The desertions from the Confederate army.

--A Northern paper noticing the exaggerated reports of description from the Confederate army, says:

‘ A Detroit paper mentions a gentleman of a statistical turn of mind, who has kept a careful record of the desertions from the rebel army since the first Bull Run, as they have been reported in the journals from time to time, and the sum total shows that three millions and three hundred thousand rebel soldiers have abandoned the Confederacy and come within our lines.
