uanng the morning yesterday there were
many visitors at tho President's House, and
quite a number succeeded In reaching Gen.
Grant and shaking hands with him before
loe boar of twelve, after which time ho re
eclred a few distinguished visitors In his
private office before the arrival or the Cab
inet officers. Arooog the visitors who called
were Senators Doollttle, Dixon and Hender
son. The latter, however, came t-w late.
and failed to obtain an Interview. Gen. John
Cochrane, Mr. C. A. Dana and other also
arrived too late. Secretaries Washburae and
Schoflcldand Postmaster General Creswell
were present at the Cabinet meeting. Tho
other Departments were represented by Act
log Secretaries Hartley, Faxon and Otto and
Acting Attorney General Ashton. The Utter
gentlemen were Informed that the meeting
would simply be an Informal ouo, and tbey
remained uut a short time.
The members of the new Cabinet remained
however until after one o'clock, Secretary
Borle coming In Just at the dose, remaining
but a few minutes. During tho session of
tho Cabinet, and up to 3 o'clock, a crowd
was continually passing, viewing the rooms,
being admitted Into tho Last room, and
passing through the Green, Blue aud Red
rooms and back to tho main entrance hall.
Quite a number of Individuals attempted to
gain admission to the President, but failed.
Tho President has established a regula
tion requiring all business to pass through
the hands of Geo. Dent before It reaches
him, which relieves him of a vast amount of
useless labor. Xot withstanding tho recent
order a largo uumber of applications, with
which ho might hare been bored, wcro left
with Gen. Dent, and will probably only
reach the President when forwarded through
the proper bureaus.
At 3 o'clock tho President received three
delegations composed of cltliens of Tennes
see, Texas and Alabama.
The Tennessee delegation were presented
by Gen. Dent. The chairman stated that
they wcro a few of the citizens representing
all scctl Is of the State, and that they had
committed their views in regard to the man
ner In which the Administration should be
conducted to paper, and with tho consent of
the President he would proceed to read them,
drawing from his pocket a ponderous docu
ment. Gene ml Grant said ho would prefer tho
manuscript, as then he would not be com
pelled to trust any portion of It to memory.
The manuscript was handed over, and tho
Tenncssccans made room for tho Texas dele
gation, who In a few words expressed their
satisfaction npou tho return of Shcrldau to
tho Fifth Military District, and spoko of the
suucrings ortho lo)al pcoplo In their 8tate,
They also expressed the hope that they might
nave a not tier interview with tho President
who replied that it could bo had almost any

He said they wcro a number or the loyal
pcoplo of Alabama from oil imrts or tho
State, who, being at Washington, desired to
call upon the Prcstdcut and congratulate
him upon his election to the high position
which he now hold. He did not proposo to
