THE SPECIAL MESSAGE
FAY* iHABLE KEPORT OF GENERAL
The President <m Tuesday, transmitted the
(following message to the Senate :
’ Ui> the Senate of the United States ;
In reply to the resolution adopted by the
Senate on the 12th. I have tlte houor to stale
that the rebellion waged by a portion of the
people agaiust the properly constituted au
thorities of the Uuitcd States has been sup
pressed ; that the United States are iu pos
session of every Slate iu which thu insurrec
tion existed, and that, as far as could be
done, the courts of the United Slates have
.been restored, post offices re-established, and
steps taken to put iuto effective operation
the revenue laws of the country. As the re
sult of the measures instituted by the Exe-’
cutivc with the view of indusing a resump
tion of the functions of the States compre
hended in the inquiry of the Senate, the peo
ple in North Carolina, South Carolina, Geor
gia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkau
: sas aud Tennessee have recognised their re-,
•pective State Governments, and are yielding
[obedience to the laws and .Qoverum cut of
the United States with more Willingness and
' greater promptitude than uuder the circum
stances, could reasonably have been antici
pated. The proposed amendment to the
Constitution, providing for the abolition of
slavery forever within the limits of the coun
try. has been ratified by each one of these
Slates, willi the exception of Mississippi,
from which no official information has been
received; and iu nearly all of them mea
sures have been adopted, or are now pend
ing, to confer upou the lreedmen the privi
leges which are essential to their, comiort,
protection and security. Iu Florida and
Texas the people are making considerable
progress in restoring their State Governments,
aud no doubt is entertained that they will,
at a very early period, be in a condition to re
sume all their practical relations with the
Iu that portion of Uie Union lately iu re
bellion the aspect of affairs is more promising
tliun, in view of ail the circumstances, could
well have been expected. The people
throughout the entire Suuth eviuce a lauda
ble desire to rcuew their allegiance to the
Government and to repair the devastations of
war by a prompt and cheerful return to peace
ful pursuits. An abiding faith is cutertaioed
that their actions will conform to their pro
fessions, nnd that in acknowledging the su
premacy of the Constitution and tire laws of
the U. S. their loyalty will be unreservedly
given to the Government whose leniency
ihyy caunot fail to appreciate, and whose
fuateriug care will soon restore them to a
condition of prosperity. It is true that in
some of the States the demoralizing effects
of the war are to be seen iu occasional dis
orders ; but these are local in character, uot
trequeut in occurrence, aud are rapidly dis
appearing as the authority of the civil power
Is extended and sustained. Perplexing ques
tions were naturally to be expected from the
great and sudden change in the relations be
tween the two races ; but systems are grad
ually developing themselves under which the
freedmeu will receive the protection to which
he is justly entitled, and by means of his la
bor make himself a uselui and independent
member of the community in which he has

December 18, 18<>5. )
To his Excellency Andrew Jobuson, Presi
dent of the United States :
Sir— l reply to your note of the 16th inst.,
requesting a report from me giving such in
formation as I may be possessed of coming
within the scope of the inquiries made by the
Senate ot the United States IU their resolu
tion of the 12th inst. I have the honor to
submit the following, with your approval
and also that of the honorable Hecretary’of
1 left Washington City on the 27tli of last
month for the purpose of making a tour ol
inspection throughout some of the Southern
Elates lately in rebellion, and to see what
changes were necessary in tb* disposition of
the military force of the country, how these
forces could he reduced and expenses cur
tailed, &c. ; and to learn, as far as possible,
the feelings and intentions of the citizens ot
Jhese States toward the General Government,
the State of Virginia being bo accessible to
H ashington City, and information from this
garter therefore being readily obtained, I
hastened through the State without convers
mg or meeting with any of its citizens. In
ffaleigb N. C., I spent one day ; in Charles
ton. S. C., two days, and in Savannah and
Au «usla, Ga., each, one day. Both in travel
ID g uud while stopping I saw much and con
versed freely with the citizens of those States
well as with officers of the army who
have been stationed among them,
ft i'ue following are the conclusions come’to
hf me: f 1 uni satisfied that the mass ‘of
minting men of the South accept the pres
ent situation of atfaiis in good faith- The
*iue*lioDs which have hitherto divided the
“•ntinionta of the people of the two sections

