he would Buffer from the comparison. Con

WASHINGTON SEWS AND GOSSIP.
THE DEMOCRATIC NOMINATION FOB THE PRESI
DENCT?PENDLETON'S PROSPECTS?C Eases
"Mack," the Washington correspondent of |
the Cincinnati Commercial, writes under date
of April 20:
The endorsement of Pendleton by the Illi
nois Democratic Convention, secures his nomi
nation, at New York, beyond any reasonable
doubt, notwithstanding the efforts that are
being made :o get up a feeling in favor of Han
cock, Dix, Blair, or some other gentlemen.
There is not now, and has never been, any life
in the Hancock movement, or the Blair move
ment, "?r the Dix movement, or any other Dem
ocratic movement, except the Pendleton move
ment. Except a few who are personally inter
ested in Pendleton's defeat at New York, there
is not a Western Democrat who is not in his
favor. Something has been said recently about
nominating Mr. Chase on such a platform as
would secure the support of the Democratic
party; but I believe that idea bos been aban
doned from hick of support .Tom Mr. Cbase
himself, who is not a Presidential candidate,
though he would like very mncn to be President.
There is not the least doubt that if the
Democrats would give their support to Mr.
Chase he would carry every Northern State,
or very nearly every one. But the project is a
visionary one, viewed in the light of party ties
and party prejudices. Mr. Chase neither asks
nor expects the Democratic party to support
him, however gratified he might be to see
them do so. Nor is it mnch of a secret in
Washington that as between Grant and Wade
and Pendleton, and whoever else may be nomi
nated at New York, Mr. Chase's preferences
will not be for the former. He would be much
less human and more divine than men general
ly are in this world if he were inclined to give
His influence or his support to men who have
done their best to slander and malign him in
the exercise of his highest judicial functions,
and to bring discredit on him as a man be
cause he acted uprightly and conscientiously
as a judge. So it need not astonish any one to
find many of Mr. Chase's warmest personal
friends actively and earnestly supporting the
Democratic nominee next fall, and that nomi
nee will be Mr. Pendleton, beyond all doubt.
an objection to hancock.
Talking, a day or two ago, with a prominent
Democrat, he told me there was one objection
to Hancock, which, though unreasonable,
would have great weight among the people.
"That," ea: d ne, "is his action in tho execution
of Snrratt. Mrs. Snrratt was a Catholic, and
her execution created a great deal of feeling in
the Catholic Church. It is very true that Han
cock only obeyed orders, bnt still, in obeying
orders, he hung a woman who is now believed
to have been innocent. Even Ben Butler says
she was innocent, and called Bingham a mur
derer, almost, for prosecuting her,. You can't
go before the people and say that Hancock
only obeyed orders. They'll tell yon that be
ought to have resigned his commission before
obeying any such an order; and a great many
will refuse to vote for him because he didn't re
sign rather than hang that woman."
general sherman indignant?he will stump
the country against an unjust convic
tion of the president.
It is well known that General Sherman is in
dignant at the prospect of an unjust and par
tisan conviction of the President. He says
that, if Mr. Johnson is unjustly convicted, he
(Sherman) will appeal to the people of the
United States against the finding of tho Sen
ate ; that he will himself, if necessary, be the
standard bearer of the party opposed to such
conviction, no matter who may be the stand
ard bearer on the other side ; and that he will
agree to stomp the country on the question !
This threat, delivered with the General's ac
customed and well known vehemence of man
ner, has greatly alarmed the Radicals, and.
there was a good deal of fluttering in their
camp last evening in consequence.
was rr a ruse ?
It is well understood here that Grant and
his immediate, friends and clique are strongly
in favor of the conviction or the President.
Indeed, it is given out that, if the President
is not convicted, General Grant wiU not be a
Presidential candidate. It looks, then, as if
the ?ivings out by Grant, and even bv the
members of his family, that he is backing
down as respects the "Presidential race, are a
mere ruse, in order to insure the President's
conviction. Greeley's statement made before
the Connecticut election, that General Grant
considered the conviction of the President a
political necessity, was doubtless received
from Grant's own lips. The Radicals consider
that their triumph in the coming election is
bound up in tho conviction of the President ;
that, if conviction fail before the Senate, thev
will fail before the people. Consequentlv the
strength of the party pressure in favor of con
viction may be j idg?d of from this tact.

