OORRXSrOKDENCB WITH TUB REBEL STATES CUT OFF. An written correspondence carried by express com yauiva hi iuii ntouuu dihh'bj w hi uv m uih o i'l ihu * uiieu important decision respecting enlistments. The com of E. A. Stevens, a private in the First Minno ota regiment, applying for a discharge from service, as a test case, was argued yesterday beforo Justice Wayne, of the Supreme Court. Mr. Stevens petitioned for Jds dis. charge, on the ground that, having engaged to serve only three months, which bavo already expired, he i8 entitled to an honorablo discharge, wbilo the government , on the other hand, alleges that he had enisited for the period of three years. The case elicits great intorest, as it will settle the questions that have been made the basis of nearly all the Insubordination that baa existed hi our army. The Court dismissed the petition to-day. His opinion is not yet written. The question of the terms of enlistment, which has been the source of the recent disturbances in several ?f the regiments, has been judicially and finally nettled. The government right to bold the oldlers, and tho fallacy of the pretences, originated by mischief makers, is effectually expressed by the decision of Associate Justice Wayne, who has made I ue tvuuwuig orucr, oauifiy" liiat iuy win ui rwvcu corpus ml tub judtciendum awarded by me on a prior day, *a wit, on the 10th instant, upon the application of Edward A. Stevens, the petitioner aforesaid, be and the same Is hereby discharged, and that the aforesaid Edward A. Sloven bo, and ho is horoby remtttod to his military *nty in the First Minnesota regiment, commanded by Colonel Willis, a German, and that until then he remain ta the custody of the United States Marshal for this District."

General McClellan, and the members of the scientific ?orps of his staff, crossed the Long Bridge, en route for the Virginia side of the l otomac, at nine o'clock this morning, escorted by a detachment of United States dragoons. He proceeded to a largo field between Forts Runyan And Albany, where Ge neral Richardson's brigade, consisting of New York, Massachusetts and Wisconsin troop*, in all several thoiisaud, wre drawn up in line preparatory for inspection and review. The line of troops was nearly one-half a mile in extont, and the glistening Briskets and the neat appearance of the men formed ? pleasing contrast. Just as Gen. Mcfleltan was about to review the troops, a solitary carriage containing President Uticolu and Secretary Seward, unattended by any guard r escort, drove on to the field, and to that point or it opposite iho centre of tho lino of troops where Geti. Mode l an ii.id previously posted himself. After tho usual preparatory formula for review?opening ranks, arms pr sented, officers to the front?was gone through with, the Frcsideut's carriage, in which was his Excel-' lency, was driven to the right of tho ilia's of troops.

As General McClellan rode down the Hue of troops ho stopped frequ-nt'y to examine Hi wins an equipments of the 'troops, and gave numorim. peremptory orders to have certain deficiencies remedied' Th" revi wing party then returned to an eligible position outh' field, wb n the whole brigade passed in review in column by companies. As each company pussed the To viewers, the commanding ufllceia s..luted properly. The company distances were very well preserved, an l they gave every indication of good pi oficlency in their 4ul|. s. After the reviety the troops were drilled in several ma amuvrcs?in ovoiutions of the lino, closing on masse, do ploying on battalions, forming echelon of squares, to. At this conjuncture, it being uLo.'.t eleven o'clock A. V., the Prosldent slighted from his carriage, and mounted dragoon's horse. Tho S.y:retary of State returned to the <ity,wbllo Gen.

A telegraphic report of tho threatened entente at Islington, Kentucky, given upon the authority of tho Louisville Courier, a secession origin, gives to JohnC. liaeckinridge the credit of having prevented a collision between tho Union men and disunionists there, upon the arrival of tho arms intended for tho Union Volunteers. From gentlemen just arrived here, who were witnesses of the wholo proceeding, it is loarncd that Mr. Breckinridge was tho Instigator of a riot, and no1 the pacificator. It appears that the arms had origina l? b -n forwarded from Cincinatti direct to 1 invton via the Cevimrlon and Lcxineton Railroad. Lu* on uccouut or llie threats or the secessionists were sent back to Cincinnati, and subsequently forwarded by way of Louisville. A Union force of 20b eavalry and 600 in* fantry were sent in to protect them. The cavalry aluno entered Lovington. Uiion their arrival John C. lireckiuridge cane out of the principal hotel, and exclaimed, in an exctted m tnnor, " What arc these damned scoundrels doing in town? If I had fifty men to bock lne * would drivo Hum out In twenty minutes." Offers of that number of HI-"? - an i moro were immediately made. Tho signal was given for the asteublyof the State (rebel) Cuuril, nnil immediately afterwards tho Home Unipa Uuard was summoned. Jjoth were under arms, and a collision was prevented oniy by lbs most, energetic eilbris of a number of prominent citizen.;. Upon Mr. Breckinridge alono rests the blame of all the excitoinont, nearly resulting in the inauguration of.civil war in the heart of Kentucky, and the credit of arresting lire riot is duo exclusively to others. GENERAL LANDER. Tho Union men of Western Virginia and lias tern Tonne; see, through Senators Carlisle and Andrew Johnson, uiive preferred urgent requests that Brigadier Geneial inuder shall he detailed to serve in that section of tho country, but lie will bo retained by the military authorities for ton or twelve days for important service here. If he could bo allowed to pick his own men, and from a brigade, and let them be lot loose in Virginia, Uio enemy would be panic stricken, and run faster than the Palrutes Indians ever did. THE REBELS FIGHTING AMONG THEMSELVES. It is said that a eolliBion n c 'Utly occurred at Norfolk between an Alabama regiment and a Virginia regiment, growing out or taunts of the former, impugning the courage of the latter. &>me live or six were killed.

