°Axe NEAR FREenicac,
WZDNISSDAY, Dec. 18, 1861
Roma: -- Though - the "melancholly
days" have passed, and the hoar frosts of win

ues delightful, and the atmosphere is mild and
balmy. Ittils f/Oklif Sys ZEI 1F49 14 1t4

fat night °irk's*, land of romance and love, fair

exceedingly beneficial not only. to the personal
comfort but to the health of the brave boysnow
in the field, and it is a pleasant iefiection'tfiat
the hand of Him who rules the destinies of na
tions is manifest in all. We sincerely trust the
weather may continue, and that the "Christ
mas dinner" may be eaten in the open air be
neath the clear blue sky, should our friends,
living in peace and plenty, at home, sun ounded
by every comfort, give a substantial evidence of
their sympathy and encourageMent, by sending
us one. Having gone forth in response to the
call of our country, with our lives in our hands
to battle for the liberties of all,.we have sacri
ficed the comforts of home, but not the ties and
rights, and therefore claimi at least an equal
share of the "Christmas gifts." Don't forget
This morning the reville sounded at an early
hour, orders to march were issued, three day's
rations were hurredly cooked, the camp long
bdore daylight was a scene of bustle and syste
matic confusion, and. rumors of a 'Ome n for
skirmish with therebels being 'circhlatek 'our
boys were in a glorious mood. Though surpris
ed at the order, as all bad anticipated spendirrg
a portion of stair winter here, yet 'they greatly
preferred the toil of a march and the hardship
of a bivouac, with the prospect of a "brush,
to leading the monotonous life of camp duty so
far from any apparent danger. ' Tire genird, in=
vigorating rays of the morning sun served to
brighten the general joy and hilarity which
prevailed, and every preparation being made,
we awaited with eagerness the order to "strike
tents." But, alas for the mutability of early
hopes, the orders were countermanded, and we
have again settled down to the usual routine' i
and will in all probability in a few days be
erecting our winter quarters.
Our proximity to Frederick renders our win
tering here , very pleasant in every respect, save i
the inducements for the clandestine ntroduc•
tion of liquor into camp by a set of,..unprinci
pled larpies, who _bang like carrion around our
camp. Col. Knipe haa, ..however, instituted

of being taken prisoners they were shown the

The victory on the part of oar troops is con

craplitnented both by Major General McClel

Four companies of the First Pennsylvania
Cavalry were also with the brigade, but the
