PRESIDENT BUCHANAN. Has a natural ring to it, doesn't it? It should. There was one, as Pat Buchanan knows. In fact, a holiday trip connected to that fact -- one you can take, too -- may have inspired Pat to ponder running against George Bush.The president I'm talking about is James Buchanan, the first Democrat ever to run against a Republican candidate for president.That was in 1856. Buchanan was a Pennsylvanian who had been secretary of state and ambassador to Great Britain. In 1856, Democrats nominated him to run against the new Republican Party's nominee, John C. Fremont, an explorer of the West and California's first senator -- and an opponent of slavery.

James Buchanan, 77, a Miami Herald reporter who was jailed by Fidel Castro in the Cuban leader's first year in power, died Saturday in Miami of a stroke. He was 77. In 1959, Mr. Buchanan was arrested after he interviewed and gave supplies to an American mercenary who was being sought by Mr. Castro's revolutionary government. He was tried and sentenced to 14 years in prison but was freed 12 days later on the condition that he never return to Cuba. He was part of the Herald team that covered the failed Bay of Pigs invasion in 1961.

Anyone for waterfalls? During a summer Sunday's family drive, the stream that goes over a cliff -- cool, sparkling, photogenic -- is more than worth a stop-off. And if Pennsylvania has 184 spread-out falls, and New Jersey 30-plus, Maryland's seven are nonetheless among the best. This on the authority of Gary Letcher of Ashton, in his book Waterfalls of the Mid-Atlantic States (Countryman, 245 pages, $17.95). An outdoorsman and an environmentalist, Letcher writes for beginners and experts alike.

Comparing the 40 individuals who have reached the presidency,one is struck less by what they have in common than by their differences.Consider education. George Washington, Zachary Taylor, Andrew Jackson, Millard Fillmore, Abraham Lincoln and Andrew Johnson had no formal schooling, while Harry Truman had only a public-school education. This is hardly surprising considering the few centers of higher education in the earlier days of the republic.On the other hand, two-thirds of our presidents were college graduates or had some college education.

The six Jameses are tops, followed by five Johns and now four Williams.But a closer look at the nation's 41 presidents (counting Stephen Grover Cleveland only once)

ON her first visit to the White House, the president's mistress said that her lover had taken her ''to the one place where, he said, we might share kisses in safety. This was a small closet . . . [where] we repaired . . . many times in the course of my visits to the White House, and in the darkness of a space of no more than five feet square the president of the United States and his adoring sweetheart made love.''Is this a leak from the tapes in which former White House intern Monica Lewinsky purportedly told all about her alleged affair with President Clinton?

Sometime this spring, the White House will hang the only item it bought at Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis' estate auction last year: an 8-by-10-inch pen and ink drawing of a pre-Civil War presidential event titled "Miss Lane's Reception."The White House Curator's Office is not sure which reception is pictured in its drawing, purchased for $14,000. It really doesn't matter. All of Miss Lane's receptions were, in a sense, historic, and certainly deserve to be honored in the White House. So does Miss Lane, for her life and her many other accomplishments.

Stick to CowsI wish Peter Jay would concentrate his journalistic efforts on his cows rather than on his politics.His charming articles on the pleasures and problems of being a farmer, his intensely humane attitude toward his animals, are hard to reconcile with his tired and somewhat aimless political sarcasm (example: the Janet Awards) so sadly reminiscent of H.

Mencken in his final decline.Please, Mr. Jay, tell us more about your livestock and less about your political foibles!Louise ArmstrongRuxtonPennsylvania CloutA more complete search by Theo Lippman of Pennsylvanians running for president (Nov.
