Army Purchases—"Regular" and "Irregular."
AdjutsntrGoneral Thomas, in hi, report,
lav s much Btresi npon the fact that Qenoral
Fremont has made, many of his arm- pur
chases In an "irregular", manner; that the
articles had not been regnlnrly ndTertier
for by the regular officer, whose duty it was
to make the purchases.
This, eren if true, is a poor argument
Bgnisit the competency of General Fremont
to command an army. It should be the duty
of a commnndiDg General to supply his army
with those things .necessary and Indispensa
ble for its use, even though, in so doing, he
should have in the nature of circumstances
to resort to some irregularities.
Now, it is a fact, apparent to the mind of
every clear-beaded business man, that pnr
rhnses of certain articles caa be m.vle to bet
ter ad van! age in the manner which the Adjutant-General
charges . as irregular, . than
by his regular method. We will take
a cafe in point :
A few weeks since the Quartermaster-
General paid a flying visit to St. Louis to
look into Fremont's affairs, and while there
we presume it occurred to him that he must
do something regular in order to show Fre
mont's irregularities, and forthwith there
appears an advertisement for, together with
other articles in like large quantities, ten
thousand uns of hay. At that time hay
was worth in this market, the cheapest in
the country, and at points of delivery on the
river between this city and Louisville, from
$7 to $8 per tun. The cost of transportation
to St. Louie would be $4 per tun, making the
hay cost, delivered at St. Louis, from $11 to
$12 per tun.
Kw this contract for ten thousand tuns
was awarded in the regular way to a batch
of political contractors at $17 95 per tun, or
at a cost of more than $60,000 to the Govern
ment more than it need to have cost.
The effect of this Tegular advertisement,
together with others which have since ap
peared for the same article, was to advance
the price from $2 to $3 per tun upon the
very article the Government was desiring to
purchase cheap. .
Complaint isalsomadeof tne construction
of a pontoon bridge at Paducah, and that no
advertisement for the purchase of materiaLi
Whether or not the bridge was necessary,
we shall not discuss, but we presume that
General Fremont thought it was. General
Fremont had just taken possession of Pa
ducah, an important strategic point, by a
small body of troops all he could spore for
that purpose. It was an advance into the
enemy' country, and a prudent commander
must observe great prudence and caution.
Pillow, with a large force, variously esti
mated at from thirty to sixty thousand, wag
within thirty to fifty-miles, and reported to
be advancing on Paducab. Fremont, having
an eye to the safety of bis troops, saw that,
should they be attacked and overpowered by
a superior force, they had no possible means
of escape and must be captured. Any one
having a knowledge of the position of Pa
ducah will see this. Bounded as it is by the
Tennessee and Ohio Rivers, had a superior
force come upon onr little army there, with
out fortifications or intrenchinents as they
were, they couff not have escaped even by
the aid of an old scow, or the ferry-boat,
which the Adjutant-General suggests would
have been much cheaper. Fremont,Mn order
to prevent any such possible calamity, con
eludes to construct a bridge, and to do
spends $100,000 irregularly and unnecessa
rily, as the Adjutant-General thinks.
Now, the second count in this charge
that the bridge was built without any adver
tisement having been made for materials.
it' can be shown that the materials cost no
more or less in this way than they would
have cost by advertising for them, we
presume the charge has no weight. We
ere informed that the average cost of the
barges for the construction of the bridge
was about $400 each. Also that the aver
age cost of these barges when new was
about $750. That all the barges takea
were good and sea worthy. Now it would
seem that these purchases were fairly
made, and that the prices paid were not high.
It required for the bridge all the good barges
here they were wanted at once; and had
advertisement appeared calling for that num
ber of barges, the owners, who knew how
many were here, might have asked much
more for them. A weightier reason, however,
for the purchase of these bridge materials,
was this : That it was not thought by the
General desirable to inform the rebel com
mander, through the newspapers, which were
at that time going regularly into Eentncky
and the South, that he intended constructing
a pontoon bridge, to save his army in case
they were attaoked by superior forces. ,
The whole offense of Fremont in this and
all other matters seems to be that be dared
to think and act without a close consulta
tion with all the Departments, which would
only have been furnishing the enemy with
plans. His Adjutant General, however, con
cluded to dog Fremont through Missouri,
ascertain bis forces and their disposition,
nlans and ODerations. In order that they may

