Our neighbor a few days ago copied id elab orate leader from the Richmond Sentinel, and presented It to his readers at proof that the rebels are very desirous of peace. Now we hare no doubt the masses of rebeldom desire peace, and would pursue a just and honorable course to obtain the bleaeing, if they were not kept under and bound down by the most cruel and relentless military despotism that ever cursed any country ou the globe. If these crushed masses could emerge from their pres ent position and once get the control of what is called the confederacy, they would ask for peace and admission into the Union, and ask too in such a manner and on such conditions as to secure the immediate attention of our Government, and the.boon they so much de lire. But until the military power of Jeff. Davis is broken, and his army routed and scattered, the voice of these masses cannot be heard amid the roar of rebel eancon, or if heard, It will not be boeded, but stifled and powerless. •Stop the thunder of these rebel cannon, the rattling of rebel musketry, the shrieking of reb el shells, and the music of the rebel ear-pierc ing fife ond soul stirring drum, and the erv of peace would come up from the depth* of mil lion* of heart* and reach the heaven*. The love for the old flag of the Union would be re kindled into a blaze,and war and rumors of wtr would no longer be heard within our borders. The policy of the rebel leaders would be repu diated, and they would be driven from the land they have so much oppressed. But it may be asked, do not these rebel leaders want peace ? We answer, they do, but on such conditions as the loyal people and the friends or the Union <U never grant. But what of the offers of p ce which this organ of Jeff. Davis has re ciL’Jy made? We give below an extract from tb Richmond Sentinel which embodies the gis> of their peace offers, and which the Argus so foudly hugs to its bosom as evidence that these leading traitor* are anxious for peace. Here it is:— •■We of ths Sooth consider independence as the gree-. and drat objeet of the war, and that aeptratlon 2* *° independence; yet we ahal. be willing to listen to whet yun have to ear and propose on the other side.” • • e e • • * * "You may ofer as something that will secure our equal rights ».(*■• the Vn,on. We don’t consfdernti<on*",f* bttt "object is worthy of Now let the reader remember that the ideas shadowed forth lu the above extract are di rectly iu the teeth of what Jeff. Davis said to Gilmore and utterly opposed to the whole scope and tenor of rebel proceedings. But this is not all. This Richmond editor, this pretended mouthpiece of the arch traitor himself, is ex ceedingly cunning and shrewd, very cautious and careful not to commit himself or any body else to any definite policy, or to any distinct and tangible offers of peace. Let the reader mark that well. This rebel editor is most anxious to furnish political capital for Vallandigham and his par ty, and to give the coming Chicago Conven tion something to harp upon, and, if possible, to deceive the people and secure their votes for the peace junto. Their object it as clear and distinct as a sunbeam, and no intelligent reader can fall to see it. The democratic par ty is sadly in want of political capital for the coming campaign, and this rebel editor has un dertaken to furnish It cheaper than it can be obtained elsewhere. ———J—j*——*“ “You may offer us something that trill se* | cure our equal rights vithin the Union,” he says, and yet he Is very careful to intimate that the offer may not suit them. Ol course, this shrewd fellow prepares a plank npou which to slide off in case the propositions might not be agreeable to tbe traitors. What arrant non sense is all this? O yes, we conld “offer some thing” to these rebels which might be satisfacto ry, provided we would bend the pregDaut hin ges of our kuees and fawn upon them, and for ever disgrace ourselves in the eyes of all the governments of the civilized world. But we shall not probably do any such thing. “Offer something that will secure our equal rights” I What a mean and coutemptible sub terfuge I It is enough to rouse tbe indigua tion of any people. J ust as if we of the North had ever deprived these rebels of their “equal rights,” aud were now eudeavoring to destroy, annihilate, exterminate them! Just as if the United States Government had deprived the South of their constitutional rights aud privi leges! What an unfounded charge, and they and all the Northern copperheads know it, and yet the cry of peace is based upon such a foun dation. It requires a good deal of pa'icnce to deal with such ineau aud contemptible soph isms, but they must be exposed and their au thors treated according to their deserts, gif tliis Richmond editor could coax, wheedle j or,iu any way,induce our government to sue for peaee, lie would rejoice aud all rebeldom with him, hut he lias no hope of that, lor he and his master know better. All they expect