On the 18th of April, the cab inet, consisting of Mr. Davis, Becretaries ucDjamm ana xirecunrtdge and Mai lory, Postmaster General Reagan, and the follow Ing.named officers belonging to the Presi dent'! staff. tIx: Col. John P. Wood. Col. Thos. L. Lubeck, (formerly Governor of Texas,) Col Wm. Preston Johnston, (son of uaa. afuoert oianay iionnstonand voloncl aUurton k. Harrison, (private aeoretary,) set outfromGreensboro on horseback, to seek a place of neater safotv further Booth. Two divisions of cavalry, commanded by Generals veom. ana jrergason, were aetacbed from Wheeler's corps to protect and guard tha iroui ana rear ot me p.it.Dguisnea caraicaae. A Ionic watron train, contftlnlnr tha nr sonal baggage of the Cabinet, and the most valuable archives of thewaninggovernment, also composed part of the column. We rode leisurely along, from twenty to twenty.five muei a any, until we amvea at u oar lotto, N. 0., where we halted four or fire days, durlntr which time Geus. Johnston and Sher man were negotiating a treaty of peace, of wnicn iur. .uavia approved, ana said it was the only thing that could be done under the circumstances. Here Mr. Davis received a telegram from Gen. Breckinridge, who had remained be hind a few days with Johnston's army, an nouncing the assassination of President Lin coln, lie expressed his sincere regret at this sad occurrence, and said : "There Is no event that has happened since the com mencement of the war that I more deeply deplore than this lamentable assassination. First, became murders, such aa this, never benefit any oause. but are calculated to In jury j seoond, the Confederate government wiu ne censurea tor complicity ana partici pation in this horrible tragedy, third, la ease the Confederate government Is finally over thrown, we could haro expected a greater leniency and more concessions fronflir. Lin coln than, ,1 fear, his successor will grant us." I mention this declaration or Mr. Davis In order to show that the assertions made by his enemies, that he knew of the conspiracy against tha Ufa of Lincoln, and encouraged it, were malignant ana wmiat falsehoods. So soon as President Johnson refused to approve the treaty authorised by Mr. Lincoln, and agreed upon by Generals Johnston and Bherman, the Cabinet set out on their Journey southward with all possible speed. Kllpatrlck's cavalry was olose upon our rear, and the commands of Debrill and For Kuson were greatly demoralised. We finally reached Abbeville, S. 0., on the 1st day of Aiay, ana nere tne jceaorai eavairy were out a few miles distant from the town. I re ceived orders to get ray command tn readl nets to march on the 1st at 10 p. m , and fall In the- rear of the cabinet. I was also in structed not to tell who we were, or whither we were going, to suoh persons aa might in quire. Before this time Mr Davis or his at taches did not attempt to disguise or conceal who they wero, but this waa a dark and try ing hour, and discretion was then the better part of valor. On the ever-memorable night we rode forty-two miles, and the next morn ing, after orosslng the Savannah river on a pontoon bridge, we entered the town of Washington, Georgia During the latter part of the night Mr. Davis rode la an ambulance He had two excellent horses, Is a splendid and graoeful rider, and stood the trip remarkably well. Mr. Benjamin, on aeoount of his corpulency, seemed to be greatly Jaded and fatigued after a long ride. On the morning of May 4, six days before his capture, hearing that he had determined to dispense with the cavalry force along with him, I went to bid him fare well lie said. "I expected to cut my way througU to a place of safety with the two divisions of cavalry along with me, but they have become so much demoralised by the re ports of stragglers and deserters from John- ston'l array mat i can nq longer roiy ujjuu them la oase we should enoounter the enemy I have, therefore, determined to disband them, and try to make my escape, as a small body of men can elude the vigilance of the enemy eailer than a large number They will make every endeavor tn their power to capture me, and It behooves us to face these dangers as men. We will go to Miii.ai.Dt)!. and there rally on Forrest, If he la la a state of organisation, and It U to be hoDfldthatha 1st if not. w will crois the Mississippi rlrer and Join Ktrbj Smith, and mere vro can Carry on tap vf warn. JANUARY 15, 1800. Meet me south of the Chattahoochee,, as this department has been surrendered without my knowledge or content." He seemed to be much depressed by the cares that weighed upon his mind, but was still hopeful to the The Mexican Question. The following Is the text of Mr Seward's final letter to