    We commend to any of our readers who have been bitten by the absurd notion that Mr. Douglas has any concern for the extension and perpetuation of free institutions, the perusal of that portion of Mr. Lincoln’s Cincinnati speech which we publish to-day. If it does not cure them of the heresy into which they have fallen there is no hope for the relief of stupidity like theirs. The gods would war against it in vain.
