The Daily Dispatch: July 19, 1861., [Electronic resource],
Gen. Jesse Clemens
From Washington. Washington, July 17. --It is reported here that it is the design of the Federal Generals to avoid Manassas. It is their announced intention, however, to allow no delay in pushing on to Richmond. Reports received here from Arizona and New Mexico represent the secession feeling strong in those regions. It is regarded necessary to reinforce Fort Bliss. It is reported here, in official quarters, that the Southern forces at Aquia Creek, Damfrice, and at several other points, are falling back on Manassas. It is believed that J. N. Pickett, into American Consul at Vera Cruz, is at Fortress Monroe. The Third and Fourth Massachusetts Regiments, whose time is up, will leave immediately for Boston.
