We took occasion last evening to converse with several of onr leading merchants re specting the fall trade, and were pleased to learn that, there are many and most cheering indications of returning prosperity in Savan nah, as well as in other portions of the State. The trade and commerce of this Ctv begins to exhibit unmistakable indica tions of a healthy and vigorous reaction.— iudeed, in spite of the many drawbacks, at no time during the last ten years has much more activity in the sl.ippii g line been ob aerved than Bay strett is n<>w presenting.— A large number of st< am boats and sail-ves sels crowd our wharves, and are busily en gaged in receiving and discharging freights. An endless s roces-ion of waggons, drays and cans, he ivi y lad. ned with .all the various articles of commerce, saluie the ear with their incessant din. lodeeed every thing begins to assume the appearance of those happy days anterior to the civil war, when the trade ofSa vanuah annually awoke about the Ist of Octo ber from Its summer slumber. Audwhat is still more satisfactory, the trade is on a sound fooling ; for it is based upon the interchange and actual delivery of the products aud c ap’es of all sections of our State and Flor ida for greenbacks and merchandize. We do not think that this acivity is spasmodic, or that it will prove temporary. The extraordinary activity and magnitude of business throughout tuis great country at the present lime is far beyood any anticipa tions that had been entertained of it in "any quarter. The enlargement seems to be in every branch of activity, iu the importation and jobbing of all varieties of goods, and manu tacluring industry and mechanic work. It has already started steamboat lines—many of them entirely new—to nearly every avail able port on the vast seaboard of tbe South ern States. Tue Northern cities are receiv ing. in unprecedented quantity, the cotton of the Souths and the indications from Wes'ern Europe, say tbe New York papers, are that our people w ill find market for heavy expor tations of tbe cereklb of the West. The South was swept bare of every sort of goods during the war, and its working machinery, its railroads, its rolling stock, &c. were in great part destroyed. All that was left it were its staple crops; but as it is now proven to possess these in heavy quan tity, they will enable it to supply itself witli everything else. As regards foreign commerce, there are the same reasons for anticipating its healthy,reg ular and profitable condition, as apply to in , tereectional trade, namely, an approximate correspondence between the value.oi exports and imports. We learn from au intelligent citizen oi New York city, no* on a visit to this qi.ty, tnat the itnpoitatioi s .bus far in the new fiscal year are not equal to the demand, and considerate drauguts continue to be made on the stock of merchandize in bend. In one respect the trade promises to be safer than ever before. The financial crisis of '67 and the political crisis of ’6l killed credit, and the bl-st wav is to let it stay dead. With it the tendency to overtrade is often mischievous and dangerous; but in the cash system the more trade the better, as long as k represents the legitimate ex changes of producers and consumers.— •So keep the green backs flying, ami one of these days, if public affairs are con ducted properly, gold and silver will iingle musically as of yore. To recover iu due season their former prosperity, the people of the South must eschew political excitement and contention, end cultivate in a patriotic spirit that mu tuality of kindness and lriendly assistance always characteristic ot au enlightened and Cdriotiau people, when struggling to recover from tue cjqpiug effects of a national ca lamity. The uiau who, whether in public or private life, attempts, eveu indirectly, to in flame the public m.ud in times like the present, deserves to he o-traeised from the commu nity, as a moral incendiary, seeking to de stroy its peace and pro.-perity. God forbid that the political suite and confusion which existed beiore the war and convulsed the country into the late sanguinary conflict, and for which reckiuss and unprincipled editors and politicians ate ttspousible, should ever be felt and seen agaiu by this impoverished and Uearutricaen people. That such a ca tastiopbu may net be repeated will be due mainly tc the solemn determination on the part ot every g -od citizen to discountenance the mischievoua machinations of political tricksters in pursuit ot office, and the evil influences of insane fanatics who thirst ter excitement aud notoriety. General Slocum commenced tbe political campaign in Neuv York on Monday last by an open and manly speech at Syracuse. He gave a clear statement ol the present condi tion of the South, as regards both the white and black population, bated upon his own personal observation; maintained that the Southern people cordially accept tbe verdict of the war as conclusive aud binding, and strongly advocated the policy of President Johnson, looking upon it as tbe only safe, wise and practical policy that could be adopted. Tne Mississippi militia controver »y was fully explained.

