James Buchanan
Continued from last week
The name of Harriet Iano is always as
sociated with that of her uncle James
Buchanan She was born in the picturesque
village of Merccrhberg la Her grand
father James Buchanan came to Amer
ica from the North of Ireland in 1TS3
and settled in Pennsylvania He married
Elizabeth Spear a woman of strong intel
lect Their eldest child was James who
became President Jane ISuchanan was
the next child She was hts companion in
childhood his favorite sister through life
She was married in lSlJ to Clliot T Lane
a merchant who carried on a lucrative
business between the East and the West
as the great highway passed through
Franklin County Haniet was the joung
tt child of Klliot Lane and Jane Buch
anan Lane Mrs Lane died when Ilar
liet wes seven years old and her father
died two years later She was left with
an ample fortune At the solicitation of
her Uncle James she accepted as it home
that of her untie The affection ho had
always borne for his sister seemed trans
ferred to her child and she sought his
guardianship in preference to any other of
her iclatives
When Harriet Lane was a simple coun
try girl in the quiet town of Lancaster
mid wandered at will over the hills and
meadow lands of her childhood home lit
tle did she anticipate a day when she
would be the companion of the mouarchs
nnd queens of the woild or the presiding
gcuins over the household of the man
chosen to be at the head of this great Na
In those days her exuberant spirits her
wild pranks often were the cause of ar
raignment before her uncle which brought
on her many a chastisement from the one
Jieart that loved her lest in all the world
In spite of all the little annoyances that
sometimes were a disturbing element in
his study he recognized in her what he
had lost in his sister a kindred spirit
and yet he did not foresee all that she was
to lie to him in after life
A characteristic story is told of her that
when a young girl she one day shocked
the staid propriety of her uncle who in

evinced by him have secured to him your
esteem ana tne general good will or your
- countrymen
I purposely delayed the answer to your
letter until I should be able to couplo with
it the announcement of the Prince of
Wales safe ictuin to his home Contrary
winds and stress of weather have much
retaided his auival but we have been
I fully compensated for the anxiety which
tins long delay lias naturally caused us by
finding him in such excellent health and
spiris and so delighted with all he has
seen mid experienced m his tracls
He cannot sulticieutly praise the gicat
c diality with uhitli he has been every-
lere greeted in jour country and the
friendly maimer in which you have re
ceded him and whilst as a mother I am
grateful for the kindness shown him I
feel impelled to express at the same tune
how deeply I Ime been touched by the
many demonstrations of affection person
ally tow aid myself which his pieseuce has
called forth
I fully reciprocate towatd jour Nation
the feelings thus made apparent and look
upon them as foiuuug an impottuut link to
connect two nations of kindled origin and
character whoe mutual -esteem and
friendship ranst unns have so mateiial
an influence upon their respective develop
ment and prosperity
The interesting and touching scene at
the grave of Ccnciil Washington to
which you allnde may be fitly taken as
the type of out present feeling and I
trust of our f unite u Jations
The Prince Consult who heartily joins
in the expressions contained in this letter
wishes to be kindly rcmeinbcied to you as
we both wish to he to Miss Lane Be
lieve me always your good friend
ThePrince also wrote the following let
Jaita March 29 1SG2
Dear Mr rBuehaiinn Permit me to re
quest that you will accent the accom
panying portrait as a slight mark of my
grateful recollections of the hospitable re
ception and agreeable isit at the White
House on the occasion of my tour through
the United States
Believe me that the cordial welcome
whieh was then vouchsafed to me by the
American people and by you as their
Chief can never be effaced from mj mem

