WHY GENERAL CRANT BECAME A
General Grant ami all the mem
bers of his family have been, as
might have been expected, very
reticent as to the privations and
anxieties they have stiffcied since
the f nihil c of the firm of Grant &
Ward, lint tho facts communicated
to old friends in confidence have
been gradually coming to the public,
without any intentional bcliayal of
trust anywheic. So much, however,
is known that it occuued to the
writer of the communication hcic-
Witli ptiblibhed tliat a connected and
careful account of General Grant's
pecuniary straits would be moie
satisfactory to the people and would
give a jubtcr view of his situation
and of his trials and conduct than
the more or leas exaggerated stories
that aie afloat. The communication
which follows was written by one
whose lelations witli the Grants have
been and arc such as to insure the
most intimate knowledge of the in
teresting facts stated. Of course
the writer prcpnied and furnished
this communication without the
knowledge of any member of the
Grant family and without any solicit
ation on the pari of any one con
nected with the Mail and Express.
But so interesting a story will speak
for itself. Here it is :
"Four days after the failure of
Grant & Ward, Charles Wood of
Lansingburg, N. Y., wrote to Gen
eral Grant, whom lie had never seen,
offering to lend him 81000 for his
note at twelve months without in
terest, with option of renewal at
samo rate. lie inclosed a check for
8500, ' on account of my share due
for services ending about April,
" At this time General Giant had
absolutely not money for current
expenses. Everything he owed io
the world had been invested or de
posited with Grant & Ward. About
S80 in his pocket-book and 8130 in
cash belonging to Mrs. Grant was
what he had to live on. The trust
fund had been invested in Wabash
securities and the company at this
juncture defaulted payment, while
the guai antors, the E. D. Morgan
estate, could not pay until the com
pany had defaulted for six months.
General Grant accepted the timely
offer of Mr. Wood very guilefully.
11 About the same "time Mr.
Romero, the Mexican Minister, came
to General Giant, and also insisted
on aiding him with a loan of 81000.
The Gcncial declined at first lo le
ceivc the money, but Mr. Romero
left the loom abruptly, placing the
amount on the table. But for these
two nets of friendship one from a
man whom Gcncial Giant had never
seen, the other from a gentleman by
no means wealthy the distiess of
the General would have been actual.
The checks which had been paid out
a few days beloic the faihue were,
of course, nol met ; the payment of
May 1st on the trust fund was
swallowed up by Ward, and thcie
was absolutely lor a time no other
"Mrs. Giant, however, had a
little house in Washington which she
had bought some ycais before for
S7800, and she was able to sell this
in a few weeks for SGJJOO. A check
was at once sent to Mr. Romero for
the debt to him, the outstanding
checks on Giant & Waul for per
sonal or family expenses were paid,
and a little was felt for living during
the summer. The sons had all been
ruined by the failure as absolutely
as.the father, and two of them, with
their families, were obliged for a time
to live witli him.
" In this emergency the General
was asked to write a couple of
articles for the Century magazine,
lie was offered 81000 for the two
and consented to try his hand at
litcraturo. The articles wcic written
and the payment made, and about
Christmas the General was able to
pay off the pecuniary indebtedness
to his friend, Mr. Wood, with whom
he is still personally unacquainted.
The occupation of writing interested
him ; tho story of his old campaigns
distracted him fiom the thoughts of
his AVall-sticct troubles. lie con
tinued to wiito and finally decided
to compile his military memoirs.
The first volume of these is complete
and the second nearly so. The woik
gives details of his caily histoiy not
previously known, and a graphic
picture of life in Ohio before 1831),
when he went to West Point. His
account of the Mexican war is also
extromcly interesting, as lie was in
every battle except lluenn Vista,
under both Scott and Taylor. The
narrative of those campaigns, as seen
by a Lieutenant who afterward be
came the foiemoit soldier of his
time, is said by those who have seen
it to be fascinating, even to unmili
tary leaders, while the sketches of
the great Generals in both Northern
and Southern armies whom ho knew
as subalterns is something the like
of which has never been written by
Mich an author in all history. Nat

A SKILFUL SURGICAL OPERATION.

Dear Sir, 1 write to infoim you that
I have derived gieat beneiit from
"Seigel's Syrup." Poi some years I have
Millered from her complaint, with it
many and varied concomitant evils, so
that my life was a peipctual iniseiy.
Tweho mouths ago I was induced to ti'y
Seigel's Syiup, and although rathei
sceptical, having tried so many reputed
infallible lcmedics, I determined to give
it ut least a fair trial. In two or three
days I felt considerably belter, and now
nt ihc end of twelve months (having
continued taking it) I am glad to say
that I am a different being altogether.
It is said of certain pens that they "come
as a liooii and a blessing to men" and I
have no reason to doubt the truthfulness
of the statement. 1 can tiuly say, how.
ever, that Seigel's Syi up has come as a
"boon and a hjossing"to me. I have ic
comniciided it to scvcial fellow-sufferers
from this disticssing complaint, ami
their testimony is quite in accordance
with my own. Uiatitudo for the bcnellt
1 have derived from tho excellent pre.
paiation, prompts me to furnish you
with tills unsolicited testimonial.
