liood replies to this, reminding Sherman that
he hull previously accepted his otfer ''toexctninge
pri-i'ii. rs of war in band at this moment ;" tint
there was no condition afached to tho acceptance
on Sliernmn's part of his oiler to exchange pri
soners, and Hint he ( Hood) regarded It as oblig i
toiy to the extent of tho number of prisoners
represented by Sherman to be within his juris
diction. He says thai Sherman's refusal to receive in
exchange his soldiers belonging to regiments
whose times are out, and whobuvo been ill",
chargul, discloses a lixed purpose on the part of
his Gotetnmint to doom to hopeless captivity
those prisoners w hose term of service has ex
pired or will soon expire; that Ihe new principle
wltii h Sherman seeks to interpoliro upon the
caitel of our respective Governments, as well
as upon the laws nnd customs of war, will
not lie sanctioned by him ; that all captives
taken in war who owe no obligation to the can
tors must stand upon tho aaine e ual footing;
that tho volunteer of a day and the conscript lor
tho wnr.who may be captured in war, arc equally
subject to all of the huideus nnd equally
entitled to all of Ihe rights secured by tho Inns
of nations ; that this pi ineiplo is distinctly eon
ceded in the caitel entered in'o by our respect
ive Governments, and is sanctioned by reason,
justice, and the public law of all civilized
nations. General Hood further says that Sher
man's avowal that this class of soldiers (those
whose term of service had expired ) will not bo
exchanged Is deeply regretted by him, and tint
he hopes that this declared policy of Sherman's
Government w ill be reconsidered, as it s an justly
oppressive lo those whom the hazards ot' military
seiviic 1ms rendered prisoners, nnd is violative
of the well-understood obligations assumed by a
Government towauls those who are enlisted in
its Bert ice.
Hood fu'ther infoimsShc man that his oiler to
him to elici t nn exchange of pi isoucrs, captured
during this enmpaiu'n, was not only approved,
but that the Govcrninct t placed at his .Ii-posul
for innneoiati' exchange, mini for man, all the
pri-oners at Andersonville.
Hood rinews to Sherman his otfer to exchange
prwhtr- as proposed in his liist communi a'.i on,
and here the matter ends.

His Opinions of the Administratioa
llosi iis, September Ii. The fallowing letter
of Gent rnl Fremont, withdraw ing fiom the cun
VB'S as candidate for the Presidency, is published
Iiosion, September 21. Gentlemen: I feel it
my duty to make one step m. re in the diiction
indicated by my letter of tho " V.h of August, and
withdraw my niiine from tho list of candidates.
The Presidential question has, in ctlect, bocu
entered upon iu such a way that tho union of the
Republican party has become a paramount neces
sity. The policy of the Democratic party aiguilles
either separation or re-c-tablishiuent with sla
very. Ihe Chicago platform Is simply separation.
Gi neral McClellau's letter of acceptance is re
istahllshnient wi'h slaveiy.
The Republican candidate, on tho contrary, is
phdgid to the re establishment of the Union
without slavery; and however hesitating bis
policy may be, tho pressure of his party will, we
may hope, force him to it.
llctwecn these issues, I think, no man of the
liberal parly can remain iu doubt, and I believe
I am consistent with my antecedents iu with
drawing not to aid in the triumph of Mr. Lin
coin, but to do my part towards preventing the
election of the Democratic candidate.
Iu rcsiect to Mr. Lincoln, I coutmuo to hold
exactly the sentiments contained in my letter of
acceptance. 1 consider that his administration
has been politically, militarily, and linanel illy a
failure, and that its necessnry continuance is a
came of regret for the country.
There never was a greilcr unanimity iu a
country than was exhibited here at the full of
Sumter, nnd the South was powerless in the face
of it; hut Mr. Lincoln completely paraly.ed this
gi Liroiis feeling. He de .troy ed the strength of
tho position und divided tho North, when he
declared to the South that slavery should be pro
tected. He has built up for the South a strength
which otherwise they could have never attained,
and this has given them uu advocate on the Chi
The Cleveland Convention was to have been an
open avowal of that condemnation which men had
been freely expressing to each other for tho past
two years, and w hich had been made fully kuon n

of affairs, leading men w ere not found willing to
make public a dissatisfaction uud condemnation
which could have rendered Mr. Lincoln's nomi
nation impossible, and their continued silence

among the people which leaves now no ehnlec.

sure of success; divided, the result of the Presi

another letter from General Fremont, iu which
he givis his reasons for withdrawing more fully ;
Mahant, September 17, lH'il. Gentlcmon : I
eucli se yon my letter of reply to an invitation
from some of my Republican frieuds to meet them
at Faneuil Hall.
In declining their invitation I have inform ;d
tlxmof my intention to stand aside from the
Ficsidi ntiul cuiiMiss, and assigned my reasons
for doing so. To avoid repetition, I enclose you
the letter, communicating to you now ollleially
my desire to withdraw my name from the list of
In this decision I have the approval of such of
our friends us I hae been able to consult. I
have thought it not prudent to Incur tho louger
delay of consulting others, but I have reason to
believe that they will unite with mo fully upon
the propriety of the step I have taken.
Hut iu withdrawing from the post of candidate,
I do not intend in uny way to withdraw from iny
share In the labor which we jointly undertook to
secure tho triumph of the ideas represented by
the Radical Democracy. Whatever the next
administration may be, we owe it to ourselves to
form a phalanx, compact, andcapahle.hy its tho
rough unity, of exercising a pressure strong
enough to insure the eventual success of the
principles lor which we have been contending
the re-estiiblishiucnt of the Union, the abolition of
slavery, and practical respect for liberty. In the
piescnt composition of parties It is indispensable
that earnest men should devote themselves to
watching the progress and Insuring tlio success
of these issues, regardless of nu n or parties.
Mr. Lincoln says he does not lead, but follows
the will of tho people. It remains then for the
people, in the event of his re-election, vigilantly
to require the following at his hands ; and further
to require, that in the execution of his duties
he keep scrupulously within the Constitution and
the laws; tu make him rceognic that he holds
his place iiiitl his power not ns belonging to him
self, hut as a really faithful servant of the people.
This is the important duty which we have uow
Although as representatives ot the Cleveland
movement we surrender our functions, the duty

The New York Herald this morning says: '
"The auction sale of wool announced for yester
day was largely attended, bat thero was a lack of .
spiiit iu the (.killing, though the entire catalogue
was disposed of at prices below current rates, as)
follows: 37 1,600 lbs. fleece at U-0, 1-03, 140);
bales tub at $1-17, 10 hales low unwashed Mecca
at fi'c., IS halos line Mestina at 40( 4 '!., 20 do.
Cape wool at So(a .'i3e., and 10 do. superior i
Cupe at Clic. liefore tho sale, tij.OOO lbs. fleece ;

The New York 'WAMu;this moruing says:
" Money Is abundant at 7 per cent, on call, and .
more olfc ring than brokers cuu use. Iu commer- .
cial hills there is nothing new. Host names sell '
1118(110 per cent., and a wide selection of good i
paper cuu be bad at 10(. 12 per cent- The street ;
lias been more quiet than for a long timo, and
little di-position was shown to make new enpiae- '
incuts. Tbo details of the news from General i
.Sheridan's command have strengthened tuj
opinion that the Rcbelllou is rapidly drawl:. to '
a close, and prudent people aro preparing for a '
leturu to low prices for gold aud goods."
