WEDNESDAY, MAY 0,1803.
FBOH THE RAPPAHANNOCK.
Ko news is not always good news. The
Government, up to present .writing (12:30
a. m.), is reticent, and keeps a close hold
upon telegraphic communication from
"Washington. This can only mean one of
two things. It is significant of a defeat,
or of incomplete operations, whose pro-:
gress might be marred by a free rush of
news dispatches over the wires. We
choose to believe, from the evidence we
fi»s morning lay before our readers, that
the latter is the case, in this instance*
Enough seems now to be known to show
that all was going on well up to Monday,
and that the rebels were getting the worst
of it. Already a large number of rebel
prisoners, some three thousand in number,
have arrived at Washington. Gallant and
noble fighting has been done by our troops,
and there arc rumors of graud successes
and advantages already gained. The
hlood-stained field of Burnside’s ill-starred
battle is now ours.
From our dispatches, and from the care
ful resume wc- compile from our New
York and Philadelphia exchanges, our
readers will he able to study out very
clearly the situation of the army, audio-
cate on the accompanying map its points
of advance to the position at Chancellor-
Tille. This, even thus far dcvelopes what
is greatly to Gen. Hooker’s praise. He
deceived the enemy, and by a skillful feint
crossed the river with his army, without
loss, by a grand detour of over sixty miles,
and appears suddenly in heavy force on
the rear and left flank of his foe. The
enemy who had responded to the feint at
crossing below Fredericksburg must have
done some heavy marching, for they have
been recalled suddenly to move out to
wards Cbancellorville. The whole move
ment on the part of our troops
is exceedingly well done and the
work needs only the gilding of
success to give it a place as one of the
most remarkable of military achievements.
The news of last night, incomplete as it
js, unsanctloucd by any official tidiugs,
will, nevertheless, be received as a cheering
earnest of successes gained, on which a
substantial final victory waits.
NOW liETTUEITI ni3 PUNISHED.
The dispatches announce that the mili
tary arm has at last taken hold of the in
famous Vallandigham. For just this have
loyal men waited for many months past,
though their indignant blood has tingled
to their fingers tips to sec the traitor stalk
to and fro among our communities, flaunt
ing his secession doctrines, and insulting
loyalty in the very house of its friends. He
has gone a little too far. He has openly
dared Gen. Burnside to carry out his late
order, and now it remains to be seen which
will prove the truest prophet, the General
who announces what he intends to do, or
the Copperhead who insultingly declares
what the General dare not do. Let Val
landighom be punished. The work can
begin on no better or purer sample of th.c
Northern traitor. Poor, little, inflated
Green, of Massac, wc had hoped 'to see
made an example of in this State, and it is
assuredly a weakness _ that he was
not. Thousands of ; loyal men will
wait now to witness the amplest
justice done to Vallandigham. There
should be no empty threatening this time
—no chance for bis cheap and unharmed
martyrdom. The brand of wholesome and
deserved punishment should be set upon
him to make him ignominious and a crime
like- his dangerous in the eyes of all men.
It is a melancholy weakness that has pos
sessed the Government thus far in the
treatment of these knaves. It should be
past now. TTith better and sterner work
in the field, it is time for a more thorough
handling of the home enemies of the Gov
ernment. Let Vallandigham head the list,
and all the people will say amen.
The disturbances at Dayton are a part of
the traitors’ programme. They mean by
these emeutes to intimidate the Govern
ment, and held it hack from enforcing its
necessary orders. It is by these outbreaks
made all the more necessary that the
wretches who inculcate such doctrines and
incite such outrages, be punished in an ex
emplary manner.

THE BATTLE AT CHANCELLORVILLE.
New York, May s.—The I\>st prints the
following as the latest news from General
Hooker’s army just received from Washing
ton.
The battle of Sunday was renewed on Mon
day morning. The enemy appeared to have
forces equal in number to our own, and his
successive attacks were made with desperate
spirit.
The Time# and the Herald contain long and
Interesting, accounts of the proceedings of
Hooker’s army.
The Turns' correspondent states that after
three day’s skirmishing on both sides, the
rebels on Saturday afternoon and evening at
tacked our right fiauk, Jackson, with Ms rebel
corps of 40,000 men, throwingbimselfimpctu
ously on Howard’s 11th corps; but the move
ment was only partially successful, and rein
forcements being promptly sent by Hooker,
the rebels were handsomely checked. How
ard*s corps consisted of Schurz’s, Stcinwhcy’a
and Diven’s divisions.
