Wade, Chandler, &0., is at length given. Instead of being on the conduct of the war, it is an inquisition into the conduct of President, Secretaries . and Generals. We can only make extracts. THE PENINSULAR CARPAIdN On the 24th and 25th of June Gen. M'Clellan telegraphs the Secretary of War that he is informed by deserters and contrabands that Jackson is contemplating an attack upon his right and rear. As this dispatch of General M'Clellan, and the one of the President in reply, are dated immediately previous to the "seven days' battle," they are given here_in full. "Received 8.50, p. m. •, M'CLIGLLAN I I3, JUDO 26, 6 lb, p. m. "I have just returned from the field, and find your dispatch in regard to Jackson. Sev eral contrabands, just in, give information confirming the supposition that Jackson's ad vance is at or near Hanover Court House. and that Beauregard arrived, with strong rein forcements, in Richmond yesterday. I incline to think that Jackson will attack my right and rear. The rebel force ie stated at 200,000, in cluding Jackson and Beauregard. I shall have to contend against vastly superior odds, if these reports be true; but this alloy will do all in the power of man to hold their position and repulse any attack. I regret toy great inferiority of numbers, but feel that I am in no way responsible tor it, as I have not failed to represent repeatedly the necessity of rein forcements ; that this was the decisive poiht, and that all the available means of the gov ernment should be concentrated here. I will do all that a general can do with the splendid army I have the honor to command ; and if it is destroyed by overwhelming numbers, can at least die with it, and share its fate. But if the result of Lhe action which will occur Lo.morrow, or within a short time, is a disaster, the responsibility cannot be thrown on my shoulders; it must rest where it belongs. . "Since I commenced this, I have received ad ditional intelligence confirming the supposition in regard to Jackson's movements and Beaure gard. I shall probably be attacked to morrow, and now go to the other aide of the Chicka hominy to arrange for the defence on that side. I feel that there is no use in my again asking fn. reinforcements. "Gm B. WOLELLAN, /or Gen'l. "Hon. E ili STANTON, Secretary of War." The answer of the President is as follows: "WASHINGTON, June 26. 1862. “Your three despatches of yesterday in re lition to the affair, ending with the statement that you completely *.uvceeded, in making your point, are very gratifying.” "The later one of 6.15 p. m., suggesting the probability of your being overwhelmed by 200,- 000 men, talking of witom the responsibility will belong, pains me very much.' I. give you all I can, end act on the presumption that you will do the beat you can with what you have; while you continue, ungenerously I think, to assume that I could give you more if I would. I have omitted, I shall omit no opportunity to send you reintorcements whenever I possibly can. "A. LINCOLN. "Major General M'CLELLAN," On the atternoon of the 26 h of June, between 2 and 3 o'clock, the enemy in considerable force, mode a vigorous attack upon ti.e troops o' Gen. McCall's division, stationed at. Meehan coneisiiiig et the two brigades of Sey mour and Reynolds. The ac►ien lasted until nightfall, when the enemy were repulstd Troops were sent up by Gen. Porter to the a-sistance of those engaged ; but, they were not, in the b it,le, though some of them were in position to support the right of the line. About 12 o'clock that night the troops were ordered to fall hack to Gaints's Mill, which was accompli.hed without. tots. On the 27th the battle of Gaines's Mills was fought principally by the trope under Gen. Porter. Our forces there engaged were from 27,000 to 30.000; the force of the enemy being from two to three times that num"•er. The en emy were in such superior force t hat; although our troops fought with exceedteg brevet y, they were driven hack with a loss of anout 9,000, in killed, wounded and missing. General M'Clel an was questioned as to the pol.ey of leaving the right wine, conair.tivg of only about 80.000 men, to meet the attack or the superior force of the enemy. instead of withdrawing, it, to the right b ink•of the Chick ahorniny before the battle of G tines's Mill. His testimony on that point is a follows : ••Question. Whatever might have been the intentions of the enemy, as the at tack was to be