Though not hpeak-
Jug for tho public, no man was more
rank in oxprexsiK M views on all
nulilio matters. Ho was rais-cd
W . , , , iti(.8
ble, father, m well known in Galena,
was always an netivo and influential
member of tho old Whip; party, audi
after it went out of existence, of tho
Hcpublican party. Tlio general wan
always a Whig, so far as ho was a
politician at all, and novor belonged to
or had any bympathy at all with thu
so-called Democrat lo party, Ho stated
this as a fact. Had General (.rant
been a member oftho Democratic-party
ho would havo been in thu tamo posi
tion as ho now is", and tho bitmo as all
tho most loyal and patriotic, men
who were in that party now occupy.
Though not a voter in Illinois, in lfiiio,
yet after Mr. Lincoln'- Administration
commenced, and after tho firing upon
Sumpter, thero was no man who gave
a moro earnest support to that Admin
juration. General Grant was amoi)'
tho first to poinpiehcnd tho results that
would grow out of tho rebellion, and
tho country will not lorget miu as ear
ly as 1HG3 ho wrote a letter saying that
anions as ho was for peacfi bo did not
wibb to eeo it established uutil slavery
was wiped out. I n WW '' w pro
foundly anxious for thp re-election of
Mr, Lincoln, and no man moro fully
comprcliondtxl tho great fact that upon
his re-olectton hinged tho mtcccss of
our causo and tho suppression of tlio
rebellion. Ho ro fa,r departed from his'
usual courso tit such matters as to writo
and penult tlio publication of a letter
in which ho briefly nnd emphatically
summed up tho whole question. Tho
letter was published by hundreds of
thousands by tho Hcpublican Congres
sional committee, and oxcrtcd great in
tluenco iu tho country. Ho was opun
ly and strongly for both tho constitu
tional amendments, nnd ho hailed tho
reconstruction act of tho Thirty-Ninth
Congress ns tho solution ofourdifllcul
ties, nnd ho entered upon the discharge
of his dntics under that net with zeal,
vigilance, and fidelity. Sympathizing
with Congress in its action, and appre
ciating tho importance of its being iu
session, he urged and advised such no
tion as would secure an extra session if
necessary. When that ses'loit came
he expressed tho most serious fear of
thu effect of a long adjournment, and
a far-reaching sagacity anticipating tho
precise state of things that has occur
red, he ucd all his influence with Sen
ators to have them adopt tho House
provision of the amended bill re
quired tho assent of tho Senato to tho
removal of tho district commnuders.
Favoring the reconstruction act"-, no
effort of Iil has been wanting toseeuro
their enforcement iu thu letter and
spirit, to the end that the Union might
1m speedily and fully restored. Ho be
lieves there is no protection or safely
to tho colored peoplo and tho loyal
white people in tho rebel States except
through impartial suffrage. The rccon
rtniction nets having recognized thu
entire equality of all American citizens
in tho States lately iu rebellion, be bo
lieves that consistency, as well ns im
partial jutice, demands that thero
hliould bo no discrimination against
any class of persons iu any of tho States.
His sympathies, bis convictions, nnd
his hopes nro now, as tboy always have
been, with thu great patriotic nud loy
al peoplo that carried tho country
through thu war. Hu is in favor of
upholding tho honor and credit of tho
National Government, and holds that
all our obligations must bo discharged
in conformity to tho terms on which
they wore contracted. I lo thinks there
Miouhl bo exercised by Congress, nud
by nil departments ol tho Government,
moro rigid and searching economy in
tho expenditures of the publio monoy ;
and wheruver ho has had control lie
has struck oft' every useless oxpenso
and reformed every abuso. General
Grant occupies at tho present tho posi
tion ns Secretary of War ail interim iu
tho Cabinet of Mr. Johnson. His action
iu accepting that position had been tho
subject of u great deal of comment, uud
excited tlio fears nf many good and
loyal men. It invoked tho denuncia
tion ol enemies and brought forth ex
cuses of friends. Ho aceopted that po
sition, not, as ias been alleged, in obe
dience to the command ot u superior
oflioer, but from tho stern scnooofduty
to bis country. Tho President had de
termined to""ro-uovu tho .Secretary of
War at nil hazards, without oxouio or
jiihtiuYatioii. Tho President thought
to ivliovu himself from thu odium of
.Mr. Stanton's removal and draw atten
tion from that action by offering tho
place to General Grant. What was
tolsodonu? Should tho general step
into tho shoe's of .Mr. Stanton, and
wield all tho legitimate powers of (ho
department iu aid of reconstruction uid
in support of tho district commanders.