A Frightful Boiler Explosion— Coffee and
Spice Mills in Ruins—Five Men Scalded.
Between eleven and twelve o'clock this
morning a fearful explosion occurred in tbe
cqff'ee and spice establishment of Measrs.
Downer 4c Co, Ixos. 43 ana 45 r'ranklin
street, between Lake and Randolph, causing
tbe complete wreck of tbe lower portions of
the building and its contents, and seriously
injuring a number of the occupants.
In tbe confusion incident to the explosion
it was impossible to obtain full and definite
particulars, but such as . could be gathered
Tbe boiler was situated in tbe basement of
the store No. 48, nearest Lake-street, and in
the extreme rear, but abont six feet remain
ing between its end and the rear wall of the
building for firing purposes. It was well
covered with brick masonry, upon the top of
which sat the engine that drove tbe machin
ery of the establishment. The rest of the
basement was used for storage and packing
purposes, i ne lott above, constituting the
firBt floor of the store No. 43, was used for
grinding epicos and ether purposes' incident
to its manufacture. ' The adjoining store was
occupied as a saleroom ana office, and com
municated with No. 43 by an open partition.
just previous to tne explosion, tne engi
neer Lynch was in one of the upper apart
mente, and noticing some irregularity in the
running of the machinery, hastened below
to see what was the matter. When he
reached tbe engine-rocm he discovered that
tue main driving belt bad run on from its
brum, and the engine was pounding away
with fearful velocity. Just at this instant
the explosion occurred with a report equal
to a pieee of heavy ordnance. The explo
sion seemed to be rearward through the
fire-box, throwing scraps of iron aud brick
through the wall and across the alley, and
completely shattering a frame building on
the opposite side of the alley. But tbe most
singular incident was the reaction of the
explosion on the boiler, which forced it from
its setting, bodily, electing it through the
front of the building and completely acro?s
the street, a distance of upward of a hundred
feet from its original location. In its night
it tore away the flooring of the main room
above, knocked the front of the store into
fragments, tore np the steps and gratings
coveting the front way, struck end capsized
a dray that was passing in tbe street, in
juring the driver somewhat, and demolished
a muggy Binuuiuff iu iuu umiuMie uubier.
At the time ot tbe explosion there were.
it is supposed, nineteen men in the building
fifteen workmen, three clerks and Mr. Joshua
Downer, one of the proprietors.
Mr. Downer was standing in tbe front part
of tbe room abovo the engine, and was badly

saved the building trom total ruin, aud saved
tbe lives ot a number ot tbe occupants.
Tbe boiler was eighteen feet in length by
r j. . r. r .
ruur in uiHuieicr. it was manuraciurea in
Patterson, N. J., five years ago, since which
time it bag been in constant use. It was
patched about three years ago, and it was at
this patch that the explosion occurred. The
immediate cause can not now be stated.
Thk Oil Tram. Many who read the ac
counts of oil wells in this and other States,
says Ibe Philadelphia Ledger, are, perhaps,
curiowa to know whether the business ot
procuring coal-oil in this way is profitable
or otherwise. A recently-published state
ment shows that the amount of this oil trans
ported to a market over tbe We? tern division
ot the Philadelphia and Erie Railroad dur
ing the past months of 1861, had greatly
and progressively increased over the
quantity transported over tbe same route
duiing tbe corresponding period of last year.
The editor, bowever, ot the Jtural Argus,
paper published in the Western part of the
State, has recently visited the oil regions,
and gives the result of bis observations in
late number ot bis journal. Among other
remarks, be says that the price of oil is so
low that nothing short ot a bowing well will
pay. And even a flowing well,-be asserts,
may endanger the financial standing of its
owner by compelling bim to incur great ex
pense in tbe purchase of barrels before any
return can be had. He adds, moreover, that
innumerable troubles attend the business
every stage of its progress. A few have
made themselves rich by it, and a few more
will do the same thing, while a vast majority
of those who have invested in it and who
will yet do so, will, it is thought, never realize
one per cent, on the investment. Tbe rapid
increase in the expenditure and consumption
of this oil would seem to give a contradiction
to this conclusion. It some can make for
tunes at the business, others, nnder like cir
cumstances, can do the same thing.

