: :' ' '. ' " From an Ezchango.
. ' Thero tre very many Demacrats who be
lloro that their party could nominate
Crocijrer candidate for president than Gen
eral Winfleld Scott Ilancock, the ranking
Major-General of the army. He possesses
th advantage of undoubtedly ability, of
a conspicuously distinguished record, and
almost unbounded popularity wherever ho
is known. He is prudent, sincere, conserr
ative end inflexible iq his loyalty to princi
ples approved by his judgment. In any
position to which he might bo called he
would do his wholo duty.
General Hancok is a native of Pennsyl
vania having been bom in Montgomery
ounty,in that state, on the 14th of Febru
ary, 1824. He graduated at West Point
;n 1844, aud served mainly on frontier duty
until 1840, and afterwards in the war with
Mexico, being breveted as first lieutenant
for gallant and meritorious conduct in the
battles of Contreras and Cherubusco. From
1849 to 1855 he was again employed in
lronticr dutv. and from 1855 to 18C1 was
Quartermaster of the southern district of
California. In August of the latter year
he was recalled to Washington, and when
the army of the Potomac was
transferred to tho Peninsula
in 1862, he was already a
Brigadier-General, with the appropriate
command, in the Fourth corps. His first
opportunity to make a mark occurred at
Williamsburg, and he made a brilliant one.
He next distinguished himself in the bat
tle of Frazer's farm, and subsequently
took an active part in the campaign in
Maryland, at the battles of South Moun
tain and Antietam. Being made a major
general, he commanded a division at Fred
ericksburg and Chancellorsville. At Get
tysburg he did magnificent work. On the
first day of the battle, July 1, 1803, he was
sent by General Meade to decide whether
a decisive battle should be given. He re
ported that Gettysburg wa9 the place to
fight, and took immediate command until
the arrival of Meade. In the decisive ac
tion of July 3d, he commanded on the left
center, sustaining the terrinc onset ot
Longstreet's confederates, and being
severely wounded. The thanks of con
gress were formally tendered him for his
conduct in these engagements. Being dis
abled by his wounds, he was on sick leave
until March, 18C4, being meanwhilo en
gaged in recruting the Second army corps,
winch was placed under his command. At
the opening of the campaign of that year
under General Grant, he took the active
command of this corps, and bore a promi
nent part in the battles of the Wilderness,
Spottsylvania Court house and North Anna,
the second battle of Cold Harbor, and the
operations around Petersburg, until June
19th. when, his wound breaking out atresh,
he was for a short time on sick leave. He
afterwards resumed command and partici
pated in several actions, until November
26th, when he was called to Washington to
organize the first corps of veterans.
Tbe name of every great battle in ti;e
east is inscribed on Hancock's flags. After
the close of the war he was placed suc
cessively in command of the middle de
partment, the department of Missouri, of
Louisiana and Texas, of Dakotah, and of
the department of the east. He has his
headquarters on Governor's island. In the
Democratic national convention of 1868 he
received 144 votes for the presidential
nomination. In 1876, in the national con
vention of the same party, he received 75
votes for the same nomination. He is now
supported by the Democrats of Pennsyl
vania, Texas and some eastern states, aud
will be strongly urged m the Cincinnati
General Hancock has uniformly main
tained the doctrine that the military power
should in time of peace be subordinated to
the civil law. This was particullay shown in
his address to the court inquiry constituted
to try Gereral Babcock, in 1873, in which
he urged that that officer having been
formally indicted at St. Louis, it was right
and proper that the military inquiry should
be adjourned in order that the ordinary
civil processes might take their course
which suggestion was duly adopted. In
1803, while in command of the Fifth mili
tary district, General Hancock, in a letter
to Governor Pease, said: "On them
(the laws of Texas and Louisi
ana), as on a foundation of rock, reposes
almost the entire structure of social order
in these two states. Annul this code of
laws, and there would be no longer any
rights, either of person or property, here. I
say, unhesitatingly, if it were possible that
congress should paes an act abolishing the
local codes for Louisiana and Tcxas,which I
do not believe, and it is should fall to my
lot to supply their places with something
of niv own, I do not see how I could do
better than follow the laws in force here
prior to the rebellion, excepting wherein
they shall relate to slavery. Power may
destroy the forms, but not the principles, of
justice; these will live in spite of the
General Hancock is a man of handsome
presence and most agreeable manners. He
is pertectly straight, a blonde, with a rich
skin and blue eyes, and light hair, now
turniu!' gray; and his address is both
courtly aud simple.
General Hancock, while a citizen oi
Pennsylvania, is in almost all respects ot
fellowship and association a New Yorker.
He is on excellent terms with the leading
volunteer officers of the New York militia,
and co-operates with them in their parades,
shooting-mates, etc. He is a favored
guest at the houses of some of the
best people in JNcw lork, hut makes
no pretension to wcaitti or style, tne
regard of his men fur him is boundless.
While he would, pcrhup, draw as many
votes in New "York as any Democrat, he
would poll an immense vote in Pennsyl
vania, for he is not repugnant to the good
sense and feeling of the Republican sol
diery, having never stepped out ot the course
of conviction to recommend himself to oue
party or the other. As to the imputation
that ho hanged Mrs. Surratt, it will be of
no effect except among the most igno
rant and unreasoning. When the comman-der-in-chiet
of the military and navy forces
had been uBsasxinatcd by persons living
within the military lines of the United
States, it would scarcely have been a gal
lant example for General Hancock to have
pulled off his sword in deference to such ob
jects, instead of carrying out tho tribunal,
imposed on him by his oath and by Presi
