On the Mrsry be u stiU in the foil -igor and wom of manly maturity. Abrahsm Lincoln wa born in Hardin T. Kentucky. February 12. 1809. "ow 51 year, old. He i. re probably of the race of the Massachusetts Lincoln, though his parents were of Qua ker stock, that migrated from PennsTla- nia to Virginia, whence his grandfather remorea in i;ui-Z to Kentucky, and was there surprised and killed by Indians while at work on his clearing. Like most pioneers, he left hie' family poor : aa- .vr. w ana bis son aiso aiea prematurely, lear ing a widow and several children, inclu ding Abraham, then six years old. The family removed soon after to Southern Indiana, where Abraham' grew to the stature of six feet and some inches, bat enjoyed scarcely better opportunities for instruction than in Kentucky. Probably six months in all of the rudest sort of schooling comprehends the whole of his technical education. He was in turn a farm laborer, a common workman in sawmill, and a boatman on the Wahaeli and Mississippi rivers. Thus hard work and plenty of it, the rugged experiences of aspiring poverty, the wild sports and rude games of a newly and thinly peo pled forest region the education born of the log cabin, the rifle, the axe, and the plow, combined with the reflections of an original and vigorous mind, eager in the pursuit of knowledge by every available means, and developing a character of equal resource and firmness made him the man he has since proved himself. At 21, he pushed farther West into Illinois, which has for the labt thirty years been bis home, living always near and for some years past in Springfield, the State Capital. He worked on a farm as hired man his first year in Illinois ; the next year he was a clerk in a store ; then volunteered for the Black Hawk war, and was chosen a captain by his company ; the next year he was an un successful candidate for the Legislature ; ho was chosen the next, and served four sessions with eminent usefulness and stea- dilv increasing reputation ; studied law, meantime, and took his place at the bar ; was early recognized as a most effective and convincing advocate before the Peo ple of Whig principles and the Protective policy, and of their illustrious embodi ment, Henry Clay ; was a Whig candi date for Elector in nearly or quite every Presidential contest from 1836 to 1852 inclusive : was chosen to XXXth Con gress from the Central District of Illi nois in ls4o, ana served to its close, but was not a candidate for re-election ; and in 1849 measurably withdrew from poli tics and devoted himself to his profession until the Nebraska Iniquity of 1854 call ed him again into the political arena. He was the candidate of the Whigs for United States Senator before tho Legisla ture chosen that year, but they were not a majority of the body ; so he declined and urged his friends to support Judge Trum bull, the candidate of tho anti-Nebraska Democrats, who was thus elected. In the gallant and memorable Presi dential contest of 1856, Mr. Lincoln's name headed the Fremont Electoral Ticket of Illinois. In 1858, he was unanimously designated by the Republi can State Convention to succeed Mr. Douglas in the Senate, and thereupon canvassed tho State against Mr. D. with an ability in which logic, art, eloquence, and thoroneh good nature were alike conspicuous, and whicn gave nim a na tional reputation. Jlr. Uongias secured a rjredominance in the Legislature and was elected, though Mr. Lincoln had the lareer Donular vote, so that if the ques tion had been decided by the majority of the people, the champion of bquatter Sovereignty and ot mdinereuce as regaras Slavery extension would not now be a Senator from Illinois. Aa a Presidential candidate, Mr. Lin coin eniovs Dcculiar advantages. hile his position as a Republican renders him satisfactory to the most eealous member of the party, the moderation of his char acter, and trie conservative lenuencius ui hi mind, lonir aDDroved and well Known of all men in public life, commend him to every section of the Opposition. There ia no good reason why Americans and Whigs, and in short an wno are in spired rather by patriotism than by par tv fcelinEf. should not rally to his support Republicans and UonservaiiveB, mooo - . - who dread tbe extension oi oiavery, uu those who dread the progress of Admin istrative and Lecnslative Corruption, may be assured that in him both these evils will find a stern and immovable antago nist and an imoassable barrier. At the same time, as a Man of the People, rais ed by his own geniis and integrity from the humblest to the highest position, hav ing made for himself an honored name as a lawyer, an advocate, a popular orator, a statesman and a Man, the industrious and