The Union men in the various election districts of the north of the county should take measures to obtain a full and timely jupply of the article. The Situation. -'Atlanta is taken l" Although no strictly official news to this effect has yet been promulgated, there seems to be no good reason to doubt the general announcement. , The occupation of the great rebel strong hold was the result of a scries of battles fought on Wednesday and Friday of last week, therein the rebels, they being the attacking party, were disastrously repulsed. Not less than 7,000 of their army could have been placed hors de combat in the. fighf, while our loss was inconsiderable. A most stubborn resistance was made to oar advance, but this was no barrier to the valor and impetuosity of our troops. . Atlanta was the golden apple to the pos session of whrch. their every effort had been directed for months through the providence of God it was plucked. Atlanta was the depot for a vast amount cf rebel property, including many millions dollars worth of cotton. It was made the storehouse of the Confederacy, because it . was deemed the safest place in the Confederacy, and the very last to fall. This fact. shows how grcut is the prize gained. It is also the centre of the whole Southern system " of railroads; and its oc cupation by Sherman severs the Confeder acy again in twain. A month ago the Atlanta Appeal warned the peoglo of Georgia that if they permitted Atlanta to fall into Yankee hands, they would be able to cut off all connection of Richmond with the States below, to take Charleston, Savannah and Mobile in tho rear, and in fact restrict the Confederate armies to Virginia and North Carolina. They held it to be o? vital importance that Atlanta 6hould be defended. But they have been forced to abandon the vital point, and the consequences predicted are sure" to follow in due time. ' Atlanta has not inaptly been denomin ated "the great back-door of the Confed eracy.' Richmond is the front-door. With the back-door closed forever against them, and the key of the iront-door in possession of Grant, things look very much Hke as if the rebels will all soon be come close prisoners insido their own possessions, or elsebe incontinently kicked out of both "house and home." "From the Army of the Potomac, the Bews is meager. A dispatch from Peters burg informs us that Grant is confident of success that he says he will as surely take Riehmond as he took Yicksburg last EuaimcV Let the people only trust in him, and tender hira their most vigorous cupport, and all will come out right. '-The sties to us are bright to trie rebels dark and gloomy. Every indica tion betokens a speedy close of the war through the utter and irremediable crush ing, of the rebellion. Perhaps therein may be found the secret of the recent appearance' at' the "Clifton House" of Moma. Ilclconibe, Clay & Co. ! The Peae Conference Mr. Lincoln's Manifesto "Indig nation" and "Surprise" of tlie Rebel Emissaries Tliereat. Concering the Peace Propositions, the discussion of which has agitated the country from centre to circumference the last few days, Hon. Horace Greeley, of the New York Tribune, writes : "The telegraphic stories concerning Peace con ferences at Niagara Falls have a slender foundation in fact, but most of the details are very wide of the truth. The Editor of this paper has taken part in and been privy to no further or other negotiations than were fully authorized, and more than authorized, but these related solely to bringing the antagonists face to face in amicable rather than belligerent atti tude, with a view to the initiation of an earnest effort for Peace, to be prosecu ted at Washington. The movement has had no immediate success. "Of course, all reportB that the writer has been engaged in proposing, or receiv ing, or discussing, hypothetical terms or DasS of Peace, whether with accredited ascnts of the Richmond authorities or others, are utterly mistaken. lie has never had the slighthest authorization to do anything of the eort; and he is quite aware of those provisions of law which relate to volunteer negotiators with pub-J lie enemies. Those provisions he hear tily approves, and is nowise inclined to violate. "More than this he docs not as yet feel at liberty to state, though he soon may be. All that he can now add is his gen eral inference that the pacification of our country i3 neither so difficult nor so dis tant as seems to be generally supposed."

CurTOx'HorsE, Niagara Falls, 1 Thursday, July 21. Copy of original letter held by me to deliver to the Hon. Horace Greeley, and which duplicate I now furbish the Asso ciated Pre33. Wm. Cornell Jlwett. ! Niagara Falls, Clifton House, " July 21, 1864. f To the Hon. Horace Greeley Sir: The paper handed to Mr. Holcombe, on yesterday, in your presence, by Major Hay, A.. A. (jr., as an answer to the application in our note of the 18th inst., is couched in the following terms: "Executive Mansion, Washington, 1 "July 18, 18G4. uTo whom it may concern: "Any proposition which embraces tho restoration of peace, the integrity of the whole Uuion, and the abandonment of Slavery, and which comes by and with an authority that can control the armie? now at war against the United States,. will be received and considcrea by the Executive Government of the United States, and will be met by liberal terms on other substan tial and" collateral points, and the bearer or bearers thereof shall have safe conduct both ways. - , Arrauam Lincoln." The application to which we refer was the President of the United States to ten der us his safe conduct on the'hypothesis that we were "duly accredited from Rich mond as bearers of propositions looking to the establishment of -peace,' and desired a visit to Washington in the fulfillment of this mission. This asscrtiou, to which we then gave, and still do, entire credence, was accepted by. us as the' evidence' of an unexpected, but mosc gratifying change in the policy of the President, a change which we felt authorized to hope might terminate in the conclusion of a' peace mutually just, honorable and advantageous to the North and to the South, exacting no condition but that wo should be "duly accredited from liichmond as bearers of propositions looking to the establishment of peace." "Thus proffering basis for conference as comprehensive 03 wG could I. - desire, it seemed to us that the President opened a door which had previously been closed against the Confederate States for a full interchange of sentiments, free discus sion ot conflicting opinions, and untram meled effort to remove all causes of con troversy by liberal negotiations. We, in deed, could net claim the benefit of a safe conduct which had been extended to us in a character we had no right to assume and had never affected to possess ; but the uniform declarations of our Executive and Congress, and thrice repeated, and as often -repulsed attempts to open negotia tions, furnioh a sufficient pledge to us that this conciliatory manifestation on the part of the President of the United States would bo met by them in a temper of equal magnanimity. Wo had, therefore, no hesitation in declaring that if this cor respondence was communicated to the President of-the Confederate States, he would promptly embrace the opportunity presented for seeking a peaceful solution of this unhappy strife. We feel confident that you must share our profound regret that the spirit which dictated the first step toward peace had not continued to animate the councils of your President. Had the representatives of the two Governments mtt to consider this question, the most momentous ever submitted to. human statesmanship,-iu a temper of becoming moderation and equity, followed, as their deliberations would have been by the pray ers and benedictions of every patriot and Christian on the habitable globe, who is there so bold as to pronouce that tho frightful waste of individual happiness and public prosperity which is daily sad dening the universal heart, might not have been terminated, or if the desolation and carnage of war must still be endured through weary years of blood and suffering,- tbt there might not at least have been infused into its conduct something more bf th spirit which softeu3 and par tially redeems its brutalities. Instead of the safo conduct which we solicited, and which your first letter gave us evjry reason to suppose would be ex tended for the purpose of initiating a ne gotiation, in which neither Government would compromise its rights or its dignity, a document has been presented which prot'okes as much indignation as surprise. It bears no feature of resemblance to that which was originally offered, and is unlike any paper which ever 'befora emanated from the constitutional Executive of a free people. Addressed "to whom it may con- cern, it precludes negotiation ana pre scribes in advance the terms and. condi tions of peace. It returns to the original policy of "no 4argaining, no negotiations, no truceswith llebels except to bury their dead, until every man shall have laid down his arms, submitted to the Government, arid sued for mercy Whatever may be the explanation of this sudden and entire change in the views of the President, of this rude withdrawal of a courteous overture for pegotiation at the moment it was likely to be, accepted, of this emphatic recall of words of peace just uttered, and ircsh blasts of war to the bitter end, we leave for the speculation of those who have the means or inclinations to penetrate the mysteries of his Cabinet, or fathom die caprice of his imperial will. It is enough for us to say that we have no use whatever for the paper which has been placed in our hands. We could not transmit it to the Presi dent ofthe Confederate States without offering him an indignity, dishonoring ourselves, and incurring the well-merited scorn of our countrymen. While an ardent desire for peace pervades the people of the Confederate States, we rejoice to believe that there are few, if any, among them who would purchase it at the expense of liberty, honor, and self respect. If it can be secured only by their submission to terms of conquest, the generation i3 yet unborn which will witness itn restitution. If there be any military autocrat in the North who is entitled to proffer the condi tions of this manifesto, there is none in the South authorized to entertain them. Those who control our armies are the servants of the people not their masters ; and they have no mor inclination, than they have the rit, to subvert the social institutions of the sovereign States, to overthrow their established constitutions, and to barter away their priceless heritage of self-govern nicnL This correspondence will not, however, we trust, prove wholly barren of good result. If there is any citizen of the Confeder ate States who has clung to a hope that peace was possible with this Administra tion of the Federal Government, it will strip from his eyes the last film of such delusion; "or if there be any whose hearts have grown faint under the suffering and agony of this bloody struggle, it will in spire them with Iresh energy to endure and brave whatever may yet be requisite to preserve to themselves and their child ren all that gives dignity and value to life or hope and consolation to death. And if there be any patriots or christians in your land who shrink appalled from the illimitable virtue of private misery and public calamity which stretches before them, we pray that in their bosoms' n resolution may be quickened to recall the abused' authority and vindicate the out raged civilization of their county.

' Sir: We are in receipt of your noto admonishing us of the departure of the Hon.

"We avail ourselves of this offer to in close a letter to Mr. Greeley, which you will oblige us by delivering.

