o'clock, and often had informal guests >'

Mrs. Madison, widow of the former Prcsi- ^
dent, was a freqtient guest and on terms w
of closest intimacy with Mrs. Polk, and p
on one occasion Mr. Heale.v, the famous 't
artist, who was in Washington painting
the President's portrait, according to the
^ diary, "requested the cabinet & myself
to go into the parlour and suffer him to
take a degguerryotype likeness of the e
whole of us in a groupe. We gratllied w
t him.? We found Mrs. Madiimn in the par- n
' lour with the ladles. Three attempts ci
were made to take the likeness of my- T
self, the cabinet & the ladies in a group, p
ail of which failed." Every
Tuesday and Friday evening the
White House was open for an informal ^
reception at k o'clock and usually ?
one hundred or more ladies and gentle- "
tnen called. "These informal reception r'
evenings are very pleasant," the Presl- ?
dent records. "Members of Congress. a
strangers and others call without cere- ?
raony and without invitation, and retire "
when they are disposed to do so. By ^
setting apart two evenings in the week 1 1

The President s portrait was painted by *1

The President notes a snowstorm which

Irs. Polk and the daughter attended one
f the evening receptions, at which the
Yeside.nt says that he paid her "marked
espect." Mr. George Bancroft endeavred
to bring them together, and carried
n invitation to dinner to the venerable
x-President. who declined to accept any
ospitallty from Mr. Polk until he had
eceived an explanation of a letter which
he latter had written for publication
onte years before to make it appear that
'resident Adams "had accepted a less
avorable boundary for the I'nited States
han he could have obtained by the Florla
treaty of 1819 and had thereby lost
'evas to the Pnited States." The Preslent
attended Mr. Adams' funeral, which
ras held in the House of Representatives,
nd which, he says, "was a splendid pagant."
He was very much pleased because Henry
lay, who had been his opponent for the
residency, called upon him and afterward
upon Mrs. Polk and invited him
? dinner. Occasionally he expresses himelf
as pleased with little attentions of
his kind, but at the same time he was
xceedlngly sensitive about slights, and

Not Interested in Frivolity.
Mr. Polk did not have a keen sense of
Pnjoyment. While he took pleasure in
what he called "polite conversation, he
aid not seek diversions, and he refers
unfavorably to a private performance by
[ferr Alexander, the juggler or performer
?f tricks of sleight of hand, who came to
the President's mansion and gave an exHbltion
before a select company. "I went
down & found some forty or fifty ladies
& gentlemen before whom Mr. Alexander
exhibited his art, greatly to their
wonder and amusement, but, as I think,
not much to their edification or profit.
It was. however, innocent in itself, but I
thought the time unprofitablv spent."
He was more interested in receiving
Mr. and Mrs. Tom Thumb, who were
presented to Mrs. Polk and himself one
afternoon after their return from Europe,
where they had been received by
Queen Victoria and other crowned heads,
.and he was greatly impressed by the
accomplishments of Laura Dewey Bridgman.
that wonderful woman who preceded
Helen Keller, and was deaf and
dumb and blind. She read a chapter
from the Bible for him. and he says:
"Altogether, it was an interesting exhibition
and impressed me sensibly with
the benevolence and great value of the
HidPflforv hv irhibVi tKocn linfnrt linota
persons could be taught to understand
and communicate their thoughts."
Occasionally Mr. Polk indulged In a
little gossip, and on the 30th of December,
1840. he tells us that Daniel Webster
and Senator Barrow were very
drunk the night before in the Senate
chamber, and "noisy and troublesome.
From all I learned, it was a most disreputable
Nevertheless, he had a sympathy for

"just recovered from a state of intoxication.
He was sober, but was pale,
his countenance haggard and his system
nervous. He applied to me to
borrow $100, and said he would return
it to me in ten days. Though I had
no idea he would do so. I had a sympathy
for him. even in his dissipation. I
had known him in his youth. & had not
the moral courage to refuse." A few
days later O'Connell committed suicide
in a Washington hotel in a fit of delirium
tremens. "It was a melancholy instance
of the effects of lntempeiance. He was
a true democrat and a sincere friend of
Smithsonian Site Controversy.
While Polk was President, In 1846, the
Smithsonian Institution was located, and
he gives us an account of the controversy
over the site. There was a great demand
among the citizens of Washington to
have It placed nearer Center market,
and real estate owners in the neighbor?

