GENERAL : Full of solicitude for the fu
ture of our country, I come with my
heart in my hand to learn the condition,
wishes, and intentions of the people of the i
i Southern States ; especially to ascertain
the sentiments of that body of brave, en- j
eigetic, and self-sacriticing men who, after
I sustaining the Confederacy for four years,
1 laid down their arms and swore allegiance
:to the Government of the United States,
I whose trusted and beloved leader you have
1 see that interpreting " State Rights "
to conflict with national unity has produc- j
ed a violent reaction against them, which
is drifting lis towards consolidation, and .
also that so great a country as onrs even
! now* is, certainly is to be, must have State
! governments to attend to local deiails, or
go farther and fare worse It is plain to
us at the West and Noith that the con
| tinuance of semi-anarchy, such as has ex
istid for the last three years in ten States
ol our Union, largely increases the danger
l of centralism, swells our national cxpen
j ditures, diminishes our productions, and
our revenue, inspires doubts of our polili-
J cal and financial stability, depreciates the
| value of our national bonds and currency,
and places the credit of tlie richest below
i that of the poorest nation in Christendom.
We know that the currency must be de
i predated as long as our bonds are below*
par, and that therefore the vast business
5 and commerce of the country must suffer
the terrible evil of a fluctuating standard
of value until we can remedy the evil con-
I dition of things at Ihe South. We also
, see otln r mischief quite possible, if not
probable, to arise, such as from the fail—
! ure of crops, a lceal insuirection, and
many other unforeseen contingencies
which may* still more depreciate our credit
and currency, provoke discontent and dis
order among our people, and bring dem
agogical agitation, revolution, repudiation,
ai<d a thousand unnamed evils and villain
ies upon us. We know that the interests
of the people of the South are for law
and order, and that they must share our
fate of good and til.
I believe—every one I know who re
flects believes—that if trie people of the
Southern States could be at peace, and
their energy and good-will heartily ap
plied to repair the wastes of war, reorgan
ize their business, set the freedmen peace
i fullv, prosperously and contentedly at
work ; invite capital, enterprise and labor
i from elsewhere to come freely amongst
them, they would soon rebuild their ruin—
' ed fortunes, multiply many fold the value
of their lands, establish public contidence
in our political stability, bring our govern
ment bonds to premium, our currency to a
gold standard, and assure for themselves
and the whole nation a most liappv and
prosperous future. Seeing this, and how
all just interests concur in the work. I ask
| the officers and soldiers who fought for the
Union, as every thinking man of the great
West and North asks, why it cannot be
We are told by those who have con
trolled the Government for the past four
years, that the people of the South will
not do it. That if ever done at all. it
must be done by the poor, simple, nncdu
cated, landless freedmen, and the few
whites who. against the public opinion and
sentiment of the intelligent, white people
i are willing to attempt to lead, aud make
' their living off of these ignorant and in
| experienced colored people, mostly men
who mint be needy adventurer*, or with
out any of those attributes on which reli
ance tor good guidance or government can
be placed, We are told that this kind of
government must be continued at the
South until six or eight millions of intelli
gent, energetic white people give n to it
or move out of the country. Now I think,
the Union army thinks, and people ot the
North and West, I daresay, believe, there
must be, or there ought to be, a shorter,
a surer way to get good government for all
at the South. v\ c know that they who
organized and sustained the Southern
Confederacy four years agaiust gigantic ef
forts, ought be able to give peace, law, or
der and protection to the whole people of
the South. They have the interest and
power to employ, protect, educate and ele
vate the poor freedmen, and restore them
selves and our country to all the blessings
of which 1 havejnst spoken. The ques
tion we want answered is— 44 Arc they
willing to do it ? '
I came down to find out what the peo
ple of the South think of this, Hrid to ask
you what the officers and soldiers who
served in the Confederate army, and the
leading people who sustained it, think of
I came to ask more. I want to ask you,
in whose purity and patriotism I here ex
press unqualified confidence, and as many
good men as you can conveniently con
