WHAT CAMKRON'S LETTER TO GENERAL

Tho solvation ol the hour at the
IN*orth is tho doclnrod purpoao of tho
Grant Administration, by tho nso ol
tho army, to prevent the States in the
South which, in the past, have given
largo Republican majorities, from
being carried thin fall by the Demo
ciacy. The Washington correspondent
of the Jiulliiuoro Sun, speaking
of Camoron'a letter to Sherman,
I oftye:
It is understood that fho lotter,
1 which, as ata'od by the Secretary of
War, is written by direction of the
President, v>as matured in cabinet
deliberation. Before finally complete
iiit tlio Secretary of War had an
interview with tlio President this afternoon.
It will bo seen that it is
now proposed to go further than over
before in tlic inattor of using the

there aro now Republican Executives,

that tho contingency is con

ot their own authorities. Tho Pre

COMMENTS OF THE LEADING JOUUNAL8.
Tho Republican papers have very
littlo to say in regard to the letter ol
Secretary of War Cameron to Gon.
Sherman, directing him to hold all
hih available troops for n?e in the
South. Kvon tho New York Times
has not a word of commendation or
censure for tho letter. Democratic
and independent papers, howevor,
in /?Anrlnni nnt Inn nf
ffrl KJ V/IIVO j'vnvn iii v*
tho order. Tho Now York Ilornld,
Independent, says:
It is oxpcctcd that t'.ie five rogimentfl
to bo used in the South will
curry four of tho Honthorn States by
w hipping tlie negroes into lino who
havo oithor become liatlcs3 in politioa
or wnndored oft" to tho Doinocraoy,
and by terrifying tho ''fiondish" whito
linora into eubjoction. By keeping
tho outrage mill slowly grinding, ana
sending platoons of cavalry hithor

revive tho bitterness whieh bus boon
rapidly disappearing botsvoon tho

Tho order of Socretary Catuorou
to God. Sherman ia worth tho careful
at tout ion of ovory American citizen.
It is an order to hold all tho
troops not absolutely required for
Indian aervico, in roadinoss to movo.
As everybody knows, there is no war
nor rumor ot war, foreign or domes**
tic, in tho country, there is no legitimate
nso for troops any whore in tho
country. What this oulor mouna,
and all it can moan, is that tho ad
ministration moans to uso troops to
prevent froo elections in tho youthen)
States. It was a cowardly trick
to hold back Hiich an order until tho
adjournment ot (Jongross, and thou
issue it. It will do the administration
no good and tho Kepublioau
party no ^uod. Tho oxocutiou of it
would do both great mischief. Tho
