icans only can show. I proceed to give you, as near as I can, a full and detailed history of that terrible battle, which will, through all time, make famous Bull Run and the plains of Manassas. On Friday, the 19th, Gen. Joseph E. Johnston, who had commanded the army of the Shenandoah, posted at Winchester, arrived at Manon the enemy were gathering in great force, and designed turning our left flank, which rested a few miles above the scene of Thursday's engagement, at a ford on Bull's Run called Stone Bridge. We retired to rest under the full conviction that on the morrow the fortunes of our young nation were to be staked on a mighty contestis politeness we were permitted to see. The day was bright and beautiful — on the left, was the Blue Ridge, and in front were the slopes on the North side of Bull Run crowned with woods, in which the enemy had early planted his batteries, and all around us were eminences on which were posted small but anxious knots of spectato
d others who were either actively engaged in or spectators to the conflict at Bull's Run, on Thursday last. Gentlemen from this city, who rode out yesterday to the setter from a prominent and reliable source — a party engaged in the action of Bull's Run, dated the day following, has been shown me. It does not hesitate in calling First Massachusetts. A very intelligent gentleman, who left the scene at Bull's Run late yesterday afternoon, who took pains to inform himself, says he saw twentn, who distinguished himself in the previous engagement with the batteries at Bull's Run, proceeded on the left with four regiments of the 4th brigade, to hold the Fe. A number of members of Congress and even ladies went to the neighborhood of Bull Run to witness the battle. One of these members reports that Col. Hunter, of the eorganize and enter the service for three years. This regiment was engaged at Bull's Run, and report twenty of their number killed and one wounded, the latter of whom

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. They were not in the fight until late in the afternoon, when they made an unsuccessful attempt to storm the battery on the extreme left of the enemy's line. In this gallant charge they suffered considerably, but the particulars, as to the killed and wounded, are not yet ascertained. I have not yet been able to obtain detailed reports of the killed and wounded in any of the South Carolina regiments or Hampton's Legion. The following is a list of the killed and wounded in the Ma
Gen. Butler. It is "an ill wind that blows nobody any good," and doubtless Gen. Butler feels the full force of the consolations which Manassas supplies. The country will now perceive, reflects Gen. Butler, that other great Generals besides Bembastes Furioso are subject to misfortunes. Whipping Southern troops is a thing not as easily done as said, and if there was a Bethel Church, there is also a Manassas. We congratulate Benjamin upon this timely relief. There are now three distinct and unequivocal Southern victories, against the most tremendous odds, to one Southern reverse. Bethel Church, Bull Run, and the battle of the 21st, must convenes the most incredulous that the march of an invading army through the South is to be no holiday pageant. The men that inhabit the Confederate States prefer death to a life of subjection. They have men enough to defend their suit, and any deficiency in arms they are coast supplying by taking the weapons of their enemies.
A Federal Congressman on the fight at Bull Run. In a letter published in the Baltimore Sun of Saturday, from the Hon. Wm. A. Richardson, member of Congress from Illinois, who professes to be an eye-witness of the scene of the engagement at Bull Run, he states that the action was commenced by Gen. Tyler, of Connecticut, at half-past 1 o'clock on Thursday--that the Michigan, Maine and Wisconsin regiments stood their ground bravely, while the New York Twelfth and Massachusetts regiments run wBull Run, he states that the action was commenced by Gen. Tyler, of Connecticut, at half-past 1 o'clock on Thursday--that the Michigan, Maine and Wisconsin regiments stood their ground bravely, while the New York Twelfth and Massachusetts regiments run with all their might, throwing away their arms, knapsacks, and in fact everything that impeded their progress. The men say that their officers lack courage and were the first to "take the back track. " It seems that the only regiments who could be relied on in their greatest emergency were composed of foreigners — the New York 69th (Irish,) and the 79 the (Scotch.) The writer gives it as his opinion that Manassas cannot be taken with 50,000 men in two months, and that the North has been greatly
s of his victorious comrades. But when the conflict ceases and the smoke of the cannon rolls away, and the returning column sorrowly seeks its slain upon the blood-stained ground many a heart swells with anguish, many an eye fills with tears to see the prostrate form and meet the dying glance of well-loved friends and brother, the foremost in the desperate fight. One of the immortal Seven, who sealed in death their devotion to liberty and their native South in the brilliant victory at Bull Run, on Thursday, July 18th, was Carter H. Harrison, Major in the 17th Virginia Regiment, one of the heroic leaders whose men so gallantly fought and won the battle of that day. "None knew him but to love him" --of a nature at once gentle and brave, a tender, high-souled, chivalrous man; young in years, old in heroism, foremost in duty, highest in honor — among the first to fall. The friends who loved and mourn him, those who saw him-- "Walking his round of duty, Serenely day by day, Wi
