MB Visit to his Birthplace—Cordial Re
ception from his old Friends and Neigh
From a letter in the Washington
Chronicle, descriptive of Gen. Grant's
trip to the West we quote as follows:
The steamer halted at Point Pleas
ant, tho birthplace of Gen. Grant, a
quiet little country village in Ohio,
not far from Cincinnati, which will
probably never aspire, to a greater 'dis
tinction than it has already attained,
and if it doesn't increase rapidly in
population, can answer its more ambi
tious neighbors as the lion did the fox
in the fable, 21112011 sed leo. Hero the
General was given time to find the
house in which he was born, and which
he bad never seen to remember till
then. This property had long since
passed out of the ownership of Mr.
Grant, who removed to Georgetown,
Brown County, Ohio, when his son,
Ulysses, was a year old. The boat
ran on up from hero to Ripley, Ohio,
where the coming of Gem Grant had
been anticipated unexpectedly, and
preparations made to give him a rous
ing reception. It was night when .he
arrived. Rockets were flying, cannon
firing, bells ringing, music playing and
the whole town (some five or six thou
sand) appeared to be on the river bank
shouting vociferously. A committee
of gentlemen came aboard, and Gen.
Murphy delivered an address of wel
come. Gen. Grant replied that ho
was taking a little trip to visit the old
places where ho had spent his early
days, and that ho would be back the
next day, and would then be glad to
meet his old friends in a quiet way.
From here the boat ran up to Mays
ville, Ky., where the General left it,
arriving about 10 o'clock the night of
the 2d. He was met by numerous old
friends, and the greater part of the
night was spent in talking over old
times. Here he had gone to school,
and many old schoolmates chatted free•
ly with Um of the sweetest of all boy
At 5 o'clock the next morning, (the
3d,) the General, his son and Gen. Dent
drove out into the country fourteen
miles, to Mayslick, and breakfasted
with an - uncle, the brother• of the Gen
eral's father. After a short visit here
they returned to Maysville, arriving at
12 o'clock noon, having stopped at
Washington cm route, the oldest town
in Kentucky, where (Jul. Goggin en
tertained them. A steamer passed
soon after, and the General returned
to Ripley, arriving about 2 - o'clock,
and was entertained by his cousin, Mr.
Hudson, who had invited a number of
old friends to meet his guest. The
olden times were discussed, and a few
hours spent in delightful companion
ship. The General Visited the old
school-house where he I'm:it-NI some
of his early training, and the old mar
ket house, where it is not improbable
his ambition to achieve victories at
marbles made him an occasional tru
ant at school. He was reminded by
old school follows of many funny jokes
and pranks they had played off to
gether on their• fellows. While Gen.
Grant attended school at Ripley and
Maysville, Ky., his father lived at
Georgetown, Ohio, not far distant. It
was from Georgetown he was sent to
West Point. His father applied to
Senator Morris, of Ohio, who referred
the application to Representative Ha
mar, who secured the appointment.
The same person was afterward Gen.
Hamar in the Mexican war, and his
protege, Lieut. Grant, had the melan
choly satisfaction of attending his dy
ing bed and ministering to him when
mortally sick of fever in Mexico.
At Ripley, Ohio, carriages were ten
dered the party, and several citizens
joined in a drive over to Georgetown,
about twelve miles distant where they
arrived at 9 o'clock the night of the Bd.
Here the General found himself in the
midst of old and endeared friends.
Hero he had lived from the ago of one
year until he loft for West Point. The
Fourth of July was spent hero most
delightfully, visiting from neighbor to
neighbor, and reviving the memories,
of the olden time. Friends went by'
old familiar names. Titles and stiff
formalities were wholly ignored. It
was "How •are you John 2' "Why,
Ulysses, is this you How in the
world did you find your way back
here ?" Old men and women greeted
their former neighbor as their son, and
the greatest joy pervaded the people.
No discrimination was made by Dem
ocrats and political difference were un
thought of, but all vied with each oth
er• in extending a good old fashioned
welcome to their old friend and neigh•
bor. Some humorous scenes and dia
logues occurred. Not a few of the
friends said : "Well, Ulysses, you
know we are Democrats and always
have been, but, we are mighty proud
of our old townsman, and wo are afraid
you have demoralized our politics a
little; we reckon some of us will have
to vote for you."
On the night of the Fourth, the Gen
oral drove to Bethel, Ohio, twelve miles
from Georgetown, where -ho stopped
an hour with Mr. Morris, son of Sena
tor Morris, who had been instrumental
in appointing him to West Point. Here,
although the hour was late, he was
met by numerous old friends who re.
membered hint as a boy. Old Mr.
