Sir Rsimii'i Acceant ef the Reat [COICLVDIB.] Pawing a whit* house by the roadsidB, I saw, fur th* first time, a bedy of infantry, with sloped arms, marching regularly and rapidly toward me. Their faces were not blackened by powder, and it was evident they had not been engaged. In reply to a question, a non-oommi?sioned officer told me in broken English : "We fall back to our lines. The attack did not quite succeed.'* This was Muring to one who had come through such a 0 acep* I bad been witnessing. I had ridden, I suppose, about three or three and a half miles from the hill, though it is not possible to be sure of the distance; when, having passed the white house, I came out on an open pieae of fround, beyond and ciroling which was forest, wo field pieces were unlimbered and guarding the road; the panting and jaded horses in the rear looked as though they had been hard worked, and the gunners and drivers looked worn and dejected. Dropping shots sounded close in front through the woods, but the guns on the left no longer maintained their fire. I was just about to ask on* of the men for a light, when a sputtering fire on my right attracted my attention, and out of the forest or along the road rushed a number of men. The gunners seized the trail of the nearest piece to wheel it round upon them; others made for the tumbrils and horses as if to fly, when a about was raised, "Don't fire; they're our own men;" and in afew minutes on came pell-mell a whole regiment in disorder. I rode across one and stopped him. "We're pursued by cavalry." he gasped; "They've cut us all to pieces." As he spoke a shell burst over the column; another dropped on the road, and out treamed another column of n,en, keeping together with their arms iud closing up the stragglers of the fi--'* regiment. I turned, and to my surprise ?aw ;Le Artillerymen had gore off, leaving one gnn standing by itself. They had retreated wiih their h^iees. While wewere on the hill I had observed ?nd pointed out to my companions a cloud of du-t which rose through the trees on our right front. In my present position that place must ha\ e been on th* right rear, and it occurred to me that M ? r >" ?kcr? <-eally miglt be a body of oavau> u:* at >>ut Murat himself wotld not have cbargea tcea-J wagons in that deep, well-fenced lane. If lue dust cime, as I believe it did, from field artill? ry, that would be a different matter. Any * y i' w?- now well established that the retreat had ieally commenced, though I saw but lew wounded men, and the regiments which were falling baok had not suffered muoh lost. No one seemed to know anything for certain. Even the cavalry charge was a rumor. Several officers said they had carried guns and lines, but then they drifted into th* nonsense which one reads and hears everywhere about '* masked batteries " One or two talked more sensibly about the strong position of the enemy, the fatigue of their men, the want of a reserve, severe losses, and the bad conduotot certain regiments. Not on* spoke as if ha thought of retiring beyond Centrevill*. The clouds of dust arising above the woods marked the retreat of the whole army, and the crowds of fugitives continued to steal away along the ruad. The sun was declining and some thirty miles yet remained to be accomplished ere I could hop* to gain the shelter of Washington. No one knew whither any oorps or regiment was marc hing, but there were rumors of all kinds?"Th* 69th Arc oat to " Tko Fi?? ZsutvM 4U stroyed," and so on. Presently a tremor ran through the m*n by whom I was riding, as the sharp reports of some field pieces rattled through th* woods close at hand. A sort of subdued roar like the voice of distant breakers, ros* in front of us, and the soldiers who were, I think, Germans, broke into a double, looking now and then over their shoulders. There was no choice for me but to resign any further researches. The mail from Washington for the Wednesday steamer at Boston leaves at 2:30 on Monday, and so I put my horse into a trot, keeping in the fields alongside the roads, as much as I could, to avoid the fugitives, till I came once more on the rear of the baggage and store carts, and the pressure of the crowd, who, conscious of the aid whioh the vehicles would afford them against a cavalry charge, and fearful, nevertheless, of their proximity, clambered and shouted like madmen as they ran. The road was now literally covered with baggage. It seemed tome as if the men inside were throwing the things out purposely. " Stop," cried I to the driver of one of the carts, " everything is falling out." " you," shouted a fellow inside. ' if you stop him I'll blow your brains out." My attempts to save Uncle Sam's property were then and there discontinued. On apftroaching Centrevill*, a body of German inantry. or the reserve, came marching down, and s'emmed the eurrent in some degree; they were followed by a brigtde ofg^s and another battalion of fresh troops. I tuVtd up on the hill half b mile beyond. The vehioles had all left but two?my buggy was gone. A battery of field guns was in position where we had been standing The men looked well. As yet there was nothing to indicate more than a retreat I and some ill-behavior among the wagoners and the nffraff ef different regiments. Centrevill* was not a bad position properly eccapi*d, and I saw no r*ason why it should not be held if it was m?ant to renew the attack, I nor any reason why the attack should not be renewed, if there had been any why it should have been made. I swept the field one* more Th* olouds of dust were denser and nearer. That was all. There was no firing?no musketry. I turned my horse's head, and rod* away through the village, and after I got out upon the road the same confusion prevailed. Suddenly the guns