The dispatches yesterday morning are barren of inter est From Cincinnati, we hear that the Great Sanitary Fair is a success; that the Governor and Legislature of Ken tucky have asked the President to post pone the draft in that State until the en rollment papers can be corrected; that delegates from Frankfort have left to at tend a conservative convention in Phila delphia, and some statements made by Gen. Kimball, at Indianapolis, the sub stance of which appeared in the Evans Tille Journal a week ago From Washington, we have the usual twaddle about Democratic caucuses, operations of guerrillas, letters from distinguished officers, and statements of reliable men. The Army of the Potomac is reported quiet, sundry former lies are branded, and new hopes are aroused that arrange ment will be made for the exchange of prisoners. The Peace Party. In the Journal, of yesterday, we laid before our readers what we believe will be the platform of the Democratic party next year. The State Sentinel confirms our opinion, by bitterly denouncing the Union men who voted to lay Wood's pro posal for peace on the table. It says, in thns voting, " they have voted that they don't want the Union restored they don't want equity they don't want fra ternity they don't want equality and they don't want the Constitution; there fore, they do desire disunion, injustice, fraternal hate, inequality and no Consti tution." It may not be amiss, in this connection, to refer again to the propo sition presented to the House of Repre sentatives by Fernando Wood, to see how much justice there is in the Sentinel's charges. We copy the resolution again, omitting the preamble : Resolved, that the President be re quested to appoint three Commissioners who shall be empowered to open negotia tions wnu uie auiDormes at JKicnmond, to the end that this bloody, destructive and inhuman war shall cease, and the Union be restored upon terms of equity, fraternity aud equality, under the Con stitution. The Union members did not vote against restoring the Union, but against the manner of restoring it proposed. They believed it to be impracticable and mischievous. They were not willing to sue for peace at the feet of Jeff. Davis. They were not willing to appoint Com missioners for so humiliating a duty. They prefer seeking peace after the man ner of Generals Grant and Banks is the province of rebels to sue for par don and peace. It is the duty of the Government, through the Administration, to enforce the laws. When those laws cease to be violated there will be peace. The riot act has once been read. When the rebels want the Union restored they will lay down their arms and ask for mercy. To entreat them to do so before they manifest any signs of repentance, is patting to shame the brave men who compose our armies, by virtually acknowl- dence as to the position the Democracy will occupy in the next Preidential race. Mr. Edgerton, of this State, recently in troduced into the House of Representa tives a Preamble and Resolution, which was supported by the united strength of the Democrats in the House. The Pre amble sets foith thai the various Procla mations of the President have had a ten dency to re-invigorate the otherwise de clining insurrection in the South, and to prolong the war; and that the House re gards, with anxietj, the extraordinary claims and assumptions of the President in the said Proclamations; and then re solves as follows: "Resolved, As the judgment of this House, that the maintenance inviolate of the constitutional powers of Congress and the rights of the States, and espe cially the right of each State to order and control its judgment exclusively, as es seutial to the balance of power on which the perfection and endurance of our po litical fabric of the Federal Union de pends; and we denounce, as among the gravest of crimes, the invasion or occu pation by an armed force, of any State, under the pretext or the purpose of co erring the people thereof to modify or abrogate any of their laws or domestic institutions that are consistent with the Constitution of the United States; and we affirm the principles declared in this resolution to be a law alike to the Presi dent and to the people of the United States. The resolution is a little muddy as published in the Sentinel, from which paper we copy it Its ambiguity, how ever, renders it none the less acceptable as Democratic doctrine. The resolution embodies the old notion of State Rights as taught by Calhoun, yet was endorsed in the House of Representatives by the vote of every Democratic member. No State is to be "occupied by an armed force to compel the people thereof to modify or abrogate any laws or domestic institutions that are consistent with the Constitution of the United States." But who is to determine whether objectiona ble laws or institutions are consistent with the Constitution ? The States, or the general Government1 Here Mr. Edgerton's resolution is lamentably lame. Either construction can be giv en it, and that was what he