Jeff. Davis at Richmond.
President Davis, accompanied by his Aid,
CoL Wigfull, of Texas,' and Mr. Toombs, of
Georgia, have arrived ut Kichmoud, Owing to
previous severo indisposition of President Da.
vis,, the. trip from Montgomery . , to Richmond
was us private as practicable. Still the En
quirer says, the journey was one continuous
ovation, and bus infused ,u martial fooling that
knows no bounds.. The welcome at Richmond
was enthusiastic Mr, Davis rode on horseback,
and was escorted by the Governor of Virginia
and Mayor of the city. Jp, response to the
hurrahs of (be multitude, Mi'. Davis said; ,
"My Friends aud Fellow Citizens; I am deep

festation. 1 look upon you as the lust beat
hope of liberty; aud iu our liberty alone is our

cess of our country, and, in assorting the birth
right to which you were born, you are to re
member that life and blood areuothing as com
pared with the immense interests you havs at
stake. Cheers. .
"It may be that you have not long beeu
trained, aud that you have much to leuru of the
art of war, but 1 know that there beats iu the
breasts of Southern sons, a determination never
to surrender a determination never to go home
out to teit a uue oi minor, juries oi 'never!
and applause. Though great may be the dis
parity of numbers, give us a fair field and a
tree light, and the Southern banner will float in
triumph every where. Cheers. The country
relies upon you. Upon you rest the hops of
our people; and I have only to say, my friends,
that to the last breath of my life, 1 am wholly
your own." Tremendous cheers.

Hon. J. M. Ashley at Fort Monroe.
Hmi. J. M. Ashley, M. C. in it Icturr lit
tho Toledo Blad, describing bis intorviow
with 8omi) of lLo fugitive, slaves, says: ,
This littlo incident tolls roe onoro plainly
than over, that what 1 said Inst winter in
the House is true, when I declare that "the
logic of events told mo unmjstakulily that
slavery must die."
If I had time and you tho spiice, 1 would
givo in their own words the material por
tion of the pnswers of the most intelligent
slaves. Thorn ja nun Ihinre fprtnin rrpry
slave in tho United States understands this
rebellion, its causes and consequences, far
better thnn I supposed I asked ono old
man, who said he was a Methodist class
leader, to tell mo frankly whether this mat
ter was well understood by all the slaves.
and he Answered mo that it was, and that
be had "prayed, for it many long years."
Ho said their masters had all talked about
it, nud bo added, "Lor bless you honey
we don' give it up last September dnt tho
North's too much tor tu," moaning of course,
that Mr. Lincoln's election was conceded
even there by the slave masters and was
understood and hoped for by all the slaves.
I asked the sanio man how many more
would probably come into tho Fort. He
said "a good many, and if wo's not sent
back you'll see 'em 'fore to-morrow night."
I asked why so, and be said, "Dey'l un
derstand if we's not sent back, dat we'r
'mong our friends, for if do slave bolder see
us wo gets sent right back." . And sure
enough, on Monday about forty or fifty
more, of all ages, colors and sexes, came
into camp, and tho guard was bound to ar
And thus is being developed a practical
plan which 1 bolicvo, under Providence,
will result in universal emancipation, for the
people of this nation will never consent that
those slaves, who refuse to fight against us
and escape to pur camps and aid us all tbey
can, shall be given up now to their assum
ed owners,- or at the conclusion of the war
that tbey shall again' be returned to Slav
ery. The man or party who will do this
thing is already condemned to a political
death,, and will be execrated, as be ought
to be, by posterity.
