IskTAfl-S Of Tilt BATTLE.

embraced in the fighting in Sunday's en
gagement embraces a semi circle of fully
seventeen miles. Ho far aa can be
gathered, the brush commenced at 8 :45
Saturday evening, by the firing of a
Nebraska sentry at Santa Mesa, opon
some Filipinos, who were deliberately
crossing the line, after repeated warn
ings, with the evident purpose of draw
ing our fire. The first shot from an
American eentry was evidently ac
cepted as a pre-arranged signal, for it
was followed almost immediately by a
terrific funilai'e along the entire Filipino
line on the north side ol the l'asig river.
The American outposts returned Ihe fire
with such vigor that the Filipino' fire
wa checked until the arrival of rein
All the troops in the vicinity were
hurried out, and Ihe Filipino ceased
firing for a half hour w hile their own re
inforcement came up. At 10 o'clock
the firing was resumed the American

ment, the Minnesota regiment, the
Pennsylvanian and Nebraskans, the
Utah battery, the Idaho, Washington
and Califoruians. the fourth cavalry,
the North Dakota volunteers, the Sixth
artillery and the Fourteenth infantry.
The Filipinos concentrated tbeirtorces
at three points, Calicacan, Santa Mesa
and Cahngalam. and maintained an in
termittent fusilade for some hours.
Thev brought artillery into action of
Calingalara at 10:30, but only one gun

able extent a howitzer, on the road be
yond Santa Mesa. The Third artillery
silenced the Caligalam battery by bring
two guns simultaneously, which were
followed immediately by volleys from
At about midnight there was a lull in
the firing, lasting until abuUt 3 :4o a. m.
when the whole Filipino line reopened

fire into the darkness (or 20 minutes and
then there was another lull until day
light when the Americans generally sd
vaoced. During the night, in response to Ad
miral Dewey's signals, flashed across
from Cavile, the United States cruiser
Charleston and the gunboat Concord,
stationed at Malabon, poured a deadly

the Filioino trenches, at Calicacan.

We arrived here on the 2Cth. and after

I visited the cathedral for which Lima
is justly famous. Lima is much prettier
than 'Callao and ia somewhat cleaner,
the principal cathedral face the grand
plaza and contains the remains of Pix
aaro. the founder ot Lima, who was
murdered in 1535, and Is now worshiped
by all gol Peruvians. The remains
are preserved in a glass case and ia
daily visited by many thousands. The
cathedral is a magnificent structure
built of adobe, but so plastered that it
resembles stone, the interior is sup-
oorted by twenty-seven stone columns
ninety feet tall and nine feet square.
The principal chapel ia about two hun
dred feet long and one hundred feet
wide, and at one end is a splendid mar

is filled with carvings representing tLe