intended when he offered it. It was the usual trick of a pettifogging politician. We say every Democratic member of the House endorsed this resolution. It, how ever, was voted down, as it should have been. Gen. Green Clay Smith, of Kentucky, also introduced a series of resolutions bearing on this question. The fir3t one reads as follows: " Resolved, That as our country, and the very existence of the best govern ment ever instituted among men, is im periled by the most immoral, causeless and wicked rebellion that the world has ever seen; and believing, as we do, that the only hope of saving this country and preserving the (iovernment is by tne power of the sword, we are for the most vigorous prosecution of the war, until the Constitution and laws shall be en- TnTte'd StaW'fflfa1, ;to'xnf.tr', t Up pose any armistice, or intervention or mediation, or proposition ot peace, trom any quarter, so long as there shall be Sound a rebel in arms against the gov ernment And we ignore all party names, lines and issues, and recognize but two parties in this war, viz. : patriots and traitors. Mr. Cravens of Indiana promptly mov ed to lay this resolution on the table. It didn't correspond with his ideas of De mocracy. Its patriotic ring grated harsh" ly on his ear. It was too positive, earn' est and emphatic. Like its author, it is easily understood and no two construe tions can be placed upon its meaning, Now, if the Democrats are in favor of vigorous prosecution of the war, this res olution, it seems to us, ought to hav I met their approval. If they are oppos ed to the war and are in favor of con- eluding peace upon such terras as the so called Confederacy is willing to concede of course they would vote aginst it Well how did.they vote ? Every Democratic mem ber of the House voted to lay the resolu tion on the table. They are not in favor of a " vigorous prosecution of the war until the Constitution and Laws shall be en forced and obeyed in all parts of the United States." They are not "oppos ed to any armistice or intervention or mediation or proposition for peace from any quarter so long as there shall be found a rebel in arms against the gov ernment" In other words, they are for peace at any price at any sacrifice though it be at the expense of the honor, dignity, and perpetuity of the Govern ment. The platform upon which Mr. Val- landigham was run for Governor of Ohio is less exceptionable than these principles Democratic Congressmen are sustaining by their votes. Thus,we see that the positions assumed, and the leaders that are chosen, by Democratic Congressmen indicate that the controversy next year will hinge upon the abandonment or prosecution o the war. How shall we obtain peace, is the great and absorbing question. By accepting such terms as the rebels may offer, say the Democracy. By compell ing them to submit to the Constitution and the laws, say the Union men. Which is the better course, remains for future discussions.

The Caucus of the Democratic members of Congress to-night transacted no important busi ness. Gen. Anger made a trip to-day on the railroad as far as Bull Run for the pur pose of inspecting the roads and provid ing against raids of the enemy. The bridges were found to be in good condi tion and measures have been adopted which will doubtless prevent another de scent upon the line within this depart ment. Guerrillas and small squads of rebel cavalry still infest the country beyond Manasses, and depredations on Govern ment property between that potut and the Kappa ban nock are frequent.

Headquarters Army of the Potomac, ) ? 3 December 21, 1863. J ? At the present time the Army of the Potomac is in the same position it has been since it recrossed the Rapidan. An order to move to better quarters is expected, especially as the roads, which a few days ago were rendered almost im passable are now frozen hard. As far as we can judge, the rebels have not changed their position. Our men have made for themselves most comfortable quarters impervious to the frost and snow. It was stated in the dispatch of Saturday that the rebel cavalry destroy ed two bridges over Bull Ron. This is not exactly so. They appeared in some force, attacked our guards and set fire to one of the bridges, but the fire was extinguished, and the rebels left without doing any material damage. Washington, Dec. 21. Arrangements by which all matters connected with the exchange of prisoners have been turned over to Major General Butler, and will be permanent Gen. Meredith, who has hitherto been conducting the exchange, will report to him. The flag of truce boat was to leave Point Lookout to-day for City Point with 1,000 rebel prisoners. The secessionists of Baltimore, who still have direct communication with the South, profess to have information that Lee's army is to winter at or near Han over, Va. The troops there have already commenced constructing winter quarters. o o Hi in S 3 to n a. s a 1 o I S CO s Q 0 8 0 ef 0 a o o IS LYON. FRUITS AND HUTU 50boxe Laiur Hiisnne; 50 M.
