N. O. Washington Artillery. - Two companies of the celebrated Battalion of Washington Artillery, under Major Walton, left for Manassas Junction about 12 o'clock on yesterday. The remaining company will no doubt soon join their comrades. We know of no body of men more capable of raining iron hail on their enemies than these same artillerymen. Success to them.
