THE HANDSOME ENGLISHMAN.
From the S. T. Tribune.
Mr. Darwin seems strong in his faots when
collected by other people, and only arranged
; by himself. He is an authority on six-toad
' cats, and benevolent monkeys, and rcathetio
' bower-birds, even without having seen them.
But when it comes to the high-born Briton,
. whom he must have seen for if a oat may
look upon a king, surely a dissector of oats
. may contemplate a marquis soma glamour
seems to come over him. He does not use his
eyes, apparently, bat accepts the traditions of
ages as reverently as if he were an archbishop.
Ha attributes "the beauty of the upper classes
in England to the men having long selected
the more beautiful women." (Descent of Man,
pp. 340-1, Am. ed.)
The annual inroad of travelling Englishmen
is now becoming so large among us that een
nntravelled Amerioans are becoming familiar
with their looks. Many of these youths are,
- or purport to be, of high social position; and
. anxious inquiries are beginning to be made
why the representatives of this aristocratio
beauty do not appear among these travellers.
. n the frank language of the Washington
' oung lady, remonstrating with the High
. Joint Commissioner on this very subject, "If
the Queen has them, why does she not send
one of them over here?" One sees handsome
Englishmen, no doubt, but they are apt to be
on the forward deck of the yacht, not in the
. cabin; on the outside of the carriage in Central
Park, not inside., They are apt to be grooms,
or gardeners, or sailors, or belong in some
way to the degraded class of "cads." "Why
should there be this difference ? As Darwin
i justly remarks (though with an opposite ap
i plication), these classes "are plaoed under
equally favorable ciroumstances for the per
fect development of the body." Why is it
that, as a general rule, the fine young Eng
lish gentleman who visits us is less good
looking than the man servant he brings
with him? ' We speak in sorrow, not in
-anger. Everybody likes to see a handsome
man. When we are to meet Lord Frede
, rick Fitzregal at the club or at a dinner
party, we desire to see some one who has
Btepped out of "Guy Livingstone" such a
youth as Bnlwer first created and Wilkie
Collins is now endeavoring to extinguish.
The chances . are . that when the door
opens,' there Bhuffles in an under
sized, light-haired, near-sighted, awkward
boy, with a drawling Dundreary voice, who
seems afraid of his own shadow, and cannot
Seet man or woman in a frank or easy way.
e has a certain blunt and stammering sim
plicity, which is not to be despised. But
even the imagination of Mr. Darwin, whieh
sees infinite tenderness in a howling monkey
even the beautiful self-abnegation of Mr.
Disraeli, which bows its head before a class,
cannot possibly attribute anything but
i physical forlornness to this individual
' 1 representative. There may be handsome
' Englishmen of the upper classes, but
they must love tneir nomes very mucn. j.ney
rarely come here. We remember a certain
Sublio ball at a watering place whither Young
ewYork carried its thinnest legs and its
: slenderest chests; and the general result to a
lover of his country was not enoouraging.
Presently there entered the room an English
Tiscount, the son of an earl. All eyes were
turned on him with renewed cheerfulness; ha
-. : was so utterly insignificant of aspeot, that
even the fast young New Yorkers seemed a
l race of giants.
launch had a caricature, the other day, re
' presenting two young English clerks or bag
men of the most wee and emaciated aspeot,
(. seated on a tobacconist's counter, puffing
cigars obviously beyond their strength, and
deploring the physioal degeneraoy of the
. Americans. But Punch, with all his daring,
, still cherishes the traditional reverence for the
'.' aristocracy, or he would have taken his two
i. youths from a higher class. The average Eng
.,, lish rustiowho comes to America is physi
cally respeotable, coarse but strong; he mis
pronounces, but he has manly chest-tones; he
' is not near-siehted. nor one-sided, nor cinder-
' sized; he is what tha French call "n hsmme
' aolide" But who could see anything solid
1 "or commanding in most of the young noble-
men who run through America and pause a
little while in Washington, or New York, or
Newport, on their way to Salt Lake City?
Actually, we Americans are beginning to dis-
believe in Pelham and all his progeny, and to
- hold the only true type of the blood in Eng
, j land to be Mrs. Edward's "little Lord Petre"
' in "Steven Lawrence." Or is it, after all,
,i that the Lord Petres travel for their health
and, that Mr. Darwin s ' "beauties of the
i : . .1.4-
' upper classes" stay at home? 1; T
tVi'K DAVIS AND THE DEMOCRACY.
i 'Trtm the N. Y. Timet.
L- L;i -The. ex-President of the Confederacy is
V'getting to be a veritable Old Man of the
''.T Mountain to the Democratio party. 'The
: 'Ju frantio ' efforts they are now making to
;V iibake him'oif are laughable, when one re
t'ifj members how they have been wont tosym
0'fu; 'pathizd with 'him, apologize for him,' and
! give "him 'aid and comfort ia times past. It
: 7 -f "would pot: '; be strange if the Democracy
fcbould be found, ere long, clamoring for his
"'W-'life aa loudly, as they formerly pleaded to
l.l'iiiil'iifaUcm.. .the gallows. The World,
which used , to . be, his best friend and
i l' r firmest "supporter, . Is especially venomous in
its present: treatment ' of the Rebel chief--i"
It has taken to calling him names, and ac
tually surpasses, in its contemptuous epi-
" thets, ' the. , vituperation whioh,' daring the
Rebellion, it poured out upon the head of
President Lincoln! ''-In ' a ' single artiole in
Friday's WflM, we find the 'once renowned,
r: . patriotic, virtuous, and brilliant Jef. stigma
tized as ''broken old Jeff. Davis, ' "an utter
political wreck," A 'bankrupt politician," a
"false prophet- indulging in nis "dotage
; folly," etc. , "A cause must be desperate in-.

