El-ewhere In this paper we have copied from the for. bcuming number of the Atlantic Mouth ly,copious extract* from the report made by Mr. Ui’mire—perhaps better known by bis Mom deplume, “Edmund Kirke"—ofihe extra oi dinar y mission of himself aud Col. Jaques to the rebel capital. We ask for it not a careless but a caret ul reading, that the reader may the belter know how to appreciate the rumors of peace and the recommendations for an armis tice, put forth in copperhead journals with a view to mislead the people aud aid the cause of those who hate the Administration worse than they do the rebellion,and love their whole, undivided country less tuau they love their patty. The conversations of Colonel Jaques and Mr. G>linnre with Jefferson Davis weie frank, full aud frieudly; untiling appears to have been concealed or affected on either side; Da Tit declared his own determination with great C Mifideuce and boldness, aud he was told lu return, with equal confidence and boldness, of the determination of the North. The Eveiling Poet very perioeotly remarks that “two things are chiefly remarkable in these conversations of Davis with our sell appoiofed envoys. The first is the tenacity and vehemence with which be clings to the dictum that the South is lighting for no other end thaa self government. He confessedly aud almost indignantly throws slavery to the wluds,»’letting that he ca-es nothing about it. and that he would willingly release the remain lug two millions of slaves to the Norih, if the North would provide for their support. If be was t-incere In this, the North, we think, would wltliugly care for the uegroes iu order to get them emancipated; hut almost iu the same breath he observed that each state ofthe Con federacy had a>coutrolling voice in the dispos al of that question, and it wou'd be useless to agitaie il lin seeming Indifference to Ite rate of tbe slave was then but a shi t to sire point to his cry for self-government; a cry which has nothing to go upon unless our whole pilnlc-tl life hitherto has been a cheat and a failure. The South has always enjoyed self government under the constitution: had it at lb - moment of separation; aud would still have It If-lb w miM cousjut to accept the Constitu tion. Daring the eighty years of our nalional existence, with the exception of eight, it has directed the management of the national gov ern nent; It has always held a majority of all the natloual odice-; and it has always been austained by the domiuaut party of the North. A more flimsy or impudent pretext could not be invented than that which asserts that the S mih was ever deprived of the right or the power of self government. “But the second muter of Importance Is his open, earnest and unflinching disdain of all proffers of peace, except on the ground of dis union and independence. This was his tone I flrst, last and all the time. Assuming hypo crl'ica ly, as we are hound to thlult, a desire f >r the end of the war, or “to be let alone,” as be phrased It, he yet repelled, wilh warmth •mounting to anger, every thought of recon ciliation and harm ouoy between the North and South. We are two countries, be said, we are a distinct people, the South bitterly hates the North, it can never consent to live under the same rule, and we shall prosecute the war until our separate existence Is oflicla! 1y recognised or every man of us rots imder the sod. When Colonel Ja<jues hinted at terms which he was not authorized to offer,but which he had reason to suppose Mr. Lincoln would approve aud the people sauction—namely, a general vote of the people of both sections on the question of peace with disunion, as ihe southern proposition, or peace with a general •ptueety. uo coufiscaUoo emancipation, j '»ae**uujjW i uiwi' i'ij m\ .*jte*** under the Union, at th« northern proposition —he scouted the scheme as not simply imprac ticable, but as utterly undesirable. lie was unwilling to submit the matter to a decision of the majority. “We did not need the testimony of Colonel Jaques or Mr. Gilmore to inform us what these ambitious southern leaders aim at aud desire; yet their testimony is valuable at thia time. It shows us the head and front of the rebellion still clinging to the old dream of a slave empire, still vehemently hostile to the Union, still persistent for war and bloodshed. Nothing but the disruption and ruin of tho re public will satisfy them; and they will listen to overtures of peace on no other terms. In this state of things It is clear that nothing