Biograplikai Sketch of Abraham Lincoln.
From the Cblen6 Press and Tribune
Abraham Lincoln is d niitive of liardin
fcoiinty, Kentucky. He wa born on the
12tH day of February, 1808. His parents
were both from Virginia and wero ccr-
tiiuly ridt of tho first families. His pa-!
ternitl grandfather, Abraham Lincoln em
igrated from Rockingham county, Virgin
ia, to Kenbuokv, sbont 1781 or '2. where
n year or two later he was killed by In
dians, not in battle, but by stealth,, while
he was laborisg to open a farm in the
forest. ti ariecstors who wero respect
able members of tho Socioty of Friends,
wctit to Berks oounty, Pennsylvania.
Doscondants of the same Stock still reside
in (he eastern part of that State.
Mr. Lincoln's father at the death of.u
father, was but six years of age, und be
grew up literally without education. He
removed front Kentucky to what is now
Spencor oounty Indiana, in 1816. The
family reached tbeir new homo about the
timo the Sutt. was admitted ti(o the Union
Tho region in which they settled was
rude snd wild, and they endured for
some years, tho hard experience of a
frontier life, in which tho struggle with
nature for existcnoe and security is to be
"maintained only by constant vigihtnoo.
Dears, wolves and other wild rtnimuis
still infested the woods, and young Lin-1
coin acquired more skill in the use of the
rifle than knowledge of books. There
were institutions hers and there known
by the flattering denomination of 'schools,'
but no qualification was requi ed ot a
teaoher beyond "resdiri' ritin and cy
phorin'," as the vernaoular of the phrase
ran, at far as the rule of three. If a strag
gler supposed to understand Latin hap
pened to sojourn in the neighborhood, he
was looked upon as a wizard, and regard
ed with an awe suited to bo mysterious a
Hard work and plenty of it was the or
der of the day, varied, indeed, by ab oc
casional bear hunt, a not unfrequcnt bear
chase, or other wild sports. Of course
when young Lincoln came of age ho was
not a scholar. He could read and write,
and had. some knowledge of arithmetic
but that was about all; and as yet he had
but little ambition to know more of what
was to be found in books. His attain
ments otherwise were not to be despised.
He had grown to be six feet fsur inches
in stature, was aotive and athletic,' could
wield tho axe, direot the plow or use the
rifto. as well as the bcBt ofhis compeers,
und was fully up to all the mysteries of
prsrie farming, and fully inured to hard
ship tnd toil. Slnoo he arrived at age he
hsi not been to school. "Whatever his
acquirements are, they have been picked
up from time to time as opportunity oc
curred, or as the pressure of some exi
gence demanded. . , ; ;
At twenty-one lie removed to Illinois,
and passed the firot year in Maoon county
in active labor on a (arm, where be and a
follow laborer (named Hanks.) . SPLIT
THREE THOUSAND RAILS, in the
year 1830. It will be interesting to the:
millions before whom he is now placed as !
a oandidate for the highest office in the j
gift of a free peoplo, to know tbat he once
managed a fiilbout on iho Ohio river. The :
and 'dotes which he sometimes relates to
his friends, of his niaratime experiences
before the introduction of steam on the been in progress two days, and the cspi
Wesibrn rivers, are indescribably laugiia- jtal was full of alf manner of men. The

Then oiidS the Blackllnwk war. A ooaf
'pany of voluntiers was raised in New Sa
lem and the surrounding country, and
young Lincoln was elected capiam a
suocess Which, he Las sinoe said, gave !

