him until night set in and stopped the contest for the day, thus ending one of the greatest and most sanguinary battles of modern times, and, I believe, decidedly in our favor. We then held all the battle field except the centre, which was in the same place it was at the commencement, neither having any advantage there. The next day, Thursday, everything was quiet, our forces too much exhausted to renew the contest, and the Yankees afraid to do so. We rested all day. During the day Gen. McClellan sent in a flag of truce and asked permission to bury his dead, but Gen. Lee did not grant it, for the reason, I suppose, that he was fixing to retreat back across the river at night, which we accomplished most successfully during the whole of that night and 9 o'clock in the morning. We had scarcely got the last cannon on the hill at Shepherdstown when the Yankees opened upon us from the opposite bank of the Potomac, but with no effect, for all was now safe. The Purcell Battery,
The truth of history. We stated the other day that the European public would not believe McClellan's telegrams touching the paper victory at Sharpsburg, and that the London Times would sift his statements to the bottom as soon as they came to hand. That we were not far wrong, the facility with which it extracted the truth frthe conspicuous falsehood that they had saved all their material, and all their guns except a few taken in battle." This passage proves pretty clearly that McClellan's lies do not impose upon the people in England. At least, they do not impose upon the London Times. But we subjoin another paragraph, which is even more pointThey cannot recall to life the hundred thousand Yankees who lie buried in the swamps of the Chickahominy, or the low grounds of James river, nor can they restore McClellan to his position around Richmond. But they are baleful, inasmuch as they falsify history and render its teaching a subject of distrust.--The Yankees are already
The "On to Richmond Again." The Northern press continues to urge that McClellan shall once more proceed to Richmond, and insists that the road is now fully open for that purpose. They profess to believe that he can readily advance by Gordonsville, though if such an attempt is really designed, it would most probably be by the river. The New York Herald, in particular, often foreshadows the proceedings of the Federal Generals, and it may possibly be right in the present instance. The enemy are watched vigilantly by our Generals, who have never yet failed in fathoming their real purposes, and wherever they intend to strike will probably be ready to repel them.
ellan crossing into Virginia. A dispatch, dated Harrisburg, the 23d, says McClellan is rapidly marching into Virginia by way of Williamsport. It adds: Genport, on Monday. Gen. Franklin's corps was to follow immediately. Gen. McClellan and staff were at Williamsport actively engaged in superintending the crossventured into Maryland, except those killed, wounded and taken prisoners by Gen. McClellan, and those who deserted, who, by the by, themselves are believed to number . We presume that it will be some days before movements of both armies — McClellan's and the rebels — commence to develop the plans of the balance of this fall'ems to be laid entirely at the door of the General commanding the corps. General McClellan had no intention of crossing the river at that time in force, and was, I respondent of the Baltimore American States, that at Sharpsburg, on Friday, Gen. McClellan met the guide who conducted the cavalry force from Harper's Ferry, and enab
on last night there was positively great opposition to Gen. McClellan--so great an opposition, indeed, that there were only o Altoona for the sole purpose of securing the removal of McClellan and the appointment of Fremont; but were defeated by the the people of his State believed it to be a victory; that McClellan had saved the State from invasion, and that it would be h. There is reason to believe that with this view General McClellan was consulted in reference to the proclamation before the relations subsisting between General Halleck and General McClellan, it is well to state that they are in complete accord, and that McClellan will be sustained by General Halleck in his effort to crush and destroy the rebel army he has just drive The Baltimore American, of the 25th, says: Gen. McClellan is actively engaged in arranging his forces to countere in the highest spirits, and that their confidence in Gen. McClellan, and his ability to lead them to renewed triumphs, is
eneral Burnside was offered the command of the Army of the Potomac, but declined in favor of Gen. McClellan.--Gen. Richardson's wound has proved to be mortal. Gens. Dana and Hooker will recover. Theere was severe fighting at some of the different fords by which Lee crossed his army, in which McClellan attacked the enemy wherever he found them on this side, and was met by rebel troops stationed tomac. The battles of last week prove that the rebel army cannot contend successfully with McClellan's present force in that quarter; and as he is hourly gaining accessions, Lee will not fight hifor his transportation and his line of communication with his base. As we have no idea that Gen. McClellan will thus afford Lee the opportunity to select his own time, place, and circumstance for the of the rebel plan of invading Maryland and Pennsylvania, and therefore soon hope to hear that McClellan is rapidly shifting the line of his operations to some point where he will not have a rear lin
