Abmt,) WisniHoTOfi, Auiist 17, 1S87. f flis Kxeellenev, Andrew Johnson, President of th United KUteei Pin t t am in receipt of your order of this date, directing me to appoint General George 11. Thomas to th command of the flth Military District) General SherlJan to the Department of Missouri, and General Hancock to the Department of the Cumber land and also your note of this ditto en closing these instructions, to carry into ef fect the enclosed order, saying you would be pleasod to hear any suggestions I may deem necessary, respecting the assignments, to which tho order refers. I um pleased to svnil myself of this invitation to urge, earnestly urge in Ihe name nf a patriotic people who have sacrificed hundreds or thousands of lives and thousands of mill ions nf treasure to preserve tho integrity aud Union of this country, that this order bo not insisted upon. It is linmistnkahly '.he expressed wish of the coutitry that General Sheridan shoul I not be removed from his command. This is republic where the will of the people is the law of tho land. I beg that this voice ma) be heard. General Slicridau has performed his civil duties faithfully and intelligently. His removal will only be regarded as an effort to defeat the laws ol Congress. It wili be interpreted by the unreconstructed element In Ihe South those who did all the) oould to breuk up this government by arms, and who now wish to be the only element consulted as to the method of re storing order as a triumph. It will em boldon thm to renewed opposition to the will of the loyal masse, believing that they havo the Executive with them. The services of General Thoma in bat tling for the Ui. ion entitle him to some con sideration. He Imj repeatoilly entered his proteal against being assigned to either of tho five military districts, and especially against being assigned to relieve Goiters! Sheridan. General liancock ought not to be removed fi'oni where he is. Hie depart mont.i n complicated oi h, which will titko a new commander some time to becoma ac quainted with. There sre military reasons, pecuniary reasons and above all patriotic reasons why this order should not be in sisted on. I beg to refer to a letter marked " iirivute," which I wrote to the President when fitat colmulled ou the subject of a change iu the War Department. It bears upon the subjuot of this ramoveal aud 1 had hoped would have prevented it. I have the honor to be, with great re spect, your obedient servant. U. S. GRANT. General U. S. Army, and Secretary of War ad interim. . EXKCUTIVR MaNCION, I Washington, I). C. Aug. 19, 1867. ( Gknkrai. : I have received your commu nication of the 17th inil, aud (hank yuti b r the promptness with which you have sub mitted your viows respeating tho assign ments directed iu my order of that date. When I stated in my official note of the 17lh, that I would be pleased to hear any sug gestion you might deom necossary upon tho subject, it wat not my intention to nalc rrnm yon n formal lepnrt, but rather to in vito it veibal statement of any reasons af fecting tho publio interest which in your opinion, would rontler tlio onior inexpedi ent. Inasmuch, however, in a written com munication, it is propoeod, I should make some reply. You earnestly urge that the order be not nsisted on, remarking that it is niimintak dy tho expressed wish of the country that Gen. Sheridan should not be removed from his present command. While I am cognizant of the efforts thut have been made to re- ive Ueneral Sheridan in command of the 5th Military District,! am not aware that tho question lias ever been submitted to the popl themsuive for determination. It would certainly be unjnat to the army to assume that, in the opinion of the nation, he alone is capable of commanding the Statea of Louieana and Texas, and that were he for any oiuiso removed, no other Ueneral in tbe service ot the United states would be competent to fill hi placo. Gen. Thomas, whom 1 designated as his succes sor, is well known to the country as having won Inert and honorable distinction in tlio Hold, aud lie lias sinoo in the liitfli and re sponsible duties of Department Commander, exhibited great ability, sound distinction, and sterling r.atrolism. And he has not failed uuder tho most trying circumstances, to enforce the laws : to preservo peace and order ; to encourage tlm restoration of civil authority ; and to promote ae ftr as possi lite, a spirit ot reconciliation. Ilia admin istration of the Department oi the Cumber land, will certainly compare most favors bly with that of General Sheridan in bis military uibuici. iiiero auair sueiu to b in a disturbed condition, and a bitter pirit of antagonism teem to have reaulted Irani Ueneral oheridau management, lie has rendered himself exceedingly obnox ious by the manner in whioh he ba exer uised even the power conferred by Con gress, and still more so, by a resort to an thority not granted by law or necessary to his faithful and efuoitnt execution. His rule has in fact been one of absolute ty ranny. williont reterence to tlio principles of our government or nature of our