Alarming cxcestes have recently been
committed by blacks in Bullock County, in

they have tramed a code of laws to govern
the negro population, opened a court, offi
cered and organized, and are arresting by
night all blacks who oppose their unlawful
proceedings, and have canied punnishment
so far that their victims have applied to the
civil authorities for protection. The black
sheriff and his deputy were finally arrested
but other insurrectionary leaders organized
tbe negroes and made armed resistance.—
Aid from other leagues was summoned,and
tbe blacks flocked to Union Springs,threat
ening a general rising and the extermina
tion of tbe whites, and taking possession of
the country. The black leaders went to
the plantations aud forced the laborers to
join them for vengeance, showing pretend
ed orders from Gen. Swayne that they had
a right to kill all resisting their authority.
During the excitement the negro church at
Perote Was burned by unknown parties it
is alleged by black leaguers, to inflame the
negroes. The whites universally regret it.
Tbe white citizens have organized for pro
tection. General Swaync was appealed to
and sent a detachment of troops promptly
to the scenes of trouble to restore order.
The black insurrectionists have been arrest
ed and sent to jail to be tried by the civil
authorities. At the last accounts, order
was restored, and all was quiet.

Message of President Johnson.
His Appreciation of Gen Hancock's Admin
istration of the Fifth Military District.
The President sent the following mes
sage to Congress last Wednesday:
GENTLEMEN or THE SENATE AND or THE
HOUSE or REPRESENTATIVES :
An official copy of the order issacd by
Major General Winfield S. Hancock, Com
mander of the Fifth Military District, dat
ed headquarters, New Orleans, on the 29th
day of November, has reached mc through
the regular channels of the War Depart
ment, and I herewith communicate it to
Congress for such action as may seem to
be proper in view of all the circumstances.
It will be perceived that General Hancock
announces that he will make the law the
rule of his conduct; that he will uphold
the courts and other civil authorities in the
performance of their proper duties, and
that he will use bis military power only to
preserve the peace and enforce the law.—
He declares veiy explicitly that the sacred
right of trial by jury and the privilege of
the writ of habeas corpus shall not be
crushed out or trodden under foot. He
goes further, and in one comprehensive
sentence asserts that the principles of
American liberty are still the inheritance
of this people, and ever should be.
\Y hen a great soldier, with unrestricted
power in his hands to oppress his fellow
men, voluntarily foregoes the chance of
gratifying his selfish ambition and devotes
himself to the duty of building up the lib
erties and strengthening the laws of his
country, he presents an example of the
highest public virtue that human nature is
capable of practising.
The strongest claim of Washington to
be " first in war, first in peace, and first in
the hearts of his countrymen," is founded
on the great fact that in all his illustrious
career he scrupulously abstained from vio
lating the legal and constitutional rights of
his fellow citizens. When he surrendered
bis commission to Congress the President
of that body spoke bis highest praise in
saying that he had " always regarded the
rights of the civil authorities, through all
dangers and disasters." Wherever power
above the law courted his acceptance he
calmly put temptation aside. By such
magnanimous acts of forbearance be won
the universal admiration of mankind, and
left a name which has no rival io the his
tory of the world.
I am far from saying that Gen. Hancock
is the only officer of the American Army
who is influenced by the example of Wash
ington. Doubtless thousands of them are
faithfully devoted to the principles for
which the men of the Revolution laid down
their lives. But the distinguished honor
belongs to him of being the first officer in
high command south of the Potomac since
the close of the civil war who has given
utterance to those noble sentiments in the
form of a military order.
I respectfully suggest to Congress that
some public recognition of Gen. Hancock's
patriotic order is due, if not to him, to the
friends of law and justice throughout the
V.VUIIII J. Vi OUVITUU UVI CEO 1113 at ouwu d
time it is but fitting that its dignity should
be vindicated and the virtue proclaimed,
so that its value as ao example may not
be lost to the nation.
Washington, D. C., Dec. 18, '67.
The Treasury report has been published.
In regard to the resumption of specie pay
ments, the Secretary says:—That desira
ble consummation has been delayed chiefly
by the poor crops of 1866, by the immense
expenditures of the War Department con
sequent upon the Southern military gov
ernments and the Indian hostilities and by
the shock to the public eredit given by the
expressions of such financiers as Ben. But
ler and Thnd. Stevens. Yet the Secreta
ry boldly declares that if the policy of con
traction is maintained, and the crops are
good next season specie payments may be
resumed by January, 1869, or, at the very
latest, six months later. The measures
requisite for this condition, are given as
First—The funding or paying the bal
ance of the interest bearing notes and the
continued contraction of the paper cur
Second —The maintenance of the public
faith in regard to the funded debt.
