to Fairfax, where Col. Woodbury was expecting and guarding against a flank movement of the enemy, and on again to Long Bridge and the Potomac. But the van of the runaway soldiers had made such time that. I found a host of them at the Jersey entrenchments, begging the sentinels to allow them to cross the bridge. To day we learn of the safe retreat of the main body of the army; that they were feebly followed by the rebels as far as Fairfax, but are now within the Arlington lines, and that McDowell, a stunned and vanquished General, is overlooking the wreck of his columns from his old quarters at the Custis mansion. Scenes in Alexandria. Before proceeding to lay before our readers the comments of the Northern press generally, we make some extracts from that honest journal, the Baltimore Exchange. An Alexandria correspondent writes: This town has been to day the theatre of events and spectacles, the like of which have never before been witnessed on this continent. T

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.
he First Michigan Regiment continued to arrive in town all the morning. They make their headquarters at Woodward's Buildings. There are in all of those arrived about fifty. The Second New York Regiment arrived in the city by way of the Georgetown Aqueduct. They have lost about 150 men, in killed, wounded and missing. The regiment is in good condition, and the men in fine spirits.--They led the advance and assisted to protect the retreat, and were desirous of remaining behind with Gen. McDowell, but were nevertheless ordered to barrack in the city, having lost their camp equipage, which had been sent far forward, to be out of the way of the field manŒuvres. A "Horrible" Lin. A Northern paper ventilates the following: Capt. Downey, of the Fire Zouaves, was wounded on the field of battle, and his body was afterwards found literally cut in pieces. It was divided into four quarters! A Zouave, who was taken prisoner with six others, and subsequently effected his
