    GENERAL CANBrS REPORT,
"Military DeOpAtism.
A _Fair Specimen Rebel.- Blander.
The following documents present a fair speci
men of the way in which Democratic ammuni
tion is manufactured at the South. General
Canby's administration of military affairs, as
shown by his able letter to General Grant, was,
like that' of Gen. Meade, his present successor,
humane, lenient and wise. The "military
despotism" of such rile would be a blessing to
the Smith if it could be Indefinitely continued :
Gratrossnono, October 21st, 1867.—His Excel
lency Gorernar Worth :—Sin : On Friday last
Jesse C. Griffith, the Sheriff of Caswell county—
a man of Arne heart and steadfast principles
whonever was classed by those who knew him
with the advocates of secession, was arrested by
order of the military authorities, and carried to
Charleston to answer charges preferred against
him by one William Johnson, lately convicted of
burglary in the Superior Court of Caswell, who
owes his opportunity to prefer such charges to
the mistaken views of the claims of mercy enter
tained by , you and myself .and others. On request
4:d myself and others you were pleased to grout
him a gracious pardon—he promised to leave the
State, but has vlolapal his promise. We, who
itsked you to extend clemency to, hlm,_were mis
ted by his professiods of patience, and gave un
due weight to''the circumstances of his youth,
and the disordered state Of the country at the time
the crime was perpetrated. We were influenced
by feelings but too easily excited in favor of
convicted criminals—you were influenced in some
degree, at least, by our request; 'and 'the''
re
sult is that a felon, deserving death. still lives to
disturb good men and endanger the peace and
safety of society. Aided by one Tourgee, and
another individual by the .name of O'Connell, he
sine succeeded in having Mr. Griffith arrested,
carried away from his family; and subjected to
vexations and expensive military, trial, for no
other crime - thin that , :of having kept Mat safely

of Mr. Griffith, and, make known to the military

STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA, EXECUTIVE DE-
I'ARTNICNT, RALEIGH, October 23d, 1867.—T0
A ndrew Johnson, President of the United States.—
DEAR Sin : I do not know whether you inter
fere in, any way with the action, of military com
mandants. If not, this communication will be
useless except as a mat ter of personal informa
tion. A practice has prevailed in the State and
still prevails, of having , citizens arrested and Im
prisoned by military authority upon charges
often made by persons of bad character, the
charges and the names of the persons preferring
them being concealed from the party arrested.
Several arrests have been made in this State and
the accused transported to distant places of con
finement, and detained as prisoners for months
without preliminary trial or notice of the
cause of imprisonment. I have earnestly
remonstAted against the iniquity of
such proceeding to Gen. Sickles and
Gen. Canby. To-day I am informed' that the
Sheriff of Caswell, Mr. Jesse C. Griffith, a man of
exemplary character, personal and political, has
been arrested and carried a prisoner to Charles
ton, on some unknown charge preferred by one
William Johnson and one Tourgee, both of them
men of the most detestable moral characW. No
form of military despotism can be more 'terrible
to the orderly citizen than these summary
arrests and imprisonments in forts distant from
the homes of the parties arrested without pre
liminary trial. It gives mean partisan malevo
lence a feast, without fear of molestation.
I have the honor to be yours very respectfully.
Pignedi JONATHAN WORTH,
Governor of N. C.
HEADQUARTERS SECOND MILITARY DISTRICT,
CHARLESTON, S. C., Nov. 14, 1867.—T0 Chief of
Staff, Headquarters of the Army, Washington, D.
have the honor to acknowledge the
receipt of i a communication from Governor
Worth. of North Carolina, to hie Excellency the
President, dated October 23d, tilt., and referred
to me for report, and to report :
That the complaint is special and general in
its character—special as it relates to the case of
Mr. Griffith, the sheriff of Caswell county, and
general in the allegation that "a practice has
prevailed in this State (North Carolina), and
still prevails, of having citizens arrested and im
prisoned by military authority, upon charges
often made by persons of bad character, the
charges and the names of the persons preferring
them being concealed from the poly arrealed.
Several arrests have been made in this State and
the accused transported to distant places of c-n
-finement, and detained as prisoners for mou the
without preliminary trial or notice of the cause
of imprisonment. I have earnestly remoreera ed
against the iniquity of such proceediugs to
General Sickles and General Canby "
The history of the case in which the sheriff
is implicated is given in the complaint made by
Captain Tourgee (A); the report made by Lieut.
