The final reiwt of Generals Steedmax
and Fullerton of the condition and
management of the Freed men's Bureau
cannot fail to elicit tlte serione atten
tion of the cotmtry. The conduct of
many of the Commissi otters and their em
ployees is such as to demand the most rigid
examination. Whilst the Government has
lost hundreds of thousand, if not millions,
by the loose and irresponsible manner' of
keeping account, it is plain that in tbe pecu
liar and arbitrary management of the freed
men's affair, tlie negroes have lost fully as
much more. Many of the agents, instead of
consulting the interests of the negrocx, have
set out to make fortunes fur themselves
jiartly by the ill-paid or unrequited labor of
the biaeks, or by fines imposed for delin
quencies If not in all its parts, at least to
a very great extent, the Bureau is found to
he very rotten. It requires all the drawers
he taken out and a careful and patient
fumigation. The sooner the better.
Vi'k know of no issue between tho people
of this city, the decision of which requires
a reeort to mob-law or violence. If there
be those who desire it on cither side, we arc
wire the mass of public sentiment is not with
them. The real fighting people of this
country on both sides of the late conflict
have had enough of that species of experi
ence. What is now most to be desired is
peace. The clearly defined rights of any
portion of the people should not
he wantonly trampled upon, and we
sincerely trust will not be. Our friends
of the late Confederacy have generally
borne themselves with a prudence and dig'
nity in keeping with their honor, their
elevation of character, and their sincerity of
iMiriKHC. Wc trust that thev will not be
swayed from the right lino of their good
judgment and firm Intent. A circle of two
hundred feet diameter would comfortably
hold all the mobocrats in this city and
county, if they were identified and set off at
this moment. They expect, doubtleos, to
increase their numbers by constant effort,
and they may succeed ultimately, if the sub
stantial reflecting men of all opinions do
not set their faces against it.
Judge Gaut, of this city, who presided
over the District Convention held on the
4th inst., in this ciiy, lias been assailed by
the Kadieal press for the utterance cf the
following remark. We quote from our re
port of August 5th:
" He said that those who came home from
the rebel army and took the amnesty oath,
or had been pardoned by the President, were
entitled toa)l the privileges and immunities
of an American citizen unuor the Constitu
tion, and were far more loyal, and were
better friciids to the Government than those
who were making thcmsclvos so conspicuous
in their efforts for the disfranchisement of
This statement in iti full import Judge
Gaitt avows, and is willing to defend. The
perversions to which it has been subjected
he does not propose to notice, further than
to give them a flat, unequivocal denial.
The first part of this assertion is a legal
fact which nobody but a Radical will dony ;
the second is an opinion, which docs credit
alike to Judge Gaut's head and heart.
Railroad Entkrprise. We learn ar
rangements have recently been entered into
between the Wilmington and Manchester
railroad, of North Carolina, and the South
Carolina railroad and the Georgia railroad,
by which through passenger trains will he
run daily between Wilmington, N. C, and
Atlanta, Ga. Passengers, baggage and mails
will be carried daily without being disturbed
or changed between these points. The most
luxurious sleeping cars, built expressly for
this line, will be in these trains. The cars
are both day and night cars. The passenger
need not change his place from Atlanta to
Wilmington, N.C., and has no trouble about
baggage or transfers; and further, has a most
luxurious bed to sleep on in the sleeping
ears. Throng h pans angora can get in those
cam at Angosta or any other point on the
route. The arrangement commenced on the
1th of August. Passengers going North and
taking this route, and also going up Chesa
peake Bay, do not lose any night's rest from
Atlanta to New York, and even to Boston.
Tin: Murfreesboro Monitor, of lost week,
charged Mr. Elliott, Representative of
Rutherford county, who voted for, the con
stitutional amendment, with having under
taken to raise a cavalry regiment for the
Confederate service in 1SG1. Mr. Elliott
denied it, nnd tho Mmiltr of yesterday
proves it by Dr. John Gaxnaway, whoso
reputation for voracity is amply sufficient to
settle the question.

