today. 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.
