The Committee also passed the following reso
lution unanimously, viz:
Resolved, That it be recommended to the
Loyal citizens of Pennsylvania, without dis
tinction of party, to organize, in each Election
District of the State,Union Leagues,for the pur
pose of sustaining the Government in suppress
ing this causeless and wicked rebellion, which
now seeks to divide and destloy the Republic.
The Last Ruse of the Sympathizers.. I
Having afforded the slaveholding traitors all
the means and all the sympathy in their posses
sion, to ensure the success of rebellion, and
haviog failed in every attempt in that direction,
the lders of the copperhead democracy are
about to attempt a new dodge, to practice an
original ruse to ensure the success of their machi
nations for slavery. The cry now raised is, that
"the Republican party must be put down ;". the
"Abolitionists must be exterminated ;" which
means, of C MOW, that the freemen of the North
must yield to the slaveholders of the. South. To
put down the Republican party—to crash on
Republican principles and destroy Republicen
institutions, is just what the slaveholders are
battling for, just what they have sworn to do,-
just what they , have deluged the land with
blood, and startled the nation with rapine, ar
son and murder to accomplish. If it had not
been for Republican principles and institutions
this rebelliOn never would have been inaugu
rated, 'because in the absence of such . principles
and inatitntiens, the slaveholders would haVe
had it their own Way. Slavery rebelled against
freedom. Society as organized in the South,
representing there the worst feature of aria;
tocratic corruption, an aristocracy which
denies all recognition to labor, rebelled
against liberty as it exists in the frier
States, where labor is equal to capital, wh*e
there are no distinctions except between
virtue and viee, and where freedom is ~,reg
arded EISA ptlippsB,an4 not toyed as a . theory.
The Republican , pa;ty was not 'organized so
much to oppose the institution of 'ilavery, rui it
was to increase : _the spread, Of, freedom. Its
principles never contemplated contest with
slavery where State rights seemed to recognize
and dignify its barbarous usages, But those
piinciples sought progress wherever there was
sufficient territory belonging to the Government
outof which to organize and erect new, porn
monvirealths. It was the success in this progrims
and such organizations, , which impelled slavery,
as it exists in, the American „Stat'es; to antago
nize freedom as it also in the same.
States. The Republican party is the only polit
ical organization ever formed in this country,
which has fully made itself the chiinpfon of
freedom. All otlier political organizations here
tofore oinow existing, have had Weir Covenants
with slavery, Frd are therefore more or lessTre
sponsible for. this rebellion. Had these cove
nants never existed, encouragement to treason
would never .:_have been afforped. Had the
institution of Slivery been made dependant
upon its own merits instead of - being bolstered
by the special legislative privileges which all
parties but the Republican willingly 'extended
to the institution, the disgrace which naturally
belongs to the system, the corruption which it is
hourly breeding, and the evil influences which
it daily distils, would have destroyed it and
carried it down to hell, where it telongs, more
than tralf ii:centerrshice7 .- It has not a sin
gle energy te,Siiead itsown' vile influences It
has not a single merit.to command respect.. It
'ltvdependant altogether upon special privilege
for existence. - Deprive it of this, -add we invoke
its doom immediately',
—ln view of these facts and, arguments, it is
not strange that the original allies of slavery
and the first sympathizers with treason against
the Natiunal Government, should now 'demand
the dissolution and destruction of the Republi
can party. It is tt• e only party which has main
tained its organization, and still opposed trea
son. The Republican in the Nortli, is no more
zealous hi endeavors, no more liberal in W
s =laces to 'pit down rebellion, than the Re
publican in the South.. One sentiment animates
both, one desire controls and intensifies their
actions. They are tor the - Union r for the Gov
ernment, for freedom. Is it any. vvonier, then,
that the sympathizars with' immix desire the
demolition of such a party re - it anrprising
that those who have "done all - in - ttretr - power to
insure thesuccess of the rebellion, and:failed,
should, now seek the destruction of the only
'obstacle in the way of that success. No other
party can or will oppose treason , but the Re-
putdicari party.' Such opposition cam never
_emanate from , the Democracy,- because its inter
ests in slavery, which is the life-giving:element'
of treason, elcied those which it haMin free
d*. In fe:ceitie opposed to freedom because
that'prificirile is inimical JO medeng,Democracy

is accomplished, we may indeed look for the

Who are Right

The rebel sympL, y sympa
thize with the rtbolliou ; the copperheads deny
th a t th e y co operate with the Southern traitors;
the Democrats among us deny that there is a
party or any considerable number at the North
who are favorable to the rebAs and are try in,;
to aid and encourage them, and especially deny
that the leaders of the pre7ent Democrarc

the men or the party that would do this—

The developeraents made the other day by the
publication of Lord Lyons' letter, show very
plainly who are sympathizers with and trying l
to aid the rebels in this col:tatty._ A few weeks
ago a certain English nobleman—the -Marquis
of Hartington—was in New York, and while I I

which he wore a secession badge. He has
returned to England, and recently made a
speech, in which he said that he "found at the
North a party favorable to the rebek, ,and who co

