The sat .tlaiiiDsipi ! Brilliant
Victor) !—The mkmii) Completely
Manassas Junction, Jul)’ 18—10 p. m
—Victory perches upon our banners. The
army of the Potomac, under the command
of General Beauregard, gave battle to the
enemy to-day, at Bull's Bun, four miles from
Mauassas Junction, in a Northwest direction,
and three miles to the left of the Alexandria
Railroad. Thu enemy attempted to cross
the ford at sc /oral points in great numbers,
but were repulsed by our brave and deter
mined troops three times, with heavy less
on the enemy’s side. The enemy retreated
about 5 o’clock in the afternoon in confusion,
two of our regiments pursuing them. A
large number of them have been taken pris
oners. On our side, the casualties are few.
Yesterday the enemy appeared in force at
Fairfax Court-House, when, after exchanging
a few shots with them, our troops, retreated
to Bull’s Run, Geu. Beauregard preferring
to give them battle there. The Gejeral was
hurriedly sent for and quickly came to the
scene of action, when he ordered the retreat,
which nas proved to he a brilliant stragetic
movement. At first our troops were much
displeased, believing the retreat had been
ordered by some junior officer; but when
they learned that the order emanated from
their General-in- ‘Lief they were perfectly
satisfied having in him unbounded confi
dence. The regiments engaged in this bril
liant aud successful battle were the first Vir
ginia, seventeenth (Alexandria) Virginia,
the Mississippi and Louisiana.
Ail of our men behaved with the utmost
coolness and fought like the deciplined sol
diers of a Nepolean. It would be invidious
to single out the troops from any particular
State us having exhibited qualities not found
iu all The conduct of our gallant little
army (never before under lire on this occa
sion surpasses all praise. For steadiness un
der u most galliant fire, indifference to their
peril good order and percisiou of aim, history
may be ransacked in vain for a para lei.—
‘1 he enemy outnumbered them in the pro
portion of three to one. Thu Washington
Artillery, of New Oilcans, were at an early
stage ot the battle given an opportunity of
displaying their high state of efficiency and
marksmanship, and they abundantly justi
; fied the reputation of the battalion. An eye
witness says at every fire they made a wide
gap in the enemy’s ranks.
The first Virginia regiment, Col. Moore’s
bore the brunt of the action, the killed and
wounded on our side being chiefly in that
regiment, as I have already informed you
per telegraph. Col. Moore himself was
wounded soon aftor the battle commenced. !
When being unable to continue at the head
of his men, the command devolved upon
Lieut. Col. Fry, aided by Maj. Skinner arid
Adjutant Mitchell, who informed me that
the bullets of the enemy came like hail.—
lie saw eleven of his men wounded at one
volley. Capt. James K. Lee, company 8.,
of same regiment, was mortally wounded.—
While 1 unite, lie is still in life, but not ex
pected to survive the morning.
The enemy is variously reported to have 1
lost from five to fifteen hundred—the former
probally bi ing nearest the truth. Not hav
ing been on the field, lam unable to dee- j
cribe the ground, but am informed the cne

heavy guns on the embankment which slopes

tillery, and fought hand to hand, with the j
Capt. Dulany, of the Fairfax Riflemen,
was seriously wounded. Lieut. Javins, of
the Mount Vernon Guard, of Alenandria, !
was also seriously wounded Win. Sangster, I
of the Alexandria Riflemen, was killed.
Oce of the enemy’s Colonels was killed by
a squad of Col. Kershaw’s second South
Carolina regiment, his horse shot, and §7OO
in gold found upon his person.
The enemy will doubtless return to-mor
row with reinforcements, being exasperated
by their humiliating defeat.

