Helen Brewster's " Situation." BY AMY RANDOLPH. The solitary little brown thrash in the wicker cage in the window chirped faintly in the chill brightness of the November morn ing, as though, poor fellow, he knew that these bleak sunbeams irradiated a narrow attic chamber, and that his young mistress was alone and penniless in the world, as she' sat before the rusty, tireless grate, with a faded crimson shawl wrapped about her shoulders, and a newspaper lying in her lap. Or per haps he meant to cheer her up a little she needed it enough, Heaven knew. She was a pretty girl, slender and straight featured, with dark grey eyes, verging on vio let, and soft bands of hair, glossy and shining as a ripe chestnut, when first it burst through the husk. To be sure her cheek was a little pale, but fresh, and dotted with a capricious little dimple, while her mouth was red as a wild strawberry. Yes, it was a very sweet face and there wasan indeeribajjle shadow of resolute courage- in every'feature, as if she might battle long with the world without bating either heart or hope. " Wanted, a Situation '." sh read out half aloud, from the teeming columns of the great daily paper. " 0, dear ! that's just what I want myself ! Only thirty cents left in this poor silk purse no more embroidery to be had, and nothing left in my slender wardrobe to dispose oft I'd like-to-inow what en earth I'm going to do?" The paper slipped to her feet ; she stooped and picked it up, with a comical arch of her pretty eyebrows. "To think how many people there are wanjing' arid being 'wanted' in this large Rajbel of a city 1 How many of them are in as poverty-stricken plight as I, I wonder. "Ah! I never looked forward to this day, in the sweet old times, ere death had taken home aad friends away. I don't feel like the same girl," she added, dashing away the tear that sparkled on the edge o( her loug eye lashes. "I could not laugh and sing now as 1 1 used to. I am sure I could not play with any true man's heart now, as I toyed with Philip i Secor's once 1 could not reject an honest, earnest love now, as I threw it away in those days! Ah, I have grown wiser and sadder now, when it is all too late to call back the past. Am I crying? Poh, tears are a for bidden luxury. Where are these advertise ments?" "'Wanted, a Governess!' No, that wouldn't suit me at all or rather, I should not suit the prim, precise matron, wio, I'm sure, penned that paragraph. The multipli cation table would drive me crazy, and I have not the least idea about cube root besides I don t know any hi uslc,"Tut simple ballads ; nor any drawing but my own wild sketches. That won't do! 'A Good Cook.' This might possibly keep me from starving, if I was versed in roasting pheasants and stirring spiced sauces but I am nbT"vW anted, a Housemaid.' I don't think I should fill that position with credit to myself, or satisfaction to my employer. 'Sewing' Better have written it 'slow starvation' at once! Some thing I must do, or else die! and yqttt- f " jf . Suddenly her eyes fell on a new para graph : "Wanted a Hottsekeepeb, to 'take the charge of a gentleman's household one who understaidsy-and will. mi ud her own business. Apply ,for two days,iit No. , street." "There is a gleam of hope!" she exclaim ed, naively. ' I think I could keep the do mestic wheels revolving, and I am sure I could mind my own business. I will try, at least anything for a home." She arose and hurriedly adjusted her hair before the distorted little looking glass, tying; on the coarse straw bonnet, whose faded strings told' so plainly of genteel poverty, with a ner vous, trembling hand. "I am afraid they will think me too young," she thought, folding the crimson shawl more closely around her slender form. "If I could improvise a few wrinkles, and a gray hair or two! Yet for my own part, I can't see why a twenty year old housekeeper isn't as good as a sixty year one! Now, then, Brownie!" she apostrophized the inmate of the wicker cage, "keep up your spirits, and may be I'll bring you home a little seed and a bit of sugar. Who knows but that the people in street won't object to their little housekeeper's bringing her bird and won't that be nice, Brownie?" J"" ntHwititf Tbe thrush cocked up his eye at his mis tress and gave his head a little, knowing toss, l as tnougn ne unaerstoou every word sne spoke to him, and Helen I'rewstor went cour ageously forth to do battle with thu. great, cruel el world. m , otoI hi Rhmc :froe. - i " : : ' - RAVENNA, O., WEDjNES Her cheeks were pinker, than carnations, and her eyes fnll of liquid sparkle in the keen November wind, ere she rearjhed the stately brown stone mansion to which her footsteDs were directed. ' Yet -there was a timid-flatter at her heart, as "she slowly to- cended'the broad flight of steps, and made i her errand known to the solemn 'footman at the door. " Master '11 see you, I suppose," said this; important individual, rather ungraciously. "Walk into the dinm' room, Miss, if you nlease. i Itseemed-as if he had hardlv been gone a moment, ere the door opened, and a tall, dark whiskered gentleman entered. He did not speak, and Helen hardly dared lift her eyes from the floor ; yet she felt that he jvas re garding her with an inquiring look. ' "I I called about the situation of house keeper, sir," she faltered, feeling the hot blood mount to the very roots of her hair. "I fear you will think me ratht-T young, but I think I can give satisfaction, if .if " She paused with achoking seusataon at her throat; yet he spoke no word lo help her out with the unfinished sentence, and she resumed: "I would be content with very small wages 1 1 want is a home, for I am very poor, and " She broke down again poor little fright ened Helen. It certainly wasn't a very dig nified proceeding for a housekeeper elect to burst out crying, but Helen couldn't help it. " Helen i It was but one word, spoken in strangely soft accents yet what a throng of old fancies, half-forgotten memories it brought back to her ! She started up, looking wildly up into the face which she had as yet scarcely seen. One glance was all sufficient, and she buried her face in her hands. " Ob, Philip, I never know I did not dream " " I know it, Helen ! This is as much of a . surprise to me as it can be. to you," he said, ; gently drawing away her hands. "Look up, my first love 1 You are poor let me share my wealth with you; you are homeless my home shall be yours ! I will engage you as my housekeeper, only it must be on condition that you are my wife also ! Oh, Helen, do not break.my heart for the second time ! If you knew the years I have loved you, and sought for you !" She only lifted her tear-bright eyes to his face, but there was something in their dewy shine from which he knew she would accept the "situation.'' And Brownie, in a new gilded cage, now sings his sweetest melodies in the perfumed quiet of Mrs. Philip Secor's boudoir ! For the Poriaxe county Democrat. THE PRESIDENCY. We are pow rapidly approaching the close of the third year of the Rebellion, and with the great questions which have arisen during its progress, comes the' duty of choosing an Executive, Chief to guide us on through our great struggle for national existence. In examining the claims of the many tal ented men whose qualifications are brought before the people, by their respective friends and adherents, it becomes our first duty to throw aside the claims of party, or of indi viduals, and look solely to the best interests of the American people. It may be easy for us to say that we require, at our national helm, a true patriot, a man possessing great native Sagacity, honesty, and integrity of purpose, coupled cith experience, and the ability to make good use of his qualifications ; but it may not be so easy to find a man possessing all these. That Abraham Lincoln possesses in a rare degree a maioritv of them, his acts for the w tbrea ..,. fuUv demonstrate. whatever difference of opinion mav exist among his countrymen, as to the merit ot de merit of certain measures of his administra tion, yet, as a whole, they have received the approbation of the people, and a large major ity pronounce them masterly throughout. If the wishes and interests of the great mass of the people are to bo consulted in the coming canvass, there can be no doubt that Abraham Lincoln will be bis own successor ; but if in triguing politicians, and those who are seeking place and power, regardless of the conse quences, are to govern, the result will cer tainly be otherwise. . . a f If it "be claimed that there are others pos sessing equal, if not more executive ability than Mr. Lincoln, it would ill become a great and generous people to sejt him aside to grat ify the ambition of a political aspirant ; for by the re-election of Mr. Lincoln we should not only endorse his administrative measures, but wo should show to the world and espe cially to those in rebellion that it wr.s our determination that they should beeome the permanent policy of -the nation. Amidst the general despondency and gloom which now encircles the leaders of the rebel lion, if there be a single,.ray of light upon their downward course, it is in the-hope that the successor of President Lincoln will be more lenient,;or friendly to their cause; or at least, that the confusion incident to a change of administration will give them an opportu nity to revive from their exhaustion. This is evident from the tone of the leading organs of the rebel government. The Richmond Ex aminer of recent date, after commenting at length upon the general weakness and desti tution of their people, endeavors to brighten the sad picture, as follows : "Lincoln's term draws rapidly to a close," and " my change urili be beneficial to ihe South, Lincoln and his party are so irrevocably committed to, and so indissolubly linked with, the continuance of the war, that we can hope for no peace from them, save by utter exhaustion of the means of prosecuting it." The italics are my own. Surely, if . there were no other reason for the re-election of Mr. Lincoln, this well grounded hope of the rebels is a sufficient one. During the year which has just closed the President's Emancipation Proclamation has been on trial. Its history is surprising. Let the leader contrast it with the first two years of the rebellion, both of which were disas trous to our cause. A loyal and generous people will not hesitate to give the credit tor our signal success to him who struck the first fatal blow to the existence of the rebellion, nor will they fail to reward him with theit confidence and support. Who is better qual ified to curry out tho greatest political meas ures of the nineteenth century than their author ? Tho American people are fat becoming convinced that Abraham Lincoln is one of the best, if not the best man in the nation, and the one best calculated to bring our national struggle to a successful termination.

