SAVANNAH. MONDAY, DECEMBER U, 1866.
We pub isb Ibis inomiug tbe message r s
PresiJinl Johnson to Congress, with fuli
digests of three other important documents,
viz the report of the Secretary of War, and
tbe report of Gen. Grant to tire Secretary o 1
War. Although in possession of the Mes
sage and Reports at a sufficiently early hour
yesterday, to have issued them in an extra
yesterday evening, we refrain from so
doing, in deference to the well known dislike
ot our people to having the stillness of the
t>abbath broken by the shouting of news
boys. The message of the President will
commend itself to our readers as a clear and
manly exposition of the policy ot reconstruc
tion which has won Mr. Johnson so many
friends at the South and haters at t..e North,
and as affording a gratifying view of the
prospective unity and happiness of the coun
try under his admistration of public affairs
The accompanying reports are of the first
importance, and will be read with interest.
The Legislature.— A speeial dispatch to
the Republican confirms the opinion ex
pressed by our special correspondent at
Milledgeville, that the Legislature would
probably take a recess until the 15th of next
month, ft was decided in the House on
Saturday to adjourn on the 15th inst. to tbe
15th proximo. A dispatch was received
from President Johnson congratulating tbe
Legislature upon the adoption of the amend
ment to the Constitution prohibiting slavery.
THK LAWTON AND LIVE OAK OAII.
1 HOAD SUGGESTION'S TO THE ME II
The Branch Road, connectine th 6 Georgia
and Florida systems of Internal Im
provement, intersecting the former at Law
ton, on the Atlantic and Gulf Road, and
the latter at Live Oak, on the road connect
ing Tallahassee and Lake city, about forty
five miles in length, was completed in De
The grading and collection of the cross
ties had been finished several months ante
rior to the date of its final completion, per
' haps about the month of June, when the pro
gress of the work was suddenly checked by
the inability of the projectors of the enter
prise, to obtain the amount of rails required
for that portion of the road extending from
the Georgia fine to the Florida terminus, a
distance of twenty-two miles.
It was at this critical period that the Com
missary Department at Richmond, in a laby
rinth of trouble created by the question ol
supplies for the Confederate armies, was
vised that a large amount of corn and other
articles of subsistence might be readily ob
tained in Florida, if adequate means ol trans
portation could be provided by the Govern
ment. This important information suggested
at unce to the War Department, the impor
tance of an early consummation of the con
nection to be effected by the completion of this
branch. But where, and how, to obtain the
amount of railroad iron necessary to accom
plish it, was with Mr. Sedden, as with the
Directory, an inquiry more easily propound
ed than answered. There was scarcely an
idle rail to be found in all the length and
breadth of the Confederacy.
Iu this embarrassing dilemma, the Secretary
was constrained to resort to the only alter
native left that could work a speedy solu
tion of the difficulty. And that was to re
move the some other road which,
owing to the casualties of war, was .of no
practical utility, for the time being, to the
Government or to the communities inhabi
ting the country over which it passed. His
attention had been called to the fact by Gov.
Milton of Florida, that a considerable
portion of the Florida Road, extending from
Fernandina to Cedar Keys, had been render
ed entirely useless by the occupation of its
eastern and western termini, by detachments
of Federal troops. Upon the receipt of this
information, an order, baaed upro military
necessity, was issued for the reuliT.il af so
much ot the iron of this road as would com
plete the equipment of the connecting branch;
which was executed in due time, notwith
standing the numerous obstacles thrown in
the way of its execution by the active and
persistent opposition of President Yulee and
Since the collapse of the Confederacy and
the inauguration of military government in
Florida, Gen. Finnegan, as the legal repre
sentative of the stockholders of the Florida
Road, has been indefatigable in his efforts to
iuduce tho military authority to enforce the
restitution of the iron taken in conformity
with the order of the Confederate Govern
Recent Florida papers contain the announce
ment that the efforts of the General have
been crowned with success, and that, in com
pliance with the mandate of Gen. Foster, the
rails are be'mg rapidly moved back.
We have given this brief historical sketch,
that the business men of Savannah may un
derstand folly the general character and pre
sent condition of an enterprise in which’their
individual interests, as well as the commer
cial wealth of Savannah, are most deeply in
We have more than once demonstrated in
these columns by statements of fact and just
argumentation that to make commercially
tributary to our city the largest and most
pioductivc portion of our sister State, it was
only necessary to establish the community of
interests which would inevitably follow the
completion of the Branch Road to which we

