has been thundered down by history
from almost a hundred victorious batllo

in bis life; tliero is a grandeur of char
acter, eouplod with an honest modest
simplicity of manner, which has given
him a placo m the. nation's . heart that

, What could such a soldier bo other
than tho embodiment of magnanimity?
How could such a man feel aught but
Christian charity? Howould such a
citizen be loyal to loss than the whole
country? Applause. I tejl you,
soldiers, that General Grant, your lato
Coinmadder-iii-Chicf, : stands by tho
I'resident of tho Unitod ' States in his
efforts to restore the Union; llonow.
ed applause, I speak from a record
which all may tee and read. The
same spirit which Grant manifested at
the surrender of Leo has characterized
every act of Johnson in his troatmont
of the subjugated South. 7 When Con
oral Grant, in his final report, , oxpres

perpetual peace und . harmony with
that enemy whoso manhood, howevor
mistaken tho cause, had drawn forth
such herculean,' deeds of valor, ho
meant wbat ho ssid, . A voice, "That's
so." One of tho first, if not tho very
first application made by a prominent
Southern man to the ' President of tho
Unitod States, was made by' General
Robert E. Loo, late Pommonder-jn-chief
of tho Confederate force, and on
tho back of that application is an in
dorsoment a;warhi, earnest ' eloquent

that town, a young attorney present
wus requested to find out who would
supply the milk for tho dinner. 'Jump
ing upon a chair, ho loudly asked ; .
"How many ladies hero will give
milk for the brave soldiers?" ;: 1
An elderly lady quickly arose and
said that "she caiU4 Jipt she had not
given milk for leu years." r
.This so utterly confounded thoyoong
lawyr that ho was entirely unable ' to
Iiroisecute his inquiry, and it has nover
