Andrew Jackson was ouo of our leading presidential tourists , and ho was ono of tbo best mixers amonir the presidents. Ho was acoodJiulKUof human nature , and always adapted himself to lib surroundltipis. Ho was worshipped by the democracy nnd dur ing his tour thousands of babies were pre sented for him to kiss. Ho was a kind hearted man and ho did kiss it few hundreds of them , but ho often rolcgatod the duty1 to his cabinet , who accompanied him. Colonel A. H. Hotcler. who was a member of the con gress of the United States before the war , was attending l-'rlncetoii rollcpo when .lack- son , ntailo ono of those tout's nnd ho accom panied the procession from Princeton to Tronton. During tha trip , so bo tells mo , whllo General Jackson and General Eutou were riding along in the carriage together , a lean , long , lank , homely woman , was HCCH rushing across the fluid with n baby In her arms. Shehon'dcd oft the procession and crawled through the fence Just as .lack-son and Baton came up. President Jackson stopped the carriage and spoku to her She bold up the baby and ho noticed that Its fnco was well covered with molasses. Ho seized the child and then hold ing It out Iwforo him said , "Madam , you linvu a tine 50n here , nnd ho may bo president of the United States some day. Ho will doubt less do credit to you , nnd his face Is a sweet 0110. " Ho thereupon thrust him towards " General "lOaton , and said , "Hero Eaton , you kiss him " and this tbo , secretary of war did , making the woman snillo with Joy. A MONTI ! OX TUB 1101 P.

A "part of tills old coach was In the hands of it southern planter some years ago , and ono of the pan els of the cream chariot which President Washington used Is in the national museum.

As presi dent ho spent most of hU time hero and at Moutlcello , iroiiiR from ono place to the other on horse back. Ho wns n good horseman , and ho often road about the country near Washington alouo. Madison did much the same , though ho always rode In hU coach to Montpelior. Ho took ono or two excursions down the Potomac , and It was left to Monrno to innko the xocoml gre.it presidential tour. Monroe visited New York und Now Kneland nnd ho Und a series of ovations from the be ginning to the close of his trip. Ho was well treated nt New York nud ho was the tirst president of the United States who visited Khodo Inland. Ho met old Jolur Adams at Boston and dined with him , and wont up to Portland. .Mu. , and then went as far west as Cleveland nud came back by way of Pitts- burg , Ho traveled more than three thousand inllos In Ills catrlagc , and hU tour was , per haps , the incut rcmorknblo that a president over niado. v JOHN qt'INCI ADAMS ANIl l.AMYETTr. . A now statue Is now being erected to Ln fayetto in Washington.

Ho was secretary-of state nt the time , The French republican , was received with honor everywhere find the country \runl wild over him. It was John Qulncy Adams who wns tha first president to travel on a rnilrond , out bis traveling was dona after bo loft tha presidency , nnd ha was In a railroad ncrldnnt In which two people want killed.

