A few days' ago we mentioned the arrest and commitmei t to jail of two women and a negro girl for stealing iron from the railroaJs. One of the women,' it will be remembered, was the widow of a soldier killed early in the war. We' have waited to see if the super-loyal of our citizens would do anything for tilts woman; It the G. A. R, whose only 'mis sion is charity for their comrades aud their widows and orphans, and who "don't take the first darned politic in thelrn," would rush forward, by brigade, by battalion, hy company, by platoon, by section, by rquad, or , individually, . and assist this starving family 1 We have waited expectantly, we say, for a rush.- Our verdict is that tin y tloirt rush worth a cent. Several roars ago when the Government wanted men when the flag was below par, and patriot- ism stood at a premium when rich men quaked,wlth fear that their sons would bt ' demanded from them when pious, sanc timonious men paid lor whisky by thebar- rrel, in order to intoxicate poor men Into the army, and save : their sous when the . drums and fifes beat through -our streets, and large meetings were held, and wealthy men, ' representative men, men at the head ' of - large - corporations, publicly pledged " themselves ,' to V look . ' after the wives of. the solJiers, if their husbands would , enlist and light the . uaiuea : ana inereDy save the sons of . these rich' men from going into the ranks, it was all very nice. But that time is gone by the emergency lor men is no longer felt the pledges thus given by inen, whose words should be as good and binding as their bond, are forgotten.! Hun dreds of poor men were humbugged. Into the army by these talse promises, made by the men we refer to, who would not have gone; hundreds of them perished on the oatue-fleld, lingered a miserable captivity In the Southern -prisons, or 'returned maimed and crippled. But have those promises been fulfilled ? The wall of des pair from hundreds of widows and orphans, still suffering frora-want, is an answer to the question. It was men that were need- ea, ana promises were cheap and easily ! broken.' Poor men laid down their live: that the sons of the rich might not be ex- i posed to the dangers ol war. and while ' these same individuals are now revelling in the wealth dislionestly realized from the government, the wives and childreu of the men who' fought their" 'battles,1 and sus tained the nonor ol the flag, are actually suffering for want of the common necessa ries of life starving and freezing, and their widows are 'sent to a common dungeon as an act of charity 1 Great is loyalty !

Correspondence on Texas Affairs between Grant and Sheridan Laid before the House—Grant's Views. Washington. Dec. 13. Amonjr the pa pers laid before the House veoterdav U a letter ta Gen. Grant, irom Major Geueral Sheridan, fitted New Orlean. January 23, 1S67. in relation to matters in Texas, par-'-ticularlv referring to the condicinn rr Union men and freedmen in different narta of the State, which he says is truly horri- uie. no tsajB tne trovernrnent is denounced, freedmen are shot and Union men are ner. sec u ted if they have the temerity to exr ri?ss Lueir uiiiuion. inis letter uenerai Grant, under date of Headquarters of the Army of the United States, January 29th, 1867, indorses as fol lows : "Respectfully forwarded to the Sec retary ot War. Attention Is invited to that portion of the communication which re fers to the condition ot the Union men and freedmen in Texas, and to the powerless nef8 of the military in the nresent state of' affairs to afford them protection.-. Even the moral enoct or tne presence of' troops is passing sway. A few davs ago a sauad ot soldiers on duty were fired on by citizens' in .Brownsville, in my opinion, the great number of murders of Union i men -and freedmen in Texas, not only as a rule going unpunished but uninvestigated, constitute firactically a state of insurrection, and be ieving it to be the province and duty of? every goad Government to afford protec tion to the lives, liberty and property of her ., citizens, I recommend the declara tion, of martial law in Texas .to secure ' the3e. The necessity lor gov erning any portion of our territory by martial law - is to be deplored. If resorted to it should be limited to its authority, and shonld leave all local au thorities and civil tribunals free and unob structed until thev Drove their iniifflcirmcv or unwillingness to perform their dutie. Martial law would give security, or com paratively so, to all classes of citizens without regard to race, color or political opinion, and could be continued until so ciety was capable of protecting itself, or until me stance is returned to its lull rela tion with the Union. The aDDlication of of martial law to one of those States would be a wurning to all, and it necessary ean be extended to others. - Siened.l U. S. GRANT, General." of General Grant were lim tened to with marked, interest and atten tion. The members who have been most emphatic in General Grant as the In ture candidate for the Chief Magistracy of the nation, as this letter to the President is a more open and reliable expression of the General's opinion than thev have as yet been able to obtain, appear "to think they have drawn out sufficient light to increase' their indorsement of him. No action was held bv the civil author ities upon the foregoing recommendation. Message fro the President. The President sent the following mes sage to Congress to-day : Gentlemen of the Senate and Mouse qj Bepre neiuauve . ,- ; An official copy of the order Issued bv Major General W. S. Hancock, commander of the fifth military district, dated Head quarters, New Orleans, on the 20th day of November, has reached me through the resuiar cnanneis oi tne war uepartracnt, and I herewith communicate it to Congress for such action as mav seem to be nroner. view of all the circumstances. - - It will be perceived that Gen. Hancock announces that he will make the law the rule of his conduct; that he will uphold the courts and other civil authorities in the performance ot their proper duties, and that be will use his military power only to preserve the peace and enforce the law. He declares very explicitly that the sacred rizhts ot trial by jury and privilege of the writ of habeas corpus shall not be crushed out or trodden under foot. He goes further, ' nuu in vnv wujfjreueusive sentence aspens that the principles of American liberty are still the inheritance of this Deonle-anrl ever shall be. When a ereat soldier, with unrestricted power in his hands to oppress his fellow man, voluntarily forsroes the chance ot gratifying his selfish ambition and devotes himself to the duty of building up the lib- erties and strengthening the laws of his country, he presents an example of the highest virtue ;that human motive is ca pable of practicing. The strongest claim: of Washington to be first in war.' Mrs t iu peace, and first in the hearts of his coun trymen, is founded on the great fact that in all his Illustrious career he scrupulously ' abstained from violating- the lezal and con- etitntional rights of his fellow - citizens. : Whet he surrendered his commission to Congress, the President of that body spoke his highest praUe in saying he had always i regarded the rights of the civil authorities through all dangers and disasters. -,v wnerever power above the law courted bis acceptance he calmly put tempt itioa aside. By such magnanimous acts ol for bearance he was the universal admiration of mankind, and left a name which has no rival in the history ot the world. 1 I am far frnni savinsr General Honeook ' Is the only officer of the American army who is Influenced by the example of Wash-: Ington. Doubtless thousands of them are faithfully devoted to tne principles for which the men of the revolution laid down their lives, but the distinguished honor be longs to mm ot oeing tne first officer in high command south of the Potomac, since the close of the civil war, who has given utterance to these noble sentiments in the form ot a military order. I respectfully suggest to Consress some public recognition of Gen. Hancock's pat- : riotic co-iduct is due, if not to him to the friends of law and justice throughout the country. Ot such an act as his, at such a time, it Is but fitting that the dignity should be vindicated aim virtue proclaimed, as its value as an example may not be lost to the nation.

The Contraction Question. The Herald's special says: There is a material difference between the anti-contraction bill of the House and that report ed to-day in the Senate.
