SORROWFUF SPECTACLE Presented by Returning Refugees at San- tiagoSome of*Them Naked, AH of Them keletonized by tIugor and Footsore. SAN'FIAGO, .July 17--Since 4 o'clock this morning a stream of refu'c has beeri pouring into the city, agree naked and all hnngry, skeletons and footsore. Many had fallen by the wayside. The town of Santiago presents a dis- real sight. Most of the houses have bcen .,ucked and the stores have all been looted, and nothing to eat can be had for love or money. In the streels of the city thiAnorning, at the entrench- meats, at the:breastworks, and at every hundred feet or so of the barbed x(,ire fences,, were the living skeletons of Spanish soldiers. Among tbe arrivals today were the (]el-man, Japanese and P,)rtuguese con- suls and their families the British and French consuls having arrived day be- fore ydsterday. Gem Pando was never here. but 3,500 men from Manzanilto arrived on July 3, making tim totalgarrison 7,000 The Harbor Defense. The contact mines in the harbor were removed tim day Admiral Cervera left, but two chains of electric mines, one from Estrella Point and one from Socapa, are still dcwn. The armament of the shore batteries of Santiago consists of five brass 6-inch mnzzLc-loaders, in the Morro fortifica- tions; two 6-inch lion' .ins, frmn .the cruiser Reina Mereedes, and three 21- centimetre mortars neverused--in the Socapa battery; two useless 21-senti- metre mortars, two 8-eentimetre muz- zle-loadexs and four 8-eentimetrc field pieces in the Estrella battery; one 57- miHimetre and one S5-millimetre Nor- denfelt, and one 17-mitlimetre IIoteh* kiss, in the Socaya lower battery, and two 6-inch Ihmtorias, two 9-ceutimetre Krupps and two 15-centimetre mortars at Punts Gorda.

In one case 5000 were crowded into one building, which was a regular pig sty, with a horrible stench. They used the water from the river, where soiledlothing was washed and all manner of filth is floating. The docks are crowded by incoming refugees, in a starving condition, awaiting the arrival in the harbor of the Red Cross Society's steamer State of Texas, as there are no eatables to be bought ih the city. The entrance of the refugees was quiet and peaceful, they viewing their wrecked homes philosophically as the fortune of war.

There were 17 passengers ou her list, and the amount M their earnings, ia gold dust. uug- rets and bank drafts, is estimated by he ship's officers at $3,000,0')(,. The larcs amount brought out by a single prospector is in the possession of N. b. Pickett, who has $80,000, principally in gold dust and nuggets. Pete ,Wybird admits the ownershio of $50,000; E.

The returnlnff miners say that it i idle for prospectors to go to the Klon, dike now. expecting to locate claims, as all the mining land of any value ]las ah-eadv bccu staked. The only manner in whi'ch claims cau now be acquired is said to be by purchase.

Among the passengers ou the St. Paul is Briff.-Geu.

VAslIINGTON July 18.--After three days of consultation between the presi- dent Secrete ry Alger and Gem llrooke, during which there was frequent come munication with Gen. Miles at Siboney, the details of 0re Porto Rkmn expedi- tion were perfected aud the expedition itself was gotten tmder way, Gen. Miles u'ith son:e artillery "rod roops, sailing today for Porto Rico on the converted cruiser Yale. to be followed quickly by an army of about 30.000 men. There are some notable differences 1 in the plan for this expedition, and I the stately naval pageant that sailed] away from Tampa, under Gen. Shaers command, to attack SantiAgo. First, there Will be practically no naval con- voys. The navy department has de- clared that they are unnecessary; that there is not a Spanish warship in the West ladies that dare thrust its bow out of port. In the second place, the epetition does not strt from one point: but will be divided among several ports, thns preventing the tremendous congestion that was encountered at Tampa in the effort to start the big fleet. Lastly, there will be no effort to get the ships away to-ether, but the transports will be allowed to find ttmir own way to theirdestiuation, without concerted nlovemcnts Gem Miles leads the wa. as the Yale hcadcd today from Siboney for Porte, 8'}0 miles distant. Gcn. Brooke will be the sceior o,icer in Miles' commaud, and upon him will fall the responsibility for the execution f the details of the campaign plans. I"|ag 'WIll Soot lle }Inlated. ]L is estimated that Gcu. ,Miles should arrive hy Wednesday night at the poiut selected for the landing, and wilt hoist the American flag at once ovcr Porto Rican soil The point chosen for his lauding is kept secret, as the general will laud before the full body of the expedition is at hand. and it is. conse- quently, not desirable that the enemy should'be able to a.,mble a supcrioi" f(n'cc to meet hhn. The distance from Charleston, whei-e the first body of troops for Miles' ex- pedition was to start today, is more than douMe the distance from Santiago to Porto Rico. so that "the transports whiche,uil from thc former tit 5, can carccty reach Gcn, Miles before the early part of next week. These Charles- ton troops are the first brigade of the first division of tile First Army Co-ps, and are commanded by Bri.-Geu (;eorgc II. Ernst. The brigade com- prises the Second Wisconsin, Third Wisconsin and Sixteenth Pennsylvania regiments. The purpose of the administration is to make the Porto Ricnn campaign a short one. An overwhc]miniz force will be thrown upon the island, andit js posble that a bloodless victory will Im accoLplished when the Spanish become convinced that they have no reasonable chance to resist successfully. The ex- pedition is to comprise 30,o00 men at the start, and it will be swelled soon to 40,000, and. if necessary, to 70,000 men, the equipment of the volunteer frames having now progressed so well as to warrant the statement that this num- ber )f men san be ready for serviee iu Porto Rico within a very short time. The Tampa Troops. The enttrc body of troops at Tampa will be taken, numbering about 13000 men, and including a lot of heavy and light artillery, under command of Gen. Rodgers. The expedition will be par- ticularly strong with artillery, as some of that at Santiago, commanded by Gen.
