Adjutant General Thomas

The character of the man, who issued his shameless report with such indecent haste against Fremont, on his return from the West, is fast coming to light. – The investigation of the Potter Committee into the character of the office holders at Washington, shows that this Gen. Thomas is a partner in the house of Boyce, Thomas & Dodge, that both Boyce and Dodge are notorious secessionist, that Dodge is a Paymaster, and that his clerk, McCobb, is an open and avowed secessionist.