O'Connell (B), to whom the complaint was
referred for investigation; the report of the Pro
vost Marshal General (C), and the report of the
Judge Advocate (D). These reports were fully
supported by affidavits and corroborated in ma
terna points by the records of the civil courts of
North Carolina, transcripts from which formed
a part of the record of this case. Upon these
facts, I ordered the arrest and trial of the sheriff
as one of the agents' of the injustice and oppres
sion that had been practiced upon Johnson, not
as punishment for any crime committed by him
as ostensibly charged, but in reality on account
of hiS Union sentiments and his services in the
Union army. The sheriff was arrested and
- brought - MIME city (not thiety-six hours from
hie home) because a military commission was
then in session at this place and a speedy trial
could more readily be secured to him here
than elsewhere. Not being ready for trial,
he was released on his own recognizance to
appear for trial at a day set, and was
allowed to return to his home. Subsequently
the trial: was again postponed so as
not to interfere with the public duties of one of
his witnesses, (the Solicitor of Caswell county),
and when the trial was concluded, he was dis
chargea and allowed to return home to await the
result. This is the sum of the iniquity so far as
he sheriff is concerned, unless it be an iniquity
to bring any one to trial who is charged with
crime or misconduct. But the history of this
case in its own merits, and in its relation to kin,
dred cases in North Carolina, and to the Gover
nor's complaint,deserves a more extended notice.
By the act of the General Assembly of North
Carolina, ratified on the 22d day of December,
1866, a general amnesty and pardon for offences
against the criminal laws of the State, committed
by persons in the civil or military service of the
State, "of the late Confederate States, or as of
ere and soldiers of the armies of the United
States" was granted. The provisions of the law
are comprehensive, and the protection ample in
the case of all organizations or associations, re
gular or irregular, public or private, in aid of the
rebellion; and it covers the case or officers and
soidlers in regular organizations in the service of
the United States, but it does not cover the
eases of loyal North Carolinians, and there were
many such, who were in our service
as scouts, spies, Ankles, etc., etc.—or who either
singly or in parties resisted the rebellion,deserted
Iron) the rebel army, or fled from the rebel con
scription, and in so doing committed acts of war,
legitimate under the laws of war but Criminal
under the laws of peace. By 'lngenious ornis
eion ran d ingenious construction of ttio vital sec
tions of the Isw, thejustilleation of persona,
both 111 criminal anti civil prosrruti ,, ns depends
upon the laws "of the State or la:, Confederate
States GoVermaent 4 "and notupon the laws of the
United States Government—sections 1 %WI
a—or upon the fact that persons &t , t h e
or military service of the United at 'he
time the alleged offence was committed, wer e
aillicere or privates ju "either of the above -mimed'
(Confederate and Statel•eirganlzation),-ece. 2—or
unless they were associated toirether.for the prd
serration of lawand order (under Ceeifederate or,
State law).' The citizen who - reinaincid loyal to
the Government of the United Statesiwho resisted
rebellion,who recognized& higher allegiance than
'State allegiance, and , obeyed 'rehigher law than
:State or Donfederate 19V—is not protected by ate
provisions of the Act. The sentiment of the
community hat, no doubt, prevented many pros
ecutions of this kind ; but they have oc
curred and do still occur in each frequency as to
require such action as will preserve the faith and
maintain the dignity of the Government. The
case of Johnson is of this class, but since the ar
rest of the Sheriff it is alleged that ho is a bas
tard, a man- of notoriously bad character and a
terror to the community in which he lived, and
that the crime for which ho was tried was only
one,of a series of burglaries and larcenies which
he and his associates (Lea , and a younger John
son) had committed for the' sake of plunder, and
that the complaint upon which he was arrested
was made- by his own father. This =trail be
true, but the bastardy is not his sio, nor does his
alleged bad character justify the illegal ruling of
the Court by which evidence of his desertion
from the Rebel and his service in the Union army
was admitted. The facie proven arikthat John
son was a deserter from the Rebel 'army; that ho
did make his way to the Union lines and entered
the Union army; „ that he was appointed a re
cruiting officer for the 10th Tennessee Volunteer
Cavalry; that he served faithfully to the end of
the war, and that he was capecially useful (from
his knowledge of the country) as a guide
to the Union troops in, their operations
in North Carolina. Johnson claims
that while endeavoring to make his
escape from the "conscript hunters," he and
his associates entered a house,and without doing
violence to anyone, took therefrom articles of
food and $5 in Confederate money, (to the value
in all of $25) necessary to enable him to reach
the Union lines. The counter allegation is that
be was a common plunderer and only fled to the
tinion lines to escepe punishment for his crimes.
