President Grant, In private conversa
tion with personal Irleuds, declares tli.it
up to the moment when General Uelk'nap
called upon him to tender hi resignation,
he did not have even tho shadow of a sus
picion of his wrongdoings. The expos
ure took the Prc.-ldeiit, as well as the
whole country, by surprise. Chicago
President Grant lias a decidedly queer
memory. It failed liiui in many Impor
tant particulars concerning tho Habeock
att.ilr, and seems to have done the panic
thing In the Helknap matter. It Is a fact
now patent to every one that .suspicious
ofllelknap's integrity are not of recent
date and that thu matter was long ago
brought to I'rcldeut Grant's knowlidgo
In such a manner that It dccrved hi at
tention. He treated the Informer
coldly and took no ttp to ascertain
the truth ot their allegations. In view
of all tho circumstance, thu claim that
Grant was ignorant up to tho uioinin
ui uspusurc, oi iiciKU.m s wrong uoiug',
will not answer.
