now seeks to divide and destroy the Republic.
A Drunkard's Excuse.
John A Magee, publisher of a small paper in
Bloomfield, Perry county, represented said
county in the House of Representatives during
the last session of the Legislature, and on his
return home, certain bemocrats, as he says,
declared that he had neglected to send them
documents. In order to avobi telling the truth,
he assured them that be sent every man the de
sired documents, bat that the failure to receive
them must have been the fault of the postmas
ter at Harrisburg. This is an easy way of get
ting out of a difficulty ; and this John A. Magee
knows thathe was telling a wilfuianddeliberate
falsehood when he made this - assertion. He and
his friends know that he was often so beastly in
toxicated that he was unable to perform his offi
cial duties, and thus disgraced the seat to which
his constituents had elected him. When the
Legislature adjourned, he left a bag full of
documents on and under his desk ; and when
he was asked by one of the officers of the House
what should lie done with them, he ieplied that
he would be back some time and address them.
They were lying in the same position about a
week since, and we understand that this John
A. Magee has not returned as yet to direct them.
The charges made by this same individual in
regard to the Investigating Committee, are
equally false. Every sober member_of the Leg
islature knew that they were instigated by
drunkards and men who sell their votes on al
most every occasion ;-arid that the report, made
by the political eneuties-,,0f the postmaster, exon
orated him completely. But we presume this
John A. Magee-was too drunk to comprehend
that report when It was made to the House by
the committee, and then and there unanimously
adopted. We therefore publish a copy of a let
ter banded to the postmaster, written by the
chairman of the investigating committee, who
is himself a strong political opponent, and
transmitted by Mr. Rowland to the Postmaster
General, in explanation to that department why
he had asked for a copy of the postmaster's ac
count. If this article should reach Mr. Magee
in his sober hours, we demand a full and une
quivocal retraction of. the charges he made.
Here is 'the letter of Mr. Rowland, viz :
HOUSE OF RBFASSIDITATITIO, Pa ,
April 14th, 1863.
HON. MONTOONRRY Buis, Posiinager General:
The committee appointed by the House of
Representatives to examine the accounts of the
postmaster of this city with the House, (certain
charges having been made against him,) have
unanimously reported it correct and ordered it
to be paid.
I may add that the majority of the committee
were opposed to the postmaster
G. H. ROWLAND,
Chairman of Investigating Committee.
When an Ohio Gfand Jury, . concocted the
base plan of disgracing a loyal Ciemmonweelth
by:indicting a loyal Governor, the secesh or
gans of that and other States were silent in
reference to the ou:rage. The offence of Gov.
Tod was his zeal for his country. He bad
humiliated a blatant traitor, and diagram' a
favorite of the assassins of the South, in the
person of one Dr. Olds, a most infamous and
intolerant advocate of treason and slavery, who
should not only have been arrested, but
should have been hung. On this indictment,
the sheriff of the county within whose limits
this disgraceful transaction occurred, was die
patched to arrest Gov. Tod ; and after he had
been taken in charge, he appealed to the. Su
preme Court of the State, which set him 'at
liberty, on his giving bail to appear before the
traitors who procured his arrest. Instead of
complaining of the outrage or resenting the
insultlo the State in the. person of its chief
officer, the seoeah organs throughout Ohio and
other. States approve and chuckle over it as,
- a - great thing. No doubt many of them would
rejoice to have that drunken old traitor and
rebel, Letcher, who calls himself Governor of
Virginia, send a Sheriff and posse over into
Ohio to carry off Governor Tod, or some other
loyal officer for violating the fugitive Slave
Law: They would probably assist hinxin doing
it. They are just the men forsuck a purpose.
—Within a few daya, an open and a noto
rious sympathizer with treason was arrested at
his home to Ohio.- -He was taken in charge by
authority of the highest power in the lanit4 He
was arrested because he was known to be a
traitor by his acts, atidrbecause he had frequently
avowed himself such in his speeches. What is
the result? The veryjournala Which chuckled over,
th 6 arrest of a loyal Governor—which justified
a Giand Jury in going out of its way to disgrace
itself and its State—which approved of the ar
rest of a man who was known to be acting
conscientiously in the defence of his Govern
ment—these journals now disapprove of the
arrest of a traitor like Vallandigham. Thq Tory
Organ, which had not a word to write or print.
in denunciation of the outrage perpetrated by
the arrest of Governor Tod, is furious this morn
ing, because the traitor Vallandigham has been
put in arrest. What comment can we make ou
such a difference ? None, certainly, except to
po . nt to the fact, that the distinction thus
sought to be made by such journals as the Tory
Organ is the best evidence we can offer of their
affinities and sympathies with treason. And
the proof has not only been conveyed of this
single fact. In a thousand other ways, by
speech and deed, such organs and men have
been manifesting their treason. Tney are
against this Government, and not against the
administration. This is their true position.—
Had they the courage, they would show it in
deeds more manly than in the mere difference
which they seek to make between the arrest of
a loyal Governor and a known copperhead
Our Aval/able Force:
With no desire or intention to find fault with
any one in power, and with no disposition to i
exaggerate mistakes or criticise short-comings;
we still are forced to admit, that the error of our
entire operations against the traitors has betn
that of hot calling out oar whole available force.
The men in power at Washington have had a bit
ter conspiracy to contend with—they have bad
the entire influence, sympathy and aid of Euro
pean powers to counteract—they have had spies
in the shape of loud mouthed friends in the
various departments at Washington to fins' rate
--and they have had a malignant party of po
litical antagonists in the loyal States to appease
and conciliate. No men in power ever were
asked to assume such responsibility. No Gov
ernment ever was placed in such danger, with
so much to defend it and so little to preserve it,
with so much at its command and so little really
at its service, to maintain It from entire dissolu
tion. With the force that is now in the fieid,we
can never conquer all these obstap es to our peace
and perpetuity. We cannot whip an armed re
bellion,coanterruct the influence of the world,and
put a stop to the machinations around us, unless
we call out our entire available force, make a sol
dier of every man that is capable of bearing
arms; find a duty to perform for those who
cannot enter the field as fighting men, and
thus bring our entire available force against
the rebenon. We should stop all business--
tuspend all speculation—postpone all private
euterprises— and thus let every man take the
field against the rebels. In this manner we
could end the war before the summer is over.
We could end it effectuiliy. Treason would be
so completely extinguished, that the peace of
the country would be forever protected from
like insurrectionary invasion.
—lf our suggestion in'this connection is not
deemed practicable, no man will at least'deny
that we, io the loyal States,. have not yet
properly felt the importance of this struggle.
i 'The people of the South are all intensified on
, the subject of their confedemoy. They make
all interests bend to the_'.onti' idea of success.
They allow no other enterprises but those which
contribute to the efficiency of their arms to en
gage their ettention. This we have not dOne,
either as a people or a Government: We have
suffered ourselves to be divi led by partizans—
we have permitted antagonism fir society to
interfere with our duty to the Government—
we have encouraged demagoguism to thwart the
on the r. lea that ,the freedom
of speech or the liberty of the press was of more
importance than the vigor or majesty of official
power. These are our real sources of disaster,
and until these are abated, we must suffer.
While our brethren in the field are strag
gling, and suffering and perishing, we should
be doing all in our power to encourage and aid
them. Unless we are united, we can never
conquer. For the reason we have stated, that
we have not.only an armed rebellion in the
South, but all' Europe to contend with, we
must go to work —we must all unite, we must
all fight to save the Government. Earnestly.
and sincerely, then, we trust that the Govern
_ment will summon every Men to the field, who
is capable °Cheering arms. In the face of such
a summons, we will b " -able to tell who are, the
friends of the Government and who are in favor
of crushing out treason.

