LINCOLN'S HOMELY I'llllASKS.
In Midsummer Holiday
In his letter declining an Invitation to
the Illinois RepuMlMn Convention, In
18011, Iitncotn made mo of two or three
striking Inures, Reviewing tlio military
event of the ymtyear, wlilcli liad been fav
ojable to the ennae of the Union , ho tal.l :
"The lather of waters again goes unvexed
to the en," And, referring to the fact that
Southern Unionists and ex-hvci had done
something to help on the good ivorlr, he
said: "On the spot, their part of the history
Is dotted down in black and white." There
was something In the phrase 'dotted down
li black and white" which mightily tickled
tho popular fancy. At the time, however,
criticism was provoked by this odd figure
employod by the President: "Nor must
Uncle Sam's web-feet be forgotten. At nil
the watery margins they havo 'beeu present
not only on tho deep sea, the broad bay, tho
rapid river, but nlsu up the narrow, muddy
layou, and whenever the ground was a lit
tle damp, they have Wn and made their
tracks,' Lincoln was amused by tho discus
slon lu the newspapers to which the use of
the phrase 'Uncle Sam's web-feet' gave rise.
Ho explained the remarkable feats perform
ed by tho gnu boats. In making their way
through sloughs aud bayous, heretofore con
sidered unnavlgablc, reminded him of the
stealthy passage of water-fowl. The pleas
antry concerning light-draught Reamers
going where 'the ground is a little damp, Is
familiar to everybody.
It will be a long time before our people
will forget Lincoln's homely simile of 'eld
eMsqulrts charged with rose-water," as ap
plied to the conservative programme for
prosecuting the war. This was used in a
letter addressed to Cuthbert Bullitt, of New
Orleans, In which letter ho also said that
the conservative wtre like complaining pas
sengers on'a ship 'The mutineers must go
untouched lest one of these sacred passen
gers should receive an accidental wound.'
His Imagination was powerfully stimulated
by any reference to the history of the repub
lic. His address at Olettipburp, now one of
the great historical speeches of the world,
suggests, rather than expresses a crowd of
images. To Lincoln's wind, apparently,
American history was filled with noble and
pathetic figures. In tome of the loftier
flights of his eloquence may be fouud traces
of a strong poetic fancy an imagination
fired by love of country, and Inspired by the
contemplation of the stirring events 'that
have marked its history No more striking
example of this can be found anywhere than
in the memorable) words which closed his
first inaugural address:
'The mystic chords of memory, stretching
from every battle field and patriot grave to
every living heart and hearth-stone, all over
this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of
the Union, when again touchedjas surely
they will be, by the better angles of our na
now EASY IT IS TO BE GUILLOTINED.
The refusal of the parricide Laprade to be
guillotined recalls the man "guillotined by
persuasion," of Chavette.
'But I say, you know, said the execution'
er. 'everybody is waiting. The magistrates
are there, the clergy are there, the soldiers
(who are to present arms to you just as it
you were the President of the Republic) are
there everybody is there. All they are
waiting for is you only you.'
'I duu't' know' replied the condemned
'I'm a new executioner; you are the first
person I've had to guillotino; give mo i
good send-off, can't you? Just put your
self in my place'
'You just put yourself in mine.'
'It can't be any question of.expense; don't
you know that every thine Is paid ? It won't
cost you a penny ; the State stands treat.