further disclosures of the domestic econo
mt of the white house under the lin
coln regime?interesting reminiscences.
For the amusement of our readers, we give
some additional extracts from the book of
"Mrs. Elizabeth Keckley," whilom coiored
dressmaker to Mrs. President Lincoln :
a wife's jealousy.
In 1864 the reception again commenced at
the White House. For the first two vears of
Mr. Lincoln's administration, the President se
lected a lady to join in the promenade with
him, which left Mrs. Lincoln free to choose an
escort from among the distinguished gentle
men that always surrounded her on such occa
sions. This custom at last was discontinued
by Mrs. Lincoln.
"'Lizabeth V?I was sewing in her room, and
Ahe was seated in a comfortable armchair?
'"Lizabeth, I have been thinking over s little
matter. As you are well aware, the Presid3nt,
at every reception, selects a lady to lead the
promenade with him. Now, it occurs to me
that this custom is an absurd one. On such
occasions our guests recognize the position of
the President as first of all; consequently be
takes the lead in everything; well, now, if they
recognize his position they should also recog
nize mine. I am his wife and should lead with
him. And yet he offers his arm to any other
lady in the room, making her first with him
and placing me second. The custom is an ab
surd one, and I mean to abolish it. The dig
nity that I owe to my position, as Mrs. Presi
dent, demands that I should not hesitate any
longer to act."
Mrs. Lincoln kept her word. Ever after this
she either led the promenade with the Presi
dent or the President walked alone or with a
gentlemen. The change was much remarked,
but the reason why it was mode, I believe, was
never generally known.
intrigues of the "court."
In 1864 much doubt existed in regard to the
re-election of Mr. Lincoln, and the White
House was besieged by all grades of politi
cians. Mrs. Lincoln was often blamed for
having a certain class of men around her.
"I nave an object in view, 'Lizabeth," she
said to me in reference to this matter. "In a
political canvass it is policy to cultivate every
element of strength. These men have influen?a,
and we require influence to re-elect Mr. Lin
coln. I will be clever to them till after the
election, and then, if we remain ct the White
House, I will drop every one of them and let
them know very plainly that I only made tools
of them. They are an unprincipled set, and I
don t mind a little double dealing with them."
"Does Mr. Lincoln know what your purpose
is ?" I asked.
"God ! no; he would never sanction such a
proceeding, so I keep him in the dark, and
will tell him of it when all is over. He is too
honest to take the proper care of his own in
terests, so I feel it to be my duty to electioneer
a domestic necessity confided to 'lizabeth.
Mrs. Lincoln was extremely anxious that her
husband should be re-elected President of the
United States. In endeavoring to made a dis
play becoming her exalte'" 'ion she had to
incur many expenses -a*. Lincoln's salary
was inanequate to meet them, and she was
forced to run in debt, hoping that good for
tune would favor her, and enable her to extri
cate herself from an embarrassing situation.
She bought the most expensive goods on cred
it, and in the summer of 1864 enormcus unpaid
bills stared her in the face.
"What do you think about the election, 'Liz
abeth?" she Bald to m9 one morning.
''I think that Mr. Lincoln will remain in the
White House four years longer,'I repbed,
looking up from my work.
"What makes you think so ? Somehow I
have learned to fear that he will be defeated."
"Because he has been tried and has proved
faithful to the best interests of the country.
The people of the North recognize in him an
honest man, and they are willing to confide in
him, at least until the war has been brought
to a close. The Southern people made his
election a pretext for rebellion, and now to re
place him by some one else, after years of san
guinary war, would look too much like a sur
render of the war. So Mr. Lincoln is certain
to be re-elected. He represents a principle,
and to maintain this principle the loyal people
of the loy&l States will vote for him, even if ho
had no merits to commend him."
"Your view is a plausible one, 'Lizabeth, and
your confidence gives me new hope. If he
should be defeated, I do not know what would
become of us all. To me, to bim, there is
more at Btake in this election than he dreams
"What can you mean, Mrs. Lincoln ? I do
"Simply this : I have contracted large debts,
of which he knows nothing, and which he will
be unable to pay if he is defeated."