iuatitu tions. The state of affairs which ha re suited from the eonrse he has pursued has seriously interfered with a harmonious aud satisfactory, aud sneedv execution of the acts of Congress and is alone sufficient to jnstily a change. . tlis removal, therefore cannot be regarded a an effort to defeat the law of Congress, for the object i to facilitate their execution through an officer who ha never failed to obey the law and to exact within bin jurisdiction a like obe diemo from otuern. It cannot be inter preted by tho unreconstructed element of the South, those who did all thy oould to break up tin irovenmient by armsa.nl now v.llt to b Ibe only element consulted a to Ihe method of restoring order, a a triumph lor aa InUllttfent men lliey ruuat know tha th mere change ot military commander eonnot alter the law aud that General Thomas will be a much bound by it re quirements a Ueneral Sheridan. It can embolden tlieui to renewed opposition to the will of the loyal ma, believing- tha' .i - .i . : . .1 iney nv in cxecu'iv wiin ineiu, lor tliev are perfectly familiar with th ante oedeute of tne President and know that be has not obatrnoied th faithful execution ot any act of Congreae. No one, a you are aware, ha a higher appreciation, than my self, of the aervice of Qn. Thomas, and no on ajroulJ be lev inclined to aaaiat turn t command not entirely to In wtsh Knowing him, aa I, do, I cau'l think that he will heaitale for a moment to obey my order, having In view " complel en speedy restoration of the Union, in th preservation of which he . baa rendered such important and . valuable service General Hancock i knowu to th who I Country a a gallant, able and patriotic oldier, and will, I have no doubt, ut hi high reputation in any poaitiou which h may be aaignd. If, you ob serve, tbe Department wlircb he will leave is a complicated one. I feel confident that under the guidance and inatructinne Uantral Sherman, General Shrridau will soon bacom familiar with ibl noeaaaiiie, and will avail himlf of th opportunity Soidd by the Indian trouble for the die pity of tht energy, euterpri end daring, whii h gav him o nviabl a reputation during th leoeut oivil struggle. Iu OMUtniug that it i th expreesed wlah of th people that Gneral Sheridan should not be removed from his preaent command, vou remaik that tlii ia a Republic, bnsed however, upon a written constitution. That constitution is th combined and ex pressed will of th people, aud their Voice is Isw when reflected In the manner which that instrument presiribc. While one of it provisions makos tha Prceident Com-mander-in Chief of the Army and Navy, an-' other yequirts that he shall take rare that the law b) fiiihfnl y executed. Believing that a chnngs iu Ilia oommaud of tha filh Military District is absolutely necessary for a faithful eieculion of the law, I have issued the order whioh it the' tubjeot of this correspondence. In thus exercising the power that inheres in the Executive, nnder the Constitution, as Commnnder-in Chief of the Army and Jtt&vy. I ' am discharging a duty rcqoK.crl. of me by tho will of the nation, as1 forrpally declared in tha supreme 1 iw of th land, fly his oath the Execu tive I solemnly bound, to the best of his ability, to preservo, piotrct snd defend (li (.'(institution, and although in times of excitement It be lost to the public view, it I his duty, without regard to the conse qtiel.ces to himself, to hold stored and enforce any and all of it provisions. Any othor conrxn would load to the destruction of the republic, for the Constitution once abolished, there would bo no Congress for the exorcise of legislative powers; no Ex ecutive to sco that the ltwa were faith fully executed i no judiciary to afford to the citizens protection for life, limb or property. Usurpation would inevitably follow and a despotism be fixed on the people, iu violation of their combined and expressed will. Iu conclusion, I fail to perceive any military, pecuniary or patri otic rensnns why. this order should not be carried into effect. You will remember Hint, in the first instance, I did not con sider General Sheridan the most suitable man for the command of the 6th Military District. Time has strengthened my con viotioi a upon this 'point and led me to the conclusion that .'putriotio considerations demand thl bo-nonld be superceded by au officer who, wlrile he will faithfully exe cute the law, will at the same time give more general satislnctinn to the whole peo pie, white und black.

The reputation this ex cellent uiedioine enjoys, is derived from its cures, muny of which are truly murvcllous. Inveterate cases of Scrofulous dis ease, where the rystem seemed saturated with corruption, have ' been Eurillcd aud cured by it. criil'illous nfli-etinns and disorders, which were ag- fravated by tho scrofu 111s contamination unlil they were pninflilly afflirting, have been radically cured in such greut numbers In almost every sec tion of tho country, thut the publio scarcely need to uc iniormeu ui us virtues or ucs. Bcronilous poison is one of tho most destructive enemies of our race.