sult, to say what you think of it, and also
what you are willing to do about it. I
want a written expression of views that
can he followed by a concurrence of ac
tion, I want to know if you, and the gen
tlemen who w ill join in tne written ex
pression, are willing to pledge the people
of the South to a ciuvalrou* and magnani
mous devotion to restoring peace and pros
perity to our common country. I want to
carry that pledge high above the level of
party polities, to the late officers and sol
dier* of the Union army and the people of
the North and West, and to ask them to
consider it and to take the necessary ac
tion, confident that it w ill meet with a re
sponse so warm, so generous and confiding
that wc shall see in its sun-bine the rain
bow of peace in our political sky, now
black with clouds and impending storm,
I know you are a representative man ;
in reverence and regard for the Union,
the C onstitution and the welfare of the
country, and that what you would say
would be indorsed by nine tenths of tin
whole people of the South ; but I should
like to have the signature of all the repre
sentative .Southern men here, who concur
in your views, and expressions of their
concurrence from the principal officers and
representative men throughout the South,
when they can he procured. This concur
rence of opinions and wills, all tending to
peace, older and stability, w ill assure our
Union so diers and business men, who
want substantial and solid peace, ail I cause
them to arise above the level of parlv
politics and take such steps to meet yours
as will insure a lasting peace, with all its
countless blessings. Very truly your

General H. E. Lee, White Sulphur Springs
W iiirE SULPHUR SPRINGS, WEST )
VA., August 26, 186 S.
GENERAL : 1 have had the honor to re
ceive y our letter of this date, and in ac
cordance with your suggestion 1 have con
ferred with a number of gentlemen from
the South, in whose judgment I have con
tided, and who are well acquainted with
the public sentiment of their respective
States. They have kindly consented to
unite with ine in replying to your commu
nication, and their names will be found
with my own appended to this answer.
With this explanation we proceed to
give to vou a candid statement of what
we believe to be the sentiment of the
Southern people in regard to the subject
to which you refer.
Whatever opinions have prevailed in
the past in regard to African slavery; or
the right ot a State to secede from the
I'nion, we believe we express the almost
unanimous judgment of the Southern
people when we declare that they consid
er that those questions were decided bv
the war, and,tliat it is their intention in
good faith to abide by that decision. At
the close of the war the Southern people
laid down their arms, and sought to re
sume their former relations with the
United States Government. Through their
State Conventions they abolished slavery
and annulled their ordnances of secession ;
and thev returned to their peaceful pur
suits with a sincere purpose to fulfil all
their duties under the Constitution of the
United States, which they had sworn to
suppoit. If their action in these particu
lars had been met in a spirit of frankness
and cordiality, we believe that ere this
old irritations would have passed away,
and the wounds inflicted by the war wou d
have been in a great measure healed.
As far as wc are advised, the people of
the South entertain no unfriendly feeling
toward the Government of the United
States, but they complain that their rights
under the Constitution are withheld from
them in the administration thereof.
The idea that the Southern people are
hostile to the negroes, and would oppress
them if it were in their power to do so, is
entirely unfounded. They have grown
up in our midst, and we have been accus
tomed from childhood to look upon them
with kindness. The change in the rela
tions of the two races has wrought no
change in our feelings toward them
They still constitute the important part of
our laboring population. Without their
labor, the lands of the South would be
'•omparatirely unproductive. Without
the emplo\ment which Southern agricul
ture a fluids, they would be destitute of the
means ot subsistence, and become paupers,
dependent on public bounty.
Self respect, even if there were no high
er motives, would therefore prompt the
whites of the South to extend to the ne
groes care and protection. Ihe impor
tant fact that the two races are, under ex
i-ting circumstances, necessary to each
other, is gradually becoming apparent to
both ; and we believe that but for influ -
enccs exerted to stir up the passions of the
negroes, the relations of the two races
would soon adjust themselves on a basis of
mutual kindness and advantage.