In Ur# i ouuctl Km years ot war, du
;, *Hf *hicb, law was * Mooted only at the |
point of the bayooet throughout the Btales in
rebellion, have left the people possibly iu a
condition not to yield that ready obedience
to dvit authority the American people have
generally been in the habit of yielding.
This would reuder the presence of small
garrisons throughout those Slates neoesaary
until such time as labor returns to its proper
channel aud civil authority is fully establish
ed. I did not meet any one, either those
lioldiug places under the Government or citi
zens of the Southern States, who thought it
practicable to withdraw the military foree
from the South at present The presence of
black troops, lately slaves, demoralizes labor
both by tboir advice, and furnisbiug in their
camps s resort for the lreedmen for long dis
tancesaronnd. White troops generally excite
no opposition, sad therefore a small nu mber of
them can maintain order in a given district.
Colored troops must be kept in bodies
sufficient to defend themselves. It is not the
thiuking men who would do violence toward
sny class of troops sent among them by the
General Government; but the ignorant in
some places might; and the late slaves, too,
who might bo imbued with the idea that the
property of his late master should by right
belong to him, at least should have uo pro
tectiouWfrom the colored soldier. There i9
danger of collision being brought on by such
causes. My observations lead me to the
conclusion that the citizens of the Southern
States are anxious to return to self-govern
ment within the l T uiou as soon ss possible;
that while reconstructing they want and re
quire protectiou Irons the Government; that
they think, is required by the Government,
ami is not Imutilialiug to them as citizens i
aud that it such a course were pointed out,
they would pursue it in good faith. It is to
be regretted that there cannot be a greater
commingling at this time between the citi
zens of the two sections, and particularly of
those intrusted with the law-making power.
I did not give the operations of the Freed
men’s Bureau that attention I would have
dime if more time had beeu at my disposal.
Conversations, however, on the subject with
officers connected with the Bureau, led me
to think Uiat in some of thfe States its affairs
have not been conducted with good judg
ment and economy, and that the belief wide
ly spread amoug the freedmen of the Sou
thern States that the lands of their former
owners will, at least in part, be divided
among them, has come from the agents of
Ibis Bureau. This belie! is seriously inter
fering with the willingness of the treedmen
to make contracts for the coming year. In
some form the Fruedmcn's Bureau is an ab
solute necessity until civil law is established
ani( enforced, securing to' the freedmen
tbelr rights and full protection. At present,
however, it is independent of the military
establishment of the country, and seems
to be operated by the different agents
of the Bureau according to their in
dividual notions. Everywhere General
Howard, the Able head ol the Bureau, made
frieuds by the just and fair instructions apd
advice he gave. But the complaint in South
Carolina was that when be left,- things went
on ss before. Many, perhaps the majority,
of the agents of the Freedmen’s Bureau ad
vise the freedmen that by their own indus
try they must expect to live. To this end
they endeavor to secure employment for
them, and to see that both contracting parties
comply with their engagements. In some
cases, I am sorry to say, the freedman’s mind
does not seem to be disabused of the idea
that the freedman has the. right to live with
out care or provision for the future. The ef
fect of the belief in the division of lands is
idleness and accumulation in camps, towns
aud cities. In such cases I think it' will be
fouud that vice aud disease will tend to the
extermination or great destruction of the
colored race, it cannot be expee'ed that the
opinions held by men at the South for years
can be changed in a day. And, therefore,
the freedmen require for a few years,not only
laws to protect them, but the fostering care
of those who will give them good counsel
and on whom they can rely. The Freed
.men's Bureau being separated from the mili
tary establishment of the country requires all
Uie expense of a separate organization. Oue
does not necessarily know wnat the other is
doing, hr what orders they are acting under.
It seems to me tfiis could be corrected by
regarding every officer on duty with troops
in the Southern States as agents of the
Freedmen’s Bureaus aud then have all orders
from the head of the Bureau sent through
the department commanders. This would
create a responsibility that would cause uni
formity of action throughout the South,
would cause the orders and instructions from
the head of die Bureau to be carried out,
and would relieve from duty and pay a large
number of employes of the Government.
I have the honor to be, very respectfully,
your obedient servant,
U- 8. Grant, Lieutenant General.

THIS I nveminu consists of Dnplex.(or two) Ellptlc
Pure Reined Steel Springs, Ingeniously braided
tightly and firmly together, edge to edge, making the
toughest, most flexible, clastic and durable Spring
ever used- They seldom bend or break, like tbe sin
gle Springs, and consequently preserve their perfect
and beautiful shape more than twice as ldng'as any
Single Spring Skirt that ever has or can be made.
The wonderful flexibility and great comfort and
pleasure to any lady wearing tbe Duplex Elliptic Skirt
wilt be experienced particularly in all crowded Assem
blies, Operas, Carriages. Railroad Cars, Church Pews,
Arm Chairs, for Promenade and House Dress, as the
Skirt can be folded when in use to occupy a small
gaee as easily and conveniently as a Slik or Muslin
ress. i . * »
A lady having enjoyed the pleasure, comfort and
great convenience of wearing the Duplex Elliptic
Steel Spring Skirt for a single day will nevfr after
wards willingly dispense with their use. For children,
misses -and young ladies they are superior to all oth
The Hoops are covered with 2 ply double twisted
thread and will wear twice as long as the single yarn
covering which Is used on all Singfe4Reel Hoop Skirts.
The three bottom rods ou every Skirt are also Double
Steel, and twice or double covered to prevent the cov
ering from wearing off the rodß when dragging down
stairs, stone steps, Ac., which they are constantly
subject to when in use.
All are made of tbe new and dTegantCo.ded Tapes,
and are the best quality in every part, giving to tbe
