PURPOSES OF THE WAR.
Congress; by a vote nearly unanithous, passed
the following resolution, which expresses the
voice of the Nation and is the true standard of
"That the present deplorable cvil war has been
forced upon the country by the disunionista of the
Southern States, now in arms against the Constitutional
Government, and in arms around the Capital; that in
this National emergency, Congress, banishing all feel
ing of mere passion or resentment, will recollect only
Its duty to the whole counts'; that this war is Cot
waged on their part in any sptrtt of oppression, or fir
any wpm: of conquest or fWbArgatiovi, or prose of

institutiolls of those States,but to defend and maintain
the supremacy of the Constitution, and to reserve the
Union, with ail the dirtily, equality and rights of the
several States unimpaired; and that as soon as these ob

Tin season of Oar& has been followed by
one of confusion' aid suspense---our 'advises
are Various and indefinite—a paralysis seems
to have fastened upon our military movements.
Troops are coming in• in companies and regi
ments—the streets are thronged with sobilerz
and citizens—all the indinations of excitement
are, abroad throughout the city—still the feel
ing of uncertainty prevails and 'the uneasy
consciousness that we have no leaders to rely
on—no intelligence which has not repeatedly
received its ocuzlindlotion. It is eminently a
seaeon•of confusion and suspense. A day or
two may dissipate tye apprehension of attack
and bring on a sullen reaction of indifference.
Anxieties wasted. in alarm, excitement turned
to apathy, are far more trying than the 'actual
sense of- danger Ind the resolve once firmly
fixed to meet it. Lot our . authorities take
warning—let.themerganize speedily the forces
at their command—let,the public be furnished
with all the intelligence it is in their power to
communicate, and let quiet and good order be
maintained. If we are in danger, let as real
ize it calmlY, end let us not too hastily count
en security or be unnerved by an unsteady be
lief in sudden:danger.
4THE LATEST NEWS.
We give below all the news we have, but
•we cannot get any definite izitelligence of the
movements of the, repels, or even the
mente.of_ our lona. army. We are, therefore,
left entirely to conjecture. Gen. Lee *as at
one Gawkish in the eonfidtmen of Gen. Scott,
and we may therefore couclude that he hay a
reasenable amount of common sense. If he
intended making a raid in force into the inte
rior ofPennsylvatda or to Baltimore, he would
doubtless. have made all his preparations in
advance, and when prepared, strike quickly,
and not wait, after making the first advance,
to give us time to 'mass an opposing • force.—
We may, therefore, conclude that the rebel
movement maks some ulterior purpose we
have not yet divined—probably the sending
of the largest portion of their forces to attack
Grant at 'Vicksburg. Let the authorities look
out, and not be again out-Ranked.