or hope for, is to furnish some political trading capital for the democratic party, and help put one plank into the Chicago platform. Tbe whole scope and drift of this Richmond editor's lead er, which the Argus has so exuitingly placed before its readers are to a«sist Vallandigham and his party to rise into place aud power, ll that could be done, then Jeff. Davis and his coadjutors would have thiugs all their own way. The cunningly devised document was out lined at Niagara Falls, and tbe print of Vallan dighatn's band is evidently seen in it. These traitors and copperheads outside the limits of rabeldom, have been concocting plans and pro jecting measures for the express purpose of furnishing the Chicago convention with some thing to place before the people, gull tlieih and sscure their votes. Jeff. Davis himself is en gaged in this work of deception, for lie very well knows there is no hope of a dissolution of the Union and the erection of an independent Confederacy, if the present administration is continued in power. Tbe only hope for such a consummation is In tbe success of the dem ocratic party at the coming election. Who cam suppose for a moment that Jeff. Davis de sires a reconstruction of the Union? flow would an arch traitor like him fee! in a Union over which the stars and stripes must wave? The idea is entirely preposterous. No, he nor any other leader of the rebellion desires a re ' construction of the old Union, for they know ! it would be political death to them. They are j not fools. They know that they could not j breathe the same atmosphere hi which the old ! Union flag floats. i Again we say, and wish it forever to be borne in mind, that thousands upon thousands in the South desire peace and the reconstruc tion of the Union, and they would ask for it i too, if there was not a liou in their path, aud I that lion is the military power still in the grap of Jeff. Davis. The loyal millions will yet slay that lion, or drive him into the waters of the Gulf as horses and riders were plunged In { to the Red Sea, And when that work shall have been accomplished, the rainbow ol peace will once more span the heavens over the | length and breadth of our domain, and the nations of the earth ouce more behold the old Union flag,“full high advanced, its arms and ; trophies streaming in their original lustre, not a stripe erased or polluted, nor a single star obscured.” May God hasten that happy day. -- Hard Lines. The Copperhead editor of the Belfast Re | publican Journal complains that the same day Uncle Sam exacted from him a $0000 bond to answer au indictment lor assisting the rebel ! lion, his “Southern brethren” on board the Tallahassee executed a S5000 bond lor the sur render of his barque Suliote, which they had | captured and released. He thinks “one Jvf | fason Dan's1’is chivalrous, but not grateful, or at least not well informtd, or, not to put \ too flue a point upon it, that he has not a well i defined notion of what oue political associate may demand of another. If the editor had !>een on board at the time of the capture bow i could he have fired a gun in defence of bis property ? That would have been aiding this | "abolition tear.” It would have been conlrib ! utiug a skull or two to build Abe's pile as high as Geugis Kahn’s, (whoever he may have i been.) lie would have explained. There was - a mistake about the busiuess. The Suliote was not properly papered. If she had been furnished with the dozen last issues of the “Republican Journal," she would only have been overhauled, and suffered to proceed on her way. We do not know what discretion is reposed in this Tallahassee pirate by his rebel employers, but we believe il Mr. Simpson will j forward him his last paper, reciting the In ! dictment against him, and an eloquent narra tive of his sufferings fur the cause, that the captain will cancel the bond, so far as his in ! terest in the barque is concerned. The Brand that won't Bub Out That they might have a piece of horror over 1 which to expeud their righteous indignation | and with which to stir the hearts of ignorant i people, the Copperheads have invented a silly story about branding rejected recruits, and the New York Express—feigning to feci the Iron in its own quivering flesh,exclaims, “We are Lincoln’s dogs.” In answer to this exhi bition ol Copperhead feeling, the Washington Chronicle says: “Don’t be alarmed, gentlemen, for any visi ble brand that may be put upon you. Time will wipe that out; or, ir not, the corroding band of death will efface it. Hut you ate branding yourselves with an ineffaceable stig ma, that neither time uor tbe destroyer s touch, nor the charities of meu, nor Hie for giveness of angels will ever wipe out. In prolonging this war, by helping traitors and thwarliug tbe efforts of our gallant armies in the field, you are consigning yourselves to a depth of infamy that almost relieves the guilt of Arnold, and ligotens the baseness or J udas. * The Copperheads and Gen. Gantt. Tbe Argu has taken to abusing and copy ing slanderous paragraphs about Gen. Gantt. While tbe Genera1 was a rebel, wore the Con federate uniform, ane was fighting against the Federal Government, tu Argus bad no hard word for him. He was tfien a “man and a brother. But now that he u« abjured his re bellion, renounced his disloyalty, |aij jown bis arms, and taken an oath to’.,ipport ti,e constitutional government of bis com,try, the Argus assails him. This is not woum'rful. Gantt the rebel General wa.» in sympathy with and tbe ally of the so-called Democratic cause as a loyal worker for the Uuiou he injures that cause, and hence the opposition of tlie copperheads.

