--The Baltimore Exchange quotes some paragraphs from Lincoln
's Message, and comments thereon as follows:
Of such, and such like stuff as we have quoted and stated, the reader will find the Message full.
Of anything like a truthful statement of the case, as we know it to exist, he will find not one word.
Of the deep and manly sensibility which belongs to so terrible a moment; of the sense of awful responsibility involved in shedding so much blood of brethren, and dedicating so much fair and teeming earth to fire and sword and desolation, he will see not a single trace.
There is neither heart nor soul in the paper from beginning to end, and when it concludes with an expression of "trust in God." we involuntarily look to Heaven for the vengeance which fell on Ananias.
