CINCINNATI. WEDNESDAY EVENING NOVEMBER 6, 1861.
The Report of General Thomas on Fremont.
Allusion has been made to a report by
Adjutant General Thomas, who accompanied
Secretary Cameron to St. Louis, on the mai-
apemcntof the military department of the
West by General Fremont. The important
points cfthe document, which is a very
leoglby one, are contained in the following
INTERCOURSE OF FREMONT WITH HIS OFFICERS.
General Curtis en id of General Fremont
that be found no difficulty in Retting access
to him, and when be presented businej? con
nected with bis command it was attended to.
Centra! Fremont, however, never consulted
bim on military affairs, nor informed him of
bia plans. General Curtis remarked that
while he would go with freedom to General
Scott and express bis opinions, he would not
dare to do so to General Fremont. He
deemed General Fremont unequal to the
command of an army, and said that he was
no more bound by law than by the winds.
He consideied him to be unequal to the com
mand of tbe army in Missouri.
IRREGULARITIES IN THE PAYMASTER'S DEPARTMENT.
Colonel Andrews, Chief Faymaster, called
on me (pays ueneral l nomas) ana repre
sented irregularities in the pay department,
and desired instructions from the Secretary
for bis government, stating that be was re
mit a to mane payments ana transfers or
money contrary to law and regulations.
Once objecting to what be conceived an im
proper payment, ne was tnreatenea wita
cot.finement by a file of soldiers. He exhib
ited an order for the transfer of $100,000 to
tbe Quartermaster's Department, which was
APPOINTMENT OF OFFICERS BY GEN. FREMONT.
Colonel Andrews exhibited an abstract of
payments by one Paymastr, Major Felizer,
to forty two persons appointed by General
Fremont, viz; One Colonel; three Major?;
ine (Japtainp; htteen first lieutenant?;
eleven Second Lieutenants; one Surgeon;
three Assistant Surgeons. Total forty-two.
Nineteen of these nave appointments as en
gineers, and are entitled to cavalry pay. A
second abstract of payments J was furnished,
but not Touched for as reliable, as the Pay
master was sick. It is only given to snow
he excess of officers of rank appointed to
the Major-General's Body-guard of only
tbree hundred men, the commander being
Colonel, ic. Tbe whole number of irregu
lar appointments made by ueneral r remont
waseaid.by Uolonel Andrews tone nearly
two hundred. Among tbe appointments
was ODe given to an individual on General
Fremont's Staff as director of music, with
the tank and commission of Captain of En
pincers. This person was a musician in
theater in St. Louis.
IRREGULARITIES AT ST. LOUIS.
Major Allen, principal Quartermaster; had
recently taken charge at St Louis, but re-
nnrifii oieHt irrecnlanties m thiadenartmcnt.
ported meat irregularities in this department.
and requested special instructions. This
deemed important, as orders were communi
cated by a variety of persons, In an irregular
manner, an requiring aiBoursements
money. These orders were frequently given
verbally. lie was sending, nnder General
Fremont's orders, large amounts of forage
from St. Louis to the army at Tipton, where
corn was abundant and cheap. Tbe distance
was one hundred and sixty miles, lie stated
tbe indebtedness of the Quartermaster's De
partment at St. Louis to be $4,506,309 78.2
It is' the expressed belief of many Intelli
gent gentlemen in St. Louis that General
Fremont has aVound bim, and in his staff,
persons directly and immediately concerned
in furnishing supplies. By directions
General Meigs, advertisements were pub
lished for proposals to furnish grain and bay,
and contracts were subsequently made
specific sums za cents per ousnel tor corn,
SO cents for oats, and $17 05 per tun tor hay.
In the face of this, another party in St Louis,
Baud, or liaird At rainier, ( I'aimer being
tbe 'old firm in California, Palmer, Cook
Co., General Fremont's agents in tbat State,)
were directed to send to jeuerson imy,
where bay and corn abound, as fast as possi
ble, 100,000 bushels of oats, with a corre
sponding amount of hav, at 33 cents
bushel for the grain and 1 19 per tun for bay.
Cautain Edward M. Davie, a member of
staff, received a contract by direct order
General Fremont for blankets. Tbey were
examined by a board of army officers, con
sisting of Captain Hendershott, Fourth Ar
tillery ; uaptain Harris, commissary ot sno
BineDce,' and Captain Turn ley, Assistant
Quartermaster. Tbe blankets were found
be made mostly of cotton, aud to be rotten
and worthless. Notwithstanding this decis
ion, tbev were nurchased and eiven to
eick and wounded soldiers in the hospital.
Amone the supplies sent by General Fre
mont to tbe army now in the field may
enumerated five hundred balf barrels,
carry water, in a country where water
abundant, and nve nuodred tuns ot ice.
We examined tbe barracks in course
construction at St. Louis, near and .around
i be private bouse occupied by bim as quar
ters tbe Brant House whi'.h, by-the-by,
rented ilbr $6 000 per annum. These bar
racks bave brick foundations and brick outer
walls, weatber-boaroed, and are sufficient
quarters and stables tor one thousand men.
A pontoon unuge oas ueen ereceq. across
the Ohio River by General Fremont, at Pa-
ducub. A ferry boat, in a region where such
boats are readily procured, would b just
efficient and much less expensive.
THE CAMP AT TIPTON
As soon as I obtained a view of the several
encampments at Tipton, I expressed
opinion tbattha forces there assembled could
not be' moved, as scarcely any meant
tiansportaiioo were visible. I saw General
Hunter, second in command, and conversed
fieely with him. lie stated tbat there
great confusion, and that General Fremont
was utterly incompetent, thav his own
was greatly scattered, and the force
there present defective in many respects)
he himself required one hundred wagons,
mat ue wss unuer oraera to warcu iubi
some of bis troops were already drawn
out on the road. His cavalry regiment
(Ellis's) had horses and Indifferent arms,
no equipments. The men bad to carry
cartridges in tbeir vest ' pockets coose-
Jioently on their first day's march from
City, in- a heavy rain which fell,
cartridges were destroyed.
THE GUNS PURCHASED BY FREMONT.
' ' General Hunter stated tome that he
just received a written report from one of
colonels, informing him that but twenty
of a hundred of bis guns would go

