Washington���News has just been
received that tho Spanish flout, which
left Cmio Verde, accompanied hy the
Spanish braggadocio that the Ann'ri-
i;an cities on the Atlantic Coast u-ere
to be hoiiibarde'l. has as a' matter of
fact absolutely flod from the Held of
action and is for the present snfewith*
in the Spanish harbor ut Cadiz, where
it has arrived. This was evidently the
Spanish squadron that wns reported
from Lisbon yesterday, so that instead
of going out to protect Spanish inter
ests in Cuha and Porto Rico, lot alone
the att'Dipt to bombard the Atlantic
cities, the fleet has actually retired
from ihe Hold of aggressive waif**.'
and has hurried home. Never has
there been such a miserable attempt to
defend a. nation'* honor as that which
Spain li'ils put up on this occasion, her
proud hoisting having ended in shuffling nud retreat of tlm most discredit
alils character. It is hard to tell
whether the naval oliicials were relieved or disappointed hy the nowa that
cume.ltuo to both the Navy and State
Dc'pnitnieiits' that the Cup* Verde
sqiiildron . instead of bring, as waa
supposed, in thevicinity of Porto Rico,
and in actual engagement with Aclmir-:
al Sampson's fleet, had actually at ri veil j
at Cadiz, Spain.
Thesafeiv of the QitaOn from thej
aitaclt proposed by the Spanish, ship-
lying off Barbadoeds is now assured,
and the way is clear for the proseeii
lion of activo military operations in
Cuha without having to run the rink
of tho American army of occupation
beine cut oft hy the Spaniard*.
On the oilier hand it is believed thnt
no enduring pence can be assured till
the Spanish fleet is utterly destroyed,
and it now appears that in order to do
ihis the American sailors must make
np their minis to cross the Atlantic
Ocean and meet the Spaniards on their
own waters, a task very much more
difficult than that which has been an
ticipated of meeting them in American
Thn suggestion Is made by sonic
members of tho Navy Board that there
is yet the possibility that the Spanish
squadron may make a quick passage
into the Pacific by way of die Suez
Canal and attack Commodore Dewey's
United States fleet at Manila. Any
risk of that sort will hare to be countermanded.
Nothing hns yet been heard from
A liuirsl Sampson, but there is confident expeuitition that interesting news
will be leceivod from his squadron
within the next 24 hours. Whether
he mount, to make an attack on Peirto
Rico or not cannot he definitely ascer
Admiral Monteno, thn commander of
the Spanish fleet at Manila, and who
escaped from Cavile by running along
the shorn to the City of Manila with
his two sons, has been killed hy the
populace of the City, who were Indlg-
tlan*. st the manner in which hr* allowed th* American fleet to catch: him in
such an unprepared condition.
Tho hospital at San Rogue, which waa
filled with the wounded Spanish soldiers, was set on lire by the shells
from the American fleet and the
Sisters of Charity were burned to death
in their brave efforts to remove the
wontidod men from furl her danger
from American shells. This sad story
ef the whr is regretted on all aides.
Mnsssor'es aro reported to huve on-
enrred outside of Manila, the insurgents revenging themselves on ihe for
tner tyranny of tho Spnnittrl* by
butchering thn innocent Spanish women and children.
New York-The torpedo boat Win-
slow engaged three Spanish gunboats
off Cardonals Bay ou Monday afternoon. She dirablcd one and c.itne out
of the fray unscathed herself after her
plucky encounter. The shooting wns
brisk on both tide*, hut no fatalities
ensued. After the Spanish boat was
disabled the Spaniards withdrew from
tho assault of the torpedo boat, taking
refuge in Cardinals Bay.

It is stated that the owners of the
Monarch Mine, at Field, contemplate
putting a smelter in the valley below,
the mine. They will however, wait
till some mora improved method of
treating zinc-lead ores like those at the

Mr. Cnrlin, of Field, has great faith
in the mineral resources of that dis

developing his claim, the Robin Hood,
located on the north side of the track
while he intends doing work oil other
properties in .which he is interested.
On the Robin Rood he hits a lead of

when   thoy want to avoid an unpleasant i) ties ti 011, refuse to ����� ewer "011 the
grounds of public policy."   Excepting
in   the   case of war or finance no government is justified iu making such   u
reply to the members whom the people
lime sent to the   Legislature,   and  if
tbe House were, on  each occasion  on
which this shuffling reply is given  by
Premier Turner and his friends, to resolve that the reply is  unsatisfactory,
they would soon put a   stop   to such
cunthig humbug,    As a matter of fact,
in nine out of ten of the cases in which
the members of   the   Turner   Cabinet
give th's reply they are simply shielding the jobbery of theirfrieuds or hoodwinking members while another public "steal" is gjlng on.    This   is   the