intelligent masses of the country mav well hail bis "nomination with a swelling tide of enthusiasm, of which the wild and prolonged outbursts at Chicago yesterday are the ntting prelude ana Be ginning. We need hardly say that the election of Mr. Lincoln, though it cannot be ac complished without arduous and persistent efforts, is eminently a thing that fn le done. The disruption of tbe Democratic party, now perhaps less likely to be re Daired than before hi nomination, the fact that he was put forward by one of tbe doubtful States, Illinois, and nomina ted In great measure by votes from two others, namely, Pennsylvania and New Jersey, tbe universal desire of the country to settle the vexations Slavery question in accordance with tlie views of the Fath ersall these are powerful in behalf of the Chicago ticket Bnt. at we said, ef fort most be made. The organisation must be perfected in every State, in eve WHITE CLOUD, KANSAS, THURSDAY, JUNE 28, 1860. ry connty, in every district Tracts and newspapers must be disseminated. Pub lic discussions must be held. The peo ple must be animated, enlightened, in spired with a sense of tbe solemn duty resting on all patriotic citizens. Thus the great victory may be achieved, and the'eoonlrv may' be redeemed from the Upernicious influences that are hurrying it to ruin. Americans I Republicans 1 Shall not all this be accomplished ? V. F. Tribune. Personal Habits of Abraham Lincoln. In his personal habits, Mr. Lincoln is as simple as a child. ' He loves a good dinner and eats with the appetite which goes with a great brain ; but his food is plain and nutritions. He never drinks intoxicating liquors of any sort, not even a glass of wine. He is not addicted to tobacco in any of its shapes. He never was accused of a licentious act in all his life. He never uses profane language. A friend says that once, when in a tow ering rage, in consequence of the efforts of certain parties to perpetrate a fraud on the State, he was heard to say, " They shan't do it, d n em ! but beyond an expre sion of that kind, his bitterest feelings never carry him. He never gambles ; we doubt if be ever indulges in any games of chance. He is particularly cautious about incurring pecuniary obligations for any purpose whatever ; and in debt, he is never content until the score is dis charged. We presume he owes no man a dollar. He never speculates. The rage for the sudden acquisition of wealth never took hold of him. His gains from his profession have been moderate, but sufficient for his purposes. While others have dreamed of gold, he has been in pur suit of knowledge. In all his dealings he has the reputation of being generous but exact, and, above all, religiously honest He would be a bold man who would say that Abraham Lincoln ever wronged any one out of a cent, or ever spent a dollar that he had not honestly earned. His struggles in early life have made him careful of money ; but bis gen erosity with his own is proverbial. He is a regular attendant upon religious wor ship, and though not a communicant, is a pewholder and liberal supporter of the Presbyterian Church in Springfield, to which Mrs. Lincoln belongs. He is a scrupulous teller of the truth too exact in his notions to suit the atmosphere of Washington as it now is. His enemies may sav that lie tells Black Republican lies ; bnt no roan ever charged that in a professional capacity, or a citizen dealing with his neighbors, ho would depart from the Scriptural command. At home he lives like a gentleman of modest means and simple tastes. A good sized bouse of wood, simply but tastetnlly iurnisiied, surrounded by trees and flowers, is his own, and there he lives at peace with himself, the idol of his family, and for bis honesty, ability and patriotism, the ad miration of his countrymen. If Mr. Lincoln is elected President he will carry bnt little that is ornamental to the White House. The country most accept his sincerity, his ability and his honesty, in the mold in which they are cast He will not be able to make as polite a bow as Frank Pierce, but he will not commence anew the agitation of the Slavery question by recommending to Contrress anv Kansas Nebraska bill. He may not preside at the Presidential din ners with the ease and grace which dis tineuish the " venerable public function ary," Mr. Buchanan ; but he will not create the necessity for a Lovoae torn mittee and the disgraceful revelations of Cornel iu8 Wendell. He will take to the Presidential chair just the qualities which the country now demands to save it from impending destruction ability that no man can question, firmness that nothing can overbear,- honesty that never has been impeached, and patriotism that never despairs.