Correspondence of the Unionlsnd American.
Newtort, East Trnnhssee, Aug. 2.
Through the kindness of a friend, a copy of
your paper reached me at this place, and t
assure you I was much pleased with the
conservatism and elevated tone that pervade
its col urns, as well as lite neatness and per
fection of its mechanical execution. It came
as a ray of light, and as the messenger of
peace and good will into a section enshroud
ed in the deepest gloom. The embers of the
late terrible contest are kept aglow, and the
shadow of war seems still to brood over us
like some liorriblc spectre evoked from the
regions of despair. The energies of the
jveople are benumbed, and they gloomily and
despondingly look to a future that seems to
promise nothing better than the present.
Some Unionmen are strenuous and persist
ent in keeping alive the hatred and bitter
ness engendered by the late war.
Chanty, generosity, and magnanimity,
peems not to be component parts of their
moral composition. Hatred, persecution,
and oppression of a fallen and helpless foe
are only congenial with their natures. In
the day that tried men's souls, such persons,
as a general thing, were not found on the
front, hauling for the "glorious Union"
or for a cause they now say was far dearer to
them than life. Show me a man that went
into the Federal army from principle and
as an honest patriot, and demeaned himself
as a brave soldier, and honest gentleman,
and I will show you a man, who is not now
hunting down " rebels." He is willing to
to fonret the mournful past, and treat as gen
tleman, those who met him on the field of
battle asuonest patriots, struggling heroically
for what they deemed right.

Two ex-rebels were tried on yesterday, on an
indictment, charging them with robbing a
Union man of his gun. The evidence ad
duced on behalf of the State showed that
the two men went to their neighbor's house
and told him that they had come after his
cun. Tho man told them where it was, and
they took it and left, not using a word of
insult, or manifesting tr.c least violence, or
molesting a single thing elso in the house.
This occurred in the early part of tho winter
1801, at which time there was what was
termed a rebellion in this county against the
Confederacy, which created intense exci e
The people had been ordered by the Gov-
ernor 01 tne Estate to uenver up tneir guns
for the public defence to an agent, and Capt.
Gorman and his company was ordered here
for carrying the law into effect. A collision
occurred, and many of the citizens rushed
to arms, A furor of excitement was up ; the
bouthcrn men took tho gups of Union men
under a general order, and many of them
were taken or given up. Under these cir
cumstance, and in the midst of this excite
ment, the two men before mentioned took
the gun, not for their own use or benefit, but
for the use of the U. b. A. They proposed
to adduce proof of this fact, but were denied
the privilege. Thcyprotod that they paid
the man full value for his gun. They also
proved a character without stain or blemish.
All felt that there would certainly be an ac
quittal, notwithstanding they were not per
mitted to prove that there ever existed a
Confederate authority. The jury retired
and soon returned a verdict of guilty and
five years' imprisonment in the penitentiary.
Southern men were Kcizcd with terror and
alarm; more deep, intense feeling I have
never seen manifested. All felt deeply for
the unfortunate men, who hau only done
that which was at that time in accord with
the general sentiment of Southern people.
I will venture that nine-tenths of both ar
mies committed deeds far more reprehensi
ble than this, and moro worthy to blast and
ruin their reputation and bring deep, incon
solable sorrow on their families. Alas 1 alas!
the drama now being enacted lias no parallel
in history. A eulogy upon the glorious
Union, bitter, withering, unsparing denun
ciations of rebels and traitor, is the kind of
speeches fulminated in the courts of justice,
when some poor, but honest rebel is being
tried for all that is dear to him in life. Stir
up against him all the deep prejudices en
gendered by tho war. No lawyer will or
dare not say a word in defense of the causes
which prompted him to bid adieu to home
and family, and go and stand for four long,
cheerless, dreadful years amid carnage and
Thousands of men arc so cruel-hearted,
so utterly devoid of all the gentle and ten

been brought in this court against " rebels,"
none of which have, as yet, been tried.