"What are your debts, Mrs. Lincoln?"
"They consist chiefly of store bills. I owe
altogether about $27,000; the principal portion
at 8tewart's, in New York. ?ou understand,
lizabeth, that Mr. Lincoln has but little idea
of the expense of a woman's wardrobe. He
glances at my rich dresses, and is happy in
the belief that the few hundred dollars that 1
obtain from him will supply all my wants. I
must dress in costly materials. The people
scrutinize every article that I wear with critic
al curiosity. The very fact of having grown
up in the West subjects me to more searching
observation. To keep up appearances I must
have money?more than Mr. Lincoln can
spare for me. He is too honest to make a
penny outside of hi8 sal vy ; consequently I
bad, and still have, no alternative but to run
"And Mr. Lincoln does not even suspect bow
much you owe ?"
"God, no !"?this was a favorite expression
of here?"and I would not have him suspect.
If he knew that bis wife was involved to the
extent that she is, the knowledge would drive
him mad. He is so sincere and straightfor
ward himself that he is shocked by the dupli
city of others. He does not know a thing about
any debts, and I value his happiness, not to
speak of my own, too much to allow him to
know anything. This is what troubles me so
much. If he is re-elected I can keep bim in
ignorance of my affairs; but if he is defeated,
then the bills will be Bent in and he will know
all;" and something like a hysterical sob es
Mrs. Lincoln sometimes feared that the pol
iticians would get hold of the particulars of her
debts and use them in the Prseidential cam
paign against her husband, and when this
thought occurred to her she was almost crazy
with anxiety and fear.
When in one of these excited moods, ehe
would fiercely exclaim :
"The Republican politicians must pay my
debts. Hundreds of them are gettiDg im
mensely rich off the patronage of my husband,
and it is but fair that they should help me out
of my embarrassment. 1 will make a demand
of them, and when I tell them the facts they
cannot refuse to advance whatever money I re
"well xou brush mx bristles down?"
In packing, Mrs. Lincoln gave away every
thing intimately connected with the President,
as she said that ehe could not bear to be re
minded of the past. The articles were given
to those who were regarded as the warmest of
Mr. Lincoln's admirers. All of the presents
passed through my hinds. The dress Mrs.
Lincoln wore on the night of the assassination
was given to Mrs. Slade. the wife of an old and
faithful messenger. The cloak, stained with
the President's blood, was given to me, as also
was the bonnet worn on the same memorable
night. Afterwards I received the comb and
br J6h that Mr. Lincoln used during his resi
dence at the White House. With the same
comb and brush I had often combed bis bead.
When almost ready to go down to a reception,
he wonld turn to me wi h a quizzical look,
"Well, Madam Elizabeth, will you brush my
bristles do.vn to-night?"
'lizabeth quotes mrs. toodles.
There was much surprise when Mrs. Lincoln
left the White House what her fifty or six:y
boxes, not to count her score of trunks, coul-j
contain. Had the government not been so
liberal m furnishing the boxes it is possible
that there would have been less demand lor so
much transportation. The boxes were loosely
packed, and mauy of them wifh articles not
worth carrying away. 3lrs. Lincoln bad a
pas-jion for " boarding old tilings, believing,
with Toodles, that they were "handy to have
about the house."
The bonnets that she brought with her from
Springfield, in addition to every one purchaaed
during her residence in Washington, were
packed in the boxen and transported to Chi
cago. She remarked that she might find use
tor the material some day, and it was prude:;;
to look to thi future, i am sorry to say tba:
Mrs. Lincoln's, foresight in regard to the fu
tore was only confined to cast-off clothing, as
she owed atthe time of the President's death
different store bills amounting to $70,000. Mr.
Lincoln knew nothing of these bills, and the
only happy feature of bis assassination was
that he died in ignorance of them. Had he
known to what extent his wife was involved
the fact would have embittered the only ploas
ant moments of his life. I disclose this secret
in regard to Mrs. Lincoln's debts, in order to
explain whv she should subsequently have
labored under pecuniary embarrassment.
