ere, the telegram came in announcing the nomination of Johnson. What! said he to the operator, do they nominate a Vice-President before they do a President? Why! rejoined the astonished official, have you not heard of your own nomination? It was sent to the White House two hours ago. It is all right, was the reply; I shall probably find it on my return. Laughing pleasantly over this incident, he said, soon afterward,--A very singular occurrence took place the day I was nominated at Chicago, four years ago, of which I am reminded to-night. In the afternoon of the day, returning home from down town, I went up-stairs to Mrs. Lincoln's sitting-room. Feeling somewhat tired, I lay down upon a couch in the room, directly opposite a bureau upon which was a looking-glass. As I reclined, my eye fell upon the glass, and I saw distinctly two images of myself, exactly alike, except that one was a little paler than the other. I arose, and lay down again, with the same result. It made

Li. The Baltimore Convention, which renominated Mr. Lincoln, was convened July 7, 1864. It created comparatively little excitement in Washington or elsewhere, as the action of the various State legislatures and local mass meetings had prepared the public mind for the result. Toward evening of the 8th,--the day the nominations were made,--Major Hay and myself were alone with the President in his office. He did not seem in any degree exhilarated by the action of the convention; on the contrary, his manner was subdued, if not sad. Upon the lighting of the gas, he told us how he had that afternoon received the news of the nomination for Vice-President before he heard of his own. It appeared that the despatch announcing his renomination had been sent to his office from the War Department--while he was at lunch. Afterward, without going back to the official chamber, he proceeded to the War Department. While there, the telegram came in announcing the nomination of Johnson. What!

Judge Kelley concluded; but one or two expressions, and the manner accompanying them, showed that the sentiments of the writer of the letter were gratefully appreciated. The day following the adjournment at Baltimore, various political organizations called to pay their respects to the President. First came the Contention Committee, embracing one from each State represented,--appointed to announce to him, formally, the nomination. Next came the Ohio delegation, with Menter's Band, of Cincinnati. Following these were the representatives of the National Union League, to whom he said, in concluding his brief response:-- I do not allow myself to suppose that either the Convention, or the League, have concluded to decide that I am either the greatest or the best man in America; but, rather, they have concluded that it is not best to swap horses while crossing the river, and have further concluded that I am not so poor a horse, but that they might make a botch of it in trying to s

Another incident, which occurred in the course of the day, created considerable amusement. When the Philadelphia delegation was being presented, the chairman of that body, in introducing one of the members, said: Mr. President, this is Mr. S-, of the Second District of our State

he date. W. Brooks's statement that Mrs. Lincoln was troubled about it, regarding it as a sign that Mr. Lincoln would be reelected, but would not live through his second term, is undoubtedly correct. A little later in the evening, the Hon. Mr. Kelley, of Philadelphia, came in. As he sat down, he took a letter out of his pocket, saying: Mr. President, while on a visit home, a week or two ago, I took up a number of the Anti-Slavery Standard, in which there happened to be a communication from nti-slavery convictions and purposes; and appreciation of the difficulties which had environed him,--presenting, in this respect, a marked contrast to the letters and speeches of many of the so-called radicals. Mr. Lincoln said but little, as Judge Kelley concluded; but one or two expressions, and the manner accompanying them, showed that the sentiments of the writer of the letter were gratefully appreciated.
