verbatim report of ex-President Johnson's
speech at the serenade given him In Wash
ington, on the evening of the 23d inst.
There has been some disappointment that
Ihejfmado no reference to the Holt-Surratt
matter. The Washington correspondent of
the Now York Tribune wrote, Oct. 23, the
evening on which the ex Prosident spoke,
as folio vrs;
Ex-Pesident Johnson decided tome
lime azo that if he was called upon to make
a speech while in this city ho would not re
fer to the question of veracity between him--rself
and Judge Advocate-General Holt, on
the subject of the commutation of the sen
tence of Mrs. Surratt. There is
reason for believing however, that
lie has carefully prepared an
answer to the recently published pamphlet
of Judge Holt, wherein the latter shows '
that Mr. Johnson was shown the recom
mendation to clemency of five members of
lln court-martial which convicted Mrs.
Surratt. This answer, it is undeistood, is
bow being put in typo here, and will bo
Jkgiveo.to the public before Mr. Johnson
:-leaves the city. His statement, of course,
will be of a negative character, since it is
claimed by Judge Holt that when ho sub
mitted the recommendation of the. five
membera'of tho court to Mr. Johnson there
was no third party In the room."
The i.. Washington correspondent of the

that tbfi President's version of the matter

We have -many-. Instances in the'Sou"".h in
illastratiqnothe factythat "the whirligig
of time brings his revenges." One of the
latest comes from Baltimore. "On the 13th
of September, twelve years sgo,"says the
Now Tork TForic?, "at dead of night, a
number of tho most eminent and law
abiding citizens of Baltimore were arrested
by military force, without oath or warrant,
audlmrried to a military prison flrst to
Fort McHenry, then to Fort' Lafayette, and
finally to Port- Varren. There they re
mained immured for fourteen months, no
charge" "vfhlcH they ' coukT "answer being
preferred acainst them, and were dis
why thejrwere Imprisoned. Counsel were
denied them. Tne wrifeof habeas corpus,
duly issued by a Federal jude, was defied
or declared to bo suspanded four hundred
miles from tha outer edge of war.To this
winton outrago'theso gentlemen submitted
not without protest, but with no such exhi
bitioner natural petulance as often tabes
away from the dignity of suffering. They
simply 'felt wonder that in'a land 'claiming
to be free and governed by law such things
could be. Twelve years have "now elapsed.
Ssvoral of these victims have dropped into
the grave,- hurried thither by their sufferings
and privations In undeserved Imprisonment.
Some still live, and it is pleasant to see how
they are one aud all beloved and cherished
in the commnnity to which they belong and
on which their puro and bright characters
shod so much honor. Ono of them, Mr.
Scott, died the other day, having been for
many years, first by Executive appointment
and afterwards by popular election, Chief
Judgo of tho Baltimore Supreme Court.
To the vacant place now succeeds another,
Mr. .George- William Brown, one of the
most eminent members of the Maryland
bar. Thus is Democratic Maryland true to
her 'own honored sons, aud thus 13 justice
dono by popular acclaim to tho victims of
arbitrary persecution. Every man, dead or
living, who had to do with the tdark out
rage of September, 1861, has passed away
Into obscurity or disgrace." Attbo election
on the 22d inst. Judgo Brown received
34,481 votes out of the 35,403 cast. This
is a compliment to the Democratic candi
date of which he and his friends may well
be nroud. '-..-"
Tiie Carlinville (111.) Democrat, long
the organ of the Republican party of Ma
coupin county, has abandoned the support
of the Republican county ticket and has
raised the farmers' ticket. Many other Re
publican county papers iu the West are
taking the same cours?.
The Pittsburgh Commercial, a Republi
can organ, which has been proclaiming as
gustily as any of the "Independent" journals,
that tho Democratic party was dead acd
buried, has recently awoke to the terrible
realization that it is alive and kicking. It
says particularly with reference to Ohio:
"Tho result will undoubtedly be in
terpreted as showing that Thurman was
right, and that the Democratic organization
Is strong enough and vigorous enough to he
maintained. The country will be
divided, politically, as heretofore, into two
parties, tnoltepublican and the Democrat
ic, and those who want to earn, their spurs
as knights must fight in the lists, under the
banners of one or the other of those organ
Tho "Independents" will not thank tho
Commercial for that.