The Tima correspondent states that this
corps disgracefully abandoned their position
behind their breastworks, and rushed, panic
stricken, towards headquarters. Our right
was thus completely turned, and the rebels
were in a fair way of doub]jpg us up. Hooker
was Immediately in the saddle, and turnlugto
the commander of Ms own old corps, (Berry,)
chouted: “General, throw yonr men Into
the breach —receive the enemy on yonr bayo
nets—don’t fire a shot—they can’t sec you.”
They rushed gloriously at double-quick to the
rescue, pressing forward a horrid array of
glittering steel. The enemy were checked
and retired to the breastworks jast abandon
ed by Howard’s corps. The batteries were
immediately massed on the crest of a hill,
pooring in a terrific fire, until far into the
Right.
Gen. Plcasonton also checked a flying bat-
tcry of a dozen pieces. He drew up his little
brigade of cavalry with drawn sabres to pro
tect the guns. He had them double shotted
. ilb canister, acd swept the position murder
ously.
In this charge of the rebels, they took from
the “ cowardly Dutchmen,” os the Times' cor-
respondent styles them, twelve pieces of can
non. The Germans fled past Hookers head
.-quarters in a panic, many members of the
Vtaff, wlih pistols and sabres, vainly endeav
oring to stay their flight. Syke’s regulars are
pick Inc them up.
Tlie artillery combat continued tHI raid
night, fiercely. Hooker and his staff were all
the time under the severest fire.
Another correspondent ot the Timex, dating
Sunday evening, says: It was reported from
Howard’s front, that the rebels had been en-
gaged all Friday night in enttiugaroad past
his right, but not much attention was paid to
tbe fact. On the afternoon of Saturday, It
was reported by the pickets to the right of
Slocum’s front, that wagons were seen mov
ing all day in a westerly direction. Sickles,
with a heavy force, was sent to reconnoitre,
when the advance fell in with the rear of Jack-
son’s army. Sickles immediately pushed on
to checkmate Jackson, and soon captnrcd the
entire 23d Georgia regiment, of4oo, Including
the officers. This movement of Sickles cut
Jackson's force in two. and Gen. Williams
••ommtnccd a flank movement on the enemy's
right, with good prospects of success.
It was supposed that Howards corps (for
merly Sigcl’s) would successfully resist Jack
son's movements; hut the first division as-
sailed (Carl Schnrz's) almost instantly gave
way, thousands throwing down their gnus
and streaming towards headquarters. Gen.
Divcn's division, by the demoralization of the
others, was unable to stand against the rch
ds, and Dlvcn was a second time wounded in
the foot while endeavoring to rally his men.
Howard, with all his daring and resolution,
could not stem the tide,-and the brigades of
Cols. Buehbcck and McLean remained fight-
ing as long as possible, retiring in good order.
Of course this disaster compelled tho recall
of Sickles, who had been vigorously at work.
Gcn. Williams' division returned to find a
portion of his works occupied by the enemy.
Sickles could not communicate with the whole
of bis army bythc route he came, and Hooker
ordered a night attack to restore communica
tion. Ward’s brigade, aided byßcst’shattciy,
made the 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 Howard was gallantly retaken, and the en
emy driven back nearly a mile. That night
(Satnrdav) onr men slept on their arms.
On Sunday, at 5 o'clock in the morning, the
rebels could be plainly seen on a plank load
about a mile and a half from Hooker 8 head
quarters, at the Chancellor House, which
house bad been penetrated the evening before
•by a shell. Onr lino of battle was immedi
ately formed, and In half an hour our advance
became engaged. Soon batallion after batal
lion became engaged, the enemy advancing
his Infantry In overwhelming numbers, seem
ing determined to crush ours. Sickles’ and
Slocum’s brave men, however, held thorn in
check, Inflicting dreadful slaughter upon
Scene of Gen. looker’s Operations.
thtrc. Fr'T.cb’s division wa= sent in on our
right flank, and soon cnir-Led -hat portion of

had charged the re 1 . Is, ;md w.;s drlvingthera
before him. Five whole rebel divisions were
thrown upon Sickles, but he and his gallant
io'dlcrs held tbetraitors in check, taklagdur
ing the day an aggregate of 2,000 prisoners.
The fight was a desperate hand to-hand con
flict, and the carnage was perfectly frightful.
Officers say that the dead and wounded rebels
covered the ground in heaps, the rebels lite
rally throwing themselves upon the muzzles
»f our guns.
Mott's brigade made fifteen distinct charges,
md captured seven stands'of rebel colors.
