The Chicago Tiibune of the 9th says, Sher
-maa left Atlaota several days ago, with 75,000
men, and will sweep, with irresistible forc?,
-. into the heart, of Georgia and South Caroli
na to Mobile and Charleston. He will march
' in three*frand columns, well provided with
artillery abd cavalry destroying roads and
bridges in his rear, gathering supplies from
. the country, receiving fugitives who will flock
ttrhim by thousands.
It ia believed Sherman will arrive at his
. - objective point with reinforcements to- the
. extent of fifty thousand men.
A telegram from Nashville says Hood's ar
my is still encamped in the vicinity of Flor
ence. One cdfps is on the North side of the
. river. The condition of the roads prevents
active military operations. The robel anny
remains comparatively quiet.
" The Nashville Whig says Judge Wright, of
r .Georgia, recently member of the Richmond
Congress, has passed through Nashville to
Washington, to see'What can be done towards
bringing about peace.
Butler, in a speech in New York, on Mo'n
daj evening, said the Government might now
proffer the olive branch to "tho rebels, tender
ing an amnesty to them and their leaders un
tU the 8th of January. If they hald out, he
would favor au unsparing prosecution of tho
war. ? , - _ :,..;:>
McClellan's resignation has.bcen accepted
Sheridan has been appointed to the position
It is said-that Mr. Lincoln, taking a hint
from Mr.'Davis' message, is disposed, to make
the first steps, and waiving the point of eti
quette aside, to send commissioners to Rich
, mond in order to ascertain the- disposition of
Mr. Davis on 1 hat subject.
Tho Washington correspondent of the Phil
adelphia "Ledger says : ^
A "great pressure ?as already been brooght
upon the President to induce, himto appoint
commissioners to Richmond, for the purpose
of sounding the .authorities in that city, upon
thc subject of peace. The moment is regard
as probably the most fitting during tho:war.
The greatest confidence exists here among
the friends of the Administration that the
day of reconciliation with the South has ar
rived, that the Southern people desire it, and
that any advance on tbn part of the North in
that direction will be welcomed all over the
. Cenfederacy, and will tend powerfully to
bring both sections together,
The 'Washington correspondent of the New
.' York Times speaks tbtis of Sherman's march :
? . The news concerning Sherman^ programme
in Georgia, which, bas been telegraphed
to the country from a Western papar, will
startle the public. Some of the facts had*]
been known in this city. It is known that
. after Hood, had gotten" well into Arabama
some weeks since, and after General Shcr
. man had determined that it was not necessa
ry to use his entiro army for the pursuit of the
Confederates, fho latter, with three entire
corps, started back from Northern Georgia
- for Atlanta. His objective point was boldly
asserted to be Savannah, for which place, it
was given out, he wpnld Icavoon the 8th, the
day of the Presidential election, having first
destroyed Atlanta. It was though^he would
touch at Macon, and would reach Savannah
in a rrrorch of 25 -days. The route is 290
miles, with no rivers and few'ciceks of im
portance to pas?, and leading through the
most flourshing part of Georgia.
Milledgeville. the Capital of the State of
Georgia, coi?hl be reached in six days from
the date of starting.. Ile will have'rations
for thirty days, but is expected to find sup
plies and forage on bis route. His force for
this great'majch .will bo between forty -and
seventy thousand men, and he will have a
large amount of ordnance, a construction
corps and pontoon bridges. There will doubt
less be considerable destruction of property,
on the route, and ten thousandsvof the hud
dled slaves of Georgia will bo frcad and in
corporated into our army.
. Troops have gone north frocn Atlanta to
Tennessee, and it is supposed will destroy all
- bridges and important railroad routes. Rome
will-be evacuated and damaged. We will
hojd au out post in Georgia, south of Chat
tanooga, which will be necessary to .guard
Hood's army enti?& is nearly five hundred"
n?iles iu the rear of Sherman. The gallaut
Gen. Thomas,.with an army, will take care
of Hood, iu the absence of Sherman. He
will have abundant force for this purpose,
which will ba appropriately stationed in Ten
Gen. Thomas hf already prepared -to fight
Hood, who is somewhere in Northern. Alaba
ma, near the 1'IDO of the. Tennessee river-. If
Hood goes into Western Kentucky he falls")
into a trap.
Lookout <br glorious rraws from Sherman's
army within thirty days, for within that time
it will hove made a grand ?military march
from the mountains to the Atlautic seaboard.
This will be one of the most extraordinary
campaigns rf tho. war.. The rebels have noth
ing ia Georgia that can oppose .Sherman.
They made a tremendous mistake in sending
Hood to Tennessee. v ?
You will probably g'et your first news of
Sherman at Savannah or Charleston.
Thus speaks tho New York Herald, of the
capture of the Florida : "
M Taking the natter plainly as it isy Capt.
Collins has done his'country a good and man
ly service in the captur? of this privateer.
And if in the multitude of nice legal points
ia relation to neutrality, we shall be found.to
have violated.one, why, by and by, when the
war is over and the Florida is no longer of
any account,-we will in ake-aui table reparation
to Brazil."- . -'
A SCGGESTIOX.-The Charleston Mercury
says we learn on good authority that there
are upwards of tito thousand skulkers be
longing to the Confederate army-now'in South
Carolina. We would respectfully suggest to
Congress that they pass some wiso and ef
fective laws that would not only return- the
South Carolina skulkers to thc ranks, but
would also reduce the number of- the two j
third of the army absent?es" thc President
referred to in his farf&med aivd celebrated
speech at Macon. * . '
As mattera now stand, it looks as if the
more originals you put in, the grealrr the
number of absentees. Better return absen
tees first-thei. if more men are needed tljcy
can readily be had.
