\-e dtlect particular attention of
our soldiers and civilians to the ad
dress of Geu. Smith. Though not
lengthy, it is to the point, and con
veys a pretty correct idea of our
situation.
We publish in to-day's paper, an
account of the interview between
Gen. Wallace, of the United States,
and the Confidetrate auth r'ities, at
Brownsville.
We understand that a Dr. Fluwers
living near Bastrop, La., was killed
on the 6th inst., biy some of his ne
groes. One of the negroes was
caught and burnt.
During the week northernl dis

\'Ve would advise tIhnse persons

Lieutt. Cal. Gryv arrived here last
weekl from Brownsville, as hearer of
dispatches to I31aj. Gen Walker. fr nat
(hen. Slaughter, who reportedl the re
sults of ain tneresting tan d imtlportnstl

Maryland. enjoying the ent iri- conti
dewnte of GenL. Granit. and sent Sowth
by hitm on ani insapection tollr. for thIt
benefit of his health, a steamnler being
placed at his disposal.
We have been permitted byv Ilaj.
Genl. Walker to iook over the ,fliciail
documents. and with his sanctotn,
publish a synopsis of their contents
This publicity will doubtlss no.t
please Gen. Wallace, who desired
Gen.. Slaughter writes-tlhat " his
mission he kept strictly private."-
lie was infbormed, however. that (en.
Walker would be infhrmed of" anltV
and atll things that inight occurr dur
ing the interriew ;" and C;en. Walker
in his tinln, desires that the pt.oplh. of
Texas -hoati bencqunainited with the
treachery Mr. Lincoln proposes to
them th-nough his confident, his tool,
Wallace.
Cn the 7th Marelh,Gen. Slaughter
received a conmmunicati, n from a Mr.
Chas. \Worthington, asking for a per
sonal interview. Mr. W. is a son
in-law of the late lon. Forbes ]3rit
ton, metiber of the Texas Sellnate
from Corpus Christi, where 11r. W.
resided before the war. He wa.r just
from New Orleans, whe-c'e Gen. Wal
lace, on arrivinig froom the North im
mediately sought himr out, and in
quired if he could not place him (Gen.
iVallaceeto beg a perseinl int-rview,"
to colnfer in relation to the war ; and
to interehanige ideas concerning the
posslbility of adopting a basis, utponi
Swhich the Collnfedierate ind United
States government might treat; and
-.ltnimately concede a peace honora
ble t, both.
After some hesitation Gen. Slaugh
ter determined to grant the inter
view "for the reason," he says "that
whatcver might. beo Gesn. Wallace's
object, he could obtain nothing from
rme," &nd that the information elicit
ed from Gen. W. might be vainuable.
Gen. 8., by agreement, proceeded
with his Staff, to Point TIsabel .w, ;ch
he reached at noon; and i >on after
Ge i. Wallace and Stall' 1 t1fro Im n
til,g ft' trucn e boat. Gen. Shaulght'r
on ellteting General Wallace, sta:ted
to him as before mUlentioued, tlhat (st!n
Walker would be informed of all that
might transpire; and, furth.rt , or at
he (Gein S.) would ontinu' hix Iltf,
simply, to listening tI his (".:;,.. \V.)
propositiols, and to al. ieg luch
tquestiuus aismight be neCcl.oeary for
the explanation of them.
Col. John S Ford was then intro
duced by Gen. Slaughter, wrho had
previously directed himi to ,e present
at the interview and palticipatet ill
the discussiou of quetito:.s arLisi 1lg.
It was previously agreed by (;en. S
and Col F. to disclaim any authori
ty to acnt upon the propositions G(en
lWallace might pro.-ent.
Ger. Sluiglhter says
" I was indul.cd to take C',l. F' rd
with me from the fact that he w as
