Paroled Prisoner* required to re port immediately. The Army successfully placed in position. GUNBOATS NEAR WASHINGTON. Rumors of Rebel Movements. FROM FREDERICKSBURG. Washington, September 4. All prisoners of war taken by the federal forces and paroled,and now within the military department of Washington, are required to report immediately at Gen. Wadsworth’s headquarters. This is supposed to be with a view to an exchange. The work of getting the army into a good position in front of Washington, lias been ac complished with entire success, fio well con ducted lias been the process of getting back from Centreville to its present position of de fence and perfect security, that not one army wagon was left on the route. Everything was carried through in the most systematic man ner. Many of the troops now occupy positions a short distance from the positions of last liill and winter. The division of Maj. Gen. Fitz John Porter, composed of the brigades of (fens. Morrill, Martindale, Uuttertleld and Gridins, have tlu-ir tents pitched near the ramp ground of last year. The tents of the famous Gridin's battery, now commanded by Lieut. Haskell, a gallant olticer, who was wilii the battery at the drst battle ol Hull Hun,have their camps upon the idetitieakpiece of ground occupied by them last winter. Lt. David H. .Smith of the 15th N. V., and Col. McLeod Mur phy, against whom charges had been preferred by the colonel, have been honorably dismissed from the service, by order of the President. It is already known that this city and its neighborhood were recently in a feverish state of excitement and alarm, owing to the late battles and the retrograde movement of our troops, hut at the same time a feeling of se curity was generally felt among our citizens that the capitol was not within the easy grasp of the enemy. When the war assumed its with sojourners, left Washington iu alarm, but now it is not known that any have taken their departure under a panic or serious appre hension of danger by the rebel invasion. The chain bridge, the timbers of which were, it is reported, removed several days ago, was to-day made use of for military purposes, thus facilitating intercourse belweeu Virginia and Maryland. It lias already been stated that a numlier of gunboats have approached within view of Washington. Tlie up|>eurance of them in the vicinity of Georgetow n this J*. M. was indeed a wonder, such craft never having before np lieared in that part of the I’otomuc. Tlie riv er shore iu that vicinity was lined with spec tators, and the day living beautiful, the surrounding scenery ami the movements of tlie troops presented a scene at once beautiful and Impressive. Tlie military movements were conducted iu an orderly and evidently deliberate manlier. There are numerous reports concerning tlie movements of tlie rebel troops. It is difficult to ratify them all, hut there seems to be no doubt that they have passed to Diaiusville, Leesburg and further up the valley. Tlie Postmaster at Leesburg reached Wash ington last week, intending to return on Mon day. but to-day lie wisely concluded to defer his departure for that locality. A gentleman who arrived from Fredericks burg last night, a union citizen of Washington, reports that the destruction of bridges over tile Kappnhannock at that place was not com pleted by our troo|« before they all evacuated, the wire bridge, passable only for foot passen gers and light teams,having only been partial ly injured, and which has since been repaired by the citizens. Scott's foundry, he repre sents, was not blown up as reported, although powder was placed therein liir that purpose. After our troops left Fredericksburg the citi zens were afraid to venture into the building, being apprehensive of torjiedoes or infernal machines left by our troops in the Imiiding, over which tlie national (lag was still floating when our inlormaut left. Rebel Iron Clad War Steamer Cruising in the Gulf. Several Merchant Vessels Captured. The Nashville again ran the Blockade. New York, Sept, 4. Tlie steamer Forest City lias arrived from Washington w ith a large number of sick and wounded soldiers. No list was on board. The barque Prentiss Hobbs arrived from Matan/.as to-day. She reports that an iron clad war steamer arrived at Cardenas on the 19th, flying a piratical rebePrag. Our Consul at Havana, Gen. Shurieldt, placed dispatches ■ aboard the barque, to be delivered at Key ! West, but although she lay oil' Key West 8 hours, with a signal of distress flying, no notice j was taken of her, and the dispatches were j mailed to-day from this port.