is left to us but to prosecute the war with re newed vigor. Karragut and Sherman and Grant are our best negotiators. Until the rebel government is dispersed, which will not he until its armies are destroyed, we can eu tertaiu no hopes of peace. That government is bent on war to the eud—those at mies are but its supple instruments—and both stain! as a wall between the people of the North and the people o. the South. Left to themselves, the people would soou aud easily reconcile their differences, adjust their causes of dis pule, remove the bone of contention, aud put the nation once more strongly and permanent ly on its feet; but while the conspirators ol Bicbmond hold away, wilh armies to buck hem, tbe battle must go on, and we waste our wind in talking of armistices.” “The Key-Note of True Democracy." Tile Argus commends tbe New Turk Day B-w>k to the Democrats of the State as a sub able campaign paper, aud say«, in editorisl comireudalion, that “its rapidly increasing circulation is a sufficient indication that it ah ik i a the key note of true democracy." It becomes interesting to know what par ticular featuie or element is possessed by the Day Book, not common to democratic papers, that should secure lor it its “rapidly increas ing circulation,” for by knowing Ibis we can tell what Is “the key-note of true di moeracj'’ w hich it has so successiully touched. It is not d lllctil to gain tbe knowledge di sked on this poiut. Tbe I)a\-Book has a pe culiar character. It advocates peculiar doc trines; doctrines advocated by no other paper in the lice States. Indeed, we sre not sure that another paper, North or South, can la fouud that occupies the same ground. lias sens the inferiority of the negro to the white, but this is no doettiue peculiar to it, for man) other papers do the same. It denies the right of the negro to any of the privileges of citi zenship, but in this it is not peculiar, forothei paper* hold the same proscriptive idea. It also in-ist that negro slavery, if uot a divine institution, is according to natural law*, and that the moral couditiou of the negro i* that oT a slave, and that iu freedom lie is out o' his proper place in the scale of creation; bu even sucli notions a* these are not peculiar to the Day-Book, for they have been and arc echoed by a paper of our own city. What then does rendei the Day-Book a pe culiar paper, or what doctrines leculiar to it give It such a hold upou the “faithful,” and the enunciation of which is the touching ol “the key note of true Democracy ?” Auswer. The Day-Book asserts that the negro is simply an animal; that he is not a human being; that he doe* uot belong to the rational creation; that he is simply an ape or orang outang endowed tn'fA speech ! More than this: the Day Book insists up* n reducing l he free colored people of the United States to slavery as the true solution of Iht negro problem, eo that uo relation of the ne gro race shall be recognized in this country except that of slavery to the white mau! This is the unblushing, out-spoken, uudis gttised doctrine of tbe Day-Book—not o ■ very number, perhaps, but still asserted, a all who have carefully read it for the last fout or five y ears well know. This is what render! it peculiar. Such doctrines have rendered ii offensive even to Keruando Wood. Such doc trines alone make il different from most othei democratic papers. Such doctrines give it It wide circula'ion. And such doctrines, so tht Argus virtually asserts, are the key-note oj true Democracy ! Aud it is such a {taper, holding such doctrines, that the Eastern Ar gus conimeud* :o the Democracy of Maine, a* a filling campaign sheet! Democrats of Moiue! What say you to the “key note?” Christian Democrats, who be lieve in a common Father aud a common brotherhood, and who prole.s to believe God has made of one blood ail nations of men to dwell on tbe face of the whole earth, what say you to the doctrine that the negro is a mere animal; a mere speaking ape; a mere beast ol burden; born with a saddle upou his back iu vitiug every tyrant to mount him wi lt whip and spur; that he was created for a slave as a norse Is to draw a load, and that every five black should be told iutoautl perpetually held iu bondage? Wbat say you to this, ye who believe iu a God of Love, and a Savior who died lo redeem inen from sin? lathis the key-note of true Democracy ? So intimates the Argus, showing that il is prepared to go to this extreme length. Grant's Late Movements How readily the Copperhead journals