Let that be 'recorded;''
- We have always maintained, that Hor
es Greeley was right when be mud. ihe
election of Lincoln was oorispileci for. and
rejoiced over by. the engineers of
nion, and that the partisans of the Presi
.dent were wrong when they reprasen
that the rebels preferred McClellan. On
the 10th inst., two days - after election, the
Richmond Etastiner, in the - course of
long article ces the sitostioe before that:lly
said :
. The lines of il(chmond furnish .no
news of the Yankee's election. The ene
=tea, pickets know nothing.of the result.
They were purledto undershsodyrhy,onr
men ; cheered for Lincoln," as i they did
most lustily on the Bib. • The great card
of Lincoln papers in the canvass Was the
pretence that the Southern
,peoples were
extremely anxious that McClellan' should
be elected- that we based. in fact,: our last
hopes on 241eC1ellan—and they hive:not
yet been permitted to know and LtYksan
is precisely the maii we would dome for thew.
On the following day this Tf hiq addi its
views in a similar strain
Prom the Mel:mood Whig, go') 11.
- Our information ispeat to positive that
Lincoln has been re-elected. Few have
doubted that this would be the result, and
fewer !till will regret it.. For ourselvei,
we feel that the great cause for which we
are struggling has escaped a real peril.
The policy oroonciliation, of conoession
and cajolery Which McClellan would have
attempted was something more to 'be
dreaded than Linooln's armies and • navies.
There was • great reasons to apprehend
that eitiih a policy would deceive, demor
ilise-and divide the South. With Lincoln
there is no fear - of this ; ' our people will
continue, to stand as one man ; with him
it is a united South against a. divided
North. With . . McClellan it might have
been-a united North• against a divided
Seutw in which event all that we have
been striving for in this four years' strug
gle would have been lost. But ~,Lincolti
is to continue to be the Master of the

vanishes forever.
And the Enquirer talks in a similar Man%
From the Ridultoad twitarer, Nor. 11.
Lincole hes been re-elected President'
of the United States, His first election
could not surprise any one, for he was
wholly, unknown ;- but his re-election,
after four years' experience of character
end capacity, will not fail to impress the
woHd with a - verylow opinion- of popular
government. So far as - the _ people of these
§,hites ire interested, the reelection of
Lincoln is entirely satisfactory.. For us;
he is the right man in the right plate.
We would not have had him defeated,
but give all the influence of the Enquirer
to him. Our reasons were entirely selfish.
We prefer the management of this war to
rs:mate in the same hands which have di
rected lit - ter the last feur , years. We pre
fer an ignorant brutal fool as commander
in-chief of the enemy to any 'other man.
He -suits us entirely. Gen. McClellan
might have given us more trouble, but we
have taken the measure of Lincoln and
know his entire vrorthleemesa. The four
years mere'of war, which his election now
makes sure, would not have been avoided
by the election — orMcglellan, bat might
have been conducted with much more
ability and given us much more trouble
than Lincoln can possibly' command.
This re-election of Lincoln binds our peo
ple still firmer together, and prevents the
division and disawd• which the election
of McClellan , might have introduced. We
know that it means continued war, and
our country will prepare for it. There is
noprospect for peace, and it is better for
ui that we should know clearly the pur
pose of the enemy in this matter than to
have been divided in opinion .by the
hopes of peace which the defeat of Lin
coln would have raised among our people.
Let our authorities begin immediately
the work of-reorganizing the army, con
solidating the regiments, filling up the
ranks, improving the cavalry and prepar
ing for , the spring campaign. ''7
There have been no doubt those. who
believeithe rebel leaders insincere in their
oft-repeated expfeetious in favor of the
continuance of Mr,_Lincoln in the piesi:
dential chair, an actuated by a desire to
aid the interest 6f. McClellan indirectly.
What thinksuct; S now, after' the event,
when with the administration settled for
four years to come there cannot be the
Alighted motive for diesimulation t- The
engineers of disunion at the /South', have
even greater cause for rejoining now then
; they had in 1860: for then the policy o%
the new President had not been foresha- -
clewed. Now it is fixed; and fixed just as
they would have iL It enables them to
hold Mr. Lincoln up to' their followers as
the "embodiment of the war—the author
of all their woes," and. unityof sentiment
and action in . „ . -reefitanoet follows as natu
rally as water .. . finds: itelevel.- • It is now of
no advantage,ritelitically, to dwell upon
'this important fact ; but it-sustains the
position Which the Deimocraey held
through the cannel, and the sooner It is
recognized ,by the people of the North
the better.
The administration papers are - olaiming
that the result of the late election is an
overwhelming popular indorsement of
Mr. Lincoln's policy. It is no such thing.
The overwhelming popular majority does
not exist.. In many of the states the vote
is close, and it is "doubtful whether the
Republican majority on the popular vote
dell the states entitled to participate in
the election is more than 200,000, if it
is that much. Allowing - that the votes' of
these states is as large as that oast sby
them in 1860, the total vote at that time
being 3,754,770, Mr. Lincoln's 'majority,
estimating-it at the figure given above, is
only 'five and one-half per cent. of the
whole votl, and is likely to be less 'than
thst. When the immense efforts employ
ed-to secure/fr. Lincoln's reelection are
considered, ;the majority obtained by him
must be regarded as small indeed,rand
anything but a strong popular indprae
