Speech ot Mr. .Lincoln at _Colambus. The President " elect arrived at Columbus , Ohio, yesterday afternoon, and addressed the members of the Legislature in a short speech, in which he forcibly defended his course in refusing to commit himself positively in regard to his policy before he was enabled, by a survey of the whole field , to fully decide upon his future action. When he stated that nobody is suffering anything in consequence of the present agitation, his mind evidently reverted rather to the flourishing and prosperous agricultural region in which he has long resided, and to the fertile districts through which he has recently passed, than to the commercial and manufacturing centres, where business derangements are most keenly felt, where thousands of operatives are thrown out of employment, and where bankruptcy stares in the face many of the most enterprising and useful citizens of our country.

The Tariff. The new tariff bill was yesterday called up for consideration in the United States Senate, and in view of the terribly disordered condition of our national finances, and the imperative necessity of the speedy adoption of efficient measures to replenish the Treasury and to prevent the absolute destruction of the credit of the Government, it seems scarcely possible to doubt that some new measure will be adopted before the close of the present session of Congress.
