A Washington dispatch says . . .

. . . “Gen. McClellan’s baggage train is in readiness and only awaits for the order ‘Forward.’  It is a magnificent arrangement, consisting of baggage wagons and carriages for himself and staff, fitted up with sleeping and writing arrangements of the most comfortable description.  The President himself could not ask for more comfortable quarters.
