First Company of Sharpshooters.

(Andrew Sharpshooters.) This company was recruited at Lynnfield, in August last, and left for the seat of war, September 2d. They were ordered to report at headquarters, Washington, with a special request from Gov. Andrew that they be connected with some Massachusetts regiment in Gen. F. W. LANDER'S Brigade.

The company are all armed with telescopic rifles, varying in weight from twenty to seventy lbs. These arms were furnished by members of the company, and purchased of sharpshooters, in different parts of New England. There is no regular manufactory of these arms, but they were all made by different skilful gunsmiths, to the order and pattern of private individuals. It was estimated that there were less than three hundred of these rifles in the loyal States, and but few, if any, in the rebel States.

The peculiarity of this arm, independent of its weight, is the telescope attached to ach rifle, from one-half to one inch in diameter, extending from near the muzzle to

the stock, and is adjusted by means of a screw, passing through the stock. Two fine threads, intersecting, are stretched across the glass at the end of the telescope, by which accuracy of aim is obtained.

The great weight of the barrel sustains a heavy charge of powder, and obviates the springing of the barrel, or recoil of the piece. The ball is conical, and flat at the base, and is used with a greased patch. The telescope, properly adjusted, brings the object within precise range.

Very great skill and judgment are required in firing at an object at a long distance, as the distance must be carefully estimated, and allowance made for the strength of the wind, which will vary considerably the direction of the projectile.

The fall of the projectile - or its attraction to the earth - is great, and increases with the distance fired. It has been calculated that this fall is from four to fire feet in three hundred yards, and one foot in twenty to thirty feet in a distance of eight hundred yards. But, notwithstanding these difficulties, those experienced in the use of this arm become so expert that they are nearly sure of hitting an object the size of a man at one-half a mile distant, and an object the size of a horse at one mile. They are discharged at rest, and it requires about two minutes for an experienced person to load, aim, and fire. It is not known that this rifle has ever before been used in warfare, An opportunity to test its efficiency was offered at the skirmish at Edward's Ferry, Oct. Ist and 2d. On the first day, a rebel colonel was shot from his horse by a private, named Hatch, at a distance of one-half mile, Several privates were killed at longer distances. On the second day, about forty of the company, protected by a Virginia rail fence, met, unaided, the advance of a regiment of the enemy. The regiment emerged from woods distant about one-half mile, formed in line of battle, started towards them, yelling, and at double-quick-stopping only to load. As they were forming, the sharpshooters opened fire from their little battery. At this fire, the standard bearer, and many others, fell. By the time the regiment had advanced to within about twenty rods of the left flank of the company, 80 deadly had been the fire of these rifles, that the whole regiment turned into a rarine and fled the field. The time occupied by the regiment in this advance was about twenty minutes, and during that time the sharpshooters had fired, on an average, about ten shots each. Three rebel standard-bearers, in succession, were shot down, — all, it has been reported, by the unerring aim of Sergeant Shattuck, - when no one dared rear the ensign again. Gen. Gorman reports seventy of the enemy killed in this skirmish ; but is believed this falls much under the actual number. No rebel account of their loss on this day has reached us.

When Gen. Lander was ordered to take command of Gen. Kelley's Division, at Romney, by his special request Gen. McClellan permitted him to take this corps with him, and they are now known as the body.guard of that heroic general, in whose success his native State - Massachusetts - takes such a just pride.

This company, also the second company, were, by authority of Gov. Andrew, raised by Hon. W. D. Northend, of Salem. This gentleman also had charge of the recruiting of Company D, 2d Regiment, Company C, 14th Regiment, Company H, 19th Reg. iment, and the 4th Massachusetts Battery, now at Ship Island, and rendered essential service in recruiting other companies in Essex County:

John Saunders, captain of this company, was born in England. He is six feet two inches high, very muscular and strong, and from his boyhood familiar with the use of the telescopic rifle. Lieut. William Gleason, formerly captain of an artillery company, has long enjoyed the reputation of being one of the best shots in the State. Second Lieut. George C. Gray was a member of Capt. Devereux's company, Salem Zouaves, in the 8th Regiment, and a well-instructed soldier.

Richardson Light Infantry,

( Of Lowell.). On the receipt of the news at Lowell of the attack on the Massachusetts 6th, in Baltimore, on the 19th of April, this company was at once recruited, and the officers were commissioned the next day. This company was the first to offer their services to the State of Massachusetts for three years' service, and was the seventh company sent from this State as three years' volunteers. They were mustered into the United States' service in Boston, May 21st, 1861, and sailed for Fortress Monroe the next day. On the 29th inst., they were assigned to the regular garrison of the fortress, - then under command of Col. Dimmick, in which position they have remained till the present time. Maj.-Gen. Wool and Gov. Andrew have made a request to the War Department to change the organization of this company from infantry to light artillery, which will no doubt soon be granted, as they are an independent infantry company doing artillery service. Before leaving Lowell, through the exertions of Geo. F. Richardson, Esq., in whose honor the company is named, they received many presents - such as uniforms, &c. - from the citizens. The ladies, also, presented to them a splendid silk flag, on their departure.
