om Frederick via Boonesboro' to Williamsport. Just in sight of Boonesboro', the whole army stopped to camp and cook rations. As usual, several soldiers made their way on to town in search of something good to eat. No danger was apprehended. Gen. Jackson and staff rode on in front, not dreaming of danger; but just as they had reached the centre of the town Capt. Russell's company made a dash upon them and the straggling soldiers. I saw the cloud of dust, but could not for a moment divine its nemy. The number wounded was extremely large compared with those killed. The Confederates held the field for more than a day to bury their dead, and they fell back this side of the river. Saturday evening the enemy attempted to cross, but Jackson mowed down whole columns of them in the river. Two brigades, I understand, had crossed before he attacked them, but were soon driven back, many of them finding a watery grave before reaching the opposite shore. Our army is increasing every
can a drawing on stone be printed from? I would say that the limits of a newspaper article will not permit me to explain. This style of engraving is not adapted to works or subjects of small requiring a high style of art; but for works of large size it is well adapted, as may be seen in lithographs by the French artists, who probably excel all others in this style of engraving. Some of their productions are perfect gems of art. The cheap, gandy, colored daubs so ! common — such as Gen Jackson at the battle of New Orleans, Bonaparte crossing the Alps, (when you are momentarily looking for him to fall over backwards.) death of Gen. Washington, and a host of others, are the production of Yankee lithographers, (not artists) These are colored with an abundance of red, blue, and yellow, after they are printed. The stones from which lithographic pictures are taken cannot be duplicated perfectly, although I have seen a statement in the newspapers, within a few months, that Messr

No material injury can result to the public from this reticence. What is concealed from our people finds little chance of making its way to the enemy. There is general confidence felt and expressed in the management of military affairs, and whatever movement is made will have the sanction and support of the people. Our latest accounts concur in the report that the Yankees have not attempted to recross the Potomac since they were so mercilessly slaughtered by Gen. Jackson, at Shepherdstown on Saturday. Our pickets as late as Tuesday extended to the neighborhood of Harper's Ferry. It is not probable that they will attempt to cross again for the present. Winchester is represented as being rapidly disgorged of the stragglers who have made the town a kind of rendezvous since our army first entered Maryland.
