To your correspondent it assumed tbe eharac ter . f a day lost and a day won. A day lost not by neg lect of our army or corps oommanders, but a day tost by physical causes, and a day won by the quick preceptton and prompt action of a popular military chief. It is said everything has its counterpart, and in the cue of tbe ksttie of the 19tb we and tbe fhet verified. rag positions Bironc tui butts. The position of our army prior to tbe attack of tbe 19th tost, may bs stated thns:?Our line of'battle?it may be so termed?extended over a lino of about four mites, over ? rolling territory of commanding hills, ravines and small runs, our left resting on the north fork of tbe Shenan doah river, and in an Irregular line crossing the truburg and Winchester pike, conforming itself to tbe i\ zag con formation of Cedar creek. Tbe ramps of our uoops were made to cover, and on the weetern slcpes of the billa. tbe Army or West Virginia, Major General Crook com manding, occupied tbat portion of the line from the Shenandoah to the Siraeburg pike; tbe Nineteenth army corps, Major General Emory, tbe centre of tbe line, ?xtcndlng from tbe pike to tbe Sixth csrpv, and the right ?f our line wu composed of tbe letter corps, under ?sjor General Wright. Tbe front of General Crook's aaminand was lortifled, u also a portion of the Nine leentb army corp>. Tbe irent of tbe Sixth corps wu not forliQ.'d. In our position tbe troops were encsmi ed in two lines, ready for any emergency. The cavalry dm ?ions of Generals Custer and Merrltt were on tbe right or (he Sixth corps, and occupied, in part, a position on the west of Cedar creek and covering the middle road, which runs parallel wltb North Mountain. As all points our position was m ids to conform to tbe topography and hatural advantages of the country. Tbe improvtmeni* m our camp by fortifying, and tbe impregnability of our position, seemed to bo an admitted fact, but do relaxa tion of vigilance on tbe part or tbs corps commanders was allowed.

Tbe troops felt their way carefully through tho woods, by paths and along tbe atruburg pike until tbey reached the crest of a bill having a commanding view of StrM knrg and vicinity, during the advance meet ng with no Impeding circumstance*. The party advanced to a position six miles from camp.

Beyood tbs town a few rebel cavalry vtdeltce were obseived. Alter remaining there a law hours the party returned to c.tup w,tb idi im pression that It the enemy had not retreated they were well concealed behind Fisher's Hlil end Koi.nd Top Mountain. The piAtets In front of our camp ware numerous and vigilant; hut in Ibe sight, or rather early sa tbe following morning (tbe 19th), a mountain fog i* mist prevailed to tbat it was diffitu I to observe a figure Standing race'4 I'mue.

OartraI Kerebaw, like bis commanding general, bad a rspslKllon to redeem, and, ?? a matter of lavor, be asked Ikat his divis.on might be allowed the prtsilege to ex saute the flank movtment on tbs left of our position. FVom Struburg he followed the track of the Maausaa Dap Railroad, which runs along the base of Manneaaulieo Mountain, and marched until be reached a ford in tbe par of the tort line of our works. He then croaaed the Berth (ork of tbe Shenandoah, formed bis troops si a right angle w Itb our line of battle, and extended bla line to run parallel with tbo Struburg pike. This wu all accomplished without alarming our pickets and under savor of toe fog. Pan,lei to tbe enemy 's line, in tbe saar of General Crook's c mmand, was a provisional divi sion of our troops, sader Col. Kitcbso, of in* Bulb New York heavy artillery.

Tbe commands of Generals Greyer, Barge, and Acting Briga dier Generals McCauley and Moltneaux kept tbeir orgaui rations entire, but moved to the rear until General Emory, tbc corps commander, selected a place to form line or battle.