said to be at Hagerstown yesterday morning,

made upon the, Government, and the troops
here accordingly must submit to be put into
service under the Government before the arms,
&c., can be supplied them, lie has pledged
himself that as soon as the emergency shall
cease service shall cease with it. We cannot
stop to eomment upon the want of proper
forecast which this condition of things ex
hibits on the part of our authorities here.
Yesterday we had news from New York that
already fifteen regiments were under marching
orders, under the call of the Governor of that
State, for our defense. These regiments are
all organized, •armed and ready. The con
trast which the alacrity of New York presents
to the confusion which reigns here, and the
tardiness shown in shaping the organization of
•our own forces, is as painful as it should be
instructive for the future. We do not censure
for the sake of embarrassing in any manner
the execution of those duties which devolve
upon the Executive; but if it be possible to
stimulate to a more perfect energy and action
those who are in command of troops and State
resent ces, we earnestly call upon them to de
lay DO longer in taking such atepti as may
satisfy our soldiers that the pledges which
have been given them will be strictly and fairly
fulfilled. Meantime, we renew our exhorta
tions to the troops to yield
. a ready obedience
to the summons of the Governor, and accept
the promise be"has made. Let the State sail
upon the Goiernmeat for the necessary arms
and munitiene at once. Trist. the Executive de
mand the same assurance from the General
Government that he has taken upon himself to
give the men who have assembled for our de
fense. , Let the vouchers be issued, and we
have no doubt of a vigorous response.• We
should all have—Officials and soldiers.—but
one earnest, paramount desire—to protect our
noble Commonwealth from the despoiler and
NM her from dishonor. One aim shotild ani
mate us all—the 'safety and security of our
homes, the preservation of- the pride and glory
of the . State. To insure the one and prove the
other, no misunderstanding must prevail—only
a hearty, earnest unity of action, perfect good
faith and willing hearts and s hinds. There is
no room 'for cavil where these things are.
There is no-question . what our duty is; there
is no hope but in its strict performance. We
shall settle responsibilities when the invader is
driven out; we shall decide all matters else
than the honorable deeds which we must do in
the hour of peril when the peril has passed
away—till then, let us march to meet the• foe,
and fight him back before us—let the cry ring
out upon the hills, " Oar homes, the safety of
our sovereign State, our sacred honor, shall be
" The King can do no Wrong."
A short time since there was a meeting of
"loyal Union men" at Chicago, at Which Mr.
Senator Doolittle was movid and inspired to
utter binvelf 311 fO/14W4
"In egard to the matter which was imme
diately before the meeting, he said : He be
lieved the exercise of the power'in any part of
the United States to suppress .newspapers is
simply a question of time and necessity. In
New Orleans, Gen. Butler suppressed 'news
papers, and even executed a traitor. Has any
body found fault with that 'f In many parts of
the North papers have been suppressed, and
justly so. In my opinion,- the Executive is
clothed with disoretion in the time of war to do
*hat he dotted fit and prow. Ho alluded to
the revoking order. Probably the President
thinks the time has not yet"come when Chicago
shall be put under martial law. But if any
newspaper opposes the enforcing of the con
scription law, or any other order the Preitident
thinks proper to give, that paper Will be sup
pressed, and if need be, martial law proclaimed.
We dooms, if petteible, to here the loyal people
of the North united as one man, and we must
have it practically so, or it is of no avail. He
regretted that there were still two political
parties. There should be but one, and that one
united with the determination to put down the
rebellion. - But as it is, the President must con
trol all men of all parties, and those who op
pose the administration will suffer the conse
quences. If the time comes, and it becomes
necessary, Mr. Lincoln will declare martial taw
even in Chicago. He hoped there would never
be a necessity for such a measure."
We 'cbnfess there is a thoroughness, a com
pleteness, a roundness in Mr. Doolittle's re
marks which we rather like. He is undoubt
edly more honest than most of his partisans,
and expresses their sentiments with a direct
ness quite commendable. He is like the ac
tor in Crummle's company, who used to black
himself all over when he was going to play
Othello. "In my opinion the Executive is
clothed with disofetion in time of war to do
what he deems fit and proper." This is sim
ple, satisfactory and intelligible; it cuts clean ;
as with the touch of a magician's wand, it
transforms our institutiotis into 'a despotism
like thatlof Runjeet Sing. It saves < a great
many nice questions, and puts an end to a
great deal of impertinent' nonsense on the
part of certain poStiltat fOIIOWS ca 11631 law
yers, who traitorously corrupt the youth of
the, nation, who usually talk of habeas corpus
and bills of rights, and such abominable
words as no Christian ear' can endure to hear."
After having armed the President with the
point of doing whatever he may deem fit and
proper, he proceeds' to define the ends 'and
purposes to which he would have this power
directed, and these are to suppress every news
paper and to hang or banish every man who
is opposed to the administration. This senti
ment would have made' the fortune of Mr.
Doolittle in any despotism of tbe old world

'the lessons of the past two years. During that

NEWS OF THE DAY.
WASHINGTON, June 19.—One hundred and
six of the' wounded at /ladle, Va., arrived at
Fairfax station last night.
Yesterday or day before four boite crews
were sent adore' at Aquia to' reconnoitre.
Going out on - the 'railroad, they encountered
25 or 30 rebel cavalrymen; who' dashed among
them, firing as they advanced. The seamen
returned the fire and retreated' in safety. -
The cavalry employed thereselves fora short
time in examining the 'empty'atore houses; hitt
a few well directed 'shote from the gunkkos.te
caused them to . ' scamper as' 'rapidly
horses could carry them;
The beat thie morning also brought up r a

The /Eronantio corps of the' army of the
Potomac has been dispensed'witb, and the bal

The several 'corps are steadily assuming the
positions respectively assigned to them.
The first army corps on Sunday marched 23
miles, on Monday lb, and on Tuesday 30 miles.
This, considering the intense heat of the
weather and the previous long marches, is 'an
extraordinary performance. The diiilance the