Bishop Beckwith.?The people of the Dio
cese of Georgia are not backward in extending
hospitality and a generous welcome to Bishop
Beckwith, whose pleasing manners have so
quickly endeared him to his people. A fine
residence and an addition of two thousand
dollars to his regular salary has been tendered
him by the Episcopalians of Savannah, on con
dition of his making their city his home. At
Atlanta it is proposed to purchase the "Lyon
House," a magnificent dwelling, to be pre
sented to the bishop, on the same condition as
above. In Augusta two beautiful suburban
residences have been tendered the bishop to
select from, provided he will make his home
there, and at Athens the "Chase Residence"
has been bargained for, with the same view.

Death has taken from us one whoso life has been
spent in doing good ; a hand is cold which has fer
years been active in dispensing charity; a heart is
stilled which never throbbed but with lore and sym
pathy for his kind. Our late Brother, Past Master
and Secretary, SAMUEL VALENTINE, has been
gathered to his Fathers; his place In the world and
in this Lodge is felt to be vacant. As in the world
he served his fellow-man with alacrity and zeal, so
in this Lodge, whether as Master or member, his
soul was in his work, and he labored as an honest,
zealous workman in the cause of Masonry. He
loved Masonry because the universality of the
charity it teaches and dispenses so well accorded
with bis own philanthropy. It was this love which
induced him in his old age, but a few months ago,
to become our Secretary. He desired no higher
office. Such be had filled. Bis ambition was to do
good, and to be useful. A perfect Mason, he carried
out the tenet* of the Order. Believing firmly in the
resurrection of the dead and final responsibility of
man to God, he prepared himself in this life, by the
constant practice ot charity, for admission to that
Lodge eternal not built by bumaii hand, over which
the Great Architect presides. He is dead, leaving
behind a .memory of kiiid acts and virtuous deeds,
transmitting as a legacy te Iii? family the thousand
blessings of the poor whose sufferings be alleviated,
and of the needy whote wants he supplied.

J9S- CIRCULAR,?TCI THE LADLES OF
THE VARIOUS CHUBCHES TN THE CITY OF
CHARLESTON.?We, the Officers and Members ol
the Young Men's Christian Association of Charles
ton, would take this mefhed of respectfully appeal
ing to yon for assistance. Te propose holding
A FLORAL FESTIVAL OR FAIR,
during the latter part of tie coming month of May,
hoping we may thereby rethze a sufficient amount
to enable us to continue during the present year the
various religious and chiritable works which we
have commenced, and thuu far carried on with great
success, but which we must necessarily but reluc
tantly abandon, unless w ; derive aid from some
source. The plan ot a Festival or Fair, during the
season of flowers, has eugrcsted itself to our minds,
and we feel assured that it. only requires your assis
tance to make it a complete success.
We propose that the ladi>s of each church prepare
one table or booth, supplying the same with such ar
ticles lor sale as their own good judgment may sug
gest, believing that a generous emulation thus en
gendered, as to which shah best succeed, will, when
all are combined in one collection, present a most
elegant and complete display; and, furthermore, that
each table remain under ti.o control of the ladies who
prepared It, in order that at the close of the Fair it
may be Been which has succeeded best in the enter
prise, and thereby contributed the largest amount
towards the cause in whtc a we are all so interested.
We, therefore, respect filly call upon the ladies
composing the various congregations of all evangeli
cal denominations in thi i city, to combine among
themselves, and commence at once the preparation
of such ai tides as their own fancy and Judgment
may dictate. Let all assist, the humblest as well as
the wealthiest, and with united energies carry out
The members of the A ?Delation will, one and oil,
cheerfully perform all a ad every labor that may be
required of them, and wi.l hold themselves always In
readiness to obey every r ;qaes .
Those ladies who are willing to assist ns are re
quested to meet every Friday AJternom at Five
o'clock, in the rooms oi tbc Association (in King
street over Messrs. Fog j?tie & StillmaN'S Store),
to confer with each othei and the officers of the As
sociation, and perfect su.:h arrangements as may be
come necessary in can ylng out the plan suggested
to a successful termination.
