FROM THE INTERIOR*
Augustii Dates to tlio ltith.
Miron md Atlanta Paper*.
We have received later interior papers
from which we make the following extracts;
Augusta Union Club. —The membership
of this Club is increasing dally, and on Mon
day evening next it i9 proposed to organize
by the election of officers. The meeting will
be held at some central point so that all the
members may have an opportunity of attend
ing. One or two patriotic addresses may be
expected. All persons who have taken the
oath of allegiance and who are prepared to
sustain the declared policy of the govern
ment, are again requested to enroll them
selves amongst its mempers.
This organization looks to the speedy re
construction of the State Government on the
basis of loyalty to the constitution and laws
and a faithful 1 support ot the proclamation
touching slavery.— Augusta Sentinel $ Chroni
Another Negro Shot. —We learn that, a
lady in Forsyth shot, and badly wounded a
negro woman on Monday morning. It seems
that her negroes that morning all left her,
but in a little white one of the women came
back and made an effort to take off a tub. —
This the lady objected to, when the negro
seized her by the collar and forced her back.
Thereupon the lady drew and fired a revolv
er the discharge taking effect in the heiad
above the left eye. She came to the city
yesterday and reported to Gen. Wilson facts
in accordance with the above. — Macon Tele
Drowned.— Corporal .Tames Hamilton, Cos.
K, 176t1i New York Volunteers, fell over
board from the steamer Amazon on the morn
ing of the 13th, and was drowned- He was
about 25 years of age. His body was not re
covered. He leaves a wife and family at the
North.— Avgusta Chronicle Sentinel.
Gen. Moltxfaux having been assigned to
the command of the District of Nor: hern Ga.,
with headquarters still at Augusta, assumes
the command in an order from which we
make the following extract# :
“The inhabitants of this District are noti
fied that slavery is abolished, and that any
action recognizing it in any way is piohibit
ed. Tlte military authorities will giye every
assistance and encouragement to restoring
peace and prosperity to all loyal persons.
“All cases of lawlessness or violence must
be reported to the nearest military post that
the same may be properly punished. In
places where there is no military force sta
tioned, such sheriffs, justices of the peace,
and constables, as have taken the amnesty
oath, will be allowed to act in their respec
tive functions so far as to cause arrests for
breaking of the peace or other criminal cases,
but must bring the parties (white or black)
as prisoners, to l)g tried before the nearest
“Planters are advised to make contracts
with the freedmen, and are referred to the
labor regulations of J. E. Bryant, General
Superintendent. Vagrancy and idleness on
the part of tncedmen will not be permitted ;
they must labor for their support."
Arrival oe Troops. —The 23d United
States colored infantry arrived at Augusta
on the 16th. These troops, we learn, are to
be stationed in that city.
The Adams’ Express Company —Adams’
Express Company's messengers are now
running as far as Kingston, Ga., on the At
lantic and Western Railroad, sixty milps from
The Crops in the State.- —We are inform
ed that the wheat crop now being harvested,
is a fair average one, that the yield may not
be as great as some former seasons, but that
the quality is good. In some sections wheat
is more or less injured by smut. Corn prom
ises a fair turn out, the seasons’ havidg been
Very favorable.— Avgusta Chronicle Sentinel.
Relations of England and America. — I
have never believed that there was any real
danger of a quarrel between the two coun
tries ; but it is qf immense importance that
we should be firm friends; and this is our
natural state, for though there is a portion
of the higher and middle classes of Great
Britain who so dread and hate democracy
that they cannot wish prosperity and power
to a democratic people, I sincerely believe
that this feeling is not general, even in our
privileged classes. Most of the dislike and
suspicion which have existed toward the U.
States were the effect of pure ignorance—ig
norance of your history, and ignorance of
your feeling and disposition as a people. It
is difficult tor you to believe that this igno
rance could be as dense as it really was. —
But the late events have begun ft* dissipate
it; and if your Government and people act
as I fuliv believe they will in regard to the im
portant' questions which now await them,
there will be no fear of their being ever again
so grossly misunderstood, at least in the lives
of the present generation. —John Stuart Mill.
Price of Negro Labor in Virginia.— The
Richmond Republican ot the 3d says :
“A meeting of farmers representing Gooch
lann, Louisa, Albermarie, Caroline, Orange,
Hanover, and Fluvanna counties, was held
at Louisa Court House, ou the Ist instant,
for the purpose of considering thq question
of the remuneration to be made for negro la
bor, hereafter. After deliberation, k
was determined to fix the hire of
field hands at five dollars per month—the
negro to furnish his clothing and pay his
doctor’s bills. The sum of one dollar per
day for hands during harvest was also fixed
upon This is an important movement, being
the first fixing the pay for the negroes in
Mexican Privateers. —The Panama Her
ald says ? It is stated upon what appears to
be reliable authority, that President Juarez
has issued letters of marque for reprisals
against French commerce. The letters in
tended for the Pacific waters were issued
several weeks ago, and those for the Atlan
tic more recently. The result of this may
be to cover the ocean with privateers, the
precedents of neutrality established in the
American civil war having greatly facilitat
ed this policy. K

—A child's faith in his mother is well il

mittee on Territories in the House, has left

—Already there has been a considerable
reduction in the wages paid to mechanics and
laborers in Troy, N. Y., and vicinity, owing
to the prospective return of a large number

Chicago. Mr. Lincoln’s executor and nearest
Mend, U. S. Judge Daniel Davis, of Illinois,

notified Mrs. L. that her means are very

—The Pope of Rome was seventy-three
