The Sanitary Commission, under special authority
of the "President of the United States, nuuitalns 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 patients in all cases. To ascertain
the relative character of these wants in a trustworthy
manner, and to secure an equltab.le distribution and
honest use of the goods distributed besides the unpaid
services of the members of the Commission, twenty
physicians 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, miscarriage, or misap
propriations, to the value of one dollar in ten thou
sand, of goods which have been once received at it_»
shipping depots. The following is n list of these de
pots, to which auxiliary societies, and all cUapoMd 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:
