Matty of our i-iiizrf, togelhcr with sojonrtir rs, left Washington, but tuny it is not known that any have taken their departure under panic or serious apprehension of danger by the rebel invasion. The chain bridge, Ihe timbers of which were, it is reported, removed peveral days ago, was to-day made use of for military purposes, thus facilitating intercourse between Virginia and Mary laud.
