on to Monterey, M'Xloo. During their jouruey tliey suffered severely from waut of food, water aud long marches; but being old soldiers, well used to fatiguo and hardships, they filially surmounted fell difficulties. In order to avoid detection they wore compelled to travel by night end give the beaten roads a wide berth Tho small stock of money they pop teased was necessarily very economically expended. The Mexicans treated them very kindly, and materially assisted in their ? scape. At Monterey tliey found two or three huudred Union families, who have been driven out of Texas by tho rebels, aud they state there is a con siderable amount of destitution among these loyal i>e<iple. Tho soldiers wero disappointed on learning that there was no United states Consul residing in the town; but l.ere they bought cheap )>onics and started for Tatnpico, which was four hundred and Bfty miles distant. After several days' travel they reached tho town of TUto" pico. Thoy state that Mexican sympathy is for the Union, and lhat nine-tenths of the inhabitants of Western Texas would gladly welcome tho return of United Slates authority; but they are kept down by terror and forco of arms. Tho forts along ihv Rio Grande are nearly all deserted by the rebels, us ilieir soldiers will not remain in them without ralioim ami pay; but, to counteract tbia, the rebel officers arc try iug lo gain men by r -criliting on the Mexican side of tin' river. In 'i'. xa - business of all kinds is ruined, and many of the necessaries of life bring fabulous prices. At Tatnpico our soldiers were kindly assisted by several Americans, and through tbeir aal they were enabled to take passage ot? the Kuglish sroatner for Havana Ihe t tiilwl States ( otrsiil of ibis latter city obtained a passage lnr them home on a sailing vessel, and yesterday they hailed tliesightiif the American Sag wit-h feelings of joy and thanks fur their safe deliverance. Ibe pay of neatly one year's se; vice ? sm due the m< n . and no doubt ere this t ethos you they liav provided Uiemsclvos w ah much needed . comforts. In conclusion, it gives ine pleasure to say that four more intelligent and brave men can not b ? found in tho rank-: of the United i?t:itos Army, and It ii tofee hoped ihal tliey may be amply rewarded by a Jasl ? governii'eul. Of Hi* United State soldiers remain ing in (Texas, as prisoners-of war, some two hundred and nweiy arc at > an p Verde, sixly miles from San Antonio, aid but a very f< vv havo, joined the enemy, though every indiieesicnt i held oui to them for so doing. The officers are kept in niu Antonio, and their liamts are: ? Breve' l.iuuteunnl Oilonel Bomford, Sixth United - tales infantry' Capiat** K. ' Hli-S, H. T.
