Daring the pa.-t few days there has Leon
severe fighting between portions of Grant's
army and the rebels. Some time ago Gen.
Grant sent a porton of his forces which de
stroyed and occupied a p .rtion of the Wel
don Rail-road which is the principal Kail
road reaching Richmond from the South.
This seems to be considered a movement of
great importance by both sides. The rebels
have made repeated attempts to retake the
road and drive off our forces but have failed
each time. On Thursday the 25th, another
desperate attack was made, but after a very
severe and bloody engagement, the enemy
were repulsed. Gen. 31eade in 1 is dis
patch says :
"I think I do not overstate the loss of the
enemy in the last two weeks' battles at 10 -00
killed and wounded. We have lost
heavily, but our loss has heen mostly in cap
tured when the enemy gained temporary
ad vantages."
From Mobile we learn that Fort Morgan
is in our possession, but it is not stated how
it was taken. This will certainly give us se
cure possession of the harbor at Mobile.
Sherman is still besieging Atlanta. Gen.
Kilpatrick wiih some cavalry made a success
ful raid by which about 14 miles of the rail
road from Atlanta to Macon was destroyed
and a train of supplies enroute for Atlanta.
Nothing importance has occurred in tLe
. Shenandoah valley, though there are va
rious rumors.
Interview with Jeff. Davis.
On our outside, to-day, we print the con
versation which occurred between Mr. J. R.
Giluiore (better known a3 Edmund Kirke)
and Col. Jacques and Jetf. Davis, while the
former were on a vi.it to Richmond, recent
ly. Col. Jacques is a Methodist clergyman
ot high standing, and he was led to believe
from information he received that the Meth
odists of the South were tired of the war,
desired a return to theold Methodist church
and to the Union, and would aid in resto
ring peace. After some effort through Gen.
Rosecrans, permission was obtained for him
and Mr. Gilmore to visit Richmond and on
their own responsibility ascertain whether
there was any disposition among the rebel
leaders for peace. They proceeded frcm
our lines under a flag of. truce, and were
met at " Petersburg by Commissioner Ould,
wno conducted tnem lucnmonu, wnere
they were well entertained at the Spotswood
House. They addressed a note to Mr. Ben
jamin, asking an interview with the Presi
dent of the '"Confederacy," which request
was granted. But, we will not anticipate.
Let the reader turn to the document itself
and peruse it carefully, and learn what the
rebel chieftain's opinions are in regard to
the war and the terms of peace.
Jefferson Davis' declaration to Colonel
Jacques, "We seceeded to rid ourselves of
the rule of the majority," is but the ex-
Iiression of the anti-republican theory he
ias long advocated. In 1856, at Jackson,
Mississippi, referring to the probable suc
cess of his political opponents in 1800, he
said: "The success of such a party would
indeed produce an 'irrepressible conflict.'
To you would be ' presented-the question,
will you allow the constitutional Union to be
changed into the despotism, of a majority?"
It is singular that the Democratic party has
any sympathy with men who thus repudiate
its principles. This tyranny of the majority,
by the way, has only been mentioned by
Southern leaders, and the majority voted in

