Washington sept. 24.�?the following is Hancock a a speech citizens Washington i thank you for this testimony your approbation my past services and Confidence in my ability to perform my duty in a new arid different sphere. Educated As a Soldier in the military school our country and the Fields the mexican War and american rebellion i need not assure you that my course As a District commander will be characterized by the same strict soldierly obedience to the Law then taught me As a Soldier. I know no guide higher duty. Mise representation and mis construction arising from the passions the hour and spread by those who do not know that Devotion to duty Lias governed my actions in every trying hour May meet me but i fear them not my highest Pride will be to perform the duties my new sphere not in the interests parties partisans but for the Benefit my country the Honor my profession and i Trust also for the welfare the people committed to my care. I ask then citizens that i May not be judged in Advance and that time May be permitted to develop my actions. Judge me when i act by the deeds i May perform and conscious my Devotion to duty and my country i shall be satisfied with your verdict. And if a generous country shall approve my actions in the future As it has in the Piast my highest ambition will have been achieved. As a Soldier i so to administer the Laws rather than discuss them if i can administer them in a spirit with due Charity to the governed and to the satisfaction my country i shall indeed be Happy in the consciousness a duty Well performed. I am about to leave your City the capital our country bearing the proud name Washington. As an american Citi Tizen the rapid development and increase its wealth Beauty and Prosperity is a matter in which i too am deeply interested but far far beyond this citizens Washington. I rejoice with you that in the trying hour the rebellion the capital our nation contributed As freely in proportion As any state the Union to the Brave Volunteer army which has demonstrate to the world the strength and invincibility a Republican form government. I shall carry with me the recollections this occasion arid when i return May 1 not Hope that none who Are Here present in person in spirit will regret their participation in the honors you have done me to right. Wendell Phillips Grant. Not believing much in Grant myself either in Bis civil capacity to govern in his Republican principles i can see that he is the stake played for at Washington. Both parties Are playing their cards for. This. The Johnson party Are anxious to get Grant into their hands in which Case they will so Compromise him that his popularity and reputation will be damaged to such an extent As to Render any after opposition his should he attempt such perfectly harmless. This was the objector making him Secretary War. And he has fully thus far come up to their anticipations. The conservative republicans the other hand Are anxious to catch him As their Trump card. But As for Grant himself he done nothing but Blunder since he took Stanton s place. He has not strengthened his position in any Way. He is disturbed by the president and he is fast losing the Confidence the people and All the popularity he once possessed and unless his friends Trumbull Schenck and Washburne come to his Rescue he wiil to lost to sight very soon. I do not think it a honorable politic in a Man to accept offices Grant has and to Issue orders none which he approves but against All which he delights to protest. And still general Grant is the Pivot our present affairs. In the Melee thai is going he will Loso All Chance being to As the candidate any party for the nest presidency. I do not believe in the reports that Grant conferred with Stanton before he succeeded him and took Possession the i believe and Wheir Tho truth comes out i will be found in the rights that Grant at once accepted the office and the first intimation that Stanton received was the note in which Grant so informed him. This conference business is All an invention Grant s friends and the Story that he had a private understanding with Stanton is All Gammon put Forward to Savo his reputation. I am very confident this. The Story the conference i do not believe and i have the most thorough Faith that when the truth is known it will be found that Grant took the office Secretary War without any previous consultation with Stanton thus proving a readiness to give Tho presi Denila degree Power far beyond what his friends Are willing to allow. I have no More Faith in Grant to Day than i had six months ago and certainly Tho great mass the people have lost Faith in him a Ince l is acceptance Stanton a place. I think if to turns round now and proves Loyal to Tho american people it will be in consequence undergoing a change heart in the very trial through which he is now passing. He Lias evinced no desire to carry out what had been Stanton a purposes. Jle has Allied himself with new friends a with Johnson and Seward whose whole aim is to use him for their own ends and discard him when to has served their0 purpose. I do not Seo any self respect consistency in the Leader a great nation submitting to Issue orders he disapproves merely contenting himself with protesting against them. He has gained nothing by going into Tho War department lie can do nothing As Secretary War he could not do better As general. I think now unless his friends Trumbull and Washburne. Prevent him malting some tin pardonable mistake the country will look to Sheridan some other military favorite for obituary. Major general cables Griffin United states army. n. Y. Herald sept. 16. Major general Charles Griffin whose death As having occurred yesterday morning is elsewhere announced in a telegraphic