who she had learned was in want and he portrait above alluded to in this
notwithstanding her uncles Alas alas i letter was a painting of himself by Sir
what shall I do with that child he was i Jhn Watson Gordon and scut to Mr
more proud than angry hat she had it in I Buchanan The Prince also presented
her heart to do it When r Buchanan Miss Lane with a set of engravings of the
was in the Senate Miss La- was in i i royal iamny As tnese were personal
Her vacations were spei ith gifts they are of course now in her pos
uncle and the finishing course of
education she received at the Georgetown i he Y hite House in all of its appoint
Convent She became a great favorite
with the sisters and the pupils Her Sat
urdays and her Sundays were spent with
her uncle who was then Secretary of
State When Mr Buchanan was sent as
Minister of the United States to the Court
of St James by President Pierce in 1S03
Miss Lane accompanied him and dispensed
the hospitalities of the Ministerial man
sion From this time she became publicly
identified with Mr Buchanan It was un
der the protecting hand of her uncle that
she made her entrance into English so
ciety Upon all official occasions she
ranked as wife of the Minister This
question was settled by the Queen herself
upon whom this Lancaster beauty had
made a deep impression Not only was
she a favorite of the Queen but with all
the members of the royal family This
experience was of lifelong benefit to Miss
Lane She was always coining in contact
with lord and gentry politicians and noble
She was with her nncle when he made
his visit to Ostend when the celebrated
conference jvas held which ended in the
Ostend Manifesto She traveled more
or less extensively on the continent at this
One instance more of her life in Eng
land ere she bids good by to those most
hospitable shores It was the day when
Mr Tennyson and Mr Buchanan received
the degree of Doctor of Civil Laws at the
University of Oxford The house was
packed with lords and ladies doctors pro
fessors and students
When Miss Lane entered the students
arose in a body and she was greeted with
loud cheers and murmurs of admiration
ran through the audience Our little wild
rose of Lancaster had been taken to the
Imsom of the mother country
Soon after Mr Buchanans return to
old Wheatland the news of his nomination
for the Presidency reached him When
the result of the election was known prep
arations began for the occupancy of the
White House Miss Lanes position was
perhaps more onerous nnd more crowded
with social duties than any other persons
who had filled the position for the reason
that Mr Buchanan received many otliciul
visits in the capacity of President The
oew Republic was becoming Iictter known
over the world and attracted royal scions
from over the sea
In the Summer of 18C0 the Prince of
Wales was making a tour through Canada
President Buchanan extended an invita
tion through Queen Victoria for the
Prince to visit the United States ere his
return to England The invitation was ac
cepted It was at this time that Miss
Lane did honor to her country by the
manner in which the Prince and his party
were entertained It was the first time
that an Heir Apparent to the crown of
Great Britain had touched foot upon the
soil of the lost colonies Miss Lane took
the contracted accommodations of the
White House and metamorphosed them
into suites wherein the Prince mid his
party were made very comfortable for
their five days stay It is needless to con
jecture what the subterfuges were in the
family household to make room for this
royal party but Miss Lane was equal to
tho occasion and so admirably did she or
der the Executive entertainment that it
was with regret that they turned their
backs upon the Capital tne Executive
Mansion and the charming Miss Harriet
Forty years have gone by since that
Summer time J he Nation lias grown
nnace in power in wealth and in physical
proportions but the home of the Presi
dent has not increased a cuuic loot ana
to day His Excellency would be obliged to
racnto again his own apartments if a
royal scion should grace the portals of the
Executive Mansion
The Prince enjoyed his stay with all
tho freshness of youth unfettered by the
grave affairs of state
When this great grandson of George III
etood uncovered loforo the Tomb of Wash
ington he did homage and honor to the
man who rent the empire When he
planted the tree that will shade the
cophagus that holds the ashes of Wash
ington the Great he bound tho wounds
that were made when the last of the
Kings in whpse veins flowed blood of Will
iam the Conqueror bowed the knee to the
great General of the Colonies
When the Prince arrived in England the
Queen acknowledged her gratitude at the
reception ox ner son mrougu in auiograpu
letter to President Buchanan which ran
as follows
WntDSOtt Castle Nov 10 18G0
My Good Friend Your letter of the
Cth ult has afforded mo the greatest pleas
ure containing as it docs such Kind ex
jiresstons with regard to my son and as
suring me that tho character and object
of bis visit to you and to the United
States have been fully appreciated and
that his demeanor and the feelings
men- decorations was individualized
to a dejrc never surpassed during Miss
Lanes regime
When South Carolina took the initiative
step in secession the position of Mr Buch
anan was an unenviable one and it is well
known that Miss Lane in a most dignified
manner held her position in the social
world without wavering and bore her part
of the burdens that rested so heavily upon
her uncle During the last weary months
of his Administratiou wheu he was ha
rassed on every side his patriotism
doubted in the North and without friends
in the South he always turned to Miss
Lane as the one rock on which he could
To descant upon motives of men and
weigh their characters as developed in
those days is foreign fo our purpose It is
not for us to compare the course pursued
by one party with that of another Pos
terity will draw the line between them
The virtues which have ennobled our coun
try and the errors which have disgraced
it will stand out in bold relief upon the
scroll when the pen of history traces the
images of the past in their glory and in
their decay
In the records of those days of discord
time will soften the lurid colors in the
picture and make us more forgiving to-

