In a trotting match on Long Island, July 25th, Ethan Allen won the first heat and Flora Temple the second, and the race, owing to Ethan and mate running away with their driver, Flora trotted this heat in 2 20½. Among the Hessians killed in the late battle was Col. Wm. D. Kennedy, brother of the New York Superintendent of Police. There is a rumor in Alexandria that David Funsten, Esq., was shot in the battle at Ball Run. No volunteers will hereafter be received into the Hessian service who cannot speak the English language.

P-r-e-d-i-g-f-o-u-s !!! Old Bennety says: "We do not believe the Emperor of the French will take any step hostile or injurious to us, unless the English Government leads the way. Should England enter into any such dangerous career, she will rue the day that her rulers have committed her to a deadly struggle with this young giant Republic." The Lord have mercy upon us! England rue the day when she enters into a struggle with the "Bull Runners!" Possibly she might, if the question were of a quarter race or a race against time, for the English are a plethoric generation. But they have innumerable packs of greyhounds, and though they may not get near enough to shoot a Yankee, they can catch any number of prisoners with these animals. Let not Bennett trust too much to Yankee fleetness. Let him not be led astray by the pedestrian feats of Ball Run.

The public will devour the present report with the utmost avidity; it will be read with admiration abroad, and will command respect even among the Yankees. But its "success"--to use the booksellers' phrase — will be small in comparison with the forthcoming description of the "battle." All those who are desirous to possess a narrative of this campaign, at once clear comprehensive, and elegant, should preserve Beauregard's reports as they come out.--They will be invaluable to the future historian.

From the way things are going on in Lincoln a dominions we suppose it will soon be fine and imprisonment to say "Ball Run," and a hanging matter to mention the Fairfax Races.