The Tib New Jersey alone captured four
stands of colors and SCO prisoners. Apart of
Couch’s 2d corps was {resent, Hancock gal
lantly going to the relief of hard-pressed
Sickles. The engagement lasted from 5.30 to
8 45 a. m., when, being out of ammunition,
our forcesheld their position, for an hour, at
ihe point of the bayonet. Upon being sup
plied, they fell back in good order to the
Chancellor House, where the contest was
again maintained with great havoc to the ene
my. and considerable loss to ourselves. The
viclni y of the Chancellor House is now the
theatre of the fight, and Hooker maintained
his headquarters there till 10 o’clock, when
it was burned by a rebel shell. In the mean
time, Hooker established a new line. Our
forces were withdrawn to that front, and at
ll.SOthe musketry firing ceased.
The engagement which lasted six hours,
was the most terrific of the war. Ouy 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, between us and our
forces in Fredericksburg, wc occupying a for
tified and entrenched position. The enemy
gained some ground, but at the sacrifice of
five of his seven divisions.
On Sunday afternoon the rebels made sev
eral attempts to force our lines, several of his
balterics and regiments being actually dcs
tioycd in their attempts to carry the apex of
onr position near the Chancellor House,
where a large quantity ol our artillery Is
massed.
Our present position is impregnable.
Gen. Leo ordered that onr lines most 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.
Gon. Berry was killed while leading his
brave men.

Among the killed and wounded are Major
General Berry, killed; Gen. Boren, Massa
chusetts, wounded in the foot; Gen. Mott,
wounded in two places; Lieut. CoL Scott, 3d

ment, killed, Lieut. Crosby, 4th regular bat
tery, killed; also a large number ol field and
company officers killed and wonnded, mostly
of New York and Pennsylvania regiments.
THE BATTLE OF FREDERICKSBURG
HEIGHTS.
PmnADELimiA, May s.—The Washington
CKrouicle of to-day has the following:
A gentleman who left Falmouth early yes
terday morning, reports that early Sunday
morning, simultaneously with the commence
ment of the battle on the right, our batteries
on the left opened on the rebel defenses of
Fredericksburg, which were replied to smart
• ly by the rebels, but thoir fire gradually slack
ened.
Our infantry immediately moved forward,
under direction of Gen. Sedgwick. The men
had bayonets fixed, and, presenting a firm
front, moved on steadily until they reached
within a few huudred yards of the famous
Stonewall.
Here they met with a most murderous fire
of infantry, wldle grape and canister plowed
through their ranks.
Still they pressed onward, and the wall was
cleared and the ridge gained.
The brave boys, with a on
ward toward the second line of entrench
ments, but an order reached them to return,
which was complied with, bat with a great
deal of reluctance.
The opinion gained ground that it was nec
essary not to drive them much farther, as
this would prevent our forces on the right
i caching their rear,
• Bo great was the panic of the rebels that
they abandoned cannon, arms, knapsacks and
every thing else that would in the least Im
pede their flight.
The works were held all day, without any
desperate efforts on the part of the enemy to
drive our forces from them. They kept up a
pretty sharp skirmish, and occasionally made
sallies out of tbeir second and third lines ot
entrenchments, but were invariably driven
back.
Upwards ofthlrtccu hundred prisonerswere
taken In the engagement, mostly belonging
to Mississippi, Georgia and "Virginia regi
ments. A large number ol officers, from
Colonel down, were also taken.
It is rumored that the rebels yesterday made
or were about to make an attack on our forces
within the works, but it is quite clear to every
one Independent of the high authority wo
have for the opinion, that even if they hav 6
been successful, it will amount to nothing.
The main fighting has been transferred to
some other point, and in the operations which
are now progressing as wc hope, to a success.,
ful completion,
The occupation of Fredericksburg is not of
the slightest consequence. If the rebels have
attacked us there, it is probably a mere feint,
and will only amount to a useless expenditure
of life audammunition.
Knw York, May o.—A Falmouth letter of
Sundav evening at ten o'clock, states that
Sedgwick attacked the heights of Fredericks
burg gallantlv, carrying them by storm, cap
tnrmgthe ICth and 16th Mississippi regi
numst, one companvjol the New Orleans
“Washington Artillery” of eight guns, and
over a thousand prisoners. General Gibbon
planted the Stars and Stripes over the rebel
works. Our loss is moderate.
Sedgwick afterwards drove the rebels back,
and at fi p. m. Sunday, had advanced to the
Prick Church, four and a half miles towards
Chanccllorsville, on the plank road. Here he
had a severe fight with Earle’s rebel division,
reinforced by fee, but repulsed them, taking
alotofprisoneis. , . .
The enemy is now hemmed in between
Hooker and Sedgwick. The advantage Is de
cidedly with ns. ...
The ITnald says: “Ourloss In tho storm
ing of the heights of Fredericksburg is about
1,000 killed and wounded.”
THE GENERAL SITUATION.