Davis Tillson, in com mand ol the Bureau of Refugses, Frcedmeu aud Abandoned Lands for the State of Geor gia, setting forth the rules to be observed iu this department in the business relations to be established between employers and freed men. It will be obseived that while the freedmen are fully protected, the just rights and interests of the employer are not left un guarded. A faithful compliance on the part of plauters and other employers with the re quirements of the Bureau will, under exist ing circumstances, be promotive ot the gen eral weliare ot both the employers aud the. lreedmen. The latter are given plainly to understand that they will not be subsisted in idleness or protected in acts of lawless inso leuct and insubordination to the laws, while the former are assured that they will be re quired to aet in good faith and to religiously comply with just and equitable contracts.— AU good citizens will lend a cheerful sup port Id the efforts ol Gen- Tillson to re-estab lish relations of mutual interest, confidence and security, between capital aud labor, iu dispensible alike to the* general and indivi dual prosper ity of our section A On cat Hotel at Central Park, New York.— The plot ol ground bounded by Fifty ninth and Sixtieth streets, and Filth aud Madison avenues, New York, has been purchased, it is repotted, by the proprietor of the New York Hotel, Mr. Hiram Cranston, ior the purpose of erecting a magnificent hotel, which shall cost, with the ground, about two million dollars.

To prevent starvation and death among the freed people during Hie ranidly approach' ing winter, officers and agents of this Bureau will make immediate and vigorous efforts to provide all treed people who may be out ot employment witn oppormoiiie? lor labor win-re fair compensation aud kind treatment will be secured to them. Thb is the only practicable aud comprehensive plan of pro viding for their necessities, and to this all homes, asylums, hospitals or other modes of furnishing relief will be regarded as subsi diary ami for temporary use only. 2d. Fh aii tiie large cities, and where practicable in Sab-Districts, a census will be taken of the lreed people, showing the name, present and former residence, sex, age. oc cupation. value of property aud condition, viz: whether able bodied, decrepid or per manently incapable ot self-support This can be done by intelligent soldiers de tailed for tbe purpose, with very sligut ex pense to tbe government. 3d. Officers and Agents of the Bureau w ill invite all persons iu their sub-Di>trlcts w .tiling labor to make known tbe fact, to gether with tbeir address, or name of agent liear.-r ot access, and a full statement ot the number and kind of persons wanted—the kind of employment and tbe compensation otiired —whieb will be kept on file in tbe office, or entered upon a book suitable for the purpose. Intelligence offices established by priva'e parties, if mauaged honestly, may be encouraged and used as auxiliaries Whenever it shad appear that there is mor.. o.- /ess labor than can tiud profitable employment in any sub-District, the fact will in made known at. this office, to the end that the needed distribution may be se cured. 4th. Rations will uot be issued, or other aid given, to able bodied refugees or freed people who are offered or can find opportu nities to labor for their own support, and who neglect or refuse to do it. Only such persons of either class as have sufficient means, or who ate so permanently employed as to make it probable that they will be able to provide for tbeir own wants through tbe coming winter, will be allowed to remain in or about cities and towns, but must be com pelled, it necessary, to go to the country and accept places of labor tound by tbemseives, or tor them, by offices or agents of the Bu reau. sth Unfortunately, there is a widespread belief among tbe heed people of this State that at Christmas there is to be a distribution of property among them, and under this im pression they are refusing to make contracts for the coming year. Aii officers and agents of this Bureau are directed, and other officers of tiie army throughout the Slate, are ear nestly requested to exert themselves to con vince the freed people that they are utterly mistaken, and that no such distribution W’il take place at Christmas, or at any other time, and to induce them to enter into con tracts now, that the}' may not, at the end of the year be in a condition io entail severe ' suffering on themselves, their families, and ; upon tbe communiiv. 6th. Contracts for this year however ; made, verbal or otherwise, will not be inter fered wiih, except to compel, if necessary, , both parties to comply in good faith with their agreements, and to settle disputes when J they may arise. Conti acts for next year will : b« made iu writing. The form of contract | usually adopted reads as follow's ; "Know ml men by these presents, that——- : of the county of Stgte of held aud j firmly bound io the United States of Ameri ca iu the sum of dollars, for the payment | of which biud heirs, executors, ad- j ministrators firmly by these presents in this j contract • That to furnish to tbe persons I whose names are subjoined, (freed laborers,) quarters, fuel, substantial and healthy ra j lions, all medical attendance ami supplies iu j case ot sickuess, and the amount set oppo site, their respective names per month during the coutinuatiou of the contract ; the laborers to be paid in full before the final disposal of the crop which is to be raised by them on plantation, in the county of- State of . | j j RATES OF PAY RER MONTH. ; No. 1 Names, j Age. | Dolls | Cents. | !. I ! 1 j__j _ i This contract is to commence with this date and close with the year. Given in duplicate ai this day of 18(1 . Witness. Superintendent of District. Registered at 186 . But this may he modified to meet the in dividual wants, wishes and circumstances of the contracting parties, who can make any trade or agreement that is satisfactory to themselves, and so long as advantage is not taken of the ignorance of the freed people to deprive them of a fair and reasonable com pensation for their labor, officers of the Bu reau in this District will not interfere, but on the contrary will give aid, encouragement aud assistance in making contracts without cnarging any fee or imposing any other burden. The Bureau reluses to fix# price for labor or allow ivto be a tone by any com munity or combination of people, but leaves labor, like any other commodity, to sell it self, in the open market to the highest bid der. Iu case the employers’ circumstances are such as to make it doubtful whether or not they will have the means necessary to enable them to comply with their part ol the contract, good and sufficient sureties to the bond will be required, or wages will be se cured by a lieu on the crops or land. These contracts must be made in duplicate and approved bv an officer of the Bureau, or nearest Provost Marshal, who should also, if possible, witness the Signature of all the liarties and explain to them the terms, con ditions aud probable results of the contract. In all cases the officer will inform the parties that having of their own free will joined in the contract, they will be compelled itneces- i sary to comply in good faith with its terms | abil conditions. They will especially im- i press upon the laborer that he is to work ] under the direction of his employer, to be industrious and faithful, aud not to leave the plantation or place of his employment, with out permission, unless he is treated with cruelty. Parents are responsible for their childten. the children tor their aged and decrepid parents, and must labor lor their support ; and in making contracts this fact must be taken ’mto consideration, thereby providing lor a large class of persons who would other wise become a burden upon tbe community or Government. Persons who refuse or neglect to make written contracts lor next year with the freed people employed by them," will oe required, should any dispute arise as to the compensa - tion to be allowed, to pay tbe highest wages given for the same kind of labor iu the neigh borhood or section of country. 7th. Officers and agents of the Bu reau will on no account fail to protect the freed people in their just rights as set forth in the laws of Congress'and the Proclamations ofihe President of the United States, aud for this purpose will, if necessary, call on the nearest uulitaiy commander ior aid, in com- I piiuuce with Gen. Order 102. C. 8., from the 1 War Department. At the same time they j will not allow the freed people to practice j any wrong or injustice on their employers, nr on society. They will remember that it is | ibe chief object of tue Bureau to do simple justice to all persons, while or black—to aid to the utmost in securing to the employer permanent aud reliable labor, and in restore iug the State to its former condition of peace and prosperity.

