HBAliQi'ABTESiir Army of thcUnitciStitw, )
December 18. 18C5. 5
To Mi excellency, Andrew Johnffin, president
of the United States Sir: In reply to your
nolc of the ICth inst., requesting a report from
me, civing such information as I may be pos
sessed of, coming within the scope of the in
quiries mide by the Senate of the Un'teJ States
in their resolution of the 12th inst. I have the
honor to submit the following, with jour ap
proval and also that of the honorable secretary
of war:. I left Washington city on the 27th
of last month, for the purpose of miking a tour
of inspection throughout some of the southern
states litciy in rebellion, and to sec what chang
es were necessary in the disposition of the mili
tary forces of the country, how these forces
could be reduced, expenses curtailed, &c , nd
to learn.aa far as possible the feelings and in
tentions of the citizens cf these states towards
the general government. The state of Virginia
being so accessible to Washington city, and in
formation from this quarter therefore being
readily obtained, I hastened through that state
without conversing or meeting with any of its
citizens. In Raleigh, K. C, I spent one day,
in Charleston, S.C., two days, and in Savannah
andAugusta, Ga. each one day. floth in travel
ing and whilst stopping, I saw much and con
versed freely with the citizens of those states, as
well as with officers of the army who had been
stationed among them. The following arc the
conclusions come to by mc .
I am satisfied that the mass of thinking men
cf the South accent the crcsent situation of
affairs in rood faith. The questions which have
hitherto divided the sentiments of the people of
the two sections slavery and state rights, ana
the right of the state to secede from the Union
they regard as having been settled forever by
the highest tribunal arms that man can resort
to. 1 was pleased to learn from leading men
whom I met, that tbey not only accepted the
decision arrived at as final, but believe, now
that the smoke of battle has cleared away and
time has been given for reflection, that this
decision has been a fortunate one for the whole
conntrv. thcT recti Tin" the like Lencfits from
it, with those who opposed them on the field and
in council. Four years of war. during which
the laws were executed only at the point of the
bayonet throughout the states in rebellion, have
left the people possibly in a condition not to
yield that icady, obedience to civil authority the
American people have generally been in the
habit ot yielding, This would render the pres
ence of email garrisons throughout these states
necessary, until such time as labor returns to
its proper channel, ami civil authority is tuny
established. I did not meet any one, either
amonc those holdins places under the govern
meat, or citizens of southern states, who thought
it practicable to withdraw the military from the
South. At present, whites and blacks mutually
req aire the protection of the general government
There is sucn universal acquiescence in mc au
thority of the general government throughout
the portions of the country -visited by me, that
the mere presence of a military force, without
regard to numbers, is sufficient to maintain
erder. The good of the country requires that a
force be kept in the interior where there arc
many fnedmcn. Elsewhere in the southern
states except at the forts upon the tea coast, no
force is necessary.
They should all be white troops. The reasons
for this are obvious, without mentioning many
oftheu. The presence of black troops, lately
slaves, demoralizes labor, both by their advice
and by furnishing in their camps a resort for
the frvedmcn for long distance around. White
troops generally excite no opposition, and there
fore a small number of them can maintain order
in a git en district. Colored troops mutt be
kept in bodies sufficient to defend themselves.
It is not the thinking men who would do vio
lence towards any class of troops, sent among
tbcm by , the general government, but the ignor
ant in some places might, and the late slave, too
who might be imbued with the idea that the
property of his late master should by right be
long to him, at least should have no protection
from the colored soldier. There is danger
of a collision being brought on by such
My observations lead mc to the conclusion
that the citizens of the southern states are anx
ious to return to self-government within the
Union as soon jas possible ; that, whilst recon
structing, they want and require protection
from the government ; that they think it is re
quired by the government an! is cot humiliating
to them as citizens ; and that if such a course
was pointed out, they would pursue it in good
faith. It is to be regretted that there cannot be
a greater commingling, at this time, between
the citizens of the two sections, and particularly
of those! entrusted with the law-making power.
I did not give the operations ol the fi ecu
men's bureau that attention I would have done,
if more time had been at my disposal. Conver
sation however, on the subject, with officer
connected with the bureau, led mc to think that
in some states its aSairs have not been conduct
ed with good judgment and economy, and that
the belief, widely spread among the frcedmcn of
the southern states that the lands ot their
former owners will, at least in part, be divided
among them, has come from agents of the bu
reau. This belief is seriously interfering with the
willingness of the freedmen to make contracts
for the coming year. In some form, the freed
men "s bureau is an absolute necessity, until
civil law is established and enforced, securing to
frcedmcn their rights and full protection. At
present, however, it is independent of the "mili
tary establishment of the country, and seems
to be operated by the different agents of the
bnrcau, according to their individual notions.
Gen Howard, the able head of the bureau, made
friends everywhere by the just and fair instruc
tions and advice he gave, but the complaint in
South Carolina was that when he left they went
on as before.
