t in the city and a War agreement for a Stance. On Saturday night I resolved to proceed to Gen. McDowell's army, as it was obvious to me that the repulse at Bull Run and the orders of the General directed against the excess of his soldiery indicated serious defects in his army — not more serious, however, than I had reason tohe mouthpiece of the more violent civilians of the Government, who mistake intensity of feeling for military strength. The consequence of the little skirmish at Bull Run, ng in the repulse of the Federalists, were much exaggerated, and their losses were put down at any figures the fancy of the individual item who was speaking su because, he said, "the troops are green, and no one can tell what may happen." But my friend got his pass from General Scott, who was taking the whole affair of Bull Run and the pressure of the morrows' work with perfect calm, and we started on Sunday morning--not so early is we ought perhaps, which was none of my hair — for Cent
The London "Times" on Bull Run — Russell, &c. We publish to day the long expected letter on the far famed correspondent of the London Times. Mr. W. H. Russell, on the Bull Run , of which he may say: --" lone miserima , pain m g a " We think our readers will agree with us is considering it a wretched failure, wanting alike in graphic detail, animated narrative, and every incident that can lead interest to a report of the fight and flight of Manassas.--The description which we pthe writer, cursed above all others of his generation, with the mania for fine writing.--It was not so when he was in the Crimes, or in India.

were represented to the rusk, and may say that we saw it with our own eyes and heard the cannonade with our own ears — There is a probability also, that the number of men present at the battle amounts to the high figure of 150,000 for both accounts seen to agree upon this. Beyond these facts, however, everything seems vague and uncertain. The advance of the "grand army of the Potomac" reads in the American papers like a burlesque of Xerxes to the Hellespont. The great Federal victory of Bull Run, which was flashed over the Northern States and recorded in the Northern papers, was a thing hovering for hours, while yet in print, upon the confines of fancy and possibility. The abject rout, the ultimate reality, was what we could have least believed Perhaps we ought to have anticipated that the same ferocious men who had burnt up the homesteads on their line of march would speed back over the embers with pale faces in their panic fight. But this never did occur to us. It requires the
Yankee Inventions. Now England has never shown such inventive power as in the gigantic falsehoods which have been manufactured during this war.--Except the single disaster to Gen. Garnett's foress, which was the result of treachery, the Confederate troops have gained every battle--Bethel, Bull Run, Manassas, and the late battle is Missouri. Yet, every one of them late been so misrepresented by Northern that the people in that section really believe they have only met with one defeat.
