1D. 1,: , of S.:uth Carolia. The position was
ab"ut the centre of the entire army; a:d cer

that eouid have been selected for the pt pose.

prodect this inipres-iein. It is my owl sin'
mise, he'wever, based upon certain facts which
I c&taiot relate, that it. was not the intention
of (fel. Lee or Longstreet to give the enetny
battle. on. that day, but ,imply to nacke a feint
a' tack, and while thus et'ngaged to allow Gen.
Jack-on to slip out, continue his onward

the r..ult of a battle would have been the
ep'ure and dt'moralization of the entire Fed

wete disappoineted. After waiting until three
o'<lack,- P. M., the enemy himself took the
initiative. and marched boldly to tbe attack,
:inha their blow, as on the previous day, at
thle line of Jackson. It happened to be my
fortune to be in the heights occupied by Lee's
battalion of artillery, and to wttuess the open
iug of the ball.
All the morning we had been watching a
tuvttent of the enemy to the left, the low
black masses immediately in front of us, and
the clouls of dust from columns moving in
the re::r. itd.eatiti their purpose at a glance.

Suddenly there beoed forth from every
brazen throat in our .battery a volley that
seetmed to sihake the very earth. For a tmo

nature to statid utdilinebinegly before that hur
riane of lire. As the light progressed Lee
moved his batteries to the left, until reaching
a position only four hundred yards distant
fruitm the cnemy's lines,- he opened again. The
spectacle was now tmagti liicent. As shell af
ter shell burst ini the wavering ranks, and
round sholt ploughed broad gaps amnotig them,
you could distinctly see through the rifts of
.muoke the Federal soldiers falling and dlying
en-every side. With the explosion of every
bomb, it seemed as it scores dropped dead or
writhed in- agony upon the field. Somte were
crawling ott their hands and knees, some were
pled tup tagether, and someI were lyiing scat

With the dispersion of the enemy's reserve,

now charged upon the scauttered crowd ; but
you could noticee- thatL they tbiremselves had

ipn field, ye travel on towards the front.
Front an ,leivatiun we obtain a view of a
contsiderable portion of the field. Hood and
Kenper are now hard at it, anid as they press
forward, never yielding an inch, sometimes
at. a double quick, ; ou hear those unmistaka
Ile yells, which tell of a Sout'Lern charge or
a Southern success. Sudde-nly we stulble
..ver the firt reminder of the ripening -kir
muirh. 1.. in the bedy of a Texan, bleeding
frvom a glhast. y wound in the breast. The
even of the puor felkow are alruady sot ina I
death-it is useles to waste. sympathy there.
You now see scores of dead and wounded- I
all Confelcrates. for the tire of the enetnay's
.saarphoo.tera has been fatal.
Reaching the vicinity of the Chinn house,
the eye at once embraces the entire vista of
b:at tt-at least that portion of it which is
goint on in front of' Longstreet. Some of
our mel are i~ the wools in the rear, and;
s:.me ini thes open field which stretch"s its
nuteulating surface far away towards Bull
Run. The old hattle ground is plainly dis- I
cernaele less than two miles distant, and to
the right and left as well as in front, the
country is conparative'ly unobstructed -by
heavy woods. Just before you, only !re'e or
four hundred yards away, are the infantry of'
the enemy, and at various points in the rear
are their reserve. and batteries. Hetween the
aruties, the ground is already covered with
the dead and wounded, for a distance length
wise of nearly a mile.
Our own a'rtillery are likewise upon con.
manding positions and you hear the heavy
rush of shot, the terrible dumps into the
ground, and the crash of trees throngh which
they tear with resistless force, on every side.
The Federals. according to their owl. state
ment, are under command of Gen McDowell
on the left, Siegel in the centre, and Kearney
on the right. Their troops are the best dis
ciplined in the Yankee army, and for a little
while most obstinately do they contest every
inch of' ground over which we advance. Noth
in., however, can withstand the impetuosity
of our boys. .very tine of the enemy has
been broken and dispersed, but rallies again
upon some other position behind. Hood has
alrealy advanced his d;vi-ion nearly half a
mile at a double quick, the Texans, Georgians
ad I ampton Legion loading and tiring as
they run, yelling all the while like mradm':en.
They have captured one or two batteries ard
various stands of c'lera, and are still pushi:g
the enemy before them. Evans, at the head
of his brigade, is following on the right, as
their -upport, and pouring in his effective
vlies. Jenkins has come in on the right of
the Chinn iou-e. and, like an avalanche,
sweeps down upon the legions before him
with resistless force. Still further to the
t i:ht is Loangstreet's old brigade, en osed of
Virginians-veterans of every battie .ld-all
of whom are fighting like furies. The First
Virginia, which opened the hall at Bull Run
on the 17th of July, 1861, with over six hun
dred nen, new reduced to less than eighty
members, is winning new laurels; but out of
the litth- handful more than a third have al
ready bit the dust. Toombs and Anderson,
with the Georgians, together with Kemper
and Jenkins, are sweeping around on the
right, flanking tky Federals. and driving them
towards their centre and rear. Eschelman,
with his company of the Washington Artil
lervy ; Major Garnett, with his battalion of
Virginia batteries, and others of our big guns,
are likewise working around upon the ene
may's t-I, and pourng an enfilading tire into
both their mufianatry and artillery.
It was a task of almost superhuman labor
to drive the enemy frot these strong points
defended as they were by the best artillery
and int'antry in the Federal army, but in less
than four hours from the commencemtent of
the battle our indomitable energy had ac
cmuplished everything. The arrival of R.
H. Anderson with is reserves soon after the
engagement wan fairly opened, proved a time.
which nte bra ught his troaops into position
elhowed the cool and skillful General. Our'
Gewrals, Leue, Lohgss~rees' -Jackson, Hlood,
Kemitper, Evanas, Jones, Jenkins, and others,
tall shared the dangers to wvhich they exposed
their men. II.,w well th ir Colonels and the