Grant had moved here from George
town after his son started to \Vest
Point, and it wag from here he moved
to Covington a few years since From
this place the-General drove the same
night to Batavia, twelve miles, whore
ho spent the Sabbath with his cousin,
formerly Miss Griffith, now Mrs. Judge
Ashman. The Sabbath was spent in
' church-going and pleasant conversa
tion with friends and relations.
In the drives from town to town the
General pointed out many old land•
marks, and several times, while
t , ,,.
4,.. - ks'
ing in the night, was called upon to
decide between different roads when
others of the party were unable to do
so: A trait in his character was here
displayed which must have been of in
calculable service iu managing large
armies. Years had flown since ho
had eeen or known anything about
this country, and yet ho seemed. to re
member distinctly every path and tree
and their exact locations. Of course
ho was not driven, but ho held the
reins in all these flying trips from
place to place,.and naturally enough—
and because natural, is•worth mention
ing—he always watered his own hor
ses and attended to their hitching and
unhitching. The country in Ohio and
Kentucky which he visited is lonely in
the extreme, and there seemed to bo
genuine enjoyment to the General in
travelling through it. You thin imag
ine the zest with which he entered into
the pleasures of this trip when you re
flect that but a day or two before he
was surrounded as none but a Wash
ington City official is. Frord Batavia
he drove. over, on Monday morning,
(the 6th,) to the Little Miami depot,
on the Little Miami Railroad, and in a
few hours was back again with his
family in Covington. If you will take
the trouble to look at the map; and fol
low the course I have mai'ked, you
will see that Gen. Grant is as enterpri
sing in his visiting as ho is in his fight
The party, again united, left Cov
ington the evening of' the 6th, and com
ing over the Ohio and Mississippi Rail
road, arriving at St. Louis, July 7, in
the afternoon. The citizens of Coving
ton got op it surprise demonstration
for the night of the 6th, but so closely
had their movements been concealed
from Gen. Grant, and so quietly did ho
leave for St. Louis, that neither knew
the plans of the other, and when the
hundreds assembled at the home of
Mr. Grant they found their favorite
already several hours away. Gon.
Grant's farm, to which his little party
repaired, is on the Gravois turnpike,
about nine miles southwest from St.
Louis. It originally belonged to Wm.
Dent and his children, but the desire
of the old gentleman to see it kept in
the hands of the fiunily *unbroken, in
duced all the children to sell their in
terest to Gen. Grant, except a small
portion. It comprises 1,040 acres,
ing beautifully, and is rich for agricul
tural purposes. The principal house is
on the Gravois road, and has been
built some years. It is a .cottage of
the Gothic order, and- is situated in a
beautiful natural grove with 'very pic

speech delivered at a Soymo,or and
Blair ratification meeting held in that
city on the 13th. Hear what the old
sinner had to say
I have been a Democrat. all my life—
before the war, during the war, and
since the war—and fought the war on
the principles of Democracy, believing
that the grand old Constitution which
embodied these principles was about
to be destroyed. 1 drew my sword
against the old flag; the old flag which
no longer represented these principles;
it was not the flag of 1776 against
which 1 drew my sword, but the flag
which had become "a flaunting lie,
so-called by prominent politicians of
the North. But now, in spite of the
efforts of those politicians who endea
vored to strangle the old Democratic
party, by erecting in its stead a new
Conservative party—a sort of conglo
merated party which was to comprise
politicians of every shade of opinion,
the grand old Democratic party has
arisen from the long slumber from 1 ,
which it bad indulged, and now gives
signs of new life and vitality, and I
have come hero to-night from the
country to ratify and rejoice with you
in the nomination of Seymourand
There is really but ono grand issue
in this contest, and that is the restora
tion of these States to their proper
places in the Union, with all their
rights and privileges unimpaired.—
This issue will have the effect to drive
from our midst tho hordes of adven
turers who have swarmed upon. us like
vultures, to cat up the substance of
the people. This issue will' again re
duce the negro to a subordinate position
as the inferior race, and restore the
white man tto the government which
belongs to him. When you have Set
tled this issue it will be time enough
to'rid ourselves of the leprous' army
which has been fattening upon the
wealth of the South. It will be time
enough to settle questions of currency.
