To a lie editor of Tiu Tribune sir your special Washington correspondent of yesterday telegraphs a it is said on Good authority that Sheridan had made out an order for Tho arrest and trial before a military commission of general Steedman and. General Rosseau for impeding reconstruction. The Law gives him a that Power. Rosseau and step Man suddenly left now Orleans and the arrest was thus that general Sheridan made out an order for the arrest of and myself May to True but i neither know nor do i believe it to be True. The insinuation in Tho above paragraph that a generals Steedman and Rosseau suddenly loft new Orleans to avoid arrest is. Simply a malicious if not a malignant invention and its author is either a very credulous and simple or else a very artful or reckless Fabricator. As your correspondent Shields himself behind Tho words a it is said on Good authority who is supposed to be no of further responsible in Tho premises than any other journalist in his Peculiar department but As perhaps it will not do to let Tho statement go a contradicted. I am rather forced into Tho arrogance of this reply. Let me Tell you or. Editor that general Sheridan know perfectly Well and from my own lips the Day and hour of the Day of my departure from new orly ans and so had full Opportunity to enforce on arrest if indeed he designed one. Perhaps it is Well enough to add As a fact within my knowledge that general Stedman who was to have loft now Orleans with me was detained Irp that City for several Days after my departure by Tho serious illness of a Nephew. I have not heard that any Effort was a indo to arrest him. It is not the habit of either general Stedman or myself to depart suddenly. It yours very respectfully a Lovell h. Rosseau. Alluding to Thomas s sickness the Tribune says there is still a Chance for Rousseau. New York August 24.-rit.is stated that letters Havo been received Here by prominent politicians from members of Congress which state that the Only Somody left to Securo reconstruction is Tho impeachment of Tho president.

Aug. 2g.�?Tho excitement in the new York Gold room had its origin in the National intelligencer a editorial of this morning which Only tells an old Story that the Cabinet in View of Stanton a tenacious Ness a had informally placed their office at the disposal of the president. There is no probability of immediate Cabinet changes. Washington lug. 20.�?grant�?Ts letter to the president says that the people who Havo sacrificed their lives and spent their dollars for the country a preservation Are evidently opposed to Sheridan a removal he performed his duties faithfully and intelligently. His removal will be regarded As an Effort to defeat the congressional views and embolden to renewed opposition those who attempted to., break up the government by arms. A general Thomas has repeatedly objected to being placed in charge of either of Tho five districts. Hancock a department is so intricate that he should it be removed. Grant adds there Are military pecuniary and above All patriotic reasons Why this order should not be insisted upon. The president in his reply is not aware that the question of general Sheridan a retention has been submitted to the people. It would be unjust to Tho army to assume that general Sheridan alone is capable of commanding the fifth District general Thomas a administration of the i department of the Cumberland will compare favourably with general Sheridan a government of the fifth District. General Sheridan has rendered himself obnoxious by the manner of executing Law and More so by assuming authority not granted him. This Rule has been one of absolute tyranny without reference to the principals of our government or the nature of its free institutions his course has seriously interfered with Tho har. Mou Caus and speedy execution of the acts of Congress and his removal cannot be regarded As an Effort to defeat them. The object of the change is to facilitate their execution throughout. An officer who never failed to obey the statutes of the land and within his jurisdiction like obedience from others. The president compliments generals Thomas and Hancock and feels assured that under general Sherman a guidance general Sheridan will win Honor in fighting Tho indians. In conclusion Tho president fails to perceive any military pecuniary or patriotic reasons Why this order should not be carried into of Lent.

This is an Afi Lair in which Many excellent and intelligent men the main pillars of society Havo no vote no . Negroes together with the less reliable Whites Are to have things All their own Way. The landless homeless poverty stricken vicious and avaricious Are to Rule and Rule unchecked so far As we can help it. The negroes incline to withdraw from Tho influences of. The Whites. They have their secret c political meetings prompted by a few Whites of questionable integrity some natives some Northern men. The chief incentive that which gives interest and activity to to Weir organizations seizure it of property of. The Whites of real. And personal and division. Among the negroes.
