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 ..i x e j fri -me interest oi jreeuom. mere was no ais potism, of course, in the old pro-nlavery xnajoriti. 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 pledged. 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 money. 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 Magazine. A few days ago a British officer in uni form went to visit the Kearsage in the port of Deal, in England, and on stepping on board said in a joking manner to the Yan kee sailor who presented arms to him at the gangway : "I suppose this is the first time yon were ever boarded by an Englishman?

A member of Gen. Sherman's army, wri ting from Atlanta under date of the 27th ult., says: "I need scarcely say that Lincoln, 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 ful termination." THE CONDITION OP THE SOUTH. 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.

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.

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 privileges. 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 ri.-e. 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 der. The South would be dominant, and the people of the North would deserve to be driven a-tield, under negro overseers, to hoe corn and cotton lor Southern masters. But no faint hearted or short-sighted pol icy can set aside the eternal decree of the Almighty, who has planted no lines of dis union between the Atlantic and the Ost ein deserts between the great lakes and the Gulf of Mevico lliat siirnifv his will that we should be separated ; and unless so separated peace is a delusion, and its advo cacy a treason against the wisest and holiest interests of our country.
