Sarsaparilla has, and deserves much, the
reputation of accomplishing these ends. But
the world has been egregiously deceived by

they not only contain little, if .any, Sarsapa

has followed the use of the various extracts of
Sarsamrilla which flood the market, until the
name itself is justly despised, and has become
synonymous with imposition ana cneat, sjtui

at, ehould bs ascertained.
A pontoon br.dge bad been erected across the
Ohio river by Gen, Fremont, at Paduoab. A
ferry boat, in a region where snob boats are
readily proom ed, would ba just as efficient and
mock lees expensive.

Having received an intimation from another
quarter of an impropriety, 1 oalled on Captalu
MoKeever, A. A. G , for tbe facts, which be
gave me as follows: One week alter tbe rcel(t
ot tbe rreetoent's order modifying uen. frt
mont's proclamation relative tu tbe emancipa
tion of slaves, Gsn. Fremont, by note to Capt.
mohteever, required blm to bave two hundred
copies of the original proclamation, and address
to the army of tbe same date, printed and sent
Immediately to lrontun, for tbe nee of Major
Garrett, of tbe Indiana Cavalry, tor distribu
tion through tbe country. Capt. McKeever had
tbe copies printed and delivered. Fremont's
order ln this matter was aa follows:
"Adjatant Geoerai will bave two hundred
copies of Proclamation of Commanding Gen
eral, dated 30tb of Aug , together with Address
to tbe Army of tbe same date, sent Immediate
ly to I ronton, for tbe use of Major Garrett,
Indiana Cavalry. Major Garrett will distribute
il through the country.

', We Isft Si. Louis October 13. for Gen. Frs-
mon 'l headauartera at TiDton. one hundred and
sixty miles distant, passing the night at Jeffer
son City, tbe capital or Missouri, one honarea
and twsnty-five miles from St. Louis. General
rrloe was In command ot the place witu twelve
hundred men. The Eighth Iowa were there, on
the way to Tipton- At this place there wee
accumulated a large quantity of forage, landed
from steamboats, and means of transportation,
also, tbe half barrels for carrying the water, at,d
a number of mules, which Captain Turuley cid
be could not get forward, having no control
over tne traosportttion by railroad.
We arrived in Tipton at 9 A. M. of the 13.h.
Tbe Seoretary of War waa called on by Gen.
Fremont, and, upon his Invitation, accompanied
him to Syracuse, five miles distant, to review
Gen McKineuy'e division, about eight thousand
strong Tbla body of troupe ie said to be tbe
best equipped sod best supplied of tbe whole
army, Toey certainly are, so far at means of
traosportatlun are ooncerned.
At TiDton. beside Ueo.. rremont and stall,
his body guard, etc-, I found a part of Geueral
Humor's let Dlv'aion and Uenerai Asbotb a em
Tbe force designed to act agalust Price con
lists ol five divisions, as follows:
1st Division, Hunter's at Tipton
Id DiTision, lope's, at Geureton ,
Jd Sirlsion. ntitei'.. at Hedalia
4th Divlewe, airmth'e, at Tipton
9th Division, MoKiusuy'e, at Byraeuae..,
As soon as I obtained a. view of the several
eooempmenteat Tipton, I expreeeed tbe opinion
thai tbe loroee tneie assembled could not oe
moved, as tOarcely any means of transport ttion
were visiole I saw Uenerai Hooter, second in
Oimmaud, and conversed freely with him. He
stated that there was great confusion., and that
General rremont was utterly Inoompeteni; that
bta own division waa greatly scattered, and the
force there present detective in many respects;
that bs himself required one hundred wagons,
bat that be was coder orders to march that day,
sod some of bis troops wars already drawn ont
on tbe road. His oavalry regiment (Elba's)
had horses and indifferent arms, but no equip
ments. , The men bad to oarry their cartridges
ln their Vest pockets, consequently on their first
day's maroh from Jefferson City, in a heavy
rain whioh fell, tbe cartridges were aestroyea.
This march to Tipton (35 miles) was made on
a mud road, heavy and miry with rains, and
parallel to the railroad and but a little distance
from It. The troopa were direoted by Gen.
Fremont to march without provisions or knap
sacks, and without transportation. A violent .
rain storm came np, and the troops were ex
posed to it all nights were without food tor
twenty-four hours; and, when food was receiv
ed, tbe beer was lonnd to be spoiled.
General Hunter stated to me tbat be bad usi
