Washixutom, Oct IS. The abandonment
of Leesburg by the rebel force is confirmed
to day. They" are said to have proceeded to
wards a point on the Manassas Gap Railroad.
It is presumed they went to Mnnassasto join
tbe main body of thdr army there, but the
fact is not definitely ascertained, and the
opinion is entertained, in some qujrters, that
they have gone towards Harper's Kerry, by
way of Strasburg and Winchester. The Ut
ter, however. Is bsrdlv problable. For aome
days the rebel army has occupied the segment
of "a circle several miles in extent, reaching
from Leesburg to the north of the Occoquan
The movement recently made by with
