lan of action. The Northerns were the invaders — the Southerns were prepared to meet them. Jefferson Davis is himself a soldier, and commanded in person.--General Beauregard is said to be one of the cleverest captains of the age, and Gen. Johnston, whose timely approach, like Brucher at Waterloo, decided the fortunes of the day,d over by the retreating native Americans. Several were taken prisoners, and it is to be hoped many of the missing Sixty-ninth are amongst them. Soldiers like Beauregard will treat them as brave men ought to be treated. To the Northerns the battle at Bull Run has not only been a defeat, but a disaster and a disgrace.--To Irishmn whose opinions are entitled to great respect, say that, even with the ordinary dependence on raw troops, they would desire nothing better than for Johnston or Beauregard to attempt that part of the Confederate programme which contemplates an advance towards Washington. Many absurd stories are, from time to time, prop gated
Letter from a Lincolnites doctor --We have been permitted to copy the subjoined letter from Dr. Elisha Harris, of Lincoln's Medical Staff, addressed to Gen. Beauregard's Medical Staff, which was received by Dr. J. S. D. Cullen, a gifted young physician of this city, who was, on the 18th of July, appointed by Gen. Beauregard, Gen. Beauregard, "Medical Director of the Advancing Column in the Field," of our Army, and who is now attached to the 4th Brigade, Gen. Longstreet commanding. What action was taken by the parties to whom it was addressed, we have not been informed. The people of the Confederate States are first informed by this letter, of the hitherto doubted facas follows: Sanitary Commission, Treasury Building, Washington, D C., Aug. 10, 1861. To Drs. Cullen, Williams and Brodis, Staff Medical Officers of General Beauregard's Division of the Confederate Army. Gentlemen --The reports which I have received concerning the personal interest and the kind consideration given by
offered for the enlistment of men in the army of half a million. Besides a hundred dollars at the end of the three years, it is now seriously contemplated to offer bounty lands and allotments of land in the fertile territory that may be permanently held by the United States.--The offer will be tempting to the unemployed in this country and abroad." This is the old plan revived. This is a renewal of the promises of farms in Virginia! A promise which has been generously fulfilled by Beauregard, who gave the invaders some ten thousand small farms on the 21st of July, and put at least five thousand more in a condition to become before long the same kind of freeholders. Of course "the unemployed in this country and abroad" will jump at such a prospect. Stir them up, ye conscientious journalists, with lying accounts of small losses at Manassas and "tempting" promises of that which the North is no more able to give than the Devil was able to give "the fertile territory" which he pr
demoralized despotism, and the great American question which is of so much importance to us was advanced many steps towards its solution. The question which prior to that time was looked upon by foreign powers as an enigma, has now assumed the common appearance of a problem. The rule for the solution of which can be found in Southern valor, spirit and determination. The first equation of this problem was solved on the 21st of July, according to this rule by the vigilant and valiant Beauregard and Johnston. For a few days past lowering clouds — not of gloom nor portentous of evil, but of acceptable rain and truly refreshing showers — have been gathered in the firmament, and have excluded from view the blue canopy of Heaven. There has been much sickness in this place for several weeks past. The measles and typhoid fever have been most prevalent — especially in the First North Carolina and the Sixth Georgia Regiments.

tle causes flow," are sometimes smothered in their womb by the nerest meanest accident, and a single fortuitous circumstance may enable the escape or capture of an army. When the tide of battle was turning in our favor, and the eagle vision of Beauregard and Johnston behold the inevitable rout and dismay of the enemy, a courier was dispatched to a reserved brigade or heavy numbers, ordering it to advance rapidly to Centreville, and cut off the retreat of the fugitives. The horse fell to the grand Washington — the property, doubtless, of some officer who had been bred to the law and had determined, upon his arrival in Richmond, to resume his more favorite profession — winning his cases, if necessary, at the point of the bayonet. Beauregard's headquarters is near Manassas. Very little is heard of him — nothing is known; and the mysteries which envelope his future designs are as dark as the smoke that overhung the recent great battle.
