semicircle, the distance was ten miles; but whether this distance was measured by the are or directly across from right to left, is not clear. The times are so exciting here that I cannot yet foresee my movements. I found that they had surgeons enough for the wounded in the hospitals at Manassas, and having no commission, I left and came up to Richmond to send down many things needed for the patients, thinking I could serve them better in this way than any other. --Mobile Evening News, July 30. Notes taken on the battle-field. Bull Run, Sunday Morning, July 21--10 o'clock. It seemed to be conceded that this was to be the day of trial for which we have been working for many months past, and, in common with the immense mass of men assembled here, I have taken my position upon Bull Run, to share the fortunes of the contest.
