A Fine Dcsrriptiou of Andrew Johnson.
As Andrew Johnson stood Wednesday
evening before tiie soldiers and sailors anil
spoke the noble words which have found
their way to millions of readers rejoicing
the hearts of the people because it enlightens
their minds and binds them to the President
by new and stronger ties he presented a
picture very different from that which was
presented to Baldwins troubled mind. An
drew Johnson is a man of marked physique
with strong and decided characteristics. O
about the middle height, he stands compact
and linn in the vigor of mmly strength.
There is a self-assertion in his bearing which
shows a confidence in himself; inspires con
fidence in others. His physiognomy is indi
cative of a decided character : a marvellous
firmness of purpose and a powerful will. llu:
it discloses other characteristics; a deep,
searching anil inquiring mind. There a re
traces of thought in every lineament of his
countenance "lie never would be mistaken
by the most superficial observer tor a flip
pery sentimentalist; but would instinctively
be known as one who seeks out hidden cau
ses by the profoundest and most patient in
vestigation, and as one who, having formed
his opinions by such methods, would stand
firm and undaunted amid storms and com
motions that would sweep less confident
ability into an abyss of uncertainty and of
There is a keen, sagacious expression aboul
him that shows to the student of faces, he is
not a man to be taken in by specious words,
fallacious arguments or sounding rhetoric.
Flattery loses its force expended on such a
character, lie is separate and apart from
any such influences. He looks at men and
things with his reason and his judgment and
not with his imagination. He is a stern,
vigorous and original thinker. Architect o!
his fortunes, winning his position by his own
unaided strength from " those twin jailors oi
the daring heart low birth andiron fortune,'
he feels that he has a right to assert his inde
pendence and to feel his manhood strong
within him as- a sure foundation. In all his
career ; in the wonderful rise he has experi
enced from his humble sphere through even
station of public honor, until the billies
rank the world owns encircles him in its au
rust zone, he has never forgotten the people
he has never failed to sympathise with them
to enter heartily and with his whole soul
because he, understood them, into all thei
hopes and fears, their joys and sorrows. O
them, he has always been with them. A la
boring man himself, from the beginning, ai
humble mechanic at the start, untaught i
everything, save the craft by which he was t
all appearances to earn his scanty broad, li
has hewed himself out a career that is a
once the wonder, the boast and the pride o
our institutions, that can so fashion such i
man from such an unpromising start.
Mr. Johnson evinces remarkable ability n
an orator. lie stands squarely to his audi
enoe and looks them unflinchingly in the
face. He has a wonderful command of lan
guage, which is shaped in terse, strong am'
striking sentences, while his voice, clear and
sonorous, riivrs out as the sound of a clarion
Every word is enunciated with such in ark a:
distinctness it is understood the moment i!
reaches the ear. I have no doubt, from whal
I heard last night, he could address an audi
ence of fifty thousand and throw his voice t
the outermost circle of so great a multitude.
His manner is emphatic and very pleasing
accompanied with appropriate action of head
and arms and face, and with fine modulation
of the voice to suit the thought or the feeling
he is attempting to convey. The man. who
said his voice was harsh ami discordant, had
a difficulty in his o .vn sense of hearing and
no ad'-quit? appreciation of sounds. I think
the President is very much at home as a
speaker in large meetings of the people, and
I'can rea lilv understand the s;-ctvt and the
source of the power he has wielded with so
much effect among the people who have
come under his influence.
Elopement of a Whitk Woman with
a Neoho. On Monday night, the 2 1 i ist.,
savs the Somerset Dun'tant. a daughter of
Mr. William Griffith, of Jenner township, in
this county, aged about 17 years, eloped
with a full "blooded negro, black as Erebus.
Some time after night Miss Griffith slipped
out from her father's house, met the negro
on the road, according to previous arrange
ment, and the s i ne night walked to Johns
town. 18 miles distant, with a vknv of tak
ing the morning train for Ilarrisburg. where
they were to be married. Mr. Griffith, dis
covering the absence of the parties, and sus
pecting their intentions, proceeded forthwith
to Stoystown, the nearest telegraph oiiic-e,
and there telegraphed to the police at Johns
town to arrest them on their arrival, which
was accordingly done. Miss Grillith was
taken to her father's house, and the negro was,
on the 4th inst., committed to the jail of this
county to await his trial at court which will
amount simply to nothing, as it is no legal
offence, but purely n matter of taste and
smell. This negrohas heen in the employ of
Mr. Griffith for some time. During the last
winter he frequently took this daughter and
Mrs. Griffith and other female members of
the family sleigh-riding. He was on a per
fect equality with the family ate at the same
table, slept under the same roof, and enjoyed
all the rights and privileges that Mr. Griffith's
Mr. Griffith is one of the original aboli
tionists of the country, has voted that ticket
for the last 23 years to our certain knowledge
and has advocated the cause of negro equal
ity in a zealous manner. He often said be
fore his family that a " negro was plenty good
enough for a poor white girl" and similar ex
pressions showing the biasof his mind. The
daughter, having confidence in her father,
imbibed his teachings, and concluded to act
upon them. She was perfectly innocent, and
no blame should be attached to her.
General Cass. The editor of the La
crosse (Wisconsin) Democrat, who is now in
Detroit, writes as follows:
"General Cass is still alive, though his
family have gathered here in daily expecta
tion of his decease. The General is now in
his 84th year. He passes most of his time in
sleep, undisturbed. At rare intervals he wa
kens up sufPciently to ask for some of his
old friend who are sent for, but on arriving,
even within the hour, he is ncrally asleep
again. His disease is softening of the brain,
from years of mental labor in the service of
his country. He has all the care, attention
and nursing it is possible to give. His fam
ily look upon him with the greatest rever
ence and affection, and pray that his last day
on earth may be far distant. At times he is
able to converse quite freely and rationally
with his family, but this is the exception,
not the rule.
