The Lincoln Monument.
A NUMBHB of gentlemen Lave been far several
years past quietly collecting a sum for the
purpose of erecting a monument In oar city to
the memory of the late President Abraham
Lincoln. For some time little has been heard
of the attempt, but the directors of the enter
prise bare not been asleep. We understand
that recently a meeting was held, and it was
determined to receive proposals for the design
and eixe of the statue. The reputation of
those who have the enterprise in hand for oor
reot taste makes it certain that the choice of
the figure will be all that could be desired.
But the seleotion of the site on which it shall
stand is one in which all the publio cannot but
take a deep interest. There are two positions
talked of. The one is in the centre
of Washington Square. This site certainly
has its advantages. It will greatly add to the
popularity and attractions of that now almost
deserted Square. It will afford a fine view
from all sides. The space around is elear, and
it would, without doubt, look extremely well
both as an ornament and an object of general
interest to that locality. But the other posi
tion we think outnumbers in advantage
Washington Square. We refer to the centre
of Broad street, somewhere between Chesnut
and Market streets. There can be no doubt
but the true policy of our oity is to do all in
its power to make Broad street peculiarly the
street of the city, if not of the country. Natu
rally we have much to aid us in such an
enterprise. The street itself is broad,
and most excellently situated. It
requires now but some judicious
additions to make it pre-eminently the Ameri
can Boulevard. One of the additions would un
doubtedly be furnished in the location of the
monument in the middle of the street, and at
the same time in the middle of the city. Such
a seleotion is extremely common abroad. Paris
and London both of them have such statues
ereoted directly in the middle of the highway,
where all the world can see them. They give
effect to the street at present either from
above or below, and at the same time display
with singular excellence the science of sculp
turing. If the monument was to be placed in
the square, it would not be seen by many of
the visitors to our city. It should be out of
the ordinary tour of travel. But iu Broad
street very eye would enjoy its propor
tions. In whatever light we view it, we think
that Broad and Chesnut, or opposite Penn
Squares, is the best site. We merely throw
out the suggestion to the committee, feeling
sure that they will both seleot the best ariistio
production, and the best position in which to
place an enduriDg monument to the memory
of the man whom all acknowledge a pure
patriot and Union martyr.
General Winfield S. Hancock.
Tub large vote received by General Hancock in
the Demooratio Convention on Wednesday
proves that the industrious efforts of his ad
vocates and friends had not been fruitless.
For some time past they have been making
active exertions in his favor, and among other
agencies employed, a pamphlet was exten
sively circulated in all quarters likely to exert
an influence over the National Convention,
which purported to be a biographical sketch
of General Hancock's life and publio
services, aid which set forth la glowing
terms the record of his valorous achievements
during the war, , and introduced quotations
from his orders and letters while he was sta
tioned at New Orleans, In command of the
Fifth Military Diatriot, to prove that he ad Is
the talents of an accomplished oivilian to his
bravery 3 a soldier. The vote on the
eighteenth ballot shows that he completely
won the hearts of the Southern Democracy by
his controversy with General Grant in regard
to the exeoution of the Reconstruc
tion laws, for he was sustained on that
ballot by the unanimous vote of Alabama, Ar
kansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Missis
sippi, North Carolina, fcouth Carolina, Texas,
and Virginia, which up to a recent period con
stituted the ten unreconstructed States. He
also received one vote from Delaware, four
and a half votes from Kentucky, six and a
half votes from Maryland, and seven votes
from Missouri, thus nearly sweeping the en
tire tier of old slaveholding States, with the
exception of Tennessee, which, "solitary and
alone," adhered to the desperate fortunes of
The Pleasures of the Park.
Every day of the present oppressive weather
proves the great wisdom of any large city
inventing, lavishing its money on publio im
provements which are of a kind to give plea
sure to the people. We are recalled to the
truth of the real economy of such expenditures
by the throngs which daily crowd the Fair
mount Park and enjoy ita delightful breezes
and ever pleasant shades. There cannot be
found to-day a man in our city who does not
recommend the liberality which induced the
city to purchase the site and prepare it for a
publio pleasure ground. There every class