The day was bitterly cold and bomado his speech without an overcoat , catoblng , It Is said , at his Itiaupunratlon , a cold which aided In causing his death a few weeks later. rnEHinK.VTMXtoi.s's TOPIM. President Lincoln traveled somewhat whllo ho was In the white house , but Mis Ufa was too busy n ono for the ordinary presidential Junket. His first trip to Washington was made hy the Michigan Southern und Now York Central. Ho was received with Krcat respect everywhere , except nt Baltimore , where It was feared Iho southern sympathiz ers would mob him , and through which city it l.s said he xvcut dlspuiscd , Ho had n special train , and ho made DIs speeches from the baggage air. Andrew Johnson's tour was n speech-making ono. Ho was under the Inlluoncc of liquor during a part of It , nnd some of his utterances wore Injudicious In the oxtrcmo. Ho went nominally to lay the corncr-stonoof the Stephen A. Douglass mon ument nt Chicago , but ho traveled nil over the country to got thcro.tnklng In Now York , Philadelphia and Cleveland. Ilospohoavery- where , nnd hurt himself every tlino bo spoko. IIAVKS AND Tin : SOUTH. President Hayes was a great trav eler. " Ho was n constant fro- ( juontcr of Grand Army reunions , and his southern policy mndo tils southern toura very popular ono. Ho was accompanied by lending southerners , and ho received a great deal of priilso and taffy In the south. Ho wns ono or the greatest of the presidential travelers and did a great de.d moro traveling whllo in the white house thnn ho has done since ho loft It. It wns different with General Ornnt. Ho traveled but Httlo whllo president , going only now nnd then to Long Hrnnch or Now York , Ho started out on his tiIp around tbo world , however , Just nftor ho left the white house , nnd no man has over had such a tour as ( hat of hist around the world. All men-all nations tried to do him honor. Ho was received like a king , nnd ho formed an Intlmato acquaint' anci > with the greatest statesmen all the world over. Ho came back to the United States with many now Ideas of government , and had ho been re-olected president for n third term the country would have greatly profited hy the results of his experience and observations. ItOW I'OI.K WAS NOMIVATBII KOll I'HFSIDKST. ifaines 1C. Polk did not do a great , deal of traveling whilu In.the white bouso. Ills nomination was n. surprise to him and to nls friends. Colonel John Drownlow , n son of the famous lighting parson , tells me thorois a letter now In existence , written by Polk a few weeks before ho was nominated at Balti more. In this letter Polk writes to Andrew Jackson De-nelson , endeavoring to get the support of "Old Hickory" to make hint vlco I'lesklent. After stating his qualifications for the place , ho closes as follows : "I liopo the i'uimcMHCO delegation will exert Its In- llucncu In my behalf as tlio candidate for vlco piesidcnt. This has ) been the ambition of my life. Four years ago I desired the nomina tion , but I gave war to others , nnd now I hope my friends will support , me. " ' ThuTonnossuo delegation , " said Colonel Brownlow , "hud ntf idca of nmltlng Polk their candidate for the presidency , and their support of him ns vice president" was moix-ly nominal. The convention , however , did not know this. The friends or the other candi dates were fighting hard , nnd it was In ono of the bitterest of the struggles that merely to divert the attention of the convention. Major Douelson arose and nominated James K. Polk ns a candidate for the presidency. Donelson was .supposed to bo the inouth-plcco of 'Old Hickory , ' and the influence of An drew Jackson was such that this caused a st.lmpedo towards Polk , and he wns nomi nated. When Andrew Jackson heard of It ho wns not pleased. Ho had a contempt for Polk , because Polk would not light u duel with Henry A. Wise when ho pulled his nose during his stay In Washington us speaker of the house of representatives. " "What did Polk say us 16 bis nomination ! " f asked. "They tell a queer story concerning It In Tennessee , " replied Colonel Brownlow. "Tho news was announced to him by his brother , * William Polk , and James 1C. Polk would not bellovo it. William Polk was a much brighter man than James 1C. Polk. Ho was the Tom Corwln ot Tennessee in his flays , and was noted as n wng. He could toll stories by the yard , und President Lincoln , who know him well , was very fond of him. Ho was. ruined , however , D.V drinking , and It wns a curious thing that drink nmdo hLs fncp white rather than red. Ha drank a great deal , but ho bad no blossom on his nose. Well , William Polk was the first man to get the news of Jarncs 1C. Polk's nomination. Ho heard of it while fils brother was trying a potty ten-dollar Justice of the peace case in the town , and he. ciiino into tbo lawyer's ofilco and interrupted the trial , saying : ' * * Tlin lintrn hntiif1 flirt _ \ nit * natu fi rtm T r > 1 tlmore ! ' "Tho future president replied that ho had not. " 'Woll , Jim , the nomlnntionR are tnado mid I am blank blanked If you are not nomi nated for the presidency. ' "James 1C. folk laughed , and so did the rest of the crowd. They all thought it was ouo of Bill Polk's ' Jokes , but. they soon learned that It wns truth , nnd Polk made nn nctlvo canvass during the camp.iign. An drew Jnuluou helped him because ho wui the democratic uomtneo. Ho didn't ' lilco tbo pill , but he took it. " HOW I'OI.K WiS KlI.t.rlD. 'President 10111 wns killed by anxiety and hard work , " Colonel Brownlow went on. ' 'Ire ' was laid In lib grave by tha Mexican win1 , nnd in some way ho pot the Idea that the responsibility for that war rested unon him. Ho was conscience strlJlceii and felt himself responsible for the lives lost lit It. This frchng preyed upon him , and the anx iety and hard work connected with his posi tion brought him to his gravo.Vhon ho en tered the wblto hoiuo ho wns vaunt ; , straight , black-haired and about ttfty ycari of ago. When ho came out ho wns a stooped , wrin kled old man , whoso hair wns pray and whoso step \vi\t feeble. Ho went back to Nashville , and he died a few months after ho loft the presidency. " jiiiixsox'snKt.imov. . . "Polk was a Presbyterian , was ho not ! " said I. "No , " replied Colonel Brownlow. "ho was a Methodist , and I know the Methodist preacher wno baptised hitn. His wife was , a Presbyterian , nnd it Is probable that the statement tliat ho. was n Presbyterian him self , conies from that fitct. I often sec it stated that Andy Johnson was n Proiby- torlan. The fact Is ho wns an agnostic , r know him very well , and according to my understanding , ho wns Insidu n church only three times while lie wns president of the United States. The first time was nt the memorial services over President Lincoln in the senate chamber. Tlio second time was nt the memorial services of Colouel Elliot Dalrlurcn , and the third tlmo when Henry Ward Uoechor came to Washington. Boechor had como out in n sermon , nnd hail supported 'My pallor , ' R * * Johnson's ' policy was called. Boecncr bai received considerable criticism for this action , and when he came toV'aah - niRtou , n friend of the president called at. the white house and asked him to fro to the church to hear him preach. President John- Ron at llrst refused. But ho wa.s told it would not look well If ho did not go , for Heechrr had supported him , aud It wns only fair that no. should go and listen to Boechor. Ho then went. " KIUNK 0. CVIII'KNTEH. - < ; oiu.\rit'H ; nuii : > TAi. CIUAM. : on 31 VIJIOAI , iii.uruiin. : : : HrmnvtflTun.
