Lincoln in reply to a Friendly correspondent declared that no propositions for peace had reached la hint from the rebel authorities and when a any should they would be properly cont a Ide Ped a a Here was another exhibition of his cunning and duplicity. No prop positions tor peace had reached him he said and Why simply because he would not permit those entrusted with them to the presence of his Imperia highness. Tue correspondence the other Day Between the president and c. C. Clay an j. P. Holcomb further illustrates the Low and dangerous characteristics alluded to. Vice president Stephens attempt to reach Washington to negotiate a having failed the next resort in order to bring about a cessation of hostilities was attempted through the parties in question. Horace Greely waa selected for the third party and no abolitionist in the country would object to him on account of any partiality he entertained for the rebels. Tilings went on smoothly enough in the preliminary co res. Poydence Between Greely and the rebel representatives until there appeared to be a Prospect of a Friendly meeting of the parties. At this stage of the proceedings. Cunning Abe took a whole Nigritto consider the situation and then dispatched the following to or. Greely ,.

For what inducement have they to Lay Down their arms i they di3tyhid their armies and overrun their country with freed negroes then their terms of peace willbe considered by Abraham Lincoln or As that functionary styles it the executive government of the United meanest Abbas quot Craft seems to have forsaken him in this last emergency he should Heve treated Clay and Holcomb As he did vice president Stephens. Having entered into a correspondence , he was fairly driven to the Wall and forced to acknowledge that no peace is possible with Hia consent As Long As.,there is a White Man to he conscripted to risk his in fighting for the Freedom of a degraded people who will not fight to free themselves. Those a who would be free themselves must strike the blow a but with or. Lincoln this is entirely reversed and american freemen the very the human family Iare to by dragged by conscription to sacrifice their lives if need be for a people who instead of asserting their Freedom in the very midst of rebellion Only More closely hug their chains. To this condition we have come at last. Our great struggle for National Unity has been perverted into one for the emancipation of a people unfitted to be free and those who have been entirely Instru-m��$u�ol�?~�>��?T0diain8 Ike change cannot be induced to take part in the contest.

Sherman at Atlanta. One of the military programme prosecuted this summer has been very successfully performed. Sherman has reached Atlanta after a most extraordinary Campaign in which More marching Over a rough country and More Bat ties were fought and More successful flanking occurred than in any Campaign on record. The last movement which placed him in front of Atlanta Aud gave him Possession of the of Railroad connecting Atlanta and Richmond was a successful stroke of strategy which seemed to take Johnston unexpectedly and at a disadvantage to himself. It compelled him to come out of his entrenchments to try the effect of a sudden attack before Sherman As he sup posed could be in a situation to hold his position. But the plan of immediately entrenching every place where this army made a halt was fount an admirable Protection and Johnston was repulsed with heavy loss and afterwards driven Back behind the entrenchments at Atlanta. Rumours Are Rife thit Sherman is now in Atlanta the rebels have evacuated it. If this be so As we shall know soon by Telegraph it will prove that Johnston a army must be greatly inferior to Sherman s in numbers and tend to confirm the supposition that he has sent a portion of it to Richmond to reinforce Lee. Atlanta is an important Point to hold not Only on account of its Railroad communications but because it is a town the manufactories of which helped to Supply the rebel armies with the munitions of War. Having this does not Cut off rebel communication entirely with Alabama for the Montgomery Railroad running through Alabama intersects at Macon a Hundred Miles further Southeast which connects with Savannah and thence to Richmond by the Seaboard Hue. The tenacity with which the approach to Atlanta has been disputed show however what its importance is to the rebels and its Possession by our troops will Embarrass the rebel operations very seriously. A Wab Hinton dispatch says it is expected by the War department that the 500,000 troops will be forthcoming with in the prescribed time fifty Days and that no draft will be necessary. We have already a credit of one Hundred and fifty thousand men Over and above the previous Calls which will leave but 350, -000 on the draft. Representative recruits re enlisting veterans amp Awill make further important deductions so that it will require Only a vigorous Effort on the part of the people to fully satisfy the demand this is simply incredible. The idea of making the people believe that we can raise 500,000 men during the Short space of fifty Days is preposterous under circumstances and in Tho reduced state of population throughout the country. A vigorous Effort on the part of the people might certainly do a great Deal towards the completion of the quota but that would be All and no Man in the full use of his senses could imagine that the enormous number of 500,000 volunteers and substitutes could be induced into the service. Such an amount would be sufficient and More than sufficient if raised at the commencement of the civil struggle to reduce the Labouring proportion of Buch a country As this is to n very Low degree what then will be the consequence if this number be added to the two millions of men which have already been levied. It is impossible for the country to raise them the draft will come and after the draft will have swept the remaining population off the country ruin and National bankruptcy will stare us in the face. Say what Yon will ruin will follow our Gigantic endeavours and this admins ratio will cease when the country will be drained of All its immense resources or when some sensible Man will be elected to the presidential chair. The four Confederate officers who landed at Cherbourg As prisoners on parole surrendered themselves to the commander of the Kearsarge when that vessel left the port. The prisoners who made their escape to England Are enjoying perfect safety under the Protection of the English government. The Kearsarge has been replaced in the Road Stead by the Federal Corvette Sacramento which is constructed and armed on the same plan As the victorious vessel. Capt.

