HOW TO OBTAIN THE HERALD RE6*
We often have complaints from residents of Savan
nah and Hilton Head that they are not able alwnyi to
obtain the Fzasr.n. The demand is sometimes so
great as to exhsastan Edition very soon atVritalmaf,
and those who wish to have the Herald regularly,
ehosld subscribe for it. We have Duthful carriers in
Ba\annab and at Hilton Head, and through them we
alwayß serve regular subscribers first.
BUSINESS DIRECTORY OK SAVANNAH.
We are now publishing a column and more of brief
business announcements, carefully classified, under
the general head of “Savannah Business Directory.”
It includes some forty leading business men and
firms of Savannah. We proposo to retain thU as a
regular feature of the Herald. The expense of In
wrung cards in this department oT the paperts very
small, and we believe the adrertlsurs will receive
more than a proportionate benefit. Parties wishing
to have their cards Included in this Directory, can do
so by sending them to our counting room, or hand-*
mg them to Mr. Af. J. Divine, who U authorised to
receive them. Prepayment will be invariably re
OUR DUTY AS A NATION.
Now that the unity of this great Republic
is established on an imperishable basis by
the final settlement of questions, the agita
tion of which culminated in the® te bloody
war, the Government and people should ob
serve the greatest caution in readjusting the
policy which is to govern our intercourse
with foreign nations.
Recent popular demonstrations have dis
closed the existence of a considerable politic
cll* organization, having for its object the
direct intervention of this country in behalf
ot European Liberals in their conflicts with
despotism. The leaders of this party assert
that it is the duty and mission of this coun
try to interfere abroad for the assertion of
the democratic principles that underlie our
institutions. They openly charge in their ad
dresses to the public that our National Gov
ernment, in its refusal to adopt their peculiar
views upon this subject, has been influenced
by selfishness and a want of sympathy for
the cause of liberal principles in Europe.
The '‘let alone’’ policy of our Government
of which they complain, has been dictated
not by selfishness, but by commendable pru
dence. In husbanding our resources and
economizing our strength, wo have not been
acting in our own interests simply, but in the
interests of humanity. If in placing free in
stitutions upon an imperishable basis, in rear
ing a race of freemen whose influence will be
mighty and enduring, and enlarging the area
of freedom by colonizing the sparsely settled
districts of our vast territory, our energies are
chiefly expended, the gain to 'republicanism
and to political equality will be immensely
greater than if those efforts were directed to
the overthrow of European absolutism.
f -The mission of this country is rather to
auc? *MP to them theF
land of welcome and protection, than to re
suscitate effete monarchies by quickehing
ind purifying them with the breath of free
lorn, or to waste our strength iu the promo
ion of revolts which prove to be fruitless.
This is not selfishness. It is acompre
tensive grasp of the most fittipg means for
.he attainment of the greatest good of the
jreatest number. *
We have emerged in safety from a civil
struggle whose gigantic proportions are well
calculated to give the world an appreciation
of our rapidly preponderating strength. Our
great family quarrel is ended, and we shall
henceforth boa re-united and vigorous peo
ple. All sections will combine their energies
for the common welfare, emigration will
swell our population and power, and our re
sources, North and South, .will increase in a
scale of colossal mngnitude.
Then, if we are true to duty and to des
tiny, we shall be prepared for the coming
struggle between freedom and tyranny on
The policy we have here indicated has
been adhered to by our Government from its
foundation to the present time, and the coun
try has no reason to believe that it will be
departed from by those now holding the
reins of government at Waslrington.

The increased nativity of business in all
branches of trade during the past week has
been apparent to the most casual observer.
The gradual re-opening of some of the ob
structed channels of communication with the
interior has caused this improvement; and
affords a gratifying indication of that ex
pansion which must necessarily follow the
entire completion of the repairs now pro
gressing on the railroads, and the contem

The most interesting feature, however,
now presenting itself in connection with the
affairs of this road, is the practical inaugura

portation over this road, but in view of the
immediate importance of the connection, we
may venture the assurance that operations
thereon will commence simultaneously with

