WASHINGTON, February 25.- The
reception at the White House, last
night, was remarkable for the un?
usual crowd, absence of radical of?
ficials and the presence of foreign
representatives. Despatches of en?
couragement to both parties continue
to come in. The radicals in several
localities have fired 50 to . 100 guns
in honor of tho House resolutions.
A special despatch sent Northward,
says that Grant, in a conversation
with Wilson, said the officers of the
army are a unit in support of Con?
gress. Not more than a dozen out of
2,500, would obey an order from the
President, unless it came throngh
him/ On reading the despatch from
Thomas, declining the Brevet, Grant
remarked, "Just what I expected
from Thomas-he is a good soldier."
The Administration abandoned the
?qtto warranio against Stanton, as pro?
ceedings against Thomas, to-morrow,
will cover the ground.
The Cabinet met at noon. All
present except Thomas. Stanton
still holds the*War Office and orders
his subordinates to communicate no?
