Bacfor the proceedings of the abolitionists in Congress and out of it, the rebellion would have long since died a natural death. Their business appears to be to heap fresh fuel on the expiring flame. The best recruiting sergeants of the rebels are the abolition demagogues in the halls of Congress. A short time ago Senator Wilson proposed to top enlistment and reduce the army by two hundred thousand men. From our report of the proceedings in Congress yesterday, we perceive he now wants to add two hundred thousand men to the seven hundred thousand already raised, making in all close upon a million of men organized for the war. Bad it not bean for the disloyal course of the abolitionists in playing into the hands of the rebels, fifty thousand men would have sufficed to restore the Union and peace. If they continue

Hence the cutting up of his Potomac army into three or four separate camps, to make room for two or three military politicians.--Hence the late disastrous repulse of Gen. Banks from the Shenandoah Valley, and the general disarrangement of all those beautiful plans which were to supersede the plans of Gen. McClellan for the recovery of Richmond and the State of Virginia to the Union. Mr. Senator Wilson and his radical associates had decreed that no more troops were wanted, and recruiting had been for some time suspended, when this repulse of Gen. Banks fell like a bomb-shell into the War Office. Mr. Secretary Stanton was thus persuaded of the expediency of calling out fifty thousand additional troops.