THE PBESldENT, The pamphlet entitled "The next Presiden tial election," which is being widely distri buted under Congressidnal franks, announces j that the political campaign of 1864 has open ed. Anrt-Tiow that it has begun, it is desira ble, in every view, that it be ended as soon as possible by the nomination. The Union inon of the-colmtry will naturaliy wish to know at the earliest moment who is to carry their standard, that they may be able to devote all their time and force to the prosecution of the war and the restoration of the Union, instead of wasting them in personal squabbles among themselves. Ji 1 - il ,i . ... .. , r .... 1 Obviously in the midst of a war which, begun amidst the sneers and skepticism of foreign governments, and the sad doubt and fear of true men at home, has yet advanced to. a near prospect oF fiual victory, it would be a great moral advantage to retain, before all the world, the same general front; to say, on the one hand, to the rebels, that the ter- j rible experience of the three years past will 1 be the experience of the four or five to come, j j if they do uot yield, and to the world at large j I that the people of the U mted States are steadily bent upon the original purpose of the wrt and by every legitimate means what ever, inflexibly' rhean ta restore the Union and maintain the Government. If, indeed, the condition of pHhlic affairs were different; if our military lines were marked by disasters; if the rebellion had evidently strengthened itself; if there were a reasonahle expectation that the Government might be overthrown; if trade were prostrated or industry para lysed; if we had been ov ertaken by crushing financial calamity; if there were nn fair pros pect of recruiting our armies with veterans and the best of new men; if the measures of the. Government at home had been such as to creato a powerful and threatening opposi- I tion, or had been unfaithful to human liberty; i in a word, if there were not a general convic j tion deep down in the hearts of the people j that, allowing for all faults and mistakes, and j weaknesses, from which no men and no ad j ministration can be free : yet, nnder all the ; circumstances, military, social and political, j public affairs have been upon tho whole, and certainly so far as the President is concerned, ' sagaciously and honestly conducted, then a change in the head ot the Government would be not only wise, but it would be inevitable. That the conduct of the war has been up on the whole satisfactory is evident from the fact, that the political struggle is not really between the Administration and the Opposi tion, but among the Union men themselves. No loyal Union man proposes a serious change in the resent policy, and therefore a change of President is advocated upon theo- retical grounds. But is this a time for per- sonal preferences and theories? The pam phlet of which we spoke in the beginning of this article argues warmly, for instance, al though not very ably, against a second Presi dential term, and fortifies its position by the advicerof Washington and Jackson, each of whom were twice elected. But why were they so? Simply because the people pre- l ferred them to any other candidates. So in ; many of tho States the same Governor has I been re-elected for' inatiy consecutive years, j because of the popular satisfaction with tho ! man aud his services. Is not that liberty of choice of the very essence of a free government?- Is it not, as a rule, better that a rep resentative, who really represents the feelings of his constituency should be' sent for many terms to Congress than that an inexperienced person- .should be sent every two years? The biennial election maybe, and often justly is, the declaration of entire satisfaction with the service of the representative. It would certainly be a remarkable exception in the practice of a popular system if the represent ative must, of necessity, be displaced. The doctrine of rotation in office is the result of a misapprehension of a popular government. No State, or city, or nation, or village would be necessarily better ordered, because the au thorities were changed every month or every year. It is the regular freqnency of elections which is the characteristic safeguard of our system. The object of the election is to al low the people to choose the man who best pleases them, But to make him ineligible after one term is to defeat that object, and compel them to adopt one who is not their preference. It is in effect to say either that a man who has been proved by experience to be fit for his office shall not continue to hold it, which is absurd ; or else that he can not safely be entrusted with it for more than one j term, wliipn. is to assert that men are not honest enojugh to make our system practica ble. Rotation in office is the doctrine of pol iticians whp wish to have the best places, not of the petjipla who wish to have the best - i V 011 A suniEs, The pamphlet in question urges its plea upon the ground that if a President be eligi tile tor more man one term ne win use mc enormous patronage oi his office to secure another nomination. Bat it is very clear that to limit the term ia not to prevent his corrupt use of patronage. He will, in tlutt case, if inclined tp abuse his power, merely turn his energies to securing the succession to the favorite of his party. And the objection lies against vesting patronage in any office whatever, because, if a President may use his patronage to secure a nomination, a Secretary may use his to defeat the President. Take, for instance, the case of two conspicuous pub lie men at this moment, upon the honorable character of each of whom no aspersion had been cast, even by implication, before the ap pearance of this pamphlet we mean Mr. Lincoln, the President, and Mr. Chase, the Secretary of the Treasury. Each of them wields enormous patronage. The President, according to the pamphlet, should not be eli gible for two terms lust he should misuse his patronage. Very well. And the Secretary of the Treasury ? If the.