It appear* that mnUlaled repoita were printed In New Orleans at the earns tune 1 they were la the New York limit, and General Sheridan at once telegraphed General Grant that , one essential parjgrapu waa suppressed, and i asked If he could tell who waa entity of the breach ofmUlrary honor In giving tl such shape. Gen eral Grant at once responded that It did not cel into print from bla headquarters, and said if Gen eral Sheridan had no objections Ua would aik to have them published In lulL General Sheridan, the following day telegraphed that be did not for on Instant suppose the despatches wcre]thns published by Grant's authority, and be thought he bad a right to feel justly indignant at the per son who did give authority, lie had nothing to say, he condoned, os to the publication of hU other despatches. They were not written tor pub lication, but were at the service of bis superior officers. On the‘same day, viz: August 11th, Grant sent correct copies ol all the despatches to the Secretary of War, and asked their publication in fhll, and continued: ‘‘Already a garolcd ver sion of one of these despatches, and so In complete copy of another hive appeato! in the public prints. The publication puts General Sheridan In the posltUou of taking a par tJsan.vlcwof the whole question, and what Is still worse, of being one day on one side of the ques tion, acd another day on the other side.

He therefore submitted the papers for instructions to the Presi dent, who took the matter under advisement, di rected the collection of all the letters and Qr •inilcv-a relative to the riot and Convening that hud pamed between the civd and military authori ties at Washington and New Orleans, saying at the same tlau that they were to be examined with a\iuw to their publication in fall.
