Gonor?l Scott has retired from the command of the tunny of tho United States to day. The following lotter from General Scott was received by the President on Thursday afternoon : ? IlKADqUARTKKi OF TIIK ARMT, , Wasiuiiuton, Oct. 31, 1801. J The lion. Swox Camkron, Secretary of War: ? Fir ? For more than threa years 1 havo been unable, from a hurt, to mount a horse or to walk more than a few pacos Bt a time, and that with much pain. Othor and new in Brmities ? droisyand vertigo ? admonish mo that rcpojo ?f mind and body, with the appliances of surgery Bad medicine, aro necessary to add a litt'e cnore to a lifo already protracted much bevon l the usual span of man. It is under such circumstances, made dou bly painful by tho unnatural and unjust rebellion now raging in the Southern Stutea of our so lately prosperous Bnd happy Union, that I am compelled to request that my name bo placed on the list of army officers retired from active service. As this request is founded on an absolute right, granted by a recent act of Congress, I am entire !y At liberty to say it is with deep regret that I withdraw myself, in these momentous time? , from thr> orders of a President who has treated me with much distinguished kindness and C wrtesy, whom I know, upon much iwrson ?1 intercourse, to be patriotic, without sectional partiali ties or prejudices, to be highly conscientious in tho per formance Of every duty, and of unrivalled activity and perseverance. And to you, Mr. Secretary, whom I now officially address for tho last time, I l>eg to acknowledge my many obligations for the uniform high considera tion I have received at your hands, and have tho honor to remain, sir, with high respect, your obedient servant, W1NFIELD SCOTT. A special Cabinet Council was convened this morniug at nine o'clock, to take the subject Into consideration It was decided that Gon. Scott's roquest, under the cir cumstances or his advanced age and infirmities, could not be declinod. Gen. McClollan wag thereupon, with tho unanimous agreement of tho Cabinet, notified that tho command of the army would bo devolved upon him. At four o'clock in the afternoon tho Cabinet again waited upon the President, and attended him to the resi. dence of Gen. Scott. Being seated, the President read to the General tho following order: ? On the first day of November, A. I). 1861, upon his own application to tho President of the United states, Brevet Lieutenant General Winfleld Scott is ordered to be placed, and hereby is placod, upon tho list of retired offl. eors of the army of tho United States, without reduction in his current pay, subsistence or a'.lowuuc s. The American people will hoar with sadness and deep emotion that General Scott has withdrawn from tho BCtive control of tho army, while tho President and unanimous Cabinet express the r own and tho nation's sympathy in his personal alhicti >n, and their profound ?enso of the important public rerv.i ? ? rc ndercd by him to his country during liis long and i>ril uit career , among which will cvor be gratefully distinguished his faithfui devotion to tho constitution, the L'ni< n and the flag, when assailed by parricidal rebellion. ABRAHAM LINCOLN. General Scott thereupon rose and addressed tho Presi dent and Cabinet, who had also risen, as follows: ? run- went ? This honor overwhelms mo. It overpays nil services 1 have attempted to render to my country. If I had any claims before, they arc all obliterated by this expression of approval by tlio President, with tho re maining support of his Cabinet. I know tho President ar.d this Cabinet well. I know that tho country has placed its interests In this trying crisis in safe keeping. Their conn sola arc wise, their labirsaro as untiring as they arc loyal, and their courso is the right one. President, you must excuse me. Iam unable to stand longer to give utterance to the feelings of gratitudo which oppr< ss mo. In my rotlroraout I shall offer up my ; prayers to God for this administration and for mycotm- I try. I .-i;a!l pruy f ir it with oonfldonco in itssucce.'s oro,- ' all enemies, and l h it speedily. Tho Prcsldoi. t then to.'k loave of General Scott, giving klm hia hand, and suying be hoped soon to write him a ! private lett r expressive of li.s gratitudo and afleetlon. ? Tlio President nddol:? Gexehal ? You will n.iturally feci solicitude about the ' gentlemen of your stuft , w ho huve renderod you ar.d their c untry su< h faithful service. I havo taken thnj subject into consideration. I understand that they go with y u to New York. 1 .''hail desire tliem at their oirliest con venience, i.ftor their return, to mako their wi.