Sanders, of no particular domicil, who arei. vary pleaaant and romantic quarters st tLe Clifton Uouse. it is decidedly a more plea. ant place to live in during the summer mouths than either Richmond or Petersburg, especial ly since the indomitable Grant is circulating round la the vicinity of these cities. What would these gentlemen have our gov eminent do under all |he circumstances ? Dr they expect that the President of the Unitei Stales will so demean his office as to gir. the rebel* and traitors a bearing ? Do the) for one moment Imagine that oar governmen will make any propositions for peace to them, or to rebela in arms? These men are not au thorized by the to-called Confederate Govern meat to make overtures of peace to us, bn ore only “in the confidential employ of the ) government,” according to their own thorn to* They would be exceedingly rejoiced, no doubt, to be Introduced to our President, tee him kneel down and make offers ot peace: and still more rejoiced II they could be the bearer* of such offer* to Jeff. Davit and his rebel crew. But such a' degradation on th. part of our government these rebels will nev er have the pleasure of witnessing. The ag tation of this peace question is in the custody and nnder the special manage ment of Northern copperheads, directed and manipulated by Southern rebels. The dreg and profligates of the country are with tbh peace party, and all are under the dlrectioi and Influence of men who once held plac< and power and desire to do so again. Tin object of ih't movement at the present lime i> manifest, and lie who runt may read and un demand it. Vallandigbam’a hand is plain!) to be seen In It. These copperhead politiclai s believe the time is propitious for making such movements. Some political capital must b« laid up for the use of the coming Chicago Convention, for, according to present appear anecs, their stock in trade will be rather small and unavailable. If the Ciifion Douse coterie, aided b) northern copperheads, could succeed In mak ing the people lalieve the Washington Gov ernment had refused to listen to overtures 01 peace, or refused terms offered in good faith •ud on a reasonable basis, they would Inau gurate the first atep towards creating a feeling ot dissatisfaction with the administration on the part of the people, and thus would gait' something for the benefit of the traitor cause. But they will fail in this as signally as they did last year, by the agency of northern cop perheadi and the invocation of the mob spi lt In our large cities, to oppose any succeasi barrier to the Invincible power of Govern mental authority to crush out au Infernal re WHUWUt Ws are glad that President Lincoln has pet himself Just right in this matter. Recogniz ing noanthority of tbe Clifton House gentle men, he says, “to whom It may concern, ’ that peace may be had at any time by laying down rebel arms, submitting to constitutional au thority, and annihilating forever the cause 01 our present trouhlet. “On this line-’ onl\ will he fight out this question, and in so dt lug a patriotic people will never desert bin . We are fully aware that the rebels have no seen a time sluce they waged this war upoi tbe North when peace was so desirable t< them as it is now. But in order to obtain b they must first lay down tbeir arms and asi for It through proper and and legitimate chan nels. No conclave at the Clifton House, or unde> Table R zck, baa any power to make proposi Uous of peace, or any right to evject oui government will enter into diplomatic neg. - tiations with them. Tbe agitation on tin subject of peace at this time shows the weak nets of the rebels. Such agitations have oc curved before, and their object has been cieai It understood by tbe loyal people of thi North. There Is nothing strange or unnatural In the fact that cerlalu lickspittles of. Jeff Davis ar making inquiries shout the disposition of lb loyal States towards tbe rebels, and the term on which the Uulon might be restored. L they could only get an offer from our govern meut, however objectlouable that offer might be to Jeff. Davis, they would Imagine some thing had beeu gained to the rebel cause. Upon such an offer they could erect a plat form on which might be played some curious tricks of political jugglery. And Uiat the members of the Chicago Convention would act well their parts la such a play there can be no question. But they are destined to wait a long while before our government will condescend to sue for peace. When the leaders and master spirits of the said convention are engaged In the work of constructing a peace platform, we advise them to incorporate rise following man ifesto, which appeared in the Richmond En quirer not long ago, that the people may clearly see what grounds there are for hope of peace and our government be not disgrace ed in tbe eyes of all civilised nations of the earth. The manifesto embraced tbe following demands: Recognition by the enemy of tbe Independ ence of the Confederate Slates. Withdrawal of Vankee forces from every foot of Confederate grouud, Including Ken tucky ami Missouri. Withdrawal of YaDkee soldiers from Mary- 1 land until that Stc'rs shall decide, by a free I vote, whether she shall remain in the old Colon or ask admission Into the Confedera cy’ Consent on the part of the Federal govern- j ment to give up to the Confederacy its pro portion of the navy as It stood at the time of secession, or to pay for the same. Yielding up ail preten-ions on the part of the Federal government to that portion of the old Territories which lie west of the Confed erate States. An equitable settlement, on the basis of our absolute independence and equal rights, of all accounts of public debt and public lands, and the advantage* accruing from foreign treaties. These provisions, we apprehend, comprise the minimum of what we must require before we lay tlowu our arms. That is to say—the North must yield all, wc nothing. Question and Answer. “Does the Press mean to be understood as aasertingthat Mr. Vallandigliam, voted against the Critteuden resolution?