Whereas,In the month ot July, A. D.^1361, tlie two Houses ot Congress, with^extraordinary unanimity, solemnly de^^clared that the war then existing was^not waged on the part of the Govern^^ment in any spirit of oppression, nor for^my purpose of conquest or subjugation,^nor tor Um purpose ot overthrowing or^interfering w'th the rights or establish^^ed institutions ot any States ; but to de^^fend and maintain the supremacy ot the^constitution and preserve the Union,^with all the dignity and equality and^rights of the several States unimpaired ;^and that so soon as these objects should^be accomplished the war ought to cease.^Whereat, The President of the United^States, on the 8th day of December,^1863, and the 26th day of March. 1864,^did, with the object of suppressing the^then existing rebellion, andot inducing^all persons to return to their loyalty and^^jf restoring the authority of the United^StatK. issue a proclamation offering am^nesty and pardon to all persons who had^directly or indirectly participated in the^then existing rebellion, except an in those^proclamations was specified and reserv^^ed. And whereon, the President of the^United States did, on the 29th day ot^May, A. D. 1865, issue a further proclam^^ation, with the same objects before men^^tioned, and to the end that the author^^ity ot the government of the United^States may be restored, that peace, order^and freedom might be established ; and^the President did by the said last men^^tioned proclamation proclaim and de^clare that he thereby granted all per^^sons who had directly or indirectly par^^ticipated in the then existing rebellion,^except as therein excepted, amnesty and^pardon, with restoration to all rights^and property except to slaves^except in^certain cases where legal proceeding^had been instituted; but upon condi^^tion that such persons should take and^subscribe an oath therein prescribed,^which oath should be registered tor per^^manent preservation: and tchercas, in^and by said last mentioned proclamation^ot the 2d ot May, I860, fourteen classes^ot persons, therein specially described,^were altogether excepted and excluded^trom the benefits thereof: Whereas,^The President ot the United States did,^on the 2d day of April, 1866, issue a pro^^clamation declaring that the insurrec^^tion was at an end and was thenceforth^to be so regarded : and whereas, there^now exists no organized, armed resist^^ance ot misguided citizens or others to^the authority of the United States in^the States of Georgia, South Carolina,^Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee,^Alal^ama, Louisiana, Arkansas, Missis^^sippi, Florida and Texas, and the laws^can be sustained therein by proper civil^authority. State or Federal, and the peo^^ple of said States are well and loyally^disposed, and have conformed, and it^permitted to to do. will conform in leg^^islation to the conditions ot affairs grow^^ing out of the amendment to the consti^^tution prohibiting slavery within the^limits of the jurisdiction of the United^States; .a,d whereas, there no longer^e\i-ts aay reasonable danger to appre^^hend within the States which were in^^volved in the late rebellion, any unlaw-^tul resistance by the people ot said States^to the constitution and laws of the Uni^^ted States ; and whereas, as large stand^^ing armies, militarv occupation, martial^law, iuilii mil the suspen

I do solemnly swear or affirm in pres^^ence of Almighty God that 1 will hence^^forth support, protect and defend the^constitution and the Union of these^States thereunder, and that I will in like^manner abide and faithfully support all^laws and proclamations which have^been made during the late rebellion with^reference to the emancipation of slaves,^so help me God.
Thefollowing and no others are ex^^cluded from the benefit of this proclam^^ation ; and the said proclamation of the^29th of May, 1865, namely : First, the^chief or pretended chief executive offi^^cers, including the President, Vice Pres^^ident, all heads of departments of. the^pretended confederate or rebel govern^^ment, and all who were agents thereof^in foreign States and countries, and, all^who had or pretended to hold, in theser-^vice of said pretended confederate gov^^ernment a military rank or title al ove^the grade of Brigadier General, and na^^val rank or title above that of Captain,^and all who were or pretended to be^Governors of any State while maintain^^ing, abetting or submitting to and acqui^^escing in the rebellion. Second, all per^^sons who in any way treated otherwise^than as lawful prisoners of war persons^who in any capacity were employed or^engaged in the military service of the^United States. Third, all persons who^at any time they may seek the benefits^of this proclamation are actually in civil,^military or naval confinement, or held^to bail before or after conviction, and all^persons who were engaged directly or^indirectly in the assassination of the late^President of the United States, or in any^plot or conspiracy in any manner con^^nected therewith.
Intestimony whereof 1 have signed^these presents with my hand and have^caused the seal of the United States^to be thereunto affixed.
Doneat the city ot Washington on the^7th dav of September, 1867.^(Signed) ANDREW JOHNSON,
den.Grant'! Lftiorio the President.
ffT11rp/MWii Army of the U. 8.,)^Washington, Aug. 17, 1867. f^Hi* Excellency, Andrew Johnson, Presi^^dent of the United State* :^Sir : I am in receipt of your order of^this date, directing me to appoint Gen.^G. H. Thomas to the command of the^Fifth Military District, General Sheridan^to the Department of the Missouri, and^Gen. Hancock to the Department of the^Cumberland, and also your note of this^date, enclosing these instructions to car^^ry into effect the enclosed orders :
I would be pleased to hear any sug^^gestions you may deem necessary re^^specting the assignments to which the^order refers.
Iam pleased to avail myself of the in^^vitation to urge, earnestly urge, in the^name ot a patriotic people whohav* sac^rificed hundreds of thousands of hves-^and thousands of millions of treasure to^preserve the integrity and union of this^country, that this order be not insisted^upon. It is unmistakably the expressed^wish ot the country that General Sheri^^dan should not be removed from his^present command. This is a Republic,^where the will of the people is the law of^the land. I beg that their voice may be^heard.
GeneralSheridan has performed his^civil duties faithfully and intelligeatly.^His removal will only be regarded as an^t tb rt to defeat the laws of Congress. It^will be interpreted by the unreconstruct^^ed element South^those who die all^they could to break up the Government^by arms, and now wish to be the only^element consulted as to the method of^restoring order^as their triumph. It^will embolden them to a new opposition^to the will of the loyal masses, believing^that they have the Executive with them.^The services of General Thomas, in bat-^tleing for the Union, entitle him to tome^consideration. He has repeatedly en^^tered his protest against being assigned^to relieve Gen. Sheridan. Gen. Hancock^ought not to be removed from where he^is. His Department is a complicated^one, which will take a new commander^some time to become acquainted with.^There are military reasons, pecuniary^reasons, and, above all, patriotic rea^^sons, why this order should not be in^^sisted on. I beg to refer to letter mark^^ed ^ private,^ which I wrote to the Pres-^det when first consulted on the subject^of the change in the War Department.^It l^ears upon the subject of this re^^moval, and I hoped would have pre^^vented it.
Ihave the honor to be, with great re^^spect, your obedient servant,
U.8- Grant,^General United State* Army and Secre^^tary of War, ad interim.
TheNew York Gazette says : ^ A gen^^tleman of this city, who knows Charles^Reade. says that the author of ' Griffith^Gaunt' has a habit of clipping from^newspapers all sorts of paragraphs^^hair breadth escapes, strange accounts of^crime, bits of wit, bits of wisdom^and^pasting them in a scrap-book. When he^gets ready to write a new story he goes^over his scrap-book in search of ' good^things.' furbishes up the crimes and ac^^cidents, re-dresses the wit and wisdom,^and weaves all into his narrative with^his own wonderful skill.
