Politics of the President.

One of the most ingenious devices for accounting for the present volcanic state of the country, is that the Democracy have created the disturbance because they were defeated in the Presidential election. What exquisite nonsense! Was not the National Whig party also defeated? Moreover, does any man in his senses suppose that if John Bell and Edward Everpt had been elected, any party in the country would have cried out for Secession or Revolution! They were National men, Lincoln is a Sectional man, and his election an avowed sectional triumph. Some of the strongest supporters of Bell and Everett are the leading secessionists in the South.
