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
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
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
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.

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

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

every qualification to lead and to control men.

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

Notwithstanding the foregoing tacts ar< kuown to
