tant of the regiment, Lieut. Charles L. Russell, showed conspicuous gallantry in defending their regimental colors during the retreat this side of Bull Run against a charge of cavalry. Col. Terry also commends the devotion of Doctors Douglas and Bacon to the wounded while under the hottest fire of artillery. Private Arnold Leach is also highly praised for having spiked three abandoned guns with a ramrod, and then bringing away two abandoned muskets. Col. Jameson, of the Second Maine regimentt Connecticut Volunteers, was set upon by three of the enemy, who undertook to make him a prisoner. The Lieut.-Col. killed one and drove off the other two of his assailants, and escaped. I observed the activity of Capts. Hawley and Chapman, Adjutant Bacon, and Lieut. Drake, on the field. Col. Chatfield, of the Third regiment Connecticut Volunteers, was gives special credit to Major Warner and Adjutant Duryee, for their coolness and energy in assisting to keep the men in line, and in urging th

Jones, with the Fifth South Carolina regiment, Col. Jenkins, and the Seventeenth and Eighteenth Mississippi regiments, Cols. Featherston and Burt moved round to gain the rear of the batteries over the hill. above Mitchell's Ford. Gen. Bonham, with the Third and Seventh South Carolina regiments, Cols. Williams and Bacon, moved up the hill in front. The enemy, though in considerable force, at once recoiled from the encounter; and, unlimbering their artillery, they made their way with the utmost rapidity in the direction of Centreville. It was too late for pursuit — too late to intercept the retreating columns from the west, already under rapid headway; and, with no serious loss, and after but a short and spirited engagement on the enemy's left, in which the Fifth Carolina regiment suffered to some extent,
onsisted of Jenkins' 5th South Carolina, and Bunt's 15th and Fetherstone's 18th regiments of Mississippi volunteers, with two brass 6-pounder guns of Walton's battery, and one company of cavalry. Longstreet's brigade covered Blackburn's Ford, and consisted of Moore's 1st, Garland's 11th and Crose's 17th regiments Virginia volunteers, with two 6-pounder brass guns of Walton's battery. Bonham's brigade held the approaches to Mitchell's Ford; it was composed of Kershaw's 2d, Williams' 3d, Bacon's 7th and Cash's 8th regiments South Carolina volunteers; of Shields' and Del Kemper's batteries, and of Flood's, Radford's, Payne's, Ball's, Wickman's and Powell's companies of Virginia cavalry, under Col. Radford. Cocke's brigade held the Fords below and in vicinity of the Stone Bridge, and consisted of Wither's 18th, Lieutenant-Colonel Strange's 19th, and R. T.

Floyd's acceptances --Their Legality.--Mr. Gilmore, attorney for Pierce & Bacon, bankers, who are innocent holders of Russell, Majors & Waddell's drafts, accepted by ex-Secretary Floyd, has obtained from Caleb Cushing, late Attorney General, an opinion on the question of the legality of said acceptances.--Mr. Cushing holds, oons of the Supreme Court in previous cases of the same nature, confirmed by acts of Congress: After explaining the legitimate manner in which Messrs. Pierce & Bacon became possessed of the acceptances, Mr. Cushing asks as to the question of possible fraud on the part of the ex-Secretary, "How could Messrs. Pierce & Bacon conceBacon conceive or entertain such cause of inquiry? How could they anticipate such an extraordinary incident as the abstraction of the trust bonds in the Interior Department? It would be scandalous, immoral, oppressive, intolerable, to assume that every private citizen of the United States who has to deal incidentally with any department of

Earle, and other officers, were killed. Captain Poole was severely, if not mortally, wounded. Captain Kilpatrick was also wounded, and, it is feared, severely so. There were about a dozen officers and quite a number of privates killed, but their names were not remembered. Col. Williams' 3d Regiment, Col. Bacon's 7th, together with Col. Kirkland's North Carolina and Col. Kelley's Louisiana regiments, constituted the centre of the general line, and held Mitchell's Ford, on the direct line from Fairfax Court-House to Manassas. These regiments were under a cannonade from sunrise until near sunset, but being entrenched they suffered but little. Just before sundown, and when the right of the enemy gave way, they were ordered to charge the batteries in their front, which they executed in gallant styl
