The Sanitary Condition of the
• • Soldiers.
THE SICK SOLDIERS
There is a great deal of sickness north of
Washington. Measles have been very preva
lent, and - mumps have made their appearance,
diseases which are not ranked among fatal or
even dangerous ones, but which yet require a
good deal of care and faVorable circumstances
_complete recovery. Erysipelas and
pneumonia linger in their wake, and inflamed
eyes with general debility seldom fail as sequels.
A good many men from the East—trogi Maine,
New Hampshire and Vermont—are among the
sufferers; forming so large a proportion of the
sick, indeed, that it is natural to conclude that
the mildness of the season has had an unfavor
able effect upon people accustomed to the
severer skies nd more bracing atmosphere of
those Bureau' regkins. Some think, indeed,
that our mountain'oys are no exception to the
received idea which ascribes a peculiar liability
to home-sickness to the change from hardy
mountain life to lowland smoothness and relax
ation of the bodily and mental fibre. This may
be a mere fancy, but the fact is, that illness
prevails 'more extensively, if not more fatally,
among those accustomed to the tension and the
industrial excitements of New England life.
CABE OF THE SICK
As to the resources provided by private kind
ness for the use of the sick, there has been so
much said in some quarters of the superfluity of
such provision, that your correspondent has
been at some pains to ascertain the real condi
tion of things with regard to it. The truth
seems to be that, while many are aided and
comforted during illness by clothing and food
more suited to their condition than that which
is provided by the government, there is so large
a number in need that the amount sent never
has reached and probably never can reach the
point of full supply. For it must be consi
dered that the necessity is every day renewed.
The sick man who had cocoa and arrow-root,
jelly and lemon-juice yesterday, is not the
same with him who requires these alleviators
to-day ; or perhaps he who enjoyed them last
week is as much the object of sympathy now as
then. A convalescent receives a pair of warm
stockings and a pocket handkerchief, perhaps a
good muffler for his sensitive throat. When he
leaves the hospital tent and returns to the ranks
he takes these articles with him and wearsthem
out, and his successor needs another supply.
And cases of this kind are not unfrequent : A
soldier is found in bed, yet seeming nearly well.
" Why don't you get up and take some exercise
in the fresh air ? Does not the doctor allow
it ?" "Oh, yes—but I haveno shoes." "How
can that be ?' " I was brought here sick, and
now my regiment is at Hatteras," or some other
distant post. This roan has no money to, buy
shoes in tirrie'fbi his present necessity, and the
money and shoes he will have 'by-and-by do
him little good now. Some kind friend gives
the shoes, and that is the only way that the dif
ficulty can be met.

THE GOVERNOR'S MESSAGE
The Ohio Legislature organized to-day. The
Governor's message is congratulatory on the
prospect of a favorable termination of the pre
sent war, and on the general prosperity of the
State tor tile past year. He reiterated briefly
the history of the State since 1802, when the
Constitution was adopted, showing an immense
increase in wealth and population.
After devoting some space to affairs of local
interest he refers to the report of Secretary
Chase, and dissents from his plan of a national
currency as liable to many objections, and im
practicable as a measure of relief to the govern
He likewise objects to the income tax im
posed by Congress as making an unwise dis
crimination between people who are all willing
to contribute to the support of the government
in proportion to their means, and discriminating
between the United States and State securities.
Referring to military affairs, the Governor states
that on the first call of the President 92,000
men volunteered. The number of men now in
the three years' service is 77,844, of which 45,-
985 are in active service outside of the State.
This does not include citizens of Ohio who have
entered military organizations in other States,
because of the want of authority to receive
them in Ohio's contingent number of which it
is estimated at ten thogisand.
The total amount : expended for war purposes
to January Ist, 1862, including unpaid liabili
ties, is two millions three hundred and thirty
nine thousand four hundred and fifty-one dol
lars. The whole amount refunded by the
United States to Ohio is one million seventy
seven thousand six hundred .dollars. The Go
vernor thinks the ultimate effect of the war
will be the extinction of slavery; but deprecates

On motion of Mr. 'l'Rumexas (Ill.,) the bill in
relation to the judicial districts of the United-
States, altering the boundaries of certain dis
tricts, was taken up and after discussion poste
poned till Monday.
Mr. Wilson introduced a bill to dcfine and
fig the pay and emoluments of certain officers
of the army. Referred.
The Senate went into executive session and
Mr. Carrrsnors, (Ky.,) contended that this
House has no power under the Constitution to
enquire any matter purely military . .. The army
is under the President, who is
reel/mania - or its operations. To interfere with
this, therefore, would be an attempt to
extend our civil jurisdiction. The effect
would be to disavow our entire army.
He believed that the whole country has confi
dence in Gen. McClellan. We had better
weaken our army than weaken that confidence
in the General-in-Chief. An army of hares led
by a lion is more to be dreaded than an army
of lions led by a hare. The British Parliament
had exercised the right of inquiry into the con
duct of the Crimean war, but the Secretary of
War had only exercised a discretion allowed to
him by the House in the original resolution
and it was now too late to complain of it.
Mr. LOVEJOY, (Ill.,) entered his protest against
the principles enunciated by the gentleman
from Kentucky, having always belived that the
military should be subordinate to the civil
power. The regular military officers are now
more in the way of an advance than any other
class. We are not true to the principles
of justice and truth and those of human
equality namely, liberty throughout all lands
to all the inhabitants thereof.
CLEVELAND, .lan. 6
A discussion ensued between Messrs. Lovejoy
and Wichliffe and others on the question of
Mr. DUNN thanked God that Lovejoy was not,
nor likely to be, a member of the Cabinet.
That's not so certain. [Laughter.]
Mr. STEVENS, (Pa.,) protested against the doc
trise ennunciated by Mr. Crittenden, as having
no foundation in the Constitution. He said, it
appears the border States would rather see the
Constitution and the Union perish than that
slavery should perish. We had just given
twenty thousand men to Kentucky to support
slavery. Should the alteration or the destruc
tion of the Union or of slavery be presented.
Mr. DUNN, resuming, said he would make no
sacrifice of the Constitution to preserve slavery,
but he did not believe this Government could
be perpetuated by declaring the emancipation
of slavery as its object.
Mr. BLAIR, (III?.,) moved that the whole sub
ject be laid on the table. Not agreed to—yeas
57, nays 77.
Mr. RICHABDSON offered an amendment to Mr.
Conkling's resolution, that the Secretary of
War also report to the House if not incompatible
with the public interests, who is responsible for
the defeat at Wilson's Creek, near Springfield,
and at Lexington ; disagreed to—yeas 49, nays
Mr. Conkling's resolution was then adopted—
yeas 79, nays 64.
Mr. WICKIJYR offered a resolution which was
Committee on the Ju
diciary to inquire nto the expediency of pro
viding by law for making final the decision of
the board of commissioners now engaged in de
ciding upon contracts growing out of operations
in the western military department.
Mr. SrEvstis asked and obtained leave to re
port a joint resolution explanatory of the re
cent act imposing duties on tea, coffee and su
gar. He said this was necessary owing to the
construction given to the act by the Secretary
of the Treasury. It relieves goods, warehoused
and in bond, before the passage of the act from
the additional tax.
