ARMY IN THE EAST. I The following letter, from our special correspondent, dated the 9th instant, only arrived last night. We have already pulished letters from him to the loth, but the de- tails he now gives will still be read with interest :â Camp before Sebastopol, Nov. 9. It is known that Sir William Cod ring ton, with 'she loca rank of General, will succeed Sir James Simpson in com- mand of the army; that Sir Richard Airey, Quarter- master-general, will retire in a few days, and make room for either Colonel etherall, or Colonel Herbert. There is every prospect of undisturbed repose during the coming winter, and during the fine frosty mornings, the drill ser- geants can work their will with the awkward squads of recruits, so that the spring will open on as fine an armv as ever was led by English general. Sir W. Codrington is just the man to draw in the reins gently, but firmly, and to correct the evils which tend to mar its efficiency in the field. e are a little too free and easy. Rum is too plen- tiful, and money too abundant. Iu one small regimental canteen, on the 5th of November, the anniversary of Inkermann, not less than £ 140 was received, in ready money, for various articles of consumption, mosdy of a liquid nature, and about the sum of £ 59 more was debited to good customer!. The Russians maintain their usual attitude. The contraction of our straggling lines towards the Belbok destroys their only hope of temporary success in assaulting this position. Strange as it may appear to people, I must express my belief that the Russians do not intend ta abandon the Crimea, until they are forced to do so. They have a splendid posit.on, notwithstanding all the maps may say, and they will not believe their communications are cut off till the fact is so. Their hope is probably that by next campaign, the Crimea will be a vast camp, and that they will be in force enough to hem us in at EupittoTla, to defend the coast wherever we may make a descent, to hold Perekop, and to paralize our army Sebastopoi, so that it cannot move on Cherson or Nicholaieii. They hold the rivers and streams of the Crimea, ana that is a great advantage. However, there is one place in the Crimea from which our army might move with ease, on the rear of the enemy's position behind Simpher°-P°l> and it is not possible for the enemy to hinder our debouching from this point, unless they beat us in a pitched battle. There is no news to record except what is contained in my diary Wednesday, Nov. 7. A day worthy of the best English September. The enemy since morning have been executing manoeuvres on â vast scale all over the plateau from the west side to Mackenzie's farm. They are in full uniform, their crreat coats laid aside ⢠and it is evident thev are under- going inspection by some great personage. The gleam of bayonets flashed m every direction over the ridges, and pierced the brushwood, showing the number of troops to be ven considerable. The manoeuvres lasted till late in the afternoon.
