   It is believed at Washington that the Confederate army have again fallen back, deserting Vienna and the whole line of the Leesburg railroad {Alexander, Loudon & Hampshire RR}, and concentrating at Fairfax Court House. It is also reported from the Upper Potomac that they have withdrawn their forces from the vicinity of Leesburg back towards the Manassas Gap railroad, with the intention, it is supposed, of falling back upon Manassas Junction. Before retiring from Vienna they tore up the railroad, carrying off the rails and burning the sleepers. They also burned a railroad bridge.
