rations for tho ordered movoment of lB.OOO
troops from Chlckamnuga wero in progress at
. Camp Thomas to-day. Tho orders to niovo wore
, ' recolved with tho greatest enthusiasm In camp.
Cries of "Now we'll remember the Malnet" and
"Wo'll noon bo off for Cubal" rnng In the nlr,
and the boys scorned glnd to know that they
would soon bo on tho way to Cuba. The trans
portation Is all arranged over tho Hotithorn and
.Western and Atlantic railroads, and ilfty-two
trains are bolng made til) at different places and
Bill bo snitched onto tho Ilossvlllosldo tracks
as fast as tho regiments are ready to go. Ther
will march from the camp to tho placos where
thoy are to be loaded on the ran.
Of tho regiments which hare twen ordered to
more tho following are now fully equipped!
Eighth Massachusetts, Fourth Ohio, Twelfth
L New York. 163th Indiana, Thlrty-drat Mlchl-
an. Third and Fifth Illinois. The others are
being fitted out as fast as possible. Tho Ulglith
Massachusetts Is the best equipped of any
regiment In tho camp nnd la splendidly drilled.
Tho regiments will tnko thirty days' rations
with them, and the big bakory ovens are being
taxed to their utmost capacity In supplying the
extra nmount of bread needed. I.ong wagon
trains reaching from the Hrotherton House to
the commissary wnrobouses are awaiting their
trn to be loaded up with provisions. Intense
excitoment prernlls ntnong tho regiments In
cluded In the order. Those left behind are also
enthusiastic, for they know it will not be long
before thoy will receive orders to tuoro.
This morning the lirlgndlcr-Ooncrnls Inspected
the regiments under their command Included In
tho order to move, and It Is likely everything
will be In roadlness to go within throe days, but
there Is plenty of work to bo done yet. Three
r carloads of horses arrived this morning and
a will be issued to tho First Georgia Artillery
at once. Hot li corrals are full of mules and
I .horses, ami they nro being furnished to tho re-
1 orults as fast as thoy arrive. It Is reported that
I more reglmcnU will soon arrlvo to tnko tho
I place of those ordered away. Company M of
M the First Vermont was sent this nftcmoon to
f prepare for tho permanent establishment of a
f camp near (Sen. llrooke's headquarters for
twenty-live paymasters. Camp Thomas will
then be a pay station, and tho thousands of dol
lars coming to the soldiers hero will be paid
'out through this station.
This morning thirty-one recruits arrived for
Company I) of tho Fifth Pennsylvania and
forty-two for the Twelfth Now York. "We're
nil oil tho Iiowery!" one of the boys yelled as
, they passod from the train to the yark. Tho
'First Division court-martial to-day had before It
( aome thirty mon. chargod with various offences.
" 'The sentence of John I,utz, correspondent of the
W Lima Oaztlte, who Bcorcd Col. Kuert, has been
.published, and now ho is Bpendlng many weary
v 'hours In tho guardhouse. Ho was fined f 10 a

' Tho light artillery brlgsdo did some hard drlll-
'1ng to-day. One of the batteries was the Indian
apolis Light Artillery. It has been organized
"i 'seventeen j oars, nnd hnswon eighteon drill con-
' testa in different parts of tho country. The
i battery began winning first prizes at New Or
leans In 1&B5, when it defeated the Louisiana
1'ield Artillery of New Orleans and the VTash-
' lngton (I). C) artlllory. These last two had be-
' fore this timo been winning all the first prizes.
" They were rather taken btck by a defeat from
tho Hoosier battalion. Tho last Important con
test of this battery was at St. Louis, where the
team won the biggest prlr.o evor won by such an
'organization, $2,000. It has hold the interstate
.championship longer than any other battery. In
' all these contests the judgos were officers from
f The battery, like all others, has Its guidon
with It, but tho one guidon that it lavs store by
.was left at home. The battery's numerous
medals wcro also left at home. Hut there Is one
memento It did not leave at homo. That Is the
beautiful silk United Statos flng presontod to
It by the ladles of Indianapolis, It is not
the custom for battories to carry flags, but thi
.battery could do nothing elso than bring this
'one with it. Tho flag was formally pre
'cented to tho battery by ex-l'resldent Harrison
.in a spoccli that was telegraphed all over the
country, because It was tho first time ho bad
given any public utterance to bis sentiments
regarding the war. Each otllcer of tho battary
was presented by the citizens of Indianapolis
with n Babro. on both the blade and scabbard of
p -'-, .. which is thonime of thoofllcer. A committee
of Dvo, hoaded by Hugh JlcVey, was beat to tho
i Park to present them.
' The poreonnol of tho battery is of the highest
'order. Tho privates aro professional and busi
ness men, thero being lawyers, doctors, mer
'chants, dentists, civil engineers, capitalists, and
one preacher among them. All of tho ofllcera
entered tho battery as privates, nnd have passed
through all tho grades up to their present
places, being promoted solely on their merits.
'The battery has four guns and four caissons.
It will receive two more guns and five more
caissons. It Is tho only battery that has six
borscs to each gun.

