ive an order to retreat, I cannot say of my own knowledge. I am assured by one who was with him that he did, and by others that he also failed to preserve his self control. If this be so, we shall know of it in time; but all we can now be sure of, is the afflicting fact of our utter and absolute rout. How nearly one great object of the day had been accomplished may be understood when it is known that Gen. Tyler and Gen. McDowell had actually met. Many who came into battle with Colonel Heintzelman and Col. Hunter, fired by the road over which Gen. Tyler had advanced. In the race from a fancied danger, all divisions and all regiments are mingled. There was not even an attempt to cover the retreat of Tyler's division. With Heintzelmans it was better, Lieut. Drummond's cavalry troop keeping firm line, and protecting the artillery until its abandonment was imperatively ordered. The extent of the disorder was unlimited. Regulars and volunteers shared it alike. A more fraction
ports of the Federal Colonels in regard to the late battle. Brigadier General Tyler and Colonels Hunter, Burnside, Heintzelman and Miles, have furnished their reports to Gen. McDowell, and they are made a portion of his report of the battle of Mon overset, and the passage completely obstructed After this, the column could not be rallied for two or three miles Col. Heintzelman's most important statement is that the Zouaves were led by himself against a partly concealed Alabama regiment; but , did not appear again on the field. Many of the men joined other regiments, and did good service as skirmishers."--Col. Heintzelman's description of the breaking up of the Brooklyn Fourteenth is equally minute. He attributes it to the lack of discipline. It was doubtless in this division that the disaster of the day began. Colonel Heintzelman does not mince matters at all, but says that it was impossible to rally his troops; he excuses them by saying that "few of the enemy could at any tim
Reception of the Ellsworth Zouaves in New York. --Colonel Heintzelman's report, and the severe comments of some of the New York city papers on the conduct of the Ellsworth Zouaves at Bull Run, had the effect of causing a very chilling reception on their return to that city on Wednesday. The World remarks editorially: The public reception of Ellsworth's Fire Zouaves yesterday was in such marked contrast to the greeting extended to the Eighth, Sixty-ninth and Seventy-first Regiments, who also participated in the Bull Run disaster, that it deserves more than a passing notice, and points a moral which it is to be hoped will be headed by other volunteer organizations. While the latter regiments have been received by our citizens with every mark of favor and approbation in acknowledgment of their unquestioned gallantry on the field, the Zouaves passed through the densely crowded streets in silence, broken only by a few feeble cheers, bestowed upon them in pity by personal

The circumstances under which the Bermuda effected an entrance into Savannah, will probably be made the subject of a court-martial.--One thing is certain — the Bermuda will never go out again, except for condemnation and sale. The Patriotism of Ohio. Ohio has sixty regiments in the field, and forty more are organizing. Twenty regiments of this great army are cavalry and three artillery. Commands assigned. General Heintzelman is assigned to the command af a division in Virginia, comprising the brigades of Generals Sedgwick, Richardson, and Butterfield. Gen. John Newton is assigned to a brigade under Gen. Franklin. Col. Sir John De Courcy, distinguished in the Crimean war, has been commissioned by Governor Dennison Colonel of the Sixty-ninth Ohio regiment, and will leave to-morrow to take command. Capts. John Mason and Crook, of the regular army, are also to have Ohio Colonelcies. Postal Deficits of t
Mr. Russell's first letter-concerning the battle of Bull Run were subsequently softened down, still they went where corrections never reach, and on the whole, our military, as well as our institutions, are much of a laughing stock. --The editorials of the Times contribute to the same end, and, unless the press of Continental Europe have correspondents of their own in this country, we shall only be seen through the medium of John Bullism. Report gives the name of Generals McDowell, Heintzelman, and Stone, as officers who are to have corps d'armce commands. The necessity of such organization is attested by general European practice, and should the war continue, appropriate rank will doubtless be authorized. In the Confederate army the highest grade is General. So here we may adopt the same title, giving that of Lieutenant General to commanders of corps d'armce. The session of the city council this evening attracts visitors, as the resolution passed by the aldermen for go

ms. The rebel batteries on the Potomac. The Herald's story, that the rebel batteries extend twenty miles along the Potomac, is a "tis well told." The fact is, that the batteries extend only five miles, and are not so formidable that they cannot be silenced. The rebel steamer Page has been obliged to take refuge in Occoquan Creek, and, from the rapidly with which our lines are reaching that point, there seems a fair probability of her inland communications being soon cut off. Gen. Heintzelman's pickets already extended below Pohick Church, and a glance at the map will show his proximity to the Occoquan. I am sure that the rebels will not have long to boast of their temporary blockade of the Potomac, and that we shall have our bivalve, as fresh as ever. The friends of good oysters, are, however, impatient for the welcome days The estate of John A.

