A FERTILE CONTROVERSY.
New Yonk, October 24. In an
interview in the Tribune State Sena
tor Arkcll, referring to TJopew's
letter on Grant's connection with
the proposed plana of President
Johnson, recalls a conversation lie
had with Grant just before his death.
"After reading a book called
'Downfall of the Republic,' " says
Arkcll, "Grant said: 'I have been
called as commander of the army to
conclude the suppression of one re
bellion and have been personally
the means of preventing a subse
quent civil war, menacing and
dangcious, yet of which little is
known.' A venerable financier who
used to be well known on "Wall
treot, and was thoroughly informed
in political nmUcr.s, in alluding lo
this expression of General Grunt's,
which his physician, who reported
it. attributed to possible mental
wanderings from physical weakness,
said: 'I remember the time well.
The rumor struck the street that
some poitentous disturbance was
brewing in Washington. Govern
ment securities dropped terribly
from some unknown c.iusc. The
cause of the depression was found
to have originated in Baltimore.
Subsequently when the immediate
trouble was over, it was ascertained
to have been based on information
procured by Bob Johnson, the Presi
dent's private Secretary, who sur
reptitiously copied and sold por
tions of the draft of an intended
proclamation, in which President
Johnson proposed to declare Con
grcssiadjourncd and demand a full
representation from the seceded
States as the only constitutional
body he would recognize." This
corroborates, or perhaps rather sim
plifies, Mr. Depew's recent state
ment. It shows how much larger
than we know is the debt we owe
the silent hero who stood between
the wild and infatuated ambition of
a weak but stubborn man and a
great national calamity."
what hux iutti.ki: ai&.
Nnw Yoiik. October 2.1. The
Commercial Advertiser publishes
an interview with General Butler,
by its Boston coriespondent. on the
Grant-Johnson controversy. Gen
eral Butler says there arc mairy
icasons why the charge that John
son desired to revolutionize the Go
ernment was not brought up in the
impeachment tihd. The chief reason,
and the conclusive one, was that the
offense was not charged in the aiti
cles of impeachment and he (But
ler), as counsel in that case, did
not care to offer incompetent testi
mony. The charge was not em
bodied in the articles of impeach
ment because it could not be
proved. The talk between General
Grant and Johnson, his Commander-in-Chief,
was in the nature of a
privileged communication and that
Gcncial Grant so held was shown
by the fact that he did not disclose
it till long after Johnson's death.
"Thcie was another pioject of
Picsident Johnson's as to lcvolu
tionizing the Goernmcnt, some of
the details of which were partly
known at the time, but which could
not be pioved and which wcic not
brought into the impeachment pro
ceedings. I myself had some very
strong moral evidence upon two
questions which I did not caicto
make known to the public in the im
peachment proceedings, but one of
which I investigated secretly, as
Chairman of the committee for that
purpose, and while theic was dis
closed to mc some very damaging
facts, under the circumstances they
were not so conclusive that I deemed
it pioper to exhibit an article of im
peachment against the President on
that behalf. I still retain some of
the instruments of evidence, which
btiongly tend to support my belief
that theic wcie other propositions of
Johnson to control the Government,
diffeiing from that made to General
Grant on the measures to be taken
but not in the end to bo l cached.
It now seems to me, for the fiist
time, that it must have been made
after General Grant had icfnsedto
accede to Johnson's imposition, and
knowing now what had been said to
Grant it would seem to show that
tho proposition was entertained be
cause of Grant's mfusal, and while
what was known to mo in regard to
it gave mo a strong belief that it was
not in a shape to be brought before
General Butler declined to say
what tlicso proofs weic, and inti
mated that they would probably not
bo made public until after his death.
AIIM1UAI. AMMKN'S bTATKMhM.
Philadelphia, October 2!i. A
statement by Admiral Animen, re
lative to General Grant's part in the
boiateious timo of Johnson's Ad
ministration, is mado public hero
to-day. Ammen relates that General
Sherman, speaking to him some timo
'ago, stated that ho (Sherman) upon
being called to Washington by Pre
sident Johnson went first to Grant's
house immediately upon -arriving nt
fc the capital, Genet nl Grant enld
there was n disposition in the Cabinet
to get rid of him (Grant). A pro
position had been made to send him
to Mexico, but he had determined
not to go. lie said he would stand
a court-martial first. "Well, what
do they wantof mo?" said Sherman.
"I do notkuow," was Grant's reply.
Sherman then went directly to tho
President without waiting to visit
"Mr. President," said Shcmian,
"this is a diplomatic mission and
General Grant will not go upon it
and he will disobey the order if it is
issued." The President seemed
very much surprised and said he had
a great regaid for General Grant
and would not like to do anything
distasteful to him. Sherman re
marked: "If it will relieve the
Executive of any embarrassment I
will go down myself." "Very well,
if you will go that settles it," said
the President, "and it will bo just
as well." Five days later General
Shcinian took a steamer for the
Gulf. "Thus," said Sherman, in
stating the matter to Ammen, "was
the difficulty, so far as Grant was
concerned, bridged over, and he
was kept from an open rupture with
the Executive. My opinion is that
they desired to get rid of him and
keep him from being a candidate for
the Presidency. What they wanted
of ine in case General Grant was
sent out of tho country I do not
know. The discussion between
Picsident Johnson and myself never
got tint far."
PLAYIrJC ON NAMES.
Euitou Bulletik : "While leading
the lit of passengers per S. S. Ala
meda, and also comments on the
same, I was somewhat amused to
notice, that if the steamer should be
cast upon the desert island men
tioned, it would not only lie sup
plied as far as persuasions are con
cerned, but would also be furnished
with a tailor (Taylor) the goddess