In the course of the rebe' news detailing the

Court House, it is stated, that
"7hey were evidently guided by some one familiar

is well known In Richmond "
—Who is be? Well, it waiters not who he
is. The fact alone is cheering, that there is
one man in the South, willing to guide a divi

As intimated by The Brent yesterday, General

fighting, was forced to abandon his position and
put his troops in motion across our pontoon

advised that this movement was executed in a
skilful aud sAtlifactory Manner. once across
the river General Sedigivick moved up= the
North bank on Monday, to the vicinity of
United States ford, for the purpose of forming
a junction with General Hooker's main army,
or for covering a retrograde movement of the

Previous. to crossing the aßaPPahalldPekt last
week;; General Hooker obtained information to
the effect that but a small force of the rebel
aruirifiere:encarnped'do the vicinity of Fr( der
icksburg, compared to that which had been
maintained near that point during the winter.
He had most encouraging reports from Gen.
Stoneman's flyingr polumn, and he conceived
and matured an admiritble plan of crossing the
river, and capturing the entire rebel force
north of the 'Pamunkey river.
Upon crossing the river it was discovered that
the enemy were in much greater force than had
been previoinly estimated, but Gen. Hooker
pushed on, 'driving- the enemy before hint at
every point doring , n'aeries of sanguinary con
flicte, which terminated fiat Sunday in favor of
Gen. HoOker., On that day it became plainly
manifest, that the enemy was bringing up very
heavy canning of reserve troops, and was pre
paring to make'a. desperate and pourerfak on
slaught upon , out, position_ at Chancellnritille,
and at the same time cauting,hia entire cavalry
force upon our' right wing threatening to turn
it with some prospect of success.
Gen. Hooker, although to sonifaiditent prepar
ed for battle, receival and reviewed the Intel
ligencelient-in by his corps and division coin_

