About $1,00Mr. Lincoln, and the war tax must be paid forthwith--$463,000 is the sum taxed upon Connecticut for the war. About $1,000,000 have already been borrowed by this State, to pay and equip our five regiments.

The thng and complete as it is. One argument upon which Mr. Lincoln and his friends appear strongly to rely is, that e Legislatures or of a National Convention. Yes, Mr. Lincoln makes the astounding assertion that no State can the sublime and the proverbial trifle beyond. If Mr. Lincoln had read the history of Virginia to himself he woal bungling through all its intricacies for while Mr. Lincoln is uttering for each State this broad and unqualisely what the seceding States proclaim. If it is Mr. Lincoln's purpose to mitigate the mistrust and hostility y in the Northern as well as the Southern States, Mr. Lincoln's party has done its best to suppress the friendl
