We think it apparent, too, that General Lee had concentrated the bulk of his forces in or near this ng up the enemy, and that in all probability the remnants of Lee's Maryland liberating army will be gathered up on the banks h valley. But what of that division of his army left by General Lee on the Virginia side of the Potomac, scattered along froseventy-five to one hundred and fifty thousand men — that Gen. Lee's army column in Maryland was at least one hundred thousation, while Gen. McClellan is pushing after the main army of Lee up the Shenandoah Valley, this column of our reserves from W for the country has now the right to demand that no part of Lee's army, from either side of the Potomac, shall ever go back
From the army of the Potomac.--on Fleeting reports as to its whereabouts. We confess ourselves at a loss to determine the precise locality of our army under Gen. Lee. The reports received yesterday are to contradictory in their nature, that in the absence of any official statement, we know not whether the army of the Confederacy is on the Northern or Southern bank of the Potomac. In our issue of yesterday, we stated upon the general reports that but reached us, that our forces had recrossed the Potomac at Shepherdstown and Williamsport, subsequent to the battle of Wednesday. Later information, however, leads us to question this statement, made upon the authority of those who seemed to be conversant with the fact, and we now have reason to believe that only a portion of our forces have left Maryland, and that portion for a specific purpose. Of the fight of Wednesday, which was doubtless one of the most desperate and bloody of the whole war, we know but little, but that little

Lee having come up, removed the two corps to a position in the rear at Sharpsburg that Monday and Tuesday were spent in cannonading at long taw; that on Wednesday a general battle was fought, in which Gen. Lee obtained a decided advantage; and that on Thursday evening, perfectly at his leisure, he withdrew his army across the Potomac, with out being molested by the enemy. This last fact is sufficient to prove that he could not at least have been very badly beaten; for the Yankee papers, anti was evident, then, that he had gone off, in the night. Had either sneaked off Berkley fashion, or had with drawn to operate on some other portion of our line. Gen. Lee believed he had passed his flank, to make a movement on Harper's Ferry and get in his rear. He resolved to anticipate him. He therefore fell back to a position

Johnston and Beauregard had so far recovered as to be able to resume active duty; that the Confederate at my in Virginia, east of Petersburg, under command of Generals Lee, Johnston, Longstreet and Jackson, numbers about 200,000 men, including more than 400 pieces of well-appointed field artillery under General Pendleton, and 10,000 splendidly mounted and efficiently armed cavalry under Generals Stuart and FitzhFitzhugh Lee; that the Confederate army are in fine condition, arching upon the enemy and anxious to meet and give them battle on any fair field; that no one in or out of the army doubted the result; that Generals Beauregard, Bragg, Price and Kirby Smith were at the head of 150,000 infantry and artillery and 12,000 cavalry, in supporting distance of each other in North Alabama, East Tennessee and Southeastern Kentucky, marching to the front and rear of Buell's and Grant's armies, supposed to number l

He had so arranged that General Longstreet, with his command, held "young Napoleon" in check McClellan, with the abrupt Blue Ridge mountain behind him. On the west side of the Antletam lay Gen. Lee's army, with high mountains rising in his rear. The battle commenced on Tuesday afternoon,s are over, or whether this is to be the end, for this season, of our trans. Potomac campaign, Gen. Lee knows, but not I. If this is to be the end for the present, the two weeks across the Potomabury their dead and our men mixed with them and conversed freely; that he supposed the reason General Lee recrossed the Potomac was to rest and get his men in better condition, as many of them had maour supplies, it was not prudent to remain on the other side; that be had every confidence in General Lee and all our Generals; that the withdrawal from Maryland is only temporary, and that she must