General Wright, of the Sixth corpa, in tbe abeence of Caneral Sheridan, assumed command of the army, turn ing bis own command over to Brig. Can. Rickelta. As soon ae tbe alarm waa given be hastened to tbe point of at tack, learned its natare, and waa nut long In deciding what means were necessary to save tbe army from a to tal defeat. Tbe Sixth corps up thin time occupied It* camp to tbe right and in a line almoet parallel to the 1 Straaburg pike, its left resting in tbe rear of the point gained by tbe rebels. He ordered tbe corps to change position and form line of battle at right angles with tbe pike, tbe left resting near Mlddietowo. The ground ovar wblcb the troops engaged was rolling, consisting of dense woods, sorghum fields and cleared ground. All tbe time tbese movements were being exe cuted the enemy were advancing and pouring a deadly artillery and musketry Arc on our ranks. Tbe Nineteenth corps tben formed on the right of tbe Sixth corps, and tbe Army of West Virginia, whiob had received lbs shock of tbe first attack from tbe enemy, were rallied by General (Took and formed tbe lelt of our positioo. In tbe rally ing of General Croak's troops one of bis staff, Captain 1'. S. Biers, Assistant Adjutant General, met bis deatb. Tbe enemy seemed to think tbe prestige of success in tbeir favor and pushed forward in tripple columns of attack, with an impetuosity and apparent desperation saldoin witnessed on a field of battle. TUB ATTACK OX Ott LIVE Or BATTLD. Our line of battle was not fully formed before ibe rebels were in close range, and in aelf-defcnce General Wrigbt ordered tbe main action to commence Tbe Sixth and Nineteenth tben opened fire on the reoela, and wttb good effect. Tbe enemy's advance was cheeked aud ibe engagement became general. Gordon's rebel division now occupied tbe rigbt of tbe enemy's line, Kershaw's next, Wbarton s ana Rumseur's ana other commanders still Turiber to tbe left. General Early superintended the formation of his line of battte. Tbe enemy soon pressed tbe left of our line, sod forced It back until be gained a positioo on the north side of Middletowo. His men were secured by stone walls, and bis artillery, wblcb waa nu merous, fired uDder cover of woods to tbe left of the town. In tbe retreat from our camps tba Nineteenth corpa lost a portion of Us camp equipage. Colonel Tnoburn, com manding First drWBlon of Crook's corps, waa mortally wounded nt-.r Middletowp while rallying bis men. Gen. Bicketts, commanding Sixth corps, wu wounded early In tbs action. CIVIBAL 8HTO1DAK ARRIVES. Tbe battle continued, with no abatement, until half past ten o'clock A. M., when General Sheridan reached tbe field from bis trip to Washington. Be came into ac tion wub a small escort, and his horse in a heavy per ?pirallon, bavins come on a dead run for a distance of thirteen miles At be retched tbs left of onr line of bat tle, and bis presence was known, tbs troops made tbe air reverberate with cbeers. This testing went like an electric wave through tbe ranks. As be passed be spoke confidently to bis subordinate commanders and troops. To use tbe words of an officer engaged In tbe action, General Sheridan's arrival was equal to a rein forccment of twenty thousand veteran troops. He at once conferred with General Wright, fuily commending the latter s d aposition of the troops, and sent orders to the other corps comrusnders to advance and reoccupy tdeir old cam,-*. The fighting was continued w.ib obsti nacy ou both sides, charge and countercharges of in lautry lines were made, the report of artillery was in cessaut, aud tbe air was filled with tbe ooise of whiz/ ing shells and the whir of Mime bullets. Tbe report Of musketry fire was never surpassed. It loomed to roll ID ] loud waves of sound, and continued till the close of tbe engagement, with only slight intervals, when our troops were advancing. Toe robels would press our right, tben our centre and then too whole line; but our Iront wis solid and irap'einab e. ORMtAI. SHKSIPAV MOTM O* THE SLAVIC. In ibe middle of thealternoon General Sheridan deter mined to make a fltnk mjveraeui on tbe enemy's rigbt, ooar Vhddletowo, aud for tbm purpose tnefietoud division of tbe Stxtb corps. General Getty, was selected, sup ported by tbe S.-cond division of tbe Army of Weuero Vir.ima. Our troops formed in three lines, one of attack and two of support, directly In front of the town of Mld diotown. On tne slopes of tbs co mmanding hills two batteries of tbe Firth Called States artillery were posted, while tbe ,-lxib New York battery occupied a position still further to tbe left. General Merritt a fitvi sion of cavalry occupied a position on tbe left of our infantry line, aud were doing good service dur ing tne entire day. Tba time for tba cbarga ar rived. General Sheridan was la tbe rear of the third lino, and wkeo tbe word forward waa given on weut our troops lo solid mass. The eosmy soon opened a heavy firs of musketry and artillery, and for a moment it seemed Incredible that our troops cos Id withstand It. For a moment tbsy faltered, but a fow words of encouragement irons tbeir commander* sent tnem forward wub a about. The Nineteenth, on tbe right, and tbe Sixth corpe were not idle.

