so high, and ho will generally give, a
eweepiDg answer that it is "Lincoln's war."
Ask a loyal man the same question, and
ho will tell you it is the gold gamblers
and speculators. Men very often answer
financial questions without going through
the formula ot tracing causes to effect;.
In common parlance, they jump at conclu
sions, which are apt to be erroneous aa

understood the gold

York arc a pack of despicablo traitors,
who since the commencement of the war
have had hut two objects iu view, namely,
to embarrass the Government in every
possible manner, and io fill their own
pockets. Eut their power for evil is a
limited one Let us inquire what hr,3
enabled Wall Street to run up the rates
cf gold, as they have done, and thus com
pel twenty millions of people to pay trib
ute in the shapo of exorbitant prico3 for
everything they use. The answer is at
hand the hijh rates of eichanjc. Had
there been uo foreign demand fur gold,
it would nev"erhavc reached a figure high
er than twentj-five per cent, of an advance.
What has made exchange with other na
tions high ? Not simply the fact that our
foreign debts have to be paid in gold and
silver. This would not trouble U3 at all,
if the balance of trade were not against
us; and here has been the whole trouble,
and the cause of all our financial distress.
Ye have imported more than, ice have ex
ported, and the demand for gold to pay the
balanca against us has enabled the New
York gamblers to do what they have done.
Our fathers and mothers in the times of
the .Revolution, becauso the British im
posed a tax, on tea, went icithout it for
years. The same patriotic sentiments
brought into practical use now, would save
us hundreds of millions of dollars. "With
out practising an iota of self-denial, the
great bulk of what we pay to other nations
in gold might be kept at home. If our
people had the patriotism to dispense with
luxuries ia dress and living during the
war, our exportations iu products would
pay our foreign debt, and gold range not
above 1-5. Instead of this, however,
American men and women have gone and
are- going headlong into extravagance,
without a particle of regard to economy
or prudence. The world never saw such
financial recklessness as i3 exhibited by
this nation at the present time. Men arc
abandoning in disgust their former com
fortable homes, and arc building marble
palaces, costing millions of dollars, upon
which are lavished other millions of dol
lars in the shapo of imported furnishings
to correspond. In articles of dross, every
thing is upon the same scale. American
goods are passed by with a contemptuous
sneer, and the most costly foreign fabrics'
brought into requisition. Women sweep
tho street with dresses costing thousands,
with other thousands added in the way of
Since the commencement of the war,
men have made fortunes at a single turn
of the wheel ; but instead of saviug tbese,
they seem determined to rashly throw them
away. It seems to be the prevailing rule
that where men make money fast, they
f l end it faster. There exists a widespread
mania for fobbing greenbacks, but this
noes not nearly cqal the mania for get
ting rid of them when once accumulated.
The result of this state of ;i;ini:s through
out the country has been the consumption
cf a large amount cf imported goods,
which, has drained- the country of gold,
xr.ado the article scarce and high-priced,
and enabled speculators to carry every
thing" before them. Iu this way, the
many have been virtually robbed of rail
lion?, to the enriching of the few.
The question is asked, When will goods
full? We venture the prediction, not so
lonjr. as speculators, aided and assisted by
a foolish and extravagant public, can pre
vent. The only remedy is to retrench.
15a Icfs extravagant-
in your old house until building matciials
come down to reasonable prices. Do
without luxuries. Wear hist vcar's coat
and hat another season. Economise, both
in dress and living, and patronize only
home manufactures. A general move
ment in this direction would do more to
ward leducirg prices to the old standard
than all the legislation in the world.
5omctIi!zi OCIciaZ About the
The President has sent into Congress a
full and detailed narrative of the late
Peace Conference, covering all the corre
spondence on either side with regard to
the subject. The document .is too long
for our columns, so wo are obliged to
forego the pleasure of printing it this
Wc learn from this narrative that the
Peace negotiations were the result of Mr.
Blair's mission to Richmond. That gen
tleman was given no authority to speak
to tho rebel leaders on behalf of the Gov
ernment, further than to say that Peace
Commissioners would bo sent or received
whenever it was known the rebels desired
to end the war by a reconstruction of the.
Union. It wa3 iu pursuance of a general
understanding to this effect that Jefferson
Davis despatched Messrs. Stevens, Hun
ter and Campbell tu confer with our au
thorities, These Commissioners arrived
in front of our Hues ou the 0th ult.,
where considerable correspondence took .
place before it was decided to admit them.
Indeed, the President at one time had
concluded to send them back, thinking
they did not desire peace on any available
terms. Rut at this juncture, Gen. Grant
telegraphed that, after a long conversation
with the Commissioners, he wa3 satisfied
they wcro honest iu their professions, and
desired Peace on the basis of the Union.
Thiii changed the purpose of the Prcsi
ident, and he decided to meet them. The
conference took place at Hampton Roads
on the Cd, and, as is well known, was a
failure. The following is the President's
version of the result of the meeting :
"Ou tho morning of February 3, the
three gentlemen, Messrs. Stepheus, Ilun
tcr, and Campbell, camo aboard of our
steamer, and had an interview with the
Secretary ot State and myself, of several
hours duration. No question of prelim
inaries to the meeting was then and there
made or mentioned. No other person was
present. No papers were exchanged or
produced; and it was in advance agreed
that the conversation was to be informal
and verbal merely. On our part the whole
substance of the instructions to the Secre
tary cf State, hereinbefore recited,
was stated and insisted upon, and nothing
was raid inconsistent therewith; while by
the other party it was not said that in any
event, or on any condition, they ever
would consent to reunion, and yet they
equally omitted to declare that they would
not consent. They seemed to desire a
postponement of that question and the
adoptiou of some other course first, which,
as souiC of them seemed to argue, might
or might cot lead to reunion, but which
course wc thought would amount to an
indefinite postponement. The conference
ended without result."
The ''instructions to the Secretary of
State" adverted to were as follows :
Hon. H'm. II. Seicard, Secretary of Slate:
You will proceed to Port Monroe, Va.,
there to meet and informally confer with
Messrs. 'Stephens, Hunter, and Campbell
on th basis of my letter to P. P. Rlair,
Esq., of JauuarjT 18. 18G5, a copy of which
you have. You will mal:e known to them
that three things are indispensau'e, to wit :
First. The restoration of the Datical
authority throughout all the State3.
Second. No receding by the Executive
of the United States on the slavery ques
tion from the position assumed thereon in
the Jato annual message to Congress and in
Third. No cessation of hostilities short
of an end of tho war and the disbanding
ot all the forces hostile to the Government.
You will inform that all propositions of
theirs not inconsistent with the above will
be considered and passed upon in a spirit
of sincere liberality. You will hear all
they may choose to say, and report it to
me. You will not assume to definitely
consummate anything. Yours, &c,

