the Leesburg Washingtonian, of the 24th inst. On the opposite side of the Potomac, from Seneca to Conrad's Ferry, Federal troops have been gathering for the past week, evidently intending to cross if possible. To frustrate their purpose, Col. Hunton, on Sunday night ordered Captain Rogers, to place two pieces of his cannon at Conrad's Ferry, so as to prevent their landing on this side, which order was promptly executed and Lieutenant Henry Heaton placed in command with some twenty-five meergeant Wm. Ball, and the other by Wm. D. Drish, Jr.; after firing some forty rounds, and the enemy running off from their post, our men stopped for the day. None of our boys were hurt; several of the enemy are reported to have been shot. Col. Hunton was at the Ferry during the entire day. Capt. Rogers was on hand dividing his time between the battery at the Ferry and the battery at Goose Creek. On Tuesday the enemy again appeared at both Conrad's and Edward's Ferry. At the latter pl
fairs in Loudoun county. Leesburg, June 27, 1861. The arrival of Col. Sloan's Regiment of South Carolina Volunteers at a post in this vicinity, has had the happiest effect already upon the Union sentiment in Loudoun, and the original Secessionists among us are greatly rejoiced that the Palmetto State has fulfilled their expectations, and sent up her sons to fight in our common cause. Major Evans, of South Carolina, has been assigned to the command of Col. Sloan's Regiment and Col. Hunton's 8th Regiment of Virginia Volunteers. He has assumed the command, and now ranks as General in the Confederate Army. All quiet now in this neighborhood. There was a fight at White's Ferry, near Leesburg, last week, between Capt. Rogers' Artillery and a portion of Col Stone's command, on the opposite shore of the Potomac. The firing was kept up for two days, but only one man was wounded on our side, while several of the enemy were killed by the fire from Captain Rogers' guns. Ther

The remnant of this brave little band are doing the duty equal to a whole company, within a few miles of the enemy below Fairfax. They had to be reinforced in horses, as six, besides those mentioned, were killed. I must close, though the bravery of all the Southern soldiers is a fitting theme for the troubadours of old to chant. A Southern Lady. Eighth Virginia Regiment. This regiment (Col. Hunton) behaved gallantly in the great battle, and received the highest encomiums of the commanding General. The following list of killed and wounded we copy from the London Mirror. Border Guard--Townsend Hope, shot through the stomach; died twelve o'clock at night, buried at six in the evening. Lieut John R. White, confusion of the hip; Charles W. Brown, of Waterford, shot in the right thigh; Harrison Browner, shot through the shoulder-blades severely; James Alder two wounds, one thr
t. These statements, it will be remembered embody observations made on the evening of the 21st., before the full extent of our victory was ascertained. The battle commanded early Monday morning, and lasted throughout the day. The Yankees crossed the Potomac the previous night, and continued to come over in large numbers as the fight progressed until from eight to ten thousand were landed on the Virginia side. They were met by the forces under Gen. Evans, with the 8th Virginia regiment, Col. Hunton the 13th Mississippi, Colonel Barksdale; the 17th Mississippi, Colonel Featherston, and the 18th Mississippi, Colonel Burt.--The engagement very soon became general, and the fighting was terrible on both sides, the Yankees being protected by a heavy forest and having the advantage in ground and position. They were routed three distinct times at the point of the bayonet, and as often heavily reinforced. In one charge the 8th Virginia captured a splendid brass battery, and put its men to

ppose the force at Edward's Ferry, General Evans sent the 13th Mississippi, Col. Barksdale, and the 18th Mississippi, Colonel Burt. The 17th Mississippi, Colonel Featherston, was afterwards added. At Burt Bridge were posted the 8th Virginia, Col. Hunton, composed of Loudoun and Prince William volunteers, and a 12-pound howitzer. The forces thus posted remained awaiting the assault until about 3 P. M., on Monday, when all anticipation of an attack at the Burnt Bridge were dissipated. At the us, is the incessant firing — more uninterrupted and violent, I think, than at Manassas — indicated. Once or twice the noise of the musketry and the cheering seemed to roll nearer, and show that our troops were wavering and falling back. But Col. Hunton assures me that such was at no time the face. "It was one steady advance," he declares. To notice more particularly, however, the mode of attach adopted by the 8th, the writer of this was with the piece of artillery above alluded to, and was
