'> K ,7? .. \'at "lo Tenneaeee, Mia Irl iVs, ? 14 oiui*," and that "?lserLere their claims would toe based upoa tbe principle of tbe tUi jiosside tia" (what tbey actually posses). Then, as an m?wer to all this, thin Richmond diplomat tells us that "the government or tbe Confederate State* can make no such treaty;" that "it can not cede any territory belonging to any or these States, eacb of which in a nation ? a sove reignty as distinct an Crest Britain or France;" that tbe only peace it can make is that of "the complete independence and iufeegrity of all tbe Stated" ? tbat is, all tbe States claimed by the rebellion, including West Virginia, Kentucky and Missouri. The only terms, then, npon which Jeff". Davis can maki peace are the surrender to liis con federacy, not only of all the territories, sea ports and strongholds we have recovered by force of arms, but the surrender of West Vir j-In'a, Kentucky und Missouri, States which have adhered to the Unioo and expelled the approuohes of the Davis "confederacy" in every shape and form, by legiblation and by arms, from the beginning. And it seems that Davis has no alternative. He has not, nor has he ar.d his Confederate Congress together, the p^wer lo cede away an inch of tbe soil of any one of the rebel Confederate States? each >?elnp a nnt'on In fteolf, of sovereign and Inde rendent as Great Hritain ot Franco. This is the supreme Ihw to Davis of the constitution of the so-called Confederate States. Accordingly, so far us the rebel general gov ernment is concerned, a treaty of peace short ot Southern subjugation or Southern independ ence Is out of the question; because the indi vidual ^tutoR of ttint extraordinary confede racy arc sovereign nations, and each must act for itself in determining where it is to go, or what is to be done with its "sacred soil." Upon this bint wo have a new suggestion to throw out to President Lincoln. The right of secession, npon which this rebellion was started, is, under Jeff. Davis, retained to enoh of the States concerned as ti constitutional right. These Southern rebels and their Northern sympathizers are great, sticklers for constitutional rights. Let them be brought to a practical test npon this diabolical, but, as they hold it, divine, right of sece sion, or Stste supremacy. Prac tically, we know that Jeff. Davis is the abso lute despot of the tebelilous States; but hring *?:? .lnwn to a constitutional test., and it seem* We respectfully and earnestly submit, there fore. to President Lincoln a new departure in behalf ot peace. Let him proceed to action with the rebellious States in detail, as with so many independent nations, and let him thus begin a new peace movement with North Caro 1'na. A majority of the Legislature of that State just elected is said to be in favor or peaoe and reunion. Let President Linfoln, then, send down to Governor Vance liberal offers of peace for North Carolina on the con dition of ber return to lho Union? offers si inviting that ber Legislature will jump at them; and let tbese offers embrace the request that Governor Vance will immediately call his L'>g slature together to consider these peace propositions; and, considering the present com manding position of General Grant, between Richmond and North Carolina, the most glo- < I rlons results may be expected. North Carolina, we believe, can thus be de tached from the rebellion, and with this breach in Ihe Davis confederation bis sovereign State right ef secession will speedily finish him ?nd his moelt confederacy. General Grant's Campaign In VlrglaUi, The English papers, wbicb see everything in the light of a strong Southern sympathy, de clare that General Grant's campaign Is a fail ure. All the Richmond papers maketbe same declaration as a matter of course, end so do all tboBe Northern papers that reproduce feebly the I ?ent'ments of their Southern friends. All these declare alike loudly that the great campaign ) that ],f\8 shaken the rebellion to the centre is a failure. Tbore was never a more shameless piece o' audacity than this in the history ot im pudence. Grant's great campaign has been the mr?t successful of the war. Ue has driven L*e. with the finest army that the confederacy ever had, or ever will have, up and down and all over the State of Virginia; he drove him from the R .pidaa to Richmond and oompelied him to gp through that city as if for life to hold it* dependences ou the other side; and he has , ajrain driven the greater part of Lee's forces ontof Petersburg a :d Richmond, and down the Shenandoah vall"y. to look for something to eat Such failures as tbjs of Grant's are to re establish the supremacy of our government and pound the confederacy to pieces, and that Is what the Iriends of t!;c confederacy have to find fault with in General Grant. Seoeaslnn journalists in England, in the Southern State-, and m the Northern SMtes see that if Grant continues in bis present position but a few months louger the c.