Ildnoook rendered sorvices in the. field during tho, war of the highest importance fa the country; but the services ho rendered, after tho close of hostilities were of incalculable value, and deserving of everlasting re membrance. As commander of the Department of Missouri (18GG-7) and of the department of Louisiana and Texas n8b7-'8) he had to dealt with civil questions requiring the best states manship and the soundest judgement ; and the way in which he deat with them showed, that he possessed the qualities neccessary lor their - proper decision., In times of peril to the con stitutional richts of tho states and to the fundamental liberties of the people he went to the full extent of his pow er in. maintaining those rights and liberties, and made for himself a rec ord that the American peoplo- must keep before their eyes in the daj'3 that are now upon hs-Wo have brougnt together from his,orjdets, letters, and grjeeches. while commanding the de partments just named, a few passsages of profound, perraapent and praotioal interest.. ...!-. i'-i . i '- ORDER NO. 40.---MILITARV AUTHORITY GIVES WAY T6 THE CIVIL THE , PRINCIPLES OF AMERICAN LIBERTY OCR LAWFUL INHERITANCE; ! ' The General Commanding is gratified to learn that peace and quiet reign in his department. r It will be his .pur pose to preserve' this condition of things As a means to this greatnd he regards ihe maintenance of-the civ il authorities in the faithful execution ofthe laws as the mpsfc efpeient under existing oircumstancesv.-. ' 'v In waritis jndispensabla to repel fnrnfl hv force, and overthrow and de stroy' opposition to lawful authority. But when . insurrectionary force has been overthrown and peace established and th civil authorities are ready and willing to .. perform their-duties, the militarv oo wer should cesse to lead, ana and the civil administration resume its ' natural .and rightful dominion. Solemnly impressed with these views the general announces that the great principles of American Liberty are still tho lawlul inheritance of this peo ple and ever should be. The right of trial bv iurv. the habeas corpus, the liberty of the press, the freedom of the natural . rights of persons. and the rihu of property must be pre. served. Free institutions, while tbey are es- ceotial to the prosperity and happiness of the people, always furoiah the atrooc est inducement, to peace and order. While the General thai indi cates his purpose to respect the liber ties of the people. k wisbes all to o-jet-stand that armed incnraioosoT for cible msUUbc to the law will be io- ttaatly suppressed by arms.

' My DEARSiR:'lWnoi a lawyer, nor has it beeu my. business as it may have been yours, to study tho philos ophy of statecraft and politics. But I may lSy claim after the experienco of half a lifetime, to some poor knowledge of men, and some appreciation of what is necessary to social order and happi ness" Antffor the future of our com mon country' I could devoutly wish that no great number of our people have yet fallen in with the vicwj' you appear to entertain. Woe be to us whenever it shall eomo to pass that the power of the magistrate oivil or mili tary is permitted to. deal with the mere opinions or feelings of the people' I have been accustomed to believe that sentiments of respeot or disrespoot and feelings of affeotion love or hatred, so long as not devoloped into aots ' in violation of law, were matters wholly beyond thopunatory power of human tribunals. ... (.. I will maintain that the entire free dom of thought and speech, however, acrimoniously indulged, is consistent with the noblest aspirations of man, and the happiest conditions of his race, When a boy I remember . to have read a epeeoh of Lord Chatham .deliv ered in parliament.'. It was during our revolutionary war, and .related to the poicy of employing the savages on, the side of Britian., ' You may be more familiar with' the speedU 'than , I am It f am not greatly mistaken his lord ship denounced tho' British Govern ment his-Government in- terms o! unmeasured bitterness He character ized its policy as revolting to every sentiment of humanity and religion; proclaimed it covered . with disgrace, and vented his eteinal abhorrence of it and its measures. It may I think be safely asserted that a majority of the British nation conourrod in the views of Lord Chatham- But who ever sup posed that profound peace was not ex isiing in that kingdom, or that the Government had any authority toques tioa the absolute right of the opposi tion to express their objections to the propriety of ..the. King's measures in any words or to any extent they pleas ed ? It would be difficult to show the opponents of the Government in the days of the elder Adams, or Jefferson, or Jackson exhibited for it either "af fection" or "respect" You are conver sant with the history of our pest par ties and political struggles touchiog legislation on alienage, sedition., the embargo, national banks, our wars with England and Mexico, and cannot be ignorant of the fact that for ojs party to assert that a law or system of legislation is unconstitutional, opprea atxe aod ursurpative, is not new thing in the United State.

