BRAVERY OF OUR TROOPS f
ENEMY COPPLE TEL Y ROUTED.
Washington, July 21.
[Special to Herald.] — Official dis
patches say vve have taken three battur
' ies in the form of acrescent, numbering
.19 guns. ’Tis known that Manasses
Junction is supplied with water by ncan
.al from Bull’s Kun. This will now be
; cut off, leaving the rebels without water
j for their cavalry. That a most brilliant
I victory bag been achieved by our gallant
troops, there is no doubt. Hight praise
■ was bestowed on the fire Zouaves, nnd
G9th. It is reported the former met the
Louisiana Zouaves, routed them, and
captured their colors:—that the 69th
stripped to the skin, except their pants,
and pitched into the fight regardless and
‘ fat’guo nnd personal safety.
Gen. McDowell telegraphs the enemy
is completely routed from Bull’s Run, re
treating towards Monassos, leaving their
batteries in possession of the Union
forces.
Fighting commenced at 3 o'clock tl is
morning, and continued most despeiately
till after 2 this P. M- The rebels were
driven back in great disorder, having
their dead on toe field.
Tho loss of life on both sides was
frightful. Our troops behaved most
gallantly, and our guns were very effec-
I tive.
The whole force on both sides is sa'd
; to have been enga/ed: Gen. Johnson
liaviifg joining tho rebels as previous'y
stated; making pen. Beauregards force
about seventy thousand. It is said the
rebels will suffer greatly at Manasses for
lack of water
The Herald's correspondent says;
When I left the field of battle, I falV
the rebels flying in vast numbers. The
‘ greatest enthusiasm prevails tbroughou
I our ranks.
Jeff Davis is understood to be at Man
j asses Junction.
i Col. Cowden’s regiment were fired on
' by rebel pickets several times, as they
slept in the road ou their arms.
’ Washington, July 21.
Mi«lwigbt limes' Correspondence!]
—The battle has been one of tho sever
est ever fought on the continent. Up to
2 o’clock our troops had driven the ene
my a distance of nearly two miles.
As the enemy.fell back from one posi
tion, it was only to another equally as
strong, and at every point fresh rcinforce
! laents were posted, in almost without
limit as to members.
There can be no doubt that their force
was at least double ours. The fire Zou
j aves wore terribly cut up, while drawn
: up to make an attack; they wero assault
> ed by a concealed battery, with a strong
' support on their flank, and wero force I
ito break. It is snid both Col. Farnham
and Lieut. Col. John f’ouger, were kill
ed, but it may not prove true. The lat
ter at all events, was severely wounded.
Col. Hunter wounded in die throat. Col.
■ Storm, of the 2d R. I. regiment, and
i Captain Lewis, of the Ist, are reported
! killed.
Gov. Sprague had a horse shot under
him. Major Ballou, of Rhode Island,
was severely wounded in the hand and
thigh, by u cannon ball, Signed,

Tiwirs V» asbiugton dispatch of Sun
! dny before the fight, says our troop* Sat
urday night numbered 45,000, and Pat
terson’s column reported moving down
the Winchester road with 15,000 men,
and is expected to join to-day.
10,000 troops left Alexandria this
morning, so that by to night we shall
have a sujH?ri<»r force there, although this
morning we stood 45,000 against 70,000
Washington, July 21—5:30 P. M.
Official dispatches now before the
President, Scott and Mansfield, corrobo
ates previous accounts. Every battery
of the enemy taken, including their guns,
&C. Fight only ceased when the enemy
retreated to their Manassas lines.
| n r or?rf’s Dispatch.]— The cnemv at
tempted with an immense force to turn
, the right llauk, wh'ch came near being
successful, when a large gun, a 32 poun
i der, opened fire, causing tremendous
havoc among tho enemy, and routing
them.
The members nnd Senators who have
, come in, vary in their estimation of kill
ed from 300 to 3,000. The facts connot
yet be ascertained.
Latkr.—The L»ttery was captured at
I the bridge across Bull’s Run, when their
retreat was cutoff. Their horses were all
killed. It is reported tho black horse
cavarly made an attact on the rear of our
reiieating army, when the remnant of
the fire Zouaves turned and fired, killing
all but six of them.
The 71st New York lost half their
men. The following regin ents were eu
f gaged in the fight:

