To the Editor the I‘re** The week is wearing away slowly. Days, and even hours seem loug in this profound suspense, aud amid this overwhelming excite ment. Nothing is read or talked or thought about but that stupeudous and awful struggle which has now been raging more than a week between the enemies and defenders of the Kepublic. The thrill of interest which runs through the city at the receipt of some new telegram, or the arrival of some fresh courier, may iudeed be transiently allayed by the an uouncetnents ot tbe extras a few minutes alter, but tbe intense expectancy with which the people await the mighty events now de veloping, neither ceases nor Hags by night or day. Even Congress, with so many great tasks unperformed, seems unable to devote it self to business, and the Senate adjourned, an hour or two ago, until Monday. The proclamation of the President, inviting the people to render thanks to Almighty God lor our success thus far, and to join in suppli cations for His further blessings upon our ef forts, seems like an utterance fiom the public heart at this tremendous hour. It is clear that up to this time the advantage remains with our standards, aud equally clear that every advantage gaiued has becu wruug from the enemy only by the most desperate aud obstinate fighting. Of the terrible carnage which lias filled the hospitals at Fredericksburg with the suffering and the dying, aud'may be strewing the field of battle with the tnaugled aud bleeding wrecks of our heroes even while I write, we can form little idea, but are not without re minders in the daily arrival of the wounded and the dead. Yesterday afternoon, about five o’clock, the steamer City of Albany ar rived at the Sixth street wharf from Belle Plain, bringing up 070 wounded. Before her ghastly cargo was discharged into the ambu lances that were waiting for it, the steamer Wawaset came steaming up with 531 more — These men were more seriously injured than those who had previously arrived. Coffee, lemonade, Ice water and sandwiches were dis tributed to the poor fellows, who received tbe refreshments with many expressions of thankfulness. The body of Major General John Sedg wick, who comma:.(led thT: Sixth Army Corps, and who was killed on Monday last, lay at the embalmers most ol the day yesterday, and was visited by a great number of people.— The body was dressed in the uniform it had worn in life, and lay in its coffin with a calm aud placid look that was almost a smile upon tbe Hne soldierly face. Beneath the left eye and near the nose appeared the wound through which tbe sharpshooter's bullet had entered bis braiu. The remains were escorted to the cars by a party of officers at seven o'clock last evening. A few hours ago Ibe body of General Hays was carried to tbe depot escorted by a sec tion of Artillery only, for many men can not now be spared even to d»honor to our noblest slain. The indescribably mournful sound ot tbe muffled drums and tbe bugles playiug a funeral dirge was, 1 am sure, no hollow iudi calion of grief. The body of General Stephen son of Massachusetts, who fell eight and for ty hours ago while leading the first Division of the Ninth Corps into the fiercest of the fight with Hood’s rebels, lies now a few rods from where I write. Gazing upon his hand some and intellectual features, so profoundly placid in their marble repose, witli the dear old flag spread over him. and. a handful of flowers, tbe gilt of some kind heart, resting upon bis bosom—gazing at him as he lies there so gloriously, one might almost grow enamored of death. Close beside him lie tbe remains of Lieut. Col. Chapman of the 57th New York iu a magnificent coffin, upon the foot of which lies his coat riddled with balls aiiu dkin nun uiuuu. .iui aic iucbc an. iuu corpse of General Klee, who commanded the third Br.gade, fourth Division, 5th Army Corps, is in the same building and will lie in stale to-morrow. Our loss of valuable officers has been terri bly heavy. And while we mourn for them as they deserve, we can but remember with a sorrow still more profound, the thousands no less brave than they, who have given their lives to their country and their God just as freely, and who sleep to-night in the shallow grave, the common trench, or upon the open battle-field. For them wc need not pray, but for those countless hearts to whom they were dear we may well beseech God's sustaining and sanctifying grace. In them our Country has lost, many of her bravest sons, but bas gained an example of heroic devotion aDd sublime sacrifice that will be more toliertban the strength of uumbers. Had our arms never beeu honorably distinguished before,the events of the last few days would have covered them with glory. Troops are still going to the front in large numbers. As I commence this paragraph the drums of a regiment, marching toward the river, reach me through the darkuess of the evening. A heavy force is said to have passed through the city very quietly last night. Sigel is said to have nearly reached Grant. From both Butler and Sherman wo have cheering news. Truly it storms and ‘•thunders all round,” hut as our fathers said to themselves In the dark days' of the Invo lution, so uow and with far better apparent reason say we ‘'serenebit”—it will shine to morrow.
