SENATOR TRrnRI LL AND XIIS CNKntB& It is altogether discreditable to the Repub lican party of Illinois that there should ex* Ist within itspalea clique of politicians capa ble of revolting to the means which have been, and are still being employed, to defeat the re-election of Senator Trumbull. The office of Senator of the Untied States Is open to the ambition of any man, but there Is a choice of methods by which that ambi tion may be gratified. The opponents of Senator Trumbull have chosen the lowest and vilct-t methods In the catalogue, and have tnjuted themselves fac more than they have injured him. The people arc amazed at the folly of these malcontents. With them the peat abilities, the unblemished character, the unequalled services ofSenator Trumbull, nil go tor nothing when placed In the balance against the petty Jealousy, the disappoint* incut, the fancied neglects, of which, in their respective eases, the Senator may hare b.-cn at any time, tho unconscious cause. We can aec.umt for a part ot this. We can realize how, in the throng of. applications tor office and aid at the hands of one high in position, some should he found who. In their disappointment, remain unconscious or unmindful of the fact that a Senator, performing official duties of the diameter of (hose devolving upon Judge Trumbull, and performing them In the man* to r he has done, cannot, In addition, secure a lucrative office, and execute one or moro laborious commissions for each Individual constituent. Wo can hnoglnc how certain Major Generals may be Inclined to under* value the services of those who, with not Inferior courage or devotion, and with even superior ability, guarded the Republic at another “front.” We can understand nil this, because it Is In accord with what every day's experience teaches us respecting the narrowness and tbc presiding scllhh tie-s of human nature. But that these gentlemen—many of them old politicians and aspiring men— all oftkero, In every other regard, we be lieve, to be credited with average common sense—can be so blinded as to suppose that the people approve their present attempt; or lha* the people, In ease that attempt Is puccc.'Mul. (of which, we arc thankful, there is no discernible chance), would do less In iheir displeasure than bury out of sight and mind, politically, every man, whoever he might he, who Is peddling lies about Judge Trumbull, and tampering with the honesty of members who have been Instructed In their duty by their constituents—arc lacts which can hardly be explained. We say to these men that they little un- ] derstand the hearing and personal conse- ■ qucnccs of the business in which they are en gaged. They may succeed, by dint of such appliances as corrupt politicians know how to use, In creating for a day such an atmos phere about the town of Springfield as will mukti the eyes of some men there incapable of discerning the sky beyond ; in so stuffing their cars that they shall not hear, until too iatc for themselves, the murmur of indigna tion already rising—and every day more and more, as the ways and methods of this con spiracy are divulged—from the hearts ofhon est men throughout the State- But we tell the men wiio thus suiter their senses to be lulled, that the people, no mailer what the pretext, will not forget it. It was the openly expressed and general understanding, pending the canvass of last full, that Judge Trumbull, If the Republican party had the power to accomplish it, should be relumed to the Senate. There was no one issue connected with that diction more clearly made up, and now, for matter how sup ported or what his claims—especially for any new candidate not known in that can vass-, to come in ana seek to cheat the peo ple's will by the sort of means which have been employed., is, to say the least of It, a most perilous undertaking for them. We do not dwell upon this matter from any fear that tbc intrigue win prevail. We deem the rcnomlnallon and election of Judge Trumbull secure; but we ask that the fair nine of the State—as fair for manliness, and honor, and open dealing ns that of any Com monwealth the sun looks upon—shall not be disgraced by any such low chicanery, or by any such vole as would make the world be* Heve that only by desperate energy and n bare majority can such a public servant us Lyman Trumbull be here retained in the po- Mtion he (lilts. We ask that the vote be such | as shall proclaim the attempt to be what It is, in diet, the work of a factious and dtsaf levied few, without supjmrt or apology In tho opinions of one out of ten of the loyal men of Illinois. I We ask our legislators to remember that the place to be filled is that of a Senator of the United States. We ask them to remem her the services of Lyman Trumbull—the pride (hat stirred their hearts last winter v licii they read that grand series of argu ments whb-n no other man in the Stale, If in the nation, than our Senator could have made. We ask them to remember his un* equalled (Hne>s for the place—and then by acclamation to return him, not ns n reward for services only, but for the honor of Illi nois. TJIH ron.UON ('OIIM’IL AND THIS pi:oi*le. The Common Connell Imre decided that lliov wiil th>* tihk tlie Legislature to permit Hi*- p« «*plf of Chicago todeeldc whelhcrlhey will Imve I lie power to put nn cud to tlic pit monopoly. They Imve rc-ulvcd to appoint a lointiiUhloncr In Inquire Into the probable co-t of conMrucllng gm» works and supplying Hi* i-liy and the public, There is no ohjee- Hon to tliut iminlry—lndeed swell nn Inquiry 1* it m-c-onry one, uml one Hint cannot be dhpeuced with when the time comes for ac- Hon. But the proposition now before the (■(.uiH-il 1m not whether the city shall inaTitjfiicitiro Itsown gos, nor whether II shall ]>mrluire the works oftbuoldgas companies, i.or whether It shall expend one dollar In the matter: hut the question Is, shall the Com* men Council ask the Legislature to vest the c itv with the power,‘to he used hereafter, with the consent of the people, to take such .j,s as may he necessary to protect the pub lic iroin extortion. The Legislature is now in