These drove the right of the enemy, understood to have been commanded by Beauregard, from the front of the field, and out of the detached woods, and down to the road, and across it up the slopes on .the er, and I know every effort was made by the General-in-Chief that this should be done, and that even if Johnston joined Beauregard, it would not be because he could be followed by General Patterson, but from causes not necessary for me to refer to, y forces, therefore, we drove in from Fairfax Court House, Fairfax Station, Germantown, and Centreville, and those under Beauregard at Manassas, must be added those under Johnston from Winchester, and those brought up by Davis from Richmond, to other Virginia, and going on it far enough to break up and destroy the communication and interviews between the forces under Beauregard and those under Johnston. And could we have fought a day or a few hours sooner, there is every thing to show how we co

Beauregard's purpose to make the attack, instead of etained on the railroad. As I have said, Gen. Beauregard was not deceived, for the immense clouds he wants of the wounded. At this point Generals Beauregard and Johnston, accompanied by a staff ofy rode forward into the storm of iron hail. Beauregard's eyes glistened with expectation, no doubt, the New York Zouaves among the number. General Beauregard estimated the enemy's numbers in the act the delivery or execution of an order of Gen. Beauregard's respecting an attack on the enemy's reaas a commander was staked on this battle: Gen. Beauregard promptly offered to lead the Hampton Legin a style unsurpassed and unsurpassable. Gen.

Beauregard at Manassas Junction is estimated at 60,0s at Manassas may be understood, and that Gen. Beauregard, of whose character I gave some hint at Cn, in fact, is precisely that point which Gen. Beauregard chose for his centre, and which he has fo with which he encamps and moves his men, Gen. Beauregard is very popular here. I doubt if Napoleoee, secessionists indeed! And all this time Beauregard and Lee were pounding away on our left frontstill there would have been enough to permit Beauregard to occupy Manassas, and to send on a heavy cown itself on the mercy of the pursuers. If Beauregard's or Lee's force was small, as they say, ande, must have swelled the force under Lee and Beauregard to 70,000 men at the least. He is the best rates.

ip in the field. There was no one mind of the Napoleonic order, at once centralizing and comprehending the entire movement of the day. There was no one to organize our regiments in strong, swift-moving columns, and hurl them powerfully against the foe. Nor were the generals of division more competent to their work. They exhibited personal bravery, but advantages gained were not secured; important points were abandoned as soon as carried; and a reckless, fatiguing pursuit preferred, until Beauregard and Davis, who commanded in person, led us on to positions thoroughly available for the attack of their final reinforcements. As for us, no one had thought of providing that reserve absolutely necessary to the sealing and completion of a battle's successes. It is the last conflict of the day that decides the victory and defeat. We had no cavalry to rout our retreating foe. Our artillery was not rendered efficient in the afternoon. Gen. Tyler neglected to guard his rear, and to check
Island, and four others whose names I did not learn, one of whom, I believe, was the surgeon of the West Point battery, were attending to the wounded of their respective regiments. Private Tyler, of the West Point battery, had his thigh amputated and died that night. Cornelius, Col. Martin's servant, who was wounded while assisting the colonel to dismount, also died. Mullen, Second Rhode Island, and two of the Seventy-first, whose names I do not know, were found dead next morning. Gen. Beauregard and Col. Barker came up about 7 1/2 o'clock that evening with 150 prisoners of different regiments, most of whom were Fire Zouaves. He stopped and inquired how our wounded were getting along, while the prisoners were driven towards the Junction by the cavalry. During the night a number of prisoners were brought in, and on Monday morning 30 were sent on, their hands tied together in front with Manilla rope; among them was the lad of 17, from Maine, who plead bitterly to be left to see
ous to the fight; and knowing well both Generals Beauregard and Johnston, and their staff officers,e in his camp, where I spent the night. General Beauregard determined to attack them in several coln as to their intention to make the attack.

Gens. Beauregard, Johnston, and Bonham have just come to tbefore one o'clock. The fray ceases; Generals Beauregard and Johnston dash on to the scene of acto stoop to our relief. By an order of Gen. Beauregard, Gen. Bonham sent Col. Kershaw's regimentntil they reached the Stone Bridge. Here Gen. Beauregard halted them, reinforced them with a Virgi under a previous and well-timed order of Gen. Beauregard, came, sweeping every thing before them, f at the head of the Seventh, he asked of Gen. Beauregard what he would have him do. The General sa[5 more...
(a connection of Old Zack's,) who bore a sealed letter from Jeff. Davis to President Lincoln, according to a representation upon its back, written and signed by Beauregard at Manassas, explaining the fact, and asking that Capt. Taylor might be facilitated in his mission. Col. Porter accordingly sent Capt. Taylor and his missived, he was kept under a strict guard until an early hour this morning, when he was escorted back to Uncle Sambo's lines, and turned loose to find his way back to Beauregard, without having accomplished what was evidently a main point to be attained by his mission-viz.: to communicate with traitors in our midst, who had doubtless prepared to send to Beauregard, through him, important information concerning the alleged contemplated movement of General McDowell's army upon the inevitable Sambo's lines. Although the President has communicated the exact contents of the letter from Davis, brought by Capt. Taylor, to none besides his constitutional advisers and
till this morning. It is ardently hoped that the rascals will make a stand at Manassas, where Beauregard is now in command, with some forty odd thousand men, it is said. But it is greatly feared thevils in human shape, and they will be disinclined to withstand a charge from these troops. If Beauregard does not give us battle at Manassas, his army will be thus thoroughly demoralized, and he is brom Washington to Richmond; We have come to Virginia to find a place to settle; We mean to bag Beauregard and Jeff Davis; We are the pacificators; They won't wait for us, &c. From the inside of thi, there must have been from 5,000 to 8,000 rebel troops here this morning. It is said that Gen. Beauregard was here in person last night, and left word for the troops, who were commanded by Col. Bon of intrenchments, constructed carefully and at leisure, under the immediate supervision of Gen. Beauregard, and the additional advantage of rapid railroad communication with Richmond and their base

When it is considered that not a few of them have no sympathy with the secession movement, that they have received little or no pay, that their provisions are scant, it is not singular that they are anxious to desert. It must not be inferred, however, that these feelings are universal. On the contrary, the prevailing opinion among the soldiers is that they will have an easy victory over the North, and the officers do all in their power to inspire them with confidence. General Beauregard, about the close of June, in addressing his troops, assured them that he had a strong hope that on the Fourth of July he would dine at Willard's Hotel, in Washington; that he would then immediately march upon Philadelphia, from which point he would proceed to New York, and there alone, on the banks of the Hudson, dictate terms of peace to the Northern army. The cry among all the ultra-secessionists that they seek no compromise, that they will ask for no quarter, and grant none. The
