executive office, i
Austin, August 19, 1865. J
u*h«raiis. bv the Proclamation of the President
f the United Status, of the 17th of June, 1865,
®f rill) purpose of enabling the loyal people of
TV xas to organize ft State Government, Ac., itin
untile mv duty as Provisional Governor of safd
SySL, "at the earliest practical period, to pre
tion of the people of said Sfcato who are loyi„ „
the United Staios, and no otlnrs; and, whereas, it
is further provided in said Proclamation that "no
iHirsoa shall be qualified us an elector, or eligiblo
as a member of such Convention, unless ho shdl
have previously taken and subscribed the oath of
amnesty, as set forth in the President's Proclama-
tion oí 29th of May, A. D. 1865, and, whereas, it
hiw been made known to n;e that many persons
lirtve taken said oath oi' amnesty, whose subse-
quent conduct and declarations contradict the
idea that they took said oath with the ^ intent in
good faith* observe the same. .
Now, therefore, for the purpose of providing
the mean# whereby the people of the State who de-
jare to take said oath of amnesty, and who are en-
titled to the benefits thereof under the said Pro-
< riimation of the President of the 29th of May,
A. D., 1865, may be enabled to do so with the
least delay and inconvenience; and for the purpose
«.f ascertaining who are the people ' loyal to the
United States," upon whom expressly, "and none
"others," is conferred the power to elect delegates
to a Convention hereafter to be assembled : I,
Andrew J\ Hamilton, Provisional Governor of the
átate of Texas, do prescribe and proclaim the fol-
lowing "rules and regulations,".viz :
1st. The Chief Justices of the several counties
iu the State are charged, ex-qfficio, with the duty
ofltdministering the oath of amnesty to the resi-
dents and citizens of their respective counties;
and for the purpose of administering said oath,
.and at the same time of making a register of the
names of loyal citizens who shall ba entitle^ to
vote in the election of delegates to a Convention,
and a like register of the names of those persons
who may take the avid oath of amnesty as a pre-
liminary step to an application to the President of
the United States for special pardon, I hereby or-
der that the Chief Justices, in their respective
counties, and the Clerk of the County Court, and
the Clerk of the District Court for the county,
shall constitute a Board for the administration of
tho said oath of amnesty and the making of the
faid registers. The Chief Justice and either of
the Clerks above mentioned shall constitute a quo-
rum for the transaction of the business hereby
committed to them.
2d. The Chief Justices shall provide for the use
of the Board a suitable blank book, in which a
separate register shall bo kept of tho names of
loyal citizens who shall bo entitled to vote in the
election of delegates to a Convention, and another
register of the names of those who take the oath
of amnesty for the purpose of applying to the
President of tho United States for a special par-
3d. The Chief Justices shall also provide, for
the use of the Board, printed forms of tlua^ath of
amnesty, which shall be properly filled up with
the name of the party to whom tho oath is admin-
istered, and signed oy him, when he takes the
oath, in the presence of the Chief Justice, to
which fact the Chief Justice shall certify. This
oath, so signed by the party, shall be deposited
in the office pf the Clerk of the County Court, and
kept by him. The Chief Justice shall also pró-
vido, for the use of the Board, printed forms of
certificates, which shall be signed by the Chief
Justice and attested by the Clerk of the County
Court, and delivered to the party to whom the
oath of amnesty is administered, to be evidence
iu his hands of the fact that he has taken the
oath. These certificates sh:dl state, as the fact
may be, that the party, naming him, has token the
oath of amnesty and been placed on the Register
of his county as a voter; or, that being within one
or more of the exceptions to the general amnesty
offered by the President of tho United States, he
nas taken the oath of amnesty as a step prelimin-
ary to his application to the President for espe-
4th. Tho Board, hereinbefore constituted, shall
«it in every county at least one day in every week,
lor the transaction of the business hereby com-
mitted to it. The Chief Justice Bhall give public
notice* by posting notices at public phtojs in all
the precincts of the county, of the day on which
flie Board will meet. The Board may, if the mem-
bers of the Board deem it proper or necessary to
do so, sit on two or moro days of each week, for
the transaction of business, alvv^s giving public
notica of fhe days on which the Board wili hold
5th. None but those who are entitled to claim
the benefit of the general amnesty offered by the
President of tjje United States, will have the right
to have their names placed on the^Kegister as vo-
ters. Those who are embraced wfthin any of the
exceptions to the general amnesty offered by tho
President, will be permitted to také the oath of
amnesty only for the purpose of enabling them to
present their petitions to the Prostdent for special
pardon. When special pardon shall have been
granted by the President to any such person, and
evidence of the fact shall be presented to the Board,
the name of such person shall be placed on the
Register of voters, anda certificate of the fact,
kigned by the Chief Justice and attested by the
Clerk of the County Court, shall be given to the
party; and the fact that the party has received the
President's pardon, shall at the same time be noted
6th. In any case in whioh he may think proper
to do so, the Chief Justice shall have the power to
swear the party who desires to take the oath of
amnesty, to answer questions; and he may interro-
gate him touching his loyalty to the Government
<>f the United States, and the intent with which he
proposes to take the oath. If any one shall refuse
to be sworn, or, being sworn, -shall, by his answers
to tho questions which may be propounded to him,
give evidence of hostility to tho Government of
'he United States, or of a purpose to oppose the
mo wures which have been adopted in relation to
slavery, it will be the duty of the Board to refuse
to admiuister the oath of amnesty to such per-
7th. For the administration of the oath of am-
nesty, the registry hereinbefore required, and the
< < rtificate to be delivered to the party, the Board
«hall bo cntitleu to charge the sum of ope dollar
.in specie, or in the paper money of the United
States: one-half of which sum shall be paid to the
t hief Jrstico, and the remainder half equally divi-
ded bciween the other members of the Board.
