" War Department, Washington, January 33, 1847. " Sir: I deem it proper to send to you a letter (taken from a newspaper) which first appeared in .he" New York Morning Express," and has since, as a matter of course, been iranslerred to many other journals. I learn from General Gaines that the letter is genuine Tin's informa tion, I am assured, he had previously giv en to others. As the letter was not mark ed " confidential," he adjudged that cir cumstances existed which justified the publication of some part of it, though he expresses an opinion that it was not written wiih such a vii'w. " It will in a short time be in possession of our enemyand coming, as it does, from the General lo whom .he. conduct of the war, on our part, was confided, it will convey most va'uable" information to the Mexican Commander, not only in relation to our present line of operations, but as to the new one, which alone in your opin ion, can be taken with a prospect of suc cess, if an attempt is to be made on the city of Mexico. "The disclosure of your views as to ' the future operations of our forces, accom- panied, as it is. w ith your opinion tha. the fiuits of the war, if completely successful, will be of little worth to us, will, it is gieat ly to be feared, not only embarrass our sub sequent movements, but disincline the ene my to enter into negotiations for peace. With particular reference-to these effects, the publication is most deeply to be re-giettcd. The 650th paragraph of the. General Keglations 1, 1825, dec icporls relative to military marches and operations are frequently mischievous in design, and always disgraceful lo the army. They are therefore strictly forbidden, and any officer found guilty of making such .eport for(pubIication, without special per mission, or of placing the writing beyond his control, so lhat it finds iis way to the press, within one month after the .termi nation of the campaign to which it relates, shall be dismissed from service. This paragraph was not included in the the least, is rather harsh, and which manv tnaiy think not warranted by the premises. Again : I have carefully examined the letter in question, and 1 do not admit that it is obnoxious to the objection urged in your communication. I see nothing in it which, under the same circumstances, I would not write again. To suppose that it will give the enemy valuablo informs-, lion touching our nasi or prospective line of operations, is to know verv little of the Mexican sources ol information, oi of their extraordinary sagacity and facility of keeping constantly apprised of our mover ments. . " In conclusion, I would say that it has given me great pain o be brought into the position in which I now find myself with regard to the Department of War and the Goverment. It has not been of my own .. . , seeking. To the extent ol my ability,: and the means placed at my disposal, I. have sought faithfully to serve the country, by carrying out the wishes and instruc--lions of the Executive.' But it cannot be concealed that since the capitulation of v Monterey the confidence of the Depart men., and I too much fear of the Pres.-. dent, has been gradually withdrawn, and my consideration and usefulness corres. pondingly diminished. . The apparent de termination of the Department to place me ' in an attitude antngonistical to the Govern- ment has an apt illustration in the well -known fable of Esop. But lasjt no faror. and I thrink from no rtsponnbUitu. While entrusted with the command in this quarter I shall continue to devote air my energies to the public good, looking for ray 5 reward to the consciousness of pure mo? lives and the final verdict of impartial his tory. i -.; " I am, sir, very respectfully your obe dient servant.
