A B right and R ising I ntellect.
If, affords us unfeigned pleasure to j notice the prominent stand which our j young Baton Rouge friend, A lex. D alsheimer , has taken in New Or leans, as an orator and member of the legal profession. Few young men of his age, have attained by one bold leap as it were, a positiou so enviable. Our city may well be proud of him, seeing that he pos sesses talents of so high an order and knows so well how to apply them. On a late occasion of laying the corner-stone for a new synagogue in New Orleans, styled the "Gates of, 1 rayer," Mr. D alsheimer was près ent by appointment to lend éclat to the ceremonies by Iiis eloquence. The papers of that city make special mention of his happy effort—the Times speaking of it as follows : Then came the great feature of the occasion, the orator, Mr. A lex, D al SHEIMEK . He drew a distiuc-■ tion between the state of the country I . j î j a ! past ana present, and «bowed the ! predilections of the Israelites to in augurate at all times the best aud highest sentiments of morality, love and religiorç. Their motives for pre serving intact their mysterious unity and brotherhood was the conscious ness of an inevitable destiny, marked out for them by a thousand prece dents, and by the unbroken chain of events, as set forth in their won derful history. The mission of the Israelites upon earth is to prove to mankind the ultimate reward of unwavering faith in the Al= mighty. He pointed out the differ ent periods in which Israelites had ranked their representatives among the mightiest and honored of earth, and said that "Israel's past." was the proudest legacy that Israelites could claim. We could wish that space would permit us to give the oration in length, or even detail, as it was one of the greatest we ever heard on such, or even auy occasion. Mr. D alsheimer is an orator of no small abilities, and his oration was appre ciated by frequent outbursts of well merited applause. Bouquet after bou quet was showered upon him, and we almost envied the rising popu larity which we are sure yesterday's labors will acquire for him. On the whole, our Jewish fellow citizens may congratulate themselves upon the great occasion of the laying the corner-stone of the "Gates of Prayer." T he J ackson R ailroad .—The promised speedy re-opening of this great road throughout its whole ex tent has given much satisfaction to our community. The mission ot the President, Col. Shackelford, to this city has been liberally responded to, and the forces necessary to rebuild the bridges and make other neces sary repaire have gone forward. Our money men, however, must not rest content with well doing; in these times we must all put our shoulders to the wheel and do all we can. Fur ther contributions, even to the extent of our means, must be made to put our great works of internal improve ments in order again, and these we must make cheerfully. They are for the benefit of our city and other neighboring commercial communities and we must not grow weaiy or do anything gradgiugly. Already we are in receipt of considerable cotton by the Great Northern R<rad, and we expect more daily. And then will it not, be » happy return to the good days of old to have a through con- . nectiou with all the "North and West? ;V. O. picayune. G es.

Avoyelles, Natchitoches, Sabine, Caddo, Ouachita, DeSoto, Rapides, Union, Jackson, Caldwell, Catahoula, Claiborne, Boisier, Bienville and Winn : I extend to you my heartfelt conjfratn lations on your being restored to the pro tection of the flag of oar country, the sym bol of law, order and freedom, and which now wavtib in njajoatic power over an un divided nation. Onr once wealthy and fertile State, now bankrupt aud desolate from the ravages of intestine war resumes her natural relation« (wbich have been temporarily disrupted ) within the glorious Union of the States, united by the bonds of universal freedom and ties that can never be dissevered. It is not my purpose to ralce up the ashes of the past, by inquiring who has erred and who has not erred in the fearful struggle thc nation has just passed throngh. Whatever may have been the causes of the outbreak, and however bitter may have been the feelings engen dered in the hearts of some, it is better that all such matters be buried out of sight forever. It is not the past, but tho pres ent and future we have to deal with. Great and responsible duties rest upon ev ery citizen at this crisis, to manfully go to work and assist in the re-establisbinent of civil government. In thatoonnection itia a most cheering sign to soe the spirit of submission to the laws, and willingness to acquiesce in the result, manifested by those so recently engaged in hostility to the Government. Even the soldiers return to their homes wiser and better men, frankly owning to the failure of their experiment, and all expressing a desire to atone for the errors of the past by cheerful obodience to the