On the 28th of July, Generals Johnston and Beauregard issued a joint address to their soldiers, which was full of exultd in predictions of the future, instead of directing Johnston and Beauregard to press on after the fugitives and capture Washington City, the ngues were jubilant, their hearts were misgiving. Johnston and Beauregard desired to press on, but the wisdom and the prudence of the firstes to be established near the army; and on the day of the battle, Beauregard had only a single day's rations for his troops.

whose head was considered a usurper by the Orleans family, had just left this country for his own. It was the Prince Jerome Bonaparte, a cousin of the Emperor Napoleon the Third, who, with his wife, had arrived in New York in the preceding July, in his private steam yacht. He went to Washington, where he was entertained by the President, and visited the Houses of Congress and the army on Arlington Heights and vicinity. He passed through the lines and visited the Confederate forces under Beauregard, at Manassas. Returning to New York, he started on a tour to Niagara, Canada, and the Western prairies, with the princess. At the middle of September, he went from New York to Boston and Halifax in his yacht, and so homeward. It was only a few days before Prince Jerome's departure from New York that the Prince de Joinville arrived there, with members of his family. He came to place his son, the Duke of Penthievre (then sixteen years of age), in the Naval School at Newport. He brough

The National loss consisted of seven killed and sixty wounded; and their gain was a victory, and sixteen wagon-loads of excellent hay, and twenty-two of corn. Stuart reported his loss at forty-three killed and one hundred and forty-three wounded. Report of General McCall, December 20, 1861; also, General Stuart to General Beauregard, December 21, 1861. He had been induced to attack superior numbers by the foolish boast of Evans, that he had encountered and whipped four to his one; and he tried to console his followers by calling this affair a victory for them, because McCall did not choose to hold the battle-field, but leisurely withdrew to his encampment. This little victory greatly inspired the loyal people, for it gave them the assurance that the troops of the Army of the Potomac were ready and able to fight b

W. Smith, who had been an active democratic politician in New York city, was appointed to succeed him at Manassas. On leaving the army at Manassas, Beauregard issued a characteristic address to them, telling them he hoped soon to be back among them.
