Doc. 30.-the position of Kentucky. General Buckner to Governor Magoffin. Headquarters Ky. State Guards, Louisville, June 10, 1861. sir:--On the 8th instant, at Cincinnati, Ohio, I entered into an arrangement with Major-General G. B. McClellan, commander of the United States troops in the State north of the Ohio River, to the following effect: The authorities of the State of Kentucky are to protect the United States property within the limits of the State, to enforce the laws of, and who may be threatened in their persons, property, or enjoyment of their civil rights. You will direct Capt. Lyon to proceed at once to Columbus, to make the necessary preparations for the reception of the force. Camp equipage will be sent from Louisville. You will be furnished hereafter with full instructions for your guidance. Respectfully, your obedient servant, S. B. Buckner, Inspector-General. To Col. Lloyd Tilghman, commanding Fourth Regiment, Kentucky S. G., Paducah, Ky.
Doc. 90.-address of Joseph Holt. Delivered at Louisville, July 13th, 1861. Mr. Holt was introduced to the audience by Mr. Henry Pirtle, who addressed him a few words of welcome. Then taking the stand, amid prolonged cheers, Mr. Holt spoke as follows: Judge Pirtle: I beg you to be assured that I am most thankful for this distinguished and flattering welcome, and for every one of the kind words which have just fallen from your lips, as I am for the hearty response they have received. Spoken by any body and anywhere, these words would have been cherished by me; but spoken by yourself and in the presence and on behalf of those in whose midst I commenced the battle of life, whose friendship I have ever labored to deserve, and in whose fortunes I have ever felt the liveliest sympathy, they are doubly grateful to my feelings. I take no credit to myself for loving and being faithful to such a Government as this, or for uttering, as I do, with every throb of my existence, a praye
to reach the North, and he left the capital of the Old Dominion on the 9th of July. It was impossible at that time to travel on either of the direct routes, and he went to Bristol, Tennessee, where he was arrested and lodged in jail overnight, but released the next morning, after an examination by the military authorities. He then proceeded to Nashville, Tennessee, where a similar fate awaited him; but, after some difficulty, he also obtained his release there, and, proceeding direct to Louisville, met no further obstructions on his journey, via Cincinnati, Pittsburg, Harrisburg, and Lancaster, to Philadelphia. Among the causes which hastened his departure from Richmond was the general belief there that every citizen capable of bearing arms would soon be impressed into the military service, and the alternative was presented to him of soon being subjected to great indignities, bearing arms against the North, or escaping. Some of the intelligence he communicated to us was of a v
the continent of America ever witnessed. Our loss is fully two thousand killed and wounded. Among the killed are Gen. Bee, of South Carolina; Gen. E. K. Smith, Gen. Bartow, of Georgia; Col. Moore and all the Alabama field officers; Col. Fisher and the North Carolina field officers; Adjutant Branch of Georgia, and a host of other leading men. Thomas G. Duncan, of Nelson County, Ky., was in the fight, and shot through the left shoulder. His wound is not dangerous. Col. Barbour, of Louisville; Capt. Menifee and Shelby Coffee, of Kentucky, were in the hottest of the fight. We took thirteen hundred prisoners, sixty pieces of artillery, ten thousand stand of arms, and an immense amount of baggage. This is a sad day. The rain is pouring in torrents. The killed and wounded are being brought in by hundreds, and a gloom pervades all hearts, that even the sense of our great victory cannot relieve.

ference requisite for that purpose, there be appointed a commission of seven citizens of the United States, consisting of Edward Everett, of Massachusetts, Franklin Pierce, of New Hampshire, Millard Fillmore, of New York, Reverdy Johnson, of Maryland, Martin Van Buren, of New York, Thomas Ewing, of Ohio, and James Guthrie, of Kentucky, who shall request from the so-called Confederate States the appointment of a similar commission, and who shall meet and confer on the subject in the city of Louisville on the first Monday of September next. And that the committee appointed from this House notify said commissioners of their appointment and function, and report their action to the next session as an amendment of the Constitution of the United States, to be proposed by Congress to the States for their ratification, according to the fifth article of said Constitution. Mr. Washburne, (interrupting its reading.) I object to the introduction of that resolution. We have had enough of it re
ch we deem far more honorable and Christian, as well as far more politic and humane, than this wholesale butchery of brethren and kindred, under the plea of enforcing the laws. It is as follows. 1. Let an armistice be agreed on between the two belligerents for three months. 2. Let the Executives of the two powers, by means of Envoys, arrange for a Convention of delegates from each of the thirty-four States now or lately composing the American Union,--said Convention to be held at Louisville, Ky., at such date as may be agreed on; it being understood that the election and sending of such delegates shall in no way prejudice the claims of either of the belligerents, in case the Convention should fail to come to any peaceful arrangement. 3. The business of the Convention should be to devise, if practicable, some plan of reunion under a modified constitution, such as they may agree upon, whereby all the thirty-four States can cooperate with each other for the common defence again
Doc. 191.-Louisville (Ky.) peace resolutions, adopted August 17, 1861. Whereas,--(the preamble sets forth that there is no mistaking the position of Kentucky in the present civil war, as she is unalterably for peace.) Resolved, That while this State desires to be true to the Union, she also desires to be at peace with all we are for our country, now and forever, whether assailed by. foreign or domestic enemies. The seceders' resolutions. 1. Resolved, That the people of Louisville have ever been loyal to their country and its Constitution; and, animated by this sentiment, in common with the vast majority of the people of Kentucky, will unwe may, in these trying times, emulate them in transmitting the God-given boon of peace to posterity. 6. That on Saturday, the 24th inst., the Peace Party of Louisville, each person wearing a white rosette or ribbon, will erect a white flag, the symbol of peace, with the word peace inscribed on its folds; that we urge upon ever
