In tbo courso of H'-,S'i joars tho Washington houso becamo a niuslo IVAVu "tore and a bank. Then, the pamphlet tells us, mil i ' It fell to baser uses." This phraso is not ex- Wf I j plained; It maj haob(.onio "The Sailor's Joy," ( I , and been cither a boardlnc houso or a dance aft, i I . holl. It lasted until lS.'O, when It Ttns torn f y "I down, and the only bit of It now known to exist H; I M lias been made into a chair for tho President of It H the New York Historical Society. As for tho ? tjjl Walton house, with Its lncoinporablo flory of m I "J eight windows front, "it became a tenement Bj"r ,iV nd stood in Its sb.unc until 18S1," when itfol H' Ull lowed tbo Washington house to tho limbo of ST UCi mere memory thouch wo must trust that some ll Lit body obtained and has prcsencil its door posts II j and Its chief staircase, for they wore well worth W I ' Bavinc. In 117 Cherry street tho llrst American .1 i flaeof tho present style was made "by Mrs. Hold Saftij I in her drawing room," and lllun-Inatlng cas was j54jfl J ' first ud in this country at 7 Cherry street, In 3V' J tho ho so of Samuel Irfsgctt, President of tho I Now York Gns Ucht Company. A few blocks I eastward, at tho corner of Jefferson street, stood n W tho houso of Col. Rutcers, whoro Lafayctto was '?,' entertained In splendid fashion in 1824. Somo J aay that it was at this spot that Nathan Hato t ' was haneed in 177tl,thouBh It also declared vari- ; ouslythathewashansidlnCltyHallsquaronnd f I on Bcekman Hill, at the foot of East Fifty-first J ; 1 atreet. When Wosblneton lived in Cherry V atreet tho city, the pamphlet tolls us. was a dull I nnd dirty little town. 1 hero was in it no bath- ' room, no Ico in tho summer, no omnibus. It did i i ' not contain a match or a latchkey, and nobody ' woro a mustache. Of every ono hundred i i Inhabitants, seven were slaves. Pearl street f ,i Mas so narrow that sidewalks were forbidden in L , ' i It. and It was a law that people going north " i ' ' ahould make way for people coming south. Pigs 'A 1 ill were allowed In the streets, which was perhaps ill i reasunable.inasiuuchn.it wjs also permitted ' I to throw garbago into them. There wcro di- 1 IK turbine souls, however, whose aspirations do i t'l not seem to have been satislled by the fact of the jf f ' P'fts. In 1780 the Daily Adctrtiter addressed f ff J, the High Constable. "Awake, thou sleeper," J 'fj y , It said to him. "Let us have clean ' (' V atrecta In this our peaceful seat of the j t' 'I happiest empire In the universe, so that ' V ' jl our national rulers and their supporters ml ' I mar with convenience and decency celebrato 9f hi n merry Cnrlstmis and happy New Year." For Ilk ,' ; many j cars, however, the pigs continued to do H'i; , ' nearly all the street-cleaning business. All the Mood used in store or houso In Kew YtIc was H ' , aawed and split in tho street nf'er delivery, so that Washington, on his fourteen-mile drive, H j j beheld plenty of muscular exercise. There wcro ' W jl atreet lamps In tho town, but they wero often Vt 'cft un"chted, nnd tbo inhabitants considered IR'irnri themasornamcutil rather than useful. "Too Haft' lt i many trees for health," the pamphlet says, XA' lij Provocations have their time, and In 1739 It H it' cost $ZS to plant a tree south of t'.ilh H i) nrine street. All tho footpads, nccord- J , I inn to tho New York newspapers, came H A from Philadelphia, hut this undou tedly was H J J merely the expression and protest of a small my y II i community envious or one greater.