Government, and glad again to enjoy its benificent rule. You, my friendB and fellow-citizens, for 1 esteem it a privilege to call you so,must follow in the footsteps of so good an example. You must go to work to organize civil government in your respective Parishes. Sheriffs, Kecorders, Clerks of Courts and Police Jurors will hsve tobe appointed provisionally, nntil •lections can be held to fill these offices, as provided by law. You must confer among yourselves, and select men of in tegrity and capacity to fill these positions. I will act on your recommendations by appointing the persons named by you, if tney are men of proper character, and have taken the oath prescribed in the lire aident'« Proclamation of the Sth of De cember, 1863, or that of the 29th of May, 1864. This will be pre-requisite in all cases, the original or certified copy of which oath must be transmitted with tho application for appointment. It is also my intention to organize the Judiciary throughout the State by appointing provisionally Judges of the District Courts and District Attor neys as soon &a practicable. The former class of officers are made appointive by the Executive, under the new constitution, for a term of six years, and I invite recom mendations from you bb to who shall fill those offices, as alao District Attorneys. I cannot urge upon you too strongly the importance of your acting promptly and with unanimity in the matters heroin brought to your notice. If you neglect to avail yourselves of the opportunity offered you I shall be compelled to make appoint ments to office for your section, from the best information in my possession, and yon cannot blame me if they are not ac ceptable to you. Important elections will bo held this fall. Members of Congress and a Legislature will have to be elected, and if each Parish is provided with proper officers to open the polls, an election for Governor and other State officers, accord ing to the new constitution, will take place at. the same time. While the population of that portion of tho State which has been so fortunate as to enjoy the protection of the strong arm of tho "General Government, sooner than other sections,(and for which they are not entitled to any merit of their own ) in or der to hasten the restoration of civil gov ernment in the State, have adopted a new constitution and elected a Legislature which has passed laws, yet I feel author ized to say that it was with no intention of forestalling or denying your rights to participate in the making ol the fundamen tal, as well as all other laws. In conclusion, 1 assure you that no one is more anxious to have the whole State represented in all general elections, and particularly for the office of Governor, than myself. J.

Great and sodden changes in the condition of anv class of people are aiway» productive of suffering, and the transition of the blacks from a etat« of slavery to freedom caanot fail to cause temporary suffering to all clasies. Already this is being manifested by the negroes leaving their home» and setting out en manse, for the military post», aad with no detinite purpose, except to ieuve the scene of their former bondage. The result of this »täte of things, if allowed, would be— 1st. The los» of the crop» and th* entire ruin of the agricultural interests in thi* part of the Stat«. 2d. Untold suffering, starvation and missry among the blacks themselves. Without attempting, therefore, to regulate all the varions interests arising out of this question, and which pertain properly to the Fteedman's Bureau, the Major General Commanding deems it his duty to make such rules as in his opinion will best prevent suffering and restore quiet at the present time. It in therefore ordered that all persons heretofore held as slaves remain for the present with their former masters, and by their lab'T secure the crop« of the present »eaeon. The only place where they can obtain a living for themselves and their families is in the field, wjiere they have bean accustomed to work If found wandering about the country, or gathering ing this class of people except upon a written pass, which will be given only in exceptional castr. If neeewary lor them to leave home or visit any of the militaty posts they will be fur ni»bed with a pas» by theit employer t# prevent their arrest a< yagrants. But while it is found necessary during the present unsettled state of the country to make these orders re ative to tlje blacks, the planters are reminded that he mat ter depends isrrely on thun, and that only by fair treatment of the haads can they hope to ma ture and harvest their cro^s aud carry on their plantations. infinite contracts must be made with the ne gro« g, which will be binding for the balance of the present season. Planters who endeavor to do tbia in good faith will be assisted in all proper ways, arid it will do much toward» rest' rin« quiet and confidence. By Command of Mbjjr General H s» bon : WM. H.
