Friends. Ex-President Johnson, His Views
Friends. Ex-President Johnson, His Views on the State of the Country and
i Ex President Johnson reviiiited tha Fed
end Caoitol last week. and hia vtatt ia no
tioed aa being' the first instance in which
an American President has been to Wash'
lngton after having left the executive chair
since the time of John Quincy Adams.
Air. Johnsoa'a omect.was to. attend : ine
commencement of Georgetown College
which his only remaining son Is a student.
The ex President is described as "looking
quite fresh and hearty."
A Herald, reporter made a call - on Mr.
Johnson and obtained from htm his opin
ion concerning , President Grant, and the
state of the country. Of the latter 51 r.
Johnson, said : . .
' "Well, I think we are tending to des
potism or anarchy, . unless a proper direc
tion is given, to the disorderly elements at
work. We. are threatened with an aris
tocracy of bondholders. A moneyed aris
tocracy, they say, is the most detestable
but a credit aristocracy, which is only the
shadow '-of the substitute ior money.
worse still ; for it is the moneyed aristoc
racy tli u ted and adulterated. I say the
bondholder ii a credit -aristocrat. Here is
the producer,; raising his; 'wheat or his
com. What is it 'worth, to him T lie
sells it for the Credit of the bondholder.
The bondholder gives hia credit to the pro
ducer in exchange- for the ' latter a goods.
and says, J "Yon may take our credit but
we- will - pot the"rold and Bilver into our
pockets and ' take your produce also."
When by and by the producer-finds the
credit valueless, what will he be worth I
When the great revulsion comes, what will
re our condition 1 Where is all the gold
and surer, that has been dus from our own
soil and coined in our own mines t - Where
is H all gone r Can you tell me, sir t
don't speak of such as we imported, but
what we coined ourselves that vast amt
dug out of our own earth. Why, it is lock
ed up in the vaults or the credit aristocracy.
Now, sir, it 'id a -singular thing that no
country has ever yet paid on a great na
uonal debt without repudiation.: It may
startle you to hear it, but it ia true. .'.Look
over history and tou will find I am right,:
and wherever : you will fiaaLa-. permaneat
national debt, - one -that has--sot beentMtid
off, yoa will find there is no- freedom. '
Spain is not free, France is not free, Rus
sia is not free. England is not free, because
each of .-those countries has', a permanent
national debt.; It Is in the nature of things
for wherever, there are power and moneyed
aristocracy; there ia always a desire for un
ion between the . two. - Here we ; fiaye an
executive power controlled ,by the bond-'
holders, . Grant is controlled by a misera
ble set of hucksters and bondholders. He
is in their hands completely, and therefore
we are in danger.- -The country is in peril
tor the. bondholders are struggling to rule
the government. - The people' ought- to be
made to -understand this condition. The
people need to be indoctrinated with the
truth, and you,", gentlemen of the' press.
can do it. . You write a great . deal and all
that, but sometimes you write things and
qoot on: to the pubho without due consid
eration. , x on do a good deal of harm, and
K takes a -gooa deal of time to remove the
effect. Now yon have an opportunity to
do good by explaining these matters to the
people through the press. The farmer and
producer, no -matter how humble; are al
ways disposed to do. what is right-- You
eaa show -them the right. ; They hare an
interest in doing what . is .best, . but yen
must explain what the best ' course is, aid
then- they - will - adopt1 -H. '-' bo you' - must .
make them understand what 'produce is
worth and what the credit of the bond
holder is good for, Yoa must give a prop
er direction and these will follow."
Tha correspondent: asked the ex-Presi-
dent what waa thought of the present ad'
ministration .down, in Tennessee, and Mr.
Johnson answered frankly :
"I don't know that you ought to ask me
such a question. Peopler:would be very
likely to attribute an unfavorable opinion
from, me as prompted by , Improper mo
Uvea. : You know ,Yery well, air, for you
were familiar' with my views while I was
Prestdent-what my estimate of Grant was.
and I dont know of anything that has
since occurred that has caused me to change
my mind the -slightest. 1 , know Grant
thoroughly. I had ample, opportunity to
study him when I was President, and I am
convinced he is the greatest farce that was
ever thrust upon a people. Why, the lit
tle fellow excuse me for using the ex
pression, but l eant help pitying him the
Bttla fellow lias ; nothing in him. Ha has
not a single idea.- He ha 'no policy no
conception of what-the country requires.
He don't understand the -philosophy of a
single great question, and ia ' completely
lost in trying to understand his situation.
Ue is- -mendacious, cunning and treacher
ous, lie lied to me . flagrantly, and I qoq
icted him by my whole Cabinet: but
that even would have been tolerable were
it the only instance, but it was not. He
Hod on many other1 occasions. - I tell you,
sir, Grant is nothing more than a bundle
ot petty spites, jealousies and resentments.
And yet they say Grant is a second Wash
ington. Only think of it, when you com
pare him with Washington or . Jefferson,
where is he I Why he is so small you must
put your finger on him. tie, a little np
start, a coward, .physically and intellectu
ally, to be compared to George Washing
ton I Why, it makes me laugh. I have
more pity for the man than, contempt, for
i nave no spiia against mm. . jjut i iear
for the country when such t. man is liken
ed to tha father of hia -oouniry. Why,
just look at the. inaugural of '-Washington.
He speaks about his fear ana trembling in
accepting the- PresidzDcy even after all j
hia experience and rccesa. -Rot this little
follow Grant z. upstart, a r mere accident
of ths. war, a creature without the ability
to comprehend the philosophy of a single
great question, ; says in ' his inaugural, 'I
know tne responsibility is "greaf. " hut 1 ac
cept it without fear.1' Is that ' like Wash
ington or Jefferson ? Pshaw I - It a mon
strous to think of-. Grant, I tell you. sir.
has bo ideas, no policy,: ;Why. Washing
ton considered that a man's greatness was
measured by his morality; by the standard
or his soul. And 1 hare always considered
that the more soul or intellect-within him,
the more Godlike he became. But, air,
Grant has nothing. : Phybically and men
tally and morally he is a nonenity. - Why,
air, hia soul ia so . .nail that you -could put
it within the periphery of a hazel nut shell
and it might float about for a thousand
years without knocking against tho walls
of the shell. t. That s the size of his soul.
Just look at the maa sitting at a Cabinet
Council.' He has no Idea, no policy, no
standard, no creed,', no faith. How can

