Not Intending to be etlaled an to tlmi, we
resolred not to g In the Government excarf Ion

charges doable fare, or twice aa mnc'i as for

wharf Innocent of omnlbiue.1 or carrUgei,
and the Orange and Alexandria railroad depot
a long distance off, especially for those whose
power of loci motion are not free and eaiy,
However, wllb a few not very flittering com
ment, upon the enterprise of Virginian", we
mndo our way over rough etrccte nnd pave
ments to Ihe depot, from which a train was ex
pected to start for Hanas at ten o'clock, but
nearly three tedious hours paswd away before
tho shrill blast of tho whistle announced the
readiness of the sleatn horse to proc:ed, when,
sealed upon the floor of an old baggage or,
our party rlowly made lis way over the Iron
road, and, alter n passage of about three hour,
arrived at the rebel stronghold.
CONDITION' OF Till R01D.
In pursuance of their mission of destruction.
the rebels had blown up the principal water
tanks along the road, so thai the engineer was
obliged to " water Lis bono " from tho running
broolis, which was n long and te lous opera
tion, ts the water was carried in single buckets
up the back o' the stream to the engine. Tho
track aa far as Minass.u, with n few exceptlocs,
appears to be in good order, but at the Junction
a portion of It had been destroyed by the ac
tion of lire, and soma miles of the road between
tho 'Junction and Warrcoton bavo been tora up,
lho ties burnt, tho rails bent, nnd the bridges
destroyed, but Yankee activity nnd enterprise
wll "oon repair all damages, an 1 re op"n the
entire ro.id to Ulctnnr.il.
TIIK llrDLI. LOO CABIN' I.M.lMrUtrN'T.1
lathe vicinity of Bull Run, wc bad the first
sight of lho winter quarter ol tho grand army,
and I hey were fir superior to those of our owu
soldiers. I.ich regiment had erected a hand
some little village of log bate; 'bey were about
eight fcelhlgh, fourteen feet long, and ten feet
wide. They were made of pine and oak logs,
notched at the end, by which they were firmly
nulted; the spaces between Ihe logs being tilled
by wood and mud, so thoroughly "chlukedln
as not to admit a Haw of the winter's wind, or
a drop of rain; thick clapboards, nr "shakes,"
covered the roof, which, also, wai wind end
watertight; the chimney, giving a wide Ore
place, was built at the end, of stick and mud;
a rough board door, hung npon wocden binges,
completed the exterior ot the cabin. They were
built upon parallel tin., with wido avenues
between them, and being uniform in slzo aad
style, tho whole encampment presented a pio
turesque and handVome appearanco.
The Interior was fitted up so at to accommo
date from two to six persons; there were no
camp-bedsteads, but wooden platforms, upon
which two soldiers could eleep; we suppose
that a blanket thrown over the straw, which
covered the rough boards, formed the bed
upon wh'ch the chivalry reposed. Over each
bed there were arrangements lor suspending
their guns, und along tbe sides were shelves and
permanent boaid tables, rouxbly inadu benches,
and the usual camp-stools were found In every
cabin; a few had plank floors, but generally
Ihey were without any save tho hard packed
'saured soil." Kvery where In these encamp
ments, we saw abundant evidence that the
"boys" not only hod first rate quarters, but
that they had had a good time generally.
In many of our encampments, tin s .Idlers
Eavo their little streets, and In some way
eautlfy or adorn n small space In front ol
the door of their teat; In this they excel the
rebels, for all their streets were unpnved and
filthy, with no evidences ol cleanliness or taste,
but everywhere the opposite. The heads and
bores of cattle, dead dogs and other offensive
and disgusting exhibitions of tbe bod police
of the camp, were apparent In each encamp
ment. On the line of the railroad, bet wet n Dull
Run and the Junction, there are several of
these encampments, and a very flno one near
the depot. In two or three places there was
evidently a design to destroy these leg til
lages by Are; some of the huts were entirely con
sutned, other partlully destroyed, and in soins
cases the flamcsaDcearcd to havetnadethelr way
along tbe surface ot the logs, merely burniugj
toe Doric ana mere gradually expired.
In several places towards tho battle field new
houses were commeuccd, having Ihe appear
ance of permanent b irracks; these were Irame
buildings, some just commenced, others nearly
Untuned. This clrcumsUuce seems to establish
the fact that tbe departure of the rebel was
sudden and unanticipated.
Til.'. m'lEMkS Or NUNJ.S.SA3.
Certain fantaitlo forms of pine bushes along
the tides of the road, near Dull Run, nre pointed
out lo Ihe inquirer as timlsed battcric, but they
are quite email and frail, and would form no
defence, and would soon become uselets as a
cover for ordnance. As we approach tbo Junc
tion, vi e begin to have a view of tbo ' Immense
and powerful" forts, of which we have beard so
much. One of them, near tha depot, at a dis
tance, appears to be a very formidable affair,
but dwindles Into iiulgnlucance as it Is ap
pronched. It stands within a few feet cf the
road, and la merely a slight earth ork; the
embankment being about eight feet high, form
ing three ald.s of a square, surrounded by a
ditch about six foet wide. On tbe inside ol
the embankments are rows of casks tilled with
earth, closely packed. There are three embra
sures, but no evidence that guns were eter
mounted within them. Near this oil, on Ilia
other side of the mad. Is another, some fifteen
feet high, which Is supposed to have been
i reeled lur the protection of Infantry. It la In
form like tho other, and has a powder maga
zine built below the surlace. The walls uie
composed ol small osnvas sand beg confined
between a row of wooden posls on Ihe Inside,
and a slight covering of earth on the outside ;
a few raw hides ore stretched across the outer
ride. In tho Immediate vicinity ot the depot