The rebels fell upon the Eighth corps so unexpectedly and witb so much fury, only a feeble and Ineffectual re sistance could be made; and I am aorry to say that the Eighth corpe, which la truly a noble one, was utterly routed, sod the man fled from the enemy in all directions In the utmost disorder.

KRAGOI.IRB RmRNRD TO TBI FRONT. General Devin'a brigade was engaged ror several houra In driving back the stragglers; in fact, tba road and fleJds between tliirtown and Mlddletown was literally swarm ing with tbem. Until about four o'clock in the afternoon the rebela bold tbe town, and showed no inclination to give up a aingla foot of tbe ground, although our skir mishers were atubbornly contesting the way with tbem, and our batteries rrotn a number or tolerably good ele vations kept up an almost cuostant Ore of abol and shall. THS ENEMY COMMRNOB TO TlgLD. General Marritt at last threw bis division oat on tba left of tba pike and massed It between that and a heavy forest of oaks in tbs hollows among tba bills. Lowell's brigade was a littlo in advance. Martin's battery vw in position close up to the edge of tbe woods, and^holled tbo enemy's skirmishers and batteries ror a long time m a splendid manner. Taylor's battery was in position nasr Martin's, a little to tbo rigbt. At about four o'clock in tbe afteroooD, wben the Sixth corps charged Ibe enemy oa tbe right of tbe pike, Merrttt's dlvlBlon charged on tba left,while Custer, who waa engaging the enemy on the right of tbe Sixth corps, also charged h.m. Wbeo this charge was made, tbe enemy concentrated such a heavy fire of musketry ana artillery that our line was broken id places, and wa were checked and obliged to retire a raw hundred yards to reform. But little time waa lost in forming a new line, and another charge was ordered. Tba boys went in in splendid stylo; to fact the Second di vision of tbo Sixth corps did its best. Our line of cavalry and infantry swept down oa tbo enemy witb aa Impe tuosity which nothing could resit!. Tbe enemy wars driven from tbelr position in a burry, and so promptly followed that It waa quite impossible for tbem to halt and rally tbelr routed line, for our men were so closely upon their beela that to halt waa to be captured or bayonelted Tbey were driven ont of Mlddletown and across tba .country (awards Strasburg. We followed tbem up m line tor some distance. Before reaching Cedar creek, however, we broke tato oo!umn,tbe Mxtb corps follow log up tbe pike, while Gen. Derm's brigade, witb that of Col. Lowell, followed up on tbe left tbrougb Ibe open fields. Custer was still pasbing tbem back on tbe right with bis division. In tbe charge Custer's division made in connection with tba Sixth corps be completely abattered tbe leri of tba rebel line, wbich was tbe brat actual advantage we bad gained, and did much towards securing us tba ultimate victory. COLONEL LOWSL1. MORTALLY WOODtD. In tbe charge made by Merrill's division upon tba rebel battery and line of battle on iba left, Colonel Lowell, comasandltig toe regular brigade, received a mortal wound in tbe spme. Be was a young officer of most distinguished bravery, and tbsre la no doubt but ha would have been made a brigadier general soon bid bla lira baan spared Wheo dying be said be bad notbing to regret save that bo could no longer serve bis country.