TOO BARBAROUS FOR BELIEF.
The Washington correspondent of the
Boston Journal is responsible for the follow*
An atrocious case, illustrative of slave
bolding barbarism, was told by a
negro who appeared at the s>fflce of the
Frcedmen’s Bureau to-day, asking for relief.
This colored man says he was formerly free
and, working for wages in Maryland across
the Eastern Branch. He went South in
1857 with a Dr. Lee,-for whom he had been
working, persuaded by spurious promises of
higher pay, going first to Athens, Georgia,
afterwards to Knoxville, Tenn., where Dr.
Lee for a time kept the Knoxville hotel, and
subsequently removed to Jonesboro*. Re
ceiving wages at first, he was at length held,
and treated as a slave. In the winter of
18C3, Dr. Lee hired him out to the rebel Post
Quartermaster at Jonesboro’. After remain
ing eight or ten months he attempted to es
cape to the lines of the National forces. He
got twenty miles away, but was captured
and taken bock, when bis rebel quartermaster
took him to Surg. Williams, in charge ot the
rebel hospital there, and ordered him to cut
ofFtois feet and hands, to prevent, as be said,
his attempting to run away again. The Dr.
partially compiled amputating both legs just
above the ankle. He left the stumps undress
ed Over night, hut finding him alive the next
day, said, “What, you nigger I are you
alive yet? I intend to kill you." He
tbeh had him placed in an ambulance and
taken to the but of an old colored man,
where he remained until our troops occu
pied the place. This colored man brings
vouchers from white people corroborative of
his statements, which are believed by officers
of the Bureau.
The correspondent who furnishes the
above to the Boston Journal is a mere daub
at his business, and should be discharged at
once for incompetency to meet the require
ments of the truth-loving philanthropic
public. Such barbarities as he describes are
of every day occurrence and are nothing in
comparison with the brutality to which the
intelligent contrabands are even now con
tinually subjected. It is by no means un
common to see venerable old negroes hob
blifig about our streets minus a leg or arm
or both, their limbs having been taken off as
punishment for some trivial offence. Cases
are known where cruel masters have sent
their negroes to Confederate surgeons to have
n leg or arm amputated, and sometimes to be
skinned alived. There are several cases
known in which the original epidermis has
been entirely removed and the poor victims
having. survived the inhuman torture, are
now going about like soft-shelled crabs, with
only a thin filmy covering through which
may be traced cutical veins, and the whole
phenomena of veinous circulation observed
with the naked eye. Cases in which this
operation was performed by bungling or
drunken surgeons proved fatal, but no notice
was ever taken of them by the authorities.
In several instances in which poor negroes
were sent to the operating rooms tq have a
leg taken off to prevent them from running
away, the barbarous Confederate surgeons,
in their stupidity and drunkenness, got hold
of the wrong ends of their victims, and took
off their heads instead of their feet. None of

vouchers from white people, and are believed
By some officers of the bureau." There is a
Confederate surgeon now in Savannah, who
having been directed to amputate both feet
of a spirited and valuable negro, to keep him
from escaping to the enemy, by mistake got
hold of the biting end instead of the pedal
extremity of his intended victim, and had
three of his fingers and a thumb bitten off.
A DESERVED PROMOTION.
Major W. L. M. Burger, Adjutant Geueral
of the Department of South Carolina, has
been promoted to a -Brevet Lleuti-Colonelcy,
for uniformly meritorious services ia the dis
charge of his duties.
We have known Col. Burger long, and
have a high esteem for him as a gallant offi
cer, an' Adjutant General«of rare ability, an
bonorable, courteous gentleman, and a firm
friend. His rare qualities have made Idm a
host of friends, who will bo rejoiced at this
official recognition of bis services.
Col. Burger was formerly Adjutant of the
Ist N. Y. Vol. Engineers, and was at the
taking of Port Royal, In November, 18C1.
He served ns Acting Assistant Adjutant
General to Major General Gillmore at the
selge of Fort Pulaski, and, subsequently,
for seven months in Kentucky as Assistant
Adjutant General. In the latter capacity he
continued with General Gillmore throughout
the operations against Charleston j and while
the 10th Army Corps, with Its commander,
was absent at James’ River, he remained at
Headquarters, Hilton Head, as Senior Assis
tant Adjutant General with General Foster.
He still occupies that position on General
Aid for thb Navajoe Indians. —Secretary
of the Interior, Harlan, and the Commissioner
of Indian Affairs had a very satisfactory con
ference on Monday last, in Philadelphia,
with prominent Quakers of that city, who
propose to assist the government in its deal
ings with the Navajoe Indians, by establish
ing and maintaining among them schools
and other civilizing institutions. It is ex
pected that the plans for this philanthropic
enterprise will shortly be agreed upon be
tween the Interior Department and the Qua
ker gentlemen alluded to.
“National Financks. —During the week
ending with Saturday, $1,596,000 were is
sued by the Treasury in certificates of in
debtedness, and for the same period $1i,749,-
000 were disbursed fore the redemption of
outstanding certificates. In the course of a
a few days about $10,000,000 of interest in
currency on the 7.30 loan will be paid.
Thirty-five lods of mail matter are daily
received at the Poßt Office iu Washington,
and ane qual amount is sent away, making
70 tons handled every '24 hours. The re

