hat he was accidentally elected President of the United States; that he never aspired to a position of that kinected and elected afterwards as President of the United States; that running that race in a local election his re was not an acre of territory belonging to the United States where the foot of a slave could ever tread; thatn and you are the President of the people of the United States, and I think that some little deference is due tte that has been polled, of 1,100,000 men in the United States."

by ex-Gov. Morehead in his recent Liverpool speech, will be found highly interesting and instructive. It should be read by every one: Mr. Lincoln commenced the conversation, after receiving us very kindly, by stating that he was accidentally elected President of the United States; that he never aspired to a position of that kind; that it had never entered into his head; but that from the fact of his having made a race for the Senate of the United States with Judge Douglas, in the State of Illinois, his name became prominent, and he was accidentally selected and elected afterwards as President of the United States; that running that race in a local election his speeches had been published; and that any one might examine his speeches and they would see that he had said nothing against the interests of the South. He defied them to point out any one sentence in all the various addresses that he had made in that canvass that could be tortured into enmity against the South, except, h

into obedience. He illustrated very distinctly and clearly those three propositions. When the conversation had slackened a little I ventured to appeal to him in a manner in which I never appealed to any other man, and never expect to do again. I said that as to the last proposition I desired to say one word — that I trusted and prayed to God that he would not resort to coercion; that if he did, the history of his Administration would be written in blood, and all the waters of the Atlantic ocean could never wash it from his hands. (Hear, hear, and applause.) He asked me what I would do, and if meant by coercion the collection of the revenue and the taking back of the forts which he said belonged to the United States. I replied that that was the only mode in which was it possible that he could, under the Constitution, resort to coercion — by an attempt to collect the revenue and to take back the forts. He had placed himself in a chair with rounds to it, with his feet upon the

We then, all of us, got up and were standing. I was on the outer circle. He said: "Well, gentlemen, I have been wondering very much whether, if Mr. Douglas of Mr. Bell had been elected President, you would have dared to talk to him as freely as you have to me."

Do that, and give us guarantees, and I can only promise you that whatever influence I possess shall be exerted to promote the Union and to restore it to what it was."

He said: "Well, gentlemen, I have been wondering very much whether, if Mr. Douglas of Mr. Bell had been elected President, you would have dared to talk to him as freely as you have to me." I did not hear the answer, but I am told that Mr. Guthrie answered him about in this way: "Mr. President, if Gen Washington occupied the seat that you will soon fill, and it had been necessary to talk to him as we have to you to save such a Union as this, I for one should talk to him as we have to you." (Hear, hear) That closed the conversation.

It should be read by every one: Mr. Lincoln commenced the conversation, after receiving us very kindly, by stating that he was accidentally elected President of the United States; that he never aspired to in substance this — that it was an exceedingly interesting anecdote, and very apprepes, but not altogether a satisfactory answer to me, and then said to him, "Mr. Lincoln, this to me, sir, is the most serious and all absorbing subject that has ever engaged my attention as a public man. I deprecate and look with horror upon a frat seceding States. "Nay, sir," he said, "old as I am, and dearly as I have loved this Union, in that event I go, with all my heart and soul." (Hear, hear.) Mr. Lincoln jumped up from his chair, as Mr. Rives was standing, advanced one step towards him, and said: "Mr. Rives, Mr. Rives, if Virginia will stay in I will withdraw th

about his identical words. I responded at once to him that I did not intend to recall to him that he was a minority President, but simply to announce the broad fact that he was the President not of the men who voted for him, but of the whole people of the United States, and that of the wishes and feelings and interests of the whole people of the United States--the party with 1,100,000 majority as well as the minority party by whom he was elected, ought to be consulted by him. General Donovan here interposed and presented three alternative propositions to him. First, that be might remain perfectly idle and passive and let the disintegration of the States go on as it had gone on; secondly, give guarantees such as were asked, and bring the whole power of his Administration to bear in obtaining those guarantees; or, thirdly, resort to coercion and attempt to force the seceding States into obedience. He illustrated very distinctly and clearly those three propositions. When
ell me a little anecdote which had happened when he first came to the bar. An old man, he said, had applied to him to bring a suit, and made out a capital case, as he thought; but when the evidence was detailed before the jury it was the worst case he had ever listened to, and while the evidence was going on the old man came, listening to the evidence himself, and whispered in his ear, "Guv it up."--(Laughter) "Now," said he, "Governor, wouldn't this be 'guvin' it up! " I assure you, Mr. Chairman, I don't present it in any light different from that in which it actually acourred — none whatever. I said to him: "Mr. President, it may be said that it would be 'guvin' it up; but hadn't you better 'guv it up' without bloodshed than drench this land with blood, and then have to 'guv it up!'" (Applause) He then asked what he was to do with his oath of office — He said he had sworn to see the laws faithfully executed, and, addressing himself to me, he said: "I would like to know from you
