A SCENE AT THE WHITE
Grant Attempts to snub Sumner
—The Tables Turned.
Tho Washington corn spoudont of
the Nov York Herald relate tho
following concerning very amu
sing scene it tho While House,
which oecurreJ on Thursday lust.
The writer Biiys :
In tho absemeof solia news items
pice nnd gissip are coptable. I
havo two little sp cy items that will
not fnil to interest your renders.
The first is about Sum nor and Grunt,
who, it rectus have hud an "un
pleasantness." The story goes that
Inst. Wednesday or Thursday, Sena
tor Sumner went to the Whito
House lo havo an interview with
President Crant. Sumner, you
know, is pompons, ond so likewise
is Dent, the important UK.her-in-ohiof
and card-rceeiver of the Exec
utive Mansion. Rut he difference
between hfumncr and Dent i just
this tho former knows how to be
pompous, but tho latter, though am
bitious to excel in that lino, is sadly
deficient in jtVility. But to the nto
ry, Sunnier arrived ut tho Whito
House, nnd of tourso pn'no.d to tho
tender hands of Dent. The latter,
on hearing tho Senator's desires to
havo a talk with the President
drew hiuisolf up in an airi.'h fashion
remarked that ho would sue what
cou'.d bo dor.o. and then disappeared
to uiinouueo Sumner's wishes to the
Executive Tycoon. WhatGranl told
Dent can only be gathered from
what Dent bald when Lc reappeared
in S iinncr's presence.
The President wishes me to asu
j on," ooservod DonL'-irlicther j our
liiisic9 wilh liim to-day laofr.u im
"1 never call to seo tho Prcf"!deiit,"
tartly respoiidod Sunnier, with a
haughty toss of the houd, ''unless I
have business of importance."
''i ho President in busi'dy cngngod.
Scimor; but I will give him your
answer.'' replied Dent.
"Do so, sir," said Sumner.
Dent disappeared ngnin for n short
time within tho door of the Execu-
tiv Office and then cumo forth look
ing very solemn.
I . .., . ,
, i no w in bco yon in ouout h ecu in
. , . .
exclaimed Dent, bowing at
tho same lime lo the Senator.
' Tell Mr. Grant," s'lontcd Sum
ner in ore of his loudest tones, "that
I on'i wait fifteen minutes for the
Emperor of the French, tho Queen
of England or any body elso. You
mayftnto also that hereafter if Jlr.
Grant wants mo he can send for me,"
and off walked the Massachusetts
Senator in a big huff. Tho samo
day, iu conversation with a friend,
Sumner whs heard to My that the
Whito IIouso was now nothing more
than a military camp. Truly Grant
in getting into hot wuter with tho
loadus of his own perty.
The Reduction of the Public
What the New York Tribune
says on iho question of tho payment
of tho public debt is so just and
pertinent that wo cannot forbear
quotirg il wilh approbation :
" Thu legal tender act expressly
requires " the purchaso or payment
of ono per ccntnm ol Iho entire debt
ot tho (.Tinted Stales, to be made
within each fiscal year after July 1,
18o'2." Is it Lot notorious that no
such "purchase or payment" has
been tnnrJo for moro thnn a vcac
past tiiat the debt Is now as large
ns it was eighteen months njro?
Why, then, if tho luw has boon sys
tomatically defied for tho eighteen
months past defied, ns we firmly
believe, for stock-gnmblmg purpo
sen should not the gojd which has
been retained in tho Treasury ia
violation of law, bo now used in
obedience to that law ? Tho law ro
rpiired the purchaso or payment of
0,000,000 of pullio debt between
Jan. 1, m.8, and July I, 18fi0. It
has not been pt u'l obeyod. Wo say
take tho gold that should have boen
used in obedienco to law, and do
now what should have beon dono
during the last eighteen months.
Why not? What rouson Is thero
lor not using tho surplus money
pay off tho publio debt, and thus
aip tho accumulation of intsi-obt?
We have for three years been py
lrg interest on not loss than SCO,
000,000 lying donl in the Treasury.
Are Wb ao rich that wo should
on aquAndcring SlO.OllO per day for
Debt. Coercing an Audience.
