--The Ohio Abotitionists were particularly jubilant in regard to what that State was going to do. They were ready to furnish hundreds of thousands of men, and millions upon millions of money, at an instant's notice. The following, from leading Lincoln journal of Ohio, is rather significant:

When the Legislature authorized Gov. Dennison to borrow $3,000,000, it was supposed that the Ohio banks would fly to the relief of the State, her patriotic soldiers, and the nation whose existence was to be tested by blood. No men were so wild and devilish in crying traitor, no party now all country — life, property, everything, must be put at the service of the country.

Now, what have we witnessed? The Governor made calls, proclamations, orders, and what he could not do Gen. Carrington was on hand to do for him; the Legislature passed laws; the people rushed to arms by thousands, and all went on swift as the running tide. At last the bonds were ready and the money was called for. The Ohio bankers met here last week, entered into deep and solemn consultation, and subscribed three hundred thousand dollars
