THE UNITED STAES SANITARY COMMISSION. From tho Medieul Surgical Importer. Kvery few weeks tho "United States Sanilury Commission" appears before tho puiiuc in a new roio in llio urt ol money .'getting, It seems determined to make its , Commission profess to accomplish, viz: tho prevention of diseaso iu , camp nnd hospital, and tho care ol the I sick nod wounded scldicr. e linvo sonic vcrv serious nbip..(ioii! to thU CrriV.lxalion nnd its way of doinc . ollsiness. In tho fust l.biee. llm thin- it- self is founded on a false issue, and is a j standing insult to two Government thro' its medical department. It wis started on the plea of necessity, to nccomiilish luties that it was the acknowledged busi ness of fhc medical bureau to perform. Granted thnt thero may have been n plaus ible excuse for its existetico for a timo as an ailjunct to tho medical department, just as our militia and emergency men have on two or three occasions been called us mi urn to too nnny, why has it not gracefully retired when its services wero no longer neoded? I'ecauao it ha3 assumed to perform tho legitimate work of the medical department is no proof that it is needed. Tho department is ful ly competent to perform all the work that the Commission has taken out of its hands, and we think thut its continual appeals to the public for money now, for many of the oljccts for which they aro made are tantamount to a fraud on tho community- Ono of tho strongest arguments used by the Commission in its appeals, is tho ne cessity cf supplying tho sick and woun ded soldier with the articles that the Gov ernment does riot furnish. That this is derogatory to tho Governraont, is well known lo those who are cognizant of whut provision is made for every emergency. This will bo mado tomcwhat apparent to our readers by tho following imperfect in ventory of the contents of one of tho store houses of the Government, taken from the Sew York Evening Post, and which we com mend to their persuaL "No person can pa through tho spa- cious rooms of tho Medical Purveyor in this city, nt tho cernyr of I'.roomo btrcet and Green, without Udng strongly nuprca- 1 red with the exteiannu minuteness 01 me 'arrangements mado for supplying our ; niilitiiry hospitals with tho necessaries and comforts which the sick and woun- .... . 1 r M . -... 1 (tea 01 ouc army require. nn ..i.i. magazines of medicines enough, 0110 would think, either to kill or cure almost norpuais was mane in uu i-n.-pij' 1 ?.o. bW P-roomo street arc mountains 01 old linen for the purpose-nags on oags I filed up to the ceiling.

It is hii insult to the government and its oflhvrs that this Commission sends its agents to over seo their work. Why doe it not tend agents to see how the President performs his work, or how the work of the depart ments or Congress is performed? Why confine its supervision to the Medical De partment? Perhaps it has secret agents at work who knows?