8th. For tho- certifldnto provided for in'the 5th
elftUKo of tlieBe instructions, tho Board shall be en
titled to charcre tho additional sum of fifty cents
in spe&e, or in the paper money of the United
ofthe Board*511 ^ ldedamontfst the members
9th. All pdrsons who have heretofore taken the
oath ofamnesty before officers of the United
States army, or any other persons authorized to
administer said oath, and who denro to be regis-
tered as voters in the counties of their residence,
shall present to the Board of Regulation, her«in-
betore constituted, tho evidence that they have
Tl ?f Ulam,sty. that they are
entitled to bo legistered as voters; whereupou it
shall be the duty ot the Bbard to place the names
of such person^ on the register of voters, and to

A. J. HAMILTON, #
Jameh H. Belju, Secretary of State.
Hkgouueu's Coubt.—Judge Cole Presiding.—'
Mr. (iruntar was brought before Court yesterday
morning, charged by Mrs. Glosson with using im-
proper language towards her, a decent minded wo-
man, at the commissary's office, to whioh plaee she
had proceeded, in order to see about "rations."
Mr. Grunter tho defendent said he did not look at
her once while he was speaking, yet did not deny,
his having expressed admiratory remarks of the
fair sex, and admitted that ho had said, he would
dress himself up, and see if he could not get a
sweetheart. In consequence of the absence of one
material witness, Mrs. Glosson asked to have the
case continued for eight days, which the Judge
not allowed, although her feelings were very much
injured. The oqjgprt lined him one dollar and costs,
by the paymei^tof which he was discharged.
—"Jim Sewell," a colored ti-eedman was arrraign-
ed beforo his honor the Recorder this morning,
charged with abusing his wife, and "rousing Cain"
generally. Jim was up before the Provost Mar-
shal, a few weeks ago for the same thing. Jim in-
tends to have the most striot oVder prevail where
ho is, and evidently, is not particular how he en-
forces it. But one thing about Jim, he forgets
that ho lives under a "Republican Government"
which is the opposite of tyranny, and that "knock
down arguments" are not allowed. The court
sentenced him to pay a fine of $10 and costs, his
honor remarking at the same time, that ho evi-
dently had A very jealous disposition, and that his
wife was evidently much too good for him. Wo
hope that Jim will correct himselHi little after this
beforo ho tries to correct others.
—Among other stands which are old landmarks,
and have long beon closed, we observe that tho old
sidoon known as "Dan Phillips" on the corner of
Strand and Tremont streets, has been refitted,
painted and decorated by Mr. John Chanhals, who
has one of the best assortments of liquors, cigars,
etc., in the city. This old stand is a favorite
place of resort, and is in the hands of a gentle-
man, who knows how to keep a saloon, and te fur-
nish customers with that which suits them best.
—We cannot help observing how rapidly busi-
ness if i ncreusing in Galveston. The wharfs al-
ready, are crowded with steamers, ships, and oth-
er crafts, laden with merchandize of every descrip-
tion. . Old stores are being refitted, and dwellings
turned into stores. Hundreds of strangers pass
through here every day, and all our merphants
seem busy. Galveston is 4*'tpidly regaining its
former position as «^commercial city, and the
marks of war are being obliterated. If any one
doubts, that Galveston will be the great commer-
cial city this side of the Mississippi, a few days
residence here, we think, will cominee them t.n
—Four men were rescued by Mr. Freybe, on
Sunday night, about 9 o'clock, Who had been
clinging to their capsized boat from seven o'clock
in the morning until that time. They were res-