- reasoning be sound, he should not be eligible at all lest he should misuse his. Is it proposed that no officer who commands patronage shall be eli gible to the Presidency? As a fact, however, the President is eligible for two teams ; and this pamphlet wisely anonymous therefore suggests that, if Mr. Lincoln can so wield his patronage at this time as to secure his re-election, it will be much easier for him, with half a million of soldiers and enormous treasures at his com mand, to have himself re-elected from term : to term through his natural life I - The an- thor has spared us the-necessity of the reiiiic- 'toad absurdum. t ar he is speaking of Mr. twincoin ; ana unless we Have entirely misap prehended the impression he has made upon the people, it would be as easy to persuade them to elect Mr. Vallandigham President as to believe Mr. Lincoln to bo a new Aaron ; Burr. . The other argument against the re-nomination of the President is not theoretical, but practical; it is, that the people are mortified, humbled, and disappointed by the duration of the war, for Which, says the pamphlet, nothing but the vacillating policy of the Pres ident is responsible. Yet, whoever will de liberately picture to himself the condition of the country and of the publie mind at the beginning of the war; the utter lack of gen eral belief that there was to be a war ; the want of an army and a navy; the :ndiffen;nce and doubt of tbe -Democratic opposition at the North; the want of a sentiment of na tionality; the qnestion as to the coercive! power of the Government; the political and social sympathy with the rebels ; the hatred of abolitionism, and the careful excuse of men who said thny were willing to maintain the Union but not to touch slavery; the empty treasury; the universal scorn and jeal ousy of the Western European Powers ; the long demoralization of the public mind, which had been carefully wrought by Calhoun and his political school, which had so long controlled the Government, and so success fully that some men now in high office were willing to let the South "go whoever will recali all this will probably agree that the President had before him a task which required-infinite sagacity, patience and modera tion. His success would deDend unon his ability t interpret the real popular sentiment, and to distinguish, between enthusiasm and conviction. If he lagged, or went too fast, he would equally fall. Every step he took must seem wise to the great public mind, whether it pleased or displeased the ardent van of thinkers and talk rs, who are1 the ed ucators, but not the representatives, of public opinion. Elected as a Republican, knowu as the authcr of tho saying in reference to slavery and freedom in this country, "A house divided against itself can not'stand," supposed (as he was supposed at that time') to bo ruled J by the Sjcretarv of State,- who- had declared I the existence of the ifreuressible conflict, Mr. t Lincoln knew that whatever might he the love of the Union and even that was to be proved the hate of abolitionism was practi cally universal. His object was, it must have been, to have a party to sustain the Govern ment, and that party must he, so far as practi- j Kblei the undivided North. Senator Yulee, of Florida, had openly said in Washington what every body feared : " The North will have enough to do to take care of itself." Franklin Pierce had written to Jefferson Da- vis that tha war would be at the North. Had the President made a mistake, Yulee and Pierce would have been true prophets. Had the President said on the 16th April, 186L, "Slavery has attacked the Union, slavery is abolished,' the suspicious jealousy of the Op position would have burst into full cry : ' '''here ! we knew it. He takes advantage of a riot in South Carolina to overthrow the Union and plunge us into civil war." But the President, equal to his great office in the most solemn crisis of our history, said, sim ply, " The Union and Government muet be maintained by forces" and the country, with its party spirit paralyzed, cried, "Amen!" The President knew, what every thinking man knew, that the terrible light of war would illuminate the whole question of its origin and scope-. He knew that every gun and rifle and pistol was nuiore persuasive an- ti-elnvery orator than had ever been heard;, evi? ,Iouoi4 that every drop of the blood of sons and i horse thief to indulge in profane language. brothers and frieuds would wash dear a thou- 1 Tha kni which are thus collected are pre j .v. .x.j v Li- a j j f t ! served bv the W avdeu as trophies.