Let us adhere to what is nominated in the national bond. To go be yond it is to court disaster for no practical, nay for no theoretical good. Above all, let us'avoid attempting to lorce upon tbe South ern States what we are now once more taught wo cannot, even with our better in formed colored people, do ourselves at our own homes. Speaking of the vote in Connecticut, the Hartford Times says : A remarkable and significant feature of the election ou Monday was the unanimity of the soldiers' vote The returned veterans of the war, bronzed in years of toilsome marches and scarred in many battles, voted very nearly unanimously against the proposition for negro suffrage.

A NOBLE PURPOSE AND A Glorious Result I H. There are § c many roads to fame and fortune as there were gateways to ancient Thebes. Your am bitious warrior is for carrying his war with the eabre ; your aspiring politician for scheming his way by intrigue and consummate art. But there Is one grand broad patli to the goal, along which nothing base can travel. It is the path set apart for the march of talent, energy 7 , and noble purpose and though full of obstacles, it contains none that a brave man cannot surmount. This fact has been exemplified in innumerable instances, but In few more forcibly than in the rise and progreas of DR. HOOFLAND’S GERMAN BITTERS.

Truly vour friend, THOMAS B. FLORENCE D From Rev. W. D. Sefgfried, Pastor of Twelfth Baptist Church. Philadelphia, December 26, 186 X Messes. Jones & Evans, Gentlemen :—I have recently "been laboring under tbe distressing effects of iadigewtiou accompanied by a prostration ol the nervous avr>tem. Numewus rem edies were recommended by mends aud some ol them tested, but wi.hout relief. Your Hoofliand’a German Bitters were recommended by persons who had tried them, and whose favorable mention of the Hitters In duced me also to try them. I must confess that 1 hud au :iversion to patent medicines, from tue *-thousand and one’* quacK ••Bitters,” whose only aim seems to oe so palm off sweetened aud drugged liquor upon th© community, iu a sly way; and the tendency of which, 1 fear, is to make muuy a confirmed drunkard. Upon learning that yours was really a raediciual preparation I took it with happy effect. Its action was not only upon the stomach, bat upon the ner vous system, was prompt and gratifying.
