'rholapse of twenty years has left the fields and wooded hills upon which the battle of Bull Run wits fought nluch as they were when on that hot Sunday in July, 1ilil, the young armnies of the peo ple for the first tilne joined in comblat. At this spot twenty years ago the raw nucleus of the Grand Army of the Poto mac fell upon the equally undisciplined encly and forctd hint through thick woods, across raviles, up hillsides, and into what promised to I, utter rolte, but accident of war turned the tide of battle and undlller vigorous counter at tack the asnailani,t, lied dismayed to the ha;nks tof the I'oto:nr,c. What the writer wishe to set diowi in plain terlns is the appwartlnce of the lattle lii l now adlll th', imipress4ions that hi, lSe Mrolndings di'ik ( l lilpoi :i hnirstr o f' thli , who l;,ight. lIthll 11iiu is best rteachd frolut Marins sas village, U pretty phil, which Mill' ters 4sngly on hlvel laId a ifew hundlred plljle, who, liling at it point onl the Virginia Midland RIailroad, thirty mijles west of WVaslhington, take the trade of tl, country for at consziderable distance arotilld. Riding north on the rod to sudily Springs one sees the clearly marked outlines of a fort in at corn hield, and, plassing further, tho eye is attract ed by the li iutiful line of the lln Ridge far away to the Northwest. At the eiil, olf a six-Iile trot through Ia pleasamut country of tearmls, thie mo11st ill teresting part of the battile field, Il ory Hill, is reached. THIE IFI ELD'S l' t.V IOINT. 'lThe lenry Ho11(w11e standls iupol Ienry hill, a flat tlre crest, the lield'M key point whence l caie the first great ouit Ilrst of battle and aiross which for wards and backwards the contendling lines surged from noon until the day was lost. The'li hoI is ita leuasanlit struc tulllre with mallrks of nWllt e ahloit it, andii is made inviting by ia lawn ill whic there is a large elhi and several small locust trees. The eyie of the lapllroaclh ing visitor does not rest uIlpOn thiese trees, howe'ver, delightlful ias they iappear, for the obj'cts of ilpromlinenlce are a little (odi's Ac4re' grove in f1ront of the house and ai ruloe llonument ill the rear. 'Coase I *wll heaih ,just arter de tight il'," siai lidlhdrick, tllhe dlrkey driver, as we clinhced the hillsidle rulld to the house "colll se I IwVll I, 11u 1 seed mlloah tidead i lu stiretched stillff ill dat ai oat field o41r 1i1r 11 liil I ter Ntall seed afore noltr 1sencel. ltar's Marse lHenry, 1he kin tell ye'."

Sir, that ridge hybeond the inll] Ruoun treai iM iln Fairfax COllty. Look tolthe east.. On this siid1; of 'air fax Ridge lay the l"ederal air'y on the Ilight lefore the battle. The Colilntry there was partly cultivated then as it is now, but, turning your eyes further to the north you see a forest extending to the stream. Through that forest, now of' larger growth, the Federals, who were to turn Beauregard's left, moved, cotting their road as they went to Slid Iy ]prings, which you see in the dis tanie there to the north. Then crossing Hull Run they 'o11e down directly upon this ioint. There remain fhw 4v'idences t Ilinus as it did then. Now, liark, i'! The (ol nfeilerath Coloiiel Evans, hor inst down thire at the Mtolle lbridge, oil the WaitrranitOnl Pike. Is it clear to you o Well, sir, Evans, sllispecting .nomnthing wrong, faced up stream, and with Colonels Bee and Barton, threw himself into that field just beyond, the valley. You see the field now: it is still clear. To make a long story short, when the Federal attacking column, clumsily handled, struck Evans, they thought Beauregard's whole army was in their front. If they had pushed on they would have crushed Beauregard. No doubt of it. Evans, with a handful of men held them for an hour and a 'calf, and when he was forced back, he retreated to his plateau, where the fiercest fighting was done. The Con federates ran past this house towards (len. Jackson, who had just posted his brigade at that ridge a few hundred yards to the northeast of the house. Jackson's men were lying flat on the ground, but Jackson was on his horse. He sat there as still and' steadfast as this monument. Now and then he waved his hand to his men, among whose shells were falling and around whose heads bullets were flying like bees in harvest time. A soldierof that brigade was here a few years ago, and told ime that he thought it too hot to stay. 110 was slipping back, when Jackson seeing him, raised his hand. The fellow drop. yed back to his place." WIIERI"; JA('KSON BIECAME "i''TONIEWALL." As he talked Mr. ilenry led his visitor beyond the lawn into a lield where grew long grass, daisies, dandelions, dock weeds, blue thistle and thickly matted blackberry briars. Slightly in advance and at the further end of the tfhl was a line of young pines which have sprung lip since the battle, making t'e field Narrower now than it was then. Beyond this growth of small pines stretches a wide belt of oak timber, then standing. Eating blackberries as we walked on, we came toea slight ridge near the woods. It needed no one to explain that this was whero Jackson stood "like la stone wall." From this spot,where his horse's hoofs made their memorable mark, I could trace by the red road-bed leading to Sudley Springs, one line of Federal approach, and immediately below, in the little valley of Young's Branch, I I couhli see the Warrenton Pike that brought UInion help from 8Stonebridge across Bull Run. Far away in beautiful undulations roll pleasant fields and sternly in the background still grow the very oaks that once were bruised and shattered in the shock of battle. ISA'TI.E-FIELD FANCIES. Standing where Jackson stood, it is easy to ropeople this beautiful crest, and with slight effort fancy fills in the picture. Panting after a: hot run of a mile and a half, Bee's men and Bar ton's huddle panic-stricken at the edge of' the woods. 