It will be time enough to destroy the
tariff 'and taxation under which the
nation has been groaning. And now,
follow citizens, I have come herb to
declare that I have given in my alle
giance, heart and soul, to the old flag,
provided wo chn restore the old flag
again to be the representative of prin
ciples of the constitution, which we
will be able to effect by-the election of
Seymour and Blair.
—John Forsytb,of the Mobile Register,
supports Seymour principally on 'the
ground that ho "is in favor of over
throwing the reconstruction measures,
with their mongrel and illegal govern
ments in the Southern States." The
literal moaning of which is, that
Seymour is elected he will inaugurate
a rebellion to restore tho whipped re
bels all they had before they attempt
ed to got up an independent Confede
—Robert Toombs has made a speech
for Seymour and Blair. Ho thinks if
they are elected he may yet call the
roll of his slaves within the shadow of

TERMS, $2,00 a year in advance.
When the bill making greenbacks a
legal tender was pending, Mr. George
IL. Pendleton made a speech denying
the Constitutional power of Congress
to issue a note not bearing interest;
also denying the Constitutional power
to compel any person to acieept any
such note, or anything else than silver
and gold coin, in payment of debts,
bonds or mortages, public or private.
He insisted that the. issue of these
greenbacks was, in the language of the
Democratic platform, "unconstitution
al, and therefore void."
Having exhausted his rhetoric in
pointing out their illegality, ho made
an argument against tho inexpediency
of issuing them, and in so doing drew
Abe following picture of horrible effects
of issuing $400,000,000 of greenbacks.
Read it, and remember that the Demo
cratic platform, as interpreted by Mr.
Pendleton, is now seeking repudiation
by insisting upon an additional issue of
$1,700,000,000 of greenbacks. Pen
dleton said :
"I believe that this Government has
reached a crisis in its history. • I be
lieve that it is approaching a period in
the history of its legislation which
may determine the question of its con
tinuance. By wisdom it may over
come the evils of secession, by its
great powers and resources iL may-be
able to defend itself against those in
arms against it; but I firmly believe
that it cannot maintain itself against
the shock of' the accumulated and
manifold dangers which follow inevit
ably and closely in the'wake of an il
legal, unsound and depreciated Gov
ernment paper currency.
"The gentleman from New York
(Spalding) called them (legal tenders)
'demand notes! They have been so
called throughout the country. They
do not bear a single characteristic of a
demand note. There is no time, from
the hour when they shall pass into
the hands of the holder, when ho can
by their terms demand that they shall
be redeemed. There is no time when
the faith of the Government is pledged
to their payment. The holder may
present them and ho is told that the
time has not arrived at which, by the
face of the bill, they aro to be paid.—
They will inevitably depreciate. The
wit of man has never discovered a means
by which paper currency can be kept at
par value, except bfits speedy, cheap,
certain convertibility into gold and
silver. I need not cite gentlemen to
history or authorities, unless on polit
ical economy, to prove it. Unless con
vertible, they have always depreciated;
they always will depreciate. ' they
ought to depreciate, because they are
only valilable as the representatives
of gold and silver ; and if they are not
convertible into that of which they
aro the representative, they must no•
cessarily lose their value.
You can send these notes out into
the world stamped with irredeemabili
ty. You put on them the mark of Cain,
and, like Cain, they will go forth to be
vagabonds and fugitives on the earth.—
What, then, will bo the consequence?
It requires no prophet to tell what
will be their history.
The currency will be expanded ;
Prices will be inflated ;
Fixed values will depreciate;
Incomes will be diminished;
The savings of the poor will vanish;
The hoardings of the widow will
Bonds, mortgages and notes, every
thing of fixed value, will lose their
Everything of changeable value
will be appreciated ; . .
The necessaries of'. life will rise in
The Government will pay two-fold,
certainly largely more than it ought,
for everything it goes into the market
Gold and silver will be driven out of
What then ?
The day of reckoning must come
Contraction will follow
Privato ruin and public bankruptcy
either with or without REPUDIATION
will inevitably follow.
What Seymour thinks of Them.
On the 26th of June, 1868, in his
speech in New York, only four days
before-the Convention, Horatio Sey
mour thus described the effect of issu
ing any more - greenbacks. Ho said:
" If on the other hand, we debase
the currency by unwise issues, we
shall equally perplex business and de
stroy sober industry, and make all
prices mere matters of gambling,
tricks and chances. This will end as
it did in the Southern Confederacy.
At the outset the citizens of Richmond
went to market with their money in
their vest pockets, and brought back
their dinners in their baskets ; in the
end they took their money their
baskets, and took home their dinners
in their vest pockets."
