From private letters received from that

This opinion seems to be shirred • to a
great extent, too n bythe Itepubllerm press.
Both may ha true. Yet there Is good
'ground to hope that Gen. Hancock, like
.his predecessors, will soon find there is
but one path for the true soldier to pur.
This rush upon him. by the rositimlt
rebel. was not made solely or principally
out of courtesy. Tory recommended'
him to remove a large number of present
officials and appoint' in their places men
who had bum active in the .Confeder

he would not hurry in the matter; that
he would take his own time , but would

On the next day came the riot. So well
lied the secrotof klunroe'a preparations

not anticipate what. Mr. Stanton is biam•

Chief ofPolloe andltis aids were riding