The re- be inevitable, but for which the country was not yet ready. Therefore, when General Fromont, one of these men, issued his order, the President said, " No, not yet. The poli cy must be general when it is adopted, and I must be the jndge of tbe time and tbe way." To General Hunter he said in substance : " I do not deny that it may become necessary to do what you have done, but I am the per son to order it.'' There were manv faithful men who, when theyheard his words, said, ! sadly, "Ho does not understand the case, and j wo are lost. T. here .were many laitniess men who thought, "The rebellion, is sure of success."

Do 'i you suppose they would debate the point a ' guarter of an hour if these soldiers were , - o r, t, -' -, i white? The Presnleoi can not rightfully do j what he honestly thinks the people ought to wish, but what he honestlv thinks ' they do ; , i i , ., wish, because only what they do wish will stand. There were men eriough who said, w hen General Fremont's order came, "Cer tainly; arm the slaves, and they will make short work of rebels." But within six months these same men were sighing for well-stocked plantations. The sagacity which distin guished between the furious but evanescent gust of excitement and enthusiasm and the steady trade-wind of principle is the very quality to be desired in a chief magistrate at this time ; and among all the prominent men in our history from the beginning none have i r j - ' v ' is --.. 1 ever shov,n the power .of understandn.g the popular mind so accurately as Mr. Lincoln, Nothing is more natural and more common than that an ardent man should in one breath declare that the peop' course to be pursued, the President because he yields only to a pres sure of the people. What should he yield to? ' And did Mr. Lincoln ever resist it? Did ' he ever lag behind it! The President can not ,reilt the nation as a general does an army, and make it subject to his arbitrary will ; and "ltllough the Constitution wisely intrusts dtir- ing war the most important powers to his discretion, that discretion consists in his wise estimate of the conviction aud desire of the public mind as to their exercise. From the beginning oJiistrmJhj,Presi- ncnc nns evidently been persuaded thatthis was a people's war; that, if thepeople were wise aud brave enough, they would save the Union and the Government; and if they were not, then that no leader could or ought to save them. Twenty months, ago he was without a party. The Copperheads hated him; ihe "Conservasive Republicans" thought him too fast; the "Radical Republicans" thought him too slow; "the War Democrats were looking for the chance of a return to political power. He held steadily upon his way. As he thought the country ready ho took each ad vancing step. He issued the preparatory proclamation. He lollowed it with the New Year's decree. He wrote tho Greeley letter, the Vallandigham tetter, the Springfield let ter, simple, plain, direct; letters which the heart of eyery man in the land interpreted, and, unlike any other instance in our political annals, every letter he wrote, every speech he I matte, brougtit him nearer to tha popular , , . . ,, Sv"Vl90 'fSfi'v, heart; so that now it is a little top late to call him "well-meaning," "incompetent," "a mere joker," because it is the general conviction that he is no man's puppet; that he listens respectfully to his Cabinet and then acts from his own convictions; that by his calm and cheerful temperament typhis srp insight, his practical sagacity, bis undaunted patience, his profound faith in the people and their cause, he is peculiarly fitted for his solemn and responsible office. Nor is it likely that the people who elected him.when he was compar atively unknown will discard him because, iu the fierce light of war which tries every qual ity and exposes every defect, he has steadily grown in popular lave and confidence. During Plot of Rebel Prisoners Frus trated. A Columbus dispatch of the 22d to the Cincinnati Gazette, gives the following par ticulars of the daring plot of tho rebel priso ners in tho Ohio Penitentiary to escape by overpowering and killing tho guard : A fw davs Kinr.p. Rns.il Dnkfi. wrin bnjt'riopn Rt. Camp Chase on parole for the past two or three weeks, expressed a desire to be taken l to the Penitentiary. He urged this with so much persistency, as to lead.Gov. Brough and Gen. Heint.elman to suspect that he had some other object in view, than simply a re turn to his old quarters In the prison. Pre cautionary measures were immediately adopt ed, aud the Governor very soon had the satis faction of knowing that his plans were successful. They unmasked a deep laid scheme, on the part of the rebel prisoners, to attempt an escape. The reb?l plan was briefly to overpower the guard,, when they were in the ball, as they have been permit-.. ted to be, and force their way through at j whatever cost. Thev had armed themsefves ! with knives, which tiny; hail stolen from, the frooi time to tiro and.

