Heroism of Our Wounded Ilastnrdly Work of the Spaniards In Firing on Them. WAsniNOTON. July 25. Mr. John Addison Porter. Secretary to tho President, has received a lettsr from his wife, who Is with tho Bed Cross In Cuba, written after the battles at San tiago and El Caney. Everybody was then busy caring for the sick and wounded. The Ameri can dead had been buried, but tho trenchoa were full of dead Spaniards, whoso bodies floated on top of tho water mado by tho rnins and filled tho air with n Blckenlng odor. Mrs. Porter tells of tho heroism of the wounded. Ono boslsh soldier who was dying said: "I would willingly go through It nil again for my country." She says that all tho woundod soldiers wero enthusiastic in their praise of Col. Boosevelt and Brig.-Gon. Wood. "Thoy aro not stuck up." said ono badly woundod boy In bluo. "and speak to the men whorovcr thoy see us." Mrs. Porter says all the whlto soldiers speak highly of the courage of the colored soldiers, who fought bravoly on overv field. Tho sol diers, she sas. criticise the Cubans for allow ing the bushwhacking by tho Spaniards. The soldiers think that as the Cubans know tho Spanish method of fighting they should havu protected tho American troops. From her own knowledge Mrs. Porter confirms tho stories of Spanise barbarity In firing on the wounded, and says that In soveral Instanocs wounded men wore shot dead as thoy lay in Bed Cross litters on their way to hospitals. This das tardly work went on so unceasingly that the surgeons performod operations by moon light. Thoy were afraid to light cnndles or lan terns, da Spanish sharpshooters would have picked them off. A number of theso guerrillas, or sharpshooters, wero picked out of trees by American sharpshooters, nlthough this was dif ficult, because tho Spaniards used smokeless powder. Commissions for their dastardly work wero found on tho bodies of some of these guerrillas, indicating Dint high Spnnish odlclals sanctioned the barbarities committed. Mrs. Porter gives n detailed account of tho work of tho Bed Cross, which was provided with numberless dolicnclos for tho sick and wounded. Tho soldiers wero grutcful for this kindness. Woundod Spanish soldiers who had been captured received the samo ntteutlon ns tho Americans, nnd they showed much grati tude. Ono surgeon who dressod the wounds of 200 American nnd Spanish soldiers told Mrs. Porter that nearly all the Spaniards wero hit two and throo times, while, as a rule, the Amor loans received nslngle wound, going to show tho bettor marksmanship of the Americans.

Here tofore doctors from civil llfo have been asslgnod to transports to which wounded and sick wero consigned Tho new order of tho Surgeon General relieves them of further duty.

Only about 25 per cent of tho amount contracted for has been taken by the Government. The full amount required under the terms of the contract Is on hand and tho Government has been repeatedly notified of this fact, although It has not signified its inten tion to take it Indeed, the Gambrlll Manu facturing Company has learned that the Gov ernment does not intend to tako any more of tho flour. No explanation of the Government's action has beon offored. Flour is more than $2 a barrel cheaper now than it was when the con tract was placed. Wheat was selling above SI a bushel thon, and if the Gambrlll Manufactur ing Company had bought wheat at the ruling price at that time the company would have sus tained heavy loss. Tho Gambrlll Manufac turing Company furnished the navy with C.000 barrels before the army order was placed, and the flour was pronounced to bo up to the requirements. A BPREB OX WOOD ALCOHOL.

Tho sanltniy force is urged to increased vigilance, and It Is tho determination to koep the elty clonn and healthy.

