Tbs undersigned have established in the City of

BALE AND RENTING OF LAND IN EASTERN VIR
GINIA.
Having been long engaged ee practitioners of Law In
the Courta of the Elate, and well and extensively ac
quainted with the people of the Eastern part of ft, ite
soil, productions, and social condition, they have it in
their power to extend facilities to those who may wish
to settle or invest capital here. By means of Agents
employed in the several Counties, they will be able to
afford accurate information as to the quality and sltua
tlou of Lands, the state of Titles, Ac., and will give
their personal supervision to the affairs of the Agency.
The Climate, hull, and accessibility by water-courses
and lallroads, of the Lands of Eastern Virginia, offer
unrivalled attractions to settlers, while the transition
from the former to a new system of labor must neces
sarily bring into market, either tor sale or lease, large
bodies of

Ageucy, such as they have undertaken, is believed to
be a public necessity, aud they hope, by diligent atten

HiS COMPANIONS—HOW IT WAS MAN
AGED-HARDSHIPS, PERILS AND SUF
FBRINGS—THEIR RECEPTION BY THE
PEOPLE AND AUTHORITIES OF CUBA.
Correspondence of the New York World.
Havana, June 17.
General J. C. Breckinridge, accompanied by hi*
aid-de-camp, Captain J. Wilson, his faithful war
servant Thoraii, Colonel Taylor Wood, and two
confederate soldiers, arrived at Cardenas on the
11th inat, In an open boat of about one ton bur
then, from tbe coast of Florida. This party, after
the capture of the president of the late republic,
in -.v their way to tbe St. Jobes river, where they
proaa'ed a boat in which they proceeded up that
i.vtr until they retched apolntdne west of Indian
river, near the head of navigation. At St. Johns,
Colonel Taylor Wood Joined the party, having
been captured by tbe command of General Wilson
which captured tbe President of the coufederacy
by accident, but he made good bia escape the
tame night.
Tbe small boat was hauled across the country
from tbe St. John's to Indian river, a distance of
twenty-six miles, and launched Tor the ocean.—
On reaching a point called Gilbert’s bar, near the
month of the river, the boat was beached, and
dragged across a sand spit sixty yards, and
launched in an inlet communicating with tbe
ocean. On this part of tbe route Indian parties
supplied them with scant provisions ot “cumtj,"
of which they made bread. For tbe balance of
tbe voyage they were compelled to live ou shell
fish, caught along the shore, and turtles' eggs, of
which they also laid in stores for their voyage
acre as tbe Gulf stream.
From tbe inlet near the mouth of Indian river
they coasted South some fifty or sixty miles,
when they beached their boat to hunt provisions.
At this time a United States gunboat or steam
transport running down south lietween the shore
and tbe Florida reef observed the party, and the
commander dispatched a boat from tbe vessel to
ascertain who they were and what they ware do
ing there. As tbe boat began to show heraelf,
there was some excitement in camp, and Thomas
began to get hi* weapon* ready for use. They
were temporarily located on a shell ridge, be
tween an impenetrable swamp and the waters of
the ocesn.90 that if they lost their boat they would
perish in the swamp. Taylor Wood, with the cool
determination of “Rough and Ready,” his
grandfather, ordered his two men to launch the
boat, which was instantly accomplished, and the
others having retired undercover of the brush, the
two soldiers took to the oars “ with a will,” and
pulled for the advancing boat which they met at
abont cue-eighth of a mile from the thorn. Au
officer in the stern seat of the gig, with a revolver
iu hand, hailed the boat with the nsnal marine
questions. Taylor Wood became immediately tbe
roughest 'longshore woodsman, wrecker and fish
erman that ever lived iu Florida. “ Ills men were
paroled soldiers; they had to live somehow ; they
were hunting wrecks; and uutfl they could find
something better, they were subsisting on the
ra'her washy charity of the sea-sheli-IUh, driven
far as Indian Key, or possibly Key West. they
bad a boat-loid ot papers, if he wanted to see
them.” Aud the ready hoys pulled foith their
parole documents, which were examined and
found comet. "The folks on shore were of the
same class; had plenty of papers—the same—
and weie trying to cook dinner, if they could
find any eggs or shells; wouldn't the captain
like to go along ashore—he would be per
lec*ly welcome to the best they had, and their
papers too!” Their hospitality was declined—
the dictum 'all right” was uttered, and, “give
too, my boys”—when away shot the Kiff on I
her return voyage to the steamer—name not
known. The wearied and half-starred party
breathed more freely after the interview, which
bad been rather tedious while waiting tor the re
sult. That evening they left the shore, having on
board a lew dozen of eggs, cakes of cumty-bread.
