War in America," is to be found the
following, which purports to be "Mr.

"MI. LINCOLN'S ACCOUNT OF HIS CLAN
"While in Washington city, early in
De.-emtber, 1864, the writer called on
the President with Isane N. Arnold,
me6iber of Congress from Chicagp, one
of Mr. Lincoln's most trusted personal
friends. We found him alone in the
nvom wherein the Cabinet meetings are
held, (in tho White House,) whose
windows overlook the Potomac and the
Washington monument. At the re
quest of the writer, the President relat.
ed the circumstances of his clandestine
journey between Philadelphia and
Washington. The narrative is here
given substantially in his own words,
1-I arrived at Philadolphia on the 21st.
I agreed to stop over night, and on the
following morning hoist the flag over
Independence Hall. In the evening
there was a great crowd where I receiv.
ed my friends, at the Continental Hotel.
Mr. Judd, a warmn and personal friend
from Chicago, sent for me to come to his
room. I went, and found there .lr.
Pinkerton, a skillful police detective,
also froin Chicago, who had been em
ployed.for some days in Baltimore,
watching or searching for suspicious
persons there. Pinkerton informed me
that a plan had been laid for my assassi
nation; the exact time when I expect.
ed to go through Baltimore being public.
ly known. He was well informed as to
the plan, but did not know that did con.
spirators would have pluck enough to
execue it. He urged me to go right
through with him to Washington that
night. I didn't like that I had made
an engagetnent to visit Harrisburg and
go froms there to Baltimore, and I re
solved to do so. I could not believe
there was a plot to murder me. I made
arrangements, however, with Mr. Judd
for my return to Philadelphia the next
night, if I should be convinced that
that there was danger in going through
Biltimore. I told him that if I should
meet at Harrisburg, as I had other
places, a delegation to go with me to the
next place, (then Baltimore,) I should
feel safe, and go on.
"'When I was making my way back
to my rooni, through crowds of people I
met Fredrick Seward. We went to.
gether to my room, when he told me
that lie had been sent, at the instance of
his father and General Scott, to inform
me that their detectives in Baltimore
had discovered A plot there to assassi
nate me. They knew nothing of Pink.
orrton's movements. I now believed
such a plot to be in existence.
"The next morning I raised the flag
over idependence Hall and then went
on to Harrisburg wi t Mr. Sumner,
Major (now General) Hunter, Mr. Judd,
Mr. Lamon and others. There I met
the Legislature and people, dined, and

[From the Riohmond Examiner.]
A Look at Jeff. Davis and a Talk with
We have fr6m the lips of a Virginia
gentlemen, who, within the last week,
visited Fortress Monroe, the citadel that
holds Jefferson Davis, a narrative of the
inner domestic life, of Mr. Davis, and
that of his deVoted and estimable wife,
who, through the humanity of Presi
dent Johnson, is allowed to be near him
and visit him daily. The narrative, be.
sides being interesting. is far more
truthful than the sensation stories of
Northern correspondents, whose only
stock in trade consists in imagination.
Soon after landing, and while walking
by the fort, our narrator had the plea.
sure of observing Mr. Davis. between
11 and 12 o'clock in the forenoon, tak
ing his customary walk upon the ran
parts of the fort. From that distance
he looked weak and emaciated, and used
a cane for support. His suit was the
old familiar gray, in which lie so often
appeared to the citizens of Richmond, as
his erect form strided back and forth
through Capital-square, to and from the
Pr9eidential mansion and his office in the
Custom-house. His hat was the broad.
brimmed felt, also familiar to our citi
zone, and which lie always wore in tak.
ing his rides to the lines around Rich.
Subsequently the gentleman had a
pleasant interview with Mrs. Jefferson
Davis, at the residonco of Dr. Cooper,
the Poet Sirgeon, He found Mrs. Da

