Mdre- MORTIMER, for two days, (stat.ni terms) at
a»%hig Office. ai,u-u
A SPECIAL despatch to the New York Tribune,
from Washington, dated 7th instant, says:
“ The rnmor that the President is earnestly en
gaged in Richmond in settling upon some just and
generous proffer of pardon to the Rebel rank and
file, gains credence in irfluential quarters. It Is
known that Secretary Seward was summoned to
convene there with the President the day of his se
rious accident. Grant also telfgraphed the Secre
tary of War, requesting that no one be permitted
to viBit Richmond for the present, while rnmor as
serts tb"‘ commissioners, official or self-constituted,
from Alabama, Georgia and North Card.na, are in
that city, and in conference with the President ”
The correspondent of the Tribune is mistaken in
locating the President at Richmond. He only re
mained here a few houre, and then proceeded, we
believe, to Fortress Monroe.
In this connection we may say that the recent in
terview between the President and Judge Campbell
related to the rest oration of peace in all the States,
and not to Virginia alone, as might be inferred from
the brief notice cf the “consultation of citiz:ns”
published in the Whig of Saturday. Whilst every
one will rejoice at the restoration of peace and pres
_la._ t - -11 iC. Ca.a__—_a_t_• t_
expression of the hope that the p iblic men who are
to take part in the reinstatement of Virginia to her
ancient position in the sisterhood of States, will ad
dress themselves to that business without unneces
sary delay. Virginia was not consulted nor waited
for when Secession became the determined policy of
the “Cotton States," and there is no soucd reason
why “ co-cperation” with them, in accepting the
President’s terms of peace, should be the rale of
proceeding now. Let Virginia lead tii9 way ba.k
to the Union, and present an example of prompt
action to the other States of the late “Confederacy.1
i \NE of the chief arguments used by the advo
J cates of S .ceaalon to seduce the people of Vir
ginia from their allegiance to the Union wus the ar
gument of interest. They represented, with all the
accessories of logic and statistics, that the* Southern
Confederacy” was destined to te the greatest power
upon the face of the globe—that “Cotton was King,”
and that prosperity and wealth would flow so abun
dantly from the vast resources of the South tha’ p *
verty would be unknown within the limits of the
new Utopia.
It was in vain that any argument on the opposite
side was presented, or that the Inconsistency was
pointed out of imputing to the North a merely m=r
cenary policy, whilst the corner-stone of the revo
lutionary scheme was the “almighty dollar.” Of
course, the men who tired the argument of interest
will now assert that the correctness of their theories
could only be tested and proved ly the establish
ment of "Southern Independence but they cannot
deny that the experiment which they inaugurated
has been only productive of ruin, desolation, and
woe. The basis of Southern allluecci, upon
which they chiefly relied for th$ fulfilment of their
predictions, has been demolished, and of coarse the
superstructure falls.
The people of the South, as the delusions of the
past decade wear off, will perceive that their mate
rial interests will be best subserved by the re-esta
blishment of business Intercourse with tho North,
and by recognizing the reciprocal relations between
the two sections. They will hereafter invite, rather
than repel, “Yankej'’energy, indurtry, and capita!;
and when the “era of good feeling" Is rectored
prosperity and csntentment will everywhere prevail.
rpHE occupation of Richmond by a portion of the
Union at my has afforded cur citizens some in
sight into the vast military rwurrcs of the General
Government, and convinced a'l who are susceptible
of conviction of the futility of resistance to the na
tlonal authority. It fcas not only dene this, but it
has revivified in the htarts of thousands that pride
in the power and glory of the Gteat Republic which
formerly caused their hearts to glow with patriotic
ardor, “Uncle Sam forever’- Is oow the uppermost
sentiment of the people. Let every reformed Seces
sionist make some amends for h‘s past folly by vow*,
ing unalterable attachment to the l cion.

