TaftXS,—$#.00 a gear if paid tcitkin three months fmm the date qf subscription, or S7.00 at the end qf f hsyear. The Campaign in Virginia. The fate of the nation is to be decided in Virginia. Richmond is nothing; Gen. Lee's army is everything. While we wait for more definite tidings from the Rappahannock, let ns try to trace briefly the movements prece ding the grand battle, in which Gen. Hooker hoped to annihilate the rebel Army of Virginia The materials furnished by correspondents of the New York and Philadelphia press are now amply sufficient. Two weeks ago Gen. Stoneraan was sent up the Rappahannock, with a strong force of cav alry, to effect a diversion on the right. It is supposed to have been Gen. Hooker’s inten tion at that time to have crossed the river be low Fredericksburg. The rebel cavalry under Stuart moved westward to Culpepper, and re mained In observation. There was no move nt ent of rebel infantry. Heavy rains set in and the cavalry of the two armies remained in position near the line of the Orange and Alex andria railway. On Monday, 20th April, two divisions were sent 20 miles down the Rappahannock to Port Conway, where they built an immense number of fires night after night. The bulk of the two divisions was soon recalled; but the fires were kept up. Gen. Hooker had changed his plan, and determined to cross above Falmouth, and was accordingly making these demonstrations below. Stonewall Jackson went down the river with 60,000 men, it is estimated, to watch the movements on the north bank. At last on Monday, the 27th April, three or seven infantry corps of the Army of the Poto mac were put iu motion for the real place of crossing. Gen. Howard's 11th corps was one of these; General Slocum of the 12th was in com mand. They reached Kelly’s ford, 25 miles above Fredericksburg, Tuesday evening. General Howard crossed that night. General Slocum followed early next morning; Stoneman's cav alry joined the expedition; General Meade brought up the rear with the 5tli infantry corps, and moved eastward to Ellis ford of the Rapidan. By night the troops were all on the south bank of the second river, which joins the Rappahannock below Kelly’s ford— Slocum, Howard and Stoneman having cross ed without serious opposition at Germania, above Ellis ford. Early Thursday morning, General Meade pushed forward to Chancellorvitle, ten miles southwest of Fredericksburg, where he was joined in the course of the day by Slocum and Howard. The cavalry threatened the Rich mond and Fredericksburg railway. It was be Ueved that the rebel cavalry were cut off from their army. The 2d-iniantry corps, un der Couch, was at Banks's ford, five miles a hove Fredericksburg, to which point Sickles 3d corps was marching. These two corp joined the three already occupying Chancel 1 orville on Friday. Meanwhile the two remaining corps, Rey nolds’ and Sedgwick’s had successfully occu pied the attention oi the enemy in front. Bridges were thrown across the river at points one and four miles below Fredericksburg Tues day night, and a crossing was effected Wed nesday morning with little loss. On Thurs day they held undisturbed possession of the right bank of the river, but on Thursday Rey nolds’ 1st corps also was ordered to Banks’s ford, where it seems to have been held in re serve. The great battle has been fought since then. The reports received hitherto indicate that the enemy was compelled to leave his intrench men ta so bare that Sedgwick's solitary corps was able to occupy them, and to fight the de cisive battle in the open plain, his communica tions severed, the river behind and nearly the Whole of the army of the Fotomac before bin-. If he is beaten under these circumstances, the army of Virginia will be destroyed, and God grant that it may. Up to Sunday forenoon, the most desperate efforts had failed to force the Union lines. Lee's whole army had been brought up to retake their lost line of com munications, and Sedgwick bad appeared in his rear, on the heights above Fredericksburg. Whether ultimately successful or not, General Hooker has executed the most brilliant man euver which has been conceived since the war began, and we may and must hope for a con clusion worthy of so splendid an initiative. Maj. Gen. Hiram G. Berry. The telegraph has spread the mournful news—especially mournful to the people of this state—that the brave, gallant, patriotic Berry has fallen in discharge of his duty and at the head of his columns, on the bloody field near Fredericksburg. Gen. Berry belonged In Rockland, where be was well known and universally esteemed. He was a man of fine buaineas qualities, of strong mental powers, of unswerving patriotic impulses, and was among the first to volunteer responsive to the calls of his country. He went from home in com mand of the Maine 4th, and was in the bloody fight at Bull Run, where his regiment suffered severely. He was appointed Brigadier General, was in the entire peninsular campaign, and was intimately associated with Hooker, for whom he entertained the most profound respect- At Williamsburg be performed deeds of valor and daring which turned the fortunes of the day, and changed what seemed on the eve of be ing a disastrous defeat into a glorious victory. I For this and subsequent gallant deeds he was promoted to a Major Generalship, and in the commencement of the pending battles was at the head of Hooker's old Division. But he 1 has fallen—nobly, gloriously fallen—and his | State will long mourn his loss. Hit family will share largely In the public sympathy. How many brave hearts, engaged in the same strife, have gone down with him, Heaven only knows. The fearful catalogue is to come. Such is the price of glory; such the cost of patriotism, aud such are some of the things which will go to swell the fearful calendar of evils for which rebellion is responsible, and to w avenge which the nation’s energies will be put forth in still more terrible power. Sudden Death in Waterville.—A cor respondent at Waterville writes that Mr. Eb en Garland of that town fell dead on Maine street, Tuesday morning, 5th Inst. “He had been intoxicated in the streets for several days and was put in the lockup the night previous. Immediately after coming out in the morning he died.” Our correspondent adds, “Thirty unmolested rum shops on the street were the cause.” Improvements.—Messrs. Charles Staples A Son are erecting a large machine shop on Commercial street, adjoining the Sugar Works.