—[Argus. The Press does mean to assert most em phatically, that Mr. Vallandighatn. though in his seat at the time, refused to vote for that porli >n of Mr. Crittenden's resolution which declared "that the present deplorable civil war “has beeu lorced upon the country by the “dlsuuionlsts of the Southern States, lu re volt against the constitutional Goveru “meut-” The Press would further assert that this declaration was voted for by every Republican member present, and It found only two Dem ntocrats who had the brazen-faced impudence lo vote against It, though several had the meanness to hold their tougues when their names were called—to decline speaking for the country at a juucture when it was em phatically true that those w ho were not for the couutry were against it. The Pies* said, aud now repeats, that it i not true that the deplorable civil wur w* waged”by us,or by the Government ot th United States. The civil war was waged l> the rebels; it was foreed upon us, and n have been compelled to accept and pruseeuU it to save the national integrity and nations life. This was the view taken by the Senate, where the word “waged" was stricken out ana the word “prosecuted’’ substituted. The reference of the Argus to “'soft heads’’ it io decidedly had taste,and must he genera !y understood to be a parallel to pot caiiiiq settle black. Sofi-hcadeduess is a quality m t ilways fully understood by those wbo bain ) he word as an epithet. Tue more some edi ors allude to such heads lu their column, th more wiil their readers’ attention be attracted to their own; therefore it is decidedly lie belt T policy to let such subjects pass m l silent io. Musical and Dramatic Gossip. A theatrical writer in the N. Y. Times says the gifts presented actors on ’heir beneli’ lights are never genuine. A mau iu that city >wns a watch he has lent to be “presented” ti i arly one hundred actors, "and only one ol hern," he says, “a confounded Irishman, hi d the 1 npudence to attempt to keep it.” Desiree Artot has reappeared at the kilim ipera in London, after four years absence, in tltechrracter of the Fiylia drl llfjginiento. o w ich she gave the most splen lid effect. Mare tick has engaged a cliotus from II - vana. His New York one struck too high a o e for his picket. It !• proposed to hold a billiard tournament in Hartford, Conn., In August, for the “Cham pion cue of Contec icnt.” A new dance called “LaDuches»e,” the in vention of a Pole, has been set agoing at the Theatre Dejazet, Paris. Saratoga is to have an opera house. Charlotte Cushman is said to he iu England “trying to push Mrs. Bowers.” The Davenport Brothers have gone to Eng land, under engagement of Harry Pa'rnor. Max Slrakosch is coucertiziug with .Brig toli, Susini, Mancusi, and Miss Phillips, in lauada. Liszt, the pianist and composer, writes to a Perth paper, contradicting the statement lha> >e is about to enter a convent. The celebrated Impresario, Lumley, firs’ -ngaged Jenny Lind to sing iu London, 1x40. lie called her the “coy songstress,” becaust ie had such hard work to make an engage cent with her. She was shy about visiting London. He gave her four thousand eight mndred pouuds for the season, reckoning from he 14ih of April to the 20!h of August, be .idee a house free of charge, a carriage and s ialr of horses to be at her disposal. He also gave her the privilege of cancelling her eu ;agemeut if, after her first appearauce on tin1 K>ards, and her success falling short of hei ■xpcctatlous, she felt inclined to quit, The world knows what her success was. Meyerbeer had more decorations of order of nobility, It is said, than any man living, not of royal blood; hut the N. II. Kegister suggests that as far as bis observations go, Meyerbeer wasn’t a circumstance, iu popularity, to Lar zer-beer. EaDlacbe, the great buffo, was a remarkable man. His style was as grand as bis person was large. “There were giants In the laud ii those days.” So all thought who heard him Mthougb his style of singing was so gran et there were no subtilities too nice to esc apt tispowerof delineation. When he and Jem, > Lind met, no two beings on earth were raon sociable. Their conversation was fascinating to ail who heard it. There was & greatness about these genuine artists to which no paral lel can be offered. Theatres In our large cities are rur,t log low ind suffering the usual imbecilities of tin u miner season. During tbe vear past va«t urns of currency have been scattered at then daces of amusement. They can atlurd to la) ip lor a while. Quilia Gris!

