Mr. Stanton then noticed, with great surprise, that the President sat with an air of dignity in his chair instead of lolling about in it in the most un gainly attitudes, as bis invariable custom was j and that instead of telling irrelevant or questionable stories, he was grave and calm, and quite a differ ent man. ?
