The quarrel Between the two ends of the Avenue had then assumed an attitude of dead Earnest i was corresponding for the Canol Natl con Nordal under instructions to do the fair thins by both aided but i was already Prev Salced in favor of Johnson not Beeance of the justness of his cause but because of the under dogged--9ss of Bis fight. Both political parties were Lally against him. The democrats though making Ashow of support were secretly in league with the Republican who were most bitterly fighting him they hated Bim for Tho past they were unable to use Bim for the present and they feared him for the future. He stood to them very much in the relation in which an old lady of whom tradition Speaks stood to her friends it was impossible to live either with Bim or with on Tom. Tho blood of the Republican Martyr might become Tho seed of the democratic Chundi and scatter to Tho winds the Hopes and aspirations of a whole score of democratic candidates chief among them Hendricks Aud Pendleton who a adjust erected presidential lightning rods Over their Heads and have never taken them Down since. Well of course i called at Tho White House that evening. I was considerable astonished when or Johnson revealed the purpose of his invitation and still More astonished at the manner in which be made the revelation. As i afterwards Learned he was Given to Vebr a Steon land cab in private conversation. Indeed he swore like our army in Flanders when excited on topics of personal concern but it was a harmless kind of profanity a sort of conversational beat lightning that lit up the Iky of Bis Tete a Tele without injuring anybody s person or character. With him As with Many others Damus and Bells were made to Supply the deficiencies if a vocabulary picked up without the Aid if schools and books.

A a a s s s Tho impeach me t scheme bed not then As Lumen very important proportions but i think or. Ashley had already offered a Resolution of Impe Chmoni at any rate or. Johnson seemed to know what was coming it and he talked freely and bitterly against his Aemie whom he denounced As usurpers Good rebels and traitors All in league to subvert the Constitution. The elections of the previous fall�?1866�?bad gone largely again it him and his Philadelphia Conven Tion had proved a great i dilute but he attributed a great Deal of this to the treachery if the democratic party whose leaders he Aid were Arald he wanted to be a democratic candidate for 1sg8, Berea according to Hia own Deci Aratico not ipg was further from his Pur pose Quot six months in this position Quot said Quot be Quot would disgust anybody. You hear lobbing from morn log till night but the by of office office office its the old cry i beef beef beef that Patrick Heury talked about in revolutionary listened rather than talked to or. Johnson for an hour or More As i Rose to i asked him it i might use the sub 3 of his talk for a letter to the Comal and to replied with careless cheerfulness in the affirmative Quot Chat is Quot said he "11 you put me Down right but the Dan in papers Are As bad As the politicians in misrepresenting me. Don t want you to take my Side Quot said he Quot i can fight these Fellows sin lie handed but put me Down i assured him i would do so and i Ltd award got his own word for it thai Tho Promise was kept.

Gen Grai had been appointed Secretary of War in Stai tons place during Tho preceding summe., under personal Promise As Johnson More than once very forcibly asserted that h would hold it st the pleasure of the presi Dent and surrender it to him but never to Stanton. When very Early in 1s6s, Gen Grant Afier the Senate had ref sad to Sanction the surrender of Stanton resigned the position Luto Tho bands of or. Stan Tui there was no Moas Are to the denunciation of Grant by Johnson. I had heard him abuse Thad. Stevens Sumner and All the rest of the. Rep Allcan leaders his language concerning them wag mild and de Rous Oom a with what he said of it he called Grant s treachery. He told me once Cabinet meeting in which be confronted Gen. Grant with Tho question of veracity and said be Quot i pinned Bim own to it and to looked As if the floor would open under him and let him the quarrel thus begun lasted while both men lived and if furnished the occasion for the violation of i precedent a old As the country. The cons Tom bad always been for the oath Long and the in Cooling presidents to tide to the Cape tol in the same Carriage on Knauft Uratio Day As joint participators in the quadrennial ceremonies. On the 4th of March 1869 it to do what one had always done before. The next Day i met or. Johnson on Pennsylvania Avenue and spoke of Tho matter to him a we Quot said he "1 did my part of the business. It him an invitation but be did t accept this it is proper to say is an expurgated report of Tho sex Presl Dent s observations. It must not be supposed that general Grant was behind Johnson in the matter of poll onal denunciation. He kept his end of the line up in a less demonstrative but Quito As effect Leo Way. What Bis curses lacked in loudness i they made of in depth. And if be greeting on Jothi Quot Artl Clea Quot Bim cordial a Ever or. Johnson Maas i could till i not willing to speak himself there were hundreds of willing ones to do the damning Foran incoming president for Grant waa the foreordained candidate of the republicans even before Bis quarrel with Johnson. It is curious to reflect How the political leaders of those times swing Back from the extreme of denouncing the one aria Andy Johnson to the other extreme of tottering and fawning upon the one Man Power in his destined Sec lessor. The incense of flattery which waa burned he nostrils of Gen. Grant just then must have been anything but Sweet to a Man of Bis discernment and Good sense and it la pleasant to Inow that some who were most fulsom Ely Active in the work were disappointed in their great expectations of