THE DAILY grfiftlnU TELEGRAPH PHILADELPHIA, TUESDAY, HAT 30. 1871.
TUESDAY, MAY 30. 1871.
REPUBLICAN C1TT NOMINATIONS.
The delegate elections of the Itepublioan
party of Philadelphia are to be held on the
second Tuesday of Jane next, and the politi
cians are busily engaged in preparing for that
momentous oontest. On its result, and on
the oharacter of the nominations made by the
Eepublican conventions, muoh de
pends. The Democrats, warned
by innumerable defeats, and pro
foundly impressed with the necessity of
making unusually good nominations, are
hunting up their best material, and, from
present indications, they will make one of the
best city tickets they have ever formed in
Philadelphia. We wish we could say as muoh
for the prospect looming np before the Ite
publioan party; but, unfortunately, there are
many reasons for apprehending that it will
nominate a number of inferior, objeotionable,
obnoxious, or unpopular candidates, who will be
as mill-stones tied to the nock of the party to
drag it to destruction. We need not particu
larize. We have no animosities against any
of the aspirants to gratify. Our only object
is to promote the welfare of the city, and to
nrge the Republican party, ere it be too late,
to conBtruet a ticket that is in all respects
worthy of the support of all its
well-disposed members. But while
the Democrats have held their pounds
in leashes and compelled the vile elements of
their party to remain in enforced retirement,
the Republicans are, from present indica
tions, more likely to select the bulk of their
ticket from a class of positively bad, indif
ferent, or inferior aspirants than from the
hosts of .talented, honest, good and true men
belonging to their organization. If these
fears are realized, the Registry law, and
all the false counting that dishonest return
judges can do, will not save an ignominious
Republican ticket from deserved defeat.
Thousands of the rank and file of the Repub
lican party, and of its most exemplary mem
bers, are rife for revolt. They are tired of
voting for local candidates whose tainted
reputations are the sure precursors of iniqui
ties in office, and the doctrine is growing
every day more popular that it is infinitely
better to vote for an honest, exemplary,faith
f ul, and talented Democrat for a local office,
not involving partisan principles in the dis
charge of its duties, than for a corrupt, dis
graced, ignorant, or disreputable Republican.
Ludlow as Judge and Sheppard as District
Attorney command the respeot of the com
munity, Democrats though they be, and they
serve the interests of all good citizens, while
it is plain that the Republican party has been
injured rather than benefitted by sup
porting the nnworthy men who have occa
sionally been elected heretofore by their suf
frages. All other things being equal, the
masses of the Republican party prefer to sup
port Republican nominees; but a large and
growing minority of Its members are in no
mood to invo&e the great evil of entrusting
important local powers to untrustworthy men
simply because some remote, presumable, or
imaginary good may thereby be accomplished.
A local partisan victory resulting in the choice
of corrupt or contemptible candidates is
worse than a local defeat; and as partisan
issues will not be direotly at stake this fall
thousands of independent Republicans will
gladly embrace an opportunity for making a
sedulous 'effort to secure the best possible
selection of local officials, irrespective of their
partisan affinities. Muoh more than the
usual number of cut and scratched tickets
will be polled, if the Republicans make in
ferior nominations; while a thoroughly bad
Republican ticket will be overwhelmed in a
whirlwind of popnlar indignation.
The graves of the brave men who died that
the nation might live will be decorated with
fresh flowers to-day, and young and old will
nnite in doing reverenoe to their memory.
The custom of laying floral tributes upon the
graves of the Union dead has its appropriate
ness in the fact that the great civil war
which for long weary years desolated the
fairest portions of this continent was one of
principles and not of policy. ' Many were
slow to reoognize all that was involved in the
conflict, but as the tide of battle wavered
between defeat and victory the nation was
forced to recognize the fact that the war
could have but one result. Onoe being en
tered into, the total defeat of one party or the
other could alone end it, and a Union victory
meant the destruction of slavery as the in
spiring cause of the war, and the strengthen
ing of all the ideas of nationality which, in the
North at least, had been increasing in iuten
sity year by year, notwithstanding the demo
ralizing doctrines so industriously preached,
in season and out of season, by the Seces
sion leaders while preparing for the great act
of treason which brought ruin on themselves
and upon their followers. As the war was
one of principle, and as the principle in
Tolved was that of republican freedom, so
the memory of the men who laid down their
lives for the national cause is held in greater
reverence by those who reap the benefits of
faeir sacrifice than it would have been had
they fallen in a mere war of conquest or even
in a conflict with a foreign invader. If the
custom of decorating the soldiers' graves with
flowers serves no other good purpose, it will
t least have the efl'eot of impressing those
who participate in the ceremonies of Decora
tic n Day with a proper idea of the value of
the principles which were involved
in the war for the suppression of
the Rebellion, and of inciting them
with a fresh enthusiasm to perfeot the great
system of government which the result of the
war prevented from being a disastrous failure.
The soldiers of the Union armies will have
died in vain if fraud and corruption are per
mitted to do the work which treason and
force were unable to aooomplibh; and the
' decoration of their graves will be bat an idle
ceremony if it cToes not inspire each mat t
woman, and clrtld with ko earnest desire to
advanee public and private Virtue, and to
resolutely resist the plans of those who, for
the gratification of their own selfish ambi
tions, would not hesitate to involve the nsr
tion in ruin. The raoral of Decoration Day
is that it is neoessary for those who wish to
preserve our liberties unimpaired to be vigi
lant always, and to take that intelligent inte
rest in public affairs that fraud and corrup
tion will not be enabled to make headway;
and those who stand by the graves of the
dead soldiers and scatter them with fragrant
flowers should resolve to do a real honor to
their memory by doing now, and at aM future
times, their whole duty as citizens of a free
country in which the propor administration
of the Government is a matter of concern to
WBAT NEXT FOR FRANCE t
With the collapse of the Communist rebel
lion comes before the world the question,
What next for France? and the difficulties in
volved in it are greater than any presented in
the subjugation of the armed mob of Paris.