catch up everything that has the least appearance of a defeat ol the Potamar army, or a hack ing out of Grant from Virgiuia! A few days ago their columns were teemiug with such news, and even some had the patriotism to shed a tear over the record as they were making it. The Argus has a brief editorial upou the subject, but we are uot aware that the paper ou which it was written was blot ted or blurred by any tears—whelber croco dile or of a purer water. The editor wa* n->t satisfied with copying the lying tele grapbic new*, but concocted an editorial upon it to as to briug it more prominently beture the bis readers. The stoiies ran after the following fashion, each Copperhead editor using his own phrase ology as he tecorded the rumor: "Grant is abandoning the seigc of Rich mond. ilis campaign Is a failure. He is tracking out.'1 The Argus, the Richmond Inquirer, and many Copperhead editors carefully pul Grant on board trausports and seut them down tbe river to Washington. Tbe Argus said "re Cent intelligence indicates that itie cauipa gu has beeu completely abandoned and the at tempt to take Richmond giveu up—that mist of the ainiy had gone to Washington, A-c." Now what are the facts in the ca-c? Do ihey show any intention on the part ol Grant to withdraw hi* forces from Richmond? So far is this from being the fact, Grant has on ly changed ins position and advanced some miles nearer the rebel capital. In making ibis change, he moved down the river tor the purpose of putting Lee ofi his guard, and having doue that m successfully, lie leturn <d and planted his forces in a position where they could operate to better advantage, and where a good victory was won. Lee was de cived, and now, no Iroubt, wishes he ha t uot seut to large a force to join Early. It is very evident that Grant has made a strategic movement which has surprised Lee, aud lias produced some derangement of reb el plans. Our readers will see how greedily the Copperheads "gobble up" any rumor that looks like a defeat of our armies, and spread It far and wide. It would seem from such au aspect of the case, that these Copperheads base their hopes of the success of their par ty outlie ruin of our government and country. The fewer vlclories the Union army pains, ih, brighter they consider their prospects. Ii such a party could get tiro control of nfialrs, we might expect to see Jell'. Davis in the While House at Washington, and the South ern traitors serrouiidliig him as Cabtuel of ficers. But we have too much faith Ur the loyalty and patriotism of the American peo ple to be troubled with fears of such a catas trophe. In spite of all these Copperhead assaults | upon the pillars of the Republic; in spite of i ail this croaking and groaning; In spite of | this constant pulling down; in spite of this eternal fault-fluding; in spite of all these secret rejoicings at rebel victories, or what seems to Copperhead eyes to bo suchvic torles, the great Union party of the coun try will continue on its triumphant course, until the rebel power is broken, the loyal sen timent of the South set free from the military power that now bears it down, the Union re- 1 established, and all keep step to its glorious I mas c. ___ The Congressional Excursionists. SoiTH Wkst Uauiior, Aug. 17,1804. To the hdit>'r of the Preas: We left Bangor at half past eight Tuesday uiornirtg, the citizens of Bangor having reviot ualcd the Cutter for the cruise to Eistport in •he most liberal manner. Capt. Flower* who left us at Bath has agaiu taken charge of the expedition. The Cutter left the landing amid the cheers of the men and the waving of handkerchiefs by the ladies, Uring a national salute which#as responded to by tbo battery ashore. Mayor Dale and several gentlemen o Bangor j ined the expedition, and seveial ladies accompanied us as far as Belfast. On our passage down, the Rev. Mr. Ballard, Sec retary of the Maiue Histoiictl Society, gave us a historical accoui.tot the River,exp'aining , the Iudiau names. Ilis remarks carried the subject down to the time ol I’opham, when i tie called upon Mr. Poor, who gave a very in ; leresting sketch of its history up to the pres ; eni lime. David Barker, Maine's gifted poet, was j next ca led upon, who recited the following | poem, wiitten for the occacsiou: From INmnsylraiiis's yawning mints, And from m> native land of plies, From #tern New Hampshire's granite hill#. And from your Bay State cottou mills, From r.iine# whee heated freemen spoke Thoir wrong* around the Charter Oak.

