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 my were strongly posted with numerous heavy guns on the embankment which slopes down to the ford, while our troops were in the hollow disputing their advance to the other side. The Alexandria Riflemen are said to have partii ularly distinguished themselves, having crossed the terrific fire from the enemy’s ar tillery, and fought hand to hand, with the j Yankee hirelings. 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. I .shall probably be able to ascertain addi tional particulars when the official reports come in. Incident* of Hit* narfiliN uri; HaUle. —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 Washington county. 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” that time. 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 permission to leave their c.unp, and providing themselves with several days’ rations, pro ceeded stealthily through the forest until al most within sight of the catr.p at Newport News. 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.

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, 1851. 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 Army. 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 son. 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 Legion. 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. — lie won iriends in the closest ties of regard 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 patriot. GEN. GARNETT.