The country is laid waste; the capital city,
beautiful Paris, "the joy of the
whole earth," is in ruins, and
a multitude of conflicting interests and innu
merable crude and conflicting experimental
ideas are in the way of the establishment of
a stable government that will be strong
enough to maintain its authority and to re
vive the fallen fortunes of the nation. The
best man in France at the present moment is
M. Thiers, who In his best days was little
mere than a tricky and unreliable politician,
with but few real statesmanlike qualities, and
yet upon him in his old age has appa
rently fallen a task requiring far-
seeing wisdom and a large-minded
policy if it is to result in the preservation of
France from the misfortunes which have be
fallen her in the vibrations of her political
pendulum between Red Republicanism and
Imperialism. Imperialism, which many ac
cepted gladly because it appeared to be the
only means of relief from worse evils, has
proved its utter worthlessness, and the ruins
of the palaces of Paris are monuments to Red
Republicanism which the nation cannot but
behold with horror. Now the red flag has
been trampled in the dust, however, and
between the crushing defeats inflioted at
the hands of the Germans and the destruction
caused by those who had proclaimed them
selves as the representative Frenchmen of the
Bge, the nation has been brought to a lower
depth of degradation than ever before. The
world will await with anxiety for the next ex
periment that France will make in the way of
self-government; and while the prospects are
certainly not bright, we can at least hope that
a country that has done so much for civiliza
tion may profit by the terrible disasters that
have befallen it, and that the France of the
future may be a real leader in the direction of
liberty and enlightenment.
LIKE CURES LIKE.
A utile exercise of the imagination will
enable us to appreciate the position of Mr.
William Edwards and Mr. Timothy Collins,
the renowned light-weights, as they stood
before Judge Dowling in a New York court
on Saturday. We published a report of the
proceedings yesterday, and very good reading
it made. When the judge said, "The court is
going to give you men a blow that will knock
you out of time," the distinguished prisoners
doubtless thought he was the j oiliest head
"beak" they had ever come before. They
wanted to be knocked by such an affable gen
tleman. After such a speech, and with suoh
evident intentions of doing the fair thing,
this amiable judge would only give them a
love-tap, only order them, with a wink, to
furnish bail (that the nearest tavern could
supply.) for a trial that would never come off.
When the truth finally dawned on them and
on their crop-eared friends, what dismay t
Such a complete setting down was
never before seen in a court
of justice. On a low calculation
about five hundred individuals are at the
present moment preparing newspaper articles
on this subject, expressing the received and
entirely proper horror of civilization at prize
fighting, and hoping that Judge Dowling's
earnest rebuke may have a salutary effect
ur5on the lower classes. About four hundred
of these articles will call the blow a "tren
chant" one (without in the least knowing
why), and the entire five hundred will be
very sure that, if criminals are punished as
relentlessly by all judges as by this judge,
there will speedily be an end of everything
like ruffianism and disorder in the land. With
all this although we do most potently and
powerfully believe it we have nothing to do,
but there is a phase of the subject, a modest
wild flower of a thing, which runs a danger
of being overlooked and trodden down in
the heartiness and unanimity of the popular
approval. Judge Dowling's sucoess on this
oocasion renders it desirable that his method
of dealing with prisoners should be
reduced to some ; system. For instance,
the judge might say: "See here, my
man, I am going to make an example of you;
I shall put you in Chancery." If the reader
don't know he should, this is one of the
most awful fates that can possibly befall a
professor of the Manly Art. Or he might say,
"See here, my gay com-pan-ion, you are to
be sent to grass and heavily nobbed; two
years, Mr. Clerk." For a hardened old
offender the judge might have this address:
"Come hither, my sweet-scented gazelle. Do
yon know what I am going to do with you?
No? Well, I'll tell you. You are to be tapped
and bunged and drawn and sogged and made
groggy.and you are to endure a variety of simi
lar complications until you are to be gone into
and finished. That is what is going to happen
to you, sweet one. Five years, Mr. Clerk, hard
labor." We give these only as examples. It is
easily to be seen that the idea can be enlarged
on to any extent, having, in fact, no limit
but the taste and fertility of the learned
Judge. If slang is the language of the future,
these "sabre cats of Saxon speech" may do
an aII-ipoiiant wtS in taking it fromtb
region where it has heretofore most flourished,
and in giving it a wider audience. For the
world it gives to p'acrog great weight on tb
words of a jndge, of considering and quoting
them much. But sim'iia similibus curantur,
we suppose. Judge Ludlow might have as
tonished both plaintiff and defendant in
the St. Clement's case the other day if he
had only taken this tack. Imagine him ask
ing: "Did yon ever hear what happened to
the celebrated Game Chicken at the hands of
the Nobby Shropshire One ? You will find
it reported in full in Donibey f, 175 and
there is no more satisfactory preoedent to apply
to this case." If our brother Ludlow oould
only be induced to say something of that
sort he would perhaps gratify, but would
certainly astonioh, both the religious and