ADMIRAL FARRAGUT AND GENERAL GOR
DON’S VISIT TO RICHMOND.
The Norfolk correspondent of the New York
Herald (5tb) gives the following account of the
visit of Vice-Admiral Farragut, Gen. Gordon and
a select party to this city:
A TBTP TO BICHMOND.
Ou the conclua’on of the ceremonies attending
the grand reception given to Vice-Admiral D. G
Farragut, and the celebration of the v!ctory of our i
army by the fall of Petersburg and Richmond, a;
s“!ec: party, composed of Brigadier General George j
H. Gordon, commanding D strict of Virginia; Ad
miral Farragut, Ciptain A. P. Blunt, chief quarter
master of the district; Lieut. C. P. Brown, ald-de- j
camp to Genera' Gordon, and several other officers '
atd civilians, besides Mrs Gen. Gordon, Mrs. Ly
man Doane, and others, left this city on board of the !
fine steamer City cf Hudson, Capt. Fred. Powers,
fer Varina landing, where they arrived at daylight |
yesterday morning. From thence the party started i
for the ex-capital of the late Confederacy, in am
bulances and on horseback, arriving there two hours
subsequent. A number of dietlrgulshed ladles
joined th9 visiting party at Aikeii’a landing.
General Gordon and Admiral Farragut proceeded
at once to the house lately occupied by Jeff. Davis,
where they found the heroic Major General Godfrey
WeitZ9l.
DESCENDING THE I iMES IN/I HE LATE E1BEL FLAQ OP
TBOOE BOAT WILLIAM ALLISON.
A good portion of the city was perambulated by
our visitors, after which General Gordon and Admi
ral Farragut embarked on the steemer William Alli
son. formerly used by the Rrbeh as a dag of truce
bjat, and, notwithstanding the fears of the captain
concerning lnjuty from terpedees, planted by the
P.ete's in th» James river on -Sunday, they insisted
on being tsken down.
A short distance below Rocketts the boat of Gen
Gordon and the Admiral me: a rowboat containing
R^a’Almira’ D. D. Porter and President Lincoln,
ascending to the captured city. At Varina, the Hud
son took cn beard the two intrepid officers who braved
che R-.bel torpedoes, and the ladies, and at an early
hour this morning arrive.: here In gMd order.
Everybody speaka in terms of high pra'se at the
treatment received from Capt. Fred. Powers, tom
manding the Hudson, and Mr. I.vman Deane, the
ob iging Purser of the same. They did everything
in their power to make the guests comiortable.
AN API B0P3UTE BELIC OF TBIASON.
General Gordon brought back as a relic from Jeff.
Davis' heute an ornament in the shape of an eagie,
tbe neck of which is fimly held in the capacious
mouth of an alligator From the beak of the eagie
Is suspended a chain of five links, emblematic of ibe
eagie fettering the South. An American sh’<ld is in
the paws cf the alligator, as having been wrested
fnm tt< spirited bird of freedom. The k< ight of tbe
whole is ten inches, and the spread of tbe eagle’s
wings treasures fiurV'i inches. The rmblem of
•Southern treason illustrated was presented to Jeff,
by a mem'aer of the North Carolina Legislature, who
of late has been bed in preich’ng submission senti
ments, and va> rcaiy to give up the Confederacy.
’i h s even nr’s boat carries this pr ;cious reb.1 relic
to Holton as a oresent from Gen. Gordon to • iov. J bn
A. Andrew, Executive of the Bay State, by whom It
will doubtless te highly appnetated.
PBI80NEBR CAPTUBED FAILING FI OM NOBFOLK, BTC
Tee anncuncement of tbe capture and annihilation
of Manone’a brgace, which in a great measure is
composed of soldiers hailing from this city and Ports
mouth, caused great excitement her-- among the
friends and relatives of th'S. men. A nun ter of
prominent citizens left h. re this morning for Fortress
tfonrie, whe’e transports having these prisoners on
board had arriv.'d tose. the at If possible.
AFFAIRS IN WILMINGTON.
A Wilmington correspondent of the New York
Ttmet, under date of hh Inst, says:
Brig. Gen Joseph R. Hawley, of Connecticut, who
is in command at this place, was born at Cheraw, 8.
C. He is generally tiring satisfaction in his adminis
tration of affairs The citizens almost unanimously
give our troops the credit ot oeca/.eg nearer rowara
them than the Confederate soldiers, and speak of
them, when comparing them with the sailors from
the biockade-runnert as perfect gentlemen. Before
our troops to">k possession of this city, It was a very
ordinary thing to find citizens murdered In toe
st'ects; but now, with a few exceptions, the beet or
der prevails. I have heard of no depredations being
committed, or any violence whatever.
The last of the paroled prisoners who reached our
Imes on the 1st alt, at this poict, are to be sent
North this morsin i. A'l together they will number
about one hundred, mostly gangrenous case.*, follow
ing from ill treatment after amputation. About four
hundred other sick sold ers go at the same tim?.
A malignant contagious fever, brought here by
i onr paroled prisoner*, has been very fata! among
1 the citiz ns. though tne soldiers hive generally es
! caped it. Some call it the “spotted ftvar,’’ but It is
nothing more than tj [ few Ii apcesr

| of srna l-p:x There 3re In h >p!ta’ here three thou
*and sick s'ldiers from Sherman's, Te*ry’s and Scho
field’s arni-s, which is considered a very small rum

The old negro ail, or “’Ir.der's Offi'e,’’ as the
Sootberners cdied It, formerly used by tie Confede