Many, perhaps the majority of the agents of
the freedmcn's bureau, ad use the frceJmcn
that by that own industry they must live. To
this end they endeavor to secure employment for
them, and sec that both contracting parties com
ply with their engagements. In some cases, I am
sorry to say, the freedmen's minds do not seem
to be disabused of the idea that the freedman
has the right to live without care or provision
for the future. The effect of a belief in the di
vision of lands is idleness and accumulation in
camps, towns and cities. In such cases I thiuk
it will be found that vice and disease will tend
to the extermination or great destruction of the
colored race. It csnnot be expected that opin
ions held by men at the South fur years, can be
changed in a dy, and therefore the freedmen
require, for a few years, not only laws to pro
tect theni.but the fostering care ot those whoiisill
give them good counsel, and on whom they c, I-
reiy. ine ireeamen s bureau being s'-ts:U-
requires all the expense of a separate, orgaufea- J
lion, one noes not necessarily know what tho
other is doing, or what (.n)crs they arc acting
under, It seems to me Una oouW be corrected
by regarding every officer on duty with trooiss
in the icuthern states as agents of the freed
mcn's bureau, and then have all orders frm
thebcad of the bureau sent through the de
partment commanders. This would create uni
formity of action throughout the Scuth, woilV
insure the orders and instructions from '
head of the bureau being carried, out. aryl 1'
would retire from dot j and pay a hrr' nn'mbcr
of the employes of the government. C have the
honor to' be, very respectfully tour obedieet i

of Eoston, of . rVngc of their illustrated
books, nnd in copvingaml endorsing me 101-
lowing descriptive article :
Of that exquisite and thus far unrivalled Look,
The .irisl's -Erfi'ionoflnviso'sSKiTcn Boos,
our readers have already heard. Universally
regarded as the chef-d'oeuvre of American il
lustrated books.it presents in this.the thirdycar
of its reign, added claims on our admiration, for
daintily printed as ever, it has twenty new and
additional Vignettes. The Fables of -rfcsop,

Mual excellence as
i a woik ol art. ne -niver-
cnide press" has never printed a more exquisite
book than this fine edition ol atsop.
One other jUostrated.book just i)ued by this
bouse,claims almost equal praise with the .tfsop, (
boLb. in the exceuence.oi "a ijpv8j,uj
beauty of its engravings. Pieciola, tht oharm-
ing and fascinating story of prison life which
has made jsantme s (Bonirace s) name immo
tal, and which here appears most graphically
illustrated, with Flameng's icxquisi'e designs,
and a great variety of bead and tail pieces, into
each of which is wrought with admirable taste,
the humble gilliflowcr the "pauore Piceiola",
whose discovery, growth, care and fate are eo
beautifully told by the author.
ifut these enterprising publishers mult needs
try their hands also at illuminated books, and
succeeded most admirably. The TwKSir-ruiED
Psalm, with emblematic illumination tn
colors, is worthy a place beside thejbest Missall
of the Middle Ages. Nor is "The Tubes Kisos
or Obiext," a whit liehind its companion vol
ume in beauty, though :n a somewhat different
style of illumination. The words and music
(both exquisite.) and the outline of the designs
are by the gifted editor of the "Church Jour
not," iter. John 11. Hopkins, Jr.
Our readers do not need to be told what is the
rank which F. 0. C. Darlcy holds as a delinea
tor of character, whether grave or humorous;
but he has done nothing which will render his
reputation more enduring in the future than the
designs by which he has illustrated the "Selec
tion or Waii Lthics," and Trowbridge's ex
qusitc descriptive poem "The Vaqaboxds."
"iuE visit jeom sr. Nicholas." in which Mr
Darley has translated into actual life, Dr. C. C.
Moore's famous " Twas the Night before Christ
mas," is a fine example of his power of depict
ing tne numorous pnasc ol We.
Mr. Henry L. Stephens is another artist, in
still a different walk, who possesses abilities of a
very nign orucr. and whom this house has first
brought prominently before the public. Mr.
Stephens' speciality is the presentation of the
grotesque legends and fairytales which have
amused our childhood, in an effective guise, and
with an ideality which elevates them from toy
books to the rank of works of high art. In this
style he has illustrated Clndehella: Puss in
Boots, and Beauty and the Beast, in colors; and
The Death and Burial of Poor Cock Robin; A
Frog he would a Wooing go; The House that
Jack Built; Old Mother Hubbard and her Dog;
The Fox and the Geese, and The Tire Little Tigs,
in tint Mr. Stephens has found an engraver on
stone, capsble of appreciating his designs, and
reproducing them with wonderful fidelity and
skill, in Mr. Julius Bien.
Time would fail us to speak of the large col
lection of admirably printed and illustrated
Juvenile books published by this house, a dc
partment of literature in which they stand pre
eminent. Suffice it to say, that beside editions
of unsurpassed beauty, of Kobinson Crusoe,
Swiss Family Robinson, Hans Andersen's Tales,
Adventures of a Little French Boy, -Esop'a
rabies, iunlord and Merton, Parents 'Assistant,
Kvcnings at Home, and Talcs from Shaksneare
for the Vounir, by Charles and Mary Lamb, all
standard Juveniles of the highest merit, they
have a large number equally beautiful in typog
raphy and illustration, especially prepared for
them, and seme hundred varieties ot 1'icture
Books, Toy Books, and Panoramas on linen and
paper, colored and uncolored, illuminated and
The manufactory of this house at Cambridge,
Mas., where not these alone, but scores of other
choice and elegant books arc stereotyped, elec
trotyped, printed and bound, has become famous
all over this Continent as "The Riverside Press,"
and the perfection and beauty of the work which
emanates lrom it is its best and highest recom
mendation. Two bundrcd persons arc constant
ly employed in the establishment in the various
processes of book-making, and the work in all
stages of completeness passes constantly under
the eye of the experienced head of the establish
ment, Mr. II. O. Houghton, than whom there is
not a more accomplished book manufacturer in
the united states.
