summer,- when the State capital was threaten

FALSEHOOD, and known to be false by the writer
of the dastardly concern. The proprietor
was not only present all the time assisting to
defend the city, but paid at least fifty persons
for one whole week to work at the fortifica
tions, which saved the city from destruction
by the rebels. We have never'faentioned the
latter facts publicly, but they can be proven
by responsible witnesses in a court of justice.
and we give the. 'owners and editors of the
Union, whoever they may. be, (no name ap

that if. these libels are again repeated, we
shall prosecute them , in a Dauphin county

Tita.Tha - Tiourar with those who write for
the 14k)rgiin5 and those who indulge in open
treasonable talk, is that their treason is elici
ted when they are steeped in inebriation.
Sober men who are traitors at heart, have the
discretion to conceal their bitterness and
their opinions; but topers, like dirty fools
with IoW tplinkl i overflow with filth unavoid

The Losses in Orant's Army—lid and
Corn ors to the Enemy.
We have come to the conclusion, after
uontlis of close observation, that the Cop
perhead journalists of the country are resolved,
it all hazards, to imperil the national cause
inet give aid and comfort to the common
, eenty. The latest plan adopted to secure
the embarrassment of the Govermm nt by
treating a panic among the people, is to over
state the losses in Grant's army—to exag
;erste the suffering of the brave defenders of
the Government, and thus, of course, establish
in the belief of the world the superior fighing
palifteations of the rebels, with their greatly
present enlarged prospects of success. For
weeks the Copperhead organs have been filled
.vith statements to the effect that the losses
if the Army of the Potomac, since it came
under the command of Gen. Grant, amount
xi from severayfipe to one hundred thousand
nen, including officers of high rank and popu
lar efficiency, with stores and arms of Meal
iulable extent and value. In answer to this
immense falsehood, the Albany Evening Jour
tut; whose editor has spent several days with
Gen. Grant's army within the past fortnight,
says : "On Saturday of last week, we had it
from official sources, that his entire loss since
the beginning of the , present campaign up to
June 1, including sick, wounded, killed, miss
ing and the retirement of regiments, whose
term of enlistment had expired, was a few
hundred over 41,000."
—The difficulty with the Copperhead organs
is, that their conductors derive all their notions
and all their information on the subject of
the war to crush rebellion from th© rebel
press. Hence the frequency of Copperhead
falsehoods in this connection
There has been a monoply in the business of
telegraphing perhaps more intolerant, exact
ing and impertinent than that which has ever
characterized the acts of, corporations blessed
with incalculable special privileges. We have
felt this monopoly pecuniarily for a long time
—until we have - been induced, in obedience to
what We 'deem -4ue to our own independence
and business interests, boldly to resist its ag
greSsions. It is now becoming apparent that
the great financial and political, the vast com
mercial and mechanical interests of the coun
7.ry also begin to feel the necessity of
checking a Monoply which refuses to
respond to reason, by throwing in its
way such competition as will not only
humiliate but absolutely counteract the
effort of a mere clique of money greeds to
dictate to the enterprise and the independence
of the business men of this country. From
our. Baltimore exchanges we learn that the
organization of a new telegraph company,
named the "Baltimore and Eastern Shore
Telegraph Company," has been consummated,
the managers of which have contracted for
the construction of a line through the counties
of Baltimore, Anne Arundel, Queen Anne,
Talbot, Dorchester and Somerset, to Snow
Hill, with the design to extend it eventually
into the State of Virginia, as that territory
may_ be recovered from the rebels. In-this
connection the Philadelphia News states that
another company has been organized, which
is entitled the Commercial Telegraph Coin
&any, which will cause to be constructed a
line from the city of Washington to Portland,
in the State of Maine. Thigwill be a trunk
Sine, from which branches will extend to va
rious points-in the country, and will doubt
less be a strong competitor with the arrogant
monopoly knoWn as
. "the American line."
The directors of the "Commercial" declare
their intention to reduce the charges to the
public very considerably below such as - are
exacted by the existing lines; and, as it is
well known that the profits now realized are
enormous, the new enterprise must become
—We are heartily in favor of stretching as
many lines*of competing telegraph wires and
laying as much railroad iron as there are capi
talists in the country to invest their means.
In the present and the future, -one of our
greatest duties will be to guard against mo
nopolies—monopolies that aim at dictating to
entire communities, and aspire to control for
their own profit the results of the individual
enterprises of the times.
There is the highest authority for the state
ment that Gen. Grant gave - the President,
whenn-at his headquarters, the assurance of the
certainty of his taking Richmond.

The attack upon the 2nd Corps on Wednes
day, near the Weldon Railroad, did not result
so disastrously as was at first supposed.
The line was formed by Barlows' division
being on the left; Birney's (Gen. Mott in con -

It was expected that the 6th corps would
have connected on the left with Barlow, but
it seems quite a gap was left; into which A. P.
Hill's corps entered, and before our men were
aware of it they received a volley from the
rear which created a panic in the ranks and
caused a rapid retreat to the woods in the rear
of the 3d division.
This left the flank of the 3d Diviiion un
protected and the enemy, taking'advantage of
it. Charged through and fairly into the pits,
ordering our men to surrender.
The troops, however, left the trenches and
fell back rapidly, but many of them were cap
tured and quite a number billed and woundeo.
Our loss in prisoners is reported at *about.

