Lincoln's Cares.

--No man in this agony, says Mrs. Stone, in the Boston Watchman, has suffered more and deeper, albeit with a dry, weary, patient, pain, that seemed to some like insensibility.--"Whichever way it ends," he said to the writer, "I have the impression that I shan't last long after it is over." After the dread of repulse of Fredericksburg, he said, "If there is a man out of hell that suffers more than I do, I pity him." In those dark days his heavy eyes and worn and weary air told how our reverses wore upon him, and yet there was a never failing fund of patience at the bottom that sometimes rose to the surface in some droll, quaint saying or story, that forced a laugh even from himself.
