RUSSELL'S LETTER TO THE LONDON TIMES Til* Retails ( ike Battle. Washisoto*, July 29.?On thia day week ike Confederates could hare marohed into the ' capital of the United Statea. Thej took no immediate steps to follow np their anezpeeted success. To thia moment their movementa hare betrayed no fixity of parpoae or aettled filan to pursue an aggreaaire war, or even "to iterate Maryland if they have the meant of doing so." And. indeed, their success was, as I suspected, not known to them in ita fail proportione, and their loss, combined, perhaps, with the condition of their army, as much as political and prudential motives aotvuting their leaders, may have had a fair share in producing the atate of inactivity with which the Federalists have no reason to be dissatisfied Let us look around, now that the smoke of battle baa cleared away, and try to examine the condition of the (pound First as regards foreign relations. Tne personal good feeling and perfeot understanding which exists between the representatives of the great European powers directly interested ia America are founded on an appreciation of the exact demands of the interests they represent, and on the necessities of a common honorable policy England, having avast commerce direct 17 involved in the contest, has naturally been the first to provide for it* safety in American waters, and has also felt it desirable, in the face of the desperate counsels which hare been given on this side of the Atlantic, to furnish a trifling reinforcement to her small military establishment in Canada. The fleet at present in observation is neither powerful nor offensively disposed, and no exception can be taken to the mode in which it has acted, by the most sensitive Americans, although attempts have been made to arouse vulgar prejudices by erroneous statements respecting the views and declarations of Admiral Milne. The authoritative aasertions on that subject in some of the journals here are destitute of authority, ezoept that of the writer. What is of more consequence, perhaps, in respect to the preservation of friendly relations between England and the United States, is the fact that a great change has come over the Tiews of the members or member of the Cabinet who was supposed to seek reconstruction of 1 the Union in a war with Great Britain, and that the most favorable disposition is evinced to eultivate our good graces, not by any sacrifice of principles, but by the adoption of a tone at once calm, iuat and dignified, which will b? appreciated by the foreign office. It is not probable either that we shall hear much more about the immediate annexation of Canada, and the fury of the 760,000 * better than French" soldiers with which we were threatened will be for a time averted M Mereier, the energetic and able representative of onr lllv. in uid t/1 rnitorUin mtmnir notion that the oontest now waging cannvt tern?inate in the success of the North in what it proposes to itself. M de Stoeckl. the Russian Minister, who haa lired long in Amerioa, knows her statesmen and the genius of her people and inatitationa, and ia a man of safaeity and vigorous intellect, ia believed to old aimilar views. Perhapa the only minister who haa really been nentral, observing faithfully all engagements to aotaally eziating powera, and aeauloual^ avoiding all occasion of offence or irritability to an irritable people, rendered more than usually so by the evil days which have fallen upon them, ia the diecreet and loyal nobleman who representa Great Britain, and who ia the only one threatened with a withdrawal of paaaperta and all aorta of pains and penalties for the presumed hostility of his Government te the United States. The world seea that the North haa not treated the aoathernera aa rebels?we will not aay it has not dared to do so. Bat the Federalists have treated the Confederates up to thia moment aa bellirerenta. Rebels are hanged, imprisoned, and shot at discretion. Their flags are not received; the exchange of priaenera with rebels is incredulous. A regular "blockade" of rebel ports is quite anomalous. It remains to be seen, after Mr. Davis's recent hints, what the Government dares to do in the ease of the "piratea" whom its cruisers caught in the act, red-handed, of privateering piracy. Meantime the arm raised to chastise and subdue has been struck down, and the attitnde ol the North is just now defensive. There will be on the part ef the one people, whom the American press has most insulted and abased, every disposi- ! tion to give fair play and to listen to the call for " time." But the quarrel most have its limits?the time must be fixed, and the sponge must be thrown up if one or other of the combatant* cannot corns up to it; nor dees it seem a case in which any amount of ' judicious bottleholding" can prolong