Robert Lincoln, son of the President elect, who is known now as "Prince Bob," is destined to make his peculiar mark and be remembered by the people wherever he goes. --Of the many good things told of this boy in Buffalo, on Saturday, we heard the following: A few days since, when Mrs. Lincoln was on her way home from New York, attended by her son Robert, she found herself at Buffalo without a pass over the State Line Railroad. For that link in the chain of railway between New York and Springfield no provision had been made. After Mrs. Lincoln had taken her seat in the cars, at Buffalo, for the West, her son Bob entered the office of R. N. Brown, Esq., the gentlemanly Superintendent of the State Line Railroad, and inquired if Mr. Brown was in .. Mr. Brown responded and inquired what was wanted. His interrogator addressed him in substantially the following language: "My name is Bob Lincoln; I'm a son of Old Abe — the old woman is in the cars raising h — l about her passe

The Force wing of the Republicans seem to have him under their control, and, if they can raise the sinews of war, will make an attempt to subjugate the South.
