EnwAitDs' Furry-' Oct. 24 ? P. M. The rebels during this afternoon w? re busily engagod in and around their fort between Leesburg and tho river, fronting Edwards' Ferry. They had previously removed thoir advance, but from their movements it was judged they were engaged in replacing them. Tho fort is located ?n tho crest of tho first range of hills from the river, Several hundred yards to tho left of a piece of woods, with a breastwork conuecttng it with aud extending into or in the rear of the woods. To tho rear of this elevation ?s leesburg. Parties of horsemon have at different times during the day come up to the fortifications and reviewed our batte ries ranged along the hills above the Ferry. Between the fort hill and Letsburg evidently r<sts a large rebel force. Tho smoke from their camp fires has boon diEcnv erable all day. It is believed, however, that their main body lies nearer to and directly opposite tho Forry. They ha\e not exposed themselves In any force, but their pick ets and small recounolttrlng parties have several times boen feen. During tho afternoon a train, consisting of about 100 wagons, appeared on a more distant hill, to tho right of Leesburg, aud encamped there under the lee of a piece of woods. Towards dusk a considerable body of cavalry were seen approaching a farm house near tho river, a mile above the ferry, where, during tho afternoon, several bodies of oniccrs had paid visits. It is thought that this house had boen occupied us tho headquarters of some brigade of division. The various regiments located In this region arc endea voring to make themselves ns comfortablo as the limited facilities of the country will admit. Kdwakhh' Ferry, Oct. 25, 1861. Last night our scouts went over the river and picketed the shore for lia'.f a milo back, north of Goose creek. Not a sign of man or horse was heard, except the splash of tho oars of a boat some distance up the river. This forenoon tho rebel pickets were seen at various points on and near tho river above the ferry. Some nro mnuutcd , while others arc on foot. No largo bodios havo boen percelvod, but ft is known that they are concealed by the wood' d range of hills half a milo back from tho river. They still occupy the fort, but apparently not in nny great force, although a very heavy body lies directly in their rear. About midnight there was continued firing at the month of the Mouoeacy, it resulting from the shelling of a rebel camp by our batteries. The enemy did not reply to our shots with any large guns. At headquarters the affair is not spoken of as of any great significance. Tho result of our Grift has not yet been fully ascer tained, beyond tho fact that tho enemy retreated from their position. Their number is represented to have been small. Privates Tuttle, Clemans, Mother, and Roymond, of the Third Wisconsin Volunteer*, were killed, an I Private Rose, of Company C, Third Wisconsin, Corporal Pratt, of Company A, Twenty-eighth Pennsylvania, were taken prisoners by the rebels.

Wo givo Itelow a eorrect list of the killed, wounded and missing in tlio Into engagement at Sunta JPtsa Island, between Colonel Wilson's Zcuaves, supported Ijr a small body of regulars, and a greatly superior force of the rebels. The forces engaged in th > battle appear to have been vory unequal in numbers, the advantage as to men having been largely on the side of the chivalry. The rebels, who were commanded by General Anderson and Colonel Jackson, admit that they numbered some 1,S00; but the probability is that they greatly exceeded that figure. The regulars, under Mujor Vodges, were abouf eighty-five strung, and only portions of six companies ot Wilson's Zoi-aves, about 200 strong, took part in the fight.

TI.K [Washington letter, Oct. 24, in Philadelphia liiipilror.1 General McClcllan's headquarter* worn at Ktwards' Ferry on Thursday morning. Since closing my do>)>ati'b yesterday, Generals McCleUan and Hanks returne d from the Virginia aide of tlio Potomac, and at about ten o'clock rode with a strong cavalry escort up to Conrad's Kerry. Our troo|is havt been all brought from the Is and over to the Maryland sb re, and the Virginia sir >re was thickly covered with rebels. They made no attempt to flro ii|ion our trixi|*, but wore very bold in showing themselves. No shots were (lred by our men, and, after consultation, all of our troops, except a picket guard, were marched to 1 oolesvlllo. The appearance of H' mo of them wad tho moat distressing night we ever witnessed. Many of tliem were nearly nuked; some had on nothing but ovoiooat*; ?onto i nly a pair of pants, ami but few with shoes; most of them were without arma and ammunition. M st of tho wounded had been sent to idolesvir.o and to tho ncurcst camps. < opium Vaughn, who was sent over with a Hag of truce to get permission to bring off the dead and render the wounded what assistance was in our power, has not returned up to the hour which wo wrlto (eleven A. M.), and is no doubt sent to the enemy's rear as a prisoner. About four 1'. M. yesterday tho rebels showed them selves in force upon the hill about two miles and a half towards l?eshurg, where they have thrown up a dirt fort. It was soon found that they had two reglmenta there, and at