SATUBDAr MORNING:: SEPTEMBER li, ISM.
inE RECEPTION OF THE PRESI
DENTIAL PARTT IN WASHING
TOl. In thla city the busy note of preparation
for tbe reception of Preildent Jouxso.i and
hii party ii heard everywhere, and, although
in the great municipalities through which
the I'retidentlal party hare passed they hare
enjoyed banquets and illuminations exceed
ing in their richness and brilliancy an) thing
that thli city may be able to produce, they
will receive an ovation in Washington which,
for genuine enthusiasm, has not been sur
passed in their tour through the country.
And this will happen because the citizens
and residents of Washington, most of them
at least, know Annmw Johnson thoroughly.
They knew him before the war of the rebel
lion began; they knew him during the war;
knew him after the war was closed, and they
know him now.
They have seen in him no dereliction from
his principles since he became President,
and those who had become most Intimate
with him during his congressional career,
ana netore they dreamed he woald be elc
rated to the high office he holds, hate from
first to last, and all the time, placed
tbe utmost reliance upon his honesty.
firmness and sagacity. And although
ne iiis rjeen assailed by crazy or mali
cious partisans at some points along his
route with senseless or insane cries and with
demonstrations of political hatred,' he will be
greeted on his return to the capital with an
outburst of real kindness and appreciation
that will go far towards eflacwg the remem
brance of all the disgraceful vicissitudes and
fatigues of his late journey to the West.
From the various notices of meetings
prmted m our local columns it will be seen
that a great number of different organiza
tions aro making ready to turn out with
music and banners to greet The Pkemdevt,
and if the weather should be at all favorable
there will be a grand assemblage of the peo
ple en masse, to give their thousand wel
comes to their honored Chief Magistrate.
It will be necessary to scan ourcolumns this
morning in order to obtain full information
of the contemplated proceedings on the oc
casion. We only hope that the weather may
be pleasant, so that the old and young, male
and female, may have an opportunity to join
the welcome to The President, and the dis
tinguished officers who accompany him.
A REMINISCENCE OF DOUGLAS.
In the " dark days of the Republic," at the
time when President LiicoLx had decided to
issue his proclamation calling for eetent)-
live mousana troops to sustain the authority
of the Government, that good man, although
firmly resolved to meet the issue, fc.lt the
need of wise counsels, and of the strong
sympathy of all patriotic citizens. In this
hour it happened that lion. Oeorcip Abu-
mcx, of Springfield, (who presided otcr the
National Convention which nominated Mr.
Lincoln for the Presidency,) called upon
The Pre.ide.vt to confer with him ami off, r
such assistance as he might be able to ren
der. Mr. Litcour unfolded to him his plans
and expressed to him his earnest desire for
the support of the best men of the country.
Mr. AsiiniH left The President, feeling
deeply impressed with the importance of
ralljingto the aid of the Oovcrnment the
best and ablest men of all parties nho tould
be moved in that direction.
After he had retired from the White House
it occurred to him that among others, and
first of all, ho would apply to Mr. Doiula.
and he went immediately to the residence of
that great man, whose tomb has lately been
honored by ceremonials in which the highest
olhcers of thej nation participated. He rode
to Mr. Doi qlas's mansion, (it was In the
evening,) and found him engaged with set
cral gentlemen in social conversation. He
conveyed to Senator Doious an intimation
that he had something of importance to
communicate, and, as soon thereafter as wan
consistent with the rules of hospitality and
etiquette, the company was allowed to de
part, and Mr. Asumu.n unfolded his mission
He informed Mr. Doiqlas that he had just
come from Mr. Lincoln, who was in nied of
the support of eterymanwbo could gnc
help to the Government against the rebel
lion, and Mr. A. besought Doioiar to go ut
once to The Pbesidfvt and take him by the
hand and tender him all the aid he could
Mr. Doifu.AB was silent at first; he even
seemed to hesitate. (Could he bate seen
prefigured the present condition of public
affairs, when those who were hottest for the
war are most reluctant to jield to the coun
try the fruition of peace t) He did hesitate
for a time, and Mr. Ashmuv, who felt inspired
by the occasion, poured into his ear a strong
and impassioned appeal, such as one patriotic
statesman might make to another in a crisis
such as then existed. Mrs. Doi'ci.ah was
present; she became deeply interested m the
conversation, and, coming behind her hus
band's chair, she placed her bund upon his
shodldcr and said, " Do go with Mr. Ami
mik." If Mr. DouaLAi had any particle ol
hostile party feeling against his old politlcul
rival, Mr. Likcolw, it melted away, and he
BJid, deliberately and decidedly, "I II go "
'i bo two gentlemen entered Mr. Annuix'
arriuge and they druvo to Tub I'mij.idbnt'i(
House Mr. Linpoin received Doi.ui.as with
outstretched hands and with a benignant
smile, which also spoke of a relief from some
part ol his great load, as if light was break
ing in upon hun. He sat down and garo to
Mr. Doiolas his ideas of tbe situation, and
presented briefly to him his plans, saying ho
had written a proclamation calling lor sow
enty-five thousand men. Mr. Hot ui as had
become Intensely interested, and after con
templating the statements presented by Mr.
Lincour, i? W: "Seventy-fhe thousand
men U not infficient. You will need two
hundred thousand,-'1 and bo indicated upon
the maps before them the points at which he
would place the forces.
The interview wan, in short, eminently
satisfactory. Liicour and Dodolai thence
forth saw eye to eye. After they left The
riEjjpi.ir, Mr. Aiaxi'M said t "Now, In order
that this interview may produce the effects
we desire, it must be published to the
world." Mr. Doiolas assented, and they
repaired to Mr. AsiracVi toom, where
Jlr. lloi-oi.As drafted with his own hand the
dispatch which was given that night to the
Associated Tress stating that an Important
interview bad been held between President
Lixcolx and Senator Doi-oi.as. and that the
latter had given his cordial support to the war
measures inaugurated by the Oovcrnment.
It is not Tor us to qnestion lightly the past
or to speculate boldly upon the future, but
all our readers can remember with what sat
isfaction the adhesion of Docolas to Lin.
colx and the canso of the Government was
received by all loyal hearts how the "War
Democracy " at onco rushed to tho field, and
how tho secessionists who had counted so
largely opon support in tho North were
taught when too lato that party differences
in the loyal States had been buried in the
ruins of Fort Sumter.
As Docolas took his stand by Lincoln so
would ho do, were ho alive to-day, by Prcs
ident Johnson. As he gat e the power of
his Influence in favor of the whole Union
when it was assailed by southern secession,
ists, so would he now do in support of the
Union kept asunder by northern fanatics.