Swan tall Reward. The Jwj Beachmont project which had languished iat months was suddenly revived in Tho Honse of representatives in March 1863, on the appointment of Gen. Thomaa As set teary of War and interim. Ii took but a few Daya to prepare and present articles Quot and there was an appearance of Jim reality Jabout the matter when the Normal prese Tion was made at the bar of the Senate a few Days later. I immediately if of or. Johnson s general a him at any time hearing or rather of for my role i Bis presence was that of auditor and not it Ator. If i talked at All it was manner of a person who pours or Down a country pump in. Bucket full out of it. My st evening after the 0 presented was As Ash do More profane. Ilous to know so far him what was the general impression a to the result. I told him peachers thought they had a thing a on conviction and that men wore Ady being promised positions i Derben Wear the new president but hat to still bad a big Chance Lor acquittal in he personal hostility of senators Fessenden Grimes and Trumbull toward Wade. In tact it waa met so much the trial of Andrew Johnson As the election of Benjamin f. Wade and i bought there Wero republicans High to lot to secure Wade a defeat. This May see n now like an extremely a judicial View to take of so Gravo a matter observation in Washington makes a acquaint with strange ideas of statesmanship. The Juliet we Lail in love with through an opera Glass from the dress Circle is not Alwa Yaso adorable when we go be Hind the scenes an confront the paint powders and gew Gaws which enter largely into the make up some of our Best states men at a Shiu Tou Are liable to the same Cri Lolam. At any rate As Between their prejudices and their principles they will al ays incline in favor of the former. If the inc Aaion to Andrew Johnson had devolved 30n some Man entirely unmixed with the Psi Sonal wrangles of the United states sen ite in 1868, conviction would have been al nost certain. Or. Johnson waa at list unwilling to believe this he thought every re in Allcan senator hated him Woree than he aled anybody else. But the sequel showed his mistake that night or. Jobu Eon spoke Ory freely about the pending trial. I gathered from his manner and his tone that so far from being afraid of conviction he rather courted the martyrdom of it. He said that 11 hey Oon voted Hli a be Woid Start out to rough the country with a View to convicting to pm Belore the people. In is most troublous Horais he never lost Faith Bis own ability to e was the Sale defender of the a t Bave always thought that no blog Ould have suited him better than to have walked out of the White Bouse on a warrant f conviction and entered upon another King of the Circle More elaborate than the st. On the occasion 1 refer to spent a Long time with or Johnson and got the material for an letter his line of defense and anticipating much that was after Vard made Public never lost heart or i Plait a Eva appeared to do so unless the Oil owing incident be taken in proof that he did i was talking with him one sunday evening out general end acts of politics when he suddenly interrupted me. Said he Quot do Yon remember what sort of a it it Ejli that tried and convicted Charles i i reputed Quot that to the Best of my recon Leucion it waa a court appointed by Patli Ajo int and composed of Mem ii t body offices of the army and ii if London Quot Quot How Many Wero there said or.

Quot Well Quot he Coati no a do you ret elect what became of the men ibo convicted King Charles How Many of chem died in their Bedal and How Many ran away from the country alter the restoration Quot i uld not a Awer this question directly but i promised to go to the congressional Library next Day and Road ail object in the shop the would Quot said the president on to make out a Sammiy of get it into the papers. To i on this subject that he was have me Send this particular innate but insisted that it item la a new York paper so gel Back to Washington in ? these did scoundrel a what. For them Quot his request was 1, Anda few Daya later a new in Emily warned the senators of be regicide. The Only charge it Johnson by the Impe Aliera to give him any personal an it thai he had used Bis office for of Bis own personal aggrandize Butler s committee had summoned one amp of Tho clerks of Jay Cooke s Bank and had it him through a very close examination As to Johnson s Money matters but wet boat Lara Verlong anything at All tending to Fust Antale Tho Obar goof personal Oor Nipton. One night he got very much excited on this Aub act and drawing Forth a memorandum Book proofed de o figure up from it what to had before the a it i what he Hod received Roth and what he then considered himself Worth. He made by self a loser by a Ronalder Able sum then be began to figure on what he supposed general Grant to be Worth Quot let me see Quot a Aid he Quot he was l Worth cd a in 1861 begot so much naming a figure in Philadelphia and so much naming another figure in new York. He must be Worth nearly a Quarter of then he named a number of Republican senators who bad entered Public life very poor and had become very Rich. Quot now Quot said he if they could make me out Richer to Day tap i once was they d say i stole 11 but these tents at the other end of the ave nne All came honestly by theirs of course in this connection to referred to the fact tha he had. V. Decunea a pbe3ent of Avo Arlage and pair of horses very Early in his ministration and to said that since in the people tha Asti tuntion whole mail Belesi the commencement of the impeach meet trial a gentleman in new York bad sent him a Check for ten thousand dollars to help him out of his troubles but that he had returned it immediately or said he Quot of course if a mangles me ten thousand dollars. It s be cause he thinks i have something Worth More than ten thousand dollars to give him and although i suppose i make