Havana, Dee. 20. Further details

rapid advauco of tho Insurgont army,
numbering about 12,0t 0 men, upon
Havaua, after forcing Its way through
the provlnco of Santa Clara and Into
tho provlnco of Mnutanzai.
In eplte of tho efforts of Captain

about 8,000 troops at his disposal, the

Tho fighting took placo amid burn

nature. At tlmea both troopa and In

withlu lighting distance of them and
uearly all tho firing waa at a very long

several gallant obarges through tbe

lug Is tormed u defeat for tbe Insur
gents, but as they succeeded in accoaa

Bpanlards in check while tho Cubans
pushed on to tho southward, the result
was leally a Cuban victory.

and action In spite of all tbe veteran

thu Cubaus soom, by some mysterious
meaus, to bear of It, and pretending to
fall Into a trap, puth their body of men
forward, skirmish with tbo troops,
draw tho Bpuulah forces upon Hum,
and then the Cuban army proper out
flanka tho Bpaularda and pushes stead
ily onward toward Havaua,
Admirers of tho Spanish general
'claim this Is bis plan of campalgu; that
he Is allowing the Cubans to get by

only for the purpose of eventually fall

Upon bis arrival In Havana this
evening Captain-General Campos made
known his belief that General Gomez
bas designed bis movement, which has
thus far proved bo signally successful,
merely as a raid Into bis enemy's
country as near to Havana as possible
for him to go, Intending to tight bis
way back. Campos believes the whole
aim of the Incursion was tbe destouo