Marion ; one of the six weeks of that acs hion ha* pasr-cd away; the Legislature will not meet again until 1809, and In the mean tithe the contracts with the gas companies will expire, or he so near their close that new* contracts will be unavoidable. IVc can understand well how the pis companies will profit by any | delay that will carry this matter beyond the I adjournment of .the Legislature, but we do not understand how any jnjrson having the interests of the city at heart can, under the pita of investigation, refuse the only avail able means of protection should the occasion for such protection hereafter arise. The ptoposltion now before the Legislature is bimply that the city of Chicago shall have the power, whenever n necessity for its cxer che ur-hc*. to manufacture pas for Us ofrn use. and for the use of the public. The 1 rtesout question Is, will the Com mon council endorse the request that the Legislature grant that power? If that power is To he obtained and be available before tbc vime comes for making new contracts with the ga£ companies, it must be obtained dur* ing the next four weeks. A majority of the Common Connell have voted to postpone anv endorsement of the application for the power, until after the Legislature shall ad juurn; thus leaving the cliy helpless and at the mercy of the gas companies for two vears moie, and for such longer period as these companies can secure control by new j connects. . ... It has been hut a very few years since the r-itv of Chicago was supplied with water car ried in-wooden pipes; this supply ««• fur niched by a private company. Fortunately there were a sufficient number of citizens In ■md out of the Common Connell who had no interest In the monopoly, to petition the Legislature to empower the city to supply the public with water. There were “con sen-alive” men in those days as well as now, - and the effort was then made, as It Is now, to tcrrliv the public from undertaking the basi net because of the enormous expense, par ticularly when there was a company already engaged in the enterprise. But the radicals of that day carried the measure, and the public have saved millions of money by the operation. The water pays for itself, and it is furnished to the public at least one hundred per cent cheaper than if they were at the mercy of the hydraulic company. . The Common Council seem to be afraid of the people. They seem to he atrald that the people, if they get the chance, will break up the cas monopoly just as they did the water monoi>oly. They seem to be afraid that the people will take the supply of gas'from the bands' of those who extort from I $8.50 to $4.00 per thousand feet, aud ] I;nvc it manufactured and supplied I rorsl.sotos2-OOpcrUiongandfcet. Tho Com- 1 mon-Council seem afraid that the people will destroy the monopoly aud break up one or two companies controlled by a score ol persons, wbo are now piling up fortunes at the public expense. iVho does the Council represent ? The people or the gas com panies? Why not direct an Inquiry whctb7 er tbc stockholders of the gas companies are willing that tbc city should supply the public with gas; let tbc committee on de lay report upon this point. Eight years ago tbc gaseompany made a contract with the Common Council for the supply of gas for the street lamps at a fixed price, and for the supply of the public at an other price. The gas company did not hesitate to go to the Legislature and ask and obtain the power to increase these prices. The people of this city now ask the Legisla ture to vest them with the power that here after they may protect the city and tbc pub lic, by manufacturing their own gas, and having It supplied at cost, and without be ing subjected to tbc avarice of any handful of men, corporatcd or not incorporated. The octlou of the Common Council Is bo 1 extraordinary that we think many of the i members must have voted under a misap prehension of the real question before them. Thai question is, will the Council unite with the general public la asking tho Legislature for the power to manufacture gas and supply it to the public at cost—that power to bo exercised hereafter if deemed advisable, and then only In case the people at the polls shall approve it? That is the question now, aud it is one admitting of no delay. Investigation Is advisable, but it applies to the exercise of the power and not to obtaining It. Wu hope tho Council will reconsider their action. They cannot defeat the measure because tho pco. pic can appeal to the Legislature directly, and can obtain tbclr law in spite of the Coun cil. The Common Council nt present stands in the attitude ol resisting the people, and of saying to them, “You shall nut vole down the monopoly, ami you shall not have tho power to supply yourselves with cheapens.” That position la not one which representa llvwofthe people should occupy,and wc hopo they will recede Iron) It at the first opportu nity. A few ycius ago,the ComnionL'omiell of Cincinnati put themaolvo* In tho emno posi tion ; they would not usk the Legislature for nny Mirti power. The people a»kcd for the grout, subject to n popular decision at the polls, mid the Legislature gave them the power. The vote waa taken, und theme, nopoty and Us champions in the Council were swept away ns hy a hurricane. PPULIO PARKS AND A OOOLC< VAIIII. If the Central Park of New York had beer laid mil ten years curlier than It was, It would have cost the city hundred* of thousands of dollars less than It has, saying nothing oftbo time that would have been gnlocd for tbe growth and development of trees and shrub* fiery- Chicago should learn a lesson of wis dom In this respect, und lose no time un necessarily lu taking the preliminary steps for such public improvements us the Interests of the city require, and as Us rapid and at- most unprecedented growth amply Justifies. I it Is not our design to advocate any purlieu- ] Inr scheme, or to favor any particular loca- j tions; but wc have no hesitation in saying that the question of I Public Parks and a Koulcvard, or grand avenue, encircling the city and con- ( nectlng them, Is scarcely