'T'ln rebels are routed. The hard-worked men of the North, driving constantly forward, cross War renton road, push up the hills and reach the plateau. Their batteries sweep the crest and send death-dealing bolts, hiss ing hot, into the woods. Bee is in sore extremity. I[is face is streaked with the smuont of powder. His eyes are wild. his sword is in constant motion above his head. H]is voice is husky, for shouts of' coimmand long since gave place to whispers of entreaty. Over the field lie comes in search of his badly smitten run aways. "'General," he exclaimed reaching Jiacksoi, "'they are beating us back." "Sir," replies Jackson, we will give tlhOm the bayonet." Again Beie's sword waves encournagmnent to his troops, in rain of bullets he ruens forward, saying to some who are with hlim : "'There is Jackson standinglike a stone wall !" Instantly thereafter ee smites his breast, and, stumnbling, falls back war'd upon a clump of briars. 1To atnd fro across his body fly the bits: of lead, reginmenut mleet regiment ill the fierce charge and the thick of the fight is on. A ldozen rocks in the midst of a tangle ofl Ine hushl, mark the spot where Bee (lied, and a few steps distalnt a simiilar sound designates the place of Barton's fall. One conviction Iforces itself' upon1 the visitor who walks from point to point in this fiel--that thle people never have dlone justice to the heroism of the Ulnion soldiers who through no fault of their own lost the battle here. "May I ask what has become of tile hall in your house f" said General Sher man to Mir. Ilenry. "The house hadl to be rebuilt," was the reply, "and it was rcodieled." "I thought so," sarid Sherman with a grint smile. "I was in that hall, but it ,got too hot for me." It is not very pleasant for the gentle manu who, witlh an agedl sister, made deaf by the battlo and so remaining now, occupies the I-Henry mlansioL to tell of the fighting in and aroundl the house. Inl the graveyard grove is a tomLston, with the inscription: Killed near this spot by the explosion of shells in her dwelling during thile battle on the 21st of July, 1861. When killed she was in her 8ith year and confined to her bed by infirmities of age. Her husband, Dr. Isaao Ikhry, was a sur geon in the United States Navy, on board the frigate Constellation. When the artillery began to reek the hill and shot came tearing through the' house, Mrs. Henry's invalid sonatook his mother in his arms anh bore heraor the field, down the hill, to a shelter~tgplace, Two daughters of the house followed, When the tide of battle momentarily rolled away to the right, the party re turned to the house, but scarcely had they reached the lawn when a fiercer storm than ever circled 'around. Mrs. Henry was shot in several places,.one of the daughters'was made deaf for life, and the terrible shock hastened the son's death. Great locust trees that then stood around the lawn were broken off and swept down, and from their stumps the lesser locusts now standing have grown. In a grove of these trees, on a grass-covered mound in the rear of the house, is a mIomument of rough, red granite, whereupon are scratched the nautes ot'visiting veterans. The shaft is capped with shells, one of which was hurled by "Long Toni" from Fairfax heights far across Bull Run. Though the monument was put up by Union sol. diers, the bones of Five Conbfederates are buried beneath. Pushing aside some hollyhocks, now in flower around the mound, I was able to read the inscrip tion : In Memory of Ti1E PATIoOTs Who fell at Blt'LL RUN, July 21, I1il. DOWN AT TIIE BRIDGE. With taut reins Shedrick let his horses down the farm road leading from the plateau, and, crossing Young's Branch, we emerged upon the Warren ton pike. The Stone House known to history still stands at the intersection of the Sadly Springs and Warrenton roads, and we drank from the same well whence thirsty hundreds drew refresh ing draughts twenty years ago. From the Stone House along the pike to the stone bridge across Bull Run it is a long mile, the road being up hill and down and twice crossing the rivulet. "The Yankees retreated along this road after the lighting on the IHenry farm, didn't they, Shedrick ?" "I's fiee to say, sir, dat day kind o' naden for do bridge." "But didn't they run f" "No, sah; when de rebels got de Union geemmon on the go back dey kind o' went along dis road toards de bridge." "But wlhat's the difference between 'on the run' and 'on the go back." "Heap o' difference, sah, heap o' dif ference." This cute distinction appeared to tic. kle Shedrick, who at the time of the bat tle, was a slave and who, in his respect for the North, could not be induced to admit that those who set him free were driven in wild flight across the bridge now before our very eyes. The bridge looks old but steadfast. A wall of stone is on either side and the road-bed on the bridgce is of red clay, just as on the pike itself. The stream that plasses under the btidge is now narrow and slug. gioh, ult a raini storms senlds the waters roaring dtwn between the high vwalls of red rock and tlhe dry undar growth of summer ;, the run's race-track is frequently subnerged. To the east is F"airfax county, fil.ed upon this side with fields and thick woods, in the depths of which the honesl of men and hlorses are founnd to this day. 'I'o the west, along the road that took us thither, stretch the in(lulating lands of Prince William county. 'Things are somewhat desolate at the bridge, but it is a novelty to sit on the stone buttress and. read of war's deadly doings while from the rank grass mid water below the lull-frog mocks the dlrum. WIIERI TIr Po'IIER TROUIIE. BREGAN. A year after the first battle the second i battle of Bull Run was fought upon the same ground. But in the second battle thie positions of the opposing forces were reversed. Henry Hill and the adjoining B3ald Hill are the Ionmts from which the operations durilng the second battle can best be studied. Far to the west stretch the Bull Run :moulntains, and in the dis tance the Blue Ridge.
