a dOctimtnt has been pre--nfed wiii.'.h pr

no Ic.i'oie of rcsemblmii c to that which was

and pre i rd-t's lti aihance tiio '.orm an I condi

of "Mo bar iainiug, no negotiali ms, no truces with
llete's, "xeei't to bury their dead, until every
man shall have laid clown hi. anus, submitted to
the Government, und sued for mercy. " What
may be the explnnuiioiiot this Midden and entire
change in tbe i iewsofthe President, and this rude
withdrawal of a courteous overture for negotia
ticn nt the moment it was likely to he a -cepted,
of this emphatic roeall of words ot pcaao just
utter d, and fresh blasts of war to the Inttor end,
we leave for the speculation of those who
have the niesns or Inclination to penetrate tho
mysturiei of his Cabinet, or fathom tho ca
price of his imperial will. It it enough for in to
say that wc have no use whatever for the paper
which has Ik en placed In our hands. Wu could
ni t transmit it to the President of the Confede
rate Statea without olfering him an indignity,
tiitnouoring ourselves, aim incurring tue welt
merited scorn of our countrvmen.
Whilst an urdem desiro for iacc pervades tho
people of tho Confederate S atos, we rejoice to
believe that thero aro few, if any, among them,
who would purchase It at the expeuso of liberty,
honor, and aelf iespcct. If it cuit be securud only
by their submission to terms of cou meat, the
gent ration It yet unborn which will witness its
r stt in ion. II theio be iinv mi'iiary autocrat lu
the North w ho is entitled lo proffer the. conditions
oi this manitesto, there is none iu the South au
thoui d to cut' rmin them.
Th so w ho ron'iol onr armlet are tho tervantt
ol the people, not tbolr uiaaters ; and they have
iiu more ineiiuauou inuu buoy nave rigui to sun
vert the so l.il institute -in of the sovereign States
to overthrow their cttublisbed t onstttutions, ami
tc 1 ait' r awav their priceless heritaire of self-
govt rniiioiit. Ibis correspondence will not.
howevi r, we trutt, prove wholly barren of good
It there Is any citir.cn of the Confederate States
who has clung to a bopo that iwa'C was possible
with this Administration of the Federal Govern
ment, It will strip from his eyos tho last tilin of
such n delusion. Or, If there be any whine
hearts have grown faint under tho suffering and
ngony of this bloody struggle, it will inspire
ilieni with fresh energy to endure and brave
whatever nuiy yet be requisite to preserve to
themselves and their children ul that
gives dignity and vitlno to life, or hope
and Consolation to death. And if tuero benny

we proy that In their bosom a resolution may be

Is noihlug from t ur side. We have not botrd

wbitbei the "invasion" Is yet done, although
