Rebel prisoners assert that Lee ordered all his wounded men able to hold a musket to take their places in the ranks again for to-day's battle. Our entire losses thus far, in killed, wounded, missing, &c, must reach near 40,000. The enemy's loss in killed is much greater than ours ; his wounded about the same. He is sup posed to hold some 2,000 of our prisoners, and we must have at least 5,000 of his men. We crossed the river Poon Tuesday, but with drew. We charged across it again the samo I night, after the enemy had weakened his right In order to mass all his force on our right. It was the Vermont brigade which charged the enemy at the rifle pits, and the 3d Vermont held them till midnight, when Gen. Meado recalled Thus far we have not lost a gun since tho second day at the Wilderness, nor a single wagon, since the campaign opened. [The tenor of the correspondence from which I we culled the particulars of our army move ments up to Tuesday having been interrupted, we concluded t...

LOCAL AND PERSONAL ITEMS. The Intelligence of a Command, like that of a community, cannot be estimated more ac curately in any other way than by the amount of reading matter consumed by its members, and adopting this as a criterion, we may safely say that Company A, Maine Coast Guards, is entitled to pre-ominence, in evidence of which we cite the fact that fifty out of one hundred of its members subscribed for the Soldiers' Jour nal. It was recruited in Hancock and Waldo counties, and organized at Salam, Me., in March last, under ordres from the War Department, authorizing the formation of a Coast Guard to consist of four companies, this, as the letter in dicates, being the first company to respond to the order. Its officers consist of Captain Charles Baker, formerly of the 26th Maine, who has seen service under Gen. Banks in the Department of the Gulf; First Lieutenant C. A. Barker, who participated, as a member of the 6th Mass., in Gen. Peck's Suffolk campaign; Second Lieuten ant,...

Weitzel's division of the 18th Army Corps drove the enemy down the pike leading from the landing. The 25th Massachusetts, of Gen. Hickman's brigade, suffered severely. The rebs were also punished badly, and thirty of their dead were counted in walking as many feet front of tho gallant Ist Brigade, 2nd Division. The prisoners captured were mostly of South Carolina regi- j inents, and had never done duty before out of the State. The best families of South Carolina were here represented. The cannonading, at times heavy, lulled occa- j sionally, although after dark firing was heard along the line, and it is thought an attempt is being made to flank us.

Giving Quarter. —This phrase is said to havo originated from an agreement between the Dutch and Spaniards, that the ransom of an officer or soldier should be a quarter of his pay. Hence to beg quarter, was to offer a quarter of their pay for their safety, and to refuse quarter was not accept that compensation as a ransom.

Then I knew at last, that the Almighty Father had indeed accepted the gift. My only brother is sleeping far away on the battle field, without a stone to mark his resting place, and I may not weep above him, or ever know his grave. His last breath was a prayer for me, and can I doubt that his freed soul bore it up to the great White Throne and laid it at Jesus' feet? Friends, my story is done. And to you who have dear ones coming back to you from the army when the next summer shall come, rejoice with your whole hearts that tho Almighty One heard your prayers, and kept them from harm ; but do not forget those who poured out their life blood upon the soil; do not forget to pray for those friends of the dead whose wounds will flow : afresh at the sight of your joy.

Headquarters Army of the Potomac, ) May 16, 1864. J After ten days successive fighting the Army of the Potomac was yesterday allowed to rest and recruit for another struggle. Some changes in the position of th© troops on either side were made during the day, and on the right a slight skirmish between the pickets had occurred. A column of the enemy was seen moving to wards our right flank, for the purpose, it is sup posed, of attacking our trains, but a portion of 2d corps was sent to check them, and their ob ject was defeated. It is almost impossible to discover the position of the enemy, as they keep in behind the woods, their pickets only being observabl...

THE SOLDIERS' JOURNAL. LOCAL AND PEBSONAL ITEMS. Readino Matter for the Army.—To tho tract literature, as much as any other character of reading matter and religious effort, might be attributed tho remarkable religious interest man ifested and reformation effected in our armies within the past year, and too much attention cannot be bestowed upon its publication and cir- OUlatlon. Although the efforts of the different associations engaged in this good work have already boon attended with marvellous success, let it not be forgotten that tho more abundantly the seed is sown the more plentiful will be the harvest, and it is therefore important that no ef tort should be spared to supply the armies with & superabundance of such reading matter. While it might bo considered superfluous to refer to particular tracts, we cannot refrain from men tioning one or two that have come under our notice recently, which, from their titles and gen eral composition, strike us as being peculiarly sqmr...

The Govern ment is sparing no effort to keep up the army to its maximum efficiency. Several thousand troops marched yesterday to the front, full of heart and hope. General Meade has issued an order stating that he is well satisfied with the position of affairs, that re?nforcements are stead ily arriving, and that, as the rebel communica tions are cut, the enemy is just in the condition which is most desired. We have constructed entrenchments, mounted guns, and will be ready to open fire when deemed advisable. When the weather permits, we may prepare ourselves for one of the deadliest and most decisive struggles Of the war. All useless appendages are being rapidly removed, and the wounded are coming in steadily from the front. A few days more will mark an epoch in our history." Washington, May 18, 11:15 A. M.

Near Blacksburg, General Averill commenced destroying the railroad, which was most effect ually done to a point four miles east of Chris tiansburg.

Hancock's Surprise Party.—The only in stance in the presont campaign of either side being surprised, was furnished by Hancock's corps in the battle of Thursday. It is now said that, had not the division in the rear of Barlow's cheered as it came on, tho surprise would have been complete, and that both Loo and Ewell would have been taken prisoners. Marshal Mar mont, knowing how dangerous it is to the safety of an army for such an enterprise as Hancock's to succeed, lays it down as an Indisputable max im that " a General surprised la a General dis honored," wishing to keep military men on their guard against such a disaster, by associating it with the deepest disgrace. Still, the greatest Generals, such as Omar and Frederick, have been caught in this way, and the maxim of the Grench Marshal, cannot, therefore, be taken without some abatement.— Boston Transcript.

Irwin's eyes filled now, and her woman's heart .trembled in her voice. "1 shall be in His hands just the same, moth er." " I know it, dear John ; and if death comos to you—" Mrs. Irwin broke down. She could not finish the set tence. "It will be through his permission. Are not even the sparrows in his keeping?" said John, calmly. " How much ir.ore human souls." They parted. Very pale, for all that day and the next, was Mrs. Irwin. But her bearing was firm. If her heart was troubled, it was not weak. She was a wonder to herself. " Truly it is so," she would repeat over and over again in her thought; "as our day is so shall our strength be." To an intimate friend she said— " I sometimes ask myself if I am not dream ing? Cau it bo possible that my boy is a soldier, and in the face of the enemy; and that he is there with my consent?" "Would you have him back?" asked the friend.

An assault was made on Burnside about mid night, and successfully repulsed. In the prese ding afternoon a one hundred picket of the ene my made a rush to find out what was the mean ing of Hancock's advancing siege line, and nine of the party were captured, and the rest killed or driven back. Several letters have passed between Gen. Grant and Gen. Lee in respect to collecting the dead and wounded between the two armies. General Grant, in the closing letter, regrets that all his "efforts for alleviating the sufferings of wound ed men left on the battle-field have been render ed nugatory."