Count Mottuolom, on the French-Mexican question: MB. SXW1ED TO TUB UARgClR DE HOKTIIOLOIT. Ulnar ikt or BriTB, ( WiaainuTOff, December 8, W3 Sir: Uavlng made known to the President the Emperor's views on Mexican affairs which you communicated to me on the 29 lh ultimo, I have now the honor to Inform you of the disposition of this Government In regard to the same subject. It seems proper, however, for me to say, In the first place, that what I have to communicate has been already fully made known to Mr. BIgelow, with authority, la his discretion, to Impart tne same to Mr. Drouyn de 1'JIuys. The effect of the Emperor's suggestions when they are reduced to a practical shape seems to be this: that France is willing to retire from Mexico as toon as she may, but that It would be Inconvenient for her without first reoetrlng from the United States an as surance of a friendly or tolerant disposition to the Power which has assumed to Itself an Imperial form In the capital city of Mexico. The President Is irratlfied with the assurance you hare thus given of the Emperor's good disposition. I regret, however, to be obliged to say mat tne condition tbe rnperor sag' (rests is one which seems oulte ImDraotlaible. It Is true, Indeed, that the presence of toreign armies in an adjacent country, eould not, under any circumstanoes, but cause un easiness and anxiety on the part of this Gov ernment. It creates for us exDensai which are Inconvenient, not to speak of dangers of collision, nevertneieis, i cannot nut lnrer from the tenor of your communication, that the principal cause of the discontent prevail ing In the United States in regard to Mexico Is not fully apprehended by tbe Emperor's Government. The chief oause is not that there Is a foreign army In Mexico, much less does that discontent arlie from the circum stances that that foreign army Is a French one We recotrnlte the rieht of soverelmi nations to carry on war with each other if they do not Invade our right or menace our safety or Just Influence. The real cauie of our national discontent Is, that the French army which is now In Mexleo la invading a domeitlo republican government there which waa established by her people, and with whom the United States sympathise most proionnuiy, ror we avowed purpose or sup pressing It and establishing npon Its ruins a foreign monarchical government, whose presence there, so long as It should endure, could not but be regarded by tbe people of the United States as Injurious and menacing to their own chosen and endeared republican Instigations. I admit that the United States do not feel themselves called upon to make a war of propagandlsm throughout the world, or even on ibis continent, in tne republican cause. We have sufficient faith in the eventual suc cess of that cause on this continent, throusrh the operation of existing material and moral causes, to Induce us to acquiesce in the con dition of things which we found existing nere, wmie our own repubuowas receiving Its shape and development. On the other hand, we have constantly maintained, and still feel bound to maintain, that the people of every State on the American oontlnent hare a right to secure for themselves a re publican government If they choose, and that interference oy foreign Mates to prevent the enjoyment of such Institutions deliberately eitabllshed Is wrongful, and In Its eflesU an. tatronlstlcal to the free and popular form of government existing In the United States. We should think It wrong as well as unwise, on the part of tbe United States, to attempt to subvert by force monarchical governments In Europe for tbe purpoeo of replacing them with republican Institutions. It seems to us equally objectionable that European States should forcibly Intervene la States slruated on this continent to overthrow republican institutions, and replace them with mon archies or empires. Having thus frankly stated our position, I leave the question for the consideration of France, sincerely hoping that that great nation may find it compatible with Its best Interests and Its high honor to withdraw from Its aggres sive attitude In Mexico, within some conve nient and reasonable time, and thus leave tbe people of that country to tbe free enlov- meqt of the system of republican government which they hare established for themselves, and of tbeir adberence to wnton tney nave given what seems to the United States to be decisive and conclusive, as well as very touching, proofs. I am, sir, the more In clined to hope for such a solution of the diffi culty for tbe reason that when, at aay time within the last four years, the questloa has been asked of any American statesman, or even of any American citizen, what country