To the President of the Confederate States:
Sxil : Under your letter of appoint

ham Lincoln, President of the United
States, upon the subject mentioned in your
The conference wa3 granted, and took

anchored iu Hampton Roads, "where wa

II. S&ward, Secretary of State cf the Uni

It continued for several hours, and was
both full and explicit. We learned from
them that the message of President Lin
coln to tho United States Congress, iu
December last, .explains clearly and dis
tinctly his sentiments as to the terms, con
ditions, and method of proceeding hy which
peace can be secured to the people, and
we were not informed that they would be
modified or altered to obtain that end.
We understand from him that no terms
cr proposals 0 any treaty or agreement,
looking to an ultimate settlement, would
t)o entertained or made by him with the
authorities of tho Confederate States,
because that would be a recognition of
their existence as a separate power, which,
under no circumstaucc?, would bo done,
and, for like reasons, that no such terms
would be entertained by him from States
separately ; that no extended truce or
armistice, as at present advocated, would
be granted or. allowed without satisfactory
assurance iu advance of the complete res
toration of the Constitution and laws of
tho United States over all places within

TcEACHEitous Conduct or a Rebel
Genekal. A Nashville correspondent cf
thcCiccinnati Gazette tcl's the following
story cf the murder of Sergeant Arthur
Lyon of the 15th Pennsylvania cavalry by
the notorious rebel General of the same
name, on the 15th ult, in Marshal county,
Tennessee, just south of the river:
'The rebel trcops under Gen. Lyon
having, on the 15th of January, reached
what they supposed to be safe ground after
their long and profitless raid through
Kentucky, w.nt to rest with a great feel
ing of security after reaching the south
bank of the Tennessee river. The detach
ment of the 15th Pennsylvania cavalry
having watched their movements, sur
prised their camp before day on the mor
ning of the 15th, with the best results.
A perfect panic was produced, and near
one hundred and fifty prisoners taken.
Sergeant Lyon, always foremost on such
occasions, fouud the quarters of the rebel
General, aud entering fearlessly, captured
the prize before he had risen from his bed.
The General surrendered himself to his
namesake, delivered up the arms which
he said were all he had, and then asked
permission to dress himself. This the
Sergeant granted as an indulgence due
one of his rank, who had, with apparent
honor, surrendered his arms ; hut beiur
dressed, ho took advantage of the indul
gence, and with a revolver he had kept
concealed under his pillow, killed the
gallant Sergeant and made his escape
through a back window.
"Thus a "high toned" gentleman of the
Southern chivalry a general in rank
added murder to the ignominy of his das
tardly perfidy and infamous cowardice.
There i3 no justification for his treachery.
An Indian would scorn such an act, for a
savage knows enough of honorable war
fare to know that the coward only, and
the black-hearted coward alone, will take
advantage of his captor by treachery and

