Cmnc of lilt Fnllurc of I lie l.nte Move- iiinit ut Krrilc-i CAX? cr Tilt UiGHT DIVISION. A ttie I'otoujic, 23.) As I feared and staled when closing my last, the move-incnt which bepan so auspi- e-iously baa been entirely defeated by tbe unfortunate stale of the weather. From Tuesday at S o'clock until Thursday night, rain fell nlmost without intermission'. Tbe ror.ds on Tuesday, when Franklin and Hooker started, were very pood, and and uriillery could move with facility. Bui ruin se: ihem ini'bemr.d so incxlric.vbly ihnl the of the ar- my was all exhausted in getting to the po sitions ordered to be taken. It is really neces-ary to see our position io appreciate it. Our troops lay fur two days and ibree nights in mud and water, and to day mart-lied buck to iheirold camps ibough seas of mud. Let no one com- plain ibiu noibing was done. The move meut was intended ns asuipris'e thesiorm caught us, delayed and revei.led our in tentions to ihe enemy. Had we crossed we could not have advanced. We did the very best could bo done under 'he cir- and all we cnn do now is to wail for better weather, more ar.oth er movement, and better success. The poiui.t selected for crowing, all in the vicinity of Bttuks' ford, probably pos- sess more advantages acd less diacultits iti ibt) crossing than the poiuts choseoi at thu battle of Frederick-burg. So far as obstacles thrown in the w.iy by the enemy, such as redoubts, etc are con- cerned, thero vcre very few of them visi- ble. We have this for a month past by a rocimeut of infantry {the Kioih New York volunteers, Col. Wood) and a i-cMion of Wcidrich's New Vork ballery. The rebels have bad, opposile, Gen. Wil- brigade of Alabama troops, ruue-h re- duced iu f ireusib by their losses at Gaines' Mill aud Amit-isoi, under I.ongstrect. The approach io the ford from this side is rath- er precipitous, while the accent opposile ia gradual and over a cleared ground. Half way up ihe hill the enemy have a lino of :i6e-pits, from which they command tbe d.iru, but not the point where i'. was intend- ed to lay the poutoons for the center grand division. The pits were, however, com roanded by of onr batteries lower down so as to rake ihera wiih nn enfilading fire and ihem untenable. But one point could be discovered where onr bridge would be subject to the fire of the enemy's artille- ry, and iraverses were immediately con- structed on our side lo coraruatid The point selected for the crossing of the right urand division w.is by far tho roost rugged and dillicak of sny. But thU di- vision did uot leave camp a: all, and p.vi.-ivge the river depended enlirely up- on the operations of the left and center. So far as outward ev idances co to show, tbcrx; WAS no visible increase of ibe enemy'? forces at point. Thero are oo addition- al earthworks added to those that have been there tor three weeks, and no more troop? wtrc visible. Tbe illumination of our canip-rires was visible for two back 'rots ihe river, aod so would ibe enemy s- hava been bad they-been os near. We_can- not doubt they soon bccatse aware of our iuteutions, and, knowing if we crossed we rau'VsdVaiieo, selected some better position in the rear of iho river, masked their bAlto- rie3 und swivitt-d our coming. Perhaps they were soaiewhul befogged in rejard to our" real bat usually ihey are not. One thing is certain Whether they knew or they hsd few or co defenses ajainj! our cretin? at this ford which coald been available against tbe ope- ration of artillerv. Hooker would have I crossed a short distance above the bend, taking a road which rans down along the i river'bink from the I'nited States ford, wosld OAve moved bv the left along the river and across Golia Ren, and thence by the right acd front to s position oa the dink of the cr.eiy. -For :his parpos' oar artillery in bead was so planted as to the b.