THE EVENING STAR THE LATE PEACE IUTE?.VIEW. A Circular fresa tbe Rebel State Depart ment. Mr. Benjamin, the rebel Secretary of Sute, has issued a circular ad?rested to Mr. Mason, th? ir commissioner in Europe, in relation to the recent peace mission of Mr. Oilmore and Colonel Jacques to Richmond. After detail ing the meare by which they reached Bte h - mond and the intervie?- he had with them bet?re introducing them to Jeff. Ilavis, Mr. Benjamin says: ??Tbe interview, connected with cue report previously made by Colonel Ou Id, left on my mind the decided impression tbat Mr Lincoln was averse to sending formal commissioners to open negotiations, lesi he might thereby be deemed to bave recognized the independence ol tbe Confederacy, and that he was anxious to learn whether the conditions on which alone he would be wiling to take such a step would he yielded by the Confederacy; that with this view he bad placed bis messengers in a condi tion to satisfy us tbat they really came from him, without committing himself to anything in the event of a disagreement to such condi tions as be considered to he indispensable. On informing tbe President, therefore, of my con clusions, he determined that no question of form or etiquette should be an obstacle to his receiv ing any overtures that promised however re motely, to result in putting an end to the car nage which marked the continuance of hostili ties. ??The President came to my office at .? o'clock m tb? evening, and Gol. Ould came a few moments later, with Messrs. Jacques and Gil more. The President said to them that he heard, from me, that they came as messengers of peace from Mr. Lincoln; that as such they were welcome, that the Confederacy had never rorceaied its desire for peace, and that he was ready to hear whatever they had to offer on that subject. "Mr Gilmore then addressed the President, and in a tew minutes bad conveyed the in formation that these gentlemen had the idea tbat this government would accept a peace on a basis of reconstruction of the Union, the abolit.onof slavery, and the grant of an amnes ty to tbe people of the States as repentantcrimi naie. In order to accomplish the abolition ot slavery, it was proposed that there should be a general vote of all the people of both federa tions, m mass, and the majority of the vote thus taken was to determine that as well as all other disputed questions. These were well stated to be Mr. Lincoln's views. Tue Presi dent answered tbat as these proposals had been prefaced by tbe remark that the people of the North were a majority, and that the majority ought to govern, tbe offer wan in effect, apro prjwtl that tbe Confederate States should sur render at discretion, admit that they bad been wrong from the beginning of the contest, sub mit to the mercies of their enemies, and avow themselves to be in need of pardon for their crimes; that extermination was preferable to dishonor. ?He stated that if they were themselves so unacquainted with the form of their own government as to make such propositions, Mr. Lincoln onght to have known, when giving them bis views, that it wa? out of tbe power of the |Confederate government to act on the sub ject of tbe domestic institutions ef the several States, each State having exclusive jurisdic tion on that point, -till less to commit the deci sion of such a question to the vote of a foreign people, that the separation of tbe States was an accomplished fact; hat he had no|authority to receive proposals for negotiation except by virtue of his office us President ot an indepen dent Confederacy: and on this basis alone must proposals be made to him. ??At one period of the conversation Mr. Gil more made use of some language referring to these States as ?'rebels.'' while rendering an account of Mr. Lincoln's views, and apolo gized for the word. The President desired htm to proceed, tbat no offence was taken, and that he wished Mr. Lincoln's language to be re peat? 1 to him as exactly as possible. Some further conversation took place, substanti? ally to tbe same effect as the foregoing, when the President rose to indicate that the interview wae at an end. Tbe two gentlemen were then recommitted to the charge of Colo nel Ould, and left Richmond the next day. ??Thie account ot tbe visit of Messrs. Gilmore and Jacques to Richmond has been rendered necessary by publications made by one or both of them since their return to the United States, notwithstanding the agreement that their visit was to be kept secret. They have perhaps concluded that as the promise of secre cy was made at their request, it was permis sible to disregard it. We have no reason for desiring to conceal what occurred, and have therefore no complaint to make of the publicity given to the fact of tbe visit. The