Tuesday, September 28, 1858.
Mr. LINCOLN is winning golden opinions in the present canvass. We all know him to be the very soul of honor, perfectly upright and downright in all his actions, and a thorough gentleman whether on or off the stump. But, the consummate ability which he has evinced has surprised many of his friends. There are few men in the Union who could have so thoroughly and completely used up the Little Giant as Mr. Lincoln has done, and his speeches in this canvass will give him a national reputation which any man could well be proud of. He will worthily represent our State in the Senate, and Illinois, with Trumbull and Lincoln as its Senators, will not rank second in any State in its influence in our National Councils.
