did not come here to argue with you, Mr.
Davis. We came, hoping tolblitectizieluna

you say what you do. When rhave aeon T o r
young men dying on the battle-field, =Arm=
old men, women and children starving in their ,
homes, I have felt I could risk MI life to save
them. For that reason lam here,; am'
grieved—grieved—that there is no hope."
" I know your motives, Colonel Jaquee,
and I honor you for them • but what can
Ido more than lam doing? I would give my
poor life gladly, if it would bring peace .and
good-will to the two countries; but it -would
not. It is with yoni Own people you should
labor. It is they - *lo desolate our homes buy
our wheat-fields, break the wheels of wagons
carrying away .our women and children, and
destroy supplies meant for our sick and
wounded. At your, door lies - all the misery
andthe eritne of this war, and it is a fearfur- ,
fearful iitoonnt." •
" Ziot all of it, Mr. Davis I admit a fear
ful edema, but it is not all at our door. The
passions of both sides are aroased. Unarmed
men are hanged, prisoners are shottlown in
cold blood, by yourselves. Elements of bar
baritim are entering the war from both sides,
that should make us—you and me, as Chris
tian men—shudder to think of. In God's
name, then, let us stop it. Let us do some
thing, concede something, to bring about
peace. You cannot expect with only four and
a half millions, as Mr. Benjamin says you
have, to hold out forever against twenty mil
Again Mr. Davis smiled.
"Do you suppose there are twontrmillioris
at the North dete mined to crush us
" I do, —to crush your Government. A'small
number of our people, a very small number,
are your friends ,— Secessionists.: T. e rest
differ about measures and candidates, but are
united in the determination to sustain the
Union. Whoever is elected in November,: he
must be committed to a vigorous prosecution
of the war." •
Mr. Davis still looking incredulous, I. re
"It is 130, Fir Whoert er tells you otherwise,

timent. and I assure you it is so, You kndw
we have a system of lyceum-lecturing in our
large towns. At the close of these lectures,
it is the custom of the people to 'come up ox
the platform and talk with-the lecturer. This
gives him an excellent opportunity of learning
public sentiment. Last winter I lectured be
fore nearly a hundred of such associations,
all over the Nortb,—frOm Dubuque to Bangor,
—and I'ook pains 'to :ascertain.-the feeling
of 'the people.. I found a unanimous de
termination to brush .the 'rebellion
lion and save the Unioi at every sacrifice.:
The majority are in favor of Mr. Liribeln;
and--nearly all of those opposed -to him - tire
opposed to him- because they think he does
not fight you with enough vigor: The radical
Republicans, who go- for slave atffrage - and
thotmgh confiscation, are those whamill de,
feat him if he is defeated. But if he is de.;
feated before the people, the House will.elect
a wotse than—worse, I mean, for you. It is
mote tiadical than he is—you can see that
from Mr. Ashley's reconstruction bill, -- and
the people are more radical than the Hotted.
Mt. Lincoln, I knew, is about to call out five
hundred thousand more men, and b don't see.
how you can hold out much longer;• but—if
you do, you will.only deepen the radical feel
ing of the Northern people. They would now
give you fair, honorable, generous terms; but
let them suffer much more, let there be a dead
man in every house as there is now in every
village, and they will give you no terms,—
they •will insist on hanging every rebel south
of—Pardon my terms. I mean'no offence."
"You give,no offence," he replied, smiling
very pleasantly. "I wouldn't have. -you pick
your words. This is a frank, free talk, and I
like Ton the better for saying what you think.
Go on.", - -
"I was merely 'going to add, that let the
Northern people once - really feel the war—they
do'not feel' it yet—and they will insist on
hanging every one of your leaders."
"Well, admitting all you say, I can't see
how it affects our position. There: . are some
things worse 'than hanging or extermination.
We reckon giving up the right of self-govern
ment one of those things."
, ‘Ely self-government you mean disunion—
"Yes.'.! ' • ,
"And slavery, you say, is no longer an ele
mint in the contest ?" ,
No, it is not. It never was an essential
element. It was only a means of bringing
other .conflicting elements to an earlier cul
mination. IG fired' the musket which was
already capped and loaded. There are essen
tial differences between the North and the
South, that witl, however this war may end,
make them two nations."
"Yon ask me to say what I think. Will ,
you allow me to fitly- that I know the South
very wall, and never observed these differ
ences ?" _
Then you have not used your eyes. • My
sight is poorer than yours, but Ihave seen
them for yeins.". : . •
The laugh was upon me, and Mr. Benjamin
1 . 4 Well, sir. be that as it may, if- I under ,
stand you,. the dispute between your govern
ment. and ours is narrowed down. to: this :
Tinicm. or Disunion."
"Yes ; or, to put it in other words, Inde
pendence .or Subjugation."
" Then the two governments are irreeoneil!
ably apart. They have no alternative but to
fight it oat. But, it is not so:with the people.
They are tired of fighting_ turd - want peace . ;

liker • •
I don't understand you ; a little _more
- Suppose the ‘• two governments
should agree .to something like this To go
to the people with two propositions; say;.
Peace, with Distudon. and,Southern Independ

Union, Emancipation, Na Confiscation,: and .

of all the United States.(as they existed before
the war) vote 'Yes,' or 'No,'.oti, these two pro
positions, at a speci a l election within sixty
days. If a majority vote , -Disunion, our gov

governments can contract in this way, arid