The Seven-Thirties What are They.
We trust that a large portion of our read
ers have pondered the Appeal of Mr. Fes
senden, our new Secretary of the Treasury.
The purport of it is that the people of the
United States, acting as a bod through their
arent the Government, wish individuals to
lend them two hundred millions o: dollars
for three years, at seven and three-tenths
p2r cent, annual interest, payable every six
months. For this they offer the Treasury
Notes that is, in, reality notes drawn and
endorsed by every man in the country. The
loan is wanted for a jrreat national purpose,
to effect which even man, unW he be a
traitor in heart, if not in act, is solemnly
The Appeal is addressed not to a few
great eapitalis, but also to many whose ag
gregate means constitute the mass of the
wealth of the land. The notes upon which
this loan is aked are from $50 upward.
Kvery man who has fifty dollars can take
part in this loan. Apart from ..patriotism
and the duty which all owe to their country,
no investnu nt is so desirable as this.
It is secure. Kvery dollar of every man's
property is pledged for the punctual pay
ment of the intere, and of the debt when
due. The security is increasing in value.
For some years before the war we were earn
ing lOOO millions a year more than we spent.
During the three years of war, owing to the
high ju ices and constant demand for labor,
we have earned more than ever before. No
man who could or would work has been idle ;
and. except for the war, we have spent less
than before. The total valuation of the
property of the United States, according to
the censu.- of lSfln, was $lt,15'..(Kij.0MJ. of
which $1 0,057, 44S, "() v as in the Loyal
States. This valuation, according to thcu
sual rule of assessment, was no more than
two-thirds of the ar-tua! cash value of the prop
erty. The increase of the property in the
Loyal States daring the last ten years was o
ver 1'26 per cent., or an average of 12 0-10 per
cent, per annum. In three years of the war
we of the United States have certainly earn
ed 3001 millions more than we have spent
apart from the war. The cost of the war
may be set down at 2M)0 millions. Deduct
ing this from our net earnings, the People
who are security for this loan are 10(H) mil
lions richer to-day than they were when the
war broke out.
Xo other investment can be so easily con
vertible. The man who has a Treasury note
for $50, or $K0, or .1k0, can turn it into
m vney more readily, and upon better terms,
than if if were invested upon bond and mort
gage, or in railroad stocks.
The interest offered is higher than can Vc
realized from any other safe and convertible
investment. It is, moreover, readily collec
table when due. To each note are affixed
five "coupons," or interest tiekets; due at
the expiration of each sueee.-sive half-year.
The holder of a nte has simply to cut off
one of tle.-e coupons, present it to the near
est bank or Government Agency, and receive
his interest ; the note itself need not be pre
sen ted at all. Or a coupon thus payable
will everywhere be equivalent, when due, to
Thus, while this loan presents great ad
vantages to large capitilists, it offers .special
inducements to those who wish to make a
safe and profitable investment of small sa
ving. It is in every way the best Savings'
Bank ; for every institution of this kind must
somehow invest its deposits profitably in or
der to pay intero.-t and expenses. They will
invest largely in this loan, as the best inves -ment.
But from the gross interest which they
receive thev must deduct largely for the ex
penses of the Bank. Their usual rate of in
terest allowed to depositees is 5 per cent
npon sums over $500. The person who in
vests directly with the Govermnet will iv
ceive almost 50 per cent. more. Thus the
man who deposits $1000 in a private savings'
Bank receives 50 dollars a year interet ;
if he deposits the same in this national -vings'
Bank he receives T3 dollar-. For those
who wish to find a safe, convenient, and
profitable means of investing the surplus
earnings which they have reserved for their
old age or for the benefit of their children,
there is nothing which presents so many ad
vantages as this National Loan.
It is convertible into a six per cent, gold
bearing bond. At the expiration of three
years a holder of the notes of the 7.30 loan
has the option of accepting in full or of fund
ing his notes in a fix per cent, gold interest
bond, the principle payable in not less than
five nor more than twenty years from its
date as the Government may elect. For six
months past, these bonds have ranged at au
average premium of about eight per cent,
in the New York market, and have sold at
100 to-day (Aug. 12th,) thus making the
real rate of interest over ten per cent. ; and
besides, to make the inducement even great
er, Congress by special act exempts its Treas
ury notes from state and municipal taxa
tion. Could Shylock ask more ? Was patri
otism ever so liberaly rewarded ? Harper s
A few days ago a British officer in uni
form went to visit the Kearsage in the port

A member of Gen. Sherman's army, wri

is the soldiers candidate, and that we regard
his re-election as the surest, quickest and
best means ot brineine the war to a success