Typhoid Fever Claiming Mora Victims Every Dny-Hospltals Rapidly Filling Up. Camp Atinn, Va., July 25. Tho camp is not to be movod. This dotormlnatlon has beon roochod by the officials of the War Department and communicated to tho corps officers. Surgeon-Gen. Sternberg has mado no recommen dation for moving tho camp, even under the conditions that now exist. Theso conditions aro Insufficient wator supply, crowdod quarters for the troops, typhoid fovor claiming moro victims every day, and a great amount of haul ing necessary to convey the subsistence and quartermaster's stores from the railroad sta tion at Dunn Lorlng, which In nearly throe miles from the nearest regimont Major-Gen. Butler has succeodod In scour ing for his command more space. Tho Critten den farm, within a half mllo ot Dunn Lorlng, has been leasod, nnd tour regiments of his di vision are now encamped thero. By tho end ot thowoektho entire First Division will havo changed 1U quartors. Tho only advantage ot tho now slto Is that there is plenty ot room. The troops thero will not bo safo from malaria and fevor, which Is rapidly filling tho division hospital and tho post hospital ot Fort Myer with patients. Sixteen men were to-day added to the number of fovor patlonts in the post hospital. Everything for their comfort is bo lng done, and nothing In tho modtcal lino Is lacking. Trained women nurses are constantly in attondanco and carefully watch tholr charges. Fort Myor boforo tho war wos a cavalry post, but now allot the bar raoks and houses have boon turned Into hos pitals, every building being taxed to its limit A grave quostlon will soon have to be settled. If the number of sick continues to Increase, and that Is, What shall be dono with them r To day a new system ot convoying the stricken men to Fort Myer wns put In operation. A closed car on the Falls Church eleotrlo line is fitted with cots and tho men aro taken to the village, placed on the car and carried to the gato of the fort. This saves the men n long, weary ride of seven miles in an ambulanoe. The Medical Board for tho First Division, to pass upon the condition of mon making appli cations for discharges on tho ground of physi cal disability, has been dissolved and a new one appointed. The detail for the new board comprises Major Henry Alters, surgeon. First New York; Major Martin L. Foucht, surgeon. Twelfth Pennsylvania, and Major William O. Smith, surgeon. Third Virginia. The battalion of Ninth Ohio colored troops has beon detailed as a guard for headquarters. The Ohloaris movod tholr oamp to a alts on the right of the one occupied by the New York Cavalry, and will In the future act as an emergency guard to quell disturbances or to stop the Sixth Pennsylvania men, if they at tempt to break camp. While waiting to so to the front sevoral men of tho Fourth Missouri of a literary Inclination have turned their spare time and attention to the publishing ot the Camp Alger Bulletin. It Is a conservative paper. And has for Us motto, " It you see it in the Bulletin put it down and think." Privates H. J. Wnttcrson and II. Harrison, both of Company F, Third Virginia, are under arrest for sleeping on guard. They agreed that one should sleep while the other watched, and wero found by tho Corporal asleep, both having taken tho first turn at sleeping, Washington, July 25. Tho statement sent by tho War Department to Camp Alger to-day, baying that there was to bo no change In the location of tho camp and that no troops would bo taken away oxcept those destined for Porto Bioo or other points for active service, does not necessarily mean that healthier sites than Camp Algor will not be used for the mobiliza tion of troops. The Quartormoster-Goneral has been making an Investigation ot a plan to have tho volunteers stationed at polnta In New York. Now Jersey and Maryland, instead ot in tho neighborhood of Falls Church, and It is probable that he has decided upon some site or sites which promise to meet the vlows of Surgeon-General Sternberg, who has not been 6at- -Jsfled with the situation at Camp Alger. That such is the case would seem to reoelvo confirmation from tho action of the Adjutant General to-day in directing the Connecticut volunteers at the camp In Niantlo to prepare to move out of the State. Tho organisations at Niantlo aro the Third Beglment ot Connecticut militia, now the Second Beglment of Volun toors mustered In from State; one light bat tery, and a battery of heavy artillery. They are to move in about ten days to eome camp, the namo ot which the dopnrtment declines to mnko public. It Is known, however, that tho destination of tho troops is not Camp Alger, and It is not believed to be Camp Thomas. Tho assurance is given to tho Connecticut officers that it will bo "a pleasantand healthful camp," and that tho men will bo well satisfied with tho change From the experience the department has had with the First Beglmont It 1b fully understood that tho mon of the Third would not bo content with an assignment to any duty at tho fortifica tions in Now England, and the reserve mani fested by tho Washington" authorities in speak ing of tho promised movement would seem to Indicate that the destination of the throo com mands at Niantlo is an entirely now camping ground.

Sentry at IVUleU Point He id TJp an Office Who Was Mot In Uniform. Discipline at Wtllots Point is very stringent nowadays, as secret work is in progress on the fortifications. Two englneor corps oflloers and a member of Congress ran against It yesterday in the porson of a sontry of the Twenty-seoon d . Beglment and a Corporal of tho guard ot the Rome regiment and their pationce was constd i erably exerotsod beforo thoy got through tha lines. The officers were Col. nonry M.

In charge of tho mines of this harbor, and with them was Congressman Charlos E. Penroo of Missouri. They had como down to seo Major Knight of the Engineer Corps at Wllleta Point and had landed about an hour too late to seo the mine explosions. I A peculiarity ot the post Is that visitors art ,' pormlttod to land at tho dock but mny not pro- cecd past a sign, about Ufty feet from the wharf. Neither of tho ofllcors was In uniform, but as t Col. Boberts has frequently reviewed the troops f there, and as Major Adams's men aro now .; working on the harbor Improvements there. i they had no doubt about bolng admitted, but It happened that the Twenty-second men, instead of the Engineer Corps, wero on post whloh j complicated matters. The sentry nt Post No. 0, j where thoy attempted an entrance, hold them Ml up and civilly explained that as they were not ' jn uniform ho could not let them pass.' He was told to call the Corporal of tho guard, but remarked that tho relief would he around i in a minute, anyway. Major Adams then told J him sharply to call the Corporal at onco. To '. do him justice, that sentry emulated a mega- 1 phone for soveral minutes without eliciting any response. He got purplo In the faco from J his efforts, and presently explained that the fi posts wero too far apart and tho sentries f "3 couldn't eommuntcato. Meantime, tho Major ,R was getting Impationt Ho spoke to Congress- Jj man Peurco, who produced a pass from Secro- "t tury Alger, nnd that let the Congressman In. I Then a foreman Identified Major Adams and , i the sentry let him pass: but Col. Boberts said J that he would wait for tho Corporal. It was ten minutes before tho Corporal camo. and when 1 he did he recognized one of tho newspaper men waiting there and spoke to him. Tho nowsim- j per man called his attention to Col. Boberts. 5 who stated who ho was, but tho Corporal Inter- rupted him to ask a newspaper man soma I question about home. Col. Boberts called him J sharply to account for want of respect to hs bu- perlor officer nnd in a way that admitted ot no dispute laid down a few rules of con duct and military etiquette, the Corporal meantlmo trying to excuse himself. He de clined to lot tho Colonel through, and In this the Colonel commended him as Being perfectly right to obey strictly his orders, but insisted on I &is caning me omcer oi tne any, wnion tno ' orporal seemed for some reason unwilling to do. j After five minutes of this tho ofjlcor of the day, Copt. Turpln of the Twenty-second Begl mont appeared, having received the cards ot i the newspaper men, and Col. Boberts explained matters to him. The Captain very courteously l explained that the orders were strict and that , ho did not know the visitor. Col. Boberts '; ldontifled himself by letters. Capt. Turpln personally conducted him through the lines, J and tho Incldont wan closed. ft That gloom which has for soveral woeks darkened the faces of tho Twenty-second Begl- h ment boys gave wny to grins of exultation yes- S terday nt tho prospect of hard cash.
