The Arlington january a 1870. Fitz John Porter. The motive for the unexpected visit of general Mcclellan to this City the other Day has come to the surface. An Effort is being made to get the president to revoke the sentence and set aside the finding of the court called to try that gentleman whose Devotion to his general exceeded his loyalty to his government. It was not that he loved the Union less hut Mcclellan More. The pressure in his behalf is so great that general Bherman has recommended to the president that the inflicted be removed and the president has the subject under advisement with what Prospect of a decision one May gather after consider Long the pressure that comes from West Point and comparing it with the Hope of a nomination to the presidency. I am rather of the opinion that the sentence and finding will be set aside. The president has such a contempt for politicians and general Sherman Snow a scorn of the people that i believe West Point will Triumph and general Porter be saved the further Ignominy that attends his present situation. I have always thought that to struck at Small game when we put on trial the creature instead of the master. Perhaps the master was too 6brewd and cautious to commit the overt not necessary to a finding by a court martial. But there was one thing certain the spirit existed at Headquarters that inspired the overt treason. I happened to be cognizant of some of this. During Popes Campaign when his Little army stood Between Lee and the capital holding the confederates at Bay until Mcclellan could come up with his forces from the James i made an attempt to join my general. X proceeded to Alexandria intending to take the oars to Manassas Junction and thence on horseback to our command. I found the town full of rumours to the effect that the enemy was at the Junction in Force. I could not believe this and succeeded in so convincing general Slough of its Absurdity that he made up a train and sent is out. We came to grief not Only in finding the report True but in a collision Between our train and one fleeing from the Confederate Wrath in its rear. Defeated in this direction i then sought general Mcclellan a a Headquarters near Alexandria to learn if possible the meaning of the trouble. I found my old for end colonel key who welcomed me to the Litt e lamp. I was introduced to other officers of be staff but would get no reliable information i did however hear enough to satisfy me that the officers there assembled had very Little interest in the struggle then going on As they a shed at the Earnest demands sent by Telegraph to general to Clellan from the War Depa Wnent to hurry on his troops to the Relief of general Pope. Nor would i discover from them the Road i must take to get to the front. I did not see general to Clellan. I asked colonel key to get an opinion from him and after an hours delay i Learned from colonel key that it was the opinion at Headquarters that i had Only to remain where i was and my command or at least All that might be left of it would soon join me. A does general Mcclellan know that so grave a disaster has occurred a i asked. A the knows Only that John Pope is in command and that Means the same these men thought All that general Porter acted and he. But carried into the Field the spirit that animated his commander. He the subordinate was taken tried and condemned. He had an impartial court and a fair trial and now to set the sentence aside on the ground Solel y of personal feeling would be an outrage that even our Good natured people so prone to forget will at once resent. Since the close of the War and since we have received information from the other Side it is evident that had general Pppe received Active and Hearty of operation from Mcclellan a forces the War would have ended on the Field where we experienced oar first great defeat. General Lee like a dignified Donkey As he is had divided his army putting one half under Jackson Between Pope and Mcclellan where it was As far beyond support As Grant was at Shiloh. J had a Long and interesting talk with general Longstreet on this subject last Winter and if that gentleman can be called to the stand the finding of fits John porters court will be doubly conf lined in the minds of the people. And yet the Lee on offered re main a untaught. In our Blind anxiety to find military training we overlooked both capacity and patriotism. West Point gave us neither. We were seated in oar Hoar of need to the fruits of a faulty system. The a Yoang men Are shut up in a Little Academy and taught while being trained that they Are born to command a class born to be Oomman Dej we have secured a process that shuts oat patriotism As it shuts out sympathy with the peo a. Jeff. Davis boasted at the beginning of this War that he could take his Pink from officers of West Point and he made Good his boast. Tiie Yankees educated at the expense of the government turned their books upon that government in its time of trouble Beranse they Honsl deed the party in revolt the More respectable. T he Southern cause was the cause of gentlemen while the government rested on miserable Yankees making a fight for negro Equality. Jeff. Davis made his selection and All that was left to is in which we Oan