Our army Correspondence. interesting description of the battle of Sharpsburg--operations in the Kanawha Valley, &c., &c. Camp near Martinsburg, Sept. 24. As it seems many contradictory opinions prevail in regard to the fight at Sharpsburg, on the 17th inst, I think it may not prove altogether uninteresting to some of your readers to have a statement of facts, which, though not complete, yet you may rely upon them so far as they go; On Sunday, the 14th, the corps of Longstreet was encamped near Hagerstown, between that place and a village called Funkstown. The artillery of Gen. Pendleton, and the battalion to which I am attached, commanded by Col. S. D. Lee, encamped on Saturday, the 13th, near the latter village, and remained there till Sunday afternoon, at 4 o'clock.

iers for reinforcements, the ordered Jackson to unite with Hill and overwhelming while he stayed the columns of and of Franklin with his best divisions. It turned out this strategy was successful. He and Franklin both to fight on Sunday, the 14th, while poor Miles, who was miles and miles away and pressed by the swarming divisions of Jackson and together, capitulated on the following morning.

(Applause, long continued.) Let us never forget them. On the 14th and 17th days of the present month there have been battles bravely, skillfully, and successfully fought. (Applause) We do not yet know the particulars. Let us be sure that in giving praise to particular individuals we do no injustice to others.