Inferior to any in importance and Interest. As a preliminary I step it is perhaps most desirable that a Park I Commission, comprising n suitable number of our best citizens, to be selected In a man- I ncr least open to partisan or local influences, I should be appointed to take tbc subject into I consideration—to study Uln all its aspects I and bearings—and adopt a plan to be carried I out as fast os time and tbc resources of the I people taxed for these improvements would permit. If such a commission Is to be ap pointed, it should, above all things, be com posed of men of the most unimpeachable in tegrity; men whose circumstances place them above the temptation to use the place I for the purposes of speculation; men who will be guided solely by the convictions of duty to the whole people, and act with an eye sin gle to the public good. All schemes looking to advance tbe Interests ef private corpora tions or individual speculations should be promptly frowned down, and this great work confided to men who will look for their re ward lo the approbation of their own con* sciences and of the great mass of Ibeif follow citizens to be benefited by their labors. A scheme of public Improvements of this nature, wisely planned and faithfully carried out, would give our city more character and tone than any one thing heretofore alternated by any city on this continent. If properly done It may he carried through without im posing undue burdens upon the tax payers, whether the work should be done bj a general tax or by one levied on the property more Immediately bene* tiled. The work need not be pressed with greater haste than the circumstances would justify. The chief point Is to have a definite system of improvements projected and determined upon—made a fixed fact as early in the future as it cun reasonably be accomplished. It Is a proposition not to be gainsayed that Improvements of this kind must be made, if It is expected to retain among ns permanently the men of most wealth, or to invite hither for amusement nud recreation the thousands of men who arc acquiring fortunes throughout the Northwest. But a still mlghtierargumcnt Is found In the sanitary considerations belong* lug to such a scheme of improvements, and iu the health and pleasure It would afford the great mass of the people who can neither keep carriages nor fast horses, hut ride in the horse cars, and arc too closely confined to their avocations or too poor ever to get out Into the country. The lad that such a scheme would enhance im mediately* the value of all real estate Imme diately or remotely benefited by It, Is too plain In require elaboration. Thin great work may he determined upon and commenced now, easier, cheaper, and with less liability to fall a speculators limn It can here after; for with the growth of the city the difficulties and expense will increase. The assured future of Chicago warrants and de mands the Inauguration of an enterprise of this description, that shall distinguish her from all other cities of the country. The great commercial centre of the Northwest, h will heonrown fault If we do not make Chicago also the centre of the wealth and i fashion of the Valley of the Mississippi. 15P A few daywago, Mr. Kasson, of lowa, until bill before the House of Representa tives, making It'n felony for any .Twine to or tier or decree the rale of tiny person Into h’av«rry own pnnlrthmeiit for crime, or upon any other pretext. Thin net was aimed di rectly ut the Courts of the Slate of Maryland, who persist In executing the old pro slavery laws of that Slate. The bill was passed, tvml seven Copperheads recorded their names in fiivor of It. One of the seven, we arc gratified to learn, was Mr. Ross, ot IUU State, whose previous rcc ord has been of a character that would satis fy even Jeff. Davis. There is no clfect with out some cause, and wc suppose wo arc justified In attributing this change of front hy Mr. Ross to that wonderful change In sentiment among Ids constituents; a change very nearly resulting lu his defeat In the hitherto overwhelmingly Democratic Dis trict. Wc are glad that the lesson has not been thrown away upon Mr. Ross. Z-T7“ Tho reply of Senator Trumbull to the idler addressed to him by General Palmer j»n the subject of the Civil Rights BUI, is all the more crushing for Its politeness and dig nity. It appears that General Palmer has reduced his claim to the authorship of the fivil Rights BUI, to the first section thereof, which declares all persons of African descent, s-orn and residing in the States, to be citizens. It will probably be dldlcult to es tablish the parentage of this idea. If Gen eral Palmer were applying for a patent upon it, his claim would be defeated by the fact that Mr. Raymond of New York, and Mr. Farnsworth, of Illinois, bad both proposed to have U Incorporated in .he legislation of Congress before it flashed upon General Palmer. And, as everybody knows. Attorney General Bates had publish ed an elaborate opinion, iu ISC2, to the effect t bat all persons of African descent boro and residing In tlie United Slates are citizens. General Palmer has not explained, up to the present time, the alteration of the date of ids letter from “January 10” to “Decem ber—.” After he shall have done this, he can getilc the conflicting claims to the graU Idea, which burst from him at an uncertain period of time, at his leisure. Another expedition was started out from Sprinpfiyid on Friday to hunt np men io Chicago who would advise tho Cook County delegation to violate their Instructions In re lation to the Senaiorshlp. Their mission was a total failure, and especially so among tho soldiers, who have no sympathy with the aristocracy of political Generals who are grabbing all the offices, by fair means and foul, in the gift of the people. The soUtcrs of the Fourteenth Army Corps seem to have a special aversion to General Palmer, as though they knew him better than other people. Perhaps they did, until the altera- Hon of the date of his letter to Senator Trumbull came to light. jgy General Palmer had an altercation with the correspondent of the Chicago