pass--Lieut. Warley. A gentleman in New Orleans, writing to a friend in this city, speaks as follows of this engagement, and of the officer who may be fairly considered the hero of it: "No doubt before this you have seen in the papers full accounts of the affair of the 12th. It was a very bold and well-executed enter-prise, and the "hero" of the party is Lieut. Warley, of South Carolina. He commanded the steam ram (which the people of New Orleans have christened 'Manassas' or 'Bull Run') that ran into the Richmond at four A. M. This, with the four ships, constituted such a novel style of warfare, and spread such consternation among the enemy, that all their ships, four or five in number, slipped their cables and fled down the river. The suspense of those on board the other vessels for the fate of their brave companions was for some time very painful; but when daylight came, and they saw that the enemy had fled, their joy was complete. They all pursued him down the river

Up to this date, since the 15th, no steamer has passed uninjured. Of course we do not care to waste powder upon the numberless schooners, flats, and oyster boats that go from the city. It will be time enough to attend to them when the marine corps is organized. The light batteries on the show do very good service and throw shot with great precision. In this affair two were engaged--one under Capt. R. Snowden Andrew, and the other under Capt. B. Lindsay Walker. The General speaks of both these gentlemen in terms of great p I do not hear of anything new in Centreville or its vicinity. Opinion seems to be nearly equally divided upon the question whether or not the Federals will come out. I believe the majority think McClellan will be forced to fight, but possibly not on Bull Run.