report from Galveston Texas that officer having been temporarily invested with the command the fifth military District upon Tho removal general Sheridan was born in Ohio graduated at West Point in 1847, and was a classmate generals Burnside and Ayers. Entering the artillery service he was soon after his graduation ordered to Mexico and commanded a company under general Patterson in the Campaign from Vera Cruz to Puebla. Soon after he was ordered to Florida in january 1848and in the ensuing december to old Point Comfort. In july 1849, to was promoted to the rank first lieutenant and having been placed in command a company cavalry was ordered to new Mexico where he remained until 1854, serving with distinction in Tho Navajo campaigns and taking part in other expeditions. Joining a Light Battery at fort Mchenry the Young lieutenant was ordered to fort Hamilton Early in the Spring 1857, remaining however but a few months and afterwards being ordered Westward to Minnesota in command a Compario. From Minnesota his command was. Ordered to Kansas and thence in october the same year he revisited new Mexico in command an escort to the governor that territory whence returning through Texas he joined his own proper command at fort in april following having been assigned with his company to form a portion the com rna Iid colonel Burke at fort Riley he reported it that place for duty remaining until 1859, when he was sent to fortress Monroe where soon after he received an appointment As instructor artillery at West Point in which capacity to served until the breaking out the War in 1861. Iii january that memorable year he received orders to Cross the mountains with his Battery known As the West Point Battery to the Railroad and thence to proceed direct to Washington. In command this Battery which was organized As Battery d the 5th artillery Tho Young officer fought with heroic bravery at the first Battle Bull run remaining until june 2g, 1862, in the capacity Captain the artillery when he was commissioned As a brigadier general and bore an honorable part in Mcclellan a Campaign the Peninsula winning distinction at the Battle Gaines Mill and commanding even the the admiration the again at Malvern Hill general Griffin in command the artillery supported his brigade against Tho impetuous assault Magruder hurling Back the masses Tho enemy and contributing most signally to the Success the Day. The army the Potomac having been ordered to the assistance the beleaguered general Pope general Griffin a command relieved a portion Popes worn out. Legions at Ely a Ford and subsequently at Warrenton Junction. About the 1st october having been promoted to the command a division he took part with distinguished Success in the Battle Antietam fought subsequently under general burnsid9 at Fredericksburg and still later accompanied general Hooker across the River and bore himself gallantly through that general a Brief and unfortunate Campaign. Under Date november 1, 1s64, general Griffin in company with generals Ayres and Crawford was made Brevet major general. General Griffin was present at the Battle Gettysburg but subsequently obtained leave absence his health having been considerably impaired and rejoined the army the Potomac just before the Battle the Wilder nest. From that time general Griffin bore a part in every action in which the army the Potomac was engaged and at the Battle five Forks so distinguished himself As to be assigned to the command the fifth army corps which position he held with Honor unti the final Triumph the army the Potomac. It was general Griffin who superseded the impetuous Warren and the former had proved himself in every Way worthy to Wear the Mantle the latter having been identified with the corps from its organization and being in Many respects similar to Warren in the Quality his military leadership. Both too were men volcanic and irascible tem per and used oaths and artillery with equal facility though the nervousness and ill health general Griffin no doubt contributed not a Little to Render his temper unsteady poise. In personal courage Warren and Griffin were Peers and Peers any in the service and both had an inanimate dislike pretend. Sion and Braggadocio which rendered them men to give no Quarter to either weakness so common among men overweening vanities. Or vanity transcending their Merit. In the Spring 18g5, for Gallant and Meri Torsions service during the War Brevet major general Griffin the Volunteer service being in rank by virtue Bis rank in that service Brevet lieutenant colonel United states army was promoted to the rank Brevet colonel and under Date August 10, 18g5, was assigned to the command the District Maine having his Headquarters at Portland. In january 1866, january 13 by an order reducing the military forces Tho United states general Griffin was among those mustered out the Volunteer service being reduced thereby to the rank Captain in the regular army. Subsequently however being reinstated he was assigned to Tho command the department Texas Long under the command the Gallant Weitzel which by act Congress became part the fifth military District. As sub commander general Griffin served under Sheridan having a his Headquarters at Galveston texa9. On the 26th August 18g7, general Griffin superseded general Sheridan in temporary command the District Pend Itig the arrival Sheridan a appointed successor still at his own request retaining his Headquarters at Galveston. _ general Griffin has Altaj a been almost an invalid and his career presents a Brilliant example what May to accomplished by Force will under Adverse physical circumstances. To was appointed to weft Point from Ohio his native state and leaves a military record which the state vineyards May Well to proud.