Tribune In the hall of the Lcland House at Spring field, in reference to the stealing and sup pression of a package of our papers a few days since. It is the unanimous testimony of those who witnessed the affair, that our correspondent bore himself with more dig nity and composure than the gallant General. Nobody has charged the gallant General I with stealing our papers. We do not be | Have that be did. Sucb an enterprise would . have been too puerile for a full grown man I : o enrage In. What about the alteration of I..the dale of the letter to Judge Trumbull, j-fr-om “January 10”. to “December—”? The friends of General Palmer pretend j find fault with Judge Trumbull for his alleged conservatism. The people, who in structed their Representatives to vote for his irc clccllon, were not aware of hla being Especially conservative. It is singular that • Judge Trumbull's Radical enemies should fix \ their admiration on a member of John Tyler’s Peace Conference, who was sent there by Governor Yates on account of his supposed firmness, and came homo In such a wilted and dilapidated condition that his friend♦ hardly knew him. THE SENATORIAL ELECTION. [From the Illinois Stasis Zcltong.] The Evening Journal, the day bdoro yesterday, had an article, in reply to oar article about the election of a United States Senator for Illinois, In which we contended that this question, by tbe de cision of the people, bad been taken out of the liands of the politicians. The Journal, at least, ducts not take the position which we branded yesterday as insolent anetocracy ai.d shameless infamy, that the Representatives and servants of the people need not care for tho Instructions of their electors. On the contrary, It concedes that a Representative Is a traitor, if be violates bis to (junctions. Hal Iho Journal maintains that tho people bare themselves nowhere declared for the re-election of Trumbull. We know very well that the Republican State Convention did not make a formal nomination of a candidate fur the United States Sonalorsblp, bn. It was not necessary, as there wore at that time uo other candidates before tbc people but Trumbull and Logan. Nobody spoke of General Palmer then ; at least ho bod not announced himself as a candidate. That the representatives of tho Republican party assembled la the tJlato Convention at Springfield eld not want Gen. Lovan for Rentier, is apparent from their nominating biro as Congressman at large I); accepting that nomination, General Logan re* clgned bis claims to tbc Benatorlal dignity, and so Trumbull remained Uiu sluglc candidate In the Uc ]il. Though not all, yet many. If not most of I'ie loylelailvo Conventions declared tbcmnolvoa for ]'rumble, for Jblmer not a einjU one. Uo w«a, In fad, no candidate during too canvass ; at lea«l bo hud not declared himself as aucb, though with more amnrtnopa than couratrohe may bavo thought ••flunking Jndtto Trumbull cono<l<n t imd then of pitching Into him at the light momenl.

Amomberupon «bom not only Illinois, hut fho wtndo nation looks with pride. Though ibo people have not declared unanl moody for the cl-clion of Trumbnll, (here Is not die least Indication that they Intend to defeat Trumbull by Palmer. Tbe latter Is supported by a lew politicians, whoso Intentions are to misrep resent and defeat tbe will of the people. Wc worn these politicians, and In their own in terest, wo hope that they will not carry their point. They would raise a storm of Indignation, not only in lliii. :TV,bnUn all the Northern States, which could hardly resist. AIM'. The Portrait of Mr. Lincoln. It is the peculiar beauty of a noble life (bat it grows more and more a power through every succeeding age, inspiring more and more each generation till in very truth the dead man bolds more of human destiny in his shade than can he found in the courts of a thousand kings. Good old Cincin* notus Is much more nsclul to mankind now than he was twenty-three hundred years ago, when he reluctantly left his little farm to command his country's armies. Oar first Itepubllcan president influences this nation more In 18(57 than the present Incumbent of the Executive house. Palmerston played his game and died in a day. Lincoln lived a life of natural nobility, and keeps on living and doing. Already he inspires more young men than any character of modem times. Already he has grown to be a large fraction of the aggregate of nil public virtue. Tho classes to whom wc arc mainly indebted for the preservation of such fames are the biographers and the artists. He who writes the life of any great servant of the race puts ou many hundred pages the word-picture o a human career. The portrait painter con dunscs that same life Into the glowing spirit uallty of one page and one word. We believe the critic ofsomc future ago wil fay that Lincoln, like the first father of the ItetwhUe, was fortunate la his artist. Stuart is safely fixed in the immortality of his sub ject ; but we arc not quite sure who will enjoy the long long unending society ol ihe lute President In the host picture galler ies in the world. That enviable boon will l*e enjoyed, there Is sonic reason to believe, by one of two great computing artists of our own generation. Wo have carefully com* pared tho two rival portraits of the first rank which arc Just now creating so much •lensant excitement lu tho world of taste. tVe have put them lu the best light and hav «g laid aside the Interminable editor’s julll, have assumed unwonted leisure and passivity so ns to feel the Impression of each iccnrding to Us power. We have changed tho positions to catch various lights and shades. We have tried the sunbeams of noon-day ami the gaslight of evening. To tost them as likenesses many who knew Mr. Lincoln pcrsonal'y have been brought'unwittingly before the pictures, and then lull to con them at leisure. Ac cord nn with the long time record of the TninvNE our opinion has no attribute ol Bnnynn’s Faclng-both-ways; and wo have deliberately concluded that Mr. William Kdgnr Mm shall has not only presented to he world a better likeness of Mr. Lincoln Imu Unit by Mr. F, llalpln