A third gentleman replied that we
had, and he wfbt off and banted p a

would sooa be required. The man from
IlliaoU went down to the colored wo

ahe replied in the affirmative. He weSt
over to the man, and he owned -mp that
he was dead gone. The couple were at
once brought upstairs to the cabin, and
all the passengers collected. We chip

u We publish a novelty in the way of a
letter -written by Jcre Looper of Picjc
ens to President Lincoln in 1663, ac
cepting the terms of his proclamation
to lay down arms and frco his negroes.
Jere was then in tho cavalry company
of Captain Williams, but the Union
sentiments he held before the War were
maintained during the War. Since tho
War he has been a Republican, and
while we differ with him in politics we
must admit this voice from the past dis
plays more sound judgment than our
political leaders exhibited. Following is
Wilmington, N. C, Nov. 18, 1863.

The house in which Lincoln died was
s lodging-house. John Matthews, a
comedian, who was a great friend of
John Wilkes Booth, had rooms there,
and his room was the one in which
President Lincoln died. A few nights
before the assassination John Wilkes
Beoth occepied Matthews' room, and it
fa a curious fact that he slept in the

afterward murdered breathed his last
