; Of all the anniversaries of the Decla

upon which yow assemble. Four years of

I believe that God seut this' people on a
mission among the nations of the earth.
He founded its perpetuity.1 " ' ": '

struggle that has passed. " It sustains me

that whatever means He uses,' the Al
mighty is determined to preserve us as a

our folio cititfens bear their country, and
the sacrifices they have madts for it, my
abiding iaith baa baenmu ctrotiger than
ever, that a Government of the people is
the strongest, as well as the best Govern
ment. ' ;'
Iu otlr joj to-nsorrow, I trtist you will
not forget tbe thousands of whites as

pated, ffiho will hail this Fourth of July
with a delight which no previous anni

Controlled eo lorjg by ambitious, selfish
leaders, who used them for their owe un
worthy ends, they are now free to serve

greatly mistaken if, in the States lately

have an exhibition' of such loyalty g;Hd

i LINCOLN'S VIEWS OS NEGRO SUFFRAGE.
The most important expression ' of
j President Lincoln's views on the question
'of negro suffrage' has just been' given to
j the public in a letter which he wrote to
Governor Ilaha of Louiiaai. It is ti
' follows :
WAsiiixTON, March 13, '54 j
Him. MirJtarF Iluhn :
ly dear Sir : I congratulate you cn
having fixed your name in history as the
first ftce State Governor of Louisiana,
now you are thoit to have a convention
which, among either tilings, will probably
define the elective franchise.
1 barely fctlrT5'.- 'or your private con
sideration, whether some of the oolorei
people may net be let in, aa, for instance,
the very intelligent, and especially those
who have fought truliantly in our ranks
They would probably kelp in some trying
time to come to keep the- jewell of Lib
erty In tfcs farSily dl' rsed-jm. But this
is only a suggestion, not to the public,
but to you alone.
. -THREE VIEWS-
That wo may know what dependence
hereafter to placet iu the oracular utter
ances of tne great Cockney Thunderer,
let us here quote some of its fulmioations
at three periods of the war :
tom the London Times, Kot . 2$t '60.
' It is evident on the smallest reflection
that tlia South, evea if united, could nev
er resist for three months tbe greatly
prepondering strength of the North."
From th. London Timet, Spt. 14, '64
"The publio will admit that they have
not been misguided by our comments.
Wc said that the North could never sub
due the South and the North has now
proclaimed the sathe coneluvion."
Prom the London timtt, April 10, '15.
"The catastrophe seems complete, and
i n all its accessories calculated to impress
people with a feeling that toe work is 10
eomplished: and that the civil war is really
at an end."
la the beautiful consiatcucy of thesg
prophetic orucles is there not food enough
for an immense laueh?
