day. The correspondenoe, however, with
Grnt, which is epicy and interesting, will not
be made pblic for some time. It was read
in the Cabinet meeting. It appears that Grant,
immediately on hearing of order No. 10, tele
graphed him to modify iteo as not to obstruct
the process of the courts. Sicklee replied by
asking that the order of smpervision be held in
abeyance until he could explain by mail.

WnasrxwroN, Sept. 6.-Sickles' letter to
Grant was written before the publication of
the Attorney General's opinion. It is very
lengthy. He says the charge that he made
issue with the Supreme Court and defed its
decrees is utterly unfounded, but it subordi
nate functionaries of the court choose to ex
ecute functions they must be controlled, or
the military authority established over thess
States is defed. The issue is made ostensibly
with the military commander, but really, with
Congrees. The same reason that induced him
to stay the collection of debts in the State
coursts applied equally to cases in all courts.
He believes that Congress, intending to secure
the restora4n of these rtates to the Union,
made all other considerations subsidiary to
this, and the process of the courts must not
be allowed to override the order Congress em
powered him to make for its measures. Sick
s says he had never received any intimatioa,
directly or indirectly, that his superiors in
authority differed with him. This opinion,
he sys, will allow the oourts to authorise the
functions of this military district, and a wide