for use in the army and navy during the pres

Up to tho presont writing the export of

flen. William Hcaly returned to-day from a
firing trip to Now York, where ho had tho pay
rolls of the Eighth, Ninth and Thirteenth regi
ments corroded. He nrrlvod at the camp of the
Kl&hth and immediately began to ray off the
men. The news that the General was In camp
quickly spread among th troops, who
expressed their approbation by a series of war
whoops. Gen. Heal? made quick work of giving
Col. Chauncoy's men their long delayed and
much needed money, und before night had also
paid tho men of the Ninth and Fourteenth.
The aggrcgato amount paid out to the New
York troops to-day was?lo,000, about $10,000
for each regiment. Profiting by the experience
of tho ofilccrs of the Tu olftti with tholr hilarious
soldiers last week, tho commanders of the regi
ments that wore paid to-day warned the men
that the expression of their Jubilation over the
receipt of their money must bo within proper
bounds. Offenders will be severely dealt with.
It is reported that Major-Clcn. Wilson nnd
Oen. Poland will command the two divisions
that will leave here In a few days for Cuba. It
cannot bo learned definitely Just who will com
mand the expeditionary force, but the impres
sion is general that Gen. Wilson will go to the
front at once. The distinguished veteran has
done magnificent work at Camp Thomas In as
sisting Gen. Itrooke In making ronl soldiers out
of tho volunteers, nnd Is recognized ns one of
the most efficient ofllcersln the service. Gen.
Wilson Is enjoying splendid health and looks as
though he could stand tho rigors of a hard
campaign as well now ns when he lead
tho famous "Wilson Cavalry" in tho days
of tho rebolllon. Gen. Wilson has been
designated to the command of the Sixth
Corps, bolng in the meantime provisionally In
command of the First Division of the First
Corps. It will be soino time boforo tne Sixth
Corps is organized, and it is not believed that
such an otllcer as Gen. Wilson will bo held In
camp Indefinitely while oxpcrlenced command
ers are needed at tho front.
Inspection of tho Twelfth New York continued
to-day. The men were supplied with nbout 100
new guns, leggings, clothing and other equip
ment. Hy to-morrow night tho Twolfth will be
fully equipped for service. Gen. Grant to-day
examined the reports of the Inspection of this
division and ordered requisitions made out for
guns, tentage, and other things needed. The
members of the Fourteenth are keenly disap
pointed that tbelr regiment was not Included
among those ordered to the front.

A chance is to be given to some of the ofllcera
of the three regiments and ten separate com

with similar rank in the threo new regiments.
The following telegram was sent to-day by

Jacksonville, Fla,, June U7. Two carload
of rifles and ammunition for the Seventh Corps
ordnance officer arrived hero to-day. They are
of the Improved Springfield pattern, and are In
prime condition, Thoy are sufficient to equip
tho Socond Virginia and all tho other rcglmonla
of the Socond Division, Tho ordnance officers
of several of the regiments today recelvod or
dors to ship baok to tho Bock Island Arsenal all
tholr condemned weapons. This news pleased
them Immensely, ns it was the first sign, as one
Colonel said, "that they had tbat tbe depart
ment at Washington knew of any troops being
ttntloned at Jacksonville."
Tho Second Illinois ordnance officer made a
requisition to-day for 10,000 rounds of blank
cartridges. That regiment will tako up skir
mish drill nt once. The Second New Jersey had
a hard drill this morning, being a reglmontal
battle formation drill. They founed their lines
to attack n supposed fort, advanced skirmish
ers with supports aod retorves, picked their way
through tho palmettos and ditches, and at last,
with a grand rush under cover of tbelr rapid
flro, chargod forward with filed bayonets and
captured tho " Spanish fort."
The msvemont waa repeated much to the edi
fication of the officers, though doubtless not to
tho men. Capt. Ruthers, U. S, A., on Gen.
Burt's staff, was In charge of the movements,
with Col. Pines in command of the regiment.
Inspector-General Col. Curtis Guild of Lee's
staff witnessed the bnttlo and commended the
Jcrssy boys quite highly for their good work.
Only two men fell out, though the day was very
hot, hardly a broath of air stirring. Tbo two
men were all right by noon. In the afternoon a
good breeze sprang up and tbe rest of tbo day
was cool nnd pleasant.
The flrat indication of any early move was
made to-day at Gen. Leo's headquarters, nnd the
staff Is qulto jolly over It. A big division
mess "kit," to cost $100, has been ordered, and
will be here the last of the week. Gen. Leo and
staff will oamp " In tho saddle." so to speak,
hereafter. A fine, shady spot has been selected
in Springfield, near the camps and on tbo car
line, which will bocorp" headquarters. A gang
of men will begin work In the morning clear
ing It out. It Is In a fine grove of big oaks, tir
ing ample shado and plonty of fresh air. Two
bouses near by will be used for offices. The
stnff wants to get a Uttlo experience In camping
out beforo going to Cuba.
The division field hospital was moved to-day
from back of the Forty-ninth Iowa to a beauti
ful pine grove In the rear of Gen. Burt's brigade
headquarters. This change Is beneficial in
many ways. It places the hospital nearer tho
centre of the camp sites and closer to the regi
ment, so that Bick men will not ha e to be car
ried so far.

