[untitled]

     A correspondent of the Boston Transcript, commenting caustically on the proposition to erect a statue of Benjamin F. Butler in Boston, says that “the least we can do is to have a little ring of celebrities of this sort who have been conspicuous as malefactors standing up in the common.” He adds, “I shall be pleased to head a subscription list for this purpose. I will subscribe $25 for [a] statue of Satan, $5 for Benedict Arnold, $10 for John Wilkes Booth, 30 cents for Aaron Burr, $5 for Guieteau and $5 for Czolgosz.” The writer also suggests the addition of horns and a tail for the Butler statue.
