"Double Quick." --A popular military movement with the Northern army, taught by Beauregard in one easy lesson.--Louisville Courtier.
ing: We much prefer the name of Manassas to designate the great battle field of the 21st, to any of the other names so far employed.--Manassas is sonorous; it is Scriptural; it is connected in the Southern mind with so many associations of Beauregard's stand to check the Federal advance; it is the locality to which our troops fell back, and beyond which they would not fall back, weeks ago. The general idea of the battle arises at the mention of Manassas. It does not in connection with BullBull's Run or Stone Bridge. What name may finally take its historical place in the battle roll, we cannot say; but our vote is for Manassas, although, really, the leading position so long held by General Beauregard is far enough from the true Manassas, which is a gap in the Blue Ridge — Manassas Gap,--where as the battle-ground was in the neighborhood of the junction of the road which crosses the Blue Ridge at that Gap, with the Orange and Alexandria Road.

There could have been no rout; no loss of cannon; no throwing away of muskets and knapsacks. He continues: Destitute of artillery and cavalry, it is impossible fsame kind as those. We want ten thousand cavalry. An attack on Washington is apprehended, and upon this point the correspondent says: The greatest consternation prevails here among families and citizens generally. It is eared that Beauregard may attack the city my moment, and if so, that he will take it, it cannot be denied that there are some grounds for apprehension; but when the subject is examined, it is seen that such a thing is an attack on Washington can form no part of the
