The Peace Confetti!fll« Proiidont Lincoln and Secretary 9^ h'nrd returned frotn Fortress Monroe to |Yashin#ton on the 4th inst. They rid an informal confereucc with the ebel commissioners, Messrs. Stephem, lunter and Campbell, on board the trainer River Qoeen in Hampton loads. The conferencc occupied four our*. The President would listen to o proposition short of a restoration of |!JC Union, and the rebels were not au lorized to offer or accept such terms. •nseqnently, the interview resulted In no change of attitude cither of the jrovernment or rebels in other words, It was a failure. The Evening fart't [Ara»l)ington special says: Mr. Seward dociaree, without re hcrvo, that tin1 jwaee negotiations are It total fatJ are, but there arc indication* pat peace will be speedily won by Lvar. Decisive news is expected from Sherman next week. It is said that the President and Sec retary Seward have agreed with the Irebels upon a general exchange of prisoners, which it to take place forth* I with. The rebels are now about to arm [their slaves, and are still confident of success—at least they arc determined to make one more vigorous effort to conquer their independence. •Toff. Davis is not prepared toabdi |cat\ The spring campaign will, as we believe, pull him and his slave em pire down, but they are not down yet. When the rebels are ready to make jK'aoe, they have nothing in the world to do except to stop fighting, lay down their arms and disperse. The campaign just opening, will be tin* winding up of the rebellion, and the grandest of the war. Gen. Sher man, with 50,000 victorious veteran#, has commenced his march northward. tleneral Thomas, with a heavy force, is moving south in search of the rem nant's of Hood's army. More than 20,000 Western veterans are The en route to reinforce Grant as fast as railroads and steamboats can carry them and irresistible Phil. Sheridan will lead the Potomac ariny in the next assault up on I^ee's ragged rebels. Grant's com binations are perfected. The crushing machine is iu motion to overwhelm and destroy the army defending the rebel capital. Peace will come of itself when that army is cut to pieces and dispersed, and not before. General Grant is receiving heavy reinforce ments of veterans from the West, and will soon give employment to Lee's army. Gen. Thomas' army is now ready for a cumpaigu in the south west and altogether the Union coni niauders are ready to open the grandest campaign of the war, which is to completely crush the military pow er of the rebellion. National Intelligencer says It if sow clear enough that the war must go on with increased energy. The rebel loaders insist upon a dis memberment of the Government a jmc qua non to any negotiation.
