NoveinboT 18. 1861.
To bis Excellency, Governor P. W. Pickens,
Sir : At the request ofyour Excellency, made
to me yesterday at three headquarters, I have
the honor of presenting my views of the present
attitude and behavior of the 'negroes In ibis
portion of the State Intrusted to my Immediate
So far from there bltg aiy Insurrectionary
feeling among them, I can assure your Excel
lency that I have neither seen nor beard ot any
act of pillaging, Incendiarism, or ylolenoe In
It Is true, that the negroeg of ft few planta
tions have shown a splrit'of Insubordination,
by refusing to move higher up the country,
wben ordered to do so by their owners, but this
disobedience should be assigned rather to a
feeling of dismay and utter helplessness .at
being left alone and unprotected by the pre
cipitate abandonment by their masters of their
plantations, than from any organized plan ol
resistance to tho authority they bad been ac
customed to obev.
But I now fee! much satisfaction In statin?,
for the Information of vour Excellency, that ibe
negro(sare fast recovering from their fright.
and coming lorin irom ineir maing; places, ana
quietly and submissively resuming ineir agri

In conclusion, I would respectfully advise1,
that all planters and overreers, who are not
mustered Into service, and are owners or agents
of property upon the main land, should, with

WHAT THE YAXKMS ARE DOIKO OX THE SOUTH
The Savannah Republican of the Zlst says:
The distance of Hilton Head from the main
land, and the hazardous nature of all naviga

any very definite Idea of their number or move

situated, and are now confined to Hilton Head,
Plokney Island, immediately west, and sepa

point known as Bay Point, on Jenkln's Island,
across the sound and opposite Fort Walker on
It is said they are throwing up extensive and
formidable works on Hilton Head, thus giving
evidence of an Intention to make a permanent
lodsment on the island. SKull (Jreen is now
completely under their control, and tho works
at Braddock's Point, on the south end of the
island, 'command the entrance to Daufuskl
It Is said that a party of two Federals ven
lured on the nulnland .a day or two since,
when, being discovered by our men, one ol
them was captured; the other got to his boat
In time and made noon nis escape. Tne pris

thousand of the twenty thousand with whom
they set fail. Ha could give no acconnt of the
remaining seven thousand.
THE YANKEES GARRY OFF A MAN AND HI8 SLAVES.
The Savannah Xews publishes the following!
On Wednesday last, Mr. John Chaplin look
with him seven negroes, and went in two boa's
to the plantation of his aunt, Mrs. Dupn, on
Daufuskl Island, for the purpose of bringing
away such property as could be transported
On Wednesday night, he, with the negroes, oc
cupied Mrs. Dunn'a dwelling, intending to
leave in the morning when the tide favored.
About two o'clock yesterday morning, the dnor
of the hcu'o was broken down by a p trty of
ten Llncolnltes, who captured Mr. Chaplin anil
live of the negroes, and conveyed them from
the Island in a boat. Two of the neeroes es

TUE COTTON CHOI' AMI TI1H NEW DErgNCItS OF
A letter In thn Richmond Examiner from
Charleston, dated Nov. 21, says :
' The amount of cotton abandened on the
plantations was very considerable. It is not
easy to estimate the quantity with certainty,
out is generally saia lo ne aooui nueen nun
dredbales. Many of the planters, before quit
ting, set Ore to their crops and such other com
bustible property on their premises as could
not be removed. It la certainly to be regretted
that, in the confusion that prevailed, this very
proper step was not more generally taken.
DKFANC1.II Or CHARLESTON AND SAVANNAH.
In my list letter, I alluded to tbe strength
ot tbe defences of Charleston. Savannah also
has been strongly fortified on a plan for which
the conformatlou ol Its harbor affords peculiar
tucilltles, nod I understand that General Lee
sa'js that that clly la now in a condition to
make a protracted and mccessful defence.
General Lee baa gone to Brunswick, Ga.
Cltnrs TO BE DESTROYED AND THE NEUROES TO BE
Hh.NT INTO TUE ISTtltlOII.
But tbo first surprise ut the Invasion has now
died awav. and I think the Northern Govern
ment may reokon, without fear ot mistake, that
It has obtained the very last bug of cotton, and
also the lBt contraband, taat It can ever hope
to sella by pouncing upon the coast ol South
Carolina. Concerted arrangements between
the planters and tbo military authorities have
wisely beu made by which no plantation will
In future be abandoned until thncroD Is utterly
consumed, the gin house and other buildings
destroyed, the live stock driven off, and the
hands lemovrMl to lhn Int-rlor. In the m t
expod loca'itl s, tru. In. tin Islands ndj icer.t
to fort Roval. on which the enemy may at any
moment make his appearance, tbe work of dt-i
structlon Is already commenced. I
NEOROES AND MCLES OV THEIR WAT.

st the whole atmosphere in the city, and fori
miles around, notwithstanding tne Drignt moon
light, was hazy and lurid. Many could not nc-1
count for the phenomenon It waa the effect)
of the wholesale coufl igrat!on nf cotton iww
going on at E'llslo and other islands Interven