..Oun RKTUR.NCD POISONERS.-We notice
with gret pleasure the good behaviour of the
men. lt' might reasonably Lave been expec
ted that among such a great number of men,
just from their long confinement and cruel
treatment-once more with their feet upon
the soil of their beloved laud of li berty-some
would have brtaken over all restraints, but
it has tot been' the eas?.' All luve* been
properly and behaved with tho utmost de
corum. ' ? *
A most cheering thing clearly observable
in the countenances . of all, ? well as from
their conversation, is, that they are not whip^
'ped or disSeartened or despondent. They'
are cheerful and confident, as full of defuuee
to tho hateful Yankee invader as mortal? can'I

.The' Presidential, struggle/is over,
Abraham Lincoln is elected for another I
This result was so generally anticipated
it'will.create very little surprise. Som
the over credulous readers of the New "
World and the Albany Atlas-Argus ma
disappointed, but the knowing odes ai
tSe democracy knew all 'the time-that
boastings and foolish promises would
carry tue election.
We ueed not at present recite the ca
which have culminated in the defeat of <
McClolIan. It will suffice to say thal
has fallen a victim to the copperhead m
gers of the-Chicago Convention and tie. dc
eratic party. Turning from the past to
futures let us-oriefly consider the inst
(ions to tho administration involved in
election, and the general policy sugge
from: the people. They have emphatic
decreed that fhe rebellion shall be pot d
by force of arms ; that there can and s
be no compromise with Jeff. Davis, and i
the U ?ii on in its integrity shall bo maintaii
The question of the Presidential sue
sion being settled, all parties can now sh*
for a time to drop their party divisions
dissensions, in order, to assist the governri
in bringing .the rebellion toan end asspeei
as possible. Not only is the Presiden
bone of contention out of the wey, but
ruling elements of both houses of Congi
are fixed for at least the npxt two years,
this interval, therefore, republicans and di
ocra ts, suspending- their mischievous -wra
lings over national politics, may readily c<
bine insupportof the national causo
first branch of which is tile subjugation,. :
of the Southern people, but of the annie-'
Jeff Davis. This done, thc next dut}r
volvlugupon tho admiui tration wiil be i
restoration of the rebellious States um
their old allegiance to the Union. This T
be a delicate task, yet it need not. bo a di
cult one. Let Cougress supersede the <
isting vindictive confiscation acts, passed 1
der thc whip and spur of the abolition fan
ics, and the impracticable or ?seles cman
pation and reconstruction projects of-Pre
dent Lincoln, by a liberal act inviting the
bellious States back to the Union, and b
little more will remain to be done. Gi
the masses ol the Southern people to und<
stand that their rights of property will !
respected, and that they will only be i
quired to recognize tba supreme authori
o? the constitution of the United Stab
leaving the slavery question to the "sever
States concerned, and we dare ray that evi
South Cardlina will be fully represent
at Washington within a year from the ca
turo of Richmond. *
We need not trouble ourselves any furth
concerning this stumbling block of Southe:
slaver/. Thc proposition which has be<
broached at Richmond to arm and drill
-he service of Jeff. Davis, fur the spring cai
paigu, three hundred thousand slaves, wi
bc very apt to finish the" " institution" ai:
the "confederacy" before the spring can
paign. is opened. The discussion bctwet
the tubel politicians, who have noslavee. an
the startled and indignant slaveholders hr
already commenced, and promises a spli
that will soon complete tho dcraoralizatio
against thc Davis dcapetiain which has fe
soruo lime boen at work aniong-thc Souther
people?, from Virginia to T(w??. In an
event, slavery has been so badly crippled an
demoralized by the heavy blbws of this tei
rible war l5at, with the war endt-d, the- " ii
stitution" may be left to die wit hont furthe
torture. . - . .
- UNITE JUE NORTH.-Now 'that the grca
election is over, -wu must all go to wor? t
unite the North and put down the rebcllior
Sines fte rebid' leaders have turned aboli
tionists, there need bo no mere discussici
about slavery hore. As.the voice of the\r.?c?
pie is undoubtedly for war, iu this election
theje is no use for any more copperhead peae
clamor. . Let us put down the fanatics' of al
parties, and*heartily unite for the Union. J
united North is invincible.
* DirtDE TUE SOUTH.-The indications an
that thc South will soon be divided upon tin
question of freeing and'arming slaves^ Tbi
rabot-Congress, now in 8e?sio:i, will sturt tin
commotion. The slaveholders will probably
go against thc plan, and the politicians w.il
bo in favor, of it. Now let ni unite the Nortl
in order to take advantage of this state o
affairs, and we shall soon whip the dividec
South and restore the Union.
In a? edilaerlal reviewing-President Davis
message, when alluding to*Sherman's army
the Herald says:
Grant has placed Sherman's advance in nc
cordanco with inforfcation furnished by Jell
Davis. Daaia iu his speeches arid his mes
sage, has furnished all the necessary facts tc
show that Sherman's inarch cannot he resist
ed. He has told us how the rebel armies are
depleted'and where they are. So onward
goes Shecman towards Macon, Augusta and
SayannaiT. He will be heard of next tHrough
the rebel papers. Ile will test somewhat
Davis' hifalutin statement that cone of the
rebel cities are necessary ^o the vitality of
the government, and he wili prove to the com

not-been compelled to ~" v;lthdraw," and that
he has not loft Atlanta exactly" on the fine
