MIL EDITOR: -,-- Though the "mehmcholly
dap?' have passed, and the hoar frosts of win
ter should be upon us, yet the weather wain
nes delightful, and the atmosphere is mild and
balmy. It is now as warm and clear as a :May
day in our clime, and the bright moon- sheds as
mellow a light as ever illuminated the beantit
fat night of that land of romance and love, fair
Italy. Indeed, this favorable freak of nature is
exceedingly beneficial not only to the personal
comfort but to the health of the brave boys now
in the field, and it is a pleasant reflection that
the hand of Him who rules thedestinies 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 Mends,
living in peace and plenty at home, surrounded
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 claim 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
before,daylight was a scene of bustle and syste
matic confusion, and rumors of a chance for a
skirmish with the rebels being circulated, our
boys were in a glorious mood. Though surpris
ed at the order, as all bad anticipated spending
a portion of our 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. The genial, in
vigorating rays of the morning sun served to
brighten the general joy and hiliarity which
prevailed, and every preparation being made,
we awaited witiv 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,
and will in all probability in a few days begin
erecting our winter quarters.
Our proximity to Frederick renders our win-.
tering here very pleasant in every respect, save
the inducements for the clandestine introduc

rigorous measures to suppress tr, - and - a - tanored

crackers are musty and the pork half spoiled,
and to deprive them of an opportunity of
spending a portion of their hard-earned mew,
in such luxuries as they may desire, is unjust
and uncalled for. It is mistaken philanthro

The detachment from Gen. McCall's division
winch took part in the battle, did not arrive at
Drainesville until about noon and remained
there till about half past two o'clock, when the
enemy appeared in force coming from the di
rection of Centreville. Previous to this Gen.
Ord had placed his foroe in position to repel an
anticipated attack. The fire was first opened
by the rebel battery throwing solid shot, shell
and canister. This was immediately responded
to by Easton's battery with marked effect. The
infantry on both sides soon engaged in the con
flict, and at times they were not more than sixty
yards apart. After fighting about an hour, a
shell from our side exploded the ammunition
of one of the rebel's caissons, making fearful
havoc. Three of the rebels having their headi
blown completely off and others being horribly
mutilated. At this time the enemy wavered
and showed a disposition to run; when General
Ord gave the command to charge which was
gallantly obeyed, and 'at °hoe the rebels pre
cipitately fled. They were pursued for upward
of a mile, when Gen. McCall arriving on the
ground ordered a recall to be sounded. Our
troops then fell back to the position vacated by

there was a larger number of killed on the part
of the rebels than was supposed. Three of the
prisoners who had become bewildered in the re
treat came up to one of our regiments, not
knowing that they were federal troops, and in
quired the direction to Centreville, but instead
of being taken prisoners they were shown the
way to Washington.
The victory on the part of our troops is con
sidered the more brilliant as they had never be

complimented both by Major General McClel

FOur companies of the First Pennsylvania
Cavalry were also with the brigade, but the
condition of the country was such, being thickly
wooded, that they could?not render service to
the extent they desired.
