Finally they attacked the bill on the only vulnerable point for them?the tea and ooft'ee tax. Members had to vote for buncombe, for It would never do to make people in the back country pay extra for tea, aiid ladles must be taken care of. So a conference com mittee was secured. Even Mr Sherman kicked backbone, and voted against his party. Winter Davis was busy as a bee, and helped Mr. Sherman on the tariff all day. He Is seldom so active. TbeQtenatc will probably try another executive session tomorrow. THE PEACE CONFERENCE. Wahdi.ngto.v, Feb. 25, 1801. This lias beon a gloomy day in tho Peace Congress. ! Tho radical republicans, who are opposed to any settle ment, and v, ho bavo |?rsiHtcd in staving oCT voles upon all questions looking to adjustment, continued their oppo nit ion to-day, and from apr<eamnccs Intend to prevent a vote being bi n. The New Turk delegation, led by Dud ley KielJ, together with Mr. Chase of Ohio, and many of tho Now England dcl-gat^u*, succeedod in tholr move mentu in preventing a vow being taken, by offering all aorta of amendments, some twenty in number, to tho third soction of Mr. Guthrie's proposition. In nearly every instance they were votod down. The first recti on. which is Mr. Frank'in's substitute, remains as printed in to day's IIkhaid. The seciMid suction, which relate to tho acquisition of territory, ?fter being amended In many |?rtiouUrs, wa* passed over informally. Tboy then took up section thir l of Mr. Guthrie's plan, winch is as follows:? V itli.r the nm; tltution nor any amendment tlieriof filial! be construed to give Om^-rens power to r.viUto, abolish or control, w ithln any Mute or Territory of the rtilted States the relation established or rec/>(-uizod by tho taw- thereof touching per:;ons bound to labor or in voluntary nervsee therein, nor to interfere with or abolish lnv hmiary service in th Ki.trict of Colombia without tho cocs nt of Miu?y'and, and without tho consent of the owners, or making the owu- rs who do not consent just compeiis-titon, nor tho power to Interfere with or prohi'it lepie-eiitathes uttd Withers fr< m brine inp with tbcti to the city of Washington, retaining and taking aw:iv, ] '?!> >ns ro bouud to Ijib.ir, nor tho power to interl? re mith oi :i?x. . h Invol'inUiry service in p'aces under the ? xelusive iuris<lUtK? of the I nitod s'tate> v. ithin these ?StUj - and Territories wh<>re the ka'uo is established or reroguiy.t , u<.r the pcw<rto prohibit the removal or tran-pollution by lani,se.ior rivor, of persons held to labor or involuntary service in any Plate or Territory of the I nit. ? Slau any otiier State or Territory then?of where It Ik rstablirhed or reoognizod by law or usage, and the right during trans|iortatioii of touching at port!, shores and landings, and of landing in case of distress, shall exist; nor sha'l Congress havo power to authorise any higlnr ruU- of taxation on persons bound to labor than on land. Thorn were no less thaii twenty amendments offered to this, and nearly the whole day was occupied in discus sing and voting upon them. They were uniformly voted down, lhe only one adopted is in regard to slaves in tho | District of Columbia. They aro to bo brought here only i for service, and not for traffic. The debate which arose in reference to one of the amendments. Just before they adjourn*<1, was very angry and cxcitod. A motion was mado, Id order to avoid what seemed a general smash up, to take a rec<?s until eight o'clock, which was carried. The feeling Is very general among the friends of ad justment thit all bope of coming to a settlement is ended. Unless there is a complete backing down on the port of tbe republicans at the meeting to night, the Conference will break up In j row. They are now In session B-\t this hour, tenjo'clock, the Peace Conference If still In session, and matters look more hopeful. Many of the delegates from th'' North, who liave heretofore acted and vot- <?? against a fair adjustment, are making conciliated speeches. It Is difficult to tell what will be dorm. There Is a settle*! determination to sit It out to night Mr. Greeley has been very active all day In strengthen ing tho weak, and urging his friends not to concede one lota. Do is in constant communication with the ultra men, and Is doing bis utmost to prevent a settlement. Tho Peace Congress was still In session at eleven O'clock, and gTsat anxiety Is expressed as to the result of this long deliberation. ILu'TWOTIk, Feb. 2t>, lHfll. The following extract from a letter fromadistlnguisheJ Southern member of the Peace Conference lias been re ceived at the office ef tho Amtri'tin ? As a matter of opinion I can speak. Peace will be pre serve! and the Union bo restored. Vfe have reached the l>ottom of our troubles, and henceforth our fortunes will be brighter. The Conference has mot and overcome the Territorial difficulties In a mode satisfactory to all the slave States represented, and we entertain no d<mbt but that we slciil overcome all other difficulties and reach a result on all points In the controversy to the satisfaction of a largo majority, and probably clo-o our Lalxjra on Tuesday. I cannot be more explicit. OUR CLAIMS ON PERU. Washwutom, Fob. 2A, lMil, The 1'rostdcnt will communicate to the Senate to mor r.'W the correspondence between the United States and fern, In relation to the claims of oar citixcns against th ? latter government. Tho documents will not bo trans ml'.ted with a special message, as was anticipated at an '??rller period of the session, but will be given to the public without any comment or recommendation to Con grew as to the moans proper to bo taken for obtaining the redrtffl to which the sufferers arc so Justly entitled. The settlement of our questions with Peru will therefore devolve upon the Incoming administration, and it Is to l>o lioped th.it these claims will occupy the early atten t wn of the new Cabinet, and not be pormltted to lie over Indellnitely, to the gr^nt det-lment of tbe parties inte rested, who have already been kept too long in a state of oxpoctuiey. TTrnipt action to redress tho wrongs of r It hens of the 1'nlted States committed by foreign na tions is ipelnlly requisite In the present situation of af fairs in the Union, in order to prove to them that, what ever may be ourdlffbrencee at heme,the government has still the power and the will to protest its cltlseos and their Interest* abroad. WRh rsspoot to tbe correspondence Itself, wo understand that the documents contain many points that aro of gsnsrvl !nf rest as affw-.ting our commercial relations with *.?j; republics on the west coast of 9o*th | THE COMMISSIONER PROM MON'T^OtfERV.
