COMING AND GOING.—-A gentleman from the Potomac says  transports are constantly passing down the river to Grant with new troops, and returning to Washington loaded with the veteran regiments whose term of service have expired.—He is of the impression that the number leaving Grant is fully equal to the number sent to him.  Seven or eight days ago a fleet of transports sailed up the river filled with returning volunteers.  The number was so great that many persons thought Grant was moving an army corps to Washington for the protection of the city.1