Andwelcome Are, and welcome flood, And welcome deeper sea# of blood Tbe poem was received with great applause by his auditors. linn. Mr. Patterson of New Hampshire ind Hon. Mr. Woodbridge of Vermont loliow -d with brief and eloquent addresses^ and at 10. -15 we arrived at Buckspnrt, where wt stopped and crossed iu the horse ferry boa o inspect Fort Knox. Tbe works are pro gressing with rapidity aud thoroughness, un der the direction of Luther H. Eaton, Esq., •ivil engineer, who is local supervisor. Th* fort must prove itnpreguable to any naval force, both on account of its commanding •itualion and the strength of its construction. The stoue work is beautifully executed, the I joints are perfect aud the angles finely ami regularly cut. Seen Irom the river, the ap ! pearaueo is very imposing aud picturesque, which effect is greatly heightened by the dark colored native stone employed iu the rubble walls. The garrison is uuder command of Lieut. Thomas H. Palmer of the 1st Me Heavy Artillery. Fort Knox is intended to mount 120 guns. Leaving Buck-port, the cutter fired a sa lute in re-pause to that given on arrival, and at two o'clock arrived at Castiue, where we were greeted by the waving of handkerchiefs from a charming group of ladies at the Block House, auii by a salute from the battery and the cutter Toucey, Captain Martin. Oa landing, the party was received by the citizens, who formed in procession and escort ed them first to Old Fort George, aud thence to a grove m ar the Block House,on the Point, where they were received by tbe ladies and entertained with an excellent collation, after which the Rev. Mr. Ives addressed the com mittee on the importance of Castiue Harbor and its needs ol' defci.se, claiming it as tbe best harbor.on the coast aud asserting that it lias 18 feet more water than any other. Mr. Rice, the chairman, responded, iotre d iciug Hon. Fred. E. Woodbridge, of Ver mont, who undressed the ciliztus eloquently I for hail'au hour, alter which the party were introduced sociably to tbe ladies ol Castiue, aud the assemblage returned to the landing. Castlne is at present delended by a bs’tery built on the site of the old American Fort. Directly uorth of it is the old Barou de Cas tine Fort, built iu 1CG7. On tbe summit oi the hill is old Fort George, built by the F ig tish iu the revolution, aud rebuilt by them ii the war of 1812. One of the old inhabitants, now iu his hundredth year, assisted in draw ing tbe first stick of Umber for buildiug thi fort in the revolution. He is au old revolu lionary pensioner, by the name of Hutchins. We left Castiue at 5 3d, amid hearty cheers frnn tue citizens, »li eu were its heartily re turned, and a salute returned to the Cutter and battery. At tV4o the Mahoning arrived at Belfast, where a committee ol citizens, of whom Mi. Abbott, Esq., was chairmau, received the party at the steamer aud conducted them to Pierce's Hall, wnere he presented them to Mayor A. G. Jewett, who welcomed them Iu a brief speech. Mr. Rice responded briefly, alter which the hospitable citizens invited the 1 gentlemen of the expedition to their private residences aud quietly made them at home iu the happiest manner. At t» o'clock a soiree was given at Pierce's Hall, where ihe Mayor severally introduced the Hon. Mr. H tlltus, of New Hampshire, the Hon. Mr. Morrill, of Vermont, and the Hon. Mr. Kice, of Massachusetts, who enter -laiued the audience vjry acceptably until eleven o'clock. Tne Hon. Mr. Jenckes, ol Ithode Island, was then called upon, but re fused to detain the party from tbeir dancing until persua led by a unanimous vote of the ladies expressed by waving ol bandkerchiels Mr.Jencke - a Idressed the ladies for a quarterol au hour, aud was listened to with much inter est, after which Mayor Jewett announced that the remainder ol the evening would'be de voted to dancing, which announcement was re ceived with ent lueia-tic applause by his visi tors, especially by the g ilUul officers of the Cutter, who throughout the trip have quite eclipsed the Concessional Committee iu ac quiring the favor of the ladies, always except ing the honorable members from New York and New Jersey. The dancing continued until halt past one, when the gay company separated, our party averring, as they have done in every