ew carriage. All my officers behaved throughout with heroic coolness and bravery, and the conduct of the men was that of veterans. No company in the army was more exposed, and none, I believe, so long a time, and yet no man quailed. There were instances of individual heroism worthy of special notice; but where all did so well, it would seem almost invidious to single out individuals. Respectfully submitted, J. D. Imboden, Capt. Battery, 3d Brigade, C. S. A. --Richmond Dispatch, July 26. Report of Major Walton, of the Washington artillery. Headquarters, Washington artillery, near Stone Bridge, Bull Run, July 22, 1861. General: I have the honor to report:--On the morning of the 21st instant, (Sunday,) the battalion of Washington artillery, consisting of four companies, numbering 284 officers and men and thirteen guns--six 6-pounders, smooth bore, four 12-pound howitzers, and three rifled 6-pounders, all bronze — under my command, was assigned to duty as follows:
o can hope that we win battles under conditions like these? Another, and a remarkable fact to be considered is, that the enemy seemed perfectly acquainted with our plans. The feint of Col. Richardson availed nothing, since the rebel force had nearly all been drawn from that position. Our combined attack was thoroughly met, and at the very points where partial surprises had been anticipated. The number of our killed and wounded is still a serious question here. I cannot believe that it exceeds five hundred. The number of missing is of course much greater, and if it be true that parties of our fugitives have been taken prisoners, I am afraid that many must be added to the list of killed. You have heard from other sources of the atrocities and cruelties trustworthily reported to have been practised by the Southern army. The battle of Bull Run is a bitter adversity. Shall we not take the lesson to our hearts, and out of so much evil bring some good?--N. Y. Tribune, July 26.
of the Guard were killed or wounded, though I did all in my power to ascertain. The regiment to which they are attached covered itself with glory; but were unfortunately fired into by a Mississippi regiment by mistake. The enemy were repulsed three different times with heavy loss. To use the expression of one of their men taken prisoner, they were slaughtered like sheep --among them several field-officers. F. L. Fred. Account by a Washington artillerist. The Memphis Avalanche, of July 26, has the following letter from a member of the Washington Artillery, to a sister living in Memphis. The writer graphically describes the battle at Bull Run: Culpepper, Va., July 20, 1861. Dear Sister Olivia: I suppose that ere this you have heard of the fight we had with the Yankees on the 18th inst. However, I will give you a correct history of it, or at least as near as I can. Our battalion (the New Orleans Washington Artillery) were stationed on a small creek called Bull R
atience, and consequent insubordination in the camp, as well as untimely precipitancy at Headquarters, it will prolong a struggle awful to contemplate in the far future. Some steps, it is true, have been taken toward reforms in high places, in view of the lesson of the other day; but there must be a clean sweep of the blundering and incompetent civilians, in the new levies especially, if the country at large is to expect success in the reconstruction of the Government.--Baltimore American, July 26. Washington, July 26, 1861.--The public mind, painfully but reasonably excited, is entitled to be informed of what so deeply and vitally concerns the general welfare. When the rebellion broke out into open war upon Fort Sumter, the people rose with a unanimity unexampled in the world's history, offering themselves and their possessions to the Government, asking only in return that a war thus wantonly and wickedly provoked, should be vigorously prosecuted. Passing over an interval of

Crossman, Deputy Quartermaster-General, has his at the residence of an officer in the secession army, whose name I cannot just now think of. To-day the Second Massachusetts regiment marched for Harper's Ferry, and this whole column, it is expected, will soon be moved there. --N. Y. Time, July 26. A correspondent of the Philadelphia Press makes the following statement:-- Hagerstown, Md., July 25, 1861. sir:--You will confer a favor upon the friends of justice by giving space to the accompanying statement. I make this request in behalf of Pennsylvania, whose commanding General has been accused of dereliction of duty. The following is based upon the information of citizens of Berkeley county, Virginia, well known to me, who, having been impressed in the rebel force, deser
ent time, succeeded in burning only about forty feet of the flooring, without materially damaging the wires. A large force of men was set to work repairing the bridge. After working all night they had the bridge in a proper condition for the crossing of the army and train. The cantonments of the enemy here were burned down by order of General Cox. There appears to be quite a Union sentiment here at present. All the way from here to Malden great cheering for the Union was manifested. July 26.--On the evening of the 25th the steamer Economy, with a detachment of men under Major Hines, was sent up the river six miles to Malden, to look after a foundry at that place, said to be casting cannon for the enemy. Not finding such to be the case, she returned to Elk River. One piece of the enemy's artillery, which was disabled at Scarey Creek battle, was found at a wagon shop, in Charleston, fully repaired and ready for service. It was duly cared for, and is now one of the Union detach
Doc. 132.-Gen. Butler on the contraband. Headquarters Department of Virginia, Fortress Monroe, July 30, 1861. Hon. Simon Cameron, Secretary of War:-- Sir: By an order received on the morning of the 26th July from Major-General Dix, by a telegraphic order from Lieut.-General Scott, I was commanded to forward, of the troops of this department, four regiments and a half, including Col. Baker's California regiment, to Washington, via Baltimore. This order reached me at 2 o'clock A. M., by special boat from Baltimore. Believing that it emanated because of some pressing exigency for the defence of Washington, I issued my orders before day-break for the embarkation of the troops, sending those who were among the very best regiments I had. In the course of the following day they were all embarked for Baltimore, with the exception of some 400, for whom I had not transportation, although I had all the transport force in the hands of the quartermaster here, to aid the Bay line of st
