Tha Tribune's Washington special says while President Lincoln was in Richmond, Judge Camp bell told htm that in an interview with Davis, Breckinridge and Benjamin, jnst before they left, he said to them that an there was no hope for the Confederacy, and as President Lincoln would not ne gotiate with them, he (Lincoln) would negotiate with the State and recognize the right of the Virginia Legislature to control tbe troops of that State. He then told Mr. Lincoln that if be would permit that body to convene it would doubtless recall the Virgiuiatroons from the field. Mr Lincoln cautioued Jndge Campbell against any mftunderHtauding and gave biia in writing hie only terms, which were those tendered in the Hamp ton Roads' interview, to which he added another, thfit in case the leaders per sisted in the war their property should be relentlessly confiscated. On the way to Washington Mr. Lincoln wrote an or der to Gen. Weitzel to permit the Vir ginia Legislature to convene in Rich mond for the purpose of withdraw iug the Virginia troops from the reb?d army, but not to allow the use of any treasona ble language, nor the adoption of trea sonable measures; but on the very day of Ids death he read a letter from Judge Campbell tinged with the usual rebel in solence, ignoring altogether the propo sition which the President had made to him, and urging that though the milita ry power of the Confederacy was des troyed the spirit of the Southern people was still unbroken. If you want to con ciliate them it will bo wise for you to grant an amnesty, and necessary for you to treat leniently their leading public men and seek their assistance. This was too much lor Mr. Lincoln's goodnature. He characterized Campbell's course as ungrateful and outrageous. Meanwhile the surrender of Lee's army obviated the necessity for convening the Virgiuia Legislature and he sent an order coun termanding the call. The People of North Carolina Anxioun for (he Old Union. The Herald's correspondent atGolds boro says that on Sunday last the dispo sition ot General Sherman's force was such as to insnre Johnston's capture in a very short time. Kilpatrick had pursued the rebels some thirty miles beyond Ral eigh, without meeting any resistance from them, Raleigh being in the indis pnted possession of the national forces. The railroad was being rapidly repaired and trains would be running through to that city from Wilmington and Nowbern in a few days. The majority of the people of North Carolina, wPerever General Sherman's troops penetrated, are represented as be ing exceedingly anxious to be allowed to resume their former position in the Union, and perfectly willing, in order to attain that object, to give up the institution of slavery entirely The old 10th army corps has been re organized, and is commanded by General Terry.

Circumstances which have come to the knowledge of the Gov ernment render it nearly certain that Booth's horse fell with him on Friday night, l ltli inst.,and it is believed caused a fracture of one of his legs. It is also reported that he has divested himself of I his moustache. The likeness ol Booth published in Harper's Weekly is said to be correct. The attention of surgeons and the public is called to the circum stances If Booth is lying coucealed and wounded, the rewards ottered and the de tection of his crime to all loyal citizens will soon bring him to light.

Two articles of furniture, ot the Colo uial times, are still extant in the Capitol, namely : tbe Speaker's chair of the House of Burgeaeess, originally decorated with the royal arms of Englaud.- This chair was removed from Williamsburg, aud is now, though shorn of its regal emblems, occupied by the Speaker of the House of Delegates. The tall, tbree-storv stove, Which warmed thoso Colonial halls in succes sion for about one hundred yearn, and for the last thirty years has served to warm the central hall in which stands Houdon's statue of Washing ton, is a work of great note and interest. This stove 1>ears the British coat of armsand other embellish ments as perfect as the day it was cast. The founder of it; Buzaglo, was proud of his work, and when it was shipped from London, August 14, 1770, he thus wroto t # "My Lord" Botetourt: '"The elegance of the workmanship does honor to Great Britain. It excels in grandeur anything ever seen of the kind, and is a master piece not to be equalled to Eu rope. It has met with giVat applause, and could uot be sufficiently admired." The "warming machine," as Bu/aglo called it, t liia masterpiece of arts and science, doomed to carry his name to pos terity, was presented to the House of Burgessess of Virginia by the Duke of Boa u fort. It has survived three British monarchs, ami been cotemporaneons with three kiugly monarc hies, two Republics, and two Imperial Governments in France, but of only one constellation of Re publics in the United States. The Crowning Evil lu Virginia is the constant and increas ing iutlux of the negroes into Richmond. It is doubly an evil. They multiply so much an already too extensive pauper population, and' they denude the farm lands of the labor necessary to putting in the crops aud securing tbe harvests the present year. It is not intended to imply that these negroes should remain on flie plantations in their former condi tion, but facts plainly stated will show that the Government should uow, when all danger of their deportation by their former masters is over, discourage, if uot positively prohibit, their hegira into the cities. ITere they are the most unprofi table of consumers. Bred all their lives to agricultural pur suits. they are ignorant of the mechani cal trades, and cannot expect employ ment that would l?e profitable to them selves or the community On the other hand, they would be iu valuable on the plantations during the present season. ? A trip over any ot the Virginia railroads reveals the fact that a lai^e proportion of the soil is lying idlo, while the whole State is cumbered with a starving popu lation. This soil must be cultivated, aud as in many instances its owners have ficd, sound policy would dictate that, for a season at least, it be turned over to the negroes, to make what they can from it. They could certainly support themselves, and that is more tliau they are doing here. General Ord has this matter of the in flux of stranger population, liotli white aud black, under consideration, and some policy in respect to it will shortly lw? an nounced by general orders, aud in his bauds it may safely he left. The Plninr. The Siberian plague, as it is called, was, at last accouuts, raging at St. Pe r... wrtw it will extend to the continental nations. There is every reason to believe that, like the Asiatic cholera, andall thegreat epidemic diseases known to history, it will extend its ravages westward. The French Government has ordered all ves sels from St. Petersburg to be put in strict quarantine, while the Austrian Govern ment has sent a medical co-umissiou to Russia, to inquire into the nature of the epidemic, and the best means of treating it. There is no donbt but this is the same disease as that known to history as the plague, aud which has, in its time, visif?nl every continent bnt ours. Should if extend to Western Europe, it may not spare us, and hence its progress will from this time forth be watched -with the keen est solicitude Its character is that ot a contagious fever, accompanied by buboes, carbuncles, and other unsightly erup tions. Persons taken with it often die within thirty hours. It generally lasts, however, a week or ten days before ter minating fatally. ?

