It would seem from Gen. Sheridan's
recent report of the condition ot affairs
in Louisiana, and especially with re
lation to the part taken In tlie organi
zation of the Legislative Assembly of
that State by the military authorities
tin-re. tiuu tlie whole truth had not
been told, either by tlie telegrams or
corres)oiideuce furnished the Eastern
Journals. The charges of military
usurpation and overriding the rights
ot a Statu are shown hy this rebort to
be utterly groundless. It is a plain
provision of Constitutional law that
the military sliall be subordinate to
the civil authority ; and that the U. S.
military forces in Louisiana kept with
in the pale of this provision of the
Constitution during tlie recent troubles
In Louisiana is clearly and undeniably
proven by Gen. SeridanV report.
That this" provision of the Constitution
was' violated in Louisiana, was, upon
the Imperfect Information at first re
ceived, assumed by every person and
journal in the Union antagonistic to
the present Administration 5 and the
hope that Grant had at last . been
guilty of an act that would entirely
and completely wreck his administra
tion and the party that placed him in
power, added additional -inspiration"
to the speeches from the rostrum and
the columns of denunciation that came
teeming from tlie press. But this re
port clears a, way the charge of un
warranted military Interference, and
how conclusively that It only acted
as requested by the proper -civil au
thority. Gen. DeTrobriand used his
troop not only at tlie Instance of the
civil authorities, but at the request of
tlie. Democratic portion of the Legisla
tive Assembly. A resolution was
passed by tltat body, asking tlie Gen
eral to preserve the peace, ; and five
Democrats were appointed as a com
mittee to wait upon . him and make
known the action of the Assembly.
When Gen. DeTrobriand made his
appearance in the House, he was
greeted with loud applause from the
Democratic side of the House. He
then asked the Speaker (Wiltz). if he
could not maintain order without ap
pealing to the U. S. army officers,
ami tlie Speaker declared hat he could
not. The General then proceeded to
the lobby, made a brief speech, and
or!er was restored. Then, on motion
ot Mr. Dupree (a Democrat), tlie Spea
ker tlianked tlie General tor his prompt
action In behalf of law and order, and
the General withdrew. From - this
simple narration of facts, so far at
least, the assertion that the military
had usurped antliority and overridden
civil law is false and without a shadow
of truth to relieve its brazen effrontery.
But now the affair assumes another
slutpe. and Gen. DeTrobriand is again
called upon to exercise his authority.
Tlie first call came from a Democratic
minority, of the Legislature, acting
witlsottt any authority of law, but de
termined to force an illegal organiza
tion. The second call -comes from
fiftv-two regularly elected members ot
tlie Legislature, whose certificates of
election had been regularly made out
by tlie Returning Board, who, under
the sanction of tlie Governor of the
State and the Secretary the legally
authorized organizers of the Legisla
ting asked the Interference of the
military Xo secure a legal -and lawful
organization of that body. The Gen
eral, as in duty bound, did so inter
fere, and the legally elected members,
under a legally elected Governor,
were thus enabled to complete an or
ganization. Ami this waif simply an
act of the military in subordination to
legally constituted authority.
Gen. Sheridan, upon wliom the
fiercest invectives have been hurled by
the Democratic press all over the coun
try, was not in command of the mili
tary forces of Louisiana at tlie time,
but with the fearlessness that has al
ways cliaracterized tlie man and sol
dier he endorses the action of Gen.
DeTrobriand. He says that the very.alr
of New Orleaps Was filled with threats
of murder and assassination, and that
U.' S. troops were only used to pre
vent violence and the shedding of
blood. The city was actually in a
state of revolution ; the Metropolitan
police were powerless, and the State
Militia would have disregarded the
call of the Governor, and the Federal
antliority was tlie only force that
would be respected or prove effectual
in averting a reign of terror and blood
shed at that time. - And tins seems
to have been precisely the view taken
bv the Democratic side of the House
when the motion was made, and car
ried to call on the military authorities,
When the military' interfered at the
call of the Democracy, in tlse person
of Gen. DeTrobriand, it was applauded
and cheered by tlie" Democracy ; but
when the military bull gored the Dem
ocratic ox, a fearful bellowing is heard
from one end of the continent to the
other.'- - - ' '
. A recent telegram received from
Gen. Slierklan says thai; more than
twelve hundred murtlers have been
committed in Louisiana; and he gives
the number slain in each parish, show
ing that lynching and assassinations
have been of dally and almost hourly
occurrence for years, and that tlie
fiendish perpetrators yet go nnwhlp-
ped of Justice. ; And when this long
list ot assassinations and lynehhigs are
ftlveri. with all the details of time and
place, it may appear even to the most
nrelndlced mind that there is an or-
ranized banditti In the South that
ought to be suppressed" an organiza
tion Huuv if the civil power Is in-
snfScient to suppress, must be put down
by the military power of the Govern
ment. -

In tlie Tilton-Beecber trial at Brook
lyn. Judge Morris, on thelitis at 11 :15
A. M., opened for the plaintiff. He
continued hi argument through the
day. At 11 A. M. ou the 12th, he
resumed his argument. In tlie course
of whkh he introduced a letter written
by Beecher resigning tlie pastorate of
Plymouth Church, not heretofore
published. Following Is a copy of
the letter of resignation:
May 13th, 1S73.
To the Trustees of Plymouth Church:
I tender lierevvith my resignation of
the sacred ministry of Plymouth
Church. For two years l have stood
with great sorrow among, in order to
shield troui shame, a certain household,
hut a recent publication makes this no
longer possible. I resign my ministry.
Henry Waiu Beecher.
The reading ot the letter created a
sensation, as it was Hew evidence.
Morris conttnued, saying It was now
too late for Beeclier to play the role of
defendant of "Mrs. Tilton's honor.
He read numerous extracts from let
ters of Beeclier and otliers in tlie case.
all .of which, he - claimed, showed
Beeclier clearly to be a guilty man,
and that he luid seduced a member of
his church, and debanchet1 the wife
of his bosom friend. He said the
prosecution did not intend going out
ot Court until Tiltou was vindicated.
Morris was to conclude his speach
on the following day.
The unreconstructed, Old-fashioned
Bourbon press just now are amazingly
unanimous on one subject, and that is
ou the proposition that the army ought
to be reduced. They have suddenly
discovered that It is a terrible sin and
waste of the public funds to clothe and
feed such an immense number of the
"boys In blue." If through their in
sane bowlings and great display of
virtuous indignation at tlie enormous
cost of keeping up such a fearful large
army in a time of eace, they could
succeed in reducing the standing army
to a mere nothing, how happy and
contented they would be. With no
boys hi blue to molest or make them
afraid, the White Leaguers and other
troublous spirits in tlie South might
goon without fear uf molestation and
work out their own sweet will.
