r The Nercs.
' The telegraphic reports in our col-
rans, vith reference to Gen: Hooker's
t iovements, would lead to the belief
h&t the result would be most satis
'. actory. Later reports, however,
:eceived at the telegraph office in this
Mace, indicate that Hooker met with
reverse. The reporrs are contra
.ictory, and uninteresting. The sub
tancc is as follows: During Saturday
nd Sunday the soldiers performed
-nlliant feats of gallantry, and little
loubt was entertained that Hooker
ould force the enemy to leave their i
i r i
ntrenchments, and fight in an open
ield.. On Monday the battle contin
ued with fearful loss to the enemy ;
:uor than four thousand prisoners
lave been sent to Washington, and the
oss to the enemv in killed, wounded
ind prisoners, is estimated at not less
ban twenty thousand, but during this
time the river rose ten feet, one of the
pontoons was destroyed, and the
others were with difficulty kept from
jeing washed away ; the Federals held
' heir position on Tuesda', but without
my fighting. A council of War was
ield, and it was decided to recross
the river in the night, that with the
jigh stage of the river it was impos
sible to keep up communications with
their base of supplies ; that although
they might for a. time retain their
position, the enemy would ultimately
have them at their mercy.
No statement is yet made out of the
loss on our side, but it appears that
we have inflicted a greater damage to
the enemy than we have sustained.
. The Union League.
The proceedings of the meeting here
on Saturday, will be found in another
column. It was by far the largest
gathering that ever took place in the
county, if not in the Territory. The
Union men from the westrrn portion
of the county came in procession, with
banners and martial music, making a
caravan about a mile in length. Be,
sides these, hundreds came in from
every direction. At eleven o'clock a
procession was formed at the foot of
Main street, and marched to the
Methodist church; but hot half were
able to get in the building, the win
dows were taken out, the doors left
open, and as many remained outside
as were in. Others, who could not get
close enough to either see or hear,
All afternoon the streets, and every
Btore and shop in town, were crowded.
The meetiog was addressed by
Messrs. McPherson, Dobbins, Mason,
and Daily, The speeches of Mr.
Dobbina and Dr. McPherson, though
very appropriate, were short. Mr.
Mason and Mr, Daily, fully sustained
their reputation as orators. We heard
6cores of the; people say they made
the best speeches they ever heard.
The vocal music was very good.
Much credit i3 due to the Ladies who
participated in the singing, and to Mr.
II. Dye. The idea of having vocal
music wag not suggested till a day or
two previous to the meeting, and there
was consequently no 'time for prepa
ration. We thought, however, we
never hear better singing.
The meeting held to a late hour,
and there was not time for one-tenth
of those present to sign the Pledge.
It was left at the office of ;the Secre
tary, Mr. Dorsey, where all who desire
can sign it. Copies cf the Pledge will
be printed and sent to every precinct
in the county. It is hoped that every
Union man will sign it.
Elot In Dayton, Ohio.
We learn from dispatches received
here to-day that Vallandigham was
arrested at Dayton on Wednesday, on
charge of treason, and taken to Cin
cinnati, where he is undergoing trial.
After his arrest, a mob of five or six
hundred of his friends collected in
Dayton; gutted the odce of one of the
union;' papers of that city, the Journal,
burned down the building, and with it
eeTeral other adjoining houses ; cut
the telegraph- wires, and burned the
bridce8 on all th-e railroads leading to
the city. "
Gen. .Burnside, at Cincinnati, was
immediately apprised of these high-
handed measures! he ordered the
arrest of the editor of the Empire,
Vallandigliam's organ, and the sup
presslon of the paper. What will be
done i.ith the insurgonts remains to
be seen. In peaceable times 'the
ringleaders would have been sentenced
to the Penitentiary,, and that perhaps,
would tVve been sufficient punishment
But in times like , these, they should
be f hpt 4.QTn UVe nad dogs. Sa bold
a move, subiectinrr themselves mostlit, at all hazards, pledging'to the res
cortainlv to the renaltv of death,
would never have been made, had
they not fully believed they could
sustain themselves. They certainly
expected by burning the railroad
bridges, that they could make a stand
until the insurrection would spread to
other places. If they had not felt
assured that their necks were safe,
they would not attempted such law
lesness. . "We look upon this outbreak at
Dayton as of more importance than
any reverse that , could meet General
Hooker, or any of the union armiea.
It is the inauguration of Civil War in
the North. For months past mutter
ir.gs have been heard that the K. G.
, , t t n
b!e opportunity to resist the Govern
ment and aid the Scuth. Their wide
spread treasonable organization exists
in every State and Territory in the
Union. We have information from
the Provost Marshal's Office in Saint
Joseph, and other places, that even
here in the Westin Northern Mis
souri and Southern Iowa, they were
only waiting suitable opportunity.' If
the proper authorities now have the
back-bone, it can be crushed in the bud
As to Valiandigham, we only hope
he may meet the fite he deserves.
No sensible man in the world doubts
that his whole energy has been devoted
to aid rebellion, in a far more effective
manner than if he had shouldered a
musket and entered the Southern
army. The time it at handwhen
every person who publicly express
disloyal sentiments should either be
sent into southern lines, or shot.
Proceedings of the Mass 3Icc(Ing
Editor JTtbratla A'hertivrr :
On Saturday last, (May 2d,) pursu
ant to call, the loyal people of Nema
ha County, assembled in mass meeting
at Brownville, for the purpose of
ortranizinij a Loyal National League
for said county. The commodious
Methodist Church Jiad been appropri
ately prepared for the occasion, and .
by 1 o'clock was filled to overflowing.
Speakers having beeen invited, the
Hon. 0. P. Mason, Hon! S. G. Diilyv
and Rev. II. II. Dobbins, were present
to address the meeting. A choir of
ladies and gentlemen of Brownville,
who had kindly consented to be
present and sing some national songs,
was also in attendance.
At 1 o'clock, r. m., the meeting'was
called to order by the appointment of
