Under the slimulautof agreát excitement tliey haye arisen to the full stature of patriotic manhood. All the dividmg lines of party and faction have disappeared wholly. Only tender sympathy fot the stricken president and Ijurn ing indignation at the great erinie have found a lodgment in the popular breast. The people, though exeited and profnund ly sorrowful, maintained their sclfcontrol and nL ver lost tbeir head. No uxcesses were iudulgcd in or thought of. There was calmness and clearness of visión everywhere. A tender syuipalhy fur the suifering victiin, ami afirm, patriotic de votion to country, prevailed everywhere. The president iniglit die, hut the nation would live. The insane act of a madinun inight flll our hearts with grief, bul was powerloss to affect the national lile, progress, or welfare.
