From the upper Potomac water communication out off between Washington and the coal region of Maryland. Lynchever, Dec. 23. --The editor of the Republican, of this city, has been furnished with a private letter, dated at Honeywood Estate, on the Potomac river, on Friday last. The letter states that General Jackson, with Ewell's brigade, left Winchester on the 16th inst., and on reaching the river succeeded in destroying dam No. 5. which is a feeder to the Chesapeake and Ohio canal. By the destruction of this splendid stone dam, water communication is cut off between Washington and the coal region of Maryland; and the Federal Capital is thus reduced to the greatest straits. The only casualties to our troops was the death of a private in the 27th Virginia regiment, whose name the writer did not obtain.