RE H r, AUGUST 25, 1861. .L RUN BATTLE 1 Run, Stone Bridge a bate JP*^ %^n . k.X?? THE BATTLE OF MANASSAS PLAIN ACCORDING TO REBEL AUTHORITY. [From tho Xaehvillo (Tens.) Patriot, August 20.1 On Sunday, tho 21st day of July, 1861, tliis great untllo was fought, and a great victory won by the Confederate troops. Heaven smiled on our'armB. and tho God of battles crowned our banners with laurels of glory. Genera! Johnston had arrived tho preceding day with about half of the force be had detailed from Winchester, and was the senior officer In command. Ho magnanimously iusisted, however, that General Beauregard's previous plan should be carried out, and he was guided entirely by tho judgment and superior local knowledge of (he latter. While, therefore, General Johnston was nominally in command, Beauregard was really the officer and hero of tho day. At half-past six In the morning tho enemy spencd Ore from a battery planted on a hill beyond Bull run, and nearly opt*,site tho centre of our lines. The battery was intoudod merely to "beat the bush," and to occupy our attention, while he moved a heavy column towards tho Stone Bridge, over the same crock, upon our left. At ton

o'clock, another battery whs pushed for word, and opened a Ore a short distance to the left of the uthcr, and near the road leading north to Cculrevtlle. This was a battery of rifled guns, aud tho object of Its Ore was the same as that of tho other. They fired promiscuously Into tho woods an3 gorges "n '.hi?, the southern, side of Bull run, seeking to create the Imprtl.rlf'P thereby that our centre would be attacked, and thus prevent us irutn sending reinforcements to our left, wlicre the real attack was to bo made. Beauregard was not deceived by the manceuvre. K might not be amiss to say that Bull run, or creek, la north of this place, nnd runs nearly due east, curving aroi n I the Juu lion, the nearest part of which is about three and a half mil-s. The Stone bridge is eomo seven miles distant, in a northwesterly diroetJon, upon which our left wing rested. Mllehel's ford is directly north, and distant four miles, by the read leading to Centrcville, which ir seven miles from tho Junction. On our right is (j u ion Mill-, mi the same stream, where the Alexandria nnd Manassas intl-nad crosses Hie run, und diFtnnt four miles. I'rueC' ding fimn Fairfax Court House, by Ceuti eville, to Stone Bridge, tho lii my passed in front of our entire hue, but at a distance ranging fr< m Ave to two mil< s. At nine o'clock ovir left under Brigadier Generals Evans, Jackson and Cooke, and Colonel Bartow, with the flccrgiu brigade, composed of the Seventh and Elgb h regiments, una necn put in motion, ana was advancing hjioii the out my wltli a force of ubout 15.000, while tint enemy itself was advancing upon nur loft Willi a compact column or at least 30,000. These approaching columns oi c 'iinlero'l > ftch other at cloven o'clei k. Meanwhile, tho two butteries in front kept up their (iru upon tho wooded hills where they supposed our centre Jay. At a quarter past twelve, Johnston and Beauregard galo|e.u rapidly forward in tho direction of Stone Bridge, where the ball bud'now fully opened. Tho artidery we.c the llrpt to ojieu lire, precisely at eleven o'c oek. liy lia.f-past eleven the Infantry had engaped , and there it was that the bnttlo b gan to rape. The dusky diimns w hich had thus far marked the up proacli of the