The Eebel Cause TailiDg from Exhaustion
Letter from Gentia!" Seymour, Late a
Prisoner of V ar.
Gen. Seymour, one of the Union Generals
who was placed under fire at jCharlestou,
has written a letter which, for its highly re
spectable statement of the South, should be
generally read. We commend it particular
ly to those who throw doubt upon jhe war
and the Government. Gen. Seymo .r, it is
well known, passed many years of his mil
itary life in the old regular service, in friend
ly intercourse among the Southern people;
and, to within a very short time, has been
reckoned by opposition journals with those
unfriendly to the Administration. Without
saying a word in favor of Mr. Lincoln on
personal grounds, General Seymour clearly
shows, from the convictions of an experience
in the relicl States, that his re-election would
be the worst blow which it is possible for
the North to administer as a people against
the South. lie is convinced, as the Gov
ernment is also convinced, that the "Confed
eracy" is in its worst straits, and now relies
chiefly upon Northern sympathy to secure
its independence by betraying the pacific
Union sentiment.
Wiu.tAMSTouw, Mass., Aug. 15. 1;64.
My Bkau Sir : You ak lor my impres
sions of the present condition of the South
ern Confederacy, and you shall have them.
For the benefit of our cause, 1 wish they
might be impressed upon every soul in the
land, that the confidence begotten of my
three mouth's observations in the interior
of the South might be shared by every man
who has the least connection with the re
sponsibilities of this struggle. And 1 am
sure that these opinions are not peculiar to
myself. Every one of the fifty officers just
exchanged wiii express the same everyone
of them, whether from the jails of Charles
ton, or the pens of 31 aeon and Anderson
ville, will confidently tell the same story.
Tin: ftbtl xiusc ut Jnst failimj front ex
haustion. Their two grand armies have
been reinforced this summer from the last
resources of the South. From every corner
of the land, every old man and every boy
capable of bearing a rifle has been impres
sed, willingly or unwillingly, and hurried to
the lront. lee s army was the first so
strengthened. It wa at the expense of
Hood's. Gov. Brown told the truth will
plainness that was very bitter, but it was
none the less the truth. Let me extract :
few prominent statements Irom his procla
mation of July '.'h. addressed to the '"Re
served Militia of Georgia :"
"A late correspondence-with the Presi
dent of the Confederate States satisfied niv
mind that Georgia is to he left to her own
resources to supply the reinforcements to
Gen. .Johnston's army, which are iudispen
sible to the protection tf Atlanta, and to
prevent the State from beimr overrun by
the overwhelming numbers now under com
mand ot the ederal G eneral upon our soil.
"But there is need of further reinforce

letter of Gen. Johnston. . . . And ir.

send the large cavalry force (now engaged
in raidimr and rcpellim' raid.-) to destroy
Lthe long line of railroads over which Gener

