If the reader will take a good map of Virginia he will find that this seuii-circular ehape of the Potomac continues down nearly to Aquia Creek, and a? far ap as Harper's Ferry, the greatest curve, however, being between Oecoqnan river (into which Ball Kan empties,) oine 15 or 1- miles btlow Washington, to Leesburg. about 25 above it. Within this space it approaches a half circle, on the outside of which is Washington, and on the inside, some what south of the center, and respectively 18, 25, and 32 railed oat, are Fairfax, Centreville. and Manama?. A line drawn from the mouth of the Ocaoqaan river to Leesburg .could nasi between Fairfax and Centreville, while Manassas is not much further from Leesburg than it is from Washington, and is still nearer the mouth of the Occoquan, aa well as Dumfries, another point still farther down. Thus with Manassas. Centreville and Fairfax as a base of operations, bodies of men can b? thrown out with about equal facility from any point from Oceoquan river to Leesburg, between which their main lines extend, or can b? concentrated as easily at any point within the semi-circle ; or the wings of the army can revolve to meet an attack from any portion of it aa far west as the Blue Ridge, and north to injunction with the Potomac. The face of the country, after leaving the Potomac bottoms, as you advance into the interior, is hillv, and covered for the moat part with a dense growth of either hard timber or old field pine*. These pines, which form a denje thicket, impenetrable by cavalry, mast not be confoanded with the pine belonging to the original forests, and which is setting very acarce in those parts. The old field pines have only sprang ap within the last seventy years, on fields worn out by cultivation, being entirely unknown before that period. While our Government was deficient in cavalry las summer, they afforded an excellent cover for oar infantry scouts, which ciused the rebel cavalry to give them a wide berth. When they had to be passed, a favorite plan was to send some farmer ahead on foot and in his shirt sleeves, so as not to excite (suspicion If no danger lurked in ambush, the cavalry followed. The New Orleans Picayune of the 14th oft Tril V Karl fi?Am O rfnaAial J vway wa ? V> ?v? 41 vui cpwiBl vuiiwpuuuoui at Manssas Junction, dated July 7th. We make the following extract, which will give a complete idea of the strength of the position : This place still continue* the headquarters of the army of the Potomac. There are many indications of an intended forward movement, the better to invite the enemy to an engagement. but the work of fortification still continues By nature, the position is one of the _a. i i i a * v * irungon mil coma nave oeen iouna in tna whole State. About half way between the astern spur of the Blue Ridge and the Potomac. bel->w Alexandria, it commands the whole country between so perfectly that there if scarcely a possibility of its being turned. The right- wing stretches fff towards the headwaters of the Ocerwjuan, through a wooded country, which is easily wade impassable by the felling of trees. The left is a rolling table land, easily commanded from the successive elevations, till you reach a country so rough and so rugged that it is a defense to itself. TL. l-~? .1 u-i- 2 xa< &cj iu iu? iuuio |kj3iiiuu, iu mci, is precisely that point whi'h General Beauregard chose for iu center, and which he has fortified o strongly that, in the opinion of military men, 5,000 men could there hold 20.000 at bay. The position, in fact, is fortified in part by Natnre, herself. It is a succession of hills, nearly equidistant from ea:h other, in front of which is a raviue so deep and so thickly wooded that it is only passable at two point*, and those through gorges which fifty men can defend against a whole army, it wii at one of tae?e point* ttut tue Washington Artillery ware at firat encamped, and though only hnlf the battalion wa* then there, and we had only one company of infantry to support ua, wo alept u soundly under the protection of our guns as if we had been in ? fort of the amplest dimension*. Of the fortifications superadded here by Qen. Beauregard to thoae of nature, it is. of course, no* proper for me to speak. The general reader, in fact, will have a sufficiently precise idea of them by conceiving a line of fort* some two miles in extent, zigzag In forai, with angles, salient*, bastions, casemates, and everything that properly belongs to works of this kind. Tk. --J -J 1 ui AUO swcu^iu IUU auTflUiag^ Ul mis pOSIUUD t Manassas are very much increased by the fact that 14 mile* farther on is a position of similar formation, while the oouatry between is admirably adapted to the subsistence and ntrenohment of troeps, in numbers as large as they ean easily be macu.