THE PEACE MOVEMENT.
1 The reader is referred to the fourth page of
this paper for the rebel version of the peace con
ference, and to another column on this page for
President Lincoln's version of it. It will be
seen (hat the rebel Commissioners refused to
make any efforts towards peace without first
being virtually recognized as an independent
nation. This the President refused to do, and
thus terminated the conference. That the ac
tion of the President will receive the sanction
of hi countrymen, we have no doubt.
EXCHANGE OF PRISONERS.
Gen. Grant has effected an arrangement with
the rebels for t he exchange of prisoners, man
for man, and officer for officer, or hisequivalent,
until the ouc or the othc-r party exhaust the
uuml)er they now hold. The exchange has al
ready commenced, and it is expected that with
in three months at farthest, all our prisoners in
rebel bands will be within our lines. The Dan
ville aud Salisbury prisoners will bo the first to

SANDUSKY TOWNSHIP—THE DRAFT.
" We hardly know where we stand, or what
our prospects are in regard to getting clear.
Efforts have been made to raise a sum of money
sufficient to buy the men. It was thought they
could be procured at $400 each, and we have
pnt in 13 men at that price; 56 is our quota.
At this writing, Wednesday morning, there sre
43 men lacking in our number. The township
has about money enough to y $400 each for
the balance, but the price of men seems to be
$500, and there's the rub. To-day is the 15th
nd the draft may come. What will be the re
sult is more than we can tell.
At a meeting Wednesday evenings the pi ice
nf men being $500, it was voted the Committee
buy men at the lowest possible rate, not to ex
ceed $500. Considerable more money was sub
scribed, aud a committee appointed to solicit
further subscriptions. Let every one contribute
freely and often," and . . Township will come
out all right.
SANDUSKY TOWNSHIP—THE DRAFT. Death of Robert Sterling.
A lftter from J. M. Colburn, dated Washing
Urn, Feb. 7, 1865, to the Cleveland Leader,
Oaten that Robert Sterling died near the city of
Mobile, Alabama, in the month of September
last, of fever. He was Lieut. CoL of the 1st
Tennessee Regiment, (rebel,) which surrender
ed to our forces with Fort Morgan, August 25th.
Many of our citizens will remember Mr. Ster
ling as having resided here a short time during
the construction of the Cleveland & Toledo
Railroad, of which he was one of the Engineers.
He shortly after went South, turned up a rebel,
and has gone to meet a traitor's accouuL

A Veteran of 1812 Dead.
Captain Stanton Sholes. probably the last sur
vivor of the battle of Lake Erie, in 1813, died
in Columbus, on Wednesday last. He was an
officer under Perry.
AMENDMENT TO THE FISH LAW.
A bill has been presented in the Ohio Legis
lature to amend the fish law, aud which our
Representative," Hon. O. Mclutyre, is endeav
oring to have amended to read as follows:
' 'That it shall be unlawful to shoot or attempt
to shoot, or to catch, or attempt to catch fish, by
means of any diag-uet, gill net, drift net, seine,
hsh-babkt't, tish-i-ot, set-net, or weir-pound, or
by poisoning the waters with lime, ashes, or any
deleterious substance whatever, in anv of the
rivers, creeks or streams or their tributaries,
within this State, which terminate in the navi
nble waters of lake Erie or Ohio river, at any
point or place therein, on a common level with
or back waters of said lake Erie and the Ohio
river, or in any of the reservoirs of this State, or
by obstructing by wiers or other contrivances
intended to stop the passage of fish up or down
auy of said rivers, creeks, streams or reservois,
under a penalty of five hundred dollars; and it
shall be further unlawful to catch or at
tempt to catch, any fish by the use of any net
or seine exceeding sixty rods in length, basket
pit or pound, hereinbefore mentioned, in that
part of said rivers, creeks orstrenms, which are
on a ommon level with, or the back waters of
of lake Erie, at any time between the twentieth
day of June and the first day of September."
We do not know that we clearly comprehend
the above. What the people of this section de
sire, is that tbe run of fish from the Lake up
the Sandusky river, shall not be obstructed by
pounds, nets or seines, reaching across the bay
or river during any part of the year, aud that
no fish shall be taken from the bay or river be
tween the 20th of June and the first day of
September, except what is taken out with the
"OIL ON THE BRAIN."
We understand that West fc Dana have com
menced boring for oil at their saw mill on Green
Creek. We also learn that "indications" of oil
appear on the land of Mr. riatt Brush, of Ball
nlle, and that he intends sinking a well in the
Spring. Well.onething is certain, it w ill nev
er be known whether there is oil in Sandusky
county or not, if some on- -"oes not try to find
out, and we are glad V ! that there is en
terprise enough in the vuuiity to make the experiment.

WASHINGTON, Feb. 10.
To the Hon Honw of K'cptesentatives:
In rHMi. io vour solution ol the 8ih iost.