from Carpenter’s [minting, Iml much more, ho has glveu us behest engraving of equal size that has ,’vcr been produced In America. There could not well exist features more lUtUcutt to tranlbrm to canvas than thoso of Mr. Lincoln. Truly has Mr. Cnrpcntor noted In his enthusiastic hook tho extreme sadness of the President’* lace. Equally true Is It that a spirit of tho most rollicking fun often played upon tho same sad features. So that neither a very grave nor a very cheery likeness would lie true to the great unity of wml characteristic of the subject. Thu foremost man of nil this world to bo embodied, form and spirit, for an audience of generations upon generations through all the infinity of tho luture—that is the mslhel le problem of the present artists. None is worthy of the sacred temple of curves and spirals and colors, who cannot say “I paint fur eternity”; and saerlllglous Indeed would be the artist who should put anything transient In a tame more replete with the highest utility and more deeply fixed In the teellngs of men than any other fame of mod* cru times. The true portrait, the one that cannot die, shows tho whole life of the subject at a glance. It must not be taken at an exceptional period of the career; It roust not represent particular and unusual moods: but It must, in some sense, Ik* modelled upon the events ot soul history, the moving Internal motives, tho feelings, the thoughts. We doubt If a representative likeness of Mr. Lincoln could be produced by an artist who knew nothing of the cman* efpation of slaves,—the faith in a great prin ! clp’c, the love ol truth, the humanity, the firmness of the emancipator In tho dark doubtful gloomy midnight of tho last months of 1563. So likewise, the success, ful artist must needs know that the same great man of so noble purpose possessed a kind ond tender heart, that he could upon occasion become a playful boy and wrestle with his dear Tad. We appreciate, there, fore, the enthusiasm whichlmpellcd Carpen ter to seek the White House, and Marshall to study and pore on the old letters, the speeches, messages, proclamations, ahd biographies of the illustrious deml god of his dreams. Neither or* Tlst, however, pursued a method qtiiic perfect. Carpenter’s six months’ visitation ot the house of tlTc most power ful man In the world made him giddy, and a foolish book and a sad picture are tho re suit. This book is foolish because the wo manly artist so obsequiously devoted him self to the hero-worship of his new temple that he forgot he himself was a man having the attributes of a man and not without parts; that book-making is sometimes im proved by a little thought and soma Inde pendence and originality. The picture came out faulty in representing the President la an exceptional mood, by reason of too much study of one period of his life ond too little thought of tho whole biography in unity, .a fault of that realism so full of talent ond so wanting In genius which has wcUnlgh de fected the high purpose of the art idea in America. We do not accuse Carpenter of the mechanical admeasurement of charac ter by square and compass In somewhat the manner of the pompous Lam-the-great Fowler with his cranlomctcr pointing the victim to the fatal mathematics of his desti ny; hut we do think there Is too much of the determination to present the ruder Mr. Lincoln for a reason not without affinity to that queer taste which makes a politician put on Uls ugliest hat and seediest coat when he goes to speak In ihe country. Wo think the omnipotent people another sort ot men; that they appreciate tbc political leader who has the strongest sense and a plain honest purpose. So in art nil tricks of the brush to catch popular favor soon meet the reward of oblivion or infamy. On the other band, Marshall did not, il mny be, see Mr. Lincoln as often as men ot lees capacity must needs have seen him. That vaulting young genius was in Paris during the winter and spring of the Presi dent's last days cxbibitlug pictures in two departments of the French Annual Exhibi tion of Art, and startling tbc fashionable world and the Emperor by his unrivalled skating pranks with Eugenie in thclmpcrlsl Park. The one great superiority of Marshall’s en graving over Ualpfn’s is the more natural ap pearance which the method of pure line gives to the expression of the face. By Ibis style of art, so true to nature, so difficult aud now Introduced upon a scale so unusual, a size heretofore thought by our be im possible, not only ore the light, and shade of the old school surpassed in delicacy, but the flue effect of color itself is produced. By the arrangement and direction of lines the real texture of the features Is shown, while by tbclr gradations every expression is brought out. No other branch of engraving con be truly called artistic. The stipple gives the features a leaden, artificial, dead look. Ferine in his “Better Land” has succeeded In giving more the clfcct of color than Halpin has shown la his Lincoln. To the real genius tbc line gives a power of expres sion quite beyond the reach of more talent; but with It mediocrity utterly falls. Marshall has lit up the countenance of tho grcat-soulcd Lincoln with a glow that almost deceives the amateur into the belief that the spirit has not departed and the old form has not already gone back to tho dust. ITalpin’s engraving presents a high and rounded forehead somewhat like Washington Irving’s; while In fact the hair came lower down, and tho forehead was more retreating. Tho eyelids arc fallen and the eyes are dim, giving the Impression of weariness, and toll* Ing no story of tho thought and Intensity which are known to have existed behind those organs. They rather say, ” Let us re tire.” The position Is so HI chosen that alt tho awkwardness and uouu of the grace of the subject Is brought out. The shoulders ure pr< seated at right angles to tho observer, mul the head Is twisted round to a two-third view, violating tho plain requirements of repose, and showing on ugly gup between llio collar and the beard, while an unsightly cai lu hold relief is protruded upon observa tion.

