SAVANNAH. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 14. IW*.
FOR LtH Al. RITTERS SEF. THIRD PACE.
HOW TO OBTAIN THE HERALD KECi-
We often hare complaint* from realdeoU of Savan
nah and Hilton Head th J they are not able always to
obtain the Fraai.c. The demand is sometimes so
gresAas to exhaust an Edition very soon afVr ttr. issue,
and those who wish to have the litm.u.n regnlarly.
should sub“<ribe for it. We have faithful carriers iu
Savannah and at Hilton Head, and through them we
always serve regular subscribers first.
Prepare for Winter—A Word to the Poor
of Savanna It.
By the cool damp weather of yesterday
we were reminded that in a short time we
will have reached the season when fires and
heavy clothing are indispensable, and when
general house-hold expenses are materially
increased. How many families are there in
this city who now live closely up to their in-,
comes; and who are making provision for
contingencies in the dead of winter? Doubt
less, there are many. It is a singular fact
that with all tl>e examples of suffering which
we have had in Savannah for several winters
past, as the result of pover’y, there is a con
siderable class of our people who manifest
no disposition to prepare for the proverbial
'* rainy day,” and who complacently con
sume their earnings as last as they accrue
'We will not say that such families almost
deserve to suffer, but that they are culpably
' improvident cannot be denied.
The condition of Savannah during the last
three years has been such that the perceut
y age of unavoidable suffering from poverty
was necessarily large. But prior to the war,
as we have been informed, there was plenty
of work to do and wages were remarkably
good, yet every winter found whole families
piuched by want and destitution. Much of
thi buffering might be and ought to be
obviated by judicious economy in the warm
months, when household expenses are com
paratively light. There is but little coal or
wood to buy at that season, light and cheap
clothing answers the purpose, articles of ta
ble consumption are comparatively cheap,
and an excellent opportunity is offered for
saving a portion of the weekly income. But
many, we have reason to believe, fail to take
advantage of these circumstances. The
merciless and exacting rigors ol winter find
them with nothing ahead; and in the event
of sickness, stoppage of employment, or any
of the other contingencies to which they ate
liable, the spectre of want appears at incir
The value of economy seems not to be un
derstood by this class. They appear to have
no conception of the fact that economy is
the world’s real treasury. Yet so it is, and
if all people would appreciate and live in
accordance with this simple tiutli, there
would be little suffering, as we sincerely be
lieve, from poverty. But why will not those
in our own city, who know from sad ex
perience what poverty is, make some pro
vision to guard against it ? If they believe
a physical enemy to be compassing their
destruction, they would be on the alert, most
unquestionably, to guard against the danger;
but want is an enemy that has no mortal
rival, and yet they make no provision for
repelling its advances. There is still some
little time leit in which this class might pro
vide for the winter months,and why will they
not taku advantage of their opportuni
ty. If such could only be made to realize
the importance of husbanding their resources
In the hour of plenty, they would seldom
feel the sharp sting of poverty, or he pinch
ed by want in the winter season.
We would likewise tender a word of
friendly admonition to our colored popula
tion. The number of this class in this city
has been rapidly increasing since its fiist oc
cupation by the Federal array last winter,
and the consequence is that many ol them
are without homes that can be made iu the
slightest degree comfortable during the ap
proaching winter. We know, also, that
many of them are without permanent em
ployment and art- now suffering at times for
something to eat and to wear, Has it oc
curred to this unfortunate class of freed
men that still greater want and destitution
await them dming the cold months if they
uhould fail to improve their pecuniary con
dition in the short lime inteivening
between this and the Ut oi" December? And
vs there any certainty tuut they will be able to
secure employment in the city, ftie compen
sation for which will be adequate to supply
them with food and clothing for the winter?
Alauy of our most intelligent citizens are of
The opinion that there is not, and that, unless
they abandon the city and seek employ
ment, in the country, where labor is needed
and desired, and for which liberal wages will
toe paid, an inconceivable amount of desti
tution and suffering will be experienced. It
will be folly to expect relief from the hands
of charity, when the liberality ol our citizens
will be taxed to Us utmost limit to provide
for those who, from one cause and another,
are unable to help themselves.
