e a work at last for daring and for hard and bloody fighting. The mere investment of these works will make the Government's stay in Washington irksome and nervous; and even if there were little probability of success, the investment should be made. Any serious cannonading along those lines will stampedes the whole Lincoln fraternity from the city, and the chief object of taking the city would thus be accomplished by an attempt amounting to little more than a feint. The overthrow at Stone Bridge has put an end to all serious idea of invasion from the Northern forces for sometime. And even if they could renew their magnificent preparations for marching upon Richmond, they can never again get the courage of their men up to that point. Their best batteries are taken; their most effective artillery, and their horses almost all destroyed. --They cannot, for a long time, mature such an outfit as that which attended their grand army of invasion. But more than all, they will not be ab
An Editor fallen. --Among the killed at the battle of Stone Bridge was George T Slovall, editor of the Rome (Ga.) Southerner.
tch:--I have seen in different papers notices of meritorious conduct of officers and men engaged in the battle of Rich Mountain, but none deserve more credit for brave and soldierly conduct than Lieuts. Brown and Reger, and Dr. Cabell, of the Upshur Greys. They fought bravely during the battle, and after the order to retreat was given continued fighting until almost surrounded by the enemy, and then slowly retired, firing as they retreated. Hardy Blue. Manassas, July 26, 1861. To the Editors of the Dispatch:--Your correspondent, "D. G. D." in his statement of the battle of the 21st, at Bull's Run, (Stone Bridge.) says that the 4th South Carolina and Wheat's Louisiana Battalion opened the ball. I think he is mistaken. It was the 4th Alabama and 2d Mississippi Regiments, and they sustained the shock for one solid hour of the entire force of the enemy. I hope the correction will be made, and that men who fought so bravely may receive their due. An Alabamian.
llowing: 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 Bull'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. It is called the Manassas Junction.
Black Republican opinion of the battle. Louisville, July 29. --Mr. Raymond, the editorial correspondent of the N. Y. Times, says that on Sunday last, while the battle of Stone Bridge, or Bull Run, near Manassas was being fought, he telegraphed to his paper that the three Federal columns were more that maintaining their ground, and he assured his readers that he predicted the success of the Federal troops on the commencement of their route to the scene of action. At the closes the battle, and partly in advance of the "double-quick" retrograde movements of McDowell's disordered forces, Raymond hastened to Washington and added a postscript to his previous dispatches, in which he fairly states the result of the battle. 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.
