Secretary Alger said tins after-1 noon tlmt r laid sent word to General Shatter to keep linn advised of the move-! nients of the troops. From this it is certain that tbe cable is still o|ien, but Secretary Algerbelieves that as General Shafter has not answered his dispatches, the troops have not yet been landed. Tlieie is a great anxiety at tlie War Department for news from the army, and especially to learn that the army The fact that tile soldiers have liecn on the transports for over a week, ttnd that the weather is • excessively hot, makes the Department, anxious tlmt the troops should at least be put on shore where they can get fresh air, for at night the transports have to be darkened and all the hatches and windows closed to keep in the light. As soon ns General Shatter and Admiral Sampson decide upon a landing place the Witr Department^will be notified and the movements oil land reported at once to the Department. The reinforcements for General Shafter ordered from Camp Alger have already started to Hampton Hoads. General Duffield's brigade whs the one selected to move first, atid it left Camp Alger this morning for Alextnlria, where the sol diers will take tbe boat for Hampton Hoads and be put upon tbe Harvard, General Garretson's brigade will leave before the end of the week by the same route, and in all probability tfiov will, as stated, sail on tbe Vale. General Guy V. Henry lias been assigned to the com ntand of tbe brigade ordered to Santiago to reinforce General Shafter. General Duflield and General Garn-tson will command the division, (jt-neral Henry will probably sail with tin- last expedt tion.'
