It ought to tie printed in etters of gold and treasured by ivery lover of American iustitu loub.—[Editor Herald.] Headquarters Fifth Mili-i tary district, [■ Sew Orleans, JLa. March 9, '68. J To His Excellency, E it. Pease, Governor of Texas: Bib: Your communication of the 17th January last, was received in lue course of mail (tbe 27th Jan luryj, but not until it had been widely circulated by tbe newspa per press. To such a letter—writ ten and published for manifest pur poses—it has beeu my intention to reply as soon as leisure from more important business would permit. Your statement that the Act of Congress "to provide for the more efficient government of the Rebel States," declares that whatever government existed in Texas was provisional; that peace aud order should be enforced; that Texas should be part of the Fifth Milita ry District, and subject to military power; tbat the President should appoint au officer to command in said District, aud detail a force to protect the rights of perron and property, suppreeainsurrectiou and violence, aud punish offenders, either by Military Commission, or through" tbe action of local civil tribuuals, as iv his judgment might seem best, will not be dis puted. One need ouly read the Act to perceive it contains such provisions. Rut how all this is supposed to have made it my duty to order the Military Commission requested, you havo eutirely failed to show. The power to do a thing, if shown, aud the propriety of do ing it, tiro often very different matters. You observe you ore at a loss to understand how v govern ment, without a representation in Congas', or a militia force, and subject to military power, can be said to be iv the hill exercise of all its powers. You do not reflect that this government, created or per mitted by Congress, has all the powers which the Act intends, and may fully exercise 'tbem accord ingly. If you think il ought to bave more powers, should be al lowed to scud members to Con gress, wield a militia force, and possess yet other powers, your complaint is not to be preferred against me, but against Congress, who made it what it is. As respects the issue hjtween u>, any question as to what Congress ought to have done has no perti nence. You admit the Act of Con gress authorizes me to try an of fender by Military Commission, or allow the local civil tribuuals to try, as I shall deem best, and cau uot deny the Act expressly recog nizes such local civil tribunals as legal authorities for the purposes specified. When you conteud there are no legal local tribunals for any purpose iv Texas, you must either deny the plain reading of the Act of Congress or the power of Con gress to pass the Act. You next remark that you dis sent from my declaration, "tbat the country (Texas) is iv a state of profound peace," and proceed to state the grounds of your dissent. They appear to me uot a little ex traordinary. I quote your words: "It is true there no longer exists here (Texas) any organized resist ance to the authority of tbe United States." "But a large majority of the white population who partici pated iv the late Rebellion, are embittered agaiust the govern ment, and yield to it_ an unwilling obedience." Nevertheless, you concede they do yield it obedieuce. You proceed: "None of this class have any af fection for the government, snd very few any respect for it. Tbey regard tbe legislation of Congress on tbe subject of reconstruction as unconstitutional and hostile to tbeir interests, and consider the government now existing here un der authority of the United States as au usurpation of their rights. They look on the emancipation of tbeir late slaves and the disfran chisement of a portion of tbeir own class, as an act of instiltand oppres sion." And this is all you have to present for proof tbat war and not peace prevails in Texas; aud hence it be e lines my duty—so you suppose to set aside the local civil tribu nals, and enforce the Penal Code agaiust citizens by means of Mili tary Commissions. My dear sir, I am not a lawyer, nor has it been my business, as it nay have been yours, to study the philosophy of state-craft and poli tics. But I may lay claim, after an experience of more thau half a life-time, to some poor knowledge of men, and some appreciation of what Is necestary to social order and happiness. And for the future of our common country, I could de voutly wish that uo great number of our people have yet fallen In with tbe views you appear to enter tain. Woe be to us whenever lt shall come to pass that the power of tbe magistrate—oivil or mili tary—is permitted to deal with the mere opinions or feelings of tbe people. I nave been accustomed to be lieve that sentiments of respect or disrespect, nnd feelings of affec tion, love or hatred, ao long a* not developed Into acta In violation of law, were matters wholly beyond the punitory power of liuunin tri bunals. I will muintain that tho entire freedom of thought and speech, however acrimoniously indulged, is cousisteut witli tho noblest aspi rations of man, and the happiest condition of his race. 1 When a boy, I remember to bave read a f|>> eeh of Lord Chntham, de livered lv Parliament. It was dur ing our Revolutionary War, and related to the policy of employing the savages ou the side of Britain. You may be more familiar with the speech than I am. If lam not greatly mistaken bis Lordship de nounced the British government— his government—iv terms of un measured bitterness. He charac terized its policy us revolting to every sentiment of humanity and religion; proclaimed it covered with disgrace, and vented bis eter nal abhorrence nf it and its meas ures. It may, I think, be lately asserted tbat a majority of the British