FROM THE UPPER POTOMAC.
SANDY nom, Md., Jan. 80.
Since the retreat of the rebels from Bolivar,
the weather has been too foggy to observe their
movements. A heavy snow storm prevails this
morning.. It is known that our shells on Tues
day were not without effect, and several were
killed and wounded. The enemy's shells were
harmless. There are no signs of the weather
clearing at at present.
THE BATTLE OF WEBB s Caoss ROADS.—The
place where Gen. Zolliceffer was defeated and
killed, is known through southern Kentucky as
Webb's Cross Roads, and the battle should be
called by that name. Mill.Springa is nearly
ten miles distant, and on the ether side of the
Cumberland river. A part of the engagement
took place in a field known, in the neighbor
hood as " the OA Fie d," and tenets the sug
gestion that the battle should be called the bat
tle of Old Fields. But there is no doubt that
" Webb's Cross Roads" is the place that should
give name to the battle.
•Ihe official statement made by Gen. 'Thomas
that one hundred and fourteen rebels had been
buried, up to a Certain hour, has led the pub
lic, prone to expect exaggeration, to believe
that the figure.represented. the extent of the
loss of the enemy in killed. We are, however,
assured from sources that we believe entirely
reliable; that not less tuan three hundred reb
els were left dead on the grour.d. The official
report of Gen. Schoepfs Brigade Surgeon states
that one , hundred and ninety dead rebels wens
buried on Monday. A gentleman of this city
writes that two hundred and eighty-three dead
bodies of rebels were found. Another who
was on the ground, informs us that he counted
eighty-five dead rebels in the old field, and
that they were lying thick in the underurush
in every direction. We are convinced that the
rebel loss in killed was very nearly if not alto
gether three hundred.. Various statements are
made of the number of horsasand mules taken.
The evidence is that at least fifteen hunared
fell into our hands.—Cineinnati Commercial.
A BRILLIANT FASHION has just made its ap
.pearance in the progressive city of. New York,
which bids fair to outshine Paris in its lustre
and extravagance. The San says that a short
rime since a prominent resident of that oily of
wealth and fashion, conceived the brilliant idea
of having his front teeth set with diamonds. He
conferred on the subject with two of his friends,
one of whom was a lady of literary celebrity,
and all were so well pleased with the novel
idea that they had large and valuable first wa
ter diamonds set into tueir front teeth, and on
Sunday afternoon they attended one of the
mabt fashionable churches on Fifth avenue,
where they attracted considerable notice, and
diverted the attention of a large portion_ot the
congregation by the lustrous rays of their teeth.
On their return home, they were followed by a
crowd of persons, wiles attention and ciariosity
were attracted by the datzling radiance of the
brilliant eircle. If this fashion is adopted,
jewellers, lapidaries and dentists 'will rerp an
abundant harvest. 'Verily, the world moves.
A GIENTLEMAN who has recently made his way
from Memphis, and whose character was such
that his statements are considered trustworthy,
states that United States treasury notts com
mand thirty per cent. premium in the "South
ern Confederacy." They are equivalent to
gold, and much sought after. 'This is a signi
ficant fact. The rebels have a wholesome red
spect for the credit of the United States, glow
ing that they are not bereft of financial!under
standing. Some persons in the loyal States
might learn a 'useful lesson from the apprecia
tion of the promises to pay of- oar government,
by those who are warring against it.
