WAsmttGTOV, Feb. 9.?[Associated Press Dispatch.}?A letter from the Army of the Po tomac Bays there is do official confirmation of the reported flfcht on the south side of the llapi dsn, With a large body of deserters last week. It is nevertheless known that a feeling amount, ing almost to mutiny prevails In several regi ments of Gen. Lee's army, and it is not improb able that the firing beard was caused by en deavonug to prevent one of them from escap ing. The enemy's pickets are frequently changed, and on one occasion cavalry was substituted for the advanced posts, aud two lines of infantry pickets were posted inthtir rear. Frequent changes of the position of some ot Lee's camps are noted, piohably by substituting well-known laithtul regiments lor those d is - alfected.xiear the frofct.' The feports Concern ing the scarcity of iootf in the enemy's army are confirmed. Only *4 pound of salt pork isai lowed each man per day, and a small quantity of flour in addition, constituting rations. Tea, sugar and Coffee are myths in the service. Ac counts received by prisoners and refugees all concur that the retjel government has not dis tributed any clothing since ohr movement on Mine Run. Some of the Georgia troops have received a Email supply of clothing from that State, hut blankets with them are getting scarce, and command a heavy premium. Intercepted letters from rebel ladies show that of the three thousand cavalry sent into the Valley dmlng the recent told weather, not over four hundred had returned. Many were fro zen to death, and oihers frost-bitten, and sought refuge in farm houses and villages. The en tire movement was a to'al failure. At last accounts Karly's force was resting on Middle river, near Mount Crawford, having abandoned the enu rpTise. DeseTters continue to arrive" from the ft-ont They report treat scarcity of provision*, for age and clothing, and also that large numbers of soldiers are awaiting the proper opportuni ty to avail th< mselves of the President's am nesty proclamation. The enrollment of civilians, white and col orrd, within the lines of the Army ot the Poto mac, is nearly completed. FROM GEM.BUTLER'S DEPARTMENT l'nsucce?sful Expedition np James River. Fokt Monroe, Feb. *2.?Major General But ler has just received the following oltictal re port '? (?n the Mist of January an expedition was sent up James Biver and Pagan creek, to Smith field, to join an expedition up the Cauckatuck, undtr General Graham, to destroy provisions, supplies, a signal station and a smuggling depot. ?? The expedition landed at Smithtteld, con sisting of ninety men and one howitzer, under Cap;. Lee, was to march to Chuckatuck. When five miles beyond Smithtteld they encountered the rebels, MO strong, with two pieces of artil lery, when they retired to Smithtteld, and sent for the armed transport Smith Briggs but ow ing to the fog she did not arrive till half-past 12 o'clock on Monday evening. The enemy, 5<io strong, with tour pieces of artillery, attacked Capt Lee at daylight in Smithfield, but being entrenched, they held out against several furi ous attacKs and charges from the enemy till the Smith Briggs arrived. "The enemy were repulsed at each attack with heavy loss. They sent three flags-of truce demanding a surrender, all of which Capt. Lee refused. On the arrival of the Smith Briggs our small force retreated on board of her, when the enjmy opened a heavy fire of artillery upfih iKSrif. " The Chief Engineer was wounded and the Second Engineer is missing. This pre vented the working of the boat off till a shot struck her boiler and disabled hef, when Capt. Lee and a portion of his command escaped by swimming across the river. The otherts were captured, Including F. A. Bowe, who was wounded. " Our loss In killed and wounded and miss ing Is about eighty. The enemy lost in killed and wounded one hundred and fifty. Soon after the capture of the Smith Briggs she was blown up, making a tremendous report. FROM THE MISSISSIPPI DISTRICT. Retreat of the Rebels at Ringgold and Dal ton?The Capture of Mobile Looked for. Humtsviix*, Ala., Jan. 31? I have just ar rived here from iihattanooga. Before 1 left Gen. Palmer had just returned from a recou nolfcsance to Ringgold and Dalton. The main force of the tnemv had undoubtedly left, aud Gen. Palmer thinks they marched toward Gen. Longstreet for the purpose of invading Kentncky. Since arriving here I have obtained informa tion which satisfies me that Hardee has rein forced Mobile. An attack has nndoubtedly been made on Mobile within five days past. Persons here have solicited permission to go through our linos to attend relations wounded at Mobile. Positive information may soon be expected of an attack on that place, and Its probable fall. ^FROM WEST VIRGINIA. The Rebels Repnlsed and Driven Off. Nxw YonK, Feb. 2.?A special dispatch to the Herald, dated headquarters Western Virgin ia, Feb. 2, 8 o clock, p. m., says : Col.

About jE&'j.COO was taken from the Bank ol England for France, and 46,000 sovereigns for Alexandria. About i.20,000 held in private hands was also transmitted to Paris.

The Daily News says it will probably be pro posed early in the session to appoint aGoveru ment Commission to con^der the question of railways in the metropolis. TtlE KAHISH CRISIS. The Post says the Austrian and Prussian representatives will doubtless quit Copen hagen, and war may be formally declared, but, it is still possible that active hostilitieb may not instantly follow. Neither Austria nor Prussia can possibly wish for a senous war with Den mark, and we suspect that their present policy, however dangerous, is pursued from a sole desire, in consequence of their defeat in the Diet, to become, so far as regards the other powers, masters of the present situation. Tne allied Powers of Prussia and Austria on one side, and Denmark on the other, would be the belligerent parties, and the German Confedera tion, that is to say, the minor Germau Powers, would no Icnsrer have a right to interfere. Ia the pendingdispute, Austriaand Prussia would be the sole arbiters of the conditions on which they would be willing to conclude peace. A Dei. inaik despatch to the Morning Herald save : Fi.KBPBrno, Monday night.?The Envoys of Prussia and Austria have presented an ultima tum, iailing on the Danish Government to withdraw the November Constitution.
