DISTRIBUTION OF RATIONS.
It is with reluctance that we question the
• propriety and policy of any ot the arrange
ments adopted by those placed in military
authority over u?. We are satisfied that
they have a complex work on hand in pro
viding for the Police of the city, but a sug
gestion may not be unacceptable troui au
outsider, who, from personal observation has
witnessed the operation of a measure of evil
intiuence. We allude to the regulation pro
viding tor the gratuitous distribution of pro
visions among all classes, races and condi
W e are not about to argue this question
on its merits; we ate not about to question
the policy in the abstract,of a regulation that
provides for the needy and necessitous of
every class and condition of life unable to
make physical exertion lor their support, but
only as regards the application of the princi
ple. There are very many who question the
policy of Relief to the Poor, especially out
door relief, but in certain circumstances this
relief is indispensable; aud if there was an
exceptional case, Savannah would constitute
such a case while of every kind is
suspended and a general stagnation pre
We would address a few general consider
ations on the subject to those clothed with
authority in the premises. We are sure it
is not the design of those in authority to
aggravate the inconveniences of that relation
between the races in Savannah which war
has almost entirely reversed. The relation
between master aud slave no longer exists
that placed the time and services of the lat
ter at the uncontrolled command ot the for
mer. All are not only equal in the eyes of the
law, but in that which is equally valuable,
their labor and its remuneration. But there
is a limit in propriety to their social equality.
It would be the reversal of the law' of nature,
that the intelligent, the high-bred, those
brought up in luxury, should perform the
menial services ot life, and be forced to with
hold that education from their children,
which it is the policy of those who wish to
see the colored race instructed. That this is
the effect of the regulation in force has
come under our' ow r n personal observation.
We have seen parents compelled to keep
from school their offspring to perform house
hold drudgery, while colored children are
sent to school, from the sheer impossibility
of hiring servants. The source of the evil
being the distribution of rations to all alike—
the robust and physically incapable of labor,
—the halt, the lame and the blind, in com
mon with the healthy and vigorous; for
what inducements have those who are fed by
the public to work for wages, when they ar-e
able to subsist without physical exertion.
Tlie remedy for the evil is at hand. Let
there be a discrimination made in the distri
bution of rations between those who are able
and those unable to work, whether white or
colored. Let there be a scrutiny into the
circumstances of each. * * *
A Fact. —Gen. Robert E. Lee, in his sworn
testimony beforo a committee of the Rebel
Senate, Jan. 34th, 1865, says: The sentiment
of the army “is almost unanimous for Peace.
The men will fight longer if necessary, but.
they believe we cannot continue the war
through another campaign.”
FIRST PARADE OF* NEGRO TROOPS
. IN RICHMOND.
[From the Richmond Sentinel, March 23.]
The announcement in the morning papers
that two companies of negro troops would
parade in the afternoon, attracted a great
multitude of ladies, military men, civilians,
boys, children, nurses, negroes aud others, to
the square, between four and five o’clock
Yesterday, to witness the novel spectacle
The streets in the vicinity were also crowded
At half-past o’clock the battalion,
composed of three companies of while con
valescents, from the hospital camps Winder
and Jackson, and two companies ot negro
employes, who volunteeied for military ser
vice, marched down Main street, under the
command of Major Chambliss. A brass
band proceeded the battalion, playing
“Dixie’ and other patriotic airs. The side
walks were lined with spectators. Turning
up Governor street, the column marched to
the square. As they entered the square there
was a rush from all quarters towards the
gate and avenues leading thereto, everybody
seeming intent upon satisfying the prompt
ings of curiosity at, the earliest possible mo
ment. The boys, who regarded the whole
affair as sort of frolic, cheered and yelled
very furiously, and altogether the scene pre
sented was quite remarkable and almost lu
dicrous. The column filed to the right, halt
ed and faced towards the Capitol, the win
dows of which were tilled with ladies. After
the troops were rested they were reviewed
by several officers, and then put through the
manual of arms.
Baton Rouge, La., March 18.
Refugees are coming in every hour at all
the landings below Vicksburg, many ol
whom arc desetters. In appearance they arc
the same refugees of two years ago, with the
same old story of haying been always for the
Union, but fear that confederate bayonets
might lie used to draw off some ot their
patriotic blood, forced them to submit where
resistance would have been disastrously
foolish. While this is just about the stoiy
that would bo told by the most arrant traitor
in the South were he a suppliant lor Federal
favors, there can be no doubt that in many
cases it is true. However, it is generally
impossible to make distinction, and the treat
ment of all is uniform. This treatment,they
confess, is better than they expected, and,
they might add, much better than they de
[Special Correspondence of the Savannah Herald.]
