The following etatement of the mini
r-ricsl strength oi the rebels was made in the
Confederate Congress on the 14th instant:
"Mr. Foster, of Alabama, said that he had
made a calculation that there were euough of
tnen in ch? Confederacy between the ages of
eighteen and forty-five years to protect this
Government against any enemy forty years to
ccme. There were seven hundred thousand
persons if. .e confederacy between eighteen
and forty-five years of age."
PROPOSED TAX ON DOGS.— At the annua)
meeting of the Pennsylvania State Agricul
tural Society, held a day or two since, it was
resolved to petition the Legislature to make
provision for taxing all d<>gs in the State, and
n-k attention of Ihe Governor to the same
subject. During the disc sien upon ih ; s
subject it was slated that such a tax would
produce to the Slate Treasury an annual
revenue of n< t loss than $>700,000.

Constitutional Amendments.
The resolution proposing amendments to
1 the Constitution ot the United States abol
: ishmg slavery, passed ihe House of Reprc- ;
, eentaiivesou Wednesday by the necessary !
two-thirds vote. They had previously piss-I
id the Senate.
Av e fail to see any possible good that can :
, result from this action at the present time. I
j The effect must inevitably be to rno,o firmly 1
end determinedly unite the Southern people j '
in favor < f scnaratinn, at whatever cost, by j
the ndoptim uf the identical policy on the !
part of < ur goveinment which it was charged
by the prime movers in secession, would be
done whenever the abolition party came into ;
power. D will enable the Southern leaders '
to justify their acts before the Southern pco- j
p!e, silence all croaking, and, as a last resort, I
; to themselves abolish slavery as the price of j
j recognition by Franco and England, and the j
• formation of a league by which the Southern J
j Confederacy and the Maxainiliam Empire
wii! become fixed facts. am j t p e power of '
! England on our northern borders be mor
firmly established. It is merely another
: brand thrown into the flame which has burn
ed so fiercely during the past four years.—
. Had 'hey beeu style 1 ''Resolutions to more
: effectually recruit the Southern armies, sup
! pre.-3 the r cent manifestations in favor of
peace, prolong the war, and render a re un
ion ot the States impossible," and framed in
"• "tor 'iiice with 'he title, we d ;u'ut whether

. It is not only an whs and ir.juui ; '
1 c His, but., in the present state of aff.iiis, is ;
impracticable. Like the emancipation j.roc
1 lam.!'ion, it is a '"Bull against a comet."— I
No one who takes the pains to examine the |
political, military and civil position of at
least ont-third of the States which are called
upon to act on this question, can fail to see
that a ratification of measure by an
honest and fair expression of the people is
impossible, and would never have been
dreamed of by any less obtuse and fanatical
body of men than compose the majority in
the present Congress. The number of orga
nized Slates—including the West Virginia
bantling—is thirty five. To secure the adop
tion of the resolutions would require a rna
! jority vote in the Legislatures (or by Con ,
ventions) of twenty seven States. An jec
jeetion by nine States would defeat the
measure. Does any one believe that in the
States of Virginia, North Carolina, South
Carolina Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Miss
issippi, Louisiana, Texa c , and Arkansas, ten
in number, legislatures or Conventions, to
I be elec ed b}' the people will endorse these
| resolutions 7 While in the Slates of Ken
.' tueky, Delaware and New Jersey, where a
innj-.rity of the people arc of the belief that
slavery is a local, State institution, and that
each Sute has the right to manage its in
ternal affairs in its own ways the same difi
culty would perhaps be met with. Nothing \
but the most outrageous and despotic in- j
terferance with the rights of suffrage could !
bj' any posibiiity secure their ratification by i
the States in the manner provided by the !
Constitution. The evil effects of such tneas j
ures, at a time when the efforts of all true I
| patriots are directed to the means by which !
; peace and Union may be restored to the'
country, cannot but be apparent to all. It ,
merely displays the animus of the fanatics j
of toe North, and furnishes fuel fur the fan at- |
ics oi the South, without the possibility of 1
securing any good results— Poltsrilie Stan
A SMART TRICK— A very smart trick has
been detected on the Canadian borders, by j
wliich the revenue of the United Slates was
defrauded. An individual has built his house i
directly on the line, so that the north door is
within Canadian territory, and the south door j
jiu that cf the United States. British dutia-
I ble goods pass freely into the north door,and
i are slipped out of the south door for use in
! the United States. This smart dodge is
j ab"Ut to be stopped by a law of Congress,
by which the fact of building up the bounda
jry line, will, of itself, bo assumed as evi
dence of a purpose to smuggle, and the rev
i enue officers will be empoweaed to cuter aud
| search the premises aud eeiM'the goods.