In tho management of tho Indian war
aud the supervision of war contracts,
should ho bo thero to resist tho raid of
tho thieves and plunderers and war
claim agents whom Stanton hud hold
at bay, and who wero waiting to thrust
their arms into tho Treasury to filch
untold millions of tho publio money)1
Or should ho rcfitse, and permit that
.most important position to 1-p filled by
u Copperhpad nud n Jplinspuman, wIiq
would hinder reconstruction, who
would doinqrilizo tho army, who would
sanction fr-iudiileiitimd bogus claims
of rcbois, and. bring roproaoh generally
upon tho publio sorvice. Gonoral Grant
did nut, tboreforo, hesitate to accept
tho position and nil its responsibilities,
nnd his action had tho concurrence of
Mr. Stanton. Indeed, no steps worn
taken in that wholo business except
upon full consultation and understand
ing between those two distinguished
men under such circumstances. Thq
loyal men of tho country would havo
had good causo to censuro Gonoral
Grant hnd ho refused tho position. Tlio
very men who had censured him most
for taking it would now havo been cen
suring him for not taking it. Tjicy
would havo said that, professing to bo
in sympathy with loynl men and in favor
of reconstruction, ho shrank from tho
responsibility of n place offered to him
in which ho could havo been of inestl
niable service to tho country, nud by
sucliTefusal tho War Department went
into tho hands of an enemy. Uut tho
general wants no other vindication for
his action than will bo furnished by
hi record when it Minll see tho light,
and by his official act-). Ho can afford
to wait. In conclusion Mr. Wnshburno
s:tld ho was not speaking of General
Grant as a candidate for the Presidency,
for ho had no right to speak of him in
that regard. Hu had siiokeu nshuhnd
because so many of his fellow-citizens
had asked him in relation to the posi
tion tho general occupied on questions
of tho most overwhelming publio im
portance, and what were Ills views, sen
timents and convictions touching mat
ters in which all good citizens felt so
deep an interest.

I know by tho sympathetic glow up
on Ills Imlil head, I know by tho
thoughtful look upon his face, I know
by tho emotional Hush upon tho straw-
berry on tho end of tho old free liver's
nose, that Simon WhculerV memory
was busy with tho olden time. And
so I prepared to leave, because all these
wero symptoms of a reminiscence
signs that ho was going to be delivered
of another of his tiresome personal ex
periences -but I was too slow; he got
tho stall of me. As ueuriy as lean
recollect, tho iulllctlou wiih couched iu
thu billowing manner:
" Wo was all boy, then, nud didn't
caro for nothing only bow to shirk
school nnd kep up u ruilvin' statu ol
devilment nil the time. This ynrJim
Wolfe I was talking about was the
'prentice, and hu was the best hearted
(oiler, ho was, nnd tiff? most Ibrglviu'
and unselfish I ever see well, thoro
couldn't bo a moro buller boy than
what bo was, takuhliu how you would ;
and sorry enough I was when I seo him
for tho last time,
"Mo and Henry was always poster
ing him, and plasteiiug boss hills on
his back, uud putting bumble bees iu
hii bod, and so on, nud sometimes we'd
crowd iu nud bunk with him, not'th
standing his growling, nnd then we'd
let on to gel mail ami fight across him,
so iih to keep him stirred up like. Ho
was niueteon, ho wns, and long, and
lank, and bashful, and wo was fifteen
and sixteen, and tolerably lazy nnd
"So, that night, you know, that my
sister Mary gave tho candy pulliii'they
started us off to bed early, so ns tho
company could havo full swing, and wo
rung in ou Jim to havo some fun,
''Our windor looked out onto tho
roof of tho ell, and about ton o'clock a
nouplo of old tout oats got to rairin'
ami cliargin' around on it and carryin'
pn liko hid. Thero was four inches of
snow on tho roof, nnd, it was frozo so
that thero was a right smart crust of
ico on it, and tho moon was sliinln'
bright, and wo could seo them eats liko
daylight. First, they'd stand oft' and
e-yow-yow-yow, just tho samo as if
they was a cussin' ono another, you
know, ami bow up their baoks, and
bush ttrr tholr tails, and nwoll around a
bit, nud then all of a sudden tho gray
cat he'd snutoh a handful of fur off tho
yallcr cat's hum, nnd spin htm around
jiko a button ou a barn door, Hut tho
yallor was gamo, and ho'd como and
clinch, and tho way they'd gougo, and
bite, and howl, nnd tho way thoy'd
mako ho fur fly was powerful.
"W6ll, Jim, ho got disgusted with
tho row and Mowed ho'd plimb out
thoro and Bhako 'rim, oft'n that roof,
t- reelv no notion of dn?n' It,
Uut vyc, everlastingly dogced him and
bullyragged him, nnd 'lowed ho'd al
ways hrnggod how ho wouldn't take a
dare, nnd so on, till bimoby ho lusted
up tho winder, and lo nnd behold you,
ho went went exactly as" ho wns
nothln' on but a shirt, and It wnt short.
You ought to a scon him I You ought
tor a noon hint creeplq' ovor that ice,
nnd diggin' his too-nailt and lits flngor