la Europe was the one which was least likely to experience an alienation of the friendship of the United States, the answer was prompt ly given, France. Friendship with France has always been deemed Important and pecu liarly agreeable by the American people. Every American cltlsen deems it no less im portant and desirable for the future than for tbe past. The President will be pleated to be In formed of the reception which the Emperor gives to the suggestions which I have now made. Accept, sir, the renewed assurances of my very high consideration. WILLIAM ll. (SEWARD. Faces on aa Battle Field. The celebrated report of Dr. Chenu on the mortality caused by war, contains some In te reiving information concerning the appear ances presented by some who die a violent death on the field of battle. One surgeon sajs that, wandering over the battle-field of the Alma, on the third day after the flght.he observed with astonishment a number of Russian corpses whose attitude and expres sion of countenance were precisely those of life Some did certainly present an aspeot which showed that they had suffered se ver elyluit previous to dissolution, but these were lew in number compared with those who wore a calm and resigned expression, as though tbey had passed away In the act of prayer. Others had a smile on their faoes, and looked as If they wore In the act of speaking, one in particular attracted his special atten tion, he was ljlng Prtly on his side, his knees were bent under him: his hands were clasped together and pointing upward; his head was thrown back, and he was apparent ly still praying evidently he was In the act of doing so at the moment when death laid his hand upon Mm Another medical man relates tnat alter tne battle or Inkermann tbe faoes of many of the dead still wore a smllej while others had a threatening expression come lay sireicneu on tneir backs as If rrlendly bands bad Prepared tbem for burial Some were still resting on one knee, their hands grasping their muskets.

Peanut Culture In Worth Carolina, For years past the ground-pea has been at most Important element of commerce In the Cape Fear countrythe annual exportation to tbe Northern States and Canu.LA.MnM-.. ably exceeding 100.000 bushels. A single planter lo one of our eastern counties ob tained from It a yearly Income ot $6,000. He raised from fifty to seventy. five bushels to the acre, and cultivated fire acres to the hand, which at $1 a bushel the ordinary price, though $1.25 waa frequently realised yielded an Income of $250 to $300 to the hand. No such result under the old system of labor, could be obtained with staples on similar soils. Our cotton planters contented themselves with, a crop yielding from $12 to $15 per acre, and it was the summing up on a large surface that gave a living result. The cultivation of no crop Is so easy, and on ly the simplest Implements are required first the plow to break the land, and then limply the sweep and weeding hoes. Tbe Tera.fr,e crop, as we nave Deupsusutiea. is iromoui0 7dbusbeis to the acre, besides which there will be left In the srround enoorh to fatten 100 pounds of pork.

During the war Just olosed, this oil was universally used In our machine shops, and Us lubrlcatory properties are pronounced by competent authority, to be superior to those of whale oil, for the reas on that it does not gum at all.

Hanscom. late Naval Con structor at the Philadelphia navy-yard, has resigned, and Immediately upon the recep tion of the notification of the acceptance of nis resignation, neieit tne navy.yara ana proceeded to Boston. Mr. Hanscom is a native of the State of Maine, and waa ap pointed Naval Constructor en the 15th of October, 1853. lie has since served his coun try with great zeal and fidelity, and has modeled and launched some of the finest vessels In our navy, among which we may mention the screw frigate Ammonoosus. of 9,213 tons, screw sloop Canandalgua, 1,395 tons, screw frigate Franklin, 3,171 tons; Qenesoo. 803 tone.

Many hare supposed that Mr. Ericsson planned the two-turretted monitors of the Monadnoek class, but this Is an error. They were planned by the naral constructors who built them, and thus far the Monadnoek has proved to be the best and fastest turretted vessel afloat. Mr. Hanscom has built about thirty vessels since he has been a naval con structor, all of which have rendered excel lent service. He will probably go into tbe shipbuilding business on his own account, either at New York or Boston. Whether he resigned for this purpose, or to gratify some official clique at Washington, is not known, but It ts certain that this branch of our na val service has lost a good man and a valua ble mechanic. iV. i.