The likeness is surrounded by an oval engraved framework, with a wreath done In the highest stylo of art. The picture almost gives one the Impression of a medallion, it stands out In such relief. Marshall Is an extraordinary genius, not yet above thirty years of ago I A youthful New Yorker, without ever having been taught, brings out a steel engraving of Fre mont, which Is sold for eighty dollars to a bank note company, in which he mounts without Instruction, and immediately, to the first rank. Presently he determines to engrave a head of Washington In pure line, an undertaking which not a half-dozen artists in Europe would attempt. He suc ceeds, carries his engraving to Paris, deter mines to he a painter as well as an engraver, and succeeds again, lie paints the Janitor of the Louvre, ond purely on merit his two pictures are admitted to the Exposition, a privilege never before enjoyed by an American. Meantime ho outstrips the greatest skaters in France, and hearing of Lincoln's death, hurries home to paint and engrave the great President whom he ar dently admired. And now the world of art is startled by a five thousand dollar painting on exhibition in New York, and a larger and better line engraving than was ever be fore seen in America. Such is theyoungart -Ist whose fame will, we think, be coeval with that of Mr. Lincoln. Couture, probably the greotest living French painter, writes thus to the young man whom he refused as a pu pil: “ Your engraved portrait of Lincoln is really superb; it is striking, firm and most admirable in in its color. In order to sub stantiate the sincerity ol my admiration, let me addthat I should be happy to have you undertake to engrave one of my paintings.” TRAVELS IN TUB HOLY LAND.

A few of the larger towns have khan*, or public buildings, with large rooms for travellers, frill of ttcas and other veraila, dirty and offensive to every sense, without food or fur niture. lienee the tourist must have a dra goman, or man who acts as interpreter, guide and purveyor, with whom a contract Is made for the trip, at so much per day. He furnishes horses to ride, mules tor the bag gage, tents, food, cook, waller, beds, furni ture, etc. Thus, however humble one may be ot home, ho finds himself here at the head of quite an expedition. . The equipments for our small party of three includes three lorge tents, six horses, eeven mules, two donkeys, and eight i attendants oi all kinds. We usually send the tents and baggage ahead by a shorter route, and without any midday pause; so that 1 when we reach the appointed place ot | night, the tents ore pitched, and dinner ready.

He sends off our baggage train In the morning, and then rides at the head of our party, leading the way and carrying the lunch.

This is greater than formerly, and cannot safely bo estimated at less than ten dollars a day in gold, for the time spent In travel after landing at Julia or Beirut, which will be fiom four to six weeks.

The District Suffrage Bill, The Impeachment Question—Dis approval of Mr. Ashley's Proposition. Investigation of tlie New Orleans Itiot Committee. General Grant’s Views on negro Suffrage. [Special Correspondence of the Chicago Tribune. Wasbwotoh, D. C-, January 9,1587. Til? New Orleans Riot Committee has re turned to the city, though Its members are again temporarily absent, on visits to their respectlvCgbomea. I leara that the commit tee will not make Its report before the 20th of the month. I know there arc many per sons who say It was needless to send anyone to investigate these Hols,—arguing that the essential facts connected therewith are al ready well enough known. Without speak ing more definitely, at present, I state that these persons will bo confounded by the report of Messrs. Eliot and Shellaborger. The country has a general belief that the riot was a premeditated mnrder. An examina tion of the evidence to be submitted with their report will give everybody a startling array of facts la com plete justification of this belief. The committee gave the authorities of New Orleans their whole desire—an exami nation of some fifty or sixty ox-rchcl citi zens. Their testimony was, of course, guarded, but it points to the same conclu sions as that presented In behalf of the origi nal Unionists and the freedmeo. The bitter hostility of the Mayor and his police to ward the negroes and the couvcallonlsts, the studied efforts of the municipal authori ties and their alders and abettors to fan the general feeling Into a bloody flume; the dcvilliU satisfaction with which the Intelli gence of the murder of loading Unionists and numbers of negroes was received at the various rebel-sympathizing headquarters— these are the dark and woful threads that may bo lra:ed from beginning to end of this immense mass of evidence. Just wbat object the pro-sluvoryistn of Washington could have In starting the cheap fiction that General Grant approved the last veto, docs not readily appear. X doubt If anybody out ut the city really be lieved Ibo report. Ills general views on the questions in Issue between the country and the President ought, by this time, to be well enough known. In point of fact, X think he has given no otic any direct warrant for say ing wlmt opinion he holds on the subject of negro suffrage In the District, lie was, It is true, present at the White House when the veto was laid before the Cabinet, being there by invitation of the President to meet the

