Tliia fnae'ifal charge cf treason
againat Air. Johnson wis an o'd atorjr,
and bad long aince been trampled out
of existence in the minds of men not
waiped by partisan lute t y the retu ta
of tbe impeachment trial. Hut ever
since that lime certain prominent rad

been raado publij, tr'.umphaotly prov
ing Johneon's guilt, buuh men as
Blairc, Logan. Botitnel), ft Id germ
omne, did not hesitate to intimate this
in private conversion. Among tbe
irtttea whose testimony could be
evokea to blatt the memory of the
dead Andrew Johtson, it was clalme.i,
waa Gen. W. T. Sherman, who had an
active part in the imbroglio betwefn
Grant, Wanton and Join bid, though
hlmstdf not Implicated in any way as
. Mr. Dopew'a eprich and a sabse
qaiut ne-wppapor publication brought
ttiia private talk ts a lirair, and mdi
it a matter of kern publio at'.ention,
for Mr. D.'pew professed to have bad
tbe fac e at 11 st hand from no lew
grca an authority than Grant himtolf.
Of tbe accuracy of the Dapew quo a
tion. there can be no doubt, aa Col.
Fred Grant and tbe Hev. Dr. Newman
afterward told tbe writer of this that
they had oftaa heard Grant make
practically the name statements in
cotivereation. Tbe readers of this
journal will perden the writer if he
raatatta briefly Ihe.subctancs of Gen.
Grant's accusal on, a utteiod through
the a outhpleoe ol Mr. Dapew.
F ritly Andrew Johnson, ss a firm
believer that tbe SUtea had never been
e-n tltntionally or legally out of tbe
Union, was strongly of tbe opinion
that, inetintly the rebellion was nub
dued, ;the lately acceded titates hid
tbe right tieend their normal Oon
rresaiocal delega'ioti to Washington
to represent them In legislation.
Beojndly Mr. i Johnain's political
course, from the beginning, shaped
it ell to effnt this raault.whicb, if sac
cersful, would glae the ptrty ol treason
and dieanion, Sorth and South, tbe
numerical majoritv, and enable the
Bjuth to carry eat by peacoful means
whnt she brut failed in doing by arms.
Thirdly Tlio. president attempted
to secure Gorf, Grant's co operation, ss
the General 'tsmmandlng tbe army,
that the barking of Federal bayonets
mlcht bo at Ma brck in case there was
a Korthrrnvevolt against this mon
strous re vernal of the results of the
war, ss there would almost surely be.
Gee. Grant1 'Indignantly rolnsed and
imiinaltd tbat the bayontt of the
United (Hates would bo ranged on the
other sidq thould such an exigency
1 Fourthly Mr. Johncon, Boeing tbat
m. Grant would be a deadly oppo
mt to his plot, sought to remove
int from tbe scene by (ending him to
fexico oiva eomi-dlplomatic mission,
'has piitaog Gun. Mhermsn in com
mand of the army. Grant penetrated
the motive, and refused to go, de
termined to be on hand to battle the
incipient treason. It was this action,
coupled1 with Stanton's iron firmness
in tbo War Department fight, which
re vented Mr. Johnson from proceed
iff further with his plot.
Bhortir alter Mr. Depew had stirred
tip thV old issues tba writer was in
the West, atd took oocslon to call on J
Gea Hlierman at St. Louis, as this
emiuBot man had been ntenlonod as
neol those having unpublithed
ro ale of Johnson's treasonable plot
The gallant old aoldior, on being ap
prised of the motive of the vis t,
burst into a loud laugh of derision,
and said that iticb. rubbish was not
worthy of being discussed; that the
matter had been Bottled loog aince.
and Hint co man with two grains of
enee in his skull really believed that
Andrew Johcson, whatever mistakes
he might have made, was animated
byamihtbut pure and upright mo
tives. As to notes were taken of tbo
convocation, and the wrltor has only
bis memory to trust to, It is not
claimed that anything but the sub
stance ot ben. Hner man's remarks is
'How then do yon account for Gen.
Grant's stuctra b. lief llmt JohrtBon
was (lotting agaiiut the Union,"
"That's Very simple," said Gen.
Sherman. "Mr. Johnson sometimes
drank a little tcomuJi, Tnero'sno

cbati over a bot la, as often cccu s be
twain two gnntli'niep, Johnsju may
have made eoine r.iah Bta'ements ts to
constitutional recouslruction, not
clearly grasping tbe drift of bis own
remark, and that Gen, Grant may
easily have misUkea the purport ot
them and o got very wrong impres-
tiona. It was only at tbe lat during
the Stanton-Johnion imbrig'io that
any ill feeling grew up betwetn Grant

