In lots Ruo feb. 15.�?the following is the full report of the speech made by or. Lincoln in this City yesterday. All immense crowd gathered in front of the Mon in Valiela i , and when or. Lincoln appeared he was greeted with vociferous cheering. Or. Lincoln then addressed the As follows mayor Wilson and citizens of think Liis Honor. Mayor Wilson and the citizens of in itt Surg generally for this flattering reception. It is the More grateful a cause i know that while it is not Iven me alone hut to the cause i represent yet it is Iven under circumstances that clearly prove to me that there is Good will and sincere feeling at the Bottom of it. Enthusiastic applause and Here i May remark that in every Short address i have made to the people in every crowd through which i i have passed of late some allusion has been made to the present distracted stale of the country. It is naturally exp cled that i should say something upon this in Hejcl but if i touch upon it All it would involve an elaborate discussion. The great number of tie questions and circumstances would require More Lime than i can at present command and i would to craps unnecessarily commit in Yscle upon Mattura that have not yet fully developed themselves immense cheering and cries of Good a a that s the condition of tie country is an extraordinary one and fills the mind of every Patriot with anxiety and solicitude. My intention is to give the subject All the consideration that i possibly can before i speak fully and definitely in regard to it. Cheers so that when i do speak i May be As nearly right As pos Siide. Loud and continued applause when i do speak. I Hope i will nothing in opposition to the spirit of the Constitution or contrary to the integrity of the Union or which will Jerore inimical to the liberties of the people or to the peace of the Wii Ole country. Vociferous applause and furthermore when the time arrives for me to speak on this great subject i Hope i Wili say not Liing to disappoint die people generally Liroi Ighut the country especially if their expectations have been based upon anything which i May have heretofore Sai i. Applause notwithstanding the troubles across the River the speaker pointing South Wardly to the and smiling there is really no crisis except an artificial one. Laughter and applause what is Luiere now to warrant the condition of affairs presented by our friends Over the River take even to Weir own View of the questions involved there is nothing to justify the course they Ore pursuing. A voice a a that so a repeat then that there is no crisis excepting such a one As May be gotten up at any time by turbulent men aided Liy designing politicians. My advice then under the circumstances is to keep Cool. If tie great american people Only keep their temper on both sides of uie line these troubles will come to an end and the question that now distracts the country will be settled just As surely at All other difficulties of a like have originated in the government have been adjusted. Let the people on both sides keep their self Possession adjust As other Clouds have cleared an a in due time so will this and this great nation continue to Prosper As heretofore. Loud applause but fellow citizens i have spoken longer on this subject than i intended in the outset. Cries of a go on go i shall say no More at present. Fellow citizens As Liis is the first Opimo Unity i have had to address a Pennsylvania assemblage it seems a fitting time to indulge in a few remarks on the important question of the Tariff a subject of great magnitude and one attended with Many difficulties owing to the great variety of interests involved. So Long As direct taxation for the support of the government is not resorted to a Tariff is necessary. A Tariff is to tie government what meat is to a family but while this is admitted it still becomes necessary to modify or change its operations according As new interests or new circumstances arise. So far there is Little difference of opinion among it politicians. But the question As to How far in it osts May he adjusted for the Protection of Home i Industry gives Rise to nume Rous views and objections. I Mosst confess that i do not understand the subject in All its multiform hearings but i Promise you Liat i will give it my closest attention and Endeavor to comic resend it More fully. And Here i May remark that the Chicago platform contains a Plank upon this subject which i think should be regarded As a Law Tor the incoming . Immense demonstrations of in fact this question As Well As All other subjects embodied in that platform should not be varied from what we gave the people to understand would be our policy Baltimore 6s�78. Fish oils closed quiet but Pri serve sacred the rights transmitted us and show 8s it a san u st Civ Southern valor still shines As brightly As in a pentane Stead seventeen Hundred and seventy six in eighteen in resents to Large number of presents have been received by or. Lincoln within the last few Days. The More noteworthy among them Are a Complete suit manufactured under the auspices of Titsworth amp bro., of Chicago and to be worn by excellency on the 4th of March and another two Hundred Dollar Cane from California. The Cane was expressed to or. Lincoln without any explanations As to the name of the donor a. The oddest of All gifts to tie president elect came to hand however in the course of yesterday morning. It was no More nor less than a whistle made ont of a pigs Tail. There is no a a sell in this your correspondent has seen the tangible refutation of the time honoured saying that no a whistle can be made out of a pigs Tail with own eyes. The donor of the novel instrument is a prominent Ohio politician residing at columns and connected with the state government. Or. Lincoln enjoyed the joke Bugel ?. After practising upon the masterpiece of human ingenuity for nearly an hour this Mornine he Joc Osely remarked that he had never suspected up to this time that a a there was music in such a thing As correspondent. _ the inauguration Ball contract for the erection of the building in which to hold the Union inauguration Ball has been awarded to messes.