The New Orleans 2xiyr, of lat Mon

The rumors which have prevailed for the
past two or three days, concerning a general
uprising on the part of the black population
against the whites, created a great deal of
uneasiness. It would be folly on our part
to even attempt to give an outlino of all
these rumors, it is sufficient to state that they
were important enough to demand the seri
ous consideration of both the civil and mil
itary authorities. From every indication
and report, the proposed attack and massa
cre was expected to commence last night and
continue throughout to-day, so that another
bloody Monday might succeed tho one just
The Sabbath, however, was permitted to
pass off without any general disturbance,
and our citizens turned out as usual and en
gaged in all the recreation offered on this
day. Even- thing that run on wheels in the
shape of a railway car seemed to be crowded
from morning till night, and go where you
would, there was a constant jam. The day
paseed off pleasantly enough, and many are
thankful that they were not aroused from
their slumbers last night to suppress vio
lence and bloodshed.
But tho hour for " action " was not re
stricted to yesterday or last night, but may
liave been poetjoned - until to-night. We
have little apprehension, however, that such
a fiendish attempt will beundertaken by tho
blacks, even though it is rumored they are
still urged on by a number of the black
hearted hut white conventionists who have
been released on hail. Thwarted in their
mail schemes and exasperated to despera
tion, thev feel that they "have nothing to
lose, and everything to gain " by whatever
they may engage in. It is said several con
sol tat ions were had in the upper portion of
Jefferson City during the past weelc by the
few wlto were fortunate enough to escape
from the Mechanics' Institute, with no othor
injury to them than a dirty suit of clothes
(owing to the place they selected to conceal
themselves,) ami a big scare. What damn

were said to have been quite freely ex

to, and each received mortal wounds. Wc

respective favorites, when the shooting be

Except in one or two spots, the late
rain3 have been general throughout this
section. In consequence the crops promise
most abundantly. Wc have heard of some
farmers complaining of damage to wheat
from the rains, bnt these complaints are
confined to few, and where there are
grounds for them, we think the damage
scarcely appreciable. Others speak of
their tobacco Frcnching from too frequent
rains. But, altogether, from our own ob

though smaller than usual from the difficul

he has since resided. He was the head of a
very large family, all of whom, we believe,

in promulgating fidelity to the Union in a

effected by bayonet', confiscation and tlie

Northern people desire to treat us as bro
thers, and it is his desire to show that efforts
are now being made by the Southern people
for peace and restoration.
He reviews the sufferine. privations and
dangera endured by Southern people in bc-
nalt ot a cause they considered just and holy;
shows how sincerely the people have kept
faith with their renewed allegiance; has
been identified with Texas a quarter of a
century; has mingled with the people and
claims to be able to speak for them; a peo
ple who have won the respect and admira
tion of the world, for their chivalry, high
character and fortitude will not be
doubted by generous and brave spirits.
When they assert their loyalty and policy,
will be disclaimed by exact pursuance to all
classes of men whose political faith, religious
creed, race and color, it is a duty we owe
alike to ourselves and humanity to enact
laws that reserve the freed people the full
protection of all the rights of person and
properly, guaranteed them by our amended
constitution. The time is not far distant, in
my judgment, when the black people will
be convinced that their best friends are those
with whom thev have sported in youth, and
who have cared for them since infancy.

He followed the fortunes of the majority
of his fellow-citizens and shared their fate.
Those identified with him in opposition who
sustained the Government, he accords the
credit of pure and patriotic motives. The
most sacred duty is now for all to labor for
the restoration of peace and harmony ; that
our people desire these and are worthy of
restoration on just and liberal terms. He
appeals to the Legislature to co-operate with
him in the great work ; points them to tho
cares of Texas, her patriotic heroes and
statesmen, and urges unselfish devotion to
country, moderation and forbearance in an
enlarged character for those who differ with
us, appeals to reason and noble impulses and
not vituperation and abuse, which will pro
duce the great end we disire, invoking the
aid of Providence and trusting that He will
incline the hearts of the American people