KEwToRKjMaj 3.—’The Washington IbpuUi
can in a postscript yesterday afternoon, says,
onr advices up to noon fo-day arc that the vic
tory of Gen. Hooker's army is more complete
than was at first supposed.
Ml that the most sanguine could hope for has
Ik at realized. We congratulate the army and
country upon this most important success.
There arc facts connected with this movement
which cannot at present bo stated, but when
It is completed they will dcvclopo themselves
and bo appreciated.
New York, May s.—The Evening JbiTa
Washington adjiccs say that the destruction

of the Railroad bridges over the Massaponax
and Mattapony Creeks, south of Fredericks
burg has certainly been accomplished, and the
roaa to Richmond is thus cut off to the ene
my. fcOO prisoners, including an entire regi
mert, the 23d Georgia, were brought to Wash
ington ihis morning, aud marched down
Pennsylvania Avenue to the Old Capitol
Prison.
Their appearance was the subject of univer
sal comment and remark. They were well
and comfortably clad, aud not one looked as
though he had not Lad enough to cat.
Two officers —Major General Evans of South
•Carolina, and a Brigadier General whose name
was not learned, were prominent among the
number. Evans was in command at Lees
burg during tbe Balls Blufl battle.
The Bulletin has issued au extra containing
news from to-day's Washington papers.
Fitzhngh Lee is a prisoner in Washington.
There is a report that we have captured over
S,CCO prisoners.
Tluf Philadelphia Inquirer has a dispatch
purporting to be from Washington, yesterday,
stating that a telegram from Lee to Richmond
had been intercepted, calling for reinforce
ments, announcing his entire inability to hold
out two days longer, unless they are sent.
Stoncman’s cavalry, in the rebel rear, arc
said to have cut the Virginia Central Road,
also the Fredericksburg and Richmond Road,
near Milford Station Southwest of Chancel
lorsville, tearing up five miles of track aud
capturing a rebel supply train, thus cutting
off all Railroad communication with Rich
mond.
The TTorid’s correspondent says: The bat-
tie was resumed Monday, and was a most des
perate affair, The rebels made a scries of su
perhuman attacks at all poiuts, but were re
pulsed with terrific slaughter.
Our forces have destroyed the bridges
in the rear of the rebels across the Mattapony,
thus completely cutting off all retreat to
Richmond.
Gen. Sickles is reported killed, but it is not
credited.
A RUMOR FROM QEN. STONEMAN.
New' York, May s.—The 7bsF« Washing-
ton special says there is a rumor current that
Gen. Stoncman has captured Gordonsville.
THE MOVEMENT TO CHANCELLORSVILLE.
Tbe following resume of the movement
from Falmouth which ended in the gaining of
Chancellorsville by our right wing, will be of
Interest to onr readers.
the feint down the river.
On Monday, the 20th nit. the Divisions Of
Wadsworth and Doublcday were sent down
the Rappahannock (twenty miles) to Fort
Conway, and ordered to build au enormous
number of fires at night In the neighborhood,
to give the idea that a Large force was there
for the purpose of crossing. The bait took.
Stonewall Jackson hurried down the river
with 00,000 men to watch us, and there re
mained. The bulk of Wadsworth’s and
Douhleday’s Divisions were then withdrawn,
but the fires were assiduously kept up each
night by the remainder.
OF STONEMAN’S MOVEMENT.
A week before Stoncman was sent twenty
five miles above with a cavalry force, to break
the Orange and Alexandria, Virginia Central,
and Richmond and Fredericksburg Railroads,
in order to destroy the rebel communications.
In addition to tearing np rails and blowing
up bridges, he was to attack any cavalry force
he might hear of in his vicinity.
THE MOVEMEnT OF OUR TROOPS.
On Monday, the 27th inst., the troops com
menced a movement in force northward from
Falmouth.
The following were the troops thus thrown
forward;
sth Army Coups— Major General George 0.
Monde.
11th Army Corps— Major General 0. O. How
ard.
Arxx Corps— Major General Henry W.
Slocum.
These troops broke camp at Falmouth. The
orderto move was long waited for, and did
not come till' April 27, at four o’clock In the
afternoon* It was to move at five o’clock in
the morning.
THE START.
The men had breakfast at fonro’clock in the
morning. Attwenty-three minutes post five
they took up their line of march, ignorant of
its destination. The day was rainy and cold,
hut the men buoyant beyond measure. The
roads were almost Impassable in many places;
but still the man kept on till ordered to pitch
their camp for the night at Hartwood Church,
having marched twelve miles. Gen. Hooker
passed through our lines late in the afternoon
and was welcomed with deafening cheers.
CONDITION OF THE TROOPS.
As a proof of the condition of the troops
il is mentioned that in one of the brigades at
roll call before starting, only sixteen men, all
accounted for by surgeon’s certificates, were
absent.
