From the Charleston Mercury. Great Battle in Virginia. MAXASSis JrNCT1O, Saturday Night July 20. -During the greater part of yesterday afternoon the enemy was burying bury the dead near Bull's Run. We have, however, information that the Northern forces are concentrating against us in immense numbers. They are throwing up earth works and planting batteries with great energy, as if to renew the attack. Our troops await the onset with the utmost confidence. Gen. Patterson, with his entire force, has aban doned Martinsburg, and is now hastening to form a junction with McDowell. Troops are being thrown across the river in heavy bodies from Washington, and everything indicates that our positions will be attacked speedily by an over whelming force. (Ion. Beauregard yesterday afternoon issued an order that all civilian.:, women and children, should leave Manassas Junction forthwith. He evident ly anticipates a great battle here to-morrow. Tr.Y 20, 6 p. m.-On Wednesday the South Carolina Regiments were ordered back from Fair fax Court House to Bull's Run. They were posted at Mitchell's Ford. The ene my avoided this point, and made the attempt to crass at McLane's Ford. Only three Virginia Regiments and a detach ment of the Washington Artillery of New Orleans were seriously engaged. There were no casualties of any sort among the South Carolina troops. THE BATTLE. MARASSAS JrNCTIoN, Sunday Night, July 21, 7 o'clock.-A great battle has been fought to-day at the Stone Bridge, on Bull Run, near this place. The Southern troops are again victorious. The slaughter on both sides was terrific. Gen. Johnston, who had been summoned from Winchester to come with all haste to the assista::ce of Gen. Beauregard, arrived with his entire force in time to take part in the battle. Gen. Beauregard h: al his horie shot under him w'iile leading Ianptoan's Legion into pwitiu. Gen. Johnson, 'during the thickest of tihe fight. eized the colors of a wavering regiment and ral lied them, in persou, to the charge. It is impossible at this moment to estimate the number of the dead an' wounded. It is reported that the commander .if the United States forces, U n. McDowell, is mortally wounded. On our side, Col. Francis S. Bartow, of Georgia, who was acting Brigadier General, was tuor:ally wounded, and is since reported dead. The battle began at 8 A. M., and lasted until 6 P. M. The enemy is now in full retreat, anti hotly pur sued by our cavalry. SECOND DImSPATCII. MrsissAs Jt-seros, July 21, 111 o'clock P. M. Amid the bustle andl excitement here it is exceed. inly diflicult to get the correct particulars of the great battle of to-day. I have. however, obtainedt a few additional facts, uhich will be interesting to your readers. The enemy opened their batteries of heavy ar tillery and sinall fell pieces, at McLean's Ford, 1 about S o'clock in the morning. The eugngeaaent ubuve the Stone Bridge. on Ittll's Ruu, began about 10 c'el->ck. The enemy's force, as near as 1 can be aseertaiud, was at least 40,000. Our own t fo.rce was hut :0,000. GeneralN. G. Evans, of .uth Carolina, led the Brigade first into action. Among the Southern forces prominently engaged were Culonei Sloau' Iourth Regiment, Colonel Kershaw's Second Reg iment, and Colonel Wadu llampton's Legion, ali of South Carolina Valauutuers.

The enemy was routed, and fled precipitately, abandoning a very large amount of arms, munitions, knapsacks and baggage. The ground was strewn for miles with those killed; and the farm houses, and the ground around, were filled with his wounded. The pursuit was continued along several routes towards Leeshurg and Centreville, until darkness covered the fugitives. We have captured several field batteries and a regimental stand of colors. arms, and one United States flag. Many prisoners have been taken.

The return home of this gallant body of soldiers to their homes, after six months ac tive and laborious service during the term of their enlistment, was fully and properly ex pected. None could fail to know that they were first to respond to the call for an ade quate force to serve for a prescribed time in protecting the harbor of Charleston. In this service they were engaged for more than four months.! The fall of Fort Sumter in April left the regiment free to continue a useless service on Morris Island, or to return home, or to - serve out the remainder of the six months' term in Virginia, the next assailahie State. A day's notice (all that was given, such was the pressing necessity for the relief of Virginia,) was suflicient for a large portion of this regiment. They hurried forward to Virginia. Arrived there, they sought and obtained the advanced position, and occupied it to the last. day of the term of their enlist ment. They have returned reluctantly, but from a compelling necessity. That which is indispensable to themselves and moro to their families, demanded to he provided fur. Hav ing performed their entire duty faithfully, bravely and honorably, they are entitled to the thanks of the country and the commen dation of the genuine men of the State which they nobly represented. We are happy to learn that most of the companies composing this favorite regiment will make their arrangements to return to Vir ginia in ten days or a fortnight. We should feel a greater sense of security if . they could always be present when a conflict is coming oft. SIt is with pain we hear that on the return of this regiment homeward, through the State of Virginia, sleek and well clad citizens of the Old Dominion, accompanied by their wives (probably to secure their impunity,) made olfensive remarks and uttered insulting cries to show their disapprobation thereat. Whatever excuse niay be oifered, because of their ignorance of the circumistances which induced the temporary retarn of the conpa uies. it is scarcely bearable, under any cir cumstances, that the people whon our brave men rushed forward unhesitatingly to relieve, should venture even to bestow thotghtless re pronch. But when we call to mind who that people was, and how great are their own de imniuences-how few, compared with their population. are even at this time in the field in the service of their State-how strangely "surprised" they have so often been wh-en they met the enemy-how great are .ae heap ed up wrongs they' have endured, and which they have not adequately turned out to avenge -we are disposed to aset ibe their assumcd sneers to iuhierent lack ' inauhood in the individuals, and to rega. ie exhibition as the wailings of men who tear that every ab sentee makes an opening for one of their nuniber. In connection with the return of this regi meat, we notice with pleasure the reappear iance anig us of the Richardson Guards, Captain Chas. II. Axsoun. They were attach ed zy Gen. Iieauregard to Col. Gregg's Reg ituent on Morris Iaand, and, as Comnpany M. under Captain Richardson, served until the Regiment left for Virginia.,.