of the people revel iu innocent and healthy
pleasure. The wealthy from their carriages
enjoy its pleasant paths. The pedestrian
from the ' elegantly laid out walk secures
an equal amount of gratification, the chil
dren enjoying their games on the grass,
And their eeDiors the walks and seats. The
aliiUoa of a Sue band of muslo is one whkh
the people can highly appreciate. It has been
always considered good polioy by the various
monarchs of Europe, to expend large sums of
money in giving pleasure to the people. In
many, we may say in all, of the publio
Parks, at Government expense, first-class
bands are furnished and everything done to
give popular pleasure. Shall we, then, a
government of the people, by the people and
for the people, not be as liberal as the con
tracted policy of European Kings f Every oent
thus spent is a dime well invested, and which
will yield an abundant interest in contributing
Wiiii.b lately engaged in looking over the
pages of some French illustrated papers, our
attention was arrested by a series of views of
the great Pacifio Railroad, a road about
passing through a country of which soaroe a
path for man was known up to within a very
few years. Our thoughts reverted to the tiuwa
when not only the seotion of country about to
be traversed by the great iron road, but the
entire continent was occupied by numerous
races, some of which have entirely disap
peared, others remaining only in fragments,
while whole tribes have been exterminated.
There are problems connected with the early
history of this country which ethnographers,
naturalists, and arcb.Tologists have attempted
in vain to solve. One of the most interesting,
we think, is the resemblance between some of
the practices of Central America and some
parts of the East, which engaged the attention
of the great Humboldt when he visited this
ccuntry. Since then the researches of Mu3srs.
Stevens, Catherwood, Squire, and others have
shown some of the resemblances to have been
moBt remarkable. A late ingenious writer,
in going over M. de Waldeck's Illustrated
Monuments of Ancient Mwxico, has pointed
out the great likeness existing between the
great temple of Palenqn and the equally
great temple of Buro-Budo in the province of
Kedii, in the Island of Java, in such a manner
as to place beyond all reasonable debate the
common purpose and origin of both. We
cannot enter into the details as rec mnted by
this writer, but will give some of the
most striking. Both are elevated on a series
of graduated platforms or terraces, and are
reached by successive flights of steps faoing
the cardinal points; the chambers of both are
disproportionately small, with no apertures
excepting the doorways for the admission of
air and light; their curved ceilings, formed of
stones overlapping each other triangular
wise, and constituting what is known as the
Cyclopean arch, are precisely alike; the walls
of both are adorned with my tho-hieroglyphi-cal
tablets, in which the head of the Asiatio
elephant is conspicuous, the meaning of whioh
has yet to be deciphered; in the sanctuaries of
both B'huda is represented in colossal diguity
seated oross-legged upon a couch or throne,
sustained by crouching leopards, and be
nignly receiving an offering of fruit and
flowers from a priestess who is kneeling be
Among other matters of interest the won
derful decrease of the population north of the
confines of ancient Mexico is not the least.
Two centuries ago the population amounted
te seventeen millions of souls. It is now less
than two millions. Alcoholic liquors, epi
demical diseases, and forced emigration have
aggravated this frightful mortality.
From the appearance of the mounds and
other remains, coupled with the legendary
history related by the Indians, according to
these traditions, an entire nation, both phy
sically and morally distinguished from the
redskins; a race of white men who had been
settled in the country from time immemorial,
were unexpectedly assailed and overwhelmed
by their enemies. The manifest incompletion
of several of the monuments in the valley of
the Ohio, betokens a sudden cessation of labor
on the part of their constructors, and this
would seem to confirm the terrible reality of
the Indian legends. Still, they are conjectures.
All that patient investigation can do is being
done, and we must patiently await future dis
closures, if any will be forthcoming, which
may be of a nature to change or add to the
infoimation which we already possess. Of the
material progress of this country, or rather
what that will be on the completion of this
great chain between the Atlantio and Pacilio
Oceans, our readers need not be told.
Lht the people understand the sentiments
of the Democracy. At a large meeting
of representative men in New York, a
Colonel Yerger, of Memphis, uttered the fol
lowing epeecb, which needs no comment from
"TDat General Grunt was nowBtopplngboldly
toward a throne, aud would dint; his purple

