Peace messenger en route for Montgomery.
A messenger from the Lincoln Government
passed through this city, yesterday, en route for Montgomery
who, it is said, was empowered to negotiate a treaty of peace with the Government
of the Confederate States
The Lynchburg Republican, which makes the foregoing announcement, would scarcely wish any such ‘"messenger"’ any success in his undertaking.
We place no faith in rumored overtures for peace from the Lincoln Government