The Eleventh army corps, under General
Howard was in the advance, the whole under
the command of the popular General of the
Twelfth corps—Slocnm.
The next day the troops marched to Grove
church, about twelve miles. Day rainy—®
roads bad. The pioneers worked hard, mak.
ing new roads in some places and repairing
others.
kelly’s ford.
The event of tills day was the building of a pon
toon bridge across Kclly'sFord- The engineer
corps were at work all night, and by morning
a substantial bridge -was formed, over which
passed in safety infantry, cavalry and teams.
The bridge vras crossed at five a. tn. on the
20th. Over the way is the town of Kcllys
ville (north fork of the Rappahannock), a
flourishing little place of some six dwellings,
quite a large town for this section.
A fight was looked for at the fords; bnt
onr cavalry rode down to the banks, and the
rebels very cautiously left them in onr pos
session, scampering to the adjacent woods
with wonderful celerity. The Eleventh, corps
reached Kelly’s Ford first, and Col. Bush
beck’s brigade was soon over. The remain

whoso only testimony was, that “ the enemy

ing, meet them again on the crest of a hill for
another display of the same style of fighting.
r.ERVAm ronn AND BBIDO3.
At noon of Wednesday our advance reached
Germania Ford, where the rebel* were
found busily building a bridge. A private
letter from & rebel officer, that fell into our
bands, explains the plan of Stnart in this
bridge over the Rapldan, to have been thns to
secure a safe and speedy crossing of the river
at that point swift and rocky, for the use-of
his forces, in a contemplated raid on onr
troops. But the bridge was not done, and the
rebels skedaddled, except eighty who Bcrreu
dertd.
CROSSING TOT BATH)AX.
Then came the task Tor the infantry. The
river was up to the arm-pits, rapid and rocky,
cartridge boxes were hoisted on the musket?,
Nothing was stripped off, and in they went.
Sime went down in the current, to be picked
up a dozen yards down stream, half drowned;
but all were jubilant, and filled the walley
with Ihcir shouts and laughter. After dark
the scene was magnificent. Iluge bonfires
were kindled, and their light danced with the
juocnluMms among the bayonets and on the
water, and wrought fantastic pictures on the
hillsides, while the lopg," dark column
Mrecmcd down from Sc wooes into the
gleaming currents and up the gorge beyond.
Slocum and Howard and William* and Pleas
anton were there, with their aids; artillery,
infantry and cavalry officers swarmed on the
banks, and everybody pushed forward, eager
to give assistance and pull out the nulucky.
Before morning all were across. It was feared
that the ammunition of the batteries would
be damaged; but no such misfortune .befell
them, and at daylight the cartridges were
found ready for use. A few of the infantry
lost the contents of thcircariridgc boxes; but
the amount was insignificant; but early in
the morning the advance was resumed.
LEAVING TUB RATIDAN BEHIND.
Cur force, on Thursday, April 80th, pushed
on toward Chancellorsville. Nothing of im
portance occurred till half-past twelve p. m.
w hen, at Wilderness, the enemy fired on them
from the woods bordering the road leading to
Culpepper. It was found to he a party of the
4th Virginia cavalry, under Robertson. The
affair was a very brief one, aud the same after
noon, the troops reached Chancellorsville, the
enemy still retreating, although h? had thrown
up a long line of rule piU in onr front. They
are strongly fortified two miles ahead, on the
Fredericksburg road, where wc hope to pay
them our respects in the momiug. The Fifth
corps here rejoined the others by a separate
route by Ely’s Ford, from Kelly’s Ford,
CHANCELLORSVILLE.
ChancelloißYille is made up of one house—a
large brick one; long in use in former years
as a tavern, which has given it the name. A
family of Chancellors still occupy it, but have
given up a portion to the Commanding Gen
era! as headquarters. 11 is tfn miles to Fred
ericksburg.
The Sth Pennsylvania cavalry, which led the
advance of the Fifth from the Rappahannock,
after a brisk skirmish drove the enemy from
his earthworks at Chancellorsville, andpnshed
on towards Fredericksburg, but, meeting two
brigades of the enemy, with artillery, on a bill
about six miles from the city, were compelled
to retire, but without loss. The rebel brig
ades of Mahoney and Posey fell back upon
Fredericksburg from the fords about 10 a. m.
THE CROSSING AT OTHER FORDS.
