TIIK M 1S9J10N OPJACQUES AND OIL-
MORE TO IllCIIlXOND, AND TUB
A great deal has been said of late about the
mission of Col. Jacques and Mr. Gil more to
Richmond. The snbject takes a new shape
and assumes Importance by reason of the fact
tbat Mr. Benjamin, the "Secretary of flute" to
Jeff. Davis, employs It as the basts of an offi
cial paper, addressed to Mr. Mason at Paris.
It assumes that what Mr. Ollmoreand Colonel
Jacques said to the rebel authorities at Rich
mond, was authorized by the President Mr.
Benjamin lays (the Italics being ours:)
Mr. Gil more replied that they came unofficial
ly, bat with the knowledge, and of the desire of
1r. Ltncofo; that they thought the war had
cone far enoucbi that It could never end ex.
tept by some sort of agreement; that the agree
ment mi riu sb wen oe maae now aa aiier iur
tber bloodshed; that they knew by the recent
address of the Confederate Congress that we
were willing to make peace; that they admitted
tbat proposals ought to come from the North,
and tbat tbey were prepared to make these
proposals by Mr. Lined' authority; tbat it
was necessary to hare a sort of Informal un
derstanding In advance of regular negotiations,
lor ii commissioners were appointed wiinoni
some such understating they wonld meet,
(juarrei. and separate, leaving the parties more
bitter against each otter than before; that they
ktiew Mr. Lincoln's vkt, and would state them f
firiura try ine a rtnaem to ao to, ana aesirea 10
earn his in return.
I again Insisted on some evidence that they
came from Mr. Lincoln; and, In order to sat
isfy me, Mr. Gllmore refuTed to the fact that
permission for their coming through our lines
bad been asked cffl ally by Gen. Grant In a
letter to Gen. Lee, nd that Gen. Grant In that
letter bad asked tbat this request should be re
ferred to President Dsvl Mr. Gllmore then
ahowed me a card vtrltUn and signed by Mr.
Lincoln, reaurstlri: r.cu. Grsut to aid Mr.
GUmore and Men I . patting through hit Unit
into the ConfeJeran..
Jacques then sail ihat his uame was not put
on the card, for the reason that It was earneally
desired tbat their UIt should be kept secret i
that he had come Into the Confederacy a year
ago, ana aaa visited rciersourg on a similar
errand, aud that It was feared If his name should
become known tha: some of those who had
formerly met him In PUertbnnr would conjec-
bU-e the purpose for which he now came. lie
said that the terms of peace which thev would
offer to the President would be honorable to the
Confederacy; that they did not desire that the
Confederacy should accept any other terms,
bat would bo glad to have my promise, as they
gave theirs, tbat their visit should be kept a
profound secret If It failed to result In peace;
that It would not be just that either should seek
acy advantage by divulging the fact of their
overture ior peace, it unsuccessful.
I assented to this request, and then rising,
uldi ' Do I understand yon to state distinctly
tbat you come as messengers from Mr, Lincoln
for the purpose of agreeing trith the Frttident at
to thi proper mode of inaugurating a formal
negotiation for peace, charged by Mr. Lincoln
with authority for stating hit ovn vievt and re
ceiving those of President Davis 1" Doth
answered in the ajflrmathe.
Mr. Benjamin relates what took place be
tween Gllmore, Jacques and Jeff. Davis as
follows the Italics being ourst
The President came to my office at nine
o'clock In the evenlnc. and Col, Ould came a
few minutes later, with Messrs. Jacques and
GUmore. The President said to them that he
bad heard from me that thev came as messen
gers of peace from Mr Lincoln; that as such
they were welcome; that the Confederacy bad
never concealed Its desire for peace; and tbat
he was ready to hear whatever tbey had to offer
on tuat subject.
Mr. Gllmore then addressed the President,
and la a few minutes bad convevsd the In
formation tbat these two gentlemen bad come
to luenmona impressed witn the, idea that this
Government would accent a peace on a basis of
a reconstruction of the Union, the abolition of
slavery, ana tne grant oi an amnesty to me
peopio oi tueoiatea as repentant criminals, in
order to accomplish the abolition of slavery, It
was proposed tbat there should be a general
vote of all the people of both federations, In
mass, and the majority of the vote thus taken
was to determine that as well as all other dis
puted questions. Then wtrt ttated to be Mr,
Lincoln' t view.
Wo are authorized and requested to an
nounce, notwithstanding all that has been
written and ssldonlhe subject, that neither
Mr. Gllmore nor Col. Jacques on theone hand,
nor Mr. Greeley on the other, has ever been,
nor Is now, authorized to express any " de
sires," "views," or opinions of the President
of the United States, either In Canada or Rich
mond, on the subject of a " negotiation for
peace," beyond what he has plainly and care
fully written over hit own signature that the
million to Richmond was Initiated and exe
cuted by Messrs. Gllmore and Jscques on their
own private account; that they had no author
ity whatever to speak, dlrectlv or Indirect!
for the Preildf.nl or the United States, officially
or unofficially, or for Abraham Lincoln unof
ficially or privately.
If Mr. Benjamin's TCport 0f the sayings of
Mr. Gllraore and LA, Jacques while they-
i6u M.tumuuu cjrrcct,they assumed a
responsibility not glvw to them, and made
statements wholly untrue.

