THE BRITISH ARMY.
[Per Prfss Association.—Copyright.]
LONDON, September 24. Lord Wolseley has been presented with the freedom of the City of Glasgow. In the course of his speech in accepting the honor he said that the army was overstrained and out of gear, and was unable to effectively meet the demands made upon it. He urged the nation to insist upon the augmentation of the strength of the army, by which alone it could be rendered thoroughly efficient.
