No. 63. > V
1. The proclamation of jfeSfcG. Magrath,
styling himself Governor of aßkith Carolina,
dated at Headquarters, Cdwmbia, 8011th
Carolina, May 2d, 1865, declarhg that all sub
sistence stores and the proper of the Con
federate States within the limits of the State
should be turned over and accounted for by
the Agents of the State, appointed for that
purpose, and directing that tie subsistence
and other stores shall tie used for the relief of
the people of the State ; and the proclama
tion of Joseph E. Brown, styling himself Go
vernor of Georgia, dated at the capitol of that
State, on the 3d day of May, 1865, requiring
the officers and members of the General As
sembly to meet in extraordinary session at
the Capitol in Milledgeville on Monday, the
22d day of May, 1865 ; and the proclamation
of A. K. Allison, styling himself Acting Gov
ernor of Florida, dated at Tallahassee, on the
Bth day of April 1865, giving notice and di
rection that an election will be hold on Wed
nesday, the 7th day of June, 1865, for Gov
ernor of the State of Florida ; are, each and
all of them, declared null and void, it, having
become known to me, from trustworthy in
formation, that the aforesaid A. G. Magrath,
Joseph E. Brown, and A. K. Allison, are dis
loyal to the United States, having committed
sundry and divers acts of treason against the
9ame, in adhering to their enemies, giving
.hem aid and comfort.
The persons and peoples, to whom the
proclamations hereinabove referred to have
been respectively addressed, are therefore
enjoined and commanded to give no heed
whatever thereto, or to any orders, procla
mations, commissions, or commands, emana
ting from persons claiming the right to exer
cise the functions aud authority of Governor
in either ot the States of South Carolina,
Georgia, or Florida, unless the same shall
have been promulgated by the advice or
consent of the United States authorities.
11. The policy and wishes of the general
government towards the people of these
States, and the method which should be pur
sued by them in iesuming or assuming the
exercise of their political rights, will doubt
less be made known at an early day.
It is deemed sufficient, meanwhile, to an
nounce that the people of the black race are
free citizens of the United States, that it is
the fixed intention of a wise and beneficent
government to protect them in the enjoy
ment of their freedom and the fruits of their
industry, and that it is the manifest and
binding duty of all citizens, whites as well
as blacks, to make such arrangements and
agreements among themselves, lor compen
sated labor, as shall he mutually advan
tageous to all parties. Neither idleness nor
vagrancy will be tolerated, and the - govern
ment will not extend pecuniary aid to any
persons, whether white or black, wbo are
unwilling to help themselves.
111. District and Post Commanders
throughout this Department will at once
cause this order to be circulated far and wide,
by special couriers or otherwise, and will
take such steps to secure its enforcement as
may by them be deemed necessary.

Arrest of Governor Magrath.
Hi? Address to the People of the
[Fiom the Charleston Courier 27th ult.]
Lieut. George C. Breek, Third New York
Artillery, who was scut with a detachment
of fifteen men ou a mission to Columbia, S.
C., arrived in this city at seven o’clock Satur
day evening with ex-Governor A.G.Magrath.
The latter, on his arrival was immediately
driven in a carriage from the rail road depot
to the steamer Anna Maria, which soon after
left fo%Hilton Head. The Governor on the
route was in good spirits, and took his arrest
as a matter of course.
Lieut. Breek deserves the highest credit for
the successful performance of his mission.
On his first arrival in Columbia he took up
his quarters in the College Campus, and met
with a very kind and hospitable reception
from the citizens. From reports w hich he
had received of a bitter feeling still existing
in the interior he had been led to expect, with
his small guard, some demonstration of hos
tility. He, however, kept ou, and, reaching
Columbia, delivered Gen.Gillmore’s despatch

