WASHINGTON, Sept. 25,1865.
The Condition of the Freedmen in Mis
The freedmen's bureau is in receipt of an
important report from Col. SAMUEL THOMAS,
assistant commissioner of freedmen's affairs
for the States of Louisiana and Mississippi.
Upon the report is founded the property re
turns for the month of August. This report
is not entirely complete, owing to the fact that
part of the records of the State of Missis
sippi have been destroyed, and the citizens
seem adverse to telling tile truth about
any of the property held by the bureau.
This report shows that the plantations leased
in Louisiana were 115, in 'Mississippi 136—in
Louisiana 57 and in Mississippi US by whitest
in Louisiana 58 and in Mississippi 23 by blacks
—total 502. Nine thousand acres of land were
leased to blacks in Mississippi ; four thousand
five hundred acres of land were leased to blacks
in Louisiana ; thirteen thousand lirehundred
acres of land, in eighty-one plantations, were
leased to blacks. Thirty-one thousand acres
of land were leased to whites in Mississippi.
Twenty-one thousand five hundred acres of
land in one hundred and seventy plantations
were leasedto whites. Total, efty-two thousand
five hundred. Thirteen thousand five hundred
acres of land were leased to blacks. Total,
sixty-six thousand acres leased. About one
helf the lands leased to white lessees were
abandoned, owing to the Overflow of the
Mississippi. It should be remembered that
this amount of land is that which was
turned over by the leasing agent of the
Treasury Department, together with the
land being cultivated by the freedmen,
under the charge,of the bureau. Nearly all of
this land belongs to citizens who will receive
it back in January, 1866, under the provisions
of eireular fifteen, A tremendous pressure is
being brought to bear by returning citizens, of
all classes, to get possession of their property.
They are constantly writing letters to the Pre
sident, and the heads of different bureaus at
Washington, filled with all kinds of misrepre;
sentations, in order to effect their pur
poses. It is becoming very unpopular with the
army, and even with loyal citizens, to hold
property of any kind belonging to the citizens
of this State. I heartily Wish that it was all
turned over, or the policy of the Government
more clearly defined. No property has been
libelled for confiscation. I have made no at
tempt to distribute lands in small lots to the
negroes, as I know it will meet with strong
opposition from all parties. It will require a
hero to execute it, and a military force to pro
tect the freedmen daring the term of their lease
The planters are all oppesed to it, as it will
derange the laboring system for wages on the
plantations. The organization for the State is
becoming more complete every clay, and, as a
natural consequence, the business of the gene
ral office is more satisfactory. Fifty-seven
officers are in various ways connected with
the bureau, and all are now on duty. These
officers are distributed over the State, that the
freedmen may be protected and , the planters
informed of their duty. The returns of rations
are not complete, but are as nearly so as we
can get them for this report. The number of
freedmen, 4,278 is about correct ; 600 of these
will pay for what they receive, leaving 3,678
of the destitute and of those working for the
Government. But the number of refugees re
ported is far below the true number fed. Al.
though only 407 of them are receiving rations,
the number is probably not far below 2,000,
making a total of more than 6,000 people fed.
The report shows over 102,000 rations drawn
and issued, which is merely a calculation for
thirty-One days of the number of people re.
The reports of the chief commissary of the
State only shoWabout eighty thousand rations
for the month of August. The organization of
the militia has created a greater panic among
the freedmen than any action of the Federal
or late Confederate authorities. It will do
more to disturb the relation of the freedmen
to the whites of the State than anything which
has yet been done. If the militia is organized as
foreshadowed by the Governor's proclamation
. and endorsed by the President of the United
States, in his despatch to the Governor, I
have no idea that the freedmen will remain
quiet laborers in the cotton-fields. They are
excited and partially aroused. They have
some idea of what war is. They certainly
know all about slavery, and have no idea of
returning to any such condition. That collis
ions will occur, that a disturbed state of soci
ety will be the result, there is no questioth
The hope of organizing the labor of the State
in such a way that the freedmen will return
to the fields and assist in recruiting the
agricultural wealth of the State, as foe la
borers, seems to vanish with the promulgation
of this militia order. When the white people
arc properly armed, and the Federal troops
withdrawn, the freedmen can be forced to
work on the plantations, but not as free labor
ers. The members of the late State Conven
tion have visited me, and are anxious to have
me prepare for them some kind of system
for adoption at the meeting of the Legis
lature, by which they can take complete
charge of freedmen affairs, and do away with
the necessity for United States officers. They
desire to place the labor system of the State
in the hands of their own constituency. I hear
of but little trouble between freedmen and
their employers. Nearly all the colored peo
ple of the State working on plantations have
been contracted with and employed, and are
anxious to make contracts for the year HA
for fear labor will be hard to get at the begin
ning of the season.
The Freedmen's Bureau.
It has been repeatedly stated, in the sena&
tion papers, that the Government is about to
close up, the Freedmen's Bureau, under Gen.
Ho - warm, which is a mistake so gross that it is
Marvellous how even the fruitful brains of
these inventors of news Could have fabricated
it. It is true that incessant efforts have
been made on the part of the old slave
holders to force precisely inch action, Vitt
not only is the President opposed to it, but
there is a mandatory law of Congress stand
ing !directly in the way, providing for such an
organization as now exists, Some modifica
tions have already taken place at the solicita
tion of the provisional governors ; and the
operation is now not only satisfactory to them,
but really useful to those who, without such B.
system, as that of General HOWARD'S, would
be unable to induce the colored people to
work for them at all. Regarded from this
point of view, the Freedmen's Bureau is bene
ficial to the ela,sses that complain of it. It IS
the intermediate channel by which to pre
serve the rights of these people and to secure
to the owners of plantations industrious, re
liable and well-paid labor.
Freedmen's Affairs in Georgia.
A report has also been received from Dr. .1.
V. DE KUNZ, chief medical officer of the bu
reau in Georgia. FroM it I understand that
the freedmen in Augusta are self•sustaining.
They not only support themselves, but, In iZd