[From the Washington Star.]
Since the first edition of to-day's Star went to
prom, we bave further important news of the
of the events past eventful week on the field
where General Hooker operates. General
Stoneman's force was divided into three
columns, one of which, that moving in the
direction of the Richmond and Fredericksburg
railroad, he commanded in person through from
Hanover Junction down to withia five miles of
Richmond—made by sub-division under the
command of Col. Davis. One of the three col
umns commanded by Brig. Gen. Averiil, after
crossing the Happahar.nock at Kelley's Ford
pushed on to Brandy Station, where it met the
enemy's pickers and drove them back iu a
short skirmish. It then pushed on to Calpep
per Court House, where Generals Fits Hugh
and William Henry Lee were found with a rebel
force of perhaps five hundred cavalry, which
fled precipitately back across Ceder moun
tain at Culpepper Court House. Geaeral Awar
d, captured a lot of rebel Government flour
and then pushed on after the retreating Lees,
following them to the Rapidan station, where
they burned the railroad bridge, over whish
they retreated after a smart fight, in which they
ban Col. Reeser, late of the United States Army,
who • commanded one of their b igades
Oar joss there wee inconsiderable, and they
lost several killed, besides Col. Raeder, and 31
prisoners, whom General Averlll brought back
with him. .1 he object of Averill's expedition
s , ems to have bees to destroy this bridge over
the Rapidan. which the enemy, in their panic,
did for him. After proceeding as far as
Camp Court• House, he returned with his
force to' the main army, joining it at
Chancelloreville, on Sunday last. Another
column of Stoneman's force, under com
mand, of Gen. .Buford, which left the Rap
pahannock at the same time, pushed on
towards Gotdoneville and positive informa
tion has, just been received, announcing its
success id cutting the Central railroad between
Gordonsville and Ricbmold, and also be
tween Gordonsville and tlharlottesville; thus
completely stepping railroad communication
in any direction, out from Lee's main
army and breaking up for the time being
the enemy's facilities for forwarding sup
plies•or reinforcements to it from any direction.
According to the Richmond papers of yesterday
Lougstreet in person joined Lee some days ago,
but was accompanied by none of the troops
with which he had been operating beftire Suf
folk. We regret to say that Brig. Gen. A. W.
Wlaipple,who was ivonnded in the recent engage
ment in • which Gen. Berry was killed, died
yesterday at 2 o'clock, e. w. The latest infor
mation from the field states that the ag.
gregate rebel loss in the four days fighting
has I een far larger than' oats, which is
natural enough, as they were necessarily in
every cas s the attacking party, and followed
their , old practice of 'massing. their troops
very heavily against the points-they selected to
assail, thus presenting• numerous opportunities
for our artillery, to mow them down in great
- numbers. The Richmond papers of yesterday
laim that Lee took in the engagement
of Saturday 5,000 of the eleventh army corps
as prisoners. This is the corps that behaved so
badly, but the number of en-toners taken from
it is nothing like this number. It is but fair to
the elegenth corps, to say-that they retrieved
their reputation measureably by good conduct

A heavy column of rebels, under General
Early, attacked the 2d and 6th d: rps under Gen

and, after an engagement of several hours' du

several guns in postion, 'and comtnenced-shell

Thy pontoona were taken up, and' the rebels

enemy can remove him. , •
Thelosses onboth sides have been very heavy.
The rain of y&terday and to-day Will cause a
temporary_ cessation of hostilities, but active
operations will be,reatimed as soon as possible
Gen. Sedgwick has moved up tb the United
States ford, and is messing to-day. He will
join Gen. Hooker immediately, and proceed to
the battle field with his two corps, which are
comparatively fresh, and in good fighting trim.
A telegram from. headquarters announces the
fact-that the entire rebel cavalry force, under
General Stuart, is concentrated on our right,
anditis evidently the design of General Lea to
turn that 'flank of our army and operate on
the'ntiper portion of the Rappahannock, but
thia • movement will be promptly checked.
We have a rumor from headquarters that
'General Stoneman las gone throngh! with' his
work successfully,,but not without considerable
loss. ' No trains are running on the railroad

The following appears in the National inteili

Official information received at the War Da
partro.ent last evening authorises ns to state
that Oen. Hooker, alter waiting on the

of the battle by the enemy, recrossed the Rap

in part from the great and sudden rise of the
Virginia rivers in consequence of the recent
heavy rains threatening our supplies.
We do tot learn that Gen. Hooker was ap
prised before making this movement of the
success which is alleged to have attended the
operations of Oen. Stunernan in breaking the
rebel communications with Richmond. If this
fact had been known to him, assuming it to be a
factit may be doubted whether Gen. Hooker
would have deemed it necessary to take a stop
which must tend to deprive him of some, at
least, of the advantages resulting from_ Henry
Stoneman's co-operative expedition.

The rain fell in torrents sweeping away the
bridges and threatening the pontoons.
The river rose rapidly. and one of the pon
toon bridges was taken to lengthen the others.
Pine boughs were spread upon the -pontoons to
prevent noise, and at midnight the troops com
menced falling back.
The first corps crossed and are now nearly
all over. The third is in entre.nehrnenbi to
cover the retreat. It is hoped the army will
reach this side before the rebels discover the
retreat, but the cannonading has commenced
quite fiercely at the•front, and a desperate bat
tle is nor. la-probable. • The roads are horrible.
Our sick are lying in them, but the ambulanc a
are coming up to remove them.

The enemy has evidently massed his army

but the high water will frustrate this move

he held a consultation with his Generals, in
which it was urged that a longer stay would
prove unsafe for the army, as the rain is falling
heavily, , and the river raising rapidly. •
Fardeorrna, May 6, 10 A. N.-8 bridges have

A force has been sent down to oppose them.
Everything is quiet on this side. The river
has risen over ten feet and is still rapidly

direction of United States Ford.
The Trawls extra says that at daylight 013,
Monday the rebels shelled onr trains at United
States rord, which served to increasee - General
Hooker's fears, and the longer he delayed the
