Davis Tillson, Chief Commis sioner of the Frcedmen’s Bureau for the State of. Giorgia, has been invited by resolution to the members of the Convention on Riday night. T. CtSXff. HOWARD IN SAVAN NAH. HU ADDRESS TO THE FREEDNKN YESTERDAY. TU. of the Bureau Explained. THE NEW RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE FREEDMEN. They are Charged to make Contracts. THE WHITES NOT THElli ENEMIES. The Abandoned to be Restored to their Own nets, and all Bounties from the Govern ment to be Withdraws? Agreeably to tbo notice which appeared in tie papers of yesterday, Gen. Howard, Chief cf the Bureau of Freedmen, addressed a re fpeCtable assemblage of the colored people of this city, tast evening, at the 2d Baptist Church. Ho spoke in substance as follows -. The General commenced by saying that bo bad been assigned to tbe responsible position be occupied by tbe President, to superintend tbe development aud execution of tbe po.icy adopted by tbe Federal Government with reference to tbe Freedmen, and to relieve as •'ar as practicable tbe shock that must neces sarily follow tho sudden emancipation of the slaves, which comprehended iu its range tbe management of tbe abandoned lands, tbe education, as far as pracdcable, of tbe col ored children, and the relief of those whose actual necessities demanded it of the Gov ernment. | WitU regard to tlie question of labor, he ! informed them that the Government had set I them free forever, but it had not stopped work. Formerly they did not receive the ! earnings of their labor, these were now se cured to them. Heretofore they had families from whom they were often separated, this this would never be again. He urged them lo provide lor their families, not only to leed and to clothe them but to educate them. As many ot them were refusing to make la bor coutracts for the ensuing year under the vague notion that Government would do something tor them, he earnestly desired them to disabuse their minds in this particu lar, alsoq aud hence the necessity for their making contracts with the owners of the lands and stick to them in gooii faith. When the contract was made they were to un derstind that the employer was entitled to all their labor, and for which they should be paid fair and liberal wages. He notified them that tiio- military would in all proba bility, soon be removed, and that they must then look to the white residents for counsel and protection, until laws were passed se curing them tlie full eojoymentof ail their rights as freemen. He assured them that he did j not believe that tbo great mass of the | Southern people were unfriendly to them, but that they wero prepared to trust tbem, I kindly and honestly if the colored people j would meet them half way. He did not be lieve that the whites bad the least desire to oppress tbem, and be urged tbem to slay in tbe neighborhood, where they were, and to show by their good conduct'and habits of industry that they were worthy of their free dom. He advised them strenuously not to resort to the cities, as they could not support themselves there, and would suffer lor the necessary comforts of life. With regard to the abandoned lands of Georgia, he remarked that the Government had determined to restore them to their owners, as they were pardoned by the Exec utive of the uatiou. Tnat it would be un just in tlie Government to confiscate these lands lying generally on the-coast, when the people ol' the interior, who had been equally rebellious, were not treated in like manner, j That equality in the dispensation of justice i should be observed throughout the South, I without reference to locality or color, when there were no legal impediments in the way. If they wanted land they must go to work in good earnest, suve money, and make requir ed put chase in a regular way. He knew of a colored man who bad, by his own honest I industry, accumulated $15,000 iu the last four years. I Al.tiding to the subject ot education, be | assured tbem that much had, beeu done, and much more would be accomplished by both i ; Northern and Southern Committees for the education of colored children, aud that they must bd ambitious to do all in their power lin the same direction—that in order to enjoy I ibe blttsilogg of freedom aud make goodelu zeut they must be improved t»y education. | Tousbiag the matter of relief In various I ways here inline grauied by the Government, I he stated emphatically that be bad been in •triKte I by the War Department to grant reliet In future to tuoh only us were entirely Unable to help Uiuiusklws. All others must tor bjr NM and thilfiy Tta truly sensible sod Interesting remarks SAVANNAH, GEORGIA, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 27. 