ng us that it will be for our own good, and being convinced that he himself will reap no small benefit from it, in the saving of limb and feature. He and Attorney General Bates, who thought the Yankees could conquer us by cutting off our tea and coffee, and stopping the operations of the Post-Office, are for holding out the olivenclude Churchill in a general amnesty which he was persuaded to proclaim. There are some men to whom no experience can teach anything, and Messrs., Seward and Bates seem to be of that number. They might have learned, before this, that the South will have peace on one condition, and on one only. That condition is eternal sepaere she is detested, where her presence is the signal, as it is the incentive, to everlasting war. That is the only way to reach the haven of peace, and Seward and Bates ought to know it by this time. But they have been deceiving themselves with the illusion that there is a strong Union party in the South, and that they need but e
tion, suspending the liabilities of the confiscation act, and offering, in short, full and free pardon and protection in their personal and property rights to the people of the South, only excepting the military and civil leaders in this great rebellion. Even these Mr. Seward suggests should be allowed their property, but not to be eligible to hold office under the Government. This proposition has been considered in Cabinet council so far informal; but it has developed two parties. Mr. Bates and Montgomery Blair favor it with certain modifications, while Messrs. Stanton and Chase violently oppose it. Mr. Welles is supposed also to be opposed to it. Mr. Usher, who always votes with the President, will decide whichever way that functionary does. The President has as yet expressed no opinion on this subject, but his speech at the serenade would seem to indicate that he is in favor of trying to make good his promise to free the slaves before consenting to a peace in the present e
The Aspect of affairs. While Seward and Bates are coolly proposing to grant us peace on condition of unlimited submission, and the loss of our slave property, valued at the commencement of the war at only four thousand millions of dollars, and while Lincoln and Chase are proposing to make the forfeiture yet more severe, the courage of this Confederacy was never higher, its means of resistance more ample, or its determination never to affiliate with the rotten despotism on the other side of the Potomac more fixed and irrevocable. The people of the Confederacy did not enter into this war without having first maturely considered all the consequences, and thoroughly weighed all the chances of success. When they drew the sword, it was with a perfect knowledge that they were about to engage in a long, bloody, and tedious war. They knew perfectly well the strength of their enemy, and the extent of his resources. They never calculated upon uninterrupted success. They knew that in al
and numerous other districts, thereby confining the proclamation to districts in open rebellion against the Union. On the subject of slavery and its ultimate fate at the end of the war the Cabinet is a unit — only differing as to the means by which its annihilation shall be brought about. Messrs. Chase, Stanton, Welles, and Usher, are of opinion that slavery should cease in all sections, whether covered by the proclamation or not, at the end of the war; while Messrs. Blair, Seward, and Bates, claim that it would be impolitic to make such a radical change; that the interests of political economy demand that emancipation should be gradual. To this effect these gentlemen favor the idea that all colored people remaining in slavery at the end of the war shall be gradually freed by special enactment. No member harhers for a moment the idea of reconstructing the Union on a basis of slavery, and no flag of tines has been or will be entertained from disheartened rebel leaders which for

The moneys of the bank at that place have been removed to St. Louis for safety The records of the three counties — Jackson, Bates, and Cass — have also been removed to prevent their destruction. Gen.

cupy the best portion of the night before finished. Miss Chase was dressed in a gorgeous white velvet dress, with an extended trail, and upon her head wore a rich lace vell. But little or no other ornament was perceived upon her person. The Senator was clad in a suit of rich black cloth, with the usual addition of a white silk vest. Among the dignitaries of the evening we noticed the President, Abraham Lincoln, together with nearly all the members of the Cabinet--Messrs. Stanton, Bates, and others. Of the foreign ministers there were present Lord Lyons and Count Mercier. The British and French legations were also well represented. The military was represented by Major-Generals Halleck, Auger, McDowell, and other officers of lesser note. Senators Wilson, and Conness, of California, we also noticed during the course of the evening. Hon. Simon Cameron and his two daughters were alike conspicuous among the hosts of guests assembled on the occasion, together with Presi

The two escaped officers, who were carried to the rear when captured, says: The Yankees expected to capture Gen.
