the homage paid the remains of Presi

performed a mournful dirge as the re
mains were carried by eight soldiers
from the hearse to. the Governor's room.
The coffin was placed on an inclined
plane so that:the face was in full view of
the passers for two or three minutes.
The embalmers then rearranged the
body, which had been somewhat diatur:
bed by the journey; after which the -lid
was removed, affording a view of the
face and upper portion of the breast.
The appearance of the dead President
bears no marks of pain, but the eyes are
sunken, the .face somewhat discolored
and sallow about the lower part, and
dark around the eyes and cheeks. . The
lips are very tightly compressed. The
remains will. not again be exposed to
view until their arrival at Springfield.
After the embalmers had prepared the
body for public inspection, and the
whole lid of the coffin being still open,
a full length photograph of the corpse
was taken. The lid was then closed,
except enough to show the face, and tke
crowd was allowed to enter the City
Hall. Many of the visitors were fe
males, a large proportion of whona wept
bitterly, and one or two endeavored to
kiss the corpse, but were prevented.
One poor Irish woman laid a small cross
at the foot of the coffin, with a "God
preserve your soul." The eartiestness
and apparent joy at depositing her tri

THE APPEARANCE OF THE PRESIDENT
The following truthful description of
the appearance and embalming of Presi
dent LINCOLN is taken from a ‘Vashiug
ton correspondent of a New Yerlil pa
Death has fastened upon his frozen
face all the character and idiosyncrasy
of life. Be has not changed one line of
his grave, grotesque countenance, nor
smoothed out a single feature. The hue
is rather bloodless and leaden ; but he
was always sallow. The dark eyebrows
seem abruptly arched ; the beard, which
will grow no more, is shaved close, save
the tuft at the short, small chin. The
mouth is shut, like that of one who had
put the foot down firm, 'mid so are, the
eyes, which look as calm as slumber.
'Pie collar is short and awkward, turned
over the stiff elastic cravat, and what
ever energy, or humor, or tender gravi
ty marked the living face is hardened
into its pulselesi outline. • No corpse in
the world is better prepared according
to appertinces. The white satin around
it reflects suffiedent light upon' the face
to show'us that death is really there.

Lincoln died, Drs. Brown and Alexan

Upon it. The same men, in the same
way,-have' made perpetual those beloved
lineaments:- There is now no blood in
the body •; 'it was drained bithe jugular
vein and sacredly preserved, and through'
a cutting on the inside of the thigh the
empty•blood vessels were charged with
a cheinical preparation which soon hard
ened to the consistency of stone. The
long and bony body is now hard and
stiff, so that beyond its present position
it cannot be moved any more than the
arms or legs of a statue.' It has under
gone many changes. The scalp has
been removed, the brain scooped out,
the chest t opened, and veins emptied.
All this we see of Abraham Lincoln, so
cunningly contemplated in this splendid
coffin, is a inere'shell, an•effigy, a sculp

the most remarkable circumstances con

the private boxes in the theatre had

the morning of - Friday. They were un

Booth jumped on the stage after the
commission of the act- he did .not fear
arrest from any parties who might have
occupied them. This is but another,
and one of the strongest, eviderices , going
to show the premeditation of the murder.
The cpiestiori now arises, who rented
the boxes, and did it not naturally

GENERAL SHERMAN'S BLUNDER.—Froin
official dispatches it will he seen that
Gen. Sherman has committed a most
serious blunder in his negotiations with
the rebel Gen. Johnston, touching what
some would call a surrender, but what
is really nothingmore than a disbanding
on the part of the rebels, going home,
placing their arms in the State arsenals,
and promising not to oppose the Gov
ernment any more. Acookding to the
terms conceded by Sherman, the United
States would be placed in a most humil
iating position. We should lose every
thing we have been Ehting for.
Was Gen. Sherman mad when be
agreed .to such terms ? No sane man
could have so utterly transcended his
polvers,j:n . o.wipg as t.e„yrips.khayslirtown.
that Grant, in the terms allowed to Lee,
and in reply to propositiohs from the
latter, emphatically disclaimed all au.
thority to treat upon the question of an
armistice, or any political subject what
ever. Sherman had the same instruc•
tioris from tie President; yet in the
face of them, he assumes the power to
set tlethe entire political as well as . mil
itafy poiky of the c'ountry.' •
It is true the Government promptly
and in the strongest manner disapproved
of the sad business, ordered Sherman to
resume and vigorously prosecute hostil
itieS, and in the mean time dispatching
Lieut., Gen : , Grant to relieve him of
the command, withprderso compel the
rebels to an unconditional surrender;
but the blunder will still survive to dim,
the ltistre 'of the fame of the man in
whom'we all had so much confidence.
Sherman was our model general. We
regarded him as riot only possessing
military genius of a,high oider, but as
intellectually the ablest of our comman
ders. In fact the fore . ° and style of his
dispatches and letters impressed us with
the belief that he enjoyed a respectable,
share of statesmanship. But it cannot
be denied that to concede the terms he
did, viewed in a military point, was an
unparalleled act under the : circumstan.
ces ; and viewed in a civil or political
light, it can be accuuutedjor only ,on
the score of insanity. Be seems, to
have been complet6,ly deluded by the
wily rebels, who laid a trap for him, in
order to gain time to escape from the
vengeance. of the country by making
good their retreat into foreign lands,
with the booty plundered from their
own deceived and outraged followers.
tiFir It has been stated . that Millard
Filmore's house in Buffalo has been dis

but it is a fact disgraceful to the man

Nor hio he, since the beginning of the
war, exhibited the American colors, or
shown the slightest sympathy with our
soldiers or our cause. That, Millard
Fillmore.is a disloyal man there remains
not a doubt, and the American people
should make him feel the force of their