We commend these suggestions to our col
ored population for their benefit, witii the
hope that they will receive prompt and ear
nest consideration, that action may be had,
and much misery prevented before it is too
There are many intelligent colored ineu iu !
this city who will appreciate the significance !
of me tacts we have submitted, as well as 1
the motives that have induced us to comment
upon them with so much caruutwiss, and
upon them will devolve in purl the obligation
to originateprecautionary measures to prevent
the occurrence of a calamity the bare con
templation of which is enough to move the
most unfeeling heart.

The Boston Courier of the StU instant
says Tlie annual meeting of the Amoskeag
Manufacturing Company and the Man
chester Priut AYorks were held at the count
ing-rooms of the eompunies, in Mancheeter,
on AVednesday. The Amoskeag. we be
lieve, has a larger capital than any other
company in New England. Although only
a small portion ol’ its machinery has been
running, it lias earned and divided ten per
cent, on its capital of $3,000,000 during thf
year ending June 30, and, besides a reserved
working capital of $1,900,000, has a
surplus of half a million of dollars. A con
siderable portion of the machinery has been
recently set in motion, and it is now operat
ing about forty thousand out of its one
hundred thousand spindles.
The Manchester Print AYorks did a very
large business during the war. For the
year ending May 31st, its sales amounted to
$6,000,000. The profits, however, were
not so large as in the year previous, befog
only thirteen per cent, on its capital of S*l,-
800, 000. The dividends for the year were,
however, twenty-four per cent., the re
served profits having been drawn upou to
t ,il<e extent of about SIBO,OOO. It still has a

SLAVERY, or involuntary servitude is practically
abolished in Georgia The Pmclam ation ot tho
President, oi the United States having given tvecdont
to every slave, and the oath of amnesty and the con
ditiona of pardon, forbid any attempt at its revival in
any form or condition.
ihe gieat mass of the Agricultural Population of
the State has been released from their obligation to
cultivate the soil, except by their own volition, and
it must be apparent to the judicious oljserver. how
ever much o be regretted, that the voluntary labor
of the newlv freed population will not for the present
at least, supply the deficiency of labor.
The withdrawal of nearly three hundred thousand
able-bodied persons to a greater or leas extent lroin
their usual vocations, hr.? created a void which must
be filled or ihe lands of the State wiilreui/Ln untilled,
her great resources undeveloped and her future pros
The remedy, and the only remedy for this condition
of affairs consists iu the immigration of a hnrdy and
industrious white population, to supply places ol
those who cannot be compelled to work and whose
depositions do not incline them to greater labor than
is actually necessary to supporr. life.
To such immigrants', no Btotc offers greater induce
ments than the State of Georgia. Extending from
the Athmtic Ocean to the Blue JKige, it embraces eve
ry variety of soii and climate. Mhe HavmmahH of the
coast, the rolling country of the interior, and The
mountains of the northern part of the State afford
opportunities for the cultivation ol almost evtiry pro
duct of tropical or temperate latitudes.
The grape Is grown with great Fuccess in many
parts of the State and its cultivation has only been
limited by the want of persons skilled in the Knowl
edge of the vine and the mode of preparing its yield
The State is elso rich in gold and other minerals, and
nothing but energy and the application of proper ma
chinery is wanting to the development of those hid
The raising of sheep of the finest breeds has been
carried on with success, and the vast ranges of uncul
tivated land nftord excellent pastures for cattle and
nil kinds of stock—-rice, cotton, tobaccS, corn, wheat,
rye, oats, sugar cane, the grape and all species of
fruits find theii appropriate soil and climate within
onr extended limits.
The numerous rivers and smaller streams taking
their rise in the mountains and running through the
State into the Atlantic and the Gulf in their gradual
descent furnish water power unfailing in any season
and capable of putting into operation any kind of
The area of ihe State contains upwards of thirty
millions ot acres, or which not more than .one-third
has been cultivated, and the virgin forest of tne wild
lands afford an inexhaustible supply of lumber which
formed a heavy item of the exports of Georgia prior
to our late difficulties. These lands, which maybe
bought at comparatively low rates, will give to the
new settler h homestead on which he may erect his
rooftree and settle lor life on inhabitant au<i in time a
citizen of the repubi c.
