HOW TO OBTAIN THE HERALD REG
We often have complaints from residents of Savan
nah and Hilton Head th .t they are not able always to
obtain the Puauv The demand is sometimes so
great as to ei an Edition very soon af’er its issue,
and those who wish tt, have the Herald regularly,

Savannah nd at Hilton Head, and through them we
always serve regular subscribers first.
THE LATEST INDICATION OF POLICY.
The General Order of Major General Steed
man, in our last evening edition, is another
development of the generous and beneficent
policy which the Administration lias adopted
in dealing with the reclaimed States. If any
thing were wanting to assure the speedy res
toration of these States to their old footing,
it is the promise conveyed in this Order of
non-interference by the military powers sta
tioned within them, in the civil government
The people are to be allowed to work out for
themselves the problem of reconstruction,
and are left to be the architects of their own
fortunes. Once again have the people of
Georgia experienced the bounty of a mag
nanimous and trustful authoiity—a power,
which, had it desired, could have hound the
civil officials, baud and foot, by means of gar
rison rule, or, indeed, could have withheld
all civil organization from the State, for an
indetlnite period. We have uo fear that a
. grateful people will abuse the power so free
ly and confidently placed in their hands; but
we believe that they will take advantage of
the opportunity to demonstrate to skeptics
throughout the country,, that their voluntary
legislation will be as loyal to the interests of
the whole country as the sentiments they
Gen. Steedman announces that “no inter
ference by any person in the military service
of the United States with the official acts,
orders, or efforts of the Provisional Governor
v wdi be permitted.” The language is explicit,
and the word of the officer is undoubtedly to
be relied ou. But the order goes still fur
ther ; not only are the political rights of the
- people to be secured to them, but they are
also to be defended in their social relations.
Gen. Steedman does wisely thus to go to the
bottom of the difficulty. No people can feel
themselves in a happy condition, even though
the wisest-and most liberal rule guards their
higher and more remote interests, while they
are in the common affairs of daily life ham
pered and annoyed by the formalities of petty
restrictions. Nor do they acquire a stronger
loyalty to the government through the over
zealous proselyting of those into contact
with whom the accidents of war have thrown
them, but who have no other right to give
counsel. Nothing could be plainer or sharp
er than the words of Gen. Steedman upon
“All officers of the Department are en
joiued to abstain from interfering with the
business affairs or social relations of citizens;
such interference will not be permitted, aud
officers are especially directed not to obtrude
upon lamilies, but to confine themselves in
““ their social intercourse strictly to those who
seek or invite their society.”
In this matter, 113 in the instructions rela
tive to the Freedinen atid the poor. General
Steedman has shown rare tact and delicacy
aa well as wisdom and a thorough apprehen
sion of the elements of the problem.

LET V S HOPE.
I doubt not but that a most prosperous fu
ture awaits the people of Georgia. Just now
there is much gloom aud depression on the
minds of native citizens. «It would seem to
be well, therefore, to present words of cheer
and hope, if we can do so with a good con
One cause of depression, especially in the
towns and cities, is the want of employment
aud the inadequate remuneration for such as
is furnished. There are probably three or
four hundred young men in this city who can
fiud no one to employ them. Feeling that
their mothers aud sisters greatly need the
results of their labor, they are restless aud
gloomy. Then, when a lather of a large
family gets only from six to twelve dollars
per week, and has an increasing house rent
to pay, he cannot feel happy. There is, per
haps, no greater trial in this world than lor
a father and husband to feel that with all
his exertions he cannot support his family.—
This want of employment arises largely from
a want of capital. Buildings, stores and re
sidences are needed, aud all sorts of im
provements, but there is a deficiency of cap
ital But all these embarrassments will
yield giadually to the onward march of events
The railroads opened, and the productions of
the country stimulated, capital will furnish
This will occur the more rapidly because
the old modes of investments in land and
slaves, so universal in Georgia, is now obse
iete. The large amouuts realized for cotton
will seek investment in buildings, internal
improvements and manufactories.
The laud proprietors wish no more land.
The constant tendency to cut down timber,
wear the lands, and move to new countries,
will cease. The old saying that “no man Is
settled in Georgia” is a thing of the past.
Now the farms will be smaller, the lands
will be improved, and the farmer will erect
tasteful and durable fixtures; throwing
around him the comforts and attractions of a
permanent home for himself and children.
Why should not the South henceforth be
as thrifty as the States of the great West ?
Have they free labor and public schools ?
So henceforth with the South. Does foreign
immigration add strength, wealth and pros
perity to the West? The stream of immigra
tion from Europe will now turn to the sunny
and luxuriant South. The lauds are as
cheap, andgslayery out of the way, the
country is more inviting. The hardy sons
aud daughters of the old world will furnish
the best servants iu the families ot our cities,
ies, and the most efficient laborers and far
mers in the country. The health of the
South is as good as that of the West, and
the staples are more profitable.
Slavery was the weakness of the South,
and it is best, certainly for the whites, that
it should pass away. We argued, prayed
and fought to preserve it; but God saw
that it was lor our good tyiat we should be
disappointed. He moves in a mysterious
way his wonders to perform, but always and
in all things, He doeth well.