Dr. John McPherson, President;
Messrs. S. W. Kennedy, Er Phillips,
Joepli Oulcmau, -n. V. Siuitn ana
William S. Horn, Vice Presidents ;
C. G. Dorsey, Secretary, and W. II.
Hoover, assistant Secretary.
The President then stated the object
of the meeting, and the business of
the day was opened with prayer by
the Rev. D. L. Hughes.
A motion was made by Judge
Wheeler that a committee of five be
appointed to draft resolutions," and
prepare a pledge to be signed by the
members of the League, whieh motion
was adopted, and ' the President ap
pointed C. G. Dorsey, C. W. Wheeler,
E. L. Grubb, C. F. Haywood, and W.
F. Leach, as said committee.
Pending the report of the com
mittee on resolutions, Rev. Mr. .Dob
bins took the stand, and interested
the audience by a short, but excellent
and pointed address.
Hon. 0. P. Mason was next intro
duced to the audience, and addressed
them at length in his usual vigorous
and animated style, urging all men
to lay aside all past party differences,
and unite in a firm and unwavering
support of the Government in its
efforts to crush the rebellion.
Hon. S. G. Daily next addressed
the meeting, excoriating the rebel
sympathizers of the North, and ren
dering it very uncomfortable for any
of that persuasion, who were present,
lie told such that uin a short time
they would be around trying to get
certificates, and making affidavits, that
they never had been sympathizers
with the rebellion."
The committee then offered the
following resolutions, which were
Whereas, After, two year3 of the
most patriotic sacrifices, on the part
of our people; and the most desper
ate trials on the part of our army to
restore our shattered Union, and
maintain our national honor, our
government finds itself assailed by a
class of persons at home, who would
yield it, Judas like, into the hands of
the enemy, or sully it by a dishonor
able compromise with the hosts of
treason, and who tire even now trying
to induce the masses to resist its law
ful authority in order to gain their
hellish ends, therefore,
Resolved, That we hereby express
our firm and unalterable devotion to
our government, and its laws, and
declare our determination to stand by
toration of its entire authority, our
lives, our fortunes and our sacred
Resolved, That we look upon all
proprosals, from whatever source, to
give up thi3 struggle on any other
terms than. the unconditicnal submis
sion of the traitors in arms against
their country, a3 disgraceful to those
who originate, and to those who, for
a moment, lend an car to them.
Resolved, That the present war was
instigated by the madness of men,
who had received nothing but good
from the hands of our benign govern
ment, which they would 'destroy;
men who hate liberty and love op
pression, and for the purpose, not
only of possessing and holding the
reins of power in their own hands,
but ; of extending, perpetuating and
eternising human bondage, and estab
lishing the worst of de?potisms on the
ruins of a demolished free Govern
ment; and that it is the imperative
duty of the loyal States, casting aside
all minor differences, to combine all
their wisdom and best experience, all
their skill and bravery, all the avail
able resources of men, means and
credit, in concentrated and organized
efforts to crush out, as speedily as
possible, this wicked rebellion, and
restore peace again to our land. .
Resolved, That we have heard with
pride of the gallent conduct of the 1st
Nebraska Volunteers, in their bravery
on the manv battlefields, and cheerful
and patient endurance of the many
privations incident to -the life of a
soldier, and we do herebv tender to
them our heartfelt thanks therefor.
The committee also reported the
following pledge, which was adopted:
We, the undersigned citizens of the
United States, hereby associate our
selves under the name and title of the
Loyal National League.
We pledge ourselves to an uncon
ditional loyalty to the government of
the United States ; to an unwavering
support of its efforts to suppress the
rebellion, and to spare no endeavor to
maintain, unimpaired, the national
unity, both, in principle, and Territo
The primary object of this League
is, and shall be, to bind together all
loyal men, of all trades and profes
sions, in a common union, to maintain
the power, glory, and integrity of the
A vote of thanks was tendered to
the speakers and to the choir.
The meeting was in all respects a
perfect success, being the largest
meeting ever held in the county on
any occasion. Everybody seemed in
a good humor, and overflowing with
patriotism; and if any copperheads
were present, they kept exceedingly
quiet, and probably didn't enjoy it
During the meeting several national
songs were sung by the choir, in a
largely in the success of the meeting.
The president gave notice that all
who desired to do so, could sign the
pledge after the adjournment of the
meeting, and it then being late in the
afternoon, the meeting adjourned subi
ject to the call of the president.
JOHN McPHEKSON, Prest.
C. G. Dorset, Sec'y. ,
New York, 1ft- The Tribune's bull
etin announces that Hooker's army has
crossed the Rappahannock iu four places.
The enemy was confounded and we capt
ured their pickets, reserves,, and 400
prisoners. The Tribune's account states
that on Monday the 11th, 12th and 15th
army corps moved to Kelly's ford, they
reached there on Tuesday morning. A
brigade has been guarding the ford for
the past two week. We crossed on pon
toons, superintended by Gen Howard.
No enemy was found, but a few pickets
Stoneman's cavalry crossed the next
morning. A wagon "train was parked
near Banks' Ford and it va3 evident that
a connexion would be forced from there
to the troops at Kelley's Ford. From
11 to 1 o'clock, irregular firing was heard
from the direction of Germauia, on
the Rappadan, the enemy was trying to
check the rapid march of our troops. At
noon on Tuesday, the 1st, 3d and oth
army corps broke camp, and at daylight
on Wednesday the enemy's pickets. and
reserves were captured and two bridges
built 4 miles below Fredericksburg. 20
men of the 119th 'Pennsylvania were
wounded. . A third bridge was construct
ed, and a sufficient force to hold it cross
ed two miles further down. Reynolds'
first army corps constructed a bridge in
the face of the enemy's rifle pits, and af
fected a crossing. Our artillery fire was
too severe for the enemy, who fled, leav
ing ,87 prisoners from the 12th Georgia
and 6th Louisiana regiments. Thiy re

