The Great Battle.
The Ilichmond papers of the 24th,
contains the following account of the
great battle fought on Sunday last:
We are able to give the reader an
authentic statement of this battle.
General Beauregard disposed his
army along the banks of Bull Ru~
from Union Mills Ford to the Ston
Bridge Ford, the stream being be
tween the two armies, and our Brig
ades so arranged as to guard the va
rious fords between the two points
above named.
The enemy advanced withingrang,
at 8 o'clock, P. M., opened a heavy
fire on Gen. Bonham's command al
Mitchell's Ford, and kept it up some
time to deceive our troops as to the
real point of attack. It was soon dis
covered to be a feint, and the left
wing of our line found to be very
heavily pressed. The enemy con
centrated on that point, by rapid
marches an overwhelming mass ol
troops of all arms, and at 10 o'clock
the battle raged to its height. Gen
erals Beauregard and Johnson ar
rived on the scene nearly at the same
time, and both exhibited great per
sonal prowess and courage in the en
gagemrnAt. Gen. Beauregard rode up
and down the line till his horse was
killed; Gen. Johnson seized a stan
dard and rallied a wavering regiment.
'T'roops were rapidly moving fromnthe
right and center to the relief of the
left,' and by 3 o'clock 15,000 of our
men were there in the furious action
against :35,000 of the enemy. At
that hour Gen. Kirby Smith's Brig
ade arrived on the railroad from Win
chester to Manassas Junction, at a
point within two miles of Stone
Bridge. Seeing the violence of" the
contest there, this general stopped
the ears, and dismounting his mien,
marched straight on the enemy, with
out orders, and without going; to the
Junction, thereby saving a tive mile
nmarch. Gen. Bea]:uregard did not at
first recognize this brigade, and he
lieved it a flank movement of the en
emy, till they came near enough for
the flag to be distinguished. On their
arrival in line, a general charge was
mad,-, and the enejmv broke and fled
precijpitately.
When the armies reached ('C'ntreville
where' McDowell had 15I.000 fresh
men and heavy guns in position. he
made a desperate rally. But another
charge of the ('onfederates broke the
new lines, and his disaster became
complete.
About half the memnhers of the
Federa:l (Congress were distant spec
tators t!' the .great battle. At C(ln
terville was found a table bounteous

and twenty baskets ut' ehamupagne,

It is currently reported, and even
vonched fur by saw1 of thiu passen
gors, that Gei. Scott was near the
sceno of action in his carrniage.
When the retreat of his army took
place, Scott left the vehicle and es
caped in one direction, while the
carriage drove oft' in another, Our
men of course pursued the carriage
and captured it, and in it found the
sword and epulets of the old Gene