enjoyed. He served with credit during
the campaign, and became popular. Re
turning to Sangamon county, he learned
the art of surveying,' and prosecuted that
profession until ihefinancUl crash of 1837
destroyed the value of real estate and ru
ined the business the result of which
was that young Lincoln's surveying appa- j
ratus was sold on execution by the slier-
iff. Nothing daunted by this turn! of ill-
luck he directed his attention to the lave, I
and borrowing a few books from a neigh
bor, which he took from tho office in the
evening nd returned in the morning, he
learned the rudiuienU of the profession in
which he has since became so distinguish
ed, by the light of afire lace.
About this lime the Whigs ofhis coun
ty conferred upon him a nomination lor
iho Legislature. He was siloceBsful in
this and three Succeeding elections, by
triumphant majorities. When a member
of the Legislature ho first gave indica
tions of his superior powers as a debater
and he inoreased, by .frequent praciice,
his natural faculty for- pubne speaking.
He improved industriously the opportu
nities that were here offered of self culti
vation. From the pdsition of a subaltern
in the ranks if the Whig party, a posi
tion that was appropriately assigned him
by his unaffected modesty and humble
pretensions, he soon became recognized
and acknowledged as a champion and a
leader, and his unvarying courtesy, good
nature and genial manners, united wilh
an utter disinterestedness and abnegation
of self, made him a universal favor i e.
During his legislative period ho contin
ued his law Studies, and removing to
Springfield, he opened an office and en
gaged actively in praciice. Business flow
ed in Upotl him, and he rose rapidly to
distinction in his profession. He displayed
remarkable ability as an advocate injury
trials, and many ofhis law arguments
were master-pieces of logical reasoning.
There was no refined artificiality in Ins
forensic efforts. They all bore the stamp
of masculine common sense; mid he had a
natural easy mode of illustration that maJe
the most obstruce subjects appear plain.
His success at the' bar, however, did not
withdraw his attention from politics. For
mnnv vear he was the' "wheel horae" of
the Whirr party of Illinois, and was on
the election ticket in several Presidential
campaigns. At such times he canvassed
the State with his usual vigor nod ability.
Ho was an ardent friend of Henry Clay,
ami pypHpiI himsnlf nnwerfullv in .his be-
half in 1 Oil, traversing the entiro State
of Illinois, and addressing tho public
meetings daily until near tho close of the
campaign, when becoming convinced that
his labors in that field would be Un avail
ing, he crossed over into Indiana, and con
tinued his effortg up to the day ofcleo
lion, 'fiie contest of that year in Illinois
was mainly on tho tai iff question. Mr.
Lincoln, on tho Whig side, and John Cal
houn, on tho Democratic side, were the
heads of tho o'pprfsing electoral tickets.
Calkouu, late of Nebraska, now dead, was
then iri the full vigor ofhis powers, nnd
was accounted the ablest dehalor of his
party. They sturripoil the State together,
or noaIy so, making speeches usually on
alternate days at each place, and each ad
dressing largo audiences at great length,
sometimes four hours together. Mr.
Lincoln, in these elaborate speeches,
evinced a thorough mastery of the princi
ples of political economy which underlie
the tariff question, nnd presented argu
ments in favor of the protective policy
with a power and conclusiveness rarely
equalled, rind at the same time in a man
ner so lucid and familiar and so well in
tcrxpercod wilh happy illustrations nnd
apposite anecdotes, as lo establish a rep
utation which he' has never since failed to
maintain, as the ablest leader in the Whig
and Republican, ranks in the great West.
In 184G, ho was eleoted to CongfahS,
and servdd out his term,- and would have
been re-elected had ho not declined to be
a candidate. He steadily and earnestly
opposed the annexation of Texas, and la
borod with all his powers in behalf of the
Wilmot Proviso. In the National Con
vetition of 1843, of which he was 6 mem
ber, he advocated the nomination of Gen
eral Taylor, and sustained thu nomination
by an aotive canvass in. Illinois and Indi
From 1849 to 1G51 MV. Lincoln' was
engaged assiduously in tho practice of his
profession, and being deeply immersed in
business, was beginning to' lose his inter
est in politics, when the scheming ambi
tion and groveling selfishness of an un
scrupulous aspirant to the Presidency
brought about ths repeal of the Missoari
Compromise. That act of baseness and
perfidy aroused the sleeping lion, and he
prepared tor new eaorts. He tnrow him
silf at once into the contest that followed,
and fought the battle of freedom on the
ground ofhis former oonfliats in Illinois
with mors than his aooustomed energy
and real. . Those who recolleot the tre
mendous battle fought in Illinois that ysr,
will award to Abraham Lincoln fully
three fpurthi of the ability snd unweary
ing labor which resulted in the mighty
victory which gave Illinois her first Re
publican Legislature, and plioed Lyman
Trumbull in the Senate of the United
States. ' The first and greatest debate of
that jearcame off between Lincoln and
Douglas at Springfield, during the pro
gress of the state fair, in October. We
remember the event as vividly as though
it transpired yesterday: and in view of
ihc prominence ' now given to the chief
actor in that exciting event, H cannot fail
to be interesting to all:
The affair came off on the fourth day
of October 1854. The Stale Pair bad
Nebraska bill had been pnsed on the pre
vious axnd ot May. Mr. Douglas had re
turned to Illinois to meet an outraged
constituency. He made a"- fragmentary
spe ch in Chicago the people filling up
eucu niiius in a peculiar anu goou Humor
ed way. ITe culled the people a mob
they called him a Towdy. The "mob"
i . i . i , . i i . ....
had the best of it, both then and at the
election which succeeded. The notoriety
of all these events had stirred Up the poli
tics of the State from bottom to top.
Hundreds of politicians had met at Spring
Gcld, expecting a tournament of an unu
sual character Douglas. Breese Kcern
er, Lincoln. Trumbull, Malleson, Yates,
Codding, John Calhoun, (of tho order of
the Candle Box,) John M. Palmer, the
whole house of the McConnslla, Sincrle
ton, (known to fame in the Mormon war,)
Thomas L. Harris and a host ol others.
Several speeches wero made before and
several after, but that was justly held to
be the event of the occasion.
We do not remember whether a chall
enge of debate passed between the friends
of the spankers or not, but there was a
perfectly amicable understanding between
Lincoln and Douglas, that the former
should speak two or three hours, and the
latter reply In just as muoh or just as lit
tlrj time' as he chose. Mr. Lincoln took
thestahdat two o'clock a large crowd
in attendance, and Mr. Douglas was seat
ed on a platform in front of the desk.
Hie first half hour of Mr. Lincoln's speech
was taken up with compliments to his
friend Judge Douglas, and dry allusions
to the political events of the past fow
years. His distinguished frieud Judge
Doughs had taken his seal, as solemn as
the Cook Lano ghost, evidently with the
design of not moving a muscle till it came
his turn to speak. The laughter provoked
by Lincoln's exordium, however, soon
began to make him uneasy; nnd when
Mr. Lincoln arrived at his (Douglas)
spech pronouncing the Missouri Com pi 0
mlse, a "sacred thing which no ruthless
hand would ever be reckle?j e&oazh to
disturb,' lib ft(5aitcrj Tiisnrr-faiirnOTTsrr
to remark, "A first-rate speech! I Ins
was the beginning of an amusing collo
quy. . '
Yes," continued Lincoln, ''So riffec-
tionnte was my friends regard for this
compromise line, that when Texas was
admitted into the Union, and it was found
that a strip extended north ol SO deg,
30 min.,' lie actually Introduced a bill ex
tending the line prohibiting slavery in the
northern edge of tho new State.
"And you voted agaiust the bill," said
"Precisely so,"' replied Lincoln; "I
was in favor ol running the line a great
leal further South."
"About this time." the speaker contin
ued, "my distinguished friend introduced
me to a particular friend of his, one David
Wilmot of Pennsylvania." Laughter.
'I thought," said Douglas "you would
find him congenial company."
"So I did," replied Lincoln. "I had
the pleasure Of voting for his proviso, in
one way and another, shout fbrty times.
It Was a Democratic measure then, I bo