Third—Restoration of the Southern
States to their proper relations to the Fed
As to the National Banks, the Secretary
thinks that any attempt to destroy them at
the present time would bring on a crisis;
yet be hints that the time may come to
dispense with them. Conservative legis
lation, be declares, is now indispensable.
Notwithstanding the sigus of the times,
he insists even more strongly than usu
al on the poliey of rapid curreucy contrac
tion, and declares stubbornly that trade
has not been and will not be, injuriously
affected by such a policy. "An irredeem
able currency," it says •' is a financial dis
The Secretary then speaks briefly of tbe
internal laws—saying nothing of the great
whisky frauds —and recommends that only
slight changes be made in the tariff until
we have returned to specie payments. The
present tariff has failed to be protective, as
was intended, but bas produced a large
revenue, and in toat particular pleases the
He insists with much emphasis that the
understanding of the government which
issued our bonds and of the people who
bought them, was that they would be paid
in gold and he maintains that it would be
a disgraceful breach of national faith to pay
them in currency.'
Gen. Ord, eomipanding the Fifth
Military District, has issaed an order direc
ting General Gillem to proceed to Wash
ington and represent to the President and
Secretary of war the starving condition of
the Freedmcn in this district, and the
necessity of some provision being made by
the government to feed them and avert the
impending war of races. Gen, Ord also
orders that all freedmen who are able will
be requireed to earn their own support
during the coming year, and to go to work
on the heat terms that can be made, and
thus prevent their being a burden to the
government. Those who can, but will not
earn a livelihood, will lay themselves liable
to arrest and pnnishmcntas vagrants.
General Grant'■ Testimony.
General Grant's testimony before the Ju
diciary Committee is published. Tbe Gen
eral says be was frequently in consultation
witb Mr. Johnson in relation to tbe recon
struction measures ; and that be interceded
for Gen. Lee,and recommended the pardon
of Gens Longstreet, French and George H,
Stuait. On the subject of pardons, General
Grant expressed tbe opinion that so long
as the surrendered rebel soldiers kept their
parole and obeyed tbe laws, tbey were not
subject to trial by the courts. He disagreed
with the President when the Utter insisted
that the leaders must be punished, and told
Mr. Johnson that this could be done only
when they violated their parole. This did
not apply to Jefferson Davis or others who
were captured, only to those who were pa
roled. In regard to the Amnesty Procla
mation, Geo. Grant testified that he "could
not sec any reason why the fact ofa volun
teer rising to the rank ofa Gen. should ex
clude him any more than any other grades,
with reference to tbe 520.000 clause,
I thought that a man's success in tbe world
was no reason for bis being excluded from
amnestv, bnt I recollect afterwaid saying
| to the President that 1 thought he was right
in that particular and I was wroDg. I never
claimed that tbe parole gave these prisoners
any political right whatever, I thought that
i was a matter entirely with Congress, over
which I had no control • that, simply as
| General-in-Chief commanding the army, I
: had a right to stipulate for the surrender on
terms which protected, their lives. That
is all I claimed."
In regard to the North Carolina Procla
mation, General Grant said : "I was in favor
jof that or anything else which looked to
| civil government until Congress could meet
1 and establish government there; I did not
1 want all chaos left there and no form of civil
' government whatever; I was not in favor of
I anything or opposed to anything particular
ly ; I was simply in favor of having govern
; rnent there. • • • • *
"1 know that immediately after the close
I of the rebellion there was a very fine feeling
: manifested in the South, and I thought we
1 ought to take advantage of it as soon as
possible, but since that there has been an
evident change there."
In regard to the Presidents policy, Gen.
Grant said : "Mr. Lincoln, prior to his as
sassination had inaugurated a policy intend
ed to restore those governments. I was
; present once before his murder, when a plan
j was read. The plan adopted by Mr. John
son was substantially the plan which bad
i been inaugurated by Mr. Lincoln as the ba
sis for his future action. Ido not know
that it was verbatim the same. 1 think the
very paper which I heard read twico while
Mr. Lincoln was President was the one
vrtich was carried right through."
"Q. what paper was that ? A. The
North Carolina proclamation."
Since the publication of this testimony,
the Rads are not so enthusiastic tor his
nomination for the Presidency. It is doubt
ful now whether he will be their " chosen
j standard bearer."
