THE MONTANA POST, SATURDAY, JULY 6, 1867.
SATURDAY,J I L. V 6, 1867.
Gen.Butler has been moved to write^a letter in reply to newspaper para^^graphs. He refers to his charge and at^^tempts an explanation as to the pardon^^ing of deserters from a West Virginia^regiment, and then continues :
It iu true that the War Department^order restoring these men is not dated^till the 25th of November, thirty days^after the election ; but the President's^order was dated before the election, and^the Department took thirty days to in^^vestigate the case of one man of the 193^who was proved to have deserted to the^enemy, and then obeyed the Executive,^order as to the 192, so that no thanks are^due Mr. Johnson that all these deserters^were not restored before the election, as^he had ordered to be done, without in^^vestigation, thereby taking $75,000 from^the tand appropriated to disabled sol^^diers and giving it to the deserters and^claim agents. These facts no truthful^person has contradicted anywhere.^Again let me examine the assertion that^the story that 18 pages had been taken^from Booth's diary is also an invention.^Booth's diary has been before- the Com^^mittee, and 18 pages are carefully cut^out, being the pages down to the ^^^^^^sanation. The only question I raised^was when and by whom were these^leaves cut out^ Booth, while hunted^for his life through swamps and byways^after the assassination, would hardly^have leisure tor such amiseinetH, be^^sides, oo horseback, w ith one leg brokfen,^it might be difficult to get a ruler or^straight edge by which to trim the^leaves as nicely at it is done. Eterv-^thing taken from his person was put in^evidence on the trial ot Mrs. Surratt,^even to a bill of exchange taken out of^this same diary, except this diary itself^and a valuable diamond pin which he^wore. These alone were kept back.^Why cannot eighteen leaves of the diary^and the (^in now bo found^ Until those^having had the custody of the articles^taken from the body can account for all^of them, I must be excused from believ^^ing the testimony that articles are all^now in the same condition as when found.^If the witness can be found who has got^the pin, }k*rhapa he can tell us who has^the missing leaves. Upon the whole,do^you really think that the missing leaves^are an invention
Asmy band is in, perhaps it will be^well to look up the origin of the phrase^which inventive persons have appropri^^ated to themselves. Your article says^General Butler must be more careful or^he'll get bottled up again.^ True, he^may be. in the same way as before. In^May, 1804. when operating against Rich^^mond and Petersburg, Gen. Butler re^^ceived orders from Gen. Grant to send^away all the troops he could with safety^spare to reinforce the army of the Poto^^mac on the Peninsula, then about to^fight the battle of Cold Harbor. In obe^dience thereto Gen. Butler sent General^Grant 17,000 picked men of the 25,000^effective men, including the black troops,^then under (Jen. Butler's command ;^whereupon Gen. Butler complained that^the necessities of the Army of the Poto^^mac had bottled him up in Bermuda^Hundred. That complaint was repeated^about his headquarters, and in these very^words will be found to have been pub^^lished in the correspondence from thence^of the New York Time* of that date.^Eighteen months afterward Gen. Grant^incorporates these words in a grave offi^^cial report without giving, as I have^done, a reason for their pertinency, and^the phrase thus used by him was deemed^a scintillation of genius. The inventor^did not think as highly of his own pro^^duction. However, even a borrowed^rushlight shines widely in a thick mist.
Krsjectfully, your ob'd't serv't.

Thedirectors of the Western Union^Telegraph Company, at a meeting held^on the 5th instant, unanimously resolved^to accept the provisions of the National^Telegraph law, passed by Congress, and^directed that the necesaary notices be^filed with the Postmaster General imme^^diately. By this action the Government^will acquire the right to purchase the^company's lines and property atavalua^tion to be determined by the commis^^sioners chosen, two by the company, two^by the United States, and one by the^other lour, whenever Congress shall de^^cide to make the telegraph a part of the^postal system. The company also ac^quires the right to build and maintain^lines along all railroads and highways in^the United States, which have been, or^shall hereafter be, declared to be post^roads, and over all public lands, without^charge. It has been claimed that the^law above referred to gave these impor^^tant privileges excluMvely to another^company. This is a mistake. Its pro^^visions are general, and the Western^Union Telegraph Company owns or con^^trols nearly all the lines in the country.^Whatever value they possess must be^greater to that company than to any^other. This action cannot fail to exejt^an important and beneficial influence on^the interest of telegraph companies. If^the Government shall, hereafter, decide^to take the entire, or even partial, con^^trol of the telegraph business, it will^undoubtedly purchase or arrange for the^use of the lines and property of this com^^pany, which, it is claimed, could not now^be duplicated for a much larger sum^than is represented by the present price^of the stock.

MrScmxer has published a long^pamplet concerning- the Russian Posses^^sion*, the climate, soil, productions, in^^habitants, early history, history of the^purchase, ^c. It appears that negotia^^tions tor the purchase of this country^were begun during Jaines Buchanan's^administration. They came to nothing,^and were brought to an end by the break^^ing out ol the rebellion.
Thepopulation is fixed by Sumner as^follows : Russians and Creoles, 2,500 ;^aboriginals under the government of the^fur company, 8.000 ; Esquimaux, 18,000;^Aleutians, 8.000; Kennians, 2o.000 ; Kal-^achians. 4.000; total 59,000. Trees are^the principal vegetable production. Bar^^ley grows well; oats partially ; wheat,^rye and corn very slightly. Coal is chief^of the mineral products; but gold ard^copper have been found in small ^juanti-^tities, and iron, silver and lead are re^^ported. Mr. Sumner proposes Alaska as^the name for our new country.