Gen, bheimao, "Dut it would naver

don't believe any Btttsman ever lived

"What do you think concerning

Johnson aktd him if he would sup
port bis policy, should it be necessary,
witi the power of the army?"
"I believe that the Piesident may
bave asked Graat in an incidental
way, and in one of his most careless
moods, whether be would give him
the support of Ihe army in ca e there
should ne any desperate collision be
tween himtelf a ad tbe Republican
faction in Coogrees. Bat this does
not presoppese any plan or plot or
even serious purpose on the part of
Mr. Johnson. It was one of tbess
tentative questions which any man
In tbe President's place might have
asked without any arriere peruee. I
should cert inly a tach but little im
portance t it.
"Now as ta t'ie a'timpt tj get
Gen. Grant out of the wy Ly sending
him to Mexico with Minlntr Camp
bell. It seems ta me that this charge,
If enbetantia'ed, Is one of tbe moat
dangerous of tbe whole eerier, as Im
plying vicious motive."
Geo. Shermtn laigbod long and
"That part of tbe business, Bid he,
"is one of the most extraordinary
farces in my whole exper'oncs. I havi
seen much roaring fun on and off tbe
stage, but that beats it all. Tbat wa
one of Howard's jobs. Johneon bad
but liitle to do with it. Seward was a
shrewd old fox, and he u ed Johnson
to nnll his chestnuts out of the Ate.
Tbe facta are simply three:. Seward
had be: n beaten eveiy time as a can
didate before the nominating conven
tion of the Republican party. lie was
mad for tbe I'reeldeocy. lie knew in
18041 that Grant was the man t) whom
all minds wore turning b the most
available Republican candidate, and
that his own chances wonld be ts a
feathei'a weight, unless Grant did
something to diminish bis own popu
larity. Seward reasoned tuat II Grant
could be sent out on this farcical mie
slon, tbe importancs cf which be had
artful'y exaggerated to the President,
the chances were he might da come
foolish or impolitlo tiling which
would kill bis Presidential cbancee.
Grant unquestionably saw the
li myi BUU WUU1UU u u
felt the importance politically of tUy
leg at heme just th n, though not, in
mv judgment, because he lea rod at all
on account of any Jobnuin plot. To
gat Gen. Grant out of the dilemma of
refusing to obey the rreeiuent a otuor,
I volunteered to go in bis place, Ou
priposlng this to Mr. Johnson, he
eald: '1 am glad to bavo you go.
You'll no just as well lor the purpose,
which Is simply to glvo tbe mission
addition! dignity by having a very
liigQ oltlcer ol tlie army associated
with it.' So I went, and Mr. Seward
was terribly chaarioed. As for tint
mirsion. thorn nover was such an ab
surdity.' I had a glorious junketing.
flone ct us went near toe city ol
Mexico or JUirts. and wesimolr bad
a first ta'e vacation. When I got back
Congrats pasted a solemn rs)iution
thanking me in glowing terms for the
admirable talent for dip oniacy and
discretion I had shown. The whole
thing was worthy of tbe Grand Ducby
of Gerolsteln. So much for Johnson s
des're to got Grant out of tbe coun