Tragedy In Washington City
Jealousy aad Revenge.
Another of those dreadful tragedies for
which Washington city is rapidly becom
ing famous, occurred there a few days
hiiice. A young lady named Mary Har
ris, of Rurliugton, : Iowa, very preposses
sing in appearance and la'dylikcin manner,
shot dead a clerk in tho Treasury Depart
ment, named' Burroughs. The deed was
done ia broad daylight, in one of the main
halls of the Treasury building. - Miss'
Harris used a four-barreled revolver, aud
fired two shots at her victim, both cf
which took effect. ' The cause of the deed
is eushrouded in mystery, save what littla
light i3 thrown upon it by Miss Harris.
She states that there never has existed
any improper intimacy between herself
and Burroughs. This she reiterates on
all occasions siuco the homicide. She
says that when yet a child, Burroughs
was a visitor at her father's, acd that she
used to sit on his lap in presence .of her
parents, and that he had always -taken
great iuterest iu her. As" she grew up, his
attentions became nioro those of a suitor,
which her parents opposed, because he was
rich, she poor, he a Protestant and she
a Catholic. She says he frequently asked
her to marry him, which she refused on
account of her age and the wish of her
parents. Still he always protested his
ardent affection and determination to make
her his wife.
They corresponded together after Bur
roughs hud left Burlington aud gone to
Chicago. Some two years ago, at the re
quest of a Miss Devlin, a f riend of Mr.
Burroughs, she went to Chicago, where
she saw Mr. Burroughs. After that, there
rises a heap of mystery about anonymous
notes, which she believed were written by
Mr. Burroughs with the design of entic
ing her into a notorious house in Chicago.
On account of these uote3 she says she
felt . the most intense anxiety to be fully
satisfied, as to whether he whom she had
so leved and who had so protested his love
for her could be guilty cf such baseuess.
Then she determined to prosecute him for
breach of premise, and shortly after, some
years ago, she learned that he was married
to a young lady and had gone to Wash
ington to live. Iu the mean while she
was disowned by her parents, and her old
friends and acquaintances would have
nothing to do with her, because she was
suspected to have had improper relations
with Burroughs, which was never so. So,
bent on vindicating her character, the re
solved to come on to Washington and bring
suit against Burroughs. In Chicago she
bought the revolver. After her avrival
here, she became frantic to see him, and
disguising herself in a "Nubia" and veil,
went to the Treasury. The rest is given
in her own language :
: "When I went into the Treasury build
ing I inquired for the room in which Mr.
Burroughs was, and having learned that,
walked up and down the hall for some
time. Ouce I went to the door of the
room, opened it a few inches, and saw him
at his desk. The moment I looked at
him, sitting there so comfortably, the
thought cf all I had suffered, and of his
being the cause, enraged me, and my hand
involuntarily pulled back the trigger of
the pistol in my pocket. I closed the door,
and, stepping away, moved about agaiu, I
knort' not how or Avhere, except that I
kept my eye on his room until the men
began to come out of their rooms. Then
I placed myself where I knew he would
have to come rear me in going to the
staircase. AY hen he appeared, I felt sud
denly lifted up ; my arm was extended as
stiff as iron, and I saw him fall. I knew
nothing more ui;til I was called back as I
wis leaving tho buiidiog."
E3, Governor Curtin has tent a special
message to the Legislature, ia which he
Arrangements having been perfected
by the National authorities, under which
supplies for our volunteers, now prisoners
in tho South, can bo forwarded to them, 1
think it right to annouuee the fact to our
people through you, and that the State
authorities can and will, under existing
laws, defray the expense of transportation
of all supplies which they may send to
this place, and forward the same to the
places designated as far as it i3 practicable.
The prisoners, it is well known, are in
want of food, clothing, and ia fact all the
necessaries of life."
-This is a rare opportunity, and the
friends of the suffering prisoners will be
suro to avail themselves of it. All that is
necpssary, in selecting supplies, is to select
such articles a3 will be most useful to the
prisoner?, and such as can be put in the
most compact shape of forwarding..
&The St. Louis Republican says Brig.
Gen. Rhoddy, who has earned a high rep
utation during the war as a partisan cav
alry commander, and who has co-operated
with Forrest in-several important opera
tions, grew tired of the contest a few weeks
ago. He found means to communicate
with the federal authorities, and through
them procured a full pardon from the
President as a condition precedent to lay
ing down his arms. Ho will probably