It will be observed that Johnson's associates
(Lea and the younger Johnson), who were
arrested and tried during the rebellion, were con
victed of larceny, only, and were pardoned on
the, condition of entering the rebel army, while
Johnson, . after an honorable gantlet in the United
Signs army, was tried for the same offence and
under the'oldiadieiment, and was,senteneed to death
for a constructive bur:glary. The decision of the
Supreme Court of North Carolina upon Johnson's
appeal as to theqirestion of law is transmitted
(marked E). As a question of public
law and under' the , President's proclamation of
the 29th of April , 1865, the old indictment was a
nullity. It was found, by the grand jury of a
Court whose process ran in the name of a hostile
Government or pretended Government, and
which 'passed out of existence with the
overthrow of the Government under which it
was organiZed. If tried at all, the prisoner was
entitled to be tried under a new presentment or
indietment by a grand jury of the present, and
not of the displaced rebel, government of North
Carolina. All proceedings under the old indict
ment were illegal and void—the imprisonment
was a false imprisonment, and if the sen
tence had been executed it would have been a
murder. The conclusion reached atter a careful
examination of the evidence in this case, was
that Johnson was tried, not for the offence for
which he was indicted, and ostensibly tried, but
in reality tor being "a deserter from the rebel
army," for "baring guided Stoneman in his raid
into North Carolina and for his open and avowed
hostility to, the secessionists,• and that ho was
convicted because he , was a deserter and a traitor
to the Confederate cause and ought to be hung
anyhow." This conviction is not disturbed by any
new fact presented by the Governor. In this
connection I submit four cases coming up from
North Carolina within the last -few days, in
which I have enjoined farther proceedings
(marked F.) The first is the complaint of a father
in relation to the killing of his three sons who
had deserted from or had' evaded the rebel ser
vice. They were killed by members of the home
guard, and the murderers are protected by the
Amnesty Act of December 22, 1866. (F 1). The
second is the case of John Metcalf, late a private
of Company E.,3d N. C. Mounted Infantry,in the
service of the United States. He is not protected
by the Amnesty Act. (F 2). The third is the
ease of a homicide committed in 1861, growing
out of the political excitement at the election of
delegates for the secession convention that took
North Carolina out of the Union. (F 3). The
fourth is the ease of a recruiting agent in the ser
vice of the United States, and his case is so
clearly stated by his attorney, an ox-rebel officer
of rank and distinction, that I transmit an ex
tract from his application. He is not protected
by the Amnesty Act. (F 4). I also transmit a
copy of this act (H), and of the General Order
(A), which I have found it necessary to issue in
order to give it an impartial application. I have
uniformly, to the extent of my influence and
authority, both in the Southwest and here,
stayed all civil and criminal prosecutions grow
ing out of the personal or political
animosities engendered by the years
of civil strife through which we have passed, and
if in order to secure this end it be necessary to
brine some offenders to justice, it will be done,
although the courts may be regarded by the
Governor of North Carolina as oppressive and
iniquitous. The "one Tourgee" of the Govern
or's correspondent, and who is denounced by the
Governor himself as "of the most detestable
moral character," was a captain of the 105th
Ohio Volunteer Infantry, and Judge Advocate
of the 14th Army Corps, and was the person to
a horn Johnson in his extremity would naturally
appeal for assistance. His connection with the
case, so far as my own action is concerned, com
menced and ended with his application of April
111 h, 1865 (A), in Johnson's behalf. The Gov
ernor's definition of his character isnot accepted.
The other "individual named O'Connell" was and
is an officer of the Bth Infantry. His connection
with the case is confined to the official report (B)
of au investigation which he was ordered by the
District Commander to make.
