Those words were: "Before this letter reaches you (a proposed letter by me to President Davis), Sumter will have been evacuated." The Commissioners who received those communications conclude they have been abused and overreached. The Montgomery Ghat I could make to avert the calamities of war. The Assistant Secretary promised to give the matter attention, but I had no other intercourse with him or any other person on the subject, nor have I had any reply to the letters submitted to you. John A. Campbell. Very respectfully, Gen. Davis, Pres't of the Conf'rate States.
Changes in the Cabinet. --The Savannah Republican says: We have good reason to believe that, if not already done, a change will soon be effected in the Cabinet of President Davis.

Davis, and ask a cessation of hostilities until after the assembling of Congress.

"$3,000 for the Head of the traitor, Lieut. Maury. "Lieut. Maury's Treachery.--A Washington letter says evidences of Lieut. Maury's treachery are daily apparent. The meanest of them yet discovered is, that he removed buoys from Kettle Bottom Shoals, leaving the Administration to find it out as best they could.
