Th'e cavuse of the surprising out..
hurst of petulance of whieh this
l'rceidenmt wais guilty, on the occasioni
of his interv'iew with thei taxpayers,
has been cxplained. It appears t hat
Ilionest Johnm 15tterson, who disgi'iees
the Senatorial chair from South 'ai-o
Iia, had an interview with Grant,
just before thie taxpayers m:.'ke their
call upon that dignitary. Tdko domie
Veinoons toad lie sqatted at the
lPresident's ear, hilsaing falselfood after
fabehood, and beliinirg wih his
"enomi thie detient people of So'uthi
Carolina. Knowing wvell that for his
deeds and the crimes of his party
there diouhl be no lpalliation, and
afr'aid to meet his accusers face to
.tace, he endeavored to check mate
the-'n by exciting the angeor of the
P'resident, and thMh, rbndering him
blind to reason. In thE lie partially
succeeded, Bunt fortunatdly, tlo-ugh
Grant for a while lost control of him
self, he was finially convinced that the
whiold tale tlat had been poured into
his ear was a tissue of' falachoods,
atnd thant the people of South Caroli-'
na are willing to judgo himt entirely
by his future course towards' them.
Weare surprised th'at the President
should have suflered himsell to be
beguiled by this infamous creature,
whose whole career, from its begin.
nling in Ponn.s..a. to i:s en in
.South Carolina, has been peculiarly
obaracterized by -resoality and ratpiki
ty. If Grant por.mits ilaiself to be
gulded and infloonced by 'such sotun
drels, he deserves'evory particle 'ef
abuo that can be fieaplo upon him.
