And be is in "a quandaiy;" for be can only strut and fume and bluster. A tew bayonets in Holly Springs, Vicksbnrg, Jackson, etc-, cannot make them work, cannot control the plantations. The sovereigns, his subjects, will do as they please. We ad vise them to pBy no attention to such a master as cannot feed thgm, and, if accessary, to leave his poor plantations, where there is no food. Tbe whole South is starved out. It is no place for sovereign to live, where there is nothing to eat or wear, and no money to buy any thing with. Let them go to the North, where there is a plenty of money and clothes and bread and jewels and fine watches and silver f poona. It is a better place to work, if they want to work, where there is good fat living, and plenty to pay thera with. Anc. if they don't want to work, it is a thousand nm.i nc'i .r iiiucrr i i u -1 where there is such abundance, and where all the finery comes from. This coun try is as poor as Job's -turkey, and its white peop'e are a lean as so many church mice. A man can't live in the drun'd place without work, anal it is the meanest place onder tbe son to teal or rob in. If we wanted to live either way, wa would go to Ohio or Illinois, where the whale earth is cov ered with potatoes, wheat and corn, fat cattle and hcjrs, or to New York, where Terr short window naa a cart,..aa 01 pearls and emeralds, ear-ringj,diamoBdr, breast-pies, trold watches, pistols, and bushels of siivcr and gold dollars, enough to cist? ce'a eyes water any day.

' ' At the close of tho war, cotton, hereto-foro-the great staple of the South, com mauded what was regnrded as an enor mous price, say from forty to sixty cents per pound, tlm result of which wbs to uso a largi amount of capital from the " . . . , . j,: r 1,11 III lJ IMJ I1I.V.UIVI4 ill viim J'. mi.vniu cotton.

In most of these cases, tbe laborer having no subsistence and no credit, the planters agreed to become responsible for the supplies necessary for the laborer and his family, the amount to be deducted from the share of the laborer when the crops were gathered. Jo consequence ot the dry weather and worms tbe crop of 1SG7 has not ex ceeded half of whnt was regarded as an avenign crop, ana that nas not com manded but one-half of tbe price ot tbe previous year, thus reducing the pro ceeds to one (onrth of what was antici pated by the plantersnd freelman as the proceeds of the year's labor. The result is the financial rnin of the planter and capitalist; and discontent to the la borer. In cases where laborers worked for stated wages there is but little complaint or discontt-nt on the part of the freedmen, remuneration having generally been re ceived by the laborer, either in money or supplies, or if not paid the claim can be easily established or adjudicated, and if the planter has the means tbe claim can be collected. Where the laborer has orkei for a share of the crop endless litigation has been the consequence. The laborer, being without means, has gen erally been furnished 'he neceaary sup plies bv the planter or on his security. On gathering tbe crop it has ia a majority of CBfm been ascertained that the share of the laborer does not ray his indebted ness fur supplies advanced, and instead of recoiling a dividend ha is in debt. J bis causes great discontent and a conviction, perhaps well founded in some instances, of alihone!y and false accounts on the rM of piantert; hot this cannot gen erally be the rae. Instances have oc curred where the planters have entirely a'uaadoocd lbe c re p to the laborers, los irg the.r time, tbe G cf their anipals and implement anil tha supplies ad vanced. .

There seems to bo n widespread belief, which is dilv increasing among the Treedmen, that the land in this Slate is to be divided and distributed amoug them, and in some sections of the State this illusion is nnsnmine a practical form by the treed men refusing to contract for tho next year, or to leave tbe premises they nave cultivated this year. It is to be lenred that this course, in duced by evil disposed advisers, may lead to collisions, tho extent and result of which it is diUicuIt to surmise. I receive almost daily petitions and memorials assorting tho existence of organized componics of freedmen, and asking tho presence and protection of I troops ; and aiinougn 1 am sansnna mat these representations are generally the result ot tear and exaggerated rumors, j'ot the existeuce of such organizations in Home evciiuim ui mo ou.lu io ucuniu.

In order to avoid as tar as possible bringing tbe races io collision with each other, I have advised that whenever prac ticable the jwjse summoned to assist in an arrest shall be of the same race as the person arrested. 1 am, Ueneral, very rcspecuuuy your obedient servant, Alvai C- Gillkm, Brevet Mojor General, Commissioner.
