At that time General Cameron was still dclayed very much in his onward march by want of proper means of commissariat transport. It is a pity, as is generally acknowledged in this couutry, from what we havo seen of the service, that the Commissariat de partment is not better managed. It is alnost incredible to what extent igno rance and red tape in combination syste mnatically hanmper every momentnt at all de pendent on the Commissarat department -and what movement is there which is wholly independent of it? At all events, the General was able by very stong mea sures to work a revolution, and to mnake the transport service suffice for the need of thIe troops. During thIe last ten days previous to last Thursday, hlie was engaged in collect ing his provisions and baggage for an on ward move, at Whai...
