ious, and intelligent citizens. No better mode of diminishing the burden of a draft can be devised. Resort to such a method will materially aid in the solution of the $300 exemption question, by diminishing the number to which it may be applicable, and to the same proportion it will bring down the price of substitutes to a just and equitable standard. Marking the Sneaks. [From the Lexington (Ky.) Unionist.] When the State capital was menaced by Mogan's rebels, Gov Bramiette and Gen Lindsey determined to defend the city to the last extremity, and, no United States troops being there, they ordered out all the militia and strangers who happened to be there. Even small boys of ten to twelve years old, who could shoot a gun, went in with a will and did valiant service, and the thieving rebels were repulsed. There were, however, some sneaking rebel sympathizers who skulked and hid, and should be marked and scouted from the community. One of the editors of the Louisville Jo

The whole Yankee loss is estimated at 300 men. Jacques and Kirk visit Richmond. The Washington correspondent of the Philadelphia Inquirer states, in reference to the visit of Jacques and Kirk to Richmond, that the report that they acted in an official capacity for the Federal Government, or that they were Kirk to Richmond, that the report that they acted in an official capacity for the Federal Government, or that they were in any respect recognized either at Washington or in Richmond as agents, messengers, envoys, &c, of the United States, is untrue. The object of their mission was not present in its nature, but altogether ulterior and dependent upon contingencies which may arise hereafter. Although it is not officially known what was the precise object of their mission, still it is understood that it looked to a restoration of peace, They reached Richmond by passing, with permission, through Grant's lines.
olate. More than this he does not yet feel at liberty to state, though he soon may be. And all that he can now add is his general inference that the pacification of our country is neither so difficult nor so distant as seems to be generally supposed. The engagement at Snicker's Ferry. A correspondent of the New York Herald writes the following exaggerated account of the fight at Snicker's: Snicker's Ferry, July 20--The forces under Major Gen Wright have pursued Early and Breckin from Washington to this place, sometimes skirmishing with their rear guard, which proved to have been kept 24 hours in the rear of the main body for purposes of observation. It invariably fled when attacked. When near Purcellville, some miles south of Snicker's Gap, Duffie's cavalry, of Gen Crook's command, came upon their trains and captured 82 of their wagons with but slight loss. Up at the mouth of the Gap he had a more serious time, and lost a few men. Crook then brought up his cava

Additional from the North. From our late Northern files, we make some extracts given below: Greeley's account of his' Teace Niggiations." [From the New York Tribune.] The telegraphic stories concerning Peace Conferences at Niagara Falls have a slender foundation in fact, but most of the details are very wide of the troth. The editor of this paper has taken part in and been privy to no further negotiations than were fully authorized and more than authorized. But these related solety to bringing the antagonists face to face, in amicable rather than belligerent attitude, with the view to the initiation of an effort for peace, to be prosecuted at Washington. The movement has had no immediate success. Of course, all reports that the writer has been engaged in proposing or receiving or discussing by pothecated terms or basis of peace, whether with accredited agents of the Richmond authorities or others, are utterly mistaken. He has never had the slightest authorizati

Crook then brought up his cavalry, and, passing through the Gap, reached the ferry, which was so strongly protected that he could not cross. The next day Gen Wright came up with some of his troops, and soon determined to attempt a crossing, sufficiently at least to determine their strength. He did so, and, under cover of artillery fire, crossed over several regiments, which maintained their ground manfull