The itteaitter Sonthiriter, Willa was recently
launched at Stockton, has been making a trial
trip. Among the company on board was a
person , who represented himself as a newspa
per reporter, but turned out to be a spy, and
who made an affidavit tending to show that the
steamer was intended for a
, confederate cruiser.
This affidaVit WAS forwarded to Minister
Adams : and by him submitted to Earl Russell,
who ordered the vessel to be searched. This
search resulted in nothing to justify the sus
picion of her being intended as a pirate; and
the steamer accordingly remained unseized.
The alleged spy, however, continued to hover
about West Hartford, where the steamer was
lying. It is stated that the vessel is intended
to trade between Liverpool and Cbarleeton.
The editorial of the Lesson Timm on the
situation of affairs in America, alluding to the
war on. the Mississippi, says : " For the first
time in the war we have a long narration of

and a battery of artillery about one mile be

Gen. Lee's men, who had gone forward to have
their hersea.sho4 at the .blackspijitli shop, saw
our cavalry coming, and returned to their
Mende with the information. Capt. HOSIOII,
of the Fifth Virginia rebel cavalry, and Capt.
White, with a 'command of thirty men; were
despatched to act as sharpshooters with others,
to hold their position at all hazards, but not
receiving support when our men charged they
were obliged to surrender at discretion.

Our troops charged on this regiment, and also
on the Third Virginia rebel cavalry, and a
hand-to-hand encounter ensued, Auring which
we took many prisoners.
The order was then given for the rebels to
richt about and fall back.
This information is from the prisoners taken.

to be mortally wounded. A number of the

ARMY or THB POTOMAC, June 18:--The situa
tion and intention of the rebels begins more
and more to be developed, and 'we gain a
clearer insight into their plane and purposes.
There - . is very large room , for doubt whether
any considerable body of rebels have 'yet pas
sed beyond the . Potomac. northward. Weed,
it is quite certain .that the movement into
Penssylv ,nia jtad. Maryland up to this time
embraces onlY some five thousand cavalry,
supported by pertaps a single division of
mounted infantry and a battery, of light artil
lery. With such a force they are enabled to
move with great celerity and strike rapidly at
seemingly distant points.
Washington is not so easy a prize to them
as they imagined. They will , not get into the
National Capital without more &Operate light=
ing than they have'hitherto made: '
I can only say that. our camp- is not idle.
Gen. Hooker is watching Gen. Lee as closely
as Lee is watching him. I think I may ven
ture the assertion, that in view of the shape
affairs have taken, the danger is about over.
By this I do not mean that no great damage
will be done by the rebel* in llfaryland and
Pennsylvania, but simply that no mere rebels
will venture across the Potomac than are now
there. These will undoubtedly do all the dam
age they Can ; but their numbers are so Small,
and the popular Uprising so great, that there
will be no great difficulty for the militia to
drive them back ; Itpd the Army of the Pototkiao
may be relied on , to make. their retreat up the
valley more difficult than their march down
Their main Tforcel of infantry is yet ;*'the
Shenandoah valley and about, Whitheeter,
They have quite a large force scattered along
the valley higher up: •
If is &Went that the rebels have been cheek
.mated atthe outset at their invading campaign.
They calculated' on impressing the nationq
authorities with. the idea ; that their whole army
had crossed the-Potomac, supposing that then
the Army of the Potomao would be immediately
eerie up it 11 arglsnd,leaving this road open
for their conagripted reserve force to make .a
dash into Washington. But in this they have
been completely baffled. ' '
The heat still ()enduing intense hi this lati
tude, and the absence of water ;occasions great
inconvenience and even eiiffering. If we could
only have a good soaking ,rain to fill up the
little streams and the springs the effective
strength of the army would be doubled.
Our cavalry meta force ,of the enemy at Al
die, in the Kittoden Mountain, yesterdey, and
gave there tattle, • The - enemy's force was
principally cavalry. Our cavalry was too much
for them, and drove the rebels back, taking
two entire squadrons. ' •
This army, in the march of Monday, suf
fered untold miseries. The heat was oppres
sive in the extreme, with scarcely a breath of
air stirring. The roads were ankle deepwith
dust, and to cap the climax the streams and
springs along , the way wore all dry. The
whale country was filled with stragglers. Men
Isola& not be kept In Vitv ranks. Every 'piece
of woods was filled with them; and no coaxing
or threatening could prevail -on them to move
on. The ambulanoes s were, crowded with those
who bad completely given out. I presume
there were as many as a thousand oases of
coup de solid, of which at least a hundred were
instantly fatal. The open country was crowded
with these poor fellows, dropping down by the
roadside in all directions. , •
