Mr. Lincoln, after assisting in raising
the American Flag over Independence
Hall, proceeded to address the people.
He adverted .feelingly to the place in
which he was standing. His political
opinions had been drawn from the senti
ments which originated in and were giv
en to the world from that Hall. He had
never entertained a political feeling that
did not emanate from sentiments embod
ied in the declaration of Independence
Alter dwelling at some length upon this
theme, he said, now, ray friends, can
this country be saved upon this basis?
If it can, I will consider myself one of
the happiest of men. But if it cannot
be saved on this principle then it will be
truly awful. If it cannot, I would I was

the present aspect of affairs there need

St. Louis, Feb. 25.
A dispatch from Philadelphia, of the
23d, says: it was reported that Mr. L.
passed through that city in the 11 o'clock
train of the previous night for Baltimore;
according to a Pittsburg the people of
that city were astonished yesterday morn
ing by the announcement of Mr. L's de
parture. The committee of reception,
composed of several distinguished. Re.
publicans, arrived from Baltimore to find
Mr. L. gone; his family and the remain
der of the party remained in Harrisburg,
and left on the regular train for Balti
more and Washington along with the
Baltimore reception committee ; it is said
the latter feel very indignant at the want
of confidence evinced by Mr. L. in the
citizens of Baltimore; though it Is under
stood that he was opposed to it but was
overruled by other parties; on the arrival
of the regular train at York, Pa., it was
announced that Mr. L. was not on board.
On arriving at the depot in Baltimore a
crowd completely blocked the way and
greeted the train with groans on learning
that Mr. L. was not onboard. In Wash
ington not a little excitement prevailed
as soon as it became known that L. had
arrived in the early train, and it was un
successfully saught to conceal the fact, es
pecially from the press; his presence was
first communicated to a few political
friends in confidence, he was met at the
Station House by several gentlemen of
destinction without any formality, and was
immediately driven to Willard's Hotel.
Preparations had been made to meet him
at the station house, and the Mayor of
Washington was to have made him a wel
come address. '
During his brief interview with the
President Senator-Bigler and John Coch
rane happened to be at the White House
when he entered, and were accordingly
introduced to the President elect.
It is stated in the Washington telegram
that Mr.. L, was advised by telegraph to
hasten on to that city.
A dispatch from Baltimore states that
arrangements had been made there for
securing to Mr. L. a respectful transit
through that city, the police force had
been called out fully equipped,- and all
good citizens were anxious no indignity
should be manifested ; the only fear en
tertained was that certain disreputable
parties, who lately attached themselves
to the Republican organization in that
city and who were expected to make a
demonstration, would have aroused a bad
feeling in the minds of some, and proba
bly have caused a disturbance, otherwise
there was no reason to apprehend any
The N. Y. Times' Washington corres
pondence makes a statement thus given
in telegrams received last night in St.
Louis : On Thursday night, after he had
retired, Mr. L. wasaroused and informed
that a stranger desired to see him on a
matter of life and death, he declined ad
mitting him unless he gave his name,
which was at once given ; such a prest
age did the name carry that while Mr.
L. was yet disrobed he granted an inter
view to the caller, a prolonged conversa
tion elicited the fact that an orjranized
body of men had determined that Lincoln
should not be inaugurated, and that lie
should never leave Baltimore if indeed
he ever entered it. The list of names of
the conspirators presented a most aston
ishing array of persons high in southern
confidence, and some whose fame is not
confined to this country alone, statesmen!
laid the plan, bankers endorsed it and ad-!
venturers were to carry it into effect, as!
they understood L. was to leave Harris
burg at 9 this morning by special train
and the idea was if possible to throw the i
tram from the road at some point where
they could rush down the embankment
and destroy in a moment all on board.
In case of the failure of this project,
their plan' was to , surround the carriage
on its way from Depot to Depot in Balti
more, atd assassinate him with pistols or.
daggers. So authentic wa3 the source
through which information was obtained,
that Lincoln, after counseling with his
friends, was compelled to make arrange
ments that would enable him to subvert
the plans of his enemies. Greatly to the
annoyance of thousands last night, he de
clined a general reception. The final
counsel was held at 8 o'clock. Mr. X.
did not want to yield, and Cel. Summer
actually cried with indignation, but Mrs
L., seconded by Mr. Juddand Mr. Lin
coln's original informant, insisted upon
it, and at 9 o'clock he left on a special
train. He wore Scotch plaid and a very
long military cloak, so that he was enti
rely unrecognisable. Accompanied by
Supt. Lewis and one friend, he staited
while all the town, -with the exception of
Mrs. Lincoln, Gol. Summer, Mr. Judd,
and two reporters who were m the sec
recy, supposed him to be asleep. Tel
egraph wires were put beyond the reach
of any one who might desire to use
The Phil. Evening Bulletin of yester
day contains a dispatch from Washington
to the effect that in the Peace Congress
Chase offered a proposition that it is in
expedient to proceed to the consideration
of matters unless all the States partici
pate, and that ample time may be afford
ed for deliberation, therefore Resolved,
That the Couference adjourn to the. 4th
of April. An exciting debate arose up
on the proposition, but there is a prospect
of its adoption.
The bids for the eight million loan

and a half. Understood to be rejected.

Senate with amendments.
Mr. John Cochrane appealed to Sher
man to let the matter stand over till
Monday, to afford an opportunity for ex
amination, stating that there was no ae-
sire to make factious opposition.
Mr. Sherman was pleased to hear
this, .though he thought that if the bill
was not at once acted upon, it might fail
for want of time.
The House, by 93 against 26, took up
the bill and proceeded to the first amend
ment, making a reduction on the loan of

A distinguished Alabamian, who was

to a friend in this city: You may suppose
that there is a chance to rebuild the Union,
not only is there no possibility but no pro
bability of such an event ; we do not be-
icve that the North will g-ive us any sub
stantial guarantees, and we could not
trust them if they did. The idea that
seems to have taken possession of the
Peace Congress, as it is called, that we
will be satisfied with the prohibitioe North
or 38 30 and squatter sovereignty South
of that line is a gross insult to our under
standing. Be assured we have no idea
of accepting such terms. Our friends,
outside of theseceeding States, should be
apprised of this fact. We have lost all
hope of an amicable adjustment, and are

trator of the dispute. .

Mr. Lincoln visited the Senate and
House this morning with Mr. Seward, it
created quite a stir, many crowded around
to welcome him, especially in the House,
he staid but a few - moments, and then
visited the Snpreme Court room.
House The tariff bill was considered
and about 50 of the Senate amendments
acted upon in committee of the whole,
when the committee rose and reported the
whole subject to the House.
Mr. Sherman said though he objected
to many of the amendments yet under the
circumstances he would urge their imme
diate passge and vote for them, believing
that the very existance of the government
depended on the passage of the bill,,
which is substantially the act of 1517.
When the present administration came
into power the public dept was 22 million
with nearly 18 million in the Treasury,!
but now the public debt is 9G million and
the smallest possible amount the govern- j
ment can get along with the nest fiscal j
year is 53 millions ; he looked upon its
passage as a necessity.
