Springfield, IL.

Lincoln gives his opinion of "supposed speech of Mr. Dallas to Lord Brougham" which correspondent sent. He cannot agree that slavery is a necessity imposed by Negro race. "That the going many thousand miles, seizing a set of savages, bringing them here, and making slaves of them, is a necessity imposed on us by them, involves a species of logic to which my mind will scarcely assent." He thanks Amory Holbrook of Oregon for his political news, and tells Judge John M. Read of Pennsylvania that J. Henry Brown's miniature is excellent. "To my unpracticed eye, it is without fault."