nation concurred in the vieWß of Lord Chatham. But who ever supposed that profound peace was not existing in that kingdom, or that government bad auy authority to question the ab solute right of the Opposition to express their objections to the pro priety of the King's measures in any words, or to any extent they pleastd? It would be diHicult to show that the opponents of the government in the days of tlie elder Adams, or Jefferson, or Jack son, exhibited for It either "affec tion" or "respect." You are con versant with tbe history or our past parties and political strug gles touching legislation on alien age, sedition, the embargo, na* tional banks, our wars with Eng land and Mexico, aud cannot be ignorant of the fact that for oue party to assert that a law or a sys tem of legislation is unconstitu tional, oppressive, or insulting to them, is of no consequence to the matter in hand. The President of the United States has announced his opinion that these Acts of Con gress are unconstitutional. The Su preme Court, as yon are aware, not long ago decided unanimously tbat a certain Military Commission was unconstitutional. Our people everywhere, in every State, with out reference to which side they took during the Rebellion, differ as to the constitutionality of these Acts of Congress. How the mutter Is, neither you nor I may dogmat ically affirm. If you deem them constitutional laws, and beneficial .to the country, you not only have the right to pub lish your opinions, but it might be your bounden duty as a citizen to do so. Not less it is the privilege and duly of every citizen, wher ever residing:, to publish his opinion on this and every other question which be thinks concerns his inter est. This is merely in accordance with the principles of our free government; and neither you nor I would wish to live under auy other. It is time now, at the end of almost two years from the close of the war, we should begin to rec ollect what manner of people we are; to tolerate again free popular discussion, aud extend some for bearance aud consideration to the opposing views. Tho maxims that in all intellectual contests truth is mighty and must prevail, and that error is harmless wheu reason is left free to combat it, are not ouly sound but salutary. It is a poor compliment to the merits of such a cause that its advocates would silence opposition by force, and generally those ouly wbo are iv the wrong will resort to this un generous means, I am confident you will not submit your serious judgment to the proposition that auy amount of discussion, or any sort of opinions, however unwise in your opinion; or auy assertion of feeling, however resentful or bitter, uot resulting in a breach of the law, can furnish justification for your denial lhat profound peace exists iv Texas. You might as well deny tbat profound peace ex ists in New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, California, Ohio and Kentucky, where a majority ofthe people differ with a minority on these questions; or that profound peace exists in the House of Repre sentatives or tbe Senate at Wash ington, or iv the Supreme Court, where all these questions have been repeatedly discussed, and par ties respectfully and patiently beard. You next complain that in parts of the State (Texas) it is diffi cult to enforce the crimiual laws; that Sheriffs fail to arrest; tliat grand jurors will uot always indict; lhat iv some cases tbe military acting in aid of the civil authori ties have uot been able to execute tbe process of tbe Cou-ts; that petit juries have acquitted persons ad judged guilty by you, aud tliat other persons charged with offenses have broke jail and fled from pros ecution. I k low not how these things are; but, admitting your representations to be literally true, if for such reasons I should set aside tbe local civil tribunals aud order a Military Commission, there is uo place iv the United mates where it might uot be done with equal propriety. There is not a State iv tbe Union — North or South—where the like facts are uot continually happening-. Perfectiou is not to be predicated of man or his works. No oue can reasonably expect certain and absolute justice in human transactions; and If mil itary power is to be set iv motion, on the principles for which you would seem to contend, I fear tbat a civil government, regulated by laws, could have uo abiding place beneath the circuit of tbe suu. It la rather more than hinted in your letter that there is no local State government iv Texas and no local laws outside of tbe Acts of Con gress, which I 'ought to respect; and tbat I should undertake to pro tect the rights of persons aud prop erty In my own way and ln an ar bitrary manner. If such be your inclining, I am compelled to differ with you. After the abolition of slavery (an event which I hope no one now regrets) tbe laws of Lou isiana and Texas existing prior to tbe Rebellion, and not lv conflict with the Acts of Congress, com prised a vast system of jurispru dence, both civil and criminal. It required not volumes only, but libraries to contain tbem. They laid down principles and precedents for ascertaining the rights and ad justing the controversies of men in every conceivable case. Tbey were tbe creations of great and good tun learned men, wbo bad labored, in their day, for their kind, and gone down to the grave long before ou recent troubles, leaving their works an inestimable legacy to the hu man race. These laws, as I am informed, connected the civlliza tlon of past and present ages, and testified of ths Justice, wisdom, hu jmsnity and patriotism of .more thau ono nation, through whose records they descended to the peo ple of these States. lam satisfied, from