the figat. Now, at the present moment the North is leas able to go into the eontest than she was a month ago, She has suffered a defeat?she has lost moral? and material. Besides killed, wounded, and prisoners, cannon, arms, baggage, she has lost an i army of three months' men, who have marched away to their homes at the very moment the capital was in the greatest danger. Up to this feriod the reinforcements received do not ring up the federalists to the strength they had before the fight. No one can or will tell Vinw minv have straved awav and iron# off from their regiment* since they returned to the camps here; bat the actual L imber of men who have oome here are leee than those who here gone away home by fully 8.00ft rank and file. And the change has been by no means for the better. The three months' men at least had been mree months under arms. They were probably at least as martial and as ready to fight as the rest of her people. Just as they are moet required and likely not to be quite unserviceable, they retired to receive ill-deeerved and ridiculous ovations, as though they had bean glorious conquerors and patriots, instead of being broken and routed fugitives, whe marched off from Washington when it might b? expected the enemy were advancing against it. In their place eome levies who have not had even the three months' training, and who are not as well equipped, so far as 1 an sm, as thair predecessors, to face men who are alated with suceees and the prutige of the first battle gained, and to b? associated with regimen<s cowed, probablv, and o?rtainly in ion* ii standee demoralised bv defeat. t The artillerymen who cut tae trace* of their korM from caisson and carriage, at least know mor* about guns than th? men who will b? put to th? new field batteries, which government arc gettinc up as fast as they oan; and the muskets, of the b?st description, left on the field or taken, cannot b? replaced for a long time to oom? In fa?t, much of this army must be reorganised in fae? of an enemy. That enemy is either incompetent or artfci; it isqaite certain h? is not actuated by clemency or a generous pity. Engineers are hard at work strengthening the position of the south bank of the river; but forts do not constitute safety. Without stout hearts behind their lines and breastworks, abattis and redoubts avail nothing. It must be that the Confederates sre in Ik* muni nf trinimrt. or in a?tnal fore* to make an attaek which U ao obvious. if th?y deeire to show the North it ia not poasible to subdue them. The eorpa which went from Win*h*eter to Muwu under Johnston is pat bj the Federalist* at 44,009. Let iu take it at half that number Beauregard and Lae are aid to hare had 60,000 at Manama, including. I presume, the fosaes between il and Richmond. Diride that again. There wer* certainly 20.000 betwaan Monro*, the Court, and Richmond, of whoa 10,000oould be vpar*d; and on the w*at?rn aide of the capital of th* . Confederate States there wai available at laaat . another eorpa of 10,000,which eoald have b*en readiij strengthened bj 10,000 or 16,000 more from the South in eaa* of a supreme effort. Thexp seems no reason, not connected with transport, equipment, *r discipline, why th* Confederatae mould not hay* b**B able last wa*k to take the field with *,*0 maa, la two .? % eorpr, on* quit* strong enough to menace the | force on the right bank of the Potomac, and to hold it in check, or to prevent it going over to the other aide; the other to croaa into Maryland, which it now in part* only kept quiet by foroe, and to advance on Washington from the west and north. In the event of success, the poiitioal advantage* would be very great at noma and abroad, and there would be new base of operations gained close to the enemy's lines, while the advantages of holding the Po- < tomac and Chesapeake Bay would be muoh neutralised and finally destroyed. The Nary 1 Yard would fall into the enemy's hands. Font Washington would probably soon follow. Fortress Monroe would be condemned to greater isolation. Philadelphia itself would be in imminent danger, should the Confederates attempt greater aggression. But, for one, Gen. Beauregard willconsent to no plan of operations in whioh sucoess is not rendered as certain as may be by all possible precautions, and he might not faror a proposal which would lead to dividing an array into two parts, with a river between and an enemy on each side. Monroe and Hampton, which are the true bases of operations against Richmond, have been weakened to reinforce the arm} covering Washington and Harper's Forry, and yet I doubt if there are on the south bank of the Potomac at this moment 40,000 men all along the lines who oould move out and offer an enemy battle, leaving any adequate guards in the trenohes^and garrisons in the