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.”

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

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.

SPECIAL NOTICES.
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.
