NO PEACE YET.
The rumors, that the Rebel peace com
missioners would only treat on tli3 basis of
recognition ami independence, to which we
referred last week, were well founded, and
true in point of fact. An armistice looking
to rebel independence was their ultimatum.
This of course, could not be granted, and
hence matters remain just as they were pre
vious to the conference. The refusal of the
rebels to return to the Union upon any con
ciliatory conditions, leaves but one remedy
war. That a more vigorous prosecution
of hostilities will follow, we have little
doubt. Although, nothing leading towards
a speedy peace was accomplished by the
President's meeting'these rebel commission
ers, yet, we hope, that good will be the re
sult that the loyal masses will be convinced
that the rebels mean separation, and noth
ing else. If the friends of the Union are
convinced of this fact, then much has been
accomplished thereby, and the result will le
a more united effort in a further prosecution
of the war for the maintenance of the in
tegrity of cur Government. A contempo
rary, in referriug to this subject, sajs:
"As the direct design, ostensibly contem
plated in the President's meeting with the
rebel commis.-ioners, has been announced to
be a total failure, it may be interesting to
notice the effect that has been produced on
the public mind. The mail class of per
sons who had any misgivings about the
President's firmness, are gratified to know
t hat he did not, in any measure, recede from
the position which he has all along consist
ently maintained. Those who, through a
tanguine temperament, were very hopeful
of speedy peace from the effort, have been
disappointed. Yet. they are glad that the
effort was made. The issue has not alarm
ed a single man. As the- war was not of our
seeking, but has been prosecuted, under the
impulse of a true patriotism, for the main
tenance of the Un ton, our people and our
government are, as they have been from the
beginning, ready to close it when it shall ap
pear to have accomplished the end tor which
they fight. The abandonment of the rebel
lion is the way to peace. This has been the
position of tile Government, and the late
interview has shown that this is the posi
tion still, without the shadow of a probabil
ity that it will be changed. We incline to
the opinion that the issues of the late meas
ure arc not yet fully developed.- Tt is no
new thing, in diplomacy, to raise difficulties
on the thresholL The rebel leaders, even
in their days of loyalty, were never remark
able for the modesty of fheir political de
mands. However much they got, they al
ways wanted more, according to the Oliver
Twi-t philosophy. Our President, placable
but firm, is the right sort of a negotiator to
carry on the business with theni : and we
augur favorably of the lesson they have
learned in their late interview with him.
The rebels have been led, by their deceptive
"press, to believe that we are ready to sacri
fice every principle involved in the contest
for the sake of peace. Thjs illusion has
been dissipated by this meeting,and we hope
they will profit by the correction of this er
ror into which they have strangely fallen.
There will have been furnished for them
materials of reflection, in the kind, firm pol
icy of the Government, enforced by the vig
orous and successive movements of-our ar
mies, that may lead them to enter the only
way of peace the abandonment of the re
bellion, by laying down their arms and re
turning to .their duty as good and loyal
Exchange of Prisoners.
We can congratulate the country that, at
last, a full exchange of prisoners has been a
greed upon. We shall now get back frouUhe
horrid prison pens of the South.thousand of
our brave men, who will return with shat
tered constitutions, and for whom we cannot
well do too much in token" of their services
and sufferincs. Since considerations of
public policy have constrained our Govern
ment, to leave these men so long exposed to
the fiendish tortures of an implicable enemy,
the very least that the people can do, is to
make some atonement, by showering upon
them offices of kindness" and tender solici
tude. They are to be exchanged at the rate
of three thousand per month, and we shall
soon see them within our midst, pallid spec-
trees of the gallant men who went forth to
battle for the honor of the flag and the unity
of the nation.
Fire in Philadelphia. Fifteen Per
sons BfRNTTO Death. A fire broke out
on the morning of the 8th instant, in Phila
delphia, among some petroleum stored on a
lot at Ninth and Federal streets. The fire
.commenced at about 3 o'clock, and spread
so rapidly that a number .of persons were
unable to make their escape frouj; the de
vouring element- Fifteen persons are known
to have been burned," and at least fifty fam
ilies are left houseless. This horrid catas
trophe is another warning against storing
coal oil in large quantities, in populous dis
tricts. The Pen a a Legislature acted
promptly in the. matter, and passed a law at
once against storing quantities of oil in
The rumor that Branchville is in posses
sion of Sherman, is credited in official cir
cles. It is also reported that Charleston is
being evacuated, and that Richmond and
Wilmington will be shortly abandoned, with
the view of making a concentrated effort to
crush Sherman while he is in the interior.
According to the investigations of the
committee on the conduct of the war, the
responsibility of the failure of the a.'sault on
the rebel works at Petersburg, on the explo
sion of Burnside's great mine under the reb
el fort, is attributed to interference and dis
arrangement of plans by Gen. Meade.
Deserters from the aimy, who came into
our lines on Friday last, stated that the reb
el artillery on the north side of the James,
in fjnqut of the Union lines, was beiug re
moved, and that the indications were that
Kichmond would shortly be evacuted. Lee's
army is on half rations.
