EX-GOVERNOK AIKEN—HIS VIEWS
OF THE WAR.
Ex-Governor Aiken, of South Carolina, is
still in Washington, where he has been com
plimented by visits from residents who were
tuiuiliar with him in former times, when bo
represented a d'strict in the House of Rep
resentatives, and avowed his loyalty to the
Union. He still professes the samo senti
ments. In 185C ho was the candidate for
the Speakership of the House, but wax de.
tested by General Banks. At that time lie
was said to be the richest slaveholder in the
world. A correspondent of the Rochester
Democrat lias hart an interview with him, and
writes the following:
Mr. Aiken has none of the unctuous solid
ity of person which position is supposed to
bestow, and is the farthest remove from
those (juattlebums who have so successfully
cultivated pompous and offensive manners,
lie is live feet ten in height, perhaps, and
may weigh one hundred auil forty pounds,
llis hair and full whiskers and moustache
are very gray, but bis manners are subdued
and courteous, and bis eyes as bright as
during bis memorable contest with Ranks
fur the Speakership, when lie wasn’t elect
ed, but tnought lie was, und committed to
memory his speech of acceptance. The
Governor’s face is seamed and furrowed un
duly lor a man of sixty, and has an auxious,
vigilant, weary look.
he calls the confederates “rebels.”
QHis health was tolerable, he said, and he
hud been treated witlt marked respect ever
siuce the war began, by the rebels of ail
grades, in South Carolina, who had tolera
ted liis dissent from tlieir schemes, and now
by the 1’resideiit and Gen. Jeffries, of whose
considerate kindness lie spoke in the high
est terms, (it was noticeable that when lie
mentioned Jeff. Davis’ plotters, he said “the
rebels”—not “the Con federates.”)
“These have been lour dread I til years,”
lie went ou to say, “but 1 told tiio rebels
irom the beginning what the end would be.

HE AVoWS UNSWERVING UNION SENTIMENTS.
He said “ No, 1 have never cast my lot
with them. 1 told them they were wrong
from the first. I gave a toast for the Union
at a nullification supper in lN.'hl, ami offend
ed all my young associates, and sinco the re
bellion commenced 1 have not been to Rich
m >nd or Montgomery, and have declined of
fice from Mr. Davis lor myself and friends.
t\ ben Mr. Davis was my guest recently at
Charleston, 1 defended the Union, and scout
ed the absurd doctrine of Secession in a.
conversation with him. Since the war begun
I have never said or done a thing of which
tuy conscience accuses me as an act of dis
loyalty to the nation.”
UIS JUDGMENT OK JEFF. DAVIS.
Ho continued by saying that Davis was not
the man lor President, and never should
have been chosen, lie hid not the ability
nor the weight of character of !1 outer, and
ha 1 been very unpopular ever since hii elec
tion. South Carolinians had denounced him
without stint—but it was a position where
success was impossible. He bad not u high
opinion of Davis’ morils or dis :r«tion, but it
seemed to him incredible how a man of edu
cation ami culture, of refined taste, a mem
ber of the church who sat at Christ’s Tablo
and partook of the sanctified body ami blood
of t lie world’s Crucified Redeemer, could
possibly harbor a thought of complicity in
the assassination. He supposed President
Johnson Had good evidence, however, but
if such complicity was proved it would ma

11IK WAR ENDED.
The Governor said the war was .substan
tially over when Grant took Richmond; all
the South agreed to that. No organized
guerilla ivaifaro will be carried on. The
people of the South will not permit it. A
selfish instinct to defend themselves will
stimulate them to hunt down guerillas, lie
spoke with pride of having recently presided
at a meeting in Charleston to express to
gret and inaignntiou at me nmraer m Mr.
Lincoln. He sai l he had lost nearly all his
property in the war (some seven or eight
million dollars,) but if he saved enough lor
hi< eupport ho should nor mourn tho loss.
This is the substance of tho conversation.
It is said, though 1 did not learn it from
him, that the Governor ia brought hero
charged with aiding blockade runners. Hut
oven if ho is, is ho not far more innocent
than Robert K. Lee, who is lionized in a
quiet way at Richmond, and is not menaced
with a trial at all f
Letter from Loris Beano.—Tho follow
ing letter has been addtessed by SI. Lou's
Blanc to M r. Adams:
London, Thursday, April 27, 1865.
7i> Mr Adams, Minister of the United States
in England :
Sir : As a Frenchman, I feel hound to ex
press to you tho profound grid which 1
have felt at the news id the horrible crime
to which Mr. Lincoln has fallen the victim.
My feeliugs upon this lamentable occur
rence are, 1 atn sure, shared by all tlnse of
my countrymen resident iu Lon Ion whom 1
count among tuy friends.
We have all followed with heartfelt emo
tion tho progr.*-* of the cause which tlie il
lustrious A era ham Lincoln so powerfully

tl e increasing prosperity of the great people
which he so gloriously represented.
Accept,* ir, the assurance of my earnest
sympathies, and of my high consideration.
An American ('HAXAcvNBimc.—A European
traveler descrioes the United htates as a country
whete every man lias a newspaper ia bis pocket.’
This is a very correct national chnracteiittic,
and a f istinctive one from what any other na
tion could apply to itself. Every man in this
country has nut only n newspaper in his pocket,
but. wont is better, eveiy man knows how to
read and understand It. Newspapers have beeu
so rho pin the United Mates tnat every indi
vidual could Htfutd to taka ooe and he has bren
so lone doing this that his dady jou nai has be
come as indispensable to h m as hit daily food.
In tact, he c mid do much better without some
article of daily consumption on his table thau to
do without the daily food for hit mind which a

blest man as well posted as his more wealthy
neighbor in all matters affecting his polltiesl
social »nd tnoial good. It is the general dllfa
sion of mb lligenee among the people throngh
newspvpers-that kind of inrellgence which is
the most prsct.cal and the most useful, because
app- rtaioing to all the movemsuti of society, of
which he is u living and breathing member—that
gives such activity and earnestness to American
file, and makes every individual self-deoendent
and thoroughly conscious of his manhood.
THE fiOVEltN'llENT OF VIU'ilNIA BECOO

No matter how much obloquy baa been beeped
upon Governor I'ierpont—no matter how beta
some parties havo tried to make the public dia
trust him, he stands to-day, head and shoulder*
above any or all bis enemies.
His record at a loyal m >n and a Virginian ia
before the world «/hen the sword of rebellion
was drawn and the dark cloud of civil war rote

of rotate identity and also state government, for

Battling against all enemies, overcoming all

AN AUGUSTA KJHTOli ON PEACE.
[From the Augusta Chronicle, May I.]
As with most wars, ours has been brought to
a sudden cjDcIus on by a powerful and mighty
catastrophe. The surrender of General l.ee'a
army virtually put an. end to it. la the jndg
tn-ui of General Lee Hud General Joseph k.

failed was the In tune ot war—the result of tin
overwhelming superiority o! number* and re

All that remains is to conclude a peace which
