Serenade to the President.
Remarks of Messrs. Lincoln, Chase and
Clay.
Washington, Sept, 24.
A large crowd assembled at the Executive
mansion to-night on the occasion of a serenade
to President Lincoln. Having beeu cheered
and called for, lie nppeared at an upper win
dow. and spoke as follows:
Fellow-citizens—1 appear before you to do
little more than acknowledge the courtesy you
pay me, and to thank you for it. 1 have not
been distinctly informed why it is on this oc
casion you appear to do me this honor, though
1 suppose—interruptions—("Its because of
the proclamation"—cries of "good,” and ap
plause). I was about to say 1 suppose I un
derstand it. (Laughter—Voice, “That you
do; you thoroughly understand it.”) What I
did 1 did after very full deliberation and under
a very heavy and solemn sense of responsibili
ty. (Cries of "Good, God bless you,” and ap
plause.) 1 can only trust in God. 1 have
made no mistake. (Cries “No mistake; all
right; you’re made no mistake yet; go ahead,
your right.”) 1 shall make no attempt on
this occasion to sustain what I have done or
said by any comment. (Voices, “That’s un
necessary;” “We understand it.”) It is now
for tlie country and world to pass judgment on
it, and may lie to take action upon it. I will
say no more upon this subject. In my posi
tion I am environed with difficulties. A
voice, “That’s so.”) Yet they are scarcely so
great as the dillicultics of those who upon the
battle-field are endeavoring to purchase with
their blood and their lives the future happiness
and prosperity of this country. (Applause,
long continued.)
_Let us never forget that on the 14th and
17th days of this present month there have
been battles bravely, skillfully and successtully
fought. (Applause.) We do not yet know
the particulars. Let us be sure that in giving
praise to particular individuals, we do no in
justice to others. I only ask you at the con
clusion of these few remarks to remember to
give three hearty cheers to all good and brave
otlieers; men who fought those successful
battles.
Cheer after cheer was given when the Pres
ident bade them good-niggt and withdrew.
The procession then removed to the resi
'•' **v« «»» \ uiisc. .aiu i in uig cuvcrcu
he appeared upon tlie stops. Several voices
called tor gaslight, to which request lie said he
was afraid all the light the assembly could
have this evening would lie the light reflected
from the great act of the President. (Cheers.)
He understood they had just paid their respects
to tlie Chief Magistrate ol'the Republic, and to
thank him for having isued a proclamation
Which will find a response in the hearts of the
American people.
No one, he said, can rejoice more since we
rely in the belief that the judgement you have
expressed w ill ho the judgement of the entire
people of tlie 1’. S. (Cries of “yes,” and ap
plause.) 1 am better accustomed to work than
to speak. 1 love acts better than words.—
(Voices—“That’s so; that you do you’ve
shown.) Hut Dothing lias given me more sin
cere pleasure than to say amen to this last
great act of the Chief Magistrate. (To tlie
amen there was a warm and spontaneous
response by tlie crowd.) It is tlie dawn of a
new era. and although the act was performed
from an imperative sense of duty, qualified by
a military emergency which gave him power
to perform it. it is nevertheless, though bap
tised in blood, an act of humanity and justice.
Latest generations will celebrate it. (A voice
—“The whole world.”) Yes, said Secretary
Chase, the whole world will pay honor to the
Ilian w ho executed it. If it were necessary to
say another word, it is this: The tims has
come when all jealousies and divisoos, all Ms
sotialisms and aspirations should lie banished,
so that united we may all stand tlie integrity
of the republic. Let him have the most of
our approbation and applause, and confidence
who does the most, whether in the Held or in
the cabinet, for their country. Dismissing all
the past, let us look to the future, ati'd hence
forth let there lie no dissensions. Let u« do
nothing hut work for the country, which (iod
in his providence lias called u|k>ii us to do.
The above is merely tlie substance of the
Secretary’s remarks, which ware applauded
throughout.
Cassius M. Clay was the next speaker. In
tlie course of his remarks he expressed his
thankfulness that the time had come when the
line had lieen unmistakably drawn lietween
freedom ami slavery; ami when the principles
declared in ’70 were baldly enunciated, the
right was always expedient,and hence he was
gratified licyond utterance in the assurance of
the President's proclamation. The mail who
did not stand by it was a traitor; for the first
time there was a proclamation in behalf of the
down trodden humanity. It would Hud its
way all over the South, everywhere liberating
all the oppressed of lx it 11 races in this country.
He anticipated good effects trom it in Eu
rope, for no man there dare stand up in de
fence of slavery; but to make the proclamation
ftTi'l’ti VI* U’P llllist -ill u-nrL- Itv tituimiune nf nnr
armies now contending against an aristocracy
which linds sympathy in Europe among those
who hate a Itcpuhlicnn government. In the
conclusion of his remarks, which were some
what prolonged, he united in the prayer of
Horace Greeley, “God bless Abraham Lin
coln.” Attorney General Bates was also the
recipient of a serenade. He made a few re
marks expressive of his thanks for tlie compli
ment bestowed.

The convention again convened at 10 this

“North Carolina is said to have 72,000
men in the rebel army. The turpentine busi
ness must be at a low ebb.
j|TJL)oiibtless Commander Preble, recently
dismissed the service lor allowing an armed
vessel Hying the English flag to pass him and
go into Mobile, was fearful ot getting into
another Trent trap, lieferring to him, the
Boston Joarnal says:
“As an evidence of his loyalty anti patriot
ism we may mention that when the war broke
out he w as on the Pacific station, and one of
his first acts was to send home for publication
a history of the Flag of the United States,
which lie had written, with a request that the
proceeds of the sale should be devoted to the
Massachusetts Soldiers' Fund. His letters
were full of loyalty and patriotism, and he
chafed at being condemned to service on a
station where he could not meet the foes of
the government.
The Farmington Patriot states that
Messrs. H. Cutler, II. Belcher, and T. F. Bel
cher, of Farmington, and Messrs. Curtis and
Hawes, of New Sharon, sold to a Phidelphia
firm last week, one hundred thousand pounds
of w ool at tile unprecedented price of 05 cents
per Hi. Franklin county carries her wool to
a good market.
ZIF' The Hampshire Gazette tells the fol
lowing story:
“A delegate from lliis county to the Wor
cester Convention, last week, ‘ran against a
8turnn ’ while in the city on convent:on day.
He went into a barber’s shop in a great hurry
to get shaved, anil throwing off bis coat seated
himsclt in a big chair. Seeing a colored gen
tleman with a big shirt collar, coatless and
hat less, standing in front of the glass, he called
out to him to ‘ hurry up that lather.’ The
gentleman addressed replied that he‘gm *ssed he
would n tshave him to-day/and turned about
to his business. The real colored barbers be
gan to titter and roll their eyes, and when
their brother went out, they said to the dele
gate, * Maybe you don't know who that gen
tleman is. He is the Kev.Mr.Martin. the colored
clergyman of Boston! ’ That board come off.”
