--A letter, written by the Rev. A. A. Haines, pastor of a church in the interior of New York, to a soldier in the Federal army, was picked up on the battle-field. We copy a single paragraph:

The war news just now is very uninteresting. I fear our Generals are not qualified to make much Bradway, and with an our great army and navy, the South is as strong as ever. The English and French will perhaps take the part of the South in a few months, and then our poor country may be crushed before the combined efforts of her numerous foes. But God is our trust, and let us hope and pray we may have peace soon again, and all our dark apprehensions dissipated.