Four officers engaged in this fight had just
joined their commands after being exchanged,
and when surrounded and. ordered to surren

several of them got back safe.
At 8 P. as. a charge was made by the 2d
Corps, and the line of works from which they
had been forced in the afternoon recovered.
We lost scarcely a man in this advance, as
tho. enemy fired too high, and the balls all
passed over the heads of our men.. A num

General Grant's army occupies positions in

burg, which were not long since in - the pos
session of the rebels, includihg all their works
on the south side of the :Appomattox river,
constructed previous to the - arrival, of the ad

Richmond and points south of Petersburg.
Gen. Butler has effectually destroyed about
three miles of the rat(' between. Petersburg
and Richne md, wisting the talk , : so that they
must tic recast or reviled before they can be
again used, which they are not doing now.
So long as Gen. Grant elects he can hold
the enemy thus by the,throat at Petersburg,
his camps being perfectly healthy, with good
and abundant water fur the use of his men,
and entirely secure communication with his
base of supplies at City Point. From his
present position he can move at will toward
the south, with, say twenty days' supplies,
compelling Lee to follow bimetal risk heavy
enga,;ements on miler:l:led riuud, as he mu, t
if possib:e prevent the eventual total destruc
tion of his rail communication with Weldon.
On the north side of the James river, Hunter
and Sheridan have effected results of immense
importance upon their bearing upon the cam
paign, having effectually desti oyed all Lee's
railroad communications north, the railroad
to Lynchburg and the Virginia Central ail
'road. He cannot again make them available
this season. They have also consumed and
destroyed all the supplies remaining in Vir
ginia in the valley between the two Annas and
Washington city, which, together with the
destruction of the railroads last referred to,
renders. it impossible for Lee to send any re
spectable force northward.
The rebels in and around Richmond are,
therefore, restricted to the use of the Dan
ville railroad, of the destruction of a part of
Which by Hunter we may hear at anymoment.
That railroad is of different broad guage front
all other Virginia railroads, and, therefore,
no machinery adapted to them can :be used
In a word, Grant, by his move south of the
James, has cut Lee's rail communications in
all directions, except via Danville, which, as
yet, are incomplete and cannot be available
for the receipt of supplies for his army from
any considerable region of country. In
achieving this important result he has placed
Lee in a situation in which he must not long
hence come out from heliind his fortifications
and risk a battle on a fair field or abandin
Richmond and Petersburg.
We have the authority of Assi tant Secre
tary Dana, who arrived last night direct from
Gen. Grant's headquarters, stating that up
to the moment he left thereon Wednesday,
our entire loss in killed, wounded and mis
sing since crossing -the James has not been
more than 10,000, while-there is little reason
to doubt that the loss of the Rebels has been
proportionately as great as ours.
The hospital steamer Connecticut arrived
here last night at 11 o'clock from City Point,
bringing up 500 wounded, a number of whom
were officers. Three hundred of these wound
ed were stretcher cases, the remainder being
able to walk.
Burnside's black troops are giving further
evidence of good soldiership and courage, and
are in high favor.
On Wednesday Gen. Grant and his staff
visited the Connecticut and spent some time
on 'board of her. The staff officers dined
with Dr. Hood, the surgeon in charge, bnt the
General was called away by business before
dinner was announced.
The majority of our wounded at City Point
are being sent to New York, and the Connect
icut and State of Maine are the only two-reg
ular hospital boats that will run to this city
for the present. Some of the wounded offi
cers may, however, be brought up in the mail
Six: hundred and twenty rebel prisoners, all
that were at City Point yesterday morning,
were placed on transports and sent away.

The Pre.idOiit returned yesterday from his
Nisit to the fgint, satisfied with the condition
of thines and confirmed in his confidence in
Grant's extraordinary qualities as a com
mander. Mr. Lincoln was accompanied by
Capt. Fox, Assistant Secretary of the Navy,
and Col. Chadwick, of Willard's Hotel, who
acted as chief caterer of the Presidential party.
He was received at City Point by Gen. Grant,
and conditeNd to the Lieutenant General's
headquarters,' After partaking of refresh

Mr. Lincoln, en route to the front, passed
the ,colored troops in,review. As soon as the
tab 6 was 'lib& known that the tall stranger
with Gen. Grant was the President, they be
gan to cheer. Demonstrations of curiosity
and joy were manifested all along the lines.
The party halted at our advance works before
Petersburg, ivhere the President had a fine
view of the city. As this visit was in the
midst of active operations. the Commander
in-Glaief did not visit the several corps of the
Army of the Potomac. On Wednesday the
PreSident and party visited General But er's
headquarters, and under the escort of the
General and staff rode to the extreme right of
his lines, near Farrar's Island on the James
'diver, and within sight and good range,of a
rebel battery only 1,900 yards off. This bat
tery is on the south side of the James, just
:above the obstructions placed in the river by
(order of Gen. Grant.
an Tuesday this battery opened upon our
extreme right, without doing any damage,
when one of our monitors lying near the ob
structions replied with. a 15-inch Dahlgren,
and dismounted or silenced every gun in it.
One or tiro ot the rebel rams plying on the
James river for the protection of Richmond
came, down on Tuesday ELS far as the vicinity
of Dutch Gap, and threw some shells over
land, but they fell harmless.' The rams are

continual crackling of musketry kept up by
'the sit rinit line; accompanied by occasional
artillem*bis and shelling, not unfrequently
on portions of our front into a pretty heavy