communications from 2 44 16 niktveromtikl In.
mcvand,aa,a z trentendous rdizirlad theaftet in,
he was apprettenaimthat the river would be
awdlien hiegatmaplit,ite impassable in case
of a heavy reverse to our arms. Indeed our
ammunition was almost exhausted ; the
troops had nearly consumed the rations
served to them for eight days subsistence,
and the consumption of both stores aid
and ammunition was far grittier than tte
supply. In order to leave our army as free to
operate against the enemy as possible. Gen.
Hooker took no ammunition train fiCrUiti the
river—nothing but caissoLs furni,htd our ar
tillery. It was designed to have a large train
of pack mules to follow tle army with supplies
of all kinds. but this channel was found par-
tially impr‘ cticable, and really inefficient for
so large an army, engaged with the enemy al
most ince. gently.
These were the principal causes which led to
our retrograde movement, but these were not
call. There were others that I will recount
when a movement now said to be in progress
shall have culminated for or against us.
By daylight, on Monday morning, the entire
army was in motion toward an I recrossin g the
Rappahannock. A large number of wounded
men were removed • cross during the previous
day and evening. The enemy' either was una
ware of the movement or was nut in a condi
tion to follow us, an I but little was done by
them to damage au io the retreat.
By noon yesterday all of our forces were
safely encamped on this side of the river, with
our batteries posted properly for the defence of
our position. A small cavalry corps under Gen
eral Averill were ordered across the river, to
observe and report the movements of the enemy
during yesterday and to-day.
THZ PICESIDINT WITH GIitIICRAL BOOKS"
It is understood that the President, General
'Haßeck, and other distinguished officers, went
down the river tuts morning to visit General
Hooker and consult with him upon future plans,
and the results obtained by the recent move
ments. General Hooker is said to be wart
down with tho arduous labors through "which
he has passed during the past few days, but
`will soon have a full report of his-recent opera
tions prepared and ready for publication.
THY -110171472 8581.
The army I. said to be in excellent spirits,
and not aC all demoraliz2d. They have every
confidence in General Hooker. It is thought
that another movement will be made which
will be supported better than this last one. The
feeling of the people Is good humored and every
°Lie believes that the movement has been ad
mirably managed and eminently successful.
The damage done is acknowledged by the rebels
to have been enormous.
The Republican Issues an extra paper this
evening, with the following :
"There are all sorts of rumors to-day, and
among them is one that H oker's army is
whipped and driven back across the Rappahan
, ork by the rebel Lee. There is not one word
of truth in this report. For sound military
reasons,-Gen. Hooker changed his base yester
day ; not in consequence of any. demonstration
by, or fear of the enemy, but for reasons which
in due time will be made known.
"A gentleman who left Gen. Hooker's head
quarters last night, and arrived here this morn
ing, states that he was in the beat of spirits ;
that he had captured nine of the enemy's guns,
a large number of rebel battle Bags, and not
lees than ten thousand prisoners, and had killed
and wounded at least fifteen thousand rebels.
Suffice it to say that Gen. Hooker, has not been
whipped during the late five days' belies. The
worst treatment any of his men receive I was
on Saturday, when the enemy massed its
strength against a single corps, and we have
the authority of a general who participated in
that fight, that the German troops behaved as
well as men could under the circumstances."
I learn that about seven thousand wounded
have been reported ; only three thousand seri
ously injured, however. Accommodations for
most of these have been provided at Acquit',
and only:about nine hundred are to be brought
to this city. Tbis.statement may be-depended
upon aa being very nearly correct. It may
prove too large, but not too small.

Not a little stir was created among the edi
torial fraternity. last evening concerning the
news from the army of the Potomac. It seems
that the facts of the recrossing of the Rappa
hannock were generally known, but permisse
to publish was not granted by authority to any
paper but the National Intelligencer, which ap
peared this morning with an official statement

WASHINGTON. May 7.
.4 It is ascertaine.from the front that the
Army of the Potomac has arrived, with all its
material, at their old camps at Falmouth.
The demonstration of Gen. Hooker has
proved no disaster but simply a failure, owing
to the itopracticability of the positions which
the army bad gained with so much skill and
energy. Less than three eighths of the whole
&Ica was engaged, or could be irrigned, the
ground being covered with foiwits, without
any practicable roads. -
The entire loss of killed, wounded sand miss'
ing will not exceed 10,000, while the enemy's
loss most have been the double of this. Hon
orable t' out army, but lamentable for the
country, the greatest proportion of oar loss is in
killed and wounded.
`'Our loss of prisoners does not exceed;l,7oo.
We have received in Washington 2,450 prison
ers of the enemy. „
We lost eight grins, and took the same num
ber of pieces from the enemy.
The relinquishment of the position was made
simply because it afforded po field kr the ma
ncenvnng of the army, and not from any re

The General and the entire army are in ex

a worse position than our own is at this time,
as Ho k.-r is now where his communications
are already re-established, while theirs—with
Richmond—most continue unavailable for
weeks to come, necessitating them to scatter or
fall back in a body it seems to us.
On the whole, it is clear that a decisive vic
