intends to creel a battery nl Newport
News for the blockade of James live r.
A severe contest is reported to have been
rommonced nt Acquia Cmk. R suit
rot yet known. There is it tumor that
the rebels are to nUnck Ahxandria, 20,-
000 strong. Tho stars nnd slrijits are
waving over Leo's residence on Arling

fifty feet span. In 2-1 hturs Col. S. has
not lost a man. The rebels have threat

ed thcio that if tin y killed any rf his men
or attacked the trains with guenilla war
fare, he would pursue them with tire nnd
sword. The Virginia authorities have
been compelled to advance specie to a
railroad company to pay duties on iron at
Alexandria, and nfterwards a large por

jdodgon from both Gcn.'s Seotl and Lee.
The rebels nro busy in organizing a strong
force on the Mississippi, and it is slated that
Beauregard has gone there to take charge.
1 f this is true, it is altogether probable that
