Disobey or protest against. The general says that before entering on Tho duties of Secretary he had a consultation and understanding with or. Stanton which was perfectly satisfactory to both parties. Or. Stanton admits that general Grant could not do otherwise than obey John soul a order. The president has intimated that to will need general Grant in the office but a Short time Only a until he can make a suitable appointment. He intimates further that he will offer tit War office to sex governor John a. Andrew of a amp Sadi settes but no Cue believes Hini. All his conversations relative to an appointment to the a office. A Are contradictory nne there is really no authentic statement from. Him As to who will receive the a Point Meir a he makes one statement one minute to e Democrat and an entirely different statement a the next time to a Republican. ,.
