TIIK TEXT OF THE MUCH TLKEU
AIJOUT tETTKR OX THE
Tlie Army lu the Crisis of 1876.
A Tlieiighttiil Discussion of the Duty of Sol
diers Under the Law.
The follewinj; letter was written in re
ply te two letters en the situation received
from General Sherman :
CAr.exDi:i.ET P. O., St. Leuis,
December 28, 1870.
My Dear General : Your favor of the 4th
hist., reached me in New Yerk en the 5tb,
the day before I left for the West. I in
tended te reply te it before leaving, but
aires incident te my departure interfered.
Then again, since my arrival here I have
been se occupied with personal alFairs of a
business natute that I have deferred writ
ing from day te day until this moment,
and new I liud myself in debt te you an
other letter in acknowledgment of your
favor et the 17th, received a lew days since.
I have concluded te leave here en the 29th
(te-morrow) afternoon, se that I may be
expected in New Yerk en the 31st iust.
It has been cold and dreary since my arriv
al hoie. I have wuLcd " like a Turk" (I
presume that mean.? hard work) in the
country in making fences, cutting down
trees, repairing buildings, etc., etc., and
am at least able te s.ty that St. Leuis is
the coldest place in tli3 winter as it is the
hottest place in suuiau' of any that I have
encountered in a temperate zone. I hav
known St. Leuis in December te have ge
nial weather throughout the month ; this
December has been t'tigid and the river
has been frozen mere .solid than I have ever
When I heard the rumor that I was or
dered te the I'acilicceast I thought it prob
ably true, considering the past discussion
en that subject. The possibilities seemed
te me te point that way. Ilad it been true,
I should, of course, have presented no com
plaint nor made resistance of any kind. I
would have gene quickly,if net prepared te
go promptly. I certainly would have been
relieved from the responsibilities and anxi
eties cencernim; presidential matters.
which may fall te these near the throne or
in authority within the next four mouths,
as well as from ether incidents or matters
which I could net control and the action
concerning which I might net approve. I
was net exactly prepared te go te the Pa
cific, however, and I therefore felt relieved
when I received your note informing me
that there was no truth in the rumors.
Then I did net wish te appear te be escap
ing from responsibilities and possible dan
gers which may cluster around military
commanders in the East, especially in the
critical period fast approaching. " All's
well that ends well."
The whole matter of the presidency
seems te me te be simple and te admit of
a peaceful solution. The machinery for
such a contingency as threatens te present
itself has been all carefully prepared. It
only requires lubrication, owing te disuc.
The army should have nothing te de with
the selection or inauguration of presidents.
The people elect the president. The Con
gress declares in a joint session who he is !
We of the army have only te obey his
mandates, aud arc protected in se doing
only se far as they may be lawful. Our
commissions express that. I like Jeffer Jeffer
eon's way of inauguration ; it suits our
system. He rode alone en horseback te
the capitol (I fear it was the "old
capitol "), tied his herse te a rail fence,
entered and was duly sweru ; then rode te
the executive mansion and took possession.
He inaugurated himself simply by taking
the oath of office. There is no ether legal
inauguration in our system. The people
or politicians many institute parades in
honor of the event and public officials
may add te the pageant by assembling
tioeps and banners, but all that only
comes -properly after the inauguration
net before, and it is net part of it. Our
system docs net provide that one president
should inaugurate another. There might
be danger in that aud it was studiously
left out of the charter.
But you are placed in an exceptionally
important position in connection with com
ing events. The capitol is in my jurisdic
tion Alse, but I am a subordinate and net
en the spot, and if I were, se also would
be my superior in authority, for there is
the station of the gencral-in-chief. On the
principle that a regularly-elected presi
dent's tcim of office expires with the 3d of
March (of which I have net the slightest
doubt) and which the laws bearing en the
subject uniformly recognize, and in con
sideration of the possibility that the lawfully-elected
president may net appear
until the 5th of March, a great deal of re
sponsibility may necessarily fall upon you.
Yeu held ever. Yen will have power and
prestige te support you. The secretary of
war, tee, probably holds ever ; but if no
president appears be may net be able te
exercise functions in the name of a presi
dent, for his proper acts arc these of a
known superior a lawful president.