representations of persons competeut to judge, they are as perfect a system of laws as may he found elsewhere, and better suited than auy other to the condition of this people, for by them they have long been governed. Why should it be supposed Congress bas abol ished these laws? VVby should any oue wish to abolish them? Tbey havo committed no treason, nor are hostile to the United States, nor countenance crime, nor favor Injustice. Ou them, as on a foundation of rock, reposes almost the entire superstructure of social order lv these two States, Annul this code of local laws, and there would be uo longer any rights, ei ther of person „r property, here. Abolish tho local civil tribunals made to execute them, uud you would virtually annul the laws, except in reference to Iho very few cases cognizable in tlio Federal Courts. Let us for a moment sup pose the whole local Civil Code an nulled, and tbat I am left, as Com mander of tho Fifth Military Dis trict, the snle fountain of law and justice. This is the position In which you would place me. I nm now to protect all rights ami redress all wrougs. How is It possible for me to do il? Innumer able questions arise, of which I am uot only ignorAnt, but to the solu tion of which a Military Court is entirely unfitted. One would es tablish a will; another a deed; or the question is one of succession, or partnership, or descent, or trust; a suit of ejectment or claim to chat tels; or tbo application may relate to robbery, theft, arson or murder. How am I to take ths first step in auy such matter? If I turn tothe Acts of Congress I find nothing on the subject. I dare not open the authors on the legal code, for it has ceased to exist. And yon tell me in tbia perplex ing conditiou I urn to furnish, hy dint of my own hasty und crude judgment, the legislation demand ed hy the vast uud manifold inter eats of the people ! I repeat, sir, that you, aud uot Congress, are re sponsible for the monstrous sug gestion tliat there are no local laws or institutions here to be respected by me, outside of tlio Acts of Con gress, I say, unhesitatingly, if it were possible that Cougress should pass an act abolishing the local codes for Louisiana and Texas— which I do not believe—and it should fall to my lot tosupply their places with something of my own, 1 do not see how I could do better tbriii follow the law in force here prior to the Rebellion, excepting whatever therein may relate to slavery. Power may destroy the forms, but uot the principles of jus tice; these will live iv spite even of the sword. History tells us tbat the Roman pandects were lost for a long period among Ihe rubbish that war and revolution bad heaped up on them, but at length were dug out of Ihe ruins—again to be re garded as a precious treasure. You are pleased to say that "since the publication of [uayl General Orders No. 40, there has been a perceptible increase of crime aud manifestations of hostile feel ing toward thu government and its ; supporters," and add that it is "an Unpleasant duty to give such a re cital of the condition of the couu- try." You will permit mo to euy that I deem it impossible tbe lirst of these statements can be true, aud tbat I do very gicatly doubt tbe correct ness of tlie second. General Orders. No. 40 was issued at New Orleaus, November 29, 1867, and your letter was d.it d January 17, 1868. Al lowing time for Order No. 40 to reach Texas and become generally known, some additioual time must have elapsed before its effect would bo manifested, and yet a further time must transpire before you would be able to collect tbe evi dence of what you term "the con dition of tlio country;" aud yet, after all this, you have to make the necessary iuvestlgotions to as certain if Orders No, 40 or some thing else was tbe cause, Tbe time, therefore, to euable you, before the 17th day of January, 1868, to reach a sat isfactory conclusion ou so delicate and vice a question, must have been very short. How you pro ceeded, whether you Investigated yourself or through third persous, and, if so, who they were, what their competency and fairness, ou what evidence you rested your con clusion, or whetheryou ascertained any facts at all, are points upon which your letter so discreetly omits all mention, that I may well be excused for not relyiug implic itly upou It; nor is my difficulty diminished hy tho fact that in an other part of your letter you state that, ever since the close of the war a very large portion of the people bave had uo alfectiou for the gov ernment, but bitterness of feeling only. Had the duty of publishing and circulating through the coun try long before it readied me, your statement tbat the action of the District Commander was Increas ing crime and hostile feeling against the government, beeu less painful to your sensibilities, It 'might possibly bave occurred to you to furnish something on the subject iv addition to your bare as sertion. But wliat wa9 Orders No. 40, and bow could It bave tbe effect you at tribute to lt? It sets forth tbat "tbe great principles of American liberty are still tbe inheritance of this people aud ever should be, tbat the right of trial by jury, the habeas corpus, tbe liberty of the press, the freedom of speech and tbe natural rights of persons and property must be preserved." Will you questiou the truth of these dec larations ? Which of these great principles of liberty are you ready to deny uud repudiate ? Whoever does so avows himself the euemy of human liberty and tbe advocate of despotism. Was there any inti mation in General Orders No. 40 tbat auy crimes or breaches of law would be countenanced? You know that there was not. On the contrary yeu know perfectly well that while "the