OI K LATE PRESIDENT.
1 invresting llemiuiseenres l»y a French
In tin* late number of 4he Revue des 1 >eu\
Moudes appeal's an interesting article nu
President Lincoln. The writer is M. AugusU-
Langel. who paid a visit to Washington some
months ago, and had several opportunities of
seeing the late President in private as well
as in public. He gives much information on
the condition ol the United States when the
war broke out, and on the career ot Mr. I.in
coin before and after his elevation to the Pres
idency: but the most attractive passages arc
those which are «»fa personal character. The
following scene, for instance, is graphically
sketched. The opening sentence allude# to
one of the old Kings of France, who is said
t<*have administered justice in the open air
iu the park of Vincennes :
“Come and see St. Louis under the oaks of ;
Vincennes,’ said Me C'harlesSummer one day I
to me. He told me mat the President opened j
once a week, no matter how pressing his oc
cupations, his Cabinet to all who desired to I
address a petition or claim to him. Wo set
out for the White House, and entered Mr.
Lincoln's Cabinet, where, without being an
nounced, we took our places with a dozen
people who were waiting for their turn. The
walls were covered with large maps repre
sentiog the divers places where the war was
going on. Over the chimney hung a portrait
ot President Jackson, the features dry and
harsh, and bearing the impress of extreme
energy. Over the marble 1 here was a photo
graph likeness, beautifully done—it was that
of John Bright, the eloquent defender of the
American Union iu the British Parliament,.
Through two spacious windows could I see
the white lines of tfle Potomac, the winding
uplands of Maryland,* and the half-hiddeu
obelisk of Washington standing iu sharp re
lief to the biue sky. Between the two win
dows stood a huge writing-table, before
which the President, was seated.
He did not perceive Mr. Surnnet being at
the moment, engaged in talking to ome peti
tioner, whom he dismissed soon after we
entered. The usher—who, by the wky, was
dressed like everybody' else—brought for
ward a woman She appeared to be in deep
affliction, and it was with difficulty that she
•could explain that her husband was a soldier
in the tegular army, that he had served for
a long term, and now asked for leave to quit
his regiment and return to support Ins lami
ly. She got more and more embarrassed as
she spoke. ‘ ‘Let me help you, ” said Mr.
Lineolu, kiudly, and thereupon he put ques
tions to her with the method and clearness
of a lawyer. On the luminous rectangle of
the^window, through which poured a flood
of sunshine, his profile appeared dark; with
the right hand he oftpn pushed up his hair,
which made it staud straight, or changed it
into disordered tufts. While he spoke all
the muscles of his face put in movement gave
an angular and strange contour to his head,
which had some semblance to that ot Me
pbistopbeles; but his voice had all the soft
ness ol the lather. After putting some ques
tions to the. poor woman, he said. “I can’t
hxygeltj grant you what you ask."
TKavo the r all thr nrm
ies of the Union,’ he added with aMrSHjpT
laugh, ‘but I cannot give a single soldier his
discharge. Only the Colonel of your hus
band's regiment can do what you want.’—
The woman deplored her poverty. She had
never, she said, suffered so much. ‘Madam,’
said Mr. Lincoln, deepening to a tone of slow
and impressive solemnity, 'I share your sor
row ; but remember that we, all of us as we
are, have never suffered what we now suffer.
We have all of us our burdens to bear!” He
then leant toward her, and for some time we
only heard the murmur of the two voices. I
saw him write a few words ou a piece of pa
per, and give to the woman ; he then dis
missed her with the forms of the most Scru
pulous politeness. The next who advanced
was a young man, who held out his baud to
the President, and said with a loud voice, 'ns
lbr me, I have come only to shake hands
with President Lincoln. ‘Much obliged, sir,’
said the President, offering his big band,
‘this is our day for business.’ ”
Mr. Lincoln, says M. Langel, possessed a
most lender and compassionate heart, and
one would say. he wore in hir, soul mourning
for all who perished during the terrible years
of his presidency. •
"A sadness which was almost superhuman
passed now and then over his brow, ou which
the wrinkles had deepened into furrows—on
tho.se strange features where the hearty laugh
of other days had become a sort of painful
grimace. 1 remember meeting the President
one evening toward nightfall. He was just
leaving the White House, and,according to his
habit was going to the War Office to get news.