reconstructed delegation irom Arkansas; but Ids opinion upon the document and the nmttcrs therein discussed was not asked, nor did he give* it voluntarily. I deny, hi the most direct terms, that lie has el her pub licly or privately signified his approval of 1 the veto. % If .General Grant’s view of the matter be of any special consequence or significance, it is easily enough learned. The Arkansas delegation before alluded to asked his ad vice. Of course be gave It. lie told them in plain words th>»t there were two things for their Slate to do as soon as possible, viz., adopt thcCoDstitutioDalAmundment,uud put suffrage on an impartial basis. By this path, lie indicated, permanent peace and prosper ity would be assured. The Suffrage Bill veto was treated rather more cavalierly than any previous veto. The House long ago ceased making any show of civility toward Mr. Johnson, almost going, as you will remember, to the discourteous extreme of refusing to bear the last annual message read. The Senate has now become very tired of Ills dreary plati tudes and • democratic commonplaces ; and, on this occasion, even the gushing eloquence of Mr. Saulsbury tailed to secure such delay in Its action os would suffice for the printing of the veto message. The files of the Senate will not, however, miss its precious wisdom, for an action to print it was sent out yesterday after the Suffrage BUI had become a law by a fus three-fourths’ rote of each branch of Congrccs. The action of both houses'upon the velo and accompanying bill was as prompt and decisive osanydoay could desire. The House takes a positive pleasure in slapping the President la tbc face, and his favor is a bad recommendation for any measure before that body. It was certain enough, therefore, that It would pause in its work only so long as was needful to read the message and call the roll. This occupied about seventy minutes. There wasn’t the ghost of a chance for any Democratic follower of the President to make a speech; and the strong affirmative vote given to over-ride the vole was as sharp and aggressive os a ballot cau be with scorn and contempt at its back. The Senate, of course, was obliged to cudnrc some speech making, for Its rules don’t aUow an enforce ment of the previous question. It wasted less than three hours, however, in this man ucr-bringing out from grave semi-conser vative John Sherman the significant decla ration that he was ready for universal negro suffrage in Ohio, a pledge worth more than three hours of Senatorial lime any day. The vote was something more courteous and dig nified than that of the House, but none the less positive and pointed on that account. Sir. Vice President Foster voted as everybody expected him to,— thereby delighting the Democratic side of the chamber, grieving his Republican li lends, and giving us ail new cause for thankfulness in the election of General Ferry ns bis successor to tbc Senate. Wul the country sustain the House In Us first step toward Impeacblug tho President* For myself, I am afraid we are in great dan. gcr oi making a blunder that will be a crime. Other parties have found it much easier to pass from a majority into a rob norlty than from a minority Into a majority; and indiscreet counsels may readily, even if almost Insensibly, undermine and overthrow the-strongtowers of the Republican organi zation. This is one view of tho impeachment question; and, as the salvation of the nation is in the hands of the Republicans, it Is a view every loyal man should take. Tho plain Inquiry is, Con the Republican parly afford to ploy with tills flrer Can it afford to give the President an opportunity of mar tyrdom? I think not more than three of the ten Re publican Representatives of Illinois approve the Ashley movement ; and I know the ablest and most Influential of (hem wholly condemn it. Mr. Ashley was, of course, free ns any one else to introduce whatever resolutions ho pleased; and. when ouco introduced, tho House was obliged to meet them ns best It could. All effort to induce him to de sist from his oft-expressed purpose in tills regard was fruitless—impeachment resolutions ha hud determined to bring for ward. and Impeachment resolutions he would bring forward. I judge that less than half tho Union members of the House sym pathized with him in so doing, and not n few of our strongest men are very decided in condemning his ill-timed and Inconsiderate action. It is also proper to say that many gentlemen regard tho mutter as of very little coiircquenco one way or tho other—they say that the very decided reference of the reso lution Is an Indication of tho general oppo- | idtlon of the House to tho whole Asuloy scheme. The charges made against tho President, by Mr. Ashley, are weak—they are not near as strong and comprehensive as those made during tho late campaign by General Butler. They are, in fact, very commonplace—the mere rehash of third-rate slump speeches and cheap Congressional oratory. Mr. Ashley’s manner la making them was rather dignified and Impressive: but no trick of bearing ond gesture could cover the fact that the formal Impeachment read bv the Clerk from a scrap of note paper, was tame and inexpressive. It is of more concern, however, to Inquire what lies be hind these brief formal charges. Here one comes upon grave matter. One would say that the President’s record lies In tho full blaze of day ; but the air about the rooms of Mr. Ashley and certain other extremely Radical gentlemen, so-called, is heavy with hints of dark deeds and shameful misde meanors. It is well that the inquiry is in the;hands of the Judiciary Commit tee rather than In charge of a special com mittee with Mr. Ashley ot Us bead. The standing of Judges Wilson, Williams and Lawrence, cx-Governors Boutwcll and Thomas, and Barton C. Cook is such that the country will have confidence in their de cision. Tfie Speaker could hardly have cho sen a better committee for the Investigation. factious clamor and no tynus /aitis rumors will lead them astray. There is no likelihood that their report will be made in season for tbc present Congress. The Inquiry Is not one that can be made and concluded in a week or ! n month. What Its scope will be, bow wide U range, and how deep its farrow, are mat ers for future determination. Israel. [Special Despatch to the Chicago Tribune.) Washes gto?». January 13.