Capture of ■ Georgia Regiment. Rebels Attempt to Force our Lines and are Driven Back with Oreat Slaughter. General Berry Killed while Leading our Home Men. All Retreat to Richmond Entirely Cot off. New Yohk, May 5. The Times and Herald contain long and in teresting accounts of the proceedings of Gen. Hooker’s army. The Times' correspondent states that after three days’ skirmishing on 1)0til sides, the rebels ou Saturday afternoon and evening, attacked our right flank, Jackson with liis wuole corps of 40,000 men throwing himself impetuously on Gen. Howard's corps. But the movement was otily partially success ful, and reinforcements being promptly sent by Gen. Hooker, tlie rebels were handsomely checked, Howard's corps consisted ofSchurz’s, Stinnnelor's and Devius' divisions. The Tunes' correspondent states that Uevius’ division dis gracelully abandoned their position behind their breastworks, and rushed panic stricken towards the headquarters. Our right was thus completely turned, and the rebels in a fair way of doubling us up. Geo. Hooker was immedi ately in the saddle, and turning to the com mander ol his own old corps, Gen. Berry, he shouted, “ General, throw your men into the breach, and receive the enemy on your bayo nets. Don’t Are a shot. They can’t see you.” They rushed gloriously at double quick to the rescue, pressing forward a horrid array of glit tering steel. The enemy were checked, and retired to the breastworks just abandoned by Howard's corps. Batteries were immediately massed on tlie crest of tlie hill, pouring in a terrific tire till late in the night. . Gen. I’leasaiiton also checked tlie enemy with a flying battery of a dozen pieces. He drew up his little brigade of cavalry with drawn sabres to protect the guns. He had them double shotted with canister and swept the enemy's position with a murderous lire.— lu this charge of tlie rebels they took from the cowardly Dutchmen, as tlie Times’ corres pondent styles them, twelve pieces of cannon. Tlie Germans tied past Gen. Hooker's head quarters in a panic. Many of the members of endeavored to stay tlieir flight. Gen Sykes' regulars are picking them up. What made this retreat most disastrous, was the lact that Gen. Sickles had, by a branch road, pierced the enemy’s centre, and pene trated lor a mile, cut them in twain, and se cured tlie key to victory, when the turning of Howard’s position obliged him to retreat, bringing off 400rebel prisoners. The artillery combat continued until midnight fiercely. Another correspondent of the Times, dating Sunday evening, says it was reported from Gen. Howard’s front that the rebels had been engaged all Friday night cutting a road past bis right, but not much altedtion was paid to the fact. On the afternoon of Saturday, it was report ed by the pickets on the right of Gen. Slo cum’s front, that wagons had been seen tnov in ill day in a westerly direction. ii. Sickles with a lieavy force was sent to reconnoitre, when the advance fell in with the rear of Gen. Jackson's army. Gen. Sickles immediately pushed on to checkmate Jackson, and soon captured the entire 23d Georgia reg iment, 300 strong. Including the officers. This movement of Gen. Sickles cut Jackson's force id two, when Uen. Williams commenced a flank movement on the enemy's right, with a good prospect of success. It was supposed that Gen. Howard's corps, formerly Gen. Sigels, would successfully resist Jackson’s movement, but the first division as sailed, Carl Schurz’s, almost instantly gave way, thousands of the cowards throwing down their arms ami streaming towards headquar teis. Gen. Devins’ division, disafl'ected by the demoralization ol the others, was unable to stand against the rebels, and Devius was a second lime wonnded in the foot while endeav oring to rally bis men. Gen. Howard, with all Ins daring and resolution, could not stem the tide, and the brigades of Cols. Bushbeck and McLean remained lighting as long as pos sible, retiring in good order. Of course this disaster compelled the recall ol Gen. Sickles, who had been vigorously at work. Uen. Williams’ division returned to And a portion of their works occupied by the enemy. Gen. Sickles could not communicate with the whole ol his army by the route he came, and Gen. Hooker ordered a night at tack to restore the communication. (fen. Ward's brigade, aided by Betts battery, made an attack at 11 o’clock at night, which was entirely successful, and in a charge made by the brigade a portion of the artillery lost by Gen. Howard was gallantly retaken by Gen. Hobart Ward. The enemy were driven back nearly a mile that night (Saturday.) Our men slept on their arms. On Sunday at 3 o’clock in the morning, the rebels could be plainly seen on the plank road about l 1-2 miles from Gen. Hooker’s head quarters at Chancellors House, which house had been penetrated the evening previously by a