Newt ot Clara Barton's arrival In Cuba, which
has been expected for several days, and for
which the work ot relief here has been watting,
was received yesterday afternoon. Miss Bar
ton's dospatch came through the Stnto Depart
ment at Washington by tho Government tele
graph lino. It was short, and announced her
arrival ut Gnantnnamo, where some of the
party had landed and tents bad already
been erected. Sho statod that assistance
was badly needod, and asked that tents,
lanterns, pajamas, and all other supplies
ordered recently bo sent forward without delay.
She did not mention the subject ot nurses. A
number ot nurses bavo been held In readiness at
tho Rod Cross Hospital hero, ns It was expected
that Miss Barton would indlcato In her first
message ho w many should be sent. As no refer
ence was mado to them Stephen K. Barton, who
Is in charge of the Itod Cross headquartors horo,
cabled ber at once, asking If any nurses were
needod, and if so, bow many. Nothing furthor
will be done In regard to the matter until a reply
Is received. A large sum hat been subscribed
for tho support of nurses and at least twenty
live could start at a moment's notice.
The supplies that Miss Barton asked for In
her despatoh will bo sent Immediately, the first
lot going on the Belief Committee's boat Red

yesterday", most ot them being medicinal
articles. One load of boxes of shoets and
clothing was from the supply depot at
6S2 Broartwny. Supplies such as tho am
bulances, stretchers, and some of tho cots, which
would occupy too much space to be carried on
tho Red Cross, will go on a Govornmont trans
port. Negotiations to this end havo been going
on for some timo, and yesterday the Government
notified Mr. Barton tbat all the remaining Red
CrosB supplies and all the supplies collected by
tho Central Cuban Relief Committee would be
taken on a traniport somo time this weok. Tney

taken from there to Cuba by the Red Cross boats
as they are nocded.
Tho Red Croat authorities here received yes
terday n full report from the San Francisco
branch of all the relief work done In connec
tion with the expeditions for Manila. The San
Francisco branch has been In constant com
munication with headquarters here slnoe the
expedition was planned, but tho work has
grown to such proportions that those in charge
have requested that some person with pre
vious experience be tent to counsel with
them. It has beon arranged that Judge
Joseph Sheldon of New Haven, a mombsr
of tho National Bed Cross for many years
and a delegate several times to the inter
national conferences, shall start within r. week
for San Francisco. Judge Sheldon has beon in
structed to report as soon as possible upon the
advisability ot sending a Bed Cross relief ship
to the Philippines. This hns been under con
sideration for some time, but nothing definite
will be decided upon beforo Judge Sheldon's

"These questions can only affect us nsa na

would soon nrrango tbelr tariffs to pre

development of commerce on tho Pacific Ocean
us a future market for our productions. If we
aro to take a part In the commercial doelop
inentof the l'aclllo Ocean, vo must havo naval
stations and hurbors of refuge, where wo can
coal and repair our ships or take rare of n largo
naval force to protect our merchant ships. We
must follow tbe sumo lines that other commer
cial nations have found it to their udvantngo to
pursue If we aro to tnki) any part In tho inter
national commerce of tho world; and It wo nro
going tohavo a merchant marine wo must havo
a navy to protect It and command the rospect of
other nations. Tho retention of the Philippines
would be itmcntial to tho inulntenuuco of our

We have men In Cougreas who, from pcMounl,
