The letter we publish from Washington . . .

. . . will give our readers a fair idea of the feelings there in view of the brave deeds of our Western army in contrast with the quiet scarcely yet broken on the Potomac.

We trust that the time draws nigh in which the residents of Washington may rejoice with the people fo the entire country over the brilliant and heroic achievements of Gen. McClellan and the well appointed army under his command.