j From our Special Correspondent,]
WASHINGTON, Feb. 5 18G5.
It is all over now. Abraham Lincoln and
William 11. Seward, commissioners appoint
ed by the President cf the United Stale, bad
a f>ur hours' interview with Alexander 11.
Stephens, R. M. T Ilunter and John A. Camp
bell, commissioners representing the C'onfed
erate States, and the result of it was both
parties agreed to disagree. Did any reason
able man expect anything else '? Was it not
a foregone conclusion that neither would i
agree to or accept the terms ihat the other j
would ask or offer ?
When General Singleton returned from
Richmond he informed those who had confi
dential access to him, that tho South would
not return to the Union. lie saw the lead
ers ol the rebellion, President, Cabinet offi- <
cers, members of Congress, tnd generals in j
the fi- hi, and from them he learned more
than Messrs. B!*ir, Gillmore and Jacques
gleaned ia all their visits to the Confederate
capital. lie was told that the Southern
people entered the contest with their eyes
open and their senses alive to ail that it in
volved; that they mean to be independent,
and would be independent if it cost them a
twenty years'war and all the resources of
their country that they would never vcluu
tarily return to the Union, and had no fears
of being brought back invoiuutarily;
that they would negotiate Ar j
peace at any time, but without abat
ing one iota of their claims; that they were
confident of an early recognition from Europe |
and that if we would anticipate the expected j
recognition from abroad, tht?y would give us j
the preference and compensate ns by < fie ring !
an that would assuredly redound to
the advantage of both North and South.
This is what General Singleton learned
during his stay at Richmond stud it merely
confirmed the convictions of th>se Northern I
men who know the spirit of the Southern
people. Mr. Flair was not taken into the
confidence cfthe Confederate leaders. He
was received courteously, hut with a certain j
degree of formality. lie was tohl that the .
South was willing to negotiate—willing to j
send or receive commissioners, but he was j
not told that they wonid in.-est on set:'.ration.
„ I
This was the result of his first mission lie,
returned and infi rued the President that, if j
he wot.! 1 e m-vnt to receive them, the South j
would send commissioners to deliberate on !
conditions of peace. The President took
the matter into considerate n, and detcroiin
ed toaccept the proposition. Then Mr.
Blair returned to Richmond and commanica
ted the decision to the Prc.-i lent, and the
result was that the commissioners were ap
pointed, and President Lincoln and Secretary
Seward went to meet them:
The meeting was of the most cordial kind.
The three Confederate Commissioners wore 1
old and intimate associates of our Secretary j
ol State, and were r.ot personally unknown I
to the President. After warm and friendly j
salutati the Conimissijntrs, two from the j
north three fioin the South at once entered up |
on the btismccs which brought them together |
The conference was opened by Mr. Seward i
in the guarded method of which he is so
complete a master. lie ask 1 what rue gui
i,i had to older as representatives of the
Richmond Government, and wa3 informed
that that Government was desirous to bring
the war to a close, and wouid willingly ne
gotiate for that purpose. Mr. Seward next
inquired if they were authorized to negotiate
on the basis of the reunion of the States,
and received the reply that reunion was out
of the question ; that the Siuth was pledged
'to mdt and cou Id not accept any
thing else, and that if independence were
granted an alliance mutually advantageous
to both countries would beacceeded to by the
South. This point was argued with great
force by the Confederate Commissioners, and
the arguments were respectfully listened to
by the President and Mr. Seward, but the
proposition was not entertained.
The latter then laid down the ultimatum
of the North. If the Southern Government
would dn-band its armies, dissolve itself,
abandon the idea of a separate Confederacy,
induce the people to return to the Union and
submit to the Constitution as amended, and
resolve itself into its or.ginal elements, that
is, its members resume their status of private
citizenship, if the Southern Government
would do this, then the war should cease, an
amnesty be proclaimed, and tho Confiscation
act be suspended and repealed. These con
ditions were laid down as forming the only
bas'-s on which the North would consent to
a cessation of hostilities, and it is hardly nec
essary to say that they were firmly, and with
becoming dignity, rejected by the Confeder
ate Commissioners.
The Conference lasted for four hours, and
when it closed the parties to it shook hands
and parted, each with sadder hearts and more
serious thoughts that when they came to*
gether. It was conducted in the most friend
ly ami cordial manner, and was free from !
formality of any kind that no written prop ;
csnions or pledges formed any part of it. It j
was purely verbal from beginning to end, i
and no written paper that could hereafter bo '
used to the disadvantage of either section was
Introduced, or now exists. Reunion was the
rock on which these peace negotiations were !
wrecked, and nothing more remains but to
tight on until one or the other of the contend
ing sections becomes too exhausted to con
tinue the contest, or is induced by extraneous
causes to withdraw from it.
Now, that the peace bubble is exploded
the Government is determined to give all its
energies to the campaign that will open in a
few weeks. The draft will b enforced with
ibe utmost vigor, and everything that can be
dene will be done to compel the South to ac
cept what its representatives have just reject
ed. Foreign intervention, which has been so
long regarded as a bugbear by Radical war
men. will not remain inactive much longer.—
It is even said that the Administration has
been advised by European agents that France
io de termined to recognize the Confederate
Government, and will do so before May next,
and that this recognition will be followed by
armed intervention ; and when France takes
this step you may be assured she will have
at her back means that will insure its success
She lent her assi6taoce to the colonists, be
cause she wanted the power of England bro
ken, and when 6he interferes in our quarrel
it will not be because she has any sympathy
with the cause for which the south is fighting
but solely for the purpose of insuring the
downfall of the American Republic, and thus
providing against the danger that threatens
her Mexican empire in the event of the res
toration of the Union.

CURE rou SAJALI. POX The German Re
formed lle<senger lias received a letter from
a friend in China, in which it is stated a
groat discovery is stated to have been recent
ly made by a surgeon of the English army
in China, in the way of gn effectual cure of
small pox. The mode of treatment is as fol
ows : When tho preceeding fever is at its
height, and just before the erupt ion appears
the chest is rubbed with croten oil, and tar
taric ointment. This causes the whole of
tho eruption to appear on that part of the
body, to the lelief of the rest, It also se
cures a full and complete eruption, and thus
prevents the disease from attacking tho in
ternal organs. This is said to be now the
established mode of treatment in the English
army in China, by general orders, and is re
garded as a perfect cure.
