Dispatches to the Associated Press. Washington, Oot. 28. Information from the Ariny of the Pototnac says Buford's eavalry división was attacked by rebel iufantry near Bealton Station, on Tuesday noon, and forced to fall back upon our infantry, within one mile of Georgetown. There were but few casualties oa either side. It is not true, aa has been reported, that Meade's army is retreating. His headquarters have been moved, but not toward Washington. Gentlemen in military circles herej view our present positioTi aa highly favorable in the event that Lee should venture to make an attack. Several gentlemen who have arrived from tbe Army of the Potomac to-night, sny the firiug heard in the direction of Bealton yesterday, has not been accounted for, but express tfie belief that it involved uothing of importanee. The artillcry wagons recently eapturod by the guerrillas near Warrenton, contained no property of value. This is the seoond daring and suooossful raid during the present week almost in the heart of our camp. It is believed that tho rebels have not pushed any strong force on this side of the Rappahaimock since their grand retreat. Small bodies, however, remain at tho various erossiugs. ïhey are circumscribed to these positions by our forees. The enemy can scout the Neck as far as Stafford CourtHouae and Ilartwood Church. 13?' Bacon says that labor conquers all things, but idleness conquers moro people than lubor does.