tete-dupont and works. The Confederates, as you were Informed from the South, hwe enlisted men to serve for the War, and take no others. The staple of their army will undergo no change, and as it grows older it ought to get better, nnless it be beaten. You will pardon me for referring to a remark in one of my previeus letters, that there might be fierce skirmishes, and even sanguinary engaxuients, between the two armies, but that these would be followed by no decisive results, owing to the want of cavalry. Strange to say, though the panic and very discreditable rout wat caused by alarms of, and might have been prevented by the presence of, cavalry, no steps are taken to remedy that Ereat deficiency, The volunteers who were at [anassas will never stand the man on horseback again, and I believe the Confederated are quite aware of their advantage, though they may have had to mourn the loss of many gentlemen who fell during the day. The northern papers are increasing the amount of butter in proportion as they decrease the losses of their loaves, and they do not appear to perceive that the smaller the latter were the less should be the layer of the former?for it is no credit to an army to lose its guns, abandon its positions, throw away its musketa, leave its wounded in 1 the hands of the enemy, and run some thirty or odd miles from frent of Centreville, not ? merely to Arlington, but to Washington, without any cause at all; for without loss there was no cause of retreat; and therefore no excuse for panic and rout. Again, they say there was only a portion of their army engaged The greater shame for those who were not-en- J gaged, to ran, then. Bat before the battle, when McDowell's force waa enumerated t?i < lerrorem at 50,000, it waa said fifteen regiments j had subsequently joined. Now it is averred , only 15,000, 18,000, or 20,000 were in aotion. < What on earth were the reat about? And I am }bliged to amy that Mr. Davis's statements are ^uite as startling; for, while he declares the enemy waa 35.000 strong, he aatonishes us by < aaserting that of all his host only 15,000 took , Krt in ut battle. As to loaaea, of eourse it is i yond anything but imagination to give an astimate Regiments reported to have been an- 1 oihilatec have turned up quite hale and hearty, | neat aa imported, on the day of marching i borne?and fond parents, wives, and relativea , will be apared many pangs and a great deal of j mourning. I think my estimate of killed and i wounded waa nearly correct. The prisoners J may amount to more than 900 or 1,000, but the Federalists have lost more heavily than 1 the totals under these heads would show, perhaps. It wou'd be rather ridiculous to call it either a hard-fought, a bloody, or a glorious field; but it was an important one; it was a moat trying one to the Federalists, who were oaaij iea and bard-worked, in a waterless ' country, on a July day, for 12 hours; they J were exposed to the demoralizing effects of 1 long-continued artillery fire. In spite of their j want of discipline and the very unaccountable rout, the Federalists at first showed alacrity, but after a time they beoame torpid and dim cult to handle. No one questions the general \ bravery of Americans, native or adopted, on either side; but defeat is rendered worse tban J ridiculous by attempts to turn it into a triumph. Let the unfortunate brave rest oon- i tent with the sympathy they deserve, and shun the ovations which are the due of the J oonqueror Praise and flattery oannot retake i a gun, nor save a standard, nor win a battle? even if it be frem vox populi in Broadway or Bowery. < The more closely the consequences of Manassas art investigated, the more serioas they mm to be. It must b? granted that the Confederates feel their looses more severely than the North does. Their colonels and officers are men of mark, and even of privates killed or wounded one sees notices implying that tbey belong to good families, and are well- J known people, xhe O's and Macs and Vons (few of the latter), the Coroorans. Camerons, ..j ??? > ? ? * uu uiuggvio, piiauuen, wuuuuca or <1110(2, re of less consequence to the social system of the North, than the Hamptons. Prestons, and Mannings are to the South. If Mr. Davis and a few of the leaders were to fall in battle there would be leu chance of the south continuing ] iu struggle with the same heart and confidence; but if all the cabinet were to go tomorrow from Washington the spirit of the Northern States would not be diminished one iota. From the South, as vet, we hare only a J few scattered details of the fight and of its | results, but it can be seen that there was no ery great exultation over the viotory. 