on th* bill opened, and at the sam* time came the thuds of artillery from the wood on the right rear. The stampede became general. What occurred at the hill I cannot say. but all the road from Centerville for miles presented such a sight as esn only be witnessed in th* traok of the runaways of an utterly demoralised army. Drivers Ilogg*d, lashed, spurred and beat their horses, or leaped down and abandoned their teams, and san by the side of the road; mounted men, eervanta, and men in uniform, vehicles of all sorts, commissariat wagons thronged the narrow ways At ?v*ry shot a convulsion as it wer* seised upon the morbid mass of bones, Bioew, wood, and iron, and thrilled through it, giving new energy and action to its desperate efforts to get free from iuc.i. Again th* cry ' ro??. "What aro you afraid of7 said I to a man who was rut ning beside m^ " I m not afraid of you," renhed th* ruffian, leveling hii pi*c* at me ai.d pulling the trigger. It was not loaded, or the cap was not on, for the gun did not go off. Iwnsuuar??d. and I did go off as fact as I oould, reb tr- i t-. my counsel for the second time tL-i daj. Ai. i < ?> the fight went on. At one time a whole moss vf infantry, with fixed bayonets ran down the bank of the road, and some falling as they ran m st h*vo V'!led and wou ded those amoc- wfc .n tiie, ??ll. As I kn- * the road would soon become impassable or cloaked up, I put my horre to a gallop and pa?*cd on toward the front, But mounted men still rode faster, shouting out "cavalry are eontng. ' Again I ventured to speak to some otfioera whom I overtook, and said, "If these runaways are not stopped the whole of the jmst* and pickets into Washington will fly a , them, without saying a word, marred his horse and dashed on in front. 1 d<i not knew whether he ordered th* move?i DOu' l'JTtn was now suddenly checked, and preasing^n through the "^e roadside, I saw a regiment of in? 'jn th*w*y. with their front toward Centrevill*. a musket was levelled at I P"**1 front?"Stop, or 1 11 fire At the same time th* officers w*re Shouting oat, Don't let a soul pass." I addressed one of tham and said: " Sir' * *a> * British aubjeet; I am not. I war* yoa, running away I h av* dona my beat to stop this disgraceful rout (u I had) and have bean telling them there are no cavalry within mile* of them." " I can't let you pass, sir!" I bethought me of Gen. Scott's paas. The adjutant read it, and the word waa given along the line, "Let that man paas"' and so I rede through, uncertain if I oould now gain the Long Bridge in time to paw over without the countersign. It was about this time I met a cart by the roadside surrounded by a group of soldiers, some of whom had "6#" on their caps. The owner, as I took him to be. was in great distress, and cried out as I passed, "Can you tell me, sir, where the Sixty-ninth are ? These men say they are cut to pieces " "I can't tell you. ' 4 I am in charge of the mails, sir, and I will deliver them if I die for it. You are a gentleman, and I can depend on your word. Is it safe for me to go on: ' Not knowing the oxteat of the debar7c, I assured him it was, and asked the men of the regiment how they happened to be there. " Shure, the colonel himself told as to go off, every man on his own hook, and to fly for our lives," replied one of them. The mail agent,who told me he was an Englishman, started the cart again. I sincerely hope no bad result to himself or his charge followed my advice. I reached Fairfax Court House; the people, black and white, with anxious faces, were at the doors, and the infantry were under arms. I was besieged with questions, though hundreds of fugitives had passed through before me. At one house I stepped to ask for water for my horse; the owner sent his servant for it cheerfully, the very house where he had in vain asked for something to eat in the forenoon. "There's a fright among them," I observed, in reply, to his question respecting the commissariat drivers. "They're afraid of the enomy's cavalry." "Are you an American?" said the man. "No, I am not." "Well, then," he said, "there will be cavalry on them soon enough. There's 20,000 of the best horsemen in the world in Virginny!" Washington was still 18 mile? away. The road was rough aud uncertain, and again my poor steed was under way; but it was no use trying ?o outstrip the runaways. Once or twice I imagined I heard guns in the rear, but I could not be sure of it in consequence of the roar of the flight behind me. It was most surprising to see how far the foot soldiers had contrived to get in advance. After sunset ^ the moon rose, and amid other acquaintances I jogged alongside an officer who was in charge of Colonel Hunter, the commander of a brigade,I believe, who waa shot through the neck, and was inside of a cart, escorted by a few troopers. This officer was, s I understood, the major or second in command of Colonel Hunter s regiment, yet he had considered it right to take charge of his chief, and to leave his battalion. He said they h?d driven back the enemy with ease, but hud not been supported, and blamed?as bad officers and good ones will de?the conduct of the general; " So mean a fight I never saw." I was reminded of a Crimean general who made us all merry by saying, after the bombardment, "In the whole oourse of my experience I never saw a siege conducted on such prinsiples as these." Our friend had been without food, but not, I suspect, without drink?and that, we know, affects empty stomnohs very much? since two o'clock that morning. Now, what is to be thought of an officer?gallant he may be as steel?who says, as I heard this gentleman ay to a picket who asked him how the day went in front. " Well, we've been licked into a cocked hat; knocked to ." This was his tn tftimiUra