TI1K CHICAGO COMVKNTIOK.
The telegrsph to-dsy gives us some addi
tional particulars of the procwdlngi of the
Chlcsro convention. It seems that the New
York party hsd control or the entire conven
tion. The Maryland and Delaware delega
tions, who could not vote for McCtellan on
account of Ms attempt to arrest the Maryland
Legislature, voted for Seymour, of Connecticut,
as did also a few of the extremely venomous
copperheads bf Indiana and Ohio. Horatio
apologized to Harris, of Maryland, saying that
M ho (Seymour) did not understand the pur-
port of his remarks, and he now desired to say
thattbathlgh-tonedgentletnan waa Incapable of
taking position In this convention and partici
pating in Its deliberations, whllo refusing to
abide by Its decisions."
Horatio likewise made some ironical re
marks, to the effect that ho " would pledge his
life that, when Gen. McClellan Is placed in the
Presidential chair, bo will devote all Mi anergics
to the best Interests of his country."
Little Mac's energies Is a big thing. It is
noge. His energies will never mind.
Says the telegraphic report 1 " Mr. Wlckllffe
offered a resolution to the effect that Kentucky
expects the first act of McClellan, when In
augurated in March next, will be to open the
Lincoln pritona and set the captive fret which
was carried unanimously."
Of course, if the venerable Mr.Wlckllffe suc
ceeds in getting his candidate In he will need
all the criminals and traitors In our prisons to
aid In fulfilling the programme fixed upon by
the copperheads for the final settlement of the
whole mstter. As the election of McClellan
would result In the division of the Union and
the surrender of the border States to Jeff.
Dsvls, U would perhaps be well enough to
carry out Daddy WIckllnVs resolution, and
send all the traitors and thieves where they
Little Georgia McCtellan having been nomi
nated for President dj Belmont, Barlow, and
company, Georgie Pendleton was nominated
for the Vice Presidency. This nomlnstlon
will be very acceptable to Jeff. Pendleton is a
peace man down to hla kidneys. He Is a petti
fogger of respoctsble talents In that line, hav
ing purchased hla knowledge of law of George
Pugh, of Cincinnati Pendleton had money
and Pugh had some brains and legal knowl
edge, and this begat a dose union between
Pendleton was a Virginian by birth, and was
related to the "Star 8pangled Banner" by mar
riage. Pugh Is an Ohloan, we believe, but he
is so Intense a Copperhead that he has combed
verdigris out of his hair every morning since
his Southern friends begsn the rebellion. Pugh
has been a well-pronounced traitor from the
beginning of the Insurrection, and in their po
litical sentiments, Pendleton and Pugh am as
much alike as two P's, or two peas. Pendleton
will find himself "In the wrong pew," when
the services of the next Administration com
mence. The people will hardly inaugurate the do
minion of the three Georgles next Msrch, not
withstanding the promise of Georgie Pendle
ton, solicitor In the cause, that he " would fcc
faithful to the grst principles of democracy
and strong In their cause."

The Chlcsgo Convention says, "we will in

on the basis of the Federal VnUm of the Btates,"
that "the aim and object of the Democratic

rights of the Ststes unimpaired.' To accom
plish all this the Convention turns to cursing

In the face of this cowardly programme, Mr.
J. P. Benjamin, the rebel "SecreUryof Bute,"
makes an official announcement to the world
that Jefferson Davis, In ans wer to an unauthor

of the 23th ultimo, Cspt. Pheton, of the gun

Cspt. Pbclon then sent a SO pounder, to which
grape was returned In reply, striking almost
under the stern of the Montlcello.
The Montlcello then opened with 0-1 nch and
30-pounder shell, but received no response, and
found that the steamer had suddenly disap