"Allow the beiiier, p. p. Blair, Sr., to pass
our lines to go tvutli ami return.
That at the tune ) was informed that Blair
sought the card as a means of getting to Rich
mond, Va., but" he was given no authority to
speak or act for 1 rw Government, nor was 1 in
formed of any thing lie would say or do on his
own account or otherwise. Mr. Blair told me
that he had been to Richmond and had seen Da
vis, and he, (Blair) at the same time left with me
a manuscript letter as follows, to wit:
Richmond, Va. Jan. 1:2, 18G5.
t P.' Blair,' Esq. 8m I" have deemed it
proper and probably desirable to you, to give
you in this form, the substance of the remarks
made by me to be repeated by you to Presi
dent Lincoln. I have no disposition to find ob
stacles in forms, and am as willing now as here
tofore, to enter into negotations for the restora
tion of peace. 1 am ready to send a Commis
sioner whenever I have reason to suppose he
will be received, or to receive a Commissioner
whenever the United States Government shall
choose to send one.
Notwithstanding the rejection of our former
offers, I would, if you could promise that a Com
missioner, minister, or other agent would be re
ceived, appoint one immediately, and renew the
effort to enter into a conference with a view to
secure to the two countries.
Afterwards, with the view that it should be
shown to Davis, I wrote and delivered to Blair
a letter as follows:
Wahhingtox, Jan. 18, 1865,
F. P. Blair, Esq. Sir; You having shown
me Mr. Davis letter to yon on the lath inst,,
you may say to him that 1 have constantly been,
and am now and shall continue ready to receive
any agent whom be or any other influential per-
sou now resisting the .National authority may

Afterwards Mr. Blair dictated for and author
ized me to make an entry on the back of the re
tained coppy of the letter last above recited,
which is as follows:
Jan-laky 28, 1865. To-day Mr. Blair tells
me that on the 21st inst., he delivered to Mr.
Davis the original, of which the within is a copy,
and left it with him; that at the time ol deliver
ing Mr. Davis read it over twice in Mr. Blair's
presence, at the close of which he (Blair) re
marked that the part above our commou coun
try related to the part of Mr. Davis' letter about
the two countries, to which Davis replied that
be so understood iu
Supposing the proper Kint to be then reach
ed, I dispatched the Secretary of Stale with the
following instructions, going ahead of him:
Exkcitivk Mansion, Washington, .
January 31, 1865. S ,
Hon. W. H. Seward : You will proceed to For
tress Monroe, there to meet and informally cou
fer with Messrs. Stephens, Hunter and Camp
bell on the basis of my letter toF. P. Blair, Ksq.,
of January 18, 1865, a copy of which you have.
You will make known to them that three things
arc indispensable, to-wit: 1st- The restoration
of the iiHliiui.il authority throughout all the
States; 2d. No receding by the Executive of
the United States, on the slavery question, from
the position assumed thereon iu the late annual
message to Congress, and in the preceding doc
uments. And 3d. No cessation of hostilities
short of au eud of the war. aud the disbanding
of all the forces hostile to the (Government. You
will inform them that all proHisitions of theirs
not inconsistent with the alm, will be consid
ered and passed upon in a spirit of sincere liber
ality. You will hear all they may choose to say
and report it to me. You will not assume to
definitely consumate anything.

On the morning of the 3d, the three gentle

board of our steamer and had an interview with
the Secretary of State and myself, of several
hours duration. N o other jierson was present.
No paiers were exchanged or produced, and it
was in advance agree that the Convention was
to be informal aud verbal merely.
On our part the whole substance of the in
structions to the Secretary of Stale, herein be
fore recited, was stated aud insisted upon aud
nothing wassaid inconsistent therewith. While
by lhe other party it was not said that in any
event or on auy conditions that they ever would
consent to reunion, and yet they equally umit
tedto declare that they would not so consent.
They seemed to desire a postponement of that
question, and the adoption of some other course
first, which, some of them seemed to argue,
might and might not lead to reunion, but which
course we thought would amount to an indefinite
postponement. The conference ended without
result. -' The foregoing, containing as is believ