Tt the Editor of the Portland Prese ll. S. General Hospital, I Natchez, Miss, Aug. 3, 1304. ) I send you for publication a list of deaths of soldiers of Maiue regiments, that have | occurred since the 1st of July last: Everett Leighton, Co. D, 13th; Owen Getchell, Co. I, 29ib; Ckas. H. Trail, Co. 13, do; James Wellman, Co. E, do; Morrill San born, Co. D, 30th ; Samuel Gross, Co. 13, do; Geo. S, Herrick, do., do. There are several more left here from the 20th and 30th and a lew from the 13th and 14th. I am expecting to soon receive an or der to take them North, as the Regiments have already gouc. We have a One hospital here, delightfully situated in one of the healthiest cities of the South. Mercuty has not reached 00 this season. Wo are lib erally supplied by the Sauitary Commission with pfeuty of potatoes, onions besides dried fruit and all the luxuries of home, and I can as ure the people of Maine, notwithstanding all the reports about Doctors and nurses re ceiving the benefit of Sauitary supplies, that here, and as a general rule iu this Depart ment (Department of the Gulf) the soldiers and soldiers only receive the benefit of the ai tides so liberally supplied by the Sanitary Commission. 1 have myself, been so situated that i could I 1 not procure auy thing to eat for three days, ex ] cept what I received from the Sanitary Com mission, which was at the same time feeding live hundred sick and wounded meu from the i Red River campaign. If any one objects to | this, I ouly ask that he may be placed in ; similar circumstances thus giving him an opportunity of displaying his moral quail- : lies by a heroic endurance of the demands of hunger. I am inclined to think he would have yield- j ed to the temptation of good fresh beef soup, crackers (soft I, butter, pickles, to say nothing of vegetables, jellies, milk punch, lemonade, wine, Ac., Ac., in the greatest abundance. To see those sick soldiers thus cared for, on board j a crowded boat, and to know that many of their lives were saved thereby, would stop all “croaking” from any man wiio hail any hu manity left in him, even if he did know that the Surgeon (who was working all the time for them) satisfied his hunger from the same food. No, the Sanitary Commission lias been ' the means of saviug thousands of lives, for it often comes iu at a lime when uothing else can be had. It comes like inauuafrom Heav ; en. Let the people continue to do, trusting ! (safely) that the must goes to the sick soldiers. S. C. Gordon, Louisiana V js. Inf, Surgeon in charge. Swiss Kindness. Under the above caption the New York World Indite* a leaner, cold-blooded, heart ier* ahd shameful. The Swiss have sent over to our government a letter in which they ex ‘ press much sympathy for the United States in its present struggle agaiust the most gigan tic rebellion that ever arose against aDy gov j eminent. This lettar is signed by some of the best and most influential men in that ■ country, and is written iu the most courteous l terms, and yet the editor of the World sneers at it and treats it with the utmost contempt. It is shameful that any American editor i should Puns treat respectable, intelligent aud influential men of a foreign country, whose only crime is ihat thoy hope aud pray that ] our government may succeed in putting down this unholy rebellion, aud once more raise the - old flag of the Union orcr every inch of our territory. There may be .mother crime in the : estimation of this heartless editor. These Swiss gentlemen did express their opiuion that human bondage is a great evil, and thereby incurred the censure of the World. There’s the rub. This opposition to slavery is the trouble with this writer. If nothing had been said about uegro bondage, perhaps this editor would have remained silent; but lie could not patiently hear any fault found with the “peculiar institution” so dear to his heart. Shatne on such heartless editors who 1 live under a Republic m government. Arizonia. We have before us the Arizonia Miner, of a recent date. It contains Gov. Goodwin’s Proclamation for a Territorial Election on the 18th ot J uly, for the choice of a delegate to Congresi and the election of members of tie Legislative Assembly ; also a Proclamation defining the Judicial Districts of the