uuTrender nugatory all rebel designs for
future raids across the border. It is sup
posed that as soon as it becomes a law
our State Department will no longer en
force the passport system so tai as re
Utes to Canada.
Nothing additional has yet been made
public regarding the progress of the
neace conference between President
Lincoln and Secretary Seward, on*the
p ae side, and Messrs. Stephens, Hunter
and Campbell on the other, Though many
rumors of an extraordinary character are
current. The three latter gentlemen
arrived in Hampton Roads on Thursday
afternoon, on board one of General
Grant’s special despatch steamers, along
side of which immediately ran the river
Guyon, having on board Secretary
Seward, and the two vessels were anchor
ed together in the stream, in.which
position they continued during the re
mainder of the day. What transpired be
tween their distinguished passengers re
mained a secret at the date of our latest ad
vices. We have as yet no announcement
of President Lincoln’s appearance on the
scene of negotiations. Our despatches
give m >st interesting accounts of the
progress of the rebel commissioners to
City Point, and of the enthusiasm of the
soldiers on both sides when they entered
the Union lines. All firing was sus
pended, and the opposing pickets enter
ed into free conversation.
The State Legislatures have taken hold
of the constitutional amendment' for the
abolition and prohibition of slavery in
good earnest* Those of the following
States have already ratified it, and others
have taken it up and have its adoption
pending: New York, Pennsylvania,
Massachusetts, Illinois, Michigan, Ma
ryland, Rhode Island, West Virginia,—
In the Legislature of this State the pas
sage of a bill is necessary to complete
action on it. This has not yet been en
acted ; but still, as both houses have
adopted by a decisive vote a resolution
in its favor, we may consider the matter
virtually settled. In the Senate the res
otution received seventeen affirmative
aid eight negative votes, and in
the Assembly seventy-two affirmative
and forty negative.
The Steamer Ben De Ford arrived at
Hilton Head this morning, bringing
dates to the stb, which contain impor
tant news respecting the peace move
ment. We embrace all that has reach
ed us in the following ;
President Lincoln and Secretary Sew
ard had an interview of considerable
length with Hon. Alex. H. Stephens,
Senator R. M. T. Hunter and Ex-Judge
Campbell, commissioners from the Rebel
Government, on board a steamer in
Hampton Roads; and it was asserted by
those who were well informed, that an
honorable peace may soon be attained.
No other question will be considered in
Congress until this one is finally settled.
We will give further details to-mor
row. The report reached us at so late
an hour that we are compelled to con
fine ourselves to the salient points, and to
defer the particulars until onr next issue
The political heavens look brighter.—
Ve believe that a satisfactory basis for
ptace will soon be reached.
