W. H. Irwin has so regulated his department
as to give satisfaction to the soldier and main

as for his impartial determination to benefit and
promote the comfort of the soldier. This is

Within a day or two there have been several
cases of open robbery and two or three murders.
The town is filling up with thieves, pickpockets,
gamblers, and other desperate characters, at
tracted there by the great influx of visitors and
the constant presence of army officers at the
hotels. It is estimated that there are from ten
to twenty thousand additional persons now in
Washington, not in the army, who go there
to see their friends and to make money in va
rious ways out of the soldiers congregated in
the vicinity. .
Tns LEBANON Comma complains that we
credited an article to the 7ioga Agitator, which
appeared originally in the editorial columns of.
the Cbarier. So much really able matter is
printed editorially by Worth, that he must not
complain if the hebdomidal press of the state
occasionally, use his brains. It is plagiarized
for a good purpose by our cotemporaries, though
we are always consciencious in giving credit to
the Courier. The Agiiator, hereafter, must be

A lELiirr evidence of the good offices of the
press to the army has just been developed in
Western Virginia. The troops were badly
fed and clothed. For weeks requisitions had
been made in vain. The press took hold of the
matter, and in two weeks' time the change was
wonderful. It is said that a more pleasant,
agreeable and industrious set of fellows can no
where be found than the Quartermasters of
Western Virginia are at this time. They are

THE CHARGE AGAINST FREMONT.
The Secretary of War, occompanied by one
of the highest staff officers in the 'United States
Army, General Thomas, as is well known to the
public, recently visited the Military Department
of the West, under the command of General
Fremont, for the purpose of inspecting the op
erations of the army in that quarter, as well as
to investigate the facts in relation to certain
charges made as to the management of the pub-
lic service in that section of the country. The
duty was both arduous and delicate, involving
the exercise of much skill and discretion in its
successful performance. In these respects our
readers will admit that Secretary Cameron was
well fitted for the work, as there are few men
in the country with greater adrein'atrative
ability, or who possess, to a larger degree, the
experience which would enable him to judge
and decide, not only upon the necessity but
also the economy of work such as that which
is under the control of Gen. Fremont, involv
ing large expense in money and men, and a still
greater risk of credit and success. Since General
Fremont has been at the head of the Western Di
vision of the Army, he has bad the exercise of
an unlimited discretionary power, reposed in
him by the President and the cabinet, because
the people had confidence in his military capac
ity and courage. It was alleged that he had
abused this power, by arrogant assumptions and
the establishment of tyranical distinctions in
his command. Such allegations did not fail
to arouse the brave people of the west, and
from these other charges arose, until the declar
ation became unmistakable that General Fre
mont was not only guilty of an unwarranted
assumption of power, but he was boldly charg
ed with wasting the public money and using
the credit of the government to a degree not
warranted by his position or the power vested
in him by the President of the United States.
On our first page this afternoon, we print the
report of Adjutant General Thomas, to the Sec
retary of War, setting forth in detail an account
of a visit to Missouri, the investigation had
while inspecting the military works in that
locality, with the testimonyof prominent officers
and respectable indivi• luals as to the capacity of
Gen. Fremont to command and control the
forces and interests of the country in the De
partment of the West. Our readers must not fail
to read this document, because it emenates from
a perfectly reliable and responsible officer, and
because also it establishes certain facts which
will relieve the President from all censure should
Gen. Fremont be removed, and satisfy the
country that the removal was justified by a re
gard for the success of our struggle to conquer a
lasting peace for the country, without involving
all its interests in irretrievable bankruptcy, and
bequeathing to posterity a load of indebtedness
which it would require centuries to liquidate.
The irregularity practiced by Gen. Fremont, ac
cording to the testimony of the report, goes to
show the want of military forethought on his
part, in directing the necessary means for put
ting into and maintaining in the field the force
under his command ; while Gen. Hunter; the
second in command, expressed to the Secretary
of War, his decided opinion that Gen. Fremont
We do not desire to print editorially any
more decided opinion on this subject, than that
which is conveyed, by this report, and in the
evidence it quotes of some of the most reliable
and substantial men in St. Louis. General
Fremont will be fortunate if hesean clear him
self of the odium of these charges, and so far
as he is concerned, we tiust that he may be able
to offer such facts and arguments in extenuation
of his conduct, as will relieve him of the suspi
cion under which he now rests. We trust that
our readers will peruse this report, and in the
meantime, when General Fremont makes his
defence, we will also print it in full for their
consideration, provided that it does not occupy
more space than the report of Adjutant General
Thomas. In this business. we desire to deal
fairly with the party accused and the power
which seeks the good of the country, making
our columns neither the source through which
Gen. Fremont shall be traduced, nor allowing
them to be used to screen him from answering
before that tribunal, the people, before which all
civil servants and military officers are amenable.
Editor of the Pennsylvania Telegraph
For the benefit of such sheets as the Patriot
and Union and other journals of like ilk, who,
after being warned against further utterance of
their treasonable sentiments, give vent to their
malice by charging upon such Republican coun
ties as Bradford, a want of patriotism hi furnish
ing volunteers to put down the rebellion, allow
me to give your readers a correct list of the
forces furnished by that noble old county, who
have enlisted to fight for the maintenance of
the government as it was transmitted to us
from our fathers. Bradford has furnished men
as follows, viz :
Capt. Trout's company, sth regiment, Col.
- Capt. Gore's company, 6th regiment, Col.
Capt• Bradbury's company, 6th regiment,
.1. Rickett. •
Capt. Gustin's company, 12th regiment, CoL

Capt. Lither's company, Camp Curtin.
To which add 100 men recruited there for the
regular army. Add also, 300 men, enlisted
early, in the southern tier regiments of the
state of New York. Full 1700 men are now in
service from this county, and they are now
offering to raise a regiment in addition to the
above force, when consent can be obtained from
the Governor. VEszess.