COILXOB. A rcsolnUon on the Industrial University was offircd in tbe Ilotue this momimr by Mr. Eddy, and made the special order for Thursday next at 2 p.m. It set* forth that, in accordance with the Concre?sional act, at least one college shall be in opciaticn by July 20, 18G7, and the resolution pro vidoa that corporations desiring the location of the University shall send In their propositions by the twenty-first day of the session, in order that tbo Legislature may locale the same and provide lor the opening of tbe school, os provided in see* turn four of tbo grant. There la a general disposition among the members to give fair play to all parts of the State, and allow those who wish to put In their claims for the location of the college. AUho same Umo all see the necessity fur prompt action. Unless Congress shall ex tend the time, it is evident by the terms of the grant that a school moat he In operation In July next or the grant Is lost to the State. In the dis cussion which followed, Mr. Baldwin ashed for delay until afierlhe passage of an enabling act, to a’low all counties that wished to do so to make their bids. There is but little time left to meet the requirements of tbe law, and whatever is done most be done Immediately. 11 now looks as If the Champaign people would capture tbe pnza. Their offer is a liberal one and in a tangible shape, and I have not seen or heard of enr other that meets the requirement The Champaign of fer has a strong representation here, who will labor assiduously for its success.

In December, ho said, be reduced bis dis coveries ui relation to that subject to wrlilns, and In January be submitted them to the constdera -1 tlonofMcssrs. Hamilton andKitaball,of Illinois, but, as be expressed it, they were deemed too strong for the stale ol Macoupin County, and Kimball sent them on to TrumoalU Uo did not remember whether that letter to Senator Trumbull was dated or not. From this'point ho suddenly diverged to a statement that he came hero with tbo supposition that the honorable office ol United States Senator was open to any one who was chosen by the rep resentatives of the people, and did not know that, any one bad a rested right In It. All ho claimed, he avowed, was to hare discovered that there should be no freed people la the United States, bat that all eboald be free, and that there should be no people In tbc United Slates but American dlirans. That dis covery wps made use of by Senator Trumbull, and became the centre of his bill—the princlok which galvsnlicd Its cotjbc Into Ute, as Christ did Latarns from the tomb, as ac knowledged by himself. In snpoorl ot this modest assertion General Palmer real part of a letter professedly from Senator Tnimboll, which, while correcting the asserted date of Paimcr's previous letter to January Wth. be admitted malting some use of the suggestions it contained. Trumbull admitted using not only his suggestions, hut those of others. What he need ot the suggestions of others, Mr. Palmer said, was a matter of sublime indifference to him. He only claimed the honor of his own discoveries m the National economy. The speaker then attacked the article in the Staff Journal, avowing that It was written by one who hsd made over {IOO,OOO In cotton specula tions during the war, who, while professing to be a minister of the gospel, held on to the public till until he bad to knocked off with a clnb. Mr. Pal mer quotes vaguely from the Cfobr, showing that Senator Trumbnll gave notice in December that ho would Introduce his bill, which he offered in January. From this U was inferred that General Palmer might have beard in Kentucky ot his bIU, and hence the reference to telegraphic des patches. The point regarding the dale of the let ter, the speaker said, was a piece of special pleading of the sharpest kind, aud a lawyer who would bo guilty of It would only not be kicked out of the profession, because there some mighty mean men In it. its meanness, hea aid. he would Illustrate, only that there were some things which could not be illustrated In all crowds. jTbere were ladies pteacnt.l This battle, he said, he waa fighting as a cltiscn, a husband and a lather. [Part of John Morrissey’s plea.] He farther devoted some time to scurrilloas abuse oflhe Chicago TnXßtnfa, made a weak at tempt to be jocular on Its treatment of the Sen atorial question, besought young politicians and everybody else to read bis letter to Trumbull, If | \hey wished to be wire and acquire political knowledge; said that Trumbull only spoke the piece he had mitten for him In Congress, and in conclusion, on the ground that he had always been a Republican, made a tender appeal to the members of t the General Aaasembly to deal gently and kindly with him He was from time to time encouraged by the ap plause of several ol his frleoda In the audience, and got through his difficult performance appar ently quite to his own satisfaction. Ho would ben fair stomp speaker ougenwaUles, If he uacdDCt* ter arguments, less tautology, fewer broken sen tences, and altogether bettor Erg'iah. After his effort General Logan and Governor Oglesby were called for, and e.icn, fur thoaako of old personal associations, mads a few brief re marks. General Logan was inclined to bo fa cetious. Palmer's speech to-night is regarded, even by bis friends, as bis own funeral oration. cohdespohdzkce betwekk ocxznaz. palxxb ajtd JUDGE TBDHBULL. SriuxarrzLD, January 12.

The bill underwent some, though not verr mate rial alterations m its passage through Congress. 1 remember having had a com creation with yon In Washington, as stated In vonr note, the precise language of which 1 cannot recall: but it affards me pleasure to state at this time that 1 was thankful for the receipt of your letter and the suggestions It rontsiccd, and that, dating the progress of the bill, 1 adopted not only yoar sug gestions, bat also those bom other quartern which 1 supposed would improve It.
