THE QUE8T10H OF THE DAY. One of the Great Problems of the Age. Its Bearings Commercially, Financially and Fhllanthropically Considered. Ibe hate, liiioD, P wych an I Happiness of Miilioos bralved in its Solution. African Labor and its Relations to Modern Civilization, The most valuable discovery made in the tro pics of tie New World was in the fertility of its soil, within the tropics? capable of yielding, by cultiva tion, untold wealth to the whites of the temperate latitude*, but in a climate where no European could toil and live. While Spain soon exhausted its me talic resources and spent the proceeds in devastat ing wars, the soil remained uncultivated, from which vast wealth watt to be drawn. There only existed one species of labor which could be em ployed in the developement of these vast tropical regions to the fruitfulness of which no section of the Old World afforded any parallel ? and this was tlie servitude of Africans. ORIGIN OF SLA VERT. Slavery was the thinning of civilization in a savage state. where the only means of sustenance were derived from the chase. Prisoners tiken in war could not be supported; their captorn pos ?ewJ no means for feeding or maintaining them. Bence their constant custom was to put tkcm to ieath. This would prevail until their labor could be uade available in agricultural or pastoral pur ees. Hence, when savage chiefsfound they could ?ell their prisoners to tho-e able and willing to feed them for their services, the spirit of civilisation stepped in and rescued them from death. Hence Dm commencement of slavery was founded in hu manity and aided the progress of civilization. The labor of the prisoners thus purchased, efter pro toeing necessaries to supply the wants of them aatvea and owners, would have a surplus 1- ft, whiuh would lead to exchanges, and thus lay the founda tion of commercial intercourse; and its necessities would again call in the aid of the incchcuical art aad manufacture". ?MIL, I HP (SPOKE ANP AFTER TUB INTRODUCTION OP AmiCAN LAtOR INTO TUB TROPICS OF THE NfW WORLD. Afri tan labor in the New World has formed one ?f the most remarkable epochs in tin l.Utory of Baa. In no period of his previous existence wore Africans subjugated to tropical labor,- in no part of tho^Jastern World did such a vast aou rich iield ?Stat for its employment. Prom the date of the commencement of the AAiean ?lave trade may be dated the beginning of a aew era in modern wealth and civilization. Etatfand engaged in the African slave trade in the sixteenth cen.ury, in the time of Henry VIII., Which was vigorously prosecuted in the roign ot Queen Elizabeth. It was under her sway that re gular companies were termed, and a targe .lumber ?f vessels were sent out to the coast of Alrioa to purchase prisoners from the natives and convey them to the l'.rit -h West India Islands anl to her oalonies ot North America. Ti e members of the aoyai lamily, with many of the nobility of Eng land, vested their mouey in these expeditions. Aad many of her present nobility arc Indebted for their hereditary wealth to the profits their atiees tors derived Ironi the prosecution of the slave trade. When Bir'Jobn Huukins first visited an African tribe known an the Sambos, be fount! tLein oaani bais; and the first pan base he tuade wan livm a chief who had retained a certain number of prisoners as a provision against futur>- want. It is a little curious that one expedition fitted ?at for the slate trade under the patronage of Elizabeth's government was railed 'Jc-us," and another was called "Solomon.'' The British not only supplied their own ct>! nirs With African laborer*, which vastly augmented (heir value and productiveness. contributing wealth to tie British nation, but they coe?roet?