GENERALORDEft, No. Il.—The three
States. of Georgia, Florida, aid South
Carolinas, comprising the Military Depart
metit of the South, having delillerately de
clared themselves no longer under the pro
tection of the United States of America,
and having taken up arms against the said
United States, it became a military neces
sity to declare them under martial - law.
Thi!, was accordingly done on the 2.5t4 day
of April, 1562.
Slavery and martial law in a free court,
:IT are altogether incompatible. The per
sons in these three States, Georgia, Flori-',
Xla, and South Carolina, heretofore, held as
, laves, arc therefore declared forever free.

The President and Gen. Hater.
No one can be surprised by the Un-
nouneement that Gen. Hunter's military
order, emancipating, all tlic;slaves in South 1
Carolina, Georgia and Florida, on 'the ab
surd pretext that "martial la* and Slave
ry are incompatible ,in .it free country," is
repudiated by President Lincoln. Gen.
Hunter will be largely' indebted to <the
President's forbearance ;,if he is not re
called. His order involved a ver;it gross
t rdepart tire froth his official duty, was utter
ly unjustifiable in itself, and was calcula
ted very greatly to embarrass the Gener
al Government in its great ;task of deiling
with the rebellion.
From the vOy begitininr , of this rebel
lion, President Lincoln has been perfectly l
clear and decided on the subject of slave.:l
He has refused to make this war one
-of emancipation, and has steadily treated
it as designed to restore the integrity of
the Union, and the supremacy - of the eon
stitmion. He has not vielded one iota to;
tierce : and relentless pressure bro't
to ben. 4onhim in ;favor, of a sweeping
aholitionpoliey." --- Re_ required Gen. -Fre
t mont'to modify his prrietann ion of free
j dom to the slaves of rebels, so as on
form strictly to the law of Comrress.
I It is urged in defence of the General's
I act that the yellori- fever season is ap , ;
proaehing, and that he needs acclimated
•negroes to work upon his fortifications.
giveg no such reason for his decree.
lle baseS his action on no such ground.
Besides. the yellow fever is not to be a- 4 ,
verted by a military order, nor canlabor
ers be commanded by such a process. Hi
he needs slaves for' work, let hiPit seize
thenvfor Militnrv . purposes; his poWers
are ample for so . doing. But proclaiming
their freedom neither swells the number
of his workmen, nor gives him comfnand
of their labor. So far as practical results
rare concerned, it is brutent - fiilm'erx. If it
t i takes effect and actually frees thy shiv 6, it
plunges those States into an abyss a blood
and terror which might glut: the most
~ 111 -wolfish hatred, but, which could not-,con
tribute in Mc least toward the peace and
iunion which the war professes' to seek.—