the rear of Bank's fordwithfull facilities
for crossing. A jroed road has been
constructed between the Ranks' and Uni

Crossed at Kelley's ford, is moving to
wards Chancellorsville, South of Freder
icksburg. New York, May 1. Accounts which
are believed to be reliable, states that in
the recent raid to Morgantown, Pa., the
rebels were 2,000 strong, all the cavalry
under the guerrilla Jenkins. They shot
Lieut Grining, of the 1st Virginia (Loy
al) regiment, who was visiting his home
en a furiough. They stol 50 horses and
all available property. No women or
children were molested. They went
South on Tuesday, after sending out for
aging parties, who stole hundreds of
horses at other places. There is reason
I to' believ.) that their object was to plun
der, and enforce the rebel conscription
act in West Virginia.
The Tribune has received a letter
from near Vicksburg which asserts that
only one 'of the transports the Tigress,
was sunk, in passing the rebel batteries
on the 231, and she breached below the
rear "of our works. The officers and
crew all escaped, The other five got up
safely. The Tribune consequently says
the report that four of them were sunk
and two disabled, is untrue.
PiTTSDxrao, 1 Great excitement to
day, in consequence of reports from Mor
gantown that the rebels defeated Col.
Mulligan at Fairmount, were returning
to Morgantown in force, having received
reinforcements from Beverly.. This
informtion was contained in a letter
fram Maj4 Shoemaker to Gen. How. A
letter from Col.. Shoemaker confirms and
?ays unless reenforcements are immedi
ately sent from here the whole district
will be at the mercy of th enemy. A
ineeiing was held at Gen. How's office,
at which Gen. Pitrpont. Gen. Wiley,

have no dispatches relative to move
ments of the army beyond the Rappa
hannock,' but are able to assure our
readers that everything is going on
favorable in Gen. Ilookor's army.
Later. Though not from official
sources, it isreported that Hooker
with 50,000 men had battled with the
rebels bcyong the Rappahannock.
W e have no particulars, but the Union
troops are victorious.
'New York, April 28. The Trib
une's Hilton Head correspondence, of
the 20th? represents the Monitors and
army ready for a movement, and in
deed one seems actually in progress.
He says before the close of this
week all the ironclads will again be
over the bar at Charleston, and an
attack mu3t soon be mado in connec
tion with the land forces.
WAsnrNGTON, May 1. The Nation
al Republican, of this afternoon, pub
lishes semi-official dispatches from
General Banks, dated near St. Martinsville,-
17, from which it appears
that when he left Baton Rouge three
regiments of Colored troops remained
for its defense. As the results among
others, General Bank's expedition is
accomplishing a march of over 300
m'loa, Lotting the enemjr iu three
battles, two on land, and one on
Grand Lake, dispersing th3 rebel
army, and utterly destroying the rebel
navy. Also capturing the soundries
of the t?nemy at Franklin and New
Iberia, and demolishing their salt
works ten mile3 west ot the. latter
place, capturing a camp and equipage
of the enemy, also several guns, 2,100
prisoners, and so deranging the plans
of. the enemy, that they cannot for
some months, if ever, organize.
Our losses in the two land battles,
are between 0 and 7 hundred- The
despatches say that we have not only
destroyed the army and navy of the
enemy, but captured their stores.
Wc have also their best officers in our
Cairo, May 1. Steamer arrived to