Douglas should object to a juggling dodge because of its duplicity is truly refreshing! It has been his study day and night for the last six years to conceal his real position (if he has any, which no man can prove,) by ambiguous phrases, capable of two or more interpretations. - We have often thought if it became necessary for tbe Lit tle Giant in a public speech or a political resolution to refer to a cow, he would never write or speak the word as other men. o-o-w cow ; but would pnt it in this style : "the female quadruped which tuppltes the human family tntA lacteal fluid."

The Kansas City, Mo., Medical and Surgical Review, in an interesting article en the diseases to which emigrants to the Pike's Peak region are exposed, describes the following malady to which even the prudent are liable : " Mountain Fever" is a disease said to be, and doubtless is, peculiar to the Rocky Mountain region ; never occurring, ac cording to Dr. Ewing, at a less elevation than G000 or 7000 feet ; certain it is, we have never met with it in any other sec tion. In 1849 we treated a number of ca.es of this fever, occurring among the emigrants between the North fork of the Platte and the Sierra Nevada mountains; one of those cases, a well marked and vi olent one, in the person of an emigrant from this State, on Black's Fork of Green River, a few miles below Fort Bridger, U. T., the immediate field of observation in 1S57-8, by Dr. Bartha low, of the U. S. Army, ho has given an excellent description of this fever in his medical Topography of that section, published in tbe American Jonrnal of Medical Science, No. 78, April, 1860. For a description of the disease we will quote Barthalow, whose graphic account of the symptoms we fully endorse : " All cases were ushered in by a chill more or less decided, which lasted a va riable period. In the fobril stage the pulse was full, quick, frequent, but soft, and sometimes dicrotic ; skin hot, dry and mordicant ; tongue heavily furred in the center, red and dry at the edges and tip. There were present also, intense cophal algia ; aching in the back arl limbs ; suffusion of the eyes ; loathing of food, and sometimes nausea and vomit itg; delirium occurred in several cases during the exerbations. The remissions were characterized by debility, listless ness, and indisposition to the slightest exertion of body or miud, and a rdost painful aching of the limbs. Tbe coun tenance at these periods was vacant, dull, and tinged with yellow ; the pulse small, quick, irritable ; tbe skin moist, perspir ing, but sweating was never profuse. Diarrhoea was a frequent symptom ; the stools were thin, yellowish, watery, and offensive, occasionally greenish, dark brown, or .black. Trine was usually scanty, and deposited an abundant lateri tiotis sediment." The treatment found roost useful was, in the early stage, an emetic of ipecacu anha, followed if the bowels were costive by a mercurial cathartic, succeeded if it did not operate in five or six hours by a dose of castor oil or epsom salts, with spirits nitre dule, and mucilaginous drinks during the exacerbation. . As soon as a remission is attained, the free admission (Sve grains every two hours until thirty or forty grains are taken. ) of quinine will most generally suffice to break tbe attack. But in the treatment of this, as in all oth er diseases, occurring among miners and others whose diet is such as necessarily to induce a scorbutic tendency, let the practitioner and patient be warned against the free and protracted use of mercury ; frightful salivations, which tend still far ther to jeopardize the life of tbe patient, mnst and will result from a neglect of this precaution.

The telegraph announces the death, in New York, ou the 10th, of Samuel Gris wold Goodrich, who nnder the pseudo nym of Peter Parley, is very widely known. Mr. Goodrich was born in Ridgefield, Connecticut, Augtint 10, 1793. Early in life ho was engaged in the pub lishing business in Hartford. He visited Europe in 1824, and on his return settled lu lioston, where he commenced the pub lication of his Peter Parley series of ju venile books. From these, and from other books and periodicals which he wrote or edited, he derived not only a wide popularity, but a considerable in come. It is the merit of his juvenile works that they are reliable sources of knowl edge as well as funds of entertainment. They please their readers and at the same tune instruct. Much of what is really valuable in these works is undoubtedly due to the breadth and accuracy of the learning of the late Mr. Kittell, who was at the time of his death editor of the Boston Courier. Mr. K. did the work and Mr. G. received the honor and emolument in more than one instance.