Wasliiimton���Secretary Long sni.l
at theclosi, ot otHce hoirs today tlmt
up lo thnt time he hud received no
word rroin Admiral Dewey. He added,
however, thnt he tell no apprehension
over this luck ol ttood news because,
in tliu Hr-t place, reports could not be
expected with the caldes from Manila
cm ; and furthermore no fear was entertained as to Admiral Dewey's ability to maintain his position. There
was 110 doulit, the Secretary said, th.it
Admiral Dewey's Heel hid annihilated
the Spanish Meet, and had already accomplished much more. Admiral
Dewey was anpirently master ot the
situation at Manila.
It. wns aiiKuested to Secretary Long
that the shora butteries at Cavite and
on Corrijuedor Island mijjlit to a -er-
ious menace to the operation', of the
United State." fleet, but the Secretary
said he did not share that view, hold-
iuir that the strength of the Olympia
Vnd other ships was ample to make
llim master of Manila.
Madrid���At the Cabinet Council today I lie Queen Ruceut presided and
Premier Sujms'a explained the war
situation. He announced the safe arrival at Porto Rico of ihe Spanish
Transatlantic Company's sieamer Al-
phuliso XII. with strong reinforcements of troops an I a valuable cargo
of aiuuiiiiioti and supplies, She evaded
the American cruisers.
London-A mcasim* received here
states that Admiral Dewey followed up
his first victory by au attack on the
shore f nts, in which he silenced the
batteries of the Spaniards and landed
his men, thus flooring * s coud victory,
Manila was captured by the Aiueriuan
tleet afier a brisk engagement' nnd
tho Americans now control thePhillip-
lues. Th* government is being curried
on by Admiral Dewey. This is ihe
first news frotn Manila that does not
hear the stamp ol Spanish authorship.
How tho news reached here is not
stated, but possibly comes .over by
some swift merchantman. This private telegram contir.n* the news of the
destruction of the Spanish fleet, and
the einking ot the flagship Bsina
Tbe Spaniards report having defeated the insurgent bands iu Cuba.
It is reported that fire Spanish ship*
of war are without ammunition,
The Cuban Autonomist Congress
opened at Havana on Wednesdpy.
The Queen Regent of Spain is reported to be preparing lor flight owing to
the - indignation - of the people at the
way in whioh the war has been man
aged, and the threat* ol rSrolution.
There ia much speculation as to ths
movements of Admiral Sampson's fleet
(rom Havana.
The United State* cruiser Wilmington has landed, a party of marines at
Marin), ifi mil** from Havana.
New York Increasing anxiety is
noticeable in official circles as to the
movements of the Spanish fleet which
left Cape Vetdo. It is feared this fleet
will turn up suddenly at one of the
coast cities, or may be in its way to
the relief of Havana, or lo Porto Rico.
The latter suspicion accounts for the
activity of the portion of Admiral
Sampson's fleet in hurrying of to Porto
Rico with a view of intercepting the
Spanish squudron there, should that
be its point of destination, Another
suggestion ia that perhaps the cnem.
ia endeavoring to intercept the Oregon'
and the other two United States warships now on 'heir way up tho coast.
New York���The World has just
published nn extra with a cable message troin Hong Kong announcing the
arrival there of the United Status Rpy-
cnuo cutter McCullough, from Manila
The despatch suites that the Spanish
fleet of eleven vessels was completely
destroyed, hero were 300 Spanish
marines killed ami 4UU wounded. No:
a single mini on board the Aiuorican
fleet was killed, and only six were
slightly wounded in ihe engagement.
The whole ot the vess.-ls of the American fleet escaped uninjured, and after
the engagement with the Spanish fleet
evas over Admiral Dewey opened tire
on the forts that had been assisting
the Spanish ships in the engagement.
These forts were Boon silenced, and
Admiral Dewey lauded his men and
took possession ot the City.
Washington f ha Navy Deportment
has just received a despatch from Hong
Kong from the Commander of the Me-
t'ulloch, which has arrive,] there from
Manila wilh despatches and messages
from Admiral Dewey.
Key West -On Thursday evening
the United States gunboats captured
the big French liner Lafayette, while
she was trying to run iho blockade into Havana. International complications are feared with France as a result, as it is recognized 'hut this power is so heavily interested in Spain ami
sympathises so strongly with that king
ilom that proliahtv the French nation
would he only too glad to have some
i'en*onahle excuse for helping its neighbor in iho fray. Stronger colcr is given to this tear by tiie tact that the
Lafayetto helongel to the French Naval Reserve. The sympathy of Great
Britain with the United States in the
present war is, however, regarded as a
pretty certain check on France. Last
night ilie ullieials received instructions
from Washington to release tho'Lafay*
ette immediately, and conduct her to
Havana. It is belioecd this may end
the atlair.
New York-A despatch from Porto
Rico says "Tim main Spanish fleet
from Cape Verde is expected neredalh.
Great prepiira*ious for its reception tire
being uiuile. Orders have been received
to prepare 4U,0C0 ratio a for the Heel."
This notice, which emanates trou hi^b
Spanish olHcials, is probably mislead-
Nevertheless all indications
point to its truth. The harbour has
lieen cleared of vessels lo make room
for the aiich rage of the Spanish fleet,
d all merchantmen have been pulled
up under the shelter of the hills fearing
bombardment tomorrow by the Un.ied
States fleet under Admiral Simpson
The newsis corroborated of tin Spanish
��� learner Alphonso having arrived safely at Porto Rico with a large cargo of
provisions and ammunition. The
Isabella is the only Spanish warship
iu that port at the present time.
There have beon several arret* at
Porto Rico and deportation of United
States sympathisers.
Tho Aiueriuan fleet under Admiral
Sampson is expected al Porto Itieeo
day, and the bombardment of the place
will begin immediately It is now considered certain that the great and final
buttle between the Spanish nud American squadrons will take place oft Porto
Rico. Admiral Sampson   will   keep   u
sharp look-out for the appearance of
the S.anisli ships and on their being
sighted will immediately go out and
meet them. As thn ships which will
meet on both sides, should this surmise prove correct, comprise the flower
of tbe navies of America and Spain,
the battle gives promise ot being a
eri'ible conflict. It is not yet
known what particular ships of the
American fleet will take part in this
fight, but Capt. Sampson has detailed
inii< o-lni'-i for the co idiot 'ha
Iowa, of 11.410 ions.the most powerful
ship in the American navy, tbe flagship New York. 8,200 tons, Indiana,
10,188 tons, and the Puritan of 6000
On the Spanish .ide. if the reports
are true as to Porto Rico lieing the
point of destiny of the Spanish flee',
there evill probably be 'he Pelayo, of
D.II0II tons. Spain's best battleship, and
iiu* only liist elass liatllasliipslieowns.
Then conies the Carlos V. of S,iM>
ions, iho Visoaya, Cardinal Cisueros
Admiral O'licndo, Maria Theresa, each
7,000 tons and steaming -0 knots, and
tlm Chrisiolinl Colon ot 11,840 ions anil
a similar speed rata. The fleot is also
strong in torpedo bouts nud a supreme
effort will lie utudt* to get in the work
of these internal machine*.
Four Spanish warships are off Bar-
undoes watching for the United States
warship Oregon, of 10.288 tons, which
should pass there now at any time on
her way north.
The American cruiser Wilmington
put to flight and killed a party of
Spanish cavalry who were attacking a
lauding party near Matanzas. It is
believed that a large number of the
troop weie killed and wounded.

