Camdk.v, S. G August 8 aii jcixpinii<iiion ?i "?;?iniuu?i Kirke" about his Visit to Richmond. A card from "Edmund Kirke," whoso real namo is James R. Gilmore, 37 West Adam street, Boston, was published in tlie Boston Transcript Friday evening. Mr Gilmore says, ol the ex-reverned, now Col. Jqaucs, as follows : With .his (J aqnes) feuppoxed "mission" lhad nothing to do. I went with him?or rather ho went with me, for my pasts directed ("Grant to allow J. Ft. Gilmore and friend to pass our j lifVes to go South")?to llielnnoiid?on Saturday last, and I can say unequivocally that the. President knew nothing of his accompanying me. ' - Mr Lincoln, though an old time friend and acquaintance of Col. Jaques, has not even seen him for now nearly three years. How the newopnpen statements in reference | to our visit to Mr. Davis originated I do not' kuow. Uutil 12 o'clock hist night, when I re- j turned tor my home in this city, I had commit- j limited to "no human being, except Generals ; liutler and Grant, and the President, the. fact i of having been in the Rebel Capital at nil. I am not, and nfiver have' been, connected ' with the New York Tribune. At the earnest J solicitation of Mr.' l.d. Howard Grav, the man- , on-;.,..- ...in.... ?!... i /...n.. j? oi;nii; V?IIIUI VI liiill |V>lU IMI IM > VM'V UL'ill | ! and intimate friend of mine), I did consent, < 1 nearly two years ago, to the Tribune. Associa- ' j lion, publishing cheap editions of thy books 1 j (but that arrangement was long since dis;on-. j tinned); and I did, in-July last, write half a ( j dozen articles for that paper, j L h.ive not, however, exchanged a word w ith i j Mr. Greeley, or even seen him tor fully throe , months, and 1 have no connection with him; j in fact, I know absolutely nothing of his "ne- j gotiations." This much, however, in loferenco j to that nmch-talked of matter, being a Yankee,.j I can guess. It will result in nothing. Jefferson Davis said to me last Suuclay (and with all his faults I believe him a man-of truth): ? "This war must go on till the last of this gen- ; oration fall-in his tracks, and His children seize ! liis musket and light our battles, unless yofl ac- i knowledge our right to self government. We are not lighting for slavery. We are lighting ' j for independence, and that, or extermination, we will have." . . orrruM^aaKrtrawuuu ar,-*.*jc:rtaiyrj?tnvi tum >riu>*a | MONDAY 7J mix Of*, A?;?. 35; j York District reports fdtocu bit-he's ot tiee pro! dueed?one and a half bushels for tithing.
