Gen Lee's losses. A statement was made in some of the Yankee newspapers, apparently upon the authority of Gen. Meade, that Gen. Lee's losses in the battle of Gettysburg amounted to 33,000 men! A more monstrous falsehood was never published even in a Yankee newspaper. It contradicts itself, and is so plainly contradicted byat a single man of his army was allowed to cross the Potomac? Why was it not pursued sword in hand, and either killed or captured by the innumerable cavalry which Meade had at hand? Why did the Yankees first leave the field of battle, and leave it in possession of an army which had suffered so much? Why was Gen. Lee allowed to w would occasion the destruction of any army under 100,000 men strong, in such weather as we have had, and in the face of a force numerically so superior as that of Meade's. It would have been routed beyond the possibility of rallying. It would have dissolved like a snow wreath in the warm rains of Spring. It would have become tot

Lee's army is reported to be pushing on as rapidly as possible towards Culpeper, and will probably
From Northern Virginia. The intelligence which we receive from our forces now operating on the Northern border of the State is exceedingly meagre. We have nothing really definite or satisfactory as to the present location of our army, and only rumors with reference to the movements of the enemy. Some of the passengers who came down on the Central train yesterday evening assert positively that the main body of Meade's forces has crossed the Potomac at different fords east of the mountains, whilst others maintain that there is no considerable force of the enemy on the South side of the river, and that they have only their cavalry on the Virginia side. Between these conflicting statements it is difficult to arrive at the truth.
