has been thrice breveted for ga'hmt con

serve under him. The Tr iune says it is
notorious that this Schenck has not a

Washington, July 22d,
The balilo yesterday was one of tho
most severe and sanguinary ever fought
on this continent, and it ended in the
liiilm-n nf the I'llHin trooos to hold all tho

' wi,jcu they actunlly'did carry.rmd in their

j j-iie a,iack was made in three column!!,
two of w hich, however, were mainly feiuts,
intended to n in use und occupy tho enemy,
while tho substantial work was dutio by
the third. It has been known for a long
titoo iiint. the raniio of hills which border
the srcnll.swampy stream known i s null a
Run, had been thoroughly und extensive
fortined by the rebels ; that batteries liad
been pl.ir.ted at every available point, us
ually concealed in luo wojds and buslies
which ubound in that vicinity, and cover
ing every way of approach to the reg;on
beyond." These are tho defences of Man
assas Junction, which is some three miles
lurther oil'. Unt.l these were carried no
approach could bo made to that place;
and afier they should bo carried others of
t similar character would have to be over
comu at every point where they could bo
Tu utmost that military skill nnd in
genuity could accomplish for tho defen-.o
of this point, win done. Gen. McDowell
was un Aillini! t make on attack diiectly
in the face of these butteries, as they
would be of doubtful itsuo, and must in
erit.'ibly result in a very serious loss of
life. Alter an attack had been resolved
upon, tlieri'iore, he endeavored to find
some way of turning the position. His
first inlentson was to do this on the
sonthern side -to throw a strong column
into tho placo from that direction, while
a feigned uttuck should be niado in front..
1 On J hursday, when the troops wero ad-
vanced l '.enireviiie. 11 was iounu mai,
the roads on the soulh side of these posi

thoy were nariow, crooked and stony, and
that it would bo almo-t impossible to be
