No. 13. /
Tlie Department of the South having bees
placed within the sphere of this command, and
it being highly desirable that an uniform policy
prevail touching commerce and intercourse with
the 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 be
permitted or undertaken until the national au
thority is established to an 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 no
ncssf.ry wants of the army, 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.
11. Trado stores will be permitted at Beaufort,
Hilton Head, Savannah, Fernr.ndina. St. Augus
tine and Jacksonville, in all the > rticles of l‘ix)d
and clothing, groceries, ladies and childen goods
generally, and articles uot contraband of war.
HI. To trade is a privilege, and no person
will be allowed to buy and s»JI for profit unless
he be a citizen of 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 mav
I'ty ther exact as a condition, that the trader shaft
himself engage to serve, in some military ea
puciiy, toVid in the defence of the place.
IV. Persons desiring to trade will apply to
the commanding officer of the Post and obtain
Ills written consent, specifying the kind, nature
and extoritof the trade, and when he requires
importations from northern cities lm will in like
manner apply for his r. Kvn r. The commanding
officer of the Post may appoint some good officer
to supervise these matters, who will frequently
inspect the steres, and when there is not suffi
cient competition will fix the prices of sale.—
These stores wi 11 in like manner be subject to
tiie supervision of the Commanding General of
the Department of the South bv himself or -as
inspector General. ,
V. Jn order that, purchases may be made with
economy. the eWnmandfng officer of each Post
will make reports of his action in regard to
trade, with the names of traders, amounts of
goods Vlesiml for rode, <fcc., to the commanding
general of the department, who will, in like
hmanner, make full reports to the Secretary ot
the United States Treasury, to the end that* be
may instruct tlie collectors of ports from which
shipments are expected as to the necessary per
mits and clearances. It being utterly impracti
cable tha + a general commanding military oper
ations sli'ulu give his personal attention to such
matters, it is desirable that as much power as
possible should be delegated to Post command
ers. atid they should be held to the strictest ac
count that no trade is prrmitted injurious to t-fie
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 lie 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 the Treasury Department will
receive and weigh the same, and pay for it tlie
price fixed in the ssh section of the Act of Con
gress, approved July 2, l*t>4, viz: three-fourths
.the value of cotton as quoted in the New York
market; and the Secretary of the Treasury is
hereby requested to make appointments ot
agents to carry out the provisions of said act at
the posts of Hilton Head, Savannah, Femandi
na and Jacksonville.
VII. 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 r 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 bo
changed without his order; and when other
troops, commanded by a senior, are added or ar
rive, the command of the post will aot change,
but the additional troops will be encamped near
by and act according to special Instructions.
