Manassas Junction, July 21.
--A battle, lasting ten hours, was fought at Stone Bridge to-day.

Gen. Beauregard is again victorious.

The slaughter on both sides is tremendous.

Gen. Beauregard had a miraculous escape from death. He had his horse shot from under him while leading Hampton's Legion into action.

Gen. Johnston seized the colors of a wavering regiment and rallied them to the charge.

It is impossible to estimate the number of the dead and wounded.

It is reported that the Federal Commander, Gen. McDowell, was mortally wounded.

On our side, Col. and acting General, Brigadier General Francis Bartow, of Georgia, was mortally wounded, and is since reported dead.

The battle commenced at 8 o'clock A. M., and closed at 6 P. M., with the enemy in full retreat, pursued by our cavalry:

President Davis arrived on the battle field after the action had commenced.
