rrett and Mr. Stanton were always warm personal friends. President Lincoln and Secretary Stanton expressed in the warmest terms their appreciation of the aid which he had often rendered them. Upon one occasion, Mr. Garrett said, Charles W. Russell, formerly of Wheeling, Va., came to my office at Camden Station and sent in his card. Being at the moment very much engaged, I detained him for an hour, but hastened to see Mr. Russell as soon as I could, and to my astonishment found him aMr. Russell as soon as I could, and to my astonishment found him accompanied with a lady who was closely veiled, and who was the wife of Jefferson Davis. After assuring them that I had not known any lady was waiting, I asked the occasion of Mrs. Davis's visit. She replied that she had just arrived from Fortress Monroe, where her husband was so closely confined that unless he could be quickly released he would die; that she had been informed I possessed great influence with Mr. Stanton, and had come to beg my active aid for the release of Mr. Davis. She ask

t can only be by the introduction of a less positive, less domineering, less provoking tone than that on which the Americans have hitherto prided themselves. Mr. Russell has been for some time in the United States discharging for the British public, not to say for the whole world, the same services that he did so well before in ng and a large force of volunteers. As the conservators of public order, they wish no man to be forced, and British subjects, at all events, to be left alone. Mr. Russell frankly admits that they acted on the latter feeling as soon as the opportunity occurred, and that he erred in charging them with a degree of evasion before theof Louisiana cannot think himself ill-used, we do not see why he should seize on the admission that no evasion had been practised to invite general disbelief in Mr. Russell's statements. In every good society in this country, when a man frankly confesses that subsequent information leads him to withdraw or qualify a word, the conc

even life, outside of its success, is nothing. It is our mission, I think, to come out of this with negro slavery established and recognized, as the true basis of society and government in all staple-growing countries. I thought the North would see and follow its interests. I thought Europe would do the same, and supposed it had done it when England agreed to recognize us as belligerents, which is all the recognition I want. But isms seem to have the whip-hand of reason and interest. If Russell did write what is extracted from his sixth letter, and Lord John did say that our privateers should not carry prizes into British ports, thus changing all that the law of nations has established as to belligerent rights, I give the whole world up to its isms. Without any uselessly harsh expressions, we should quietly take the ground that if our exports are not wanted we can live within ourselves, and it shall be prohibited to send them abroad. Let them try that, and if England breaks the
at a gallop, and down the road out into the country beyond, in search of the fugitives. After going four miles beyond Fairfax, and finding that the legs of the rebels were evidently the longest,--for they made the fastest time on record in this war, certainly,--our troopers returned, with the cannon, and joined the van again. Our party consisted of Hons. Schuyler Colfax, E. B. Washburn, Messrs. Dixon of New Jersey, Judge McKeon of New York, and two or three reporters for the press. Mr. Russell of the London Times, and Mr. Raymond of the N. Y. Times, were also together, with another party. Hundreds of persons arrived in Washington on Tuesday and Wednesday, who came expressly to see the battle. The hotels were packed full of human beings — the National alone turning away over four hundred guests, whom they could not lodge, for the crowd. A few Union people lingered behind in the village, who were greatly relieved, so they said, to see our army coming. In a few places along t

idence it was so well calculated to inspire on the part of the Confederates, our military position is stronger now than it was before the inauspicious event. Had this occurred in a campaign in Europe, where it is not the custom to cloud the outskirts of an advancing army with a host of curious non-combatants, even if the military retreat had taken place at all, (which without the civilians' panic might not have happened,) the account given of the day would probably have been that which Mr. Russell, while ignorant of the disaster behind, gave to the affrighted fugitives whom he encountered toward its close: Oh, it's a drawn battle. The troops are reoccupying the position from which they started in the morning. Unhappily the next night's mails were loaded with accounts, not of course intentionally exaggerated, but written under the influence of the same panic which had indefinitely aggravated, if it did not cause, the disaster. From the necessity of the case, the civilians being i
