ciated Press in this city having telegraphed eastward a synopsis of the negative of Mr. J. Wesley Greene contained in the Times of Wednesday morning, the Administration at Washington responded thereto as follows:
"Washington, Dec. 10--J Wesley Greene, who furnished the Chicago Times some reported peace propositions from Jeff. Davis to President Lincoln, in an impostor.
He came to Washington to see President Lincoln.
who ascertained that there was no ground for his nonsensical statementsn November, and stated to him that he had two interviews with Jeff. Davis at Richmond, in the last of October and also related certain statements which he said Davis had made to him upon the occasion.
The President however, became satisfied that Greene had not seen Davis at all, and that the entire story was a very shallow attempt at deception.
Jeff. Davis can redeem Green's character if he will by verifying his statement."
This is a very decided letting down from the first dispatch.
