His Letter About Those Flags.
AVawunuto.v, I). C, June Kith, lsar,.
Tu tin; I'rtsiihnt : Tim local news
papers of this morning con linn what has
heeri mere rumor for tin; lust few dayH,
and give copies of a circular address to
to the governors of ntato by the Adjutant
(Jeneral of the U. H. A., in which it is
stated that you approve the recommen-
dutionCpifcHiiinaMy made by the fiecretary
of war) that all flags in custody of the
the war department he returned to the
authorities of the respective states in
Which the regiments which bore them
were organized. The circular thereupon
makes tender of the ll igs and closes with
tliis language; "In discharging this
pleasant duty I beg you ill please ad vise
me of your wishes in this matter. It is
tho intention in returning each Hag to
give its history so far as it is possible to
do so, stating the circumstances of its
capture and recovery." "While the word
ing of this communication is somewhat
ambiguous, the evident intention is that
the battle Hags of confederate regiments,
captured by the union forces during the
war of the rebellion, shall be returned to
tho authorities of the states lately in re
bellion. To such action on the part of
any of the executive oflicers of the gov
ernment I enter my respectful and most
earnest protest, and request that you re
consider your recommendation and take
no further steps until there can be such
congressional action as the representatives
of the people may desire. I deny the le
gal right of the executive to mnke such
disposition of these trophies, the proper
ty of the United States by the highest na
ture of ownership and which it is the sa
cred duty of the war department to safely
guard. Their gift at this time, by way
ot apologetic surrender, to the states that
seceded in 1801, and that for four years
were in armed rebellion against the gov
ernment waging war with every energy
and resorco possessed by them, is beyond
your executive power. These rebellion
states were the enemies of the United
fitatcs. Having seceded from the union
and being thus engaged they were as to
all property rights the same in their re
lation to the United States, with which
power they were at war, as any other be
ligercnt. Vattal has laid down the
rule that when a country is divided by a
civil war, each faction is deemed an in
dependent nationality, so far as the rules
of warfare are conccrned(Vattel Dist de
Gens, Liv. 2 chapter G, I Ialleck's Interna
tional Law, page 73). Tho property of
the belligerent, of whatsoever description,
is subject to seizure and use. The neces--ity
of self-preservation and the right to
punish an enemy and to deprive him of
the means of injuring us by converting
his property to our own use lie at the
foundation of the rule and constitute the
the right of the belligerent to the enemy's
property of any kind (Ilalleck's Interna
tional law, page 44$).
In the case of individuals, as to prop
erty not taken upon the field of battle,
proceedings of condemnation must be
had; but as to the state in rebellion Ilal
leck states the law most clearly upon page
431 of his work:
"AH moveable property belonging to
the hostile state is subject to be seized
and appropriated to the use of the captor,
nnd the title to such moveable or person
al property is considered as lost to the
orriginal proprietor as soon as the captor
has acquired a firm possession, which, as
a general rule, is considered as taking
place after the lapse of twenty-four hours;
so that immediately after the expiration
of that time it may be alienated to neu
trals as indefeasible property."
The supreme court of the United States
has repeatedly recognized the doctrine
stated. In United States vs. Klein, 13
Wallace, page 130, it says:
"Property in the insurrectionary state
may be distributed in four classcss.
1. That which belonged to the hostile
organization or was employed in actual
hostilities on land.
2. That which at sea became lawful
subject of confiscation.
3. That which became the subject of
4. A peculiar description, known only
in the recent war, called captured or
The first of these descriptions of prop
erty, like property of other kinds, in or
dinary international war, becomes, when
ever taken, ipso facto the property of the
If this absolute title as owner vests in
such property as muuitions of war, pro
vision, and treasure, how sacred is the
ownership of the Nation in the stained
colors and torn flags that were the in
signia of the power of the enemy, the
symbols that excited emulation in heroic
achievement and were the rallying points
of the rebellious regimental organizations
that fought to destroy the Union. It will
haidly tc claimed that the munitions of
war, and treasure captured could be re
turned pleasure of the Executive; but
to the men who rejoice in the victory
won and the Nation saved, they are val
ueless compared with these battle-flag3,
many of which are stained by the prec
ious blood of the captors. There was no
title of ownership under the rules of war,
to much of the property takea from in
dividuals during the war. It was not
war material owned by the person or
taken from him upon the field of battle,
Yet, in every instance where huc.1i proper
ty has fallen into custody of the Kxtcu
live oflicers it has seemed to require an
act of Congress to restore it. A notable
instance is that of the jewels and adorn
mcnts of the person held for so many
years in th treasury vaults. They be
longed to the individuals claiming them,
not to the Government, yet no Secretary
of the treasury presumed to sureudcrr
them until Congress at its last session
passed the act authorizing it to be done.
But even if there were legal rights to
do this thing, I would still protest against
its doing. Those who fought for this
country have no feeling of bitterness or
ill will towards those who fought against
it. They have proven it in many ways.
The animosities engendered by the war
have almost passed away, and I protest
against action such as this, the tendency
of which is to revive them. There has
been no public demand from states.
associations, or individuals for the return
of these captured trophies. When it is
made will come the time for the consid
eration of the request. Tho extinction
of all sectional feeling is earnestly desir
ed by the soldiers of the Union. Action
such as this promotes it and keeps it
aliyo. If it be right to surrender these
captured colors because they serve to re
call the war, then should all old army
organizations be abandoned. The Grand
Army of tho Republic, the Militiary Or
der of the Loyal Legion, the Societies of
the Anilines of the. Potomac; the Tennes
see, and the Cumberland should cease to
exist. If it be right to give these sym
bols of rebellion into the hands of those
who once carried thm in hot hatred of
the Union, because they are unpleasant
reminders of the past, then should the
bronze statues of Thomas and McPher-
sou, Farragut and Dupont be melted that
they may be recast in less heroic mould?
No! Let not this surrender be made. The
men who fought for the Union, in the
language of General Grant, "are not yet
ready to apologize for the part they took
in the War of the Rebellion." With
everything forgiven and almost forgot
ten, let us at least try to remember that
those who fought for the Union were for
ever right, and those who fought to de
stroy it were eternally wrong.
Again I protest, and urge upon you
the reconsideration of this proposed
action which if done cannot be undone.
I do so as a citizen loving his country
and jealous of her honor; as a soldier
who took humble part in the days of
1801 1865; as a Senator of the United
States representing a constituency which
served in the batallious of every loyal
state of the Union, and as a member of
the Committee on Military Affairs duly
desirous that the War Department may
not so grievously blunder.
Very Respectfully yours,
Ciiarxes F. Mandekboit.