made by bim, would it not, have been better to have placed both wings of our army on the same aide of the Chickahominy prior to the battle of Gainete'a Mill ? "Answer. Ido not think they ought to have beeo brought to the sane side of the river be fore they actually were. ..Q•ieetton. What advantage was gained by leaving the right wing of our army to be at tackt d by a greatly superior force ? ••Answer. It prevented the enemy from getting on our flank. and rear, and, in my otioion, enabled us to withdraw the at my and its material, &Question. Will you explain what wag done by the tight wing of ot.r army at or about she time the loft was engaged which saved our flank fr3m attack and enabled the army and its material to he withdrawn? "Answer. By desperate fighting they in• flioted so great. a loss on the enemy as to check his movement ou the lett hank of the river, and gave us time to get our material out of the way." During the nigh: atter the battle of Gaines'S Mill all our fat ces were concentrated on the right hank of the Chickahominy. at dthe twit day the movemeot to the James river w. :s de termined upon. G. Berta flettitzelman testifies that t h e Bi r .ht . atter that battle he was . k.ent. for 'hy Grin-rat ; that he found . very thing packed. r. :toy to leave; that. Gen. rat said there were two th•ngs to be done—to c.'noeatr•tte his forces and t i k aU on a battle, or to withdraw to the James river; that it he rirked a b ittie there, at d bran n. the at my w .8 di atm) ed. Getirrsl lleinizeltstin advis.d him not to risk a battle under such oireutustaticev. fur if that army was Tort the cause would be loaf.; that it were hetter to go to the James river and await eeinfolertnents Gem ral Muelriko replied that he wan of that noibion himself, nod that *tt. O t t r tin it, e a upon. That night, at 12 20 a m , General hleOtellan telegraph• the Becr-tary of War that he (0 u. McClellan) is not reig - nimble for the result, hut leele that the government bad not ruettiitted his army. T. this the President repltes, on the 28. h ; "If you have had a drown bailie. or a rTstixe, it is Lim prase Ice pay jar the enemy not belay in Washington. We protected Washington and the enemy concentrated on you. Had we stripped Washington he would have been upon tia before the troops sent could have got to you. "Save your at all events. Will send reinforcements as fast as we can. Of course they cannot reach you to-day, to-morrow, or next day." * The retreat to the James river having been decided upon, the army took up its march, being attacked by the enemy in the daytime, and however successful in repelling those at tacks, evacuating their positions during the night. The actions of Savage' Station, Glen dale and Malvern were fouillt during the movement of the army to the James, the enemy being repulsed in each day's fighting, and our army falling back, under orders, during the night. Oit.the 2d of July the President telegraphs to General M'Clellan: "Your dispatch of yesterday morning indu ces me to hope your army is having some rest. In this hope allow me to reason with you for a moment. When you ask for 50,000 men to be promptly sent you, you must surely labor un der some gross mistake of fact. Recently you sent papers showing your disposal of forces made last spring for the defence of Washing ton, and advising a return to that plan. I find included in and about Washington 76,000 men. Now, please be assured that I have not men enough to fill that, very plan by 16,000. All of General Fremont's in the valley ; all of Ge neral Banks' ; all of General Wbowell's not with you ; and all in Washington, taken to gether, do not exceed, if they reach, 60,000, with Gen. Wool and Gen. Dix added to those mentioned. I have not outside of your army 75,000 men east of the mountains. Thus the idea of sending you 50,000, or any other con siderable force, promptly, is simply absurd. If, in your frequent mention of responsibility, you had the impression that I blame you for not doing more than you can, please be relieved of such impression. I only beg that in like manner you will not ask impossibilities of me. "If you think you are not strong enough to take Richmond just now, I do not ask you to try just now. Save the army, material and personnel, and I will strengthen it for the of fensive again as fast as I can." On the 3d of July, after the army had reached Harrison's Bar, General M'Clellan writes to the Secretary