Incident* of Hit* narfiliN uri;
—From tlie Baltimore Exchange wo copy 1
the following incidents of the lute great Fe- !
deral victory at Falling Waters, Gainesville
and JVlartinsburg, on the South of tlie Poto
mac. The feat of the “ contraband*’(Vir
ginia nigger) capturing a lieutenant, regi
mentals and all, is suggestive :
The most brilliant act during the dashing !
exploit of the day, was the capturing of \
between forty and fifty Federal prisoners by j
a body of horsemen. After the army had j
crossed the river at Williamsport, Gen. Nog
ley’s brigade diverged from the main road
on the road leading to Iledgcsville; compa
ny A, of the 15th Pennsylvania regiment,
were sent in advance of the main body as
scouts. It consisted of sixty-three men. At
the residence of William McGarry, Esq., a
farmer, they called a halt, and hailing one
of tlie daughters, inquired for her father,
whom they said they had an account to set
tle with, as he had been feeding and harbor
ing rebel troops.
The young lady said she did not know
where her father was, when twelve of the
party started out to hunt him up. Several
of the remaining troops now grossly insulted
the young lady, and said to her if she did
not reveal where her father was that they
would put her to death, and pointed their
bayonets at her heart. At this stage of the
proceedings, a body of twenty-five horsemen
galloped up, under ('apt. Kob’t Swan. They
were on the point of being fired upon, when
(’apt. Swan shouted “my God! men, don’t
fire on your friends. Down with your mus
kets.’’ 1 pon which they, thinking it was
some of their own troops, obeyed the order
As quick as thought, Swan’s men were off’
their horses, and, with drawn sword* and
pistols demanded their surrender, which they
did without hesitation.
They then disarmed them, and taking
their straps oft” their canteens, tied their
hands behind their backs, and in this man
lier marched them off’ through Martinsburg
to Winchester. The men weie ordered to
march at a “double quick,” which they com
plained they could not do, as they were
much wearied; but Cupt. Swan’s orders were
imperative, and forward they were pushed
with all possible dispatch. Tne captain of
the company captured was in town this eve
ning, apparently much depressed about the
matter; the remaining twelve men refused
to march uuder him, blaming him for their
misfortunes. Swan’s party each took two
muskets in front of them on their horses,
and made these men throw away their haver
sacks, Ac. This was a daring feat, and was
perb ruied by a Marylander and a c tizen of
Another feat aud one more humorous, was
that of a slave of Air Garry, who captured a
Lieutenant of the same company, disarmed
him, and divesting him of his “regimentals,”
sword and pistol, donned them himself and
marched him “prisoner of war” ofl to Win
chester. “ Nigger as good as white man”
Daring I’cal of l.ottisiuuiaii'i.
The Petersburg Express of yesterday says :
M e have heard from a source entitled to
the fullest confidence, that one of the most
daring feats of the age was consumated near
Newport News on Friday last by Confeder
ate soldiers. Ever since the killing of the
much lamented Lieut. Col. Chas. Dreux,
four of his men have resolved to avenge his
taking off. With this view, they obtained

themselves with several days’ rations, pro
ceeded stealthily through the forest until al
most within sight of the catr.p at Newport
They laid in ambush for five days awaiting
an opportunity to avenge the death of their
Colouel, but uone presented until Friday last.
On that day they espied a party of seven
\ ankees, three of whom were evidently of
ficers, engaged at a small stream, measuring
with lines, and seemingly preparing for the
erection of a bridge. They were all un
armed, and the Louisianians resolved that
the prey they had so long and perseveringly
sought should not escape them. Knowing
that the report of their guns wouH alurm the
camp not far distant, they speedily deter
mined to rely solely upon the use of their
bayonets, aud crawling upon their hands
and knees to within a convenient distance,
they suddenly sprang forward, each man
selecting his victim. Two officers were killed,
but one of them a Major, not dying at the
first thrust, was struck over the head with
the butt of a musket until life was extinct.
The other five men were secured one of them
severely wounded and carried into camp at
Yorktown. The wounded man proved to be
a Captain, and when our informant left York
town, it was thought that he would certain
ly die, having received a severe bayonet, stab
iu his breast, and other cuts iu different
portions of his body.