his available material for teachers, decid
ed to request one of the young gentlemen
of the congregation to take the class.
It so happened that the young man up
on whom fell the superintendent's choice,
was exceedingly bashful so much so, in
fact, that he insisted upon the superin
tendent going and presenting him to the
class. Accordingly the two gentlemen
appeared on the little platform and the
superintendent began: "Young ladies,
I wish to introduce to you Mr. C, who
will in the future be your teacher. I
would like to have you tell him what
your former teacher did, so that he can
go right on in the same way: "

with the sUrs and strips floating in the

Ono of tho stories of the sort which
formed the staple of subject for a school
of literature now pretty well gone out cf
fashion, is tokl concerning tho Quincy
house and Its Into proprietor, Mr. J. W.
Johnson. It is related by those sometime3
entertaining and anon prolix gossips
who know all the old stories which deul
with thoir neighbors, that once Mr. John
son, then a farmer up country, came to
Boston to sell a load of potatoes. Such
was his ill luck, however, or the dullness
of the market, that ot the close of his
marketing ho found himself without ready
money enough to pay his score at the
Quincy house, where he had taken a
room. There was talk of retaining tho
farmer's horse in pledge for his bill, but
Johnson, who was a powerful man, went
himself to the stables aud harnessed his
team, no man daring to interfere with
him except by word. The matter termi
nated for the tiino being in the regulation
manner of tho old comedies. The farmer
departed in a fino rage, pursued by the
taunts of tho employes of the house,
which he answered with a vow to own
the whole establishment before he died.
From that day his one ambition seemed
to be to fulfill his boast, nnd to this end
ho labored and saved until still in the
old fashioned comedy fashion events had
been shaped to hi4 will, and his pluck and
persistence were rewarded by the actual
possession of tho Quincy house, from
whose doors he had once been ignominl