Dana's j 1 Reminiscences j Of Lincoln, Stanton, Grant, Sherman, and I Other Great Men; of Battles; and of Great i Political Events i Will be Published Serially In I McCliire's Magazine I g Beginning with the November Number Mr. Dana's recollections of the men and events of the Civil War were completed X last spriiiir. Indeed I'ctore ,Mr Dam was taken ill in June, a considerable portion of T the work had been put in type for the mawine, and he had read and revised the proof. y J Mr. Dana was one of the lirst men called to a position of high trust in the War De- X partment by Edwin M. Stanton, and from first to last he hid the entire confidence of the T great War Secretaty. This conlidence led to his appointment to many private missions. Y J It was his reports that influenced the action of the Goernment at many critical periods. A No other man saw so many of the great battles or followed so many of the decisive cam- Y paigns. No other man hail in his memory so much of the secret history of that great T J period. X Mr. Lincoln referred to Mr. Dana as "The Eyes of the Government at the Front" lie was Assistant Secretary of War, and passed through many of the important cam- o T paigns as the reporter for Lincoln and Stanton, to give them day bv day in his despatches Y X the truth as to men, their abilities, their purposes; as to the campaigns and their develop- S menr; as to phns and stratagems. y Secretary Stanton telegraphed to Mr. Dina on June 5, 1SC13: " Your telegrams are Y J a great oblyatio.i, and are looked for with deep interest. 1 cannot flunk you as much X as I feel for the ser ice you are now rendering." Unpublished Documents and Letters g These reminiscences contain many hitherto unpublished and very Important docu- Y J ments; indeed, they are based largely upon imprinted material. O Coiiliilcntiitl I.otlci' lroni St'oretnr.v SUmton to Mr. Dnnn. Confiileiitinl lcttir Irom 31 r. Dana to Mr. Stanton, stating with startling frankness his opinion of the officers in Grant's Army before Vicksburg. Many Hundreds of Tolrfrriuns sent and received by Mr. Dana, concerning administrative affairs of the War Department. These telegrams touch on Frauds of Y S various descriptions, order the Arrctt of Spies and Traitors, investigate Blockade Kuniicr.i and 1'lots Airaiii.-st the Govcriimunt. 1 Secret liistory i t Y In private letters to his family that have never before been printed Mr. Dana gave y his view of int'ii and evt'iits from behind tin: scenes. He also described Sin important despatches to Mr. Stanton the surrender of Vicksburg, and gives in detail J what he saw of tlie capituhtion These despatches were iiiiknown in the War Y Department before the search for new matter for these reminiscences was made. $ AVhen Itichnioiul surrendered Dana went at Stanton's request to repo-t the condition of the city and to secure Confederate documents. j X His last interview with Lincoln was on April 13th, the day before the President's assassination ; and he spent the night at Lincoln's death-bed writing 5 despatches at Stanton's dictation, lie was an important witness at the trial of the i conspirators. . X There is a remaikable description of the. transfer of .Tefl'erson Davis Y from the propeller "Clyde" to Fortress Monroe, and of his first day as a prisoner. J S This letter was supposed by Mr. Dana himself to hav e been destroyed by Mr. Stanton 2 on its receipt 5 Many of his private letters to Stanton are now lirst published from the Stanton Y a Family Papers. Besides his communications oilicully with the War Department, X lie was in constant personal communication vviui ,vir. tuition, ami an ot mis material a has been at Mr Dana's disposal. Mr. Dana's Recollections of Great Men These reminiscences will include many anecdotes, characterizations of the great men 5 with whom Mr. Dana was intimately associated; a mere list ot them shows the impor- Y tance of this work as a contribution to American history and American biography. Y X Among the men with whom Mr Dana was thrown in confidential relations, in some cases for months at a time, often in the most critical periods of the Civil War, were: g President Lincoln Andrew Johnson Secretary of War Stanton Gen. W. S. Rosecraas ? Ass't Secretary of War WaUoa General G. B. Thomas Secretary, of State Seward General J. II. Wilson f $ Secrclary ol Treasury Chase General P. H. Sheridan General U. S. Grant General A. G. Burnsldn t andscoiesof men of less brilliant positions, though of the highest cinracter, and all of $ I them m coniilential relations with the Government. y I The Government Collection of Civil War Photographs numberin? more tlnn 8,000, has been generously put at the disposal of the magazine for O the illustration of these papers; and as the collcci.on has not been so arranged that it $ could be drawn upon fully until now, the illustrations will have a'niost as much novelty J $ and historical value as the papers.