with every chance of the moon. -II does not

way robbers" one day,' and pore and honest
t officialsthe next. This nay b oving to his

ought to be hanged, but b W .no more

"when the World and the Demooratio prty
were pivir g him all the aid and enooumu.
1 jnent ifeey dared- to giv' Inded,we oaaot
r t t- see cvflereia JtS-, Davit differ' 'from' .the
Deniocrutio party at they stood eveftpao yar
ago. He still believes in the "lost cause,"
and, if there was any meaning in their words,
so did they. He is for keeping open the
issues which Republicans claim were settled
by the war; so were they.
The World talks about tho "complete una
nimity of the Democratio party in discard
ing bygone issues," and says "the New York
Democracy defined their position long ago."
How long, pray ? It is bnroJy a year since
the Deroooratio party of New York met in
convention, at Rochester, to nominate Judges
of the Coart of Appeals. 'There was no par
ticular necessity for introducing party poli
tics, and especially national politics, into such
a convention, but the Democracy did intro
duce them nevertheless. They were so full
of the subject that they could not keep it
out, and what did they say? The burden of
the speeches was preoisely in aceordanoe with
the positionfoccupied by Jeff. Davis to-day.
The constitutional amendments were to be
resisted at all hazards, and tho State judi
ciary was to be made a party to the new
revolution. One of the chief speakers in
that convention, and the man who acted
as spokesman of the Tammany delegation,
was Richard O'Gorman the "silver-tongued
Gorman," as the Demooracy delight to call
him. In advocating the nomination of San
ford E. Church for Chief Justice, Mr. O'Gor
man said that "the Democratio party required
a politician for Chief Justice of the Court of
Appeals quite asmuoh as a lawyer. The usur
pations of Congress and the so-called amend
ments to the Constitution which that body had
imposed on the country, required a man at
the head of the Judiciary of this State who
would stand firm. We had gone through, and
might still go through, revolutionary times."
There was only one Democrat in the con
vention (Mr. Ruger, of Onondaga), who had
the courage to rebuke these utterances; the
majority applauded them, and Mr. Church
was nominated against Judge Comstock, who- J
was tne candidate or those who, like Air.
Ruger, argued that "the State cf New York;
needed a great lawyer and not a great politi
cian for Chief Judge." Who believes that
the Demooratio party of this State really hold
any different principles now from what they
did a year ago ? And why should they attempt
to hiss down Jeff. Davis now for uttering
sentiments which they applauded then ? They
ought rather to reward him for his fidelity,,
and to adopt as a candidate tha man whom,,
for ten years, they have followed as a guide..
"THE NEW DEPARTIUBE."
From ths y. r. World.
Now that the question of forbearing any
fur i her opposition to the new r.mendmenta.ia
virtually decided, it may not bo Amiss to con
sider the nature of the "situation" which the
Democratio parry "accepts." . We can best
describe it by a compaiison. Suppose that,
ta the trial of civil suit, there is a czixed
panel of white and colored jurymen. John
Doe, one of the parties to the suit, chal
lenges every colored juryman whose name
is drawn from the box, but, in spite of. his
opposition, the jury as aotnally sworn is
finally oom posed of nine whit and three
colored citizens. Would John Doe act like a
man of sense if be shouM thereupon petu
lantly give up his case and refuse to produce'
his witnesses? The merits of his suit are
not altered by the composition of the jury.
The presence of the black jurymen . cannot
change either the law or the facts; and since
his ease must be tried by that jury, he will,
if a wise man, direct his counsel to -take even
more pains than usual,, and oarofully avoid
insulting the black jurymen. There they are,
on the jury benches; aad whether- he like
or dislike them, he cannot get them away
until they have rendered their verdict. '
Quite similar to this is the politioal situa
tion since the establishment of negro suf
frage. The political questions remain pre
cisely the same as if they were to be decided
. by the votes of unadulterated white constit
uencies. The really important thing is to-
have these questions rightly decided, ac
cording to their true merits; not whether
the decision is made by a larger or
a smaller constituency of voters. . The
point for the jury to- try is .cot
whether their own body is properly composed,
but the questions of fact between the plain
tiff and defendant in the suit before them.
We only muddle and confuse politioal con
troversies if we fail to distinguish between
be questions to be deoided and the persons
who are to decide them. 1 By accepting
-negro suffrage we increase our chanoos of a
candid hearing on practical issues. , The
negroes are of little account if we can con'
trol the judgment of the white voters. There
are ten white voters to one negro- voter,
taking the country at large. In twenty-two
of the thirty-seven States thera are thousands
of whites entitled to the eleotive franchise to
every negro, and those twenty-two- States con
tain more than two-thirds of our population,
It is their public opinion which we need to
influence, wnion we can most easily do by
withdrawing their attention from the decided
question of sun rage, and fixing it upon pend
tag questions of publio policy. The misrule
of the last ten years has been the fruit of mis
guided white voting. Its chief support has
been white majorities in the Northern States,
in most of which negroes have not voted at
all until within tne last fourteen months.
since the fifteenth amendment was declared
adopted. It is not negro voting but perverse
white voting that has so nearly ruined the
Now, on the question whether the right of
suffrage shall be continued to tne negroes
the Republican majorities would be as great
as heretofore. Nay, they would be altogether
larger, for most Democrats do not wish to
arrest the experiment. It is too obvious that
for the Democratio party to make negro -suf-frage
a political issue would be courting in
evitable, overwhelming defeat, because a pre
ponderant and constantly growing majority
of the pedple are unwilling to disturb what
has been done. It is high time, then, for
us to aosept the settled composition of the
jury, and proceed to argue our case on its
merits. We therefore most heartily rejoioe
in the declaration of the Ohio Demooracy
that they "recognize as accomplished faots
the three amendments to the Constitution re.
centlv declared adopted, and consider the
same as no longer politioal issues before the
country;" and we feel equal satisfaction in
the further unequivocal, emphatic declaration
"that the Demooratio party 'pledges itself to
a full, faithful, and absolute elocution and
enforcement of the Constitution as it now
is, so as to secure equal rights to all persons
nnder it, without duuuetion of race, color,
' or condition.
. Worldlong ago foresaw that this policy
was inevitable, and that the continued exist
ence and future triumphs of the Demooratio
party ere staked upon its adoption. For a
time we stood almobt 'alone, and inourred no
6uupTI: suspicion and obloquy , from persons
who now take up our views with the zeal of
new crmvert8. We are too glad of this co
operation, and have the welfare and suooesj
ti . the party too mucn at neart, to reproaon
ambodv with slowness or inconsistency. We
lave tried, to) be faithful to the light whioh
was fcivent us, and. the strong indorsements
we are receiving froca lire n hole party atones
for the detraction and distrust of which we
were the object before the
"sober -second thovgl.t which is
generally wise and always efficient'' had
matured the views of the panty. We claim no
other merit than fidelity to our sentiment of
daty. The irrepressible tendency of things,
operating on popular good senne and rectitude
of feeling, would ha7e brought the party
pooner or later to the same position if the
World had followed the party instead of lead
ing it. The sun shines first upon the moun
tain ' tops, but tbey are not therefore tne
cause of day. The earth has but to revolve a
little farther on its axis for the light to pene
trate every valley and illuminate the darkest
ravines. We suppose it will now be conceded
that the World foresaw the tendency of
events and correctly estimated their conse
quences; but the only credit it claims it- that
of an nnshrinking declaration of its- nenti-
ments when it thought them timely and use
ful, at some expense of popularity.