The general branch of the Governor's com
plaint is to the effect that "several arrests have
been made in this State (North Carolina), and the
accused transported to distant places of confine
ment aid retained as prisoners for months with
out preliminary trial or notice of cause of im
prisonment I have earnestly remonstrated
against the iniquity of Buell proceedings, both to
General Sickles and GemBPal Canby." The Gov
ernor of North Carolina has made two remon
strances on this subject to me. The first was
dated on the 11th of September, 1867, and the
second on the 25th of October, 1867 and is upon
the same subject as his complaint, two days
earlier, to hie Excellency the President. As this
remonstrance is fully reported upon in this com
munication, I will confine my remarks to the
first, a copy of which marked (I) is transmitted
herewith. It will be seen that it refers to two
cases. The first relates to the arrest of
the members of an armed band who
broke into the jail, at Edenton, North Caro
lina, and rescued therefrom a person in the
custody of the civil authorities of North Carolina
upon the chi rge of murder. Tne arrests were
made upon the application of the Sheriff of
Chowan county. based upon the affidavits of the
jailor and his wife as to the forcible rescue. The
prisoners were sent to Fort Macon for safe-keep
ing until the civil authorities were prepared to
try them, and the commanding officer of that
poet was directed to admit them to bail if suitable
bail was offered. A copy of my answer to this
complaint is transmitted herewith, marked (K.)
I have more than once in years long past, and
before there was any serious question of rebel
lion—committed the same act of military des
potism. AB the commander of a military post,
and at the request of the civil authorities, I have
secured the arrest of criminals, and as an act of
comity and of public duty, held them
in my guard-house until the proper civil
authorities were prepared to take charke
of them. The second part of this remonstrance
relates to the case of Mr. Duncan G. Mcßae.
This gentleman was arrested for an alleged com
plicity in the murder of Archibald Beebe; but the
charge not being sustained, he was released on
the 29th of July, 1867. This case has heretofore
been brought to the notice of the General of the
army, and it is only necessary to recall its fea
tures by transmitting a copy (L) of the report of
the preliminary investigation which led to the
arrest, and of the report (M) of -the Judge Advo
cate of the Commission, of the reasons why he
should not be released without trial. The_grave
ness of the Govevnor's complaint in - thistase lies
to the alleged fact that Mr.,Keßtie,w'4 , tarriNited
upon the affidavit of a wcoMat of ill-fautti. As this
case wee concluded a month before rwliffitssigned
to this command, I did not consider it 'proper
to reopen it or to inquire into the character of
the woman, brit IL the allegation be true, it
touches the crellibility,iiot the competency of the
v Smelts ; and if no arrests are to be made nuleie
the witnesses are of good mere] character, much
of Ile crime of this world will pass unpunished,
THE DAILY EVENING- BULLETIN---PHILADELPHIA, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBAR 18, 1868.
It Is always to be regretted.that innocent persons
ehoulet,he arrested or sir to ly restraint
„
or inconvenience fromt. cruta o n .or un
'founded suspicion; but this the( inc ident of civil
as well as of military i s atestrt.; 'kayo :before
me now a consolidated ,reportF of " Mimes' com- -
mitted " in the District itf theperiodebinmencing
January lat, and endinKlietitember 80th, 1867, as
reported by the Sheriffs of .counties in North
Carolina and of Districts „in' South Carolina.
From this I select the follo wing statistics:
The number of murders committed by whites
was 50, blacks 44—total 100; - and the number of
arrests for murder in the same period was whites
95, blacks 83—total 180. 2d. Of assaults and bat
tery there were committed by whites 171, by
blacks 170—total 847; and the number of arrests
for these offences in the same period was whites
114, blacks 226-total 340 . Bd. The' number of
larcenies committed by whites was 188 and by
blacks 724—total 912; and, Mb number of arrests
for this offence in the slime period was, of whites
234, of blacks I,4o9—total 1,703. Assuming that
the number of arrests for crimes and offences
committed prior, to January: Ist is not greater
than the number that escaped arrest for crimes
committed since, the number of arrests made by
the civil authorities, under these three items,
upon false or Insufficient testimony is 864—0 r
more than 60 per cent. in excess of the crimes
committed. The same comparative relation ap
plies to the other items of this report.
