President Liricoln willing laat Jeff.
Davis should jUscapa.
A c orre-po ade: it of the Cincinnati
Gfaselte, who i? writlugnp some ol' lite
reminiscences ol' Sherman's campaign
In North Carolina, is responsible fur
Gen. Sherman complained, an:,
doubtless, with some troth, if not jus?
tice, that th? Government had never
distinctly explained to him what policy
it desired to have pursued. 'I asked
Mr. Lincoln explicitly, when I went ta
City Point, whether ho wanted mc to
capture Jeff. I'avis or let him escape,
anti in reply he told me a ?tory.'
That 'story m.ir now have?a histo?
rical value, and L give it, therefore, as
Gen. Sherman said Mr. Lincoln told
it.-only premising that i;. was a fa?
vorite story with Mr. Lincoln, which
lie told man v tim.."-, and ia illustration
of many points of public policy: .]" i
tell von, General,' Mr. Lincoln was
saiii to hav? begnn, 'Fi! tell you what

in Sangtioion Comity there was an old
temperance lecturer, who .was very
strict ir, the doctrine and practice ot
total abstinence. Gue day, after a
long rido in the hot sun, he slopped at
tin* iiottsc. t.f a friend, who proposed
makiiig him a len?.una ie. r\s the
mild beverage *vas being mixed, thc
friend insinuatingly asked ii' he
would n't like the least drop of some?
thing stronger, to brace up Ir.s nerves
after Hie- e&ha?sting heat and exercise.
.N.>.' replied the lecturer, "I eoaidh'l
think of it: I'm opposed to it oh prin
cipl?; but.' he added, with a longing
irlance at the black* Wolf ie that stout
conveniently at hand, 'ii yoi: coull
manage to put it: a drop uni/ knowns
to me, I guess it wouldn't hurt ?m.
..Now, Genova]/ Mr. Lincoln is <n:<
to have concluded, 'I'm boute! t
oppose the escape of Jetf. Davis; 1":
ii . -.?-I could manage to let him sin
riot, unbeknownst like, i guess i
wouldn't hurt ino much!'
'And timi.' .exclaimvi Gen. Sher
man, -'is all I could g?t cut ol :!.e t ! ?
v'erntneut .ts. to what : s policy, wa:
?oonceruing the rebel leaders lill'Stan
tou assailed me for Davis' escape.'
Chere was itn'imm*nse meet inj* o
cit'.z -ns at St. Lon's on the L7.th mst,
to remonstrate against, the conduct, o
(.luv. Fletcher in removing th-?.'.Jed
of 11 ?o Supreme Court by militar
force. The result of their dc.il- :ru
lions, ii) part, was 'that thc most da:
g??ous and thc guiltiest of criminal
v.-.-.s thc tr?an who, intrusted wit
power, abused that pow r 'forptirposi
of lawlessness and tvraunv.' Thu
man they. Kaid was Thomas. C. b'letcl
cr, who had abusetl the power place
in his hands t?y ordering :i mili'ar
officer 'to remove, by force, J?ulg*
Dryden and Bay from their seal
upon the Supreme Bench. And ttie
solemnly declared that 'this oulr?g
upon the majesty of the law is not t
be pardoned' until those lawless]
placed it? power "shall be, by lawft
means, ejected irom their places; ar
they pledged themselves not to re
nor slumber until, 'with all the cer
monials of criminal justice, ?entern
is passed upon these arch offenders.'

Latest Opiuion. of tho London. Times. |
We are an outspoken people, and
make no secret, of our conclusions, but
there is nothing in those conclusions
to which any citizen of the Union
need object. We have been surpiiscd
at tho abrupt extinction of the war;
i bnf, "not more PO than tho Americans
j themselves. Whatever may have been
j our speculations < r,, sympathies, we
i rejoice that the work of carnage is at
I an end. We coidially reciprocate th.'
I expressions of amity which reach us
i fron: America, and shall mit be dis
I believed in our professions cf desire
i for permanent peaee. For lin: rest,
! weean mlv wait. We causee nothing
! nf tho future, nor will we pretend to
j believe that tho revolution is over. On
I th.e contrary, wu se.e that it is but half
[ finished, and that America will cer
j taiuly never again bo tin Ameri ;a
: ol' the past. Ibu it may well bes?me.*
I thing better. The blot of slavery, at
j any rate, is effaced horn its seil and
; <>ne subjecu of contention i< removed.
The position, too, of each Stale o! thc
' Union in relation to the whole is now
detln*<1 and established, if u?t i m Drov?
ed. Then the people have 1-nr ed
! truths '.-.nd' unlearned fallacies, besides
? uuderoomjCjtjtar. intrudive experience
which w:ir>eldom fails to yield. We
expect, indeed, that the Americans of
ti:..- Suture will be ni re ?ike oil er'peo
\\ e will not ?tiempt to flatter them.
They know w? H enough what we
thought of their civil uar, and thev
will be prompt t.> cortipn bend inn'.'""ir
judgment remains in suspense sliil.
In a lew words- thev have, won - won
against lite expo-tali'ci of tito whola

remains yet to be s*en. Tb1? result JJ
probably within their own Control.
Upon their policv it will depend
j whether the Smith h??oo.rnes again
amalgamated wita the North, or sur
v:v v.-, (inly as a blemish and a burden to
the Jtfptiblio. Tiie work of reconstruc?
tion m:>y be more trying than the work
of subjugation. The present policy ot
tin: victorious administration it is
easier to comprehend limn to approve.
\\ e cati well understand that Ameri?
cans, after learning to their own cost
what insurrection moan -, are begin?
ning to entertain a new idea ol' its
character; nor are we surprised at the
denunciations now launched against
tee ciim . < f treason; but the Govern
nient of \V"ashing!on should remembei
ti.at between acts of r eason and civil
war there is a recognised dis'inc:ion,
aird .that if the discrimination be logi
cally somewhat .?jif?cult, it les ia ih\<
instance been made practically easy
web that this contest between them
and their icllow-citizens of the .South
has, indeed, been a civil war, and
nothing loss. We need not. appeal tr
the givrant ic proportions of the con
flict, tor the actual conduct of tlu
st rife on both sides furnishes evidencf
in abundance. Tho belligerents die
observe the lulesof war, the captive:
wore considered prisoners ot war, arte
treated as snell, [fin the boat of tin
contest any act contrary to the laws o
u ar was committed, it was palli?t
ed <>r explained. In fact, at the Ven
moment that the Federal^Govemmeu

trial, otie ot its own generals, the ver-.
soldi'-r who" captured Kichmond, i
proel ai lifting to the world that tin

armies of the United States, in di
lance, duration, resolution, brilliance

I past military achievements.1 We wi!
I not stop lo measure the truth of thi
panegyric, but the very pretension i
j enough tu show that the contesl wbic
I can be so described was a mighty wa
. and not a mean r. hellion, and that th
j leaders of the South are not capture
traitors, but conquered enemies.
