VERMONT WATCHMAN & 8TATE JOUUMAL WEDNESDAY APRIL 5, 1890. WKUNKHDAY, Al'ltlti G, 1899. ARTHUR ROP13S, Qonoral Ertttor. Slicrmnu niul iStnnloii. Coruniontlng on tho biography of Edwlu M. Stauton, Iho sccrotary of war during tho timo of Iho robolllou, excoptlug for a briof porlod at its be glnnltig, tho Hostou Ilerald says: "Tho biography preBontscff uctlvoly tho Jub tlflcatlon of Secrotary Stauton In disnpprov lng tho terma on which Gonoral Shottnnu .ccopted General JohnBton'a surrontlor at tho oloso ot tho war ot tho robulllon. Tlio ao tlou was that ot tho Prosldont, and It waa n Judgment unlvorsally Bharod by thoso ln authotlty." Tho Herakl aaya, furthor, that "Gon cral Shcrmon wn8 much mortiflcd by thla trcntuionl of hla ocllon, nnd Stan ton, who waa alwoys prompt lo nccept retponsibllity, had to bonr alouo tho weicht of hla disploasuro." Tho "dtsplcasuro" of Gonoral Shor man was thoeffcct of couacs only in cldentally conncctcd with tlio dlaap proval of tho terma of Bitrrcndor ho had proposed lo Gonoral Johualon, com muuding the Confoderato artuica Sa North Carolina aud othor aoctlous of tho South. Gonoral Shorman was too good a soldicr, too well underatood tho du y of ontiro aubordinatioii to tho will of hla tuporiors, to feol nflroutod nt tho rucro disapproval of nuy act, or proposcd not, of hia. Aftor Leo's sur rondor, ho had, April 18, 1805, ar ranged wlth Genoral Johuaton terms for tho aurrcndcr of tho Coufedorato forces under hia command. Tho ar tlclea of ngreomont doalt with political as well aa military queatioua quoa tious which Prcaident Lincoln had in etructcd Gcncral Grant, aovoral wcoks boforo, whon Gonoral Loo waa oaking for a couforonco, ho would hold iu hia own liands. This inatruction had never been Bupplied to Genoral Shor raan. On tho contrary, Geuernl Shor man avers in hia Memoira thal Sccro tary Stauton, during his visit to Sa vannah, eoon aftor tho fall of that city, had authorized hiru "to control all mat tra, civil aud military." Tho agrcenient with General Johnaton waa sent for approval to Washington, with lettcrs fully cxplaining tho mili tary aituation, tho document reciting on its face the fact that neithor party had authorlty to mako Qnal" terms in Tolving civil or political quostiona. Geueral Sherman "cared littlo whethor they were approved, modified, or dia approvcd in toto." But ho wantod in structiona. What aroused his undying angor against Stanton waa tho public uae ho made of tho agreement, his im putation of dlsbonor, and his wholly unnecessary brusqueness in oxprcssing his disapproval. At that timo tho aecrotary of war Tvaa in the habit of supplying to tbo preBS a daily bullctin of such important events as could proporly be communi cated to thc public. In duo coureo of timo the New York papera woro re ceivod at Genoral Sherman'a head quartora at Italeigh. In tho New York Timts ho read tho bullctin tho war dopartment had aent out immediatcly after General Sherman'a doapatch bearer had arrivcd in Washington. Tho bul letin recited tho subatanco of the ne gotiations. It declared that a certain dispoaition of hia forces General Sher man had made would "probably" open the way for Jefforson Davis, who wbb then fleeiug from his Federal purauers, to cscape to Mexico or Europo with his "plunder," which, the sccretary said, was reported to bo vory large, "includ ing not only the plunder of tho Rich mond banka, but previous accuruula tionB," amounting to somo 813,000,000 in gold. The crowning act of infamous auggeation in thia bullctin was the pub lication of a deapatch from Richmond of a Btatoment, "by respectablo par tiea," that Davia and his fellow fugi tives "hopo to niake terma with Gen oral Sherman, or somo othor comman der, by which they be pormittod, with their offects, including this gold plund er, to go to Mexico or Europo. John ston'B nogotiationa look to this end." This waa tho adder that Btung Gen eral Sherman and envonomed all the blood of tho high spiritod warrior. There could be no forgiveneas for tho raan who in hot hasto rushed that cal umny on to tho bullotln boards of all tho natlon. Hia righteoua angor became a onauming flamo, and it noror burnod out. Stanton waa never forgiven, and ho never coascd to feel tho smart of Sherman'a fierce diapleaaure. Stanton was utterly and deplorably wrong. General Sherman, of all men, to bo bribod with Davia plundorod gold to allow the arch traltor to eacapol Tho irony of thia opiaodo appoarod later, whon this "plunder," which would liave required a long traln of mulo icame for its transportation, ahrank to the contenta of Joff Davis' grlpaack, in which wore a fow thouaand dollars ln coin. To add to this inault to Shorman, a aecond bullctin waB aent out by tho aecrotary, announclng that tho dull wittod and malovolont Ilallock, com mandlng in Virginia, whoso ovll gen ius had tcmporarily snuffed out tho llght that at Donchon throw ita Qrat choorlng ray luto tho gloora onvclop ing tho Unlon cauao, had iaaucd orders to Moadr, Shorldan aud Wright "to pay uo rcgard to any truco or ordor8 of Gonoral Shorman rcapcctlng liostll ilica." Ilalleck rcpoatcd tho canard about Davia' Bpcclo, nnd suggcstcd to tho sccrotary that ordors bo ttlo graphed Thomaa that Wllson and oth ors who wero pursuiug tho fleeiug Con foderato and his mylhical apoclo ladon wagou train should nlao bo lnstructcd to oboy no ordors from Sherman. Thoso mulliplled iuaults and baao In sinuatlons klndlcd in tho broaal of tho high spiritod commandor tho lhruo of rcaentful nngor that never burnod out and thoy would havo flred a f ar less com bustiblo tcmporamont. Genoral Grant wcnl to Italoigh. Conccallng from his brilllant licutenant tho fact that ho was dircctcil to tako command of tho army, ho cxplalned to Sliorman, ln a spiril of kiudly comradcship, that tho agree ment wlth Johnaton had bcon anuul lcd,adviacd tlmt tho terms under which Lce had laid down his arms bo prof forcd to JohtiBton, approved n draft of a new couventlou, aud wont nway aa quietly as ho had come, atill prcBerving tho aecret of tho ordor under which tho glory of rcceivinif tho aurrondor of Johnson, nlso, might havo bccn trans foircd to his own namo. It should bo rcuieuibercd that thcao oventa tranaplred soon after tho asaaa ainatiou of tho kindly Lincoln, and amid tho tcrror and ofllcial demoraliza tion that cusucd in Washington.