Charges of military despotism are easily made,
and if they are accompanied by specific allega
tion of facts t are as easily disproved; but to a
charge so vague and indefinite as that made by
the Governor, I can only state that military
arrests are not made without previous investiga
tion 'or without strong evidence of guilt; that
prisoners aro not "transported , to distant places
of confinement and detained for months without
preliminary trial or notice of ' the cause of im
prisOnment." If - a speedy trial has not always
been secured, it has been`delayed in the interests
of the accused; and that when trials' have been
protracted, it has resulted from the unusual lati
tude allowed the prisoners In conducting their
defence. The records of the DlstricV are a con- ,
stunt denial of the Governor's charge:".So far as
this complaint applies , 'to me, the Governor's
statement to the President' • it not an in
genuous statement. At the date of this
statement the- . Governor - had made
but one remonstrance' to me on this subject, and
be knew by my letter of Sept.:l7, 1867 , th a t
in one of the cases cited in that remonstrance, the
arrests were - made -at the request of his own
agents and In aid of the civil: authorities; and in
the other ease, that it was conelfided . long before
I came to this commend;andwahliqoild my con
trol, except upon chargeo thit We prosecution
was malicious; and no such air& can be made
or sustained. As a general rule; Aliese etthiplainta
are disingenuous, also in the use that is made of
them by = beiit g published for political "effect,
with a knowledge th at the officer accused is re
strained by rules of military propriety from
making any public or counter-statement defence.

your attention to certain criminal prosecutions
now pending in the Superior Court of Law, to ,
Caldwell county, against William MeK. Blalock.
Blalock was a soldier of the United States, and
during the war, from his intimate acquaintance
with the comitryand his knowledge of the Union
men of this section, was detailed to secure re
cruits for that portion of the , Federal army
operating in East Tennessee. He was , provided
with recruiting papers, and made several trips
between the lines of the , two armies. Wh ile
engaged in collecting recruits and guiding them
into the Union lines, he was frequently compelled
to avail himself of the permission given him by
his commanding officer to provide himself and
party with food, horses and forage from the
country. For so doing not lead than twenty in
dictments, ranging from an indictment for forci
ble trespass to one for murder, have been found
against him. I have defended him In many cases,
and in no one of these has It ever been proved
that he took a single thing . maliciously, or for any
other than the purposes indicated in his orders.
I have no sympathy with Blalock ether than
arises from my professional connection with him,
having served throughout the entire war in the
armies of the Confederate States. I can be actu
ated by no other desire than to do my , duty to
him as counsel, and to see that ho has justice.

THE NORTH GERMAN TREATY-OFFICIAL '111(1J-
The following circular letters, issued by the
Minister of Justice and the Minister of the Inte
rior, respectively, of the North German Union,
are promulgated by the Department of State
for the information of those whom it may con
cern:
CIRCULAR OF THE MINISTER OF THE INTERIOR.
In concluding the treaty of the 22d February
of this year (Bulletin of Laws of the Confedera,
lion, p. 228) between the North German Confede
ration and the United States of America, It was
the prevailing intention that in conformity to ar
ticle second of this treaty the punishable action
committed by the unauthorized emigration of a
citizen of the Confederation to the United States
of America, should not be made the ground for u
penal prosecution upon the return of such per
son to his former country after an absence of not
less than five years, and that the punishment for
such aetion,even though already legally declared,
should not be consummated if the person has ac
quired in America the right of citizenship in con
formity to article one of said treaty.
The Royal Government is, therefore,lnstructed
in the cases indicated to abstain from recom
mending trial and punishment, and, in general
from every hind of prosecution, whenever the
person In question is able to produce the proof
that he has become a naturalized citizen of the
United States of America, in conformity with
the first clause of Article one. The proper
judicial authorities will bo furnished by
the Minister of Justice with an instruc
tion in all cases whenever legal sentences of
this hind , exist, to report officially the remis
sion, by way of grace, of the declared punish
ments and coats.

CIRCULAR OF THE MINISTER OF .lUSTWE.
In concluding the treaty of the 22d of Febru
ary of this year (Bulletin of Laws the Confed
eration, p. 228), agreed upon between the North
German Confederation and the United States of.