\l to de hv< r, under royal charter, a large t. cm Her annual ly to the Spanish colonic-. To understand the immense advantages gained and tt" benefit conferred on civilisation by African laboi in the tropica of the New WuriJ.it is only aeofesary to reflect upon what the condition of Bu rope, and especially of f'ogiaad, was prior to the employment of African labor, or before the reign of Qneea Elizabeth, and sobsequen*. to that period. While much has been attribute 1 to the Reforma tion, to printing and to the gol4 minea ?f South America, the vast material elements of mn lera civilisation resulting from African labor have be?n everlooked. England, when Elisabeth came to tbe throne, sraa in a measure without a commerce atd without a navy. The grand Armada, which threateced her destruction, would lie regarded now of I'ttle more femportar. e than a fleet 'of tiahing smacks. The dty of London was composed of muddy and crook ed lanes and narrow airy* for streets, orer which the gablea of wooden houses nearly torched each other. Her streets had no iighta, and n lien people went out at night they had to he car ried in haiwlbarrow* on the abou Jers of men, or were supported in their hands, while others ?arched in front with flambeaus to light their way. The crockery ware of the royal table was tittle better than that produced br the Dot h pot ? teries in New Jersey. Her pnb! roads were al most impassable. while her forests and highways were infested by robbers. Her inns were misera ble roadsidu Levels. It required about two or three weeks to make a jonraey from London to Bdinburg, or to the west coast of England. The aite of Masch ester was a bleak common, while Liverpool waa little better than a tiahing station. Prior to the reign of llenry VII.. the graadiathcr af Elisabeth, the people of Kugland had, is ?heir civil wart between the White and Red Boee factions, caused forty thousand of their ?amber to fail a battle. The masses were throughout the realm poor, abject and miserable being*, dragged to slaughter by Heal and contending < at thrifts, seeking to govern by fraud and violence. No man can travel through RgglanJ without meeting with the evidences of the ancient poverty of its masses. Few memorials remain anywhere of their existence as a mass, or as o upiers of the soil, fogtish wealth, progress, cematerce, agriculture, arts, sciences, with her naval power, all pretty macb date from the com men nt of the employment of African labor in j the New Wwld. and the same may ?ah! of the .

The annual exports to her East India Posses sions amount to $70,000,000, and her annual Im ports from thence to $80,000,000. The progress of the United States from the same general basis han also reached an annual average export of about $325,000,000? more than half and near two-thirds of which are the prodncU of African labor; while her annual imports average about $312,000,000. Abolish African labor In the tropics, and what wonld be the consequenses, not alone to the whites of England and America, but of the civilized world? The praises of Arkwrlght and of Whitney have been often told in prose and poetry; but what would have been the use of the spinning jenny and of the cotton gin without African tropical la bor, to the production of cotton in regions where white labor perishes? FhKK AND AFRICAN SLAVE LABOR RBCIPROCALLY UKKKKICIAL, AND NOT ANTAGONISTIC. In the Northwestern States of America white labor is devoted to the growth of grain. Where does it Knd its mo-t constant and reliable market? An-wer: In its direct trade with the South and in supplying the New England and Eastern manufac turiog districts. Where do these manufacturing communities depend for the best market for their goods? At the South. Thon the free laborers of the Northwest de pend upon the African labor of the South, employed in a climate where they themselves cannot work, for their best means of support. Again: where do the shoe and boot manufacturers, the steam cugine build' rs, the producers of cotton gins, sugar mills, ploughs, horses, pork and steam boats?amounting to millions annually? living in the free towns West and in the free cities of the East, as they are n auntingly called depend for their best market? On the Afiiean labor of the South. Yet all the white laborers engaged in these pursuits aro told that th< slavery of the South is their worst ene my, and th.it they must unite to put down it and the South together. The fanatics talk of freedom, just as though there existed a single white man in the United Statu who dot s not enjoy as much liberty to day as existed in America when General Wash ington was first inaugurated President of the United States, on the steps of the old City Hall in New York. Such an insane cry only means abolitionism , which, if carried out, is to involve whites and blacks in one general ruin. A Mi AN SKHVICIS. OR 8I.AVKR7, AS PHO.'EKTV CNDEH TDK CONSTITUTION. But, says one, the constitution does not recog nise African services, or slavery, as property. How do you make that out ? At the time the constitution of the United States was signed, in 17s7, there were 41,000 African slaves held in the present free States oi the North. The State of New York held 21,000, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Connecticut, &c.