1865. of Gen. Howard, appeared to be in the high est degree acceptable to the intelligent por tion of his colored audience and to a consi derable number of our citizens, both mili tary and civil, who were attracted thither by the interest of the occasion and the high character of the distiogusbed speaker. Two Days Later Mail from - New York. The steamer Leo, which left New York on the 21st inst., arrived here yesterdey even ing. The Leo left New York iu company with the steamships Raleigh, Chase and Idaho for Savannah; the (Quaker City, for Charleston, aud the George Cromwell lor New Orleans. She kept company with the Quaker City and George Cromwell as far as Prying Pan Shoals, where they were on Monday night. At miduight lost sight ot both ships in a storm; lay to in a hurricane for thirty-six hours, split sails, etc. On Wednesday passed a lot of wrecked goods, chairs, etc., apparently cabin furniture. We ate indebted to Purser P. A. Slocum for our files of New York papers. European New. By the Scotia, with dates of the Bth inst. ' Nearly all the prominent men whose names were associated with the rebel cotton loan have now- denied their connection with that remarkable speculation. Secretary Reward’s letter to Mr. Adams, otH Minister in London, with respect to the Prioleau cotton bonds decision, continues the subject of hostile comment in England, though the French papers in the main ap prove of it. Cholera had spread to Paris. From Blexieo—celebration of the Birth day of tlic Republic. In the city of El Paso, President Juarez’s capital, the anniversary of the birth of the republic was celebrated on the Isth and 16th of September by the ringing of bells, firing of cannon, orations, illuminations, great enthusiasm among the people, a grand ball and ether cetemonies. Many American of ficers were present. The imperialists in Matuinoias had two splendid balls on the 1 Till aud 24th of September, In honor of Mexican independence and the birthday of General Meja, the commander there, which alsofwere attended by several United States officers, including Generals Steele and Weit zei. Six thonsand imperial troops were ex pected at Monterey on the 25th of Septem ber, to reinforce thoso on the Rio Grande. Maximilian, it is said, has issued a decree directing that no vessels be admitted into Mexican ports which cannot show proper papers from a consul of his empire in the port whence they sailed. THE NOIiTH CAROLINA CONVENTION. The Ordinance Prohibiting Slavery to he Snbmitted to the People. President Johnson Advises Re pudiation. The North Carolina- Convention unani mously adopted an ordinance submitting to a vote of the people the ordinances forever prohibiting slavery and declaring the seces sion ordinance null and void. An ordinance to scale down both the old and new debts of the State to a gold basis, consolidate them, aud issue new bonds in lieu of the old ones, was introduced aud laid over. It provides that none of the debts incurred by the State to aid the rebellion shall be recognized. A resolution requesting Congress to repeal the test oath imposed on the national legislators was introduced and also laid over. 'The Convention, after considerable discussion on the matter, has decided to ag.uu meet, after the conclusion of the present session, in May, 1806. Before adjourning the ordinance prevent ing the Legislature from assuming any por tion of the State debt contracted to aid the rebellion was passed. The Rsleigu papers have published a despatch to Governor Holden from President Johnson, in which the latter declares that every dollar of indebtedness in curred to assist the rebellion should be repu diated finally and torevef, aDd hopes that North Carolina will wash hdr hands of every thing that partakes in the slightest degree of the attempt to sever her connection with the Union. THE WIRZ TRIAL.. Tli« Argument for the Prosecution. Wiiz military commission met again yesterday, when the reading of the argu ment of Judge Advocate Chipman for the prosecution was commenced. Altogether, it consists of five hundred and fifteen manuscript pages, three hundred and fifteen of which were read during yesterday s s.-asion, leaving still two hundred pages to be gone through to day. It ranges over an extensive field, re plying to the objections which have been urged t*the jurisdiction of the court and an alyzing the immense mass oi testimony ad duced on the trial. Colonel Chipman divides his address into the four parts of a defence of military juris diction in such cases as this, an examination of the evidcuce and a portrayal of the hor rors of Anderaonville, an elucidation of the matter alleged conspiracy on the part of cer tain rebel officials to torture aud starve na tional soldiers to death, and a presentment of the guilt of Wirz, on all of which he ar gued at considerable length. Tbe responsi bility of Jeff. Davis, as the head of the rebel confederacy, for the sufferings endured by the captured defenders of the Union is in sisted upon. On the conclusion of the read ing of the argument the case will be subnflr ted to tbe members ot the court, who, after deliberating