Hayne's Tribute to Webster.
Ex-Governor Foot, of MisHissinni, is

Gov. says : ... ,
After this lntercitiuir .reciul , had
closed, I veptured to refer to the' great
oratorical contest liff'tweeii liiiuself and
Mr. Webster, in the 5s utiyuiil Senate,
now n'pHrly half a ccnturv ajo, and sck
ed him what he, thought of Mr.' Weh
ster's powers ns a 'speaker.'., flv at once
answered that lie supposed pun, upon
ttie whole, to be the' most consummate
orator of either ancient or modern times;
that his ability as a reaso'ner, he ' was
confident, had never been exceeded J th at
his imagination ' was as fertile and rig
orous as that of Milton or Honier; that
his humor was both exqoJsite and abun
dant; that his knowledge was unlimited;
that he had the most happy command of
his temper at, all times, ana that on cer
tian creat occasions, he had excelled H
the speakers that had ever lived, not
excepting either Demosthenes or Ulcere
then asked him i what' Ae thonght of
Mr. Webster's manner?- He replied that
it was always grand and impressive; .
that he iiad never heard bim utter a
word in a careless or vulgar style;- that
he seemed never to forget his own - dig
nity, or to.be unmindful u thei charac
ter , and feelings .of Others; and ' that,
wben thoroughly excited, the isuulirae
grandeur of his thoughts and language
derived great, additional ; potency from
bis noble aud tout-moving er-iuiciatiou,
and his few, but impressive gestures. I
thensaid to Lirn: 'iJut, General I lay he,
every on' in the South admired your
speeches on the occasiou to which you
have" referred, niore than they did those
bf Webster; and it is said that General
Jackson was so much delighted with the
first of your speeches in the Senate that
he'bad it printed on. satin for distribu-
tibn anioug his friends at a distance.
V as this so? io which ne repiieu: "I
beliet e this to have beet, true; the peo
ple 6f the South 'generally approved my
spe-ch,' because thc believed that I had
been1' defending in it their own local in

mired it 'because he thought that I had
successfully vindicated the" Democratic
enustytd tho support of wbich- his- owrf

that in a few! months thereafter, "wlieh

An Incident in the Life of Abraham Lincoln.
Strangely enough the. murder of Mausf-
field T. al worth, by .bis sons recalls
fhe story of Abraham Lincoln's duel.
The mother " of Frank W'alvrorth . is
the daughter of' Col. John T. . Hardin,
who saved Mr. Lincoln from the.' re
morse which would havti overshadowed
his li'e if he bad killed Gen. Shields..
Col. Ifardiu was a prominent Whig m
htican, and was esteemed the ''bravest-;1,
man iu Illinois.' H was killed at tho
battle of Bueua Vista,' aud his death
fairly earned the distinction, that his ad
miring friends had given him while y-
lng. Mr. Lincoln was, bis jutimate
tnend, and botp men were, gitted w tUi
a large ' sen bo of bumvr. ' which they
turned to good account,., ' ",' '. (
' The 1 hostile . meeting "between ' 3Ir.
Lincoln' abd Gen! Shields was brought
about in this way!;' 'A , witty .young lady
wrote 'a communication for one of. the
Sprinfield papers,, in ' which there were
several passages' which the Geueral was
pleased to consider as. personally offen
sive. " lie forthwith went to the news
paper oflice, and demanded the name of
the correi p. indent, and, this being refus
ed, Tie gave .' the editor three days h
which to make up his mind, , either to
refer bim to the writer or, take a whip
ping himself. The poor man was greut-.
ly distressed.' ' lie did not like . to $
guilty of the uiigaUant, aat of betraying
bis lady correspondent, and he did not
care to have alight with Gen.' Shields,
whoi was a much stronger man. , In this
dilemma.' he came to .Mr, Lincoln and
told him of his trouble, Tlie ' lawyer
took tho matter into' consideration, but
he could liiink ot no stratagem, fi
relief of his friend. "At. last,.h'e

Gen. Shield knew bttjn'.thuB bo come

lie was at thai time 'a great,' long-arm-cd,
