["We learn by despatch from Washington that the Governorship of Oregon . . . has been tendered to the Hon. A. Lincoln, of this city. Mr. Lincoln being absent from home, we have no means of knowing, for a certainty, whether he will accept it or not. Judging from what we know of Mr. L's present position, we are inclined to the opinion that he will decline the appointment." Illinois Journal, 26 September 1849.]
