The Peace Rumors.
It is stated that "Francis P. Blair, Sr.,
returns to Richmond with full authority
from President Lincoln to give a safo
conduct to Washington for Peace Com
missioners from Jefferson Davis." This
slhtement i? made upon questionable au
thority ; but, whethor true or falsest gives
cvWonce, in connection with other oir
cumstanoes, that the popular mind is now
taking into serious consideration the prac
ticability of negotiation between the sec
tions. Wtien newspaper correspondents,
day after day, ttunk it worth their while to
writo and telegraph concerning peace ru
mors and peace propositions, it is safe to
conclude thai the current of popular
thought is tunniDg in that direction. It is
certain that tho pcoplo, of all parties, in
the North, have received the impression
that something is being douo diplomati
cally to bring about a compromise. Mil
lions of anxious hfcarts ore awaiting tho
rcBult of tho mjstorious movements that
conjecture pronounces to bo iu behalf of
negotiation. The masso3,bonding boceath
their load of tbSatiOhrshrinking' from the
terrors of conscription, and mourning for
their slaughtered kindred, listen with
painful Eusf.euso for tho confirmation of
their hopes. If tho missions that they
have been led to suppose wore favored by
the Administration with a view to recon
ciliation should turn out to bo some in
triguo to deccivo them or to complicate
the questions in dispute for the purpose of
giving a Xresh impulse to tho war senti
ment, there will be sore disappointment in
tho land. If tbeso journeyings to and fro,
betwocn Washington and Kiohtnouu, have
really no slgniGcancc of peace, it is tho
duty of the Administration to be frank
with tho pcoplo, and break at once tho
rose-hucd bubble that floats so fascinat
ingly before their eyes.
But, if it be true that Peace Commis

ho must learn to deal with tho relations of i aI1(1 we may therefore expcot, if the soul o(
the sections with a correct appreciation of
of that astounding fact.
Slavery lies at the foundation of South
ern society. That system of labor Is in-1
tcrtwiuod in the Confederacy around all
tho rights o( property. Prodjudioo and
pride bedgo it round about in tho South
ern soul. Attachment and duty have en
grafted it in the Confederacy side by side
with domostio affection. To p'hiclr that
system from their hearts, to tear it from
the very baso of their social organization,
shows a terriblencss of purposo at which
even bloody fanaticism mmtstaud aghast.
The South declares that, bhe Gghts but
for hor freedom. Tho sincerity of that
declaration, she proposes now to place un
der tho proof of a sublime sacrGco. The
republicanism which mado he; States free
and independontjsho vows between clenoh
oil teeth to preserve at the cost of not oii"
ly her hoart's blood, but by the sacriGco

determination placed thus in proof, will
undoubtedly satisfy mankind that tho issue
of tho war henocforth is ono involving tho
sacred right of self-government. The Ab

The Draft and Local Bounties.
But a fow wocks remain before the
Draft General Hancook, in hio specoh
before tho Lcgislaturo the other day, gave
it as his opinion that the Draft is to take
place punctually on the loth of February.
A committee appointed by tho Legisla
ture tb Visit Washington to make an effort
to have tho quota reduced, has returned,
and although no official announcement has
been made of tho fact it is understood tbat
they were measurably successful, and that
the unjust decision of the authorities in
saddling tho enormous quota of near 07,
000 on Pennsylvania has. bein rccallod,
and that the number will bo much less.
Governor Curtin,in his last message took
strong ground against tho j.ayment of lo
cal Bounties, and thd Legislature seems
to bo of tho samo temper. Tho probabil
ity is that tbo law allowing tho paymont
of local Bounties, will 60on be repealed,
and those who so vauntingly said ''volt
for L'urtin and uvovl the Draft" and
lUc-cltct Lincoln. and the tear will be over

The surprhc allegod in explanation of

A terriblo sacriGce of life may in that way
have been avoidedi but theCghtiog subse

consisted of a series of traverses, and
thereforo took the form of a succession of

therefore fought from the time of Terry's
first footing upuu the parapet uutil the
close of the struggle, behind works. For
six or seven hours the battle raged under
circumstances so opp-jllingly unequal.
Tho original force engaged in the attack
was. early iu the evening, nearly crushed.
An additional brigado having been brought
up from tho rear, this lighting was main
taincd with renewed vigor; but. inasmuch
as the contest was about to bo suspended
for the night when the Confederates cvac
ualed the place, even the ro iuforcdmonts
of the original ussailauts uiu3t have been
very nearly shattered to pieces. Four or
Gve thousand men, exposed for so many
hours to a fire from behind breastworks,

otherwise showing that it had becu para

not stated truly in tho reports which sot
them down at nine hundred.

fairly to have fallon in the series ol bloody-
attacks by which the work has bcon car
ried ; and, in consideration of the force
employed in tbeso, load to tho conclusion
that tho losses of the army must amount
to at least thirteen or fourteen hundred.
Tho two hundred deaths confessed to have
resulted from tho explosion of the maga
zine of Fort Fisher, point to the supposi
tion that the number of wounded would
swell the list of casualties on that occasion
to eighf or ten hundred. The cost of tho
capluro of Fort Fisher in men, can cer
tainly not bo estimated by one who wishes
to look at things as they really arc,at less

I hope you will excuse ihe liberty I have
taken in introducing myself, as ciicn in

to speak as well as some of my opponents
I have been a reader of the Columbia
Democrat, for some time past, and always
found it advocating good Union Doctrine.
I have bien a soldier in Uncle Sam's ser
vice since this mis.serablc rebellion has
been iu exi&ienoc, but thank God, I havo
not been abohtionhcl enough so as to ad
vocate all the doctrines of.tho present ad
ministration, neither do 1 ever expect to
advooato them, as long aB we have to
many corrupt qicn at the head of affairs.
I voted against illegal arrests and against
all tho evils of the present administration,
and when 1 did that, of course, I voted
against Abraham Lincoln, our abolition
frionds call him "The Government."
I havo been tramping around a great
deal of Ittto and scon tho evils of Lincoln
and his officeholders in making aircts, ,
carrying people from their homos and
confining them in bastiles, for no pretense )
whatever ; and every such tight I see it
makes me a moro bitter enemy of tho ad
ministration ; so hereafter, as heretofore,!
shall use my energies toward putting down I
abolitionism, and raising the Democracy,'