1 One class of officers in the Federal army did their duty nobly?the surgeons remained on the field when all others were retiring or had left One 1s reported killed; six are prisoners in the bands of the enemy, engaged in attending the wounded on bath sides?an invaluable aid to the soanty medioal staff of the Confeder- 1 ates. Thar* is no reason to believe that the treatment of wounded or prisoners was what I it was reportad to have neen. There may < have been some isolated acts of atroeity in the heat of battle or pursuit, and it is only too likely that a building in which wounded men ware placed was set fire to by a shell, but it is only justioe to the'Confederata authortiM to say that they seem to bar* done all they could for thoea who fell into their hands. Much irritation has been created by tbefalaeatatementa circulated on thia aubjeot, and the aoldiera on guard over Confederate priaonera here wonld not permit them to receive aoma little luxuries which had bean ordered by sympathising inhabitants, on the ground that they did not deserve them after the treatment given by their friends to the Federalists And as I have us?d the word "sympathisers," let me add the expreasion of my belief that there is scarcely a department, high or low, of the publio service of the United States, in which there ia not "treaaon"?I mean the aiding and abetting the enemy by information and advice. It ia openly talked in aociety?ita work ia avidant on all aidee. I want into tha Sri rate department of the post-office the other aj, and found there a gentleman busily engaged in sorting letters at a desk. The laat time I met him was at dinner with the Commissioners of the Confederate States at Washington, and I was rather surprised to see him now in the sanetnm of the post-offioe, within a few feet of Mr. Blair, the sangrt azul of abolitionism Said ha, "lam just looking over the letters here to piek oat some for oar Southern friends, and I fofward them to their owners as I find them;" and if the exeellent and aeate gentleman did not also forward any little scrape of news ha oobld collect, 1 am in rm. Again, a series of maps prspared with great oare for th? use of General McDowell's staff are given out to be photographed, and arc ao scarce that superior officers cannot get them. Nevertheless, one is found in a tent of a Confederate officer, in the advance of Fairfax Court House, which must have been sent to him as soon as it was ready. It is also asserted that General Beauregard knew beforehand of McDowell's advance; but the Confederates left in such haste that much credenoe cannot be given to the statement that the enemr were fully informed of the fact any considerable length of time beforehand. The battle having been duly fought and lost, the Federalists are employing their minds to find out why it was fought at all. The convulsions into which the New York press has been thrown by the inquiry resemble those produced on a dead frog by the wire of Galvani. "Who cried 4 On to Richmond " Not I, 'pon my honor. It was shouted oat by some one in my house, but I don't know who. I never gave him authority. I won't shout anything any more " ''Who urged Gen. Scott to fight the battle, and never gave anybody any peace till he was ordered to do it f" "Nobody." "It was that other fellow." ' nease, air, it wasn't mo." "I never approved of it." " I'll never ssy a word to a soldier again." "Mr. President knows I didn't." It is really a moat curious study. I begin to think that the best possible instructors inay sometimes be in the wrong at this side of the Atlantic. The Tribune declares that Gen. Soott, being absolute master of the situation, is responsible for the battle. But the New York Times gives a statement of what took place before the battle at the General's table, whioh, therefore, is probably published with his sanction, as it is impossible to suppose a gentleman would print it without express permission, from which it would ?ertainly appear that the veteran commander was not, as I ninted. a free agent in the matter. It remains to be seen if the plans of General Scott can now be followed. The reaction along the Mississippi will be great, and Major Gen. Fremont, with great respect for his courage and enterprise, is not the man, I fear, to conduct large columns successfully. Missouri is anything but safe; Cairo is menaced, and ray friends at Memphis seem to be stirring from their rest under their General. General McClellan is doing his best to get things into order, and the outskirts of the city nnrl tho a t roofj ?* ?5-W4' iL >??va www uh? vvv9 ai c (jUiClCI al u ig U I, UUb IUCT6 is rough work with Zouaves and others in Alexandria?booses burnt, people shot, and such like sports of certain sorts of 'citizen soldiery.' They will soon be shouting ' monoy or blood,' if not kept in order and paid. These inen form a marked exception to the general behavior of many regiments. SUMMER RETREATS!
