urg, Sept. 24. As it seems many contradictory opinions prevail in regard to the fight at Sharpsburg, on the 17th inst, I think it may not prove altogether uninteresting to some of your readers totomac. At daybreak we encountered Longstreet's corps coming into the main road that leads to Sharpsburg and the ford at Shepherdstown, and the artillery and infantry moved on together. At about 10 e, and took position on some hills south of the town; but in an hour thereafter we moved on to Sharpsburg, a few miles further, and were posted on the hills south of this village. This town lies . But the sun arose in all his glory, and still no sound of war was heard. The country about Sharpsburg is exceedingly beautiful — the farm houses and farms in the best condition. As the day were o elevated positions would think beneath their notice. As to the question who won the fight at Sharpsburg, I think it cannot be said that any division was arrived at: It was a "drawn fight;" but, acco
f Lincoln, through his proclamation suspending habeas corpus, does not succeed in keeping down the public will. The. "Neatness" of rebel retreat — Scenes after the battle — the dead. A correspondent of the New York Tribune, writing from Sharpsburg, on the 19th inst., says: Notwithstanding the rapidity with which the chase was conducted, we have caught but few of the running rebels.

You will remember it was exposed for several hours on Wednesday evening to furious shelling by Burnside's artillery. The terrible effects of his s
Yankee lying. A Yankee Surgeon is reported to have said at Washington that he had assisted to bury 3,000 rebels at Sharpsburg, and that when he he left 600 were still left unburied. A letter writer to the Tribune says that they took more prisoners in the battle and pursuit than than they lost at Harper's Ferry, and the same writer in the same letter says they lost 14,500 at the latter place. Dug Wallack estimates our killed, wounded, and missing at 50,000.--Why he did not say 100,000, we are left to conjecture. Other writers represent the wounded of Gen. Lee's army as having all fallen into the hands of McClellan. These monstrous lies cannot impose even upon the Yankees, who love to be deceived almost as well as they love to lie. They will excite in Europe, the market for which they are intended, nothing but the most unqualified derision. If we have been thus badly beaten, why is no use made of the victory? Why has not McClellan crossed the river and destroyed the army
