Correspondence of the Presv. Letter from the Rappahannock. 2i> Division, 2l> Coups near Fai.voith, ( Va., Dec. 24. 1862. ) Tp-day Gen. Sumner has reviewed this ar my Cwj,Si at present commanded by Gen. Howard. Gen. Couch, whose cousitution has long been crumbled, was unable to boar up uii der the extra f»*irue and anxiety connected with the recent citing of the river and as- \ sault upon the enemy, WOrks. He hopes af ter a respite of a lew dajv^to return again to duty; it is the general belies that lie will not i come back to the corps. It has been a mild, pleasant day, H'itii a few clouds flitting above, and the giOwyl not frozen. Gen. Sumner, with a full staff, arrived at corps headquarters at about 11 A. M. Gen. Howard and staff, with officers from the staffs of Gens. Couch and Sedgwick—tlie latter hav ing arrived from Washington this morning— then accompanied him in tlie review first of the 2d Division, including its artillery; next of French’s Division, (3d) now commanded by Brig. Gen. Sully; and finally of Hancock’s, (1st) and tlie two reserve batteries of the corps. This Division was drawn up in brigade lines, upon the grouud where they would form in case of an attack. Gen. Sumner addressed some inquiry or other remurk to eacli com mander of a regiment, and in a few instances spoke to the regiments themselves; thus, to the 7th Michigan, which was the first to enter Fredericksburg, having crossed in boats sub ject to tlie galling fire of the rebels concealed in houses and rifle-pits, he addressed a few words of commendation. Observing the tat tered condition of the flags of Hall's Iirigudc, he told them they deserved new ones, that those might be kept as honorable mementoes of what the regiment had passed through. Tlie lttth Maine appeared well, showing in line 642 muskets. The energetic Lieut. Col onel (Heath) was in command. Col. Sewall be ing off duty from physical indisposition. Gen. Sumner seemed to give an inspection rather than a review, riding lietween the ranks of each regiment as they stood at open arms. The 4th Ohio lia^ but 34 men in line, all there are remaining of that gallaut regimeut. The flag of the 8th Ohio was stained with the blood of tlie brave color-bearer, who was killed while carrying it in tlie recent action. The General complimented highly Hazard’s R. I. Battery of the Division, which compelled the admiration of all wiio saw it near tlie close ofthe battle of Saturday, 13th inst., when it took up position by the direction ol'Gen. Upw ard, within close rauge of tlie stone wall from which tlie rebels had kept up an incessant and deadly tire all day, and jioured upon it such a terrific storm as to silence their fire for a time, though uot till it had lost 16 men and several horses. The reiiels declared afterwards, un der the flag of truce, that nothing did so much execution as this artillery practice; and had the troops ol'Gen. Hooker, then comparative ly fresh upon the field, taken advantage jff the lull In tlie firing and rushed vigorously for ward, it is probable they would have curried the first line. Gen. Sumner bad an exact account taken of the number of men in line to-day. Before the review was completed Gen. Bum side came up witli his staff. He then rode along with Gens. Sumner and Howard upon either side, until all the troops had been vis ited. Of course there was lusty cheering at his presence. He rode as usual his powerful ooo-taueu, ony Horse, wore lliehat wnli droop ing brim, a plain citizen’s overcoat,ami seemed in everything to avoid display. The General is apparently cheerful, and un doubtedly will retain the command of this ar my. Few if any officers or men desire a change at present. It Is publicly known that Sige) lias joined the army here. And it is said that Slocum’s corps are part at Dumfries and part ut Fairfax Court House. If the rebels should push for Washington via Orange <Sr Alexandria Ilail road it would necessitate a sudden and rapid movement of at least a portion of this army. To-night is the eve of Merry Christmas. Very little merriment in the low, cold shelter tents, or even in the log huts, dark and un clean. Vet the soldiers who have finished their log houses are comfortable, and nature has kindly furnished contented and cheerful hearts, generally, to those who are conscious they are in the line of duty and making self sacrifices for the salvation of their fatherland. Before the end of another week tiic army will haVeall the winter quarters tbeyueed—wheth er they dwell in them lor weeks and mouths of bid them a hasty adieu. Thu greater part of the wounded, after great suffering, have been transported to Wash ington. W. Correspondence of the Tress. Letter from the Twenty-Fifth Maine. Camp “Tom Casey,” Abunotos I HeAhts, Va., Dec. 28, 1862. ) This leaves the 25th iu the same old “one horse town” of