We have witnessed with considerable inte
rest the recent triangular fight between the
Fost, Tsleo-raph, and Bulletin over tha pros
pective municipal nominations of ths party
to the advancement of which they ar more
or less ardently devoted. Notwithstanding
the ominous indications, tho-1'ost is evidently
preparing to swallow the ticket, whatever be
its character, smack its lips, and cry "Hurrah,
boys, for our side !" The Bulletin is so pro
verbially uncertain and inconsistent, so per
sistently oontrary, its antics - continually
reminding the observer of the stupid
capers of a well-known jack animal,
that ii is impossible to tell how long the
streak . of virtue which at present affeots it
will last. The Telegraph, during the past
two years, has repeatedly given evidence of
an earnest desire to secure political reform,
especially in municipal affairs, and we there
fore hope to see it stand dm in the present
crisis. The agitation caused by its bold 'arti
cles shows how easy it would be to seoure
good nominations and thorough reform, in
both parties, if the press of Philadelphia
would heartily unite in a determined effort to
eecura that end. Alas! that we are compelled
to use the word "if I"
But, whatever course our journals pursue,
this may be put down as a foregone conclu
sion at the next municipal election in this
city the party will win that presents the best
ticket. The Post may call it treachery or
what it pleases, but, when The . Evening
Teleobaph says that, at the coming election,
thousands of independent lie pub Means will
gladly embrace an opportunity for making an
earcsst effort to secure the best possible se
lection of local officials, irrespective of parti
san affinities, it utters a-plain, wholesome
truth. The people of Philadelphia ar com
pletely disgnsted with the sohemes of politi
cal demagogues, and, we prediot, v.iil give
