THE FLIGHT OF ABRAHAM.

(As reported by a Modern Daily Paper.)

(1.) THE ALARM.

"On Thursday night, after he had retired, Mr. LINCOLN was aroused, and informed that a stranger desired to see him on a matter of life and death. * * * A conversation elicited the fact that an organized body of men had determined that Mr. LINCOLN should never leave the City of Baltimore alive. * * * Statesmen laid the plan, Bankers indorsed it, and Adventurers were to carry it into effect "

(2.) THE COUNCIL.

"Mr. LINCOLN did not want to yield, and his friends cried with indignation. But they insisted, and he left."

(3.) THE SPECIAL TRAIN.

" He wore a Scotch plaid Cap and a very long Military Cloak, so that he was entirely unrecognizable."

(4.) THE OLD COMPLAINT.

" Mr. LINCOLN, accompanied byMr. SEWARD, paid his respects to President BUCHANAN, spending a few minutes in general conversation."

Sent by express everywhere. It will save in washing, in bringing up one child, more than its cost, and MUCH of THE TIME and attention of mother and nurse. It gives the child entire freedom of action for body and limbs, insures a healthy action of the stomach and bowels, promotes and strengthens the natural motion and development of the system, preserving it from injury or the possibility of danger.

It is compact, strong, and durable, and to those having the care of infants it is indispensable. N. B.—" The exercise obtained by our nursery children in one of your baby-tenders very much aids in their proper physical development, and enables us to dispense with the services of one astant nurse "[Matron of the Home for the Friendless.   a

SETH JONES ; or, The Captives of the Frontier. BILL BIDDON, TRAPPER ; or, Life in the Far Northwest.

THE FRONTIER ANGEL : A Romance of Kentucky Rangers' Life.
