An Abolitionist for Peace.
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
Mr. Conway in his speech announc
l himself as opposed to re-union.
'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,
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

a general order to all commanders of
forces in the several military depart
ments of the United States tc discon

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

'that the proceedings of the General
