ARRIVAL OF SECRETARY WELLS
The Steamer Santiago de Cuba, Capt.
Glissen, having on board Secretary Wei es
and other distinguished guests arrived at
Tybce this morning, accompanied by the L*.
S. Steamer Donegal, with Admiral Dalgren
and suite. The whole p rty embarked at
Tybee upon the U. S. Steamer Geranium,
(’apt. Henry Pease, Jr., and reached the city
about 11 o’clock. The Daffodil, which ac
companied the party from Hilton Head ar
rived shortly after. All the shipping at the
wharves were trimmed with bunting in hon
or of the arrival of the Secretary. The party
proceeded immediately to the Pulaski House
Noticks op the Savannah Daily Herald. —
Our exchanges, North and South, all speak
well of the Herald, and some of them give
us very complimentary notices. A Savan
nah letter to the Manchester Daily Mirror, a
spicy and enterprising sheet, nearly as large
as the Herald, published away up in New
Hampshire, where they don’t get cucumbers
till the last of Juuc, md coon hunting comes
on late in the fall, contains the following flat
tering allusion to us:
“One of the smartest newspapers that was
ever published in the State of Georgia is now
printed here. It is a morning and evening
jou.nal, aud always has the latest news from
the North or South. It lias euterprisiug cor
respondents at New York, Boston, Philadel
phia, and other places at the North. It also
has an agent at Hilton Head, who, as soon
as a boat airives, goes aboard aud gets the
news, and immediately telegraphs it to Sa
vannah. Our enterprising friend, S. W. Ma
son, well known in Manchester, is one of the
firm, aud we advise all Manchester people
who wish to get the latest authentic news
from this Department to send their names at
once for the Savannah Daily Herald.”
Theatre at Hilton Head. —We can tru
ly congratulate our many triends at Hilton
Head, on the immediate prospect of an ex
cellent dramatic treat. Their theatre, so
long closed to the public is to be at once
opened under the able management of Mr.
A. H. Davenport, who has been the real
soul and spirit of the dramatic enterprise
here, and to whom is due all success that the
Savannah Company has achieved. Mr.
Davenport, takes with him the flower of the
Company which has pleased us heie so many
weeks, Mr. Herndon, Mr. Simpson, Miss
Florence La Fond. Mrs. M. L. Berrell and
Miss Hattie Lee.
That they will give good performances we
can assure our friends at Hilton Head, and
that Messrs. Devenport, Herndon & Cos., are
gentlemen emineotly worthy of their kind
est regard, we can assure them, from the
teachings of many years experience.
The Late Plot to Massacre Paroled
Rebel Soldiers at Memphis indicates, we
fear, that the bloody spirit which permitted
or instigated the fearful cold-blooded murder
of negro troops at Fort Pillow' and other
places, is beginning to bear its bitter fruit,
and that the negroes have resolved to play
the fearful game of retaliation, We fear
that this first-recorded example may be fol
lowed by others more successlul, unless spe
cial pains be taken to keep the paroled rebels
out of the way of our colored troops. The
recent orders of certain of onr Generals com
manding cities, compelling the rebel soldiers
to leave for their several homes as soon as
paroled, and not to congregate in the cities
in large numbers, we recoguize as eminently
wise. We trust that further mischief may
be prevented, for there can be little doubt
that if the spirit of retaliation once takes
thorough hold of all our colored soldiers,
they will pay off the old score with a com
pound interest of blood.

Archives of the Late Confederacy Cap
tured.—A despatch from Fortress Monroe,
on the 20th inst., says:
Col. R. B. Trent, of Gen. Schofield’s staff,
arrived here at a late hour last evening from
Newbern, N. C., in the steamer John Tracy,
riu the Albemarle Canal, bringing with him
about five tons of Rebel documents, the ar
chives ot the late Southern Confederacy,
‘“late of Richmond.” &c., which were cap
tured u few days since by a portion of our
forces at Charlotte, N. C. It will be remem
bered that when Gen. Lee’s army evacuated
Richmond so hurriedly, the Rebel authorities
immediately consigned to the flames a large
portion of the documents, &c., relating to the
proceedings ot their Congress, but reserved
and packed up the most important and sent
them off to Charlotte, N. C., for sate keep
ing, little dreaming that these documents
embracing all their deep laid plots and secrets
would so speedily fall into the hands of our
Government. These documents will no doubt
prove of great interest, and their capture at
this juncture may be regarded as mo3t im
portant. They are in charge of Col. Trent
and strongly guarded. They were committed
to his care by Gen. Schofield. On reaching
