“Bully for you.” --The word Bull is destined to become famous in this war. If our men did run from Bull Run, we have now an offset in the fact that the rebels, under Gen. Henry A. Wise, did also run from Bull's Town. So we now have Bull against Bull, and the bully of Accomac is the set-off, who set off so bravely to do what he could not accomplish. “Bully for you.”
There was a man of Accomac,
     And he was bully Wise;
He jumped into Kanawha's bush,
     And scratched out both his eyes;
And, when he saw he lost his eyes,
     With all his might and main,
From Kanawha he quickly flies,
     To brag, and — run again.

--National Republican, Aug. 5.