A few nights ago we hud occasion to
climb to the cjne of the eagle that watches

building occupied by the Metropolitan Po

one o'clock a. in when wc reached the spot,
and we found Ihe guardian of I he night in bed
in an ante-room communicating with tho
apartment where tho electric machinery of
Ihe establishment is located, and where a

T. aro9e from the touch where he had been
sleeping with onei'jc open, und insisted upon
reuumg to us an article from a newspaper
which had struck his attention. " Don't be
in a hurry," suid he ; " we'll hae an iilurm,
if jouwillbe patient.' Ho had read the
article only hulf through when " Dang 1
bang I bang I" went the gong, almost deaf

across the room, touched one or two thing

Por gurgled an answer down the tube
"Please ask City Hall If he knows what this

and Catrov reported through the tube:
"They haven't heard jet at City Hall about
the fire." The fire was extinguished by this
time, however; although, as it broke out in
frame buildings, It might have had a chance
for a great spread.
We looked with wonder upon the ma
chinery of that telegraph office, where one
man had the whole city at his finger ends

of Incalculable value. How much, reader,

The President, having been called upon
for a speech, said that time would admit of
his making only a few remarks. He ten
dered his sincere thanks fir this demonstra
tion not merely for him as an Individual,
but because he viewed it as an Indication of
the uprising of the people to rcstoro peace
and harmony to all parts of the country, and
because he would not abandon the principles
upon which he was elected and sanction the
Krccdmcn's Bureau, the civil rights and the
Montana bills, and various other measures
projected by the last Congress. It was
charged that he had turned traitor, and that
Congress were tho only simon-purcs. Ho
had exercised tho veto power in vindication
of tho rights of tho people. "There," he
said, "I have always stood, and there, If
necessary, I will perish."
Senator Cowan joined the party at this
Latrobk, Pa., 9 30 Senator Cowan ln-1
troduced tho distinguished members of tho
party. Tho President responded to a re
quest for a speech in a few words, saj Ing ho
appreciated this kind demonstration. He
had always tried to discharge his duty faith-
luiiy to the people, and that ho left in their
hands tho flag with thirty-six stars and the
Constitution, which he knew with them
would be safe.
Houqucts were presented to the President,
Oen. Urint, and Admiral Farrago! by the
ladies. A card accompanying tbe bouquet
to tho Presides said tho young .ladles who
presented it intended to make tho young
gentlemen vote for a Representative who
would sustain his administration.
When Gen. Orant the second timo op-
pcareu mi me platform the band was re
quested to cease playing, whereupon he dryly
remarked that they had better continue to
hten to the music, as they would net cr listen
to a speech from him.
At Altoona the President made a brief
response to the address, and in tendering his
thanks said he was glad to bo thus compli
mented by the people, for from that source
It was more welcome than from any other.
It was tho peoplo ho had tried to servo from
his advent into public life to tho present
time, and upon whom he would always rely
to stand by the country in every emergency.
It was the peoplo who constitute tho source
of power in this country and who, when prop
erly inlormed and lrecd from prejudice, will
settle all tho public questions. Passing
through this mountain scenery reminded him
of his own mountain home in his adopted
State. When the rights of a nation are In
vaded and liberty and freedom driven from
them, they alwajs reside longest with the
people of the mountains, and if the time shall
ever come that our frco Constitution shall be
lost, the freemen of the mountains of Penn
sjltuma will be the last to gite it up.
Ho said wo had just passed through a
bloody and expensive war; but, thank God,
the flag of the country still contains thirty,
six stars. Ho had thought the time had
come w hen we should hat e permanent peace;
but there seems to have been inaugurated a