Cmigrea of the United Htates. (Kuriously.) I

people of the North."
It would be well for the indignant orators
who are so addicted to "spitting" an opposi
tion sentiment, to remember the rebuff given
by Douglas Jerrold. At one of the London
Clubs an excitable Tory was discussing politics
with an equally excitable Liberal. "I detest
your principles," says Liberal. "Your doo
trines are treasonable," says Tory, "and spit
upon Oliver Cromwell." "And I epit on
Charles I." "Waiter," exclaimed Jerrold,
ringing; "waiter, spittoons for two." The
story is old, but may be useful during the

For .President, Horatio Seymour.
Or the 22d ballot, the National Urmooratio
Convention unanimously nominated Horatio
Seymour, of New York, as the candidate for
the Presidency. By so doing, in case Mr
Seymour accepts, the most absurd contradic
tion ever presented by any political party is
presented by the Demooracy. They nominate
their own presiding officer a lack of taste
most astonishing. They nominate a man who
has again and again declined. But the old
story of Csnsar refusing the crown is made
modern. History repeats itself. They nominate
a man who has expressed views on the most
vital issue that of finance whioh are dia
metr!cally opposed to those of the platform.
They must, indeed, have come upon days of
great "publio calamity," as Vallandigbam
said, wLen they must stultify themselves by
inconsistencies bo gross as to be a positive
insult to the intelligence of the Amerioan peo
p'e. With suoh internal dissensions they oan
hardly carry the States which voted for
MoClellan. They have disgraced as well as
defeated themselves by their reckless disre
gard of all show of principle in nominating a
gold man on a greenback platform.
UP RATIO SEYMOUR.
Sketch of the Democratic Candidate for
. the Preairtaatcy .
Hmatio Seymour, who today reoolvod the
Demooratio nominal ion for the Presidency on
the 22d ballot, Is a native of Onondaga county
N. Y and is still in the prime of life and vUor
of manhood. lie was cducaled to the law, In
Whioh tils acquirements are acknowledged to be
of no mean order. Indeed, he bears the re m'a
tlon of being one of the most scholarly and
polished men who have ever bean In publio life
In th's oountry.
JTGovernoY Seymour has long been prominent
as a politician. The first office held by him was
that of Mayor of Uilca, and be wis a member
of the Legislature from 112 to 1315 Inclusive
and was speaker of the Assembly fjr the last
year of his term. With these exceptions, how
ever, we bdlleve that be has never held any
other publio position except that of Governor
of the Bute of New York:. Ho first ran Tor

I emoorallc oandldate for L'oiUen.i nt-Governor-Alihoi
g i Mr. thuicuwas elected by a small
majority, Seymour's vo'e fell off, and Washing
ton Hunt, the Whig n vnlno-, was eltoted by a
majority of 2U2 votes. In ls.-,2 he was again a
candl with Mr. CI urj.i. and this time both wen
eleoted, Seymour's vote not belugas grdatai
Oiuich's, however, by about 20,000. In
18M, when Seymour aspired for tli
third time to QuberuatorUl honors, he was de
feited by dissensions iu his own party, the
memorable colII ct between the Hards and
Softs being then at its height, and tbe Whig
oandldate receiving 30!) more votes than Sey
mour. Ia 1SG2 he again became a candidate
and ws a second time elected, on the basis of
the popu'ar dissatisfaction with the manner in
whioh the war was I hen being conduoted, bis
majority over General Wadsworth being 10,752
in a total vote of CU2.5 18.
In 1801 h j beoame a candidate for the fifth,
time anl sustained bis third defeat, Governor
Fenton receiving a miijorlty ofi2)3 in a tola1
vote of 730.821.
Governor Seymour presided over the delibe
rations of tbe Chicago Democratic Convention
of 18J1, and was similarly honored by the pre -sent
Convention last Saturday. His iirme has
been associattd with the office of President for
the last eight yer.

Old Mr. Punk was fisiDg Lis gun, witL a
view to Laving it make some patriotic demon
strations of noise. He pointed the weapon to
wards himself, and Mrs. Punk somehow ot
other got the idea that it might go off and hit
him. So she pleasantly remarked in her
blandest tones: "There now, you old fool, it
you are going to shoot yourself, just make a
clean shoot of it, and don't mangle yourself
for me to he bothered with taking care of."
The unfortunate Punk's gun didn't happen
to go off, and he didn't get shot, and Mrs.
Funk didn't have the trouble, of nursing his
mangled remains, but he still lives, to buy
