    MR. LINCOLN’S VIEWS. – Our readers have probably noted the contradictory despatches respecting Mr. Lincoln’s desires as to the time and manner of a settlement between North and South. In the last Observer we gave the substance of a compromise proposition by Mr. Kellogg of Illinois, just returned from a visit to the President elect, and of this the Washington correspondent of the N. Y. Express says: --

    “Mr. Kellogg’s resolutions, presented to-day, are significant of the wishes of the President elect, and are undoubtedly offered in accordance with his wishes. The Tribune will rave against them, of course, and quote any quantity of Lincoln’s declarations to prove that he is opposed to them. But in vain. Lincoln’s friends in Congress know what they are about, and will not be driven from their present attitude by any threats from the Hon. Mr. Greeley.”
