A an official copy of Tho order Ira sued a Gay major general Winfield s. Hancock a commander of Tho fifth military District dated Headquarters in new Orleans Louisiana on the 29th Day of november has reached me through Tho regular channels of the or department and i herewith communicate it to Congress for such action As May seem to be proper in View of All Tho circumstances. It will to perceive. De that general Hancock announces that he will make Tho Law Tho Rule of his conduct that he will uphold Tho courts and other civil authorities in Tho porno rms no of their proper1 duties and that he will use his military Power Only to preserve Tho peace an enforce the Law. To declared very explicitly that the sacred right of Tho trial by jury and Tho privilege of the Hareas Corpus shall not to crushed out or trodden under foot he goes further Ami in Ohio Comprelli Eusivo sentence asserts a that the principles of american Liberty Aro still Tho inc Ritacca of the people and Ever should be. When a great Soldier with unrestricted Power in Liis bands to oppress his fellow Mon voluntarily foregoes the Chance of Gratifying his selfish ambition and devotes himself to the duty of building up the liberties it and strengthening the Laws of his country. Ii presents an example of Tho highest Public virtue that human nature is capable of practising. The strongest claims of Washington to to first in Wai first in Peaco and first in Tho hearts of his countrymen is founded in the great fact that in. All his illustrious career he scrupulous i abstained from violating the Logal Aud constitutional a rights of his fellow citizens. When he eur rendered his commission to Congress the president of that body spoke his highest Praise in saying that he always regarded the rights of the civil authorities through All dangers and Clis asters. Whatever Power above the Law courted his acceptance to calmly put temptation aside. By such magnanimous hots of forbearance to. Won the Universal admiration of Mankind and loft a name which has no rival in the history of the world. I am far from saying that general Hancock is Tho Only officer of Tho american army who is influenced by the example of Washington. Doubtless thousands of them Are faithfully devoted to the principles for which the men of the revolution Laid Dowie their lives but the distinguished Honor belongs to him of being the first officer in High command South of the Potomac since the close of the civil War who has Given utterance to these Noble sentiments in the form of a military order. I respectfully suggest to Congress that some Public recognition of general Hancock a patriotic conduct is due if not to him to the friends of Law and Justice. Throughout the country of such an act a a his at such a time it is but fit that the dig nity should be vindicated and the virtue proclaimed so that its As an example May not be lost to the nation.