exert in the hope of improving the value
of their property. He tells us about the
laying of the corner stone by "B. B.
French, Esq'r, grand master of the Masonic
Fraternity of the D. C.," with an
address by President Dallas.
He also gives an account of the origin
and the laying of the corner stone of
the Washington Monument.
Pennsylvania made as much trouble
about the tariff in those days as now
and President Polk had an experience
similar to that of President Cleveland
when he tried to have the tariff revised.
A faction of the democratic members
talked right, but goted wrong, and he
devotes many pages in his diary to commenting
upon their inconsistencies and
selfishness. He tells of a visit he received
from a delegation of Pennsylvania
democrats which reads like a clipping
from one of the newspapers last summer.
"They expreqp great alarm," he says,
"because, if the tariff bill passed, it
would prostrate the iron and coal industries
in Pennsylvania and reduce the
democracy of that state to a minority.
They said all they wished was adequate
protection on iron and coal."
But the bill became a law and the
President rejoiced. He writes; "This
great measure of reform has been successful.
The capitalists and monopolists
have not surrendered the immense advantages
which they possess, and the
enormous profits which they derive under
the tariff of 1S42. until after a fierce and
mighty struggle. '

he to raise a panic by means of their
combined wealth so as to induce a repeal
of the act. The Pennsylvania democracy
has been placed In a false position on this
subject. Her public men have not had
the moral courage to take hold ground
and proclaim the true doctrine to her
people. Pennsylvania is essentially an
agricultural state, and as a community
cannot be interested in imposing enormous
taxes on the many for the benefit of
the few."
Selfishness of Party.
President Polk often soliloquizes over
the inconsistency and selfishness of the
members of his party In Congress. "I
am perfectly disgusted," he writes one
day, "with the want of patriotism which
seems to control the votes and course of
a portion of the democratic members. I
am resolved to do my duty to the country
and if I am not sustained by Congress
I will fearlessly appeal to the people.
There is no harmony In the democratic
party, they are cut up into factions,
each faction following their favorite
leader and looking more t,o the
presidential election of 1848 than to prln/M?l?
^ C a 1 a m,
*'i me mi tut? couiurj i nc
federalist* are always united and vote
with the minority of the democratic party
upon every administration measure. This
Is a part of their tactics."
He comments with great candor upon
the conduct of individuals. He called
John C. Calhoun "the most mischievous
man In the Senate." and explained that
"he has been dissatisfied ever since I refused
to retain him in my cabinet at
the commencement of my administration.
He is an aspirant to the presidency. I
now entertain a worse opinion of Mr.
Calhoun than I have ever done before.
He is wholly selfish & I am satisfied
that he has no patriotism. A few years
ago he was the author of nullification
& threatened to dissolve the Union on
account of the tariff. During my administration
the reduction of duties which
he desired has been obtained, and he can
no longer complain. No sooner is this
done than he selects slavery upon which
to agitate the country and blindly mounts
that topic as a hobby."
His predecessor. Martip Van Buren, he
says, "became offended with me at the
beginning of my administration because
I chose to exercise my own judgment In
the selection of my own cabinet and
would not be controlled by him and suffer
him to select it for me."
He had a very poor opinion of Senator
Breese of Illinois, who, he says, "is perhaps
the most troublesome and inveterate
seeker for office for his friends in either
house of Congress," and Simon Cameron,
who was serving his first term in the
TTrtitsw* o?i- "
vm?wu uwicn ocu?vo, lit? yO, w a man-1
aging tricky man in whom no reliance
can be placed. He professes to be a democrat,
but he has his own personal and
sinister purposes to effect & consider him
little better than a whig."
It will surprise a good many people to
learn that Stephen A. Douglas wanted
to resign his seat in the House of Representatives
and become a major in a
regiment of volunteers, and President
Polk persuaded him to give up the idea,
but really every member of Congress in
those days was Inspired with military