two ai mies now mingled with groat clouds of'smoke, us it rose from the Hashing guns below, and tho two sin it up together lik'' a huge pyramid of l ol and bloc. Tbe shock was as tremendous as were tho odds between tho two forces. Willi what anxious hearts was watched that pyramid of smoko and dust! When it tuovi d to the ri,;nt we. knew the enemy were giving way: an i wlien it moved to the left wo knew that our frillies wore i'ec*nlli.i/. Twice tlio ov/'omiil.w ramrvl in U,.. i l, hi and as often returned. At lust, about two o'clock, it b pun t<> move slowly to the l"ft, and thus continued to tuovo for two mortal hours. The enemy was seeking to turn our left Hank, and to reach the railroad loddtfighence in th direction di Winchester. To do this he extended his linos, which lie was enabled to do by reason ot his great numbers. Tins was uuf? rtunatc for us, as It required a cor repp- uduig extension of our own lines, to prevent his cxtri me right Irom outflanking us?a movement on our l?irl which wakened the force of our resistance along the whoio lino el battle, which f.na ly extended over a space of twomtics. It also rendered it the moio difficult to bring u)i relniVn cen.enta, as tho further the enemy oxteuoed his* right the greater tho distance our reserve fore, s h id to travel to counteract the movement. 'Illis eflbrl to ti rn our tlank was pressed with great determination fi r flvo long, weary hours, during which lie tide of battle - lilied and flowed along the entire line, with alternate fort ni-s. The enemy's column oont n ed to stretch away to tlic left, like a In ge anaconda, seeking to envelope us in its mighty folds and crush us to death, and at one time it really looked as if he wo ld succeed. The moment he discovered the enemy 's order of baitle, Gen. Beauregard, it is said, despatched orders to Gen. Kwell, on our extreme right, to move forwar. and turn liis left or roar. At the tame time he ordered Geiv rats Jones. Igingstroet and lloiiham, occupying the centre of our lines, to c up rate In this movement, but not t move until Gen. kwii bad made the attack. The order to Gen. Kwill unl'orti naleiy miscarried. 'lhe othms wore delivered; b t as the movements of tho centre wru to lie regulated entirely by thuso tin the rignt, nothing was done at all. Had Hie orders to Gen. Kwell been re ueived and carried out, and our entire force brought upon the tlcld, we should have destroyed the enemy V army it most literally. At tasked In the front, on the lie. a and m the r.ur, ho could not pofKibly have escaped, except ut tho loss of thousands of prisoners and all his batteries, while the Held would have been strewn with bin dead. K siding that his orders had In some way fulled to bo executed. General Beauregard at lust ordciod* up a [wrtlou ot' the lerr. s which were Intended to co-opersle with General Kwell. It was late, however, before ihe-ereinforc nn-nts cum up. Only one brigade reathed the th l< before the battle ?ru won. This wits led by G'nerolK. K.

At this point thu cavalry wore ordered upon the pursuit. The rotreut now became a porfodt routo, and It is reported tliat the flying legions rushed past Contrevtlle in the direction Of Fairfax, as if the enrth had been opening behind them. It was when General Beauregard led the final charge that his horse wus killed by a shell. MAYOR BERRET EN ROUTE TO FORT LAFAYETTE AS A PRISONER. Baltihors, August 24,1S61.