onrfg, AAnvn/i, r.ffinAri, au<l Hiou uu gaaid and dottobmooi, wLtlo I,' i ignorant of the disaster behind, tried to mol- i lify the effect of the news by adding, "Oh, it'a I; a drawn battle. The troops are re-occupying i the positioa from which they started in the morning." Perhaps he knew his troops better than I did. It was a strange ride, through a country now still as death, the white road shining like a river in the moonlight, the trees ] black as ebony in the shade; now and then a ; figure flitting by into the forest or across the I road?frightened friend or lurking foe, who could say ? Then the anxious pickets and 1 sentinels all asking. "What's the news?" and evidently prepared for any amount of loss. Twice or tnrice we lost our way, or our certainty about it, and shouted at isolated houses ' and received no reply, except from angry watch dogs. Then we were set right as we approached Washington by teamsters. For an hour, however, we seemed to be traveling along a road which in all its points far and near wasJc 12 miles from the Long Bridge." j Up bills, down into valleys, with the silent grim wood for ever by our sides Now and then, in the profound gloom, broken only by a spark from the horse's hoof, came a dull but familiar sound, like the shutting of a distant door. As I approached Washington, having left the colonel and his escort at some seven 1 miles on the south side of the Long Bridge, I found the grand guards, pickets' posts, and individual sentries burning for news, and the word used to pass along, "What does that man say, Jack ?" "Begoara, he tells me we're not het at all?only retraiting to the ould lines for convaniency of fighting to-morrow again. Oh, that's illigant!" On getting to the trtede pout, however, the countersign was demanded; of oourse I bad not got it. But the officer passed me through on the production of Gen. Scott'* safeguard. The lights of the city were in sight and reflected on tho waters of the Potomac. just glistened by the clouded moon, shone the g'iy lamps of the White House, whore the .President was probably entertaining some friends. In silence I passed over tho Long bridge. Some few hours later it quivered under the steps of a rabble of unarmed men. At the Washington end a regiment with piled arms were waiting to cross over into Virginia, singing and cheering. Before the morning they received orders, I believe, to assist in keeping Maryland quiet. For the hundredth time I repeated the cautious account, which to the best of my knowledge was true. There were men, women, and soldiers to hear it. The clocks had just struck 11 p. m. as I passed Willard'a. The pavement in front of the hall was crowded. The rumors of defeat had come in, but few of the many who had been fed upon lies and the reporta of oomplete victory which prevailed oould credit the intelligence Seven hours had not elapsed befoA the streets told the atory. The "Grand Army of the North," as it was called, had representatives in every thoroughfare, without arms, orders, or officers, standing out in the drenching rain.. When all these most unaccountable phenomena were occurring, I was fast asleep, Dut I oould acarce credit my informant in the morning, when he told me that the federalists, utterly routed, had fallen baok upon Arlington to defend the capital, leaving nearly five batteries of artillery, 8,000 muskets, immense quantities of stores and baggage, and their wounded and prisoners in the hands of the enemy ! Let the American journals tell the story their own way. I have told mine as I know it. It has rained incessantly and heavily since early morning, and the oountrv must be unfit for operations; otherwise, if Mr. Davis desired to press his advantage, he might now be very close to Arlington Heights He has alretdy proved that he has a fair right to be considered the head of a "belligerent power." ! But, though the North may reel under the shock, I cannot think it will make her desist frem the struggle, unless it be speedly follewed by blows more deadly even than the repulse I' frwm Manassas. There is much talk now (of "maskad batteries," of course) of outflanking, and cavalry, and such matters. The truth ems to be that the men were overworked, | kept oat for twelve or fourteen hours in the sun, exposed to long range fire, badly officered, aud of defiolent regimental organj isation. Then came a most difficult oper1 ation? to withdraw this army, so constituted, out of action in faoe of an en?rgetic enemv who had repulsed it. The retirement of the baggage. which waa without adequate guards, ana was in the hands of ignorant drivers, was misunderstood and created alarm, and that alarm became a panic, which became frantic on the appearance of the enemy ad on the opening of their goo* on the runaways But the North will be all the more eager to retrieve this disaster, although it may divert her from the scheme which has been suggested to her of punishing England a little while longer. The exultatien|of the South can only be understood by those who may see it, and if the federal government perseveres in its design to make Union by force it may prepare for a struggle the result of which will leave the Union very little to fight for. More of the "battle" in my next. I pity the public across the water, but they must be the victims of hallucinations and myths it is out of my power to dispel or rectify just new. Having told so long a story, I can scarcely expeotyour readers to have patience, and go back upon the usnal diary of events; but the records, such as they are, of this extraordinary repulse must command attention. It it impossible to exaggerate their importance. No man oan predict the results or pretend to guess at them SICK AND WOUNDED SOLDI HIS la Hospital, August 16, 1961.
