The following order of the President of the United States in relation to transfer of abandoned lauds, funds and property set apart for the ttse of Freedmen, to the Bureau of Refugees, Freedmen and Aban doned Lands, is published for the infor mation and guidance of all concerned : E XECUTIVE MANGOS, \ Washington, D. C., .Juno 12, 1865. / Whereat, By an act of Congress, ap proved March 3, 1865, there was estab lished in tho War Department a Bureau of Refugees, Freedmen and Abandoned Lands And to which, in accordance with the said act of Congress, is committed the super vision and management of all abandoned lauds, aud the control of all subjects re lating to refugees; and freedmen from re bel Statos, or frotn any district of country within the territory embraced in the oper ations of the army, under such rules and regulations as may be prescribed by the bend of the bureau and approved by the President; aud whereas, it appears that tho management of abandoned lands, and sub jects relatiug to refugees andfreedmon, as aforesaid, have been, and still are, by or ders based on military exigencies, or leg islation based on previous statutes, partly in the hand^of military officers disconnec ted with «aid bureau, and partly in charge of officers of tiie Treasury Department ; it is therefore Ordered, That all officers of tho Treasury Department, all military of ficers, and all others in the service of the United States, turn over to the authorized officers of said bureau all abandoned lands and property contemplated in said act of Congress, approved March 3, 1865, estab lishing the Bureau of Refugees, Freedmen and Abandoned Lands, that'may now be under or within their control.

The following important circular has been issued by the Treasury Department : ® Treasury Department, ) Office of the Oomptroller of Currency, V Washington, D. C. j 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 are to be redeemed by the banks 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 be received, when presented by the bank that issued them, provided all the fragments are returned and the engraving or signatures are not so far obliterated that it cannot be deter mined by what bank the notes were issued. Third—Fragments should be redeemed by banks in full when accompanied by an affidavit stating the case and manner of mutilation, and that the missing part, of the note is totally destroyed. The good 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 crédit for the same. Exceptional case« may occur in which no affidavit can be obtained, and where no reasonable doubts can exist in regard to the entire destruction or irreparable dam aget0 mjasing portions of notes—as by Are, acids, etc—where evidence of identity is ample by the signature of one or both _ „ , , , officers, or title or locality of the bank, arid the denomination of the note—where the integrity of the bill-holder is unexcep tionable, aud where no question could ar ise in regard to a fraudulent or improper use of missing parte; in such instances judicious discrimination must necessarily be exercised by the officers of the banks. It is, however, advised that such notes be received at their full face value, a per fect note given therefor, a record 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 ment. Fourth—When no satisfaction can be obtained in regard to the missing parts, and a possibility exists that any improper use can be made of the same, it is recom mended that a proportionate value only be ». allowed, estimating this by comparison of the proportion returned to the missing p ar t s A record should be kept of the amount allowed in all such instances, and amount allowed in all such instances, and a Toucher of the same rendered to this of fice, when the mutilated note or notes shall be returned for redemption.
