bo rendered entirely unnecessary by a
timely ahd authorized announcement from
the head of the incoming Administration,
that the Constitutional rights of the
Southern States and people shall be sa
credly regarded ; that his Administration
is to be truly national ; that the Abolition
traitors of the North are to have no voice

allegiance to tho Constitution by a repeal
of all laws calculated to obstruct a faithful

modern warfare, and all the available
mean of th State used for that purpose.
In addition to the general preparation,
as new, North as well as South."
A few weeks after, Mr. Lincoln, in n
speech at Chicago, commented on ihe
passago which wo have cited from his
Springfield speech, as follows :
u He Mr. Douglas says that I am in
favor of makiug war iiy tho North upon
tho South for tho extinction of slavery ;
that I nm also in favor of inviting, as he
expresses it, tho South to war upon the
North for tho purpose of nationalizing sla
very. Now, it is singular enough, it you
will careful ly read that passage over, that
1 did not say that I was in favor of any
thing in it. f only said what. 1 cxpeclud
would take place, inado prediction only ;
it may have beena foolish ono, perhaps.
I did not even say that I desired that
slavery should be put in course of ultimate ex
tinction. 1 no say so now, however .- there
ne(d be no longer any quibble about that. 1 1
may be written down in the great speech."
ilo told his hearers iu the suuio speech
that he hated slavery as much as any Ab
clitionitt. This was his language:
'lhave always hated slavery as much Ithinh
us any abolitionist I havo been an Old Line
Whig I havo always hated it ; but I have
always been quiet al.ou. it until this new
I would also rocommend that the sorviees i era pf the introduction of tho Nebraska
of ten thousand voluntocrs bo immediate
ly accepted ; that they be organized and
drilled by officers chosen by thomse'.vce,
pnd hold themselves in readiness to bo
called on upon the phortost notice. With
this preparation for defence, and with nil
tho hallowed memories of past achieve
ments, with our love of liberty nnd ha
tred of tyrany, and with tho knowledge
that we are contending for tho safety of
our nomes ana hres:tles, wo enn confidont-
bill begau. 1 always believed that every
body nas against it, and that it was in
courso of ultimite extinction."
The above extracts seem to bo the key
to the new administration. No wonder the
South aro excited at the election of on
Abolition Fresidcnt, who "hates slaveiy
ns much as any Abolitionist."

in the South has been telegraphed North,
and on the night after the election, Mr.
Lincoln was literally carried from his

pressed as to his line of 'policy' in the ad
ministration of the government, and his
reply was, "Havo you read my speeches in

According to the last census, ono mem
ber of Congress is elected for every 1)3,4-10

Congressional representation. In the
slave States, however, nccording to the
Federal Constitution, five slaves count
but three for Congressional representation.
