Racine, Aug. 24, 1872. Hon. Rovordy
Johnson. Raltimoro, Md. Mi Dear Sir:
Your loiter of the lUth inst. is duly rccelv-
eu. un my way jioino irom Now Kng
land, I saw a copy of tho Now York 7Vwes
which first mado tho accusation to which
you refer. Tho 'Times' publishes tho
statomentof T. J. Connatty with cortuln
"private and confidential" pnpors.
It is not charged that 1 ovor received a
dollar from Connatty, Thoro is no pro
tonco of that. Tho tact is, 1 novor did.
Hut it is charged that 1 used my influence,
us a senator to obtain for him, or for tho
firm of Moore, Connatty & Co., a contract
from tho treasury department and permit
from tho president to purchase cotton in
tho states of Arkansas, Mlssistippl and
Louisiana; und, that having used.up' of
ficial Influenco to obtain it. I " oxuTtcd."
or took from him a promise to givo mo a
sharo of tho profits.
a ne wnoie cnargo auecting my omcini
Integrity doponda upon tho truth or fals
ity of this statement.
Tho statomont is unqualifiedly falso. In
tho mannor In which It is made, and with
tho purpose for which It is mado, it is
wickedly falso. I novor used my official
inuuence, in my wholo public liro, for a
pecuniary roward, or in tho hopo of ono,
l'ornny man, living or dead.
Fortunatoly, in this particular mattor I
am not compelled to reply on my stato
mont nlono. After a fov davs of neces
sary delay I have bocn enabled to obtain
iniorniation from the records at Washing
ton, which perjury cannot chango, and
which, independent of nny statement of
mine, shows this whole statements of Con
natty, so far as It in any manner affects
my official integrity and honornblo reputa
tion as a public man, to bo nbsolutoly false.
That information arrived by telegram this
morning, connatty says:
"I resigned my position tliero (In tho
troasury) in November, led, on uccount
of falling health. I learned about this
timo that many gentlemen had obtained
permits from the president to trndo in
cotton in tho southern states; bolloving it
was a favorablo opportunity for a largo
business operation, I applied through in
fluential frionds of mine, among whom was
tho Hon. J. R. Doolittlo, then Unltod
States senator from Wisconsin, to tho
president for such n permit. I subsequent
ly obtained tho penult, etc.
Ho says ho rosignod in November, ISO,
and nppliod for his permit about that
timo. Tho tolcgram from Washington
informs mo his permit was issued Nov. 17,
1804, nnd ho resigned Dec. 10, a month
nftor it was issued.
Ho says that ho applied after ho learned
that many had obtained permits. That
samo tolcgram Informs mo that tho first
pormits to trado in cotton wore issued on
tho 17th of Novombor, 18C4, thovory day
his permit was issued and boars date. If
there bo any truth In his statement, there
fore, ho applied for his permit on tliovcry
day it was issued Nov. 17, lMt:
Ho says ho applied for his permit
through "influential friends," "among
whom was the Hon. J. R. Doolittlo, then
United Statos senator from "Wisconsin, to
tho president foreuch pormlt." Tho samo
telegram informs mo thoro were " no
papers, " no recommendations from nny
ono, on file. Tho record shows I did not
ask for tho permit in writing.
Tho only othor wny in which I could
have aided him, would havo been by n
personal interview with tho president or
tho secretary of tho treasury, which inter
view never occurred.
Such nn interviow not only did not oc
cur, but tho following facts, known to
muny besides myself mako it impossible to
Congress udjourncd July -1, ISOi. Soon
after, I left Washlnuton nnd did not re
turn until tho re-assembling of tho senate
in December. Tho uresidontiat election
occurred tho 8th of Novomber, 1801. I
was engaged ulmost overy day in tho can
vass until tho day of tho election. Dur
ing nil tho month ot November 1 was
more than n thousand miles distnnt from
Washington nnd I did not see either tho
president or secretary from July until
December. Tho president nt that time,
Mr. Lincoln, and tho secretary of tho
treasury, Mr. Fcssondon, my personal
friends, nro both silent in their graves, or
I should not bo deprived of their further
testimony to refute tills calumny. Rut tho
record lives. Theso fuels, oven if unac

