WASHINGTON, Oct. 1.—General Mi took up the cause of the army in an address at a reception given him by the medal of honor legion. His remarks are regarded as a direct reply to Secretary Alger's statements that the sickness in camps was largely due to the carelessness of the men. It has created a profound sensation ind i certain to intensify the bittcrnes: existing between the secretary of wai and the commanding general of the army. "The men who fought, bled 01 died of disease were heroes, every one of them," General Miles said. "And yet," lie continued, "the peril which our soldiers had most cause to dread wns not bullets, but disease, which swept over our camps, destroying hundreds where bullets had killed one. Those who say that these men sickened and died because they wished to; those who blame (he soldiers and officers of our army for the disease and denth that devastated the camps and thinned the ranks of our army; those who assert that our soldiers suffered through their own fault insult a quarter of a million of the bravest men that ever earned arms beneath the sun. These men did not suffer and die because they liked it, and whoever says they did insults our army and the men who officered it. It is an affront to reason. I have nothing to say of the blame for the death of those brave men." QUEEN LOUISE DlES>i DEATH OF HON. T. F. BAYARD. Eminent Democratic Statesman PUSHCR Away. DURHAM, Mass., Sept. 20.—Thomas F.
