The Great Battle.
The Ilichmond papers of the 24th,
contains the following account of the
great battle fought on Sunday last:
We are able to give the reader an
authentic statement of this battle.
General 3eauregard diaposed his
army along the banks of Bull Run,
from Union Mills Ford to the Stone
Bridge Ford, the stream being be
tween the two armies, aid our Brig
ades so arranged as to guard the va
rious fords between the two points
above named.
The enemy advanced withingrango
at 8 o'clock, P. M., opened a heavy
fire on Gen. Bonham's command at
Mitchell's Ford, and kept it up some
time to deceive our troops as to the
real point of attack. It was soon dis
covered to be a feint, and the left
wing of our line found to be very
heavily pressed. The enemy con
centrated on that point, hy rapid
marches an overwhelming mass of
troops of all arms, and at 10 o'clock
the battle raged to its height. Gen
erals Beauregard and Johnson ar
rived on the scene nearly at the same
time, and both exhibited great per
sonal prowess and courage in the en
gagenment. Gen. Beauregard rode up
and down the line till his horse was
killed; Gen. Johnson seized a stan
dard and rallied a wavering regiment.
Troops were rapidly moving fromn the
right and center to the relief of the
left,' and by 3 o'clock 15,000 of our
men were there in the furious action
against :3.,000 of the enemy. At
that hour Gen. Kirby Smith's Brig
ade arrived on the railroad from Win
chester to Manassas Junction, at a
point within two miles of Stone
bridge. Seeing the violence of the
contest there, this general stopped
the cars, and dismounting his lmen,
marched straight on the enemy, with
out orders, and without going to the
Junction, thereby saving a five mile
march. (*:nu. Beauregard did not at
first recognize this brigade, and be
lieved it a flauk movement of the en
emy, till they came near enough for
the flag to be distinguished. On their
arrival in line, a general charge was
mad,-, and the enemy broke and fled