and a few clams, so small that they might pass
for muscles. They reached the Banks iu abotft
thirty-six hours having apoken one vessel and
obtained a supply of fresh water the day follow
ing their departnre from the Florida coaat, and
met with no other incident, though terribly per
plexed for want of food, until they reached Car
denas on the morning of the I lth—eight days—
where they were received by the people and the
authorities with great kindness, well fed, well re
freshed, and serenaded in the evening. The la
dies wished to entertain them in their hospitab e
homes, which waa. of necessity, declined tor the
want of suitable raiment. The Governor of Cat
denas famished Ihe party with transportation to
Havana, where they arrived on the morning of
the 12th, accompanied by an adjutant of the Span
ish army, and took up their quarters at the Hotel
Cubano. The adjutant reported his arrival with
his guests to Captain-Geueral Ilalce.who instruct
ed him to say to Geueral Breckinridge that he had
the " freedom of the city aud Cuba, for himself
and his friends, as long as they might wish to re
main: and when he was rested from his fatigue,
and at his own convenience, he would be happy
to see him."
Those who know the country through the
woods from Georgia to St. John's, (the public
road not available for their services except at
night,) and thence by the route they took to the
roast, will appreciate the troubles and dangers
encountered to get through safely besides the
difficulty of obtaining food and supplies for the
six persons. The boat in which the voyage was
performed did not admit ot mure than one sleeper
at a time, and the only navigator, Taylor Wood,
had to be always on the alert. In a squall at
night, he was thrown over by a sea, but having
the halyards in his hands, he managed to get on
board again withont any one being aware of his
brief absence. Before leaving the coaat they
had religious tervices, aud on reaching Cardenas,
before leaving their trail boat, they returned
thanks, with prayer and praise to the Divine Pro
vidence whereby they Lad been saved.
FAREWELL ADDRESS OF THE CONFEDER
ATE GOVERNOR OF LOUISIANA.
(From the Natchitoches Timet, Extra ]
Executive Office, )
Shreveport, La., June 2, 1865.}
To the People of Louiaiana.
Fellow-Citizens—I have tiionght it my duty
to address you a few words in parting from you,
perhaps foiever. My administration ss Governor
of Louisiana clorea this day. The war is over—
the contest is ended. The soldiers are disbanded
aud gone to their homes, and now there is in
l.nuisiana no GDnosition whatever to the Cnnsti.
tution and laws of the United .States. Until order
Bhall be established, and society, with all its sale
guards, folly restored, I would advire that you
form yourselves into companies and squads for
the purpose of protecting your families from
spoliation. A fpw bad men can do much mis
chief, and destroy much property.
Within a short while the United States authori
ties will no doubt send you an aimed force to any
part of the State where you may require it for
your protection. My countrymen, we have for
four long years waged a war which we deemed to
be jnat in the light of high heaven. We have not
been the best, the wisest, nor the bravest people
in the world, bat we hare suffered more, and
b^rne our suffering with greater fortitude, than
anv people on the face of God's green earth.—.
Sow let us show to the world that, as we hsve
ruugbt like men, like men we can make peace.
Let there be no acts of violence, no intemperate
language, but with manly dignity submit to the
inevitable course of events. Neither let there be
any repining after lost property. Let there be
no erixination or recrimination—no murmur. It
will do no good, but may do much harm. You
who, like myself, hsve lost all (and how many
there are), must begin life anew. Let us not talk
}f despair, nor whine about our misfortunes but
with strong arm* and stout hearts, adapt our
•elves to the circumstances which surround ns
It now rests upon the United estates authorities
to make yon once more a contented, prosperous
and happy people. They can, within live years,
restore Louisians to its original wealth and proe
perity, and heal the terrible wounds that have
been inflicted upon her, ao great are our recupe- ,
rative energies; so rich is our soil; so great are
the resources of onr State. Oar rulera nave the
power to dry the monrners' tears, to make glad .