place, that the ladles were the most beautiful they had yet seen, which at least proves that the gentlemen are growing m <re susceptible a-> they travel through the cast. It is certain that the Belfast ladles are all beautiful, aud the scientific gentleman of the expedition, who is authority on every subject, asserts I that “each is more beautiful than the other.” Judgiug from the attention bestowed upon your correspondent, who was fortunate enough to be Invited to the hospitable man sion of Hiram Cbuae, E-q., the members ol the party were made perfectly comfortable during their slay, aud this morning at 8 43 the Cutter steamed out of Belfast Bay bound fur Mt. Desert, bearing with •them the best w ishes of the Belfast people as well as their worthy Mayor. "-- - At three and a half o’clock we arrived at Bass Harbor, into which we were forced to go on account of a dense fog shutting down. The larger portiou ol the party rode over to South West Harbor to get lodgings, while the remainder were accommodated aboard the Cutter. At three o’clock we started for this place and Arrived at half-past four, leaving for Eastport at seven, A. M. Bfcttity. National Convention of Spiritualists. The National Convention ol Spiritualists at Chicago, adjourned without day on Saturday last. Tue committee on organization report ed adversely to a national central organiza tion, or code for government, piopagandisui or supervision, but recommended local or ganizations. A plau was submitted for the “National Spiritual Fraternity.” Messrs. I'atridge and Henry C. Wright favored or ganization. A Mrs. Welsh dec-laud iu au epic poem, that the spirits themselves were oppos ed to organization at this lime. She atlj rated that they had determined that the plau of or ganization should lx- a form of the masonic older. She had bad a long interview with Stephen A. Douglas, who held the same views. She added that she had conversed with our mother Eve, who was mourning at the degrad ed condition of the women. The spirits, too* complained at having bteu excluded from the sessions of the convention. Dr. Darker was opposed to consolidation He belonged to a kingdom without a king, a slate without a law, a church without a creed. Judge Carter introduced a protest agaiust the resolutions approving ol the otiicial ca reer of Mr. Liucoiu and in lavor of his re e eclion. The motion to receive the protest was laid upon the table. Mr. Diukbain. of California, moved the adoptiou ol the following call: “There will be a World’s Convention of Spiritualists a>. New Yoik city, commenting Oil Washington s birtn-day, Feburary 2Hd, IStlj, at It) o'clock in the morning, in me laigest ball iu the city, to bn continued until all the business is tbr ugh with. Then a great circle ol the world will be inaugurated, a new Bible revealed, aud the old one revised aud thoroughly explained ; also, rules lor the pro mitigation o. relorrn throughout all society, given uudrr the direction ot God Almighty! thinugli Jesus Christ and the coadjutors, on ; the right wings of the celestial spheres. All tn-rsous, notwithstanding color or sect, are in vited to attend it they will observe ibe rules; but a small admission lee will tie charged* The meeting wbuu it adjourns will move urn to a large domain of ian I, lo lie selected be tween now and then. To uli who feel a irart ; • d we propose this as a Huai settlement of the ! question.” It was lost amid general confusion. The motion of Dr. Gardner to resolve the ! convention into a National Convention, was also voted down. me nasi uanaro. Either the oriental imagination of the Wash 1 ingtou correspondent of the X. Y. II, raid or the contagion of Mr. William Cornell.fewett’s itching for diplomatic fame has given birth to another rich page iu the ephemeral peace lit erature of the present political campaigu. The lovers ol the marvellous were treated yesterday to a telegram, as absurd as it is false, to the effect that the leading men of the nation are warmly in fivor of an ai uislice and negotiations foi peace. Let not our readers be etcited ove' this gross attempt at a sensa tion (1 tit bit, which, like all of its class, is simply a part of the complex machinery that is being put iu operation to influence the Chi cago Couveution. We hope the managers