An order ha? hoon issued from the War Depart

the Mi?ary Commission and Court Martial? are
not authorized, therefore, will not assume ?j?ris

President JOHNSON continues to interpret his
Proclamation. Thc people of thc Southern State?
will experience an inexpressible sen'c of relief in
the assurance that their live?, liberties and effect?
are no longer suspended on thc revengeful whims
and capricious humors of military commanders
and the/>. myrmidon?; but are protected once
more by_t.be sacred safegoards of the Cf; stitu

freemen--if any such thore be in tbc?c degener
ate; days-will not again be shocked by a repeti
tion of tboso disgraceful nets of arbitrary and
unconstitutional power, which during toe past
year, have so.often brought irpf?n us unmoritcd
6%aine, humiliation and punishment; acts which
K?iflul? have brought ablush of shumo to thc brow
of any patriotic citizen, no matter where he lived.
And in putting a stop to theso base and bloody
Military. Commission?, Prcsidont JOHNSON has
been tsrdy. The order which wo publish above,
might, safely havo been issued in December last,
when tho restoration of the Habcna Corpus to the
" loyal" States was announced. There was then
no occasio? to detain the Southern States under
tho yoke of military power : no occasion toleavo
thcm'dcprivod of theprivilcgo of Havens Corpus.
They werercdnced to subjection. Indeed never
wcrp apcojffR so absolutely submissive to the au
thority of Government. And not only wes thc
spirits af revolt extinguished in the South, but
all its means of resistance woro annihilated ; it
was incapsiblo even of a repulse oga; 'st thc dom
inant power. Peace prevailed from _e Potomac
to tho Rio" G rando; evcrywheru thc Federal Au
thorityiwas re-established and consolidated. Un
der-these,c?jo.umstances what n??_e.ssity compelled
a donial of civil liberty to tho people of tho
South ? Tf hat public interest required that they
should be Still held nrider tho sway of thc sword?
?tis perhaps unnecessary and unr/iso in us to

may-and we haye no doubt tue papers aro true
-thc negroes wore-certainly tho worst sufferers*
And so it will ever bo. But how-great the pity
that all tfief terrible sufferings and dnugors and
destitution nod death now falling upon the un

SERIOUS DUELING AFFRAY.-A desperate
dael was fought on "W?-u?iesday. ia the neigh
borhood of tho city of New Orleans;, between
an ex-Confederate and Federal officer. The
weapons were pistole, and at the first fire the
Federal received thc bullet of his antagonist
through both lungs, causing a dangerous and
probably a fatal wound. The ex-Conf. derate
was sbor. through botk legs, below the knee,
the tibia of the right leg being broken; Though
serious, his hurts are not dangerous. We be
lieve thc quarrel arose from* politics. The
Federal is a nativ? of France, whilst the ex
Confederate is either a native Frenchman, or
a Creole ol French extraction, who was. an
officer in Coppc-n's Louisiana battalion, and
had been publicly complimented by General
Lee OL the battle-field for kia gallantry.

A NEGRO WOMAN KILLS SIX OF HER CIIIL
PREK BY STARVATION.-Memphis, April 2".
I have reliable information of one cf tbe
most inhuman acts' of a negro woman yet
known. Lajt fall, a woman, with five itmall
children, from six months of age to six years,
with old grand-mother, blind, a deaf mute,
Lame to the farm of a Mr. Welch, of Ponto
)C county, Mississippi, and engaged to work
?it sixteen dollars per month. About three
weeks ago, it was noticed the did not come
mt to work, and, when beiDg questionpd,Ebe
complained of being sick. Another day pat sod,
when Mr. Welch lound ber missing from the
plantation, 'when he instituted a search, and
found the stair door which lcd up into a dark,
narrow room, heavily barricaded and locked.
After some difficulty he'opened the door with
an ax, and discovered the old woman and
two children lying against- the door, dead.
Another child was afr thc head of the stairs,
dead also. The other two were just alive,
and in an advanced state of starvation. The
oldest of the latter two has since died; the
other, a boy, it is thought, cannot survive.
This black wrotcb was fouad three miles
from Jackson, Miss., with her paramour, a ne
gro man, who bad been seen strolling around
Slr. Welch's plantation with ber. lier reason
(or this inhuman action was that she did not
like to work so hard to support the old woman
and the " brats." She was carried back to
Pontotoc county, to be tried.
PROSPECT OF A WAR WITH FRANCE.
" Druid," the Washington correspondent of |

There is evory reason to believe that we
are on tbe verge of misunderstanding with
France. Jf tho recent opinion of Attorney
General Speed that arms may bc sent to the
Jnarists in Maxico is lollowed by correspond
ing action, it will surely be regarded by tbe
French Government as a violation of Mr.
Seward's pledge of absolute neutrality, and
the French troops in Mexico instead of being
withdrawn will be reinforced.

Four days after the Confederates fired on
Sumpter, a sop of Mrs. Duncan, of Mecca,
Ohio, enlisted for the, war. He joined a
Western regiment, and was reported killed at
Stone River. His body was brought borne
and interf?d. Afterwards news waa brought
to thc parents by return?d Union prisoners
that their son was not dead, bnt in the Con
federate prison in Georgia. Other prisoners
returned from" there last-spring and brought
the news of bis^rea'th to tho sorely distressed
family. When the war cloded an opportuni
ty .was offered to penetrate tho lines. Mr.
Duncan sent down and had his son. brought
home again and buried. Having had htm
buried twice, as was supposed, it was natural
that-they should be. reconciled to their loss ;
but a few days ago their son Bob, In spit.*; of
bis wounds and deaths and funerals, came
marching home, and is now enjoying thc hos