a great Many very foolish appointments i Don t want to have it said that make any corrupt there has been a great Deal of talk about the use of Money As a Means to Secura the acquittal of Job Nab. Without making any valuable addition to the find of Inoima ton on this in bloc i will state what i think i know to be a fast that or. Johnson not Only never consented to the use of Money but often said in my bearing that if he could be act netted for five dollars he would not pay Oai sum not let a by body 3lbe pay it for him. I am borne out in this assertion by the Well known fact that he allowed Jere Black to withdraw from his Welense rather than give Bis official Sanction to a corrupt land Trade in which Black was interested. He told Black that he would rather be convicted ten times Over than Purchase not Only defense but even acquittal at such a Price. Black evidently believed be bad Johnson in Bis Power and it looked like a had piece of Bual Nesa for such a Man to withdraw from a on the eve of trial Bat Obusan was a the kind of Man Lobo Lotom dated and besides As i have already said he lid net look upon conviction Asao unmixed evil to him. Money was used in a a arc to of ways to defeat the Schems of con action and what la Mora there was a Good Deal More Money ready to to used in Case of necessity. There were votes cast for con fiction that could have been persuaded la the other direction in Case of a emergency. The beat consideration with the anti Lupoi tubers was to make sure of Nineteen vote i believe there were a Ftp f or men in the Senate then and Thuiy were Camions enough to get a Low Quot alternates Quot As they do in convention. A it there were dark ways and vain Incus con elected with both sides of the a it Ruggie which would take s volume in Stead of an article to relate. I can not however refrain from telling one of them. Or. Willard Salisbury was a democratic senator from Delaware with Good in Lant Lons but a very decided weak less for toddy. He would stay sober or months sometimes but the Mere smell of liquor would Start him on a spree that might last Lor weeks. He had been quite steady Lor a Long time and had promised to abstain entirely from liquor while the impeachment trial lasted. One evening a Young Man called at his room and desired Quot Quot interview which waa granted. He himself As the agent of a wine and liquor importing House in new York who had come to Washington to have Tho carib amended with respect to these article and he would like to interest the senator in his cause. He concluded Bis remarks by saying that to had brought some samples of wine and Brandy with him and asking the senator s permission to Send a Low bottles to his room Salisbury immediately saw in this proposition a plot to get Bim drunk so that be might to either absent from the Senate when the vote of impeachment was taken or that going to the Senate in a state of intoxication to might be expelled As had often been threatened in Bla Case to deed jeep Luaa Tor his expulsion bad once been offered and was then on the Calendar of the Senate. It looked then on a close calculation As if one vote subtracted irom the democratic Side would secure Johnson s conviction. Sadly Bury ordered the bogus wine merchant out of his room in Short order and immediately acquainted several of his friends with the details of the plot. It reached Johnson s ears very soon Quot they can t beat me any tiber Way Quot said the president Quot and they re Quot toting to get the Jurt it was rimmed Lster a resolved by Johnson s friends to keep a close watch on Salisbury and this precaution waa soon rendered necessary. Salisbury whether a the result of a conspiracy or in obedience to his own Sweet will got Furlou Aly drunk on the Day rendered my Morable in the history of the trial by the Auti impeach Mont Speed heart Fessenden Trumbull and other Republic it was a secret session of the Senate but it soon got noised abroad that Saulsbury waa trying to get the floor to make a Drunken speech. Half an hour later he would probably Hayo been expelled. But he was persuaded to leave the Senate and be was accompanied to his room where be was put to bed. The vote waa expected the next Day and As it was import ant to have Salisbury present a consultation was held As to the beat and quickest Means of sobering Bim of. Somebody suggested a big i right As a Good thing for him under the circumstances. Beia waa a Bab-0 us fire extinguisher in the Hall which was immediately transferred to Tho bedside i Iho Tipsy senator. Saulsbury Toso of his haunches to know what the infernal thing Wai for and the agonizing manner in Whiteb he begged for mercy when told it was a Rich pump and that it would be applied to him 11 he Wero not duly sober by b in the morning will not soon be forgotten by the Lew who witnessed it. From that Day Forward until the vote was taken Sauli Ehnry was sent to the Senate every Day in a Hack and his movements were carefully watched so that he waa present Toyota against impeachment when the final vote was taken. There was a sequel to Tuta the Antum poachers insisted on the mosaic Law of retaliation drunk for drunk and there was a Barca aeon doll Plum Kremens on the other Side of the Senate chamber before Long which can even now be traced in the official record of tie High court of impeachment. Recently there waa published As editorial Luth ene san article written by a Rilend Peru curly interested in that sublet. A blander in its rhetoric gives the Philadelphia Timea an Opportunity to say Quot the Milwaukee news is controlled by or A. Noonan a worthy and talented gentleman of Irish extraction. We suspect he is there yet from the following on the Centennial which we out irom that pair but whether the West comes up or not the exhibit will be full and attractive and yet none of us want to mingle with the throng and hear our absence the cause of reproach Quot Milwaukee news.
