Our army correspondence.the battle of Sharpsburg letter from Winchester. Camp Near. Sept. 21. Having participated in the battle of Sharpsburg, in various positions, for nearly the whole day, I have thought a brief history of the doings of that day, which came under my observation, would be interesting to your readers. I take pleasure in giving them. After the taking of Harper's Ferry, Jackson's old division, to which our battery is attached, under Gen. Starke's brigade, was ordered to march, and, after marching from 11 o'clock at night and crossing the Potomac during the day, we landed at the battle-field just at dusk, and as the Yankees were driving in our pickets, and before we could get to our position, a terrific fire of shell was opened upon our brigade and batteries, which were then moving along slowly. I will here premise and state that nearly all speak of the Yankee line of battle as assuming the shape of a capital A, but my own impression was, that it was

It will, to a certain extent, bring the black labor on the extensive grain farms of the West, unless the existing stringent laws of some of the Western States, confining the negro to his present geographical position, are adopted in all the other free States.

Without tents, in many cases without shoes or blankets, the present position of the rebel army would be very uncomfortable should a cold rain occur. With present weather overcoats and blankets are almost indispensable at night. A summary of the late great battles — the rebels not yet Crushed — the Federal army still on the defensive. A letter to the New York Tribune, dated Sharpsburg, Md., Sept. 21, congratulates the North that not "an armed rebel treads the soil of Maryland." The Federal army, however, is represented as still being on the defensive. The correspondent acknowledges that the fighting in Maryland hasn't been very advantageous to the Federal, but still it might have been much worse. He says: True, we have not crushed or annihilated the rebel army, as many have demanded of the commanding General; but we have whipped him upon ground admirably selected by himself,
