But calm leflection followed npon tbe
first disappointment, and w declare, that
for ourselves, ibo nomination of Lincoln
was more areeablo intelligence than tlint
of Seward would liave boen. It is true,
both are of the schoo1 of tho Old Whigs,
but Lincoln stands clear in Lia cbaiacu-r,
while Mr. Seward has employed various
poliiioHl mnnccuvrcB, which, had we found
it necessary 10 vote for him, would have
allowed us to support him only under res
ervations. Even Mr, 1 incoln's enemies bear tbe
highest and most honorable testimony to
hia character. It is true, he is no great
and renowued Statesman, but we want no
celebrities we want a character a man
of tho old sterling Btamp a man who will
cleanse the Augoan stablo ot Presidon
tint corruptions, and who knows how to
exhibit a Biitf backbone to the Southern
aristocracy; in this direction we hope the
beat from I fncoln. r
On tho slavery question he occupies the
decided posili.m which the Republican
party assumed in the Philadelphia plat
form. The candidate elect of the Chica
go Conveniiou is in this respect more de
cided than their platform.
Lincoln and Hamlin is now tho rally

rejoice that we oie able to euppoit the

The Nomluation at Chicago.
The news ot the nomination of Abraham
Lincoln fell like a stunning blow in the
midst of us. lie was known, it is truo.
through lis contest against Douglas, but
the heartof Cincinnati bnlongs to i remont
and to Chase. Those who preferred Fre
mout sbove all, and they were a great
majority, were in the second instance
for our woll proved and intrepid champion
of the Republican party, 8. P. Chase.
Tcoe who preferred Chaau as their first
choice, wore unwilling to accopt any otl
er subs iluto for him than Fremont.
What was more natural, than that, up to
tho last moment, notwithstanding tho let
ter written by bim, so falsely interpreted
and abused as it bad been, tho hope yet
remained that hia naruo would come be
fore tho Convention
Wo bnd, indeed, been accustomed to
look upon Seward as a conspicuous can
didato. Seward, the thoroughly aooora
plished Statesman, the subtle thinker, the
determined man of action but st the
tame time, the advocate of a centralized
government, the opponent of free demo
ciatio sell'-dcvelopemcnt, tho man of cal-
cu'ation, in whose view the mean ot car
rying an election Are not particularly
strict tho old Whig.
Lincoln is at least free from all suspi
cion of servility to slavory. If he is not
a man of universal culture, like Fremont,
if he has not entered ,tho list ia bohulf of
the rights of adopted citizens with the
samo energy as Cbao and .Seward, be has
vet ui ver manifested anv adhesion to tbe
Nativo-Amorican prejudice, and has al
ready long since declared himself opposed
to any change in tho naturalization laws.
If Lincolu is not enshrined in tho hearts
of tho people, likv Fremont, he has yet
labored with the people all his life, ho is
truly a sell made maul
If we may not enter upon the contest
under his leadership with the same onthu
aiaiu is under that of Fruuiunt, whose
name amuses a world of hopes nnd nrs
givingsiu the mitel of him who lives for
the futuro, ami believes iu the progro-a
and elevation of mankind wo can still go
into the ba'.tle lor Liinculn, ns tho soldiers
of freedom, who from a sentiment of loy
alty to tho causa, will do their duty. If
wo ounnol go into tho struggle with the
samo hope ns with Fremont or Cliase. to
conquer now worlds tor freedom, we must
yet so nioh the nuro close up the ranks,
that the encroachments of tho enemy that
would Invade us tho Slavo Power may

Mr Fellow Citizens: Iu this mighty

thusiasm I see the issue of the Campaign.
The manner in which you uud your fol
low citizen throughout the country re
spond to the nominations made at Chica
go is sure prago of success, and I con-
gratylute you upon tne ciieenng prjjuui
rreloro us. The connection oi my own
uatne in the Natioral Convention with the
nominations for the Presidency renders it
proper that I should say that I was placed
in tint attitude by the action of the Re
publicans of Ohio, a very large majority
of whom in their Sate Convention pre-
Rented my name to , '.bo Republicans ot
the Union as thir chose for the Presi

