in view of the information which the
Navy Board has officially received that

ships in the Spanish navy, have sailed
trmn Cadiz, and lhat their destination
is not'the Phillipiue I-lauii*, ns tiie

Washington��� No news is yet to

and Spanish warships off Tortnga

Port Au Pi-ir.ee. Hiiti-A groat sen
'salion was caused here today by the
airrivj.Vt-i the military cuininaudef of
1 lie Island of-Tnrtuga. (On tha north
coa.r bf Haiti) who brought word to
the Haitian War Department, that,
what appeared to he a desperate naval
engagement between the American and
.Spauieli fleets took place off that is'*
and on. .Sunday. Tiie comraandatii
reached Port de Paix from the Island
of TortugM in a canoe and reported to
the War Department that during the
whole of Sunday very persistent and
terrible cannons ling, denoting the
heaviest of naval guns in action, had
beet) heard in the east of the island,
ttid from the length of the duration of
the hooiuiag of big gnn�� and the intensity of tho firing, there wasasttong
presumption, serious engagement was
raging between some of tbe most powerful ship, of the Spanish and American navies. The thick fog at times
ina.'ln it impossible to distinguish any
vessels which might be engaged in the
It is believed that this shows that
Admiral Sumr.sou's United States fleet
has at length encountered one of the
divisions of the Spanish squadron,
probably the division whicli was reported 10 have eoiie north for the pur
pn.!- of bombarding the Atlantic Coast
Cities and which has not hitherto 'Ken
herd of since leaving Cape Verde. One
division of rhc Spanish squadron wss
reported, from the island of Cnracoa
orf tho coast of Venozuela. the otbee
day. snd it now appears that both ihe
divisions of the Spanish fleet are accounted for. Admiral Sampson was
la��t heard from lit Cpellsytien 011 his
return from Porto Rico towards the
Cuban Cca.t. and he would be off the
i.laud of Tortiigiis on Sunday with the
p.ution cf his fleet that be had taken
ran la meet the Spaniards and which
he used to bombard Porto Rico, In-
eluding thu big balt'i'ships New York.
Indiana, Puritan, aud lows, The sup
position '.hat h�� baa here encountered
the missing portion of tho Spanish
fleet, whose movements have hitherto
been so mysterious, is stre'ngt honed almost te . certniiiity by the fact that a
cablo message has been received from
St. Thomas staring that on Snnday
last Hi vessels slowly .steamed in a
westerly ilirectioo towards the north
uf Toitogu Island. Forty miles east of
St. Tlioiiuia one large strainer which
approached the laud distinctly shewed
:'m Spanish flag, so tbat ethers is no
doubt this was a powerful Spanish
siiuudron, and from its position then
it must have bisui in close proximity
to Admiral Sampson's United States
fleet. When Admiral Sampson there
Sore sailed last week to Porto Rioo for
the ostensible purpose of meeting th.
portion ofthe Spanish fleet, which
consisted of seven ships (and has since
gone to Canra.'oa) and which he expected to make for that point, he must
have hten within an ace of meet ing tbe
enemy in theshape'of this much larger
nnd more powerful fleet oil the co.1.1 of
Porto Rico, and both fleets must havs
sailed almost parallel towards the
Cuban Cosst, Sampson's fleet   leading
the way. His scouting snips probably
picked up a view of the vanguard of
the Spanish Squadron, ami Admiral
Sampson had evidently waited for its
approach off the Island of Tortugn
where there seems no doubt lhat tho
long expected naval engagement has
taken place if the story ot lha military
commandant of Tortuga is iru-. and
there is no reason to ibnbt it.
Washington���The official bulletin
board today failed to yield auv news of
the movements of t'asthree fleets, the
fl'.t under Admiral Sampson, the
United States Flying Squadron under
Admril Schley, and tho Spanish
squadron. I here is reason to believe
that the Department has not received
any information of moment as to the
position of any of the fleets referred to.
hut owing to the reports from Hayii 11 mi
St. Thomas, as to the reported engage
ment and the presence there of n big
fleet, news is awaited with breathless
anxiety, as the Spanish li'i-i as reported uiust have bi-eu a very powerful
one, and largely outnumbered ihe fleet
which Admiral Simpson had with him
on the oooasiiin of tiie engagement.
The tyunish fleet which was st Curucoa has sailed north. Admiral Sampson has detained ihe .Montgomery, St,
Louis, and Yale to waibh Mil report
its movements witli a view 10 luier*
ceprin.* it with the aid of the flying
squadron under Admiral Schley.
Admiral Sampson has instructions
to attack iivery Spanish fort and that
he must dostr.y or capture the Spanish fleets at all hazards.     ���

A. a result of ths indignaiion
throughout Spain at the manner in
which tbe war has been conducted the
Spanish Ministry under S.iga.ta has
resigned and the new ministry will
likely he announced today. It is pretty
certain that they will make a strong
effort to conduct the war in a more
aguressive manner than lias hitherto
been done and a better attempt will he
made to defend tbo prowess of the
Spanish arms.

