f company D, commanded the skirmishers. We have been unable to get a list of the privates killed and wounded. Many of our wounded were brought back into our lined by the Yankees, who ... by the Federals to pursue them. The falling back of Lee was orderly, and there was no straggling by men who were unhurt. Another account. Another account, which is derived from a young and gallant officer of the 1st Virginia infantry, states that the fighting on Friday was opened by artillery aeld of battle until he reached Winchester, he did not see a single straggler — a fact which folly controverts the Yankee stories of demoralization and disorganization. The first messiness he saw manifested with reference to the situation of Gen. Lee's army was on his arrival in Richmond, and not until then did he hear the slightest apprehension expressed of our ability, not only to hold our position, but to advance on the enemy when deemed advisable to do so.

as saved the life of the Republic, should have been finally accomplished on the day which gave the nation birth! The day that ushered in the glad findings that Mestle had defeated and expelled the rebel invaders from the free North, also witnessed the final enfranchisement of the great high way of the noble West! The battle field at Gettysburg. On Sunday night, says the Northern dispatches. Longstreet's headquarters were at Jack's Mountain, ten miles from Gettysburg. They add that Lee's wagon trains were crossing the Potomac. This, of course, is now known to be false. A letter from Gettysburg says: To day have we made a tour of inspection over the three separate spots in this neighborhood where the desperate engagements of the first, second and third days of July were held; one to the West of Gettysburg, back of the Seminary, another South of the same place, near the Emmetsburg road, and a third upon the Cemetery Hill. All exhibit the same evidence of the fea

Lee did not continue to hold those fortifications was solely due to the fact that they were in thatts the Yankees fled for protection precisely as they did to their gunboats at Malvern bill, and Gen. Lee withdrew his army for the same reason that he withdrew from the range of the gunboats fire. Thof their hiding places. The enormous encumbrance inflicted by these prisoners was one cause of Gen. Lee's retrograde match. Every officer who has spoken on the subject says that this movement was not determined by anything the Yankees had done or could do. Gen. Lee had won the ground and could have held it, but he chose, for military reasons, to fall back, after having utterly broken the backbonursued, as the Yankees falsely stated, for they were in no condition to pursue, and it was, in fact, the very thing that General Lee most of all desired. Meade seems to have gone to paris unknown.

From Gen. Lee's army. It is understood that dispatches were received by the Secretary of War from General Lee, on Saturday evening, but for some cause they have not been given to the public. Those familiar with their contents assure us however, that they are of the most cheering character, and speak of the condition of the army as but little impaired by the severe fighting at Gettysburg. Our losses there are acknowledged to have been heavy, but it is claimed that the victory rested with General Lee, on Saturday evening, but for some cause they have not been given to the public. Those familiar with their contents assure us however, that they are of the most cheering character, and speak of the condition of the army as but little impaired by the severe fighting at Gettysburg. Our losses there are acknowledged to have been heavy, but it is claimed that the victory rested with our arms up to the time of the retirement of our forces. The fights of the two first days are represented to have been very decidedly in our favor, while on the third day our troops stormed the first line of the enemy and carried his works, which were found untenable without subjecting the army to a lots not justified by the results to be attained. The retirement of the army was effected in most admirable order, and was not interrupted by the enemy, as is alleged in the Northern-journals.

ysburg will hereafter take rank amongst the celebrated battles of the world, from the numbers engaged, the obstinacy of the contest, and the loss of men. The Yankees, in places, fought with desperation, having been persuaded by their officers that Lee was fighting under the black flag. In one instance, after we had a brigade surrounded, they refused to surrender, and our troops were compelled to massacre six hundred of them before the remainder would ground their arms. The prisoners said theydriven three miles, with the loss of an immense number of prisoners. I have gathered no particulars of this day's engagement.--Gen. Anderson passed through town this morning, but stopped only a very short time, and I did not see him. He said that Lee would hold his position. Anderson's brigade lost heavily. I have been unable to learn the named of the officers killed. It is stated that Col. Burgwyn, of North Carolina, was killed, and also Captain West in command of the 6th North Carolina.
But one report has prevailed however, of the proceeding Saturday and Sunday, and all who have left the field since Saturday morning agree in the statement. Such is the uniformity in this that it is believed to be reliable. The report is that Gen. Lee, desiring to draw the enemy from his strong position on the mountain and avoid an unnecessary sacrifice of his men in taking it by stores, effected a retreat towards the Potomac, proceeded by his wagon trains. The Yankees, ving it a genuine falhin sight of Washington, and intercepted and captured about $480 wagons and 1,100 mules. The destruction of our pontoon bridge below Williamsport was owing to carelessness. It was guarded by an inadequate body of men, and they without arms. Lee, however, seems to have little use for it at present. The following is a partial list of officers killed: Col. V, D Groner, 61st Va. (reported;) Adj't Campbell, 8th Miss; Col. H R Miller, Miss; Col. Smith, 55th N C; Col. Edmonds, 58th Va. Ca
Winchester, July 9th. Of the rumor I mentioned in my last, concurring the successful road of Gen. Lee at Gettysburg, Sunday--the cutting off of a large number of prisoners, the capture of the fortified mountains, &c.--there is no positive confirmation or denial. The disadvantages of our position may be understood by saying it was decidedly worse than the respective positions of the hostile forces at the first battle of Fredericksburg reversed. It is generally believed and conceded tminds of the people of Pennsylvania for peace. According to latest intelligence there has been no fighting since Sunday. A seemingly well authenticated report prevails, to the effect that the enemy are falling back towards Washington, and that Gen. Lee's force, at various points, is moving in the same direction. Another great pitch battle will be fought soon, and that on the soil of Maryland, of which I hope to be wholly or in part an eye-witness. Detachments (several hundred strong) of
