A'"i ". ith:legislative euactment-of this ki'v.i, what better off-would theslaves l - than before, they-wero free?

Wo h ivi never felt the noed of such legisla tive enactment hero, and we don't be lieve it ie necessary there. Wo don't hour any propositions made for legls 1 a?ve enactments to compel the em ployer to fulfill his part of the contract? an-1 f he flnlmus"of~the "insist" i? clear enough. It is to put the blacks back ?j-'iiii into a condition as near as possi 'i 1.'"cry, and keep them there. It is ?.ino ?hat thyroid masters at tlie South '.v'oro mad? to understand that freedom .?>r the black man means just what it u.-::ius for a white man, and that there r. no call for "legislative enactments" ? . -h <lo\notffcpply equally to ail clas I'ho %ooner they understand this ? no ijrfUer-iMvill bo for all parties con '?? ?;rnod. " Well what next? The ingenuity of the English apologists for the rebels in finding something good to say of their rained cause, ' ts so extraordinary as '*litiost to command our admiration. Ihc London To*l, l'almerston's organ, h hit on a most brilliant idea. It maintains that the result of our war Is not a verdict in favor of Republican liif-'iuitious, that the south, which is conquered^ really represented the prin ciple':, on which the Republic was founded, inanely: State sovereignty, carrying witu it tho right of a State to socedo, and that therefore the triumph of the government is the overthrow of Republicanism. Could assurance and misrepresentation farther go? That is tho stuff of which public opinion is made in England. Thrt Is the reading **'hich a first class journal, representing tho Premier of England, iriakes of his tory. That is tho enlightened and in ' --?lligont spirit with which it discusses our affairs. Of course it is very wil ling to concede to the south that the .?ijjh. v! iocesslon lrS essential to our Republicanism, because then it is vir -u vll . proved th*t a Republican gov ernment cannot long exist, but must fly in piece* by virtue of its centrifugal force. Ii K 'inwilling to confosa that our flop1??'?': an system docs in fact have a .? j -. iei : yf checks and balances, which prevents the disruption of the nation on s?ich protoxts as were sot up by the rebels. It sees the dauger to the Euro pcan system, which lies in theadtuls riou that iv .i* only by virtue of our truly Republican Bplrlt a_#d system ?hut v. o have beeu able to endure such a tri ?l us would have proved fatal to r-.ny European monarchy. Hence all thoitionary European papers which ?? few months ago wore declaring that '? ir Republican government was failing, ?ocmise It w^* Republican, are now t.yinij to persuade their credulous r that It is only by cruel despot ; m, by tho violation of till the prin fiplos ol Republicanism,-that we have r.vo?-coo?t> the rebels. But they will not deceive tho great " mass of European r-i The middli ug classes and some ' ? the lowest classes as know anything of ?<nr affairs, the laborers of Germany, tho operators of England, even the ) - v in lielaud, feel that in effect ' 1 victory i* their victory, andtliat tho 1'hrew of tho rebellion is tho triumph Republicanism and of freedom. it " m' ui unto the weak and the simple '?'vl tho uneducated to perceive, as bv fin instinct, what 'those editors, who r-i . nt parliamentary leaders and gro.?< parties, fail to comprehend. v ??.

Da\1s. He prefaces hi.- published memorandum thus: We have before stated tliat Mr. Davis, late Rr? sideut of the states engaged In iuo rebellion, had not communicated to the people w ho had elected him, aud trusted him, thcfltuth in regard to the r. i ui ! Ft > j-t r? ss afonrbe Conference.' N thai the aforesaid Davis has no l ?,i ! power to artcjtt aud confine per son- <viiUout the benefit .of habeas cor j uv; or his c**?ans to Instigate mobs o? soldiers and irresponsibly iuen to threat ertv; or for officials to arrest persons and suppress papers for publications without his sanction?it may be as well to let the people know the truth. Wo will now give the history of that convention as nearly as we canremein ber it from the statement of Mr. Steph ens to us. directly after his return. ? The editor of the Sentinel prooeeds to tell, with some minuteness, the pro codings of the Fortress Monroe con ference, the substance of which is already familiar fo the world. He gives great credit to Mr. Lincoln for the di u llli whioh he told tho rebel commissioners that the Government would never treat with the .Confederacy aa -*? power?nor with the States as individual members of a power at war with the United States. The Government would simply treat with them us Status in revolt, but will ing' to cease from (heir rebellion. Mr. Lincoln stated fairly that the only ground upon Which he could rest the justice of the war?cither with his own people or with foreign Powers?was that it was not a war tor conquest, but that the States never had been sepa rated from the Union. Consequently he could not recognize another Govern ment insideof the one of which he alone was President, nor admit tho separate independence of States that were yet a part of the Union. That, said he, would bo doing what you havo so long asked Europo to do In vain, aud.be resigning tho only thiqg" that the ' armies are fighting for. To that Mr. Hunter replied at length, in rather Congressional style, urging thnt the recognition of Mr. Davis'power to n)ake a treaty was the Qrstiuid Indis pensable step to poace, and referring to the correspondence between King C'liurles the First and his Parliament as a reliable precedent) of a constitutional ritlor. treating with rebels. Mr. Lincoln's face then wore that indiscribable expression which gener ally preceded his hardest hits, and he remarked: 44 Upon quest ions of history I must refer you to Mr. Seward, for he b? posted in such things, and I don't propose to he bright. My only distinct recolloction of tho matter is, that Charles lost his head,11 That settled Mr. Hunter for a while. There was little said about the fact that an armistice would be of no bene fit, unless it preceded that which the North must have, if her armies stopped from tho