[FBOM O?B OWN COnnESPONDEHT.]
Columbia, Dccomber 10.?My lottcr of last night hav
ing been entiroly taken up with tho consideration of tho I
Stay Law, your readers were not informed of tho other
proceedings of the House on yesterday; and though I
am doubtful whether those proceedings will bo of any
sp?cial interest, stUl I wlU give them for tho benefit of |
tlioHo who aro certainly entitled to tho information.
The bill to organize the Executive Department being
the special order, was token up, and was amended by
inserting Treasurer wherever ComptroUer General was
used, and by making the salary of Governor $3500. This
bill niakeB tho prcsont Treasurer of tho Uppor Division
?he Treasurer of the State, and by Insisting on this
measure tho friends of Mr. Hood have not only lost for
him a year's additional tenure of tho office, but they
have also, when he could easily havo been elected, in
Slated on doing an act against which, to say the least,
grave constitutional doubts may bo urged.
Tho 8onate having consented, the House resolution
-appointing a committeo to sit in Charleston with regard
to tho Freedmcn's Bureau was resumed.
Several committees made reports. Among others tho
Committeo on tho Judiciary reported on bill to increase
the pay of constables ; a bill to change temporarily tho
placo of holding Courts for Beaufort District, and also
ou a resolution to require payment, in advance, of fees,
to officers. Tho Military Committee mode a report on
that part of the Governor's Message which reforred to
the Military School, which was agreed to and sent to tho
Tho Committee on the Judiciary reported a bill to I
regulate the sittings of tho Court of Appeals, and against |
the expediency of establishing o new Judicial District.
The Commltee of Woyo and Mcana reported against
resolutions which wero offered at the extra session by
Mr. Keitt, proposing to tax all moneys collected in tho
State. This report certainly mcots with tho approval :
of most men -who have ever considered the subject In
its practical or constitutional bearings.
Mr. Waoener reported on memorial of City of Charles
ton to open and widen streets ; also, on bill for the some
Mr. Lord, from the Committee on tho Judiciary, re. I
ported on resolution to Inquire into the expediency of |
-changing the law of cvidonccf and also a bill to enable
parties, plaintiff and defendant, to testify; which bill j
was road for the first time, and continued over to tho
-next session. This bill contemplates a much needod
change in our law. It is the province of the jury to
-weigh testimony, and it has long seemed to be desirable
- that the whole testimony should be placed before them.
This con only be done by placing both parties on the
stand, and getting from them their own statements.
. Even in criminal cases, it would seezu that the accused
should be allowed to make his statement The Jury can
take It for what it is worth. The bill, however, does not J
i -go as far ob this, and It may bo wise that this change in
our law should not be made.
A bill to ox tend relief to the Greenville Railroad was
.-read and reforred to the Committee; so, too, were a bul
to organize the militia; a bill to divide Plcions ; a bill to
incorporate the Agricultural and Savings Bank; and a
LUI to amend the law with regard to the inspection of |
Resolutions, offered by Mr. Sncaz.'awo, "to appoint a |
.committee to nominate officers of the Bank of the 8 to to,
were agreed to.
The House, after the consideration of tho special
-order, took a recess, to meet again at 7 o'clock P. M.,
-when the huge Military BUI of the Benate was read for I
the first time. The Reading Clerk read rapidly, and I
completed his task in about an hour?much to the joy
of those who were obliged to listen to Its uninteresting

The Montgomery, Alabama, Mail, dwelling upon
the fact that Southerners generally prefer their soldiers
to represent them in Congress and elsowhere, says :
"To vote for such men is not to hurl defiance at the
?conqueror, but rather to exerclso tho prlvUego of com
pUmenting gallant men, without a thought whether it
may or may not please tho conqueror. The true con
queror is not only devoid of Jealousy, but is willing to
sharo his meal and couch with tho vanquished. Ho has
learned to honor his prisoner from the electric sympathy
which is always generated by bnUets and bayonets.
"At Rich Mountain, a gallant South Carolinian, In
command of a section of artillery, had fought his guno
well, untU he had not men left to work them. Our linos
were broken, and the enemy was dashing upon him. A
.shell dismounted ono of his pieces, killed bis horso un
der him, sad shattered his right arm. Gaining his feet,
the gallant feUow mounted his remaining gun, and
.standing erect as it dashed away under a shower of bul

Charleston, 8. C, December 6, 1865.
the Editor of the Daily News :
Ma. EDrron : Tbcro seems to mo to bo a very unfair
and harmful imputation; In your cditoriul this morn
ing, against tho friends of tho frccdmcn, in tho state
ment that it is uncertain that they will allow the freedmen
to work, even if the latter are inclined to do so.
If tho statement had been merely slanderous to tho
friends of tho lroc?lmcn, it would not havo bcon worth
our while to notico it; but It conveys a falso Impression
to tho public, and, worso than this, announces to tho
freedmen as a fact that which it pretends is so injurious
for them to know, and which certainly has not been
taught them from any other source.
Wo defy any person to point to an order of tho Frec?l
men's Bureau, or any paragraph which instructs tho
freedmen, that they aro not expected to work. On tho
contrary, the wholo burdon of orders of late, as well as
verbal instructions to agents, has bcon to insure an
immediate renewal of contracts for another year, dis
abuso their minds of erroneous impressions relativo to
lands, and prevent, beforehand, If possible, tho disturb
ances which might naturally ariso at the end of tho
year, when tho existing contracts close.
To this cud, also, has been tho tendency of all public
addresses to the freedmen. It was regarded the duty of
both Military and Bureau authorities to see that nothing
of n contrary tendency be allowed.
To substantiate what has been said in this communi
cation, tho last Circular from tho Assistant Commis
sioner of this State la enclosed; and, as It is of public
Interest at this time, perhaps yon wiU bo willing to
publish It. JUSTICIA.

