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. L. M. Dayton, Major and Assistant Adjutant General. llhapq’s Mil. Drv, of the Mississippi. In the Field, Savannah, Ga., Jan. 15, 1865, 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 Department: 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 inspector General. 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.
