MONUMLNTH FOB BOTH . LEE AND
hr. Hunter McGuire : The beit site.
in my opinion, for the proposed Lee
monument is Marshall Bark (vulgarly
called Libby Hill). Thc monument
should be a tall shaft like tbe Column
Vendome, with the military figure of
Lee on tbe top. From Manchester, and
from any point on Msm street of this
city from Fifth to Twenty-fifth street,
this monument could be 6een. lt would
be the br.st thing observed by visit>r<
coming up tbe James, or by tbe rail?
roads coming into the city from Peters?
burg. Dssri-UB, West Point, and New

A NAT i kai. BA
Mr. Gilbert ll. Frith ! In my opiniin
the bast site for the proposed monument
tn i-eneral lee is Libby Hill. or. as I
believe it is now called, .Marshall Park.
I think that the first desideratum for a
great public monument is a grand natu?
ral site, provided such is available
within convenient distance. Libby Hill
is a grand natural site, and an imposing
monument erected on it would be in
fall view from the principal thorough?
fare of Richmond, snd would al->o be
mn from more ppints in the vicinity
aid ia Bpproacbiag the city than any
other spot. A noble outlook sub ?
thc BBBiar.it of Libby Hill cominan ll
would enhance thc dignity of the work.

In reply to your latter received a fen
day a ago asking my opinion as to a
sits for the contemplated Lee monu?
ment, I ri gret to Bay that I think it
pnmature to decide on that question st
Tha city has numerous good sites,
such ss Libby Hill, Gamble's Hill,
Monroe Psrk, tbs Reservoir Park, Ac,
any one of which will be gladly given
by the city when we are prepared lo
erect the monument.

It is, I think, therefore, prema?
ture to decide on a site.

thought that ihe verdict of posterity
with regard to General Lee will be that
ol Professor Long in his note to his
translation of ?** The Thoughts of Mar?
cus Aurelius"?regarding Kobert E.

armies, again-t the powerful invader,
and retired from an unequal contest de?
feated but not dishonored : the noble

I do not think that victory crowning
the warner on a prancing horse repre?
sents tither the verdict of posterity or
what would have been the wish of Gen?
eral Robert E. Lee as to his monument.
1 should prefer seeing his command
gurs on a column like that of Na

mg fr., rn Li!.by Hill his long lines which
he to lorg and so ably defended. Saab
i column would be seen by every one,
aid would also ba handed down to pos
terity nilbnnt fear of injury.
If, hoBccr, an equestrian statue bo
determined on. with numerous allegori?
cal figures, then it must be placed in
the we-tern portion of the city : for we
must lemembcr that a monument is a
t ol thc present to tbe future in mern

ai.d we should aspect for Richmond a
future as long as the past of most Bn*

will protect itself, but an elaborate

designs should be always under the
protection of tbe public, unless we hive
soldiers stationed to guard them, as in

to guard a soldier's monument.

H asiiinotox. March 27.?Mr.
Wi-e delighted the Virginia Democratic
Association by his plain talk before
them last night ia regard to the policy
of keeping Republicans in office under
a I'emoi rstic Administration. Ha ap?
proached the aubject very tenderly at
first, but warmed up as he proceeded.
He 'aid : ? I can't say that I am ex
sctly pleased with the way things are
gr'rp on. I am a Kemocrat. and when
I BgM and win a victory I want the
Bratts of it. I do not believe a Demo?
cratic Administration can be run by
Republicans or Mugwump". I don't
think we have a goori and true Ja?s>
Benian Administration. I sm a Dem >
crat through and through, and I
don't believe in this sentimen?
tal nonsense about civil-service
reform. I don't want a Demo?
crat to run the Administration of my
psrty who don't want Democratic su?
bordinates under him." Checking him?
self a moment in the midst of his im?
passioned delivery, he said : '? That is
ny oj inion, and I am afraid I have sal 1
t"> much now: but ! believe in bald
talk, for I think we have lost a great
deal by being a little too mealy?
mouthed." ? Then he drifted away from
the civil-fervice question, but presently
recurred to it with increased earnest?
ness. " When you go to the depart?
ments to get a bite from the public rib
they say the depart Dents arc full. Full
of what? Republicans. These are the
wrorgs, these sre the inequalities,
that exist under this damnable civil
This sentiment and the intense ear?
nestness of the denunciation BIBBSed
the baja to a high pitch, and they ap?
plauded enthusiastically. Scarcely ta?
king time to mop his brow. Wise ex?
claimed : " Let BJ have what belongs
to us. Let the people who won the
victory have the fruits of it. I shall
tot recognize the existence of a Demo?
cratic government until we have more
radical changes than we have yet had."
Much more in thc same line of
thought was said, but this much will
-how the drift of the remarks of the
representative of the Richmond district.
lt may be added that he Bgpwised the
real sentiments cf tao thirds of the
members of Congress of both parties,
almost any ol them will tell you. but
"not for publication."
