The following spirited deacrlptlon, written by a Washington boy but fi/tten year* old, will be recognized a* the best yet written?so far as hi* limited points of observation extended?of the battle of Plttabnrg Landing : Pittsbbro, Tenn., April 7?Monday night. My Dtar ; Yeaterday and to-day ?ai fought the greatest battle fought during thi* war. It Is Impossible for me to attempt to describe it, for as yet we know nothing positive, and I suppose that the first details we will get of the fight will be through the newspapers. I will give vou an account of what part the gunboats took in the flght; and Gen. Wilson and all the officers acknowledge that but for 11s the enemy would now be in possession of Pittsburg. Yesterday morr.ing we were laying at Crump's banding, (about three miles below Pittsburg,) when we Ledid cannonading up the river, fton? of us thought anything of It until a steamer came down, and called out in passing tbat they were flgbting up at Pittsburg. We then got under way, and stood up the river, and came to near the Tyler, which wa? laying about half a mile above Pittsburg. We saw soldiers coming by two* and three all along the bank of the river, Mime with guns and others without. The cannonading In the meantime was incessant, apparently about two miles back of the river, and occasional discharges of musketry. We sent a boat ashore at Pittsburg, but they could tell us nothing but tbat Gen. Prentiss had been surprised and six of his batterie* taken We hailed the men on shore, but they all told different stories, somesaylnp tbat our troops were being cut all to placet. When a*ked why tbey bad left the field, thev replied tbat tbey bad been *ent bark as being unable to dodnty. Ner.e of them evidently knewanythlng, for thev had run away without firing a gun. In about two hours as many as two hundred fame tbrocgh the woods to the river bank, and seeing the guuboats felt thit they were safe, and most of onsirwoeu lu'-nmeivt** om ;o ine a snooz? Fverybody on board wis highly exasperated with thein. We returned to Crumps Landing about 12 to see It we coald hear anything of Gen. Wallace's division. The bank* of the river frorr Pittsburg to Crumps were lined with the cowards; some lotuging along towards Crumps and others laying In the shade und-r the trees and bushes Very few of th?m had guns, an tbev had thrown away everything to run faster. One big strapping fellow wa? standing staring stupidly at the boat with nothing In the world on but a white flannel undershirt. I was glad to notice one thing, that Isthttnota a ngle officer could be seen among tbem. Arrived at Crumps; no news of Gen Wallace, for not a single one of bis men bid come t *_ 1.1.1 am ? ? ? ?' - 1 | uu i. r iam lurrr uu o \) ill y WLPli L6&fing j the roar of cannon Increase, If possible, we got I under way and stood up the river; bank* lined as before with our tnav solJitts. \\ e went up a 'Httle above Pittsburg to join the Tyler. We lay to a abort time, when a shot came whizzing over our boat*, and then they.commenced to fall around ua In the water prettv thick. We opened fire?the Tyler and this ve*ael?In the direction the ahot came from, and for about a quarter of an hour we kept up a vf ry brisk cannonading. (At I write Capt Shirk hat Just returned from the Tvler, where he haa seen Gen?. Grant and Nelson He say* that there are at least nu.tXH) men thU night laying dead and wounded on the tleld of battle; and the steamboat! lavfng here are full to overflowing of wounded; but there will b? a good many place* vacated to night. It Is just dark and raining heavily.) But to resume; no more shots came, and as we were afraid of killing our own mea, for we eould not tUl to whom the cannon that we heard belonged we ceased firing We dropped down to Plttsbunr. and thrtf got word from Genml Grant that oar men were rapidly losing ground,and that theenemy's shell were already foiling Into Pittiibiirg. There Ik a f&vlne aeparutea Pittsburg from a hill about a tbouaand yard* off and the en? my bad gained poasesaton of It, for we could see the flashes of their guns aa they fired Into a bctterv which waa replying to them from Pittsburg. This was the time that we, by our lire, aavrd the whole army; for just as we opened fire on the rebels our inen were beginning to abandon the battery in Pitts burg, and thus all would have been lost, for they?I. e. the rebels?would Lave completely outflanked our army on the left, got between our center and the river, and all the steamers and tores assembled at Pittsburg would have fallen Into their possession; in fact they would have bagged the whole army, bead and tall; tut, we poured such a heavy and destructive tire into them that we dismounted two of their guns, killed a great many of their men, and although our men were ?o cloae to them, or net vtrn?, that. ma we have since learned, we killed about 20 of our owd troops, we checked tuelr advance entirely. All oar tiring bad been altogether at random, for the foliajre and tree* were so thick on the banks of the river that the opposing parties were entirely hidden from our view. As one of our officers said tc.bight: "Our shell must have bten guided by the hand of God, since they achieved such great results " it was by this time dark, and the firing had nearly ceased on both sides. We got orders to lire at iatervaisof five minutes all night The Tyler to ire until one o'clock, and then we to take It up until daybreak, but as we orjy had about 120 shell all told, snd nearly nil of them five second fuses, we only fired every fifteen minutes. And thus ended tne first dsv's Mgbt. General Hurl's advance Lad arrived a few days before atftavannab, and his main body were and ar? arriving iou?tantlv. I auppoae, of course, Gen Grant Immediately sent for reinforcements; for about one p. m. troops began lo arrive from a tea-miles' march from Savannah, d?taiy and fired; for all daylong toe sun had been intensely bos.

