STATE JOURNAL. ALEXANVHIA ■ MONDAY EVENING, MARCH 21. 1865. w. J. OOWIIVCi, Editor. Terms of Submission The Albany Evening Journal has some remarks on the recent manifesto issued in London by the Ex-Rebel Congiessman, Henry S. Foote. It decidedly objects to the writer’s suggestion that President Lincoln shall issue a proclamation offering amnesty to all offenders, inviting them to return to the Union and retake its blessings. It says : There, are numerous reasons why, even were this proposition to be made in such form as to indicate that its acceptance by our Government would terminate the war without another battle, it would necessarily be rejected. We are fighting for military success not merely—but for success in which principle shall be triumphant. The events of four years have defined the principles of our policy very distinctly, and changed them radically. For a considerable lime after the struggle began, we might have had peace without confiscation or emancipation. Now, both ...

STATE JOORNAL ALEXANDRIA: TUESDAY EVENING, MARCH 28, IBds U’. J. OOWIKG Editor. Dealing Directly with the Southern People. • Some of our contemporaries think that peace “lies in the direction of a direct dealing with the minds, and hearts ot the Southern people.” This view assumes that the rebels in arms are to be left out of the calculation altfcgether, and we presume are to bo oared lor by Grant and Sherman as heretofore. The scheme, so far as it has been tried, has worked well. An incentive (o direct dealing with the people is found in the fact that both Jeff, Bavis and his Senate and Congress are at loggerheads with each other. He sent them a message lately, telling them some disagreeable truths, and they rejoined severally in reports. These reports are suggestive and interesting, as showing the rebellion to be very unevenly balanced ; in fact, in a state of mortal dissolution. The report of the rebel Senate is a tissue of recrimination against Da-. vis ; in tine, a broad sarcas...

STATE JOURNAL. ALEXANDRIA: WEDNESDAY EVENING, MARCH 29, 1865, w. J. UOWINCx "Editor. Reconstruction. The process of reconstruction is going on satisfactorily in the South On the I.4th inst,, a meeting of citizens of Wilmington, N. C., was held, at which addresses were made in which secession was pronounced a crime and failure, and the Jeff. Davis Government was characterized as a “monster despotism.”— This meeting may be regarded as one spoke in the wheel of reconstruction. It has often been said that it was impossible to reconstruct the Union by military operations, because a proud and sensitive people, like those of the South, having been humiliated by defeat, would not consent to live in friendship with those by whom they were “subjugated.”— Such a theory is entirely at wat with historic precedent. It is now abundantly disproved by practical experience in the case of the rebels themselves. Leaving out altogether the very late case of Wilmington, it may be said that Memphis, New O...

STATE J’OUTlf AL. ALEX AM OH IA: THURSDAY EVENING, MARCH 30. 1865. VV. J. COWING, Kdttor. Preparing to Head them off. One of our Western contemporaries states vs a fact that two important movements are now being initiated, one from the Eastern, the other from the Southern borders of Tennessee. The object of these combinations on the part of the General-in-Chief is doubtless to put in the field an effectual barrier to the escape of Lee westward, from Richmond when he is forced out of.that stronghold of treason. Ihe first movement is. from Knoxville, underMajor General Stanley, of the Fourth Corps, and the expedition will number from fifteen to eighteen thousand men. Its field of opperation will be Western 'Virginia, and it is more than likely that not only will the passes the rebels will be likely to select in any attempt to escape, be garded, but Lynchburg may receive some attention. Thus at the moment of Lee’s gratest trouble Ger. Grant has caused another cloud to rise in a new qua...

STATE JOURNAL. ALEXANDRIA: FRIDAY EVENING, MARCH 31, 1865. w. .1. OOWItfG. .Kdttor. Despairing, The failure of Johnson to do anything to arrest Sherman’s march toward Richmond, has caused all the rebel sympathizers in the North to become very much down in the mouth. Their despairing wails have been given to the public,— amongst them that of the Washington correspondent of the New York World. They have found out that Sherman does not let any obstacles, real or imaginary, stray him in the execution of his duty. He has now an army so overpowering in numbers, discipline, courage, and prestige that he’is certain to sweep from his pathway all obstacles. His objective point, as it. is known, is Richmond, the capitol of the Rebel Confederacy. When he gets thence Lee will have to move. Sherman’s campaign is constantly spoken of in the rebel organs as though it had been a mere march through an enemy’s country, accompanied by no permanent results* Nothing could be more delusive than this.
