aid for savannah
&-<oltitiens of the Stew fork Produce
Tlie following are the resolutions
adopted by the N. Y. Produce Exchange
necessarily omitted yesterday:
Whereas, The members of the New
York Produce Exchange' hare learned,
by the proceedings of the first public
demonstration of the people of Savannah
since its reoccupation by the Federal au
thority, convened to give expression to
their sentiments and views, and that
they ‘‘accept-the situation,” and in the
language of the President of the United
States, seek peace by laying down their
arms and submitting to the national au
thority under the Constitution; and
l Whereas, The Mayor of said city, in
calling said meeting to order and desig
nating its objects under the new condi
tion of public affairs there, stated “that
said city contains twenty thousand hq
habitants, without food, without sue ]
and without any remunerating industria
pursuits, and without any place of ref
uge be it therefore unanimously
Resolved, Fkst. That the action of the
citizens of Savannah, Georgia, in again
recognizing the authority of the Federal
Governmeut, comes emphatically to us
as glad tidings}; and we heartily rejoice
that their patriotic course must soon re
store that city to those cordial business,
commercial and political relations with
the City of New York which marked
their former intercourse previous to the
breaking out of the existing rebellion.
Resolved, Second, That the members
•f the New York Produce Exchange, in
common with their fellow citizens, have
learned with the profoundest sorrow of
the suffering necessities of many of the
citizens of Savannah, and in order to
manifest our sympathy and contribute
as far as possible to their relief, we rec
ommend the appointment of a Commit
tee of Seventeen to co-operate with the
committee already appointed by the
Chamber of Commerce on behalf of the
sufferers of Savannah, so that the entire
commercial community of the city of
New York may extend that aid which
their own munificence and the distress
of the sufferers demand.
Resolved, Third, That said committee
be authorized to take such action as shall
i* the most prompt, practical and effi
cient manner secure the objects desired,
and they are further authorized to de
pute one of their own numbers, or some
member of the Produce Exchange, to
jointly accompany any person designated
kj the Chamber of Commerce, to Savan
nah, to deliver the articles forwarded to
the Mayor of said city, for distribution in
accordance with such regulations as the
Military commander there may adopt.
Resolved, further, That the President
of the Produce Exchange be requested
to unite with the President of the Cham
ber of Commerce in requesting the Presi
dent of the United States to give the re
quisite authority for the admission into
the port of Savannah of whatever articles
ot tood and clothing, not contraband of
war, may be gratuitously furnished and
forwarded by the ship already generous
ly offered bv the citizens ot New York
to the suffering people of Savannah.

Tup Fall of Fort Fishbr.— The de
mnad for our paper containing the ac
count of the fall of Fort Fisner, yester
nay, showed the intense interest in this
great victory. Our counting room was
thronged for hours, and our steam press
could scarcely print fast enough to sup
ply the demand there, while some of ou.i
agents waited patiently tiH evening be
fore they could be served.

No. 64. f t
refugees and roust. deserters.
Whenever refugees from within the Rebel
lines, or deserters from the Rebel armies, pre
sent. themselves at U. S. Camps or Military
Posts, they will be immediately examined by the
Provost Marshal with a view to determine their
character, and their motive in giving themselves
up. If it appear that they are honest in their in
tention of forever deserting the Rebel cause, care
will be taken to explain to them that they will
not be forced to serve in the U. S. Army against
the Rebels, nor be kept in confinement. The
President’s Proclamation of December 8, 1863,
will be read to them, and if they so desire, the
oath therein prescribed will be administered to
them. They will then be questioned as to
whether they desire employment from the Uni
ted States; and if so, such arrangements as may
be expedient will be made by the several Army
Commanders for employing them on Govern
ment works within their commands. Those who
come to the Army of the Potomac will be for
warded to the Military Governor of the District
of Columbia, at Washington, with reports in
their cases, that employment may be given them
if desired: or, if not, that they may be sent as far
North as Philadelphia.