Fremont in Europe.- I will here state

Quartermaster General, at Louisville,

GENERAL OPINION OF FREMONT.
The opinion entertained by gentlemen of
position -and intelligence, who have ap
proached and observed bim, is that he is
more fond of tbe pomp than of tbe stern re
alities ot war that his mind his incapable of
fixed attention or strong concentration that
by bis mismanagement of affairs since his
arrival in Missouri the State has almost been
lost; and that if he is eontinned in command
tbe worst results may be anticipated. This
is tbe concurrent testimony ot a large num
ber of the most Intelligent men in Missouri.
The Pursuit of the Privateer Sumter.
An officer of ..the war steamer Powhatan
sends to the National Intelligencer a long ac
count of that vessel's chase of the privateer
Sumter. The following are extracts :
' We found a curions state of affairs exist
ire in Maranham, the people, from the Gov
ernor down, being Sumter-mad, and politics
running aa high aa they ever did in the
South the Brazilians sympathizing almost
to a man with the Secessionists, under tbe
impression that tbe South was fighting tbe
battle of Brazil fighting to protect their
property in slaves.
Addresses were made by Captain Semmea
to the Governor and people of Maranbatn, in
which he n?ed the most specious argument
to prove that after tbe North bad abolished
slavery in the Southern 8tates she would
turn ber attention to abolishing slavery in
tbe Brazilian Empire. Of course tbe arrival
of the 1'ovihatan was looked noon with dis
trust, and a reward of five hundred dollars
(made by an American) to any one who
would knock a hole in her bottom so tbat
she could not follow tbe Sumter was received
with erent favor, tbe Government taking no
steps to stop such rroceedinirs.
In all communities there are weak minded
people who can not keep a secret intrusted to
tbem; there were some such in Maraoham.
Captain Semmes particular friends let out
many facts in relation to bis movements
which be would rather have kept Becret.
We found out all we wanted to know about
tbe Sumter, what coal she could stow, what
was her speed, what number of men and
what kind of crew she bad, and where she

