A few days since S mator Conway of Kansas, one of the most ultra, as well as one of the ablest of the Repub Ucan members of Congress, made a Strong speech in favor of peace and 'the stopping of the war. The speech !is said to have the approval of Gen. Andrew, Charles Sumner, VV. Philips, 'Horace Greeley and other leading abolitionists, who held acaucus in Washington just before it w is deliv ered. It is a very important and significant demonstration: Mr. Conway in his speech announc l himself as opposed to re-union. He says: 'I mn not in f.ivor of restoring the eomtitution.il relation of the slave halJf.ru to the Uiio i. n r f the war to that end. I have never allowed my self to indulge in fiat superstitious idolatry of the U lion prevalent among simple, out honest people, nor tlio political cant about the Union so prevalent among dishonest ones. That the South h 1 1 established its iiiJftoiiiiJenco ho boldly declared, r saying: "The war between the North and th South for the past two years has made a revolution. It has substituted in the South another government for the Unijn. This is the fact, and the fact in such a matter is the important thing. No tech lic ility in a question of thin kind can stand. The war has utterly diso!ved the connection be tween the North and th Sourh, and tenders tlmm separate and independ ent power in the world." Mr. Conway concludes by announc ing that, the true policy of the North U to terminate the war at once, and he urges both houses of Congress to 1nnt thA fnllnwin? resolutions: Resolved by the Senate and House of jtieprescntacivcs, inai mo acouhv be, and he is hereby requested to issue a general order to all commanders of forces in the several military depart ments of the United States tc discon tinue offensive operations against the nemy and to act for the future entire ly bit the defensive. 4 Resolved, That the Execntive be, ' and he is further requested to enter , into negotiations with the authorities of the Confederate States with refe r ence to a cessation of hostilities, based on the following propositions: L Recognition of the independence of the Confederate States. 2. A uni form system of duties upon imports. 3. Free trade between the two States. 4. Free navigation of the Mississippi river. " 5. 1 Mutual adoption of the Munroe doctrine. J5 The Knoxvillo .Register states 'that the proceedings of the General ' Court Martial in the case of S. T. Har- 'rla, have been approved by Brig. Gon. iVIIeth, and are published.

Washington telegrams to the New York Kxprc-s says that it is reported that Seward has rejected the proposition, but the Washington Chron iclo denies that there has been any mieh indication from tho government, and adds that there is reason to doubt iloit. nnrtion of tho news, stating that the suspension of hostilities is included in tho terms.

The Southern Crisis of tho 11th inst. learns from a distinguished citizen of tho Northwest that tho States of Illi nois, Indiana and Ohio have determined to stop the war, and mako peace with tho Confederacy at all hazards. Their position is that war against tho Con tederato States shall cease, othcrwiso the Northwest will war against tho ag gressor. Soldiers are leaving tho Federal army by hundreds and regiments, and there is no authority to control this move ment. Of ono hundred and fitly thousand men under Giant and MeClellan, only forty thousand effective soldiers re. main, and the number is daily dimin ishing by mortality from sickness and voluntary abandonment. The Legislatures of Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky will convene at Frankfort in general convention on tho 18th inst., to agree upon the institution of a Northwestern Confederacy; to propose terms of peace and commerce with the Confederate States lor btates bordering on the Mississippi and its tributaries; proposing a treaty with tho South, or an adoption of tho Con federate States Constitution; to incor porato the now members into the Con federacy, if egreeablo to the pooplo of tho Confederate States; but in any event, relations of peace, amity and commerce with the South. Commissioners will boar the result to Richmond, to treat with tho Confod crate Government for a final and satis factory adjustment of all interests. This action will bo taken oponly, with serious, dignified determination. The terms of adjustment will bo sub mitted for ratification by tho pooplo of Ohio, Illinois and Indiana at the ballot box, and upon their ratification separa tion from the United States will bo irrevocably perfected. " This informant says ho expects no more goncral engagements, and by the 1st of April tho practical cessation of hostilities in tho Southwest ; by the 1st of Juno permanent peace, unles tho Republicans wage war against tho Northwest. -Ti Splendid Chewing Tobacco.