It is true that the people of the South
together with the people of the North and
West, are for obvious reasons opposed to
any system of laws which would place the
political power of the country in the
hands of the negro race. l>ut this opposi
tion springs from no feeling of enmity, but
from a deep seated conviction that at pres
ent the negroes have neither the intelli
gence or other qualifications which are
necessary to make them safe depositories
of political power. They would inevita
bly become the victims of demagogues,
who for selfish purposes would mislead
them to the serious injury of the public.
The great want of ihe South is peace.
The people earnestly desire tianquility
and the restoration of the Union. They
depreciate disorder and excitement as the
most serious obstacle to their prosperity.
They ask a restoration ot theii rights
under the Coustitntiqn. They desire re
lief from oppressive misrule. Above all,
tlicy would appeal to their countrymen for
the re-establishment in the Southern
States of that which has justly been re
garded as the birth-right of every Ameri
can—the right of self-government- Es
lahli-h these on a fiim basis, and we can
safely promise, on behalf of the Southern
people, that thev will faithfully obey the
Constitution and laws of the United States,
treat the negro with kindness, and buinaui
ty, and fulfil every duty incumbent on
peaceful citizens, loyal to the Constitution
of their country.
We believe the above contains a suc
cinct replv to the general topics embraced
in your letter, and we venture to say, or.
behalf of the Southern people, and of the
officers and soldiers of the late Confederate
HI my, that they will concur in all the sen
timents which we have expressed.
Appreciating the patriotic motives which
have prompted your letter, and reciproca
ting your expressions of kind regard, we
have the ho ior to be,

THE OATH-BOUND. SECRET AND
REVOLUTIONARY G. A. R. EX
Horrible Oath of the Supreme Degree!
We give below an exposition of the I
character of the Radical military secret so ■
ciety. which has been organized for the j
purpose of overthrowing the liberties of the
people. The attention of the Govern— i
ment has lecently been called to the trea
sonable character of the organization known
as the "Grand Army of th; Republic," and J
the ritual, oath, Ac., have been discovered
and are now in the possession of the detec
tives. The oath of the Supreme Com- j
mandery, which we print b low, is of a
most hurt id and revolting character, and j
should op n the eyes of all men who still j
cling to the Constitution and a Republican
form of Government. Concerning the
character of the lower degrees, we are fur- •
nisht d the following:
"The "Cost" is the initiatory degree in
this order, and here the rite ot initiation j
is very simple. In order to delude those j
wiio have been in the service of the United j
States into joining them, the statement is j
made that the G A. R. is not of a political
character and that its object is only to pro
mote the interest of those who were in the
annv. Rut upon initiation the novice is
obligated to vole for a soldier as against a
civilian, unless otherwise instructed hv the
order, which means that in case a Radical
civilian is a candidate for office against a
Democratic soldier, the order will instruct
members to vote for the civilian. Thus
the " I'ost" is used as a political machine,
and as ibis under the control of the Su
preme Commandery, this subordinate i
branch is subject to military duty under
the orders of tbe upreme Commander. —
This, however, is studiously concealed from |
the knowledge of the members of the "l'ost,' '
and so are many other things which are j
deemed safe only in the breasts of the |
members of the higher degrees. Only
those who have risen to the grade of
"Rrigadier Generals" in the order, can
take the highest degree, and only on taking
the following oath:
" 1, , in the presence of Al
mighty God and upon his Holy Evangely, !