Religions an! Eoclesiastical Items. A leading Baptist clergyman of l’hiladel hia is attempting to Initiate a new order ol laptlsts. He proposes to retain the di-tin j '.uisblng doctrines and ordinances of the do j mmiuiikm, but to change their church gov j rnment to the Episcopal form. In his first Uempt to exercise the rnle of a bishop, le has succeeded so far as to split his own •butch. On Tuesday, the ltlh Inst., the Penobscot ! (iulsterlal Association, assisted by two | ■rethreu from other Associations, met at the 'J. la pel of tbe Theological Seminary in Bingor, and Hocused thirty young men as candidates for the gospel ministry. Three persons were baptized in Auburn on 1 Sunday,by ltev. Mr. Moulton of the Court, j St. Church. Thirteeu persons were baptized at Sabaltis viile ou.Sunday, by tbe Calvinist and Froa ! Baptist clergymen. j - I Fire is Boston.— A destructive fire oc curred in Boston, on Merrlmac and Causeway streets, yesterday morning. It took in the large sleaui plaining mill of John F. Keating, and before It was extinguished a large amount of lumber and other property was destroyed. Last evening’s Traveller had full details. Wa young married lady, traveling a few days lince from New York to Syracuse, suffering from consumption, had been laid carefully on a i pillow in the cars by her husband while her little girl remained by her side. At Little Falla she | fell asleep, and ths child commenced fanning her, say ing, "Mamma is sleeping.” A passen ger, however, noticed the peculiar whiteness of her lips, and on looking closely at her, discov. I ersd that she was dead. Eoclesiftgtioal Oonncili, To lh« Editor of lha Prtss: I hard been glad to see that tbs dally paper* have, to a considerable extent, refrained from discussing the recenttlecision of sucli a council In this city. But I have also noticed inci dental remarks and paragraphs calculat ed to make a lalse Impression In regaid to the necessity and design of such councils. Will you allow me to make a bruf statement of the principles held, as I suppose, by all Congrega- ' tionalists, including Unitarians, Universalists, Orthodox, and Baptists ? A church, being a body of persons holding substantially the same form ol doctrine, em ploy and settle a pastor, among other objects, to act as a public teacher, for their families, and tlie community. He should therefore bo qualified to instruct, ami should substantially agree with them iu doctrinal belief. It is not less important, certainly, that his qualifications should be first ascertained, tli.au in the case of a teacher iu public schools and seminaries of liarning. Hence it is that, in all denomina t ons, some tribunal is provided for this pur pose. In most congregational denominations, this matter Is referred to an ecclesiastical c mncil. It is sometimes said that each congregation al church is independent. This is true, to this extent,—that each church has the right to be independent. But, generally, churches of the same denom ination in a community, or Mate, enter into certain mutual relations with each otiier: and iu such case, when a pastor is to be ordained or settled, the question ot his tituess lor the oiHce is determined, not aloue by the church over which he proposes to be settled, but ny a c mncil from other churches called together iv such church. Experience has proved I he visdoin of this arrangement; or, at least, that i i method auv more lax should be adopted. N r is the congregational or democratic el inent in this way impaired. The church it eii selects the other churches to be repri leuted, without interference, or restriction. Vnd the other churches, whose advise is desir d, are represented no! ouly by tlieir pastors, hut by log delegates also, chosen by them selves. These are generally intelligent, able uen, who, though they may not take a proud' i*>nt purl in the examination, have an equal voice a d ntluence in the</; islon. That sue h i council would ever wish to interfere with he rights of a church, no one ran