Sharpshooters in tbe Army. The "An
drew Sharpshooters," who rendered sue
signal service at Edwards' Ferry Jast week
when General Stone crossed a portion of bis
column, are armed wiih heavy telescopic
riUcS, which, in practiced bands, are deadly
at a distance of thtee-quarters of a mile.
Tbe company was organized and accepted
mainly through the exertions of Senator
Nortbend of Salem, Mass., who prevailed
upon Governor Andrew to give the experi
ment a trial, notwithstanding the unfavor
able opinion of military men about the State
house. The company, indeed, has been re
garded by military men generally as fanciful
and ini-'lficient, but tbe experience at Ed
wards' Ferry and Ball's Bluff will probably
open tbeir eyes to the importance of this new
aim of tbe service when properly used. At
Bali's Blnff our principal loss, especially in
I officers, was from then sharpshooters of tbe
enemy. Tbe loss from platoon tiring was in
significant, and in tbe only bayonet charge
which the enemy attempted tbey -were seat
to tbe ritiht about in double quick time. At
Edwards Ferry the Andrew Sharpshooters
checked tbe advance of a.rebel force of nearly
tbtee thousand, every ball tbey used hitting
a rebel and the force was completely re
pulsed by the help ot a few sliots from Rictc
etv'a battery . 1 . . '
Families Divided by thi Civa, War
Tbe division of families in the war is strik
ingly illnstrated in the case of two of the
most distinguished families in Kentucky.
Henry Clay, tbe grandson of the statesman,
is Assis'ant Adjutant under Brigadier-General
Richard W. Johnson, in Kentucky. His
uncle, James B. Clay, it violent Secession
ist) now under bonds to appear for trial for
treason. ' Another uncle Thomas, in the
1 lined States service is responsible for the
appearance for trial of Jamel B. Clay. 1
brother, Thomas Clay, jr., is oa the Btaff
General Beauregard. Hit sisters husband,
with whom young Clay resides in Louisville,
has lately entered tbe United 8tates service,
with two other brothers, for the war. Here
is another example: John J. Crittenden has
one son who ia a Brigadier General in tbe
rebel service, after having served and been
honoied by the Government for many years.
Another son is a Brigadier-General in the
Army of the Union, but holding his com
mission from the State of Kentucky. An
other holds the rank of Captain in tbe Fede
ral Army. John J. Crittenden himself,
tbe age or seventy-six, bears arms a a pri
vate in the Home Quard of Frankfort.

The Closing of the Potomac.
Every succeeding dispatch from Fortress
Monroe or Washington, sayt the Philadelphia
Ledger, telle us a new battery has been dis
covered upon the Potomac. For all practical
purposes, that river might as well have no
existence, for it is closed entirely to naviga
tion, to the no small inconvenience of the
army and the Government. Occasionally
we hear that the Government means to take
some action toward opening the navigation.
This we should suppose was one of the first
duties of the army. It is almost as necessary
to keep tbe Potomac open as it Is to keep up
the communication witn Washington through
Baltimore. If few batteries can not be
dislodged there by the force which can be
brought against them, the expectation that
fottitied harbors further South can be as
saulted and easily carried must, be a fallacious
one. A little ol tbe energy ot tbe army and
navy expended on the rebel side of the Poto
mac would probably be attended with happy
effect. If successful, it would, at least, re
move a great inconvenience, and possibly
also some deprivation to the army.
-- Witn but a single line of railroad to tup
ply Washington, the difficulties of doing to
are largely increased, and subject, as this
communication may be by the accident of a
bridge burning, to be entirely cat on, tne
danger of Btopping all supplies and of pre
venting our troops from easily reaching
there becomes imminent. The Government
would then be in a worse condition than it
has yet been placed in. While the Potomac
was open, it baa easy access to vv asoingtou,
no matter what resistance it met wiw in
Marvland. But this avenue closed, and the
route through Maryland obstructed, it
would be left in rather a helpless condition.
with a large army for defense it is true, but
surrounded on all sides by enemies, and
every day more and more weakened by the
absence of its supplies. No army like this,
upon which tbe existence of tbe Union de
pei as, ought to be reduceu to tne necessity
of receiving its supplies by only one means
of communication, which it is possible to
obstruct either designedly or through the
action of the elements.

Genert 1 Price. .
It has been announced that the campaign
In Missouri is a contest for boundaries. So
it is regarded by the disunion statesmen
Richmond, and to it is regarded by the
prominent men in the " Missouri State
Guard." Thousands of dollars' worth
property has been removed from the upper
side of tbe Missouri River, to tbe country
below; Martin Green and General Harris
beve abandoned tbe fields of their early " tri
umphs," and united with the main body
the rebel soldiery ; and, indeed, North Mis
souri has been left to the Union by tbe gen
eral consent of the Confederate politicians
It is very evident to all who lay claim
tbe least sagacity, that whichever way the
greater pert of the State falls. North Missouri
ia incontestibly to be on the Bide of