of War : "I am in hopes that the enemy is as com pletely worn out as we are ; be was certainly very severely punished in the last battle. * * * It is, of course, impossible to estimate as yet our losses, but I doubt whether they are today more than 50,000 mea with their colors. " To accomplish the great task of capturing Richmond, and putting an end to this rebellion, reinforcements should be sent to me rather much over than leas than 100,000 men." 1n regard to the reinforcement of the army while at Harrison's Landing, the testimony of General M'Clellan is as follws: ,‘ Question. How many available men did you estimate that you had at Harrison's Bar, and how many more would you have required in order to undertake a movement successfully upon Richmond. •' Answer. I think I bad about 85,000 or 90,000 men at Harrison's Bar, and would have undertakes another movement in advance with about 20,000 more reinforcements. My view Was, that pretty much everything that the government could have controlled ought to have been massed on the James river. I did not believe that the enemy would trouble Wash• ington so long as we had a powerful army in the vicinity of Richmond, and did not share the apprehensions for the safety of Washington that was entertained by a great many. " I asked for 50,000 men at first, on the ground that I thought the army should be made as strong as possible, and as little as possible left to chance. When Gen. Halleck came down to Harrison's Bar, my recollection is that he said that 20,000 men, or something about that number, was all that could be had, and I said that I would try it again with that number. I have no recollection of having asked at a subsequent period for a greater number than 20,000 as a necessary preliminary to a movement. Q lestion. About bow many men bad been lost from the 25th of June until you reached Harrison's Bar, in killed, wounded, and. mis sing? "Answer. I think the loss was about 14,000; but I could not tell positively without looking at the returns. " Question. Will you state in what you think your chances for success would have been greater, with the addition of 21000 men to the number which you had at Harrison's Lauding, than they were in front of Richmond, and be fore Jackson had formed a junction with the rest of the enemy's forces? Answer. I should have counted upon the effect of the battles, which had just taken place, upon the enemy. We had then strong reasons to believe that the enemy's losses had been very much heavier than our own, and that portions or his army were very much de moratiz-d, especially after the battle of Mal vern Hill." (In closing their report upon the campaign of the Peninsula, the committee would refer to the report of Gen. John G. Barnard, chief of engineers of the Army of the Potomac du ring that campaign, a report of' which seems to have been got up to order for the committee, and in which Gen. Barnard takes back his for mer opinions.) COOPERATION WITH GEN. POPE. [Note. This is the Committee's own head ing. They evidently are investigating the conduct. of M'Clellan, not of the war. They say nothing about the conduct of Pope.] At. 10, a. m., August 27. neral halleck telegraphs General M'Clelian that Franklin's corns should march in that direction [Manas sas] as soon as possible." At, 10.40, a. in. Genets,' M'Clellan replies: "I have sent or ders to Franklin to prepare to march with his corps at once, and to repair here (Alexandria) in person to inform him as to his means of transportation. Kearney was yesterday at Rappahannock; Porter at Bealton, Kelly's, Ilnrnett, &c. Somtur will commence reaching Falmnuth io•rlay." At )2 m. on the same day Gen. Llalleck tele graphs to Gen. M'Clellan: " Telegrams from Gen. Porter to Gen. Burn side, just rereived, say that Rinks is at Fay ettevole. M•Dosvel, Sieel, and Rickets. near Warrenton; Reno on his right. Porter, is marching on Warrenton to reinforce Pope. Nothing said of Hein tzleman. Porter reports a eenerat battle immin.nt. Franklin's corps ehould move out by forced marches, Carry lug 'three or four days' provisions, and to be sup. pli, day far its possible by railroad." From G.nerat M'C , ellan to General Halleck, slum 111.3-, sent 12 6 p. m., received 1 40 p. n " My aids has just. returned fri m General, Franklin's name. that Generals Franklin, Saila and Slocum, are all in Wash ton. lie gave the order to the ntXt in rank to pla.'e the corps in readiness to move