Ak u copperhead what males pvicc3 so high, and ho will generally give, a eweepiDg answer that it is "Lincoln's war." Ask a loyal man the same question, and ho will tell you it is the gold gamblers and speculators. Men very often answer financial questions without going through the formula ot tracing causes to effect;. In common parlance, they jump at conclu sions, which are apt to be erroneous aa frenuenilv a3 thev arc correct. It ia well understood the gold i - - - . Of New York arc a pack of despicablo traitors, who since the commencement of the war have had hut two objects iu view, namely, to embarrass the Government in every possible manner, and io fill their own pockets. Eut their power for evil is a limited one Let us inquire what hr,3 enabled Wall Street to run up the rates cf gold, as they have done, and thus com pel twenty millions of people to pay trib ute in the shapo of exorbitant prico3 for everything they use. The answer is at hand the hijh rates of eichanjc. Had there been uo foreign demand fur gold, it would nev"erhavc reached a figure high er than twentj-five per cent, of an advance. What has made exchange with other na tions high ? Not simply the fact that our foreign debts have to be paid in gold and silver. This would not trouble U3 at all, if the balance of trade were not against us; and here has been the whole trouble, and the cause of all our financial distress. Ye have imported more than, ice have ex ported, and the demand for gold to pay the balanca against us has enabled the New York gamblers to do what they have done. Our fathers and mothers in the times of the .Revolution, becauso the British im posed a tax, on tea, went icithout it for years. The same patriotic sentiments brought into practical use now, would save us hundreds of millions of dollars. "With out practising an iota of self-denial, the great bulk of what we pay to other nations in gold might be kept at home. If our people had the patriotism to dispense with luxuries ia dress and living during the war, our exportations iu products would pay our foreign debt, and gold range not above 1-5. Instead of this, however, American men and women have gone and are- going headlong into extravagance, without a particle of regard to economy or prudence. The world never saw such financial recklessness as i3 exhibited by this nation at the present time. Men arc abandoning in disgust their former com fortable homes, and arc building marble palaces, costing millions of dollars, upon which are lavished other millions of dol lars in the shapo of imported furnishings to correspond. In articles of dross, every thing is upon the same scale. American goods are passed by with a contemptuous sneer, and the most costly foreign fabrics' brought into requisition. Women sweep tho street with dresses costing thousands, with other thousands added in the way of adornment. Since the commencement of the war, men have made fortunes at a single turn of the wheel ; but instead of saviug tbese, they seem determined to rashly throw them away. It seems to be the prevailing rule that where men make money fast, they f l end it faster. There exists a widespread mania for fobbing greenbacks, but this noes not nearly cqal the mania for get ting rid of them when once accumulated. The result of this state of ;i;ini:s through out the country has been the consumption cf a large amount cf imported goods, which, has drained- the country of gold, xr.ado the article scarce and high-priced, and enabled speculators to carry every thing" before them. Iu this way, the many have been virtually robbed of rail lion?, to the enriching of the few. The question is asked, When will goods full? We venture the prediction, not so lonjr. as speculators, aided and assisted by a foolish and extravagant public, can pre vent. The only remedy is to retrench. 15a Icfs extravagant- -more saviug. Live in your old house until building matciials come down to reasonable prices. Do without luxuries. Wear hist vcar's coat and hat another season. Economise, both in dress and living, and patronize only home manufactures. A general move ment in this direction would do more to ward leducirg prices to the old standard than all the legislation in the world. 