CmtwiUH, 0., October 30. Captain Alfred
K. I.ee, who wwpilvate secretary to Govern
or Hayes when he was nominated, elected
and Inaugurated as president, and afterward
appolntid by Hayes as coniul-general at
Krankfort-on-tbe-Maln, is now a resident of
Ibis city, engaged in writing a history, "Four
Yean In the Field," a portion of which Is
being revised by General Hlegel, of New
York. Alter the Inauguration, Captain I.ce
was considerably about Washington, and bad
numerous private Interviews with General
Grant on political and social topics. His
attention was toda called to the statement
of George W. Child, of Philadelphia, which
lint been extensively published, !o the effect
that General Grant told Ohllds that Tilden
was elected and should have been Inaugur
ated instead nf Mr. Hayes. I.ee says.
"During the summer of IH77 I had nu
merous Interviews whh Gen. Grant, and
among the things discussed was the Haye
Tllden conlrover'y, and Grant gave me to
understand that he had reason to believe Mr.
Tilden pre poicd to come down to Washing
ton and lai sworn In as prs-ident. .Speaking
of thl', Grant said in his quiet way, but with
an expression of seriousness on his face,
which indicated that be meant every word he
said 'If Mr. Tilden had undertaken to do
that I woull have hurg him."'
Cap). I.ee says Gen. Grant told him this on
more than on" occasion, and at one time told
blm that he woull like to have Mr. Hayes
know It. During the controversy and all his
aubiequent acts and talk, and the fact that
President Grant had made thorough prepara
tions to thwart any attempt to inaugurate Mr.
Tilden illegally, he thinks conclusively dis
credits the Child's btory.
I.ee quotes General K, F, Noyes, late min
ister to France, as being tbe possessor of simi
lar information to that of his. Captain I.ee
says he has no doubt of the substantial cor
rectness ol tbe I)ccw story, and that the
sudden change in the polky of President
Johnson cannot be accounted for In any
other way. In the courie of a long Interview
he sketrbes Johnson's hatred for the aris
tocracy ol the south and thinks he bad other
reasons than political fur his intense bitter
ness. If General Grant had not stood in tbe
way he thinks I ihnon would have plunged
the country into another revolution. The
country had been rescued and Grant did not
prope that it should (lie at the bands of as
sassins or that it should be turned over to Its

As might have been expected, the order ol
the president closing the White House ngeiost
the pestiferous place-hunters creates a pro
found sensation here among the politicians.
To lay they are surprised and chagrined

dumb-founded; they are wrathy. It is as if
the president had Issued an edict binlshlng
politicians Irom the national capital and prac
tical politics from the democratic party
The proixisition Is rldit tiled audcursidin

takes the democratic breath nway. Nothing

"lis effect upon the party," declared a
Callfornlan who bas a delegation on the way,
"will be a finishing stioke of paralysis."
"It won't hurt anybody," says a southern
congressman, "the office-seekers will worry
blm just the same. It is a foolish Idea that
they can lie avoided."
"It the president don't like ollice seekers
let bim resign. I am curious to tee bow this
bloody foolishness is going to work," ejacu
lated a democrat,
"What is Orover Cleveland there for I
should like to know," inq llres a full chorus,
and so the comment ran round the hotel cor
ridors all day.
At the bite House tbe Immediate effect
was to provoke a grand rush Fortunately
tor Mr. Cleveland the probation is ehoit. Tbe
crowd that surged In on him today'ahows
what might have been, had time been allowed
In which to organlte a real boom. There are