A Georgian on Secession. A letter just

day small bodies Of the enemy came within
twelve miles or us, ana news was received ot
the approach of tbeir advance column, two
thousand eight hundred strong. Prepara
tions were mah log to go ont and attack them,
when ueneral remont received the uncon
ditional order from Washington, relieving
him at once from his command. Simulta
neously came the newspapers announcing
the fact. Tbe intelligence spread like wild
fire through the camps, and created inde
scribable excitement and indignation. Great
numbers of otlicers signified their intention
to resign at once, and many companies laid
down their arms, declaring tbey would nzht
undtr no one but Fremont. The General
spent much of the afternoon expostulating
lib tbe otucers, and urging them, by their
patriotism and tbeir personal regard for him,
cot to abandon their posts. He also Issued
the following farewell order to the troops :
"HEAD QUARTERS, Western Depart.

me anticipate tor yon a brilliant career.
Continue as you have begun, and give to my
successor tbe same cordial aud enthusiastic
support with which you have encouraged
me. Emulate tbe splendid example which
you have already before you, and let me re
main, as I am,, proud of tbe noble army
which 1 bad thus far labored to bring to

Tbe feeling ran intensely high during the

A Domestic Editor.
Everybody will laugh at the following. It
is one of tbe good things tbat Mr. Chandler,
of tbe Adams County ( Wis.) Independent, oc
casionally "gets off:"
Our Shanghai editor is a married man a
very married man, keeps two cows, calf, bens,
hens' husbands. Fautt horse, no dog, gay
sleigh, and sich like quadrupeds, lie believes
in having milk in tbe family; and verily
'twould please thee to witness the farmatorial
airs ht puts on, and ihe editorial airs
he puts olt, as he goes tortu like a nower,
and runneth amoog tbe hens and milketh ye
bovines. Belike his dignity went rapidly
down t'other night. New milch cow taketh
to herself a certain pleasant habit of ex
tending binder hoof with a yank. ..
Editor sat beside lacteaLglands, pail clasped
'twnt bis knees, and thus engaiged in teat
squeezing be was heard to utter, in a very
solemn tone: "Kick not that ye be not
kicked; for with what violence ye kick, yt
shall be kicked; and with what measure ye
eat fiom, it shall be swatted over your coun
tenance." Anon the bossy kicked like forked light
ning, laying out Shanghai Chandler flat on
his back, completely painting him with
foamy cow juice, flipping his hat far to the
leeward, jamming np tbe tin milk-pall like
a stepped on stove-pipe, and causing a white
editor to spout milk from his nose like
And then the wail that was heard was
this: "She hath lain my confidence waste
and barked my shin; she hath made the
mi k-pail clean baaty and cast the milk
away ; tbe front of Shanghai is made jrhits.

So saying he emote the cow with a terrible
curse, saying, "Darn your skint" Then
kicked her just one kick, with such force
tbat he raid he bad driven his toe-nail close
back to his heel, and went in and asked Mrs.
Editor to wash bim off. Selah.
The inquiry 'is often made of late, "What
Is a gunny bag T"' Tbe London Mechanics
Magazine tells us all about it:
It is a bag made from the coarse spun fibers
of a plant which grows in India, of which
there are many varieties. Oa the Coroman
del coast tbis plant is called Goni, and
"gunny" is a corruption of this name.
The ' cultivation, of the ehuii, jute
"gunny" has been carried on for centuries
Bengal, and gives employment to tens
thousands of inhabitants.
"Men, women, and children," says' Mr.
Henley, "find occupation there. Boatmen,
in their spare moments, plan keen carriers
and domestic servan'S every body, in fact,
be ng Hindoos for Mussurmans suiu cotton
only pass tbeir leisure moments, distaff
hard, spinning gunny twist."
Tbe patient ana despised Hindoo widow
earns ber bread in this way. It is said that
three ' hundred thousand tuns of jute are
grown in India, of which one hundred thou
sand tuns sre exported as gnnny bags, besides
one hundrtd thousand tuns in a raw state.
A London company has established a manu
factory in Calcutta a tan expense of 300,000.
Tbe gunny bag it used tor a great variety
of purposei,. Sugar, coffee, spices, cotton,
drugs indeed, almost every article which
we pack in dry casks and In boxes, ia, in the
East, packed in gunny bags. It is also made
into mats, carpets, ropes, paper, and various
other articles. - '
' It Is related that tbe old gnnny bags
which contained sugar are sold to the beer
makers, who sweeten their beer by boiling
tbe sugar ont of tbe bags and then selling
tbem to the mat makers. - 1
' Some six to ten millions of gunnlnt are ex-
K oi ted to tbis country from India, mostly
orth America, besides some four to
thousand tuns of the rope and raw jute.
There are no manufactories of jute cloth
this country ; though it is here made
WbtB used for purposes of defense

than hemp or flax bags of the same suangth,
but are much cheaper.