greatly, fear that, in consequence of ihe’pro
liable Inability, at present, ot the stockhold
ers of the Branch Road to purchase the re
quired amount of rails for the gap created in
the manner we have stated, the long desired
• omiectlon will be postponed, perhaps for an
indefinite period. A similar apprehension we
know to bo prevalent among the large and iutei!

however, they are doomed to disappoint
men!, owing to tbe now unfinished condition
ot the connecting branch.
In view of wbat we hsve stated, we sub
mit to tbe merchants ot this city tbe import
ant inquiry: wbat shall be done by them to
acilitate an early supply of iron necessary to
complete the unfinished link in tbe brokeu
chain of direct commercial intercourse with
tbe people of Florida? Railroad iron is one
of the articles that cannot be purchased on
credit. The stockholders have not the
money jo purchase what is wanted for lue
twenty miles of unfinished road. Does it not,
therefore, devolve upon them to leudrr a loan
of a portion ol their surplus capital, to iusure
tbe immediate completion of an enterprise
which, when completed, will contribute so
largely to the advancement of their individual
interests and the prosperity of their growing
city. We feel assnred that it is only neces
sary to to throw out this single suggestion of
duty to secure their attention to a subject

Ahrivalof Maj. Gen. Howard.— Major
General O. O. Howard, Chief of the Freed
men’s Bureau, arrived in this city from Beau
tort S. C., on Saturday by the steamer St.
Helena, Capt Ccrcopely. The General de
parted again yesterday morning for Bruns
wick, Ga. „
Burning of the Steamship Wkybosskt.—
The New York papers received yesterday,
contain tbe particulars of the burning of the
Weybosset at New York, which has already
been briefly announced by our telegraphic
correspondent. The fire was first discovered
at 4 1-2 o'clock on Tuesday morning by the
night watchman on the pier, who observed
smoke issuing from tbe forward bold. At
once an alarm was given, and the Fire De
partment responded. A copious stream of
water was applied from steam fire engines,
and the ship was flooded so that the fire was
prevented from spreading beyond the forward
hold where it seems to have originated.
The facts, as elicited by the Fire Marshal,
show that Captain H. W. Parish arrived
here, trom Savannah, on Saturday last—that
vessel being a regular packet between New
York and Savannah. Her cargo consisted of
lorn hundred and ninety-two bales of cotton,
with an assorted cargo of fruits. Three hun
dred and for:y bales of cotton had been dis
charged—leaving in the forward hatch one
hundred and’ sixty bales. Those hatches
were closed, and were to have been opened
on Tuesday and the cotton discharged. The
vessel was to sail on Wednesday of the
week—that being her regular day Quite a
large freight of dry goods bad been already
taken on board and stored in tbe after hold —
the freight belonging to different shippers,
who no doubt have insurance on it. The
tire has been exceedingly well managed by
Commissioner Brown and Chief Engineer
Kingsland, thus saving a very large amount
of property. Nine-sixteenths of the vessel
are owned by E. J. Nightingale. He has uu
insurancesof $40,000 to cover his interest.—
The balance of the ship is owned by George
Grinmau, of Mystic, Conn. His interest is
A large quantity of the ship's furniture was
removed from the ship to the dock at the
time of the fire. Captain Parish is of the
opinion, as the fire did not extend abaft the
mainmast, that tbe damage will not exceed
$15,000, on which Mr. Nightingale has'ainple
insurance to cover the loss.
Iu reference to the cause of the fire, Capt.
Parish informed the Fire Marshal that the
forward hatch had not been opened, and that
lie is of the opinion that the fire was caused
by combustion among the cotton ; but from
what cause he is unable to say. It may have
been smouldering there since she left Savan
nah. The vessel is pretty well filled with
water, and iu a few days the owners will
pump her out, and the repairs will imme
diately go on and the ship will then be put
on the fine again.
