Our army correspondence. the route to Winchester--President Davis--the battle-field — the soldiers on the way — Female heroism — Affairs in Maryland--a charge on Jackson's staff — the living in Maryland, &c., &c. Winchester, Sept. 15th, 1862. If I knew what news you are in possession of — If I only had four file up to date — I would know better how and what to write. As it is.