ate eigne or ten oi tnese little eartnworiu, an
of them very slight, poorly built, nnd would oiler
llttlo or no resistance to shot or shells, n very
few of which would entire N demolish them. A
single shell thrown Into tho sand bag bittery,
would probably destroy tho whole of II. Kx
ponire lo Ihe elements has rolled the canvas
bags, winch can now bo torn with great ease.
Gen. lieauiegard has tbe reputation of being
a skilful engineer, but Ihe works of defence
about Manassas demonstrate that the engineer,
whoever he wu, was either Incompetent or that
he Intended them as iiimforts, lo be msgnlflep
by our 'llkknl corps of balloonist nnd spies,
andjlhus keep back Ihe Union forces.
1 TIIK MtMMttt or iin-n.
Id eximlnloK Ihe earth wet ks In the vicinity of
the Junction, we w re cempelled to abandon the
popular Idea thai the rebels were well tupMlea
with ordeanc". or that their batteries were
formidable. There were but few Indication of
mounted guns, nnd the people who live In tho
neighborhood nnert most positively and with
out doubt, truly, that In aU tbe forts at Manas
sos and Centrevllle there have not been, since
early In December, more than trenfy guns, nnd
not half that number at Manasas.
MTMBr.lt Of TROorS.
If Ihe number of log cabin encampments In
dicate Ihe numerical force of Ihe rebels at
itinasa. there must have bei.-rt, at one time,
at least fifteen thousand troops ; but the black
acd while citizens, who have been there during
tbe winter, all agree In the extraordinary state
ment that tbe rebel forrehss, since November,
been gradually disappearing, and that nt tbe
time when Manassas was evacu tied, there were
bnt.l.w regiment left, nnd that there had not
boen more than fire thousand soldiers there for
the last three month'. Well Informed military
offlcers, now upon the ground, confidentlr ex
press tho opinion that ten thousand Union
troops could, at any time during the last win
ter, nave captured the whole rebel army of the
Potomac, together with all their military stores;
and this opinion Is cculnly well founded, con
sidering the weakness of their earthworks, the
mill number of guns and the numerical insig
nificance of their troops.
TUK kOnSISTK.NCK Or TIIK AHMT.
Tbe popular idea has long'prevalled, that the
rebel ;iroops were so short of provisions that
they would soon be starved out; bnt a look at
Manassas explodes this Idea; there Is every
where abundant evidence that Ihe troops were
not only well supplied with Ihe necessaries of
Hie, but wun lis luxuries, in our two days'
wandering about Ihe country, we saw but four
cows, half a dozen pigs, and a few chickens
concealed in tbe cellar of a farm hoise, now
occupied by contrabands. Tbe rebels bad so
cured by pnrchsso, or otherwise, everything
eatable, within the range of their operations.
In almost every cabin were the rcinalna of an
ample slock of provisions nice pieces of fresh
beef suspended upon wooden hooks were om
mon; good bread lay scattered about tbe floor;
flour barrel, not vet emntv: while sardine boxes
and porter and wine botlks were in great
auumunce; a soiaier, in prospecting among tho
cabins, found a handsome wine cose, witii cut
gloss decanters, and one of them partly Oiled
with wine.
Those who first visited Manassas. alt(r the
evacuation, found large quantities of cast ell'
cioioinj. ana u is Known mat immense quanti
ties; of flour, pork, clothing, and blankets were
bnrned; a large oven was also destioyed.
Tbe precUe spots where these burnings took
place are stilt visible. Wbre the military unl
forms were burnt, curious visitors still scratch
about am3ng the charred remains, for Indians,
and carry them off a souvenirs. The most
superficial observer of matters and things at
Manassas, will soon become convinced that the
grand rebel army of tbe Potomac have spent
a pleasant winter, and tbe peoplo thero say,
tbat the " boys" lacked but one thing to make
them happy, and that was an opportunity to
fight, which desire appeared to be universal
among them.
TUK UOHI'ITiU AT XUN'iSSAS.
Tbe boipltal grounds were located In u grove
on the right cf the rood, a short distance below
Ihe Junction, towards Warrenton. Tbe trees
hod been cut away, and a small place cleared
up, near tha track, upon which the hospitals
were erectea. iney were iwo story tram-i
bulldlnirs, about twenty feet wide and Dftv
feet long, and It is said Ibey could accommo
date two thousand Invalids. One of the last
acts perpetrated by tho rebels al Manassas,
was the burning of these building; they were
entirely consumed, not a vestige lef., except
meneu gias, nan anu nioges una ouier piccoa
of Irou, all ot which are rapidly being distribu
ted over tho couctty us memorial of Manas,
sas. It I said that a dead body, partly con
sumed, wo found upon the site ot one ot these
hospitals, but whether it bad died ol disease, or
by lire, was not known.
TIIK HOSrlTXL (j!tA K Vattl).
In aa adjoining field, near a beautll.il plno
grove, we found wnat is supposed to nave
been the hospital burying place. The groves
wen nlaced at renul tr distance from each
other, lupataltel lines, und numbered one hun
dred ana ninety lour, a rmau uoara at ine
bead of each grave, announced in pencil marka
the name, company and regiment of the de
cased. Upon one of these "lomb-stones"
wero Ihe words "dead nero" and upon
another, "black .foci," but to whom tbe ' dead
negro" belonged, or whose "black stock" ''lay
slumbering in the grave," there was no record.
A number of graves unmarked, we discovered
in Ihe immediate vicinity, but there wero no
legends In relation to them, and no one seemed
to know why they had been made there. Wo
have beard much of the sickness of the rebel
army; but the graves at Manassas do not es
tablish the facl; doubtless, many who died
were sent home, but Ihe graveyard would
seem to demonstrate that th) army was either
small or healthy. We know there were but
few troops, and we could bear of no prevalent
disease, except pneumonia.