Yeu act en your own responsibility and
by virtue of a commission only restricted
by the law. The secretary of war is the
mouthpiece of a president. Yeu arc net.
If neither candidate has a constitutional
majority of the electoral college, or the
Senate and Heuse en the occasion of the
count de net unite in declaring some per
son legally elected by the people, there is
a lawful machinery already provided te
meet that contingency and decide the
question peacefully. It has net been re
cently used, no occasion presenting itself,
but our forefathers provided it. It has
been exercised and has been recognized
and submitted te as lawful en every hand.
That machinery would probably elect
Mr. Tilden president and Mr. Wheeler vice
president. That would be right enough,
for the law provides that in a failure te
elect duly by the people the Heuse shall
immediately elect the president and the
Senate the vice president. Some tribunal
must decide whether the people have duly
elected a president. I presume, of course,
that it is in the joint affirmative action of
the Senate and Heuse, or why are they
present te witness the count if net te sec
that it is fair and just? If a failure te
agree arises between the two bodies there
can be no lawful affirmative decision that
the people have elected a president, and
the Heuse must then proceed te act, net
the Senate. The Senate elects vice presi
dents, net presidents. Doubtless, in case
of a failure by the Heuse te elect a presi
dent by the 4th of March, the president of
the Senate (if there be one) would be the
legitimate person te exercise presidential
authority for the time being, or until the
appearance of a lawful president, or for the
time laid down in the constitution. Such
courses would be peaceful and I have a
firm belief, lawful.
I have no doubt Gov. Hayes would make
an excellent president. I have met him
and knew of him. Fer a brief period he
served under my command, but as the
matter stands I can't see any likelihood of
his being duly declared elected by the peo
ple unless the Senate and Heuse ceme te
be in accord as te that fact, and the Heuse
would, of course, net otherwise elect him.
What the people want is a peaceful deter
mination of this matter, as fair a determin
ation as possible and a lawful one. Ne
ether determination could stand the test.
The country, if net plunged into revolu
tion, would become poorer day by day ;
business would languish, and our bends
would come home te And a depreciated
I was net in favor of the military action
in Seuth Carolina recently, and if General
Itugcr had telegraphed te me, or asked for
advice, I would have advise him net under
any circumstances te allow himself or his
troops te determine who were the lawful
members of the state Legislature. I could
net have given him better advice than te
refer him te the special message of the
president in the case of Louisiana some
time before. But in Seuth Carolina he
had the question settled by a decision et
the supreme court of the state the
highest tribunal which had acted ou the
question se that his line et" duty seemed
even te be clearer than ie? the action in
the Louisiana case. If tlie federal court
had interfered and overruled the decision
of the state court there might have been
a doubt certainly, but the federal court
only interfered te complicate, net te decide
Anyhow, it is ue business of the army
te enter upon such questions, aud even if
it might be se in any event, if the civil
authority is supreme, as the constitution
declares it. te be, the Seuth Carolina case
was one in which the army had a plain
duty. Had General llugcr asked me for
advice, and if I had given, it I should of
course have notified you of my action im
mediately, se that it could have been
promptly overruled if it should have been
deemed advisable Ly you or ether superior
in authority. General Itugcr did net ask
for my advice and I inferred from that and
ether facts that he did net desire it, or that,
being in direct communication with my
military superiors at the seat of govern
ment who were nearer te him
in time aud distance that I was
he deemed it uncccssary. As
General Ruger had the ultimate respensi
bility el action aud had really the greater
danger te confront in the final action in the
matter I did net venture te embarrass him
by suggestions. He was a department
commander aud the lawful head of the
military administration within the limits
of the department; but, besides, I knew
that he had been called t; Washington for
consultation before taking command, and
was probably aware of the views of the
administration as te the civil affairs in his
command. I knew that he was in direct
communication with my superiors in au
thority in reference te the delicate sub
jects presented for his consideration, or
had ideas of his own which he believed te
be sufficiently in accord with the views of
our common .superiors te. enable him te
act intelligently according te his own judg
ment and without suggestions from these
net en the spot and net as fully acquaint
ed with the. facts as himself, lie desired,
tee, te be free te act, as he had the even
tual greater responsibility, and se the
matter was governed as between him and
As I have been writing thus freely te
you I may still further unbosem myself by
slating that I have net thought it lawful
or wise te use fcdeial troops in such mat
ters as have transpired cast of the Missis
sippi within the last few mouths, save se
far as they mav be brought into action
under the article of the constitution which
contemplates meeting armed resistance or
iuvasien of a state mere powerful than the
state authorities can subdue by the ordi
nary processes, and then only when re
quested by the Legislature, or, if it could
net bs convened in session, by the goi'crn gei'crn
u or, and when the president of the United
intervenes in that manner it is a state of war
nut peace. The army is laboring under
disadvantages aud has been used unlawful
ly at times in the judgment of the people
(in mine, certainly) and we have lest a
great deal of the kindly feeling which the
community at large felt for us.
