This guard was established ; .vm'.-r !, 1R()2, and was stationed between 1 i rfV: rninary and Alexandria; about one tn. f froin the former and one and a half miles f:, ni The latter place. Our company consists (f ,i ii-tail of a non-coaimission and fivc pri v) from each of the following regiments: :v Bith, Kith, Mth.lSth and 10th Vermont ; ' '2i and 27th Maine ; the l.'ilst Penn .ilv.inia ; and the 3flth,ll lth,12.th and 116th New York. Our duties were to arrest all -r;iiri;lfi"3 and deserters from the army ; to ,irret all dealers in contraband goods and ii'iDM, and to maintain law and ordcr gen en.lv throughout this division. Our usual metlioil was to send out several squads each ihy in ditU'rent directions to seek out the of-ft-nler and h'ing them to justice. We were iiN comm.m-k'd by Major E. W.

Mr. goes tofprove that whenour troops firt land ed on the peninsula the fdrce of the enemy there consisted of Magruder's conimand, va riously estimated at from 7000 to 12,000 men, except by General McClellan, who es tlmates it from 15,000 to 20,000. The Hon. Lemuel J. Btiwden, United Stales Sentor from Virginia then living within the rebel lines, near Williamsburg testifies that the rebels did not determine to reinforce Magru der until it was apparent that our forces in tended to stop before Yorktown and com mence a regular siege of the place. It is now evident, whatever may have been the opinion of our officers at the time, that our forces, when they first appeared before York town, could have pierced the line of works across the peninsula there without much difficulty, isolauug Yorktowc, and cultiug off reinforcements, when the place must have fallen in a very short time. Some of our generals expected and desired that that should be done. A letter from the Prei?ident to Gen Mc Clellan, st on after the latter'a arrival at For tress Monroe, says that the GeneraVs esti- mate of his forccj is 25,000 less than that sent an aosiract ot its matenal pomts. the Chesaneake. un the PnnBhnncV to TTr- ..u. r. v c (. j ' i ---I t j kiKcu irum uis qwh reiurns uy iuv ocltciiuv iatiti. tiiiu tiLiu.A iiinii iii ii f i frnii riii v rtr inu 1 ! t" r .,1 uranuegee oi tne ju is nuite vounsr, dui is " . -i j,i. tAt Tr -.. ioi war ments oi a somier in tne neiu. ln tne third ' " . , , ' . ,, , nr . .i: . ,i... ,i.

A letter from the army of the Potomac says : " The army has increased some lately, not by enlistment, not by conscription, but by birth. A soldier in one of the Wisconsin regiments, who has been in every battle that the regiment has been in since they came into the service, was taken suddenly'ill the other morning ; a surgeon was called, and this soldier gave birth to a child. I have not learned whether the recruit was a male or female." Every young man has a fine season in life when he will accept no oSce, and every young woman has the same inhers when she will accept no husband; by-and-by they bolh change, and perhaps accept each other. Adoitting that horse-races improve the breed of horses, it may be a fair queslion whether they improve the breed of men.
