There ex'sU no ground* whatever for the carrent aspersion* of some of the Northern papera upon Captain Urckwitb, the commissary of General Mainnield's command. The allegations are thai he has furnished unwind jKovislons In some cases to the troops, and Is not attentive to his business. Hh is really noted for remarkable industry, energy and attention to his duties at all hours of tLe dsy and night, being among the most mdefit i gable officers of the arm v.

It may pos.- blv bave happened that a barrel of pork or beef, after beinn delivered to a company or regimental qcrterraaster, and opened 6y him. has turned out to have been spoiled, perhaps by getting wet. but it is kn jwn to ail in the service that wL?a such a thing occurs, it is the duty ?f the receiver to return it instantly and receive another barrel in its stead. When spoiled food is fed to the men, tne fault is therefore wholly that of the regimental officer receiving and neglecting to return it. As a general thing, the provisions sent here for the troops are of the very first quality, having all keen in?pe;ted. barrel by barrti, by the proper Tegular army o!tt>en, where purchased.
