Hon. Owen Lovejoy was asked what he thought of Senator Seward's speech, noted somewhat for its conciliatory tone. “We want,” said Lovejoy, “no Melancthons now; we want Martin Luthers. We want no one to write essays upon the Union and the sin and disasters of secession, but some one to throw the inkstand right at the Devil's bead.” --N. Y. Times, Jan. 16.
