4, LOCAL SELF-GOVERNMENT
with impartial suffrage, will guard tho
rights of all citizens more securely than
any centralized power. The people nnd
the public welfare require tho SUPRE

with public order, for the statu self-gov

tional limitations of power.
"THl'K AS ItllAt'llI.VU."
6. The civil service of the government
has become a mere instrument of partisan
tyranny and personal ambition, and an
object of selfish greed. It is u tcatidal

breeds a demoralization dangerous to the
perpetuity of republican government.

Wnrd II. Lamon, formerly United
States marshal for thu District of Ooliltnliin,
and n son-in-law of Judge Stephen T.
Logan, an eminent lawyer of Springfield,
Ills., ha presented tho public with a
ponderous volumo of tlvo hundred and
tlfty pages, entitled " The Life of Abraham
Jjlncoin, irom ins isirtii to tils inaugura
tion of President." This book will be
very generally read, acknowledged to bo u
vnluablo contribution to our knowledge of
an eminent man, und at tho some time
cordially condemueJ bya large proportion
of intelligent people "who are fortunato
or unfortunate enough to posse's a keen
sense of the proprictict Truth Is a good
tbing, but it is possible to get too much of
it, and tlierc ure some circumstances
whero "Ignorance is bliss," und it is the
Mipremcst folly to bo wise. Mr. Lamon,
howovor, evidently does not comprehend
this fact, and has acted on the principle
that nothing should be suppressed which
could throw illi atom of light or shade on
thu subject which be discusses. A warm
personal menu or .Mr. Lincoln, pound to
lum by ties olgratliuue us well as of poli
tics, and anxious apparently to make as
flue a specimen of the demi-god as the
material will permit, he has yet given us
as ruthless and unsavory pott mortem
examination as can be found in the wholo
raniro of biocranhical literature. Were it
possible for the illustrious dead to escape
from the ponderous toiiio al uuk uiul-c,
and revisit for a brief season, tho sceno of
his toils, trials, nnd triumphs, we think
tho first business transacted during tho in
tervals ol resurrection would be u found
kicking administered to tho gentleman
who has written his life.
Tho provocation for this kicking com
indices in tho earliest pages of thu book,
and, with a few insignificant exceptions,
continues throuchout tho whole work.
Wo are told, what might just as wollhavo
remained untold, that "there exists no
evidence of tho marriage of Thomas Lin
coln and Nancy Hanks (the parents of tho
president,) but that of mutual acknowl
edgment and cohabitation ;" that while
Thomas Lincoln's marriagu is properly
recorded and verified by the minister's li
cense, no fragment of documentary proof
can be discovered to estubiisii tlio validity
of the first. Furthermore, it is stated that
Mr. Lincoln seldom or never alluded to
his mother; seemed to havo an lnstinctivo
dread of reviving her memory in nny
way, und allowed tier grave to remain in
tho" condition it now covered with
weeds and briars, nnd consigned to utter
and contemptuous neglect. Yet he
tenderly loved his step-mother, paid
her the highest respect, and was al
wnys rcudy to mako her the theme of en
thusiastic pruise. In short, Mr. Lamon's
narrutivo does much to confirm, and noth
ing to remove, the reports which havo
been in circulation in Kentucky and else
where for many years past. Judicious
silence would have been highly appropri
ate in such a delicate matter a this.
Hut v!j-n love affairs are brought under
discussion, our biographer becomes oven
more garrulous and indiscreet. There is
no doubt that the tlrat and the only real
love winch .Mr. Lincoln ever cherished
was for Ann Rutledge, a modest, attractive
girl of West Salem, whoso strange, sad
story was origluully r.lrculuted in William
II. Herudoii's somewhat notorious leeturo.
When poor Ann, tired of wiiltini? for Mr.
MeNainiir, her first love, and hardly will
ing to marry her second, Lincoln snlvcd
tho embarrassing dilllciiHy by going
beneath the daisies, ths second lover
actually took leave of hl senses, and had
to oo carried away to a cabin ill tho
woods in order to recover his mental equi
Ubrium. Yet within a year after tin event
which plunged him into a profound grief
that was never wholly obliterated,' lio
paid his addresses to Mm Owens, ami up
patently was exceedingly anxious to
marry her. The lady rejected him
promptly, and lie then writes a letter to
Mrs. o. H. Hrowning, of Quiney. Illinois,
caiicaturiug his inamorata in the uiou
outrageous manner, and expressed hi,
views of the intended alliance in terms
seldom employed by gentlemen. Not
long after Mis Owens hud dispensed
with his services, Mr. Lincoln again
passed under cupid s yoke and laid his
slightly- battered heart at tho feet of Miss
Mary Todd. 'Lamon' tu tlwii'iinnnrv not
withstanding, lils nll'ection for the person
who was destined to bu hit future wife an.

