newsnaoers in the Confederate States.
We addressed ajoint and informal note
to the President on this subject, but, as
it was sent by a mssenger under pecu
liar embarrassments, it was couched In
very, guarded terms, and was not so
full or explicit as we originally intend

THE REBEL COMMISSIONERS RECEIVE
Soon after tho arrival of Mr. IIol-
combe. Mr. Thompson and myself in
Canada West, it was known in the
United States, and was the subject of
much speculation there as to the object
of our visit. Some politicians, of more
or less lame, representing au parues in
the United States, came to see3Ir. Hoi
combe and myself Mr. Thompson be
incr at Toronto ana less accessiDie man
we were at tho Falls either through
euriositv or some better or worse mo
tive. They found that our conversa
tion was mainly directed to the mutual
Injury we were inflicting on each other
uv the war. ine necessity ior peace in
order to preserve whatever was valua
ble to both sections, and the probabili
tv of foreurn intervention, when we
were thorough! v exhausted and unable
to injure others, and tho dictation of a
peace less advantageous to both bellig
erents than they might now make, if
there was an armistice of sufficient du
ration to allow passion to subside and
reason to resume its sway.
WHY SAUNDERS SOUGHT OUT G REE-
In the meantime Mr. Geo. X. Saunf
ders who had preceded us to the Falls
was addressing, either directly or in
" directly, his ancient and intimate par
ty friends, and others in the United
States supposed to be favorably inclin
ed, assuring them that a peace mutual
ly advantageous to the North and the
South might be made, and inviting
them to visit as, that we might consid
er and discuss the subject. He inform
ed us that Mr. Greeley would visit us
if we would bo pleased to see him. -4
Believing from his antecedents that ho
was a sincere friend of peace, even with
separation if necessary, we authorized
Mr. Saunders to say that, we would be
glad to see him. Mr. Greeley replied,
as we were told through Mr. Jewett
who had been an active and useful
agent for communicating with citizens
of the United States that he would
prefer to accompany us to Washington
City to talk of peace, and would do so
.if we would go. We did not then be
lieve that Mr. Greeley had authorized
this proposal in his name, for. neither
me nor Mr. Saunders had seen it in any
telegram or letter from Mr. Greeley,
but had it only from the lips of Mr.'
Jewett, who is reported to be a man of
fervid and fruitful imagination and
very credulous of what he wishes to be
true. Notwithstanding, after calm de-i
liberation and consultation, we thought
that we could, not in duty to the Con
federate States decline the invitation,
and directed Mr. launders to say that
we would goto Washington if complete
and wiquafijietf protection was given
us. We did not feel authorized to
Icak for Mr. Thompson, who was ab
sent, and we, moreover, deemed it nec
essary that he or 1 should remain here
to promote the objects that the Secreta
ry of, War had given us and another in
GREELEY MORE SERVICEABLE THAN
HAD BEEN HOPED. l
We did not expect to hear from Mr.
Greeley again upon the subject, and
were greatly surprised by his note from
the United Statesside of the Falls, ad
dressed to us as "duly accredited from
llichmond as the bearers of proposi
tions looking to tho establishment of
How or by whom that character was
imputed to us, we do not know. We
suspect, however, that we are indebted
for the attribution of the high and re
sponsible office to Mr. Jewett, or to
that yet more credulous and inventive
personage. Dame Rumor. Certainly,
we are not justly chargeable with hav
ing assumed or affected that character,
or with having given anyone sufficient
grounds to infer that we came clothed
with any such powers. We never
sought or desired a safe conduct to
Washington or an interview with Mr.
Lincoln. Y e never proposed, suggest
ed or Intimated any terms of peace to
any person, that did not embrace the
independence of the Confederate States;
We have been as jealous of the richts.
interest and honor of our government
as any of its citizens can be, and have
never wittingly compromised them by
act, word or sign. Ave have not felt it
our duty to declare to all who have ap
proached us upon the subject, that re
union was impossible under any change
of the Constitution, or'abridgment ef
tho powers of the Federal Government.
We have not dispelled the fond delu
sion oi most oi i nose wiui whom we
have conversed, that some kind of com
mon government might at some, time
hereafter be re-established. But wo
have not induced or encouraged this
idea. On the contrary, when obliged
to answer the question "Will tho
Southern States consent to reunion ?"
I have answered, "Not now; you
have shed so much of their best blood,
have desolated so many homes, Inflict
ed so much injury, caused so much
physical and mental ngony, and have
able wrongs without justification or
excuse, as they believe that they
would now prefer extermination to
your embraces as friends and fellow
citizens of the same government. You
must wait till tho blood of our slaugh
tered people has exhaled from the soil,
till tho homes which you have destroy
ed have been rebuilt, till our badges of
mourning have been laid aside and the
memorials of our wrongs are no longer
visible on every hand, before you pro
pose to rebuild a joint and common
government. But I think the .South
will agree to an armistice of six or
more months, and to a treaty of amity 1
and commerce, securing peculiar and i

merely to find out our conditions of
peace; : but we give him credit for seek

yet it was part of our purpose to. ascer

We have achieved our purpose in
