accordingly. It was worth all the seeming humiliation of going on such a mission, and being cooped up in a steamboat at Fortress Monroe, to hear from the lips of Lincoln and Seward the final assurances of United States policy. These assurances, accompanied by the legislation of the Federal Congress, have presented a plain and disoy. We fear and detest their arts more than their arms. Whatever betide us in the future, we shall be no parties to our own humiliation. The second term of Lincoln begins with no such overwhelming odds as those of his first. We had then but a raw militia, unprovided with suitable arms, with twenty thousand pounds of powder he field material similar to that which has become the main reliance of the Federal Government. If our public spirit has, in some measure, declined, the reply of Lincoln to our Peace Commissioners will kindle again in a broad and irresistible flame the fervid and self-sacrificing patriotism of 1861. The absentees from our army wi
olical benediction.) "Remember me to my old friends in the South." Let the "old friends" call upon Mr. Hunter and received the affectionate souvenir. Mr. Seward could hardly suppose that his friends here would ever forget him.--There are monuments to his genius in a hundred thousand mounds scattered everywhere over the surface of this broad land. The flames of burning houses and cities are nightly illuminating the skies in his honor. Every breeze is laden with plaintive music, called forth by his master hand. The sheeted dead start from their bloody shrouds and wander through their old loved homes, whispering the name of Seward. Not even Lincoln has such claims upon Confederate admiration. He has neither the heart nor the face of Seward. Born upon Southern soil, he cannot altogether eradicate all impulses of humanity from his sound and all traces of honesty from his visage. Mr. Hunter has our sympathies. We would rather be cursed by any other man than blessed by Seward.
. Prayer by Rev. Jas. B. Taylor, Jr. Patriotic resolutions, adopted by the officers and soldiers of Witcher's cavalry, were read and referred to the Committee on Confederate Relations. A bill providing for an increase of the fees of Commonwealth's attorneys in cases of conviction was reported from the Committee for Courts of Justice. Joint resolutions in response to the failure of our peace commissioners to come to any satisfactory adjustment of our national difficulties with Lincoln were introduced by Messrs. Guy, of Goochland, and Collier, of Petersburg, and appropriately referred. The Senate bill providing for the purchase of fuel, to be supplied to the inhabitants of Richmond at reduced prices, was taken from the calendar, and being on its engrossment, Mr. Dulancy, of Fairfax, proposed to amend the bill by including Petersburg, Lynchburg and Charlottesville, sustaining his amendment in a speech of about twenty minutes, during which he expressed himself as
at the idea of anything coming out of this matter, are to day convinced that there is something in it. The reason for Mr. Lincoln keeping it so quiet is said, by a high official, to be that, if he were to disclose what he knew, the very purpose to be accomplished might be baffled entirely. Advices from Fortress Monroe this afternoon are to the effect that Mr. Lincoln found them more disposed to reconciliation than he had anticipated, and that he will return to-night, reaching here by Satgnizant of the purposes of the negotiations. Many leading Senators who, at first, would not listen to such a thing as Mr. Lincoln treating with them, are now strong in the belief that this move will bring about a speedy peace. General Dix leftry they once dearly loved, or shall we take them back to meet the free people of the free States of America? Whatever Mr. Lincoln's policy is, whether he is at Fortress Monroe or in the city of Washington, we believe he possesses the supreme attrib

Lincoln" is the sole and final judge whether the country is invaded or in insurrection or not. 20. That when he says that is the fact, he has the power to hang, roast, broil, banish or stew every person in the United States. (See Lincoln to Corning and others.) 21. That if the State Governors and Legislatures don't suit him, the provost-marshal will keep them in order. (See New York Times) 22. That by touching "a bell" Lincoln has more power than any one, aside from the Almighty, haLincoln has more power than any one, aside from the Almighty, has ever attempted to exercise on earth, and that all his pimps have just as much. (See Seward to Lyons, and Burnside to the Judge.) 23. That it is the duty of white men to marry sooty wenches. (See Eider Tilton.) 24. That all men ought to have niggers marry their daughters.