Tic territories of Colorado and Idaho Are claiming the of some of our wealthiest men of business nine the j Hardy adventurer and the industrious i Emigrant Are watching with a scrutinize i id eve the Progress or failure of trios. J who have preceded them on the Advent Lurous Enterprise. Many and contradictory tire the reports spread about run Kerning those territories and it is difficult As yet in determine which would be the most Nevis Ible a Dan to follow to go there immediately or re main at Home. In our opinion the bit tor would he far preferable to the Fortnet selection at least for tin , of two risks that one is cart duly the safest by Winch your and property is less endangered and for this reason we deem it advisable to wait until the Ai counts Are Citha r confirmed fir denied when a Man can enter of the Enterprise with comparative safety without placing Hia and property in cop Urdy. It is the interest of those who hold land and estates in that locality to represent the country As a land of prom \ ise far surpassing in natural wealth i and resources our most favored states and territories in America even Cal for i Nia itself in order to induce i Migra j lion and by that Means raise the prices of land so High that they could n a a Rich Harvest and till their pockets at the i expense of Liun esl labor. For this read son do they invent stories of miners re turning Home alter having enriched i themselves to an incredible degree and i pretend that the depredations bos j utilities of the indians amount to Noth ing. But the statements of these specs j gators Are daily contradicted by tie sex i Peri enoc and the reports of those who i were so Foolhardy or unfortunate As to emigrate hither without sufficient authority to excuse them for their rashness. The information we receive from these settlers is anything but inviting and by All Means derogatory to the great pretensions of the territory and the speculators who have placed their interests in its future prospects. Thou Sand Are represented As being perfectly destitute of food and the necessary Means of subsistence and All those who Are in a condition to do so beat a Hasty Retreat towards their former Homes. The country is represented As being sterile and Barren and until these faults Are cleared we would advise no one to endanger ids substance and maybe his on such a hazardous Enterprise. Prisoners in fort Lafayette. Accounts have been published from time to time of applications made under the recent act of Congress for the release of persons incarcerated in fort Lafayette by the government through the quot War department. In addition to the cases of Marsh Allen and Palmer an application has been Fiade on the part of Joseph. Binney. A similar return was mide by major general Dix to the order granted by judge Retts in the Case of Binney As was made in the Case of Palmer Viz that the subjects of the application were held by order of the president of the United states to answer before a military tribunal upon charge of violating the common Law of War and of violating the blockade. These returns were demurred to liy the respective counsel As is sufficient in that they did not set Forth the commis Sion by the prisoners of any offence cognizable by a military tribunal. The Points cd timed Are Agnus to the Points urged in the Marsh Case which were fully reported at the time of the argument the main Point in these cases Heinz that the offences for which the accused Are held Are not within the jurisdiction of the military authorities and not cd Giza he by a military Steamer Florida was descried off Halifax on ihe.17 in at bearing Northwest by Captain Charles Richards of the bars Ocean Gem. What induced bpm to con Jade that it was the Florida he saw was the fact that the vessel Ana were the description Given of the Privateer and a bark and Brig near by we a temp a of flt a 3? a different a pot tits Whf by we a few red Eivin g As to the situation of the Florida it would App air that she., in really ubiquitous or that there is More Florida the one Winch later is probably the Case. The foreign policy of it is a curious fact that during the pro Gress of ice late attack upon the ministry of great Britain by the tory party and the affiliated plans of the opposition that the real cause of the non intervention of the government into the affairs of Denmark is not stated or even hinted at by the slightest innuendo. Yet it is Well known that the failure of great Britain under the leadership of lord Palmerston to take a share in the contest does not indicate that the inter meddling spirit of British insolence has in the least been eradicated or extinguished. The conflicting interests and feelings. Which new Divide the court Are the True causes of English forbearance and it is no secret that the Queen and her daughters Are strongly German in their sympathies while the Prince of Wales entertains the liveliest regard for the interests of Denmark in her struggle with so tremendous an adversary. The Princess of Wales it is believed has almost come to an open rupture with her Royal Mother in Law on account of the bitter hatred she very naturally evinces toward the enemies of her nation. Whatever May be the Leeling Sor predilections of the ministry on the subject they Are placed in a delicate position by the firmness with which the Queen Maint nips the germanic bide of the quarrel. The fallacy of the doctrine of intervention has Long ago been exposed to the consideration of americans but the first application of the principle in England arises singularly enough from the Accident of an antagonism of opinion Between Tho Queen and her advisers. By the course which the ministry was forced to adopt their retention of Power was seriously endangered. It Lias required All the address of the Veteran statesman at the head of affairs to extricate his party from the difficulty and maintain his Ascendancy in the House of commons. In addition the