wants of the freed people was recently enacted,
making villd, in all respects, tba marriage of col
ored persons, who bad, at the date of tbe passaft
of tha aot, agreed to occupy tbe relation to each
other of husband and wife, and were living to
gather as such, whether the rite of marriage had
been celebrated botween them or not i bat as no
such law has yet been enacted In this District,
or in Maryland, all penons living together as hus
band and wife, and whosi mirriige has not been
duly celebrated, should hare tbe rites properly
performed without delay, and receive from tbe per
son solemnising tho marriage a oertlfioate of thi
A superintendent of mirriige fortblsdlitrictbss
been ippolnled by this bureau, who will be fur
nished with two blink forms of certificates, one for
such as have heretofore been living as husband ind
wife, but have not before hid tho mirriige duly
celebntod, and mother for those who are Just en
tering upon tbe state of matrimony
There Is no longer suffiolent excuse for any parlies
to lira as husband and wife, without being properly
married and tha freed people may by a right un
derstanding and publio sentiment In this matter,
do much to correct existing evil and vices.
Preachers of colored eh u robes and all persons in
this district, laboring In behalf of tbe freed men, are
requested to oi-operate In giving Initruotlons upon
this Important subject
The officers and agents of this bureau will take
measures to publish this circular to all the freed
people in their rerpecltro district!, and explain tbo
benefits of having their mirriagei lawful y cile
Wiled, as well as the evil conseiueLoes and erlmi

And In order that further action may be tnken If
necessary, to Insure reform among the freed people,
In regird to thi marriage relation, ond render the

D. S. Walker, In reply to a communication
received by him from the Iter. A. M. ltobb,
Superintendent of School, for Irecdracu,
under appointment or hu Excellency.
It may as well bo stated, for the informa
tion of your readers, that Mr. Ilobbs, who is
a FcnniyWanian, mado his appearance in
Florida last year, with the troops by which
Tallahassee was garrisoned soon after the
surrender of Joo Johnston, lto was chaplain
of one of the " colored ' regiments, with
which, for their sins, Providence visited theeo
people. For a while he wm provost marshal
of this place, and subsequently became con
nected with the Frccdmcn's Bureau as one
of its officers and agents. Ho was especially
associated with, and interested in, tho efforts
of tho Bureau to promote education antong
the freed people. By his teal and activity,
exhibited In prosecuting this philanthropic
work, ho won the confidence of a number of
the most intelligent and liberal minded of our
citizens, who heartily seconded his endeavors
and encouraged his efforts.
During tho session of our late Legislature,
tho chaplain drafted, for their consideration,
a bill for the organization and support, under
State authority, of a system of common
school education for colored children. Tho
measure, coming from an abolitionist, the
chaplain of a colored regiment, and an agent
of the Frcedmen s Bureau, of course en
countered somo prejudice, ovinj to il source;
jet, aided by tho strong recommendation of
tho Governor and somo outsido intluenco
from citizens residing in or near Tallahassee,
it become a law. Under tho proi isions of the
act, tho appointment of a superintendent
was In the hands of tho Governor, and ho
gave it to Mr. Hobbs.
Your readers can mako their ovfn com
ments on these facts, and say how they war
rant and confirm tho reports so widely dis
seminated by tho Committee of Fifteen and
through tho radical journals of a presently
existing and all pervading hostility and bit
terness on tho part of tho Southern people
towards Northern men and the African race