Territo ry The Miner is a small sheet, about one quar terns large as tbe Daily Press, published week ly at $5 a year iu the new town of Prescott, the location of which, as described in the I Miner, is not very definite to a distant sran ger: Prescott is about 12 miles west from Walk er’s Gulch, (Lynx Creek) about six miles north from Groom’s Creek, leu miles north Irom the upper Ilassuyampa, and some thirty miles north from the town of Weaver aud the Ante lope diggings. The first sale of lots in the new town took place on the 4th of June, and passed off in a spirited manner. Seventy-three lots were sold, for a total amount of $3, 927,50, though the appraised value was but $910;—a pretty good speculation. As usuul, says the Miner, tbe press took the lead, the highest price hav ing been paid for a lot for that paper, aud its building being the llrsterected upon the town site. Think of that; the flmt building iu a town for a printing and newspaper office! There's enterprise for you. Gen. Burnside—The Prospect Gen. Burnside, whose devotion to his coun try has been as steady and persistent as the affinity of the needle for the pole, entertains t ie most cheering views ol the prospects of the army, and has nu abiding confidence in Grant's full aud. triumphant success. The Providence Journal says he brings very cheer ing account* from the army of the Potomac Tbe Journal adds: Mil. A_-__ _.L._ . . * .. . ^ • vnowii iuu iirnpuii* i deacy which seems to prevail bpre, and to in crease iu proportiou to the distance I'rom the scene of active operations. Gen. Burnside ! feels certain that the enemy has been greatly weakened hy losses, and is wearing away uu i dcr the continual pressure of our forces. He i feels entire confidence in Grant and in the officers and army of the Potomac, provided ' they are sustained hy the loyal people of the i North. He has no doubt that Grant will take Uicbinond or do tomeUiing better. Our men -laud the. heat quite as well as those on the other side. Burnside, although of cheerful temperament, is always a careful and sud an honest observer; and liis opinion is of as much value as any that could well be formed. We regard it, therefore, as good cause of encour agement, aud impot taut to be made public.” Spirit of the Bangor Convention. The Boston Evening Transcript, one of the i ablest papers published at the “Hub,” very 1 iuslly remarks that the true Copperhead principle has never been more lucidly stated thau it was by a Mr. Silas Drew of Bangor, iu tbe late Maine Peace Convention, who said “he believed Geu. Lee to be the advocate of ! true self-government, and Abraham Lincoln a hellish tyrant.” This sentiment was loudly cheered and, one enthusiastic delegate shout ed, "That's it; we are all rebels agaiust Liu- I coin. V irgll D. Parris, Buchanan’s agent at the Portsmouth Navy Yard, the infamous slanderer of his old friend, Vico President Hamlin, who escaped from the just indigna tion of tbe loyal men in that vicinity in 13(11, was an active member or the Convention. Sad Disaster on Lake Emu,_The Sher brooke Guzettc says the propeller “Hacine ’ bound to Buffalo, with a cargo of corn, took lire on Wednesday of last week, off llondeau 1 Point. A life boat with live deck hauds and four passengers was upset, and all drowned. Twenty-seven out of forty of the crew aud passengers were saved by the tug “Avon,” of Montreal, thirteen perishing. The Seven-Thirties^V^hat are they? We trust that a large portion ol our readers lave pondered the Appeal of Mr. Fessenden,ouc lew Secretary of the Treasury. Tue purport , if it is that the people of the United States, icting as a body through their agent the Gov ernment, wish individuals to lend them two liundred millions ol dollars for three years, at seven and three-tenths per cent, annual iuter- i est, payable every six muhtlis. For this they | oiler Treasury Notes—that is, in re.tlity, notes drawn and endorsed by every tnsn in the country. The loan is wanted lor a great na- , lional purpose, to effect which every man, un less he lie a traitor at heart if not in act, is solemnly pledged. The Appeal is addressed not merely to a few great capitalists, but also to the many whose aggregate means constitute the mass of the wealth of the laud. The notes upon which the loan is asked are front $50 upward. Ev ery man who has fifty dollars can take part in tins loan. Apart from patriotism arid tire du t.y which all owe to their country, no invest ment is so desirable as this. It is secure. Every dollar of every man's property is pledged lor the punctual payment of the inteiest, and of the debt when due. ! The security is increasing iu value. F. r se ine years before the war we were earning luo I millions a year more than we spout. Dining the three years of the war, owing to tiie high price and constant demaud for labor, we have earned moie than ever before. No man who could or would work lias been idle; and, ex cept fir the. war, we have spent less than