afler the war the Atlanta ConnMuUon
This was Hie llrst and lust time that
tlm hero of Appomattox over looked
upon Atlanta. Tluoughout that dreary
December day General Grant quietly
diwotcd himself to the object of his
mission. He was making a tour of tlio
South, at the request of President
Johnson, and his nrlcf sojourn In At
lanta was for the purpose of ascoi tabl
ing tlie sentiment and temper of tlio
pcoplo and their leadius. Fcdoral of
llccrs, ex-Confederates, Union sympa
thizers and tho unreconstructed talked
to tho statuesque soldlor. To ono and
all tho Geneial listened with grave
attention. Indignant loyalists told him
that tho lebols hated the old tlog and
thieatenod violence to die Unionists.

On the ltd of March, 1802, Geneial
Hullcck, then In command at St. Louis,
telegraphed si3 follows (o General Mc
Clcllan: "Geneial l'opo will attack
New Madrid to morrow. At Hie same
time them will be a bombardment of

tory of Fort Donclsou as was
that ot the Potomac by the defeat of

no information of any kind from him.
Satisfied with liU vlctoiy, ho sits down
and enjoys it without any legard to tlio
future. (J. 1' . smith is aimoat the only
olllcer equal to the emergency."
To tills dispatch General McClcllan
replied on the next day: "Your dis

at once bo checked. Gcneralj mustob

And, cutiousiv enough, tho wouls:
"Appiovcd, Edwin M. Stanton, Sec
retaiy of War," are subjoined.
On tlio -Itli of March, Ucncial llalleck
again telegraphed to Geneial McClcl
lan: "A minor has just reached me

Geneial Grant has resumed hia former
bad habile. If so, it will account for
his neglect nf my often repeated orders.

The substance of the foregoing mes
sage was evidently communicated by
uoner.u iucuienan to uiorrcsiucm, lor
on the lOtli of March Lorcno Thoma",
then Adjutant-General of the army,
telegraphed Geneial llalleck:
"It has been repotted that i-onn after
tho battle of Foit Donelson General
Grant left his comma-id without leave.
13y direction of the President, the Sec
mtaiy of War desires 3011 to ascertain
and icpoit whether Geneial Grant left
Ids cmnirand nt uny time without,
proper authority, and If so, for how
long; whether ho lias made to you
proper icporls and letuins of Jils force;
whether lie has committed any acts
which were unuullioil'ed, or not in ac
cordance with military subordination
or propriety, and If eo, what. See 'Of-
uciai nccorns,' vol, vn.,p. ua;i."
In legaul to the foiegolng, Geneial
llalleck, on March lfitli, replied to
Geneial Thomas to the ell'ecL that al
though General Grant went to Nash
ville after tho battle of Fort I)onelon
without his (Halleck'o authority, ho Is
satlsllcd from investigation that he did
this from good intentions and from a
desire to subseno the public interests.
Goneuil Grant "lias made tho proper
explanations and been ordered to ic
sumo his command in llio Held."
It will be obeivcd that General
llalleck does not In thh dispatch say
anything whatever in referenco to that
part of Thomas' dispatch which refers
"to acts not In accordance with" mili
tary propility, and which in turn Is
based upon that part of Hillock's dis
patch of March Itli, touching the rumor
that General Grant had "resumed his
former bad habits." It states "that
General Grant has made the proper ex
planation"," but a caicful search
through tho olllclal records falls to ic
vcal any explanations whatoyer on

icplted to General llalleck aa follows:

circumstances I would do tlio same.
In all Hie correspondence that passed
between llalleck and Giant, nt this In
tel esting period, 110 leferenco 13 made
to the "habits" 01 tho latter, excepting
that contained in tho communication of
Geneial Hailed; to General Giant, dated
March I. Yotthedeelaiation contained
In Geneial Ualleck's communication to
Thomas on tlio loth ot Much Is spcclllc,
is clear, that "Ge11e1.1l Grant has mado
the proper explanations." A question
for llio futuie hUtoiiui Is, AVhem aie
they and what wem they? Did Geneial
llalleck or anyone oho ever send to
Genoral Grant u copy of the message of
March 4 to Geneial McClcllan, and If
so, what was and where U Geneial
Grant's leply thcieto? It i3, of course,
possible that priv.alo couespondenco
may hnvo taken place between General
llalleck and General Grant upon this
important subject, and the cuilous
omission of everything rolatlng to the
rumor that General Giant had lesumed
"his former bad habits" from the olllclal
correspondence, would seem to support
the piobablllty of this view of the mat
aitAxr ah a biArrsuAN.
IIIh VIouh UH to tlio Electoral Com
mission and tlio CoiiHtltiitlou,
An Inter-. lew with Geneial Grant
was had by Hie New Yoik Mail and
Express something over a year ago, In
which, being luLed whether he could
point out any existing defects In the
Constitution and suggest mnicdies, the
General replied :
"Yes; ihoie are sovcial amendments

