No Backing Down!
MR. LINCOLN’S POSITION!
The New York Tribune has the following paragraph, announcing authoritatively the position of Mr. LINCOLN in the present crisis. He is opposed to any backing down, or any compromise of the great principles of Republicanism. Hurrah for Old Abe!
“We are enabled to state in the most positive terms that Mr. Lincoln is utterly opposed to any concession or compromise that shall yield one iota of the position occupied by the republican party on the subject of slavery in the territories, and that he stands now, as he stood in May last, when he accepted the nomination for the presidency, square upon the Chicago platform.”
