Douglas and Lincoln.


Tuesday, September 14, 1858.

(From the Missouri Democrat.)

"A foeman worthy of his steel" in all respects is Lincoln, if we can judge from the reported speeches. Comprehensiveness, tact, temper, logic, and a most racy humor distinguishes all his efforts, and render him no unequal match for his adversary, trained athlete though he be and accustomed to conquer. Indeed, so ably is Lincoln conducting his canvass, that if the Issue should be adverse to the Republican party, no shadow of censure can fall on their standard-bearer and no allegation of inferior energy or capacity in comparison with Douglas can be made against him.
