The -two days work of tho Baltimore
Convention was well done. In the
choice language of one of our city ex
changes, "tho nomination for tho Pres
idency, made at Baltimore, wo beliovo
to be;tho formal record of tho settled
wish of a great majority of tho sup
porters of tho "Union. Tho choice of
Mr. Lincoln is one that has been made
with , singular deliberation and alterna
tions of feoling. It was almost tho
universal expression two years ago,
when ho had but fairly completed his
first year of office, that thoro should
bo no change at the end of his term.
The early part of 18G3, a season long
tbibe remembered for tho thick gloom
which overspread both political and
military affairs, brought with it such
d degree of dissatisfaction with tho
President, that at that very timo his
nomination might have been difficult,
to say nothing of his election. But
from' .the summer of last year, a period
marked. both by renewed hopo in tho
conduct of tho war and by a fuller
B'cnso of the dangerous character of
tho opposition, tho public appreciation
of. Mr. Lincoln's services and qualities,
nnd tho general approval of his course,
have steadily increased. At this mo
mont, aa the' observation of anybody
can tell him, tho feeling partakes o
tho character of enthusiasm no mean
compliment to tho political leader wio.
has had to conduct a nation's affaire
during threo'ycars of war.
tt"(Vo speak of tho judgment passed
by tho public upon Mr. Lincoln's offi
cial career as singularly deliberate, bo
oauso tho course of its formation ex
hibits bo clearly tho balancing and re
vision of opinions. Tho country early
discovered and admired his sagacity,
his patience, his caution and his firm
hold upon the great objects of this
contest ' In a period of depression it
construed his caution into irresolution,
nnu,,forgot that tho most sagacious
counsels may not at onco command
success. But these hasty judgments
were reversed, as timo and events vin
dicated tho wisdom of tho President's
action j and while it may bo that no
two persons would agroo in their esti
mates of every part of his carcor, tho
great majority now feel that upon tho
wlfqio Abraham Lincoln is tho man for
thpjUmo. This is tho point upon which
tho'public mind has settled after such
vicissitudes as wo have noted; this is
tho result of thrco years experience,
nnd, it is a result which does honor to
tho sound sense and discernment of
In, proposing to strengthen tho pre
sent5 assignment of office by nominat
ing Andrew Johnson, of Tennessee, for
Vice President, the convention also de
cided ' wisely. This choice 'was not
merely the deserved tribute of respect
antVgrntitudo to a patriot who resisted
every tie of party and of locality which
seemed to link his fortunes with tho
secession movement, and put every
thing at stnko for his country,

It is a remarkable) instanco of a river,
running through 'and watering n long
strip of woods. From each sido of the
waidland a Hat surface extends for
about a half a mile. This is nearly
always overflowed, and becomes an im
passablo morass. It is only when the
river is very low that men can safely
walk upon tho ground bordering it.
On these fiat surfaces there is not a
solitary tree. They aro bare and any
thing moving upon them can easily be
discerned. From tho border of theso
plains, hills, in somo cases two or three
hundred feet high, abruptly rise.
They aro covered with thick woods,
and are so steep that wagons cannot
bo hauled directly up their faco. The
few roads go down them diagonally to
the bridges, across the swamp and riv
er. This Chickahominy valley, ono of
the strongest in America, is tho outer
defence of Richmond. From tho top
of the hills on tho ono sido, across the
swamp to the hill-tops on tho other
side, the distance varies from a mile to
a mile and a half. The ordinary
twelve-pound rilled Napoleon gun can
just about throw a shell from one hill
top to the other. From the Fredericks
burg railroad crossing down to Now
Bridge, a distance of eight miles, the
Confederate works aro all along tho
hills on its southern border.
