Our Glorious Soldiers. An intelligent gentleman, who was an eye witness of the late battle near Fredericksburg, says that highly as the efficiency of Gen. Lee's army had been extolled, nothing he had heard came up to the impression produced on his mind by his own observation of their conduct.

There were about seven hundred pounds of powder in the mill at the time of the explosion. The mill was owned by a company, but was mortgaged to the State for $10,000, the State having advanced that amount to enable the erection of the works.