( also held large numbers of slaves. Suppose a clause had been proposed to be embraced in the constitu tion during its formation declaring that slaves from that moment ceatcd to be property, do you, can any one, suppose that New York? holding pro l perty in '.'1 ,000 slaves? or that Rhode island or other Northern State*, would hnvo signed It? Not "a bit" <4 it. How impudent and unjust, therefore, for th< -e States who sold out their negroes to the South now to come forward and tell the Southern people that there Is no property in African services or labor, or in slaves, under the constitution. Tl.is, too, in the face of the fact that the government has uniformly paid for slaves killed in Indian warn, aud has also compelled the English to pay for slaves carried off during the late war, or wrecked on Knglinh island* aud retained there l>y violence, when tarwtit luiu one Am< ffean port to another. NEW 0IUKII ON Pl.kVBHY AND Till M. A VI Tit APE ? position or wAssaciiiiirT ruin an? mow. Tlie n.overaents of the N'ew England Statea in re gard to -Ijvery have been of a mo.-: extraordinary character, During tlie debates in the Convention cn tic f> rui.iti n of the constitution, Virginia, with a majority of the Southern States, propwd a rluuM' in fmor of terminating the slave trade in the jear 1MX). This was opposed by a majority of the New England States including Massachusetts and lihode Island who hal a large onmbcr el vessels engaged in the slave trade, or in transporting slaves from Africa to the Southern States, and did not wish their trade to be interrupted. Hence these States proposed > to extend the period to 1*20. This the Southern States opposed. Finally, the period of 1*03 was offered as a compromise, and we find that Massa ? husetta and other New England States, who could have terminated the African slave trade in 1*00, actually voted to extend it eight years beyond that period, during which the trade was never more actively prosecuted. Massachusetts became res ponsible fur the Africans introduced in the South within those eight years. In that time M,000 were introduced into South Carolina. Does Massachusetts, when supporting the doctrines of abolitionism, repent of having been a party to the introduction of those 40.000 Africans? Or does she propose to purchase their liberation, and send them back to Africa? Not at all. We find that within a recent period she sends one of her lawyers to South Carolina to resist the legality of its no nit ipal laws regarding the imprisonment of Ore negroes, made necessary foi the protection of its citizens. What did South Carolina do' Ac knowledge the right ?f Massachusetts to iat -rferc In her local legislation ? No; not at all. The agent of that Stat* was summarily ejected from South Carolina. What follows^? l)id Massachusetts at tempt coercion ! No. She had no constitutional right to do so. It is now claimed that the free States collectively. Msssaohusstt . included, have a tight to do what the latter had no powei or legal right to do iodividus lly. A) Jin, we find a ^ei.ator of Mnsrachiisetts. who grossly maligns snd villifles a *-ute into wh'>se boeom Mssssehusetta assisted to pour 40.000 slaves, against the wi?hes of a majoiity of the Southern States, is knocked down, end, though not JnstiSed by any considerable number of the people even in --outh Carolina. yet the act found palliation both North and South. What did Massachusetts do' < o to war with South Carolina? No. She went to wark in spreading abroad the dragon's teeth of abolitionism, hatred, discord and III will i against the whole South, and to seek in this cru sade the co operation of all the free Stitei to 'pun l?h the whole South for the acts of South Carolina, or, in other words, to redress the personal griev ances of Mr. Hoar an<l Mr. Mitnner, to do what she wis, numerical,)- and onstitutlonally, was unable to perform singlshandt d. let ua look at the marsed side of this picture.

