the closeness of shots. But this is all one-sided, said Lieutenant Small. I have known imagination to work as powerfully with members of the profession as upon their patients. When the wounded were being brought into the churches of Leesburgh, friend and foe were accommodated alike with whatever we had, and the ladies were working like angels in various offices of mercy and kindness. Outside one of the churches a tent was raised for the reception of the dead. I sought for a poor fsidered dead. I procured some excellent whiskey for them, their faces were washed, more spirit was administered at proper intervals, food was given, and to the astonishment of all the doctors these two fellows were walking about the streets of Leesburgh in less than three days, comfortably smoking their pipes, or fighting their battles over again round the fire of the mess-rooms. I know, too, an instance of a young man who came off the field of Manassas, with a cloth tied over the top of his

He is a thorough soldier, and when commanding the Seventeenth Mississippi, drilled his battalion thrice a day through all the heat of summer, apparently enjoying the exercise more than any. At Leesburgh he led his regiment in the last charge, and drove many of the enemy into the river. He is a lawyer and politician of note in Mississippi, very careless of dress, and very blunt in his manner. Having received orders, Wilcox, Featherstone, and Pryor ride off at a gallop, and some prophesy that the advance will soon begin. Besides these and other generals, there are a few civilians present, chiefly land-owners in the neighborhood, who have come to see the havoc perpetrated by General Sy

At New-York this morning, on the receipt of Southern news, a bulletin was posted in front of the Journal of Commerce office, stating that the rebels were advancing on Baltimore by the way of Leesburgh. A crowd gathered in front of the board, and the probabilities of the truth of the rumor were noisily discussed. General McClellan and his movements were loudly criticised and defended by persons of different political views. The crowd continued to increase till the street was quite blockaded, when a squad of police appeared and the bulletin was removed, to prevent further disturbance.--The Ninth Massachusetts battery left Boston this afternoon for the seat of war.

ember, 1862, the Federal army under General Pope having been confounded, General Lee turned his columns toward the Potomac, with Stonewall Jackson in front. On the 5th of September Jackson crossed the Potomac at Whitens Ford, a few miles beyond Leesburg. The passage of the river by the troops marching in fours, well closed up, the laughing, shouting, and singing, as a brass band in front played Maryland, my Maryland, was a memorable experience. The Marylanders in the corps imparted much of th Potomac at White's Ford. Lieutenant Robert Healy, of the 55th Virginia, in Stonewall Jackson's command, tells the following incident of the march into Maryland: the day before the corps waded the Potomac at White's Ford, they marched through Leesburg, where an old lady with upraised hands, and with tears in her eyes exclaimed: the Lord bless your dirty ragged souls! Lieutenant Healy adds: Don't think we were any dirtier than the rest, but it was our luck to get the blessing. --Editors. the
