Manassas is Owrt?The March Towards that Rebel Stronghold?Appearance oj Ctntrenille and Bull Run fieldi? The Rebel Documents?Sketch of General Sumner, etc, The world renowned and long dreaded Manassas is very quiet now, as far as rebcldom is concerned. The terrors ?f masked batteries and rebel guns bursting up m us at very step no longer make us falter. "Manassas is ours!" But without further preface it will be my duly to chronicle lbs advance of the eorps with which I am connected, end I will try to givo a concise statement of eyents from the tlmo wo started until the present moment of writing. The active preparations for the advance into Virginia, which had been going on in this division for nearly two eeeement of tbe march of the grand army of the Union toward the Taunted Quebec of the South. On Sumlaj night Uon Sumner issued orders Tor the troop* to bold themselves in read 1 new for hi* signal to move. At thro < o'clock on Monday morning tbe long expected ant anxiously awaited note was sounded from the (ienerai'i headquarters, and in an instant tbe deathlike silence 01 'the camps was broken by tbe sounds of busy prepare Von, which were soon completed. By six o'clock th< troops were ready, and the column moyed off in goot order. The new roods wore rendered almost impassable bj the heavy rain, which lasted nearly all day, and it was a terrible ordeal for the men to go through with. Gradual!} the troops bogan to lag, and many ftU behind, beinj unable from exhaustion to keep up to tbe beavy task be Ksrethem. It was indeed tremendous work; but then was no alternative short of reaching the place indicate! in the order of the day, and through almost superhumai exertions all the men were comfortably bivouacked be fbre night. Tho march afforded nothing in the way u: Incidents. Tneaday morning, at daybreak, tbe call was sounded and tbe troops began the preparations for tho second day's marcn. About teu o'clock tbe move took place, yhe day opened iu beauty, and tbe terrible fatigue oi yesterday was soon forgotten in the glories or to-day. The division still kept the by-roads, converging to the line of the Orange and Alexandria Railroad, and reached Songster s station about three o'clock. A small mill tream ren here, and it seemed as if nature herself bad prepared the locality for a pleasant camping ground. A brood slope extending up from tbe run a long distance, and flanked by beautiful bins c.owneu with pines, gnobled the division to halt and encamp in line of bat ie At Sangster'sstation tho rebels, after having burned the railroad bridge across tbe Aecotinok, commenced kklaa nn llul rn,l< -Vi a... W.... ttt slaeperfi in ezceilont condition for the rails whenever Ike fovornmont shall see lit to put tbera down. The 'faile have only boon removed on the route from HangsCar'e otation up to Union Mi!!*. Tbo bridges remain in(Mt,and I have no ooubt tbe road to Manissa? will soon bo put in complete running order. At this point tbo rebel approaches to Mouasgaa com ^eaca on tbe line of tbe rail row), and too ptoce afccut ight mlleo eoeib from the scene of the rt(mutter of July teat. The ran and tbe railroad hero pass throdgh a arrow gorge, end to tli# right und left 'command tteuMM. The hrowg of tbe bills are crowned with vd'wnitif bnltletiienw, whole occuji., Ion is gene,rail Toad sleepers with which tbey wore fn ed innk ?g m'il excellent camp fires for our brave soldiers. Upon a kill to Uia west of tba mill reams to been tl?< prim 41! camp of tbo enemy for a period ur to about CUrtetuntS, the appearance of the ground givine ovi.loaee of Wen by probably four regiment*. Tho on'y apj.i vanca of a recently occupied camp in thU vicinity is to bo nw about a mile from tbe mill, where Colonel Robert ou's regiment of cavalry was station.d At that place cur treops found the cirap fires still smoking, and a con -uierabte quantity of corn, shorts and other fodder for horses, which caino very acceptable in tbe deity of our supply train. It has bean painful to witness tba desolation which estate on this aide of Alexandria. All tbe way to this point the exception he been to see au inhabited dwelling Ob all si lee ran bo aaen fenceless domains aud ten antlesa, untenable dwellings. Ruin marks Virginia's felly, and her pauishment Is Indeed grievous even at the hands of tbeee w bo came as professing friends. The inhabitants at Union Wills wbo hod reanainu I bailed the efg>roach of the Union army with |ey. and expressed, teeequalihed terms,their delight that the oppressors have dejarted. A sad casualty occurred to day. Cbrkttopher Campbell, drumuier boy in Company F Sixty ninth reglmont, and pTTVSle DanieUternian, of the same company, wero acci> dentally shot in Us; woods, and A is feared that the fur dlr Is fatally Injured. After getting oyer tbe fatigues of our march I started en an examination tour, during which I maJa a thorough Inspection ofCeutreville, Bull run, the plains aud June%M of Matrnnms. I am very much fatigued. F.very'buig m uicd siren a naw aoa euuacn turn. 1 also eocMt yta a few 1<wm from rebel gvuurul*.

It would beye been merely a question or superiority of cannon and aim. At and aawuad the battle Oekl of Bull run there are no signs of nwv fortifications whatever. All the houses about ths Meid are pierced with balls. The stench,eren now, from Se'rM oerpees ef men and hot sea Is very offensive, blear the spring in the peach orchard, where tba jevereal antral look place, and but a short die lance from the fceaae, or rrtlher ruins af It, in which Mrs. Henry was MUsd, lie several corpses of ("men soldiers, sll unbu tad. The water running over ibeta, or something else, has preserved the IndtstlDct lines of Hie human form. Band hodtee sf horses aro abundant all about. 1 counted ae lass than 300. A mutilated marble column marks ths pet where Bartow, ol Uour?u?, (ell, with the inscription, ?1Wy have killed me, beys, but nsver give up the tight." The iehl has since bees visited by hundreds of rebels, She baser portion of whom have invariably carried home srlth thetn either ihe skull of a I'niou soldiar, or rings, aaaulets, he., made of their hones. The rebels bavs taken the rihe and mada pipe stems ef them, Ac.,and nasd tkulia fur soup iiishns. At Manassas J unci ion the dastrui tli.n of property was much gieater. No less than three hundred barrels of flour weie store In. The freund was strewn with meals ef all descriptions, to father with earn, rice, dried apples, crackers, mediators, tents, broken trunk*, letters, cards, cartridge heaea, botes of ammunition, cluthinc, bluakets, and tmrythtng |?rlaming to a well supplied camp. His do traction of ears, wagons, iron work, slows, nails, on ffnea, he, was frarful.