be lore. Tiie total valuation of tiie property of the United Stales, according to the census of 1«00. was $10,151),000,000, ot which $10,957, 448,950 was iu the Loyal States. This valua tion, according to the. usual rule ot assesim-ut, was not more than two-thirds of tiie actual cash value of tiie property. The increase ot property in the Loyal Stales during tho last ton years, was over 120 per cent., or an aver age of 12 0 10 per ceul. per annum. In three years of tiie war we of the United States have \ certainly earned 8000 millions more than we have spent apart Horn tiie war. The cost of , tho war may he set down at 2000 millions. , Deducting this from our net earnings, the l’eople who are security for this loan ate 1000 millions richer to-day than they were when the ! war broke out. No other investment can be so easily con vertible. The man who has a Treasury note for $50, or $100, or $1000 can turn it into money more readily, and upon heller terms, ; than if it were invested upon bond and mort gage, or in railroad stocks. The interest offered is higher than can be realized from any other sate and convertible investment, it is, moreover, readily colleeta li e wheu due. To each note are infixed live •‘coupons'’ or intercut tickets, due at the ex piration of each successive halfjear. The holder of a note has simply to cut off one of coupons, present it at the nearest bank or Government Agency, and receive his interest; the note itself need not he, presented at all. Or a coupon thus payable will everywhere be equivalent, a hen due, to money. Thus, while this loan presents great advan tages to large capitalists, it offers special iu uia:viiiviiii« w iuudc muf nnu iu niaur a pan* and profitable investment of small saving. It 1 is in every (way the liest Savings, Bank; for ) every institution of this kind must souk how invest its deposits profitably in order to pay interest and expenses. They will invest j largely in this loan, as the bast investment, I hut from the gross Interest which they receive ; they must deduct largely for (he expenses of the Bank. Their usual rate of interest allow ed to denoeltors is & per cent, upon sums over $.■>00. The person who invests directly with Government will receive almost 50 per cent, more. Tbps the man who deposits $1000 in a private Havings' Bank receives 50 dollars a year interest; if he deposits the same sum in this National Savings’ Bank ho receives 73 , dollars. For those who wish to find a safe, convenient, and profitable means of invest- < ittg the surplus earnings which they bave re- ; served for their old age, or for the benefit of their children, there is nothing which presents so many advantages as this National Loan. It Is convertible into a six per ceut, gold bearing bond. At the expirattou of three years a holder of the notes of 7 30 loan base the option of accepting payment in fill1, or of i fuuding hi« notes in a six per cent, gold inter est bond, the principal payable in not less l hau live nor more than twenty years from its date ns the Government may elect. For six months past, these bonds have raged at an average premium of about eight per cent, in the New York market, and have sold at 109 to-day (Aug. 12<h,) thus making the real rate of in terest over ten per cent.; and besides, to make the inducement even greater, Congress by | special act exempts its Treasury notes from i state and municipal taxation. Could Shylock I ask more? Was patriotism ever so liberally rewarded? | Harper’s Magazine. The Pay of Union Prisoners. Gen. Order No. 9 1801. Provides, that: “Payment will be made to persons present ing written authority from a prisoner to draw his pay; or, without such authority, to his wile, the guardian of his minor children, or his widowed mother, in the order named. Application for sueli payment to be msdc to the senloi paymaster ol the district in which the regiment of the prisoner is serving, on the certificate of a judge of a United States court, of a district attorney of the United States, or of some other party under the seal of a court of record of the State ir. which the applicant is a resident, setting forth that the applicant is the wife, guardian of children, or widowed mother of the prisoner, and, if eith er of the last two, that there is no one in ex istence more nearly related according to the above classification.'’ We arc authorized to say that applications made personally or in writing to Major James Mann, No. 8 Clapp’s block, U. S. Pay master, will he promptly attended to. Maj. Mann will cheerfully render all the aid in his power, to the families of our soldiers now in rebel prisons, to assist them in securing ! their pay, for which hexclll make no charge, but will esteem it a pleasure to do so. Papers in this state and New Hampshire, * giving circulation to the facts stated above, will doubtless confer a great lavor upon the families of Union prisoners, and save them the payment of large fees to claim agents. -.
