The Military Orders.
We republish this week, the General Orders of
General Gordon Granger, Commander of the U. S.
.orces, by which our citizens will perceive, the ne-
groes ajre declared free, etc. This declaration cer-
tainly does not legally free the negroes. It is a
•roces3 0t emancipation unknown to the Constitu-
tion, and without legitimate effect; but inasmuch
as the necessary number of States to secure the
massage of the Amendment of the Constitution, ei-
ther has been, or soon will be obtained, our peo-
ple had better, at once, prepare tor the change,
which in this region of country, and in all upland
regions, will be more nominal than real; or at least
;ot productive of the serious consequences, threat-
ening the alluvial sections of country, cultiva.
;ed by extensive Planters of rice, sugar,and cotton.
White men can cultivate this upland country.—
Fe-.v of our plantations are very large. Many of
ihe negroes in this 'country will continue to work
tor their present masters; and^Iismissing all incum-
brances of weakly, and inefficient K hands, the prof-
its of the planter need not bejmaterially diminish-
ed. What is to become of the dismissed—the
aged—the children—the 6&kly,ie of coarse a sub-
ject for consideration by those who have rudely
severed the previously existing organization by
which they have all been comfortably provided.
That they will suffer,we doubt .not;masse8 of them
will die from want, and neglect; but as it has been
determined by controlling power that the obligation
which bound our people to feed, and support, ana
..are for them, shall he severed; we shall not be
responsible to the laws of the country, nor in the
judgment of the Controller of the Universe*pFor
that which wehave strenuously resisted, a3"!ang
as the power of resistance remained to ue.
The accounts oi how the freedmen are deporting
themselves in other States, are so variant, that we
cannot well determine what the end is to be; but
we have noted that President Johnson has suggest
ed to them deportation to some other country;an d
that some African Preacher in Jfew Orleans,wfio;
seems to have mind, and some acquirements, tells
them distinctly,that if they remain with the whites,
the race is destined to be effaced; and therefore he
recommends to them emigration, and the main-
tenance of their unity in some other land.
The colonization society however,has long been
preaching to them the advantages of a return to
Africa, and self go vernment; but has never yet,
with free passages afforded them, and the subsist-;
ence for a time after getting to Liberia succeeded
in building up A populous qolony.
Wherever they may go; Sand go, we liope the
larger portion of them will—though we doubt if
they can ever be coaxed, add inflated sufficiently,
to get them, away: wherever they may go,they will'
relapse into utter indolence, c.nd. ■ semi-barba-
Fanatical meddlers will,have had their wayjand.
as ever, in ail the world's history, they will have
succeeded in inflicting a curse upon all in whose
behalf they have attempted to act. j
In future history it will be read,that in the own-
ership, and under the control of humane, and in->
telligent Southern Masters, the negroes, as a race,:
have attained, and maintained consistently, their
highest estate. Undoubtedly individuals .under
higher culture, and special stimulation, have t c
quired higher comparative position,among the ab-
olitionists—hut the masses far otherwise.
We call the attention of the late operators
in the Sugar M arket at Roland, to a card in this

"Dear Sir:—Your letter of Sept. 14th is received.
I approach a question involving a title to a 'horse'
with deference to the lajfs of war. That mysterious
code, of which we talk so much, but know so little,
is remarkably silent on the 'horse.' He U a beast
so tempting to the soldier,to him of the wild cavalry,
the fancy artiPery, or the patient infantry, that I
find more difficult in recovering a worthless, spa-
vined beist.,than in paying a million of 'greenbaCKs
so that I fear I must reduce your claim to one bf fi-
nance, and r refer you to the great board of claims
in Washington, that may reach your case by the
time your grandchild becomes great-grand-father
"Privately, I think it was a shabby thing in the
scamp of the 31st Missouri who took your horse;and
the Colonel; or his Brigadier should have restored
him, But I cannot undertake to make good the
sins of omission of my ow.n Colonels, or Brigadiers,
muchless of a former generation. 'When this cruel
war is over,' and peace once more gives you a par-
ish, I will promise, if near you, to procure out of one
of Uncle Sam's correls a beast that will replace the
one taken from you so wrongfully: but now it is im-
possible. We have a big journey before us, and
need all we have, and I fear more too; so look out
when the Yanks are about, and hide your beasts,
for my experience is, that all soldiers are very care-
less in a search for title. I know that Gen. Hardee
will confirm this, my advice. With great respcct

A Horrible Practice.— It came out in a
case before an English Police court, lately, that a
practice exists among beggars to keep their chil-
dren Irom growing, by feeding them with gin, so
as to insure always having a baby to attract com-
passion. In the case before the court, a child tour
years old was stunted so as not to appear more
than twelve months old.
