Hooker's Retreat to Washington
The Facts About Milroy's Defeat-
Gen. Lee Threatens Washington.
[Special Correspondence to the Chicago Times.]
WASAINGTON, June 15.
I prcBntne "tlio Government," by
mcanu of the telegraph and telegraph
censor, has sent you a mas9 of glorious
news during the lust throo day. J
suppose "tho Government" has caused
you to bo informed that Ilooker line
gained a groat victory over General
Leo; that Hoo.ei, with his beuver
up, is watching, with eagle eye, the
movements of tho enomy : that lloo
ker is now moving on tho chord of a
circle, while Lee has to travel all the
way round tho arc; that Milroy lias
repulsed General EwuH t with terrific
loss on the part of tho enemy, and
one man killed and ono slightly woun
dtd on ours ; that 20,000 rebisl troops
nave invaded 1 cnnsylvania and are
now marching on Harrisbnrg, but
that Hooker's arrangements are such
that ho will bo able to cnuiuro the
whole party before they can get back
to Virginia. Such is tho stuff that
tho loyal people of tho country are
compelled to swallow. Let me now
give you the truth.
J'irst, Hooker s army Its retreated
to Washington, and retreated, too, in
haste and confusion, and with great
loss of men and baggage. A letter
from a gentleman who accompanied
the uiovenieut says : "At daylight on
Sunday morning, on Juno 14, we
were on. Oar corps was hurried up
toward Warrcnton, and from there wc
oiled 10 tho dust toward Manassas.
At Aquia Creek, vast qnantities of
forage and commissary stores, tents,
baggage and equipments were con
signed to the flames. Our march was
rapid and disorderly. Budges broke
down beneath tho teams, drowoing
mules ana horses : droves ot horses
became unmanageable and rushed
through the column liko a tornado ;
and the men, choked with dnst, strag
gled out into the fiolds. We passed
Bull iiun and Occoquan, and to night
the whole countrv south of the Occo
quan is abandoned to the enemy.
iit mystery mat has enveloped
General Leo's movements is now
clearing up. You have seen how
terribly the people of Pennsylvania,
particularly .those of XJariisbnrg, have
oeen inguienea. a day or two ago
the people were leaving Ilarrisbnrg
oy hundreds, ana fleeing to the JNorth;
the money in nil the banks was re
moved to rhuadelphia ; the State
archives i wero sent to New York ; the
1 I CI.-.- ft I
docks . comyuBiug me oiaie uorary
were boxed op and Bent to Philadel
phia j Governor Ourtin, "although
worn on: with labor, sorrow and want I
ot rest, says he will not leavo tho cjty
until Lis personal safety requires it,
when he will proceed to Philadelphia,
and carry on the State Government
there ;" a hotel worth $100,000 was
offerod for sale at 116,000, and not
an offer was made for it ; the people
who left the city did so with the' full
conviction of their ability to have
defended it had the proper measures
been adopted; iu a word, Harris
burg was virtually surrendered to the
enemy. AH that was wanting whs,
that the enemy should come and tako
it. Why did they not I
The reason was, there was no
enoinv to come. That is, none in
Pennsylvania. The "rebel raiders,"
that caused all this insane terror, were
nothing more than the uyiug fugitives
from Miiroy's command, who were so
badly frightened that, when they once
started to run, they did not know
whon to stop. The facta are briefly
as follows :
A few days before General Leo was
ready to begin his movements toward
tho North, he started off oue division
of Gonoral E well's corps, about ten
thousand strong, lrom Culpepper, to
ward Winchester. At Starsburg.thie
column of infantry was joined by
about nve thousand roouuted end
organised guerrillas, nnuer Colonel
Imbodcn, General Jones and General
Jenkins. These fifteen thousand men
attacked and routed tho Union Gen
erals Milroy at Winchester and Tyler
at Maitinsburg. It has been stated.
in tho Administration papers, that
General Milroy brought off all his
guns and baggugo in safety, and also
reached Harper s terry with thegrea
tcr part of his forces. I know tho
very re verso to bo tho fact,
1 havo accn and conversed witl
officers who wero wilh him during
the wholo atlair. lliu attack was a
complete surprise. His men fought
well, but were driven out of their
works at tho point of thA bayonet.
mo retreat was men maao witn pre
cipitntion. Ail the cannon were
abandoned, and the retreat was so
hasty the officers even left their
trunks behind, and did not even saye
a cliango of clothing. Tho fifth iJary
land Kegiinent was entirely eut to
pieces. Other regiments sutlered
severely, and Milroy t total loss was
fully five thousand men. The wagon
train, which arrived at Ilarrisburgon
Tuesday, June 16, was ono that Mil
roy hud sent away on the Dreceuing
Friday. After the capturo of Martina-
burg, tho Confederate inlantry re
maiucd along the line of the Balti
more and Ohio Railroad, of which
they had possession, from Harper's
Ferry to tho western Siato line of
Maryland. Thoy havo been ongagod
ever sicca in tearing up and destroy
ing tho road. They are in possess
ion of Cumberland, Bath aud Han
cock, and also of Harper's Ferry
The Maryland Hights, opposite Uar
per 8 terry, aro still held by Uonora
lyler, and tho Confederates have
manifested no disposition to attack
After tho capture of Martinsburg,
1,800 of tho mounted guerrillas croesod
the i otomac at VYilliamsport, and
rode to UagerBtown, and thenco to
Chambersburgiu Pennsylvania. This
is the cntiro force that has produced
all tho consternation and terror in
Pennsylvania. History will prove
the truth of this.
In the mean time, General Loe's
army ha3 advanced from Culpepper
to Warionton, aud from Warrenton
to Centcrville. Ue has mada this
distance without the slightest opposi
tion from Hooker. Hooker, indeed,
so far from watching the enemy with
eager eyo, la completely bewildered,
and does not know what to do. Wash
ington, therefore, is again beleagnred
by the rebel hordes. Lee's design
undoubtedly is to attack Hooker's
army. It he docs this, he will have
t to do right before this city, for Hoo
ker's design, ever since Lee crossed
the Rappahannock, has been to gain
the sholtcr or tbe Washington torts.
Whether he has succeeded or not, I
am not allowed to tell you. But Gen
eral Lee knows, and the world will

