That the Confederate army fought with all its old tcna

to a postponement of the case*
Mr. McMirhael?No, but we don't wish to go back to

The defence hoie consulted with tlielr client as to
whether lie would give the amount <>f bail required, and
two of Mr. Mi Donald's friends offered to give security lor
the required amount.
Mr McMirhael. however, staled that his client had

be propoeed a meeting on tbe neit day, between tba line*
of Uio two armies. If there was a sincere wish on the
part of General Johnston to make peace it oould geadtly
be accomplished.
Tbe meeting took place on the neit day, at a houne on

Johnston will probably surrender abonl thirty-five

hie army is better supplied with Add guns and horses
than any army the confederacy ever had. A great many
of Johnston's rank and tile are not willing to wait
for the formal surrender, but cut loose and come In
here or go home, as Is most convenient. Hundreds of
