Front above cut it will be seen thnt Colonel Miles' (Fifth) division, consisting or tho First brigoilo, in command of Colonel liletiker, and the Second, commanded by Colonel Davits, occupied the advanced position on the left, wlil'e Colonel Kcyes had the out|K?t on the extreme right. In leaviug Centrevllle, and at the heights, part of Rlon ker's brigade, the Eighth and Twenty-ninth regiments New York Volunteers, were stationed. fin tlie left Captain BooIcwikhI, of tho Twenty-ninth regiment, with voluutoei artillery tnanniug the battery of tho Eighth Now York Slate Militia. Tidhull's (formerly Harry's) battery, on the left of the lust named, supported by tho Garibaldi Guard and the Twenty -seventh Pennsylvania regiment. Colonel Davles' brigade, indicated by four half black marks in a straight liue, supported Green's battery. Hunt's and Edwards'butteries were stationed ut illaclt burn's ford, and supported by Colonel Hicliurdstm's division. Near the stone bridge Tyier s division was drawn up, supporting Ayres' and Cariis'e's batteries, and across Cub run K?yes' division, flanked on the right by Howard. Further in advance of tho right Sherman'8 division oo CU)>ted tho line; on his left. at Hull run, General Sclicuck wag |>o?ted with his tlivis.on. Tlio double contrc line indicates the Warrcnton roail. on which, anil on tho left of it, tho heavy black lines Indicate tho enemy's position. General Boauregurd's headquarters nro show n on the map on the other side of Bull run, and tin light lines show where the cnomy's reinforcement arrived from Winchester, via Now Market. From this it will be seen that Griffin's bat tery was bearing the brunt of the battle, from the enemy's guns in position at Groveton and their flying artillery This battery hud the support of Burnside's brigade, T'nited States marines, and Colonel Porter's divi ion. On the right of Sudlev's Springs Franklin's division supported Bli kett'.s battery, which was stationed on the "Manassas Gup Railroad, partially graded and abandoned.' Still further to the right Arnold's battery played havoc On the enemy, aud hud as support Colonel Wilcox's brigade, whose position is mdicuted by being on the road to Guin Spring. Colonel Howard < ccupied a position about a mile beyond the stone bridge, on the right of Keyc division. According to Hi" above plan, Ibn reader will at once see What Important positions were held by the various commanders. General McDowell In his official rejiort say. 'that thecor)is (liis column) wore brought over Hull run in the manner proposed and put Into net ion ns before urriuigocl. and ty> to late in the uftnruoou (of the 21hI) every move montorderod was carrying us succecssfully totheobjeet v, had proposed before starting?that of getting to the railroad leading from Manassas to the Valley of Virgiuia, and going on it far enough to break up and destroy the coniniunica tion and interviews between the forees under Beauregard and those under Johnston. And could wo have fought a day or a few hours sooner, there is everything to s-lio >\ how we could have continued successful, even against the odds with which we contended.'' Especially Colonel Miles' division occupied a most important point, as well us Richardson's, who had the extreme left. However, the in trenchuicnt of Centrevillo was a imst foruiibnble and well-timed movement, which proved its efllacncy at the retreat, Colonel Miles having placed his forces iu order of defence, giving the command over to Colonel Blenker, Actiug Brigadier General, until Colonel Richardson broke up tils plans with hi.Interfcrencc. f rom the map it w ill be seen that the cue my's foroo3 were nearer lo Centreville than any other place indicate 1 in tliu illustration, and bail he once gained the heights at Contrevilie our army would have been annihilated or forced to surrender unconditionally However, the well ranged shots of Major Iltint and Captain Kdwardg, from their Parrot guns, on th" extreni" left, at Blackburn's ford, and of Lieutenant Green's rifled Parrott's, further to the right, deterred the enemy from advancing on our left, and found it extra hazardous to sti tempt a flank movement in that direction. As stated abovo, the enemy's reinforcements under Johnston, took good care to keep out of range of the last named batteries, and the eutire forces finally concen trated at and about Sudley'g Spring*. The country on the other side of Bull run is nothing but woodland, und the only way our commanders could notice ibe advance of the enemy was by the immense clouds of dust rai. d by the cavalry. Whon tlio case shots fell among them the same dust clouds could plainly he seen receding; and after twelve o'clock M. the throe Inst named batteries, by ordor of Colonel Miles, ceased firing. Beyond a littlo sklrwishing, nothing of uny consequence was done by thai portion of our army. Sometime after four o'clock this column was ordorc I to take up a position at Centreville, to cover the retreat, whilo Blenker's brigade was ordered forward as a reinforcement, and to rally the panic stricken troops. This brigade fired the lust shot at the pursuing cavalry. None of the lines in our map