ThcFlrbt, Second and Third divisions left
camp on Tuesday, and moved to the vicinity
of Banks’ Ford, taking a circuitous route to
keep in the rear of the range of hills skirting
the left bank of the river. On arriving at
Banks* Ford, tbe enemy was found strongly
posted to resist the attempt to cross. Some 1
little demonstration was therefore made,
when the main body of the troops moved off
further up the river. The enemy were also
found in force at this p'&it, but daring the
night decamped from the formidable earth
works which they had constructed. During
the day the 50th New York (Engineer regi
ment) threw a pontoon bridge across a few
hundred feet below the ford. Upon Us com
pletion, the band of the Engineer brigade
marchfd over it, playing “In Dixit’s Land
I’ll Take my Stand.” Then passed over one
of the divisions, which was followed by a
continuous stream of troops until very late
in the night. "What the rebels intended to do
was something of a mystery, but the general
impression seemed to be'that they would mass
their army at a convenient point on their left,
and give battle ontside of their defences.
The above named divisions at once joined
the others at Chancellorsville. The road from
the United States Ford to Chancellorsville
runs through oak woods. The plank road and
the old turnpike offered a solid track.
THE ENEMY’S POSITION
at noon of the 80th, os indicated on the map,
extended on their left from Spoitsylvania
Court House to Banks’ Ford, and on their
right from Fredericksburg to a point below
the month of Massaponas Creek. The route
of our supply trains from Falmouth, byway
of the "Celtcd States Ford, was very circuit
ous and delayed the movements of troops
very considerably.
THE SITUATION* ON' THURSDAY, SO TIT.
Our brief resume of the operations since
Monday brings the time down to the date of
Gen. Hooker’s congratulatory order to the
Fifth, Eleventh, and Twelfth Divisions, which
in four days’ time marched sixty-four miles,
ft rded or crossed two streams, had two skir
mishes, captured a large number of prisoners
and lost but two men killed and one wound
ed. It seems that the rains have delayed this
splendid movement some days, for it was on
the 19th that orders were received to prepare
eight days’ rations and be prepared to march
at a moment’s notice. But two teams were
allowed to a regiment, men were required to
carry additional ammunition in their knap
sacks, and a mule train was to carry a still
further supply in panniers. This was the light
condit ion in which the army actually marched.
The rebels seemed to regard Hooker’s de
signs as being against Gordonsville and im
politic and likely to result disastrously, say
ing that the u Confederates arc making Gor
donsvillc stronger than Fredericksburg was,
and that we will discover it Is not the easiest
way of getting to Richmond.”
Washington, May 5.— A son of Ex-Senator
A G. Brown of Mississippi is among the rebel
prisoners. More than 3,000 are now here.
Philadelphia, May 5.—A passenger who
I arrived herefrom FortMonroc this afternoon,
says when he left there yesterday there was
flchtinc going on near Suffolk. A force of
bad been sent against* some
works the rebels were constructing. It was
understood the rebels had been driven some
distance, but no particulars given.
New Tore, May s.— This city is filled with
rumors, wluch are undoubtedly founded on
mere guess-work, as nothing is yet allowed
to come over the wires, by the censor at
Washington.
The Philadelphia Inquirer has a dispatch
purporting to be from "Washington, yester
day, suiting that a telegram from Lee to
Richmond was intercepted, calling for rein
forcements, and announcing his entire inabil
ity to hold out two days longer unless they
ate sent,
Stoneman’s cavalry Is m the rebel rear, add
i- said to have cut the Virginia Central and the
Fredericksburg and Richmond railroads, near
Milford Station, southwest of CbaucuUorsville,
tearing up five miles of the track, capturing a
rebel supply train, and thus catting off all
communication with Richmond.
FEOK CAIRO AAt? BELOW.
Cairo, May s.—Tbe steamer Lady Franklin’
arrived this morning from Vicksburg, bring
ing important news. She left there Thursday
night.
On Thursday morning, Gen. Sherman with
a fleet of transports, accompanied by several
gunboats,the new Choctaw in the lead,passed
up the Yazoo River, and made an attack on
the rebel batteries. At trine o’clock in the
afternoon several more transports followed
up, with troops on board*
The report is that Gen. Sherman has landed
at precisely the same place he landed when
he made the former attack. Each transport
is armed with three guns, in order to meet
any emergency that may arise.
Cannonading aud the rattle of musketry
was distinctly beard at Young’s Point from
9 o’clock Thursday morning till long after
night-fall.
I havo seen a gentleman who left New
Carthage—below Vicksburg—on ’Wednesday.
A verp heavy force had been landed on the
Mississippi side, eight miles abovo Grand

There certainly will be co-onerallnn with

Cincinnati, May 5,1863.
As Ipredieted the other day,Vallandlgham,
Inhis speech at Mount Vernon, was very vio
lent In denouncing the Government and the
orders of Gen. Burnside, counseling resistance.