-hes kn iwn to me. I doslro you now, however, to be .it ;1<mI thai, oxcept the unavoidable privation cf your counsel anil ^crrctiry, whieh they have so long | enjoyed, tho provision which will bo made for them 1 will be such iu to render their situation as agreeable horcal ter as it has been heretofore. Faoli member cf tho administration then gave his band to the veteran, and retired in profound silence. Tha following is tho reponse of thefeoretaiy of War to tbe k iter of General Scott:? War Departukkt . Washuwtox, Nov. 1, 1801. Gikerai ? It was my duty to lay before the President your lcttor of ye?terday,?sklng to b) relieved under the rccent act of Congress, In separating from you I cannot refrain from expressing my deep regret that your health, shattered by long service and repeated woi.nds receive] in your country's dofence, should render it necessary for you to retire from your high position at this momentous poriod or your history. Although you are not to remain In actlva service, .yet I hope that whllo I contlmw In charge of tho department over , whieh I now preside, I shall at times bo permitted to ?Vfil rrys^lf of the benefits of your wise OOunrds ?i4 ?age experience, It baa bean my good tortutaa to enjoy a personal acquaintance with you for over thirty years, and the pleasant relatione of that long thna have bean greatly strengthened by ywor cordial and antlro oo operation m all tba great questions which hate occupied the depart ment and con mined the country for the last six montba. In parting from you, I can <snly express the hope that a merciful Providence that haa protected you amid ao many trials will improve your health, and oontinue your life long after tho people of the country ahall have b^an restored to their former happiness and prosperity. 1 Hri, General, vorf sincerely, yot^r friend and servant, SIMON CAMERON, Secretary of War. lieutenant General Winpixu> Scott. Tb? scene at <ho Cabinet meeting to-day waa very affecting, on tbo occasion of the reading of the cor. res|>ondonco between Secretary Cameron and General Scott. The latter wept whon the President read to hiaa the paper authorising his retirement. General Scott will leavo in tho early train to morrow for New York, accompaniod by Secretary Cameron, who will proceed as far us Boston before his return. A special train has been placed at the disposal of the Secretary of War and General Scott, and it will proceed by way of Harrisburg, to avoid the annoyance to Genera) Scott of a change of cars. The party will dine at Harris burg. Upon General Scott's arrival at New York, in a few days, he will issue a parting address to tho American people. General McClellan is now Commander in Chief of the entire army of tho United States. This chango In tho military command of tho army of the United States will chaugo tho military programme, and will remove all un pleasant embarrassments. All honor to General SooU, and all hail to Young Amo rica. IMPORTANT ORDER FROM GENERAL M'CLBLLAN. Major General McClellan to-night issued the following order:? GKNHLAL ORI BB ? NO. 10. IlKAtKirARTKRS OF THE ArHY, \ W'amiini.to.n, Nov. 1, 1801. J In accordance with Genoral Order No. 64, from the War Department, I hereby assume command of the ar mies of the United St atop. In the ml 1st of the dilllculties which encompass and divide the nation hesitation and self-distrust may well accompany tho assumption of so vast a responsibility; but, confiding as 1 do in tho loyalty, dl.'ciplmo and courage of our troops, and bolieviug as I do that Provi dence will favor ours as the just cause, 1 cannot doubt that success will crown oar etrorts and sacrifices. The army will unite with mo in the feeling of regret that the weight of many years, and tho effect of increos ing intimities, contracted anil intensified in his country's service, should just now remove from our head the great soldier of our nation, the hero who, in his youth, raised high the reputation of his country in the Holds of Canaila, which he sanctified with his blood, who in more mature years proved to tho world that American skill and valor could repeal, If cot eclipse, tho exploits of Cortez in tho land of the Montezumas, whoso whole life had been de voted to the service of his country , wlioso whole efforts have been directed to uphold our honor at tho smallest sacrifice of life; a warrior who scorned tho selfish glories of the battle field when his great qualities at; a statesman could he employed tuoro profitably for his country; a citizen whose declining years have given to tho world tho most shining instances of loyalty in disre garding all ties of birth and clinging still to the caure of truth and honor. Such lias be n th? c ireer and character of W infield Scott, whom it has long been the dt light of the nation to honor, both as a man and u a soldier. While we rogret his loss there is one thing we cannot regret ? tho bright example ho has left for ojr emu lation. Lot us all hopo and pray that his declining ytarg may bo passed in peace and happiness, and that they may bo chiered by tho success of the country and tho cause he has fought for and loved so well. B 'yond all that, let us do nothing that can causo him to blush for us; let no defeat of the army ho has so long commanded embitter his last years, but let our victories illuminate the close of a life so grand. GKORGK B. MiCI.El.MN, Major General Commanding U. 8. A. OVATION TO G9.NKRAL m'ci.ellan. General McClellan hus received quite an ovation to night at his headquarters, the President, members of the Cabinet and distinguished military and civil officers of the government naving called to congratulate h.m upon his new position. THE RECENTLY PUBLISHED REPORTS OP GENERAL STONE AND ADJUTANT GENERAL THOMAS. 