and denied tho freedom of the will. Ho
told mo 4 thousand limes that bo did not

the Hi bin was not God's revelation ; and

nnd unselfishness. Honest ho wn, proba

bo; but n more ambitious, more cunning,

trust his biographer.- An anli-sluvory
man from conviction, ho did not daro
avow his principles until popular opinion
began to set in that direction, and then
went forward cautiously nnd anxiously,
fearing all tho while lest ho should lose
his chances for advancement. Not a par
ticlo of thn martyr was thero In his com
position ; ho loved Rome much, but
CVsar lnflnitoly moro. "Ho did nothing,"
says 'Lamon,' out of more gratitude, and
forgot the devotion of his warmest parti
sans as soon as the occasion for their ser
vices had passed. What they did for him
was quietly appropriated as tho reward of
superior merit, calling for no return in
kind. He novor wasted power to advance
a friend." Not n very flattering picture
this, of "tho second Washington," vet its
truth is confirmed by a multitude o"f wit
nesses. Thn moral of Mr. Lamon's book may
ho summed up In tho familiar proverb"
No man is a hero to his valet; no woman
an angel to her maid." Whatever dignity
nnd grandeur there may have been
clinging to Lincoln' garments, is
orTectunlly removed in theso curious
chapters; the idol is no longer either
bronze or marble, but rathor common clay,
nnd in some places badly smirched. The
author of tho emancipation proclamation
has contributed much to tho history of tho
nation, and secured for himself a liberal
sharo of Immortality ; but in tlioso graces
which adorn manhood, in those instincts
which constitute truo nobility of character,
in tlioso qualities which challenge the
admiration and deserve tho imitation of
mankind, he was, for the most part,
miserably deficient. How deficient, wo
should not haAO known had not Mr.
Waiiii H. Lamon written his life.

The biogrophy deuls a freely with Mr.

journnl in tho city discusses tlio manifesto
from Schurz, Bryant and Cox, coming to
divorso conclusions in relation thereto.
Tlio 'Post' of this evening, "liich should
know something of the subject, since Mr.
Bryant win ono of tho signers of tho call,
makes tho following editorial remarks:
"The 'Tribune' Is aghast nt llnding out
that there really were men who not only
did not go to Cincinnati on false pretences,
but they say so; that when they said re
form and purity, they meant reform and
purity; that thoy really did not
mean to cheat unybody, that they
have not tho slightest intention
at quietly sitting down, content
ed to bo chcuted. Tho Cincinnati conven
tion, so far as u great minority of ito mem
bers was concerned, was for a lofty
and noblo purpose. In tho hands of
a small majority, who gathered thoro
with qui to other motives, it turned
out uu impudent imposition a mon
strous fraud. Tho question is, what
shull bo done about it V If any ono really
thinks thu Cincinnati Convention did u
wise thing und answered its legitimate
purpose, suchlpersons have nothing to do
but support its candidates. It is tlioso
who hold that tho convention did not do
Its legitimate work who will havo nothing
to do with tho men it nominated, und who
want to come together lor further consid
eration. What the gentlemen who
como togotlior next week may say or do,
neituor inoy nor wo, nor nny oyuy else cun

may oo, inoy win coriaimy not uo mat,
Thoy huvo been made fools of onco by

f making fools of themselves in precisely
the sumo way. Tho meeting is called with
purpose; whereas, it would bo called
without one, if those who signed tho cull
could possibly reconcile thomselves to
what has beon dono at Cincinnati.

BEAUTV OF WOMEN.
A New York contemporary draws a
purallel between American and Knglih
women, and by a very easy lino of argu
ment makes out the former to bo by tar
the moro beautiful. Of course we would
favor thu Yankee women, but the standard
of female beauty varies so with countries
and climates that each nationality con
ceives beauty according to its own fashion.
ino Alricaus, ot course, uguru beauty as
black or bronze, with swollon lips, and to
make tho lower Up more beautiful some
tribes render it more pendulous by attach-
ng heavy jewels or welkins to it tiirouuh
urtiflciul holes. In l'eruthe longest ears
are considered the handsomest, nnd u
great mark of beauty in thu females.
Somo pcoplo stain thoir teeth black and
somo red, und in Busquo tho women do
not consider tliemsolvcs fit for brides until
they huvo shaved thoir heads close to the
The Mexican women rejoico in low fore
heads and very thick heads of hair, the
blacker the better, and tho coarser it is
the higher the appreciation, while the
It liana venerate red, golden, and light
huir. Tho Spaniards fancy light, slender
figures in thoir women; tho Italians on
tho contrary, aro fond of full developments
of limb and figure. The Orientals
and Westerns aro also at complete
antipodes as to thu manner in which
thoy interpret beauty und whut ro
tates to it. The Kustorn women use yel
low cosmetics, while the French and 'Kn