AN ENGLISHWOMAN'S IMPRESSIONS OP THE I REBEL STATES. One of oar reporter* lis* h*<l *n interview with an English lady, who ha* toceutly arrlvod hero from Charleston, after a sojourn of several iuohUmi in that delectable city. What She saw and hoard while there?and, as she moved in the best eocloty, her opportunities woro very groat? has evidently Impressed her with the conviction that the people of the South are In earnest In thoir Insane revolt' i uo iuai mey win a lop at u o saerince to carry It to a suo cesaful issue. It haa not convinced her, tv>wover,or th* beauty and desirableness of the peculiar social syrt-un of the South for the perpetuation of which tho rebellion wua entered .on, and she loses no opportunity, and probably lost none, while In Charleston?free spoken English woman aa sho Is?of denouncing some of Its atrocious features. It Is needless to repeat tho clroumatances which shocked bor Christian and refined Feasibilities In connection with the institution, but she sums up all by paying that "Uncle Tom's Cabin" Is but a very mixlerate description of tho system. With this, howevor, wo havo nothing to do. In regard to the war sho believes that the leaders and tho people are alike In earnest, and she adds that there exists the moet malignant, fiendish hatred against the people of tho North. Sho Instances the rauio of ono young specimen of tho chivalry, who had some pretensions to piety, aud was a church member, with whom she remonstrated in regard to his vile, sinful language, who salil that if his mother was a Northerner ho would fool delight in wading In her blood. Aaolhor of the samo stamp, who was In tho battlo Of Bull rim?a Lieutenant in one of tho South Carolina icgi. ments?shocked her by describing how, seeing a Union soldier slightly wounded, ho plunged his sword once iwivu, IUIUC tuuvB IUIU ino UIWIJT, mm iiuw H U>I I>;IIIV:u him to hoc the blood follow the blado like blubber. She shook luT heeil incredulously wlion Informod by our re. porter that the statements about barbarity to the wouuded bad been afterwards contradicted, tibo has cause to belle vo that the first state mints wero wel] founded, although of course site holds that all the educated offlcors of tho rebel army were guiltless of ordering or permitting such atrocities. The system under which Southern children are raised Is sufficient, In ber mind, to account for the commission of tho foulest offences against humanity. She admires the leaders ef tho rebellion, If for nothing else, at least for their energy of character and tho acttvr ty in seeing that their plans are carried out. Shu says that several days before the battle of Hull run a despatch wag received in Charleston from Jeff. Davis, urging the imme. diate forwarding of all the men and supplies Upit could bo procured, and indicating the plan nnd time or%m battle. Since then, too, bo has been Inciting to the same exhaust, ivo process. So thoroughly have bis wishes been attended vi u.tu mere uro uu tuogrr any uwio uuuieu inrii ui uv be found in that city, and she presumes it is much the , samo m tiie rural dlBlricts. There am a few hundred men garrisoning the forte, but beyond these there are no troops and no clllzei.I to deend the city from attack. Why is not Charleston, ar<j why are not New Orleans, Mobile, Savannah, and all the other ports of the rebel Btates attacked, seized and held by the national forces f That Is a question which naturally suggest* Itself to all inquiring minds, and to which no satisfactory answer has yot been given. If the na_ tlenal government only showed half ibe energy of the rebels there would net bo so much cause for boasting at the .South or for gloom at tho North. It was the eontros' in that respect which struck this lady with astonishment, and her frionds in this city aro, of course, unable to account for it. It is not of men alone that the Southern States aro be. lng drained. All the commiS'nriat for the rebel army It voluntarily supplied from tl s p autat.o >S, and the men . supply, for the most part, their own clothing. There is said to las no lack of provisions at Charleston nor do unusually hi| h prices prevail there. Cutter Is one of the things tliat is. ol to bo bad, for according to the plant-d I >n economy no butler 1* produced there, and the supply from the North is stopped. There Is no business dono in that city except in connection with the war. A powder mill has been recently prcctcd and put in operation. The clerics In the stores have all gone to the war, and so havo tho proprietors, un" less wliero age or other Infirmity keeps tliem lit home, fhey talk of tho city being burned by tho Yankees some of these days, and are resolved, if need bo, to anticipate tbcm and apply the torch themselves. Our informant appears (Irmly convinced (hat the rebels have at this moment no less than 2/10,000 to 300,000 men In Virginia. Sho speaks of a letter or despatch from Jeff. Davis to parsons high in authority in Charleston stating such to bo the fact and intimating tho noar approach of a grout Initio at or noar Alexandria. For this he Isconccn. tratlngall his force. Ilo holiovcs that the fed r t'.shave tacitly accepted thjfl^r alignment, and are preparing to ofli-r him battle bjMHkoher; hut ho proposes to hurry l!>Qm up by a montiS^D. . ?? If thore be apythtSg ffi Ac slutotushi it all?us does not appear very probable?iris just a- likely that tho rebel leader may have oven liis proposed time anticipated by ( nernl MeCUllan. Hut it is more than likely that this di spatch, or letter, Is one of tie t- Muncli't'iauuisras which are so readily swallowed In the region South of the Poto* tunc. Anothorof tho sumo brand is th. assurance that the house of Rothschild has contracted a largo loan with the Southern confederacy. "Hath not a Jo.v eyes?" One thing certain Is, that spocio Is almost forgotten as a circulating medium in the deserted marts of t'harleston. Our in'orinant, however, managed to get enough, at a discount of fifteen per cent, to pay har expense s to Now Vork. If a naval demonst.ru' ion is to bo made; a piinst any or all of the Southern ports, it is desirable that the lethargic steep in which our naval authorities seem to bo buried be immediately broken, and that something bo done hi that lino. The r< be) Congress lias foi bid 'en tho exportation of cotton except through Southern ports. Mutterlugs of discontent with our blockade eoino from Franco and England. One proof of its offt ettveness is thnt no vessel ruvciiod tho wharf la Charleston sinco it was est'ibii: hpd. The will and interest of ail parties may ba promoted by seizing tlieso ports. Charleston, Mobile, or New Orleans in our hatuli, tiio blockade in rospect thereto will bo at on end, tho dorroo of the rebel Congress put hi to practical operation, snd our transatlantic friends deprived of ali cause of grumbling. If it be not done then the belief n>. at least at Charleston. that un atUmpt to break tho blockade will bo tnade la October. Will Mr. Secretary Well- - please take notice.
