From (he Cleveland Btrald of ifarchlS.
Tha orthography of tha Worcester Dictionary Is that
used bv most. If not all, authors of distinction in this
country and England, and conforms to the general usage
of ordinary writers and speakers. 1
Whatever prejudice may have existed previously, a
careful study of this volume will invariably be followed
by a warm appreciation of Its great merits, and a deslr
to add it to the well selected library, be it large or small,
It Is a library In Itself, and will remain an Imperisha
ble record of the learning of its compiler. '
from the OineinnaU Commercial of April 80. j
Hera are upwards of a hundred thousand words good,
bad and Indifferent whose multifarious meanings and
derivations, together with their eorreot spelling and pro
nunoiatlon, are set clearly before tha aye. The work ts
unquestionably the greatest Thesaurus of Bngllsh Words
ever published. J -:: i

Quarter-Master General of Ohio.
The committee are fully satisfied that the
Quarter-Master General made no oontraots not
above noted, and tbat the Implied censnre of the
HouBe was not only unmerited Dut unjust.
In the matter of contracts made by the Com
missary Department, your committee have not
naa an opportunity to maae an examination
into all of them, but aa iar as their examina
tion has extended, we find nothing that, in our
judgment, would attach to Commissary General
Runyon's connexion therewith any improper or
dishonorable action or motive. And while
your committee are of the opinion that.under tbe
emergency of the occasion, oontraots were made
at extravagant rates and without due con
sideration, we have no evidence that any Ira
proper motives actuated any officer in making
such contracts Your committee submit tbe
following minutes of evidence and statements
made to them, and copy of contraots, and ask
to be discharged from the further consideration
of tbe subject.