Charleston ami Savannah—Resumption of
Regular Steam Packet Communication.
We congratulate our citizens ajid the pub
lic generally upon the resumption of regular
steam packet communication between
Charleston and Savannah, via Port Royal,
Beautort and Hilton Head.
As will be seen in the announcement in
our advertising columns this morning, the
steamer Fannie, lately purchased by our en
terprising fellow-citizen, Capt. John Fergu
son, will make the first trip from here to
morrow, leaviug Accommodation Wharf at
The Fannie is the pioneer es the new line,
to be followed by another fine steamer, which
is expected to be ready in about a fortnight.
The Fannie is a beautiful light draught ves
sel, suitable foi either the inside ur outside
route, and cau therefore make her regular
trips without special regard to the weather.
We may, therefore, expect regular mall com
munication by her. She was built for the
Mobile trade, just previous to the opening of
the war, and afterwards used by her owners
for running the blockade. She made several
successful trips, but was eventually captured
by the blockading squadron off Mobile.
The Government then fitted her up for a
gunboat, strengthening her with new timbers
and giving her a ©omplete outfit at a cost of
from thirty to forty thousand dollars. She is
provided with anew, powerful walking beam
engine specially adapted to these w aters.
The Fannie will be under the command of
the popular and experienced Captain P. C.
Lewis, with the well known Engineers,
Messrs. John G. Chalk and Johnson, in
charge of the tnachinery.
A Deserved Compliment.— The Nashville
Union states that up to the present time the
greater number of applicants for special par
don and amnesty, under the exception clauses
of President Johnson’s proclamation, are ex
officers of the late Confederate army. And
These men have fought gallantly, endured
great hardships aud sufferings, and are fa
miliar with the horrors of war. They can
appreciate properly the blessings of peace,
and are prepared, in good faith and honesty’
to resume their duties and obligations as citi
zens. So much confidence had Gen. Sher
man in the officers and soldiers of Johnston’s
command, after mingling with them subse
quent to their surrender, that he would, in
case of invasion of the United States, be
willing to command them.
Tub Great Trial.— ln the conspiracy
trial at Washington the number of witnesses
subpoenaed for the prosecution was 251.4-
Tlie number of witnesses actually examined.

defence,'236. Number of w itnesses actually

eight inches high. The expenses of the
trial were about .$25,000.
The friends and acquaintance of Mr.* JOHN DOYLE
and larally, and of Mr. James Doyle and family
are repectfully invited to attend the funeral
ot the former, from his late residence, corner of West
Broad and Margaret streets, this afternoon at half
past three o’clock.
jThe friends and acquaintance of PATRICK and
JAMES SKINNER are respectfully invited to attend
the funeral of the former, from the residence of the
latter, ou Indian street, this morning, at 9 o’clock.
Tile Offense is Rank. ♦
We hold it inexcusable in any person, male or fe
male, when they subject us to an annoyance which a
very little trouble on their part would obviate. Es
pecially is this the case where the unfortunate possess
or of a bad breath will persist in button-holding and
Intruding his views upon us, to onr manifest mental
and physical discomfort. If these good people would
use the Sozodo.nt it would not only render them ac
ceptable acquaintances, but would at once greatly im
prove their teeth and breath.