than those of ami ot!tr St i it a in the ('011-
federori, must at all hazards, and at anv
sacrifice, rush to the front.
"If (ien. John-ton s annv is destroyed
the Gulf States are thrown open to the en
eniv, and we are ruined."
There must, indeed, have been desperate
weakness when Georeia, and the bout horn
cause with it. v. ere so neglected that Lie'
army might be made equal to the task of
holding Grant to the 1 oromacor the James,
and the people of the South are intelligent
e. ough to t nderstand and tc appreciate the
fact, and they have lost heart accordinulv.
The following is from a lette written bv
one rebel to another that accidentally fell in
to the hands of one of my fellow prisoners,
and for the authenticity of which I vouch :
"Very few persons are preparing to obey
the late call of the Governor. 1 1 is sum
mons will meet with no response here. The
people are .'oul-sick, and heartily tired of
this hateful, hopeless strife. They would
end it if they could ; but our would-be ru
lers will take good care that no opportunity
be given the people to vote against it. By
lies, by fraud, and by chicanery this revolu
tion was inaugurated ; bv force, by tyrranny,
and the suppression of truth it is sustained.
It is nearly time that it should end, ami of
sheer depletion it must end before tuny. e
have had enough of want and of woe, e-
nough of cruelty and carnage, enough of
cripples and corpses. There is au abund
ance of bereaved parents, weeping widows
and orphaned children in the land. If we
can, let us not increase the number. The
men who, to aggrandize themselves, or to
gratify their own political ambition, brought
this cruel war upon a peaceful and prosper
ous country, will have to render a fearful ac
count of their misdeeds to a wronged, rob
bed, and outraged icople. Earth has no
punishment sufficiently meet for their vil
lainy here, and hell will hardly be hot enough
to scathe them hereaft r."
There is certainly a no small proportion of
the Southern pjople (despite the lying dec
larations of their journals, as we had good
occasion to learn,) that not only favor the
progress of our arms, but that daily pray
that this exterminating war may soon be
brought to a finality by our complete and
perfect success. They have had too much
of despotism not enough of the triumph
promised them. Many intelligent South
ern gentlemen do, in eed, express strong
hopes of their ultimate independence, but
such hope is not shared by the masses.
Disappointed from the first in not having
been acknowledged by foreign Powers more
bitterly disappointed in their general expec
tation that Northern cowardice or dissen
sion would secure their ends, but a single
chance remains; and that is the result of our
next election for President. If a Democrat
succeeds to Mr. Lincoln, they profess to
feel sure of negotiations, and sure of their
Confederacy. They believe a Democrat will
be elected. In Mr. Lincoln's re-election
they see only subjugation, annihilation, for
the war must then contiuue, and continu
ance is their failure and ruin.
In military affairs it is an excellent rule
never to do what the enemy desires is it
not. equally true in politics ? Certain it is
that the only remaining hope of the South
'. in Jr. Jjincoln ft defeat.
Now, 1 am not enough of a politician to
know whether the election of a Democrat
can result as favorably to the South as it an
ticipates. The wi.-h alone may be the pa
rent of their belief. But I assured all who
expressed that lelief that the North, as a
mass, is as united as the South that no
Democrat could be elected on a peace plat
form and that any President who would
inaugurate any measure leading to peace on
the basis of Southern independence, would
be promptly hung, by loyal acclamation, to
the lamp posts in front of his own Presiden
tial mansion.
However that may be. if we are but true
ourselves there ca n be but one result. What
ire note need is men only men not substi
tutes or hirelings who go forth for any mo
tive tut the country's good, and pr.xluce
but little beyond depreciating our armies
but men such as really constitute the State,
and boast of being freemen and the sons of
freemen. If these fail 10J support their
country's cause in her hour of peiil. they
are unworthy of continuing iYeimen, and
should blush ever to exercise a freeman's
But if bounties must be paid, let it be in
Southern land, not in Noithern gold; and
armies of emigrants, whose sons may aspbe
to even the m.eof the nation, wincioss the
seas to win the broad acres that disloyally
has forfeited to the State.
To every intelligent soldier who has f. ught
through all these indecisive campaigns ou
almost numberless indecishe fields, the
question constantly arises, with touch. ng
loice, why we do not overwhelm our ene
mies? Tens of thousands of lives are lost be
cause our array of strength is so dispropor
tionabiy less than that against which we bat
tle. Everywhere we meet on nearly equal
terms, where we might well have four to
one. The cost to us m blood and treasure,
of a prolonged war, can hardiy be fbieseen
the economy is inuiike of such an effort
as the glorious North should put fo th.
The south will ritdit as long as the strug
gle is equal ; it vrili submit to such prepon
derance as we sliouid .- how in every field.
Glance at the summer's campaign. - If
Sherman had but 00,000 more 'men near,
the South would be lost, because Hood
ould be annihilated. If .Meade had mov
ed m the 'spring with reserves ot 75.000 to
100,000 men, Iac would have been hope
lessly crushed. Even at this moment a
third column of 40,( KiO .to 50.0OO rightly
moved, would give unopposed blows to the
Confederacy irom which she could never
What folly then to struggle on in this
way, when we can send to the field five times
the force already there. What weakness to
think we cannot conquer the South. Be
hind the James only boys and old men are
to be seen, while here men buy and sell as
in the olden days of quiet, and regiments
of able-bodied citizens crowd the streets ot
our ehies.
There is but one course consistent with
safety or honor. Let the people awake to
a sense ol their dignity and strength, and a
few months of comparatively trilling exer
tion of such effort as alone is worthy of the
great work, and the rebellion will crumble
before us. Fill this draft promptly and
wiiiinglv, with good and true men ; send a
few spare thousands over rather than under
the cad. and the summer sun of li-05 wid
shine upon a regenerated land.
There are some who speak of peace ! Of
ad lankees the Southerners most scorn are
those who do not fight, but are glad enough
to enip oy them, as they do their slaves, to
perform their dirty woik. J eace lor the
iNjuth will Le sweet indeed ; for us, except
through Southern subjugation, but anarchy
and war forever. The Pacific, the Western,
the Eastern States would at once f all asun

the people of the North would deserve to be
driven a-tield, under negro overseers, to hoe
corn and cotton lor Southern masters.

The above contains a considerable amount
of "buncombe." That a respectable por
tion of Republicans identified themselves
with" the late Coppeihead Peace "move
ment" in this place, has no foundation in
fact, except in the immagination of some
highly excited brain. True, a goodly num
ber of Republicans were in town, just as
they would be were Barnum or Van Am

hither to see and hear the "monster" that
was about to le exhibited, which, we pre
sume, required very little itlerre,,' as it was
announced to be of a "Peace-fool" tendency
and quite docile and harmless.
So then ! We understand that a num
ber of the Copperheads who were in atten
dance ot the "Monster" blow-out, in this
place, on the 1 3th of August, had, concocted
a plan to "throw the Journal office in the
street," on the eveuing of that day; but, as
we still survive, it would appear that their
cowardly hearts failed them before the hour
for our annihilation arrived. Such threats
are in sad contrast with their professions
of "peace, free pre."? and frep speech."
