No. 6. )
The General Commanding announces to the
troops composing the Military Division of the
Mississippi that he has received from the Presi
dent of the United States and from Lieutenant
General Grant, letters conveying the ! r high sense
and appreciation of he campaign just closed, re
sulting in the capture of Savannah and the de
feat of Hood’s army in Tennessee.
In order that all may understand the import
ance of events, it is proper to revert to the situa
tion of affairs in September last. We held At
lanta, a city of little value to us, but so impor
tant to the enemy that Mr. Davis, the head of
the rebellious faction in the South, visited the
army near Palmetto, and commanded it to re
gain it, as well as to rnin'and destroy us by a
series of measures which he thought would be
effectual. That army by a rapid march gained
our railroad at Big Shanty, 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 wero not thus to be led away by him,
and preferred to lead and control events our
selves. Generals Thomas and Schofield, com
manding Departments in our rear, returned to
their posts and prepared to decoy General Hood
into their meshes, whilst we came on to com
plete the original journey. We quietly and de
liberately destroyed Atlanta and all the railroads
which the enemy had used to carry on war
against us, occupied his State Capital, and then
captured his commercial capital, which had been
so 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 and expected
news that our comrades in Tennessee had also
fulfilled nobly and well their part, had decoyed
General Hood to Nashville, and then turned on
him, defeating his army thoroughly, capturing
nearly all his artillery, great numbers of prison
ers, and were still pursuing the fragments dowu
into Alabama. So complete a success in milita
ry operations, extending over half a contingent,is
an achievement that entitles it to a place in the
military history of the world. The armies serv
ing in Georgia and Tennessee, as well as the lo
cal garrisons of Decatur, Bridgeport, Chattanoo
ga, and Murfreesboro, are alike entitled to the
common honors, and each regiment may in
scribe on its colors at pleasure the words “Sa
vannah’’ or “Nashville.’’
The General-in Chief embraces in the same
general success the operations of the cavalry
column under Generals Stoneman asd Burbridge,
and Gfllem, that penetrates into South-west Vir
ginia and paralized the efforts of the enemy to
disturb the peace and safety of East Tennessee.
Instead of being put on the defensive, we have
at ail points assumed the bold offensive, ana
completely thwarted the designs of the enemies
of our country. By order of
Major General W. T. SHERMAN.

Special Field Orders,>
No. 13. /
The Department, of the South having been
placed within the sphere of this command, and
it being highly desirable that an uniform policy
prevail touching commerce and intercourse with
tne inhabitants of the South, the following gen
eral rules and principles will be adhered to un
less modified by law or the orders of the War
I. Commerce with foreign nations cannot lie
permitted or undertaken until the national au
thority is established to au extent that will give
the necessary courts and officers to control and
manage such matters. Trade will be confined to
a mere barter and sale proportioned to the ne
nessary wants of the armv, and of the inhabi
tants dependant on it for the necessities of life,
and even that trade must be kept subject to strict
military control or surveillance.
„ J*- Tr a( *j Btorps ho permitted at Beaufort,
Hilton Head. Savannah, Fernandina, St. Augus
te and Jacksonville, in all the articles of food
and clothing groceries ladies and c hilden jjoods
generally, and articles not contraband of war.
To trade is a privilege, and no person
will be a.lowed to buy and sell for profit unless
he be a citizen or the United States, and sub
scribe to any legal oath or obligation that is or
may be prescribed by law; and at points threat
ened by an enemy, the officer commanding may
further exact as a condition, that the trader shall
himself engage to serve, iu some military ca
pacity, to aid in the defence of the place.
IV. Persons desiring to trade will apply to
the commanding officer of the Post and obtain
his written consent, specifying the kind, nature
and extent of the trade, and when he requires
importations from northern cities he will in like
manner apply for his permit. The commanding
officer of the Post may appoint some good officer
to supervise these matters, who will frequently
inspect the stores, and w r hen there is not suffi
cient competition will fix the prices of sale.—
These stores will in like manner be subject to
the supervision of the Commanding General of
the Department of the South by himself or an
V. In order that purchases may be 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, <fcc., to the commanding
general of the department, who will, in like
manner, make full reports to the Secretary of
the United 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 lha a general commanding military oper
ations should give his personal attention to such
matters, it fe desirable that as mnch power m
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 cotton will be restricted absolutely
to the United States Treasury agents, and no
title in cotton or bill of sale will be respected
until after the cotton is sold at New York—
Country people having small lots of cotton are
permitted to bring the same in to be exchanged
for food and clothing for their families. The
Quartermaster will set aside a store or ware
house, to which each wagon bearing cotton will,
after entering the military lines, proceed direct,
where an agent of thffti’reasury Department will
receive and weigh tiweyame, and pay for it the
price fixed in the Bth section of the Act, of Con
gress, approved July 2, 1804, viz: three-fourths
the value of cotton as quoted in the Now York
market; and the Secretary of the Treasury is
hereby requested to make appointments of
agents to carry ortt the provisions of said act at
the posts of Hilton Head, Savannah, Fernandi
na and Jacksonville.
VTI. In order that the duties hereby imposed
on commanding officers of Posts may not be
neglected or slighted by the changes incident to
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, not to
changed withont bis 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 be encamped near
by and act according to special instructions.