Thk History of Dr. Scuenvk's own Cas.
AN1 HOW UK WAS CUBED O CoXSL'Mt'TIOS.
Many years ago, whilst residing iu Philidel
phia, 1 had progressed gradually into the last
stage of Pulmonary Consumption. All hos
of my recovery being dissipated, I was advised
by iny physician, Dr. Parrish, to remove into
the country. MoorestowD, New Jersey, being
ray native place, I was removed theither. Jly
lather and all his family had lived ami died
there and died of Pulmonary Consumption.
On my arrival I was put to bed, where 1 lay
for many weeks in what was deemed a hopeless
condition. Dr. Thornton, who had beeu my
father's family physician, and had attended him
in his last illness, was called to see nie. He
thought iny case entirely beyond the reach of
medicine, and decided that 1 must die, and
gave me one "week to arrange my tcinHral
aifairs. In this appearantly hopeless condition,
I heard of the remedies which 1 now make aud
sell. It seemed to me that 1 could feel them
working their way, and penetrating every nerve,
nbre, and tissue of my system.
My lungs and liver put on a new action, aud
the morbid matter which for years had accum
ulated and irritated the different organs of the
body, was eliminated, the tubercles of iny lungs
ripened, and I expectorated from my lungs as
mucn as a piut, ui jrciiuw uueuuve matter every
morning. As this expectoration of matter sub
sided, the fever abated, the pain left me, the
cough ceased to harrass me, and the exhausting
night-sweets were no longer known, and 1 had
refreshing sleep, to which I had long been a
stranger. My appetite now began to return,
aud at times I found it difficult to restrain my
self from eating too much; with this return of
health, 1 gained in strength, and now am fleshy.
I am now a healthy man, with a large healed
cicatrix in the middle lobe of the right lung aud
the lower lobe hepatizea witn complete adhe
sion of the pleura. The left lung is sound, and
the upper lobe of the right one is in a tolerably
Consumption at that time was thought to be
au incurable disease, by every one, physicians
as well as those who were unlearned in medi
cine especially such cases as were reduced to
the condition I was in. This induced many
Deoule to believe my recovery only temnorarv.
i now prepared and gave the medicine to con
sumptives lor some time, and made many won
derful cures; and the demands increased so rap
idly that I determined to offer them to the pub
lic, and devote my undivided attention to luug
diseases. In truth I was next to forced to it,
for people wound send for me far and near, to
ascertain whether their cases were like mine.
For many years, in conjunction with my
principal office in Philadelphia, I have been
making regular professional visits to 2 ew York,
Boston, Baltimore, and Pittsburg.
For several years past 1 have made as many
as five hundred examinations weekly with the
"liespirometer." For such examination my
charge is three dollars, and it enables me to give
each patient the true condition of his disease,
and tell him frankly whether he will get well.
The great reason why physicians do not cure
Consumption is, that they try lo do too much;
they give medicines to stop the cough, to stop
the night-sweats, hectic fever, and by so doiug
they derange the whole digestive system, lock
ing up the secretions, and eventually the patient
The Pulmonic Syrup is one of the most val
uable medicines known. It is nutrient, power
fully tonic, and healing in itself. It contains
no opiu-u, yet loosens the phlegm iu the bronch
ial lubes, and nature throws it off with little ex
ertion. One bottle frequently cures an ordin
ary cold; but it will be well first to take a dose
of Scheuck's Mandrake's Pills to cleanse the
stomach. The Pulmonic Syrup is readily di
gested and absorbed into blood, to which it im-
Carls its healing properties, it is one ol the
est preparations of iron in use; it is a powerful
tonic of itself; and when the Seaweed Tonic
djssolves the mucus in the stomach, and is car
ried off by the aid of the Mandrake Pills, a
healthy flow of gastric juice, good appetite and
good digestion follow.
The Seaweed Tonic is a stimulant, and none
other is required when it is used. It is pure
and pleasant; no bad effects like when using
Hoiirbon wlnsky, wliicli disorders tue stomach.
torpersthe liver, locks up all the secretions,
turns the blood into water, dropsy sets iu, and
the patient dies suddenly.
liourlKin whiskey is recommended now-a-
days by almost every physician. Many patients
that visit my rooms, both male and female, are
slupeiied with this poison. The relief is tcm-
orary. it iney cougn iney take a little wlus
y; if they feel weak aud feeble they take a
little whisky; if they cannot sleep they take a
little whisky; and they go on in this way, re
quiring more and more until they are bloated
up, and imagine they are getting fleshy. The
stomach, liver, and digestive powers are com
pletely destroyed, and lose their appetite for
food. No one was ever cured of consumption
by this process, where cavities have been form
in the lungs. A little stimulant is frequent- i
beneficial to consumptives, such as vino .
brandy or good wines; in many cases London!
Mrter or brown stout in moderate qualities; but I

The Seaweed Tonic produces lasting results, 1
thoroughly invigorating the stomach aud di- i
gestive system, and enabling it to eliminate and
make into healthy blood the food which may be
used tor tuat purpose. It is so wonderful in
effects that a wineglass full will digest a
hearty meal, and a little of it taken before
breakfast will give a tone to the stomach which
few medicines possess the power of doing.
The MANDRAKE PILLS may be taken
with entire safety by all ages and conditions,
producing all the good results that can be ob
tained from calomel, or any of the mercurial
medicines, and without any of their hurtful or
injurious results. They carry out of the sys
tem the feculent and worn-out matters loosened
and dissolved by my Seaweed Tonic and Pul
monic Syrup. It will be. seeu that all three of
medicines are needed in most cases to cure
