President Lincoln's last.--The President looks haggard and careworn — who wonders at it?--yet he preserves his good nature, and some new story or bon mot from him is always in circulation. The last was uttered on Saturday, at the public reception, when a Western paymaster, in full major's attire, was introduced, and said: “Being here, Mr. Lincoln, I thought I'd call and pay my respects.” “From the complaints of the soldiers,” responded the President, “I guess that's about all any of you do pay.” --Washington Correspondent Boston Journal.