1 have tho permission of General McClellan to announce that tho report of General Stono, delivered to him by one of the latter's aids on Monday morning last, has never been permitted to be copied in this city by any portion, and baa never been furnished by General McClellan to any person, not tfven tho President or Secretary of War, be cause of its incompleteness; that it was novor furnished by General Stono to tho War Department, nor to tho Pfefll lent, and that neither Mr. Lincoln nor Mr. Camoron had seen it until it appeared in tho New York Trtimnr. General McCli lion says that If tl o Trit>vn' 's report was made from any copy in Washington it must have been made from the official repirt ujion his private table, and that that copy must have bo< n stolen for that purpose on Monday night last, during his absence for a few hours. Tho Introduction to tho report in the Tribune., that it was sent into the War Department, is a lie on tho face of it. Tocovor up his tracks still further, the person who smug, gled the report into tho JYilrun". carefully leaves out tho name of General McClellan, tho only person to whom the report was addressed. The author of this high handed outrage is known to the govcrnmout. So much for Gi-n. Etono's report. The report of Gen. Thomas was prepared, at tho re quest of Secretary Cameron, for the private perusal of the President, and its appcarance in tho Tiibtne is a surprise to Secretary Cameron, Assistant Secretary Scott, Ailju tant General Thomas and Chief Clerk Leslie, all of whom deny that they authorized or had any knowledge of its publication. It is a private State paper for tho use of the Pre^ilentand Cabinet, and its publication is viewed as exceedingly injurim.-s to tho public service. U is tho duty of the Secretary of War to ferret out the person who so ;iscd the document, and make him a public example Relative to General Stone's report, It has been ascer tained thai the copy was furnished to tho Tribune re porter from General Stone's headquarters, and waa brought to thiscity, "and telegraphed to that paper fnm liore, thus appearing to scroen General Stono and com promising General McClcIIan and tho War Department Tho rej<irtcr to whom the copy was improperly given id charged with having violated his word of honor in pub lishing it before being authorized to do so by Genoral McClellan. A strange fact ,r developed by this favoritism on tho part of General Stone. Wh. n ho first moved from this city with his column he was reported to have slated that he would bang any corrcrpor.dcnt of a New York paper whom ho caeght within his lines. He went so far as to arrest one representative of the press and incarcerated him, the latter having committed no offonce; but when he comes to meet with a military reverse, ho flics to one of this very class of men to rescue him from public condemnation before reporting to his superior officer. AFFAIRS ALONG THE UNION LINEP. Thero have bcou no dem> ustrations to -J ay along our whole lines. MOVEMENTS OP THE REBELS. The outer pickets of Gen. Met all's division were driven hi last night, indicating an advance of tho rebel army. A large party was sent out to meet them, whon they re treated. Their object evidently waa to capture tho men on tba outposts. Signal lights were plainly visible last night in the di lection of Leesbur?. and also towards Ceatrovllle. THE REBEL FORCE AT MANASSAS. A contraban 1 who came within the lines of Generau Hancock to-day reports that ho loft Maaas.-as J< net ion Wednesday Bight; that tho rebels have extensive fort i Ocatkins at Centrevillo, and an army of fifty thousand! an ! that their camps extend to within two milen of Fair" fax Court House. At Manassas they have about ten thousand troops. AFFAIRS ON TI'I? rprElt rOTOMAC. A letter rccilveJ to-day from Daroostowu. Martian |. says that the rebel* now have (heir picket* on Harrison'* I*lan<l, and that reliable intelligence from Leesburg give* Information th&t on Tuesday succeeding the fight at Ball'* Bluff the rebel* withdrew their force* from Lees burg on our troops being thrown over at Edward*' Ferry, leaving only a few battalions to keep np appear ances and watch our movements. Thoy subsequently took away all their supplies, and woro at the latest ac counts retting on Goose creek, seven miles south of Leea burg. A?TA1R8 ON TUB LOWER POTOMAC? NEW RKBlL BATTKIUKH KRMCTBD. A new buttery of rifled guns, thriie In number, ha* boen discovered about a mile and a half below any that have been heretofore fired. It Is situated a little below a new brick house, not far from tho wharf, at Evanaport. A fi'W days ago tho robots sent a small boat from Quantlco I creek over toward Budd's Kerry, bearing a flag of truce. When she had approached to within two or three hun drcd yard* of the Maryland shore, a bairel with some thing attached to it w;is thrown overboard, and tho boat immediately turned and pulled back to the Virginia shore. The barrel was supposed to contain an infornal machine. The Resolute camo up tu tlie Navy Yard yesterday af term on, and went <lown to tho llolllla again in an hour or I two. The Pusey camo tip late last night, and left the I yard again oarly this moruing. Both steamers report that aflhlrs are without change down tbo river. The rebel steamer George Page is still coped tip in Quant ico crcek, but has worked her way sufficiently far in to bo out of night from tho Maryland shore.

NEWS FROM GENERAL BANKS' ARMY. IXarxestowh, Md., Oct. SI, 1M1. The recent order assigning tho Maryland brigade to guard Uio Baltltnoro and Ohio Railroad, causes general dissatisfaction among the privates und subordinate offi cers.