GEN. BARNARD E BEF..
1 pou the wings of shining Victory comes
the dark shaft of Death. Aud with the
first impulsive leapings of the heart in the
glad shout of triumph for our cause, the
breath of Carolinians is stilled in mourning
for our gallant dead. In that they lived,
they were ours—in that they are dead, it
was tor us they died. Upon each heart in
Carolina they have levied a tribute. Tho
bitter, bitter tears of those who loved them
dearest in life, the little hands of pleading
children, demand of us, even in the rush of
life, and the fierce cry of victory, to pause in
silence over their biers, and to mingle our
sorrows with the unutterable grief of hearts
that caunot be comforted. And to-day
South Carolina, like a Spartan mother,
mourns her lost sons.
Fcrhaps there was no man of his age in
the Confederate scvice who had won for
himself a fairer fame, both as an accomplish
ed officer and high-toned gentlemen, than
the late General Barnard E. Bee, of this
State. I pon the desperate field of battle,
where more than once his gallant blade had
won him tlie applause of the army and of
his native State, sword in hand, he perished
—an untimely death.
Leu. Bee, deccnded from an old Carolina
family of gentlemen, was about 35 years of
age, aud leave a widow and infant son.
He entered West Point a Cadet in 1841 ;
was made Brevet Second Lieut , uant, od ln
fanty, in 1845. During the Mexican war
he served with marked distinction, winning
two brevets before the close of the war—
that of First Lieut , “for gallant and meri
torious conduct iu the battle of Cerro Gordo,
on the 18th April, 1847,” in which he was
wounded; and that of Captain, in the stor
ming of Chcpultepcc.on the 13th of Septem
ber, 184/, “tor gallant and meritorious con
duct. Since 1848 he acted as Adjutant,
and rose to a full First Lieutency March,
His achivcments, since that time, in wars
amongst the Indians, were such as to attract
tov\ ards him the attention of his State, and
in his dying hand, on the field in which he
fell, he grasped the sword which South Caro
liuu had taken pride in presenting him.
Few men of his age attracted more atten
tion in his profession, and such was his repu
tation, that President Davis, at once raising
him from tho rank ot a Captain, appointed
him a Brigadier General in the Provisional
It will not be easy to fill his place in the
Confederate service; but South Carolima,
more especially, mourns his loss, for he w’as
a true representative of her race. Mild,
modest, amiable of deportment, open, gener
ous, bold and dashing in achievements, nice
of honor and punctilious of fame, winning
friends by sterling conduct, as fearless of
foes as sensitive of regard, ho was all that
his State could ask of a gentlemen, a soldier
and a patriot. South Carolina will ever
bend in honor over the toomb of such a
LIEUT. COL. BENJ. J. JOHNSON.
Lieut. Col. Benjamin J. Johnson, the sec
ond in command of the Hampton Legion, is
a native of the town of Beaufort, 8. C., and
was about forty-five years of age at the peri
od of his death, llis brothers reside in this
State—two of whom arc clergymen of the
Episcopal church—one, the Rev. Rich’d
Johnson, being the Chaplain of Hampton’s
Col. Johnson was educated at Williams
burgh, Virginia, and commenced life as a
planter ; but afterwards studied law with
Col. DeTreville, and came to the bar of beau
fort,where lie practiced afe w years. During
his residence in Beaufort lie commanded the
12th Regiment of Infantry, and was highly
esteemed as an officer.
In 1837, when barely eligible in years,
he was elected a member of the House of
Representatives from St. Helena Parish,
where be served many years, until he was
transferred to the Senate by the same consti
tuency. Col. Johnson served in the Senate
for two terms, aud until his removal to
Christ Church Parish, about three years
ago. Immediately upon his removal he was
elected a member of the House of Represen
tatives from the election district of Christ
Church, and continued a member to the
time of his death.
Col. Johnson’s career in Legislature was
marked by attention and intelligence. Ho
frequently filled the position of Chairman
of iinportent committees, and was known as
a working member, lie participated fully
in the debates of both Houses, and was al
ways distinguished by fairness and ability
in his mode of conducting them. He filled
a high position in the politics of the State,
as evidenced by the prominence of his name
in the late election for Governor of South
Carolina. Ilis heart was always true to the
honor of his State, as exhibited throughout
his life and illustrated by his death.
Col. Johnson’s intlueuce was largely ow
ing to his personal characteristics. A man
of strong will, strong tempo*-, bold, self-reli
ant, imperturbable, energetic, heat once im
pressed upon those with whom he was
thrown in contact, his thorough manhood. —

and affection. In his life he sustained the
measures of a Carolina gentlemen, aud in
his death he has added to it that of the

Gen. Taylor to his personal staff, on which
he served until January, 1840. For his
