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

lunter and Campbell, on board the
trainer River Qoeen in Hampton

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
[Ara»l)ington special says:
Mr. Seward dociaree, without re

Sherman next week.
It is said that the President and Sec

Irebels upon a general exchange of
prisoners, which it to take place forth*
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.

we believe, pull him and his slave em

When the rebels are ready to make

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
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
