Aug. 4, 1858.

Mr. Lincoln has accepted the proposition of Mr. Douglas to debate with him at the following points.

Ottawa, La Salle Co., Aug. 21.
Freeport, Stephenson Co., Aug. 27.
Jonesboro, Union Co., Sept. 15.
Charleston, Coles Co., Sept. 18.
Galesburg, Knox Co., Oct. 7.
Quincy, Adams Co., Oct. 13.
Alton, Madison Co., Oct. 15.

We have only to express our regret that West Urbana could not have made one of the points, so that our citizens could have had the pleasure of listening to the great oratorical tournament between "Long Abe" and the "Little Giant."

There will be some rare speaking done or we are much mistaken.
