THE FORTRESS MONROE CONFERENCE.
The Augusta, Georgia, Chronicle and Sen
tinel, of the 7tn, gives a full account of the
conference at Fortress Monroe in January.
The article is a full statement and is under
stood to have been prepared at the instance
of Mr. Stevens. The Chronicle and Senti
nel states that Mr. Dana did not communi
cate to the public the truth concerning the
conference. Stevens says Davis first sent
for him to say that Mr. Blair desired a con
ference between the United States and the
South on the subject of peace, and asked
Stnphens' advice. He replied that if Mr.
Blair spoke by authority of Mr. Lincoln he
moat earnestly advised the conforence, and
that tbe strictest secrecy be used, and that
tbe parties composing tho conference be
Presidents Lincoln and Davis, and that
Generals Grant and Lee be the only
persons in the secret. Davis disregarded the
advice and Stephens was informed two
days later that himself, Hunter and Camp-
boll were to go, Stephens did not wish to
go, but did so to avoid unfriendly remarks.
Tbe threo Southern gentlemen mot Messrs.
Lincoln and Seward, and after some re
marks tho subject of peace was opened.
Mr. Stephens urged the claims of his sec
tion with skill and address for which
Northern papers have given him credit.
Mr. Lincoln, holding tbe vantage ground of
conscious power, was perfectly frank, and
submitted his views almost in the form of
argument. The Commission made a repor
saying that Lincoln referred them to his
message of December last, and refused, in
any way to recognize the Confederacy or
acknowledge Davis's power to make peace.
Lincoln assured them they might rely on
a liboral exercise of his pardoning power.
He suggested it would be far better for the
rebellions States to return at once than to
risk the chances of continuing the war and
incressing the bitterness of Congress. Mr,
Stephens reported to Davis that nothing
had boon done, but that nothing had been
determined, and if herelied on the secrecy
of the Blair conference it was but a confir
mation of a desire for peace on the part of
the United Slates, and the way open for sot-

saae Holmes, Geo. W. Williams, W. Hi
i I lett, J. A. Hernmeiser, F. Richards, Jas.
Taylor, R. Gill, aad James A. Yates.
They had an interview with the President
late this afternoon.
The President said that it was his inten
tion lo speak plainly, so that there might
be no misunderstanding, therefore it was
better that they should look each other
fall in the face and not imitate the ancient
argners, who, when they met one another
could smile at their success in deceiving
people. He said if this Union was Jto be
preserved it must be on the principle of
fraternity. A Slate cannot go oat of the
Union, and, therefore, none of them having
gone oat, we mast deal with the question
of restoration and reconstruction. He
peeled that he was a better State rightsf
man than some of these now here. He al
ways thought that slavery could not be sua
tained outside of the constitution of the
United States, and that wherever the ex
periment was made it would be lost.
Whether it could or could not, he was for
the Union, and if slavery set itself ap to
control the Government, the Government
mnst triumph and slavery perish. The in
stitution of slavery made the issue and we
might as well meet it like wise and pa
triotic men ; institutions must be subordin
ate to the Government, and as slavery,
had given way, ha could not, if he would,
restore it to its formor position. Knowing
that some whom be now addressed look
on him as a great people's man and a radi
cal, but however unpleasant it might be to
them, he had no hesitation in saying that
before he entered this subject to monopo
lize and perpetuate and entail. For this he
used to be denounced as a demagogue. We
had had a monopoly in the South in slaves,
though he had held slaves and had never
sold one. From Magna Chart we had de
rived our ideas ef freedom of speech, liberty
01 tne press, and that private property
noma no. oe taken lor publie naes
without just compensation. He had
these notions of freedom. His mind was
thorofore, opposed to class legislation. Be
ing providentially brought to his present
condition, he intended to exert the power
and influence of the Government so as to
place in power the popular rsrty of this
nation. He proceeded on the principle
that the great masses are not the mash
rooms about a etuinp which wet weather

was sent on a great mission, to afford an
example of freedem and substantial happi.
neBB to all the powers of the earth. The
Constitution of the United States, in speak
ing of persons to be chosen as Representa
tives in Congress, says that the electors in
each State Bhall have the qualifications re
quisite for the electors of the most numor
ous branch of the Slate legislature. Here
we find a resting place. This was the point
at which the rebellion commenced. All
the States were in the Union, moving in
harmony, but a portion of them rebellod
and, to some extent, paralyzed the opera
tions of this Government. There is a Con
stitutional obligation resting on the United
States Government to pat down rebellion,
suppress insurrection and repel invasion
The slaves went into the war as slaves aad
came out froemon of color. The friction of
the rebellion has rubbed out the nature and
character of slavery. The loyal men who
were compelled to bow and submit to the
rebellion should, now that the rebellion is
ended, stand equal to loyal men every
where. Hence the wish for restoration and
this trying to get back the States to the
point at which they formerly moved in
perfect harmony. He did not intend lo
serve any particular clique or interest,
he would say to the delegation that
slavery is gone as an institution. There
was no hopes that the people of
South Carolina would be admitted to the
Senate or Honse of Representatives, until
they had affordod evidence by their con
duct of this truth. Tbe policy now is

While the war has emancipated slavery
it has also emancipated a largo number of
while men. He wodld talk plain, as tho
delegation had said they desired him to do.
He could go to gentlemen who had owned
fifty or one hundred slaves and who did
not care as mnch for the poor white man as
they did for the negro. Those who own
land have the capital to employ help,
and, therefore, some of our Northern
friends grieved, when they living afar off
think they can exercise a greater control
over the freedmon than Sonthern men who
have been reared where the institution of
Now, he did not want the late slaveholders
to control negro votes agaii-st white men.
Let each State judge of the depository of
its own political power. He was for eman
cipation. He was for emancipating the
white man as wjII as the black.
Mr. Holmes asked : Is not that already
The President replied that he did not
think the question fully settled. The ques
tion as to whether the black man shall be
engrafted in the Constitution will besettled
as we go along. Ho wonld not disguise
the fact that whilo he had been persecuted
and denounced at the South as a traitor, he
loved the great mass of the Southern peo
ple. He opposed the rebellion at its break
ing out, and fought it everywhere, and
now wanted the principles of the Govern
ment carried out and maintained.

want to got back to the same position as

Tbe President resuming said : As tbe
Executive he could only take the initiatory
steps to enable them to do the thing which
was incumbent upon them to perform.
Another of the delegates remarked: It
was assumed in some parts of this country
that in consequence of the rebellion, the
SouthernStates haveforfeiled thoir right s
members of the Confederacy and that if re
stored, it could only be on certain eondi-
inns, one of which was that ' slavery shall
abolished. This could be done only
through a Convention.
The President replied that the friction of
the rebellion had rubbed slavery out, but it
would be better so to declare by law, as one
of the delegates had just remarked,that
the Constitution of South Carolina did not
establish slavery, it we.e better to insert a
clause antagonistic to slavery.

circumstances. Certain delusions have
been lully disponed by the revolution

ment of political strength and moral
power. It is very certain that the old no

South Carolina erred, had eeaaed to exist.
Another delusion, vis : that Cotton is king,

came back with these notions dispelled,
and with a new system-of labor. The peo
ple of South Carolina will cordially co-op-

labor effective, and elevating tbe negro as
mach as they can. It is, however, more a
work of time than labor of enthusiasm or
fanaticism. The people of the South have

I repeat that the new system of labor is to
be iasngarated by sober, sound, and dis

Their' mind are much inflamed with lib

with license.. Their great idea is a fear
that freedom consists of exemption from

to have always been a good Union man and
