. Halleck for the victory and slaughter at Pittsburgh Landing, and paid no attention to my entrance. Mr. Lincoln said: A Cabinet meeting had been called at the request of Gen. McClellan, to consider my offence in writing the letter conspicuously marked in the Democrat before us, and which had been kindly furnished several of their number by certain patriotic and high-toned gentlemen in Jamestown, N. Y. But they would have to delay a few minutes, to await the arrival of the Commodore from Yorktown, with despatches from Gen. McClellan, who had telegraphed that the business must not go on till his despatches arrived. During the interval, me, and Abe, and Seward, sauntered through the rooms, looking at the various objects of interest. On entering the library, we found that the messenger had returned from Seward's cellar, with some of the Secretary's best Auburn brand. The cork was drawn, and we sampled the fluid. We next visited the ladies' parlor, and were presented to Mary, who

ess. At this juncture Mr. Welles looked up from the paper he had been so busily perusing, and inquired of the President: If he had ever heard anything about the fight the Democrat spoke of, between the Monitor and the Merrimac, and the danger there was of the latter getting out and coming up the Potomac and bombarding Washington? Mr. Lincoln said: It was a fact. The Secretary seemed greatly surprised, and said: He must write to his brother-in-law in New-York, to send round a vessel to Hampton Roads, to watch the Merrimac, and also to send him the Weekly Post, so that he could get the news. He chose the Post, because he had been in the habit, aforetime, of contributing essays for its columns. He also remarked that there was much valuable and deeply interesting news in the Democrat, which was then only some four weeks old. Mr. Stanton here proposed that the contraband article should be read, as he had been so busy of late, he had not read the copy sent him by his patriotic corre

anced the evil, and he was for calling it square. It was the President's turn, now, to decide the matter. He always gets the opinion of his constitutional advisers all round, and then does as he has a mind to. Abe turned to me with a merry twinkle in his eye, and his lovely and expressive countenance seemed more seraphic than ever, and says he to me, says he: Your letter on McClellan reminds me of a story that I heard in the days of John Tyler's Administration. There was an editor in Rhode-Island, noted for his love of fun — it came to him irresistibly — and he couldn't help saying just what came into his mind. He was appointed Post-master by Tyler. Some time after Tyler vetoed the Bank Bill and came into disrepute with the Whigs, a conundrum went the rounds of the papers. It was as follows: Why is John Tyler like an ass? This editor copied the conundrum, and could not resist the temptation to answer it, which he did as follows: Because he is an ass. This piece of fun cost h

who I supposed wished to apologise for the blunder that she made in my not receiving her invitation to the White House ball. So giving my boots an extra blacking, and my moustache an extra twist, I wended my way to the President's domicile. After disposing of hat, cane, etc., I was conducted into the room used for Cabinet meetings, and soon found myself in the presence of the President, Messrs. Seward, Stanton and Welles. Mr. Seward, whom I had met at a dinner-party at Gen. Risley's in Fredonia, during the campaign of 1860, recognised me, and at once alluded to the excellence of Gen. Risley's brandy, and proposed to Abe that he should send over to his cellar at the State department, and get a nice article that he had there. I noticed three copies of the Chautauqua Democrat spread out on the table, bearing certain initials, which for the sake of avoiding personalities I will not mention. I also noticed ominous black lines drawn around certain passages which I recognised as being

So many weeks had slipped away since my friends in Jamestown commenced sending the Democrat regularly to the members of the Cabinet and Gen. McClellan, that the vision of a file ofs so deeply engaged in reading a fourth copy, that he did not look up as I went in.

, who came forward and shook me cordially by the hand, and desired to know how I flourished? Said she never should forgive me for not attending her ball. She was greatly shocked to hear that there had been a failure to connect, about getting the card of invitation. We were soon summoned to the council; the Commodore had arrived, bringing seventeen of Gen. McClellan's staff, who had been delegated by him to transmit to the President his copy of the Democrat, which he had received at Fortress Monroe. On opening it, the same ominous ink-marks were drawn around the passages intended to be brought to the especial notice of the General. The staff-officers then withdrew, and the President proposed to proceed to business. At this juncture Mr. Welles looked up from the paper he had been so busily perusing, and inquired of the President: If he had ever heard anything about the fight the Democrat spoke of, between the Monitor and the Merrimac, and the danger there was of the latter getti

McClellan, that the vision of a file of ferocious soldiers had departed from my imagination, when one morning the subscriber received a gilt-edged, jockey-club scented note, requesting his distinguished presence at the White House at a certain hour. I had no doubt but the note was from Mrs. Lincoln, who I supposed wished to apologise for the blunder that she made in my not receiving her invitation to the White House ball.

s being part of my letter of several weeks ago. They looked like Mr. Benton's expunged resolutions on the Senate Journal. Mr. Welles was so deeply engaged in reading a fourth copy, that he did not look up as I went in. It seems that the mailing clerks at Jamestown had neglected to furnish the Navy Department with a copy, and the Secretary was deeply absorbed in its perusal. Mr. Stanton was busy writing his recent order, thanking God and Gen. Halleck for the victory and slaughter at Pittsburgh Landing, and paid no attention to my entrance. Mr. Lincoln said: A Cabinet meeting had been called at the request of Gen. McClellan, to consider my offence in writing the letter conspicuously marked in the Democrat before us, and which had been kindly furnished several of their number by certain patriotic and high-toned gentlemen in Jamestown, N.

An Editor before the Cabinet. The editor of the Chautauqua, N. Y., Democrat is spending his time in Washington, and writing home letters for publication. One of them, it is claimed, contained contraband news, and the editor (if his statement may be believed) has been summoned before the Cabinet to answer for the heinous offence. Here is his account of the affair. So many weeks had slipped away since my friends in Jamestown commenced sending the Democrat regularly to the members of thesily perusing, and inquired of the President: If he had ever heard anything about the fight the Democrat spoke of, between the Monitor and the Merrimac, and the danger there was of the latter getting out and coming up the Potomac and bombarding Washington?
