uio uierican peopio, on each side of the
dividing hno, "aDxiounly, absorbingly do
siro peace, and are ready to make all nood
ful sacrifices to insuro it," tho further
continuance of tho war is a reproach to
tho authorities who stand in tho way of
realizing this ardent wish of the country.
According lo tho view of the Tribune, the
nation is cheated out of peace by the un
willingness or tho inability of tbo men in
placo on each side of tho line to effectuate
the anxious, absorbing desire of their
countrymen : and yet. with sincular in
consistency, tho Tribune proposes to remit
uio question ot peaco into the hands of
tho "reuel chief" on tbo ono sido, and of
1 rosidont Lincoln on tho other ; for, when
it says "let us know, ns soon as niny be
the most that the rebel chief will do to
secure peace," and immediately add.,
"let ua next ascertain what Is the ultima
tum on our sido," ire Bupposo it intends
to leave the "ultimatum" of the loyal
States to bo tixod by Mr. Lincoln, as it
assumes that the ultimatum of the seceded
States is to be fixed by Mr. Davis.
Vo havo many and, as we conoeivo,
weighty objections to this proposition. If
"two thirds of the people on each side of
tho dividing line anxiously, absorbingly
desire peace, and are rcadtt to make all need.
'Jul tacrijiccs to insure it," we must insist that
the tonus and conditions of peace should
be ascertained and concerted by tho poo-
plo tb.omm.lves. We already know the
umui.uu... , ,f , j ,
being such as to leavo no laoo o
during h:s Administration, wo aro not at
all curious to know tho "ultimatum" of
Mr. Davis, which we think it very likely
would as little reflect tho popular will and
wish ou bis side, as tho President has
littlo reflected tho popular will and wish
en our biuo t y tno supplementary cuuui-
lion ho ha9 ncnounced as the ground on
which ho will receivo any propositions
looking to "peace and the integrity of tho
wholo Union." If peaco'is to be sccureJ,
its torms tnut be ascoriaineu ny uioso
who, as tho Tribune fay?, "aie willing to
muko all needful aacriliees to insure it
that iJ by the peo;lo themselves. Who
but the peopio oil e;toh liiJo can determine
what sacnlice luey deem to bo "neeuitu
for the assured restoration of pence? Wei
aro very sure that two thirds of the people
on our sido of tho "dividing lino" would
have no hesitation in "iaenlicmg" many
things which President Lincolu is not
prepared to sacriticn, iu order to secure
peaco. lie is so haniperod by his "procla
mations" and pledges that of all men lie
is most disqualified to appronch the con
sideration of this subject, for what audi
ence could ho expect to receivo from the
peopio of tho seceded States in commend
ing"to their adhesion terms which, it js
safe to say, aro considered by u majority
of the pepple cvon in the loyal States to
bo as little proper for tho President to
offer ns they aro littlo likely to be accept
ed by tho parties to whom they aro ud
drossod ?
It is clear to our minds, therefore, that
if any negotiations are to be sot on' foot
with a view to ponce, they must bo pre
ceded by n rhupgo of front on the part of
those who direct tho civil Administration
of the country. The present policy of
tho Government in tbo conduct of the war
must be reversed by a return le tho prin
ciples and maxims which have been left
out of sight in what the New York Times
calls tho "blind race of radicalism and
baibarimu." Wo know that President
Linooln does not yet perceive tho neccs
aitv of such a reversal. Ou the contrary,
he'has within the last few weeks commit
ted himself bv his late manifesto moro
v lhan ever beforo to the logical
conclusions of the policy that now dictates
tho ends and objects of the war.

As thero wcro many who, at tho begin
ning of the secession agitation, avowed
their willingness to refer all questions at
issuo between tho North and the South to
tho arbitration of a National Convention,
so at every stage of tho war which has
followed it has been supposed that, what
ever might bo its result, a National Con
vention would bo called to readjust our
nrpanic nolicv with reference to the alter
ed relations left by tho war. And if
regard be had to tho subject-matter of the
dissensions out of which tho war grew, it
would Boom that they could, in tubstance
and in form, be most properly allayed by
a free conforence of the States composing

to far as our own views extend in this di

to this expedient until it should bo de
monstrably clear that the grent mass of
tho people of the South aro no less disaf
fected towards "the Constitution as it is
and the Union as it was" than wo
know to be tho case with tho anti-slavery j
party of the North. In that evnnt. with I
such a concurrence of antatrnniKm fn Mm

grent reaction of public sentiment at the
North, wo are not without hope that,
under auspices calculated to produce it.
there miht be an coual reaction nt tl.n
South dispensing with tho necessity of
calling a National Convention. It could
be called only by tho concurrent voico of
tne Legislatures of two thirds .t tbo

of Congress, und it would have to bo pro-

A SnocKisu Accident at the Commer

Yesterday morning, about 0 o'clock,
one of tho feeders in the Commercial office
a German girl, namod Luceita liossa
met with nn nceidont which terminated
her lifo in the most horriblo manner.

inexperienced ieouer, the ukirt or the un
fortunate female cauehton ono of the
shafts which drive the pondorous pros.

her transition. Instantly her clothing
was wound up firmly upon its surfaeo.and
tho poor girl, hurled from her feet, was
carried around several revolutions striking
ner neau owl body wnh tcrriho loree upon
the floor. The press was stopped quickly

Several revolutions wero mado after tho
discovery of her cntangVment, and the
first revolution winch hurled tho poor
creature to the floor must have proved fu-
several ol tbo giris working on the
press at the time swooned away nt tho ter
rible sight, and wero removed, helpless
from tho spot. The mangled body of Lu
cetta was cut loose from tho shaft, bo-
ing firmly held by the clothing closoly en
twined upon its surface. The head is com
pletely crushed, and the whole body ter
ribly mutilatod. An examination of tho
spot whero the nccident occurred fullyac-
counts for tho terriblo result of tho casu
ally. Tho shaft ia only a littlo ovor two
feet from the platform, and each revolu
tion threw tho whole uppor part of tho
body with teriiblo force upon tho floor.
Ono of tho workmen, who saw tho acci
dent, states that tho unfortunate cirl
struggled to free herself of tho Bhaft, but
lulled, and tho noxt instant ho heard her
boily striko tho platform. Cincinatti E-
