uffered but little. Just before sundown, and when the right of the enemy gave way, they were ordered to charge the batteries in their front, which they executed in gallant style, led by Gen. Bonham in person. When the charge was made, the enemy promptly retired, and the loss of those regiments was small. They pursued the enemy to Centreville, and took near one million dollars' worth of Federal property. It is believed that none of those regiments were killed, and but few wounded. Col. Jenkins' (S. C.) Regiment was in Gen. Jones' Brigade, and was situated some distance to the right of the general line near where the railway crosses Bull's Run.

Rawillegs, correspondent of the New York Commercial Advertiser; Captain Holliday, Capt. Edward Jenkins, Lieut. Small and private Small, of the Naval Brigade, and R. Shurtliff, left Hampton on Friday morning about 1 o'clock, on a scouting expedition. About daylight they were surprised by a party of Confederates near New Market, and at the f, being best known as the chief correspondent of Frank Leslie's Illustrated newspaper. He visited England at the time of the prize fight at Farnsborough.] Fortress Monroe, July 20.--A spy, who is just in from Great Bethel, reports that Captain Jenkins and Shurtliff were wounded yesterday and carried off as prisoners. The rebels had two killed. A company of Massachusetts men made a scout last night to Great Bethel. They report only fifty light horse at that point, but say that the C
