Mr. Lincoln at Beardstown.


Tuesday, August 31, 1858.

Hearty commendations of Mr. Lincoln come up on every breeze. A correspondent of the New York Evening Post says: "Mr. Lincoln is always a popular speaker, but never before has he gained such a strong hold on the masses. His speech at Beardstown on the 12th, was every way a great affair. The audience was large, and the enthusiasm was unbounded." Accounts from all parts of the State, yet visited agree, that Mr. Lincoln is making a most successful canvass.
