TVAllllTOlUAL VOIATWS.
Tliranvcrnoriililii of Washington Tor
, ill ory Wanted by tho Democrat.
Many of tho residents of tho remotest
Territories nro still In Washington, nnd
whilst nil nro not seeking offices for them
selves, they nro nevertheless much Inter
ested in having tho Republicans deposed
and their own Democratic friends Installed.
Among the pilgrims from tho West nro sov
cral cltlicns of Washington Territory.
Their chief nlm Is to havo Governor Wat
son C. Snulrc removed, nnd thoynro doing
till In their power to swing his official scalp
upon their belts. Tho slow progress
they nro making, though, is exasperating,
v, hen they think of tho thousands of miles
between the Capital nnd tho Territory In
which they llronnd of how long they havo
been hovering around tho Wlilto llouse and
tho Departments.
Asldofrom tho fact that thoy contldor
Governor Snulro on "offcnslvo partisan"
who ought to bo turned out on general prin
ciples, they contend that ho has not given
satisfaction ns nn official. Within tho" past
few days they havo learned hero In Wash
ington that tho Governor had a largo num
ber of copies of his report printed, and thcro
Is a dispute nbout tho payment of tho print
ing bills. Indeed, thoy allego that Gover
nor Squlro has refused to pay ncousldorahlo
balance duo. Thoy object to his having had
tho work done hero In tho first place, anil
thoy nrguo that ho Is well oft financially
and llicro Is no oxcuso for his failure to
pay. Thlselinrgo will bo udded toothers
they havo against him.
Governor Squire is u political protozo of
Senator Warner .Miller of Now York. Ho
was appointed Governorof tho Territory by
Mr. Hayes, who removed Governor Nowcll,
n former Governor of New Jersey. Squire,
It Is alleged, went out to Washington Terri
tory to grow up with tho country, and with
tho nlm of becoming n United States Sena
tor when tho Territory shall havo been
admitted Into tho Union of Stntos. Tho
Democrats are as ambitious as ho Is, nnd
now that their party Is In power hero thoy
wnnt to make tho best of their opportuni
ties. They havo n long list of olllces thoy
would llko to havo niled at once. This Is
true, nlso, ns regards tho delegations from
tho other Territories. Tho postoffices thoy
especially want filled with Democrats, but
tho powers here nro moving along so slowly
that tho pilgrims nro becomlug weary and
elckntheait.

Tho original Intention of tho young people

qulto n company of tho relatives nnd Balti
more friends of Mr. l'adclford, but nono of
his Immediate relatives, his brother nnd
slotcr belug abroad, and his mother being

mother's Illness nnd tho necessity of Mr.
Pndclford's accompanying her to Europe
that tho wedding took plaeo so hurriedly.
Tho brldo looked evcu moro bc.iutlfnl

