CAPTURE OF A REBEL PICKET NEAR SHREVE'S FARM, VIRGINIA.—SKETCHED BY OUR SPECIAL ARTIST.—[SEE PAGE 747.]

DEPARTURE OF TROOPS FOR
PORT TOBACCO.

OUR special artist with the army of the Potomac happened the other day to be present at one of the mysterious movements which are taking place daily

in General McClellan's army ; viz., the departure of reinforcements for General Sickles's Brigade at Port Tobacco on Sunday morning, November 3. He sketched the scene, and we reproduce it on this page. The troops represented are the New Hampshire Fifth, the Rhode Island Fourth, and

the Pennsylvania Forty-fifth. They had previously been encamped at Camp Union, near Bladensburg. They are a fine body of men, and will doubtless do good service on the Lower Potomac when the right time comes.

We are assuming the offensive on the Lower Potomac,

and have heavy batteries erected in positions which command the rebel batteries. These troops are sent down to support the gunners, and perhaps when the right time comes they may pay Aquia Creek a visit one of these days. The river is now thoroughly commanded by our batteries.

DEPARTURE OF TROOPS FROM CAMP UNION, AT BLADENSBURG, MARYLAND, TO JOIN SICKLES'S BRIGADE AT PORT TOBACCO, NOV. 3.—[SKETCHED BY OUR SPECIAL ARTIST.]
