THE A3IERICAX PRESIDENTS.
The divinity which is said to hedge
and surround kings has nothing to
do vrith the American presidency.
The king must be born o the "royal
bloodand -stamped Trith the "divine
right" to rule. Any man may become
president, under our laws, who was
born in the United States, is a citizen
and 35 years old. No other qualifica
tion is required by law. Tho son of
a pauper is as eligible as the son of a
millionaire. The only right to the
office is that which the people grant
Most o tho twenty-one gentlemen
'who have served as presidents from
1789 to 18S1 a period of ninety-ilve
yfiars were neither very rich nor
The first president was a well-to-do
Virginia planter, or farmer, and the
owner of slaves.
The second was a Massachusetts
lawyer in easy circumstances.
The third, fourth, and fifth were
barely in -independent oircumstances,
and the fifth died poor and was
buried at tho expense of his relatives
"The sixth president John Q. Ad
amsinherited a fair fortune and
died rich for his times.
The seventh Andrew Jackson
was born in poverty, and had a hard
struggle for a living till he becamo of
age. As u rough western lawyer he
managed to acquire a competence,
and when ho died his possessions
were probably worth a hundred
It has often been said of President
Van Buren, who succeeded Jackson,
that ho laid the foundation of a tol
erablo financial success by the say
ings from his maurer salary during
Harrison, tho ninth pre-sident, lived
and died a poor man. A governor
of the Northwest lerriioiy.he acquir
ed a small tract of land on th Ohio
river, below and near Cincinnaii, on
which, in a two-story log house, he
spent hi3 declining years as a small
farmer. From this humble house
came the figurative ''log cabin," which
was used with wonderful effect; by
the Whigs in tho "hard cider and log
cabin" campaign of l&iO. The hard
cider part of tho slogan wa8 derived
from tho alleged fact that tho "Whig
candidate was too poor to drink any
thing more costly than that western
fluid; but yet so hospitable an enter
tainer of strangers that the latch
string was always hanging on tho
outside of the cabin door.
John Tyler, the tenth 'president,
succeeded" to tho office from the vice
presiaency, upon the death of Har
rison, six weeks after his inaugura
tion. Tyler was a Virginia lawyer
and farmer, who was saved from dy
ing poor by marrying a rich wife of
the city of New-ork-.
The eleventh and twelf th presidents
Polk, a Tennessee lawyer, and Tay
.lor, a Louisiana planter, wero in inde
pendent circumstances. Taylor en
tered the Mexican war as a colonel in
the regular army, but brigadier-general
by brevet, and his good fortune
at the battles of Palo Alto, Eesaca
and Buena Vista secured him the
military prestige which gave him the
Wbig nomination for the presidency
in 18s8, over Clay, Webster and all
the eminent statesmen of that party.
He died in tho second yearof his term
and was succeeded by Millard Pill-
more of New lork, elected as vice
Mr. Fillmore was a well-to-do law
yer of the city of Buffalo, who had
serred somewhat conspicuously for
several terms in congress. He rose
from poverty and obscurity and died
a rich man.
Pierce, the fourteenth pre3ideut,was
of humble origin, became a success
'ful lawyer in New Hampshire, after
wards a general in the Mexican war,
and was never accounted wealthy.
Buchanan came of a Scotch-Irish
Presbyterian family of one of the
' Cumberland valley counties in Penn
sylvania. He was born in poverty,
but by legal practice and frugality
achieved a fair fortune probably
"mounting to $200,000 at the time of
Abraham Lincoln, the sixteenth
president, came of parents who earned
their bread by hard labor, and his
own beginnings were of tho humblest
,4s a lawyer at Springfield, 111., he
earned enough to make himself inde-
Sendent and "keep the wolf from the
oor." He died in the second month
of his second term, by the hand of an
assassin, and was succeeded by
Andrew Johnson of Tennessee, who
was elected vice president in Novem Nevem
Mr. Johnson's parents were poor
people of North Carolina, and this
-president in -early life learned the
tailor's trade, and for many years
"earned his living by that means. If
he left any considerable fortune to
his cbildren we have not heard of it
General U. S. Grant, tho eighteenth
president, was elected first in 1863
and a second time in 1872. His birth
was humble, his parents poor and he
received his education at tho hands
of the government in the military
academy of West Point. He served
in tho Mexican war as a lieutenant of
the regular army and without special
distinction. His life from the close
of that war was veiled in obscurity
and is now known to have been along
struggle with adversity, until the
oivil "war of 1861 opened the way to
a display to those brilliant and solid
military qualities which have ranked
him among tho Hannibals, Napoleons
and Wellingtons of history as a com-
jnander of armies. It is known that
& part of his life between 1850 and
I860 was spent on this coast as an
army officer of subaltern rank and
that in all these years he was a poor
man, depending on his army pay for
" big living. It was during Grant's oc
cupation of the presidency that the
yearly salary of that office was raised
"fer act of congress from $25,000 to
"$50,000. When, after having served
two full terms, he retired to private
life and had completed his "tour of
the world,' landing first in the city
- of San Francisoo, his whole fortune
was estimated at less than $100,000.