This gigantic structure, the largest au dience room in the United State, owes its erection ta the liberality and welcome with which onr Chicago Republicans have hailed the occasion, which, ia Chicago, now within a few days hence is to usher ia (he great campaign of ISSO, by naming tbe gallant standard-bearers of onr par ty, who are destined in November to bear its colors to victory. The great Wigwam is not simply in tended for the sessions of the Convention. It will know many glorious rallies during the Summer and Fall to come. As it stands, it is the worthy object of pride to all our citizens, evert those of the oppo site politics recognising the added fame it will win for our city, in the credit it reflects npon our residents. The longest front of the building is oa Market street. Both fronts are simple and plain, yet neat and in keeping with the character and designs of the building. The entrances are broad and ample, and the area within admirably well adapted to meet the purposes of the edifice. Ad vantage has beeu taken of tbe height of grado on both streets, about ten feet, to give the amount of slope to the floor by a series of wide platforms to the space ia front of the stage. The platform is wida and deep, and thereon is to be held tba Republican National Convention of 1860, as the immense stage will accommodate from sir to seven hundred persons. It has on either end, as will be seen, atn-pler Committee rooms. In front of the plat form is enclosed space for the music. A judiciously arranged and' excellent feature of the Wigwam is tha immense gallery extending on three sides. Tho pitch of this ia such that from every part a perfect view of the speaker's stand can be gained. Tbe supports of tha edifice are ample enough to banish all suspicion: of insecurity, yet such as ta interpose the least possible interruption to seeing and hearing. The entire cost of the building ia be tween $5,000 and 80,000. It capacity has been fixed by good judges, based on careful estimates, at from ten to eleven thousand. Its interior was left rough and unplained, the wall back of the platform being the brick wall of tho adjoining store. Upon this rongh interior, the light, graceful and entirely successful handiwork of our Republican ladies bas been-bestowed, nntil when for the first time' the effect of gas light was added Saturday eve ning, tho effect was brilliant in the ex treme. Around the front of the gallery are the coat of arms of the States, and be tween them wreaths of evergreen. Tha pillars and supports have been painted white, and wreathed with evergreens, and from each to each have been twined dra peries in rc.l, white and blue, with artifi cial flowers and tuiuature national flags. Tbe pillars supporting the roof, which form a continuous row along the front of the platform, bear on one side to the au dience, bnsts of distinguished men, sap ported by figures of Atlas. The speak er's stand is a double dais or platform on) rollers, to be pushed back to tbe rear of the great stage when the Convention is in session, or brought forward when the great area in front is filled for a mass meeting. This latter was the case last evening, fhe dais bore elegant appointments of furniture and statuary on either side The chief decoration has justly been be stowed npon tbe stage. The brick wall at the rear has been painted aad divided into arched panels, in -which are eoloeeal statuary paintings. Over tha centre of tbe stage is suspended a large gilt ewgte. Altogther the Wigwam is a success in design and its carrying oat. Where Lincoln and Douglas First Saw Each Other. An anecdote is rela ted of Lincoln and Douglas, alike illus trative of the bitter personality of tba lat ter, and the cool, self-possession of tha former. It is well known that in early life Lincoln was, at one time, a grocer's clerk. In the campaign of 1858, when these two gentlemen were stumping to gether tba State of Illinois, Douglas in one of his speeches stated that tba first time he saw Lincoln he was behind a bar. When Lincoln arose to reply, ba referred ia a good natured manner to tha Senator's personal remarks, and inform ed the audience that tbe first Lima ha saw Douglas he was on the other siJa of tba bar. leaning against il for supjxirt !
