stripped its fate of dignity. I dismiss, therefore, the unworthy criticism that he should have negotiated peace in February, 1865, when Hon. Francis P. Blair came informally to Richmond, and when, as the result of his mission, Messrs. Stephens, Hunter and Campbell met President Lincoln and Secretary Seward in conference at Hampton Roads. Reports have been circulated that at that time peace could have been secured upon a basis of a return to the Union, with payment of some sort to Southern owns was held at bay by a people and a soldiery whom he held together with an iron will and hurled like a flaming thunderbolt at their foes. The Cabinet of Jefferson Davis. In his Cabinet he gathered the foremost civilians of the land— Toombs, Hunter, Benjamin, Bragg, Watts, Davis, Memminger, Trenholm, Walker, Randolph, Seddon, Breckenridge, Mallory, Reagan.

He referred to the answer of the Mayor of New Orleans to Captain Farraguti, and of the Mayor of Norfolk to General Wool, and to various letters, showing a lack of Union feeling at the South, and treason swaggers everywhere, and their armies recruited by decrepit old men, unchristian ministers and malignant women. Treason should where it can no longer fight and loyalty implores where it ought to command. The bill was referred. Mr. Davis, (Union,) of Kentucky, referred to Gen. Hunter's proclamation, and to the sad policy of weakening Gen. Banks so as to leave him to be whipped by the rebels, and said he believed Secretary Staunton took charge of the armies. Mr. Wilson, (rep.,) of West., said the President was entirely responsible for these orders for the arrest of Gen. McDowell's progress towards Richmond, and for the withdrawal of troops General Banks. It was done by the President, and the approval of the Secretary of War and several Generals and military men.