Wherever the marauders choose next to land,
and It Is useUss to disguise the fact that th-y ;
can laud at a greas many point", they will find
nothing but Jdevalated fields, deserted by nil1
saving the avenging presence or the pamsin
riflemen. The patriotic sacrifice which has beep
made by our planters ia all thn greater when
we consider that the orops of the past season
have far exceeded tho best ever before known.
Blakiag Ike Rebels pay their Debts.
From the New Yoik Tribune.
As a largo nnmber ofyour readers are into
routed nere-mallv. as well as generally, in the
question now before the Cabinet, aa to whetbi r
ihey will or will not sustalu Provost Judgu
Freese, pf , Alexandria, in his recent decision
touching claims due from disloyal to loyal
clilxens.l have thought it well to Inform you
and them as lo its exact condition at the pres
The President and every member of tbi
CablneT excepi Attorney General Bates, are In
favor of sustaining the action of the Provost
Court, and but for tho unfortunate posillon rf
Judge Bates, would have bad an order issue I
to tnls euect long Bince. juuga uawe umor
tonately for himself as well as for tho whole
country listened to an ex parte statement made
by the counsel of one ot the parties whose
goods had been seized, and thereupon Indnced
the Assistant Secretary of War to issue the or
der which led to the subsequent issue of tho
two other orders, whereby the proceedings of
the Court were stayed In plvll cases.
Had Jadge TSatcs waited to have heard the
other side before taking action, the probabill
ties are that the proceedings of tbe court wcutd
not have been stayed. Having placed himself
In this position unthinkingly, as I have the
charity to belleve-he now hesitates to revise
his opinion or allow others to do so. He makes
It, I understand, a personal matter, and Inslsli
upon It that the other members of the Cabinet
shall not overrule him; but since bis first opin
ion was founded on doubtful if not false state
ments, made by.a secession lawyer, and at a
time when only one side of the question had
been submitted, l.euner a aor anv outer lawyer:
of this city and I have conversed with many
about It can see any impropriety In his mak
ing a different decision, now mat an uw taeui
are before him.
Tha fnp.t la. Mia, nueallon never waa a ones
lion of law, and hence ought never to have
been submitted to the Attorney General at all.
It was a question, rather, of military necessity,
0r national policy a question growing directly
pat of the rebellion, and never would have
arisen at all bnt for the rebellion a question
upon which loial cUUem are arrayed upon the
one side, and rebels lathe Government upon thn
other a question which Involves either tbe
giving or wltholdlng of ' aid and contort " to
(Tie enemies of the country, and this, too, to an
extent of near $200,000,000 -a question, In
short, as to whether the Sequestration Act pis
sed by tbe so-called Confederate Congress
should be respected, or effectually annulled.
The court Itself, (as I understand It,) before
which tbe question was originally decided, is n
military court, established as a military necessi
ty, because ox me aosence, oT an oiaer auworuy,
and only assumed civil Jurisdiction because of
being in an enemy's oountry, where no other
antborl'yoonld be appealed to byloyaicltlz'n-,
Judge Freese Is a military officer, holding the
rank, as I understand, of assistant adjutant
general in the army. As it originated with
the military authorises, It should have been
left just where It bfgao, and Judge Bates
should not have had, nor ought he now to have,
any voice in the matter. As a question of
policy. H might very properly have been
lirnught before the Cabinet j but as a question
of right and propriety, It should have been left
wholly with the Secretary of War orcommmd
ing general. I tru-t this view will still b
taken of It, and that thn Cabinet will refer the
hulo subject to tne secretaiyoi war.io anas
he may think proper In the premises. This
will relievo Judge Bates from a direct con
demnalion by tbe Cabinet, and again put In
motion a court irom wnicn tuo country may
expect great good.
In this city every loyal citizen commend the
action of Judge Freese. I have talked with
lawyers, judges, senators, and others, upon the
subject, and have yet to meet with iho first
man who condemns tbo action. One of your
own celebrated lawyers, Mr. Evarts, was hero
last week, urging the Administration to sustain
the court. Tho memorial upon tbe subject,
presented by the Chamber of Commerce ot
your own city, was so clear and conclusive that
no one thought tbe Administration would hes
Itate a day after receiving It. Add to this tbe
fact that the press of the whole oountry bai
iinmulvooallv sustained Judge Freese's decis
ion, and none can but wonder that the Admin
titration did not sanction It at once.
It is a growing opinion here tnat ir Judge
Bates continues to oppose his personal quib
bles In a case like this a case In which your
own merchauU aro Interested lo tbe extent of
over $63,000,000, and tho wnoie country to tne
rient nf some $200.000.000-beslde the ad-
nin,ra In a military Dolut of view to be
gained from It a voico will come up from tbe
whole country that he be removed, and that
some neuer man us put m um mue.
From tbo best Information that I oan gather
at present, I think tho court will bo mstaln
ed probably In the way above Indicated
namely, by referring tbe wholo matter to the
Secretary of War, on tho ground that it Is a
military and not a legal question,
I bavn not the honor of knowlnz Judirn
Freee personally, but certainly a more junt
decision never unanairu irom any man man
that given by biro, and the voice of .tho whole
country Is, and will contlnuo to do, that be
must be sustained,
Never think to eotortaia people with what
lies out of their yay, be It over so carious In
Its kind. Who would think of regaling a circle
qf ladles with th? beautlos of Homer's Greek,
or a compnny of country squires with blr Isaao
