Latest from the North. We have received New York papers of the 20th inst. It is evident that the Federal do not know where Gen. Lee's army is, though the Herald, in its situation article, says McClellan has driven it across the Potomac. The same paper thinks the "seventeen days campaign" of McClellan has never been excelledenemy. Deserters report that the recent movement of the rebels in escaping into Virginia was entirely conducted by Stonewall Jackson, the other chief officers, Lee, Longstreet, &c., being either wounded or too much fatigued to be efficient. They also state that it was believed in the rebel army that a force of Union troophe obstructions from the river below, a single gunboat will enable him to hold the city. Best of all, his prompt occupation of Richmond will leave the fragments of Lee's army no place of refuge, and they will be dispersed. With Virginia thus completely liberated, and reinstated under the "old flag," the work of recovering Nor
The army. The public is still in a fog with regard to the army; perhaps before this issue shall go to press we shall have something more definite. In the meantime it seems to be clearly established, that only a division or two have been withdrawn from the other side of the Potomac, for the purpose of resisting a contemplated movement by Burnside upon our communications at Harper's Ferry. The most credible account we have been able to collect, represents Gen. Lee as having thoroughly repulsed McClellan on the 17th, as having pursued him on the 18th, and having defeated him again on the 19th, (Friday.) This account receives confirmation from McClellan's bulletin, claiming a great victory. His victories always result in "a change of base." It is strange that our community should have been so much excited by the lying reports of the Yankee papers, and the lying bulletins of McClellan. They had experienced enough of both while McClellan was below Richmond. Not a skirmish occ
From Gen. Lee's army — another victory on Saturday. The news received yesterday fully satisfies us that the army under General Lee re-crossed the Potomac, on Friday last, and is now on the South bank of the river. The reports heretofore received and which we were inclined to credit, that only a portion of the army had recrossed, prove to have been not well founded. From gentlemen who arrived last evening from the immediate presence of the army, we are assured that the whole column crosseGeneral Lee re-crossed the Potomac, on Friday last, and is now on the South bank of the river. The reports heretofore received and which we were inclined to credit, that only a portion of the army had recrossed, prove to have been not well founded. From gentlemen who arrived last evening from the immediate presence of the army, we are assured that the whole column crossed, and the crossing was effected without the slightest attempt of the enemy to obstruct our passage. Of the desperate and bloody battle of Wednesday, in the vicinity of Sharpsburg, we have very few additional particulars. Hon. A. R. Boteler, who participated in the fight as an aid of General Jackson, arrived here last night. He represents the engagement as resulting decidedly in our favor and the victory obtained by our forces, if not complete, at least great and satisfactory. He left t

Arrival of Yankee prisoners. --Five men belonging to the 1st Maryland cavalry, (a Yankee regiment,) captured in Maryland by Gen. Lee's forces, on the 10th inst., were brought to Richmond on the Central train last evening. They were lodged in the Libby prison. The train that is due this evening will bring down from the Culpeper C. H. hospital, sixty-six Yankees, who have been remaining there since the engagement near that place. There are several officers in the lot, and the following Surgeons, viz: J. F. Day, 10th Maryland regiment; E. S. Bissell, 5th Conn.; A. M. Heller, 28th N. Y.; John B. Coover, Assistant Surgeon, 46th Penn. They will be sent home from this point.
