WHT GIN. MIIADII DID NOT FIGHT.—We

seat from a letter written by a brave and
Illigent young officer from this city in the
Ith regiment :
Gen. Meade is to day more .popular than
bad went within five miles of Richmond,
'ten had to fall back with the lose of
valuable lives. The General was beard
Gen. Warren if he could take that line
, rks (meaning , those behind which Lee'e
was entrenched.) Warren replied : "Yes,
I shall lose 16,000 lives." As we did not
rapt to storm them, we know what Meade
ught of it. I sappose we are now good
winter quarters. If you hear any person
nbling because Meade did not storm those
t.l, or because he does not move, just tell
these two lilt's incidents, Which I saw
my own eyes. One poor fellow in the
N. Y. was wounded on the skirmish line,
could not be got off
within hearing of both our lines and the
mien, until literally frozen to death, and
man that was wounded in the hated in the
'ieh here came in with the blood running
.ne ends of hie fingers in, long icicles.
other man belonging to our regiment had
o feet badly frozen," while we were out
terrible night, and .1 hear theta man was
sally frozen - to death, on that line'. Such,
war! Men can face bullets and the can
but when they have 'to run the chances
ing wounded snd frozen to death it takes
tat deal of ,courage out of him."

MINT.--Capt. E. C. Wilson; Assistant Quarter.:
master at this post, has, at his own request,
been relieved from duty, and Capt. X. C.
Beichenbach, who his for some time past
been on duty as Quartermaster at Reading,
has been appointed iu his stead. Of the new
incumbent we know little, but bear him
highly spoken of by those have come in
contact with hint.?
Capt.. Wilson has held the position of A. Q.
M. at this post almost front the commence
ment of the rebellion ltis, without doubt.
the most important quartermaster's post In
the whole country, acid rio office ontaide of
Washington has had a heavier or more eaten
sive business to transact than that of Capt.
Wilson— a fact which becomes evident when
we consider that 'it occupies the converging
point of till the grest Northern avenues to
Washington. atiti.also foinse the depot of sup
plies to the Cumberland Valley. The super
intendence of this immense transportation,
forage and equipment business, which has
heretofore been so promptly and carefully at
telded in by Capt Wilson,, assisted by an
able Itlld efficient clerical corps, now devolves
cpen Capt. Relabel/bash, in consequence of
the ilt.health of his predecessor.
es, The 'ollowing extract from s letter
Writieu by a soldier in the army to one of onr
friendsiu Albion, was handed to lle several
months ago, but having been mislaid war not
published before. We owe an analogy -to the
gentleman for not having it appear sooner.—
Says the soldier :
"•I believe if the President had done as he
promised McClellan, we would have gone into
Richmond last summer. I see by nearly every
paper I get, that the people of the North are
down on McClellan, but they. will see some•
time who is to blame for our failure on the
Peninsula. Theta is one thing . l. notice the
Abolition journals never say. The army think
more of him than any General that has ever
commanded it; but those papers know it is
so, if they know anything at all."
ea. The, weather during the past week
has been se a general thing, extremely cold.
That of Wednesday, in our opinion, was
more severe than any we experienced during,
the *hole of last winter. On Sunday morn
ing-the Bar was frozen over for the first time
this season, and the ice has attained a pee s
feet!) , safe skating thickness. As soon as the
Weather moderates a little, we may expect to
see it covered with merry skaters of both
sexes. On Friday •night, a considerable
amount of snow fell, making fair sleighing in
the city, but the "owls in the country bad
been so much. cut up previously, as to make
the travelling very difficult. -
'WI. A boy named May; son of Mr. May, the
news dealer, who was employed at selling pa
pers on the cars of the Phila. & Erie It. it.,
met with a serious accident at Warren, on
Saturday evening. lie attempted to jump from
one car to another, after they had been un
coupled, and while they were still in motion.
Failing to do so, be fell between the two cars,
breaking one of his legs. Therear car passed
entirely over him, but fortunately he lay in
suolta position that he suffered no farther in
jury. The faritily are poor and deserve the
sympathy and aid - of the public,

their proffers of amnesty the 'Continental
Congress ,always assisted in' giving their