A few days ago the rebels sent a small boat
from Qutintico creek over toward Budd's Ferry,
having a flag of truce. When she had ap
proached within two or three hundred yards of
the Maryland shore, a barrel with something
attached to it was thrown overboard and the
boat immediately termed and put back to the
Virginia shore. The barrel was supposed to
contain an internal machine.
A letter received to-day from Darnestown
says that the rebels now picket Barrison's Island
and that reliable intelligence from Leesburg
gives information that on Tuesday succeeding
the fight at Ball's Bluff the rebels withdrew
their forces from Leesburg on our troops being
thrown over at Edward's Ferry, leaving only a
few battallions to keep up appearances and
watch our movements. They subsequently
took away all their supplies and were at the
latest accounts resting on Goose creek, seven
miles south of Leesburg.
A foraging expedition was despached to
Shroud's farm, fuur miles northwest from Fall's
Church. A picket was here captured and sent
to headquarters, and voluntarily disclosed the
fact that the rebel pickets were stationed a short
distance from the farm, Capt. Norton accom
plished the object of his mission.
The prisoner's name is C. R. Bell, a private of
oompauy 0, Sixth Regiment Louisiana volun
teers, commanded by Colonel Seymour, editor
of the New Orleans Commercial Bulletin. The

that there is a continuous range of rebel camps,
including sixty thousand Virginians under Gus
tavus W. Smith, and an equal number of North
Carolinians and Louisianians. Some fifteen thou

west, in Virginia, to do picket duty there, re

Fairfax by the rebels was caused by a belief
that the Yankees" were touring upon them.
His statement is not much credited.
It is reported that two schooners, laden with
hay and other Government stores, were captur
ed by; the rebels yesterday. They attempted to
run the blockade. A gentleman, who came
up from Port Tobacco this morning, reports that
the rebels occasionally fire at the men who are
working on the fortifications now being thrown
up by General Sickles and General Hooker.
Sometimes the shot pass inland half a mile.
At other times they fall short. It is believed
now that communication with the rebels from
the Maryland shore is entirely cut off. It ap
pears that the rebels are strengthening their
old batteries and erecting new ones all along
the Virginia shore. 'the large body of rebels
who were encamped in the vicinity of Fairfax,
it is thought, have been sent down to strength
en these batteries. They, no doubt, are in dread
of an attack by land and water.
A reconnoisance was made yesterday by Gen.
Sickles and staff, accompanied by a squad of
Indiana cavalry, along the shore of the Poto
mac, about forty miles below Washington, when
they were fired at by a battery on the Virginia
shore. One of the shots fell short, and another
passed over them.
To-day the pickets of General Wadsworth
captured a private of a South Carolina regiment
about three miles from Falls Church.
There seems to be no doubt that the rebels
have a large number of fiat-boats at Occoquan
creek, manufactured at Fredericksburg, and de
signed for crossing the Potomac.
Accounts received from along the line of the
Potomac, from Lewinsville to Alexandria, rep
resent everything quiet. Reconnoissances were
made yesterday afternoon, which prove very
conclusively that the 'rebel forces are being
withdrawn to Centreville and the vicinity of
DJUTANT GENERAL THOMAS' REPORT IN
ComMunioation 'from E. M. Darii t
E. M. Davis, Assistant Quartermaster under
Fremont, writes a letter to Adjutant General
Thomas, under date Philadelphia yesterday,
correcting some errors in reference to himself,
published in the latter's report to Gen. Cameron.
He says Fremont did not give him any con
tract for blankets or anything else. He pur
chased blankets in his official capacity and de,
nies they were condemned as rotten and worth
less. When the report of the Board reached
Fremont he expressed great displeasure and re
quired the blankets to be returned._
The only fault that could be found with his
purchase was the economy practiced in making
it—the average price being one dollar and forty
cents for each blanket. They were partcotton.
He can only account for the misstatements from
the fact that when Thomas was in St. Loui s
Davis was confined to his bed and that Thomas
presumed from the reports that he heard that
he had the whole truth before him in reference
to these affairs.

robbed, Gen. Jim called the citizens of Pleasant
Hill together, beneath the glorious Union flag,
and entertained them with a live American
speech. Pointing to the ensign he had raised,
he said to them ; "That flag has been your pro
tection, and shall be still. So long as it re
mains here you are safe ; but if it is cut down,
by the Eternal I will return and burn your

The affaired occurred about two weeks ago, and

to be about all secessionists, that flag is still waving
over the town.—St. Louis Democrat, Oct. 29.
