--Gen. Davis was in Jackson, Miss., on Monday evening, on his way to Montgomery.
He was received with grand military and civic honors.
In a speech at the Capitol he said, if war must come, it must be upon Northern, and not upon Southern soil; but if the North is prepared to grant us peace, and recognize our equality, all will be well.