Hayes, the nineteenth president,
Wd the sixteenth by election, was a
i-lawyer in-good practice in tho state
"f 6hio; and had served as a colonel
in the Union army. He is neither
rich nor poor.
Garfield, the twentieth president,
began life as schoolmaster, with the
preparatory qualification of n colleg
iate education, the expenses of which
his family was not in circumstances
to bear. At his death it wa3 found
that had hardly anything was left for
the support of his widow and chil
dren, but a number of his friends and
admirers contributed a fund amount
ing to over $300,000.
Arthur, the successor of Garfield,
also began life as a teacher, and is
not believed to bo a wealthy man,
though in independence and free
Thus it is seen that a very large
majority of the American presidents
for tho first century after the creation
of tho office were born in poverty,
and died, not in wealth, nor yet any
of them in absolute want. Tho ag
gregate of salary paid to these t:wen-tv-five
presidents during these ninety
five years is but S2,750,000. No ex
ecutive office in the whole world iaof
greater pswer and resi o isibility than
tuis one, nor does any king or emper
or have nearly as much labor
imposed upon him as our president
must go through with. And yet in
ninety-five years we have paid them
all a million dollars less than the em
peror of Germany or the Queen of
England receives iu one year. The
American people believe that the
honor and power of tho position is
and ought to be its chief compensa
tion, and tho eagerness with which it
is sought for confirms this view. In
all these years, though hardly a year
has passed without charges of cor
ruption or peculation against the
congresses and departments of the
government, there has never been a
charge of this kind against a presi
dent, nor is there any reason to be
lieve that any one of tho presidents
has been other than perfectly clean
handed in office.
It has never been tho policy of tho
government of tho United States to
pension rotirine civil officers, save tho
judges an.1 as to these, only of recent
times. The presidents are not pen
sioned. But as it has passed into a
rule, to which there are but two ex
ceptions, that a gentleman who has
onco keen president shall not accept
any other official position, state or na
tional; and as it is being seriously
mooted to restrict the presidents to
a single term, and as it seldom hap
pens that a president is elected under
50 or 55 years of age, it may be urged
with great force that on retiring from
office the president should be allowed
a life annuity at least equal to half
the salary of the office, as a guaranty
against poverty and want in the last
yoars of his life. It would be but a
light tax on so great and rich a na
tion. Thores are but ttvo or-presidentB
now living. In another year there
may be three. There are seldom more
than three. At tho present rate of
compensation no moro than $75,000 a
year would, be required to thus pen
sion threo ex-presidents. And it ia
seldom that tho British government
is not paying a larger amount than
that to pension her ex-lord chancel
lors, the dignity and honor of that
offico being immeasurably below that
attaching to the presidency in this
The mode of selecting tho presi
dents for the first thirty-six years of
the republic was very simple by com
parison with the complex system or
the present day. A few leading men
of tho old Federal and the old Be
publican parties would get together
in congress and name tho candidates.
Tho states named their several elec
toral tickets to conform with the ini
tial nominations, and the voters voted
accordingly. It was not till the first
election of Jackson, in 1828, that the
whole number of votes exoeeded one
million. There were but twenty-four
states at that election. Now tho num
ber of states is thirty-eight, and tho
total of votes cast in November, 1880,
was over 9,200,000, and will probably
reach 10,000,030 this year. It is be
coming an affair of tho grandest pro
portions and the most thrilling inter
est, and the complexity of tho ma
chinery and methods used to get the
candidates of the respective political
parties regularly before the conntry
correspond with the woightiness of
the business. Ttte power oi nomi
nating has passed from congress and
a few leading men into tho hands of
conventions, whose delegates, coming
directly from tho people, aro supposed
to know the present will of the peo
ple better than congress. The meet
ings of these national conventions
are to this country something like
tho Olympiades were to the ancient
Greeks. Thoy stir tho passions of the
nation to its depths and refleot a
grandeur upon the first prize which
makes tho presidency the mostim
portaut office in the gift of mankind.
