The Entire First DMnlon to Movo to a New

Cami- Aixier, Vn.. July 18. Tho Now York
cavalry troops aro to move, not to Torto Woo or
to Santlngo. but to a slto nearly threo miles
west of their present quarters, nnd one-half a

Tho threo troops of Pennsylvania cavalry aro to
bo consolidated with tho New Yorkors. nnd tho
ontlro squadron Is to be encamped on tho Crit
tenden farm, where tho Eighth Pennsylvania
is now, and where, within tho noxt ton days,
the entire First Division will bo quartered. It
orders for movement south aro not Issued in
tho meanwhile.
Tho chanco Is mado not becauso the present
camp is not healthy, but because tho officers
aro of thooptnlon that tho crowded quarters of
tho troops simply Invites sickness, ncd thnt, as
more room Is necessary, it Is bettor to removo
an entire division to a point whero a healthful
water supply Is abundant, near tho railroad,
nnd whero tho men will have rlenty of spaco
for camping purposes and a largo unobstructed
drill Held. The troops will movo to-morrow.
Tho Engtnoor Corps has laid off tho camp slto,
and the men not only welcomo tho change, of
camp, but tho exorcise nnd experience thoy
will get from It. Gen, Plumo. commanding the
First Brlgado of the First Division, comprising
tho First Now Jersey. Sixty-fifth New York and
Seventh Ohio, was notified to-day by Gen.
Butler, commanding the division, that his
brlgado would bo moved to Dunn Lorlng the
latter part of this week or the earlier part of

typhoid fever. There havo been fifty-two cases
reported slnco tho camp was organized on May
20. and seven of these cases have proved fatal.
Col. 01 nml estimates that this is one caso a
day, and that means only 305 cases a year In a
camp whero there aro 22,000 soldiers. Typhoid
fever Ib a common dlseaso among soldiers In

trict of Teniiesseo how to shoot a revolver.
The Lieutenant took great pnlns to toll tho
recruit how to handle tho weapon. Illustrating
with much elaboration how the fingers should
bo placed nnd tho pistol aimed. Tho man
seemed very clumsy, but very willing to learn.
Ho llstoncd to tho Lieutenant's Instructions
with corn nnd then aimed tho pistol, with tho
half doubtful remark. "Is this correct?" Bang I
Bangl Bangl Bangl Bang! went tho revol
ver llvotimos, and tho bullets bumped against
each other right in tho centre of tho bullseye,
100 yards distant. The recruit grlnnod nsho

Ab for tho Lleutonnnt. ho decided that Tennes
see monshlners did not need much Instruction
In pistol pructleo.

Tho Massachusetts and Roumanian will tako

Porto Rico,
This part of the expedition was Insisted upon

would bo of no moro uso to him than It was to
Gen. Shaffer without tho means to disembark
It. At the place selected for tho landing there
are no piers whero nn invading nrmy may land
expeditiously. Therefore ho Insisted upon

B. Brown of 87 Chestnut street. East Orango,
has roceiv cd a letter from his grandson. Priv ato
Clifford W. Brown of Company E, Soventv-flrst
Regiment. Young Brown was a football player
with tho Orango Athletic Club, nn oarsman of
the Triton Boat Club, and an all-around ath
lete. His letter was written in tho intreneh-
menta on the firing line near San Juan during
a period of truco on JuIyO. Telling of tho fight
on Friday, July 1, ho says:
" Wo passed the First and Soeond battalions
and wero first behind tho regulars when wo
charged tho hill at Son Juan. Wo passed
Bloody Creek and marchod in good order up
tho hill to tho crest, but were not then allowed
to flro on account of tho smoko from our
Springfield guns. Wo had little protection.
Bullets whistled over our heads anil shells
broko all around us. Tho charge up tho hill
was a desperate one. The Spaniards had
barbed wire fenco all around, but they ran
when our men camo across tho field and up tho
That night the regiment slept on tho hill, and
the noxt morning Brown was sent out on
picket duty. Half an hour later firing com
menced. The pickets stayed at their posts un
til their regiment was ordered to flro. Then
they wont back.
"When I reached our trenches," says Brown,
"I had to call ' cease firing,' or I would have
been shot by my own regiment. All thought,
as I was out so long, that I had been shot."
Patrolman John Ward of Brooklyn has re
ceived a letter from his cousin. Sergeant John
Strain, who is a member of Company A, Ninth
Infantry. Tho lettor is dated San Juan Ridge,

"Dr.An Cousin: Wo arc resting under a flag
of truce after n hard-fought battle of threo
days. We took everything before us and all
are well. We mado a chargo on this rldgo. and
all tho officers say that It was tho most daring
ohargo that has over been known in history.
We hod considerable men and officers killed
and wounded, but nothing to compare with the
loss on tho Spaniards' side. We lost a great
many men after wo orossed the enemy's firing '
line. They hnd sharpshooters In tho trees and
they fired at us ns we passed undor them. Our
officers are a credit to their country. Thoy
seem to havo no foar. I never thought I could
sco such courage under such n flro as wo woro
In. When wo wero charging tho hill I could
not describe It In better words thnn to say that
It seemed to mo like a shower of hall: the bul
lets wero coming so thick that I wondor how
I ever escaped with my life."

ho would bo In Now York, but ho is a soldier
from the ground up, as dobonalr as any of his
clubmatos whom ho left behind, and as cool
and unconcerned whon bullets aro flying as It
ho were playing a set of tennis.
" Ho was In chargo of tho detail manning the
Colt guns at Las Guaslmas, nnd was ordered to
held his men In the rear, ready to como up It
they could bo used. After I was woundod I
went to tho renr, and tho first man I met was
Tiffany. When ho saw me he exclaimed:
"Ah. Major! Finked a bit I" Then, seeing
that my arm was a bit smashed, he added :
"Why, Major, they hit you hard! Awfully
sorry, don't you know, but just lot me do you
