Two Interesting Interview?.
"We take the following from tho
Washington correspondent of thc
New York Herald, of the ll th instant:
rSTKKVlKW JJfiTWEEN THE PRESIDENT
AND SENATOIi SUMNER.
A rich interview took place between
the President und Senator Sumner,
on the evening after the message was
read in Congress. It Listed for
several hours. There wore three or
four persons present. Sumner is
represented aa having beer, very
nervous. Some of those present
thought he would go in:?) ti lit ?it
two or tlave different periods <-f thc
consultation. At any rate, his actions
justified thc application of the term
of being a monomaniac in regard to
the negro. Finding himself unable
to move the President, he finally
broke out ?is follows :
"Mr. President, I notice that the
white rebels down itt Alabama and
other localities in the South, are talk?
ing very strong against the Union,
and denouncing it in strong terms;
can von not do something to put .>
atop "to it?"
Th-.- President coolly replied : "I
set?, Air. Sunnier, that tito white
rebels in iSostoi; are bilking against
the fjuiojs. Can't, you put a slop to
This coufuscil tho Senator for a
shorl time, but after twisting in his
sent for a short time, he again broke
ont. ?xs follows : "Mr. Johnson, the
reports from thc South show that tuc
white rebels in almost every section
are insulting the freedmen. .Don't
you think thal Congress ought to do
something to corroe! this evil ?"
The President, with a significant
wink nt the other gentlemen p- ?eut,
repli, il : "Mr. Sumner, i notice by
the papers that tho white rebels in
Cincinnati have berni, recently insult?
ing whit? people there and knocking
down ?ne or two. Can't Congress do
something to correct that evil ?"
lt is needless to add that the stay
of th s Maisavcausetts negro monoma
ni ie ?it the White House wiis of short
duration after that thrust.
? cow:-:;: in::.:> nv TKK r*T-.V_-;iX>iJNT.
Member:; of Congress have all of a
sudden discovered that the President
has the appointing power in his
hands. They see that, with very fev.
exceptions, th' federal offiee-liolders
throughout the country, from the
Cabine'., down, are those appointed
under President Lincoln's adminis?
tration. Already there is a wonder?
ful uneasiness among the members of
the House who voted for Stevens'
resolution. This fear will cause a
gre it chance iii that body. The
p.ibliu maj look for some grand
politic,i! somersaults before the ses
sion termin?tes. In order that this
.point may bo understood I give the
points of conversation which took
place a day or two since between a
high official und a republican member.
The member referred to was boasting
how he was going to oppose the
President's policy, and that he did
not care what Mr. Johnson did.
"Stop," says the official, "aro you
sure you are independent of the
President, and eau sustain yourself at
i home if you oppose him ? Your dis
: triet is very close."
! "What has the President to do
: with my district ? The people elect
; ed me, and expect me to carry out
I their views. I represent them, not
I the President, and he can't affect me
"But," adds tho official, "how
many postmasters have you in your
"That has nothing to do with it,"
replied tho member, "they are all
friends of mine. Besides, it is al?
ways understood that the lieprescnta
i tive in Congress is entitled to those
j appointments for his friends."
"But," replied the official, "sup
. pose that the President should take
it into his head to remove all of youi
I friends and appoint men in theil
! place who were friends of his and did
i not care anything about you, what
I then would bo your position al
: home ?"
j This opened the matter in a new
I light to the enthusiastic member
j After a little hesitation he asked in ?
j tone showing that this was a nev
! phase to the question, "The Presi
I dent will not think of doing th.-t, tvil
; he ?"
"I don't know," replies the official
"what the President will do, o:
whether he hus thought of thi:
matter. I only know what I woul<
do ii I were in his place, and thu
would ba to remove every one of you
friends if you opposed the policy o
"W-e-U-well," drawled out tin
member, "I don't know but tb
President's policy is right, after all
and I thinlc T will support bim."