Medill editorial correspondent of the Chicago Tribune in a bib the latter received some pretty severe blows about the head and face before the bystanders could interpose successfully. A the affair it appears grew out of what or. K. Considered personal remarks about in the Washington correspondence of the paper above mentioned in regard to Bis late course in the House of representatives with reference to the National troubles. Last night the two met at the National and or. Kellogg requested Medill to step aside with As he alleges to remonstrate with about the matter and try to bring about an understanding.

Lincoln a speeches yet had they tried to do their worst no greater torture could have been inflicted upon a Many swords than that to which they subject the Public addresses of the president elect. Important passages Are mutilated words snipped out meanings perverted and general confusion produced. The superintendents of Tho telegraphic lines will per form a valuable service if they will instruct their operators to exercise greater care daring the remainder of or.

Marr introduced a series of resolutions declaring that Virginia cherished a devoted attachment to the Union and will make any sacrifice consistent with Honor to restore and maintain it but declares her opposition to coercion and is determined not to submit to any administration of the government in which her Rigits Are assailed or not fully protected and if the Union cannot be restored on terms honorable to All its component parts it shall be divided. Or. Morton presented resolutions declaring that Virginia will not submit to the coercion of the seceded states on any pretext and protests against the use of the army and Navy to coerce Auy state now in or out of the Union. She desires to restore the Federal Union and preserve it upon terms of safety and Honor to All its members but if the at the same Cost it follows that if the English bar be shipped from manc Liester to Pittsburg and the american bar from in itt Surg to Manchester the Cost of Carriage is tip reliably lost. Laughter if we had no Iron Liere then we should encourage the shipment from a foreign country.

The Tariff Bill now before Congress May or May not pass at the a present Sissi ii.

It May or May not become the Law of the land but if it does pass that will he an end of the matter until a modification can be effected should that he deemed necessary. If it docs not pass and the latest advices i have Are to the effect that it is still pending the next Congress will have to give it the earliest attention. According to my political education i am inclined to believe that Tho people in the various sections of the country should have their own views carried out through their representatives in Congress. If the consideration of the Tariff Hill should be postponed until the next session of the National legislature no subject should engage your representatives More closely Tolian Liat of the Tariff. If i have any recommendation to make it will be that every Man who is called upon to serve the people in a representative Cai Lacity should study the whole subject thoroughly As i intend to do myself looking to the varied interests of the common country so that when the time for action arrives to advocate that Protection May be extended to the Coal and Iron of Pennsylvania the Corn of Illinois and the reapers of Chicago. Permit me to express the Hope that Liis important subject May receive Sulci consideration at the hands of your representatives that the interests of no part of the country May be Over looked but that All sections May share in the benefits of a just and equitable Tariff.

Of the eleventh amendment to the Constitution we Are at at a loss to understand Bow the impression that the Federal government possessed Power to coerce a state could have obtained credence. Or. Leake presented a Resolution declaring that if the Federal government undertake to forcibly retake the forts in the seceding states Virginia will regard it As an invasion of the rights of the Southern states and if the government undertakes to collect duties in the seceding states Virginia will regard such acts As coercion and is hereby pledged to resist with All the Means in her Power. Or. Richardson presented resolutions declaring Thattie compact has been repeatedly violated and repudiated by the North and is not binding on the other parties thereto that the peaceable withdrawal of the Southern states is justifiable that we will resist the coercion of such states that it is the duty of the North at once to concede such guarantees As will prevent the recurrence of wrongs and secure our equal rights that the failure to do so is an evidence of indifference or hostility which is alike fatal to our peace and Prosperity that in View of these truths we demand the speedy Security of our rights and Honor in default of which we will dissolve our connection with those who first wantonly wrong is and then obstinately persevere in injury and that Virginia be forthwith put in condition of defence.

