A Washi.voto.v letler-wriler affirms
that the real object of Gen. Grant's

merely to perform tho part of a wed

says: "Old fashioned people, who
romciubcr that tho earlier presidents
were rarely absent from tho scat of gov

of congress, criticiso tho absence of the
chief magistrate from his jiost of duty."
Yes, but tho "earlier presidents," how

a re-election, observed tho proprieties

In no democratic paper in

the oppressed aud unhappy condition

from time to time, through the medium
of their southern correspondents. Fore

York 'Tribuuo' and 'Suu,' which, how

Grant's re-election to tho presi

boiug so, their pictures of tho desola

(Fro 11 Ine ll.illlinore Auiprican,
D.'slrttiu to uivo a ln.-urli'Lf on both sidci
tills matter, the correspondent of tho
Herald called this afternoon at the house
tho motlier of the child who Is the
irincipnl of tho accusers of Sir. Huston
rim mother U very much of a lady, in
both appearance and munuors, nnd U evi
dently almost Iicart-broken on account of
tho sorrow that lias bclallen tier llttlo
household. Shu could at times scarcely
peak for emotion, and was appalled when
L read to her the statement of Dr.
Huston. She regarded It as an cflort to
urusli tier nnd her poor child, and laid ho
couiu not believe it posiiblo Hint, with all
thp evtuenco Hint was nccumuluting to
prove Ills bail character in other communi
ties nonesl una christian men ami women
could much longer uphold him in endeav
unrig to utterly uostroy ucr cntui.
Buforo commencing to read tlio doctor's
statement your correspondent asked to seo
lier daughter. Sho entered the room in n
few minute, and truly may she bo called
a child both in staturo and appearance.
She scarcely looks sixteen years of age,
and has a sweet baby face, her deportment
being timid and ditlident, and not calcula
ted to Impress tho bohulder with tho truth
of tho doctor's assertion that "sho had
been cohnbltlng with men since slip was
twelve years old." Indeed, during an in
terview it wai almost dilllctilt for me to
rculizo that I was not talking to n llttlo
I road to her that portion of tho doctor's
statement, and sho insured mo thutshohad
no improper dealings with any man until
after Dr. Huston had led hor astray, and
then only under his advice. Thru ho not
only advised her, but inquired afterwards
whither sho hnd dono bo, and when tho
told him where bIio wont, ho told her sho
better no farther from homo next time.
Sho admits that sho did wrongly assert
tli it Dr. Huston lml been with hor at
other houses besides the housu of Lucy,
but thnt the wns nslinmed 11 1 lirst to own
to her mother, in her great distress, that
she had b. eu to tfioso houses with other
men. Sho says sho correctod that poition
of hor statement soon after and candidly
told tho whole truth. Her meetings with
Dr. Huston sho fiiy woro so frequent that
sliu could not cnumcrato them, and all,
with tho exception of tho two occasions at
tlie houso of laiey, woro in his parlor, or
it tlio lamlly was out, in ono ot tlio up
stairs rooms. Ho frequently told hor, hhu
sav. if sho iiot Into trouble that he was
n doctor anil could give hor medicine to
Tin. remninour ur her narrative wus
pretty much us bus til ready been published,
including Borne alleged conversations with
tho Doctor, utid ht-r whole manner is cal
culated to Impress tho listener favorably
as to her" veracity. Ono point I specially
questioned hor upon was whether tho had
ever heard ot the similar charge made by
Virginia Hopkins last November. Both
her and her mother replied that thoy had
never heard the slightest Intimation about
either hurcuso or that of hilly Mumford
until they wcro made public last week.
The mother said that hail she heard them
she would have been on hor guard, but
tho whole mutter had boen kept sacret.

Col. JuMin, ex-collector of Chicago,
ml lirnili.r.ni.liiw to Senator Sehurz,
writes to tho Chicago 'Trlbuno' from
Germany to vindicate Uib senator from
tho chargo of nepotism, brought against
him on account of his (.Mr. Jusso.l ) ap
pointment. He says: "Sonator Sehurz
neither Hskcd my appointment, nor was I
appointed bocause 1 am his brothor-ln-law.
1 inked him fur a letter of recomendation
to tho president. Ho flatly refused tho re
quest, solely upoh tho ground that
tin did noi wisn 10 iubk-
hlmsolf liable to tho charge of
nepotlim. No entreaties or representa
tions on my part could movo him from hit
mirnuso to romaln entirely neutral as re
garded m v asclrntlons to olllco." Mr. J us-
son says ho was removed becnuso he pro
rured the removal of Dr. Lumper, a gang
er, whom he had detected In trnudulently
appropriating high wlnos. " Ho boasted
that 1 would not duro to touch him, as ho
wns a cousin of President Grant, and off
ered to bet $600 that ho could not bo
touched. On the camo day, 1 reported him
lor removal, and at once revoked his as

to differ with him at to the in

peremptorily and paaitlvely refusod
his temptlnc offer. Mr. Grant'i embar
rassment hud somewhat increased when I
took mv leave. I deemed it advisable to
inform tho commissioner of Internal Reve

Senator Sehurz, immediately, of tho offer
and its result. And bore 1 must do Mr.
Orvlllo Grant thejustlco to say that after
ho had ascertained that I had reported his
proposition at headquarters and t, my
brother officers, ho called upon me nnd
volunteered tho explanation that ho had
made tho said proposition to
mo solely for tlio purpose
of "tostlnc mv Integrity." This
apology took place about six months ufter
tho "testing process." 11 is uui lair 10
presume that thobrothor ot tho President,
by his happy method of testing tlie
honesty of revenue officers, has rendcrid
valuable services to tho Government.
That he undertakes this labor In his ca
pacity as a privato citizen, without hope
of reward, and simply for the nuro pur
poso of improving tho Civil Scrvico
under tlio administration of a beloved
brother, is a truly noblo exnmplo of fra;
tomul lovo nnd oovotion.
Having recently learned thnt mnny
