Dominion Rifles, of Alexandria, Va. die in battle, July 21, 1861, a gallant soldier and a good man." The retreat of the "grand Army." What a glorious day Sunday was for the South ! When the rout of the enemy came, down the long line of Bull Run (Yankee's Ran? --Eds.) up went a shout! Oh! how grand it was ! Imagine the quiet woods through which the watching bayonets glittered silently, suddenly alive with triumphant hurrahs ! From right to left, and left to right, for seven miles they

Gen. Longstreet's Brigade, consisting of 1st Regiment Virginia Volunteers, commanded by Col. Moore; 17th Regiment, Col. Corse, and 11th Regiment, Col. Garland, were ordered under arms and marched in ten minutes out of camp at Manassas on the morning of the 17th, and in quick time reached Bull Run, some four miles distant. We were posted in a bend or horse-shoe of the run on the inner circle and along the bank. As the movement was designed as an ambuscade, silence and secrecy were observed by the troops. We slept on our arms that night, and early in the morning were ready for action. About eight o'clock our force was posted by regiment and divisions at the most available points for defence around the circle and flanking above and below Blackburn's ford. It felt to the lot of the

The correspondent of the Herald ventures the opinion that the Army of the Potomac will not be kept long idle. The reorganization of the army proceeds with great rapidity, and it is probable Gen. McClellan will-strike as soon as he is ready, regardless of weather. Julius Bing, a naturalized Englishman, who was captured at Bull Run, has returned via Richmond and Mathias' Point. He wanted to return via Centreville, but he thought the route was unsafe. Mr. Bing was a mere spectator of the fight. The Ellsworth Fire Zouaves were paid off to-day. Washington, August 1.--Gen. McClellan is examining to see if any incompetency yet remains in the army. Eighteen Regiments of the three months volunteers have left for home.

We think that the importance of this victory is not over estimated in classing it amongst those great military achievements which in ancient and modern times have overthrown or marked the beginning of the downfall of Empires, kingdoms and revolutionary enterprises In other words it is now clearly made manifest that the armies of our revolted States cannot stand before the armies of the Union.

Spencer's Rifle Company took in the recent engagement upon Bull Run, I propose as briefly as possible to give the desired information through the medium of your interesting columns Some have errcy pecusly supposed that we were at Mitchell's Ford on Thursday, the 18th. We were not in any action until Sunday, the 21st. Early in the morning of that memorable day. we were stationed upon the road leading to Lewis' Ford. which we had been guarding with a sleepless vigilance for several days. While standing here with the other companies of our regiment, arranged around at various points for the defence of the ford, our Captain took the first prisoner taken that day — He was a spy belonging to an Ohio regiment.