shell. Our line of battle was immediate ly formed, and in half an hour our advance became engaged, the enemy advancing his infantry iu overwhelming force, seeming deter mined to crush ours. Gens. Sickles and Slo cum, brave men, however held them in check,, inflicting dreadlul slaughter upon them. , Freuch’s division was sent in on our right, and soon crushed that portion of the enemy’s line, and at 8 o'clock in the mominv French sent his compliments to Gen. Hooker, stating that he had charged the rebels, and was driv ing them before him. Five whole rebel divisions were thrown up on Gen. Sickles, but he and his gallant soldiers held the traitors in check, taking during the day an aggregate of over 2,000 prisoners. The tight was a desperate hand to hand conflict, and the carnage was perfectly frightful. The officers say the dead and wounded rebels cov ered the ground in henps. The rebels literally throwed themselves upon the muzzles of our guns. Gen. Mott’s brigade made sixteen distinct charges, and captured seven stands of rebel colors. The 7th X. J., Col. Francis, alone captured four stands of colors and 500 prisoners. Part of Gen. Couch’s 2d corps was present, Hancock gallantly going to the relief of the hard pressed Sickles. The engagement lasted from 5.30 to 8.45 A. M., when, being out of ammunition, our forces held their position for an hour at the point of the bayonet, when being resupplied, they fell back in good order to Chancellor House, where the contest was again renewed with great havoc to the enemy, and considerable loss to ourselves. The vicinity of Chancellor House was now the theatre of the tight, and Gen. Hooker maintained his headquarters there till 10 o'clock, when it was burned by rebel shells. In the meantime Hooker had established a new line, and our forces were withdrawn to that point. At 11.30 A. M. musketry tiring ceased. The engagement lastee six hours, and was the most terrific of the war. Our artil lery literally slaughtered the enemy. Many of our batteries lost heavily, but the guns were all saved. The enemy is now no longer in our rear, but directly in our front, betweeu us and our forces in Fredericksburg, we occupying a fort!lied and entrenched posinon. The enemy have gained some ground, but at the sacrifice of live of his seven divisions. On Sunday afternoon the rebels made sev eral attempts to force our lines, several of his batteries and regiments being actually de stroyed in attempts to carry the aoex of our position near Chancellor House, where a large quantity of our artillery is massed. Our pres ent position is impregnable. The rebel Gen. Lee has ordered that our lines must be broken at all hazards, but the rebels will only destroy themselves by their attacks. Our troops arc perfectly cool and confident. The rebel Gen. Hill is reported killed. Gen. Berry was killed while leading his brave men. Among the killed and wounded are the fol lowing Maine soldiers:—Major Gen. Berry, killed; Lieut. Miller, 4th, killed. A letter from Falmouth, dated Sunday, 10 P. M.,says Gen. Sedgwick attacked the heights of Fredericksburg and gallantly carried them by storm, capturing the 10th and 18th rebel Mississippi regiments, one. company of the famous Washington Artillery of New Orleans, and part of Alexander’s artillery, in all eight guns and over 1000 prisoners. The storming force was Gen. Pratt s light division, aided by Gen. Giblion, who actually planted the stars and stripes over the rebel works before the latter had ceased tiring upon our charging column. Our loss is moderate. Gen. Scdg wick afterward engaged the rebels and drove them back, and at 6 1’. M. Sunday he had ad vanced to the brick church, four and a half miles out on the plank road towards Chancel lorvllle. Here he bad a severe engagement with Earl's division, reinforced byX.ee, but repulsed them, sending to the rear another batch of prisoners. The enemy are now hemmed in between Howard and Sedgwick— the advantage resting decidedly with us. The Herald's account ol the storming of the heights of Fredericksburg is very interesting. After crossing and occupying Fredericksburg and considerable inanceuvering to obtain po sitions, the assault was made by the 3d and 8lh divisions, under Gen. Newton, on the rebel centre, Gibbon on the right and Howe on the left. Newton's attack was made up Mary's Hill, less than a mile from the main street of the city, at 11 A. M. Sunday. As j soon as the columns advanced, a terrible fusil ade was opened by the rebels. Col. Spear, of the 61st cavalry, was hit, and his regiment wavering, were rallied by Gen. Shaler, who carried them to the top of the hill. The left column had about the same experience. Col. “Johns,” of the 7th Mass., being wounded, his regiment faltered, but were rallied by Col. Walsh, of the 36th N. Y., and the glorious fel lows went in once more and were