back his own forces to the neighborhood of Richmond. A month had elapsed since Mr. Lincoln, landing on the banks of the James, had come to consult with General McClellan relative to the plans of the forthcoming campaigns; it was now the 8th of Aughe War, vol. i., Halleck's Memorandum, p. 454. and proposed to him to seize it by crossing over to the south bank of the James.

Additional articles provided that in the armies the commanders-in-chief should alone have the right of treating directly between themselves relative to exchanges and the release of prisoners on parole.

It was agreed upon that the exchange should not be interrupted, even if the interpretation of the cartel should give rise to discussions.
