LETTER FROM THE ARMY Headquarters Fifth Army Corps , ) - : _, ; . ; ¦ .: Maroh 21* 1863. j Dear Pilot :—Last Tuesday, 17th _inst., was a beautiful day. A wafting zephyr, almost sufficiently violent to be denominated a wind, yet pleasant in its spring-like coolness, oscillated the nude 'boughs of. the sparse _oaks yet standing "solitary and alone": in this vicinity. The/migrating birds, as northward-bound , they sailed above us, gave occasional chirps to remind us of approaching spring; and frequently stopping to rest their wearied pinions, in groups, carrolled those familiar warbles which suggests to one, such sweet thoughts of transient innocence and solemnity! With our arms akimbo, apd our rifle at an order, we were standing, sentinel over a small squad of prisoners. The guard was chatting familiarly with the guarded, when a roar, like distaut thunder, suddenly echoed and re-echoed through the vales eontigious to the historic Rappahannock. Directly it was followed by anoth...

U N I T Y O P S E NTIM E N T. _£ioce Congress has adjourned, and local elections are over, we trust that party dissensions will be healed for a time at least. We •re on the eve of stirring events. We will soon be called upon to witness a bloody drama, the like of which the world has never known. If our country is. to be preserved, and the Union and the Constitution maintained, the work, we think, must be done before the next twelve months have revolved. Recent intelligence from the so-calledSouthern Confederacy, destroys all hopes of a peaceful settlement of our national difficulties, which some may have entertained. The south era leaders will be content with nothiog but the separation of the country and recognition of their government. The only alternative left is , that of war. This the loyal people of all sections of our country believe. Whatever opinions some may have held heretofore, it is now the settled conviction of almost every one that the war must go on , and in order...

WHAT SHALL BE DONE WITH THE PAPEBS. Religious papers and tracts might be made of much more use than they are at present if the subscribers, after a careful reading of them, would send such periodicals to the soldiers.— Lying in camp week after week, accustomed to the same dull routine of duty, anything in the shape of _readtng matter is highly prized. Local papers are almost as, welcome as letters.— Now, we conceive that just here, much good might be done by their Christian friends at home. Every Christian family gets, or should get, at least one religious paper. Now, after the pages of these papers are read by every one about the house, what is then done with th6m t Sometimes they are filed away for future reference—sometimes put away in some old chest only to be brought to light at the first applebutter boiling, to be used by the good house wife in covering the crocks.

THE FRANKLIN FIGHT As the history of the fight at Franklin, Tenn., is being revealed, we are gratified to learD that Brig. Gen. C. C. Gilbert is relieved from the blame of the failure of the expedi tion under Col. Coburn. As we are informed, the reconnoissance was undertaken against Gen. G.'s advice, against a force which he had reason to believe was largeT than the whole of his command ; that the brigade under Coburn, when withdrawn, left him so weakened that it was impossible to afford the assistance which it is generally believed he should have sent. When the fight began between Colonel Coburn and the rebels, with the enthusiasm and ardor peculiar to volunteers, our men rushed on, regardless of danger, carrying the enemy before them. The rebels seemed to be completely .whipped, running for their lives, throw ing away their guns, and every evidence of complete demoralization. This proved to ; be strategy on the part of the enemy—for the impetuosity of our men, as well as t...
