SAVANNAH. WEDNESDAY. APRIL 26. 18fe-
Under our Court head will be found an
important decision in the case of Dr. P. M.
Koilock and wife. They were about to go
through the lines last week, and when em
barking on the Emilie to go up the river,
their baggage was searched by the Provost

tities of medicines, gunpowder, gun-caps,
shoes, &c., articles contraband of war. They

themselves in saving the ship’s property are
James Smith, Executive Officer lu command;
Uriah Folger, Acting Ex. Officer; Rubin
McClelehan. Chief Engineer; Mr. Barrow

No blame can ba attached to the Captain
or officers of the ship.
The flat that caused the injury broke loose
from McAlpin’s wharf ou Sunday night and
sank in the channel of the river perfectly
submerged. The owners of this flat have
committed a crime punishable in a severe
manner, by not reporting her sinking and an
obstruction of danger to navigation.

TILE CAPTURE OF EUFALA, MONT

Tbb Northern papers of the'2 lst contain
the news of the capture of the above places,
oopied from the Savannah Daily Hkkald,
and credited to us. Before this they have,
doubtless, received the full confirmation of
the intelligence from other sources.
Likut. Frederick Terpen.— The numerous
friends of this young officer of the Army of
Northern Virginia, previously reported moit

Mr Davenport's Benefit— The Benefit of
this deserving young actor last night was a
most substantial affair, the house being liter

made a happy and appropriate little speech,
which we shall give, together with a more
elaborate notion of the performance, in our
TH» NEW V. «. A. GENERAL HOS
PITAL AT HILTON HEAD.
The Surgeon in charge of this establish •
ment is Dr. John F. Huber. The building
< itself ba9 recently been extensively enlarged,
apd its accommodations .greatly increased.
When originally built, the Hospital was in
the form of a square, 825 feet on each side,
with an open court 275 feet square, in which
were located the kitchen and knapsack room.
The present surgeon in charge, John F.
Huber. U. S. Yols., made the proper repre
sentation of its various faults, and through
his energy in the matter an order was pro
cured, directing the enlargement and altera*
tion in progress.
The front or sea wing of the old building
will be torn away, and two parallel pavilions
be erected in the court. The kitcheu will be
removed to the rear of the Hospital. Nine
other pavilions will be built on the south
side of the present Hospital, makjpg a total
of seventeen wards, each containing sixty
beds for sick. Each ward will be a ridge
ventilated building, nearly 200 feet long, 24
feet wide, and 14 feet to the eaves. The
wnrds will be furnished with all the modern
conveniences for a General Hospital, such as
bath-rooms, water-closets and lavatories
Each ward will be set on brick pilos and be
surrounded with piazzas 12 feet wide. The
distance between the wards will be 67 feet,
ample space for the free circulation of air.
In addition to the ward buildings, there
will be a large two-story administrative
building, both stories surrounded with
porches. At the front of this building w-m
be an octagonal tower, with a base fifty feet
in diameter. The upper story of this tower
will have a room for night watch and fire
alarm. The flag-staff will be on the top of
The dining room will be conveniently lo
cated and commodiousiy arranged. The
kitchens will be large and furnished with
Harrison's European ranges. The laundry
will have washing machines and mangling
irons, run by means of a small steam engine,
which will also run a Worthington steam
pump, to fill the reservoir—from which every
ward and the kitchens will be supplied with
water, the sinks washed, and the bath-tubs
filled, thus embracing all the conveniences
that could be obtained in a large city.
A beautiful*und commodious Cbapel,Libra
ry and Reading Room will be erected, where
the convalescents can resort for worship and
the pursuit of knowledge.
Through the centre of the Hospital will be
built a corridor, 20 feet wide, roofed and
floored, but not sided. The railway will be
extended from the dock, running through
this corridor to the southern extremity of the
Hospital. On this road will be placed prop
erly arranged ambulance cars* to convey
sick and wounded to and from the boats.—
Small cars properly heated will be used to
carry provisions from the kitchen to each
ward, thus serving the meals hot.
A brick sewer will extend the whole length
of the Hospital, with inlets from the wards
to receive the offal from the various wards.
The frout will be eight hundred feet in
length. The wards will extend five hundred
feet hack. The wards will be so located that
each one will face the sea. Patients sitting
on the porches will have a fine view of the
harbor and the benefit of the 9ea breeze.
A thorough and efficiently arranged fire
apparatus will be connected with the steam
pump, which will be used not only to ex
tinguish lire should any occur, but to wet the
earth between the wards in warm weather.
When completed, this building is expected
to compare favorably with any of the North
ern Hospitals, and will have ths advantage
of delightful sea breezes. Recently a large
tract of land was set aside for the use of this
Hospital, which will be appropriated for re
creation grounds and vegetable and flower
It is mainly to the energy and ingenuity of
Surgeon Huber that credit'must be accorded
tor this fine establishment. lam indebted to
the Doctor for the above facts, and for other
courtesies extended on several occasions.
Information Wantbd.— -The Chief of Po
lice desires information of the whereabouts
in this city of William Jackson, a refugee
from Ga., which city he left about five ago.
He has dark complexion, black hair and
whiskers •, is lame in his right leg from the
effects of a ball. Mrs. Mary Jackson, the
wife of Mr. Jackson, has left at the Police
office his likeness, and she is desirous of
finding her husband.
Grand Revikw Yesterday.— The troops
at this post were reviewed yesterday after
noon by Gen. Gillmore. The troops were
in fine condition, and their good appearance
was evidently gratifying to the General com
manding the Department. Gen. Gillmore
was accompanied by his Staff.
Returned Home.— The following persons,
residents of Savannah, and lately attached to
the Army and Navy of Northern Virginia,
retnmed home yesterday by the Gen Sedg
wick : F. G. Butler, Wm. Brooks, and Wm.
Spellers, of Fraser’s Battery, (Pulaski
Guards,) Wm. McAllister and John Duno