The Freedmen in North Carolina.
The Freedmen's Bureau has received an
official report from Hr. "LOGAN, Surgeon ,
in-Chief of the Freecithen's Bureau in North
Carolina, He had personally visited and in
spected the camps, barracks, hospitals, &c., at
Beaufort, New Bern, and Roanoke Island. Thera
arc two settlements near Newborn. "Trent
Settlement" contains about 5,000 freedmen; is
pretty well located across the Trent river
from Newbern 5 is built as atom], with streets,
&c. There arc only about 1,100 receiving Go
vernment rations here. Johnsville, the other
settlement, is also located near Newborn, and
contains about 2,500 inhabitants about 1,000
receiving rations. On Roanoke Islaati there
are about 8,5005 2,200 of whom receive rations,
1,500 of those receiving rations being under
fourteen years of age. Near Beaufort there
are two mail settlements,namcd respectively
New Town and Hammacks, containing from
three to five hundred persons.

The Alabama Convention.
A telegram from Montgomery, Alabama, de
nies indignantly the statement in the North
ern papers, that the . convention now in ses
sion there had decided, by fifty-eight to eigh
teen, not to repudiate the rebel State debt.
The ordinance abolishing slavery in the State,
passed in the convention with but three oppos
ing rotes. The ordinance of secession was de
elarkd null and void. All looks well. This
despatch is signed by JOHN C. Knarna, of
Philadelphia, .110 W in Montgomery.
It must not be forgotten that LOUTS NAPO
LEON has explicitly stated that it was not his
intention to maintain his foothold in Mexico.
Els whole object was to secure good govern
ment for the people, under the rule of Mixt-
MILIAN, and then to retire decently and in
good order, leaving to that Prince the
care of the experiment he has Commenced.
It is claimed that the French have com
pletely mastered the Juktisz party, and that
under the policy of MAXIMILIAN, the native
tribes—which are seven out of the eight mil
lions and a bait of population in Mexico—will
be elevated and represented—that so far as
possible there will be no attempt to interfere
with their rights. A plan has been adopted
by which the old federated system is to be
changed, and a close imitation of the French
government substituted. Thus, instead of a
kind of parody on the American Union, what is
called the Republic will be divided into prefec
tures or nuallerlsections, each of which iS to be
under the control of a governor who is to be
subordinate in all things to the Emperor him
self. Under the old plan, which took its rise
vast districts were Committed to the
control of single individuals, each of whom, as
soon as he became a chief, began to threaten
whoever might be President for the time being,
and generally got to war with his rival neigh
bor. In this way the whole country hare been
kept in continual and bloody confusion for
nearly forty years, The French claim that if
MAXIMILIAN succeeds in creating and con
ducting the Government in Mexico, it will in
trke to the eubstantial prosperity of the United
States, but that if he should be driven oat, the
so-called Republic will be a constant thorn in
our side. If we attempt to goVern it in our
time, it would undoubtedly prove to be a very