C. Clay, jr. James I. Holcombe. m m Jeff Davis speaks lor Himself. There lately went to liichmond, in a rather curious way, Col. Jaques and Mr. Gilmore (otherwise "Edmund Kirkc,") to have a talk with Jell Davis. It was going to the head fountain to talk about peace, and the resultof the interview capitally illustrated the Niagara Falls conference. Concerning Jeff Davis views, Mr. Gil more, in a letter to the Dosiou Transcript, says: : "Jefferson Davis said to me last Sunday, (and with all his faults I believe him ji man of truth :) 'This war mas', go on till the last of this generation falls-in his tracks, and his children seize hismus- ket and faght our battle, m.less you ac Kuowjeuire uur nirm. iu ieji-irovernnieiu. We are not fighlingor slavery. Wc arc fighting fur independence,, and that or extermination we will have.'" Here we see how much sincerity there was in the professions of peace by the rebeb convened on the border.- It is not an uncharitable conclusion that what they wanted most was, to get to Piichmond. To accomplish this they undertook to pull the wool over the eyes of '-Old Abe.'.' Their success should teach theai a lesson. Jeff. Davis, speaking for himself, says he wants not and will not consent to peace that does' not acknowledge the indepen dence of the South. This currhf to be satisfactory so far as he is concerned. There is proot, however, thit he dues not speak for the Southern people. He knows that for him the arch traitor there can be no future.. " Not so with the. people, led at first, but now diivtu aud despairing -For them there is a standing oiler of par don. They have but to accept it to have their ardent desire for peace gratified. For Davis and his fellow conspirators, there is nothing possible but to figlit on there can be nothing worse thau peace; whereas, the people of the South realize that there can be no state, so bad as that under which they are groaning.; " .' It may be of no httle service to know that Davis is as unyielding as ever. The loyar people of the North have undertaken to put down the rebellion ot which he is the head. - Two-thirds of the territory it fir-t included has been wrested from it. Its armies have been continually beaten for ncarlv a year. All there is leftof'thc rebellion is represented by the armies of Lpe and that which Sherman has driven from nearly every stronghold iu the State of Georgia. The condition of the entire South is deplorable and really hopolcss. If at such a moment there exists not the disposition to yield, there of course is but one thing for theGovernment to do, which is, to make a finish by hard blows, and that, too, speedily. We perhaps ought to thank Jeff. Davis for giving us the Lest of all reasons for fillingthe ranks in response to the President's call. There is nothing else that we can ao, except to consent to the destruction of the Government, cbu-; t 'ess the superiority of the rebels, and sub mit to tho terms imposed by them. Val landigham and a few others may be pre pared for that, but not the people of , the North, who will go through xvith this'war as they ever do with what they under take. ' We commend the . testimony of Mr. Gilmore, touching Jeff. Davis' peaceful and lamb-like disposition, to tho Copper heads, who are continually denouncing the war. You see, gentlemen, what the alternative must be, it we do not fight the war to the eud, which is close at hand. Are you ready for that alternative? If yuu are, say so at once, like men and traitors, as you arel If you are not, then come out like patriots on the side of the Government:. At any rate, let us hear no more whininz about peace, unless you are piepareu to accept just such peace as Jeff Davis is willing to accord. ' i -m i' ' Tiie Boat Hack at Pittsburg. The champion Fcull-race between James 11am m 11 of PitUburg and Joshua Ward pf New burg, New York, for a purso of 1,000, took place on Tuesday afternoon, in the Mouongahela river. The event attracted a very largo number of people from the city and adjoining towns, and long before the hour of starting the banks' were liter ally lined with crowds as far as the eye could reach. The distance to be rowed was five miles. At a few minutes before four o'clock, a pistol was fired as the signal for the start,-and both men struck oars simultaneously. A better startcould not have been desired. In the first forty yards llamill gained fully a length, and seemed to gain steadily thereafter. As the men in their tiny boats pasted around the bend in the river, tho cheers of the multitude in the vicinity of the starting poiut were !oud and hearty. - llamill reached the buoy, made tho turn ahead of Ward, and upon the return gradually widened the gap between them. Looking through a glass, at the distance of about a mile and a half, it wa5-uu5cun to determine which was ahead, but n! they came closer, and could be eecn tho baked eye, llamill was discovered t be considerably in the advance. On th last quarter of a mile it was plainly J parent that llamill was "taking it qif" easy," while Ward seemed to be "pnli;n6 for his life." The story is soon told J! llamill continued to row quite leisure?" and reached the place of starting a Ien?th or two ahead of Ward, thus winni fh race quite easily. Time : forty raicutes and forty-six seconds. -When they landed both-appeared flushed, and.fatigund and after . a . f qw I amicable ; words exchanged with one another, they repaired to the contrary sides of the river.