[he hearts of the poor widow and orpbMS—to
rause the past, in a great measure, to In- fbrgot
.cu, and to make yonr devastated lands to “ bios
tom like the rose." If my voice coold be heard
rod heeded at Washington, I would sayr “ Spare
this distracted land, oh, spare this afflicted people,
n the name of bleeding humanity, they have suf
fered enough." Bat, my countrymen, this can
tot be; I am one of the proscribed. I must go
nto exile. I have etood by you, fought for you,
rod staid with you up to the very last moment,
and now leave yon with a heavy heart. The
high trust with which you bavSf®*^^^
this day returned. I leave me 1,1
with clem bands, and with tHcon*LGoTWnor
having done mydnty. All the office^ Pnde(>f
aod all employed in iu various depart
rendered their final accounts and mader
complete eettlemenu. I thank them fortod
uniform kindness to me, and their patriotic Vir
tion to the several duties assigned them. v
These accounts are In the hands of CoL Johk
M. Nandidge. 1 invite the closeet scrutiny not
only to these papers, but to all my acta aa Go
vernor of Louisiana. My State stores and die
pensaries and manufactoiies have all been con
ducted in the most successful manner. None can
tell the vast amount of good they have done, not
ouly to you, but to the people of Teias, Arkan
sas and Missouri. Fellow citizens, in the darkest
hour of my life, i do not come before yon ae an
old man broken down by the storms of state, nor
do I come to plead for mercy at the hands of
those whom I have fought for four long years.—
No, no; i come in the pride and vigor of mac
hood. unconqnered and unsubdued. I have noth
ing to regret. 1 look back with mournful plea
sure at my public career, now about to close.—
As a citizen, as a soldier, as a statesman, I have
done my duty. The soldier's family, the widow
and the orphan, the sick and the wounded, the
poor and the needy, have all had my especial care,
while the wants ot the aoldier and the citizen
have not been forgonei. I have protected the
people from the encroachments of military
power, and have never permitted a bale of cotton
in the State to be seized or Impressed. It Is
partly in remembrance of these acts that you
have always given me your entire confidence.—
But few in authority have ever had so msuy evi
deuces of affection and regard ae you have so
often shown me.
Refugees, return to your homes. Repair, Im
prove, and plant. Go to work with a hearty good
will, and let your actions show that you are able
and willing to adapt yourselves to the new order
of things. We want no Venice here, where the
denizens of an unhappy State shall ever medi
tate, with moody brow, and plot the overthrow of
the Government, and where all shall be dark and
dreary, cold and suspicious. But rather let con
fidence be restored. If required let each and
every one go forward cbeerlnlly, and take the
oath of allegiance to that country in which they '
expect in future to live, and then.pursue their
respective avocations with redoubted energy, ae
pood, true and substantial citizens. I go into
exile, not as did the ancient Roman, to lead back
foreign armies against my ustive land, but rather
to avoid persecution and the crown of martyr
dom. I go to seek repose for my shattered limb.
It is my prayer to God that this country may be
blessed with a permanent peace, and that real
prosperity, general happiness, and lasting con
tentment may unite all who have elected to live
under the flag of a common country. If possible,
forget the past. Look forward to tne future.
Act with candor and discretion, and yon will live
to bless him who, in parting, gave you this last
advice.
And now what shall I say, in parting, to my
fair countrywomen ! Ladies of Louisiana, I bow
to you with tears of grateful affection. Vou have
always responded most promptly and cheerfully
to the calls of patriotism and <lnty. Ton have
clothed the soldiers, nursed the sick and wounded
cheered up the faint hearted and smoothed the
dying pillow of the warrior-patriot. God bless
you' God bless you I can never forget you. Iu
uie lauu ui me exne i »ua,i rumemoer you with
feelings of gratitude too deep lor utterance.
My countrymen. I bid vou adieu. Farewell'
Sometimes think of him who has sacridced all for
you. Perhaps in better days, when tha atorm of
passion and prejadicethall Lave passed away, we
may meet again. I may then be permitted to re
turn, to mingle with my friendi, to take them bv
the hand, and “forget ray own griefs to be hap
py with yon.” Ifthia ahould be denied me, I
humbly trust we may all meet in Heaven at last
to part no more.
