H VTl'KOAT JAXCAKY S, IS OK By One Familiar With the Lire of the Martyr President. New York Times. The most interesting session which the Baptist Conference has held for many weeks was that, which was prin cipally devoted to the reading of a lec ture by Rev. Dr. N. W. Miner, entitled "Personal Reminiscences of Abraham Lincoln." Dr. Miner was a near neigh bor of the Martyred President for a number of years, and was an intimate and personal friend from April, 1855, until the death of the President. He announced in the beginning: of his lecture that the reminiscences were ail at first hand, and had never been pub lished. In April, lSo-, the speaker ivnted a house in Springfield near that of Mr. Lincoln. The two soon became inti mate. Mr. Lincoln had a great love lor the common people from whom he had sprung. "I have been riding with Lim in his carriage, at times during the war," said Dr. Miner, "when this trait of his character was profoundly brought out. We have passed (jencrals of the army and other high' functionaries, when he would simply wave his hand lightly, and say to me, 'That is Gen eral so-and-so, or Congressman so-and-so, but when we passed a soldier lie would take off his hat, rising slightly from his seat ami make :i low bow to the common private. A poor widow once came to me in my study with the request that I should write to Mr. Lincoln and ask him for the discharge of her son George from the army, her other son Phillip, being dtad. Richmond had fallen and the President was in that city. I told her I thought my writing would do no good then, as he could not stop in the midst of his duties to attend to the discharge of a poor boy. Rut she insisted that I t-hould make the effort, and I finally wrote to the President. Two days after the assassination I received a letter con taining the discharge of George. It was probably almost the last thing which the martyred President did. He was a thorough and consistent temperance man throughout, continued Dr. Miner. "He would neither touch liquor himself nor furnish it to others. After his nomination for the Presidency he was informed that a committee, .ap pointed by the National Convention, was coming to Springfield to notify him formally of the nomination. The Illi nois State Committee went to him and requested that for once he should waive his temperance views and furnish liquor on that occasion. They represented that u failure to do this might make him un popular. His answer was : 'Gwntlemen, you are old and valued friends and neighbers, and I would do anything that was right to serve you. but I cannot fur nish liquor to anybody in my house, even if I lose the election by refusing to do so.' " As a lawyer, the speaker said, Mr. Lincoln showed that it was possible for one of the profession to be a good man. He once told the Doctor that he had never undertaken a case unless he be lieved there was merit in it, arid he al ways discouraged parties from going to law, advising them to make up their dillerences, or to submit them to arbi tration. "A Democrat," continued Dr. Miner, "once said to me, 'IT tell you why I voted for Lincoln. 1 had some trouble with a neighbor, and I determined to go to law with him. When 1 got to Lin coln's office I found my opponent was already there and had stated his case. I told my side of the story, and Lincoln then said, 'You have a good ease to go to Court, but if you do you will both lose all your maney, and make your selves life-long enemies. Why don't you settle the matter right here ? We argued for some time without coming to an agreement, and finally Lincoln said, 'Well, I'm going to dinner. Try and settle it before I get back, and in order that you may not be disturbed, I'll lock the door.' He locked us in and left us there all the afternoon, but when he returned we had compromised our trouble. That's why I voted for Lin coln, although I am a Democrat' " The cordial relations after the begin ning of the war between Lincoln and J)ouglas whom he had defeated for the j Presidency was referred to by Dr. Miner as remarkable under the circum stances. The facts, he said, were related to him by Lincoln himself. It is well known that the President entered Wash ington in the disguise of a Highland Scotchman, on account of the threats which had been freely made to assassi nate him. He reached the city just at th break of day. "First man I met," said Lincoln to the speaker, "was Judge Douglas, who had been apprised of my coming. He greeted me warmly, grasp ing my hand and saving, 'Good morn ing Mr. President. You are my Presi dent -as well as the country's. I have come to offer my services to you. I know the rebel element and'the men you will have to deal with here better than you do,and whatever ability or influence I have is at your disposal.' " He went with Lincoln to the White House, and from that day to his deatii lie was the intimate adviser of the Presi dent. When the first call for 75,000 troops was issued, the prcclamation was shown to Douglas before it was made public, lie said to the President: "Yes; seventy-five thousand men will d- to begin with, but it will take a million to put down this rebellion.

Crocker informed him that here after a guard would constantly be sta tioned at his cell dor. He said:. "I do not anticipate that the prisoner will make any attempt at self-ilestruction, but it is my duty to guard against it. The prisoner is evidently badly broken in. I have noticed for the past ten day? that his self-assuance was gradu ally failing him, but he has an extra ordinary amount of hopefulness in his 'makeup.' To the very last act in the horible drama lie will hope for some thing to turn up and save him from the gallows. You can put it down that he fully comprehends his terrible situation. He does not prate about Providence and the Lord's care as he did in the past." Gen. Crocker made a prediction that the prisoner would gradually suc cumb to tear as the liual days draw nigh. He, as well as the other prison officials, are fairly of the opinion that the prisoner has been a sane nwi since he was confided to chir care. The Jic- jmblican &ad 7W of this city this morn ing editoriallv endorse the verdict in this' most remarkable trial as just, and predict that it will sooa be followed by the sentence of the judge, which after the usual delays incident to appeal, will ultimately be enforced.

Guiteau said to a reporter yesterday : "You can say to the American people that I have not given up hope. 1 will go to the Court in banc, and I am satisfied the Judges will give me a fair show for my life The Court will undoubtedly consider the question of jurisdiction, and that is the point I rely on for a new trial. have just received a letter from a very eminent lawyer in Baltimore, Judge Atkinson, who has kindly voulnteered to appear in my behalf before the Court in banc and argue the question of juris diction. I understand he is thoroughly ported on the subject. I wrote to him to come to my assistance." "Lo you have any fears that you will die on the scaffold V" asked tha repor ter "I am in the hands of the Lord," re plied the prisoner, "and I have no ap prehensions. Life is but a temporary state ; it is appointed to all men once to die, and no man will die before his ap pointed time. No man can say to-day that he will be alive to-morrow." "1 believe the jury have been innoc- ulated for stupidity," said the testy lawyer, "That may be," said his oppo nent, "but the bar and the Court are of the opinion that you have it in the natural way." "Should a man shave up and down?' asked Augustus. "That depends." re plied the barber. "When I shave you I always shave down." The emphasis on the last word nearly broke Augus tus' heart.