at once." From e.me to earns, sent .1.145 p. m , received • 110 o. m Franklin's artillery has no horses except four guns without cairPons l can pick up no cavalry. In view of these facts, wilt it not be PRICE TWO CENTS. well to push Sumner's corps here by water as rapidly as possible, to make immediate ar rangements for placing the works in front of Washington in an efficient condition of defense. I have no means of knowing the enemy's force between Pope and ourselves. Can Franklin, without his artillery or cavalry, effect any useful purpose in front ? Should not Burnside at once take steps to evacuate Falmouth and Acquia, at the same time covering the retreat of any of Pope's troopti who may fall back in that direc tion ? Ido not see that we have force enough on hand to form a connection with Pope, whose exact position we do not know. Are we safe in the direction of the valley ?" At 1.50 p. m. Gen. Halleck replies : "Yes; I think Sumner's corps should come to Alexandria. The enemy has appeared at Leesburg, and the commanding officer at Ed wards's Ferry asks for cavalry. Have you any to spare him ? The enemy seems to be trying to turn Pope's right. Is there no way of com municating with him ?" On the morning of the 28th of August Gen. Halleek telegraphs to Gen. Franklin ; "On parting with Gen. M'Clellan, about two o'clock this morning, it was understood that you were to move ;with your corps to-day, to ward Manasses Junction, to drive the enemy from the railroad. I bare just learned that the General has not returned to Alexandria. If you have not received his order, act on this." At 1.05 p. m. of the same day, the 28th, Gen. M'Clellan telegraphs to Gen. Halleck : "Your dispatch to Franklin received. I have been doing all possible to burry artillery and cavalry. The moment Franklin can be started with a reasonable amount of artillery he shall go. * * * * * Please see Barnard, and be sure the works to wards Chain Bridge are perfectly secure. I look upon those works, especially Ethan Allen and Marcy, as of the first importance." At 3 30 p. m. General Halleck telegraphs to Gen. M'Clellan : _ , 4 Net a moment must'be lost in pushing as large a force as possible towards Manasses, so as to communicate with Pope before the enemy is reinforced." At 4.45 p_ m. Gen. M'Clellan replies : "Your despatch received. Neither Frank lin's nor Sumner's corps is now in condition to move and fight a battle. It would be a sacri• flee to send them out now. I have sent aides to ascertain the condition Of the commands of Con and Tyler, but I still think that a prema ture movement in small force will accomplish nothing but the destruction of the troops sent out. I repeat, that I will lose no time in pre• paring the troops now here for the field, and that whatever orders you may give, after hear ing what I have to say, will be carried out." At 8.40 p. m. Gen. Halleck telegraphs to Gen. M'Clellan : "There must be no further delay in moving Franklin's corps towards Manassas ; they must go to-morrow morning, ready or not ready. If we delay too long to get ready there will be no necessity to go at all, for Pope will either be defeated or victorious without our aid. If there is a want of wagons, the men must carry provisions with them till the wagons can come to their relief." At 10 p. m. Gen. M'Clellan telegraphs : "Your despatch received. Franklin's corps has been ordered to march at six (6) o'clock to-morrow morning. Sumner has about 14,000 infantry, without cavalry or artillery here." At 10.30 a. m., of the 29th, Gen. M'Clellan telegraphs to Gen..Halleck : "Franklin's corps is in motion ; started about six (6) a. tn. I can give him but two squad rons of cavalry. * * * If Sumner moves in support of Franklin, it leaves us without any reliable troops in and near Washington. Yet Franklin is too much atone. What shall be done t Have but three squldrons belonging to Army of Potomac ? Franklin has but forty rounds of ammunition, and no wagons to move more. Ido not think Franklin is in condition to accomplish much if he meets strong resist ance. I should not have *moved him but for your pressing orders last night." At 12 tn. General M'Cilellan telegraphs: "Do you wish the movement of Franklin's corps to continue? lie is without reserve am• munition and without transportation•" In another dispatch of same date he tele graphs: •Franklin has only between 10,000 and 11,000 ready for duty. How far do you wish this