Whereon, By an aet of Congress, ap
proved March 3, 18(55, there was cdtab
lished in the War Department a Bureau of

bel States, or from any district of country
witbili the territory embraced in the oper
ations of the army, under such rules and
regulations as may be prescribed by the
head of the bureau and approved by the
President; and whereas, it appears that the
management of abandoned lands, and sub
jects relating to refugees and freedmen, as
aforesaid, have been, and still are, by or
ders based on military exigencies, or leg
islation based ou previous statutes, partly
n the hands of military officers disoonnec
ed with 8$id bureau, and partly in charge
1'officers of the Treasury Department; it
s therefore Ordered, That all officers of
he Treasury Department, all military of
cers, and all others in the service of the

Redemption of Mutilated Bank Kote*.
The following important circular has
been issued by the Treasury Department :
T ri: as un v D epartment, |
Office of the Comptroller of Currency,
Washington, D. C.
The following suggestions are offered
relative to the redemption of mutilated
circulating notes of national banks, and
their return to this office :
First—The notes arc to be redeemed by
the bank* by which they are respectively
issued, and should not be returned to this
office in sums less than five hundred dol
lars, or in even multiples of that amount.
Second—Mutilated notes which have
been torn or defaced will lie received, when
presented by the batik that isstued theui, i
provided all the fragments are returned
» , 6 . -
and the engraving or signatures are not
• hi far obliterated that it, cannot be deter
mined by what bank the. notes were issued.
Third—FragmetitK should be redeemed
hy banks in full when accompanied by an
itffidavit stating tho case and manner of
mutilation, and that the missiug part of!
the note is totally destroyed The good i
character uf the affiant should aW> be fully !
vouched for by the officcr before whom the
affidavit is taken.
These affidavits must be forwarded to
this office, with the fragments to which
they relate, in order that the banks pre
senting such parts of notes may obtain
credit for the same.
Exceptional cases may occur in which
no affidavit enn be obtained, and wh.trono
reasonable doubts can vxini iu regard to
the entire destruction or irreparable dam- i
age to missing portions of notes—as by j
tiro acids, etc.—where evidence of identity |
i, ample ky lb. »t o„ or both
officers, or title or locality ot the bank,
and the denomination of the note—where
tbe integrity of the bill-holder is unexcep
tionable, aud where uo question could
arise in regard to a fraudulent or improper
use of missing parts ; in such
IiiCUt. _
Fourth—When no satisfaction can be
obtained in regard to the "üssing parts
and a possibility exists that any improper
use can be made of tbe same, it is recom
„„ded «,«. proponio».««!.. .»If b.
allowed, estimating this by comparison ot
judicious discrimination must necessarily
be exercised by the officers of tbe banks.
it is, however, advised that such notes
be received at their full face value, a per
fect note given therefor, a reeord being
preserved of the fact, to be sent to this of
fice with the mutilated note when returned
for redemption by the bank, in which case
full credit will be allowed in this depart
tho propoition returned to tho missing
parts. A record should be kept of the
amount allowed in all stich instances, and
a voucher of the same rendered to this of
fice, when the mutilated note or notes shall
be returned for redemption.

