marktf ;
By arrivals from the Rappahannock
this morning we learn that Hooker com
pleted his crossing ut3 o'clock P, M. yes
terday and reached Falmouth, bringing all
his material away safely from his lat po
sition. While tfe were so unfortunate as
to lose some artillery, wo have lakeu at
least as many pieces as we havo lost.
Gen. Hooker, it is understood, esti
mates his losses in tlie late battles at
about ten thousand men, all told, killed,
voiindd and missir.g. It is believed that
tlie rebel losses (which their officers admit
were terrific) were nearly if not quite
double tins amount.
The rebel made a futilo attempt
or threo times on yesterday to shell
camps at Falmouth from the onnosite side
of the Rappahannock. They found their j
little piece of bravado was costing them
powder and shell to no purpose, and fi
nally abandoned it.

Movements of General Sedgwick.
We find the folio A-ing letter in the New
York World:
Washington, May C The capture of
Fredericksburg by Gen. Sedgwick was the
last principal itcnr of news from that lo
caliiy. After obtaining possession of the
rebel batteries he marched four miles on
the plunk road to Clmncellorsville. where
lie mci n large lorce or l ie enemy, aouot
less a nan of Lon.- .r.e. '. HivUion .ent in I
meet him from SuftMk. It appears that a
portion of the rebel army got between
Gen. Sedgwick and llie force menacing
Gibbons, who held possession of Freder
icksburg. Thus Lee was between Sed".
wick and Hooker, and Sedgwick in turn
between two parts of Lee's army. Gen.
Sedgwick had been reinforced by some
troops that had before been employed in
holding the heights east of Fredericks
burg, mid the enemy took possession of a
part of these d( sorted works. On Mons
day morning Gen. SedgwicK was attacked
near Burksford by a largo force of the en
em), superior in numbers to his own.
Tressed on front and men fought
bravely, but were finally compelled to re
tire. As this movement was about commen
cing the Vermont brigade charged furi
ounly and succeeded in driving
the Con'
federates offtha eround. It was a bloodv
diy for both sides, and the Federal com
mand had done nobly in maintaining
their ground against such numbers. A
retirement across tho river was determin
ed on, with a view lo recross al United
Mates Ford and endeavor to join Hook

er's main army. Accordingly at a little!

and as silently as possible the troons took

The slaughter ot the enemy in mis ac
tior, which occurred in close proximity to
Bunks' Ford, is without a parullel in the
history of warfare, considering the nuuibor
of rueu engaged. Whole brigades ot tho
rebels were wiped out; but their force
wjs so many times greater than that at
the command of Gen. Sedgwick that it
was impossible that he could hold his po
sition, und he therefore concluded to ex
tricate himself by recrossing the river.
this hazaidous expodietit was i tlompl
!ed and successfully carried out" beta-een
midnight and Iwo o'clock on Tuesday
morning. The enemy hold positions with
their artillery, raking our bridgoj over
whieli Sedawick was uliRPd to move In
men, necessarily creating some confusion
in our ranks as tho columns moved over,
and causing considerable loss oflife. They
also prcsiod hotly upon his rear, and bar
aBsed him incessantly. But he succeeded
in getting his force over as above stated in
wonderfully good order.
Un Monday morning at daybreak the
rebels obtained a position on the hills on
the south bank of the Rappahannock,
scarcely two miles below the United
States ford, and commenced a vigorous
slielling of our trains lying on the north
sida of tho river, close to the ford. Sever
al men were injured by these shells nod
one or two killed.
Some of the shells entered a hospital on
two! the south bank of the liver, killing sever
our I al of tho patients. One poor fellow was
iust reading a lottcr from home when a
elicit explodod close by him, tearing oil'
theentire upper portion of his head, kil
line him instantly. A panic was immi
nent among our teamsters, and would
have been general and disastrous but for
the stoppage of hostilities by the enemy.
The Washington SUr referring to the
attack on Sedgwick, says :
Our loss was about 4,000 killed, wound
ed end missing, making the total bss of
Sedgwick's and Gibbons' commands (in
cluding those lost on the previous day)
about 5,000, cr half the whole loss of Hoo
ker's army in the four day's fighting. On
that (Monday) night Sedgwick recrossed
his own and Gibbons' foreo to the north
bank of the Runpahannock.
It is evident iiore thai the Confederates
played their old gamo of massing their
troops in crushing force on our exposed
'. ... t" , r ... .
points with rapid change of UMltlon, and
that after throwing themselves with all
their weight on Hooker, they with great
celerity moved oft" to repeat the blow up
on Sedgwick's detached force ; and this
fact explains that mysterious silence in
front of Hooker, while they were thut oc
cupied with Sedgwick.

