THE SITUATION IN THK WEST.
We deem it not improper at this time to state
that Gen. Sherman's army has been heavily
reinforced and otherwise strengthened, es
pecially in the arm of cavalry; all bis dis
mounted men having been remounted. The
j fore? (two corps) under Qen. Thomas, now In
i Hood's front, has also been satisfactorily rein
| forced and strengthened, and is amply suf
ficient to ineure that Hood can do no damage
: to speak of in Tennessee or Kentucky, which
. semis to be his aim. Sherman is operating
with bis other five corps in different bodies in
Hood's rear, and is already between him
aiid any possible line for his retreat south
when be sees the necessity of so doing, which,
we apprehend, will not be long hence. The
direction of the marching of all the fine corps
with which Sherman has thrown himself upon
Hood's line of communications leads to the
convict ion that be aims also to take Selma and
Montgomery, if not march on in the same
direction to Mobile. From the facts we state
above, the public will see how much reliance
is to be placed in the story of Sherman's ad
vance on Charleston.
MARYLAND.
Maryland's majority for Lincoln will range
somewhere between nine and eleven thousand.
Her first Congressional District (the Eastern
Shore,) goes from three to four thousand bet
ter for him, than it did for the New Constitu
tion last month. This result in Maryland indi
cates plainly that the people are earnestly anx
ious to make the most of their advantages in the
race of industrial and intellectual progress, se
cured in the adoption of her New Free State
Constitution; thousands who voted againstthat
measure (which deprived themselves or their
immediate friends of much nominal property,)
having thus so soon evinced their reconcile
ment to it, and their determination not sulkily
to throw away the advantages to themselves
as a people It so surely affords.
THK ELECTION8.
The result of the recent election in New
York State is as follows:?Lincoln carries the
State by from 5,000 to 8,COO majority. Fenton
is elected over Seymour bv from 8,000 to 10,000
majority. The Congressional delegation stands
21 Union to 10 Democrats, with one district?
Brooks'?in doubt. Both branches of the Leg
islature is decidedly Union by a ls-ge ma
jority.
The returns received to-day modify the re
ports of yesterday, by giving Missouri to Mr
Lincoln, thus reducing McClellan's electoral

JEFF. DAVIS'S MESSAGE.
The Confederate Congress assembled at Rich,
mond on Monday last, and on that day he sent
in bis message.
Davis opens up with the startling declara
tion that the campaign of 1861 has been favora
ble to the Confederacy. They have recovered
ground in Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi,
&.c. In Louisiana he says the dominion ot the
United States is reduced to the country com
manded by the fleet, and in Arkansas to "a few
for'jfled posts." But he omits to mention the
important consideration that what is so held
by the fleet and the fortified posts Is of such
importance as to give the United States the
virtntl command of the whole territory, so that
whenever it shall be the policy of the National
Government to move troops into Arkansas and
wesvrn Louisiana, they will be able to repos
sess the country without a serious contest. This
little matter in the military way Mr. Davis
finds it convenient to leave out of his account.
In reciting his successes, he also makes men
tion of Price's invasion of Central Missouri, to
enable the people ot that State to strike a blow
tor ''their liberation." Well, they did strike
tnat blow for "liberation," bat it was "libera
tion" from the tender mercies of Price's as
sassins and robbers, and the effect of the
"blow" was to hurl Price headlong from Mis
souri, with the loss of all his artillery and
wagt.a trains, and witn his liberating army
dlsoipnnized into a fugitive rabble.
Davis discusses Atlanta. He says the cap
ture ot that place by the Union army has had
no ad ? erse "influence on the spirit or the cour
age" the Confederacy. What he may mean
by adverse influence, we of coqrse are unable
to say; but the capture of Atlanta had the ef
fect to create wider spread discontent at the
South, and eli-eit numerous letters looking to a
termination of the war and reconstruction of
the Union from statesmen of the highest po
sition in the "Confederacy." This feeling
spread from Georgia to South Carolina on the
one side, and to Alabama on the other, and to
counteract it a convention of the Governors of
the States was necessary, and was held at Au
gusta. It had the effect in Alabama to prevent
tbe Legislature from voting a single dollar, or
ti king a single step to prolong the war in that
State. It likewise compelled Davis himself to
make a pilgrimage to Georgia to correct its
"influence," where he admitted the loss of At
lantn to be a deplorable event, and where it
afler'-d his temper to such an extent that he
fell ? to Cursing like a very drab," pious as he
preimds to be. It also had sufficient inilu
en<. r0 cause Gov. Brown to call the Georgia
mi: . from the service of Hood in ntter dis
gut [f these are not adverse influences r?n
the spirit and courage of the Confederacy, Jeff,
mus. iiave a very peculiar notion Of idver?
sity
H- i -ien goes on to say that "Sherman has
fceei i impelled to withdraw on the line of his
ad' t.ce," and he indulges in a nice bit of
gi ation over this purely imaginary result.
