HANCOCK IN LOUISIANA.
It is well understood that Gen. Han
cock's strength' in the south is due to a
certain official, order No. 40, issued by
him as the commander of the fifth mil-
tary district, Louisiana and Texa?. We
had made, up our mind not to draw the
matter into di.-:cussi'ou unless compelled
to by the iudiscretion of his huppoitcrs.
While we iire conscioua that General
Hancock will ho compelled to stund
very severe criticism during the can
v.is.irand lake many hard' knocks, on
account ,of the position ni wliich ha
has allowed himself toYbe placed, we
personally feel kindly, toward him, and
are disposf d to permit him to get out
of an unpleasant position with as little
loss of respect fiom his friends as may
be. ; ; ' j
We will ttate, 'howe-vcr'lh': f.k-u :w