Arlington, doing the same dai ly routine of duties as heretofore,—inarching through turnpike road to Long Bridge, and back throu ill turnpike road to camp. We do not expect to make a forward move ment this winter, but there are others who do. I learned yesterday, from an officer of high military rauk, iu Washington, that with an effective army of 170,000 men at the front, Gen. Burnside would make another attack within three weeks from this. I tiling he will. The 25th is now established as the nucleus of anew brigade, and rumor says that the 27th Maine has been ordered hack to their old en campment at tills place, to join the brigade. Col. Frank Fessenden is now|Acting Brigadiei General. God Mess him; lie has done inucl for the 25th, and through them has elicited ma ny compliments for the brave old State. Toe health of the regiment is improving and as the time required for acclimating lias passed, we ueed not fear much more sickness, especially as the men are in comfortable quar ters, w hich latter feature is of itself “one half of the battle.” The regiment is daily subject ed to “knapsack drill,” that the men may ac quire tlie strength necessary to “tote” their packs upon a march. j The recent appointment by the Governor, of ! Sergt. Mai. G. O. Gotse, of Portland, to tlie po j sitlon of 2d Lieutenant, has given immense sat isfaction to the line officers. Lieut. Gosse is peculiarly and naturally a soldier; cool, delib erate and iinintpassioued, he certainly posesses every qualification to lead and to control men. I cannot close without saying a word com mendatory of our excellent and hard working ! chaplain, Mr. Furbish. Ever ready and zval J ous in his calling, to admonish and comfort, lie lias been found by tlie bedside of tlie sick 1 and dying, laboring with all the affection of a a brother, to soothe the departingspirit.checr iug up the depressed and lonely, and bestow i ing kindness and smiles through the wards of the hospitals. j Tne weather for the past week has been of ! a cheerful spring-like nature, revivifying to all, j'in fact too warm. Think of that, ye shivering souls of Maine. Why, our boys would like to e*|H*rience a touch below zero, if only to make their blankets feel warm. Wishing you. gyn i tlemen, and your host of readers, a “Happy Xew Year,” I subscribe myself Ever yours, A. The Importance of One Mile.—By con structing a canal alioul three-fourths of a mile in length, Irmn Big Stone Lake to Lake Tra vel'. steamboats from St Paul could navigate both the Minnesota and the Bed river of.the North to Lake Winnepeg, a distance of seven hundred miles. The country traversed by these rivers is surpassingly fertile’and capable of sustaining a dense population. Lake Win nipeg is larger than Lake Ontario,and receives the Sas-katch-a-wan river from the west. The Sas-katcli-a-wan river is navigable to a point (Edmonton House) near the liocky Mountains, seven hundred miles west of Lake Winnipeg, and only one hundred and lilty miles wett ol tin* celebrated gold diggings on Fraser river, in British Columbia. The digging of that one mile of cjpial would therefore enable a steamboat at Xew Orleans to pass into Lake Winnipeg, and from thence to Edmonton House, some 5000 miles. A bill has been introduced into tlie Senate which makes provision for the building of the canal. Probably in the world there cannot be found a spot across which the digging of so short a canal would effect a result so prodigious. And what is almost equally remarkable, the ground between the two lakes is so low, and so level, that, It is said, the water flows in time of freshets from one to the other.—[Washington Chronicle. 1ST E "WfiAOQs PATTERNS !

IGNORANt EOF QUACK DOCTORS AND NOS TRUM MAKERS. Through the^ignorance of the Quack Doctor.kuow ing no other remedy, he relies upon Mercury, and gives it to all his patients iu pills, d up*, he., so the Nostrum Maker, equally ignorant, adds to hie so called Extiacts, Specific. Antidote, he., both relying upon its effects in curing a tew in a hundred, it is truui|>eted in various ways throughout the laud; but alas 1 nothing is said of the balance: some of whom die, others grow worse, and are left to Huger and suf fer for mouths or years, until relieved or cured, if i possible, by competeut physicians. BUT ALL QUACKS ARE NOT IGNORANT. Notwithstanding the foregoing tacts ar< kuown to some quack doctois and nostrum makers,yet, regard less of the life and health of others, there are those j among them who will even perjure themselves, con tradicting giving mercury to their patieuts, or that it is contained in their Nostrums, so that the “u»ual fee” may be obtained tor professedly cuiiug, or “the dollar” or "fraction of it” may be obtained for the Nostrum It IS thus that many aie deceived also,and uselessly spend large amounts for experiments with i quackery.