The total produc t of African slave labor through out the tropics of the New World amounts to the annual tram of about 1000,000,000? the yield of about 6,500,000 slaves. Of this immense sum more than one half is supplied by the African labor oi the Uuitcd States. IVriah all this, perish com mute, perish everything, so that the one idea of negTo equality shall be accomplished; perinh the white*, and perish the negroes themselves, rather than abolitionism shall not prevail. Proclaim free dom to the blacks at the South to-morrow, remove the fpardianship of the whites, and you would pro claim their speedy extermination. Had the negroes of St. Domingo formed a part of the continent of France, in juxtaposition with 32,000,000 whites, in stead of being placed on an island, who doubts but they would have been exterminated? FUST ABPAVLT UPON AFRICAN LABOR IN TUB TRO , PICS ? THX FIRST ABOLITION BOCIBTT AND I TO BB SfLTfl. The first check to the aid and progress civili zation derived from African labor was from the fa naticism of the French revolution in 17'.H) -03. The first abolition society ever formed was that of the "L'Atni <lt* JVicxVe," in Paris, at that period. It was composed of fanatics and infidels, just .is the same party in the United States is formed at the present day. The IJoyd fJarrison of that day was the fanatical Abbe (iregoiro. He proclaimed, with the infidels, universal "liberty, Fraternity and Equality," white and black. And, to prove his love of the negro, he actually embraced a thick lipped African negio who appeared in the Constituent \sacmbly, and hugged and Ki.-sed him, railing him his "dear brother.'' Madness ruled the hour. And in an evil-moment the National Assembly, which sent innocent men and women to the gui Urine in the name of "liberty, fraternity and equality," proclaimed 400,000 brutal and savage blacks in St. Domingo free, while there were only some 30,000 poor and defenceless, white people on the .inland to resist this infernal horde let loose upon them. The result was that they barbarously anu indiscriminately massacred thiin iu every form of fiendish cruelty barbarity could invent, white the torch destroyed their droll in j. s and desolated the island. Its chief butcher of women and childitn, nnd who poisoned the wells to destroy the French troops sent to subdue them, Touissont 1/Ouvertnre? the bloody John Brown of lib time Wendell Phil lips recently, in New York, called a hero greater than Napoleon or Washington. And to-day this abolitionist and his infernal pack of bloodthirity fanatics would, to accomplish their insane purposes, not only sacrifice the interest and happiness of the Macks at the South and of the whites at the North, but see the whites of the South, of all ages s#d sexes, slain in cold blood and their hou -es given to the Games, rather than their hellish schemes should not prevail. Some sixty to seventy years have rolled over since the bones of :50,000 whites have been bleach ing on the tropical hills of St. Domingo, and the monuments of desolation were made to blacken its valleys. Vet what has become of the "equality and fraternity" of the races? The blacks of St. Domingo are still an uneqnal race. The material prosperity of the island has never been and never will be recovered. While the insane "liberty equality and fraternity," claimed by tail* dels nnd fanatics in 1793, nowhere evist in France. An Emperor rules with an iron will. Hien what did the first Abolition So I cicty, L'Arui dta Xoirr, "tho friends of the blacks," accomplish? The mas- acre of .10,000 white men, women and children, in all the forms of barbarous cruelty. That is all. And wh.?t more I than similar butchery can our abolitionists a ? om pli>h It left to carry out their insane crusade? TUB SECOND aSWATI-T ON AFRICAN L4B0H, AND WHAT B I. CAME OF IT. The next check, or attempt to destroy African labor in the New Word, was inaugurated in t'ng laiid. The infidelity and Jacobinism of France crossed the Channel, Mr. Wilberforce and his Qua ker friends < ommenced operations against tho slave trade. Uaining '?trength, they adopted the princi ples of L'Auiidn X< , and became raupant abolitionist*. snJ finally forced the govenracnt to abolish slavery in her West India Islands, which I <1 to their ruin. Their attempted reoperation l>y supplies of ccoties and captured African-* has proved a failure. TBF THIRD l.?A>n ASSAftT ITON AFRICAN T.ISOH. GIU1 AM/ED IN '. HK NORTHI-IIN STATES OF AMERICA. The next grand assault to be made on the enor n.ously valuable labor of Africans in the tropica? valuable alike to white* and blanks, valuable to tbe cause of progress, of commerce and of civilisa tion throughout the world has been organized in the free States of North America, incited by British influence, again' t the labor of four millhjiit of slaves in the ?- i.utbe.ni States, with whmn they formed the most solemn constitutional com pa. ts. f oriiinat^ly for those Southern Statea, anil for the white* of the eivili/p.1 world, who m>t?t have sup ple of <300,000 ,00*> in Jetton annually, to ?ay no tlitgof tobacco rice.V , tliey are Independent and soverrljpi State* in ail thing* not expresacd In the eon?tituilon.