prosonce, at his suggestion, nnd with his
full nssont and approval, upon a full and
mutual understanding thnt sucli nanors

memorandum, to bo preserved for tho
privnto uso ot tho parties themselves,
My recollection of tho substance of what
occurred is this : Connatty eanio to tho
room of tho committee on Indian utl'uirs
in tho capitol. Ho thoro Informed mo of
his resignation of his clerkship, that ho
had obtulncd through tho head of tho
trensury department, a permit to purchaso
cotton under tho regulations of tho tren
sury. Ho showed mo tho permit signed
by Mr. Lincoln, nnd wanted mo to nccopt
an Interest. I told him 1 supposed there
couiu do no legal objections to mv taking
nn Interest, but I hnd no money to ad
vance, anu i wouiu not no n partner to in
cur risks or liabilities, or agrco to spotid
timo. Ho said ho did not expect to
advanco money or incur any risk himself,
boyond his traveling expenses. Ho in
tended to opernto through other narties.
1 objected that ho might becomo involved,
und if I was n partner It would Involvo
mo. Ifio conversation continued until ho
oxprcssed his desiro for mo to accept an
interest-without risk. I cannot detnil all
that conversation which took plnco eight !
years ago. Rut I know tliero was not ope
word said or purpose intended whicli, if
known to tho wholo world, would stain my
nonor as a senator or as a man. u noro
cortnlnly was no claim for official influ

Thoro was no oxaotlon from him or pro

bad no doubt of his porsonnl friendship,
or of tho sincerity of his professions. Rut
as tbo mattor might bo important, it was
mutually deemed best to prcsorvo

HOW TIIK STATK HAS VOTED FOR
HOW WILLTHKSTATE VOTE THIS
From the Portland (Me.) Correspondence or
the Chicago Tribune. J
In Mnlno, In 1801, Lincoln obtained
17,092 majority ovor McClellan, in n poll
of 100,000 votos. In tho September voto
of lb08, Chamberlain, republican, received
iu,oj. voics, nnu xuisuury. democrat,
65.-130 being a mnjorlty for tho former of
U0.-104. Tho full voto was 131,'JOO. Roth
sides put forth tho utmost efforts, and tho
question of Grant verus Seymour de
termined tho result. Genoral Chamber
lain may havo run a fow hundred votes
ahead of his party, by reason of bis great
pcrsonnl popularity; but, ns Grant ro
eolved 28,000 in November, tho llrst-incn-tionod
voto must lio admitted to havo ex
hibited vory little, if any, over tho repub
lican majority in tho state. Tho nggre
gato mujority of tho republicans, on tho
voto for congress nt tho sumo time, was
17,703 ; nnd somewhere between this nnd
Chamberlain's voto may bo assumed ns tho
republicnn majority of tho stato that
year. No ono will forget tho
offecl created by this announcement of 20,
000 majority for Chnmbcrluln. Tho De
mocracy all over tho union were ftunnod
by It, and tho moro sagacious ones read in
it tho death-knoll of their nope in tbo
Novombor contest. Mr. Jnnies G. Rlnino
wns thon, us now, tho cbalrmon of tho
Stato Republicnn Committee, tho shrowd-
csi anu most inderatlgublo party manager,
cortainly, thnt Maine can boast.
In 1800, tho voto stood. For Chamber
lain, Republicnn, G0,080; Smith, M,&02;
and Hichborn, Tomporanco, -1,700. Tho
apparent Republican majority had fallen
to 12,478; but, to this, Hichborn s veto
nil Republicans should bo added. Tho
total voto hod decreased from ini,2G0 to
04,172, a loss of over 07,000 votes. It is
obvious tiiut tiiu Republican voto had not
been drawn out. There wus no occasion
for it. As for chnnges to the Democracy,
tliero wero nono at that time.
In 1870, it was tho samo story of a light
voto. Thoro was only H8.781 votes, beinir
a loss of 32,384 on tho voto of 1608. Tho
majority for hidney Pcrfinm. Republican.
ovor Roberts, Democrat, was 0,o0G. Tho