o grand. (Signed) Geo. B. McClellan, Maj. Gen. Commanding U. S. A. The Washington correspondent of the New York Times, writing under date of the 1st inst., communicates the following interesting intelligence: The advance of Heintzelman's pickets. Gen. Heintzelman's pickets continue to advance down the Virginia shore, having crossed the Occoquan. The pickets are very strong, one company of each regiment being constantly on that duty. No trace of the rebels, in any forceGen. Heintzelman's pickets continue to advance down the Virginia shore, having crossed the Occoquan. The pickets are very strong, one company of each regiment being constantly on that duty. No trace of the rebels, in any force, has been seen in this direction, for ten weeks. Occasionally a stray rebel is seen, but they all maintain a respectful distance. Passes to go South. The number of persons applying to go South has so increased of late as to give rise to inquiry as to the cause. It seems that there are Secession emissaries and lawyers in many of the Northern cities, who are advising their clients to comply with the call of Jeff. Davis, requiring all Southern property-holders to come South under penalty
answered individually, there is authority for saying that thus far no decision has been made in regard to permitting trade in Beaufort or its vicinity. Gen. Heintzelman's reconnaissance. The reconnaissance under Gen. Heintzelman, on the 12th inst., was the most thorough that has been made, and was executed in consequenceGen. Heintzelman, on the 12th inst., was the most thorough that has been made, and was executed in consequence of a demonstration having been made by the enemy the day before. The whole country was examined, and the 400 rebel cavalry that have been annoying the people of Pohick Church, were driven out.--The main body of the force marched 22 miles. I have before stated, that a company of the Lincoln cavalry, under Capt. Todd, strayed away from a portion of Gen. Sedgwick's brigade, under command of Col. Berry. Gen. Heintzelman states that the loss sustained by the movement was from the negligence of the officers in command of the cavalry, who permitted their men to straggle in the presence of the enemy, and to plunder.--Of the Lincoln Cavalry, Sergeant O'Brien
Charleston pilot boat of about 80 tons burden. Deserters from the Confederate Army. The Washington Star, of the 6th inst., has the following items of interest: Yesterday, Lieuts. Bigelow and Brown, of Michigan, brought into General Heintzelman's quarters eight deserters from the rebel army, of which five were privates, two sergeants, and one captain. They relate, with every appearance of sincerity, a pitiable story of the suffering condition of the rebel army. Their food is scpicious person. The Washington correspondent of the New York Herald, dated the 6th inst., says: Yesterday a Virginia farmer named Richard Lacy, who is suspected of having given aid and comfort to the enemy, came inside the lines of Gen. Heintzelman's division near the Quaker Church, in the vicinity of Accotink, with the ostsible purpose of hauling wood to ship from Dage creek. Both he and a river captain, who accompanied him, were sent to the Provost Marshal, at Alexandria. A St
the demand note bill, already reported. More Confederate prisoners brought into camp — how the Secessionists carry information to the enemy. Washington, Jan. 15. --Six more prisoners were yesterday brought within the lines of General Heintzelman's division. They were captured on Mason's Neck, a mile and a half from Colchester, which is on the Occoquon, by the Sixty-third Pennsylvania Regiment, Colonel Hayes, in General Jameson's brigade. The regiment has just returned from picke. In December last, after five months imprisonment, he was released on his parole of honor, and having been sent to Old Point Comfort, went by the way of Manassas, Centreville, and Fairfax Court-House, to his home, just outside the lines of Gen. Heintzelman's command. Although he asserts that he has not given any aid and comfort to the enemy since his release, there appears to be sufficient evidence to prove that he has grossly violated his parole of honor. A month or more ago his wife, in co