It hs been said that the nomination
of ain candidates might have endan-
ect the success of :l e cause we all have
so n uch at heart. Ood forbid that my
nomination or that of any other man
should imperil the the triumph of Repub
lican principles! Thoie principles aro
dearer to me than all merely personal con
siderations, and 1 rcjoico that, although
I was not nominated, my principles were;
and that they have so true and bo faith
ful a representative tn tho coming contest
as Abraham Liaooln, of. Illinois.
The doctrines of the Republiom party
are about to receive a triumphant vin
dication nt the lia.ids of the American
people. They and thuso who have ad
vocated them, liftvo Heretofore been por-
sistcntly misrepresented; but let mo any
that oven the slave holding States them
selves, undor a wise and patriotic Repub
lican administration, will sooa discover
the error into which they have been led
by these iniBreprescntations. For myself
I cherish no hostility toward tho people
of the Southern Stated. 1 would not
deprive them of a single richt guarantuod
to them by the Constitution nor doe
ihe KepuMican parly propose to uo so.
It simply contends for freedom in the
Territories, against the Southern demand
io introduco slavery (here. It believes
that freedom and free labor will best de
vclopo their, resources', and contribute
moat to the wclfaro uud happiness of
tboso who may emigrato thither from tho
ilsve Stato as well as from the free. In
the former there it ft comparatively small
class of slaveholders, whilu the irreat ma
jority of whU 'itihabitants are non-sla
veholders and poor. We coutond that
the Territories should be openoJ to tbe
poor emigrant, whethor from the North
or the South, and that thus ahall be pcr
potuated a true popular sovereignty, in
which the majority shall govern, rather
t1 an a class contiol. In the Southern
States there nio thousands, kept down
by poverty aud mcul distinctions, who
long for schools ond churches, and fur
unrestricted, opporluuitios of self-oulture
ana cievniicn in me sooiai caie. we re
publicans proposo,by keeping Ibo Territo
ries in reserve, fur them, to furnish them
these advantages; and it is a very foitu-
nate and significant cirouniBtunco that
this leading ldeS cf tho Republican creed
is ao woll represented by our candidate.
I hi lite ot Mr. Lincoln lurmshed an
illustration of the operation of that idea.
Hid irracd parents were nativos of Virgin.
in, bis parents of Kontucky, and thoy - ore
poor. Youocr Lincoln left the unfriendly
atmosphere of slavery in hia native Stale
and removed to Indiana, where he could
breathe free air nnd carve out for hiuisilf
a more favoiahlo destiny. Had ho never
niadti that removal, it is scarcely proba
ble that, bamporod by the difficulties that
surrounded bun, he would have risen to
tho high position ho now occupies before
the people of tho nation. But he came
over on to freo soil, where gonerou.i sym
pathies awaited the laborer, and helped
him on iu his upward career. Rising by
his own noble ctforts, be ia to day the
choson Presidential eaudidalo of tho Re
publican party, aud on tho 4th o Marol
next he will bo tho duty chosen l'resi
dent of tho United Suites.
Of tho nomineo f. r Vioo President, I
an truly say that ho is eminently worthy
of the confidence ropoBed in him. I have
served with bim long in pullij life, and
have known him well. He has been a
lile-Iong Dcmociat-rnotof the modern
tvpe, but of the achool of Jefferson and
Franklin. Ilia Demooraoy is not of that
kind which consists in subserviency to
'.ho dictates of a alavoholding class, und
whose highest manifestation is in the
alacrity with which its duvotoos will chase
a runaway uiggar; but that Democracy
upon which our institutions are basscd;
which towering sublimely above the sel
fish interest of classes and factions, is en
throned upon the solid foundations of true
popular sovereignty tho expressed will
ol an intelligent and patriotic people. I
can pronounco upon him no higher eulo
gium than to say that be is worthy of as
sociation upon the samo ticket with Abia
ham Lincoln. '
Gov. Clmss conoluded bis speech, of
which the foregoing is an impelled and
hasty skotch, by a stirring appeal to Re
publicans to do their whole duty in the
A Letter from SI r. Seward.
Nxw Yobk, May 24. The following
letter haa been addressed by Mr. Sxwabd
10 the gentlemen of the Central Republi
can Committee, who invited m to attend
a meeting for the ratification of the pro
ceedings of tho National Convention:- Cin
Ai'Buhh, May 21, 1860.
Gentlemen: I will not affect to consult
the sensibility with which 1 have received
tholctters in which you aud so many other
respected friends have tendered to me ex
pressions of renewed and endearing con
fidence. These letters will remain with
me as assurances in future, that although
1 was not unwilling to await even for
another age the vindication of my politi
cal principles, yet that they did neverihe
less receive the generous support of many
good, wise aud patriotic men of say own
Such assurances, however made under
the ciroumstaoces now existing, derive
their priceless value largely from the faol
that they steal upon me through the chan
nels of private correependence, and al
though unknown to the world, you will at
once perceive thai such expiessions would
become painful to me, and justly offensive
to tho country, if I should be allowed to
partake io any public or conventional form
ot manifestation. For this reason, if it
were respect! ul and consistent for yourowc
public purposes, I would have delayed my
reply to you until 1 could bave had an op
portunity of making it verbally next week
on my wy to Washington, after complet
ing the arrangements lor the repairs upon
my dwelling, rendered necessary by a re
The same reason determines me also to
c'ecline your kind invition to attend the
meeting in which you propose some de
nionstraiioiib of respect to myself. While
so justly considering tue nominations
which bave just I ecu made by the Nation
al Convention at Chicago, at the same time
it is your right to have a frank and candid
expression of my own opinions and senti
ments on that important subject.
My mends, knowing very well that while
they have always generously made my pro
motion to public trusts their own exolusive
care, mine bas only been to execute them
faithfully, so as to be able, at the close of
tbtii 8s1gncd forms, to resiga them into
ihe bands of the people without forfeiture
of to public confidence
The presentation of my name to the Chi
cago Convontion was thus thon their act,
not mine; the disappointment thorofort
thciia, not mine. It may have found them
unprepared On the other hand, I bave no
seutiment either of disappointment or dis
content; for who in any possible case
could, without presumption, claim that a
great national party ought to choose him
for its candidate for the first office ir. the
gift of the American people I find in
the resolutions or tho Convention a plat
form as satifaotory to me as if it bad Leon
framed with my own hands, and in the
candidates adopted by it, eminont and able
licpuldicans with whom I have cordially
co-opeiated in maintaining the priuciplos
embodied in thai creed.
I choei fully give tbein a sincere and
earnest support. I truet, moreover, that
tuoso with whom I have lubored so long
that common service in a noble onuse has
created betweon there and myself.relutions
of personal friendship, unsurpassed in the
exporienoe of political men, will indulge
me iu a conudent belief that no seise of
disappoitment will be allowed bv them to
hinder or delay, or in any way euibanass
(he progress of that cause to the consum
matiou which is demand by a patriotic re
gaid to tha rafotyand welfaie of the conn
try, and the best interests of mankind.

