Since the late elections, the leader of the so-called Democracy bare been talking no lit tle about stopping the war, compromising with "our wayward Southern sisters," and making peace with armed traitors In the field. The success these peace patriots are likely to meet with, and the conditions upon which the Rebels are willing to receive their proposi tions, can best be judged by reading the fol lowing article taken from the Richmond Whig of November 29th : ' "Peace. It is stated in Yankee papers that ex-Senator Bigler, of Pennsylvania' lias written a litter proposing a plan of peace.

Nothing less than this would be practicable, or have the appearance of befcg i...