hension of the position of Lord Lyons to

a fang telegram, dated Uctober 25, says
the Sfonilew to-day contains the following :
a judicial investigation has established the
fact that the congregation of the ladies of St.
Lnione, at Doui, have voluntarily abetted
tbe abduction of Jewish girls. The facts
would have justified the Government in re
voking the authorization of the society of St,
Unione, but it bag confined itself to with
holding tbe acknowledgement of its legal
existence. This measure will remind relig
ious congregations that neither their charac
ter, objects nor rules excuse them from
obeying the laws of tho country.

Philadelphia, November 4 In the Cir

pirates ot tbe teirel was called, but postponed
till next Monday.
While the Assistant District Attorney was
urging the trial. Judge Grier said he could
not consent to have the regular business
tbe Court interrupted. It seemed like
farce to try them at this time, when the
country played civil war. The dictated
humanity would counsel the Government
treat captives on the sea the game as those
taken on laud, and be could not understand
the policy of banging the first and holding
the latter aa prisoners and releasing tbem.

tbat it may be speedily, and then these men
can be tried for treason or piracy, and

of his Removal.
[Special to the St. Louis Republican.]

October 31. A good deal of excitement has
firevailed in cttno for some days past respect
ng the report of Fremont's supersession, but
Washington advices at head-quarters men
tion nothing of the kind.
Fremont's removal would cause Intense
excitement, and we siupect no little trouble
in the camp.
A number of officers declare they would
resign in that event, or insist upon creating
him Dictator of the South-west, independent

nounced in camp, for its vascillat.lng and in
judicious policy respecting this department.

American Missions in Switzerland.
A corespondent of the Boston Advertiser,
writing from Lausanne, Switzerland, nnder
date of September 27, gives this account of
the American - Missions established in that
There are several missions in Switzerland,
which have been founded and cherished by
American benevolence. We were present
at a meeting held by one of tbem last even
ing, one founded by the New York Method
ists. The room was crowded, and those
present were exclusively Germans, most of
tbem from the humbler grades of society.
Many were laborers and mechanics whose
time was fully occupied during the day, and
who could, therefore, only attend in the
evening. The pastor, a very intelligent Ger
man gentleman, opened the meeting by giv
ing a brief but clear account of tbe reaaona
why he had called his people together, and
what was meant by praying for the United
states. Alter concluding bis remarks and
making a brief prayer, he invited those
present to continue. As is customary with
this denomination, both men and women
accepted the invitation. Many of those
present bad relatives in the United States,
others had received assistance trom the
American missionary friends, and all of them
bad some tie to bind them to the distant re
public which they had never seen.
I have never in my life heard such earn
est, devoted supplications as those men and
women made. Maoy of them in rough
words, but with a spirit that sanctified their
words. People such as they were, accus
tomed to the hard work and practical think
ing necessary to earn their daily bread, do
not hold prayer meetings with vague notions
of tome general edification to be obtained
thereby; they come together, and these peo
ple came together, because they wanted
something, and they asked for it as if they
wanted it, with tbeir whole souls. One
woman prayed for a brother who bad left
two years ago, and had never written since.
She did not know on which side he was
fighting, but be had been a soldier, and she
felt sure he was one now. And she prayed
the Lojjdto make him defend the holy cause,
and to 3r& Jnsjieart if he had joined the
Another woman' had a dear friend in the
loyal camp at Washington, and prayed for
bim ana his adopted land. Ana thus, with
out ceasing, during the allotted time, prayer
was made unto God with an earnestness
personal entreaty that kept tears in my eyes.
And wben the meeting was over, certain
biown-fisted men came around me and took
my band with a warmth and rugged tender
ness of sympathy which had no tendency
diminish my emotion.