Is believed will suffice to bringfnto Washing

of whom will expect a private audience w.th
the president, and every one of whom will,
from the nature ofjtbe case, be disappointed
It la not improbable that tbe novel rule of the
president will be considerably relaxed, at
Uast so as not to exclude senators and repre
sentatives Irom conference with him concert
ing appointments. Col. I.amont Intimated is
much today, when asked what course would
be taken when congress met.
"It tbe president can even confine Inter
views about the offices to congressmen he will
succeed in doing what none of his predecess
ors have accomplished before."
"He cannot cut tbe representatives of the
people out of a heating on all reasonable
occasions," said a member tonight." "Tbe
right of petition is es sacred as any right
under the constitution and bas never -been
denied by tbe matt daipotto rulers wi h
out revolution. I think it woull have been
wiser for him to have simply declined to
see individual delations and by closer
discrimmatitn and abbreviated time have
driven away the mob, and not to have issued
this novel manilesto. If he does not
mean to stand by it it will prove pernicious; if

Ohiuk, N J., Oct 29 General George
B. McClellan, e x-Commnnder of the army of
the United Slates, died auddenlv this morn.
Ing, at len minute pst three o'clock, from
exhaustion produced by repeated shock of
neuralgia of the heart, at bis borne on Orange
Though he bad nearly crmplcled his 5Dth
year he had preserved not only buoyant
spirits but a buoyant constitution and agility.
Therefore, when he began, about
three week ago, to have pains of
Ihe heart, neither he nor bis medical
man, Dr Seward, of Orange, nor any ol his
family regarded tbe matter aa serious. He
and everyone elu believed yesterday tbat
the troublesome malady was gone for good,
or at least tor a long time. In lhat belief the
general ordered his carriage yri'erday morn
ing, and drove to Orange, accompanied by
hi only daughter. He aaw several
gentlemen on bisine, and made an
appointment v Ub one of them tor
eleven odeck today He returned home
In excellent spirits, ate heartily at hi meal
hour and retired to rest.
About eleven o clock Ihe paint returned,
and a mes'enger on horseback waideipalched
down the hill lir Ihe doctor, wro came back
with the least possible delar When he en
tered the bedroom ol the general he found
his patient in extreme agony. The parox
yim returned wih a frequency that was
alarming, an I the homeopathic remedies,
which the r-kill of the doctor suggeated, were
no more e flicient than those which had been
supplied by the intelligent aflection of General
McClellan's wife and daughter, who hnd
ministered to him unceasingly from the first
for lour hours he suffered the most ex
cruciating agony Abiut three o'clock there
was a change The eyes of tbe patient be
gan to gr w btlgh er, ana his face that bad
been white with pain, b gan to recover its
usual rudd) hue He gate a long deep sih
ol relief, smiled fiinlly and sail, I feel eas)
now, thank God, I have pulled through
Then he sank bick upon tbe pillow as II
exhausted, closing his eyes The doctor, who
was watching his lace with extreme Bollci
tude, saw the unerring signs of approaching
collap.e, and whist ered to Mr 'McClellan,
"I fear be Is dylrg "
It was but too true VeClellan eeiae.l Mm.
self up on bis hand, half opened his eyes, and
icn uncn ueaii.
No arrangements have as yet been made
tor tbe funeral.

The death ol Gen McClellan removes another

however was not forinnHte lie i,ufi h tit
luck to be politically ippoed to Predlent
cincoin, anu tneretore did not leceive tbe
necessary support Gen. McClellan's glory
was short-livel. Grant was cer alnly not
such a mister of tbe fciente ot war. LoDg
before tbe civil war, McClellan was an exper
ienced Boldier. His soldiers loved bim, and
lime bas softened the hard things said
The article, taken as a whole, is moat eulo
gistic. Though no definite arrangements in regard
to the tuneral have been made. It probable
that the services will beheld al the Madison
Square Presbyterian church, on Monday, and
tbat the interment will be at irenton. The
family has been Hooded with messages ot
condolence Irom all parts ot this couotry,
and Irom Kurope. Gen. Hi John Porter
sa)s that though Gen. McClellan's personal
recollections were burned he succeeded in re
producing moat of them That they will be

McClellan was a capable soldier, but he was
scarcely equl to bis otportuntties He
might have left a great reputation II he had
beeneillel to a tecond place He never
aspired to first place.