The country n:.ide no prtgrets until the supply ui jo'.ton be juiiie a large article of export, between the years 1705 and 1812, which introduced largely inorcaMd w euith. The war of 1812 cut off thisresoorce ua an export. The South joined in the war of 1612 on j : inciple that is, to protect Northern ships fro. a starch and the seizure of sailors by Rritish erniseri, while gome of the New England States, when it had commenced, opposed the war. After a content of three years the States emerged from the struggle in poverty and bankruptcy. Cotton now sold at 18 cento to 26 cents per pound, and was as good for export as so much gold, while the exports of Northern growth, such as breadstuff*, were cat off by the English Corn lnws. The exports of cotton, therefore, not only aided In paying off the obligations of the Revolutioniry War, but. to a large extent, paid off the immense debt contracted during the last war with Great Britain, amounting to from >100,000,000 to $200, 0C0.000. Not only so, but they contributed to pay oti the debts contracted on account of the Mexican war. WbOe cotton has thus sustained so largely the financial resources of the government, it has en riched the manufacturing and commercial classes of the Northern States, as well as contributed, by its home market for breadstuff* and provisions, to eiirich lie agricultural free labor of the We it. CONCLUSION. To preserve these great interests of whites and blocks, to save our country and its institutions from" the revolution threatened by the madness of infidels, fanatics and traitors, demands that every patriot should rally in their defence by sustaining the constitution, and the equality of State rights, and that Union guaranteed under its broad man tle, now and forever.

THE PROBABLE CABINET OP LINCOLN. ANXIETIES, PERPLEXITIES AND UTR1CCE9, a*, a?H a* (Mr SprlagMeld Corr?ipondtnc?. SrRiNOFiKi.D, 111., Oct. 16, 1S60. Influx of Politicians to Visit Lincoln ? Axeg to Grind? The Interview Btticeen Seicard and Lin coln ? Why and ITowit Took riace?Seinard Xot to Hold Office Under the Xext Administration, Ac. Tliis handsome little prairie town, with its quiet look of a New England village, its unpromis ing hotels near the railroad station, its half dozen churches sending their white spirea high up into the clear blue sky, and its snug homes half hidden from view in the thick foliage with which they are surrounded, appears to possess at this time a spe ci.J intereit in the eyes of politicians. Every d?y some one or more of the republican stamp orators who are perambulating the country, from the banks of the Penobscot to the banks of the Kansas, find that tLey have some little business requiring their attention here. That business invariably brings them into personal communication wit'.i the great celebrity of Ihe place? the ex-rail splitter? who, to his own and the country's astonishment, sudden ly found himself famous by the action of the Chicago Convention. What can all these long vviuded but empty headed orators have to say to Old Abe? Much that is of consequence to themselves to be said; little that it would be interesting to the public to have repeated. One thing Mr. Lincoln ought to be satisfied of, if he has any confidence in the as sertions of such people, and that is that the unsel fish patriots who are stumping States for the re publican ticket, where there never was any room to doubt how they would vote, have been the origi nal and earnest and most nnyielding supporters of the Springfield celebrity, and did as mach as even Horace Greeley himself in ruling out the preten sions of William II. Seward. If these gentlemen do not get an opportunity of serving their oonntry for the next four years, In positions where there is little work and much pay, you may depend upon it that it will not be for want of blowing their owu trumpets nor from any modesty in magnifying their own achievements. But speaking of Wiiiiam II. Seward reminds me that the principal design of thix communication was to discuss the relations existing between him and Mr. Buchanan ?s successor in the White House. It has been remarked that throughout Mr. Seward's praud ovation in the Northwest, he very rarely, and then only in the curtest manner, spoke of the republican candidate for the Presidency. He re cogi.ized that the (Uttering demonstrations that attend' d his tour were made in honor of himself personally, and bad little or nothing to do with the republican cause or candidate. The men who ac companied and turrounded liirn were li'a own imme diate friend* and admirer*; and wliiie they yielded a I'ti-t-ive obrdicnce to the uk&KO of the Chicago Convent ion, they never tried to stifle the expression of thc-ir regret tli.it the choice had not fallen on tl.