A City to let.

--The Lincoln Government is hereby informed by the New York Day-Book that the city is ‘"for rent"’ cheap:

Who wants to rent a city — a regular ‘"big thing?"’ New York is just now plastered all over with handbills, ‘"To Let."’ Don't ‘"Dr."’ Lincoln, of Washington, want to hire a city? It will probably cost him a little more than it did to buy some of our M. C.'s — but the city is ‘"To Let."’