of | this system of canards will succeed in iuduc iug the National Convention of cnppeiheads to select a peace candidate. Nothing could l»e more to our purpose. The issue would be siinplllied. Those who kuow Senator Wilson aud Sec retary Fessenden need not be informed that they are the last to favor an armistice, and that they would never approve It. The idea that Mr. Lincoln favors the measure, that the sol diers may go home aud vote is simply ridicu lous, and could only have originated iu the brain of some obscure politician wbo has no sense beyond the smallest Kind of wire pull ing. Mark, too, that Mr. Craig, the agent of the Associated i'ress, who is a man of souse, did not send thu dispatch from New Y'otk. I His busiuess is to send reliable news. This telegram came by the ‘•Independent Liue’" to ! the Exchange. Lookout, however, for long and prosy editorials in the copperhead press ! ou the “mauileet eagerness of the public for peace," and the obduracy of the Executive in not listening to the ‘‘warning voice” of the people. Distribution of the National Banks. There are now established four hundred and sixty nine National banks, with :ui aggregate capital of overseventy-flve million dollars snd an aggregate circulation of nearly twenty-six millions. Tli- six New England states con lain eighty one of these banks; the seven cen i >ral sertbo.4!d states have one hundred and eighiy-uiue; the thiru-en western aud north western stales, including West Virginia and reunessee.have one hundred aud uiuety-eigbt; Louisiana has one. Ol the capital held by these banks those In the six New England stab s have nearly twei - ty-two millions with a cimi'atlou of over live aud a quarter uiiiims; tin*e in the seven other seaboard states nave over lliiriy-two millions, with a circulation ol over eleven and a quarter millions; those Iu the thirteen west ern and norlwestern states have a capital of over twenty one and a quarter tnillious, with a circulation of over nine millions. ' It appears that in the National banks of the New England states the circulation is to the capital about as five is to twenty ouc; In the central seaboard states about as eleven tothir ty-two; and in the western anil uorihwi stern s’ates about as nine to twenty-one.—|.V. Y. Ecening Post. Extensive Kouukuv of Gold—An In geiiiou- rubbeiy ol gold took place oil Noudny iu Wall street, New Yolk, iu the following I maimer: A small boy—as is the very impru dent cii-tom among down town nicrrhimis aud others—was scut by bis employer with a 1 bag containing $50d0 iu gold, intended lor a i broker iu Wail stieet. At the office the boy placed the hag on the counter, but was told by a peisou behind it that the principal wS' u-*t in, and that lie (the speaker) had nothing to do with the office t>u«iues*.

A dispatch was received at Merchant's Ex change yesterday, stating that the t-ar^ue I*. C. Alexander of U irpswell, Capt. Merryinan, from New York for l’ietou. was captured 15th ins!., by the pirate Tallahassee oH Mouhegati. The crew were landed at the latter place, aud arrived at Harpsweil Thursday. They report that the captain of the Talla lia-see said he was a Portlander and wanted ft) catch some of the Portland vessels. Sev eral of the capturcu seaineu stale that the “Capt, Wood" of the pirate is one Huckius,a Nova Scotian, w ho resided in Portland a short lime a lew years ago.

No ranches are lelt standing between Big Saudv and Little Blue. The Inhabitants between Forts Kearucy and Denver have all fled. Four trains were captured by the Indians on the Little Blue, and all the stock, d-W bead ol cattle and a large number of mules driven ofl. 1 he Indians are alt mourned, and meat ol them armed with long range guns Capt.

The rebels have destroyed all the oat build ings of the fort, and burned their only vessel lying under its guns. Everything about the mrt indicated a determination to contest tbe battle to the last. The channel to Dog River t is unmolested. The naval and land forces are I confident of success. At a late hour last night we heard that Ad miral Farragut had demanded the uncondi tional surrender of the tort, which was re used • by the rebel commander, who replied that he I ha<l six months provisions, plenty ol fighting I men, and would resist to the iast.