BAYOU SAHA SIIEELEI) AND DE STROYED BY THE ESSEX. SKIRMISHING AT GREENVILLE. Chicago, Sept. 3. Despatches received at headquarters from Jackson 2d inst., say that Bolivar Is reported to lie invested by a heavy force under Gen. Price. There is also a large force of the ene my within seven miles, threatening to attack. Gen. Villippigne is reported to have crossed tlie Hachie river at Brownsville on tin- night of the 1st, and is probably making towards Bolivar. Wc have whipped the enemy in every skirmish yet. The Grenada Appeal confirms the Federal evacuation, but docs not say the place is de stroyed. From tlie same, paper we learn that the gun boat Essex shelled Bayou Sara Sunday A. M., and afterwards a I mats crew lauded and burnt all tlie houses on tlie levee. The Essex anil transports then passed down the river, it is | suppose, for reinforcements, to St- Francis ville. A skirmish between tlie rebel pickets and a squad of federals took place on the 27th. near | Greenville, Miss. Two federals were killed. ' In tlie rebel attack oil Uniontowii, Ky., they captured 200 stand of arms and destroyed 200 hat es of cotton. NEW JERSEY STATE. Democratic Convention. Tisexton, N. J.. Sept. 4. The Democratic Convention organised this afternoon, and nominated Joel Parker a* can- , delate for Governor. Resolutions were adopt ed in support of the war; deprecating the : course ot the Administration in suspending the halieas corpus; for restricting freedom of press and speech, and the arrests and impris onment of jktsoiis without due course of law : protesting against prevalent peculations ami extravagance; abhoring the idea of an emanci patory war; applauds the volunteers, and ex presses regret at the death of Tavlor and Kear- j ncy. The Convention afterwards adjourned. | Rebel C'avnlry at Edward's Ferry. Entire Rebel Forces Not Engaged in the Recent Battles. RUMORS AND REPORTS. Washington, September 4. There is nothing new from the front to-day. A number of tielcl officers are in the city, in cluding Gens. Pope and Sumner. There are constant arrivals of troops, both on the Vir ginia and Maryland sides of the Potomac.— There seems to be no doubt that the Maryland side is now free from armed rebellion. Five scouts or spies crossed over yesterday at Ed ward's Ferry, and were seen at or near l’ools ville, hut they did not long continue in the neighborhood. A regiment of rebel cavalry was at Ed ward's Ferry yesterday, and amused them selves by saluting our men on the Maryland side with Held pieces, doing no damage. The rebels in the recent battles did not fight witli their entire forces, having powerful re Paroled prisoners say that the rebel soldiers express their confidence of crossing over into Maryland in heavy force in the course of four days. They doubtless will make the attempt, serves to l>c made use of if urgency required. The most reliable among the conflicting ru mors is that the rclicl forces, comprising at a guess 100,000, were still moving yesterday through Thoroughfare Gap, branching off to the valley, and stretching upwards to Har per's Ferry. Gen. bigel arrived here to-day, and was warmly welcomed by his friends. Gen. Carl Seller/, is also here. It is denied that Gen. Sigel has lost any guns. Senator Fessenden, who lost a son in the re cent battles, is in the city. Senator Wilson is still here. The clerks of the different Government de partments have commenced drilling. The Washington Star of this evening says: From intelligent and cool-headed men among the returned prisoners we learn that the main force of the enemy has certainly been drawn back to the northwest and northeast of Fair fax Court House, as though in a position to march back through Thoroughfare Gap, or lorward to the Potomac at Leesburg with equal facility. Troops Rapidly Sent to Cincinnati. NEWSPAPER SUSPENDED. REBELS AT PARIS, KENTUCKY. INDIANAPFEtS, Sept. 4. A report was telegraphic to the Chicago Times last night, that Gov. Morgan was op posed to evacuating any part of the interior. Troops are being sent to Cincinnati and Louisville as rapidly as possible. Two regi ments leave town in the morning, and more will follow. A gunboat has liecn ordered to ply on tlie Ohio between Louisville and tlie mouth of the Wabash. Active military preparations continue. All business is suspended, excepting butchers, provision dealers and lakers. Kirby Smith’s forces were posted yesterday at Lexington, Versailles anil Georgetown. The position is a good one for an advance on Cincinnati or Louisville. Troops continue to arrive rapidly. The Evening Times Mas suppressed this P, M. for an article censuring the Administration on its conduct of the war. Preparations for defence are unabated. The Paris, Ky., operator evacuated his office at 11 o'clock this A. M., as the reltel infantry and cavalry were then entering the town. Nothing has been heard from the enemy. Washington, Sept. 4. A report having reached the interior of Pennsylvania that a certain regiment had lieen almost completely annihilated, a committee came hither to-day to render assistance to the supposed wounded, but were dclightly surpris ed that tlie regiment had not even been iu bat tle.

S. transport steamer New Vork, which arrived at Portsmouth Grove last night from Washington, reports on the 1st, off the mouth of tlie Potomac river, was in collision with the schooner Myers, of Kockland, Capt. Khoadcs, from Boston for Washington, with a cargo of icc. The schooner had her stern cut off, aud otherwise injured. .She was abandoned. The crew were taken on Isiard tlie steamer and brought to Portsmouth Grove, with the ex ception of Capt. Kiioades, who was left at \nrfnlk New Yoke, September 4. It is slati'il that a numlier oi* our f it i/1'11-.in cluding government clerks, were undoubtedly captured on Monday by the enemy, who were engaged in harrassing Gen. Banks on bis re treat from Warren ton. Their going to the battle field to |H-rfortn the duty assigned to them without a fiagof truce, was a very unsafe proceeding. The paroled prisoners who ar rived here to-day, say that they were well treated by the rebels, excepting in the matter of lie si. They also state that the rcjiort was prevalent among the enemy that Gen. Ewell had died of his wounds, and that (Jen. Lee was slightly wounded yesterday in the hand, by the accidental discharge of his own pistol. St. Johns, X. F., Sept 4. The Mavrieodato arrived this morning, and proceeded to Montreal via.

By this means it is hoped that British subjects will be prevented from the in conveniences which are inseparable from n state of war. Gen. Sherman publishes a card requesting British subjects to send in their names. The following is a special to the Missouri Democrat:—The Grenada Appeal of the 2d says that the forts below New Orleans have been surrendered to a fleet of Confederate gunboats, and that Baton Uouge had been evacuated by the Federal*, and the forces taken to New Orleans to defend that place. When our forces left Baton Uouge, they took the machinery in tlie penitentiary, and after setting loose the convicts, received them into the army. A dispatch to the Grenada Appeal of the 20th, dated Bayou Sara 25th, says that the fed eral steamer Essex arrived here Saturday and shelled the town, without doing any damage. They then landed two boat loads of soldiers and set. fire to the town. The houses were burned except two. After firing the front of the town, they went around pillaging all the houses that were not burnt. While doing this some of the peiieans tired on them, hut with what effect w not known. They then returned to their boats and steamed down the river, and are supposed to have gone for reinforcements to destroy iSt. Fra ik* is vi lie.
