The large hall not being able to accommodate

Four Monitors are in position ofl' Sullivan's

No casualty has occurred on our side. Our
firing was to get a perfect range of the rebel

batteries, mounting guns at Sumter, and not
j the commencement of any vigorous assault.

Washington, Oct. 30.?[Associated Press
Dispatch.]?There Is nothing or unusual inter
est reported from the Army of the Potomac
to-day. Tho railroad is repaired to Catlett's
Station and"pushing on to the junction. The
cars are expected to reach there to-morrow.
Seme of our troops are said to be at a point

The Fight near Bealeton?Forces Engaged
on Both Sides?Repair* to the Railroad
Probability of a Battle?Oar Army Ready
for a Fight.
Catlett's Station, Va., (Jet. (Corres.
pondence of the Philadelphia Inquirer.]?"All
quiet along the lines," is the phrase that de
scribes the present state of affairs on our front.
The cavalry are still picketing on nearly the
same line as my last writing, and have had
one or two brushes with the enemy. The
latter advanced on Monday with two brigades
of infantry, and attacked onr cavalry pickets,
under Colonel Devin, to the left of Be&leton,
and soon after those of Colonel Chapman's
brigade, further oa the right. Our pickets
were driven back by the enemy's skirmishers;
but we, in torn, on bringing up our supports,
drove them to their main body.
The troops engaged on the Rebel side were
Stuart's (notJeb.)and Walker's brigades, of
Johnson's division, of Ewell's corps, with
some little cavalry. Walker's brigade is the
one originally commanded by " Stonewall"
On onr side there were the fwo bricades of
duiuiu ? i/i * miuu ttoorn mentioned (Uii&p*
man's and Devin's,) and no infantry, as was at
first reported. A section of Lieutenant Willis
ton's Battery, attaohed to chapman'u firignda,
was brought in, and the rebels had a battery
of six guns,
The only object of the enemy in making the
advance appeared to be merely the protection
of their wagons in hauling away the railroad
iron from near Bealeton, and they showed no
disposition to follow us up any further than
was necessary for that purpose. After the
fight was over our picket line remained within
something less than a mile of its old position.
Although firing was kept up more or less
briskly from about 10 a. m. until night, the
affair was nothing more than a slight skirmish,
but few casualties occnring on either side.
We captured in the skirmish one lieutenant,
belonging to the 5th Virginia infantry, and two
privates. The lieutenant corroborates the re
ports previously beard in regard to their inten
tion of making a stand at the Rappahannock.
He says they have one ot their best engineers
superintending the construction of fortifica
tions, and a large number ot men constantly
emplcyed on them. If they make a stand this
side the Rapidan, the ridge this side of Brandy
Station will probably be thei* main position.
They can hardly prevent us from crossing the
river whenever we wish to do so, but at the
point designated they would be able to give us
battle with the advantage of position consider
ably in their favor; and should there be a gen
eral engagement within the next month, that
will probably be the battle-field.
From all that now appears snch a battle
seems quite probable. The rebuilding of the
rsilroad indicates that offensive operation on
this line are still contemplated by the dfar De
partment; and, beside, it is known that General
Wleade was mnch chagrined and disappointed
at not being able to bring Lee to a general en
gagement, either at Rnll Run or at the Rappa
hannock, during the late movements, whence
we may infer that he will be inclined to seek
the earliest opportunity to idemnity himself for
his disappointment on that occasion. There
are, alto, some Other indications that resump

? Liqcob.?On Monday afternoon, by or
der of one of the military detectives, the houses
of Mrs. Spaulding. onC, near First street west,
and Mrs. EUen Kelly, on New Jersey avenue,
1.1 w*?? -?? ??- - " ' -
near the Depot, ware ordered to be closed, for
selling liquor to soldiers. Theerder was not
however obeyed, and both partes ware arrest
t^1ce*traf fuardhouse, from
whitfc Mrs. Spaulding was transferred to the
Old Capitol yesterday* The hxmseswwa locked
lag's house, and found three mea, Chas. No
y*na wagon, U which ws* three barrelsot
and Wrtinnnni<^ffVt barttes to the Fift?
Ww*SS5E, nidthey wenTtnraed over to
Capt. (J&mp, at the Soldiers* Rest, who re
ferred the matter to Capt. Todd, and Nolan
was committed to the central guardhouse.
Roundsman Pierce and Officer Clements, at
7 o'clock yesterday morning, found Jas. Free
man and twoother men at Mrs. Kelly's house,
in the act of moving off her effects, having on a
full load of the most costly of the stock. The
oflloers took them in charge also, and reported
the facts to Captain Camp, and Provost mar
shal Todd sent Freeman to the guard-house.
The liquor has been confiscated.
Navy Yabd?At the Nary Yard every de
partment is in full operation, employing "now,
perhaps, a larger number of hands than hare
ever been employed before. The boiler shop
has had tbe sonth door enlarged, so taat the
largest sized boilers can be put together here
and be removed to the wharf without the ne.
ceseity of having them built in portion*. The
steam gunboat Western World, of the North
Atlantic Blockading Squadron, which, it will
be recollected, was in the storm of August last,
In which the liainbridge was lost, has been un
dergoing repairs, which was much needed, as
her timbers were found to have been terribly
strained. The new gunboat Entaw, built in
Baltimore, is still lying at the wharf, where
experiments upon her machinery have been
made tor the last three or fonr months. Tbe
Yankee, ol the Potomac flotilla, has been un
dergoing repairs, as hasalso the mortar schoon
ers Matbew Yasser and Wm. Bacon. The
Tulip (built originally for Mandarin Ward, of
China) has been having some improvements
added to her machinery.
