March 9, 1861


. . . Mr. President Lincoln was, doubtless, inaugurated last Monday, and strong anxiety is felt for news as to the course he will adopt in regard to the South. Mr. Jefferson Davis, the President of the Southern Confederation, has taken office, and has lost no time in proclaiming that there must be no idea of a reunion, and that the sword must be resorted to should there be any attempt to reimpose the Federal yoke. This language is, doubtless, explicit enough. In what way Mr. Lincoln intends to carry out his idea of avoiding invasion and coercion, and yet of seizing back any Federal property on which the Secessionists have laid hands, is a problem for whose solution we shall wait with impatience.