extreme in accuracy of Mr.Gilraore's narrative willbe ap parent to you from the foregoing statement, ? You have no donbt seen in the Northern papers an account of another conference on the subject of peace, which took place in Canada, at abont the same date, between Messrs. OL C Clay snd J. P. Holcombe, Confederate citizens ot the highest character and position, and Mr. Horace Gre?ly, of New York, acting with au thority of President Lincoln. It is deemed not improper to intorni yon that Messrs. Clay and Holcombe. although enjoying in an eminent negree the confidence and esteem of the Presi dent, were strictly accurate in tbeir statement tbat tbey were without any authority from this governmentto treat with thatof the United States en any subject whatever. ?We had no knowledge of their conference with Mr. Oreely, nor of their proposed visitto Wasniugton, ?ill we .-aw tbe newspaper publi cation?. A significant confirmation of the troth of the statement of Messrs. Gilmore and Jacqnes, that tbey came as messengers from Sir. Lincoln, ie to be found in the fact that tbe -views cf Mr. Lincoln, as stated by them to the President, are in exact conformity with the offensive paper addressed to "Whom it may concern, wbivb was eent by Mr. Lincoln to Meesrs. Clay and Holcombe by the hands of ins private secretary, Mr. Hay, and which was properly regarded by those gentlemen as an intimation that Mr. Lincoln was nnwilling that this war should cease while in his power to continue hostilities. Sai pa??e.h - At a meeting of the Board of Health, tbe health officer, Dr. Jones, reported the case of a man named A. Meberten, residing on tbe corner of Navy and Tillary streets, who manufactures the bodies of dead animals, snch as horses, Ac, into sausage meat, and pre pared the entrails for sausage cases. The place was indicted as a nuisance, and the enter prising German who prepares the horrible food was ordered to be arrested? ?. Y Com. Advertiser. ?7*Lincoln, Maes., is death on pickles.

One man, from two and a half acres, has gathered at two pickings 1)7,01)0 pickles; aaotner gathered from bis live acres, at one picking, so.000. This was regarded as an extraordinary yield. Another man has realized from his ten acres planted with cucumbers, in one season, 81,200. ?*t- The Louisville Press understands that the Hon. Je'se D.

Persons of sedentary habits troubled with weak ne s, lassitude, palpitation of the heart, lack o appetite, distress after eating, torpid liver, con stipation, Ac, deserve to suffer if tbey will not try the celebrated PLANTATION BITTERS, which are now recommended by the highest medi cal authorities, and warranted to produee an im mediate beneficial effect. They are exceedingly agreeable, perfectly pore, and must supercedeall othertonice where a healthy, gentle stimulant ?? required. They purify, strengten and invigorate. They create a healthy appetite. They are an antidote to a change of water and diet. They overcome effects of dissipation and late hours. They strengthen the system and enliven the mind. They prevent miasmatic and intermittent f? vers They purify the breath and acidity of the stomach. They cure Dyspepsia and Constipation, They eure Diarrhea, Cholera, and Cholera Morbus. They cure Liver Complaint and Nervous Head ache. They make the weak strong, the languid bri I iaut, and are exhausted nature's great restorer. Tbey are composed of the celebrated Calisaya hark, winter green, sassafras, roots and herbs, all preserved in perfectly pure St. Croix rum. For particulars, see circulars and testimonials around each bottle. Beware of imposter?. Examine every bottle. See that it has D. 8. Barnes' signature on our pri vate U. S. Stamp over the cork, with plantation scene, and our firm signature on a fine steel plate ngraving on side label. Bee that our bottle is net refilled with spurious and deleterious etuff. We defy sny person to match the taste or character of eur goods. Any person pretending to Bell Plantation Bitters by the gallon or in bulk, is an imposten We sell only in our log cabin bottle. Any person imitating this bottle, or Belling any other material therein, whether called Plantation Bittere or not, is a criminal under the U. S. Law, and will be bo prosecuted by ue. We already have our eye on two parties re-filling our bottles, Ac, who will succeed in getting themselves into close quarters, The demand for Drake's Plantation Bitters from ladies, clergymen, merchants, Ac, is perfectly incredible The simple trial of a bettle is the evidence we pre sent of their worth and superiority. They are sold by all respeetable druggists, grocers, physicians, hotels, saloons, steamboats and country stores. P. H. DRAKE A CO., aug2 eoJra ?02 BROADWAY, N. Y. '( A RTILLERY HORSES WANTED AT ONCE.