In view oi the foregoing facts the undersigned pro
pose to organize a Company to be called the ‘’Georgia
Land and Emigration Company,tne principle office
to be located in Savannah, wl;h the intention of ap
plying for a charter ut the next session of the Lcgisln
lure; the capital of said Company to be five hundred
thousand dollars in twenty tiionnand of twenty-five
dollars each; said company to be organized by ihe
choice oi a President and Directors when nil the
shares shall have been subscribed.
The object of the Company is to induce and afford
aid to the immigration into the State of Georgia of
honest, sober and reliable persons with their families |
to become purchasers of and settlers on lands not now \
in use, or to be bn farms or plantations on i
which the freed men reliise to work, or to follow their
trades, or become house servants.
The advantages to be deri < ct as this present iufic
tuie by the influx of such a class of population, arc
manifest. To the large landholder it offers the pros
pector selling his land or funning it out on advanta
geous terms. To the Planter and Farmer if will sup
ply that labor, in th * absence of which, the owner
ship of the soil is a burthen, and to all persons in
those classes of life whose requires or whose
position permits the use of tue labor of others, it ol
iords the opportunity of obtaining such labor of
n reasonable rate, and of a relta hie character. So
al3o to the State will great benefit accrue; munv of
the immigrants may bring wealth with them, all will
bring -kill or industry, which is the source of wealth,
and this infusion of ue.v life will, we trust, in progress
of time, restore Georgia to her original state of pros
The Company wo beli(r*e—will be, not only self-sn*-
tfdning. but a source of profit to the stockholders.—
The fees paid by those emigrants who can afford it,
lor tactions as to their setUem’.m . the commissions
paid by the owners of lauds for the snip, or leasing oi
tlv'ir lands to the immigrants, nnd by persons to
whom laborers are furnished, the profits to Im=* derived
from a Savings Institution to take care of the funds
and profits of the emigrants, which it i» proposed to
connect with the Company, will, wc expect, enable
the Company to declare such dividends as will make
it remunerative to those who subscribe simply as an
investment. But independently of pecuniary con
sideration, as citizens of ihe State of Georgia who
have an interest in its future welfare, wo ask your as
sistance in this matter, incur opinion of vital impor
tance. We may not leave the land of our birth, let
us make it once more a land of promise.

tlc (or Double) Spriisg’ Skirt.
THIS Invention consists of Duplex (ortvroj Eliptic
Parc P.cllned Steel Springe, ingeniously braided
1 ightiy and firm!? together, edge to edge, making the
toughest, most flexible, clasti- and durable Spring
ever used. They seldom heud or break like the sin
gle Springs and consequently preserve their perfect
and beautiful shape more than twice as long as any
Single Spring Skirt that ever has or can be made.
The wonderful flexibility and great comfort and
pleasure to any lady wearing Ihe Duplex Elliptic Skirt
will be experienced particularly ir, all crowded Assem
blies, Operas, Carriages. Railroad Cars, Church Pews,
■ Arm Chairs, for Promenade and House Dress, as the
i Skirt, can be folded when in use to occupy a small
i place as eisily and conveniently as a Silk or Muslin
I A lady having enjoyed the pleasure, comfort and
! great convenience of wearing the Duplex Elliptic
j Steel Spring Skirt for a single day will never atter
j wards willingly dispense w ith their use. For children,
I misses end* oting ladies they are superior to alt oth
The Hoops are covered with 2 ply double twisted
thread and will weal- twice as long as the single yarn
covering which is used on ali Single Steel HoopSkii ts.
The three hottom rods on every Skirt are also Double
Steel, and twice or double covered to prevent the cov
ering irom wearing off the rods when dragging down
stairs, stone steps, Ac., which they are'constantly
subject to when In use.
All are made of the new and elegant Co.fled Tapes,
and are the best quality in every part, giving to the
wearer the mos; graceful and perteet shape possible
and arc unquestionably the lightest, most desirable,
comfortable and economical skirt ever made.