One of tho pools of the first em
pire, Ncpomuceuo Leraoreior, wrote
tragedy whose hero wm Christo
pher Columbus. He bad in it vio
lated tho unities which Frenchmen
for years considered an inviolable
law of tragedy, Ir. thoso days the
students were ns grout Koulols of
Aristotle's preeopt as they are now
hostile to it.
Wheu Lemercier's piece was play
ed, tho student hiwsod it with groat
vehemence. Napoleon admired Le-
nereier, and wbon lie beard the
tragedy had been hissed, ho order
ed it ta lio played auaiu. It was
hissed uguin. He becume furious.
He ordered it to bo played a thiri
limo, and went lo the theatre ac
companied by a regimont of col
dicrc. Tho first and second acta
were heard in silenco.
It was at tho third act the hisses
were most vigorous. tVbon the
enriain roso on tho third act, Na
poleon lonnod over his box and
looked at tho students to see iftli)
wold dure oppose bis known will in
his presence. What should bo see
but tho whole audience, from the
pit to tho last tior wearing night
caps and protending ta bo fust
Tho eight was o odd, Napoleon
could not help laughing, and he
gave tip attempting to support the
Debt. Coercing an Audience. Weight of Military Men.
Tho following memorandum wiut
found a number of years ago in the
pockct-boolc of an officer of the
Massachusetts lino, August 19,1783,
weighed nt tho Sculcs ut West
Gen. Washington 209 pounds, Gen.
Lincoln 223, Gen. Knox 230, Gen.
Huntington 132, Gou. Creation 1G9,
Col. Swia 219, Col. Michaol John
son 232, Col. Henry Jackson 238,
Lt. Col. Huntington 232, Lt. Col.
Cobb 1G0, Lt. Col. Humphreys 251.
It appeals from tho nbovo that
tho highest weight of thoso cloven
distinguished Revolutionary c2icers
was two hundred and eighty pounds
and the lightest, Gonerul Hunting
ton, who weighed one hundred und
thirty -two ponnds.
Number of Books in European
A learned Italian of Voronu has
published u work in which he shows
that the libraries of Italy possess a
greater number of volumes than
thoso of nny other nation in tho
world. Italy has in her libraries
(1,000,000 volumes; France, 4,389,
000; Austria, 2,500,000; Prussia, 2,
010,000; Gront Britain, 1.774.1G3;
Havana, 1,208.000; Rnssia, 8S0,(i90,
Eolgiuni, 509,100- Collections of
books uro much scattered in Italj ;
Paris has ono third ( f ull tho libra
ry books in Franco, and most of the
Euiopoan capitals nro rich in al
most as great a proportion. This is
not tho etiso in Italy. Milan has
250,000 volumes In the Brera libra
ry, aud 155,000 in the Ambrosian.
The Origin of Touching Glasses
Surely tho custom among men of
touching thoir glasses before drin
king the health of a friend (or on
other occasions merely for a ccro-
tnony a sake,) merits sorao atten
tion in regard to its aneient ori
gin. Possessing n findnoss for an
tique resoaroues, :i aiiorusau innn
ile pleasuro to communicate tho
why and whorofore oi the above-
Sevoral years antorior to tho timo
oi Bocratcs, it was given out that
any criminal condemned t die tho
death (by having the poison drink
administered) wnsnt libertj to con
sider his life insured, if be could
succeed ia prevailing npon hht
friends to shuro tho portion with
him even in such email quantities
as might provo innocuous to all ;
and Jn order to ascertain precisely
(he exactness Ct each one's allow
ance, they had recourse to tho ov-.
ery-day custom of touching glass
with glass, measuring in this man
ner their respective portions, pledg
ing the health and happinoss of the
thus liberated convict, and rejoic
incr that they bad beon rnido the.
medium through which Uis Ufa wua
When a Man Mat be Adjudged
Drunk. The Central Georgian says
that nt the recent eesslon of too
Wilkinson Superior Court, Judgo
Rolnnson dohnod what it required
la bo under the influence of liquor,
so that parties wight make no
mistake. Said bo: " It Is not no.
cossary thut a msa should be wal
lowing in a ditch, or bumping his
head against your' posts, that you
may know him to be drank; nut
whenever ho begins Jto tll tbo same
thing over twice, than, he's drunkf'