It is said that the Brazilian authorities
have issued a decree excluding the pirate
Shenandoah from the ports of that Empire.
The receipts from internal revenue, during
the first eleven days of February, amount
to over ten and a half millions.
Henry S. Foote, of the rebel Congress,
having made his way within the Union lines
has sailed for Europe. "
Tii-ports of the evacuation of Mobile have
been current, but these need confirmation.
Jefferson Davis' Message.
The telegraph informs us, says the Pitts
burgh CJirouicIc, that the man who styles
himself "President" of a Southern Con
federacy, has sent in a message to a body of
traitors convened as a Congress at Itich
mond, in which he informs said traitors that
the only terms Mr. Lincoln would grant
them, was a liberal and merciful exercise of
the pardoning power. It would be difficult
to imagine what claims these arrogant con
spirators have upon the national clemency,
aiid it is yet more difficult to conceive the
stupendous assurance with which thee dou
ble damned traitors, who.-e garments are
soaking wet with the blood of thousands of
our noblest citizens, assume to grow indig
nant over the offer of mercy, which lias been
tendered them. President Lincoln has
strengthened himself in the affections of his
countrymen by the firmness of his course
towards these guilty wretches, and our sol
diers will see to it, that Jefferson Davis
bitterly regrets the day he'spumed the op
portunity offered him of making atonement
for his crimes, and reccieved ur.descrved
charity at the hands of the people he had
involved in so much slaughter and distress.
The day of retribution is not distant.
The Hatcher Rua Battles.
Thesevere character of these engagements
maybe imagined from the losses, which, on
both sides,, probably reached fully fifteen
hundred men killed, wounded and missing.
Our troops at one time were thrown into
disorder, and a panic seemed inevitable, but
they rapidly recovered, and in the midst of
a driving rain storm, drove the enemy from
pretty strong works which he had extem
porized. The country in which our troops
operated was made up of woods, swamps
and ravines, but, in spite of these natural
obstacles, our brave boys wrested from the
enemy at least four miles of territory, and
made their lines stronger than they had
previously been. We are waranted there
fore in pronouncing these engagements a
substinantial success to our arms.
A Little Sign.
The Washington Chronicle in its late edi
torials, hardly ever loses occasion to pay its
respects to the "Thimble Tagging" game
which Maxairilian, Duke G win and other
adventurers are carrying on in Mexico. It
g"ivc us much pleasure to notice this fact,
for the intimate relations which Mr. Forney
holds with our government, and his known
caution in regard to canvassing public affairs,
favor the belief that he speaks by the card,
and that what he now guardedly says, will,
in due time, be more strongly avowed and
enforced. The people of this country bide
their time with becoming prudence and pa
tience, but they have an inflexible resolution
upon one subject, which bodes no good to
the titled knaves who are preying like a set
of vultures upon unhappy Mexico.
ilaxaiuilian in Hot "Water.
Advices from Mexico-show that the Em
peror Maxamilian is finding his crown pret
ty heavy. State after State has revolted.
Guerrillas swarm over the whole country,
several towns have been, abandoned by the
Imperial troops, and indeed the greatest
part of Mexico will have to be re-conquered.
Maxamilian will have leisure now, to read
profitably the old Spanish story of the "bed
of roses" upon which Guatomozin slept,
and apply to it his own condition. It is re
ported that Secretary Seward, has protested
against the passage of French troops across
the Isthmus of Panama, and we will not
have a very long while to wait, before there
will be other protests that will render the
Austrian adventurer's position even more
uncomfortable than lie now nd3 it.

THE "WAR ISTZETWS.
AEMY OF THE POTOMACV
A SEVERE BATTLE FOUGHT.
" , :
Headqcartes Army Potomac, February
9, P. M. The flight near liaicher's lluu
yesterday was one of the most severe that
has takeu place in this army for some time,
and taken into consideration the unfavora
ble character of the country through which
the troops had to move and the large force
opposing their advance, it is not strange the
enemy should gain -a temporary advantage.
The country, from the crossing of the run to
Dabney s mills, is very woody, with swamps
and ravines running through it in all di
rections, and the only road is a narrow by
road, not wide enougli to allow two wagons,
and iu many places in very bad condition.
Along this road the third division of the
Fifth corns advanced, supported by the
Fiist and Second and also by a brigade of
the Sixth. The enemy were driven to and
beyond the mill on this road, about two
miles from the crossing line of breastworks.
There were no less than four divisions of
the enemy opposing them, viz: Mahone's,
Heath's, l'egram's and Gordon's old divi
sion, the latter three opposing the 5lh, while
Mahone's, acting independently on the
Vaughn road for some time, when Gregg and
his cavalry dismounted and held his oppo
nent back well, inflicting some loss. 31a
hor.e, finding no chance to accomplish any
thing in this position, wheeled and, march
ing on a by-road running northwestwardly,
struck the left Hank of the Fifth Corps,
doubling it up and causing it to fall back on
the center. The woods here being so thick
as to render the formation of a continuous
line impossible, the command became some
what confused. The heavy fire which was
poured in by Mahone's men made things
still worse, and in a moment the entire line
left thix position, falling back rapidly to
wards the point whence they had started.