ernor having left ou a visit to his family at

people of South Carolina, aud indicating his

Executive Department, >
Columaia, May 22, 1865. >
To the People of' South Carolina :
I have this day received information of an
order issued by Major-General Q. A. Gill
more. I deem it proper, without delay, to
present to you for your information, such
portions thereof as affect me and concern
you ; because they create for you a conflict
with the forces of the United States, which
can only be avoided by my forbearauce to
exercise the functions of the Executive De
partment of the State.
[Here follows General Gillmore"s order in
relation to the rebel Governors of South Car
olina, Georgia and Florida.]
I cannot, under ail the circumstances
which surround you, expose you to the con
sequences which will be produced because
of any effort on my part—fruitless, if not
mischievous, as it must be—to exercise those
functions which you in your confidence have
committed to me. Nor am I willing that,
without such consequences to vou, while in
the Executive Chair of the State, shall I be
PRICE, 5 CENTS
held forth to the world charged with crime:
without the most positive declaration, that I
am reaily to meet aud repel it, wherever aud
by whomsoever made.
In that peculiar condition of our affairs,
which is now disclosed to you, I feel that my
duty, whether considered in regard to myself
as your Executive, or to you as a people
whose welfare is dear to me, is at once plaiu
and imperative. I will not introduce within
this State discord or contention. I will not
allow myself to furnish the occasion by
which a single atom of suffering can be added
to that load which now weighs so heavily
upon you. I will not give opportunity for
conflict between the Government of this State
and the Government of the .United State.B.
The functions, therefore, of the Executive are
suspended by me from'this day.
Under other circumstances and at other
times, l would pause in doing that which I
now do without hesitation;and with a perfect
conviction that it is due to you that it should
be done, The exercise of the executive pow
er in the proclamation of the 2d May, 1865,
which was complained of, has been rectified
and the proclamation recalled. Before my
letter was received containing the explana
tion of the circumstances which led to the
proclamation, these orders have been issued;
in which because of “trustworthy informa
tion” of “disloyalty” and “suadry and divers
acts of treason,” the functions of the Gover
nor of the State are suspended and bis au
thority denied. To exercise my functions
in the face of these orders, is to invoke force
to sustain me in opposition to that which
will he displayed against me. Such a contest
could have hut one result while to those
in the State who would give their support to
the Executive, must come penalties and suf
fering, without, the possibility of advantage.
Whatever, therefore, may be the feeling
which belongs to me as a mau or a citizen,
in a case like this where conviction precedes
the hearing, and sentence comes before the
trial; I feel that it becomes me to be mindful
of the considerations which involve your
peace and affect your welfare. I have said
to you before, I say to you now, the war [is
over, hostilities have ceased: and it is your
duty to forbear opposition which is hopeless
—contest which is unavailing—and reconcile
to yourselves that submission which the Gov
ernment of the United States can impose,
and you cannot resist.
While the considerations which I have now
expressed lead me to this forbearance in the
exercise of the functions of the Executive
Department of the State, I owe it to myself,
to you, to the State, the Legislature of which,
according to the Constitution of this State,
elected me the Governor of the State, to
make my protest against the power claimed
and exercised by Gen. Gillmore. It involves
a question which concerns not alone this
State, hut all the States of the United Slates.
It affirms a principle which it is not neces
sary now for me to discuss.
Whatever may be youx condition, unavail
ing resistance on your part will but make it
worse. With an earnestness of the sincerity
of which I need not give you assurance, I
urge upon you the resumption of your peace
ful pursuits, and the adaptation of yourselves
to those changes which may tie made in yonr
condition. Do not be misled by excitement;
give no heed to passion; deal resolutely with
tacts; look the truth calmly in the face;
spill no more blood ; accept with the dignity
which even mistortuue can command, the
condition which you cannot avert.
In thus suspending the active exercise of
the duties ot my office, I do so with the
most earnest wish that your sufferings may
soon find mitigation and relief: that you
nmy retrieve the waste and loss of prosperi
ty which yon have eudured in the progress
of the war, and that you may experience
those blessings, intellectual, social and
moral, which, under the favor of God, were
the great ends which I desired to accom
plish. To have succeeded in these would
have secured to me a reward, the richest
and only inheritance which 1 could have left
to my children.
With regard to myself, so far as I am af
fected by the charges which are made
against me, I am ready to answer to them
or to any of them. At any time or place,
when or where my presence may be de
sired or required for investigation,! shall be.
if notified thereof, with the least pos
sible delay. Whatever I have said, I believe
to he true ; whatever I have done, I believe
to lie right. And with this consciousnes of
the rectitude of my purpose and of-the in
tegrity of my conduct, I shall not avoid,
delay or hinder the closest scrutiny that can
To you, among whom I was horn ; to you,
with whom my whole life has been spent; to"
you, whose confidence I have enjoyed; to.
you, whose testimony I feel I could well in
voke for my conduct, I have but to express
the pain which lips condition of the State
has cost me, and to wish you all the happi
ness which a people are ever permitted to
enjoy, A. G. Magrath.
The 2"» th Ohio regiment, Lieutenant Col.
Haughton, arrived at Columbia Thursday
evening. They are to constitute the perma
nent post garrison of Columbia. The Phoe
nix, noticing the arrival of these troops,
“With their arrival, we learn that Gov.
Magrath has been notified that he is under
arrest, on the charge of high treason, and
that lie will take his departure this day, via
Charleston, for the city of Washington.”
We are indebted to Captain J. R. Gilimore,
of General Gillinore’s Staff, who has just ar
rived from Columbia, for the Phoenix of the
2»Jth and 27th instant. They contain nothing
oi special interest.
Hon. T. J. Goodwin had resigned his office
as Mayor of the city of Columbia, and J. G.
Gibbs, Esq., was elected to fill his place.
The Phoenix of Friday, 2<>th inst., says :
% Governor Magrath was arrested and take.,
off in an ambulance, uodcr the escort of a
lieutenant and two soldiers, about 2 P. M.
yesterday. The great body of the most res
pectable citizeus waited upon him during the
morning, before his departure, expressing
their sympathy and respect. That such an
arrest should take place in 'the capital of
South Carolina, aud in the case of its'Execu
tive, should be conclusive as to the completg
moral and physical prostration of the countjy.
