Van Btuvii proceeded to say :
“He had information from a source
, which never c uid liave deceived him in
regard to the struggle np.#n which he was
entering. On the 3d of March. President
Lincoln, about to he swum into office,
found himself in the city of Washington,
having reacln d it in disguise [laughter]
covered with a Scotch cap, and wrapped
iu a blue cloth cloak, for the lirst lime in
the history nt this country, the President,
found Idinscli in the city of Washington.
[Lughter ami applause.] On the 81

when Rieliu.-'tid i< taken they will be sat
isf.eil id tber inability to contest with the
, gigantic resources of the loyal Stans. 1
will not believe I hut they will Consent, to
>ec this great model R public, starting
only in its carper, challenging the admira
tion of the world, and the hope and
j light, of freedom throughout the World,
strangled in its infancy. I believe, that
under those circumstances, they would
come into a Convention, that we could
agree to live together under the Constitu
tion us it is or inure distinctly defining
what ir is. And if they wold, then 1
know that I am in favor of so amending
the Constitution as to’let them go, saying
to them, in iho language of the gallant
Scott :—“ Wayward' mters, depart in
pea(e" [Applause.]
Mr. Van Boren continued :
“We are told that they can’t Jive, am)
in my judgment tile Sou hern people
ought not to live, under an Abolition
sway. [Loud applause.] I would nut
live Willi them if they would. They call

us that however you differ about, other