consideration of crime aud offences committed In the Fifth Military District was re ferred to tbe judgment of the regu lar civil tribunals," a pledge was given in Orders No.4o,wbicb all un derstood,that thoie tribunals would be supported in their lawful juris diction, and that "forcible resist ance to law would he instantly sup pressed by aims." You will not affirm that this pledge bas over beeu forfeited. There has not been a moment since I have been iv command of the Fifth District, wheu the whole military force in my bands has not been ready to support the civil authorities of Texas In tbe execution of tbe laws. And 1 am unwilling to believe tbey would refuse to call for aid If they ueeded it. There are some conditions which, It seems to me, should cause you to hesitate before indulging in whole sale censures against the civil au thorities of Texas. You aro your self the sbief of those authorities, not elected by the people, but cre ated by the military. Not long after you had thus come into office, all the Judges of the Supreme Court of Texas—live iv number— were removed from otlice, anil new appointments made; twelve of the seventeen District Judges were re moved and others appointed. County officers, more or less, in seventy-live out of ono hundred aud tweuty-eigbt counties, were re moved, and others appointed in their places. It is fair to conclude that the executive autl Judicial functionaries in Texas are the per sons whom you desired lo 1111 the office*. It is proper to mention, also, that none but registered citi zens, and only those who could take tbe test oath, have beeu al lowed to serveas Jurors during your administration. Now, it is against this local government, created by military power prior to my coining here, aud so composed of your per sonal and political friends, that you have preferred the most griev ous complaints, it is of them that you have asserted they will not do their duty; they will not maintain justice; will not arrest offenders; will not punish crimes; and that out of one hundred homicides com mitted iv the last twelve months, not over ten arrests have been made; aud by means of such gross disre gard of duty, you declare that neither property nor life Is safe in Texas. Certainly you could have said nothing more to the discredit of the officials wbo are now in office. If tbe facts be as you allege, a mys tery Is presented for which I can imagine no explanation. Why is it tbat your political friends, back ed up aud sustained by the whole military power of the United States In this Dist-ict, should be unwill ing to enforce tbe laws agaiust that part of the population lately in re bellion, and whom you represent as tbe offenders? In all tbe his tory of these troubles, I have never seeu or heard before of such a fact. I repeat, if the fact be so, it is a profound mystery, utterly surpass ing my com prehension. lam con strained to declare that I believe you are in very great error as to facts. I find tbat at the date of your letter four cases only ot hom icides, had beeu reported to these Headquarters as having occurred since November 29, 1867, tbe date of Orders 40, and tbese oases were ordered to be tried or investigated as soon as the reports were received. However, tlie fact of the one bun dled homicides may still he cor rect, as stated by you. The Freed man's Rureau in Texas reported one hundred and sixty; how many of these were by Indians and Mex icans, and how the remainder were classified, is not kuown, uor is it known whether these data are ac curate. The report of tlie Commanding Officer of the District of Texas shows that since I assumed com mand no applications have been made to him by you for the arrest of criminals in tho State of Texas. To this date eighteen oases of homicide have been reported tome as having occurred since Novem ber 29, 1867, although special in structions had been giveu to report such cases as they occur. Of these, five were committed by ludians, one by a Mexican, one by an in sane man, three by colored men, two of women by their husbands and of the remainder some by par ties unknown—all of which could he scarcely attributable lo Orders No. 40. If tbe Reports received since the Issuing of Orders No. 40 are correct,they exhibit no increase of homicides iv my time, If you are correct fiat one hundred had oc curred in the past twelve mouths. That there has not been a perfect administration of justice iv Texas 1 am not prepared to deny. That there bas been no such wan ton disregard of duty on the part of officials as you allege, I am well satisfied. A very little while ago you regarded the present ofHciuls iv Texas the ouly ones wbo could be safely trusted with power. Now you pronounce them worthless and would cast them aside. I havo found little else in your letter but indications of temper, iashed into excitement by causes which I deem mostly imaginary, a great confidence iv the accuracy of your own opinions, and au intoler ance of the opinions of others, a o punish of desire to the thoughts and feelings those who differ from you, aud an impatience which mag nifies the short-comings of officials, who are perhaps as earnest and conscientious in tlie die-charge ol tbeir duties as yourself, and n most uusound conclusion that while any persons are to be found wauting iv affection or respect for tbe government, or yield ing iv obedieuce from mo tives wjiich you do uot approve, war, and not peace, is the status, and all such persons are the proper subjects for military penal jurisdic tion. ' If I have written any thing to dlsabuso your mind of so grave au error, I shall be gratilied. I am, sir, very respectfully, your obedient servant, W. 8. Hancock, Major-General Commanding.