They were not fired on. It is stated
on what is considered reliable author
ity, that; Gen. Austerhaus now occu-

New York, May 2. The Tribune's
correspondence says a gentleman who
left h redencksburg W ednesday evening
represents the citizens as fleing iu every
direction. It is believed the city will be
shelled and all property destroyed. A
complete panic prevails through the
whole country. Stewart's whole cavalry
force were in Culpepper watching Stone
man. - They have all been intercepted by
infantry, and if Stoneman bestirs himself,
he will capture the whole concern. A
brigade at the United States ford, barely
escaped, leaving all their camp equipage
behind. ., : Wheeler's brigade marched out
from Fredericksburg, intending to check
the advance of Hooker's army, but hear
ing the magnitude of the advent, ordered
back his brigade, which fled panic strick
en back to their fortifications. Generals
Lee and Jackson are in command at
Fredericksburg. Longstreet is at Suf
folk. A. K. Hill and Piketr are in N.
Carolini. Four brigades are 3 miles
above the city with orders to fall back to
the rifle pits on the approach of the Yan
kees. The train from Richmond yesterday

terday it is believed the railroad has been
cut by a portion of our cavalry sent out
for that pur pose. Troops from Gennania
Pass and United States ford have joined.
Thus far all's well. " ' .
N. Y. May 2, The, Commercial Ad
vertiser says, we have received informa
tion from a source which we know u en
titled to a high degree of credit which
induces hope that Gen. Hooker has cut or
the retreat of the rebel forces from Fred
ericksburg, and that they may be captured
or destroyed. While our columns hive
crossed the Rappahannock and others re
main before the city, it is believed Gen.
Stoneman's cavalry have gotbetweeu the
rebels and Richmond, and will cut off
their supplies, and arrest their retreat in
that direction. It is also understood that
a strong diversion has been made from
Suffolk in the direction of Richmond, and
that it is by no means impossible that the
rebel capitol may, before the close of an
other week, be invested by Union troops.

Fredericksburg, and. of the first line of
redoubts on the hill behind it, and was
feeling its way to the second line. The
river was crossed and the redoubts car
ried with ease and very slight loss of life.
The rebels had marched away in the di

heavy. Thb enemy have been forced to
fight on ground of Hooker's own choosing
as he promised. his soldiers. Tt was be
lieved in both wings that Stoneman's ex
pedition to cut the railroad between the
rebels and Richmond has proved success
ful, thus cutting. off the only path of re
treat. So confident was Hooker at Fal
mouth, of success, that in conformity with
his order a force had already commenced
rebuilding bridges over the Rappahan
nock. The troops are in fine spirits and
everything looks propitious.
New York, May 3. The following is
from the correspondence of the Tribune,
dated Head Quarters Army of the Poto
mac, April 30th:
The 5th, 11th and 12th corps are in
possession of Chancellorsville ten miles
west of Fredericksburg. After crossing
west of Fredericksburg at Crooked Run,
a small stream three miles beyond the
river, we encountered the enemy, .drove
him before us and captured a number of
prisoners without damage to U3. Our col
umn then moved rapidly on until it ap
proached the Rapidan, and when within
a mile of it our men were fired upon from
rifle pits. Becoming intimidated they fled
and were charged by. us when a sharp
skirmish ensued at Germanic Mills, where
a bridge was in process of erection by the
rebels with a view of aggressive move
ments. After a lapse of about fifteen
minutes, the enemy, consisting of 12S
men surrendered, with one man killed
and several wounded. Our loss was one
killed. By 10 o'clock the 11th corps had
crossed and was encamped. and this morn
ing started on the march to Chancellors
ville. On approaching Wilderness, about
five miles on the way, Gen. Slocum's col
umn was fired upon by artillery, which
resulted harmlessly, and did not check
our advance. Half an hour afterwards'a
messenger reached us from Gen. Mead,
informing Gen. Slocum that he had occu
pied Chancellorsville and wes waiting for
him to form a junction; Orders were
given to advance on the receipt of this