do solemnly swear that I will bear true al |
legiance to the American Nation, that 1 i
will leeognize all men wi'bout distinction j
ot race or color as my political equals, and
that I will oppose and stand ready, at all
hazards to a>Mst in abrogating, or if need
, be, in overturning, all laws, under what
euer name, not in harmony with this doc
tiine of equality; and I furthermore swear
that 1 will, at all times and under all cir- ,
j eumstances, favor the concentration of pow
er in the Federal Government and oppose
1 the idea of reserved rights rosining in the
| States, or in the people; and I furthermore
swear that 1 will resist, to the extent of my
I power, even if it should require the sac
rifice of my life itself, the continuance of
the State R ghts theory in the policy of the
Government of the United States; and in
I token cf my sincerity, I hereby announce 1
my willingness to submit to the extreme j
penalty, even death, which this order may I
choose to inflict upon me, if at any time I i
should prove unfaithful to this, my oath of
loyalty. So help me God and keep me
Thus are the revolutionary and treason
able purposes of this oath bound conspir-
I acy unveiled It can scarcely be possible
that any soldier, who fought for the pres
i eivation of the Constitution, which this or
! der seeks to subvert, will continue in fel
lowship with it, after learning its atrocious
! designs. We call upon all who are mem
! bers of the inferior degrees, those who have
united themselves with various " l'ost"
throughout the country, whether they are
Republicans or Democrats, to at once dis
engage themselves from the snaro iuto
which they have been led. Come out !
Leave this revolting and revolutionary
cabal, and dbdaui to be the tools of the con
spir.itors who seek to make you their in
| strumeuts iu overthrowing your own, as
1 well as the public liberty.— Exchange.
The Power of Music.
The following from the N. Y. Journal
of Music will be read with interest by the
many friends and acquaintances of Trof.
T. E. Perkins, in this vicinity :
u One evening sometime since, as Mr.
Theodore E. Perkins was sitting in the
room of the Howard Mission, New York,
conversing with the liev. Van Meter, they
were interrupted by a wild looking man,
who exclaimed :
1 M ls Awful Gardener here ?"'
"No," replied Mr. Van Meter,
M Then," exclaimed the man in accents
of despair, lam lost. If Awful Gardener
was here he could save me. He'd know
how becuse lie's been the same road; but
now I'm lost !" ar.d drawing a bowie knife
from under his vest, he was about to
plunge it into his bosom, when Mr, an
Meter sprang forward and caught his aim.
Seeing.that it would be useless to attempt
to wrest the knife from his grasp, Mr. Van
Meter sought to distract the man's atten
tion from bis suicidal purpose; but the un
fortunate crest ure was seized with a fit of
delirium tremeus and became unmanage
Mr. Perkins, not knowing what eles to
do sat down to the melodeon and began to
play and si'igi nme ye disconsolate.
The effect was magical. The man was
sufficiently calm for Mr. \an Meter to
march hiin up and down the room, while
Mr. Perkins continued to play and sing
From "Gome ye disconsolate," be struck
into "Jesus, to Thy dear arms I flee." The
effect was stili marked. After singing that
beautiful hymn, Mr. Peikins commenced
"Flee as a bird to your mountain." As
the strain of ibis exquisite composition filled
the room, the maniac paused, sat down,
covered bis face with bis hands, and sob -
bed like a child—or rather like a broken
hearted, remorseful man. By this time,
Mrs. Van Meter, who was present when the
man first hurst into the room, came in with
a bowl of strong Cofl'ee which she had
thoughtfully made, and as soon as the
weeping stranger b- came sufficiently com
posed, she gave it to him. That quieted
liis nerves and renewed bis strengh, and in
a little while he became completely re
stored to the possession of bis faculties.
"Who is this man ?' was the question
which rose spontaneously to the lips of his
deliverers. All tfforls to Ascertain who he
was proved fruitless, lie presistently re
fused to give bis name, or to furnish any
clue to his residence or iudentity. Mr.
Perkins accompanied him to the St. Nich
olas hotel, were lie took a room under an
assumed name. But in bis conversation be
had chanced to mention a clergyman living
in Newport R. 1., whom Mr. Van Meter
knew. The latter immediately wrote to
the clergyman, stating the cae, and ask
ing him to come to llie city. The clergy
man came bv the first boat, and was taken
at once to the hotel, where th-y fortunate
ly found the poor man. The clergyman