5omctIi!zi OCIciaZ About the Peace e33esloii. The President has sent into Congress a full and detailed narrative of the late Peace Conference, covering all the corre spondence on either side with regard to the subject. The document .is too long for our columns, so wo are obliged to forego the pleasure of printing it this Week. Wc learn from this narrative that the Peace negotiations were the result of Mr. Blair's mission to Richmond. That gen tleman was given no authority to speak to tho rebel leaders on behalf of the Gov ernment, further than to say that Peace Commissioners would bo sent or received whenever it was known the rebels desired to end the war by a reconstruction of the. Union. It wa3 iu pursuance of a general understanding to this effect that Jefferson Davis despatched Messrs. Stevens, Hun ter and Campbell tu confer with our au thorities, These Commissioners arrived in front of our Hues ou the 0th ult., where considerable correspondence took . place before it was decided to admit them. Indeed, the President at one time had concluded to send them back, thinking they did not desire peace on any available terms. Rut at this juncture, Gen. Grant telegraphed that, after a long conversation with the Commissioners, he wa3 satisfied they wcro honest iu their professions, and desired Peace on the basis of the Union. Thiii changed the purpose of the Prcsi ident, and he decided to meet them. The conference took place at Hampton Roads on the Cd, and, as is well known, was a failure. The following is the President's version of the result of the meeting : "Ou tho morning of February 3, the three gentlemen, Messrs. Stepheus, Ilun tcr, and Campbell, camo aboard of our steamer, and had an interview with the Secretary ot State and myself, of several hours duration. No question of prelim inaries to the meeting was then and there made or mentioned. No other person was present. No papers were exchanged or produced; and it was in advance agreed that the conversation was to be informal and verbal merely. On our part the whole substance of the instructions to the Secre tary cf State, hereinbefore recited, was stated and insisted upon, and nothing was raid inconsistent therewith; while by the other party it was not said that in any event, or on any condition, they ever would consent to reunion, and yet they equally omitted to declare that they would not consent. They seemed to desire a postponement of that question and the adoptiou of some other course first, which, as souiC of them seemed to argue, might or might cot lead to reunion, but which course wc thought would amount to an indefinite postponement. The conference ended without result." The ''instructions to the Secretary of State" adverted to were as follows : Hon. H'm. II. Seicard, Secretary of Slate: You will proceed to Port Monroe, Va., there to meet and informally confer with Messrs. 'Stephens, Hunter, and Campbell on th basis of my letter to P. P. Rlair, Esq., of JauuarjT 18. 18G5, a copy of which you have. You will mal:e known to them that three things are indispensau'e, to wit : First. The restoration of the Datical authority throughout all the State3. Second. No receding by the Executive of the United States on the slavery ques tion from the position assumed thereon in the Jato annual message to Congress and in preceding documents. Third. No cessation of hostilities short of an end of tho war and the disbanding ot all the forces hostile to the Government. You will inform that all propositions of theirs not inconsistent with the above will be considered and passed upon in a spirit of sincere liberality. You will hear all they may choose to say, and report it to me. You will not assume to definitely consummate anything. Yours, &c, A. LINCOLN. OFFICIAL RErOST CF THE CONFEDERATE COMMIS SIONERS. We subjoin the report of the rebel Commissioners : To the Senate and House of Representatives of the Confederate States of America : Having recently "received a written notification which satisfied me that the President of the United States was "dis posed to confer informally with unofficial a-'ciit? that might be neft by me with a view to the restoration of peace, I requested the Hon. Alexander H. Stevens, lion. R. M. T. Hunter, anJ Hon. J. A. Campbell, to proceed through our lines, and to hold u conference with Mr. Lincoln, or such persous as he might depute io represent him. I herewith submit, for the information of Congress, the report of the eminent citizens above named, showing that the enemy refused" to enter into negotiations with the Confederate States, or any one of them separately, or to give our people any other terms or guarantees than those which a conqueror may grant, or permit us to have peace on any ether basis than our unconditional submission to their rule, coupled with the acceptance of their re cent legislation, including an amendment to the Constitution for the emancipation of al! negro slaves, and with the right on the part of the Federal Congress to legis late on tho subject of. the reldtions be tween tho white and black population of each State. Such U, as I understand, the effect of tho amendment to the Constitution which has been adopted by the Congress ci the United States. JEFFERSON DAVIS. Executive Offics, . " Richmond, Peb. C, 1SG5. f Richmond, Feb. 5, 1BC3. To the President of the Confederate States: Sxil : Under your letter of appoint ment, of the 2Sth ult..