Mr. Lincoln, in his Message of December last, said little about the foreign relations of the United States. In general phraseology, he attributed to European Governments unworthy motives in the policy which he ascribed to them, but as to their precise relations to us, and what we had said or done to them, he was, if not silent, darkly oracular.
This silence of the Chief Magistrate on Foreign affairs was not thoughtless. It would be unjust to him to suppose it was.