What Will bk thb Fomos Poijct or the New Prmidrxt?? We believe from what we know of the late venera ted President and of the present one, that the latter will be ranch more demount ra ti re and exacting in his foreign policy.? Mr. Lincoln was a man of such a gentle nature that the idea of war for any le*> purpose thaa the actaal preservation ot the national existence was abhorrent to him; and, moreover, the political associa tions of his life did not lead to the asser of an extreme national policy Bot the case is different with Mr. Johnson. Mr. Johnson has alwaya been a Democrat of the Southern school ? that is, so far as foreign policy is involved, committed out and out to the Mouroe doctrine, the an nexation of Texas, the acquisition of Cu ba, and so on; and be is a man of the greatest tenacity of purpose We do not doubt, therefore, that whoever is Secre tary of State, France, England and Spain will soou find our foreign policy of a more ?xacting chant tsr than it has been sin- ? Spain got into the St. Domingo bosineas, France into, Mexico, or sine* England committed herself in snch a hurry to her remarkable neutrality ?A'. T. Herald, AfrUMk Death kyViolrvck ?No President of the United States or member of the Calv inet was ever before murdered Au at tempt was made to fake the life of Gen. Jackson, in his day, in 1S33, l?nt it failed. The only Cabinet officers who were killed since the organization of the Government were Abel P Upshur, Sec retary of State, and Hon. John A.Gilmer, Secretary of the Navy under John Ty ler's Presidency; in 1813. Both were from Virginia. They were killed by the bursting of Commodore Nt<?ckton's big gnu, called the "Peacemaker," on board the steamer Princeton. The President, John Tyler, was aboard and narrowly escaped a similar fate. Gkn Grant is to leave Washington to dayfor Burlington, New Jersev. He will pronattiy next w?>k ro 'tticnmouu, which he has not yet visited. The Pres ident and Cabinet are anxious he should remain a* much as possible in Washing ton, in order that they may have his ;m1 vice in cabinet meetings at this impor tant erisis of national affairs. Geueral Grant and President Johnson have had a lengthy interview aud they agree per fectly as to the policy for the future. (Jen. Grant spokn in the highest terms of the Presideut. Ir is a very carious fact that the at tempt to mnrder Secretary Seward has proven to Ik* h benefit to him and proba bly the means of saving his life. Blood had Ihm'H gathering in his face for some days, and the very lav that lie was stab I mm I the physicians had discTTssed the propoha' to lauee it in order to relieve him The assassin did this very work by catting gashes in each cheek No doubt of hisiecovery is now entertained. It is l?elieved that the extended publi cation which has been made of the arrests and subsequent investigation of persons believed to l?e concerned in the terrible tragedy of Friday last, has defeated, somewhat, the ends of justice. A re quest has therefore Wen made that no such publication be made for the pres ent When all of the conspirators are arrested and imprisoned there will prob ably be no objection to the .'full details being given In the meantime the coun try may rest assured that the efforts ol the Government are being crowned with rapid success, in fact to such an extent that the President's murderer tuay be forthcoming at any moment. It is thought that it will appear that many of the -peculations as to the exteut of this conspiracy will prove correct. Grixt'h Terms. ? A correspondent of the JVihune say* that "the terms upon which Lee was permitted to surrender the fragments of the icbel army under his command are regarded with disgust and unqualified indignation by large numbers of the most sensible, loyal and influential citizens iu this region." This correspondent represents the opinions of a tew people who refused to volunteer, and who excused themselves upon the plea of weak eyes, weak knees or weak hocks when they were drafted To call them either "sensible, loyal or iuduen tial" is absurd. They are willing to have our brave soldiers killed unnecessarily; Imt they arc not willing to go to the war themselves. They |? ofess to have more patriotism than the Lientenaut General ; but they are careful never to show their faith by their works. ? ,\Vn- York Urrald. The PoRruwuicsK Outrage?
