General Miles, commander in chief of the United States army, Is not d West Pointer. He was a olerk when Sumter was fired on, and he volunteered for service in a Massachusetts regiment. He was a gallant offloer during the dvll war, and he has had a great deal of experience fighting Indians. As was announced in the morning papers Gen. Miles, the commander of the United States Army, is to command the iorces which will invade Cuba in a few days. It is a source of muMi satisfaction to that this great responsibility is to rest upon the shoulders of this old chieftain in whose skill and capability America has so much confidence. The time for the armv to show its mettle has now arrived, and we trust we shall hear of as many heroes in this body as have shown themselves in our navy since, the war began.

General Miller, recently promoted, has been as signed to command a brigade in the Philippine expedition. Charles King, the famous story writer, may com maim a brigade. Capt. King is somewhat broken down in health as the result of wounds received in former battles, but his splendid intellect will make up for any physical disability and it is very litlinz that the man who has idealized the life of the United States army officer in the way this famous officer has done should bo given some share of the at tention that is being bestowed upon his comrades at this time.

From Chickamauga CliiCAMAf.iA, (la., May 20, 180S. I suppose the people of Barre are all anxious to hear through the Tr.l.E.iii.v.M how Company E boys are setting along. We are all well now, but at first there were a few prostrations by heat. Wo had a delightful trip South and stopped at a number of the large cities including Washington. 1 saw the Cap itol and the other government buildings. We have a nice grove to camp in, but the ground is very stony and the water is simply n. g. But we hope to strike some better. We drill two hours early in the morning and rest the remainder of tho day. It is almost DO in the shade during tho day but quite cool nights. We ate encamped on tho old historic battleliield of Chiekauiauga' made fa mous by tho invincible Thomas, around whom the Confederates surged, but lie held his ground as linn as a rock. Some of the boys have found bullets ami pieces of bayonets on Ihe ground. 1 will try and get hold of one. Some of the boys' lent floors are on tho solid rock, so you see it is not quite so soft as a feather bed. We have plenty of hard tack and black strap. The water we have to drink is so poor, Company I and ourselves sunk a well in order that the water we drink might be pure. This well is for our own use and to prevent any other com pany using the water and to guard against persons polluting the water, we placed four guards on duly. Since this well has been sunk three persons have been shot in trying to force their way by the guards. The last one was shot a couple days ago and it is said lie had poison on his pert on. Lieutenant (icorge Tilclen has been sick but has recovered. CUOCEUS WON.