force to advance ?" At 2 p. m. General ilalleek telegraphs to General PA'Clellsn: "I want Franklin's corps to go far enough to find out something about the enemy. Perhaps he may get such information at Anandale as to prevent his going further ; otherwise he will push on towards Fairfax. Try* to get some-. thing from direction of Manassas, either by telegram or through Franklin's scouts. Our people must move more actively, and find out where the enemy is. lam tired of guesses." At 2.40 p. m. the President asks of General M'Clellan: "What news from direction of Manassas Junction ? What, generally ?" At 2 45 p. m., received 3.30 p. in., General Mcillellan replies: "The last news I received from the direction of Manassas was from stragglers, to the effect that the enemy were evacuating Centreville and retiring towards Thoroughfare Gap. This is by no means reliable. I am clear that one of two courses should be adopted: First. To concentrate all our available forces to open communication with Pope. Second. To leave Pepe to get out. of his scrape. and at once use all means to make the capital perfectly safe.— No middle course will now answer. Tell me what you wish me to do, and I will do all in my power to accomplish it. I wish to know what my orders and authority are. I ask for nothing but will obey whatever orders you give. I only ask a prompt decision, that I may at once give the necessary orders. It will not do to delay longer." Al 4 10 p. m., the President replies: "Yours of to-day just received. I think your first alternative, to-wit: 'to concentrate all our available forces to open communication with Pope,' is the right one. Bat I wish not to control. That I now leave to Gen. Balleek, aided by your counsels." AL 7 50 p. to , Gen. Halleck telegraphs to General McClellan. "You will immediately send construction train and guards to repair railroad to Manas sas. Let there be no deloy in this. I have ,just been told that Franklin's corps stopped at Anandale. and that he was this evening in Alrxondria. This is all contrary to my orders. Investigate and report the fact of this disobe thence. That corps inuxt push forward, as dirroled, to protect the railroad and open our communication with Manassas." To !him General McClellan replies at 8 p. m., received 8 50 p. m.: was not rate for Franklin to move beyond Anandale, nndrr the oircumstonces. until we knew h at was at Vtenna. General Franklin remained here until aliout 1 p. m , endeavoring to arrange for supplies for his command. I am r. sponsirle for both these circumstances, and do not see that either was in disobedience to your Of dm. .Please give distinct orders in referenee to Franklin's movements of to-mor row. * * * * In regard to to mor row's movements I desire definite instructions, PUBLISHED EVERY MORNING, 817NDAY8 IXON,PTID, BY 0.

At 10 p. m., General McClellan telegraphs: "Not hearing from you, I have sent orderr to General Franklin to place himself in corn-' munieation with General Pope, by advancing as soon as possible, and at the sante time cover the transit of Pope's supplies." At 10, p. m., General M'Clellan forwards to' General Halleck a dispatch received from Gen.. Franklin, at Anandale, dated 7.15, p. m., is which General Franklin gives =more concern ing the battle of that day, closing thus: - " Pope is said to be very ghort of provt sions, and the country will not support him." At 5, a. m., of the 30th of August, General Pope sent a dispatch to Gen. Halleck, received' at 3.20, p. m., from the battle-field near Groi,e ton, Va., containing an account of the battle' of the day before, and closing as follows: " I think you had best send Franklin's, Cox's and Sturgis's regiments to Centreville, as also forage and subsistence. I received a note this morning from Gen. Franklin, written by order of Gen. M'Clellan, saying that wagons and• cars would be loaded and sent to Fairfax Sta tion as soon as I would send a cavalry escort to Alexandria to bring them out. Such a re - - quest, when Alexandria is full of troops and we fighting the enemy, needs no comment. Will you have these supplies sent, without the least delay, to Centreville?" At 9.40, a. m., August 30, Gen. Halleok tel egraphs to Gen. M'Clellan: " I am by no means satisfied with General Franklin's march of yesterday, considering the circumstances of the case. He was very wrong in etbpping at Anandale. Moreover, I learned last night that the quartermaster's department