Douglas at Ottawa.


Thursday, September 30, 1858.

Whilst Mr. Douglas was speaing at Ottawa recently, he took occasion to remark that he would "trot Lincoln down into Egypt this fall, and bring him to his milk." To this a correspondent of the Chicago Tribune replies in this wise:

"Allow me to suggest to our classic Senator that Lincoln's friends who are posted in regard to the ‘time,’ say that he is to ‘come in’ on the 4th of March next, so that any attempt to milk ‘Old Abe’ this fall would be unnatural, unholy and unsafe to the Judge. If Douglas will be patient and wait Lincoln's full time, he shall have some of Abe's best strippings."