Comstock the Bum of fifty cents per day for

It is, however, distinctly understood, tbat if

la witness whereof tbe Commissary General of

I approve the above contract.
W. DENNISON, Governor.
The above is a true 'copy of the original con
tract on file in tlio office of the Commissary
Private Secretary.
G. W. Kuuvon, being sworn, stated
The Governor telegraphed me to come to
Columbus; I did so; found tbe Governor, Gen.
Cox and others in consultation. Companies of
volunteers were arriving, live companies then
being in.- The Governor directed myself and
Mr. liuttlcs to una quarters tor mem on tbe
best terms we could. We made arrangement
for one company at the Goodale House at Si 25
per day; two companies at the United States at
75 cents per day; one company at the New
England at 75 cents per day; one company at
the Buckeye at $1 00. We reported our ar
rangement to the crowd In the Governor's of
fice, and the Governor approved of it.
Tbe Governor then direoted Mr. Battles and
myself to look up suitable parties that would
contract to subsist the volunteers. We went
to Mr. Butler and made the proposition to him;
be asked time to consult bis friends. After
such consultation be offered to subsist the men
at tbe rate of 50 cents per day which proposi
tion was submitted by them to the Governor, who
directed Mr. Cox to draw up a contract at those
rates, which he did, I signed It as Commissary
General, and the Governor immediately endors
ed on It his approval.
Wben tbe contract was made, 1 did not know
what the cost per day would be to subsist the
men on army rations, but by subsequent estl
mates find that it would be about 17 cents per
day., , The Governor thought it would not do to
bring tbe volunteers immediately to army ra
tions. Contracts were made under the emer
gency, without due consideration -
many companies came into camp witnout or
ders and in fact against orders.
I have not, neither am I to reoeive any con
sideration, either directly or indirectly, In con
sidention for the giving of suoh contract, from
Butler. Donaldson dr. Co-, or any other parties
Didn't make any contract with Wheeler, Failing
& Co , lor subsisting volunteers, ana Enow notn
ine about the contract. . t ,
Subsistence furnished by contractors has been
entirely satisfactory to me, except In few eases,
when tbe butter was bad; i believe tbe eontrao
tors bave used great dlligene In making prep
arations lor tne accommodation oi troops.
Mr. Donaldson, beioff dulv sworn, utatrd
that Mr, Comstock came into his office on Anril
17th, Mr. Butler being in the offloe, and pro
posed mat tney snouia mase an oner tor entt
siating tne men. vv e went in aearcn or Mr
Runvon, and found bias, together with General
Buttles, in a carriage on the street. We offered
to subsist tbe troops at ou eents per day. Mr.
Runvon requested ns to submit our offer in writ
ing to the Governor, which we did. We never
made the contraot with Mr. Runyon, but with
the Governor. Don't know of any oonsldera
tiod to be given to Mr. Runyon, either direct
ly er indirectly, on account of eald contraot.
Mr. Comstock sworn: Stated that he knows
of no consideration given or to be given to Mr,
Runyon on account of any contract, either di
rectly or Indirectly.
Col. ANDREWS, of the House, being called
stated that he knew notbing in regard to eald
Mr. BLAKESLEE, of the House, being oall
ed to state what be knew In reference to the
contracts, and any Improper aotion or motives
in connection therewith on the part of Mr. Run
van stated that he knew nothing about tbe con
tracts lurther than seeing the copies of tome of
them. And has no knowledge of any Improper
action or motive on tue part or Mr. Kenyan is
connection therewitn.. . .
COLUMBUS, May 10, 1861.
'Gentlemen; My recollection of the clroura
stances connected f ith the ubatBenc contract
yon are investigating, is as follows: Ou receiving
the President's Proclamation, calling for thir
teen regiments from Ohio, I directed Commls-
sary General George Runyan to report him
self for duty. He came to Columbn od the fol
lowing morning, at which time a telegram was
received from the Secretary of War, urging the
forwarding of two Regiments of the Ohio con
tingent to Washington during the week,
to defend, as was assumed, the Capital
A number of companies, I think, had al
ready arrived or were about arriving, and
tbe most active efforts were being made by
myself and staff to bring the two Regiments
here at the earliest moment. Immediate ar
rangements had to be provided for the troops -
There were no barracks no camp grouna naa
been selected no camp equipage was at hand.
I directed Gen. Runvan to make provision for
tbe trooDit and in a little while ne reportea to
me that, under the circumstances, they could
better, and more cheaulv. be subsisted by con
tract with third parties, than by any other way.
indeed no other plan presented itseu, exoept to
quarter them at tbe hotels; whicD, irom me
large number to be expected witbin a day or
two was impracticable, or if practicable, very
expensive. The suggestion or uenerai nun
yan seemed to me to be very reasonable, espe
cially in view of the expectation that the troops
might and probably would remain in camp
but a few days, tbe indications then being
that all the thirteen Regiments would soon
be called to tbe east. In a abort time, Mr
Lutber Donaldson and bis co-contractors came
to my office, as I understood, having been in'
formed by Gen. Kunyan of tbe purpose or bay
ing tbe troops subsisted Dy con ract. i oey
made tbeir proposition, if I remember aright,
in writing. It seemed to me to be too high.
But, for tbe foregoing reasons, I thought tbe
public interest would be promoted by accepting
it, with some modifications, which were agreed
to. I left the oerfeoting of tbe details and
writing the contract to General J. D. Cox, who
was then rendering me all tbe assistance which
bis public duties would permit. - ,
To Messrs. Monahan. Wright, Bruff, and
others of House of Representatives' Commit
The above report was ordered to be printed
and Inserted In the official report.
Mr. BALDWIN, Irom tbe committee on f i
nance, reported back S. B. 306 Fixing tbe rate
of taxation for tbe year 1861, with sundry amend
Mr. BALDWIN and Mr. BONAR explained
the provisions of tbe bill and amendments, and
the reasons for them. One of these amend
ments provided for a reduction of the levy for
tbe school lund.
Mr. HILLS opposed this feature. He would
not take tbe money from tbe school fund to be
spent In war. It was wrong and mean, and was
very little better man an enort to subsist me
soldiers by setting men in tbe fence corners to
steal tbe children's dinners.
Mr. CONVERSE concurred with Mr. Hills.
Mr. PLANTS said this arrangement of the
levy was an old acquaintance tbat be bad often
seen in this House; and be did not like bim any
better in his regimentals than in other drees.
Mr. ,r LAuti explained tne necessity oi econ
omy at tbis time, and showed that this amend
ment would not materially affect tbe school
fund; and the levy would only be for one year.
Mr. JONAs would not take Irom the schools;
but be thought there would not be needed so
much tbis year as last, for tbe support of
schools. He was satisfied that we could get
along, and hoped the bill would pass.
Mr. CUA opposed mis arrangement aa un
favorable to the real Interests of the cause of
eduoation. It would be tbe xuln of tbe Union
schools nearly all over the State.
Mr, STEDMAN opposed It on tbe same prin
ciple, especially the provision limiting the local
school tax.
The amendment limiting the local school tax
was disagreed to. The other amendments were
agreed to, wheL the bill was ordered to be en
grossed and read a third lime now.
The bill was read a third time, wben
Mr, FLAGG offered an amendment, striking
out tbe limit to tbe levy of cities of the first
class, which was agreed to.
Mr. PLANTS moved to amend, by restoring
the general school levy to its old rate of 1)
Mr. VORIS moved to make it mills.
Mr. WELSH hoped that these amendments
would not be adopted., lie would cut down
every possible expense. Extraordinary ex
penses have been incurred; and if the war con
tinues, there will be less attendance at schools,
and tbe schools would require less.
Mr. BKUrr supported tbe amendment of Mr,
Plants, because tbe bill outs down the gene
ral school tax, which will cut down the period
of sohools for each year, unless made up by a
local tax.
Mr. STIERS deprecated the idea of reducing
the school levy at tbis time. Tbe very fact
that we are in war la one of tbe best reasons
for keeclng up the fund and the schools; and he
hoped the bill would be amended, . Otherwise
he conld not vote for it.
Mr. WRIGHT, of Hamilton, desired to call
the attention of the House to tbe fact that the
whole amount of school fund raised in the State
from all sources was three and a half millions,
of which five-sixths is appropriated to the pay
ment of teachers, and one-sixth Is levied for
sites, building repairs and contingent expenses.
Tbe diminution or tne sonooi tuna would be
about ten per cent, under this bill. This was
very small matter, aa me local tax was. in
few, If any ot tht counties, up to two mills,
which amount township boards of education
aretauthorixed to assess for prolonging schools.
In but few, if any, ot tbe counties la tbe
local tax equal to tbe amount author
ized by law, and In several of them it Is
less than one mill. This applies particularly
to those counties that keep tbeir schools in ope
ration less time than is required by law. Now,
if gentlemen are as sincere and honest In their
desire to keep schools in operation In tbe present
emergency aa they protess, tbey will look to It,
that their counties levy a greater local tax
Tbey should not desire nor expect to educate
without local expenses. The burthenB, In this
hour of our country's perils, should be equal