Charleston, S. C, December 2, 1865. J
In onlcr to avoid the evils that must necessarily fol
low a failure on the part of employers and frccdmcn to
onter into contracts for tho coming year, it has bcon de
termined to require that attention bo given immediately
to tho making of contracts. The accompanying form
has been adopted and will be observed.
It is hopod that tho stipulation in this form, providing
for tho coutbiuanco of theso coutracts, after tho restora
tion of civil authority, under such rules and regulations
as may bo adoptod by tho Legislature of this State, wi 11
prove satisfactory to all parties. It is recommended
that, as far as practicable, In order not to break up their
homes for tho present, freedmen be employed by, and
make contracts with, thoir former masters, and that
caro bo taken to pr?vido for tho maintenance of tho help
less and infirm. This end will be most easily secured
by paying tbo freedmen for their labor, in clothing, food,
shelter, and medical attendance, and such additional
wages in money, or portions of the crops, as may bo
The Snb-AsslBtant Commissioner will designate an o ni
cer at each Court Houso in tho Sub-District, to act as
agent for tho Frccdmon's Bureau, and to tako charge of
tho making of contract-. This officer, associated with
two citizens of the District (Magistrates, if they can bo
obtained), will constitute a Board, under tbo provisions
of Circular No. 5, from Headquarters of the Bureau. In
coses where tho employer and freedmen cannot agrco
upon tbo terms of the contract, this Board, after a care
ful examination of all tbo facts, wiU endeavor to fix tho
terms to tho satisfaction of both parties. Tho two citi
zens, members of the Board, shall bo paid three dollars
per day for tho time actually engaged in tbo discharge
of their duty?the accounts to be certified to by tbo
officer associated with thorn, and approved by the Sub
To defray tho necessary expenses of these proceedings,
a feo of fifty cents shaU bo charged and collected for each
freedman bo employed, in cases where ten or a less num
ber aro employed; if moro than ten, twenty-five cents
will be collected for each additional freedman so employ
ed?the entire foo to bo paid by the employer. These
feos will be collected by the officer In charge, and ac
counted for to tho Sub-Asslelaut Commissioner.
No disbursements by him will be allowed, except tho
per diem of the associate members of the Board, upon
approved accounts. A weekly report will be made by
him to tho Sub-Assistant Commissioner, which wUl be
accompanied by a correct copy of all contracts entered
Into. The Sub-Assistant Commissioner will report
weekly to these bcadrmartors tho- number of contracts
made, tho number of freedmen contracted with, and any
other matter of importance or Interest connected with

The interests of freedmen will bo carefully guarded,
and their rights in every respect protected; but, at the
sanio time, thoy must be compelled to fulfil their agree
ments, and, if idle or vicious, must suffer tho penalties
for euch conduct.
No effort should be spared to correct the erroneous
Impressions that prevail among the freedmen In regard
to a division of land, that it is not necessary for them to
make contracta, or that they will be permitted to leave
their present homes, and go in great numbers to any
other part of the country. By order of

[FOB THE DAILY NEWS.]
ICdtsto Island? Tlic Region. Cultivated, Sic.
Messrs. Editors: Under the authority of the Freed
men's Bureau, several owners of land on this island
made a visit there on Tuesday, the 6th Instant. The ob
ject of the visit was to ascertain whother the freedmen
on the plantations would contract for their cultivation.
Under the order of Gen. Sherman of 16th January, 1865,
which, in this respect, seems to be still in force, no white
person can visit this Island without leave from the mili
tary authorities. Upon the arrival of the Government
steamboat at the landing, the officer commanding the
Island aUowod the owners to land, and, after escorting
them to the headquarters, he furnished three of them
with faculties for going to their plantations, and gave
them a guard. Interviews were then had with the freed
men on their plantations, and propositions were made
to them for the cultivation of the lands. In each caso
they refused to enter Into contract, or to make any terms
with the ownors for the cultivation of tho land. The
population consists mostly of colored persons who have
[ migrated to the ueacoast since tho war began. The Im
pression seems still to be that the Government has
promised them lands, or will give them lands, in Florida
or olsowhoro. It is but just to say, that the officers of
the company of colored troops gavo such assistance as
was at their disposal to tho visitors, and sought to dis
abuse tho minds of the freedmen of the impression of
these lands being given to them by the Government.
There are those who have discouraged the freedmen
from entering into those contracts, or their absolute and
general refusal so to do could not exist. It la the con
viction of those who mado this visit that, as soon as it is
goneraUy understood that tho lands will be restored, tho
freodmon will consent to acknowledge tho title of the
land-owners,- and will contract with them. As onerous
as this condition is apon the freeholders, they are still
willing to accept it, and in good faith to carry it out.
The Freedmen's Bureau have thus given an opportuni
ty, for the first time, to the owner of the land to visit
his property, and to confer with those in possession.
The notice was given on Monday afternoon to leave the
next morning at six o'clock. Tho owners of tho land
are dispersed through this State and many of them In
Georgia, and In case notice of ten days or a fortnight bo
given, all who can spare the expense of coming to the
city will doubtless do so, and cheerfnUy avail themselves
of the privilege of visiting their ancient homes.
Very little of the island has boon cultivated during the
past year, and if provisions enough have been thereon
produced for the support of tho population, it la Indeed
difficult to perceive it. From the appearance of the ne
? looted surface of the island, one would conclude that
he population thereon must bo supplied with food for
the coming year from abroad. For this they must look
to the Government, or to those other than themselves
who shall have charge of the lands. The same condi
tion of things pr?sent- itself In reference to all the lands
In sight of which the traveler passes. In going from