and she did not seem to want for any.
thing. Her conversation was the same
that so often charmed visitors when she,
the wife of the President of a brave na.
tion struggling for their liberties, dis.
pensed the courtesies and hospitalities
of the Presidential mansion. She spoke
freely and feelingly of the health of Mr.
Davis. Though weak from long con
finement and want of change of air, his
general health, she thought, was good,
and his spirits had revived since sh had
been permitted to visit and be igh him.
Mrs. Davis spoke warmly and fre.
quently of the kindness of Dr. Cooper;
also of all the officers of the fort and
post. She was dressed i black silk, her
usual toilette in Richmond, and without!
ornament, and seemed happy in the pri.
vilege allowed her. Her youngest
daughter, Georgie, is with her, a beanti
ful little girl, with somewhat of sadness
in her eyes and face. The other chil
dren, Jeffy and an older daughter, are
in Montreal, Canada. Mrs Davis' old
dining room servant, Frederick, who
waited at the Presidential mansion, is
also with her. He says lie never in.
tends to leave her, and is exceedingly
attentive, almost anticipating her wants.
The Southern people will not forget this
faithful negro, who, though a freedman
by the result of the war, expects to re
main the trustworthy servant still.
Mrs. Davis' nurse, Mary, is also at
the fortress, in attendance upon hittle'
Georgie. She, too, is very devoted and~
attentive to the health and wants of her
mistress, by which name she yet address.

M, Drouyn do Lbuys and his Wife.
'o the EVvening Post
There is scarcely any French name
more familiar to the American public at
the present moment than that of M.
Drouyn de Lhuys. The following live.
ly sketch of his wife, which I translate
from Le Loleit of Paris; may be inter.
estin9 to your readers :
Madenoiselle Mathilde do Saint
Cricy had received that healthy and
somewhat austere education by which
old families prepared their daughters in
former times for the dnies rather than
for the pleasures which they were to en.
counter in life. It was left in those
days to the husband Jo introduce the
woman whom lie had married, to some
thing else than the bustle and responsi
bilities of married life. The bride en
tered her home as bonsekeeper. It was
for the husband to in:toduce her to the
world and its gayeties. At the pres
eut day, the child bewildered by balls
and tlheatreF, watering -places and travel,
already weary of the world and its do.
mands wakes up some fine morning in
marriage, to learn that gold pieces do
not coin themselves, that there is a bot
toi to the deepest purse, and that but
ter is at an exorbitant price.
When Madame Drouyn de Lhuys
left the great and melancholy hotel de
province, where her childhood had
slipped way, to follow her husband,
then Secretary of Legation at Madrid,
the vorld was delighted with this t
young woman, who appeared to find it
so good, so beautiful, so charming. it
was pleased with her for the keen and
gracelul joy which she showed at its
estivities ; but what the world, all the
world at least, did not know, was the
pure charity, the exq6isite kindness, the
severe economy of the young woman
with so frank and gay a laugh.
Much has been said of the fortune of
M. Drouyn do Lhuys, When lie has
been seen in circiuistinces, and at times
when he regarded hiiliself as discharging
a duty, sacrifice so e"ily the most lIt
crative poviti" *6.MAme said: "It
is not strange ; lie is so rich I"
The truth is, that this fortune would
excite a contemptuous laugh from a 1-im
ple banker. It is. besides, all invested
in real estate, which diminishes the in
come from it. But it is a settled princi
ple of M. Drouyn do Lhuys that his po

to continue the charities from M. I
Dronyn ( Tiuys, even as a private in
dividual, could not withdraw.
They are, perhaps, rarer than we
think-those graceful figures, whose
dazzling toilets and brilliant costumes 4
the newspapers publish, but whose
charity, whose domestic virtues remain
unknown when they are not slandered.
As I have mentioned the name of ono
of the greatest and most eminent
of French women, let me relate an an
ecdote which paints very well the afrec
tionate tenderness, the thoughtful care
which she shows in saving from all anx
iety, all worry, so far as it is possilble for
her to do, him whose name she is so
happy and so proud to bear.
It was during the Eastern war at the
moment of the negotiations and confer
ences in which M. Drouyn de Lhiys
played so important a part. The min
ister had just been informed that one of
his oldest7friends had been sadly wound
ed in his affeetions. At the momlent of
leavimg for the Council, he wrote hima
letter full of feeling and of friendship,
and carried it to Madame I-buya de
U.hnys, that she mght add also afo
lines in her own hand. A fter a quarter of
an hour, surprised at not seeing the mis
site returned, lhe went to his wilfe and
was astonished to find her standing be
fore a window and counterdrawing a
paper, An maktand had beeh over
