For the Presbyterian Banner. Prom the Army of the Potomae., _, Fkienb Bifi.es, 1st Beg'fc Sickles' Brigade, Y Camp Farnpm , Feb._llth, 1862. J Messrs. Editors :—Our company being from Pittsburgh, and a great many of bur friends and relations there being subscribers and readers of your valuable journal , I, thinking that a few words in the shape of a letter describing our camp, manner of living, &c, would be interesting to them, haVjB concluded to make "the attempt. The rendezvous of our Brigade was, as is well known* , on Staten Island. Gen. Sickles there experienced a great many difliculties in organizing his Brigade, and for a time we feared that the foolish and unpatriotic jealousy of his political enemies would prevail against him : but the battle of Bull's Bun occurring—setting the whole country in a blaze—-troops were hurried to the Capital from every quarter, and our Brigade amongst the rest. Our Regiment was the first of the Brigade to arrive in Washington, two d...

England, and. America in 1813. The following is from the London Times , of March 18th , 1813. " The public will learn with sentiments which we shall not presume to anticipate, that a third British frigate has struck to an American frigate. This is an occurrence that calls for serious reflection—this and the fact stated in our paper yesterday, that Loyd's list contains notices of five hundred British vessels captured in seven months, by the Americans. Five hundred merchantmen and three frigates, (aye, and three sloops of war) I Oaa these statements be true, and can the English people hear them unmoved ? Any one who had predicted such a result of an American war this time last year, would have been treated as a'madman or a traitor. He would have been told, if his opponents had condescended to argue with him, that long ere seven months had elapsed, the American flag would have been swept from the sea, the contemptible navy of the United States annihilated, and their maritime arse...

Til© Coming Inauguration. On 'Saturday, February 22<3, Jefferson Davis is to be inaugurated President-of the _ptffifederate States of America. The ceremony is to take place at Kiehmond, Ta. Hitherto the Government has been Provisional. Thenceforth it is to be established and permanent. So say the rebels. President Lincoln says, Fo. The United States embrace all the territory from Passatnaquoddy to the Eio Grande, and he is sworn to support the Constitution and execute the laws, and he means to fulfil the trust. It is probable that the pageant will take place, but their recent reverses must make % a gloomy occasion. " There can be but libtle hope, and no joy. It is possible that t>y Saturday Gen. Burnside will be at Weldon, or at some other point on the great Southern railroad, thus cutting off Mr. Davis from his dominions, except one little corner, where his prospects of a long lease of authority are by no means brilliant. We await events.