It is time te step and unload. Officers
in command of troops often find it difficult
te act wisely aud safely when superiors in
authority have diucicul views of the law
from theirs and when legislation has sanc
tioned action seemingly in cenfiict with the
fundamental law, and they generally defer
te the known judgment of their superiors.
Yet the superior officers of the army are se
regarded in such great crises aud arc held
te such responsibility, especially these at
or near the head of it, that it is necessary
en such momentous occasions te dare te
determine for themselves what is lawful
and what is net lawful under our system.
If the military authorities should be in
voked, as might possibly be the case in
such exceptional times when there existed
such divergent views as te the correct re
result, the army will suffer from its past
action if it has acted wrongfully. Our
regular army has little held upon the affec
tions of the people te day, and its superior
officers should certainly, as far as lies in
their power, legally and with rightccus in
tent aim te defend the right, which te us
is THE law and the institution which they
represent. It is a well-meaning institu
tion, and it would be well if it should have
an opportunity te be recognized as a bul
wark in support of the rights of the people
and of the law. I am truly yours,

Louisiana Orders the Spoken
of a Soldier Who Saved
" If Washington Had Utcn in Hancock's
Place He Would Have Dene What
Patus, July 18.
Te the Editor of the World.
Sin : A cable despatch reached me at
Londen, whence I answered it mere briefly
perhaps than you expected, but I thought
intelligently enough. Your later despatch
which came te me here yesterday, I new
reply te by mail.
I inferred from your interrogatory
that some evil disposed persons had been
attributing te me the authorship of the
orders and letters issued by General Han
cock while he commanded in Louisiana
and Texas. My denial by telegraph was
intended te cover the whole ground. I
neither wrote these papers nor suggested a
Werd of them ; I had no precognition of his
views en the subject te which they re
late, and heard nothing from him about it
until he had taken the public into his con
fidence. Indeed, my personal acquaint
ance with him was then very slight, and
our relations net at all intimate. The
opinion that I would offer or he would re
quire my aid in producing such an order
asltisNe. 40 is absurd. His determina
tion te stand by the constitution and the
laws needed no expression but what he
could give it better than auy man alive.
It was net an argument, net an exposition
of the law, net an essay en the rights of
man that was wanted at that critical time.
The spoken act of a patriot soldier in high
command alone could -save civil liberty
from the destruction with which it was
threatened. That was what Hancock did,
and it was the timeliest lift that the great
cause ever get from any hand except that
I hope my admiration of the order in
question and the gratitude I have felt te
him for issuing it can be reasonably ac
counted without supposing that I framed.
or had any share in framing it. The belief
was general among the friends of constitu
tional liberty, and expressed by many
ethcrs as strongly as by me, that General
Hancock had done much, and done it
bravely, te rescue the nation and save it
alive, first fiera secessionists, and after
wards from the mere dangerous and mere
unprincipled oligarchy into whose hands it
fell after the war. At the date of his ser
vice in Louisiana the beau ideal of a
" strong government " was in full opera
tion at Washington, conducted by men
who claimed te be absolute masters of the
country. State rights, and, as a necessary
consequence, individual liberty, were
violently trodden down, and the constitu
tion which should have made us free was
habitually ever-ridden and insulted. What
these men called " the government" was
net only wondrous strong, but corrupt
beyond all example in modern times. Be
tween its force and fraud the people were
powerless, and their despair was aggra
vated by an indefinable dread that then hole
army might at any moment be used te sink
the nation into still further degradation, if
below that lowest depth a lower deep
could be reached. It was in these circum
stances that Hancock spoke out these
words of truth and soberness which reas
sured the friends of free government and
inspired them with new hope. AH who
were near enough te wateh the current of
that unequal contest between abso
lutism and law can remember hew the
enemies of the constitution were startled
and scared when they found that
the most brilliant general of the
Union had officially declared him
self opposed te their "savage policy."
