CONNECTED ACCOUNT OF TliE
UAOEMENT V HULL RUN.
Mr. Raymond of the New York Times, who
was on the field, gives the most concise and
connected narration of the battle that has jet
tutorial Correspondence of lh New York Times,
VVisuiNurov, Monday Morning, July 22.
I came In from Ceutreville last evening for
the express purposo of sending jou the latest
intelligence of the great battle of yesterday. I
left Centrevllle at half-past tire five, and reached
hare at tniduigbt, I sent a dispatch to the office,
bat, M it Is to be subjected to the censorship of
the Government, which gives no hint of what it
refuses permission to pass, I have no means of
knowing whether its content reached you or
not. 1 must, therefore, repeat Its contents.
TLo battle yesterday was one of the most
severe and sanguinary ever fought ca this con
tiutut, and it ended in the failure of tho
Union troops to hold all the positions which
they sought to carry, and which they actually
did carry, and in their retreat to Centrevllle,
where they have made a stand, and where Gen.
McDowell believes that they are able to main
tain themselves. "
As I telegraphed yon yesterday, the attack
was made in three columus.two of which, how
ever, weie mainly feints, intended to amuse
and occupy the enemy, whilo the substantial
work was doue by the third. It has been known
for a long time that the range of hills which border
the small, swampy stream, known as Bull Run
had bteu thoroughly and extensively fortified
by the rebles that batteries had been planted
at every available, point, usually concealed In
the woods and bushes which abound in that
viciutty, aud covering every way of approach
to the region beyond. These ore the advanced
defences of Manassas Junction, which is some
three miles fuither otf. Until these were carried,
no approach could be mode to that place, and
after they should be carried, others of a similar
character would have to be overcome at every
point where they could be erected.
The utmost that military skill and ingenuity
could accomplish lor the defence of this point
was done. General McDowell was unwilling
to make an attack directly in face of these bat
teries, us they would be of doubtful issue, and
must Inevitably tesult in a very serious loss of
lite- Alter au attack had been resolved upon,
therefore, he endeavored to find Borne way of
turning the jjusitiou. Bis first intention was
to do this on the southern side, to throw a strong
column Into the place from that direction,
while a feigned attack should be made in front.
Ou Thursday, when the troops were advanced
to Ceutreville, It was found that the roads on
the south side of these positions were almo.i
impracticable, thai they were narrow, crooked,
and stony, and that it would be almost impos
sible to bring up enough artillery to be effective
ja the time requir.d. This original plan was,
therefore, abandoutd and Friday was de
voted to au examination by the topographical
engineers of the northern side of the position.
M"jur Barnard and Captain Whipple recon
noitred the place lor miles around, and reported
that lLo position could be entered by a path
coining Irom the north, though it was some
what long and circuitous. This was selected,
the retire, as the mode and point of attack.
On Saturday the troops were all brought
closuly up to Centrevillv, and all needful prepa
rations were made for the attack, whiti was
intended (or the next day. Yesterday morn
ing, tlereture, the army marched bv two roads,
Cul. Richardson, with his command, taking the
Southern, which leads to Bull Run. and Gen.
Tjlcr tho Southern, running parallel to it at a
dijtancc of about a mile and a half. The move
ment commenced at about 3 o'clock. I got up
a little before four, and found the long line of
troops exteudtd tar out on either road. I took
the road by which Col. Hunter, with his com
mand, and Gen. McDowell and staff, had gone,
and pushed on directly for the tront. After
going out about two miles, Colonel Hunter
turned to the right, marching obliquely to
wards the Run, which he was to cross some
four miles higher up, and then come down upon
the intrenched positions cf the enemy on the
other side. Col. Mitel was left at Centrevllle
nucLon the road with reserves, which he was to
bring up wh'euever they might be needed. Gen.
Tjler went directly forward to engage the enemy
in front, and send reinforcements to Col. Hun
ter whenever it should be seen that be was en
gaged. 1 went out, as I have already stated, upon
the Northern road. It is billy, like all the sur
face of tbh section. After going ont about
three miles, you come to a point down which
the road, leading through the forest, descends :
then it proceeds, by a succession of rising ana
falling knolls, for a quarter of a mile, when it
crosses a stone bridge, and then ascends by a
steady slope to the heights beyond. At the
top ot that slope the wbels had planted heavy
batteries, anu me woods oeiow were unec wun
their Hoops, and with concealed cannon. We
proceeded down the road to the first of the
small knalU mentioned, when the whole col
umn halted. The 30 pounder Parrott gun,
which has a longer range than any other in the
army, was plauled directly in the read. Capt.
