In the meantime prisoner and his Comrade who had so opportunely rescued him from an ignominious death hurried from the scene and springing from tho grave Yard.

A Thero they found a boat in which Dick Martin had crossed alone from tho Jersey Shore six hours before to save Iris Comrade re Chile in Soner earn est we were vexed and disappointed. And a further knowledge of our Riding Stock has increased our vexation and disappointment. Between Twenty and thirty horse s have died on the Way and since our arrival and of the remainder More than four Hundred have been rejected by the inspector besides quite n Large number Are under tho care of the Farmer.

Should with some of the Best of them. By whose neglect or fraud or fraudulent Connivance does it happen that we Are not so furnished ? there is More Tymn one party to hear the blame but nevertheless it should fall distinctly and fully upon every intermediate agent Between the government and the original these of course sold to tho contractors such horses As they could sell at such prices As they could got. The contractors with Wiliom the first blame rests in order to enl in inc their profits and perhaps relying on the Connivance of , bought cheap horses without regard to fitness scarcely deeming it Nec essay to make such selections As would leave Evon a plausible excuse to tho Insp Etor for passing them. The inspector surely has not relied upon any excuses whatever but has either through ignorance or neglect of duty in his Caso being equally culpable a passed wholesale Good bad and it different rag tag and Bobtail everything in the shape of a horse that was his if to rejected any heaven Only knows what newly discovered and hitherto unheard of faults defects or infirm Aries he found in them to Render them less eligible than some of these which he approved As sound and serviceable. It is unfortunate that the Field offi cers of the regiment Wero not allowed to in Speet and make so lotions As i believe was originally intended. The inspector whoever to was was appointed by capt. Wilson quartermaster in. A a the lean and craggy condition of Ovon the Best of the horses when they first came into our hands fully establishes tho fact that the person or persons who had the contract for subsisting them wilfully neglected their duty and deliberately swindled the government. Let Thorn Bear their share of the by nine and their share is not a Little Trio Man who for the Sake of gain or Tao Tuatoo by any other selfish motive or without any motive whatever will knowingly allow a brute to suffer when it is in Iris Power to Faro for him is Only restrained by fear of the Law from manifesting tho same criminal disregard for the rights of his Fel Lowman. A. But after All the neglect and dishonesty of contractors Nind inspectors and sub contractors and sub inspectors Yvo might and should have had a hotter lot of horses. Capt Hastings commanding Carlisle Barracks and an experienced Dragoon officer was ordered by tho War department to furnish our complement. He had nbout2,50l Tose Leot from. He was or ought to Havo been fully competent to make tho Solee Tion Iio knew or ought to have known that by furnishing is Hap Haz Ard just As they came to was entailing unnecessary expense on tho government for transportation and he was hindering the efficiency and usefulness of tho regiment. And to knew very Well or should have know i that it would have Boon Best in Evory was most prudent and economical to Send us away with serviceable horses Only even if but five Hundred such could to found among tho Twenty five Hundred. Tho plea of ignorance on i Quot part or �1 inability to make a bettor selection would be a virtual acknowledgement of his unfitness for the position which he occupies and Negl Geneo or inattention to tho discharge of the duty assigned him would be almost if not quite equivalent to trim inn Connivance.