They could net go upon him, nor send
upon him, nor in any manner destroy him,
for net only was the law of the land en his
side, but the army was found te be full tf
sympathy with its conspcuettsly gallant
and faithful leader. Se they were fain te
content themselves with harmless sneers
and petty persecutions. But they removed
him from the place where his devotion te
the constitution was specially interfering
with their schemes te subvert it. When
they made up their minds te strangle the
liberties of a state, te disperse a legal
Legislature by brute force, te inaugurate
for governor a shameless advcnturcr,knewu
te have been defeated at the polls, or te
pin the people down With bayonets while
they were plundered by alien thieves who
claimed te be their representatives and
officers, somebody else was employed te de
the infamous work. Still mere carefully
did they avoid his presence when the whole
nation was te be swindled at a presidential
election. It was for such reasons that the
heart of the country warmed te General
Hancock as its predestined deliverer.
It has often happened that the best
things of the greatest men arc attributed
te ethers who are wholly incapable of
them. The opinion was industriously
propagated and accepted as true that Ham
ilton wrote the Farewell Address of Wash
ington, but the evidence is conclusive
which shows that every word of that im
mortal production came from Washington
himself ; and Hamilton could net have
written it any mere than he could have
made a world. Seme of Jacksen's most
characteristic papers, bearing the full im
press of his own mind, were habitually
credited te persons of far iufcrier ability.
When it was charged against Jeffersen that
he wrote Legan's speech, he solemnly de
clared that he was unequal te such a corn
position. I am net affecting modesty
when I claim credence of my present de
uial for a similar reason. I could net have
written Hancock's Ne. 40 net because I
pretend te lie dumb or altogether unskill
ed in the use of English words, but be
cause if I had undertaken te write it tlie
chances are ninety-nine in a hundred that
my argumentation would have marred its
majestic simplicity and greatly diminished
its power. AVhcn a public man, especially
a military man, meets a grave responsi
bility, saying no mere nor less than the
thing he ought, but saying it with unequiv
ocal clearness, you may be sure he is the
interpreter of his own thoughts. At any
rate, the attempt is unjust te bastardize
Ne. 40 by assigning te it an origin totally
different from the tine one.
Why should my opinion be asked or
volunteered en General Hancock as a civil
ian? Anybody else who has watched his
life is as geed a judge as I, and there are
thousands who knew him much better.
But since the question is propounded I
will answer, subject te fair correction,
that he has in him the highest and best
qualities of a republican ruler. I think
his fidelity te sound principles, coupled
with his sound judgment, will entitle him
te rank well with the great presidents of
former times. I de net compare him
with Washington, for the grandeur of that
character is and will remain forever unap
proachable, but I de say that Washington,
if placed in his situation, would have
acted precisely as he did. His patriotism
has net the impulsive ardor of Jacksen's,
but his fidelity te the truth, his love of
justice and his scorn of wrong, are quite
as unmistakable. He is net a doctrinaire
like Jeffersen, for his busy life has left him
no time te study the abstract philosophy
of politics, but his practical geed sense
knows the right intuitively and always
catches the nearest way te de it. If he be
elected, the ability of his administration
will inspire universal respect, and his mod
eration and magnanimity will conciliate
even his enemies. I have the fullest faith
that he will net only keep his oath te pre
serve, protect and defend the constitution,
but will se carry out its previsions that the
great objects of its framers as expressed in
the preamble will be fully accomplished
"Te form a mere perfect union, te estab
lish justice, te insure domestic tranquillity,
te provide for the common defense, te pro
mote the general welfarr,and te secure the
blessings of liberty te ourselves and our
