Re-election of Lincoln. It is almost wonderful how my words are be- ginning to be verified. You will notice that the Cabinet, all the leading Republican statesmen, and all the Republican press, are in the field again for Abraham Lincoln to bere-nominatedand re-elected., It is now a matter of certainty that he will be the Republican candidate. He is their only hope. He is the only man that can keep that party in power and their men in office. It is curious how it has all come about. I am amazed at the game as it now stands. Unless Lincoln and his advisers are all fools they have the game in their own hands. y They cannot lose. I say this with deep regret, for I counted with certainty upon eating cherries at the Hague as American Charge d'Affaires in 1865, when the present Veracious Pike, of the Tribune, would be obliged to leave and come here to do his reporting. But to return to the Presidency. Lincoln must be re-elected unless he throws away his game. There are several Republican States North which will vote for him. He can overawe New York, and frighten Seymour out of his stock- ings, as has lately been seen. He is sure of the forty-six New England votes in the Electoral Col- lege, and he is sure of Mississippi, Tennessee, Maryland, Delaware, and Virginia. He can order the elections in the South—North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, Louisiana, Georgia, Florida, Texas, and Arkansas. Of course, the loyal men will all vote for him. His Congress will declare those votes legal, and whether so or not he can declare them, proclaim himself elected, and, as he has 800,000 soldiers, can keep in for four years after 1865; and I must say he is a great fool if he don't do all this. So far the public is relieved, and the shrewd ones are pretty well satisfied" who will be the next President."
