Mexican war he was a captain in the regular
army and was noted for his " dash " and brav

his hair from his head when young, and there

has clung to him to the present.
There is not much news that can be relied
upon from the alleged Morgan raid in Kentucky
It is now believed, however, that the first reports
were greatly exaggerated. A Cincinnati dispatch
says that Gen. Burbridge whipped the marau
ders at Mount Sterling on Thursday. On Friday
morning some of them made a descent on Lex
ington, burned the railroad depot, robbed a few
stores, and changed their base. Burbridge is

ij®> Soldiers' Aid Societies, clergymen, editors and
others, can scarcely serve the cause of humanity more
effectually than by frequently and widely dissemina
ting a knowledge of the above, among those who have
friends in the army. The hospital statistics in this
department of the Sanitary Commission are very
complete and exact, and daily prove of incalculable
value to the soldiers, their friends and relatives.
The Sanitary Commission, under special authority
of the President of the United States, mantains an ex
tensive system of agencies for securing the safe con
veyance to, and distribution of, goods put in its charge
for the sick and wounded at points where they are
most wanted. It operates with equal care and gen
erosity at all points—at New Orleans and at Washing
ton ; its distributions being governed by a comparison
of the wants of the patientsln all cases. To ascertain
the relative character of these wants in a trustworthy
manner, and to secure an equitable distribution and
honest use of the goods distributed, besides the unpaid
services of the members of the Commission, twenty
piiysicians of high professional and moral character,
and more than fifty lay agents, are employed, under
pecuniary securities for responsible and efficient ser
vice. The cost of these arrangements has thus far
been about 3 per centum of the value of the goods dis
tributed. The Commission has not been able to obtain
authentic evidence of losses, miscarrfage, or misap
propriations, to the value of one dollar in ten thou
sand, of goods which have been once received at its
shipping depots. The following is a list of these de
pots, to which auxiliary societies, and all disposed to
aid the sick and wounded, without reference to States
or localities, but simply to their relative necessity for
assistance, are invited to send their offerings :
