CHARLESTON, S. C, TUESDAY, DECEMBER 12, 1865. PRICE FIVE CENTS. BY TELEGRAPH. JHcHSiXfic of Governor On. [SPECIAL TO THE NKW8.] Columuia, December 11.?In llio Legislature, today, Messogo No. 2 of his Excellency Governor Onn was re celvcd. He conununicates the Report of tho Committeo "ii the Military Academy and other documents; alBotho proxiORal of Col. Guilds to purchase the canal around the foils of Broad and Congareo Rivers. Ho also for wards the correspondence between Governor PEnnvand Secretory BEWABD of "JOth November. Mr. Sf.wabd ac knowledges the receipt of a telegram informing him of tho impossibility of repudiating the war debt, as the Convention was dissolveil; and says that while tho ob jections urgpd are of vorious kinds, the President cannot refrnln from awaiting with interest an official expression of opinion on that subject from tho Legislature. The Fenians In Trouble. New Yoiik, December 10.?Tho Fenians aro troubled, .nud have deposed their President and Treasurer for .malfeasance. From "Wnshlngton. Washington, December 10.?Major-Gcncral Looan was a long time yesterday in consultation with tho Sec retary of State, on tho subject of the Mexican mis sion. Late information fromGalvcston mention tho re-cstab llshment of tho office of provost marshal in that de partment. THE STATE LEGISLATURE. [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 Senate. 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 purpose. 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 | flour. 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 details. The Stay Law agoin wiU come nndor consideration to morrow, and what changes may be made it is now im. possible to state. Tho Appropriation BiU will probably "be reported, and when that has been read members wiU begin to think that they can see the beginning of tho end. ? - 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 lets, shook bis sword at the enemy with his left hand. .Just at this moment an order come sharp and clear from the Federal Uno, "Cease firing at that officer I" Such s ?poetado of ardent valor drew s spontaneous shout of applause." Thk State of Mississippi, with a white population not excoodlng 350,000, had sixty-three regiments in tho late war, which numbered about seventy-three thousand combatants. Of those_ -Died of disease.16,600 KiUed or died of wounds.13,000 Discharged, resigned and retired.10,000 Deserted or dropped.. , 11,000 Missing."... .... 360 Transferred to other commands...Y.Y.'.'..'.'.Y..'..'. t,600 Total loss from aU causes..69,860 JBalsnoe accounted for.18,760 Thus it appears that more than one person in five iras In service. Friends of tlic Frccdmcn. 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. Headquarters, Assistant Commissioner ) Bureau Refugees, Freedmen and Aban'ju Lands, [ Charleston, S. C, December 2, 1865. J [Circular.] 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 agreed upon. 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 Assistant Commissioner. 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 this business. They will also, to tbo full extent of their power, en force the faithful performance of tho conditions of these contracts. 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 Brevet Major-Oeneral B. 8AXTON, Assistant Commissioner. H. W. Smith, Abs. Adjutant-General. ?? [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 Charleston to E_lato Island, to wit: John's Island, James' Iahuid, Wadinalaw Island, and the adjacent main Und. AM ISLAND PLANTER. MHS. EDWARD II.