- we proceeded to seek an' informal conference with Abra ham Lincoln, President of the United States, upon the subject mentioned in your letter. The conference wa3 granted, and took place on the COth ult., on board a steamer anchored iu Hampton Roads, "where wa met President Lincoln and the Hon. W. II. S&ward, Secretary of State cf the Uni ted' States, ' It continued for several hours, and was both full and explicit. We learned from them that the message of President Lin coln to tho United States Congress, iu December last, .explains clearly and dis tinctly his sentiments as to the terms, con ditions, and method of proceeding hy which peace can be secured to the people, and we were not informed that they would be modified or altered to obtain that end. We understand from him that no terms cr proposals 0 any treaty or agreement, looking to an ultimate settlement, would t)o entertained or made by him with the authorities of tho Confederate States, because that would be a recognition of their existence as a separate power, which, under no circumstaucc?, would bo done, and, for like reasons, that no such terms would be entertained by him from States separately ; that no extended truce or armistice, as at present advocated, would be granted or. allowed without satisfactory assurance iu advance of the complete res toration of the Constitution and laws of tho United States over all places within the States of the Confederacy. That whatever consequences may follow tho re-establishment cf tht authority must be accepted, hut that individuals, subject to pains and penalties under the laws of the United States, might rely on a very liberal use of the power confiJed to him to remit their paias and penalties, if peace be restored. During tho conference, the proposed amendments to the Constitution of the United States, adopted by Congress on the 31&t ultimo, were brought to our notice. These amendments provide that neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except for crimes, should exist within the United States, or any place within their jurisdic tion, and that Congress should have power to enforce this amendment by appropriate legislation. Ot all the correspondence that prece ded the conference herein mentioned and leading to the same, you have heretofore been informed. Very respectfullv, vcur obedient ser vant?, ALi:X. II.

A Nashville correspondent cf thcCiccinnati Gazette tcl's the following story cf the murder of Sergeant Arthur Lyon of the 15th Pennsylvania cavalry by the notorious rebel General of the same name, on the 15th ult, in Marshal county, Tennessee, just south of the river: 'The rebel trcops under Gen. Lyon having, on the 15th of January, reached what they supposed to be safe ground after their long and profitless raid through Kentucky, w.nt to rest with a great feel ing of security after reaching the south bank of the Tennessee river. The detach ment of the 15th Pennsylvania cavalry having watched their movements, sur prised their camp before day on the mor ning of the 15th, with the best results. A perfect panic was produced, and near one hundred and fifty prisoners taken. Sergeant Lyon, always foremost on such occasions, fouud the quarters of the rebel General, aud entering fearlessly, captured the prize before he had risen from his bed. The General surrendered himself to his namesake, delivered up the arms which he said were all he had, and then asked permission to dress himself. This the Sergeant granted as an indulgence due one of his rank, who had, with apparent honor, surrendered his arms ; hut beiur dressed, ho took advantage of the indul gence, and with a revolver he had kept concealed under his pillow, killed the gallant Sergeant and made his escape through a back window. "Thus a "high toned" gentleman of the Southern chivalry a general in rank added murder to the ignominy of his das tardly perfidy and infamous cowardice. There i3 no justification for his treachery. An Indian would scorn such an act, for a savage knows enough of honorable war fare to know that the coward only, and the black-hearted coward alone, will take advantage of his captor by treachery and lies." James Buchanan, at a remote pe riod of our history President of tho Uni ted States, reports bis income for tho last year as having been 11,111. CThe