as-we' now fl deeply, jarned ourselves,
to ti~aie howihey ever doubt him on a
ny' word bdit hii own; a'id espeefally on
that of his opponenti. As to his devotion
to tht- Union.; lhin was he not devioed to
it?-and 4ben diiore so, ihai iWhile con

and sagacity which d'tictated it. Recent'
letters from tr&e friends in va'rious parts of
