Soon after the customary greeting, Mr. Shannon said:-- Mr. President, I met an old friend of yours in California last summer, Thompson Campbell, who had a good deCalifornia last summer, Thompson Campbell, who had a good deal to say of your Springfield life. Ah! returned Mr. Lincoln, I am glad to hear of him. Campbell used to be a dry fellow, he continued. For a time he was Secretary of State. One day, during the legislative vacation, a meek, cadaverous-looking man, with a white neck-cloth, introduced himself to him at his office, and, stating aid I, what think you of that style of preaching?

Finally, he obtained an interview with Mr. Lincoln, and stated his case. Have you applied to General Halleck? inquired the President. Yes, and met with a flat refusal, said Judge B.