ceremony of counting the electoral vote took place at Washington on Thursday last. girftTbe draft has not been postponed. Tragedy In Washington City Jealousy aad Revenge. Another of those dreadful tragedies for which Washington city is rapidly becom ing famous, occurred there a few days hiiice. A young lady named Mary Har ris, of Rurliugton, : Iowa, very preposses sing in appearance and la'dylikcin manner, shot dead a clerk in tho Treasury Depart ment, named' Burroughs. The deed was done ia broad daylight, in one of the main halls of the Treasury building. - Miss' Harris used a four-barreled revolver, aud fired two shots at her victim, both cf which took effect. ' The cause of the deed is eushrouded in mystery, save what littla light i3 thrown upon it by Miss Harris. She states that there never has existed any improper intimacy between herself and Burroughs. This she reiterates on all occasions siuco the homicide. She says that when yet a child, Burroughs was a visitor at her father's, acd that she used to sit on his lap in presence .of her parents, and that he had always -taken great iuterest iu her. As" she grew up, his attentions became nioro those of a suitor, which her parents opposed, because he was rich, she poor, he a Protestant and she a Catholic. She says he frequently asked her to marry him, which she refused on account of her age and the wish of her parents. Still he always protested his ardent affection and determination to make her his wife. They corresponded together after Bur roughs hud left Burlington aud gone to Chicago. Some two years ago, at the re quest of a Miss Devlin, a f riend of Mr. Burroughs, she went to Chicago, where she saw Mr. Burroughs. After that, there rises a heap of mystery about anonymous notes, which she believed were written by Mr. Burroughs with the design of entic ing her into a notorious house in Chicago. On account of these uote3 she says she felt . the most intense anxiety to be fully satisfied, as to whether he whom she had so leved and who had so protested his love for her could be guilty cf such baseuess. Then she determined to prosecute him for breach of premise, and shortly after, some years ago, she learned that he was married to a young lady and had gone to Wash ington to live. Iu the mean while she was disowned by her parents, and her old friends and acquaintances would have nothing to do with her, because she was suspected to have had improper relations with Burroughs, which was never so. So, bent on vindicating her character, the re solved to come on to Washington and bring suit against Burroughs. In Chicago she bought the revolver. After her avrival here, she became frantic to see him, and disguising herself in a "Nubia" and veil, went to the Treasury. The rest is given in her own language : : "When I went into the Treasury build ing I inquired for the room in which Mr. Burroughs was, and having learned that, walked up and down the hall for some time. Ouce I went to the door of the room, opened it a few inches, and saw him at his desk. The moment I looked at him, sitting there so comfortably, the thought cf all I had suffered, and of his being the cause, enraged me, and my hand involuntarily pulled back the trigger of the pistol in my pocket. I closed the door, and, stepping away, moved about agaiu, I knort' not how or Avhere, except that I kept my eye on his room until the men began to come out of their rooms. Then I placed myself where I knew he would have to come rear me in going to the staircase. AY hen he appeared, I felt sud denly lifted up ; my arm was extended as stiff as iron, and I saw him fall. I knew nothing more ui;til I was called back as I wis leaving tho buiidiog." E3, Governor Curtin has tent a special message to the Legislature, ia which he says : Arrangements having been perfected by the National authorities, under which supplies for our volunteers, now prisoners in tho South, can bo forwarded to them, 1 think it right to annouuee the fact to our people through you, and that the State authorities can and will, under existing laws, defray the expense of transportation of all supplies which they may send to this place, and forward the same to the places designated as far as it i3 practicable. The prisoners, it is well known, are in want of food, clothing, and ia fact all the necessaries of life." -This is a rare opportunity, and the friends of the suffering prisoners will be suro to avail themselves of it. All that is necpssary, in selecting supplies, is to select such articles a3 will be most useful to the prisoner?, and such as can be put in the most compact shape of forwarding.. &The St. Louis Republican