The President and Clea. Grant.
WASHINGTON, February ll.-T
President, in his letter to Gnu
opens: "The extraordinary characl
of your letter of the 3d would set
to preclude a reply; but the mann
in which publicity has been given
tho correspondence whereof that 1
ter forms a part, and the grave qa
tions iuvolved, induco this mode
giving a proper sequel to the comn
nications which have passed betwc
us. Statements of five members
tho Cabinet, who were present di
ing the conversation on tho 14th, a
copies of their letters to me, aro <
closed." Quoting from Grant's 1
ter, tho President says: "Whon
controversy upon matters of f
reaches a point to which this has b;
brought, farther assertion or der
between the immediate parties sho
cease, especially where on either s
it loses the character of respect
discussion, which is required by
relations in which the parties sb
to each other." After quoting ivgf
the President says: "The point
that before you changed your vic
you had secretly determined to
tho very thing which you at last
-surrender tho office to Mr. Stant
You may have changed your view.
I .to tba law, but you certainly did not
change your views as to the course j
you had marked . ont for yoursolf
from the beginning." Tho President
argues at some length the legality, of
his order to Grant to disregard Stan?
ton's orders, making the point that
Grant will not obey his direct orders,
bat will obejl uu> ibu ir cot orders, tho
President concludes: "Without fur?
ther comment upon tho insubordi?
nate attitude which you haye as
Burned, I am at a loss to know how
yon can relieve yourself from obedi?
ence to the orders of the President,
who is made by the Constitution the
Commauder-in-Chief -of the army
and navy, and is therefore the official
superior as well of the General of the
Army as of the Secretary of War."
The following is the President's
letter to the Secretaries present at
the 11th of January conversation:
"This morning's Chronicle contains
the correspondence between the Pre?
sident and Gen. Grant, reported
from the War Department, in answer
to a call from the House, which 'calls
attention to the cor resp on de nee-and
especially that part relating to the
conversations between Grant and the
President, and requests a statement
of what was said on that occasion."
Secretary Welles says: "My recol?
lection of the conversation corres?
ponds with yonr statement of it, in
your letter of the 31st January. The
three points specified in that letter,
giving your recollection of the con?
versation, are correctly stated."
Secretary McCulloch says: "I can?
not undertake to state tho precise
language used, but I have no hesita?
tion in saying that your account of
that conversation, as given in your
letter to Gun. Grant of the 31st, sub?
stantially and in all important parti?
culars accords with my recollection
Seoretary Randall says: "I hav?
read carefully tho correspondence ir
question, and particularly the lettei
of the President to Gen. Grant of th(
31st. The following extract fron
that letter is, according to my recol?
lection, a correct statement of thc
conversation that took place bet weer
the President and Gen. Grant, at th?
Cabinet meeting on tho 14th of Janu
arv." Randall then quotes the Pre
sidon t's version.
Seward's letter is quite long, giv
inga detailed account of his recoll?e
tion of what occurred, quoting tin
substance of what occurred. Se wan
says: "I did not understand Grant a
denying nor as explicitly adtnittinf
these statements in the form und ful
extent to which you made them. Hi
admission of them was rather indi
root and circumventive. I did no
understand it to bo an evasive one.'
Seward's letter caused shouts of alter
nate derision and incredulity fron
the Republicans,* as his cautious nar
rut iv i proceeded.
Secretary Browning's letter is alsi
quite long, and mainly a repetition.
Graut has already written a reply
opening as follows: "I have th
honor to acknowledge tho receipt o
your commnnication of the 10th inst,
accompanied by statements of fiv
Cabinet officers of their reooUectio;
of what occurred in Cabinet meetin
on the 14th of January. Wi thou
admitting anything contained i
these statements, where they di fie
from anything heretofore stated b
me, I propose to notice only thu
jrtion of your commumcatio
therein I am charged with insuhoi
dination." Grant then proceeds t
argue the point at some length.
