sition with changing fortune until night when he was reinforced by Longstreet's division. The next day the fight was renewed, and the heavy columns of McClellan driven three three miles from the battle-field. The troops under Gen. Hill are said to have suffered considerably, but our loss is thought to be heavier in prisoners than in killed and wounded. The Federal loss is also said to have been terribly heavy. Col. Francis H. Smith, in a letter to Governor Letcher under date of the 16th inst., writes of this battle as follows: It is reported that an engagement took place near Boonsboro. It is said the enemy were repulsed twice, with a loss of 5,000 in killed and wounded. Our loss was heavy. Our troops fell back towards the Potomac from reasons that can be easily conjectured, Jackson will now recross the Potomac at Harper's Ferry, circumvent the enemy, if he has had the temerity to follow our advanced corps, and we shall capture or disperse the whole concern.--God grant