1 us time they are probably somewhat bet
tei . ormed at Richmond of the direction in
vi ru Sherman has "withdrawn," and what
a .-??? t ling commentary will his Dresent where
at be upon this piece of falsehood in the
ir ;e.
' mg disposed of these unpleasant subjects,
D. ? ? then turns to his unhappy " foreign
re ins." Here he relieves himself by venting
a .t-1 at Christendom in general and per
r ? - England in particular.
? m t;e rebel finances. Davis, after remarking
tb ? ere is nothing discouraging in the state
ot ur.. ecuniosityin which rebeldom is plunged
Uj> i. the eyes, immediately goes off into a
1hiu> i ation over the worthless condition of the
c uticy. He says that the chief difficulty lies
ii "want ot faith in its ultimate redemp
ti- ? '* Davis proposes to correct this popular
int r-lity by "pledging the faith" of the Con
te< racy against any further "taxation" of
nt t. This is only another way of calling for
a ledge against repudiation; for the late
?m- * of thirty, three per cent, of their treasury
nc t- in circulation was repudiation to that
ext- i.t.
J e urges universal conscription, and says:
"Tiie exemption from military duty now ac
corded by law to all persons engaged in certain
specified pursuits or professions, is shown by
experience to be unwise: nor is it believed to
be defensible in theory. The defense of home,
home, family, and country is universally rec
ognized as the paramount political duty of
every member of society; and in a form of gov
ernment like ours, where each citizen enjoys
an equality of rights and privileges, nothing
can be more invidious than an unequal distri
bution of duties and obligations."
In regard to the propoaed arming of slaves,
Davis professes to be against the measure, for
reasons that he sets forth, hut really because
the bare mention of it has already called forth
a storm of opposition from all quarters of the
South. He consequently submits to bis Con
gress a modified proposition. He suggests that
forty thousand slaves should be taken as
pioneers and engineer laborers; that it will be
necessary to hold these for considerable
lengths of time; that the Confederacy should,
therefore, buy these slaves, and having thus
acaulred a right of "property" in them, shontd
then consider them as ''persons," and offer
them their liberty as a reward for their fideli
ty. It is queried whether they shall be sot free
at the commencement ot their military service
as an Inducement to be faithful, or whether
they shall be held In slavery until the end, and
then emancipated as a reward. He inclines to
the latter plan. ... A ,, ,
But this proposition will fall in the rebel
Congress, where the slareholdlng Interest is
largely in the ascendant. It has already raised
a storm of opposition. It is held to be a worse
form of "abolition," and a more flagrant viola
tion of State rights than anythingevar proposed
by President Lincoln. The Richmond Whig
has already pounced upon this part of the
message with savage seventy.
On ttie question of peace Jeff is lugubrious.
He cays;
"The disposition of this Government for a
peaceful solution ot the issues which the ene
my has referred to the abttrament of arms has
been too often manifested, and Is too well
known, to need new assuranoes. Bat while it
is true that individuals and parties ia the
United S ates have indicated a desire to substi
tute reason lor force, and by negotiation to stop
the farther sacrifice of bumaa life, and to ar
rest tlve calamities whioft bow an lot both coon
tries, authorities who control ibe Oav?rn
ment of our enemies have too ott*n &nd too
clenrlv express* d their resolution to mnke no
pence except on term* of oar unconditional ?tib
tnission aud degradation, to leave ? anv hop#
of ihe ceMauon of DoHilitlM until the dilution
of their ability to conqner us is dispell.
Atnone thou* who are already disposed tJT
neace manv are actuated by principle and dit
aoDroval and abhorrent* of the iniquiteut war
fare that their Government is waging, while
others flre moved by the conviction that it is no
?ong? to the Interest of the United State. ?,
continue a strr-ggle >? which success u unit
^Whwnever this fast growing conviction shill
nave taken firm root In the minds of a major
ity of the northern people, there will be pro
duced that willingness to negotiate for peace
which is now confined to our side. Peace is
manifestly impossible unless desired bf both
fiattlM TO this war, and the disposition Tor It
among our enemies will be best and most cer
tair.ly evoked by 'he demonstration on our pvi
nf ability ?nd unshaken d-termlnation to de
fend our Tights, and to bold no earthly price
too deai lor their purchase Whenever th-re
shall be on the part of our enemies a desire for
neace there will be no difficulty in finding
means bv which negotiation can be opened;
but it is obvious that no agency can be called
into action until this desir" shall be mutual.
When that contingency shnll happen. theGov
ernment to which is confided the tre*ty-m\
uin? rower can be at no loss for means adapted
to accomplish so desirable an end.
In the hope that the day will soon b> reached
when under L?i fine favor these States may be
allowed to enter on their former peaceful pur.
suits and to develop the abundant natural ie
sources with which they are blessed |-t us
then resolutely continue to dev .to our united
,ir,d unimpaired energies to the defense of our
homes our lives and our liberties. This is the
path to poace. Let us tread it with con
fidence in the assured result.
