A despatch veeeived late last evening ears thai the hauls was renewed yesterday morning, and had con* tinusd during the day; the thunder of artillery <W.d bo distinctly heard in Washingtoa, hut tho roe u ' had not .boon learned. From those despatches wo ka*o reliable new or 'ho operations of Wednesday, Thursday, Friday aud t-utur daylaet, the27tb 28th, 29th and 30th Inst. Wee,,>er to bars toughl thros buttlss, tho first on tho 37th, oo ??? a meceMfu' affair, in wbiuh the enemy wero roui od, with ths loss sf thros hundred killed and wounded, and their camp, baggage and many stand of arms. The oeoond occurred on the 28th. and only oeosod on aeoonnt of darknsw. This light ts reported aa MTSre, but nsuccessful one for us, for the enemy being repulsed at all points, wo virtually held possession of the field and were victorious. Both of those Bin It Into Insignificance, however, in com parison with the battle of the 2?tl>, which lasted from daylight until dark, and against the combined force* of the enemy. It appears to have beun, from the official despatch, by far the most sanguinary of the war, and closes with n victory on our side, wo holding lbs hauls laid. That the low on our side tssver estimated we hope, but fear the numbers cannot bo loss when we consular the numbers engaged and the ferocity with winch b th sldw fought. Our army knew they were iu the position to wipe out, and forever, the disgrace of the first- Bull ran,and an ths same ground; tboy have done so, and most nobly. Opposed to thorn were the Bower of the rebel army, commanded by the pet generals ef Jeff. Davis; but theyhnvs been whipped, h-idly whipped, by ear invincible Army of Virginia, and the demoralization that must attend the rebels will, we are confident, now render the road to Richmond comparatively easy. General Pope has accomplished the achievement of th ? war, and earned for himself the proud title of victor of the second battle of Bull ran, whereby the disgrace attending ths Unloa forces In the first battle has bjeo forever blotted out. It has boon ths crowning act to his sue ceases sines ths war began, and sumps h.ia aa one ef the first geasrsls of the age, not only by fighting the battle and gaining the victory, but by out-manauvrlng .he rebels at all point#, commanded as they wers by InelJackson, Lnngstrwt and other generals, who were acknowledged second to sone In mlliury reputat.on. Tho movements of tho coming week will be watched with Intense anxiety; en them, sad their soccers or defeat, depend in a great measure the result of tbie war. Me have confidence, great confidence la our military leaders' aad wa look for operation shortly by oar army that will astonish the world and prove the Immease superiority ef tk9 fhrtte ft the Unfca.
