MR. LINCOLN A BLACK MAN. – The leading article of the Drogheda (Ireland) Argus, dated the first of last month, is devoted to the consideration of the present complication in American politics. The writer’s intelligence may be judged from this simple extract:

The election by the Northern States, of America a black Man as President has at length brought about a state of feeling between the Southern and Northern States which for a long time has been feared, and which threatens to end in the disruption of the American Union. Since the confederation was formed no Presidential election has excited so much party feelings as has the election of Abraham Lincoln, a black gentleman, hiterto unknown out of the State in which he lived – or at least unknown as a public man in Europe.