ANDY JOHNSON AGAIN.
What -Is Thought Here of Mr.
Depow's Open Letter.
A PALPABLE INJUSTICE.
Chllk'lMiii or tho r.rltor by tho I.nto
I'rusldcnt's I'rlvntn hucrvtnrlon.
DINNER-TAULE BOSH.
Colonel Wni, G. Jtooro, who oc
cupied1 tliu position of prlvnto secretary
to President Johnson, wm found busy
nt IiIh desk In tho National Metropoli
tan. Hnnk-tlils morning and Interrogated
ns to his views of tho disclosures' by
Mr. Cliauncoy Dopow of an nllegcil
dinner table conversation with General1
Grant.
The genial Colonel said ho could not find
llnio to go thoroughly Into tho subject, but
did not hcsltato In saying that somo of tho
statements appeared to bo Incredible nnd
ridiculous. Ills attontlon was specially
called to tho statement that President John
son endeavored to compel General Grant to
go on a mission to .Mexico with n view to
keeping him nwny from Washington nt the
tlnio Congress assembled.
"I hnvo nnoto-hook full of memoranda
nbout that Mexican trip," ho replied, pull
ing nllttlo book of stenographic notes from
his pocket. "It shows that President John-'
son assured General Grant that whllo tho
prestige of his presenco on tho trip to
Moxlco was desired, It would bo so arranged
ns to permit his return beforo Couirrcss
met."
Tho only other feature of tho Depcw
reminiscence that appeared to bo strikingly,
new wns ns to tho prominent part which
President Johnson's desire to carry favor
with tho Southern aristocracy played In lit
courso In dealing with tho defeated leaders.
"I cannot conceive of any foundation for
theso statements," Colonel .Moore replied.
"Thcro never was n man In public llfo who
attached less Importance to aristocracy or
was In moro perfect sympathy' with tho
people President JOlmion was essentially
a man of tho people, and acted with them.
Ho did not curry favor with Southern aris
tocracy at nny time, and I cannot rcmombor
that Southern aristocrats were over con
spicuous nt tho Wlilto House. 1 do not
think that any of tho first families of the
South associated with President Johnson
during his administration who would not
havo clono so before. I regard nearly nil
thCMi statements ns unjust to President
JohiiFon nud contrary to my cxpcrlcueo and
knowledge of him."
Mil. w. w. w.uidknM statcmdxt,
Mr. W. W. Warden, who was tho as
sistant prlvato secretary of President John
son, was seen at his rcsldenco, No. 2207
Pennsylvania avenue, by n Ciuno represen
tative. He had read Mr. Depow's state
ment and had been recalling to mind many
of tho stirring events alluded to. .Mr.
Warden had tho closest and most confi
dential relations with Mr. Johnson, and
what ho says, therefore, In connection
with tho matter brought up by Mr.
Depcw, Is of general public Interest.
"I nm Inclined to think," substantially
6ald Mr. Warden, "that Mr. Depew has
f;lvcu color to tho statements mado to him
ly General Grant. I do not mean that It
was Intentionally done. You must remem
ber that tho conversation with General
Giant took plaeo several years ago, ntn
long nnd tedious dinner party Iu Now
York, and you know what that means.
There Is no question that -Mr. Johnson said
that treason should bo mado odious; and at
that tlnio thcro was a great clamor In the
country to mako oxaiuplosof those who
were regarded ns tho, arch-rebels, or con
spirators, commencing with Jefferson Davis
nud going down; but I do not hollevo that
Mr. Johnson wanted to go as far as this
statement of Mr. Depow's would Indicate
was his Intention. There was tho greatest
excitement, ot course, Just after the nssas
slnatlon of Lincoln, and delegations' camo
hero from many of tho States, headed Iu
eomo Instances by tho war governors, In
cluding Governor Hrough of Ohio, and
Morton ot Indiana. Mrs. Lincoln did not
leave tho Whlto House until somo tlnio
after tho funeral of her husband, and Presi
dent Johnson, of course, did not tako up
quarteis Iu the Whlto House until after
sho had vacated. Rooms in tho Treasury
had been lit tot up for him, nud It wns
thcro that ho received tho delegations that
called upon him. There wero somo stormy
scenes, necessarily.
"Mr. Depcw states that Mr. Johnson
hated nnd despised tho arlstucrney of tho
South, mid that was tho reason he wanted
to wreak vengeance upon tho loading
rebels. Mr. Johnson In his younger days
was much opposed to tho class referred to
In the South. Rut I think that his malurer
views changed In this particular. Then,
when ho hecamo President ho realized that
ho was Inn most trying position. Ho was
no lawyer, you know, and ho was nt a I03S
at times to Interpret plainly hisdutlcs under
tho Constitution; but when ho realized
what ho considered his duty under
tho laws nnd under tho Constitution, ho did
what ho thought best for tho Interests of
the vtholo country. Mr. Johnson did not
havo any conferences with General Grant.
'Unit la a mistake, so far us the leading
mattci s Iu question wcro concerned. This
wanting General Grunt to go to Mexico wm
an entirely different matter."
On calling Mr. Warden's attention to tho
letter of Colonel Fred Grant substantiating
the statements of Mr. Depew, tho former
smiled and said : "Colonel Grant is lino
authority, wo nil know."