America, respecting the nationality of emigrants,
it was the prevailing intention:
That in conformity to the second article of that
treaty, the punishment incurred by punishable i
emigration s not be brought to execution on
occasion of a return of the emigrant to his origi
nal cone try,if the returning emigrant has obtained
naturalization in the other country in conformity
to the first article of the said treaty. In consid
eration whereof, in every case where legally valid
condemnations of this kind exist against such
persons, RA_ official report is to be made to tho
Minister of Justice respecting the remission of
the declared punishments ana costs by way of
grace, and in order to shorten and simplify the
matter, these recommendations are to be consol
idated in'n table, if the number of cases is — large
enough to justify a tabular form of report, Ber

CITY COUNCILS.:—A stated meeting was held
yetterday afternoon;.
Select-Brune4.—A remonstrance from-cltizens
_
of the Twenty-fourth Ward; agaimit 'laying a
track on Lancaster avenue, WU received and re
ferred; also, a protest against changing the pre
cinct Lone of Ninth division, Fourth yfard;slSo,
a petition signed by twenty-two , citizens; for a
change o f the, precinct house of First division,
bliteenth Ward.
Mr. Fox presented a resolution changing the
thee place of eiettion in this division to e southeast
corner of Front and - Launil streets. = This resolu- -
tion gave rise to a long debate, as to the. legal
right of Cannella to change a precinct house,
except when the old house is no longer "avail
able." In the present instance: the ground urged
for, the change waa tiutt, the old house is not of
convenient ACMES.'
In answer to this, the Republicazuo urged that
Council had the right to decide the availability of
a precinct house, and that it was proper to legis
late in this manner.
The resolution was adopted, yeas 13. nays 10.
A strictly party vote—the Democrats voting in
the negative.. •
Aeommunication was received from the Board
of Fire Directors informing Councils of the result
of the election by the Fire Department for Chief
and Assistant Engineers.
Mr. Gillingham asked for a division of the
question, and „the vote; was taken first on the
Chit f Engineer. Mr. Downey was confirmed by
a unamnions vote,
When the question came on confirming Wm.
Sweeney, Assistant Engineer of the. First District,
Mr. Fox moved to refer the name to the Com
mittee on Trust and Fire Depaxtment, and in this
connection presented a protest against the con
firmation of Mr. Sweeney as follows :
Geritiemen:—At a special meeting of the liar
moriv Fire Company, held on Wednesday even
g, Beptember 16th, the undersigned. as officers
of this company, were directed to protest
against the confirmation of the election of
Willlatn_fiVreeney for Astistant Engineer of the
First Fire Division, as he did not receive
a legal majority of the votes cast for said office,
as the representatives of the Fame Hose Company
and the Philadelphia Engine Company did not
east their votes as said companies voted, and as
they mere, by said companies directed to cast
_
them. M. H. DlcKueso N , President.
Gentlemen: We, the undersigned, membera of
the Board of Fire Directors:of the First Fire Dis
trict, do hereby'earnestly and emphatically pro
test against the reception of the vote of the
Fame Hose and Philadelphia Fire Companies,
knowisg that the votes •of those companies are
illegal. (This protest.was signed py the repre
sentatives of the Schuylkill Hose, Washington
Hose, Fmklin Fire Company, Southwark Hose,
Robert Morris ,Hose, Warren, Hose, Hope Fire
Company and Philadelphia Hose. J
There was also a communication, from. Samuel
P. :tines, Jr.,•of the Philadelphia Fire Company,
that his company cast 24 votes , for. Sweeney, and
27 for &art' but that the delegate of the company
in the Board voted for Mr. Sweeney. -
Mr.74lopkinropposed a - reference - of - these ci.YM
munications to the committee. - Councils have no
power beyond that , of confirmation 'or rejection,
and cannot decide a, contested election among the
Bremen. The proper place for a contest is before
the Board of • Fire Directors.
Mr. Marcus also opposed, the reference, and he
called attention to the fact ; that the protest pre
sented only One'aide of the question. The diffi
culty was that in the Board of Fire Directors Mr.
Sweeney had a majority of one; when a delegate
changed his vote from Sweeney. to Pollock, and
caused a tie between Sweeney and Semi, and then
it was_ that the charges complained of' •were made
in order to prevent the successful consummation
•of the attempt to cheat Mr. Sweeney of his elec
tion. All Councils can do is to confirm the re
port received from the Board of 'Directors, And