The Military Situation.
Tlie Army and Navy Journal makes a
calm review ot the military situation, with
some sucrffestions as to the probable course
of the spring campaign, which are well
worthy of attention :
"Wo regard Grant and Lee about equal
iu strength, considering the tasks imposed
upon each. Bach, by position, is in a con
dition to resist all possible aggression; and
neither, therefore i.s prepared to make :aiy
vigorous and ttecisive a-utrcssivc movement
with ai;y reasonable chauco of success.
He consider lhomas and lioou to b nec-
essarily out cf the sphere of the present
operations. The former, because he has
been wisely depleted to re in fore Sherman ;
the latter, because of his immense iosse
in men and material durim- his failure iu !
ized force capable of confronting him with
probability of success, threatens so :iiar;y
important points in the enemy's territory,
that concentration to oppose him must
mean the abandonment of positions of con
siderable importance to us."
Sherman's ultimate object is new Rieh
mond, and his advance, upon that point
may occupy three mouths or possibly six,
but not more. His dangtr will come in
the ppriug, when he is far enough ad
vanced to have Wilmington as his" b:se:
"Lcc, by evacuating Petersburg, aud
contracting his lines round Richmond, or
it the emergency shall have proved great
enough, and the force at his di;-pOr:u.l too
meagre to justify even leaving a .str?!!
garrison in Richmond by abandoning his
capital altogether, might endeavor to fail
upon Sherman with superior forces. If
he succeeded in defeating him, he could
gather up the scattered garrisons of Au
gusta, Charleston and Wilmington, ni;d
would probably outnumber Grant and
temporarily restore the condition of affaire
to a mere equal balance. If Shennnn,
finding himself outnumbered, should ma
neuver to avoid battle, aud to connect him
self with Grant, it would bo nearly impos
sible to compel him to fight ; but he might
be forced to leave the road open to the
West. A drawn battle would give fhe
same alternative to Lee. This would
insure us Virginia and the Carolina, but
would transfer tho conflict to Western
ueorgia, viaoama, ui.-?is.mr.pi ar.a lcv.-j
nessee, where our long line of com muni-
cation places us at every disadvantage, and
wheie, with determination, a prolonged
resistance, exhausting to both parties,
would be tho re-'ult. This is the utmost
which we think the enemy's military
possibilities permit him to accomplish."
Massacre of Ncgro Soldiers. The
Louisville Journal confirms the rua-sacre
of thirty-five-negro soldiers by rebel guer
rillas near Simpsonville, Ky , reported by
telegraph a few days ago. They were
guarding a drove of government cattle on
the way to Louisville from Camp Nelou.
The day being cold, and no danger being
apprehended, the soldiers were allowed to
straggle along by themselves, while their
officers stopped tu warm at various houses
on the road. One-half of the command
marched iu front of the cattle, while the
other portion kept in the rear ot the drove.
The cattle and tho gu;ird were not fur from
Simpsouville, when fifteen guerillas dashed
upon "the party guarding the rear of the
cattle, taking them completely by surprise.
It is presumed the negroes surrendcrrd
and were shot down ia cold blood, us but
two of the eutiro number escaped one of
them by secreting himself behind a wagon,
the other by runuing, as he was mot rov
eral miles from the scene of the tra-rcdy,
wounded and nearly exhausted. Thirty
five dead bodies were counted lying in tV.ii
road and vicinity. It was a horrible
butchery. The guerillas returned to Simp
sonviile without one of their number
wounded, and reported that they had
killed twsnty-five of the negroes. " They
then moved off in another direction.