Philadelphia, March 29, 1865.
Dear Herald: The shooting of Mrs. Ger
trude Hancock, by a corporal of the 186th
! Reg. Pa. Vols .is a sad affair. The lady re
■ sided at No. 315 Race street. The bullet was
intended for a deserter, named Squibb, who
escaped from the guard. Several persons
have been wounded in a similar manner in
Philadelphia, and the practice of shooting at
deserters in crowded thoroughfares of a city
is one fraught with too much danger to be
indiscriminately indulged in. Mrs. Hancock
died in a short time after receiving the wound,
which was in the abdomen. The question of
the civil power to prevent soldiers from firing
in the streets will come up in Court of Quar
ter Sessions. Mr. Knox applied on Saturday
for a writ of habeas corpus in the case of the
corporal who shot Mrs. Hancock. Judge
Ludlow stated that he desired the case to be
heard before a full bench.
Since the above occurrence, a boy, named
David F. Campbell, aged 13 years, was shot
under similar circumstances! The ball en
tered his right side, passed through the body,
and came out near the spinal column.
Campbell is the son of an officer of the trans
A ecidents. —Richard Gardiner, residing at
Twenty-sixth and ..ombard streets, was in
stantly killed on Saturday. He fell from his
cart, the wheels passing over him. Patrick
Daly, who fell from a wagon at Broad and
Catherine streets, died the same night at the
hospital. Hugh Boyd W’a9 badly scalded in
the face at Conway’s Candle Factory. John
Connell, clmiseman, fell from his box and
was badly cut and bruised on the face aud
bead. John Cqwen was badly scalded at
Wynpenuy’s Dye House in Manayunk. A.
F. Arnold had his baud cut off on Thurs
day at the Kensington Depot. He attempted
to get on the cars while in mption. Hannah
Calligan, on the same day, w’as seriously in-
jured by the falling of a brick from a chim
ney at Eleventh and Locust streets. The
funeral of the Whitfield family, victims of
the late fire in Ninth street, took place last
Friday. The Rev. Samuel Durborow offici
ated. The family consisted of George Whit
field, his wife and daughter. •
The annual report of the Inspectors of the
County Prison exhibits the following statis
tics for the year 1864: Number of commit
ments, 14,067; of which 8,093 were whits
males; 4,771 white females; 551 colored
males, and 652 colored females. 1,256 were
committed for intoxication; 1,534 for steal
ing ; 1,100 for vagrancy; 1,543 for assault
and battery ; 1,058 for abuse and threaten
ing; 714 for misdemeanors, and 24 for mur
der. The number remaining in prison Dec.
31, 1864, was 275—convicts, to hard labor,
134; all others, 141.
Several oil companies are advertising their
shares of stock at 25 cents each—par value
one dollar—a clear gain of 75 cents on each
share to those who can see it. We will wait
patiently, however, for Corry O’Lanus’com
pany to start, as we wish to invest our sur
plus funds in one of his kind, that we may
get the new hat held out as an inducement
to subscribers, for our present “ tile ’ is veiy
“seedy ” in appearance.
Our lectures during the past two weeks
have been w T ell worth attending. Horace
Greeley gave us “Self-made Men;” Hon. D.
Kelley “The War, and Rights of Humani
ty ;” Hon. John W. Forney “Our Country,
its Men and Measures;” the Very Rev. Dr.
Moriarty “Ireland, .a Sovereign State of the
American Union;” and Col. Jaquess “My
Experience in Richmond, or Conversations
with Jeff Davis, Benjamin & Co.’’
An old building on the north side of Ship
pen street, west of Ninth, has been removed
to give place to a colored High School. It
was the first type foundry in the United
States, having been erected 'for that purpose
by the late James Ronaldson.
When will our country friends learn that
even in Philadelphia thev? are sharpers? A
countryman was relieved of fifty dollars a
tew days ago in a house in Water street.—
The man in whose company he had been
was arrested on suspicion of being concerned
in the theft. -
The colored burglar, Samuel Burton, men
tioned in our la3t, was tried and plead guilty
to several charges of housebreaking, and has
been provided with comfortable quarters for
the next six years.