One Hundred Thousand Men Required by
Defeat of Maximilian's Forces at
New Orleans, Aug 7.
The Times’city of Mexico correspondent
of the 11th ult. says that the French organs
state that they will require one hundred
thousand more men to destroy the bands of
Juarists. The rising of the people daily takes
larger dimensions. Reports of French suc
cesses are unfounded.
Gen. Alvarez has just Inflicted a heavy
blow on the Imperialists at Yepalla, com
pletely routing them, taking three pieces of
artillery. Great disappoioment is felt at the
failure of the combined French and Imperial
forces against Negrete, in the pass of Buena
Vista. Cortena ’ reigns * supreme from the
gates of Mattamoras to Monterey.
The receipts of the government are some

The Vicksburg Herald of August 1, gives
the particulars of the explosion of the Joseph

by telegraph a few days since. The accident
occurred at Palmyra Lauding, twenty miles
below Vicksburg, on July 31, while the boat

The Cholera in the East. —A Trieste
paper gives the following account of the chol
era among the pilgiims at Mecca :
“The Mussulman fesWvals of the Kurban -
Bairam took place during the last twenty
days of May, when six hundred thousand to
seven hundred thousand pilgrims annually
assemble iu Mecca and upon Mount Ararat
to celebrate their pilgrimage with the usual
religious ceremouies. The mode of line, ut
terly opposed to all rules of ditetlc prudence,.
pursued by these crowded masses for ten or
fifteen days at holy places yearly entails a
numbered' diseases to which many are sacri
ficed. This year the cholera, or as
the government prefers to call jt choleri
ne, was added to the customary pests,
and is said to have carried off twen
ty thousand people at Mecca and upon
Gebel Ararat within the short space of two
months. Private accounts place the loss of
pilgrim fife at one hundred thousand—au es
timate obviously exaggerated, as these do
not even include the deaths by cholera. We
in Alexandria have no more exact details as
to this terrible drama, which made no extra
ordinary impression upon the pilgrims them
selves, who, in their religious fanaticism,
believe every one certain of Paradise who
dies during pilgrimage. The country being
at all times inaccessible to European medi
cal men the meagre reports we have are de
rived from a few Egyptian military surgeons,
ordered by the government to accompany
the pilgrims from Egypt.”

Will Jittntk Darts t* Tried Before a
Civil or BHUtaryWrlbsusal I
A Washington correspttident of the New
York News says:
“ I am preparefi to putMt rest all specula
tion concerning the trial of Jefferson Davis,
so far as it relates to a military commission.
I positively assert that President Johnson has
decided that Mr; Davis aall not be tried by
a military commission, notwithstanding he
has been persistently urg and to that course by
the Radicals, who thirit for more blood.
And, moreover, I feel p« fectly satisfied that
he will never be tried, bi I eventually will be
permitted to leave the country."
The Tribune having pronounced the above
“ pure guess-work, an&aot good guessing at
that," the editor of the News thus pointedly
“ The Tribune undertakes to throw doubt
upon the statement of our Washington dis
patch of a few days ago tonching the dispo
sition of Mr. Davis. We may observe, how
ever, that our cotempgjpry does not contra
dict the announcements©! that telegram with
absolute directness Be this, however, as it
may, we are in a position to assure that jour
nal, and the public generally, that the asser
tions of the dispatch are true, and to affirm,
as we do here editorially, that Mr. Jefferson
Davis will not be tried, if at all, otherwise
than by a civil court.

To keep a blessing away—
A blessing that tells like the dew from heaven
On the parched and thirsty ground :
And in loving much, because much forgiven,
My deeper peace is found.

But we’re children both in the eyes of One

She Is Propriety’s self, sitting there
With her bland fliQlle and her satisfied air.
“Cheerful!" What of It f She smiles when you smile ;
Lets yon the wearisome momeuta beguile ;
Takes your red roses and weaves into crowns ;
Lists while the voice of your flattery sounds :
"Cheerful !” do, provo her with shadows and frowns.
“Loved find loving!” She has a now ring,
Jewelled and costly, an exquisite thing;
Par too Imposing a token to hide,
Pledge of hep conquest, she wears it with pride ;
Pleased to be chosen as Luxury’s bride.
“Free from quick passion !” Her heart-beats are slow;
How sbonld the half-empty chalice o'erflow f
Pew are the feelings she has to restrain.
What does she know of the torturing pain
Os the racked heart and the agonized brain !
“Pattern for others!” What tempts her to stray
Where could she flnd a more sunshiny way v
Changing her path were to darkeu her hours;
Sliming means thistles, and saintliness flowers ;
Duty leads onward through vineyards and bowers.
Not that I Judge her ; Oh, bitter and stern
lessons. In future, her spirit may learu:
Nectar, by keeping, may change Into gall:
Angels turn demons when tempted to fall;
Uooduess untried is no goodness at all.
Not the frankincense and gold from the mine.
Not the sweet fragrance or dallilee’s wine.
Not the rteh ointment the penitent poured,
Not the bosanna's triumphant aecord—
Thorn-wreath and cross proved the love of the Lord.

will discontinue its sale of coin.