eau indicate the road taken by the troops iu their retreat. Tho Warrenton road being blocked up with vehicles, from a btiggy4o a four hors. army wagon. the old Braddock road (indicated on lb? map by tho line on which Howard's column is stationed) bodges, fluids and meadows were lined with the fugitives' REPORT OF THE SUBSISTENCE DEPARTMENT. Aruxuton, Va., August 2,1861. Captaix?For information of tho general commanding the dojiartment I bare the honor to submit the following report in reference to the subsistence of the army under bis command during its recent operations in front:?. On the 10th ultimo the commanders of divisions were directed to Roe that ail the troons of their resneetive mn monds have cooked and in their haversacks by three P. M. next day three days' rations; and orders were given that Ave days' additional subsistence should be loaded into wagon trains on the day of march, and follow the army on the day succeeding, and that a specified number of beer cattle should be driven forward with each train. Owing to the necessary number of wagons not boing rurnksho<l in season, to uninstructed and many worthless teamsters and green teams, and to gome of the roads being bad, only one of the trains?that in charge of First Lieutenant J. V. Hawkins, Second infantry, A. A. C. S.? was able to overtake the army on the morning of the 18th. It, with ninety head of beef catle, by travelling all the previous night, arrived at Fairfnx Court House on the morning stated, before the army,had taken up its mureh. During the morning, while the army was moving for. ward to Centrcville, it was thought tho othor subsistence trains, in charge of First Lieutenants O. Bell, First artil lory; James Curtis, Fifteenth infantry, intended for Colonel Heintxolmon's and (ieneral Tyler's divisions, respectively, would not roach the army in season, and I was directed to distribute the subsistence in the train pre sent as equally as possible among the several divisiona. Fourteen wagons, containing about 17,000 rations were sent In charge of Lieutenant Hawkins to the Fifth division, the remaining wagons were directed to imincdiately proceod toOntreville, and I had made the best arrange mouts in my power to distributo the provisions they contained among tho othor three divisions. Shortly after our arrival at Centrevlllo, I was officially informed ihnl the train, with sixty-fivo head of beef cuttle, in charge of Lieutenant Curtis, was in the vicinity, and the train, with seventy head of boef cattle, In charge of Lieutenant llell, was at Fairfax Court House, I then directed the first of these trains to come forward to Contrevillo and encamp for the night, and the second to come forward with as little dehty as iswsible, and mvsclf conducted the remaining wagons of Lieutenant Hawkins' train, and turned them over to tlio ofllccr (Lieutenant Meroill), directed by General Tyler to receive and distri ouie to tuc t irsi division me suosisiencc stores they con tainod. 1 endeavored to distribute the subsistence stores equal ly among the several divisions, according to the strength of each. but, In consequence of the necessity of breaking up the train in charge of Lieutenant Hawkins, which was intended for the divisions of Colonels Miles and Hunter, and the late arrivals of the others, difficulties arose, aud 1 may not have succeeded in iny object. Making due allowance for all losses on the march, according to the reports of the officers conducting the trains, and my own observation, at least (160,000) one hundred and sixty thousand complete rations were received by the nrny at and in the vicinity of Cent rev tile?sufficient for its subsistence for five days. In a circular from Department Headquarters, dated at Centreville, July 20,1861, commanders of divisions were directed to give the necessary orders that an equal distribution of the subsistence stores on hand might be made Immediately to the different companies in their respective commands, so that they should be provided with the Same number of days' subsistence, and that the same bo cooked and put into the haversacks of the men, nnd they were informod that the subsistence stores there in possession of each division with the fresh beef that could be drawn from the Chief Commissary, must lest to include the 23d instant. The three days subsistence it was directed the troops Should have In their haversacks by three }'. M.. on the 16th of July, should liavo lasted them to the afternoon of the 191b. "After the distribution made in compliance with the circulars above referred to, I know of scleral iDBtancs in which subsistence stores remained in possession of Division and Brigade Commissaries, and of others in which provisions were left on the ground of the encampments on the morning of the 21st of July.

There is great destitution at the South of many of tho articles of subsistence and clothing: butter .10 routs per pound; coffee, spices and many articles of groceries hardly to be had at any price; cotton and olher cloths Relllng at two or thre^ tim-s the usual prices. Corn is very scarce and high, but the new crops were ggnd and would soon be ready for harvest.
