SKETCH OF PRESIDENT JOHNSON.-The
following sketch is furnished by a corres?
pondent of the St. Louis Iiepuhlican:
"Of erect and clastic form, about five feet
nine inches high, and well proportioned;
of compact, flexible and powerful muscle,
ho impresses thc critic as a man of almost
limitless activity and endurance, and, per?
haps, of enjoyment. Pifty years sit light
upon him; hu moyes as in his prime, and
seems never to rest. His complexion is
brunette; his hair is dark, but adorned
with dots and lines of silver; bis dark eves
are brilliant when at rest, but, when im?
passioned, are as glowing coals of fire; tho
crow-feet of years are near them, and
glasses of Brazilian pebble mark th" de?
cadence of summer light of life. His fea?
tures are positive and decided \ his expres?
sion is vivid as sunshine glancing through
crystal prisms; yet care and thought are
'chiseling their atlas on his manly face and
brow. I have heard ladies affirm him the
handsomest of our national dignitaries,
and should you ever meet him in the social
circle and converse with him, you will
doubtless endorse their opinion. Without
ostentation, his apparel is chaste and elo
?ant; without vanity, he parades no super
uoii8 ornaments of taste: neither a fop
nor a clown, yon remark him as the digni?
fied and finished gentleman in mode and
