Tile K.-Ks Sleeting o?* Saturday-.
Agreeable to the suggestions of sun?
dry citizens, und in accordance with
tie views of- Gen. Yan Wyek, a mass
meeting ot freedmen, to which plan"
;o:s were invited, wfts held ou Satur?
na ;", afc Academy Grove. The purpose
was to give a good plain sensible*talk,
to correct erroneous ideas and false
noti.jifs, growing out of the new rela?
tion of aftairs, and, i-f possible, by this
bi j talk, this gomn-;. 1 explanation, to
obviate the necessity of the thousand
daily and hourly little ixphmatiuus
and sefetleinents, arising from thc false
.uotii?na whicji have crept, into tile
beads of thc negro, and kite miscon?
ception, in a few ca?-es, by tho planter,
ni to his precut relations. .We are
pleased to say that the General's talk
waa all, und perhaps more, than was
expected. Iii' is a goo< 1 speaker, clear,
forcible, and is perfectly at, home on
.the .stump. Although a difficult mat?
ter to bring hims??f down to, lind touch
the dui" andc-xsU^udiugs of, the mass
around him, yet ha happily succeeded
iu doing so, und in fixing their atten?
tion, While in tko plainest manner,
yet positive and emphatic, all was ex?
plained und dwelt upon until the
.tallest mind mn:.t have been im dress?
ed. The spe.tinv grew, eloquent? in
(expatiating upou thc great boon which
had beeii conferred npou them, who,
without effort of their own, in a
moment as it were, stood in the broad
sunlight of freedom; but he warned
them not io abuse it, and to bo worthy'
of the bom, for otherwise better lind
it. not come. Each of the common
abuses and errors were touched upon
and .explained, and tin: proper course
pointed out. Idling, vagrancy, going
offfrbni t!ie plantation without per?
mission, laying- down the hoe. refusals
to spin by the womon, and to drive
thc carriage by the. men, impudent
language or jaw, neglect in allowing
proper and customary respect to for
. mer master-;, in fact.to all perseus,
thieving, lying, drinking, ?uni many
'oilier offences, were shown io be
?wrong, and all of which must be cor?
seted. Many, lie said, had the. false
idea that land and stack were to be
divided among them, but they must
?t'xi that out .of their heads'at once;
that by labor, industry and economy
ahn:; can they ever hope to become
possessors of property; 'they- must
work, economise, .save, and buy
. these tilings aa the poor white man
?loos. By working faithfully now, by
obedience, kind and respectful deport-1
meit, they would have- tile love and :
. coimdence of former masters, and bc
able to get work when their contracts
Wore out, and those too must be
sacredly observed They are ignorant,
but have minds and hearts capable of
cultivate n. and must study anil learn,
not only the whole alphabet of free?
dom, but the A, il, (J of everything
el-;e. Those who wons dissatisfied
with their present homes and employ-,
to i's, must lu' patient and enduring,
and wait till January, and if then tiny
could better themselves to'do so, but
now to remain cloie at home and
work; freedom did not mean idleness.
Their old masters still loved them,
and would keep them employed if
faithful, otherwise there would be
nothing to pr< vent their being turned
ont homeless wanderers. The planter
was shown a few errors likely to be
committed, and which he trusted time
j nd good sense would soften down
that ia the ead good feeling and kind?
liness would be thc sentiments of both
'.lasses. It is impossible to go over
tie whola ground covered by the Gen?
eral's able talk-suffice it, it was good,