the sumo tlino a large force was repoi teil ad vancing on our left, on the left of Goose creek, from tho direction of Fairfax t'ourt House. Our force was arain prepared to receive them. Generals \lo< lollan and Batiks, who hail just arrived, took up a |>OHition<n tho high bluff on this side, from there we could see the wholo country before us, for two or three mllos back and a me eight up and down the country. Our batteries were ranged along the hill, ami Genoral Mode I Ian on foot, with a large mariuo glass, watched the whole Hold, fcvery moment he was issuing orders to one battorv to watch tliut road and that lielij, iukI f> be ready to lire its soon as the word w as given. A large force of infantry woro called up and inarched to tho rivor, some of tliom upou the double quick. Several butt rl? s were tAken down, and a fleet of canal boats were run out from th ? canal Into the river, to nros* the men in. Every tlfteen inluules tn. ssenger* would come over and report from our pickets, and it soon bo came evident that we were not to tie attacked beforo morning, and the enoiny were only drawing up thoir re inforcements In order to surround our little force, and either take all prisoners or else euact the Conrad's Ferry disaster over again. AIhi tslx P. M orders were Iss led to have the troops all brought hark , ami those who nad embarked to go over were unloaded and returned to their camps 'lhcn com tnonci d the woi k of bringiiig them backsal'e'y. It was done hy canal boats. They would be loa hd ami th u poled across, lamling half a mile below the point from where they started. All reached here at four A. M.,and the appearaneo of s< me of Uiem was painful indeed. They had sU'Od in lino of battle from twelve to fourteen hours without moving, and w&bo t water or f. od. Ihoy had no sleep for two days and nights, end w to marly exhausted. Some dragged their muskets aloi g by tho end ami seemed to sleep as they walked along. The Minnesota First was the near s' exhausted of any, but wo heard no one grumbling. Allaoomeii thankful to have got over safe , no t a man wms mjui ed In tho roorosslng, nor any baggage lost ? everything came over safe. Gene rals Gorman and Stone personally superintended tho crofsing, ami were tlio last to leave. General Gorman has been in the saddle for two days and nights. About daylight a squad of four or live im nrume run ning down to the s' oro, and with our glissrswere seen to be our men, who found themselves left anil wi rc sfralcl they were lost. A boat wa- sent over after thoin. The reltels had not found out that we had retired, or, at least, bad not made thoir appeal ance then. About nine o'clock tlielr cavuli y scouts w ere si en rang ing along the opposite biils, but did not api roach nearer than a mile, and none were seen on the fort. A wood Ui our right, distant about two miles, is report ed to contain the Mississippi Hrlgade, who were in the buttle at Hull's Hltiff. Generals Hanks iud McCkdlan'l quarter* are moved tn the ri ar of the ltlmr this morning, lunl ore flnofv sheltered by a piece of wood. None of General kicCleltun's body guard havo yet eeuio up. Captain Col ls' company of Zouaves are acting as guard over the oil i iul quarter* where we are now writing, and Captain l lt 'Slmim lis s company of cavalry are to iho left. All around us aro thoiTBonda of camn flres,and the lields are dotted with t ills for miles. Tho military telegi a; di has been ruu here, and a little negro hut In our front c ntalns tho odlce, where tho telegraph instrument is Hashing orders and reports steadily night ai d day. Nothing hut military b isim ss is done, and we must run a horse express to W ashington in order to have our re - p rl telegraphed. It Is over forty miles d:f tarn, and con sequently we nuisi be several hours behind time, Great c: edit is due to General Baker for his heroic uttompi to stem tho current of retreat, and hold ti e gro mil until aid could come, or night cause a c ssut ii n of hosti.illog l'roin a'l th s with whom we have conversed, wo Turn that the terrllic lighting done with m sketry was all that kept the rilie's from cither taking all our t'orco prisoners or killing them. lie knew they could not g' t across if th y went down to the river, and thoy would otily be huililled In a small spue ? mar the liver's ei!g\ mid cculd not escape the murderous lire that won 1 1 havo been open ?: on tin m by the rebels from the. hill an 1 woods, a fuw hundred yards distant. The elllcial report of the wounded and ni'-?'ru? wo havo mwlo arrangements to Iran, mit as arly i.s | r.iclicable. From the sc ittored positions our wounded are ;.ow in it is dilllcult to obuiin statistic-. We are watching momentarily for -omo important move. It now looks as though we would have th ? grand engagement of the campa ign p ar here. The rebels had a large force last night less than threa miles off. [From a Washington Despatch of Oc'olier fi. | One of General Mi < lellan's ulds leleg u iu l to tlio sur geon iu charge Atl'oolesville l ist night, 'inqul. ing about tho wounded in the engagement of Monday Tlio following reply was returned , ? The wounded aro not coming to Washington; they oro well takeu care of hero, ami are doing leiiia-k'thlywell.