Without needloss repetition of what we
have already published, and without at
tempting to supply any deficiency iu our
presont information with fancies, we will
siate that the enemy commenced crossing
al Fredericksburg, and skirmishing there,
or, Wednesday morning, that it soon bes
came perfectly apparent that the strength
of looker's attack was invested in n flank
movement, designed to turn our left and
gain our rear ; that Gen. Lee responded
to this new line of approach of the enemy,
and met him in the vicinity of Chancel'
lorsville, ten miles northwest of Freder
icksburg. On Friday evening heavy skirmishinc
commenced resulting in driving the enes
my back for several miles.
On Saturday the battle commenced ear
ly. We leirn from Gen. Lee's dispatch

while two of Lonjjslreet's divisions "peg
ged away" at him in front. Thus caught
betwoen the upper and the nether mill
stone, the enemy suflerod very severely,
as may well be imagined. Five thousand
prisoners are represented a9 having been
taken on that day, besides an enormous
list of killed and wounded. Hooker's ar
my, driven by Jackson, were pressed down
from the Wilderness to new Chanccllors

all his positions, and made for the river
by his flank. Here ho was crossing at
last accounts, with our victorious army
pressing upon his heols. Of the disasters
which attended his crossing, under such
circumstances, it would be mere specula
tion for us to speak. Wo wait for the
This great victory is, as usual, paid fori
with the mood of heroes and the tears of
tho Confederacy. The severe wound n
ceived by General Jackson will excite uni
versal solicitude. Tho manner in which
he habitually exposes his person, when
guiding the battle, is to well known that
the public anxieties are always enlisted.
No life is dearer to tho people none is
nioie freely hazarded. We learn that the
wound he received on Sunday was in the
loft arm, and it is asserted that amputa
tion has already boon resorted to. If the
prayers ot a whole people nviy be ans
swered, our dear heru leader, mutilated as
he ia. will long live to lead our armies and
to defend his country with his rare skill
and matchless prowess, from tho fury of
her foes.
As to Hooker, tho lowest dcplh of hu
miliation which has yet overtaken a Yan
kee Commander in Chief is his. Read
the teitimony which we publish to day,
and which he gave before tho committee
of Congress, and see how indelicately and
ungonerously he acted towards his broth
er officers of high rank; hov he always
disparaged them, and never failed to mag
nify himself. His testimony was a bid for
the position which he holds. Ho gained
it; but in doing so ho dug for himself, In
case of failure, s pit deeper than any had
sounded before him. Who is thero to
mourn for him now? He has found no
strength in his arms ; his own compatriots
will show him no mercy in his woe. Mc
Clollan and Burneide would scarce be hu
man if they did not feel a secret joy at his
failure and downfall.

This shows that the banks of Peunsyl

over all their capital, over Five uad Ono
Half Millions of Dollars, besides, at the

and other leaks, the specie fund will bo

will havo also 10,01)0,00(1 of demand sioto.
These we will need to pay our part of tho
debt. Now let us see about how much
our part of that would be if our troubles
were to cease now, say iwentyshighl
llundrod Millions some put it over aud
some undor, but I think this a low esti
mate. Now the apportionment mude by
Congress for the Twenty Millions of Inter

portion men t, Pennsylvania would have to
pay over oneseventh and not quite the
one-cizhth, but take it at one. seventh aud
our part of tho debt would be $100,000,
000 to which add 3,000,000 bounty and
relief, and 40,000,000 State debt. Over
sixteen times the whole banking capital
of Pennsylvania, now can any person
study the above and ever ex poet to see a
metalic currencj in his day t vVby, sirs,
it appears as if we all had taken passage
on the fatal train, and the officers hud run
her under a full head of eleam uulil we
have come to the down grade she is run
ning at full speed, and tbe engineer refu
ses to reverse (ho action but like Samssn
will make a martyr of himself by "lying in
the ruins.
Now, sirs, if any person will make the
foregoing his study for twenty-fo'i r hours,
if he is honest, I think ho will be for
pence as well as me. I am for Lincoln's
motto ''you cannot fight alrrnys, and the
question or cause of difference will be to

when Gen. Ilooker hod rtturned to his old
position north of that river. We have no
definite account of the loss on either side.
Our loss is variously estimated at from
10,000 to 15,000. Tho loss among the
Pennsylvanians judging from the long
lists of names already published seems
to have been in excess of any other troops.
