Lincoln's last call.

Lincoln calls upon his Yankees to volunteer, and if they do not volunteer threatens them with another draft. The volunteering is a farce, and the draft may prove a tragedy. The Yankees are fond of the Anaconda as applied to their enemies, but the Boa Conscriptor, as applied to themselves, is not to their liking. We agree with a Canada journal, that this last call of Lincoln is the best proof of weakness he has yet given. "A little more grape," Capt. Bragg, and the Buena Vista of Yankeedom is certain.