The fear of being cut off from the crossing
at the Vaughn road no doubt increased the
confusion, and for a short time it, seemed as
though a regular panic had seized upon the
men. But on reaching the open country,
near the A'aughn road, and finding no ene
my there and the bridges all sale iu posses
sion of our own troops, they became reassur
ed, and iu a short time the greater part of
the corps were in line ready to meet the en
emy as soon as he should appear. A few
hours after when they did show themselves
at the edge of the woods, they were met by
such a storm of bullets as to send them
back into the woods xcy quickly. Our loss
during the day amounts to about, six hun
dred and on Sunday two hundred, making a
toial for two days of about eight hundred
killed, and wounded and missing. The loss
of the enemy io not known, but it is believ
ed to be fully as large as'our own. We took
altogether one hundred and eighty prisoners,-including
a number of officers.
The result of yesterday's engagement was
more important than reported in my last
dispatch, the particulars of which were not
known here at the time, when the ftlr Corps
fell back to the line of works at Hatcher's
lluu, on Monday night. The enemy did not
follow very vigorously, nor did they make
any attempt to storm the position. It was
believed however, they would do so yester
day, but up to noon no signs of an attack
appeared, nor did they seem to be in strong
force iu the vicinity. It was therefore de
termined to send a reconnoissanee out over
the ground occupied by us the day previous,
and ascertain where the enemy were, and if
possible force them back-to thcir works at
Dabnc-y Mills. General Crawford's division
of the Fifth Corps, having had the advance
the day before, and being best acquainted
with the nature of the country, was selected
f )r the duty, which they performed to the
entire satisfaction of the commanding gen
eral. The column moved about noon, tak
ing the Dabuey's Mills road, and after ad
vancing about half a mile struck the rebel
pickets, who fell back as our men advanced.
A line of battle was then formed, the right
resting on Hatcher s Hun, an I the left sup
ported by part of Wheaton's command cf
the Cth corps. The entire line then advanc -ed
cautiously through the thick woods, o i
each side of the road, and before, coing far
met the rebels in force, when a sharj
easement immediately began.
were driven back until they took refuge be
hind their works at the mill, where they
made a determined stand. Fighting her
was kept up till dark, when our men
commenced throwing up stiff breastworks to
protect themselves. The enemy did 'not
seem disposed to attack our forces again, as
they had done the day previous, and the ob
ject of the movement leing accomplished by
the development of their position, the troops
were withdrawn during the night to their
former ground on the Vaughn road, in the
vicinity of which strong works have been
erected. The losses in the move turn out
to be quite heavy, considering the small
force engaged. The Third division suffered
principally, the following being the figure :
Killed, officers, 5, men GG ; wounded, offi
cers, 4, men, 58G; aggregate loss, 1,180
officers and men, out of about 4,000 who
went into action. No doubt a large portion
of those put down as missing will appear in
a few days, as is usually the case, the strag
glers always keeping out of the way as long
as possible. The lieavy loss in the division
indicated the mariner in which the men ac5
quitted them elves, jid they have been
highly complimented for their bravery by
their commanding officers. The loss in the
Sixth Corps is not reported, but is very light
they acting as a supporting column rather
than an attacking force.

One Evidence of Exhaustion.
The order issued.by Gen. Lee, calling upon
his rebel friends to rake and scrape together
from every quarter harquebusses, carbines
flintlocks, and blunderbusses, stowed away
since the days of the Revolution ; rapiers,
claymores, stilettos, and halberds, which the
chivalry have used in days of yore for cutting
and slashing one another, pikes, bayonets,
muskets.shot trims, souirrel rifles in short.
everything which can be classed under the
general head of "shooting irons," gathered
from the various battle-fields and treasured
up as relics, to be surrendered to the Ord
nance Bureau, is evidence that the rebels
are running short of arms. Now that Fort
Fisher has fallen, they cannot get them from
England. Their sole dependence, therefore, is
on what they have on hand; and every bat
tle they fight must diminish the iimnJior.
It is plain that, shut out from any further
foreign supply' they must soon exhaust all
the fighting weapons they have.
Rebel treatment of ifad prisoners.
A writer, recently escaped from the south,
writes as follows: The disposition of the
dead was always to us very painful. The
rebels came in with a wagon and took the
corpses out in loads piled two and three high
throwing them about as dead brutes no
coffins were ever furnished, except for a few
citizens. I had some difficulty in procuring
those, and iu answer to a'l my applications,
Quartermaster Mason Morfit replied, "We
don't furnish coffins for Yankees;" but by
perseverance and the plea that these men had
been long in prison and bad been v el! behav
ed, I got an order for thecoffins from another
officer. The men were buried in trenches and
no mark or number was made to distinguish
one from another. None of us were ever al
lowed to go to the grave-yard, although fre
quent applications were made to follow a bro
ther or dear friend to his last resting place.
