After order had been restored he spoke as fol lows: president Lincoln's speech. Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth upon this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the propos;tion that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing the question whether this nation or any nation so conceived, so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on the great battle-field battle-field battle-field cf that war. We are met to dedicate it, on a portion of the field set apart as the final resting place of those Lwbo gave their Bvee for the nation's Mfe; bot jtaeft-. jtaeft-. jtaeft-. ton must live, and it is altogether fitting and proper uiat we 6 no uid do tnis. In a larger sense we cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow this ground in reality. The number of men, living and dead, who struggled here have consecrated it far above our poor attempts to add to its consecration. The world will little know and nothing remember of what we see here, but we cannot forget what these brave men did here. We owe thl3 offering to our dead. We imbibe increased increased devotion to that cause lor which they here gave the last full measure of devotion; we hcie might resolve that they shall not have died in vain; that the nation shall, under God, have a new birth of freedom, and that the Government of the people, lor the people, and for all people, shall not perish from earth. Mr. EiNcOLjy sat down amid a scene cf wild and lengthened excitement. The Dismissal. Cheers were proposed and heartily given for the President and the Governors ot the several States.