A res' battery wus Btatioucd in the woods a
little to the right. The first Ohio and second
New York regiments wero thrown into the
woods in advance on the left. The sixty-ninth
New York, the first, second, and third Connec
ticut regiments were ranzed behind them, and
the necoud Wisconsin was thrown into the woods
ou the right. At about half-past six o'clock
the 30-puunder threw two shells directly Into
the battery at the summit of the slope, on the
opcisita height, one of which, as 1 learned
a'tterwBtds, struck and exploded directly in the
midst of the battery, and occasioned the ntmest
havc and confusion.
After about half an hour, Captain Ayres threw
ten or filteeu shot and shell from his battery into
the same place. But both failed to elicit any
reply. Men could bo seen moving about the
opposite slope, but the batteries were silent. An
hour or so nlte.-wards we heard three or four
heavy guns Irom Colonel r.icuardson a column
at Hull Run, and these wero continued at in
tervals fur two or thtce hours, hot they were not
answered even by a single gun. It was very
clear tint the enemy inteuded to take his cwu
time for paying his respects to us, and that ha
meant, moreover, to do it in his own way.
Meantime we could hear in the distance the
Bound of Colonel Hunter's axemen, clearing his
way, and awaited with soma impatienre the
6wd of hi cannon on the opposite heights-
' Tim woro-along with occaiicnnl ohotq fretr. onr
) guns, as well as those of Colonel Riohnrdsou's
column, DM witnout, in n single lnstnncejje-
csivme anv rpnlr.
At a-littfe beforo ekvon o'clock, tho Aral Ohio
and s"cond Now York, which werfiying1 ill the
wood on tho left, wero ordered to advance. They
did so passing ont of the read and climbing
a fence into a wood opposite, which they hail
barely approachpd, however, when they were
met by a tremendous dischasga of a four-gun
battery, planted at the left in the woods, mainly
for the purpose of sweeping tho road perpendic
ularly and the.open jiehi on its right, by which
alone troops could pass forward to theoppoait
bank -They were Uggad-for-momeut.'and
received orders to retire. Captain Ayres bat
tery (formerly Sherman's) was advanced a little,
so as to command this battery, and by twenty
minutes of vigorous play upon it, silenced it
At halt past eleven we heard Hunter's guns
on the opposite height, over a mile to the right.
He was answered by batteries there, and then
followed the aharp,rattling volleys of mnsketry
as their infantry became engaged. The-firing
was now'Tncessan Hunter" nad"cSh,leripon'
them suddenly, ahd formed his line of battle in
an open field, at theHght of the road. The
enemy draw tip to Oppose him,' but he speedily
drove them, to retreat and followed them tip
with the greatest vigor and rapidity. Meantime,
for some three hours pfevlom, ws had seen long
lines of dense dnst rising from the roada lead
ing from Manassas, and, with the glass, we could
very clearly perceive that they were raised by
the constant and steady Mjeam of Jrelnforco-
ments which continued to pour in nearly the
whole a -y. The sixty-ninth, seventy ninth, sec
ond and eighth New-York the first, second,
and third Connecticut, and the second Wiscon
sin, were brought forward in advance, of the
wood and'marched across the field to the right,
to go to Colonel Hunter's support. They crossed
the Intervening stream and draw up in a small,
open field, separated from Colonel Hnnter's
Column by a dense wood, which was filled with
batteries and Infantry.
Our guns continued to play open the wr rds
which thus concealed tho enemy, and aided
materially in, clearing them for the advance.
Going down to the extreme front of the col
umn, l coma watcn me progress oi vjoionei
Hnnterj marked by the constant roar nf artil
lery and the roll of musketry, as he pushed the
rebels back from point to point. At 1 o'clock,
he had driven them ont of the woods, and
across the road which was the prolongation nf
that on which we stood, Merc, by the stae ot
their batteries, the rebels made a stand, Mnej
planted their flag directly in the road, ana
twice charged across it upon onr men, but with'
ont moving them an inch. They were met by
a destructive fire, and were compelled to tall
still further back. Gradually the point of fire
passed farther away, until the dense clouds of
smoke wnicn mamea ine progress oi me com
bat were at least half a milo to the left of what
had been the central position cf the rebels.
