FAIRFAX COURT-HOUSE,

October 7, 1862-11.45.

Major-General HEINTZELMAN,

Army Headquarters:

An expedition was made to-day from Centreville, beyond Bull run and Groveton, as it was reported the enemy had a strong cavalry force advanced to the battle-field, and for the purpose of favoring the movement of Colonel Davies. No enemy, however, was found at the place mentioned.

Unreliable reports are coming in saying that it was the intention of General Stuart to clear Loudoun and Fairfax Counties of our troops, and that he was concentrating his cavalry. To-day the cavalry pickets of the enemy were extending along Broad Run, 5 miles beyond Dranesville.
