The Quartermaster General.

The Richmond Whig remarks that whatever may have been the merits of he controversy in regard to Col. Myers, the recent Quartermaster General we think there can be no doubt that his successor has shown himself eminently qualified for the position. There is perhaps no position in the country involving more responsibility, requiring greater energy, more sleepless vigilance, or a clearer intelligence. The absence of either of these qualities would produce confusion in the service, and rouse immediate and emphatic complaint. Yet we are confident that there never was a time when our armies, so far as this Department is concerned, were better supplied, and when there was more satisfaction with its workings exhibited by the press and the public. We cannot but attribute these results to the efforts of the head of the Department; and we see no good reason why he should not get the cared it for them which he deserves.
