I. The islands from Charleston, South,
4he abandoned rice fields along the rivers
for thirty miles back from the sea, and
the country bordering the St. Johns riv
er. Florida, are reserved and set apart
for the settlement of the negroes now
ir ade free by the acts of war and the
Proclamation of the President of the
H. At Beaufort, Hilton Head, Savan
nah, Fcrnandina, St. Augustine, and
Jacksonville, the blacks nmy remain in
their chosen or accustomed vocations;
hut on the islands, and in the spttle
inents hereafter to be established, no
white person whatever, unless military
officers and soldiers detailed for duty,
will be permitted to reside; and the sole
and exclusive management of affairs will
he left to the freed people themselves,
subject only to the United States mili
tary authority and the acts of Congress
8y the laws of war, and orders of tho
President of the United States, the negro
is free and must be dealt with as such.
He cannot be subjected to conscription
or forced military service, save by the
written orders of the highest military
authority of the Department, under such
i-egulations as the President or Congress
may prescribe, domestic servants, black
smiths, carpenters, or other mechanics
will be free to select their own work and
residence, but the young and able-bodied
aegroes must be encouraged to enlist as
soldiers in the* service of the United
♦States, to contribute their share towards
maintaining their own freedom and se
miring their rights as citizens of the
United States. Negroes so enlisted will
tie organized into companies, battalions
and regiments under the orders of the
United States military authorities, and
wUljbe paid, fed and clothed according
to law. The bounties paid on enlistment
may, with the consent of the recruit, go
to assist his family and settlement in
procuring agricultural implements, seed,
tools, boat3, clothing and other articles
accessary for their livelihood.
111. Vs henever three respectable ne
groes, heads of fa rallies, shall desire to
♦settle on land, and shall have selected
for that purpose an island or a locality
clearly defined, within the limits above
designated, the Inspector of Settlements
and Plantation* will himself or by such
subordinate officer as he may appoint,
give them a license to settle such island
or district, and afford them such assist
ance as he can to enable them to estab
lish a peacable agricultural settlement.
The three parties named will subdivide
the land, under the supervision of the
Inspector, among themselves, and such
others as may choose to settle near them,
30 that each family shall have a plot of
tot more than (40) forty acres of tillable
ground, and when it borders on some
water channel, with not more than eight
hundred feet front, in the possession of
which land the military authorities will
afford them protection until such time as
they can protect themselves, or until
Congress shall regulate their title. The
Quartermaster may, on the requisition of
the Inspector of Settlements and Planta
tions, place at the disposal of the Inspec
tor one or more of the captured steamers,
to ply between the settlements and one
or more of the commercial points here
tofore named in orders, to afford the st t
ders the opportunity to supply their
necessary wants and to sell the products
of their land and labor.
IV. Whenever a negro has enlisted in
the military service of the United States,
he may locate his family in anv one of
the settlements at pleasure, and acquire
a homestead and all other rights and
Privileges of a settler as though present,
V person. In like manner negroes may
jettle their families and engage on board
<he gunboats, or in fishing, or in the
navigation of the inland waters, without
losing any claim to laud or other advan
tages derived from this system. But no
one, unless absent on Government ser
vice, will be entiled to claim any rigid to
land or property in any settlement, by
virtue of those orders.
V « In order to carrv out this system of
settlement, a General Officer will be de
tailed as Inspector of Settlements and
Plantations, whose *dut.y it shall be to
visit the settlements, to regulate their
police and general management, and
who wiil furnish personally to each head
of a family, subject to the approval of
the President of the United States, a
possessory title in writing, giving as near
as possible the description of boundaries,
and who shall adjust all claims or con
flicts that may arise under the same,
same General Officer will also be charged
with the enlistment and organization of
the negro recruits, and protecting their
interests while so absent trora their set
tlements : and will be governed by. the
Rules and Regulations prescribed by the
War Department for such purpose.
VI. Brigadier General R. Saxon is
hereby appointed Inspector of Settle
ments and plantations, and will at once
enter on the performance of his duties.
No change is intended or desired in the
Settlement now on Beaufort Island, nor
will any rights to property heretofore
acquired be effected thereby.

can be operated by any known power, such as
Steam, Water, Horse or Hand. Iu using Horse
power but one horse is required, the Press being
so mechanically constructed on a well-kuown
principle that the IST power increases in a greater
ratio titan the increasing resistance,
The advantages of this Press over all others
are as follows, viz; ,
Ist. It can press 20 per cent more material m
a given space.
2d. It can do the work in 33 per cent.less time.
3d. It requires 50 per cent, less driving power.
4th. It turns out the best shaped bale lor hand
ling or rolling.

liable to get out of order.

Four men and one horse can bale 1- tons of