Lincoln Sells Out to a Woman—
The Great Democratic State Convention
We have only room this week to
notico this great demonstration of the
17th inst. by calling attention to the
following report of the Bpeech of Gen.
Mcn-instry. it develops a state of
thiuga in and about the White House'

roption at St. Louis, which resulted
in the dismissal of Fremont, and the
arrebtand trial of Gen. McKinstrv.
It now appears that Presidont Lincoln

bottom of it, and the conviction of

Ihoso spoken of by Geo. McKinstry.

"General McKinstry, in hid speech,
statod that when the war broke out he
was Quartermaster and Provost Mar
shal at Sc. Louis, and belonged to the
Uegular Army, (having been educated
by his cnuutry, to which he owed his
eurvices,) and while thus engaged, bo
received a letter lrom Lincoln asking
mm to give u large contract, ior su
plyiug the Western army, with pro-
visions, to J as. L. Lamu.ot Spring-
held, and a lady, whoso name he
would not mention, but who was
relative of tho Presidents family.
This demand was so contrary to all
army regulations that ha wrote to Mr
Liuuoln, saying that he could not give
'.he- contract out, excopt in accord
ance with army regulations, viz : to
advertiso for proposals. The contract
involved the expenditure of milltous
of dollars, and was such a one as ho, a
good Democrat, could not give, as
asked to do, and accordingly he posi
tjvely refused. Subsequently, when
in the discharge of his duty, at the
headcf the command, marching into
Arkansas, ho wa3 arrested without
knowing what for, taken to St. Louis
and there imprisoned, nnd so remain
od in prison lor several months, with
out auy knowledge of tho cliiwges
against him, and an Abolition Gen
eral Uuuter groans lor nunterl ix

last ho was allowed a trial before a
military court martial, and could say,
with regard to his trial, that he was
perhaps the only officer in the service
who had to light threo million ot
green-backs, intimating that so much
money was used to procure his con
victionof the charges preferred against
him. Ho was convicted ot several ot
the charges and specifications, among
which was one for having bought
horses at an exorbitantly high agnre,
viz : oue hundred aud nineteen dollars
for each horse, when it happens that
since that time tho Government has
paid one hundred and fifty dollars for
that class of horses ever since. He
was convicted of having paid thirty
seven cents per bushel for corn, and
the Government ever since bos not
been paying less than sixty cents.
He was also convicted of having paid
forty cents a bushel for oats, and it is
a fact that the Government has been
paying from sixty to sixty-five cents
per bushel ever since. These are the
charges upon which ho was convicted
by this Adminstration. Ho had no
confidence in thoso in power in this
country. They are a set of dishonest
politicians, who would sacrifice the
country and every thing that patriots
should hold dear to free tho negro.

An Infamous Sentiment.
Judge Fisiiback, of Batavia,
Clormont County, Ohio, a life long
and most malignant hater of the
Democratic party a man respected
for his ago,but for nothing else--made
lately a mobt incendiary and infamous
speech at his residence to an Aboli
tion meeting. He gave utterance to
the following sentiment, according to
the report in the Batavia Sun. Demo
crats were astounded, while Republi
cans applauded to the echo :
"I All FOB a mihtabt despotism
in TUE3B times. In my judgment,
Mr. Lincoln has erred in only sending
one from the North into exile ; he
ought to have need the rope about the
necks of fifty. 1 highly approve tbe
sentiment of Gerrit Smith, that 'the
only thing to be done is to pat down
the rebellion, and let the Constitution
and the Union taka care of them-
selves.' I wish l could get my heel
00 the Copperheads in the North, and
1 would crash them to powder."
This man possesses so bad a heart
that ho would like to deluge the North
in the blood of civil strife,in order that

opponents. There is no atrocity til'