I bad b?fn up until two la tbe morning, watching tbe firing and bunting of our shell, so when I went to bed I sleftf pretty sound until 7 o'clock, when the steward wota me up, saying that ever since 5 o'clock they bad been fighting like devils. 1 Immediately dressed and went on deck; and uch terrific firing was new heard before on this continent. The rattling of musketry wis lnce*!?ant, and only equaled by the roar of the cannon. Although we were within half a mile of the fighting on tbe left wing, where it was most severe, we could not see a single Jlilng. The enemy's battery on tbe hill opposite Pittsburg was charged early in the morning by Nelson's division, and taken. 1 bad forgotten to make notes on Sunday, but on Monday 1 did so, and 1 will give them to you Just as I wrote tbem. to show the contradictory reports we received of the fight, and In what suspense we were all day larintr within hulf a mll? nf th* flc/ht uritKAnl w?? ?^ nilUUUI knowing bow It mi going on, or being able to participate in it From 8 to 9 beavv and continuous roir of artillery.

Rumen of Johnson and Prentiss killed and Beauregard taken prisoner. On our left wing the musketry has rcas- cl tirlrg, but the cunnon are heard at intervals. On Sunday night, just before dark, we heard some body calling fcr help on shore,but we had no time to pay attention U> It. It ct/imr.enced again in the morning, ?o w/sent a boat on share and found a corporal who had been -hot tbrough the leg and the bone broken. He had crawlcd from tue field as far an the shore, but could get no farther. About 10 o'clock we iaff a man going on allfours slowly and painfully through the brushwood skirting the hill beyond Pittsburg. He must have wen us for a considerable tirue, but preferred going It on bin own hook; but as we saw hi* journey would soon come to an end, for tbe p.ith he had been pursuing wa? broken a few yards further on by a land-slide, and the hill was too steep for him to crawl up. Wcaenta boa: on shore and conveyed him to a hospital boat. He had he?*n shot through the leg at two p.m. on Sunday; bad crawled a mile and a half to the river, and had slept in the swamp during the rain, and h&d set out for Pittsburg In the mornlug; had an old piece of cracker hid in hts ab'rt. About eleven, observed a man with a musket, supporting a comrade, who, with his bead falling on kla breast, and his long and matted hair entirely concealing his face, was staggering slowly along. The soldier had his musket In one band, with the other arm round the wounded Mian'* waist, and every ten or twelve steps he would lay him gently on the ground to rest He soon came to the plare that had stopped the other man. when be went nnd lifd hi* mii?ket ?nH at. tempted to drug the wounded roan up the hill. The Captain said he would wait and lie if he could get along before fending a boat on shore; but as he only got about ten atep* in a quarter of an hour, he sent far hltn, a* the man was evidently badly wounded. We saw them get him with difficulty into the boat, and th? other man go up the bill, get his musket, and strike a bee line f->r the light. When the boat returned we leirned that the man bad been shot on Sundhy afternoon through tbf mouth, the bullet coming out at the back of his head, and alto through th* right brent The man th*t went back had l ad nothing^ to eat since early Sunday morning. lie asked the oifl'-er in the boat if he had anytning with him to ej?t, for he said be bad uo time to go to Pittsburg. 'I he officer had nothliig with bim. So the man, although he said he was very hungry, went to tight again. The banki of the river at Pittsburg were strewn with the dead and dying. The lighting l^at ' have described and beard was all on the left wing, and In the center and rlpht It was ju?t a* severe. We started down to Cravens this morning to get some provisions. W.
