INTERESTING FROM SPRINGFIELD.
VISITORS TO THE PRESIDENT ELECT.
HON. DAVID WILMOT AND THE CABINET, ETC.
SPRINGFIELD, Ill., Monday, Dec. 24.
Senator BAKER, of Oregon, and DAVID WILMOT, of Pennsylvania, arrived here from the East this morning. Mr. BAKER’S visit is of a purely private character.
Mr. WILMOT came by invitation of the President elect, who called upon him at his hotel immediately after his arrival, and spent some five hours with him in the course of the day. It is certain that Mr. WILMOT will represent the republican banner State in the Cabinet, but no definite position is as yet assigned to him. He returns East this evening.
It is now understood that one after the other of the gentlemen selected for the Cabinet will be summoned hither.