A stoiy of some Inleiest Is being told
by a piumlueiit gcntlcnuu width goes
to feliow that the credit of bin lug llrst
discoveiod Genual Giant's genius Is
claimed by Professor l)als of West
Point. At llio time Geneial Giant
graduated fiom West Point Professor
Davis and Geneial Scimmoii, who had
"rsduated at West Point, weio pt.ifess-

which Grant belonged had graduated

thought Hie brlghest miut be the one
who came off with the highest liouois.
"You are wrong," said Piolessor

tho class Is 'Llttlo' Grant." Dils said
that die reason Qrant'ti average was so
low was that ho was until!) , and that
lie received black nuiks for his untidi

Scammon forgot all about this. Ho
went Into tho war, got to be lliigadler
General, was captured and held in the

Mr. Thomas J. Gargan ot Boston
who was In tho City of Mexico with
Gcnernl Grant somo years "after the
war relates the following:
One day General Slocum of Brook
lyn, N. Y., who was then a member of
CongicFs and who had commanded the
Second Aimy Corps, sat In tho Patio
with General Grant. Three or four of
us were thcio together smoking, when
General Slocum opened tho conversa
tion about thu Mexican war and dis
cussed tho capture ot Chapultepcc, Its
natural strength and tho marvel that
General Scott captured It with his
handful ot men. Either Grant or
Slocum 1 (inarked, I don't remember
which, that 2,500 Confederate troops
such in tho Aimy of tho Potomac en
counteied would have held tho place
against 23,000 of our tioops. They
talked of Geneial Quitman and Ids en
try Into tlio city, and conversed for
Home tlmo about old nimy friends and
acquaintances. Slocum left us shortly
after. Qrant remained qnlto silent for
a few minutes, and at length sold,
"Gargan, lot's take a short walk."
Wo went as far as the cemetery whero
the American soldiers who lost their
lives In Mexico are burled, or, as the
Inscription over the gate Informs you,
"Hurled under nn act of Congicss."
Wo walked through thoccmetery. Gen
eial Grant seemed much allectcd.
"They, woro bravo fellows," said ho,
"but wo must all como to tills ut last,

On tho21stot May,1881,Mr,Moigau,
the Mexican Minister, gave a reception
at his hou:o in honor ot General Grant.
After two hours of patient attention to
tlio guests by General Grant, having
nuld his icFpects to nil, he said:
"Gargan, tell your wife where you may
be found, and wo will go Into tho next
room and havo a soolal game ot cards."
Tho party consisted of Goneral Grant,
Governor Facheco, Genoral Frlsblo and
myeclf. Wo played whist, a gamo
which General Grant played very well,
having Governor l'acheco for his part
ner, Goneral Frlsblo and myself wero
beaten. His wife called after him nt 12
o'clock, and General Grant, who was
olvvnvs very attentive to his wife, said:
"Gentlemen, tho ladles demand our at

Later on hi llio siege, when Uiu op

rango, pickets were doubled at night to
prevent surprises. This was dangerous
business and weariness, for tlio guard
must bu watchful and wakeful through
out the night, and them was no relict

side courteous and icspeetful, and oc-
eassionally talkative If the olllcers wem

"Yank" sit facjng each other only a

was on this particular duty an ouler
was whispered down the Hue, "Don't

that tho "old man" himself was making
a personal ippection ot tlio grounds.
Ono night In particular ho sauntered
along within two feet of die vvijtcr, the
Inevitable cigar In Ids mouth, and after
ho had gonu a little distance an idea
struck tho "Johnny Rob" and ho ques
tioned. "Say, Yank, what you doing with two
officers of the baj?"
"There Isn't two," was tho answer.
But I've seen 'em."

The following is nn extract from a
sermon delivered on the 20th ultimo by
Itey. George M. Siiibmno of Little
"Vlctoilous on many Holds, tlio great
soldier surmndeis to death nt last. In
the eaily .Inly morning a palo horseman
dismounted In front ot die cottage at
Mount McGregor and went In at die
window. As the nurse saw him ap
proach tho General's bodsido ho said:
'Go out I go out 1- q'hls Is my cliargo I'
But he would not go. Tlm nuiso sent
for tho phvslclans in haste, and thoy
came and said: 'Go out ! go oqt ! This
is our patlont I' But the pale hoiscnian
moved not. Then Mrs. Grant said to
him: 'Oh, go out I go out I This is my
husband)' Cu)onul Giant and Mis.
Sattorls said; 'Go out 1 go out This
Is our father ' But the gi lm horseman
put his hands upon tho General's wrists,
and his pulses ceased. Next tho cold
hand was laid over the heart and It be
came silent foiovor. And, finally, tho
hand crept up to die ejes and the por
tals closed upon this world, and all was
sllont. Grant had gone, and then the
palo horseman was toady- to go. Ills
work was done."

Hiram Is from tho Phronlcinn, and slg
nilles "kingly;" Ulysses Is of Greek
dorlvatlon, and means "valiant In war:"
Grant is a nuro Saxon word, and menus
