ASSASSINATION OF PRESIDENT LINCOLN.

Resolutions passed at a public meeting convened by the mayor of Warrington, in pursuance of a numerously signed requisition, and held at the Public Hall, in Warrington, Lancashire, on the 2d May, 1865.

That we, the inhabitants of Warrington, view the atrocious assassination of his Excellency Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States, and the attack on the life of the honorable William Henry Seward, Secretary of State, with feelings of indignation and sincere sorrow. We feel assured that through-out the civilized world there can be but the one sentiment of horror at so revolting a crime; and, in common with the rest of our fellow-countrymen, we desire to express our deep sympathy with the people of the United States under this great national calamity.

That this meeting wishes to express its heartfelt condolence with the widow and family of the late President, and trusts that they may be sustained by a merciful Providence under their sad and mournful bereavement.

That our best thanks be given to the mayor for convening this meeting, and that he be requested to send copies of both resolutions to Mr. Adams, the American minister in London.

PETER SMITH,
Mayor