-Hge over Golio Rca; near its important point. ET-TT one wbota 1 hsve heard li-lmetit nriicles. They prcvenlcd ihe no- lice for a public meeting from being pub- lished in the local p'iper. They dogged the steps of these olh'cers through ibe sireets of ihe lown, and were he-live in off their recruits as if the traitors had been in tbe of Jeff. Davis. It ieek the repose nece-'sary to enable her to administer to bis comfort on the morrow, ere the itawn of which she was again sum- moned to the side of his couch to Gad bim dead. It seems lhat some lime daring ihe aight the nuts" in attendance observed some blood upon the counlerpane, asd upon immediate e-xamination foand that ihe wounded hmb wts bleeding profusely, which he attempted to slauncb by tieiog a handkerchief around it, but before he could accomplish it, so rapid was Ihe flow of blood, the gallant captain was no more. j Tbe remhius of Capt. Wallace were taken lo Cantoa by ihe bereaved wife, and buried on Thursday last, with military BVSUHlUCKtRS. After Shiloh I wen', lo Western Virginia, riding sometimes sixty or seventy miles a day ibrough the woods and open couniry. The woods were full of bushwhackers. There are more bushwhackers proporlion- fclely, in some parts of Western Virginia than elsewhere on iho border, and ihey are organized. There are Harper's bands, and ClilTord's mob, and Itnboden's band, nnd many of the smaller sort. A bushwhncker is the meanest roan alive. I ht.d ihree or four of ray men, and we passed ourselves off for buthwhacber.4, to get cleat of the rebel j; nnd by deceiving them got all ibe information we asked. STONtlVAI.I. JACKSON AXP ASDBT. I first saw Stonewall Jackson six miles above Strasburg, and ruacy times afterwards. as we moved along the valley. I hud a mn to shoot small Suiith A Wesson's rifle, weighing five and a bull" pounds, and capable of hittinj- at six to eight hundred yards. I could uot gel wbete he was; nnd another thing, i could not always toll who he was. In battle ha is always dressed like a private. He moves about everywhere in a Cgal. When he is on foot he is fine looku.g, but he rides wretchedly. But Ashby was a beautiful rider, and a man of great courage. I have hatl a good many shots tl Asbby. I urn sure I have hit him. lie often rododirccf- ly to tha front, and made n glorious mark but I could never bring him down. I sap- pose he hnd a breaslpltie on. Our scouis were often so close to the rebels in the march through the Shenaudoah lhat we were fired at by our own men, who thought belonged to the enemy. I destroyed the saltpetre works in Frank- lin, Va. I'he rebels arc well aware who did it, and have published me. is JACKSOX'S CAMP. While I was in Virginia, I was in Jack- son's army one night. Tbe only thing 1 did was to gel myself out again. I should- ered a rnuskel and pui tnv.self on a vijctte post. An officer approached and I chal- lenged him for ibe countersign. He ihought lhat I was a videlle and gave it to me. U hen I gave ihe counlcrsign lo the rebel pickets and was off. During ihe time I was with General Fremont, 1 was iu the rebel camps five or six times. A REBEL QCArtTCRMASTEr. I.V The reason why the general did uot go round by war of Franklin instead of by Strasburg, was because the rostU were all blockaded.

The speech, howevc- w.ll challen-o general a'.tcmior. ns a pro- duction of remarkable- vigor. Tho three marked points ol ihe speech were Con- quest impossible, compromise undesirabK-, separation inevitable. Mr. Shellaharger, of Ohio, made an elo- quent speech oa ihe general relations of tho republican nnd democraiic panics on the war nnd ihe crisis. Jt has stirred up peace democrats, like Allen of Illinois and Va! landigham, dreadfully. It is regarded ono of the strongest defenses of the repub lican party yet madn this season. An important result of tbo visit of thu Massachusetts delegation has becomo pah- lie today. Gov. Andrews bus received permission to raise negro troop? in Massa and muster them regularly inio the United states service. An order to this effect has already been issued. C. P. Wolcott, of Ohio, late Assistant Secretary of War, and lormeriy Atloruey General of Ohio, is lying very ill in New lork, and his friends begin to despair ol his recovery. WASIIIXCIOX, Jan. 27 Gens.