They had provided themselves with files, one of which was ground down so as to serve as a screw driver, and one of the men had nearly com pleted a wooden key, which could be used, ff necessary; but their plans were fori shtt and bloody work. Yesterday was the day set apart for the at tempt, but to the surprise of the prisoners they were not permitted their usual freedom. At breakfast they were taken to and from their cells with double guard. In the after noon they were taken ont singly and searched in the presence of the Warden and Governor. All bora the search with tolerable composure except one of tbe Morgan brothers, who lost bis temper. The guard, observing that Mor rgnn stood lightly upon one foot, suddenly jerked it up and pulled on tne hoot, wnen out dropped a file. This caused the Kentucky suit is, that hereafter they will be more close ly watched tban before. Governor Brough has ordered thai the ordinary prisoners be re moved entirely from the west wing of the building, and tho rebels placed in possession.

While he was in favor of Mr. Uhase as the nominee for T'resideril, in 1865, he vsrily be lieved Mr. Lincoln would be the man selected. Mr. Stevenson, the-yTJunsf'- and- eloquent Senator from Ross -Couhtr, made atbrilling speech in favor of the iaawiasfi'iafi' nomination of Abraham Lincoln, what do you want ot time in a matter of this kind, whan the sov ereign and loyal people of Ohio were -flooding us with demands that Lincoln should be onr standard-bearer?

The people and the soldiers in our brave and glo rious army demand the iraruediate re-nomhia-tion of Abraham Lincoln. Let us obey them by making such an expression to-nfght. Senator Ounckel, of Montgomery, coun seled delay for a week or ten days, that there might be a fuller attendance, ai d, therefore, a more forcible expression. He believed, how ever, we were not sent here to rnuko Presi dential nominations. Onr province is to make laws for tbet people of Ohio. He hoped Mem bers would not commit the great folly of making a nomination for the Presidency, Senator Eggloston in tha most earnest lan guage counseled a delay of a weelt or ten days. He did not believe that tho cause of Lincoln was suffering for want of action. . Senator J atuison, of Harrison, County, Kjvo, I believe, is a preacher, was in favor of Abra ham Lincoln. He believed that Providence had ordained him as the man for the emer gency. To keep this honest and able man in the Presidential ohaTr for another term, was the true policy to be punned by the Union party. He was ashamed to couf ess that he had once voted for ames liiichaDau, but hoped to be forgiven. Let us have the nom ination of Lincoln to-night. Senators Humpbreyvtll, Magiimis, Con noil, and others, expressed themselves in the like decided terms iu favor of the immediate expression of the opinion that Abraham Lin coln should be the nominee. Colonel Connell then offered' a resolution that " the soldier and loyal people of the State of Ohio are in favor of, and demand, the re nomination of Abraham Lincoln as ihe Union candidate for the Presidency." Still further discussion was elicited pro and con, but it was plain tot be seen that nothing could withataud tbe feeling in favor of Mr. Lincoln that it was the determination of members that he should be nominated at once. The Chairman then put the question on Senator Cornell's resolution, and it was unan imously carried the members, one arid all, rising to their feet, and giving three rousing cheers for Abraham Lincoln. Mr. Editor, these are the facts. They aru t your service. At the close of the caucus, a few gentlemen who seemed to think that Mr. Chase .had been discourteously used, expressed their sen timents pretty freely, but, in the main, they, too, acquiesced in the nomination of Mr. Lincoln. It was charged, too, that soniaay. members were absent, that, it was not a fair expression of the sense erf the Oeneral As- seinblv.
