Good Advice. Mr. Gilmore, at the conclusion of the account of the interview of Jacques and himself with the President, states: that finding their mission fruitless, Colonel Jacques solemnly said: "Ephraim is joined to his idols; let him alone." That is all we ask. Let us alone. It has been our watchword from the beginning. We recommend it to the Chicago Convention and the Northern people.
can hardly be disputed.--With regard to the manner in which this information is to be obtained, we should suppose he is quite competent to decide. His worst enemies allow him at least common sense and a certain degree of judgment. Jacques and Gilmore pressed themselves upon his notice under very peculiar circumstances. They professed to be in possession of Lincoln's views, and to desire to communicate with him especially in reference to them. That they spoke the truth he was fully entitledn order to insure their rejection. President Davis acted with great wisdom in bringing them out in their full length. We now know what Lincoln wants, and we are very certain it is not peace. This may be understood from the magazine article of Gilmore. It is rendered still more apparent by the circular of Mr. Benjamin. Whether Mr. Benjamin took the best method of making his testimony known to the world, we do not undertake to say.

We had seceded, he said, and were now fighting to get rid of the tyranny of the majority. It is, therefore, we think, hardly reasonable to suppose that he will willfully violate the Constitution he is sworn to support in order that he may replace us under that very tyranny of the majority, from which we have effected o
Salaries of Yankee Governors. --Governor Low, of California, has by far the largest salary of any of our State Governors. He has $7,000 a year in gold. The next highest salaries for Governors are in New York and Pennsylvania--$4,000 in currency. While Governor Cannon, of Delaware, gets only $1,333, Governor Buckingham, of Connecticut, $1,100, and Governors J. Gregory Smith, of Vermont, Gilmore, of New Hampshire, and James Y. Smith, of Rhode Island, only $1,000 each.
