The following letter is. published this morning from the President to Gen. I-e: IMm-.nd, July 31, lii2. Sir On the 22d of this month the Cartel for a geucial exchange of pti-oiieii wn signed between Major Gencial I). II. Hill on the part f the Confederate Stiit.s, and Major General John A. Dix, in behalf of (he V'lite I States. That Caitcl stipulated that all prisoners of war h'Tciifier taken --hall be discharged on p .role (ill exc'liangcd. Scarcely hud that Cartel been signed when the authorities of the I'niled States commenced a practice changing the char acter of the war from such us becomes civilized nations, into a campaign of indiscriminate robbery and murder. The general order issued by the Secretary of War of the I 'nited States-in the City p! Washington, on the very day that the Cartel was signed in Virginia, directs the military commanders of the I'niled States to lake the private property of our people for convenience, and use tho same without any compensation. The general order issm-d bv M 'j.-Gen. l'ope on the 23d of July, the dav after (he signing of the Cartel, direct' the tnur- j der of our pe.icelul iiihnliilanW ii spies, i il found guilty of tilling! the farms in his rear, even outside ol his lines, and one of his I'rigadier Generals, S'eiuwehr, has seized upon innocent and peaceful inhabitants to be held as hostages to the end that they may be murdered in cold blood if any of his soldiers are killed by some unknown persons whom he designates as "bushw hackers.'.' Under this state of facts, this Government has issued the enclosed general order, recognizing Gen. l'ope nnd his commissioned ollicers to bo in tho position which they have chosen for themselves that of robbers nnd of murderers, and not that of public enemies, entitled, if captured, to be consigned ns prisoners of war. We find ourselves driven by our enemies, by steady pro'r.-sn, towards a practice which we abhor, and which we are vainly striving to avoid. Some of the military authorities of the United States seem to suppose that . better success will attend a savage war, in which no quarter is to be given, and no ages or sex to be spaied than has hitherto been secured by such hostilities as are recognized to be law ful by civilized men in modern times. For tho present we announce our right of retaliation for the innocent, and shall continue to treat private enlisted soldiors of Gen. Pope's army as prisoners of war; but after notice to the Government has been given at Washington of our confining repressive measures to punishment only of commissioned officers, who were willing to participate in (hose crimes nnd savage practices which are continued, we shall reluctantly be forced to the bust resrrt of ecccptinc the war on the terms chosen by our foes, until outrages of a common humanity force a respect for recognized rules of war. While these facts would justify our resolution to Ihe generous 'artel by which we havo consented to liberate an excess of thousands of prisoners held by us, beyond the number held by the enemy, a sacred regard to plighted faith, shrinking from the mere semblance oi brenlsitig 4i irouaut4,7 pi'Hveiiin our. resort to this extremity; nor d we desire to extend to any oilier forces of the enemy tho punishment merited alone by (icn. l'ope and such commissioned ollicers as choose to participate in the execution of his infamous orders. You are therefore Instructed to communicate to tho commander-in chief of the armies of tho United Stale, the contents of this letter, nnda copy of the inclosed geYiernl order, lo tho cml that he may be notified of our intentions not to consider any ollicers hereafter captured from Gen. lVqio's nnny us prisoners of war.