Having wundered over the ruins ol Ihe boa
pltals and its little city of the dead, until all
were tall-fled, our party took up its line of
match lor tue lato Headquarters oi uenerai
Beauregard. Our routo lay across the fields
in the direction of the battle ground. On tbe
way, we saw a number ol dead boisea; iu one
lot were nt least twenty; and wherever we
went towatds the bailie field, we siw Ihe
mains of horses. Tbe popular story Is, that
they died oi starvation; but this cannct be
true. Tbe rebel had forage nhen they left;
and in some oi me tarra ynrus in mo vicinity,
stocks of lodder still remained, which would
not have been the case if forage bad been scarce.
Uaving wandered out of our way, we bailed a
contraband, whom we discovered croslcg Ihe
fields, llo promptly came to us, and volun
leered lo take us lo tbe bouse wo nought,
which was that of bis master, Mr. Wm. J
Weir. He fold his master owned five plontA
tions, and more than one hundred slavis; but
nlien the arrav went away, Mr. Weir also left,
taking a few (laves with blm, but seme cl
them suddenly left him nnd U-turned home,
and are now within our linen, patiently waiting
for freedom, which they think this war will
give tbem. TbI slave was very cautious and
sbrend in his answers to our Interrogatories;
bo gave few direct replies until be was certain
tbat be conversed Willi friends, and then be
dismissed an reserve, and snoke with ire ut

to start fair, the Yankee army came down, and
then he thought ho wouldn't go. Ho said that
times were verv hard money scarce, and
nothing to eat, uud tbat some ol the abandoned
slave lamilles bad been taken to Alexandria,
by the Union men, to keep them from starving;
which we subsequently found to be true.
Wbllo he wo thus lamenting tbe hard time,

notes good perhaps tbey are, but judging by

It was near tlx o'clock when we reachad tbe

wa Kouail upon It.
A cot respondent of tbe Bt. Louis ll-pub'.kan,
writing Irom Island No. 10, on tbo 9tb, says:
Tbe floating battery, formerly tbe Pelican
dock, at New Orleans, drifted down to Madrid,
and was secured lire miles below there. When
first seen. It came sweeping down wllh Ihe cur
rent toward the upper battery, and tbe gtrrl
non supposing an attempt probable lo run Ihe
blockade, Immediately manned Ibelr guns.
Klght cannon could be counted upon It, all
bi.irlng directly at the fort, and when within
range the latter opened fire. Receiving no
rerponse, they perceived the battery bad been
deserted, and ceased. This occurred the eve
ning previous to the evacuation and surrender
ot the lebels.
Tuo transports, with great difficulty, after
several hours, got the battery lo shore. It was
full of water, (.the enemy having tried bard to
rink It,) and drugged the Immense anchor at
tached to It very easily. Tbe bull Is ISO feet
long and CO wide, built like that ut u 1 trge
steamer, decked very strongly, and the guns all
mounted along one side und lho ends. To
counterbalance this great weight was a quantity
of heavy bull&st on tbo outer side, nnd also the
ammunition, with baggage, ,ti, of lho crew.
There were several trunka filled with good
clothing und articles ol private comfort, some
revolvers, and one or two ril!-s, back., and
