    A CRUMB OF COMFORT FOR MR. SEWARD. – It appears that the Illinois Republican State Convention, the other day, after nominating Abraham Lincoln as the proper person to take the seat of Mr. Douglas in the United States Senate, when his present term shall expire, proceeded to take the sentiments of the delegates on the subject of the presidency, and that the Hon. W. H. Seward “received over five votes to one for any other candidate, and a majority of two to one over all others combined.”