'. This is merely In aooordaboe with the principles oi onr free govern ment ; and neither you nor I would wish to live tinder any other. - It is time now,' at the end . of almost , two years from the close of the, war, . we ahould begin to recollect what manner of people we are ; to tolerate again free popular discussion, and extend some forbearance and consideration to op posing viows. , The maxims that in all intelleotunr contests1 truth is mighty and must prevail, and that error is, harmless wbon reason is iett rreo to combat it, aro not only sound but salutary.- It is a pooreomplimentto the merits of suoh a cause that its advoca tes would silence opposition1 by force! and generally those only who are in the wrong will resort to this ungener ous moans, 'lam confident you will not commit your serious judgment to tbe proposition that any amount ' pi dioussion,:or any sori of opinions, how ever unwise in yonr judgment, or any assertion of feeling, however resent ful or bitter not resulting in a breaoh of law,; can furnish justification for yonr denial that profound pesos exists in Texas: ' You might as well deny that profound pease exists in New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Call-: forms, Ohio, and Kentucky, where majority of the ' peoplo differ with a' minority on these questions ; or, that profound peace exists in the House of Representatives or the Senate at Wash ington, or in the Supreme Court, nhero all these questions havo been re peatedly discussed, and parties respeot fully and patiently teard '. , ' THE BABCOCK COURT GEN HANCOCK ' MOTION .TERMINATING PROCEED - - INGS. ...!. : :f .. ; t ':; ; Gen. W. S. Hancock arose in his place, and, addressing the Court,' said: Mr. President : I have' a motion to make to the Court which will be proper to be made' before the Court is sworn, if it be made at all. If the Court are prepared to hear me, I will proceed at onoe.! ' ; ' VV' '''' " Lieut-Gen. Sheridan Proceed, Gen eral, the Court will hear you. ' 5 " Gen. Haneook then read tbe follow ing motion : A sense of duty u the laws, to the military service, and to the accused impels me to ask youreonour- renoe in a postponement of this inquiry for the present. We are all bound to believe in tbe entire innocence of Gen. Babcock, and this presurnption cannot bo repelled without the evidence, It ;s due to him to suppose that the court of inquiry was asked in good faith for the roasons given. What were these reasons ? . In the eourso of . rt. w . an a fb I t. a legal trial in oc. Aiouis.uoi. asdoock was alleged to be guilty of a high crim. ipal offence. He asked for a bearing jn tbe same court hut was informed thatheeould not have it, because, the evidence was elosed. - These ' cir cumstances had led him to demand ' a court of inquiry as the only means of vindication that was left. Since then he baa been formally indicted, and ia now certain of getting that full and fair'trial before an impartial jury, which! the lawa of the country guarantee to all its citizen ' The supposed neces sity of convening a military court for the determination of his g mlt or inno cence no longer exists. It is not be. licved that our action as a military tribunal can omt th jurisdiction of the eourt in which the iodietmeot is pending Tbe President hit said, through the- Attorney-General, that snth wis Dot the intention. Thea tbe triil at St Loais and this inqoiry matt go oa at the same time, aoles we await the result of the ioqai-j iter. .i Tbe difficulties are very formidable.

It will, without question, , be binding and oouolttslve upon us, upon the Government, Bpoat the aconsed. and upon the world." "If he should jbe convioted, no decision ol oura could re sous bin from, the bands of the law. - If he is acquitted, our be-1 lief in his fnnoconoe will be tjf no con sequence,' If we anticipate tbe trial ia the oivil court,' our judgment, whether for the acousod or against hint. wll have, and ought to have, no effect upon the jurors. .