says Brig. Gen. Rhoddy, who has earned a high rep utation during the war as a partisan cav alry commander, and who has co-operated with Forrest in-several important opera tions, grew tired of the contest a few weeks ago. He found means to communicate with the federal authorities, and through them procured a full pardon from the President as a condition precedent to lay ing down his arms. Ho will probably soon he heard from at his old home iu Tennessee. - S5The port of Fernandina, Fla., is designated by Secretary Fessenden, with the concurrence of the President, as a place for the purchaso of products of the rebellious States on government account, and a purchasing agent to be located there ha3 been appointed. The Everett Monument Fund now arnounts to 829,000. ' The Military Situation. Tlie Army and Navy Journal makes a calm review ot the military situation, with some sucrffestions as to the probable course of the spring campaign, which are well worthy of attention : "Wo regard Grant and Lee about equal iu strength, considering the tasks imposed upon each. Bach, by position, is in a con dition to resist all possible aggression; and neither, therefore i.s prepared to make :aiy vigorous and ttecisive a-utrcssivc movement with ai;y reasonable chauco of success. He consider lhomas and lioou to b nec- essarily out cf the sphere of the present operations. The former, because he has been wisely depleted to re in fore Sherman ; the latter, because of his immense iosse in men and material durim- his failure iu ! ized force capable of confronting him with probability of success, threatens so :iiar;y important points in the enemy's territory, that concentration to oppose him must mean the abandonment of positions of con siderable importance to us." Sherman's ultimate object is new Rieh mond, and his advance, upon that point may occupy three mouths or possibly six, but not more. His dangtr will come in the ppriug, when he is far enough ad vanced to have Wilmington as his" b:se: "Lcc, by evacuating Petersburg, aud contracting his lines round Richmond, or it the emergency shall have proved great enough, and the force at his di;-pOr:u.l too meagre to justify even leaving a .str?!! garrison in Richmond by abandoning his capital altogether, might endeavor to fail upon Sherman with superior forces. If he succeeded in defeating him, he could gather up the scattered garrisons of Au gusta, Charleston and Wilmington, ni;d would probably outnumber Grant and temporarily restore the condition of affaire to a mere equal balance. If Shennnn, finding himself outnumbered, should ma neuver to avoid battle, aud to connect him self with Grant, it would bo nearly impos sible to compel him to fight ; but he might be forced to leave the road open to the West. A drawn battle would give fhe same alternative to Lee. This would insure us Virginia and the Carolina, but would transfer tho conflict to Western ueorgia, viaoama, ui.-?is.mr.pi ar.a lcv.-j nessee, where our long line of com muni- cation places us at every disadvantage, and wheie, with determination, a prolonged resistance, exhausting to both parties, would be tho re-'ult. This is the utmost which we think the enemy's military possibilities permit him to accomplish." Massacre of Ncgro Soldiers. The Louisville Journal confirms the rua-sacre of thirty-five-negro soldiers by rebel guer rillas near Simpsonville, Ky , reported by telegraph a few days ago. They were guarding a drove of government cattle on the way to Louisville from Camp Nelou. The day being cold, and no danger being apprehended, the soldiers were allowed to straggle along by themselves, while their officers stopped tu warm at various houses on the road. One-half of the command marched iu front of the cattle, while the other portion kept in the rear ot the drove. The cattle and tho gu;ird were not fur from Simpsouville, when fifteen guerillas dashed upon "the party guarding the rear of the cattle, taking them completely by surprise. It is presumed the negroes surrendcrrd and were shot down ia cold blood, us but two of the eutiro number escaped one of them by secreting himself behind a wagon, the other by runuing, as he was mot rov eral miles from the scene of the tra-rcdy, wounded and nearly exhausted. Thirty five dead bodies were counted lying in tV.ii road and vicinity. It was a horrible butchery. The guerillas returned to Simp sonviile without one of their number wounded, and reported that they had killed twsnty-five of the negroes. " They then moved off in another direction. mm oao"- giThe President has appointed Hon. E. D. Morgan, of New York, to be Secre tary of the Treasury, in place cf Zlr.
