re fossil remainders. Younger military writers have borrowed all of his system worth translating to our modern time, and have added thereto the fruits of a later and more enlarged experience. In this department of literature the South is pre-eminent. The efforts at publishing of late by Southern firms are of the most creditable kind. Books are gotten up in a style unsurpassed by Northern houses.--Among the military books lately issued none surpass Gilham's Manual, published by, West and Johnston, of this city, at 145 Main street. It is gotten up regardless of cost. Competent authority pronounces it an admirable book, shewing the soldier's art from Alpha to Omega. Among other books published by the same firm may be mentioned Cary's Bayonet Exercise, Lee's Volunteer's Hand-Book, Confederate States Army Regulations, Hardee's Tactic's, Mahan's Outpost Duty, School of the Guides, or the Practicing Soldier, Southern Military Manual, &c., &c. We saw yesterday, at the above publishing ho

A Manual of Military Surgery; or hints on the emergency of field, camp and hospital practice; by S. D. Gross, M. D. Augusta (Georgia) Chronicle and Sentinel office. Gillham's School of the Soldier, and school of the company, for infantry and rifle drill, Augusta, Georgia Bryan & Thompson. These are all small and convenient editions; for sale by J. W. Randolph. Manual of Instruction for the Volunteers and Militia of the Confederate States; by Colonel William Gillham, Instructor of Tactics in the Virginia Military Institute. Richmond: West & Johnston publishers. This book stands very high amongst military men. In noticing it we are gratified in being able to pronounce the printing of it as excellent — indeed, unsurpassable for a work of the kind. It is highly honorable to Southern art, and would be creditable to the typography of any country.

e certain that on Saturday evening there were six companies there, and we supposed they were there still. We were also confident they had a battery on the Maryland heights, and felt sure they would open upon us. Yet, in the face of all this, about one hundred and fifty gallant and brave boys, in broad daytime, marched into the streets of the town, and ventured far enough even to fire at them on the other side, killing or wounding several.--We have the pleasure to know that we were the first Southern soldiers to venture into the place after its evacuation by Johnston. Since Sunday, we have been scouting this entire country. I am confident there is not now a Federal soldier on this side the Potomac about here. They sometimes venture over in the night.

Of our further movements, I shall be pleased to inform you. A Soldier.
