Like its predecessor, in tho hands of
General Hunter, this project of General
Saxtou may, by this time, be fairly con
sidered a failure. Several weeks ago
there was an awkward halt in recruit
ing, to remedy which the steamer Ren
Dcford was dispatched to Georgetown;
S. C, and Pernandma, Fla ,for tho pur
pose of bringing in all tho able bodied
blacks to be secured, and extra meas
ures were adopted whereby to drum up
from the plantations all whom tho
glory of brilliant breeches and bright
brass buttons could allure. Yet weeks
havo lengthened into months, and the
regiment is still o far from completo
that its field officers cannot bo mustered
out ii,0 1 i"to service Already tho negroes aro
'chafing at tho restraints of military
I disc-inline, and frequent desertions aro
front of Corinth I mum-ted. vhilo tho severe measures
necessary to retain in tho service the
blacks now armed aro tending to create
alarm and consternation among tho
others Tho regiment, what there is of
it, hangs liko a dead woight upon tho
department, while its organization, at

Tho duty for which the Government

Tho proper duty of tho contrabands

Government can profitably employ
them is tho discharging and coaling of
transports, and the ruff and turn bio

ments at Hilton Head.
Tho armed negroes, howovcr, have