of the Artillery. It is vaguely reported
rbat Gen. Patterson’s division arrived in
the vieiuity o*’ Ma»asse» this A. M., and
commenced an attack ‘on the rebel
[ forces.
He was witbin twenty-five tniles of tire
| batter ground yesterday, but theexhaust
! ed condition of his men prevent him from
i coming to McDowell’s aid.
It is also reported that 40,000 of our
' troops have been sent to Fairfax from
the other side of the'River.
Add to killed, Lieut. Col. Fowler of
N. Y. 14tb.
Wounded, Col, Lawrence of Mass.
sth, Capt. Ellis of 71st N. Y. regt.
; Badly wduuded, Farnham and Major
Lescere of N. Y. Zouaves.
It is probable the number ofkilled and
wounded is magnified by a large num
ber who are missing. The lowest esti
mate of the killed and the wounded may
be placed at from 4,000 to 5,000.
It is represented in many quarters
that the Ohio Regiment showed the
i greatest consernatiou from wont of confi
i denef in their commanding officer.
It is known on the day previous to this
! battle, a large number of the Ohio regi
! ments publicly protested against being led
by Gen. Schenck, and ii was only
! through the importunities of Col. McCook
i in whom they placed al confidence, and
: other officers, that they were prevented
from making a more formidable rebel
| lion.
i It was known to onr troops yesterday,
1 that Johnston had farmed a junction
t with Beauregard oh the night of the first
, action at Bull’s Kun. Our men could dis
tinctly bear the cars running in from
Manasses Junction, and the cheers with
I which the confederates hailed the arrival
comrades.
It was well known the enemy was supo
: rior in numbers and in their own position.
: This was further confirmed by prisoners
taken, but these facts were probably un
j known at Washington.
Gen. Schenck, as well as the older
field officers, acted admirably. He col
i lected his forces, and covered the retreat,
and up to the last moment wss principal
’ ly engaged in the endeavor to rally his
' men to make a stand at Centreville.
It was the arrival of fresh reinfbrce
! ments to the enemy in superior num
i ber, w Lieb turned the scale of battle. The
i enemy before now might easily Lave
I more to boast of, if they had followed
I up their advantage las: night.

Richmond, Yesterday— A fight com
menced near Manasscs at four o’clock
this morning. It become general about
12 o'clock and continued until about 7
o’clock when the Federalists retreated,
leaving us in possession of the field.
Sherman’s celebrated battery of light
artillery was taken. The battle was at
tended with great slaughter on both sides.
It is impossible to give the loss to-night.

Messrs. J. N. Harris <t Co.—Gentlemen :
Your agent, Mr. A. F. Barnes, whilst passing
through our place, casually heard of A most ef
fectual cure of an obstinate case of salt rheum
in a member of niy family, hiving ]s>litely
requested the facts of the case, I most cheer
fully comply with his request.
The subject of this remarkable cure is my
son, and was attacked-with salt rheum when
about a year and a half old. I applied from
time to time for aid to the most efficient phy
sicians in the eastern states, one of whom had
traveled in Europe; but whilst he would at
' times receive some temporarp relief, still the
disease remained, and would break out occa
sionally, with the most virulent type, until he
rrrived at the age of fourteen years, when my
eye providentially rested upon the advertise
ment of Dr. Weaver’s Canker and Salt Rheum
Syrup and Cerete. lat ouce procured one
bottle, which on trial so encouraged me, that
I procured two more, together with the Cer
ate, and the result is that ray son now is and
has been effectually cured of that wretched
disease for the last three and a, half years.
Respectfully yours. ALFRED PARKER.

The Pain Killer is by universal consent al
. lowed to have won for itself a reputation un
! surpassed in the history of me’di :al prepara
j tions. Its instantaneous effect in the entire
I eradication and extinction of Pain, in all its
j various forms incipental to the human family,
i and the unsolicited written and verbal testi
| mony of the masses in its favor, have been and
are its own best advertisement.
REV. W. B. JACOBS :
i f Newark, N. J., June 6,1860.
Messrs Perry Davis & Son— Gantlemcn :
I Allow me, unsolicited, to send you a word of
■ commendation for your Pain Killer. I have
I used it in rnv family these several years, and
fonnd it all it claims to be. For RFenmatism,
I Coughs Colds, Bures, Cholera tendencies and
i difficulties, as well as diseases generally that
prevail in families, I regard the Pain Killer as
i beyond all price, and as efficacious beyond
; any medicine within my knowledge. We
| keep it as our chief family medicine, and find
its use in ordinary eases worth more than any
doctor. The testimony of others among my
acquaintances and friends is equally favora
able. Many clergymen have spoken of it in
the highest terms as a family medicine. Mis
sionaries in repeated instances have said to me
in person and in their letters, that the Pain
Killer was by far the best medicine usedin
heathen lands, and they use it for themselves
and families, and administer it to others
around them Thus runcli lam inclined to
sny as an act of jnstice to yourselves; and as a
benefit to others. You are at liberty to use
this testimonial, if of any ser<ice.
Rev. W. B. JACOBS.
A . Late Editor Christian Chronicle.
! BEWARE OF ALL IMITATIONS.
The Pain Killer is sold by all respectable
Druggists throughout the U. States and in
foreign countries.

E. M DAVIS, Postmaster of Williamsport

cure.when several physicians attending him
could do him no good, He says, “for rheuma