Ue sits there with his Cabinet. One mem
ber has - bought him a house in Philadel
phia, another has girca him $135,000, an
other has given him a carriage, and so on.
It is degrading to the office of President of
the United States to have such a man there.
They talk about his generalship. Well, he
was a mere incident of the war. ' ' lien and
arms were supplied in .abundance, and his
forces were so .massive that they simply
crashed out ths rebellion. .'It would have
been done had Grant never been bora.
Therefore he was- a mere incident. But
the little fellow has come to think he Is
somebody really. I can't help pityinsj him
wheal think how-well I know, him and
what an lnnalteasimai creatara hs really is.
I oflea think, that' ahoot the fittest place
for Grant la at same place in the country
where there are cross roads. ' I have been
at those places and have often" noticed the
scenes.' - At one corner perhaps there is a
small Uackamiih's .shop ; at another there
is a grocery store,, and at another a house
where the squire' meeta Xo settle eases.
Wen, I have often noticed at such a jone
tien of several roads that when the squire's
business la Oyer,- some will propose a horse
race, and to give, interest to the thing a
barrel ox - ctder and pezhapa half- a gallon

Hon. Thomas Ewing's Early
The- following are extracts from
an autobiographical sketch,' by the
venerable Thomas E wing r
"My father settled in what is now
Ames township, - Athens county,
early In April, 1789. He removed
from the mouth of Olive Green
Creek on the Musklneum River.
and the nearest neighbor with whom
we had association was in that direc
tion, distant about eighteen miles.
There were a few families settled
about the same time, on or near the
E resent site of the town- of Athens ;
at no road or even- pathway led to
them ; the distance was about twelve
miles. . There WIU dIm a ninniwr

him as follows :' . .. , . - . '
In answer to a question as o his
manner of taming lions he replied at
length, saying that "it was a gift of

It was a dirty November night,

of a great State like Ohio,' to.be "a man of
common sense and -common' industry in
the case of Gov. ' Hayes, we are : sorry to
say, a presumption not warranted by facts.
So far from the last Democratic Legisla
ture squandering the public money, the re
verse is true.-. It was the most economical
Legislature that has met in Ohio for years.!
; During the first session of the preceding
Legislature, which was Radical by a two
thirds majority, the appropriation of : tha
public money amounted to $4,808,635 03,
that of the first session of the succeed
ing Legislature, "which was Democratic la
both branches, to $4,084,766 20 being a
saving to the State by tha Democratic Leg
islature, charged; by Gov. Hayes ;witU ex-
travagance and with squandering the pub
lic money of $783,868 83. . "r " "'
During the second session' of - tfie same
Radical Legislature the. very, session that
passed the negro suffrage'' resolutions, the
amount of morey appropriated was $ i, 7S8
22(J 93, while that of the Second session
of the- -Democratic1 Legislature, '- including
the Morgan It aid Claims, the., rebuilding
of the Central Lunatic Asylum,- the pay-
ment of a debt incurred by . the Radicals,
in which there was a judgment against the
State, amounted to but $451,296 72,-show-ing
a saving to the -State of $246,932 28..
la the two years of Democratic Legisla--tive
rule, ' notwithstanding the Tieavy and
unusual expenditures of the public money;
which the Democratic 'Legislature had to
provide for, there was a saving to the State;
in the appropriation of public money for
State purposes,' ; over the two ; previous
years of Radical misrule, of $1,080,060 92
i No .man, no charitable ' institution, no
school board, has - just cause to say that
these appropriations by- the Democratic
Legislature. were insufficient, yet 'in two
years time," although the Stale was grow
ing, and many of the expenditures were ot
aa unusual and unprecedented character,
they "averaged over half a million dollars
each year of Democratic rule,' less than
that of the"previous two year's rule of
Radicalism. - tj. .,- -i ::. , . , i zSi .-'