Gold is tottering.. The shrewd ones ex
pect that the main prop now supporting that
-took will soon give way and that it will
drop with a crash. The vain attempt of Lee
to break our lines had a damaging effect, and
tlie rumors of peace are aiding the downfall
of that precious metal. Yesterday it was
quoted w’ith sales at- 152. The prospect of a
lurther decline is fair.
The theatres are yet doing a thriving busi
ness. At the new Chestnut street,for the third
week, the “Workmen of Philadelphia” is
being performed. It is causing some of our
workingmen to look at their past lives, and
see ltow much misery the too "frequent use of
the ardent has entailed ’upon them. At the
Arch, Mr. and Mrs. Barney Williams are
-foing through a role of Irish characters. Eel
win Adams is underlineel to appear, on the
Id of April, at this theatre. On the 27th
Mrs. Henri took a benefit at the Walnut,
on which occasion anew sensational drama,
entitled “The Mother’s Dyiug Child,’’ was

THE PEACE C’O.VFEREtfCE.
Pros. Davis’ View of Georgia.
On Monday, Feb. 6, after the Peace Com
missioners had returned from Fortress Mon
ro*, Senator Johnson, of Georgia, visited
Mr. Jefferson Davis, aud held a conversation
with him, of which the following is the sub
stance, as reported subsequently by Mr.
Senator Johnson —Well, Mr. Davis, your
peace mission has failed ?
Davis —Yes; I knew it w r ould. And I
hope now' the reconstruction's will fight
Lincoln instead of fighting me.
Johnson —But Mr. Lincoln, it seems, was.
not opposed to making peace with the States.
He only refused to recognise the Confederate
Davis Hin, hin, b’m.
Johnson —l see, Mr. Davis, that you have
withdrawn all the troops from Georgia into
Carolina and Virginia. What are the people
of Georgia to do for protection ?
Davis —The people of Georgia have fol
lowed the counsels of Gov. Brown and Mr.
Stephens, and they must now protect them
Johnson—Very well, Mr. President; if
you can do without the people of Georgia,
the people of Georgia can do without you.
Whereupon, exeunt by different doors,
Davis and Johnson.
MORE ABOUT PEACE.
When Mr. Stephens came back from Fort
ress Monroe, he said to Ins friends that he
was not disappointed at the failure of his
mission ; that he knew before he started, it
would fail. He w r as now' satisfied that Mr.
Lincoln would not make peace with Davis
on any terms, but he was more sanguine
than ever that Peace was within reach of the
country. He w’as quite eertaiu we should
have peace and an honorable peace before
May 1, 1865. This result, be-declared, was
in the hands of the people, and if the people
desired peace, neither Davis nor any other
man, nor set of men, could prevent it!
W HAT PRESIDENT LINCOLN SAID.
The substance or Mr. Lincoln's language,
as reported by Mr. Stephens, was tnat ue
could not treat with Davis as the Leader of a
Rebellion. That the so-called Government
of the Confederate States could not be ac
knowledged. That he could not treat with
the States while they confessed allegiance to
and formed a part of that Government. But
that he was willing to treat with the States
separately, or with any number of them on
the basis of the Union and the Constitution.
That if peace were restored he would do ali
,in his power to remit those pain# and penal
ties to which individuals had subjected them
selves by rebellion against the Government.
That in no circumstances w r ould he recognize
the independence of the Confederacy, or
treat with it as a separate power. That he
could not enter into any truce or armistice
with Davis as (so called) President of those
were substantially as follow's :
First, That negotiations shall be conducted
as between two independent nationalities.
Second, That pending the negotiations an
armistice of 90 days shall be proclaimed.—
These instructions were communicated to
Mr. Lincoln, but were not entertained as a
basis of negotiation.
WHAT MR. STEPHENS THOUGHT,
Stephens thought that the negotiations
might form a basis for declarations by Mr.
Lincoln in his Inaugural on the Fourth of
March, and that the President w'ould then
proclaim a plan w'hich would be generally
accepted by the States as a basis of settle
ment. He (Mr. Stephens) looks upon
any further effort by the Confederate Gov
ernment toward negotiations, or to carry on
the war as futile, and unjust to the people
and the States. In a word, he considers the
functions of the Confederate Government at
STEPHENS’ PI-AN FOR PEACE.