Lincoln on the Rights of Foreign Born
Citiaens aud on Fusion
The Illinois S aats-Anacigcr publishes
it letter of Abraham Lincoln, written just
a year since, on the Naturalisation qucs
tioo and the Massachusetts ainendmont,
as well aa on the propriety of a fusion of
the Republican with other parties. The
following is the leuer:
pfRiNOPisi.D, 17 Muy, 1859.
Dr. Theothro Cunisius:
Dear Sir: I Imve rdoeived your let
ter, in which you ask, for yourself and
olhor Oormnu Citizens, whether I am for
or against the Constitutional provision, in
relation to naturalised oitizons, which has
lately boon adopted by Massachusetts;
and whoiber I am for or against a fusion
of the Republican and other opposition
elements, lbr the election campaign of
Massachusetts is a sovereign anil inde
pendent State, and I have no title to ad
vi.so or admonish her as to her oourso,
what she shall do. But wl or. any ono
from that which she has done, seeks to
draw a conclusion its to what I shall do, I
may without boing charged with pre
sumption, speak my mind. I Bay then,
that, so far as I understind tho Massa
chusetts amendment, I am against tho
adoption of the parao, as well in Illinois
as in all other places where I have the
right to oppose it. Since I interpret the
spirit of our institutions us tending to the
elevation of man, I am opposed to every
thing which leads to his degradation.
Since, as is prolty well known, I oom
misserate the opprosied condition of (ho
negroes, I should be guilty of a remarka
ble inconsistency, where I to favor any
measure, whose tendency is to abridge
the existing rights ot xehiti men, whether
born in another country, or speaking an
other langmigo than my own.
As regards the question of a fusion of
parties, 1 am Tor it, it it can be efteoted
upon a Republican basis; upon no other
terms am I in favor of it. A fusion upon
any other terms would be as unwise as it
would bo unprincipled. Its effoot would
bo to lose thereby the wholo North, while
the common enemy would certainly car
ry the entire Soutb. Tin question in re
lation to men is a different one. Theie
are good and patriotio men, and able
statesmen in the South, whom I would
oheerfully support, if they stood upon
Republican ground, but I am opposed to
lowering the Republican etandaid by so
much as a hair's breath.
I have written this in baste, but I be
lieve that it substantially answers your
, . ABRAHAM LINCOLN.
T MSRKBY annoanee to my old customers, and the
I pnblle generally, that I bar re-opened my OLD
UR10K VAKB, North of Laneaater, and will supply