have any fear. But if it could in any case be otherwise, it has no power to to do It. Its decision is mi re !t ftdvlunrv. It is true, the churches being associated to gether for certain purposes, when th; advice j of several is sought by one, it is expected tliat it will be followed; otherwise it ought not to | be asked. If disregarded, a proper self-respect, and regard- for that order which is lor the peace and safety of all, would require that the church so acting should forfeit ite right and privilege iu the association, fellowship, or con ' ference ot the oilier churches Nothing less would bo expected: and uo one would coiu j plain of It. This simply leaves such a church | in that condition of t-mire freedom and inde pendency which is the ultimate right of all. j There is certainly nothing tike arbitrary pow er In this. N ir can the candidate for the ministry light tully complain if the council does not advise In j settlement. It Is a tribunal before which he ' B tlunlariljf appears, selected tcif/i his cunrur j rrace, under a system of church polity Iu \chich he assent*. II.* knows, or ought to know, the articles o'’ faith iu which the churches are agreed. Unless he substantially agrees with them, he ought uot to oif r himself for a pas torate or accept of an iuvitation. If, on im portant points, he has a different belief, or uo belief at all, hecertaiuly c*unotex|ieet a coun cil to advise his settlement. A Uuilariau church would uot want a pastor who lielievca iu the triulty; nor a Uuiversalist church one who believes iu endless punishment. It very rarely happens that a council dc | cliues to advise the settlement of a candidate; and still more rarely that the advice, if against I a settlement, is disregarded by the church Uni this uniformity of action shows,—not that I ihe calling of a council is merely a matter of form—not that its action is of no consequence, and may be set at nought, b it—that the ne cessity for harmony ot views is so apparent, that no man is likely to offer himself as ihe pastor or accept the call of a church, to whose doctrines he does not cordially assent.

Another saddened hornet Oh, when will this cease! Let me hear from you soon. Uutii S. Mayhnw. Washington Wilks. To tht Eii*tor of the Pre$$ The paragraph in your paper of yesterday anuouueing the sudden death of Washington Wilks, Esq., of London, w ill not fail, where ever he was known, to cause deep regret and sorrow in the heart of every lover of his racv and especially in the people of this country, who are trying to sustain and uphold all that | is worth living lor, a tree government. It was my fortune while in Europe to hear much of this champion of the North, and his advocacy in favor ot the preservation ol the 'Union, and I ain happy to say that at the last meeting, and one of the largest I attended in England which was held in the Free Trade Hail in Manchester, Mr. Wilks was one of the ! speakers, aud as a lover of humanity and ever) thing that is good, I was very soon iu love with him; simple, artless, but bold, elo quent, anu mighty for the truth, he swayed the hearts of the thou-auds there assembled almost at will, aud more thau otic* did tho tears start from the eyes of thn strong men present, while he portrayed and held up belore that audience some of the wrongs which hare teon, and still are heaped upon the poor and 1 the downtrodden of earth. No man in England has a I hied a keener Wade or given more home thrusts at the aris tocracy, and I feel sure that no mau in Eng land would have been more deeply mourned by the lovers of civil aud religious liberty than Washington Wilks. The mighty has fallen by the baud of death, but his noble deeds, his de- | fence of tho right, shall live when grauite and marble shall have mouldered to dust. Let the good people of the North, who are putting forth all their energy for tho tnain tainauce of our loved country, tench their children to love aud rememtier the name of Washington Wilks, the (riend of freedom. 8.