First, Let President Lincoln issue an ad
dress to the Army and people of the South,
embodying in that address what he has before
said as to Peace, and also w’hat passed at his
interview' with the Commissioners.
Second , Agree to appoint Commissioners
on. the part ot the United States to meet State
Commissioners on the part of such States as
desire to. meet at Nashville, Louisville or
Cincinnati, in April or May, to consult as to
a peace, on the basis of suck States returning
to the Union upon the sole condition of obe
dience to the Constitution and laws of the
Third, An election by such States as shall
send Commissioners to that convention, of
Senatort and Representatives to the Congress
of the United States, to enter such Congress
upon equal terms with other members of it,
and such States to have equality on the floor
of Congress with other States. ‘
Mr. Stephens believed this plan would se
cure the approbation of North Carolina,
Georgia, Florida, Alabama,- Mississippi and
perhapr of South Carolina and Virginia.’ He
w-as quite sure it would command the assent
Oa at least six States. In present circum-
he might reasonably hope it would

LATER FROM CHARLESTON.
[From the Charleston Oourier of April 3d ]
OFFICIAL CEB JMONIEB ON THE RE-OCCUPATION
OS FOKT SUMTER.
The President has ordered Brevet Major-
General Anderson to raise over Fort Sumter
at the hour of noon on the 14th of -Wil the
same United States Hag that floateTover it
at the time of the rebel assault, and that it be
saluted with one hundred guns from Fort
Sumter and from every fort and rebel battery
that then fired upon Sumter ; also that sui
table military ceremonies be performed un
der the direction of Major General W. T.
Sherman, w'hose operations compelled the
evacuation of Charleston, or, in his absence,
under the direction of Gen. Gillmore, com
ma Ming that military department; and also
that the naval forces of Charleston be direct
ed to participate in the ceremonies, and that
the Rev. Henry Ward Beecher be invited to
deliver a public address on the occasion.
The Memorial Association.— General
Hatch lias been elected President, of the As
sociation for the erection of a Monument to
the Martyrs of the Race Course, and has
accepted it. A temporary fence will be
erected around the Race Course burying
ground and the groves in the Potter s Field
this week. It is proposed to lav the founda
tion stone on the 4th of July, and to have a
celebrated orator speak on the occasion.
Subscriptions have been opened by properly
authorized parties. The soldiers who were
buried in the Potter’s Field w ill probably be
disinterred in the autumn with inquiring
military honors. It is not intended to limit
the subscriptions to ten cents. It is only de
signed to receive that sum from all, in order
that all may have an opportunity to con
tribute to the object. There is no doubt that
SIO,OOO wall be raised. General Hatch has
given the movement his cordial support.
The Union Sentiment.— On the 25th instant,
a large gathering of the colored citizeus took
place at Zion Church for the purpose of giv
ing public expression to their Union senti
ments. The resolutions adopted at the meet
ing have already appeared in these columns.
Iu connection with this subject we will re
mark that the coloied people have evinced a
determination to go forward and do what
they cau towards establishing sound Union
principles iu this city, and, unless the white
people are energetic in thc-ir movements they
will find the work will have been accom
plished without their aid.
It is whispered in some circles that the
white people who came into our lines from the
interior, especially Columbia, are engaged
in circulating the report airfong the colored
people that all who entered into any jubilant
demonstrations on account of Union succes
ses w ere shot down by the inhabitants after
the Union forces had left, and in order to
intimidate the colored people iu the city
from giving any expressions of joy, assure
them they will share the same fate should
they follow their inclinations.
So far as the shooting is concerned we will
say that, according to our kuowiedge, the
practice has not been carried out either in
Columbia or any other place iu the State,
for the reason assigned. The colored popu
lation need have no fear whatever in express
ing tlieir Union sentiments, or in giving veut
to their jubilant feelings at being freed from
bondage. The time has gone by when a.
white man can shoot with impunity a negro
who simply asserts and maintains a right
w hich God and nature have given him.
Orphan Asylum.— We understand that
Gen. Hatch has given two fine and spacious
residences in this city for a Boys and Girls
Orphan Asylum, and that even t£e measures
are being taken to opeu them at an early
day. The originatois of the movement have
resolved to adopt the title of “The Hatch
Asylum ” as the name of the first Orphan
House to be opened.
The Public Schools.— Three thousand
one hundred and seventeen children w T ere
attending the public schools last week.
Eighty teachers are employed; seventy-four
are residents of Charleston. Seven schools
are regularly opened.