Ablest men of All parties have in this instance Given Liitt their support anti chief among them we find the name of John Stuart Mill who in a letter lately published exposes in a manner which indicates the Novelty in England of the sentiments he advances the Folly of the system of intervention. To gives the opinion that a Mere verbal protest or expression of disapprobation is All that is to tie expected from a govern intent not directly interested in n dispute. He combat the idea that great nations should consider themselves As a divine-1 a tip pointed police to oversee the Domestic affairs of smaller countries. It is True that in some cases that the Protection of weak nations from injury might be but it is undoubtedly a sound principle that non intervention is the Correct theory of government. In practice it Lias cheer been found that intervention is made the cover of designs upon the Independence of nations which Are subjected by More powerful Sovereign ties to the operation of their theories. It is doubtful whether tote history of the Century furnishes a single instance where intervention has really benefited the Causo of free government. The interference to be dreaded is that which comes from professed friendliness. When the spirit of Liberty exists in a country at All it always has a i it abundant vigor that it is Able to Lake Cate of itself and Tho people should decline those offers of assistance lii but Are dangerous in themselves. If the people of England to Hatthi be convinced of the Folly of their inter meddling by an of i to quot Sci of the benefits of their position a great and Radical improve ment of the Puldy sentiment of the whole world May result from the change. Sherman a destruction of rebel manufactories. A correspondent with Sherman write the destruction of the Mills at Ross Well proves to have been u very severe ii. to the confederacy Insul Dilion to co flouring Mills which were very i an-1 extensive there wire Large and Well appointed Mills for the manufacture of cloth. The regular monthly of these establishments was 30, \ Ards of Cotton and 15,000 Yards of.ailen goods principally Surh Good As were used by the army. The machinery which was of the Best Ami most improved patterns and inventions was made at la Atterson new Jersy. The Mills were thoroughly destroyed tue opera Ives some three Hundred Ivonen Are thus thrown out of employment and vvi11 be sent North it they wish. It is understood that nearly All of them will Avail themselves of this proposition. From the fact that Johnston left these Mills with All the manufactured and raw Mab Raul accumulated at them is Evl in Nee thut lie did not retire from the k Nesaw with Auy great deliberation. This fart alone is sufficient that he deemed it s position before Marietta one that he in 1 d hold. Considered Only with reference to the injuries inflicted upon the confederacy in the destruction of government manufactories Aud work shops the Campaign of Sherman Lias so far resulted iti immense irreparable damage to the rebellion. The extensive establishments for the manufacture of ordnance and other Mills Ami workshops have been destroyed by Davis the great fou Darjes and Iron works at Etowah and Allatoona by Gen. Behnfield and now the Mills in which the clothing of the army has hitherto been made besides scores of Small Mills and Simp on the route from Reaca thus far. Att Egypt to Burn the Continental. One of the most daring attempts to Burn a Steamer was made at Memphis on last tuesday of which the time of that place gives the following account shortly before nine of clock last evening some daring scoundrel on Hoard the Steamer Continental which had just arrived at this port on her Way to new Orleans emptied a Quantity of inflammable Spint on her Texas near Tho Pilot House and ignited it hastening to the Shore in season to escape from those who were Quick to pursue him. And who by immediate exertion subdued the flames before any great damage was done or the Steamer endangered. A striking feature in this Oase is the fact of the boldness displayed by this outlaw and the heartlessness manifested by him known that a Largo number of passengers were in the Cabin at the time and among others quite a number of women and children. Too much vigilance cannot be exercised by our River men in the future if such cases As this arc not unprecedented. Until the perpetrators of such inhuman acts Are discovered their infamous league broken up and the culpable brought to Justice the exercise of watchfulness and to constant readiness for such occurrences is doubly called for and due those who venture a he Selvas upon the River. The firing into steamers by guerrillas has not thus far proven one half As injurious to the shipping interests on the River As the attempts of these incendiaries. A Friend of ours residing in new York informs us that the peace party Are getting very popular and that their Rauk Sare being strengthened daily accession of immense numbers to their party. He likewise states that the Gerni eral opinion entertained in that Elty is that they most assuredly will carry the Chicago convention and that their candidate will be the next president. Be this As it May it would certainly be very desirable it we could obtain an honorable peace or be blessed with a president who could carry on this War eff a to ally and terminate it speedily. 1 Neva is Paha chaps. _ it would seem to he enough Fot a Man to have his ale without having Ai night his Pillow 1> or drs Nusino officers of.

The stories which were spread about concerning Tho recent peace visit of ool Jacques to Richmond arc at con Fra dated. The romantic tale of his having penetrated into the very heart of Necessia conversed with the leaders of the rebellion and having been Sumptur tit isly entertained at Tho Best hotel in Richmond was All an invention of a Fertile imagination and the hero after a Grent Many efforts could get no farther than Petersburg.
