Gen. Fullerton's Administration of
Freedman Affairs in Louisiana.— Gen. Ful
lerton, of tlie Freedmen's Hureau in New Or
leans, lias issued a circular sus|ienditig the
collection of the tax for the support of ne
?;ro schools, levied by Gen. Hanks and en
orced by Mr. Conway, and directing lists to
be made out. The True Delta says :
To Gen. Fullerton is due a major share of
the gratitude of our citizens for this timely
relief; for although other high authorities
were interesting themselves in the subject,
it was the representations of the General,
which were forwarded to Washington that
induced President Johnson to telegraph
Gov. Wells of the rtmovil of the burden
fronabhr shoulders. Such, wejare credibly
informed, is the case; and upon the au
thority of the President's dispatch, the or
der has been issued.
. The General has also issued a circular re
moving the arbitrary and cramping rules
laid down by Bauks' famous “Labor Order,”
and permitting the planter and laborer to
form contracts to suit their mutual interests
and wishes. The price of the workman s
services, the number of hours per day, and
the number of days per week that he de
sires to labor, are matters for him to settle
with hiß employer and the only interference
permitted the officers of the Bureau is to act
as arbiter when a contract is voluntarily left
to them for decision by both parties. It is,
however, their duty to require all contracts
to be filled in their offices and to correct any
advantages taken by unprincipled men of
[From the Toronto Freeman, November 9.)
The Indemnity Question More Serious
THAN THE FbNIAN MOVEMENT. —We CODfeSS
to more apprehension of disturbance from
the Government of the U. S.. that from
the Fenians. There may be some trouble
from that quarter, and, should it arise, the
Fenians, as a matter of course, and very
naturally, would be ulalized. The claims
which have been made from Washington
upon the Imperial Government for cornpen
sation'for losses inflicted upon American
commerce by the Alabama, during the pro
fress of the late war, may lead to difficulty,
t is to be hoped the matter will be amica
bly adjusted. Should it unfortunately hap
pen that serious complications will arise,
and that they must be referred to the arbit
rament of the sword, then, indeed, we may
have sufficient cause for apprehension. The
time that would be chosen to send over the
frontier an army of occupation would be
when we are least guarded or prepared;
wbeu the means of procuring from England
reinforcements and supplies will be cut off
with our ice-bound channels of communica
tion. It Will be then left for us to make the
best terms we can and sui render at discre
tion. It were wiser and more prudent for
us to look to such a contingency than be oc
cupying our thoughts with the bugbear of
a Fenian invasion.
Southern Literary Items. —Old Colonel
Robert Tausill, formerly of the United Stales
marine corps, latterly a colonel of a Virginia
regiment and an inspector on General Whit
ing’s staff, has published a book on the
causes of the overthrow ot the Confederate
Government. It is described as highly lum
inous, original, witty and eutertainiug.
A New Orleans Arm. Francis Bonvain &
Cos., propose to establish a publishing house,
from which the productions of uative authors
may be issued as cheaply and as neatly as
can be done at the North. The first book is
sued will be anew edition of the “History
of Louisiana,” by Charles Gayarre.
The Honorable Charles Gayarre, a distin
guished Louisiana scholar and politician,au
thor of a History of Louisiana, and for many
years Secretary of State of that State, has
published a comedy in two acts, entitled
“Dr. Bluff of Russia; or the Emperor
Nicholas and the American Doctor.” The
New Orleans Picayune tliiDßs that it would
be very successful on the stage.
The Alleged Attempt to foison Wirz.—
Mr. Lewis Schade, Wire's junior counsel, is
out in a letter, in which he pronounces the
account of the attempt of Mrs. Wirz to
poison her husband an infamous lie from be
§ inning to end. He says that on the 29th
ay of October, the day on which the al
leged attempt was made, Mrs. Wirz was in
Kentucky and not iu Washington, and ac
companies his statement with letters from
Wire s wife and daughter to prove it. Theac
account ol the attempted poisoning was obtain
ed from General L. C. Baker, who is t.he well
known detective of the War Department, by
Mr Wakemao, a New York sbort-haod re
porter, who turnisbed it to the New York
press. It is proper to add that the publie
put very little confidence in the poisoning
South Carolina and the Direct Tax.—
The Secretary of the Treasury has a letter
from the Governor of South Carolina asking
that that State have the privilege of assum
ing the direct tax levied by Congress, and
that the same may be paid in South Carolina
bonds. He alleges that the State is much
impoverished and cannot meet the taxes im
mediately. No action has been taken on the
letter by the Secretary of the Treasury.