TDK PRESIDENT'S WOES
A SHARP CRITICISM OF THE EX.
ECUT1TE HI THE
Senate Committee en Pensions-
Why the Evidence Does Not
Aiwa a igree.
Washington, D. C , July 3 The
Senate Commit e on Pen ionp, in its
report n con ni' nding the press itte over
the Preaidrnt's veto ef tie b.ll graot
ii'g a poLscn to Mjry J. Ncttaire,
says: "So g eat his bi come the num
ber of Hicli vetoes interpo od by tbe
prrsnt Exe u ive, all within a few
weeks past, and so extrac rd.nary the
cen ure, some t mos rudely expr-esed
and la teany evtry icstancei sivertly
implied of the action of the two
houses of Congrats and of their com
mittees, upon which has devolved the
wearitome and generally unappra
cUted labor of lnveetigaling tuete
c'aims, atcompanied in many caes
by such ridicuie, of evident disgust,
with the claims themselves1, tbat your
committee feels that they are juitifhd
in a brief review of the circumstances
involved. In doing tbir, a etrong
tflort will be made to restrain a not
unnatural feeling of indignation,
which, if permitted to assume the
proportions which tbe provocation
justiflsf, would wholly destroy these
repeitful forms of expreraion wbich
muet te maintained in official inter
course between the different officers
and depattmen'a of the government.
This becomes the more necatsary in
propoition ts it ia rendered the more
difficult by rea-on of tbe unjust and
unexiimpled ttyle In which some of
tbe meteag'S of the President are ex
pr.Bstd. It shall be the effort of tbe
(ommittt e to get on this difllcult m it
ter without violatiog the courtesies of
official in'.erc 'ursi by imi'ating an ex
ample which, so for ts we are aware,
is without precedent, and which, to
tar as we ate concerned, shall remain
so." The committee ptoceeds to show
that 0 por cent, of the t-'eoate hi Is,
and only 8) per cent, ot the House
bills subm tted ta the President, bave
been vetoed, and it bsjs it is uo. in
ecnsible to the special condemoa ion
whioh this disparaging contrast in
flicts. "Much crit cism," the report
continue, "bts been indu'gfd iu by
the President of the methods of legis
lation porsuod by the two houses of
Congreee, and however uninformed be
may be upon the subject, and however
unintentionally, by reason ol want
of knowledge, ho may bave misrepre
sented to tbe country the methods ol
legislation which have been pursued
In like cases ever tines Congresses and
Parliaments bave existed, and which
have, since Parliament became free,
been safe from Kingly and Presiden
tial interference, all tbe same, the peo-pl-j
are misled by the nn warranted
statement of the President as to the
manner in which legls'aton upon pen
sions, claims and tbe like, is and of
ot necessity muat be conducted.
Tbo pens'on businers of the Senate
has never been belter done than dur
ing this s ss!ou. Those members of
tbe committee who have performed
tho most have been as careful as any,
and derition of their patieni, consci
entious and exhausting labors to help
the nohleit and best ton ion cf good
poor and tbe country's benefactors,
tau originate only in a wise and nnble
nature which is misled, or in one tbat,
formed, sadly needs teconst ruction or
The report embodies a copy of tbe
instructions by tbe Assistant Secretary
of the Interior to the Commissioner of
Penaions, as follows: "Please cause
the tame ta be critically examined,
and report to thia department whether
in your opinion, any objections to
their approval are known to exist. In
cases where objections exist they
should !) specifijally tot forth."
Thus indicates, the committee eays,
unmistakably that the President relies
upon the Commissioner for tbe facia.
The report continues: "Wby the
President should initiate this game of
sbnttlecxk and pelt a cc-ordmate de
partment ot tbe government with
vo'.ota baso npon thejeview of the
action ol Congrees by some subordinate
of ihe Commtseioner of Pensions is a
topio which will bsar thought, bnt
perhaps may be left without discus
sion. Why thefindingof the two houses
of Congress should be discredited
and attributed to unworthy motives,
indiflerence, or Incapacity while the
rcos eition by the Poosion C.erk that
he ia right and Congress wrong, is ac
cepted as the basis of fact in these
numerous vetoes, it is hard to per
ceive. Bat all ttirough. these vetoes
tbero seems to run the fallacy tbat the
power of Congress to grant pensions
ia limited to what may already be
done by the Pension OtUoe under the
general law. It is difficult to write in
that rud.mentary way upon the natuio
of ptnslona and the various grounds
of compeiiBttlon, charity ami public
policy win h ii necessary iu order to
remove this impression. It is suffi
cient to observe that the jurisdiction
of the legislative power of this gov
ernmoot is lrgr tban that of tbe
Commissioner of Pemion, and that
eoonor or later, although it may coat
the ccun'ry a prolonged and steady
etlor'.t'jis truth will bstonie apparent.
Put its mil :d bs rcmouabeied tbat in

ever, sinoerely the Southern men
might have proteased, in nrat asklna

talents of the Irith for politics and or

Parliament grow into a power con

Irish msy now pro less that they do

The First Sign
Of faffing health, whether In the form of
Klfbt Sweats and Nervouaneaa, or In
acnae of General Weariness and Lota of
Appetite, thould suggest tne me of Ayerr
Earaaparilla. Thus preparation la most
effective for giving tone and strength,
to the enfeebled system, promoting the
digestion and assimilation of food, restor
ing the ncrvoua forces to their normal
condition, and for purifying, enriching,
aud vitalizing the blood.
Ten years a.tro my benlth began to faS.
I was troubled with a dilresiug Couch,
Nlgbt Sweats, Weakness, snd Nervoua
neu. I tried varioua remedies prescribed
Ly different physic-lana, but became so
weak tbat I could not go up stiilrs with
out stopping to rest, lly fricmls recom
mended ma to try Ayer's Bursnparilla,
wbicb I did, nud I am now as henlthy and
atroug a ever. Mra. K. L. Williams,
I have, nacd Avcr's Sarsaparllla, In my
fitinlly, for Scrofula, and know, if It a
tnkmi fnithfully, tbat it will thoroughly
eradicate this terrible disease. I bave also
prescribed it aa a tonic, as well as an alter
atlve, and muat aay that I honestly believe
It to be the bent blood medicine ever
compounded. W. F. Fowler, I). D, 8.

It would bs Impossible for me to do
tcribe what I autlcrcd from Indigestion
and Headnche up to the timo I begun
taking Ayer's Sarsaparllla. I was under
tba care of varioua physicians and tried
a great many kinds of medicines, but
never obtained more than temporary re
lief. After taking Ayer's Sarenparilla for
a short time, my hecdache disappeared,
and my stomach performed V.i duties more
perfectly. To-day my health is com
pletely restored. Mary Hurley, Spring
I have been greatly benefited by tho
prompt use of Ayer's Sarsaparllla. It
tones and invigorates the system, regulates
the action of the digestive and assimilative
organs, and virilizes the blood. It Is.
without doubt, the most reliable blood
purifier yet discovered. II. D. Johnson,
