ward, each by the party whose own claims it told against, to induce consent to the treaty. On the whole, the charge of bad faith had better be abandoned, — certainly, by our kind cousins across the water.
In answer to a letter of inquiry, Dr. S. G. Howe has written a pamphlet of great interest, touching the work of the Sanitary Commission. He takes occasion to present the statistics of disease and death in our armies, in a very striking light; he insists on the harm of sending extra supplies of any sort to the soldiers in the field; he urges that even for military hospitals charitable gifts are no longer needed, and had better be discontinued, while money is required for the operations of the Commission; and he argues, with great warmth and force, that the watchword of Emancipation is needed, both to make the war a short one, and to animate it with a noble and inspiring motive. The writer's character and position will secure a wide hearing to his words.