I extend to you my hèarlfelt congratu
lations on your being restored to the pro
tection of the flag of our country, tbe sym
bol of law, order and freedom, and whiob
now waves in majestic power over an un
divided nation. Our once wealthy and
fertile State, now bankrupt and desolate
from the ravages of intostipo war resumes
lier natural relations (which have been
temporarily disrupted) within tbeglorious
Union of theStates, united by the bonds of
universal freedom and tie* thatCau ncvor
be dissevered. It is not my purpase to
rake up the ashes of the past, by inquiring
who has erred and who has not erred in
the foarfnl struggle tbe nation has just
passed thrpngb. Whatever may have been
the causes or the outbreak, and however
bitter may havo been the feelings engen
dered in tbe hearU of some, it is better
that all such matters be buried outoftiight
forever- It is not the past, but the pres
ent and future we havo to, deal wîth.
Great and responsible duties reet upon ev
ery citizen at this crisis, to manfully go to
work and assist in the re-establishment of
civil government. In that connection it is
a moHt cheering sign to see 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 obedience t,o
tbe Government, and glad again to enjoy
itsbenlfioent rule. You, my friends and
fellow-citizens, for I esteem it a privilege
to call you so,must follow in the footsteps
of so gootj an example. You must go to
work to organize civil government in your
rospectivK Parishes. Sheriffs, Kôcorder»,
Clerks of Courts and Police Jurors will
have to be appointed provisionally, until
elections can be hold to fill these offices,
as provided by law. You must, confer
among yourselves, and select meu of in
tegrity and capacity to fill these positions.
1 will act on your recommendations by
appointing the persons named by you, if
they are men of proper character, aad
have taken the ô&ïh prescribed in the R e
fcident's Proclamation of the âth of De
cember, lgtJS, or that, of the 29th of May,
This will be pre-requisite in all cades,
the original or certified copy of which oath
must be transmitted with the application
tor appointment. It is also my intention
to organiso the Judiciary throughout the
State by appointing provisionally Judges
of the District Courts and District Attor
neys as soon as practicable. Tbe former
class of officers are made appointive by the
Executive, under the new constitution, for
a term of six years, and 1 invite recom
mendations from yor. us to who shall fill
those offices, as also District Attorneys.
I cannot urge upon you too strongly the
importance of your acting promptly and
with unanimity in tho matters herein
brought to your notice. If you neglect to
avail yourselves of the opportunity offered
you I shall be compiled to make appoint
iuents to offica for your section, from the
best information in ray possession, and
you 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
o IB cor s to open the polls, an election for
Governor and othor State officer«, accord
ing to the new constitution, will takeplace
at the same time.
While the population of that portion of
the State whieh has been so fortunate as to
enjoy the protection of the strong arm of
the "General Government, sooner than
other sections,(and for which they are not
entitled to any merit of their own 1 in or
tlor to hasten the restoration of civil gov
ernment in the State, havo 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 lo
participate in the making of the fundamen
tal, as well as all other laws.
In conclusion, I assure you that no one
is more anxious to have the whole State
represented in all genornl elections, and
particularly lor the ollice of Governor,
than myself. J. M adison W ells,
Governor ol Louisiana.

General Orders No. 24.
Great and «udden changes in the condition of
anv das'- of people are always productive of
suffering,*and the transition of the blacks from a
etate of iiavcry to freedom c*..not fail to cause
temporary Buffering t'> all classes. Already this
is being manifested by the ufgroen leaving their
homes and setting out en masse, for the military
pouts, aad with no definite purpose, except t°
leave the scene of their former bondage.
The result of this state of things, if allowed,
would be—
1st. The los» of the crops and the «utire ruin of
the agricultural interests in this part of the
8 tat«.
2d. Untold suffering, starvation and misery
among the blacks themselves.
Without attempting, therefore, to regulate all
the various interests arising out of this question,
and which pertain properly to the i'reedman'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 is therefore ordered that all
persona heretofore held as slaves remain for the
presont with their former masters, and by their
labor secure the crops of the present season. The
only place where they can obtain a living for
themselves and their families is in the field,
where they have been accustomed to work If
found wandering about the country, or gathering
at military posts, they wil' be arrestou and pun
ished, and all transits and private steamboats
running on Red River are prohibited from carry
ing this class of people except upon a written
pass, which will be given only in exceptional
cases if necessarv lor them to leave home or
visit "any of the military posts they will be fur
nished with a pass by their employer t» prevent
their arrest as vagrants. But while it is found
necessary during Lhe present unsettled state of
the country to make these orders re'atlve to the
blacks, the planters are reminded that 'he mat
ter depends largely on them, and that only by
fair treatment ef the haads can they hope to ma
ture and harvest their crops and carry on their
plantations. ,
Definite contracts must be made with the ne
groes, which will be binding for til» balance of
the present season.
Planters who endeavor to da this m good faith
will be assisted in all proper ways, and It will do
much towards restoring quiet and confidence.