wich. disabled them f'romi further participa
tion ini the fight. I have, however, forwarded
.seve'td lists ot' casualties, whicht renders it
unece'ssary for mec to particularize thema fur
ter at this time.
The battle ragted in the manner described
until after dark.Candl when it was imzposible to
tse firearms, tlhe heavenis were lit up~ by the
still continued flashes of the artill-ry, anel
the meteor flighat of shells scattering tl'eir
irn spray. By this time the enemy hail
been f'orced across Bull Run, and their dead
covered every niere from the sta'rting point of
the light to t'he Stone Bridge.

Lujsntac;, Sept. 4.-Arrived here to-day.
Leesburg is passing through an era in its ex
istence which, predictedionea' year ate, would
have been thought the idle dream of a ihap
sodist. its peoile are itnessing a gnlious
reality. After enduring for months the thral
d'om of a ha:ed foe, the yoke has baen re
tnoved, and they are tv-.ay once unre in the
-ljoyttentof their rights, protected by the
arms and brave bearts of Confediarcte
troops. Three days aign the staid old burg
waa aiwakened from its letharey by dhe sud
den a.ppesaaiee of a body of our cavalry, un
der Col. Munford. Federal troops and horse
nen were ini the town. feeding upon the forced
libspitality of the citizens, and enj.,yiog a
fancied s.'eurity. Their first intimation of
our presence was our appearance. Instantly
the whole place was in an uproar.
The "home guards," consisting of native
irginias-s and renegade Marylanders, rallied
in thi: it reets and on the outskirts, and, aided
by the Yankee cavalry, attempted to make a
stand. Manford, witeu' ado, dashed at once
into their ranks, shot and sabred those who
did not escape, and the ia-mainder took to
tlight. nerss tie Potomac.
The dlelight of the people at the arrival of
t his nne.xt'e tel succor knew no bounds. They
roan into the -treetis, took the cavalry by the
hand, kiss. ai ri e horses, threw open their
hrouses. fed awd clothed the men, and vented
rnthuaiasm in a thousand ways.
Since then until the present hour the town
has been in the same wild whirl. The ad
vance guard of Jackson entered yesterday,
and to-day the main body of his army have
been marehing through. The street.s are
thronged with ladies. The doors wave and
curb-stones are like living bouquets of beau
ty. Everything that wears crinoline or a
pretty ftee is out, and such shouts and wav
ing of handkerchiefs and hurrabs by the
overjoyed gender, never emanated from liu
man lips. Every residence is literally an
"open house," where is obeyed the scriptural
injection, " Come ye who are weary and
heavy laden, and I will give you rest." Ta
bles are spread, soldiers are called in, the
ladies stand aroinid and bring to bear upon
the keen appetites whole batteries of bread,
batter, honey, milk and meats. No mar
who enters there goet; away hungry or with
out ati eruption of " God speeds" and "lea:.
en bless you's" that ought to supply him fr
a life time.
" Wha t regiment is that?" "Sixth Geor
gi, Ewell's division." " Hurrah for you !
Kill all the Yankees I" screamed a bevy of
girls. " Hurrah for the gals ! Coming back
to marry the whole town." shout the tnnfed
erates. ~ "Got any tobadeo?" another. "Got
any shoes? Give us a slice of bacon and
bread. Hoop. hi, hi !' and then the whole
crowd break out into a series of yells and
screeches that only require the addition of an
Indian war dance to complete the scene. I
never heard such tumult or saw such enthu
siasn in my life.
It is the only time when, without poetic
license, one might say truly that the people
were perfectly wild. Flags .waving, drums
beating, dust flying, canons rumbling, men
marching, trains tugging behind-these are
the skeleton frame work of a picture which I
leave the reade- to fill up for himself. Long.
street is at Drainsville, and passes here to
morrow. Maryland is in sight, and in a few
hours its soil will be consecrated by our foot
steps, if not our blood.

Since that time other portions of our army
have crossed, and on Sunday last, Gen. Lee
had renfoved his headquarters from Leesburg
to Frederick City. Th'e main body of the
ary having pushed op, this step seemed in
evitably necessary to btotd an attack upon
Leesburg in front or on the flank, and on the
rear. Add to this the fact that it was ex
tremely difficult as well as dangerous, to keep
up supplies fromi any avrilable point south
of Leeburg and the mcvemnent appears to
have been one of the greatest importance.