< ir favorite, or, as fJeneral Nye u*ed to put it, on New Yotk's favorite son. Seward himself would have beta more or lew than human if he did not, t<5 a very considerable extent, ??hare in this feeling. His heart wax not in the cause of Linoln and tlamlin. He might well have be?n deterred from trying to m.ike a shjw of loyalty towaid that cause by the reflection that in doing ao he would expose himself to the charge of insincerity and hypocrisy. And ao. while he talked at the irrepresaiblc conflict, of the backwardness of slave communities, and of the present and prospec tive grandeur of the great West, he never attempt ed to inspite his hearers with any elevated idea of the talents or abilities of llr. Lincoln. Let not Mr. Beward be blamed for this. Rv.her honor him for hi* avoidance of even the semblance of bypocriey. But, then, it may be said the proof of Mr. Sew ard's sincere regard for Lincoln may be seen in the fact thai be passed through Springfield for the sole purpose of seeing him, when he might have cone by another route, and when it had been actually arranged that he should go by another route. That circumstance i* not wwth so much as may appear at first sight. There was a little bit of policy In this deviation. Would you know the se cret of it? And it is not much of a secret either. Scwaid wfnt ly way of Springfield be it had been represented to him, and he ac knowledged tiie truth of the representation, that Lis avoidance of Springfield, when he might as well take that route would be sure to be construed into au evidence of hostility against Lincoln, and lafebt operate nreju diually to the republican cauae. That arg ument swayed him; although, on the other hand, if he should have an Interview with IJneoln. the same slanderous spirit might find in that fact "coufirma tion strong as proofs c! holy writ" that Seward was negotiating for the State Department or for the m. ? ion to London. How was he to avoid Stylla. and yet not fail nto Charybdis! By one of those very compromises which enable us, in personai I r.d political matters, to avoid so many difficulties, ana ? hi n Mr. Beward himself so contemns and rtviles when the slavery question is involved. He ' resolved, it seems, to go to Springfield, but at the same time^o avoid any private Interview with Lin coln, and thus disarm malic* of a weapon with which she might otherwise annoy him. That is how Me*?r*. Beward and Mncoincame to have that brief meeting In the cara, of which your repoitergave yon the particular' by telegraph. Cue of the great <|ueetioas that occupy the pub lie mind now In connection with the succaaa of the republican cause ia this:? Will Mr. lincola'a ad ministration be carried on In each a manner as to do cf|nal and exm t justice to all parta of tha coa fedcracj, or will the radical sod subversive Idcaa of Mr. atVWi, in regard to the question of slavery, be permitted to exercise an influence which could only have most rumoua conse?|oen-es? In other words, will Mr. Beward hold a place In tha Cabi net, or will be be at leaat a power behind the throne! One part of the question, I think, I can answer with some degree of confidence. Mr. Beward will , not hold a place in the next administration. It won Id not be Mr. Unco la 'a wish that he should, however much he might feel himself bound to offer It. He is naturally Jealoua of Beward'a Influence, and of hla undoubted abilities aa a statesman. He ia not inclined to follow aa a satellite la the orb* which Beward proscribes, but, on the contrary, j rather inclines to follow a moderate, fair, constita tiotsl course of policy. If yon believe his own as snran. ee, the moat violent Southern fire eater wdl find it diflcolt to question his pauioti?m or impar tiality. He k ft man of a rough, original tnra of mind, an-1 jost n?h a man, It strikes me, as wonld, ji tfce ',miri*'J-at'on which be sbo?i'd presi Je, i ?how rather much obstinacy and self-will. " Au Ootsar, aut nullum," would probably be hid motto, if he were conversant with Latin. And such a man would not be likely to tolerate ouch a visi Nff aa Wm, H. Beward. But, If there were any doubt on the subject, I think