-uvred on the real battle-field. Water is good and abundant; forage such as is everywhere found in the rich farmer districts of Virginia, and communication with all parts of the country easy. Here, overlooking an extensive plain, watered by mountain streams which ultimately find their way to the Potomac, and divided into verdant fields of wheat and oats and corn. pastors and meadow, are the headquarter* of the advanced force* of the army of the Potomac. Wa* th* Merrimac Ixjcred??A.B. Smith' rilot on board the Camberland at the time of her battle with the Merrimac, ha* furnished a statement to the New York World, from whioh we quote the following : The Monitor fired one hundred and seventyeight-pound east-iron ahot. The wrought iron shot were not used. because tbeir great weight and peculiar construction render the zuns much more liable to barat The Merrimac fired about forty shots on the Monitor, which replied aa rapidly u possible; but, ao far aa it is known, neither Teasel ia damaged. Those on board the Monitor say the balls rattled and rang upon both Teasel*, and seemed to bound on harmless. The Merrimae ia probably not injured, at least mora thin the starting of a plate or so of her iron covering; and her machinery being ninjored, the is probably lit to come oat gain. It is inpossible to keen the Merrimac from coming out. She can sail three knots an hear faster than the Monitor. From her erolotions I should judge she can go at the rate of eight or nine knots per hour. It is impossible to board the Merrimac. Should she come out Tin, she will be obliged to passwithin range the.Union run at th? Rin Rani, and > ?K<>? from it might, perhaps, crush her sides; bat it i* very difficult to mamge ao heary a piece of artillery, and the Union gun in all probability might be fired fifty times without touching her. I do not think the Merrimac is calculated to carry much coal, and that might have been a reason for her retiring from the contest. The Monitor perhaps might follow up the rebel ataamers and disable them, but if she gets among the rebel batteries a heavy fire might be concentrated on her from different points, aad she be thus injured. or possibly she might be grappled to ana towed ashore. These and other reasons may suffice to show why the Menitor did not follow among the batteries of Craoey Island aud Norfolk. Have the tea! Ashes.

As many of oar readers wish to know who Mr. Ericsson (the inventor of the iron-clad battery Monitor, which did such efficient service at the recent naval engagement in Hampton Roads) is, we hare compiled the following abort biographical sketch of that distinguished person. John Ericsson was born in 1803, in the province of Vermeland, among the iron mountains of Sweden. His father being en iu uicvuniMcai pursuit, iuc ?uu uarijr evinced a remarkable taste for the same occupation, and before he was ten years of ago he constructed several mcchanioal contrivances which would have been creditable to older heads. In 1814 he was appointed to a cadetship in tho corps of engineers in the Swedish army, and while in that position was several times made supervisor of important trusts, although several officers outranked him both in age and position. In 1826 he visited England, and nrrw>*#?)A^ fn AAnatrnnt nnmK*v r>f n^ar *nm'naa f M V V UD % A WW W U U AM WVt W? ?J\? TT ??^>UVW of hia own invention. which met with wonderful success. In the fall of 1329, the Liverpool and Manchester Railway having offered a prise for the best locomotive engine, to be tested on their road, Mr. Ericsson constructed the Novelty steam carriage, which darted al?H?g the track ?it the rate of fifty miles an hour, to the unbounded admiration and applause of the spectators. He afterwards constructed several steam fire engines, which proved to be successful inventions. He was the first to apply to marine engines centrifugal blowers.using anthracite coal. Mi Ericsson emigrated to this country in 1839, nuu mr uifi grcui Bcamveuiuui wn iuc uuiiuing of tbo U. S. steam frigate Piinceton, the first vessel that Btcam wag ever introduced into with the works below the water line. His success was so remarkable that the French Government engaged him to plan the French frigate Pomone, of 50 guns, which also proved a success He next undertook the planning and invention of the steamer Ericsson, and although it did not meet the expectations of the buildor, it was a success. He next determined to construct a battery which would be useful in naval warfare. On the 3th of October he signed the contract f r the construction of the Monitor, and on the Ol.i T\ ? 1 i * * ? * *? oi?i oi i/ecemoer, oeing a periou oi iwo months and eight days, the steain machinery and propeller were put into operation, and on the one hundred and first working day she waa launched. The rest of the history of the Monitor is so well known to oar readers that its recapitulation here would be unnecessary. A subscription paper is now in circulation among mo merchants oi >ew York, intended as a suitable testimonial to Capt. Ericsson fur bis publio services. We learn that handsome sums have been subscribed. Sinif of tbr Great Battlti ?l the World. At the battle of Areola the Auitrians lost in killed and wounded 18,000 men; French WOO.
