Doc. 4.-N. Y. Tribune narrative. A correspondent of the New York Tribune writing from Washington, under date of July 23, gives the following account of the battle: My narrative of this extraordinary battle can accurately embrace most of what occurred with the division under Gen. Tyler, which opened the attack, which was, with the exception of one brigade, desperately engaged from the beginning to the end, and which, so far as I can judge from the course in which events ran, was the last to yield before the panic which spread through the army. It is well understood that the conflict extended over a space of many miles, and that the experience of a single observer could grasp only those details which immediately surrounded him. The general progress and effects of the entire engagement were apparent from the advanced positions of Gen. Tyler's action, and of these it will be possible for me to speak safely; but the particular movement of the divisions under Col. Hunter and Col. He

At two o'clock this morning I arrived in Washington, having witnessed the great conflict near Manassas Junction from beginningWashington, having witnessed the great conflict near Manassas Junction from beginning to end, and the gigantic rout and panic which broke up the Federal army at its close. I stayed near the action an hour or two later than my associates, in order to gather the final incidents of the mp, reviewed the Third Tyler brigade, passed a few hours with Gen. McDowell, and then left for Washington, in spirits depressed by no premonition of the disaster which was to befall our arms, and the lace some of the enemy's rifled shell were thrown. It was heard at Fairfax, at Alexandria, at Washington itself. Five or six heavy batteries were in operation at once, and to their clamor was added g allowed to pass through. Some thousands of the soldiery had already got far on their way to Washington. Poor fellows! who could blame them? Their own colonels had deserted them, only leaving ord
ot obey this command, but started off at a good pace into what we supposed was Maryland. We had not gone far before we came to another stream, which we waded. We afterwards ascertained that we had crossed Edward's Island about 17 miles from Washington. Before losing sight of our pursuers, Capt. Allen showed his pistol, and shook it in defiance of them. This was the only weapon, with the exception of the knife, we had among us. This was about half-past 5 Sunday morning. Finding ourselves am half-past 5 Sunday morning. Finding ourselves among friends, we walked five miles to Great Falls, where we laid down and rested till noon. On waking we resumed our march, and reached the arsenal at nine at night, where we found our picket-guard of Second Vermont regiment. They received us kindly, provided us with supper, and furnished us with a bed. The next morning we all hurried on to Washington, and telegraphed our safe arrival to our friends. * * * * * * E. P.

At this stage of the game the enemy was telegraphing to Washington that the battle had been won, and secession was about to be crushs again fallen back, it looks as though they were on their way to Washington.

Whether he stopped this side of Alexandria or Washington, does not appear. In his route, he left equipage and baggage, an coast survey records, showing the topography of the country from Washington to Manassas, it was evident that the plan of action had been mappin eternal communion.

Accomplished military men have shook their heads at all this, but they have constantly said things were going on splendidly, and the right result would come it of our main army brought about. Meantime, in the general anxiety, we must remember that the strong fortifications which General Scott wisely erected opposite Washington will give our troops a rallying point, where they will make a stand.--N. Y. Evening Post. This defeat will in no degree weaken the Northern country or the Noed our army, after it had conquered an equal force entrenched behind earthworks and masked batteries. Our retreating columns have fallen back to Alexandria and Washington, leaving hundreds of our brave fellows on the soil where they fell so heroically. But why recount the disasters of yesterday? What is to be done? Every thi

It is confessed in all its greatness and completeness by the wailings which come to us from the city of Washington, the Headquarters of our enemies. It is told in the groans of the panic-stricken Unionists of tyranny, who are quaking behind their entrenchments with apprehension for the approach of the avenging soldiery of the South, driving before it the rteries, and sent him howling and panic-stricken from the field of the fight. The blow, in its moral and its physical effects, will prove of incalculable advantage to the Southern cause. The first regiment of the enemy that crossed over from Washington — the Zouaves of Ellsworth — have fled from the field with only two hundred left of the entire regiment. Retributive justice has overtaken the first of the enemy who put their feet upon the sacred soil of Virginia, and from six to eight hundre

We have far more in common with Washington than with Vienna; and in calumniating the frfidence in the prospects of the country. At Washington, finance observes the old forms of Union, anl respond to the call. So the Congress of Washington is looking the difficulty, as they say there millions in two years.

The opinion was, however, that it would bent afflicts the United States the Cabinet at Washington has acted in strict conformity with public l

This hope was cherished by the Union men North and South, and was never abandoned until actual war was levied at Charleston, and the authoritative announcement made by the revolutionary government at Montgomery that the secession flag should be planted upon the walls of the Capitol at Washington, and a proclamation issued inviting the pirates of the world to prey upon the commerce of the United States. These startling facts, in connection with the boastful announcement that the ravages of war and carnage should be quickly transferred from the cotton fields of the South to the wheat fields and corn fields of the North, furnish conclusive evidence that it was the fixed purpose of the secessionists utterly to destroy the government of our fathers and obliterate the United States f
