By his Exce?ency JAMES L. ORR, Go?

INFORMATION has been communicated
to this Department, by thc Hon. William
H. Seward, Secretary^ of State, that the
President of the United States has relieved
the Hon. Benjamin F. Perry from thc fnr
I ther discharge of his duties as Provisional
Governor of the State, and has remitted
the "care and condition of the proper
affairs of tho State to the constitutional
authorities chosen by the people thereof."
This intelligence will bo highly gratify?
ing, as it is an important s te o in tho carly
restoration of the people to the enjoyment
of all their civil rights. It is the harbinger
of the re-establishment of those friendly
relation?, in every section of the Union,
which have been so long alienated and
In retiring from his position, Gevernoi
Perry carries with him thc thanks of tm
I people of South Carolina, for the wisdom
zeal, fidelity and ability with which bc die
charged the grave, delicate and importan
duties of his office.
Ir. entering upon thc duties of Constitu
ti'mal Governor, it is proper that I shook
declare the present status of thc State t<
the Executive Department of the Federa
Government, and to the military authori
ties acting under the instructions of tb
President; so that tho people, knowing
may yield prompt obodiencc to all lawfu
The order suspending the writ of habea
corpuvissned by the President, has no
beemmodified or revoked in this State, an
the/military authority is, therefore, f>*ra
mount in all such matters as they are>ii
ytructed to take jurisdiction of, and a
i such wiU be respected by all orderly an
The military claim jurisdiction in a
cases of disloyalty to the Government an
refractions of its laws; to preserve ordc
and discipline in and near their garrisoni
to adjudge and determine aU controvcrsit
in which freedmen "or freedmen and whiti
are engaged, including violations of Stal
laws by freedmen; in all cases of wrong c
injury done to its officers and soldiers; an
is an auxiliary in aiding Treasury agent
to recover United States property, and tl:
Freedmen's Bureau in supervising coi
tracts of labor with freedmen. Whenev?
a person, therefore, is arrested by militai
authority on either of the above ground
they have jurisdiction of the case, and a:
instructed not to obey any writ of tiai>e(
corpus for the release of such person.
I therefore advise and admonish ti
people of this State not to allow themselv
to bo inveigled or seduced by bad or mi
guided men into collisions with the mi
tary authorities, -if the order of an offic
is arbitrary, or tltc conduct of officer
private is illegal or oppressive, upon pr
per representations to the District Coi
mandera or to the distinguished Coi
mander of the Department, adequate ai
prompt redress will bc afforded and t

In all controversies between citizcr
arising ont of wrongs or injuries done

full forte, and tho courts will be open
henceforth on every circuit to adminisl
law and punish crime. The vicions, t
lawless and tire desperate will speedily

The colored people of this State, w
j have neither land nor capital, are carnes
j admonished to make contracts at once
: labor for the next year. They may
i assured thai the Government will not g

ments, nor will any food hereafter be f

Those who will not work will very soon
immersed in vice, crime and disgrace,
the colored people really desiro to elev
their raco and make themselves rcspec
hie, it can only be attained by sobriety,
dust ry, economy and honesty.
It ic tho duty of tho citizen, as it i
wise policy, to treat tho freedman w
kindness, humanity and justice, and
him to ameliorate and elevate his coi
tion. Under such a policy, a majority
them will labor patiently and faithfu
and the eye will be greeted everywl