could have given him plenty of transportation if he had applied for it, any time since hie ar rival at Alexandria. He knew the importance of opening communication with Gen. Pope'e army, and should have acted more promptly." At 11 a. m. Gen. M'Clellan telegraphs : "Have ordered Sumner to leave one brigade in the vicinity of Chain Bridge,. and to move the rest, via Columbia Pike, on Anandale and Fairfax Court House, if this is the route you wish them to take. He and Franklin are both instructed to join Pope as promptly as possi ble. Shall Couch move also when he arrives?" At 12 20 p. m. Gen. Halleek telegraphs : "I think Couch should land at Alexandria and be immediately pushed out to rope.— Send the troops where the fighting is. Let me know when Couch arrives, as I may have other information by that time. *- * Send transports to Acquia to bring up Burn side's command. I have telegraphed to him, and am waiting his answer." At 2.15 p. m. Gen. Halleck telegraphs : "Franklin's and all of Sumner's corps should be pushed forward with all possible despatch. They must use their legs and make forced marches. Time now is everything." At 5 p. m. General M'Clellan telegraphs to • Gen. Halleck : "Major Hammerstein, of my staff, reports, from two miles this side of Centreville, at 1 30 p. m., that Franklin's corps was then advan cing rapidly. Sumner's corps moved at 1.45 • p. m. The orderly who brought the dispatch from Hammerstein states that he learned that the fighting commenced five miles beyond Cen treville, and that oar people had been driving them all day. Hammerstein says allhe learned was favorable." At .10 p. m. Gen. Halleok telegraphs to Gen. M'Clellan : "All of Sumner's corps on the south side of the river, not actually required in the forts, should march to Pope's relief. Replace them with new regiments. Franklin should also be hurried on to reinforce Pope." On the same day—August 30, hour not given —Gen. McClellan sent the following to Gen eral Haßeck: 'Ever since General Franklin received notice that he was to march from Alexandria, he has been using every effort to get transportation. for hie extra ammunition. But he was uni formly told by the quartermasters here that there was none disposable, and his command. marched without wagons. After the departure. of his corps, 6 a. m. yesterday, he procured twenty wagons to carry a portion of his am munition, by unloading some of General Banks' supply train for that purpose. 'General Sumner was one entire day in en deavoring, by application upon quartermasters , and others, to get a sufficient number of wag ons to transport hie reserve amuniticn, but , without success, and was obliged to march with out it,. "I have this morning sent all my head— quarters train that is landed to be at once load ed with ammunition for Sumner and Franklin,. but they will not go far towards supplying the deficiency. "Eighty-five wagons were got together by the quartermaster last night, loaded with sub sistence, and sent tbrwagd under an escort at one a. m. via Alexandria. "Every effort has been made fa carry out your instructions promptly. The. difficulty seems to Consist in the fact that the greater part of the transportation on hand, at Alexan dria and Washington hes been needed for cur rent supplies of the garrisons. At all events,. such is the state of the case as represented to me by the quartermaster, and it appears to be true. I take it for granted that this has not been properly explained to you." [CONCLUDED TO MORROW.] Does it not look remarkably noble and digni fied to see the President of the United States come down from his high office to the level of black Republican street and gr;)g-shop loafers, and brand a great party of his fellow citizens as "Copperheads" and "rebels," as is done in the order, which we published last week, dischar ging Lieut. A. J. Edgerly from service for "cir culating Copperhead tickets" at our last elec tion ? Does not every true American citizen feel humiliated almost beyond endurance, that the Presidential office should be so degraded? It is unparalleled in our history. We hope the administration will not have the unblushing impudence and audactityto call upon any of those who have voted or "circulated" what is called "Copperhead tickets," to do any more fighting in this war. If they are unfit to act in the capacity of lieutenants, they certainly are not fit for private soldiers in the ranks.— States and Union.
