EFFORTS TO ESTABLISH PEACE IN AMERICA. A great and important movement is now going* on in Great Britain and Ireland, says the Standard, in the shape of a peace address from the people of this country to the people of the United States. Thejad- dress appeals to the ties of ra-e and kindred, and asks if there has not bean enough of strife and bloodshed, of misery, and scfferil-ig P It goes on to say—"It is now time for you to pause, and after calmly reviewing all that you have accomplished, the distance which you have travelled from your well-known land narks, and the difficulties and dangers that are certainly be- fore yoa, to take counsel together as to the best means of restoring peace. It is in your hands to give pease to the American Continent. We appeal to you to re- cognise the duty which attaches to your high privilege, and to make peace with the Southern States, and we make this appeal in the name of religion, humanity, civilisation, and common justice." In 11 eland the ad- dress has met with hearty support from the people genor Jly—Protestant and Catholic alike—the clergy taking a very active part in promoting the object. The people of Dublin, Cork, Belfast, Limerick, Drog- heda, Queenstown, and the principal towns in Ire- land, are signing the address in immense numbers, In Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds, Huddersfield, York, Leicester, Prestqn, Stockport, Macclesfield, Chester, Congleton, Bury, Oldham, Bath, Stafford, Stoke-upon- Trent, and in many oth r towns in England and Scot- land, the number of signatures is daily increasing. If the signatures which the address is receiving in Lon- don may be taken as a sign of popularity, this move- ment is certainly popular. As the time is near at hand when the people of the United States will decide the question of peace or war for another four years, the friends of peace and huma,nity are anxious that the counsels of the people of Great Britain and Ireland, should be uttered in iavonr of peace, believ- ing that a people can best address a republican government and a republican multitude.
