Already is thy great heart swelling and sending its hot currents to thy fleshing eyes and unfettered limbs. Blessed be God, she comes! she comes! How suspicious the hour! All things are now ready. Cope to the high attar of Liberty with your most precious offerings. Yours, A. B. C. P. S.--Fredericktown, (Md.) Monday, Sept. 8th, 1862--We crossed the Potomac Saturday night. Had to stand three hours in the river with our batteries, such was the crowded state of the ford — this was due also to bad management. We have come about fifteen miles into Maryland--have seen no enthusiasm for Southern Rights — not a white handkerchief from a window, though from the stateliness of some of the mansions there must be white handkerchiefs in them.

learn the exact disposition of the forces on our side. It turns out that the twenty pieces of artillery of which I spoke in my formes letter, occupied the centre and front with General Anderson's division; on our right was Longstreet, and left, Jackson. The fight was brought on by the artillery, and a few troops upon our right and left, all in sight of our batteries, and not more than 1,000 yards off. Of this there can be no mistake. If you will read the Yankee accounts you will see what a dy Gen. Leo. This, though a good position, and not command so extensive a view, especially towards the right, as did ours. A short time before the fight began in the afternoon, signals with white flags were made from headquarters on the hill to Jackson's position on the left, but of the nature of them we could know nothing. I supposed they indicated that the enemy was sending his forces towards our right, a movement which we had observed, and which, I think, must have been a feint. In re

e beast of the field! They are the best men of the land — of all classes, trades, and professions. Great God, reward their devotion to principle and justice by crowning their labors and sacrifices with Thy blessing, which always beingeth peace! I really think this must be the finest army in the world. There is an amount of individual bravery in it that the sun has never shone on before. Will we go into Maryland to day? To us 'tis a day of deep and solemn feeling. To the noble exiled Marylander tears alone can express the sentiment of the heart. We take our lives in our hands, sons of Virginia, and go into our sister State to lift the yoke from her neck. If her exiled children truly represent those left at home, let them be of good cheer, for their redemption and the redemption of Maryland draweth nigh. If not, your glory hath truly departed, and we can but leave you to hug the chains that bind thy once beautiful limbs. But we will not indulge such sad and unworthy suspicions

If you will read the Yankee accounts you will see what a different case they make of it. So soon as the six lines of battle on our immediate left were repulsed by the 20 pieces of artillery, and infantry in the woods, our whole line — fight, left, and centre — was ordered to advance, and
ered to advance, and they did advance in handsome style, sweeping everything before them.--The Yankee writers say not a word about loss of artillery, and yet they lost largely. I know of ten pieces, and yet my observations were confined to a very small part of the field. We have some of these pieces in our own battalion. Our position was the most commanding by far of any on the field as a place of observation. Another hill arose behind us and a little to our right, which was occupied by Gen. Leo. This, though a good position, and not command so extensive a view, especially towards the right, as did ours. A short time before the fight began in the afternoon, signals with white flags were made from headquarters on the hill to Jackson's position on the left, but of the nature of them we could know nothing.
