Many here are glad of it. January 31 It rained moderately last night, and is cooler this morning. But the worst portion of the winter is over. The pigeons of my neighbor are busy hunting straws in my yard for their nests. They do no injury to the garden, as they never scratch. The shower causes my turnips to present a fresher appearance, for they were suffering for moisture. The buds of the cherry trees have perceptibly swollen during the warm weather.

After crossing the Potomac, it was a continual whirl of events. At Crampton's Gap supporting the Manly artillery, of North Carolina, and they did some good shooting at the enemy coming through Middletown. We could not get at them. Lower down the mountain we saw the lofty and lovely fight that Cobb's men put up. About night we were outflanked and nearly surrounded. A night's march somewhere, to Harper's Ferry, I believe; then a march to Monocacy Bridge; arrived a few hours after the fight; through Frederick City; a hard day's march; at 9 P. M. we bivouac in a wheat field. I remember the heavy dew and how wet we were. At daybreak on the march again. About 1 A. M. we unsling knapsacks, pile them in a field, and leave guard with them; every man fills up his canteen; forward, march, dou<

(via Mobile, 15th,) --Gen. Johnston sent a flag of truce to-day to Gen. Grant, asking permission to bury the Yankee dead in front of our works. General Grant asked permission to send assistance, in order that the dead might be recognized, which was refused. The terms originally proposed were then agreed to. Our troops have been engaged all the afternoon burying the dead Yankees. The exact number is not yet ascertained. The Yankee officer in charge of the flag admits a loss of four to five hundred. Among their killed and wounded are Col. Earl, Lieut. Col. Long, and Capt. Hall, of the 41st Illinois; Lieuts. S. Smith and McMasters, of the 53d Illinois, and Lieut. Abernathy, of the 3d Iowa. Among the officers on our side are Major Lamb, of the 29th Georgia, killed; Lieuts. C. C. Braden, of the 19th Louisiana, T. J. Rust, of the 4th Florida, and B. A. James, of the Cobb battery, wounded. The time specified in the truce passed before the burying was finished.