honestly take Pride is general George h. Thomas. And he is a West Point Oas Nalty. He grew to greatness in spite of its teachings. In the meantime let the just findings of an honest oort be reversed. We Oan stand that As Well As the rest. Congre98. This highly respectable body of men met yesterday and began its Dally grind. Much of the time was too onried in the cheerful process of porn Long water in a Sieve. In the Senate the Hon. Charles Sumner held the Sieve and called lustily on his faithful followers to pour in with vigor. It is called reconstruction and came up on a proposition to admit Virginia to All the rights and privileges of a state. Senators Sumner Drake Howard and other hot go spelers being of the opinion that a 8tate formerly in revolt was properly reconstructed when a majority of its people not Only voted the Republican ticket but Clung to the platform with the Pertinacity of death to a departed african. Senator Drake went so far As to assert and he proposed to embody the proposition in an amendment that should a legislature of a reconstructed state hereafter assume to rescind or withdraw its ratification of the fifteenth amendment such attempted action shall operate to prohibit any further representation of such state in Congress and shall remand it to the condition in which it was immediately preceding the passage of this act. Senator Drake has some Sweet ideas respecting a state. They Are based on a state of pre ordination. Being a Blue nosed presbyterian and the son of Blue noses he scouts at and denounces free will. This is oho Ioe. Congress says to a state Yon can Toome in until Yon ratify and you be got to go out the moment Yon cease ratifying. If this done to Knook the sovereignty Bendwise i done to know what does. All this runs on the belief that we of the Republican organization Are to remain possessed of the government for All time to come. Well i Hope we May. But when i note the stupidity of our leaders and their unprincipled greed and above All the corruption that prevails i have a fear that the people May Rise some Day in their Wrath and say a git up and and i notice that when such edict goes Forth the party in Power is Apt to remove and give place to Boner other. And when that occurs one wants to know what will become of this system of reconstruction the time must come when we will be forced to hand Over the government of the states to the people of the states and then the governing element will Home in play and do pretty much As it pleases Sumner and Drakes last will and testament to the contrary . An amusing incident occurred during the debate fetch Long out my Friend Charles in glowing colors. A brother senator told Charles he must not make such a other about the fifteenth amendment for he had not voted for it. At this Charles Rose and said a i voted for it i always vote for no words can express the note Anong in the voice and manner of this speech. It was such a solemn rebuke to the presumptuous senator. To question any not of the great Massachusetts a i am a was to be guilty of a grave offence. Then the solemn Assurance that he always voted for it conveyed the belief that he went through that process every night at prayers. It reminded one of Pat Lotio people daring the War who were very a Tolve in the rear and when they could think of nothing else administered the oath of allegiance to everybody especially to All the old women in and out of petticoats who could not make a successful resistance. Senator Charles seemed to say a i vote for the fifteenth amendment every Day All Loyal people vote for the fifteenth amendment All the the impertinent senator was not to be put Down. He procured the Globe. The vote was searched and to senator crawl est mighty name did not appear. I left the solemn old Bassoon studying the Globe and expert shortly to see a Bill introduced by him to abolish that offensive and unreliable publication. A cat let out. During the late recess of Congress the efficient sergeant at arms of the Senate made the fearful discovery that an aged Thomas cat had possessed itself of an air passage under the floor of the Senate. Here was something to agitate the Gigantic let Elliot of the off Olal. What have a live oat under the floor of the Senate during exe Oatave session it was dreadful. Efforts were immediately made to persuade Thomas out. But the knowing old ones would not be persuaded. They tried intimidation but with like effect. Thomas laughed at their intimidation. They tried strategy. Tempting meats in the shape of hash from a cheap boarding House were placed at the opening. Thomas knew All about that and declined. He knew that if he ate a Devil of a Hill would be presented him immediately. Then Brimstone was resorted to. They burned Large quantities at the opening but a cat that has breathed the air of Congress in the galleries laughs at Brimstone. By me suggested that the Yoe president should try and smile him out others that the Hon. Garrett Davis should talk him oat. At last or. French constructed a dead fall of congressional globes. Poor Thomas saw nothing in the congressional globes. Nobody Ever did. He entered and was killed. A requiescat in the Globe did some Good. Let it be recorded. It killed a oat. D. P. A a Silance.