on it in secret and arriving at a decision, will transmit the result of their la bors to the Executive Department, and thus j end their connection with the matter. THE PEItUV CONGRESS. The Proceedings Still Secret. The Now York Herald of tbe 21st, says the proceedings of the Fenian Congress at Phila delphia are still enveloped iu comparative se crecy. Tbe secretaries affoffl only a brief outline of the business transacted, and that of a chancier whose publicaiion is not pre judicial to the objects of the fraternity. Dur ing yesterday, however, it was evident from the glad faces aud earnest hand-3hakings of the delegates that the Congress had decided upon some important measure, U lO develop ment of which is intimately coimectoU with the success of their plans. Funds are piom ised the movement in great abundance. The members of tbe Congress are personally to subscribe half a million of dollars. THE LATB OALH. Dot mottos of Shipping on Use New Eng land Coast. A tremendous gale prevailed during the day aud night ol'iViu 18tb, aud 19th iustaut; along tbe New England coast It wss very •evvre, and did much damage to tbe ship ping. We have already a list of between twelve and tweuly vessels of different cist- ses which suffered in some degree, one of them being sunk, some stranded, and others being Injured to a less extent. Some lives also were lost, though how many has not yet been positively ascertained. Fearful Hurricane iu tbe Indies. Files of late West India papers furnish us additional details of the terrific hurricane, heretofore noticed in our columns, which swept over some of those islands on the 6IU <>l last month. In Guadaloupe it was parli- I cularly severe. Houses were lifted from the ground, torn to pieces and blown iu frag ments to a considerable distance, and the air was filled with the dying debris. In one towu a hospital was blown down, and all Us inmates were either killed or wounded. Be tween two and three hundred persons altogether were lulled.the crops of the island were destroyed, scarcely a tree was left staudiug, and it is believed that many ves sels were stranded or sunk • The Piciric Kaii.boad.—This great enter prise is not dropped, though, owing to the greater importance of matters near at hand, we hear less ot it than would otherwise be the case. Engineers are at work on the Pa cific end, as well as on the route from Neva da eastward, and it is announced that their efforts to discover a practicable opening through the Sierra Nevada mountains have been finally crowned with success. This lo cation was all that remained before a very energetic movement began iu California.— | The Ilerra Nevada stretches. along the east ern boundary of the Stale, between Califor nia and Nevada, from Tulare county to Ore | goD. Its Southern extension runs into the coast tange. The Sierra is lofty, ragged aud inhospitable, with lew passes available lor railway use. The engineers now announce, however, that they have discovered a spot where they can construct a road from the summit ot the mountains to the Tucker river, on a grade not exceeding ninety feet per mile. The most sanguine bad expected one hundred and five feet. This discovery will be felt by the enterprise in a favorable manner, and will tend to make the construc tion earlier as well as easier. The opening leads naturally to Salt Lake city, which was a way station on the route originally pro posed, as it is for the mail road to-day. Those who have au interest iu this gigan tic undertaking,which daily seems to assume new strength and more substance, will be 1 glad to learn that so many months of cx ; ploration in an uncongenial region have been crowned with success aud that the grade is so much less thau was expected. The diffi culties to be encountered in the range thread ing Utah and Colorado are far inferior to those in the Sierra Nevada; and from Utah the work of construction is comparatively easy. It is probable that the discovery just made will give new file to the undertaking, and that au effort which is encouraged by both extremes of the country, and felt to be of paramount importance by all, wifi now he pushed more energetically. When we cou j uect what has been done in California, with , what is done and being done from the banks of the Mississippi westward, we have rea sons lor believing that, vast aa the effort is, it maj' yield beioro vigor and energy, and that We may soon hear of the more active pro gress oi the greatest engineering work ot the age —Philadelphia American. Shop Lifting. —Tho Atlanta New Era incurious a case of four females visitiug the stores in that city, one of whom was detected stealing, and Upon examination was found to hav6 concealed in a sack upon her person, three parrs of pants, four vestg, two hoop skirts, three belts, two pairs of garters, fourteen yards delaine, one head-dress, one card of buttons, two pairs of shoes, and three waterfalls.