The Chicago _Times Describes Them
About the samo time the Chicago
Times," in reviewing dm various plans
for paying the public debt, drew this
graphic) picture of the worthlessness
of greenbacks under an increased is•
sue. It said :
"The first group contains the Cin ,
cinnati plan (i. 0., the Pendleton
scheme.) The great feature of this
scheme is what is called 'payment of
the national debt in greenbacks.' It
contemplates a new issue of green
backs, equal in amount to the bonds
which ala proposed to redeem. Over
twelve hundred millions of five-twenty
bonds will become redeemable before
1872. Five hundred millions aro re
deemable now. The way to pay thorn
according to this plan, is to set • the
printing presses in motion. So long
as the rags and lampblack hold out,
wo will have no trouble in paying the
bonds at maturity. When all have
}von thus paid, we bli 411 44110tpilhiti

to our paper money the trifling infla

told, a circulating medium of $2,300,.:
000,000. Then we shall have what
are called 'good times,' 'splendid
times.' Wheat and greenbacks will
bo exchanged bushel for bushel. A
barrel of whisky will be :sold for two
barrels of legal tenders. Collectors of
Government revenue will go about
with wagons having lofty and caps•
cioiis receptacles on them, like those
used in handling - charcoal, and will
gather the public taxes with pitch
forks. To levy $5 in gold will require
a one•horse load of greenbacks. But
the Government bonds will be "paid."
The only question will now bo how to
pay the Government greenbacks. This
is something the plan does not con,
template. Specie payment under it
will be reached—never!"
These are three Democratic pictures
of the effect of the greenback rodemps
THE GREAT FLOOR.
The Freshet Near Baltimore—The ca=
lamity at Ellicott City; Md•
The Baltimore . American of this
morning says calamity at Elli
cott City is described by Miss H. C.
Adams, Principal of Western Female
High School No. I of this city, with
great clearness. Miss Adams was sit
ting with a child in - the house Of Mr.
Gibbons, and looking up the river, cal,
led the attention of the child to the
water, which was coming down in a
wild manner, but which she -suppoged
was not unusual in a shower, although
no rain had then fallen atEllicott city,
except a few pattorings drops, since
day-break. Within ten minutes of
her first notice of the coming wa,
ter ' the houses on the tongue of made
land between the race and the river
were cut off from all communication
on either side. Trees, logs, debris 'of
every kind, and the bridge above,*
swept down the river on one side, and
through the race on tho other with
fearful velocity, cutting off all commit,
nication with the main land. Dr. Ow
ings, whose house was on this tongue
of the land, had but a few minutes be
fore left his family, much against the
remonstrances of his wife, who had be,
come alarmed at the threatening as,
pect of the sky; and only after three
messages were sent, he left—to return
to it no more. lie had barely reached
the bridge on his return, then looking
forward, ho saw the flood coming
down, and all the houses on the small
breadth of land between the raceway
and the river, not only surrounded
with water, but that the flood had al,
ready driven them into the 2d story,
Dr. Owings took refuge in the house
of Mr. Gibbons, • not a hundred feet
from his Own dwelling,and galled to
hie wife advising her how she should
act for the safety of herself and *Phil,
dron by her side. Speedily the water
drove her and the children to the roof,
where, clinging to the chimney, they
seemed somewhat smite, but the rock,
ing of the house—a three story frame,
soon caused the chimney to fall. Mean,
while, Mrs. Marschano, being in the
house above, reached up to Mrs. Ow
ing a baby three weeks old, supposing
it would be safer there than in her
own maternal arms. Mrs. Owings was
seen to hold it as long as she livod:
Dr. Owings, calling across the - race,
as his house floated from its foundation
and lodged against ono below, directed
that the walls of the adjoining houses
should be cut through. This was done
by Mr. Fountain, and thus, as one
house after another fell, workingmost
heroically, this noble man cut through
the walls of seven houses, until they
came to the last in the row. Thishouse
was occupied by Mr. and Mrs. Patridge,
who had sold it very recently,and were
to leave it on the following day forit
new home in Virginia.
In this house all the occupants - of the
six houses above were assembled. All
the other houses' had fallen and drifted
away, but this, for a time stood firm
against the torrent, and there was a
slight hope that it might be saved:—
Suddenly it was seen to waver, and in
a moment more, with all its precious
burden of children, women, and men—
men powerless against that flood, al,
though within a hundred feet of solid
ground—it fell with a Wrap crash;
and not a soul was saved.