The Large numbers that live turned out under these circumstances testify that you Are in Earnest about something or other. But do i think so meanly of you As to suppose that earnestness is about me it Erson Aliy i should be doing you injustice to suppose that you did. You have assembled to testify your respect to the Union the Constitution and the Laws and Here let me say that it is with you the people to Advance the great cause of the Union and the Constitution and not with any one Man. It rests with you alone. This fact a strangely impressed on my mind at present. In a Community like this whose appearance testify to their intelligence i am convinced that the cause of Liberty and the Union can never be in danger. Frequent allusion is made to the excitement at present existing in National politics. It is Well that i should allude to it Here. I think there is no occasion for any excitement. The crisis As it is called is altogether an artificial crisis. In All parts of the nation there Are differences of opinion. Even Here you did not Alt vote for the person who now addresses you. And How is it with those who Are not Here have they not Alt their rights As they Ever have had ? do they not have their fugitive slaves returned now As they Ever did f have they not the same const Mtnlion that they have lived under for the last seventy Odd years f have they not a position As citizens of this common country and have we any Power to change that position ? cries no what then is the matter with them Why All this excitement Why All these complaints f a i said before this crisis a All artificial. It has no foundation in fact. It was Quot argued up a a the saying is and cannot be argued Down. Let it alone and it will go Down itself. F laughter or Lincoln said that they must be Content with but few words from . He was very much fatigued and had spoken so frequently that he was already ii Oarse. He thanked them for the cordial the magnificent reception they had Given . And not less did he thank them for the votes they gave last fall and quite As much he thanked them for the efficient Aid they had Given the cause which he represented a cause which he would say was a Good one. He had one More word to say. He was Given to understand that this reception was tendered not Only by own party supporters but by men of All parties. This is As it should be. If judge Douglas had been elected and had been Here on Way to Washington As i am to night the republicans would live joined in welcoming justas friends have joined with mine tonight. If All do not join now to save the Good old ship of the Union this voyage nobody will have a Chance to Pilot her another. He concluded by thanking or All present for the Devotion they bad shown for the cause of the Union at the close of the speech or. Lincoln was pre rented with several splendid bouquets and Floral wreaths. A of great cheer was sent up by the crowd for Iii cols my be Union. Georgia. The soil Hern Banner published at Athens g.i., in an article on free Trade says but with free Trade conies direct taxation and a great clamor will be raised at that. Under Ordinary circumstances our people would not submit to this method of raising the Revenue nor Are we prep Arcil to advocate it As a permanency in our governmental policy. But our government Tonsi be set in motion we must be recognized by the great european Powers and if free Trade will Compass these ends surely and speedily let us adopt it temporarily at least. Revolutions cannot be inaugurated and successfully consummated without some hardships and sacrifices and the patriotism of our people will we know Sanction any policy no matter How Many sacrifices it May entail when they arc assured that it will be but temporary and that its Workings will in the end strengthen and promote Llie Best interests of their country.

On the other Liand a Ierma neat officer of the army Here states that general Scott will try to bring All the forces out of Texas and leave that state to the mercy of the indians and that the Daniel Webster has not gone to the above destination. The latter Rumor is fast gaining ground As some a half Pilot men Are on Board. The most intense excitement prevails in army circles on the subject among the persons who returned from fort York express saturday even ing fort Sumter. The time approaches when fort Sumter will probably be attacked. Let the assailants remember Llinat the Garrison Are in the main poor hirelings bound to obey the orders of their superiors and doubtless not disposed to fight if they could avoid it. That they Are not responsible for the acts of tie president or of the United states and that not one of them should be put to death but As a necessary measure to secure the fort to South Carolina. Let no tone be killed after the fort is surrendered let As Little blood be shed As possible. A. B. Longstreet. The above card from judge Longstreet appears in tie Mercury As an advertisement.

Sherman from the committee on ways and Means will press Bis fifty Dollar Treasury note proposition notwithstanding the proposition already initiated. The Bill will come up on monday or tuesday next. The passage of or. Sherman a proposition will enable those of the great middling classes of the North who believe in Republican principles to participate in the Effort of rescuing the government from its present financial dilemma. The Republican conference to night to which at least one democratic member of the House has been invited will probably determine the course of the majority in Congress in this respect. Miscellaneous. A prominent Republican member of Congress says or. Lincoln a speech at Indianapolis is not to be construed into meaning coercion that mind is not a direct one and that he always attempts to accomplish a thing by circumlocution that while be o Penly with party Clear up to the Chicago platform be secretly favors measures of Compromise.