At whatever cost. Never were iustrun

At the end of seven hours from the

then was absolutely nothing left of

When it is considered that the
Spaniards had lost over 600 men
killed, and tha' all their ships to the
number of 14 wero utterly destroyed,
and also that th* Spanish arsenal at
Cavite wa* also blown up, and it. defence* demolished by American shot
and shell, it will become apparent that
th* victory of the United States Commodore Is oils of the most coinpleie ami
wonderful achievements in the history
ot naval warfare. Not a man on board
of ths American fleet was killed and
not a ship of ths Stars and Stripes was
damaged to any extent. Only'six men
of th* American forces were wounded
and the*, were all ou board the Balti
more. The wounds sustained by thein
were only (light.
The Spaniards fought nobly and
with desperate bravery. When the
Captain of ihe Spanish warship, Don
Antonio Ulloa, found that she could
not ha kept afloat any longer o
count of tbe manner in which she had
been torn about hy the United States
���hells he pluckily uailel her colours

a glorious tribute to the valour of the
Spanish arms. Her hull had been
complitely riddled by tlio shot and
(hell of the American gunnery, aud her
upper deck had been swept clean by
tha awful fusiUde which the Auieri
cons poured into her from their deadly weapons. Though their vessel wus
sinking beneath them the Spanish
marines continued pluckily to work
Ihuir guns as effectively as possible
till tha ship, and brave fellows on
board of her, sank beneath the waters.

New fork, L.tor���A special telegram from Sin Domingo states'hut.
the officials report heavy ctiiitioiiiiding
north of Monte Ohriato ami about five
miles from the Const. Tile firing is
terrible judging from thedisiau' boom
ing of the big guns. It is buliuved
here, and there seems'no hoiihi ai'om
it, that the great naval buttle which
has been expectel between tlio main
fleet* of th* United Stales and S, aiu
was begun this (Sunday) morning.
Admiral Sampson's fleer and the
Spanish fleet from Cape Verde were
both due at Porto Rino yesterday and
therfore th* awful c.a'mounding doubt*
less indicates that these fleets hate
met in an engagement whicli will be
th* most terrible and desperate in
modern warfare. This haitie will
bring the war to an eud at an early
date. Tho Spaniards announced
that they would make one more desperate effort to redeem the honor of the
Spanish arms and in this engagement
they will doubtless fight like dmnons.
As tha ships are so evenly matched the
result of this desperaio battle i* ��ig.r-
ly awaited and difi.iit. no.vi is
anxiously awaited by th* friends of
both powers.

this statcraint-is fnjly acquainted with

a riow to brfhgiug about u signal defeat of the Spaniards. What those
