Complimented. --Mr. Z. C. McGruder, formerly a clerk in the Richmond Post-Office, and now a member of Capt. Walker's Battery, lately stationed near Aquia Creek, was complimented personally by Gen. Beauregard on Sunday, during the battle at Manassas. --When Walker's company (the Purcell Battery) commenced their fire, the first gun was aimed by McGruder, a Richmond boy, whose haves was so evident among the enemy that the commanding General did the gunner the honor of requesting his name. Pman is praise indeed. The Purcell Battery did its full duty last Sunday. There is an affinity between Artallery and McGruder. We are informed that the Second Tennessee Regiment, Col. Bater, and First Arkansas Regiment, Col. James F. Fegan, were both in Sunday's battle, and acted gloriously. Gen. Beauregard was so pleased with the performance of the Purcell Battery that he presented it with one of the splendid brass rifle cannon taken from the enemy. The battery is now at Aquia Greek.
From Manassas. There were many rumors in circulation yesterday, relative to Gen. Beauregard's operations, the burning of Alexandria, &c., which had no foundation in fact. That important movements are going on in that direction, is probable; and we advise every one to place no confidence in flying rumors, but patiently await the issue. The Central train last evening brought no news of importance.
until he was wounded. His horse having been killed under him, he was on foot with sword in one hand and revolver in the other, about fifty yards from the enemy, when a Minnie ball struck him. He fell and lay over an hour, when, fortunately, Gen. Beauregard and Staff, and Capt. McCausland, passed. The generous McCausland dismounted and placed Dickinson on his horse. Of the bravery of Lieut. D., it is not necessary to say a word, when a man so well noted for chivalry as Robert Wheat has saat it was Colonel J. A. Early, at the head of his gallant brigade, who charged upon and took the Sherman battery. The Virginian has this from a returned soldier who was in the fight on Sunday, and has learned it from several other sources. Gen. Beauregard pronounced it the most splendid military achievement he ever witnessed. Col. James Preston, of Montgomery, bore a conspicuous and gallant part in the capture of the battery, and was the first to lay his hand upon a gun, for which offenc
irectly to Richmond. He has already reached Fairfax Court- House, and will, by to-morrow night, have possession of Manassas Junction. Gen. Patterson moves toward Winchester, driving Johnston toward Manassas or Richmond, where he will join Beauregard, and the two conduct the Confederate Army south of Richmond. Gen. McClellan will go to Staunton, .; thence to East Tennessee, where he will make every arrangement to move on Nashville and Memphis. While Gen. McClellan is moving towardin the shape of a V, he fell back fourteen miles upon Charlestown, with the idea of getting in his rear by a circuitous route. But meantime Johnston's services are wanted at Manassas Junction, and he gets off with his army to the assistance of Beauregard. Under these circumstances it is understood the Government will remove him from the command, and appoint in his stead Gov.Banks, giving the command of Banks to Gen. Dix. As far as Dix is concerned this might answer very well, for he would not

The instructions were at once given, greatly to the credit of the sagacity of the President, ix miles further from Manassas than he was, in order to draw him off from the reinforcement of Beauregard. He was satisfied that he was to be indulged in no battle, and that his adversary's intention the enemy. The concentration of the flower of his troops for the grand demonstration against Beauregard's left wing, and the ordering down of Patterson, with his fine batteries for that decisive bloght than were those of Gen. Scott by one of his once most favorite pupils. We believe that Gen. Beauregard would have managed by genius and bravery to have maintained his position, even if Johnston
General Beauregard. On Monday, President Davis, while at Manassas Junction, raised this gallant General from the rank of a Brigadier to the rank of a full General, in token of his admiration of the achievement of Sunday, the 21st. A well deserved honor.