Instead of cooperating with the
United States as was expected, it new
turns out that the insurgents of the
Phillipine Islands are decidedly un-,
friendly to the United Slates. This
attitude of the insurgents may lead to
complications of an unpleasant character.
On Board the Flagship Iuwa, off
San Juan, Porto Rico -The forts at
San Juan. Porto Rico, were bombarded by Admiral Sampson's fl.et this
morning the Iowa taking tbe place of
thn New York as flagship- The Spanish loss ia believed to have been heavy.
The Spaniards replied wilh a vigorous
and well directed tiro throwing sheila
right on board the New York and
Amphitrite. The United State, lost
two men killed and seven men wounded, after ihres hours hard fighting.
Admiral Sanipson then withdrew his
fleet und headed his ships for Key
West. In reply to enquiries as to the
result of the bombardment of San
.loan, he said: ���"I am satisfied with
the morning's work. I could have
taken San .Juan hut had no forceavail-
able to hold it after I would have taken
it. I only warned to administer punishment to the enemy. This has been
done. I came to look for the Spanish
Heet and to destroy it when I had
found it. I did not go to Porto Rico
specially for the purpose of bombarding San Juan."
The killed were: S*amon Frank
Widemark, of ihe New York, und Gunner Mali, of the Amphitrite. The latter died front his injuries accelerated
by the effects of ths extreme heat. The
names of tho injured are:-, Seaman
Mitchell. Priva-e Marine Nierkle, Apprentice Hice, Seaman Samuel Feltman,
who is very seriously injured. The
above-named were injured by the

London-Tho Right Hon. Joseph

last night at Birmingham, which is
pract.cally regarded as a challenge to
all Europe. He atiid Great Britain
inuat draw her Colonies into closer
union and maintain a bond of unity
wilh the United Slates. He made a

The mystery of womanhood Is full
of deep unanswerable enigmas. Why
should women be compelled to suffer
simply because they are women? Why
is it that tbe source of their highest joys
is at the same time the cause of their
greatest wretchedness, The very sttrib-
utes which make it
possible for women
and mothers .-.tso render them liable to the
utmost physical uii^crv
aud pain.
Th* suffering's of
body and rriiud caused
by some weakness of the dietirtclly feminine organs arc so almost universal
among women lhat the question might
well be asked: " Is this Nature's punishment for th." crime of being a women f"

Mr. John Hitch, of llldgetovrn. Tell.
IIoiv Uo ha I Spent Dollar tJpon
l.ollur In Vain Before Finding the
Medicine tliut Cured III,,,.
From the Standard, Ridgetown,
People who read from week to weak
of tho marvellous cures effected by the
use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills little
think that right in their midst exist
many who have been relieved from pal.,
and suffering by the use ot these won
derful little pills afier having suffered
untold agonies for months.
Mr. John Hitch, a man well and
favorably known throughout the
country, was ever ready when oppor
Utility afforded to sneak u word in
praise of those pills and wus never tired of recommending them to his friends.
A representative of the Standard, anxious to know of the causa of Mr..Hitch's
reeoiumeudutiou, called upon him hi
his home recently and upon telling thnt
gentleman the object of his visit Mr.
Hiich consented to nn interview. Thi-
story iu his own word* ia aa follows':
"In the winter of 181)1 I w,a6 taken
with a see ore attack of lu grippe, from
which I was confined to the bouse for
some time. This was followed by
severe pains and swelliugu of my lower
limbs. 1 consulted a physician and he-
told mo it was acuta rheuinitti-.ni. 1
continued under hia cure for about two
mouths. 1 was unable to stand alone,
but sometimes when I got started 1
was able to make a lew steps unaided.
The trouble was principally in my feet
and clung tome nil summer long. I
tried almost everything that friend.
suggested, hoping to gain relief, but
neither medicine taken inwardly tut
liniments applied externally gnve me
any relief. The pain was very grcai.
and I wns only too ready to try any
thing suggested. I spent dollars upon
dollars iu doctor's medicine, but all io
no purpose. The-luat week I was at
tended by a phy��iciuu it cost mo five
dollars, and hating about that time
read in 'he newspapers of the work accomplished by Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills, I concluded it was certainly
worth the experiment nud accordingly
purchased a box from u local druugisl
and commenced -heir use, discoiitmu
ing the doctor's medicine. This was
in June or July 189:!. Afier I had
taken tbe first box of tho pills I could
feel some change and after taking seven
boxes I hoi iced a great improvement
I continued taking thein uut 1 I bad
used thirteen boxes when I must say I
felt as well as I ever did iu my life.
Some of my customers who came into
my yard would ask me what I was do-
ing that I was looking ��i well (knowing the sick spell I had undergone) and
I would always tell them that Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills had wrought the
change. They are tho cheapest inedi-
cino I ever bought," said Mr. Hitch,
"and if I hud what I spent in other
medicines I could sit at esse this win'
tor. During the i ilerview Mrs. Hitch
was un occupant of the room nnd she
heartily concurred in what her husband said, and stated that for one
other member ol the family the pills
had been used with success in a caae
of severe nervousness. Mr. Hitch at
the time he was seen by the reporter
appeared to be in excellent health. He
ia nti years of age and a man who had
always been used to hard work.     He