successful. Col. Burnham, of the 6th Me., claims that his regimental colors were first on the hill. In this assault the following Maine officers were killed:—M^jor Haycock, Capts. Billings,Gray and Young, of the 6th Maine. Alvin A. Dow, of Hancock, Co. B, is reported wounded in neck and hip. We captured eight guns and 1000 prisoners. Our loss was about 1000 killed and wounded. The World states mat the battle was renew ed on Monday, and was a most desperate affair. The rebels made a series of superhuman at tacks on all sides, but were repulsed with terrible slaughter. Our forces have destroyed the bridges in the rear of the rebels, across the Mattapony river, thus completely cutting all retreat for them to Richmond. Tne Philadelphia Inquirer has a dispatch, purporting to be from Washington yesterday, stating that a telegram from Lee to Richmond was intercepted calling for reinforcements, announcing his entire inability to hold out two days longer unless they are sent. Sloneman’s cavalry, in the rear of the rebels, are said to have cut the Virginia Central Railroad near Milford Station, southwest of Cbancellorville, tearing up five miles of the track, and captur ed a rebel supply train, thus cutting off all rebel communication with Richmond. The correspondent of the Commercial Ad vertiser, at Washington, dating Monday after noon, says Gen. Hooker sends no bulletins of his success, but leaves all here, from the Presi dent down, to glean what information they can from the couriers of the New York press, who pass through with information. The Union troops appear to have been glo riously victorious, and although many brave men have fallen, the virtual destruction of T nMiin S 11 I... - I 1.1__ el...__ The Herald's Suffolk correspondent gives an account of a reconnoisance by the 99th N. V., on the afternoon of the 1st, which was gallantly performed in the face of the three rebel brigades. The 99th had seven killed and 37 wounded. Brig. Gen. Gordon has tieen assigned to the command of a division at Suffolk where he arrived on the 30th. The rebels are in large force in front of Suffolk. Our troops are in excellent spirits and anxious to meet them. Washington, May 5. Every one here is in the best spirits, and the columns of prisoners who have been inarched along Pennsylvania Avenue to-day are so many proofs of our success. Or. Lettcrman's requisition for blankets and other extra comforts for the wounded have been promptly met, and a large force of nurses and agents of Stale Associations have gone down. The weather is pleasant and no exertions will be spaied to alleviate the sufferings of those who have aided in obtaining this glorious success. Arrest of VaUandigham. Cincinnati, May 5. Hon. Clement L. Vallandigham was arrested at his residence in Dayton, Ohio,this morning, by a detachment of soldiers, who went up from Cincinnati in a special train last night. The soldiers were obliged to batter down two or three doors in his house before they could reach his room and take him. His friends tlieu rung the lire bells and called out the peo ple, when an attempt was made to rescue him but failed. He was brought to this city. ORIGINAL AND SELECTED.

WISTAR'S BALSAM OF WILD CHERRY.— Coughs, Odds, Bronchitis, Asthma, Croup, Whoop ing Cough, Quinsy, and the numerous as well as dangerous diseases of the Throat, Cftrtt and Lungs, prevail, in our changeable climate, at all seasons of theyear: few are fortunate enough to escape their baneftil influence. How important then to have at hand a certain antidote to all these complaints. Ex perience proves that this exists In Wistar's Balsam to an extent not found in auy other remedy; howev er severe the suffering, the application of this sooth ing, healing and wonderftil Balsam at once van quishes the disease and restores the sufferer to wont ed health. GEORGE W. MILLETT, Eaq., Editor of the “Xorway Advertiser” gives his opin ion of this great remedy substantially as follows : Norway Village, Me., Aug. 4, I860. Messrs. S. W. Fowls A Co., Boston Gentlemen : —For a remedy of such undoubted merit as Dr. Wistar's Balsam or Wild Cherry, 1 cheerfully give von ray testimony, and trust that others may be induced thereby to give it a trial and be relieved. Several rears since 1 first became ac quainted with this Balaam at a time of a distressing cough and cold, which took such firm hold ot my lungs as to render me unfit for business, and its op eration produced a speedy and permanent cure, after trying various remedies to no avail. In our town this remedy is a great favorite with manv, and if all who suffer will give it a fair trial, I think they will find it to be of more service in pul monary affections, than any other remedy of this class before the public. Yours respectfully, Geo. W. Millett. Prepared by SETH W. FOWLE A CO., Boston, and for sale by all druggists. mch21 d A w8m40 ROOM PAPERS.
