Rumors of Rebel Movements.
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
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.

protesting against prevalent peculations ami
extravagance; abhoring the idea of an emanci

constant arrivals of troops, both on the Vir