It was now 2i o'clock. I was at tho advanced
noint of the front of our column, some hundred
rods bevond the woods, in which the few troops
then there were drawn up, when I decided to
drive hack to the town for the oumose of send
ing you my dispatch. As I passed up the road,
the balls and shell from the enemy began to
fall with more than usual rapidity. I did not
see the point from which they came ; bat meet
ing Captain Ayres, he snid he was about to
bring up his battery, supported by the Ohio
brigade, under General Schenc!:, to repel a ru
mored attempt of cavalry to outflank this col
umn. As 1 went forward, he passed down.
General Schenck's brigade was at once drawn
up across the road, and Captain Ayres's guns
were planted on a knoll at the left, when a pow
erful body of rebels, with a heavy battery, came
down from the direction of Bull Run, and en
gaged this force with tremendous effect. I went
to Centrcville, sent off my dispatch, and started
with all speed to return, intending to go with
our troops npon what had been tho hotly-con
tested held, never doubling lor a moment mat
it wonld remain in their hands. I bad gone
bnt a quarter of a mile when we met a great
cnmDer oi iuuiTen, buu vhi vuihukv suyu u'c

the officer in charge of which told me it was
useless to go in that direction, as our troops
Not crediting the 3tory, which was utterly
inconsistent with what I had seen but a little
while before, I continued to push on. I soon
met Quartermaster Stetson, of the Tire
Zonavej, who told me, bursting into tears, that
his regiment had been utterly cut to pieces,
tha' the Colonel and Lieutenant Colonel were
both killed, and that our troops had actually
been repulsed. I still tried to proceed, but
the advancing columns rendered it Impossible,
and I turned about. Leaving my carriage. I
went to a high pjint of ground, and saw, by
the dense cloud of dust which rose over each
of the three roads, by which the three columns
of the army had advanced, that they were oil
en the retreat. Sharp discharges of cannon in
their rear indi':ating that They -vere'being pur-
sued. I waited ha?f an hoar or so, to otserve
the troops and batteries as they arrived, and
men smriuu jor tl uauiugiou, iu aenu uij uta-
patch and write this letter. As I came past
the hill on which the secessionists had their
intrenchments, les3 than a week ago, I saw oar
forces taking up positions for a deteuce,if they
hnuld be assailed.
Snch is n very rapid and general history of

I hear nothing, on every side, but the warm
est and heartiest commendation of our troops.
Thoy fought like veterans. The rebels did not,
in n. inol instance, stand before them in a
charge, ond wero shaken by every volley of
their musketry. I do not mean to praise any
ono at the expense nf another. The sixty
ninth fnuirht wkhsnlcndid and tenacious cour
age.- They charged batteries two or three
times, and would have taken and held them
but for the reinforcements which were con
stantly and steadily poured in. Indeed, u taw
to thie fact alont that the comparative success
of the reoeis 13 oue. we nad not over twemj
six thousand men in action, the rest being held
behind 03 reserves, at Centreville, while the
enemy must have numbered at least sixty
The Fire Zouaves, before they had fairly got
into action, were terribly cat np by a battery
and by musketrv. which ooened on their flank.
They lost a great many of their ofEeers aud
Colonel Hunter, who led tho main column
of attack, received a severe wound in his throat.
He was brought to this city; bnt I understand
that he cannot recover, if indeed he is not
already dead. I have heard the nnmas of many
others reported killed or wcuuded, but deem it
best not to mention them now, m the rumors
may prove to bn unfounded.
About a mile this side of Centreri'le, astRm
pede took place amoDg the teamsters aud
others, which threw everything into the utmost
confusion, and inflicted eome very- aeriona in
juries. Mr. Eaton, cf Michigan, in trying to
arrest the flipht of some of Oipaa men. Wan shot
by one of them, the ball taking effect in his I
hand, yulte a number ot senators and mem
bers of the House were present at the battle.
I ahall be able to appertain to-morrow the
canse of the retreat of Col. Hunter's column
after the splendid success it achieved. I would
gtadly, though in tho face of evidence nnable,
believe what is rumored here, that this column
did indeed hold Its groun.i, and that the retreat
was confined to the other columns. I fear this
will not prove to he the fact. H. J. R.
