A correspondent of the Richmond Enquirer says: The writer of this, on Monday last, 29th ult., passed over the scene of the battle of the 21st, near Bull Run. It was gratifying to find, contrary to rumors which have gained some circulation, that the dead, not only of our own army, but also of the enemy, have all been decently buried. In the whole area of that terrible onset, no human corpse, and not even a mangled limb, was to be seen. The earth had recei
the enemy's left wing, also, to the amount of ten or twelve pieces. If that be so, we have captured forty odd pieces, amongst which is Sherman's celebrated battery. The Palmetto Guard have taken a flag and one or two drums. The Brooks Guard have captured a flag-staff and two kettle drums. The other companies have various articles. I have written the above in great haste, but the facts are correctly stated. I will give you some other incidents at another time. --Charleston Mercury, July 29. Louisville Courier account. Manassas, Va., Monday, July 22. Sunday, July 21, will ever be a memorable day in the annals of America.

That this Presbytery will proceed to appoint two ministers and two ruling elders, with alternates, to attend such Convention, who shall be authorized to advise and act with similar delegates appointed by other Presbyteries in the Confederate States, as in their judgment may seem best; the action of said delegates and of the Convention to be submitted to this Presbytery for its action thereon. 5. That this Presbytery prefers Atlanta, Ga., as the place, and the 15th of August next as the time, for the meeting of the proposed Convention; but that our delegates be authorized and instructed to meet at any time or place that may be agreed on by the majority of the Presbyteries appointing similar delegates, previous to the next stated meeting of this Presbytery.

priately perform the functions of a currency, and they are of opinion that the larger notes, such as $20 and $100, would be largely taken up by a class of our citizens who are not in the practice of making such investments. These notes would pass into their hands in the course of business, and they would very soon discover the advantage as well as the merit of thus contributing their aid in support of the Government of their choice and affections. The Committee gave also a respectful consideration to the plan submitted by Mr. Holmes, for the adjustment and final extinguishment of the public debt; but, without in any way impeaching its acknowledged merit, they decided not to express any opinion as to the expediency of its adoption by the Government, for whose purpose its adoption could be best determined, in their opinion, by the Secretary of the Treasury. All of which is respectfully submitted. G. A. Trenholm, Chairman. Richmond, July 25, 1861. --Charleston Courier, July 29.
