Col Jacques was sent with his men to the Army of the Cumberland, where he fougme up in Tennessee, and in the arrangement of which we believe Col Jacques has been for some time engaged. The reporter who tells the story of Colonel Jacques's visit to Richmond assert that it was no respect official in its character, and that he had no warranty whatsoever tom these hints it is not difficult for those who have known of Col Jacques's efforts in Tennessee to guess what has been his object in visiti the reunion between Northern and Southern denominations which Col Jacques expected to bring about in Tennessee, with what success or effect thfulness to the Union and their opposition to slavery. We fear Col. Jacques will accomplish little of the purpose he has at heart. --But he

Edmund Kirke, who was recently in Richmond with col Jacques, has published a card, in which he says that Jefferson Davis stated to him: "This war must go on till the test of this generation falls in his tracks, and his children seize his musket and fight our battle, unless you acknowledge our right to self government. We are not fighting for slavery. We are fighting for independence, and that or extermination we will have." A conspiracy is said to have been discovered in Missouri, having for its object the formation of a Northwest Confederacy

The Confederate States were to submit, abolish slavery, acknowledge that they had done wrong, throw themselves on Lincoln's mercy, and ask pardon for having presumed to think they had a right to govern themselves.
