'Monday Morning, Mu: 9, 1801. From the K. T. Ktching Foe/. Can the Army Itnlion bo improved ! We have learned some things in the war; for instance, new uses for cavalry have been discovered, which were, if not unknown, yet little practised iu Europe; not only cavalry, but even infantry "raids-1 have been made by both sides, showing powers of inarching and endurance seldom found iu the armies of Eu rope. Hut whatever daring and determined generals have done with troops, they have done under the same conditions as regards arms and supplies, which have governed all modern ar mies. It does not appear to have occurred to any one in the Subsistence Department to in quire whether some radical change might not lie made, by which the burdens of the soldier should be so lightened, and his ration so con densed as to make his march easier, his sup plies surer in every emergency.and his cooking independent of the train, which lags behind and can scarcely ever lie at baud at the time whe.n it is most wanted. Professor E. N. Horsford, lately Kuuiford l’rofussor iu Harvard University, and there fore especially dovoted to "the application of science to the art of living,-’ has. at the re quest of army otiicers, investigated this ques tion of an improved army ratjon, and in an interesting pamphlet, published by Van Nos trand, shows that, with great saving to the country and increased comfort to the soldier, the present marching ration — which weight from tliirty-two to forty ounces, and occupies about one hundred cubic inches, may lie re duced in weight to thirteen or sixteen ounces, and in bulk to thirty-five cubic inches, without diminishing its nutritious value, by simply re moving the inedible portions and the water from it,and compressing it. The present army ration contains all that is essential to support life—so far it is arranged in accordance witli natural laws. It hassulii cient variety to satisfy the palate as well as the especial demands of the soldier's system. Thus, it has been noticed that when volunteers first enter the field they eat more beef than pork, but the old campaigner prefers pork. The French soldiers in tiie Crimea consumed in the proportion of one pound of salt beef to ten of sail pork. nut we present army ration is very bulky; and this is a grievous obstacle to movemen's of great armies In a region like Virginia where supplies caunot lie found, and where guerrillas hover upon the communications of an advancing army, to intercept supply trains. An army or au expedition must therefore carry the supplies along. Now, under the present system, men caunot march with more than eight days' rations in knapsacks ami liaver sack’, and eveu this supply of food is half wasted before the soldier has marched a day, through the impossibility of stowing it sing ly. Ii be leans against anything be crushes ills hard bread; if it rains, most likely his sugar, coffee, meat aud pulverized bread are found iu the shape of a disgusting dough in the haversack; which the poor leliow must eat or starve. So that eveu for his eight days’ march he is not comfortably or suffi ciently supplied ; anil all extended and rapid operations with a heavy force become almost impossible. Tbe present ration consists of bread, pork or beet,codec and sugar: wtighs thirty-two or forty ouuces, and occupies one hundred cubic inches in the pack. For this, Professor Horsford proposes 10 substitute a ration con sisting of fresh beef prepared in the form of sausage, properly seasoned, compressed so as to expel neat ly all tbe moisture, and of course without bone or other uneatable parts. Three ounces of beef prepared iu the way he de scribes, would make a full meat ration, lu aiead of hard bread.be proposes eight ouuces of roasted ground wheal, or eleven ounces of sell-raising dour, which he shows will be au adequate substitute for the present bread ra tion. Eight days’ rations at present weigh from sixteen to twenty pounds, aud occupy a bulk of over eight hundred cubic inches; the substitute of Professor Horsford would occu py but two hundred aud flfly cubic inches; and he asserts that, with the help of mules to carry additional supplies of sausaged beef aud roasted wheat, au army of one hundred thousand men might safely cut adriit trom its base for an operation requiring thirty or forty days. He would use a concentrated preparation of coffee, properly sweetened, which could be mixed as easily with cold as with warm water; aud he urges that government should luruish tobacco as a part of the ration. In this, every person who has served in the war, or who lias ever undergone hardship or exposure of any kiud, will agree with him. On the march or in the bivouac, a pipe is tbe promoter of cheerfulness; it adds to the endurance of the soldier, and fortides his body against malaria and disease. To make the improvement com plete, Professor Horsford proposes that each soldier shall be enabled to cook liis own ra tions, something which Napoleon declared to be necessary to efficiency. He does this by “ enclosing the regulation canteen in two closely-titling concave sheet-iron pans, held iu place by a fork aud spoon locked together, and which may lie detached at pleasure. The soldier is provided with a plate, liying-pan, bake pan, cup, fork, aud spoon—these take the place of similar articles now carted in a less convenient way—with which the soldier can prepare his lalion or cook anything he may get on the march.” \\ uat an immense miierence would oe made • in the transportation of the army by Mich a change iu the army ration as is above sug gested, may be seen from a few facts scatter ed through rroiessor Ilorsford's pamphlet.— A barrel that will coutain one hundred and ninety-six pounds of flour will hold hut seveu ly-llve pouuds of bard bread. An army wag on which will carry fifteen barrels of flour, will carry but oue-seveulli of this flour in the form of ireshly baked bit-ad. An ox weigh ing fifteen hundred |>ounds furnishes to the government which buys him. and slaughters him in the field, but about six aud a half per cent, of its weight in eatable meat! Accord ing to Colonel Katun, commissary at this port, the army ration of fresh beef at Hilton Head, costa the government thirty cents, at a time when excellent canned meats cost but sixteen cents delivered. Professor Horsfjrd suggests that instead of supplying salt beef and pork in their present shape, at least three i|uarters of the bulk being water—or fresh beef on the hoof, trans]>ortcd by rail from the western prairies at a great, loss—gjvermnent should kill the cattle in Illinois, iu their best condi tion, aud then, iu proper factories, prepare, aeason and condense the meat in the most perfect manner possible.