There was noboby with Mm, though be had
often been'recommended not to go out alone;
but he despised danger and he had a horror of
constraint. With his plaid folded round him
against the cold, he moved slowly on, lost in
reverie, like a tall phantom. I was struck
with the pensive and suffering expression Os
his face. Agitation and anxiety bad gradually
bent, and at"last broken, that stout and rustic
nature, and worn the nerves of steel of the
giant,. For four long years be never knew
what an hour of repose was. Even his re
ceptions were horrible sufferings. W beu the
saloons of the White House were open, the
tide of visitors rolled on without stopping
before him. and liis big and honest hand
grasped all those that were held out to him.
The slave of the American people, he-vvas
condemned to stay at Washington when
everybody else had fled from its beat and
dust He only escaped m search of a little
verdure to the smiling slopes where the Pre
lideni s country-house is situated by the side
State keeps a few invalids since the Mexican
war In his walks he saw the beautiful
woods cut down to make room for the para
jets al ,d glacis of the forts; and at a short
distance was the large burial-ground, w heie
ten thousand graves, all • arranged m lines, •
were still fresh. 1 have seen amidst these
woods this city of the dead, with its long
parallels of alleys, Us ten thousand white
stones all alike, and each one marked with
the name of a soldier. One seems to pass in
review these interminable • rank?, the same
ness of which has something terrible- These

soldiers, who noK sleep in an order which
nothing will trouble more. Mr. Lincoln had
beheld young, vigorous and full of health 1"
While at Washington M. Langel had the
honor of an invitation to accompany Mr. Lin
coin, to see “Lear” performed, to Ford’s
play-house, and in the same box where he
was so soon after foully murdered.
“The Washington Theatre is small and in
a state of decay. You reach the President's
box*by an open passage behind the galleries,
and you had only to open a door and draw a
curtain to enter. The front of the box was
covered with a piece of red velvet, but the
interior was not covered with either cloth or
velvet. I was, as may be supposed, more oc
cupied with the President than the perform
ance. He. however, listened with attention,
though he knew the play by heart. He fol
lowed all the incidents oi it with the greatest
interest, and talked with Mr. Sumner and my
self only between the acts. His second son, a
a boy of 11. was near him, and Mr.Lincoln held
nim’on his lap nearly' the whole time, leaning
on him. and often pressed the laughing or as
tonished face of the child on hia broad chest.
To his many questions lie replied with the
greatest patience. Certain allusions of King
Lear to the sorrows of paternity caused a
cloud to pass over the President's brow, for
he had lost a young child at the White House,
and never was consoled, i may be pardoned
for dwelling on recollections so personal,
which, under other circumstances, I should
communicate only to a friend; for it was on
that very spot where I saw him with his child
and his friends, that death struck down one
so full of meekness, as gentle as a woman, as
simple as a child. It was there he received
the Parthian arrow of vanquished Slavery,
and fell, the noble victim of the noblest
Mr. Langel concludes his sketch with these
‘As always happens, the people, astound
ed by their sorrow, only now feel all they
have lost Condemned by the force of events
to become a groat man, Mr. Lincoln has gain
ed a glory which he never coveted. With
what larger joy he would lefused it if, at
sucli a price, he could have spared his coun
try the cruel trials from amid which his name
was slowly to rise. His glory will survive
many a gniidy and hollow renown. It will
give anew feature to that pure ideal which
places greatness in simplicity; which makes
power itend to the law; and which does not
separate liproism from self-denial. I should
say enough if i said that Mr. Lincoln was a
Christian statesman, taking the word in its
most sublime sense. He never thoUght ol'
himself; and so his own country and the
whole world will keep him in their Memory
