The Lincoln journals labor with untiring assiduity to maintain the long ago exploded falsehood of a Union party in the South as if it were the most manifest and undeniable truth. They say there is a powerful Union feeling even in the heart of Secessia, and that all that is necessary to developed it is the presence of Federal troops.