Last year (18il), tho total voto for Gov
ernor was 100,008, or 24,357 short. Per-
nam, administration candidate, had
68,767. and Kimball, democrat, 48,120;
mujority for Perham, 10,031. There had
been no changes to tho democracy, but
they had taken advnntngo of republican
apathy to mako n quiet canvass, und got
their voto out. This was discovered just
beforo tho election by tho administration
managers, ond in season to provont n
snap-judgment being taken upon them.
It is perfectly certain, from these llgures,
thntonly tho excitement of tbo presidential
year, or tho apprehension of a cloo con
test (never imagined till now for many
years), con bring out tho full republican
strongth in Mnino. Their majority in
18C8, the lust full voto bad in tho stute
was 20,403. This year, tho presidential
oontest will swell the September vote to
tho neighborhood of 130,000, nnd tho
question now is, Will tho administration
party bo ablo to maintain their former
proud majority of 20,103. If they do,
then thoy nro justified in their incurs nt
tho liboral republican clement In Maine,
and may claim, ns they do, that, however
strong liberalism may be in tho West

George Hudson, proved n few days ago
for exactly two hundred pounds 1 Tho
testator was onco our famous Rnllwny
Klng-tlio great prototype of your Fisks
nud Goulds and hud fortunes to glvo
nwny in bis time, and guvo them that is,
for n consideration. Ho was nt ono timo
tho idol of our nobility, tho golden calf be
fore whom tiie noblest fell down nnd wor
shiped: and if his overthrow had but boon
delayed for n little longer, would rortain
ly havo himself boon mado a poor. His
house was ono of thn finest in London,
nnd his parties werocowded by tho world
of fashion, though with tho bad tnsto thnt
has ovor distinguished it, it mado itsolf
merry ovor tho vulgarities of its entor
tainor. " How did your dinnor go oil' at
Jones' ?" said n friend to Rrummel, nftor
ono occasion on which tho Reau had
stooped to dine out with somebody not in
tho Regent's " set " " Oh, tbo dinnor wns
nil very well unoxcoptionnl, indeed j only,
confound itl tho mnn had tho ussur
nnco to sit down with us himself."
In tho sumo way the great nnd the
grand who flocked to Hudson's ontortnin
meiits derided him among thomsolvcs.
Ills wifo was n grcnt joke with thorn ; sho
was, I boliovo, ignorant and vulgar, but
nt all ovonts, tho storios that wero current
nbout hor, made her out a second Mrs.Mnl
uprop. 1 especially remcmbor tho aston
ishmont sho is said to havo exprossed nt tho
proposal mado by hor children's govorn
ess thnt two globes should bo procured for
tho school room. "No miss," snld she,
" my husband may bo rich, but that is no
reason why 1 should lot him throw nwny
his nionoy on globes in duplicate." For
tho colestial globo was to her unknown
oven by namo.
Whon tho first blow of ndvorso fortune
struck this Colossus of railways theso fair
weather frionds desorted him of course, as
rats lleo from n sinking ship; whoroupon
this good lady is 6nid to havo observed,
"Ah, whon thoy seo that things nro not so
bad ns thoy seem, nnd my Georgo becomes
all right ngain, won't tlioy cry 1 Peccary I' "
Now pocenry is n pig inhabiting South
Ainorica, and It is supposed that shu did
not mean that, but something olse. If sho
meant peccavi, thoy novor cried it, for in u
fow weeks tho railroad king was dethroned
und ruined, nud It was only n fow years
back thnt a few kind-honrtcd persons sub
scribed together and prosontod him with n
sum whorowlth to purchase u small An.
nuity, upon which this once dispenser of
minium niauo sum to uvo.
