Lincoln's Answers Not Satisfactory.


Thursday, September 30, 1858.

The Marengo Press, a Republican paper recently started in McHenry county, don't like Lincoln's answer to Douglas' questions at Freeport. The Press says they are not republicanism as understood in that quarter. Of the questions and answers, the Press says:

Are such really his views? And are Douglas' much worse? If this is bringing Lincoln to his milk, why the Judge of course has done it; and it proves to be of a quality that some, at least, cannot get down. We think he must have been browsing quite too long in Egypt. Let him be kept till November, in a good Northern pasture. We think it would improve him.
