to uorder (thu. .lolithstoni to his assis

the ronls ire vented this. It was
then delci'deld to receive the attack of
the enemy behinl Bull Run. After
the engagement behi tul Bull liun.
After the engagonuent at Blackburn's
Ford, on tilhe 18th, Gein. Beauregard
was convinced ( len. Mcl)no vel's prin
cipal demonstration' woiuld be made
on our left wing, au\ then formed
thle plan of tehrowing forward a suffi
ciiutt force by ceonver ug roads to
attack the enemy's rese -es at Cen
treville, so soon ;s the in hody of
the latter becaune inextric ,1v engag
ed on the left. Late in tht day, fin
ding that Gen. Ewell, who ias pos
ted on the extreme rieht of -r line,
had not unoved forward in acco ance
with the progranune and the s cial
order which had been sent, to in,
Gen. B. dispateied.aacourier to Gen.
Ewell to enquire the reason why the
latter had failed to advance, and
received any such order. The
enemy's attack having then be
come to, strong, on the left, to war
rant carrying out the originalplan, as
it would take three hours for Gen.
Ewoel's brigade to reach Centreville,
it became necessary to alter the plan,
change front on the left, and bring
up our reserves to that part of the
hield. This movement was superin
tended in person by Gen. Johnston,
Gen. Beauregard remaining to direct
the movement in front.
At the time when General Kirby
Smith and General Early came up
with their divisions and appeared on
the right of the enemy, my forces on
the left occupied the cord of the are
of a circle, of which the are itself
was occupied by the enemy-the ex
tremes of their lines flanking ours.
The appearance of Smith's and Ear
ly's brigades, and their charge on
the enemy's right, broke the line of
the latter and threw them into con
fusion, when shortly afterwards the
rout became complete.;
Gereral Beauregard highly com
pliments General-then Colonel
Evans (commanding a brigade)-and
now the hero of Leesburg-for the
extraordinary aptitude and great gal
lantry he displayed in his movements
from Stone Bridge to Sudley's Ford,
after receiving the enemy's first on
set at Stone Bridge. General Evans
had only about on'e thousand Iwen,
but divining that the enmlny's n'ive
tnent was a coricentric one, :nd that
columns had gonet through te- weoods
to the left, and woultd attelpt to cross
at Sudley's with 600 men, he tiliing
off towards the ford at Sdclty's with
600 men, he kept ths eneumy at tay
there for nearly an hour, although itt

puted r.especting this battle. Ilie c

General Johinsto in ifully according
