Will be Published August 5th:
POETS AND POETRY
With Biographical and Critical Notices.
WM. T. COGGESHALL
OHIO STATE LIBRARIAN, EDITOR.
THIS volume, which will be printed from new type, on heavy calendered paper, has been in course of preparation for several years, and is the first of a series designed to afford a complete survey of the Literature of the Great West.
"The Poets and Poetry" will not only contain the gems of poetry produced in the West, but it will fairly represent the respectable poetical literature of Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Missouri, Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota and Kansas.
The biographical notices of leading poets are elaborate, and are from the pens of well-known writers. The book will, therefore, present important materials for a literary history of the Western States.
More than one hundred and fifty poets are represented.
The publishers feel confident that a work of so much intrinsic importance, and relative interest, cannot fail to receive general attention. Every Western man of intelligence desires some such compendium of Western Poetry; and the book should be in all the public libraries of the vast region from which its materials have been drawn.
It will contain about 700 royal octavo pages, handsomely bound in half Roan. Price $3.25.
Agents Wanted in every County in the "Great West." Applications for agencies should be made immediately. Address

Edited by WM. T. COGGESHALL, Ohio
In response to a request of the Republican State Central Committee, the Board of Equalization, and Republican State Officers of Ohio, requesting for publication copies of the Speeches made in the Illinois Campaign of 1858, Mr. Lincoln made the following reply:
SPRINGFIELD, ILLS., Dec. 19, 1859. Messrs. GEO. M. PARSONS, and others, Central Executive Committee, etc.: Gentlemen-Your letter of the 7th inst., accompanied by a similar one from the Governor elect, the Republican State officers, and the Republican members of the State Board of Equalization of Ohio, both requesting of me, for publication in permanent form, copies of the political debates between Senator Douglas and myself last year, has been received. With my grateful acknowledgments to both you and them for the very flattering terms in which the request is communicated, I transmit you the copies. The copies I send you are as reported and printed, by the respective friends of Senator Douglas and myself, at the time—that is, his by his friends, and mine by mine. It would be an unwarrantable liberty for us to change a word or a letter in his, and the changes I have made in mine, you perceive, are verbal only, and very few in number. I wish the reprint to be precisely as the copies I send, without any comment whatever. Yours, very truly,
HON. ABRAHAM LINCOLN
