It Was -hisfifty-second birth day annlversap . - Early the next day the train bearing the President elect and his partyleft Cincinnati. The localnews papers  covered his move ments. I , Nowhere was theremen tionof any evidence of a plot, against Lincoln. i From Cincinnati the train went to Columbus, Ohio, where Lincoln . addressed the state legislature. En route 11 had stopped at Mil- -ford, Mlamlville,Morrow,THEN ON THDRSDAT, February 28,1861, the ChicagoTribune carried a story of the reported at tempt on Lincoln slife at Cincinnati. The story onpageone under, the head: Another PlotUn folded. ã /  Ourreaders will remem- I>er, the storybegan:  that when Mr. Lincoln waspass ing throughIndiana, an at tempt to throw histrain off thetrack wasdiscovered just In time to preventcon sequences fatal \ to the the party.  We printed an account of the affair at the time; but nobody seemed to be lieve that therewas. any special desire to put the Presidenttodeath, in the nefarious act which we re lated. But that was notthe only effortmade to getrid ofthe people s^man Ina summary way. We now have Inaddition tothe Baltimore, conspiracy,- of which Gen.Scott, Mr. se-   ward and Mrs. Washbume were Infonned, the follow ingwhich comes to usinthe Syracuse Journalof Saturday: the accountcon tinued.,lb then quoted the Journalstory as follows:  We have beenInformed bygentlemenconnectedwith the party of Mr. Lin coln since he lefthomefor Washington, that there wereseveral attempts to take his life during the  Theone which threat ened the most seriouscon sequencestookplace on the Presidential train leav ing r Cincinnati, when a grenade of the most de structive character was dis covered in the car occupied by Mr.Lincoln, his family > and personal friends, the Journal storyrecounted. .  It (the   ^enade) was -foundinasmall carp^ bag, which had beendeposited In a seat of the car bysome imknown person. Atten tionwas drawn toItfrom thefact that no baggage wasallowed inthe cars.  On examlnatloHi the gre nade concealed in the car? petbagwasdiscoveredto beignited, and so arranged that withinfifteen minutes  , it would have exploded with jiiaiforce^^aifllcientjto have ^ ^emOli:^eCrTfie ^cai^ and  destroyed the lives of all persons in it.Ofcourse, the  infernalmachine was- speedlly removed and properly disposedof. ^Continuing its story the Chicago Tribune said:  Couple these thingswith the threatening and admon itory letters, hundredsof which Mr. Lincoln has,, re ceived since November, and . allofwhichforetold an at tempt uponhis life, andno sane mancan doubt that a deliberate plot has been formed to effect his assas sination, and that the mur dererswere foiled by the hurriedjourney fromHar- rlsburgmadeby General Scott s advice.^ ã: U : INHIS BOOK:  Lincoln s Journey toGreatness, Vic tor Searcher wrote that It appeared a pilotengine had preceded the PresIdMit s Special when it left Cin cinnati becauseofrumors. One such rumor, Searcher wrote, was that a grenade had beenfoundaboard thetrain asIt was aboutto leave Cincinnati. A Colonel Lamon had attemptedto settle such stories with the statement that no  mur derous doings had been heard of except in, the newspapers. There may havebeen others, but theseappearto be the onlyreferences to an assassination attempt at CincinnatL Butthe questionpersists: Was thereanattempt upon Lincoln s life at Cin cinnati?  IN A R RE IjMTERVIEW, M Y LIN.