Mr. Seward's own dtoclaimer ought to settle it. The one thing that ho lecnied to dread most from his meeting with Lincoln was, a* 1 have before remarked, leat ha might bo suspooted of having selfish ends to promote; and the only thing of My note that he said in hia speech from the can at Spring tield was, that New York, while doing more for Lincoln than any lialf dozen other States, would be the least exacting of all. That waa construed at the time, by your reporter, aa meaning that Mr. Beward wanted no office from Mr. Lincoln; and I am inclined to thmk that your reporter was quite right in his construction. I, too. was present at the interview, and heard the speech, and, even at the iisk of being As tedious u i twice told tale, 1 will essay to give your reader* my description ot that somewhat remarkable event. It was about- noon on the 2d of October when the train on which were Mr. Seward and party reached Springfield. All the morning they had been admiring the richly developed country throngb which the road ran ? the far -spreading prairies dot ted here and there with fine farm house* embower ed in trees. It was one of those dreamily pleasant days that give such a charm to the season, when the leaves assume rich purple hues and render the woo'dlands so unspeakably gorgeous. At length the reverie, iuto which the travellers appeared plunged, was broken by the whistle of the locomo tive announcing the approach to a station: that station was bpringfleld. On the outskirts of the town a gnn was planted, from which a salute was fired in honor of Senator Seward. That indicated something like a public reception, and, indeed, there were collected around the station six or eight i hundred people who cheered vociferously as the | ctrs stopped. Then there waa a rush to get a sight at t^e Senator. The doorways were instantaneously jammed, so that there was uo getting in or getting j out: and the windows were stared into in searcl lofSe ward. Among the firbt to enter, and to make his way to Mr. Seward, was Abe Lincoln himself. I do not gee w hy people call him Old Abe. There is no ap pearance of age about the man , excepting the deep ly indented wrinkles on his brow, and the furrow ploughed down his bare cheeka, hairless as an In dian's; you can hardly detect the presence of frost, in his black, glossy hair. Neither do I understand why he is represented as being so prodigiously ug | ly. Put him alongside of Mr. Charles O'Oonor, and Mr. James W. Gerard? both of which eminent gentlemen ridiculed so much his supposed ugliness at the Cooper Institute in your city last week? and if he would not appear "an Adonis to a Satyr," he would, at all events, be set down as the finest look ing ntau of the trio. He is awkwardly till; but if ; he had had a military training; his height would , be rather to his advantage than otherwise. lie is "no carpet knight so trim," aflecte not the ' elegancies of refined society, does not care to imi tate New York aldermen in tho matter of yellow kids, but is altogether a plain, blunt, wiostenta i tious man, and I have no doubt that ihe epithet I "honest'' as applied to him is not misapplied. As i;e elbowed his way up to Bcward's seat his coou I tenance waa lighted up with an expression of plea sure and good humor: and wliile you would recog nise in his face a general resemblance to the popu lar photograpl. i and prints of him, yet you would say at once that none of them did him justice. The portrait that most nearly approaches perfec tion is the imperial photograph in Brady's gallery in New York. But in all of them his lace wears m stony, rigid, corpse-like expression, as if they were taken from a piece of sculpture, whereas in conversation he has great mobility and play ot features, and when he is thus animated yon fail to erceive anything ot the ugly or grote?qa9 about im. I had time to trace these observations of him oo the "tablets of the braia" as ho elbowed his way, followed bv a crowd of Sprin^tielders, ip to Sena tor Seward's seat. The latter rose as Lincoln ap proached. khook hand* with him, ntrodjeed him to the ladies and gentlemen in his company, and * then, without entering into a convers.il on of even :,<in:al courtesy with him, resurai 1 hit ?eat, from which, however, he was immediately called out by the crowds aronnd the car. who wished to see and hear him. Seward seemed to ooey the summona wiih unwonted alacrity, a* ifpla'l to abbreviate by -r> much the interview.
