TUESDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 27, ISG4.
The TELEGRAPH has been
Selected by the Secretary of the
United States as the medium
for the publication of the Public
Lath, Treaties, &c., promul
gated by the United States au
The amount of General Sherman's captures
at Savannah, in the shape of cotton, is valued
at THIRTEEN MILLION OF DOLLARS!
In addition to this, the immense captures of
railroad cars, locomotives, ammunition,
will amount to several millions more. This
is truly a valuable Christmas gift to the na
Glorious Illews-..Sherman's Christmas
Gen. Sherman presents (in the language of
the Ballimare American) to the loyal people of
the United States the city of Savannah as a
Christmas gift. To their social rejoicings to
day he adds the congratulations due to a great
and almost bloodless victory, that has re
turned to the national authority one of the
chief cities of the rebellious States. Generals
Sherman's and Foster's dispatches state that
the city was occupied by our forces on Wednes
day last. Gen. Sherman had made prepare
tions for an assault, and Gen. Hardee, fore
seeing his utter inability to hold the city, made
his escape the night previous, with the major
portion of his infantry and light artillery by
crossing the Savannah river opposite the city.
Before leaving he blew up the rebel iron
clads and burnt the navy yard. The fruits of
this grand capture, the crowning triumph of
Sherman's march through Georgia, as enu
merated by General Foster, are:—One hun
dred and fifty heavy guns, a large supply of
ammunition and matetials of war, eight hun
dred prisoners of war, three steamers, thir
teen locomotives, one hundred and ninety
cars, and thirty-three thousand bales of cot
ton. This is an enormous balance sheet
against the debit side of the rebellion to close
the year with. The loss in guns, materials
of war, and in locomotive stock is irrepara
ble, and joined With the mortification of
losing one of their principal cities,will deepen
to utter despondency the gloom already pre
vailing at Richmond.
Beyond the destruction of the' iron-clads
and navy yard, the city was uninjured. Over
twenty thousand citizens remained in it, and
by their quiet and orderly behavior gave evi
dence that the change of rulers was gracefully
if not willingly submitted to. The cotton
was found stored in warehouses. Its value at
present prices is not far from twelve inillions,
vbeinminseen — blinfehrirre;;. Foster's esti
mate is correct. Communication with - the
city had already been made with the fleet from
below by Gen. Foster. No particulars are
given of Gen. Hardee's movements beyond
the announcement of his escape from the
city. He no doubt foresaw that Gen. Sher
man would finally close up every avenue from
the city, and render the capture of his force cer
tain. Crossing the river near Savannah, he
probably moved inland, avoiding Gen. Foster's
forces on the Coosawatchie and made direct
for Charleston. General Sherman's future
movements may be easily divined. Charles
ton is too near and too coveted a prize to long
escape his grasp. Lying at the end of a pen
insula, between two rivers, General Sherman
has only to place his army in front of it to in
sure its surrender. We have no doubt when
the time comes it will be given up as quietly
as Savannah has been, and that the citizens
will emulate those of Savannah in the good
order and quietness with which they will sub
mit to an irreversible fate.
General Grant communicates an official dis_
patch from General Bragg, copied from the
Richmond papers of Saturday, from which it
appears that up to Friday no attack bad been
made on the forts below Wilmington. The
fleet had probably been forced to return — to
Beaufort by the bad weather, but on that
morning (Friday) twenty-six vessels reap
peared off Cape Fear.
The Bankrupt Bill.
The following are the principal features of
the Bankrupt bill as it passed the House of
Representatives at Washington :
"First. The discharge of the honest debtor
upon the surrender of his property,
"Second. The protection of the creditor
against the fraudulent practices and reckless
conduct of his creditor.
"The District Courts are to be made Courts
of Bankruptcy, and the bankrupt business,
where there is no opposing interest, is to be
transacted by officers to be called Registers.
When there are opposing interests, they are
to make up the cases for the decisions of the
Judge. They are to be. the hands and the
eyes of the Court, but are neither to be
clothed with its power or its discretion. Re
ceiving fixed salaries, it will be their interest
as well as their duty to discourage litigation.
" Creditors are to have assignees, but the
law ignores the cumbrous machinery of offi
cial assignees, accountants, registry of courts
and accountants general. Insolvency is a
matter between the bankrupt and his credit
pre, and can best be managed by them 'under
the direction of the courts. Every question
raised by litigants contesting the banbankrup t's discharge, must be heard and decided i n
open court, in which respect this bill differs
from other laws. Commissioners appointed
by the Supreme Court are to establish a code
of rules to secure uniform practice.
Honest debtors are to receive an allowance,
so that they may not be turned upon the
world without a currency note, if they have
surrendered their effects for administration
and distribution among their creditors.
Another provision gives a debtor an oppor
tunity to meet his creditors, and if they are
satisfied of his integrity and ability to wind
up his affairs under a trust•deed, with the
same effect as if the proceedings had been
conducted in the Court of Bankruptcy."
This law has yet to be acted upon by the
Saiate, and what disposition will be made of
it does not seem to be indicafed by any action
of its members, or by any canvass of their
