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 If the Repnblican.party be diebanded,lle army ' alul.-navy (would necessarily follow n suChit -dtssolutiern- It -would not.be necessary for tree = v s m,to strike another bleticitaidause there would toll nothing tmOppbse its triumph.%.„Traltors couldithin dietate'their own tert.us !of settle ment, because there would be no organization to look after the interests of the Government. Destroy the Republican party! When that is accomplished, we may indeed look for the triumph of treason ! Who are Right nathizer.; deny tivit lhr 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 party are doing so. But how canes it that disinterested parties or interested foreigners' think and say differently ? Eagl Ind &Dies that she sympathizes with and aids the rebels ; but we know that she does both. Of course the men or the party that would do this— would sympathize with and try to favor- :010 rebels, would deny it. This is to be expected. 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 there attended a ball, a sort of &wish ball, at 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 operate cordially with them" Now, who consti r • tute this party ? Who are - the men ? And what "party" is it ? Is any one at a'loss to know ? Are they not the men who tried to in-, trigne with Lord Lyons ?—who divalgell to him their plans, their programme, and tried - ttidiaw. i • him into it, and get him to aid them n bring ing about "intervention" - by the European! powers in behalf of the rebels and against the Government? Are they not the men and the., party that are now doing all they can to oppeeet the Government, and to hinder and retard thee. war, to bring abant an "armistice " and seine sort of a "peace," before' the Government shall succeed in putting down and crushiag,ortt the rebellion? And is not thie being "favera t ble to the rebels and co operating with ihem ?'f Surely, with the testimony of Lord Lyons and the Marquis of llartington, along with what we all know, and what we see and hear daily; ,there.can be no doubt as to,the men and",par ty" that may be regardect.as "favorable to the rebels."

[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 m Monday and yesterday, showing that their bad behavior previously was from one of those panics that will sometimes overtake the best troops. Special Dcapatches to the Pearl' Weentecroxi, May 6—P. as. Your correspondents at Felmonth send the following highly •important intelligence from General Hooker's army this mottling : FALaallTH i 'llay 6—s. M. A heavy column of rebels, under General Early, attacked the 2d and 6th d: rps under Gen eral Sedgwick, near FrederiCksherg, on Monday, and, after an engagement of several hours' du ration, drove our forces back and reoccupied the works, which had been partially destroyed by oar troops. Appreciating the position in which he was placed General Sedgwick. at once determined ao ter:rose the Rappahannock by the ponsbon beldges below Fredericksberg. Yesterday moreing, after all-of our troops had arrived safely on this side, the rebels got several guns in postion, 'and comtnenced-shell ing the pontoon bridges, but did. little damage. Thy pontoona were taken up, and' the rebels opened with some tvienty-six field pieces from Fredericksburg, and re occupied the city in considerable force. General Hooker was promptly apprised of this movement, and approved of it. He order ed the p left wing of his army to advance, and after `a spirit d contest carried the field bat aeries of the rebels on the left, said to contain twenty-six guns, andknown as the Washington• The wagon and moat of the can 'lenient were captured.' Gen. Hooker . telegraphs, that he had an ad mirable position,,from which no force of the 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 frame Richmond, and it is , believed that Gene- ral Stoneman has destroyed that road: It is also reported tha GeneralSteneman has opened, ceanntinieation with - General Keyes, or spoken_ a gunboat on the Pamunkey river, bat. of air tide we know-nothing positively - The fa.ctahat the rebel cavalry is nementrated on our right would indicate the entire success and safety. of General Stoneman's expedition. . There was no inaportant collision yesterday, and will probably be gone today.

Everybody is hopeful; and there seems Lobe but little doubt that the fighting here will continue until both armies are exhaused. It is, there- fore, a question of st7ength and determination. lien. Hooker is tall satA;qine and confident of ittory. Several of his plaus h.teve miscarrieJ, t•ut fur this he was fully prepared. Our army lies is the uld position about Chan eellorsville, and oar communications with the river are well guarded. I=l ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCHES LATEST FROM THE FRONT. I=n=l Our Forces Withdrawn Across the Rappahannock THE RIVER RAPIDLY RISING BRIDGES SWEPT AWAY -.._--. RETURN OF GEN. STONENAN'S FORCES =I From the National haielligeneer Wasumaron, May 7. The following appears in the National inteili gamer this morning : Official information received at the War Da partro.ent last evening authorises ns to state that Oen. Hooker, alter waiting on the _rain near Chnicellorsville, on Tuesday, for a renewal of the battle by the enemy, recrossed the Rap pahannock on the evening of that day, influ enced by prudential motives springiog,doubtlew 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. jl4on the New Fork World] Nsw YORK, May 7.—The World bas issuedan rata with the following: The Richmond papers of the sth, state that Stoneman's cavalry have destroyed all the bridges between Richmond and the Rappahan. nozk, and torn up the railroads, cut down the telegraphic wires, and ventured within a few miles of Richmond, consequently no communi cation can be bad with (Jen. Lee's army. Official intelligence from Stoneman states that after the above achievements, he deployed his immense cavalry force many miles, forming a line of observation to detect the approaching rebel reinforcements. Reinforcements are pressing down to General Ecoker; who will thus outoumb:r any force brought against him. Rooker was forced . across the Rappahannock in =sequence of the superior force and the superior generalship of Lee. - A great number of wounded have fallen into the bands of the enemy. Oar dead on the battle field of Sunday are still unburied, and the wounded are undoubtedly dying in great ;zumbers. It la rumored that Lee mused hid army on our right and that Gen. Hooker will femme i- ately change his base of operations , but where is nnhnown. Gen. Hooker Is much disheartened, but there is hope yet. ANO TEIER ACCOUNT Abe. New. York' Scald has lamed an extra containing a letter dated United States ford, Kay 6th, 8 a. a., saying yesterday 4 morningthe trains were all (Rd 'rot back to camp and by dark all the wagons, extra mules, &c. were at Falinuut h. The wounde were hast ily remov al o W shingtoo , leaving notbing on the other side but the infantry and artillery. 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. There was no fighting yesterday of any con avionics. The enemy has evidently massed his army on our right with the probable view of crossing above and attacking us on the flank and rear; but the high water will frustrate this move ment. Three pontoon trainsare down near Hamilton, and it is feared that the rebels will make a demonst. ation across the river below Predericke burg. den. Hooker is much depressed.

N.-8 bridges have been swept away on the railroad from Agate 1 last night. Building parties were at work all night and the trains are .)ow running again. 1 It is rumored that the rebel cavalry has crossed over'upon the northern neck and ie ad -Inman cautiougly towards this plane.. 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 rising. Heavy cannonading is heard in the 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 lees was he able to advance. The correspondent ohms thus: "the army is safe with 10,000 fine men in its ranks and a much larger number. unfit for duty. The heavy rains have seriously impaired the health of the men who were without shelter. The tents were left behind and many had lost their knapsacks. ITANT YORK, May 7th.—,Thn Tannic nays that Gar.