Linoold "Well the priority of inven

to Judge Douglas for being the first to
discover it, ' . .- , , . . . , .
It would be impossible, in tbe so limits
to give an idea of the strength of Mr.
Lincoln's argum ent. We deem it by far
the ablest effort of the campaign from
whatever source. The occasion was a
great one, and the speakor was every way
equal to it. Tha eflect prdouocd on the
listeners watt magnetic.' No one who was
present will ever forget the power' and
voliemenoe of tbe following passage? -
"My distinguished inond says it is ah
neult to tho emigrants . to Kansas and
Nebraska to suppose they are nob able to
govern tucmsolves , , , We must not
slur over an argument of this kind be

must bo met and answerod. I admit that
the emigrant to Kansas and Nebraska is
competent to govern hmeelf, but' the
speakur rising lo his full height, " deny
his right to govern any other penon with
out t hat phuson's consnbt." The ap
plause which followed this triumphant re
filiation of a cunning falsehood, was but
an earnest of the victory at the polls
which followed just one month from that
When Mr. Lincoln had concluded, Mr.
Douglas strode hastily to the stand. As
usual he employed ten minutes in telling
how grossly he had been abused. Re
colleoting hinself be added, "though lu a
psrfectly courteous manner. He then de
voted half an hour to showing that it was
indispensably neceae&ry to California em

puted. Having established 1 1 1 if? promise
to his satisfaction, Mr.ltuuglai hunch
ed forth into an argument wholly apart
from the positions titkerrby Jlr.. Lincoln.
He had about hnK fini'liu at six o'clock
when an adjournment tijJt-a was effected.
The speaker insisted stfejious'y upon his
right toiresunie in the tvening, but we
believe the second part of that speech has
not been delivered to -thin day, After

became apprehensive tLat those men who

tle or nothing in common frith tbe tbcu

ouch a consumption, he went personally
to his friends, and by a strong persuasion
induced them to vote for Trumbull. He
thus secured, by an act of generous self
sacrifico; a triumph for the cause of right,
and an advocate of it on the floor of ihe
Senate, not inferior, in earnest zeal for
the principles of Republicanism, to any
member of that body.- ' ' 1 . '

was strongly adverse to that movement,
lie exerted himself for thu organisation
of the Republican forces in Illinois, and
attended the first Republican Convention

in May, 1856. His spocch in that
Convention was of ftu,rprising power and
eloquonce, and produced great effect. In

One hundred years sgo there was not
a single white man in Ulno, Kentucky,
Indiana, or Illinois Tern'loiies. Tkn,
what is now ihe mot flourisbihg part of
America was as little knowo as lb
country around the Mountains of ths
Moon. It was not tfhtil I7C3 that the
Hauler of Kenta. ky. the gallant and ad
venturous Boone, left hit home in Jvorib
Carolina to become the fjr.t settler of
Kentucky. The firm pioneer of Ohio did
not settle till twenty years after this time.
A hundred years sgd Canuda belonged to
France, and the wbolu population did not
"i'w "d a hlf of people. A
hundicd years ago ihe gnat Frederick of
Trussr whs performing those rent ex
ploits which hare made him immortal in
military nnnals, snd. wilh his little mon
archy, was sustaining a single. band-d
contest wiih Russia. Austria and Fiance,
'the three great powers of Europe combin

States were the most loyal part of the
British L'mpi.-e, and on the po'itiral hori

within a scoie of years thereafter establish

Many forget all the admonitions of ihei

to the mu'ahility of earthly thing; and
endeavor to persuade them to seek a home
in the skies; lest, when time shall destroy
their preiet habilatiori, the storms of just
wrath shall fall upon their defenceless
heads. While SWaitirig the hour wheri
the term of my sojoarninjr here shall ex