A compound remedy, designed to be the most
effectual Alterative that can be made. It is
concentrated extract of Para Saraaparilia,
so combined with other substances of still
greater alterative power as to afford an effec
tive antidote for tho diseases Sarsaparilla is
reputed to cure. It is believed that such a
remedy ia wanted by those who suffer from
Strumous complaints, and that one which will
accomplish their cure must prove of immense
service to this large class of our afflicted fellow
citizens. How completely this compound will
do it has been proven by experiment on many
of the worst cases to be found of the following
complaints :
Scrofula and Scrofulous Complaints,
Euuptions and Eruptive Diseases, Ulcers,
Pimples, Blotches, Tumors, Salt Rheum,
Scald Head, Stphilis and Syphilitic Af
fections, Mercurial Dise asb, Dropsy, Neu
raloia or Tic Douloureux, Debility, Dys
pepsia and Indioestion, Erysipelas, Rose
or St. Anthony's Fire, and indeed the whole
class of complaints arising from Impurity op
tub Blood.
This compound will he found a great pro
moter of health, when taken in tho spring, to
expel tho foul humors which fester in tho
blood at that season of the year. By the time
ly expulsion of them many rankling disorders
are nipped in the bud. . Multitudes con, by
the aid of this remedy, spare themselves from
the endurance of foul eruptions and ulcerous
sores, through which the system will strive to
rid itself of corruptions, if not assisted to do
this through the natural channels of the body
by an alterative medicine. Cleanse out the
vitiated blood whenever you find its impurities
bursting through the skin in pimples, eruptions,
or sores; cleanse it when you find it is ob
structed and sluggish in the veins; cleanse it
whenever it is foul, and your feelings will tell
you wben. .Even where no particular disorder
is felt, people enjoy better health, and live
longer, for cleansing the blood. Keep the
blood healthy, and all is well ; but with this
Eabulum of life disordered, there con be no
isting health. Sooner or later something
must go wrong, and the great machinery of
life is disordered or overthrown.
Sarsaparilla has, and deserves much, the
reputation of accomplishing these ends. But
the world has been egregiouBly deceived by
preparations of it, partly because the drug
alone has not all the virtue that is claimed
for it, but more because many preparations.
pretending to be concentrated extracts of it,
contain but little of the virtue of Sarsaparilla,
or any imng eie.
During late years the public have been mis
led by large bottles, pretending to give a quart
ot .Extract of barsaparula lor one doHar. Most
of theso have been frauds upon the sick, for
they not only contain little, if any, Sarsapa
rilla, but often no curative properties whatev
er. Hence, bitter and painful disappointment
has followed tho use of the various extracts of
Sarsaparilla, which flood the market, until the
name itself is justly despised, and has become
synonymous with imposition and cheat. Still
we call this compound Sarsaparilla, and intend
to supply such a remedy as shall rescue the
name front the load of obloquy which rests
upon it. vAnd we think ve have ground for
believing it lias virtues which ore irresistible
by the ordinary run of the diseases it is intend
ed to cure. In order to secure their complete
eradication from the system, the remedy should
be judiciously taken according to directions on
tho bottle. '