his office, principally to seek assistance from

jcalled forth tho following letter :
KxiccTirt Orric,
TATlABliatt, fit. , sprll 7
Sir: Your letter of tho 12th March was
received on tho 31st ult. ou incloso your
testimony before tho Itoconstruction Com
mittee which Is as follows :
" Itcv. L. M. Ilobbs testifies, that in Flo
rida the feeling against tho Goernment was
bitter, much moro so than it was three or
four months ago There was a time when
the people seemed very much disposed to do
anything that tho Government would require
of them 1 hey aro now quite bitter, and ea)
what they would not have dared say three
months ago Ihcy talk treason on the
streets without any concealment 'I ho great
majority of them do so, tho majority of the
lower classes jv icw lmciugini uuzens
whom ho regards as honorable gentlemen
deplore the expression of such opinion, but
they are very much in thd minority, and can
have but little influence in tho affairs of the
State gotcrnment. The change in tone is
because of the leniency maul fisted by the
present adminiltratton
You then proceeded to say that you do
not know what I may think of this testimony ,
that you hopo you havo not offended mo nor
lost my confluence, and ask if )0U have
"thrown mo lat into tno lire. Ac.
After much anxious deliberation, in an
swer 1 have to say that your statement be
fore tho committee has given mo moro pain
than any tiling else that has occurred since
I havo been In tho executive office In fre
quent conversations with myself and many
others you have led mo to believe that our
opinions wero directly tho opposito of tnose
you expressed beforo tho committee You
Lad frequently spoken to mo of the kindness
with which you had been overywhero re
ceived in this State, and of the general dis
position manifested by the people to aid in
tho great and good work in which you and I
wero engaged of educating the colored peo
ple You had also spoken frequcntl) of the
irood order and nuict which nrcvaiUd in the
country, and of tho universal disposition of
tne people to auapi incmseives to ti n ncn
order of things, and become again good and
orderly citizens of the United bttiU s OnU
a few das beforo vouleft hero for tho North
)outoldmo you would hao occusion to
make known Ihiso Bentlments in public ad
dresses It was understood between us that
your addresses would bo published and have
a good ctTett In disabusing tho Northern
mind us to tho true condition of tho South
and that you would send them to me, and
would hue them republished hero w ith a
view tognc our pcoplo a good opinion of
Northern men.
After all this, tho first I heard from ton
after you leit here wus tho aboo nciled tes
timony beforo tho committee I have cer
tainly no right to complain of jour giving
expression to any opinion honestly mtir
taincd either before tho committee or else
where, but I fill a deeper rtgnt than I can
express that you should hao imposed upon
mo and abused my confidence by expressing
one set of opinions to me, when, in tact, you
enlcrtained another You know how ear
mstly 1 detiro ' to bring about an era of
good fcoluig and frati riiil) ," and to uuiko
tho people ot tne aouin mi that tnose oi
tho North aro their biethrcn, not only in
name, but in fact Tonsotho languago of
tho l'residcnt, If I know ray own heart, and
o cry passion which enters it, it Is my deslro
to restore tho blessings of the Union and tlo
up and heal every bleeding wound which Iioa
been caused by tho fratricidal war." I had
chosen you as an instrument to assist me in
this great worK, uy appointing you to too
responsible oflico of superintendent of schools
for freedincn in this State. Youhaio disap
pointed me; your course is well calculated to
tear open and inako tho wounds, which were
fast healing, bleed afresh. Hereafter when
cur I shall speak of appointing to a State
oflico a Northern man, I shall bo warned to
remember the case of tho Ilev. Mr. Ilobbs.
Hereafter when gentlemen from the North
appear among us, ready to loin with us in
any good work, no matter what their declo.
rations of friendship may be, you havo put
it Into tho power of somo to say, "Take care,
and let experience put a clog upon our con
fidence." As I havo before stated. I do not denv
your right to entertain or eipress any opin
ion you please. My complaint is, tha( you
havo expressed one opinion to mo and an
other to the committee.
There Is another thinir I comnlain nf.whlch
is, that you, according to your testimony,
havo known that a majority of the people of
this Stato have "talked treason unon the
streets without concealment," and yet you
havo not reported any Instance, either to the
Major General commanding here, or to my
self. You held a commission from me. You
knew that I had sworn to snonort tho Con
stitution of tho United States. You knew it
was my duty, as it is my fixed purpose, to
havo all traitors punished. You knew that
It was very prejudicial to me and tho State
of which you were an officer, to have people
"talk treason on tho streets without conceal
ment," and yet, instead of reportinir this to
mo, your report was, "all Is well," till y ou got
neioro mo coramuiee-m Washington, and
then you reported, "all is wrong.'" If you
did not havo confidence la me to believe that
I would punish treason, you ought not to
havo held a commission under me. If yon
had not confidence in me, you ought at least
to have had it in the Major General com
manding this department. You must have
known that it would injure both him and my
self to permit anyone to talk treason, whether
in secret or openly. I will remark, that it Is
singular that a majority of the pcoplo should
hat e talked treason beforo you, whilo not a
word of tho kind has ever reached me, though
I am in daily communication with tho people
from every portion of the State. I havo heard
much complaint among the pcoplo that the
Stato is not allowed its representation in
Congress; much desiro expressed to bo rcc-
ognizcu as limy in tno union, much regret
that tho President's policy does not prevail,
but not ono w ord havo I heard from any per
son whatever, that was calculated or intended
to incite a war against the Government or to
destroy tho Union
To do candid with j ou, I must say I do
not believe that you have heard more than 1
have, for tho desiro of the people to bo in
the Union, and not out of it, is so universal and
notorious that I cannot believe any other
has been expressed. That you have heard
our people express bitter complaints against
thoso who aro known hero as " northern dis
uniomsts," I havo no douht ; that those com
plaints hove grown in bitterness tho last
three or four months Is also true. But after
our people hae manifested their loyalty and
desiro to return to tho Union, by taking the
oath prescribed by the President, " to sup
port tho Constitution of tho United States
ond the union of tho States thereunder, and
to abide by and faithfully support all laws
and proclamations which havo been mado
during tho existing rebellion with reference
to tho emancipation of slaves," after their
convention has annulled the ordinance of se
cession, repudiated all debts contracted by
the Stato since tho dato of secession, declared
all tho slates free, opened to them all the
courts, admitted them as witnesses in all
cases in which they aro interested, and de
clared that they " shall enjoy tho rights of
person and property without distinction of
color," and adopted the amendment to the
Constitution of the United States prohibit
ing slavery cterywhere in the Union I say,
after tho peoplo have done all this, and every
thing else they understood the Government
to desire them to do, that any portion of
them, much less a majority, should talk trea
son either openly orsecrctly, is too much for
mycrcdulit. It u singular that jou should
hato interpreted tho solicitude and impa
tienco of tho pconlo to be recognized as fill I
in tho Union intu manifestations of treason.
I hero Is no treason in I lorida I will guar
antee that if the President should call upon
her for oluuteers to sustain tho Union. Flor
ida would furnish as many troops as any
other State, in nronortlon to her nonulation
I complain of you ulso for saying that the
sentiments of tho pcoplo of this State have
changed for tho worse ' because of the lenien
cy manifested by tho present Administra
tion " I think y ou havo dono the peoplo of
this Stato great injustice in describing them
as ingrates who havo abused the kindness of
the President I feel satisfied that tiny duly
ipprcciatc the magnanimous courso of the
President, and that upon all suitable occa
sions they will proo themselves w orthy of it
I think, also, that you hate dono the Pres

to recall tho affections of the pcoplo to the

Tho use of chloroform as an ancsthetlo was
lately discussed In the Paris Academy of
Science, in a paper by Dr. Petrcqnin, of
Lyons. Ho favors tho use or ether, and
shows that tho former inconveniences attend
ing its uso have been obviated. Dr. Pctrc-
quin says :
I ncso inconveniences were removed by
tho etherizing bag. Invented bv a nhvalclan
of Lyons, and alio by the Improved methods
ucvueu ior ooiammg etner penecuy pure.
At present tho operation of etherizing pro
ceeds in a most satisfactory manner. Tho
patient lies In a horizontal posture, with his
head slightly raised in order to prevent his
swallowing any jCther ; about twenty-fivo
grammes of ether aro floured at once on tho
sponges of tho bag: tho patient is directed
to inholo copiously j tho orifice of the bag is
then closed, and tho dose of ether doubled.
Tho patient's eyes oro carefully bandaged,
and the profoundest silenco Is obRrvedi in
this way anesthesia Is promptly obtained
without agitation.
"It Is easy to prevent accidents by closely
observing tho circulation and breathing. In

should be stopped and air administered. As
to tho breathing. It is at first subdued, bnt
soon becomes complete. If It were to be
come difficult or interrupted, the apparatus
should bo removed and tho fan used. In this
way there has not been a single death at
Lyons by etherization for tho last 14 years,
whde, according to Dr. Vclpeau's own show
ing, the uso of chloroform is never unaccom
panied by danger."
To this poper Dr. Vclneau replied that
there had indeed been a few deaths by chlo
roform, bnt it was not quite certain that there
had been none by ether. At all events, he,
Dr. Yclpcau, had for tho lost 15 years been
administering chloroform to several thousand
patients, and had net cr seen any die from
that cause.

A southern paper discusses in the follow

Tho southern peoplo bear with perfect
equanimity tho sacrifices which its slavery

Thet do not even regret its loss. They
would not restore it to-morrow If they could.
They have stout hearts and strong arms, and
are able ond not ashamed to work for them
selves. They feel no heart-burnings or ani