when another change must come into their
lives e imagine what the desolate
hearthstone must have been to Mr Buch
anan how much of the joyousness of life
passed out when Miss Lane left its por
tals anil yet she went with his blessing
on her head Mr Buchanan lived two
years later dying m 188 Mrs Johnston
and her husband ministered to -his last
wants and his dying blessing was upon
both of them
We wish we might draw the curtain
here without picturing further suffering
on the- part of our heroine Never was she
more gloriously charming than as wife
and mother She was as magnetic in her
own exquisite hospitable home in Balti
more as she had been in the courts of Eu
rope and in the Executive Mansion She
was happy in the matronly duty of train
ing her lirst born to be worthy of the name
of James Buchanan Johnston But the
greatest beieavcmcnt of lier life she had
yet to meet that of the early loss of both
her husband and son She spends many of
her Winters in Washington In her somber
robes she moves among her friends with
the same elegant gracious air as of old
but the sorrows of her heart have made
their impression American womanhood
has been lifted up by the life and exam
ple of Harriet Lane Johnston and her
fellow countrywomen who watched her
daily life when she was their representa
tive before the world and were proud of
the grand womanly characteristics that
reflected honor always upon her conntrj
ward those who differed with ns in what
we thought for the liest and highest food
of all in that day and generation
When the land was filled with discord
and passion Miss Lane was faithful to her
country and when tho hour came to lay
aside the honors of the White House she
left it carrying with her her countrys re
spect and lore
She returned to Wheatland with her
uncle sharing tho delights of his home and
enjoj ing the seclusion of n private life
which neither of them had known for
many years Soou after their return Mr
James B Lane died leaving Harriet
without brother or sister all the others
she had seen pass over after the home
was broken and she had entered into pub
lic life with her uncle Now the last fam
ily chord was snapped and she drew more
closely than ever into the companionship
of her uncle But in 180G the old home in
Wheatland was again gay with life and
happiness Friends had assembled from
over the land to witness the wedding fes
tivities of Miss Lane and Mr Henry El
liott Johnston of Baltimore Amid the
gayety the music the flowers nothing

circle outside of olllce He was true to all
his relations in life and supported and

Mr F II Morris of Cleveland O was
appointed Second Auditor Mr Morris
was a man of whom there have bnen
many in ofllcial life as well as elsewhere
who mistake harshness and suspicion for
discipline and who are eaten up with a
desire to make a record without much
nicety as to the means of doing it Ho
had previously been Third Auditor where
ins succeeded in making himself very un
popular but made a showing of n great
amount of work done though it is claimed
that a large amount of this lind to be
done over again He was transferred to
the Second Auditors olllce and again
there wcie proclamations of the amount
accomplished and again it was alleged
that this was done by skimming over and
taking the easier cases and leaving the
others to gather dust and be handled by
some future Auditor The claims arising
out of the recent Spanish war weie taken
up and disposed of to the neglect of those
of the rebellion On the strength of this
showing he made an unsuccessful effort
to be appointed Superintendent of the
Bureau of Engraving and Printing His
manners towaid the clerks were such as
caused him to be cordially disliked by
man in the olllce

caused an examination of his safe and ac

confronted with thqi charge that his ac
counts were 1000 short of which 400
was represented b these slips McDon
ald was dumfouiuUd at the disappear
ance of the remaining 000 and finally
said that he must have left the safe door
open and somebody stolen it Upon this
a charge of carelv3ncss in leaving his
safe door open wast preferred against him
He made the 000 good but was removed
from his position and subsequently given
a clerkship in the Sixth Auditors olllce
at 1400 a year Subsequently it was
claimed that tho G0O was found and re
turned to him McDonald brooded much
over the chargot of shortage in his ac
counts which was very galling to a sen
sitive man after a lifetime of absolute
honesty nnd correctness Ho also bojieved
that Morris wa still pursuing him This
so wrought upon him that he decided to
make an end to both Morris nnd himself
Ho prepared very carefully for this He
went around paid up all his small debts
visited a number of his friends closed his
accounts with the Government provided
himself with a revolver and on tho af