Last evening Gen. Burnside dispatched a spe
cial train to Dayton, with a company of sol
diers, to arrest Voliondigham. The train
lift at midnight, and reached Dayton at v 3
o’clock in the morning. The party proceeded
to his house and sought admittance, which
was denied. They broke in the outside door,
when Valhvndigham appeared at an upper
wlndowand asked their business. About this
' time a gun was. fired from one of his upper
side-windows, which, It seems, was the signal
agreed upon for an alarm. It was followed
by a tingling of the fire-bells, to arouse and
assemble his friends, but the latter did not
respond In force to the call.
Yallatidigham waa immediately escorted, to
the depot, and was brought here, arriving in
this city at 6a. m. He was conveyed to the
military prison,* on Columbia street, and a
strong guard placed at the building. He has
been closely confined all day, aud although
some of his friends called and sought an inter
view, admission was declined. The regular
trains from Dayton have brought down a
number of his friends to-day, bat fiuding he
could not be seen, they have returned home.
Several prominent TJnion citizens of Day
ton, fearing trouble there this evening, came
down to-day and called on Gen. Burnside for
assistance.
A special train with soldiers was scut up at
T o’clock this afternoon, aud more ate ready
to go ns soon as it is necessary.
Vullandigham, It Is understood, will be
tried by court martial to-morrow. The
Mount Vernon speech will not be the ‘only
charge him. His arrest has given
great satisfaction here to the mass of our cit
izens, and the course of Gen. B. is unusually
approved, while the few who sympathize
with him have lost all courage and appear
Tcry,much dejected.
A dispatch was received from Dayton, this
evening, stating that a serious riot was in
progress at that place, but no particulars
have yet been received.

the Newport barracks. Troops have been
sent from Columbus, this evening, to quell
the Dayton disturbance.
The following particulars of the affair have
just been received: There has been a good
deal of excitement to-day but no disturbance
occurred till after dark. Groups of people
have congregated on the street comers dis
cussing the arrest of Mr. VaVkmdlgham, aud
denouncing the manner in which it was done.
A large number of wagons with Vallandig
bain’s friends came in to-day trom the coun
try and joined In the crowd.
At dark a company of between 500 and 600
persous proceeded to the Journal office, and
commenced hooting and yelling. Presently
some few bricks and stone were thrown break
ing in the windows and doors. Soon after
several pistol shots were fired Into the build
ing, and the torch was applied. The Journal
building was soon completely gutted, and the
llamcs spread to the adjoining stores.
. One man in the crowd was severely injured
by a brick thrown by a rowdy. The fire
spread to the bat store of Lcobcld, the cigar
store of Danson & Boonstein and the Gospd

ery stable, all of which were completely de
stroyed.
There is a minor that onebridgeonthe

Fighting Resumed at Suffolk,
Suffolk, May 4.—At 9 o'clock yesterday
morning, Gen. reck sent a force of infantry,
cavalry and artillery across the Nansemond
River, at Suffolk, to make a reconnois
sance. They advanced cautiously np the
old Petersburg turnpike, and when two miles
they encountered the enemy’s rifle pita, which
were thoroughly manned. The 80tU New
York and ISSth New Hampshire made a spir
ited and successful charge upon the rebel
works, and carried them after heavy resist
ance, when the enemy retreated and fell back
out of range, leaving their dead and some
wounded on the field. During this time the
draw-bridge battery and onr army gunboat
were playing upon the enemy, doing good ex
ecution among the sharp-shooters secreted
in the woods. In the afternoon onr troops
came npon a masked batteiy, situated two
and a half miles north of Suffolk, and at 4
o’clock Davis’ Massachusetts battery and the
gunboat Briggs commmenccd shelling it out.
After thirty “minutes the rebels returited the

Severe but Proper Letter from PTajor
Gen. Dix to Gen. tlcury A. Wise.
[Co rte spender ce of the New York Heralh]
Fortress Monros, May 2,1363.
