Ht'LUxj’as Mi.u Dvv. m t-u- In the Field, Savannah- Ga., -Tan. 8, t>T*vaiAL Pfflia Oanrah i No. 6. k . The General Comm inffinz announces to the | troops composing the Military Division of the j Mississippi that he has received from the Pros’- > of the United States and from Lieutenant ; (Mjieral Grant, letters conveying their high sense i jJoR appreciation of he campaign just closed, re- j gnsjnr in the capture of Savannah and the de- ; featof Hood’s army in Tennessee. In order thac all may understand the import ance of events, it Is proper to revert to the situa- j iion of affairs in September last. We held At-’ iiuHa» a city of little value to us, but so impor- j taiit to the enemy that Mr. Davis, the head ofj the rebellions faction in the South, visited the i army near Palmetto, and commanded it to re gain it, as well as to ruin’and destroy us by a aeries of measures which he thought would be effectual. That army by a rapid march gauicd our railroad at Big Sh inty, and afterwards about Dalton. We pursued it. but it moved so rapidly that we could not overtake it, and General Hood led his army successfully far over towards Mis sissippi, in hopes to decoy us out of Georgia.— But we were not thins to be led »wav by him, and preferred to lead and control events our selves. Generals Thomas and Schofield, com manding Departments in our rear, returned to their poets and prepared to decoy General Hood [ into their meshes, whilst we came ou to com- ! nlete the original journey. We quietly and de- ! liberate!}’ destroyed Atlanta and all the railroads ! which the e'nemv hail used to carry on war against ns, occupied his State Capital, and then captured his commercial capital, which had been ; eo strongly fortified from the sea as to defy ap proach from that quarter, Almost at the moment of our victorious entry into Savannah, came the welcome an l expected news that our comrades in Tennessee had also fulfilled nobly and well their part had decoyed General Hood to Nashville, and then turned ou him, defeating his army thoroughly, capturing nearly all his artillery, great numbers of ers, and were still pursuing the fragments dmvu into Alabama. So complete a success in milita ry operations, extending over half a continent,is aa achievement that entitles it to a place in the mllitarv history of the world The armies serv ing in Georgia and Tennessee, as well as the lo- 1 cal garrisons of Decatur, Bridgeport. Chattanoo ga, and Murfreesboro, are alike entitled to the common honors, sad each regiment mar in scribe on its colors at pleasure the words' “Sa vannah” or ‘•Nashville.* The General-in Chief embraces m the same general success the operations of the cavalry column under Generals Stoneraan and Burbridge, and Gillem. that peuetrates into Smith-west Vir ginia and parailz’ed the efforts of the enemy to disturb the peace and safety of East Tennessee. Instead of being pat on the defensive, we have at all points assumed the bold offensive, and completely thwarted the designs of the enemies •cf our country. By order of Major General W. T. SHERMAN. L. M. Dayton’, » Major and Assistant Adjutant General. HF,\i*y* Mil. Div, o;*’ rne Mussisshti, In the Field. Savannah. Ga., Jan. 15, ISm. Spec i \r. Pi f i,r> Ve? .■ vekh. > No. 13. i . The Department of the South having been .placed within the sphere of this command, and it being highly desirable that an uniform poliev prevail touching commerce and intercourse with the inhabitants of .the Soufh, the following gen eral rules and principles will be adhered to un less modified by law or the orders of the War Department: T. Commerce with foreign nations cannot be •permitted or uudc.takeu umd the national au thority is cstabl:slieu to an extent that wi il give the necessity courts an 1 officers to control and manage such nutters. Trade will b<- confined to a more barter avid sole proportioned to the ne nessary wants of the army. and of the inhabi tants depeudan* on it for the necessities of life, and even that trade rnnst be kept subic- t to strict military control or surveillance. 11. Trade scores will be permitted at Beaufort. Hilton Head. Savannah, Fernanda)-i. St. Augus tine and Jacksonville, ip all the articles of food and clothing, groceries, ladies and cliilden "oods -generally, and articles not contraband of war. /H; To trade is a privilege, and no person will be allowed to buy and >ell for nrofft unless he be a citizen of the United States, ami sub •ftcnbe to any legal o»tth or obligation that is or may be prescribed by law: ana at points threat ened bv an enemy, the officer commanding may farther exact as a condition, that the trader snail kinase!! engage to serve, in some niUitarv ca pacity, to aid in the defence of the place. TV. Persons desiring to trade will apply lo the commanding officer of the Post and obtain his written consent, specifying the kind, nature nun extent oi the trade, and when he requires importation** front northern cities he will in like manner apply for his The commanding ■officer ot the Post may appoint some good officer to supervise these matters, who will frequently inspect the stores, and when there is not suffi cient competition will fix the prices of sale.— These stores w ill in ijke manner be subject to the supervision of the Commanding General of "the Department of the South by himself or an Inspector General. V. In order that purchases maybe made with economy, the commanding officer of each Post will make reports of his action in regard to trade, with the names of traders, amounts of goods desired for sale, Ac., to the commanding general of the department, who will, in like manner, make full reports to the Secretary of thedluited States Treasury, to the end that he may instruct the collectors of ports from which shipments are expected as to the necessary per mits and clearances. It being utterly impracti cable that a general commanding military oper ations should give his personal attention to such matters, it is desirable that as much power as possible should be delegated to Post command ers, and they should be held to the strictest ac count that no trade is permitted injurious to the military interests .of the United ‘States. VI. Sales of c >tWu will restricted absolutely to the UP*ted States Treasury agents, and no f title in cotton or bill e>! sale will be respected \ until after the cotton is sold at New York Country people having small kits of cotton are 1 permitted to bring the in to be exchanged ! for food and clothing foe their families. The 1 Quartermaster will set aside a store or warn- ! house, :o which each wagon bearing cotton will, after entering the military lines, proceed direct, • where an agent of the Treasury Department will j receive and weigh the same, and pav for it the ] price fixed in the Bth section of the Act of Con- ! gress, approved July 2, 1804. viz: three-fourths 1 the value of Cotton a* quoted in the New York market; and the Secretary of the Treasury is hereby requested to make appointments' ot agents to carfv out the provisions ot' said act at ■ the posts of Hilton Head. Savaunah. Fernandi- t ixa sad Jacksonville. VII. In order that the duties hereby imposed 1 on commanding officers of Posts may not be i neglected or slighted by the changes incident to i rank and changes of troops, the Commanding | General of the Department of the South will ap- ; point a special officer to command at each of said Posts, with a small garrison, aot to be changed without his order; and when other troops, commanded by a senior, are added or ar rive, the command of' the post will not change, but the additional troops will he encamped near by ami act. according to special instructions.