Interned Revenue DeeisiOn.
The Commissioner of Internal Revenue re•

Mr. E. J. Lownun, President of the Distillers'

taxation of an article distilled from beer, on
which the tax of one dollar per barrel has been
paid. It is claimed that this article thus pro
duced is exempt from taxation under the law,
which provided that alcohol made from mate
rials on which a tax has been paid shall be ex
empt from taxation.
The Commissioner, in reply to Mr. LOWLIER,
"The dealers in thisjartiele have risk and
trouble enough at best, and we must make the
most we can of the present law, hoping that

Old men were tied up in their own yards, to

Young men were hunted down like wild
beasts, and shot down wherever found Old
women and young girls were tied up at home
and whipped, to force them to tell the con

were ! Union families were robbed of all they
had to live on ! Union mdthers and children
were driven out of their houses, and they and
their contents burned to the ground, because
their husbands and sons had crossed Cumber
land Mountains into Kentucky, and gone into
the Lincoln army! All this could have been
prevented by Governor Harris and the leadino
rebels of Fast Tennessee, but they were noT,
then satisfied there was any wrong in all this,
or they were not in loVe with law and order.
Meanwhile, written notices were served on

prominent Union men, who had been run out
of the country, were ordered to pack up and
go North in a given time—say thirty-six
hours—and when started their effects seized
upon and appropriated! All this Could have
been prevented by the leading rebels of East

hung—and coolly informed by a rebel officer
that they should be pardoned if they would

Pltinfopolleg In Ancient Pittsburg—How
they were VieWtd and how Treated.
The following from the Pittsburg Commercial
is of interest. It may, perhaps, give an idea
to some of our citizens:
As long eV as 1779 there were gTeat oom
plaints, - in Pittsburg, of the high prices de-
Jimmied for the means of living. The causes
were then partly the same as now operate to
Produce the same effect. But there were
special difficulties then which do not now
exist. The supply hf moat and dour WAS
limited in a frontier country, and that ha
rassed at the time by a powerful and active foe.
The principal articles of subsistence were
brought on pack horses from the east side of
the Allegheny mountains. This, of course, was
expensive. But the main reason of bighPriees
was the rapacity of the traders, who having the
control of the markets, limited their demands
only by the suggestions of their covetousness.
The officers of the army took the matter in
hand. They put the ease in its true light. They
did not charge the high Woos wholly upon the
depreciation of the currency, but they held
that the depreciation was aggravated and in
creased by the conduct of the traders monopo
lizing the commodities, and then alleging the
depreciation of the currency as a reason for
high prices. Looking upon. it in this light,
they denounced the traders not so much for
their individual rapacity as for their hostile
influence on the struggling country, by re
ducing the money issued in this emergency,
for carrying on the war of Independence, be
low its :proper value,
This is manifestly the tendenag A.t the pre'
sent time. The blame is laid upon the cur
rency. The charge implies insecurity to the
holders of the Government money, and a
want of confidence in its ultimate redemp
tion. But no such want of confidence exists,
and no occasion for it exists. The perpetual
and practical assertion of it in the de
mand of exorbitant prices, and the con
tinued compliance with the demand, may
however, breed a want of confidence, andi in
traduce the multiplied and ruinous conse
quences of such a state of things, We do not
attach such a motive to those who keep up the
demand for the recognition of depreciation in
Government securities, and with them, of the
issues of national banks, but such is the ten
dency of their action. The remedy adopted
by the patriotic officers and soldiers of the
army, in Pittsburg, was to stop the trading of
those whom they denominated "monopo
lizers, forestaller, engrossers or speculators."
This they did partly by agreement among
themselves not to buy of them, and partly by
force preventing them, as public enemies to
the cause of the country, from selling. Some
remedy seems to be required for the present
evil. Combinations of patriotic citizens, both
for their own protection and for the protec
tion of the currency, might counteract mis
chievous combinations against them,
The Copperhead the Infidel Party of
We have frequently heretofore insisted that
the natural tendency of modern Democracy,
or Copperlicadism, was to infidelity. The
leading men of the Copperhead organization,
by their defence of slavery and sympathy with
trep.son against freedom, have aced them
selves on the Wawa as the groatautugouists
of civilization, All over the world the Cop
perheads and slaveholders are regarded as the
opponents of the civilized progress of man
kind. It now becomes our duty to show from
the record that the Copperhead leaders are in
fidels ; that they are opposed to prayer, and
that they refused, in their official capacity, to
recognize the clergy of the State as being fit
to mingle their, prayers with the business of