Of late the rebels, under command of the
demagogue, Henry A. Wise, or, as latterly re
ported, Gen. Hood, have been making Incur
sions to Williamsburg, not with a view of
taking possession of toe town, but to harass
our troops. The last raid thus m ide by the
rebels resulted in the abduction of several ser
vants of African persuasion, and even *he
nurses watching the unfortunate inmates of
the Insane Asylum were taken-prisoners
and paroled, and had not Dr. Uetty, Medical
Director of the Fourth Army corps, milcr
whose charge the Asylum wasplaceddnringthe
raid, been absent from there, at the residence
of one of the secession inhabitants, whom be
treated for some sickness, he would likewise
have been declared a prisoner of war and pa
roled. Bat Major General Dlx, who may be
termed a second “ Old Hickory,” determined
to put an end to future raids of this kind, and
In the following letter, sent to Gen. Wise, he
has promulgated a second edition of his mem
orable message, “ If any one attempts to haul
down the American flag, shoot mm on.the
spot:”
MAJOR GEXKBAL DEC TO HENRY A. WISE,
Headquarters, Department or "Virginia. 1
Seventh Armt Conrs. ' v
.Fort Monroe, Va., April £B.lSCJ. I
To General Henry A. Wise, or the commanding
officer of the troops o:i the CliJckahomlcy;
Sis—The town of Williamsburg has been occu
pied, as you are aware, by the troops under my
command as a picket station or outpost of York
town. A largo portion of the inhabitants are
known cot to lie well disposed to the Government
of the United States. They have, nevertheless,
while quietly pnreuiog their domestic avocations,
been unmolested, aud havebeen permitted to sup
ply themselves with the necessaries and comforts
of life at Yorktown and Fort Monroe. The In-ane
Asylum at Williamsburg has been put under the
superintendence of an army surgeon, and Us three
hundred helpless inmates supplied, at the espouse
of the United States, with everything necessary to
their comfort, and with the remedialtreatmentthey
require. While cxcrcisinctheaeoflkes of human
ity, the troops at Williamsburg have been
several times attacked by yoar forces, not with a
view to gain aud hold possession of the place, and
to assume the guardianship which has been ex
tended to tbc Inhabitants and the tenants of the
Asylum by ns, but for the purpose of harassing i
those who were performing this generous service.
On the Slttnlt. your forces entcredand endeavored
to take possession of the town, occupying sev
eral houses and firing upon the troops, and in
this, as I am Informed, they were aided by
some of the Inhabitants, who have been
living for nearly a year nude? our protection.
More recently your forces entered the town and
took possession of it, placing our employees In tbo
Insane Asylum under parole, carrying off some of
the servants and depriving its Inmates of the care
to which they have been accustomed, aud which
their helpless condition renders indispensable.
Yon have, by withdrawing your forces, left the
Asylum again to our charity, and compelled Hsjor
Gen. Keyes, the commanding officer of the troops
at Yorktownand Fort Sbigruder. to supply it with
food to save the patients from starvation.
These raids under the peculiar circumstances
are In violation of every dictate of humanity.
Having no result, and apparently no object but
annoyance and a useless sacrifice of life, they are
also In violation of every principle of honorable
warfare. I have directed Major General Keyes to
reoccupy the town, and that the aggressions re
ferred to may cease, I give you notice in case of
any repetition of them;
1. That the inmates pf the asylum will be sent
to Jllchmond. and the United Status relieved of
the burden of their support.
2. That any house which may be taken posses
sion of for the purpose of firing upon the troops
stationed there will be razed to the ground, and
8. That any citizen of Williamsburg not belong
ing to a regularly organized corps, who shall be
found cooperating !u these attacks and rising in
arm's acain-t the occupying troops, will be put to
to death as a violator of the laws of civilized war
fare.
I am, very respectfully, yonr obedient servant,
John A. Drs, Major General.
As the above letter was transmitted to the
rebel lines only a day or two :igo, it is hardly
time to expect an answer yet. Wise or his
successor will have to submit the letter of
Gen. Dix to the rebel authorities at Richmond,
and returned to these headquarters.
That Major General Dix will do all he says
In hia correspondence may be taken as a gos
pel fact. Never was humanity more grossly
outraged than by the inhuman and brutal raid
of the rebels upon the devoted town where
three hundred poor, helpless, insane and
idiots received Inc beneficent care ot au in
dulgent and generous administration;
ana onr warm hearted General, than
whom no one is more humane,
will wreak a terrible vengeance on the
rebellious hordes, who neither respect nor
care tor the exercise of the finer feelings. If
Gen. Dix’a propositions arc accented, and
"Williamsburg Is vacated altogether by the en
emy, the town will be in as flourishing condi
tion as in times of yore. If it is not vacated,
the ancient site of William and Mary College,
the, Alma Mater of Virginia's best representa
tive*, will be a smouldering mass of ruins,
and the locality a desert.
On the 2Sth instant r.n election for members
of Congress lor this district will be held. The
district comprises the counties of Elizabeth
Ci’y, Accoxnac and Northumberland, and two
candidates are already in the field. One of
these is the Hon. Joseph Segar, present mem
ber of Congress, and his opponent Dr. GUle*
F. Watson, a resident of Drumond Town,
Eastern Shore, Va., and an uncompromising-
Union man. Both candidates sire at present
engaged in stumping their district, and both
are sanguine of success.

on Parkersburg and Marietta. Measures have
been taken to frustrate their designs.
