Rumors of Propositions for Peace.


October 1862

From The Missouri Democrat,Wednesday, October 1, 1862.


What the Rebels Propose to Give us.

NEW YORK, September 30.—The Washington correspondent of the Philadelphia Inquirer says it is rumored the reason for the existing quietude of the armies on the Upper Potomac is that commissioners are on the way from the Confederate Congress to propose terms of peace, said to be something like the following:

The loyal States to take all the Territories of Missouri, Tennessee, Kentucky and Maryland, and make them free or slave States, as may best please them.

The cotton States to be permitted to have a Congress of their own to regulate their own domestic affairs, only in all other things to be again as one and inseparable people for defensive and offensive operations against other countries.

To be a unity in all matters of postage and revenue service the same as heretofore, they pledging themselves to return all the Government property as they found it; they, in addition to a separate Congress to regulate their peculiar institutions, to be permitted Senators and Representatives in our Congress in such numbers as their free white population entitles them.