Sucb aa attempt could not have succeeded, aa tbe .'?Ixtb corpa batteries followed ao '-Ibsoiy as to keep tbem under a coustant Art. Tba regu lar hngade did not follow up very far before ii waa or dered back. At tba bridge over Cedar creek the rebe s made a faint attempt to bold ua In cbeck, but it was a luliieone.

He was often seen watching the enemy wbUe exposed to tbe hot last part of their Ore. So encomium either la sufflclent to express tbe ex* treme gallantry and soldierly conduct of Generals Msrrllt and Coster, nor tbe masterly manner In which they handled their respective divisions. They are both heroes. coimvriTTOji or tub ptaacir. It an early hoar thla morning?Thursday, the 30th?the eavalry corpe was again In motion. Colonel 1'owell cap tured fourteen pieces of cannon which the enemy had drtvan Into tbe mountains on the left of tho valley. I will remark In this connection that Powell's division had bean too far on the left to tabe any very active pert in tbe engagement or tbe prevloas day. Tbe brut brigado of Merritt'e division was Powell's right, but I cannot learn that it was engaged to any oxtent. We foUowed up the pita as far as Woodstock, and found the way thickly atrawn with arms, be., which the enemy bad thrown away. HALT AT WOODSTOCK. jU Woodstock tbe column was baited and ranted for a short time, and then we returned towards Strashurg ?gain. Strong flanking parlies were thrown out on cither aide of the pike to pick up tbe atragglera that wore skulk log slong tbe sides of tho mountains. A considerable number were picked up; but, night coming on, we could not seo them In the darkness. Had it been day wheu we returned we must bave captured tbsm by hundreds, as the country was full of them. We wont into camp for tbe night between Thorn's brook and Fisher's Hill. OAKPAIUSINU in ran valut. ForHbe last few weeks campaigning in the valley baa been really delightful, with the exception of Wdlona marches and ocwas local foul weather. The forests are now in the "sear and yellow leal" of autumn, and the face of the country, notwithstanding its having been ravaged by war, la truly beautiful. TBS WRATHXU. The waatber has been very Sue for some days, al though the froat bites very sharply' of nights and bivou acking is anything but comfortable. Wa are having what is called the Indian summer?tbe best possible weather while it lasts; hut lbs autumnal rains must soon set 10, which will neceeaarlly impend all military opera tions. TBK VIEWS or rKISOgXM. 1 bave conversed with many of tba prisoners wa hare captured, and thnrs seems to be hut one opinion among them. They art all vary anxious for peace. They say that If our government would only let them come back and hava lbs rights they had before tho war they would all bo glad to throw down tbatr arms. But thty have been told, and the most of them believe, that we wlab to keep tbem la eternal subjection, and lbs most of tbe mis guided creatures are lighting, they think, to tree them selves from vassalage. This belief is Instilled Into their minds by both the press and the pulpit. After such discouraging reverses as the rebels have met with in tba valley, it is reasonable to suppose that they will not bev foolhardy enough to offlrr battle to General Sheridan again, '[he idea that a rebel army can not exist In the valley slacs tlia burning of the gram and forage la all gammon. They brought any quantity of Boor and meat with tbem, and Issued very large quantl ties of those articles to the oeady citizens. However, if they are very anxious to redeem the valley, I presume Generals Sheridan and Torbert will be only too happy to meet aoy "new savior" they may send to meat tbem. TARTlAL LIST 0T ?ABCALT im.

It is without a shadow of foundation, and 13 believed to be purely gratuitous with Its author.
