Winchester, March 24, --11 o'clock P. M.--In consequence of the forward movement of our forces, the reports of the killed, wounded, and missing cannot be a courtesy ascertained, but it is estimated that our loss was 80 to 100 killed, among whom were one Colonel and fourteen Captains and Lieutenant. The London Times thinks the Federal victories will lead to separation and peace. During the fight at Winchester on Saturday, the Federal General Shields was struck by the fragment of a shell on his left arm, shattering the bone, and rendering amputation necessar
If we are not fighter. Lieu' Heth was a Stanton of Prince Poyden, formerly proprietor of the Estrange Hotel. In this city, and is remembered by many of our citizens. Agreement who was engaged in the fight arrived at the city yesterday evening, and from we obtain some fuller particulars. On Saturday morning a brush fight took place between the commands of Col. Ashby and Chas's Artillery, and the advance guard of the agency's forces. It is alleged that it was in this fight that Gen Shields was wounded. He was wounded in the arm, which was amputated after his return to Winchester. Gen. Banks had his horse shot under him. After the fight on Sunday the enemy retired to Winchester, and information from citizens who came out the next day states that they were engaged all night in bringing in their killed and wounded, which they admit to be not less than 1,500. Some even put it as high as 3,000. General Jackson in person headed five different charges, each time drivi
Federals, and leave no opportunity unimproved of making it as plain to them as possible. The ladies are especially violent in their insulting conduct, and frequent threats of punishing them are made by the Federal officers. The Federal General Shields was in Stafford, opposite Fredericksburg, when the news of Banks's defeat arrived, and he, too, hastened back with his division towards Winchester. McDowell's army, according to this account, has been much exaggerated. At no time, even with the reinforcements brought by Shields, did it number over forty thousand.--There anticipated a gay time in their "forward to Richmond," and had been promised they should certainly dine there on the first of June. Much murmuring and discontent was heard among the men when their destination was changed, and numbers of them were taking every opportunity of escaping.

The grand Yankee army. Secretary Cameron boasted that he had put 660,000 men in the field last winter. To this number 90,000 were afterwards added, making 750,000 in all. The Enquirer, of yesterday, makes an estimate, by which it reduces the number now in the field to 350,000, viz: 100,000 for McClellan, 100,000 for Halleck, 50,000 for Fremont, Shields, &c., and 100,000 for all other service. We doubt whether the Yankees have that number in the field by 50,000. The Enquirer, indeed, expresses the same doubt. And what has become of the rest? Where are the 400,000 or 500,000 that make up the difference? They must have been killed or taken, or have died of disease, or be sick in the hospitals. At this moment, we doubt not, our effective force actually in the field is larger than that of the Yankees. This war, hard as it has borns on us, has been immeasurably harder on them. There never was a more wasting struggle. The whole South is a perfect charnel house, paved with Yan
