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.
An officer of the army who arrived from Washington at half-past 4 o'clock this afternoon, states that not less than 1,000 wounded were brought into the various hospitals in Washington to-day. He further states that during the retreat from Bull's Run, a rumor having gained currency that all the Fire Zouaves taken by the Confederates were put to death, a party of Zouaves broke into the hospital at Centreville, and killed the few wounded Confederate prisoners who were there. A letter froe Federal Generals. They had thrown up works at Centreville which they never intended to use, and as soon as the army arrived, they would retreat, leaving baggage and provisions, &c., to indicate a hasty retreat — This course was pursued up to Bull's Run, when masked batteries without number played upon the Federal right, left and centre-- If a battery was taken, another opened upon its flank, and the captured battery was soon retaken by the Confederates. The fight continued thus for nine hour
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.
dent of the United States. He cannot fail now to comprehend the dangers and duties of his critical position. Washington is in great peril. The loyal States, within three days, May dispatch 20,000 men to that point; and if we succeed in holding the Capital for twenty days, we may have by that time an army of 200,000 men entrenched around it. [From the New York Express.] The record we make, we are deeply pained to see and to say, is rather of a rout than of a battle, beyond the Bull's Run batteries — and the record is the most painful we have ever had to make in our long life of editorial experience. The loss of life must be deplorable, as well as the loss of war material — and when we receive the details, we fear they will be agony to families and friends. The public effiction, however, is now so great that private grief is all absorbed in the great calamity. The "On to Richmond" nonsense we have been having from campaign editors, in their sky-high attice and closet
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.
ysicians and surgeons in this city are busy attending to the wounded, and some have been sent for from Baltimore An immense number of arms and legs have been amputated. The groans of some of the wounded, as they are brought in, are agonizing. The Cabinet have been in session ever since Monday morning, with an intermission from one till twelve this morning. Just as I close it is rumored that a courier has passed our lines blindfolded, and has been conducted to headquarters. It is said he beefs a communication from Jeff. Davis to the President. Conjecture is wild as to its contents, but they may be interred from his former one. This is no doubt a repetition of it, and a demand for recognition. The New York 71st, a crack regiment, which suffered awfully at Bull's Run, is going home. There is great discontent among the Zouaves, as they have not been paid one cent by New York. The loss of this regiment was more than one half; in one company of 97 men 50 are lost.