-ilederacy is done for Tb< y recognize in bim the great man of this war. He has shown in sucli instances as the ebeice of Sherman and Shc-'dan a great knowledge of men. He bas shown, u at Boi raont, that Le could take a small force into the field and hnudle it and 0ght with It splendidly, lie Las shown at Fort Henry, at Shiloh, at Vicksbwrg and at Chattanooga how ;nagilfl cently be oao handle one large army; and he h*s shown in the preaent year with what com; prohensive ability be can direct the operations or several armies spread over the largest theatre of w .r that was ever nnder one m*n And they know from tbeee evidences of fcls ability tbat, if the government supplies him with men, he will end the war beroro Novem ber. Tbi? is what distresses the soceaaion press, end induces it to cry out agai nit General Grant, in the va n hope that their clamor may affect tbe Northern people. Ismist Corrr.iuiKAns? OrraaiTiav to Mr. <Lrrikiui Col. pax. ? Tbe Ftateof Indiana appears tc ccntr.in a larger proport-oi ot unmitigated eecvjsion sympathizers thnn any other one of the profe-sedly loyal r't.;teN and it* Congressional delegation on the democratic aide of the Hoes* or Ke res motives, beaded by Mr. Voorhee-, v "'?'andigbam V lieutenant, is just such as mig'f hi ixj eti d from such a constituency. The endit o' tbe Stat* wus largely redeemed, 1-ow ? vrr, by having aitong Its representatives Mr. Schuyler Collix, whose rapacity, intellect ami 1 rliamentary knowledge elevated bim to the Speaker's chair, where his Impartiality in ad ministering the rules of the House was recog nized even by political enomlea. Mr. Colfsx bas beeii renominated for Congee* in the South Eer.i district, ti.d il was to be hoped that all p*r?:r(i would have concuried in the nomina tion. and given him a unanimous re-election But II seems that he is tltogethcr too loyal and ie?pe<-ttible a t enileman 'o unit til.* view-? ot l!.t Jeff. l>aiia lactiwu, which b;w cons "yut-.itlr trot ir ' i, ut rtiiP of own champions fa tbe per son oi Mr David Turpi? Of course we know nothing whatever about this Mr. Turj ie, except ttrnt be was defeated in tlie ooutest against Mr. Colfax at tbe l?at elec tion; but tbe Tact of bis being tbe nominee of a couvent'on where speeches were made in favor of au " immediate and unconditional peace," where our brave soldiers were dcclaied to be enpared In waging " an unholy war against our Southern brethren," where the effort to pre serve tbe nation from dissolution by traitors was stigmatised a* "a crusade against the liber* ties and dearest rights of our Southern breth ren" and as"an infamous contest," is sufficieit in itself to point bim out as an unfit person to occupy a seat on the floor of Congress, much legs to take the place of such a loyal and up right representative at Mr. Qolfax. The State of Indiana bas not much to boast of in the way of Congressional representatives, and we do hope that at least tbe voters of the South Beod district will be unwilling to make the matter worse by substituting Turpie for Colfax Lorn I Politic*? The Position of Tani many lixil. At a meeting bold last evening Tammany Hall adopted the preambles aid resolutions, which wfil be found in another column, recom mending the Chicago Convention to nominate General McClellan Cor the Presidency.: The resolutions were unanimously and enthusiasti cally approved, and they show that old Turn mar.y still stands firm upon the war platform, and will not allow herself to be ruled oil' of Undemocratic party because the peace men succeeded in disgusting hor with the State con vention. OuUide of New York city the Mo 7,irters, ami the Young Goons, and the Mc "Keonitos are never heard of. and Tammany Hall i? the only really well known local organi zition. Her leaders, by ? shrewd manoeuvre, have taken advuutage of this fact, and hence these resolutions. If Tammany Hall will steadily pursue the independent course into which she bas now been forcerl by a combination of circumstances she will regain much of ber ancient profctige I,et her at once drop all affiliations with the Woods and the other peace men Let her send the Mr -Barters, and tbe Young Coons, and the Old Coons, and the McKeouita? for *' thmit, talcing the wind out of the sails of tbe rerorm party and the Citizen's Association and all such humbugs' Sue bag made a move in the right direction by this nomination of Mc Clellan. The city of New York is undoubt edly for McClellan by a large majority, and consequently Tammany will gain popularity bare tad respect everywhere by this bol?i and decided stroke. Using this popularity dexter ously, she can parry her whole tickct under the shadow of McClellan's name Her record mnco the beginning of this war gives her every advantage. Always io favor of an honorable peace, sbe has always patriotically supported the government in its straggle with treason. Now is her grand opportunity to make this word tell Both the people and the politi cians are tired of the miserable clashing, squabbling, bargaining and corruption of half a dozen contemptible local cliques, and would gladly hail the reform we urge Tammany to inaugurate A Good Movie.? We perceive that a move ment baa been made in Boston, in view of the 1 voluntary withdrawal of President Lincoln and i 1 General Fremont from the Presidential canvass, so that a new Presidential ticket may be set up. "M broad as the patriotism of tbe country and ita needs.** This !s a good more; and should Lincoln and Frement be thus induced to with draw- from tbe field.