The Prayer for the President*
toe closing or cbbist’s church.
The Prayer to be Regularly used
Last Monday morning we announced that
the Prayer for the President of the United
States and all Those in Civil authority was
used, as prescribed in the Ritual at St. John’s
Church, but that a notice was posted at
Christ's Church announcing that it would be
closed for the day. Various reports were in
circulation in regard to the motives for the
suspension of services, and the policy to be
adopted against those who gave such evi
dences of disloyalty as were imputed to the
Pastor and soma of the members of Christ
Chnrch; but we did not deem it proper to
give any publication to them unless the re
ports were proved, or some action had boen
Yesterday, during Gen. Gillmore’s recep
tion of citizens of Savannah, he was waited
on by several gentlemen connected with
Christ Church, who presented the following
letter to the General:
Savannah, April 25th, 1865.
General Gillmoue : I respectfully beg to
state that I uuderstand my order on Saturday
night last was to use the Prayer for the
President of the United States, with the al
ternative of going as prisoner to Fort Pulas
ki. or closing the Church. As Assistant
Minister only, and governed by a law of ouf
Ecclesiastical Council, I thought it best, un
der the circumstances, to close the Church,
hoping I might in a few days hear from the
Rector of Christ Church and Bishop of the
Diocese, giving me permission to use the
Hereafter, if lam allowed to'remain, that
Prayer shall be regularly used, and I sincere
ly hope, for the sake of the congregation, I
may be allowed to remain. _
C. H. COLET,
Asst. Minister of Christ Church.
Gen. Gillmore referred the gentlemen and
the letter to Col. Stewart Woodford, his chief
of staff, who received them with his usual
urbanity and affability.
They earnestly requested that Mr. Coley
might be allowed to remain in the city ou
condition that he should take the oath of al
legiance; Col. Woodford blandly replied that
he had not the least objection—that Mr.
Coliy eould remain or leave as he'preferred.
He stated that it was not required of any one
to take the oath of allegiance, but that he
could do ao if he wished.
Subsequently Mr. Coley called and present
ed the following application in writing i
Major General Gillmore :
Having relinquished my allegiance to the
Confederacy, I now desire to take the Oath
of Allegiance to the United States, and re
quest permission to do so.
0. H. Oolet.
Savannah, April 25, 1863.
Mr. Coley was accordingly furnished by
Lieut. James, of Gen. Giilmore’s Staff, with
a written permission to remain in the city
and re-open the Church for services as usual.
Col. Woodford was very courteous to the
Clergyman and the other gentlemen with
whom he had the interview. The result is
doubtless very gratifying to the worshippers
at Christ Church, and we know it is to all
The policy of the government, as we un
derstand it, is to be one of the greatest
leniency to all heretofore attached to the
Confederate cause who return to their alle
giance, but severe against those who persist
in acts of disloyalty, among which, we pre
sume, would be classed the omission of a
prayer from a prescribed ritual because It
contained a petition in behalf of the rulers]of
the nation, or the alteration of its phraseolo
gy to a style in which the President of the
United States is ignored.
The policy of the government was very
well developed in Col. Woodford’s speech at
the Union meeting last Saturday, and seems
now to be plainly understood by all to whom
it is of importance.
