d two o'clock, I was ordered, with several other batteries under the charge of Gen. J. E. B. Stewart, on the extreme left, so as to drive the Yankees from a position which our forces had vainly tried repeatedly to do several times before. At this point we learned a large portion of their reserved artillery, of large calibre, were massed, and the enemy having been driven from the heights we were to occupy, they had been enabled to ascertain the distance and to get the range. However. Gen. Stuart, soon ordered the rifle pieces of Capts. Brockenborough, Raine, Prague, and Turner, to take positions, and soon we were thundering with our eight pieces at the Yankee batteries and forces, which were massed in large numbers in rear of their batteries. Presently they opened fire, with how many pieces it is impossible to say; but almost every second a bomb would burst over our heads and among us, and we found it difficult to get the men to work the guns, and I had to take hold of the trail
Saturday the Union troops were constantly arriving by the roads on either side of the Maryland Heights. The Heights themselves were occupied, and artillery placed in position there in the course of the afternoon, so as to command the Ferry, and the national banner again waves upon the fortifications. The town of Harper's Ferry was not destroyed or molested by the rebels, or the citizens disturbed. From the headquarters of M'Clellan — the Federal losses at Sharpsburg, &c.

Since last Saturday we must have more than made up for our loss at Harper's Ferry in prisoners. Among the rebel wounded we have about 200 officers--three wounded Colonels, and the rest Majors, Captains, and Lieutenants. I have conversed with many of them and have not found one who does not admit a severe defeat to their arms. They say that if Longstreet and Stuart had fought as Jackson they would have completely routed our army. Longstreet promised Gen. Lee to hold the stone bridge at all hazards, but did not do it, and suffered a terrible defeat at the hands of General Burnside. But their successful retreat is the subject of great congratulation among these rebel officers. "When you make retreats," said one of them to me to-day, "we always obtain quartermaster and commissary stores enough to supply us a month, but I doubt if you obtain enough from
