in compliance with a recommendation of Congress, the
President appointed General Grant lieutenant-general of
the armies of the United States. When he presented
General Grant with his commission, Mr. Lincoln ad-
dressed him with these words : "The nation's apprecia-
tion of what you have already done, and its reliance upon
you for what still remains to be done, in the existing
great struggle, are now presented with this commission,
constituting you lieutenant-general of the armies of the
United States. With this high honour devolves upon
you also a corresponding responsibility. As the country
herein trusts you, so, under God, it will sustain you. I
scarcely need to add that with what I here speak for
the nation, goes my own hearty personal concurrence."

In the autumn of 1864, Mr. Lincoln was a second time
elected President of the United States, General McClel-
Ian being the opposing candidate. Lincoln received the
votes of all the Northern States except New Jersey and
Delaware.

General Grant, having taken immediate command of
the army of the Potomac, commenced early in May the
ever-memorable campaign of 1864 against Richmond.
After many severe and bloody conflicts, and the display
of consummate military skill on the part of the rival com-
manders, and an obstinate bravery on the part of their
troops, rarely paralleled in the history of warfare, Gen-
eral Lee was at length (April 2, 1865) forced to abandon
the defence of Richmond, which was evacuated the fol-
lowing night, and on the 9th of April he surrendered to
General Grant with all his army. On the i?th of the
same month, General J. E. Johnston, commander of the
southern division of the Confederate army, then in North
Carolina, entered into terms of capitulation with Gen-
eral Sherman, according to which all the Confederate
troops still remaining in the field were to lay down their
arms and return to their respective States. Thus the
war of the rebellion was brought to a close. But, before



the final arrangement between Sherman and Johnston
was completed, the universal joy of the Northern States
was changed into bitter mourning by the death of Presi-
dent Lincoln, who was cut off in the very hour of triumph
by the hand of an assassin. A desperate band of con-
spirators, of whom John Wilkes Booth, a native of
Maryland, was the ringleader, had for some time enter-
tained the design of seizing the President and making
him a prisoner. Finding no opportunity to carry their
purpose into effect, they resolved at length to take his
life. The great object of Lincoln's administration the
restoration of the authority of the government having
been at last accomplished, on the evening of the I4th of
April he sought at Ford's Theatre a brief relaxation from
the duties and cares of his high office. Booth, being an
actor by profession, had free admittance to the theatre.
While the President's attention was absorbed by the
scene before him, the assassin approached him from
behind, unperceived. To make sure of his victim, Booth
discharged his pistol when the muzzle was not more
than a few inches from the head of the President, who,
as the ball entered his brain, sank slightly forward with-
out uttering a sound ; and, although he continued to
breathe for several hours, he was evidently wholly un-
conscious from the time that he received the fatal wound
until his death, which occurred at half-past seven on the
morning of the 1 5th. Mr. Lincoln had often received
anonymous letters threatening him with death ; but his
thoughts were too much occupied with the affairs of
the nation to permit him to feel anxiety for his personal
safety ; and, indeed, it was impossible for him, as he
intimated to some of his friends who urged him to be
more on his guard, to render his life secure without
adopting precautions alike repugnant to his own feel-
ings and to the universal usage of his country. We
believe it is no exaggeration to say that, since the dawn
of history, no more upright or conscientious ruler than
Abraham Lincoln ever presided over the destinies of a
great nation ; nor has there been any more free from
every taint of selfish ambition or personal resentment.

Among the many eminent men who, in their writings
or public speeches, have attempted to portray the char-
acter and commemorate the virtues of President Lincoln,
we know of none who has been more successful than
Mr. Emerson. The admirable fitness of his remarks
must be our apology, if any be needed, for giving the
following extracts from his discourse delivered at the
funeral services held in Concord, Massachusetts, April
19, 1865:

"A plain man of the people, an extraordinary for-
tune attended him. Lord Bacon says, ' Manifest virtues
procure reputation ; occult ones, fortune.' He offered
no shining qualities at the first encounter ; he did not
offend by superiority. He had a face and manner which
disarmed suspicion, which inspired confidence, which
confirmed good will. He was a man without vices. He
had a strong sense of duty, which it was very easy for
him to obey. Then he had what farmers call a 'long
head ;' was excellent in working out the sum for himself,
in arguing his case and convincing you fairly and firmly.
. . . He had a vast good nature, which made him tolerant
and accessible to all. . . . Then his broad good humour,
running easily into jocular talk, in which he delighted
and in which he excelled, was a rich gift to this wise
man. It enabled him to keep his secret, to meet every
kind of man, and every rank in society, ... to mask
his own purpose and sound his companion, and to catch
with true instinct the temper of every company he ad-
dressed. His occupying the chair of state was a triumph
of the good sense of mankind and of the public conscience.
This middle-class country had got a middle-class Presi-
dent at last. Yes, in manners and sympathies, but not
in powers ; for his powers were superior. This man
grew according to the need ; his mind mastered the prob-
lem of the day ; and as the problem grew, so did his
comprehension of it. Rarely was a man so fitted to the
event. ... It cannot be said that there is any exagger-
ation of his worth. If ever a man was fairly tested, he
was. There was no lack of resistance, nor of slander,
nor of ridicule. . . . Then what an occasion was the
whirlwind of the war ! Here was place for no holiday

magistrate, no fair-weather sailor : the new pilot was
hurried to the helm in a tornado. In four years four
years of battle-days his endurance, his fertility of re-
sources, his magnanimity, were sorely tried and never
found wanting. There, by his courage, his justice, his
even temper, his fertile counsel, his humanity, he stood
a heroic figure in the centre of a heroic epoch. He is
the true history of the American people in his time the
true representative of this continent father of his country,
the pulse of twenty millions throbbing in his heart, the
thought of their minds articulated by his tongue."

Lincoln, (BENJAMIN,) an American general, born in
Hingham, Massachusetts, in January, 1733. He was

disabled him for nearly a year. He was appointed to
the chief command of the Southern department about
September, 1778, and defended Charleston against Gen-
eral Prevost in the spring of 1779. In October of that
year General Lincoln and Count D'Estaing made an
unsuccessful assault on Savannah. He was besieged by
Sir Henry Clinton in Charleston, which he was com-
pelled to surrender in May, 1780. He afterwards com-
manded a division at the siege of Yorktown, in October
1781. He had the reputation of an able and prudent
general. In October, 1781, he became secretary of war.
He retired from this office about the end of 1784, and
was elected Lieutenant-Governor of Massachusetts in
1787 by the Federalists. Died at Hingham in 1810.