tide of victory, to wit: the restoration of tho Union and its laws. Mr. Lincoln remarked that whatever L-onsequences may follow from the rc L'stablishment of that authority, it must be accepted; but individuals subject to pains and penalties under the laws of the United States, might rely upon a very liberal use of the powers confided to him to remit those ])ains and jjenalties ami peace be restored. rte also stated in the above connec tion, that limited as he was Jt>y the Constitution, he could not change or impair the power of Congr&ss, nor abol ish its laws, nor stay tho judgments of tho courts; for tho legislative and judi cial powers had coequal jurisdiction with the executive. But he did offer all tho power of mercy, and pardon and inlluence, both as tile Chief Magistrate und as a popular party leader, and that is a bettor oiler than rebels- on the eve of destruction and ruin over had before from a victorious power. Mr. Hunter stated that he had never entertained any fears for his person or Life from so mild a Government as that of the United States. To which Mr. Lincoln retorted, that he, also, had felt aasy as to the rebels, but not always so aasy about the lamp posts around Washington city?a hint that he had iilcoady done more favors for the rebels than was oxactly popular with the rad ical men of his own party. During the conference the proposed amendments to the Constitution adopted by Congress on the 31st, were brought to notice; these amendments provido that neither slavery or involuntary servitude, except for crime, should exist within tlio United States, or any place within its jurisdiction, and Congress should have power to enforce the amendmont by appropriate legislation. Mr. Lincoln liau almost assumed the tone of argument, and intimated that the States might do much better to re turn to the Union at once, than to stand tho chances of continued war, and the increasing bitterness of feeling in Congress. And that the time might come when we would cease to be an erring people, Invited back to the Union as citizens; but looked upon, perhaps, as enemies to be exterminated or ruined. Mr; Seward then remarked: "Mr. President, It is as well to inform these gentlemen that yesterday Congress acted upon tho amendment to the Con i stitution abolishing slavery." Mr. Lincoln stated that was true, and suggested that there was a question as to the right of the insurgent States to return at once and claim a right to vote Upon the amendment to which the concurrence of two-thirds of the States was required. He stated that it would be desirable to have tho institution of slavery abol ished by tho consont of the people, as soon as nossible?ho hoped within six years. Ho also stated that four hun dred millions of dollars might be offer ed as compensation to tho owners, and remarked, "You would be surprised wero I to givo you the names of those I who favor that." Mr. Hunter said something about the i inhumanity of leaving so many poor , old negroes and young children' desti : tute, by encouraging the able-bodied I negroes to run away; and asked what are they?tho helpless?to dq ? | Mr. Lincoln said that remiiided him , of an old friend in Illinois, who had a ; crop "f potatoes and did not witiit to dig them. So he told a neighbor that he would turn in his hogs and let them dig theiu for themselves. But, said the neighbor, the frost will soon Ik* in the ground, and when ihe soil is hard froz en, what will they do then? To which the worthy farmer replied, ''let 'an root ' ' Mr. Stephens said he supposed that was the ongintd of "Root Hog or Die," and a fair indication of the future of the negroes. The whole meeting was friendlv, and the imrtiug cordial as reported' Mr. Stephens reported to Mr. Davis that nothing had been done, but that nothing was determined, and that if he relied upon the sincerity of Mr. lilair, the [conference was but a confirmation of the desire for peace on tho part of the L tilled States, and tho way open for settlement. Mr. Davis. '??\vover, looked upoil the proposal a* insulting, and seemed to hnve the concurrence of Mr. Hunter in that view?somewhat. He wished a statement to go before the public, that only insulting terms were tendered ; but the Commissioners de clined to make it. ou the ground that it was true. Mr. Step".kms came home with but a cause of sorrow, and those who said he talked of couiiug home to make war speeches and denounce the terms offered simply lied. Before Mr. Lin coln's death he thought he was dointr a favor to him not to include that offer of tour hundred millions in gold for the Southern slaves, in the published re port, for it would be used to the injurv of Mr. Lincoln by those of his enemies who would talk about taxation and the debt. Mc.Stepheus has frequentlv expressed no apprehensions should the fortunes of war throw him Into the hands of Mr. Lincoln, and said he would not get out of the way of a raid were it not ior ap pearances, ou account of the office ne ueiu, iiv jstniw oi lur.'ijincoin as" an old friend who bad generally voted with him In Congress, and who had a good heart and fine mind, and was undoubt edly honest. This much we have written, in vindi catlon of our assert lpn when the terms were 'affei i d, that they ? "were not dis honorable.'.,' -W? bo* remarked at the time the conference:ended?and for so doing-was scofffed at and reviled by the who endeavored ^to^3j^tE&C~tjiie public against us by raising the mad-dog cries of "reconstructionist," "enemy to the Southern cause," Ac. We have also felt it a.duty to give Air. Stephen's statement-16~~the public as evidence that when master of his own acts, he hid no part'of the truth from any one who.asked for-lU-r I'l'STER TO HIN WOI.IHF.HN. The following order -was issued by Gen. Custer to the brave men of his command, immediately-after the battle at Appomattox Court House. Many of theNO men belong to our West Virginia I cavalry regiments, and are now sta tioned on Wheeling Island. At the | request of some friends among them, we subjoin the order issued by the Gen eral on the occasion referred to, as fol lows : Headquarters 3d Cav. Div., 1 Appomattox C.