Eight million six hundred acres of coal
lields,which make Ali extensive Snrrollttiling
near Pittsburg, rate at an average depth OT
eight feet, and are estimated to contain
53,516,430,000 tons of coal, which, at two dollars
per ton, would be worth $107032,800,000 or four
thousand millions of national debt paid
twenty-seven times, or a thollSand years'
gold and silver product of California and Ne
vada, supposing their yield to be one hundred
millions every year. This is plausibly quoted
as a fact in itself of great encouragement.
Add to the sum given, gold, silver, iron, cop
per, lead, petroleum, ite.; by the Saille. pro.
cess of eduction, and it would be vain to
calculate the result. In the same way our
grain resources or manufactures would out
value, in the long run, the largest product of
gold or silver, These are our resources, but
they are still only resources Proportionably
as they were a hundred years ago. What is
done (comprehending what is invented) is our
grand wealth ; so that our first desideratum is
labor, and not the coal mines. It is this we
need to make what we have apparent, WO
may work our mines, and pay our debt in the
same way—by a wise economy of finance tend
ing to make bread and butter cheap,and to in
vite population. It would be the height of
absurdity to lay back on our dumb resources.
Our business is to work all our Mines and pay
all our debts as soon as possible, Out great
mine is human labor.
A serreapondent writing Iron Mobile says:
While on my way to supper last evening,
I walked up the street with an old gentleman
who is engaged in the type-setting business,
or in foremanizin i f others who are, and lie
told me that he lia Just returned from a visit
to one of the cente.terlail of the city, I went
out there a great many years ago," said he,
"to help bury a printer, and I remember that
his grave was but the tenth one there. Now,
instead Of ten, I find there at ;east ten thou
sand ; and when I looked abroad this evening
over that little wilderness of green hillocks,
and thought of the many tears and breaking
hearts that have been since I stood there at
the bitrial of that poor printer long years ago,
it made me feel badly, and I was tempted to
say I wouldn't swear any more."
I replied that the thought was rather a sol
emn one, and that if it should cause hint to
break himself of the habit of swearing,
his visit to the ceme tery would turn out to
have been the best nundaY evening's work he
had ever done.
All," said he, "you never acted as foreman
in a newspaper °ince, or you would know that
a eight of all the grave-yards in creation Could
not broalc me of that habit. Why, sir," he
continued, " if there had been a printing Offloo
in Heaven and Lucifer bad been the foreman
of it, be —if he hadn't fallen a thousand
years before he did I"

ildential relations with Latle, confessed to hint
that he had " $.5,000 of bonds which the
York boys had made," but subsequently
caused the arrest of Love. A package left 'by
