Black Republican opinion of the battle.
Louisville, July 29.
, the editorial correspondent of the N. Y. Times
, says that on Sunday last, while the battle of Stone Bridge
, or Bull Run
, near Manassas
was being fought, he telegraphed to his paper that the three Federal columns were more that maintaining their ground, and he assured his readers that he predicted the success of the Federal
troops on the commencement of their route to the scene of action.
At the closes the battle, and partly in advance of the ‘"double-quick"’ retrograde movements of McDowell
's disordered forces, Raymond
hastened to Washington
and added a postscript to his previous dispatches, in which he fairly states the result of the battle.
The telegraph censor in the Washington Telegraph Office refused to allow the postscript to be sent — a least so states Mr. Raymond
in the N. Y Times
of Friday morning.
