What Rebels Expect from Copperheads

What the Rebels Expect from the Copperheads.
The editor of the British American, of Kingston, C.W., who was recently at Halifax, reports a conversation which he had there with the first officer of the rebel Tallahassee.  The rebel pirate stated:  “That the opinion was universal among his people, that the present campaign was the final one of the war   — the South only requiring to hold their own during the Presidential canvass at the North, which would ensure the success of the Copperhead candidate and immediate negotiations for peace on the basis of Southern independence.”
